** Rubeus Hagrid has raised a giant spider (Aragog), a baby dragon (Norbert), and a three headed dog (Fluffy). He breeds the aggressive and dangerous Blast-Ended Skrewt hybrids and would never believe that anybody doesn't love them as much as he does -- and he rather underestimates how dangerous they can be. Hagrid's half-giant heritage gives him some natural strength and dexterity for dealing with dangerous creatures but it constantly gets him into trouble. Tom Riddle used Aragog to frame Hagrid for opening the Chamber of Secrets and Hagrid got some bad publicity from the Skrewts, threatening his job as a professor teaching Care of Magical Creatures.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', the Stark children (including Ned Stark's [[HeroicBastard illegitimate son Jon Snow]]) each adopt a direwolf pup of their own near the beginning of the series when a litter of pups are found by the two eldest kids, Robb and Jon. The six pups quickly grow into powerful beasts the size of small ponies, proving to be [[UndyingLoyalty loyal companions]] to each of the six Stark kids, Stark family, and their friends but the wolves can be hostile to anyone posing a threat to their masters or the family. Robb calls his pup "Greywind," Jon calls his pup "Ghost," Sansa names hers "Lady," Arya calls hers "Nymeria," Bran names his "Summer," while Rickon calls his pup "Shaggydog." Each pup and child share personality traits and a strong bond. The pups also have a strong connection to each other, also representing the bonds each of the six kids have to one another. Each of the kids (aside from [[spoiler:Sansa, who lost her wolf early]]) are powerful wargs with their wolves.

** That same supplemental material reveals that Rancors are FluffyTheTerrible of the GentleGiant variety; they're sort of like big, loveable apes with strong parental instincts. The particular Rancor from the movie fell victim to Jabba the Hutt's prejudices; because it ''looked'' big, mean, and nasty, he ordered it starved and mistreated so that it would make a good show when he threw people into it's pen.

* In ''Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'', Newt Scamander doesn't tame them ''per se'', but is supremely talented at handling all manner of magical creatures. One of the beasts that he gives free run of his enclosure is a Nundu, a supremely dangerous plague-breathing feline that ordinarily takes a full hundred wizards to subdue -- ten times more than a mature dragon.

* The Sole Survivor from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' can gain the Wasteland Whisperer perk and with it can pacify any mutated animal below their level. This includes [[BearsAreBadNews Yao Guai]] and ''[[TheDreaded Deathclaws]]''. Sadly, this is only a temporary ability that only works as long as the Sole Survivor has a weapon drawn. With the Wasteland Workshop DLC, the Sole Survivor can build traps that allows him/her to catch mutated animals at settlements and use them as guard beasts. So it's quite possible to have half a dozen Deathclaws roaming around Sanctuary to act as guard animals.
