* One of the most enduring traits of WesternAnimation/FelixTheCat throughout his series is his kind-hearted, altruistic nature; if someone, man or animal, is in need of aid, be it standing in for a baseball player who got wrongfully thrown in jail, saving a clown from shooting himself, or overthrowing an evil dictator and his army of robots, he will never hesitate to help, and he shows virtually no signs of maliciousness or veangefulness (although he was a lot more rascally in his silent cartoons). At most, he just gets agitated at someone whenever they wrong him. He even holds no ill will towards his arch enemy, the Professor, and even helps him out if he winds up in trouble. The [[VanBeurenStudios Van Beuren]] Felix plays this trait up even more; in the opening of "The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg", Felix is handing out gold coins by the bucketful to the local poor, thanks to the help of his golden goose and her endless supply of golden eggs. And when the goose gets kidnapped by Captain Kid, her eggs are the last thing on Felix's mind—he's genuinely concerned for her safety, and he even tries to put up a fight against the pirate before he captures her.

* Another RareMaleExample in ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'' with Eli and spirits. His success as a thief comes from the fact that spirits absolutely adore him and will bend over backwards to do what he asks them for, and he's friends with them in turn.

* ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'':
** Nausicaä is one of the classic examples of this trope, perhaps even prototypical. She takes it much further than most others; she not only befriends cute wild animals but also horrifying battleship-sized insects, slavering-jawed giant dragonflies and so forth. Her compassion extends to people of all nations as well, so she really is a friend to ''All'' Living Things.
** The [[spoiler:Garden Master]] in the manga is a nasty subversion of the trope, as [[spoiler:he tends to a beautiful, perfect garden and can speak with his animals, but cannot comprehend violence and the human need to survive, and a prolonged stay within the Garden's limits will destroy the visitor's will and cause them to forget the outside world.]]

* This is a mixed blessing for Una in ''TheFaerieQueene'': On the one hand, an army of forest critters save her from being raped by Sansloy, but then they practically kidnap her and force her to stay with them so they can worship her until she's rescued by Satyrane.

* Justified for Francis Sandow in two novels [[spoiler:and a short story]] by RogerZelazny, but only for animals he's designed, on the planets he's created. When a lizard is momentarily frightened of him in one book, it shows he's entering enemy territory.
