* Subverted by Doomsday, the [[TheDCU DC Comics]] character who ''killed Superman''. In one of his first appearances, while he was still wandering aimlessly through a forest, [[LickedByTheDog a deer came up and nuzzled his hand]]. Doomsday, of course, broke the poor deer's neck. He did the same thing to a bird that landed on his palm.

* Mia from ''WesternAnimation/MiaAndMe'' is able to bond with unicorns in Centopia, which are said to be shy around most other elves, and also understands their language. Panthea's pet cat, [[CatsAreMean Ziggo]], also seems less hostile towards her compared to other characters that aren't Panthea. This aspect of her character is even more pronounced during the second season, when Mia is staying at her grandfather's farm during her summer vacation, getting along with the animals there and even bonding with a horse that had difficulty trusting humans due to his bad experiences with his previous owners.

* Alphonse Elric in ''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist''. He calls combining animals with alchemy "the most depraved sort of alchemy there is" (though that is more from their [[spoiler: traumatic experience involving Nina, an alchemist's daughter, being turned into one]]) and Al mentions that he and his brother would always bring in stray animals a lot and beg to keep them as children. Al even spends the entire episode trying to look for a place to keep the cat. When Wrath is fooling around with a mouse and trying to torture him, Ed tells him that animals aren't his play-things and makes him release it.

* 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.
* Fluttershy from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' certainly gets along with the animals, acting as a loving mother figure to everything in the animal kingdom. Justified, as it's her job to care for the animals surrounding the town, be they cute bunnies or the guardian of the underworld. And even animals who have never met her before fear her stern gaze or a harsh scolding from her; everything from a full-grown dragon to a cockatrice that was [[TakenForGranite turning her to stone]] has backed down. Her tendencies gets explored in the episode "Bats!", where Fluttershy tries to defend fruit bats from being driven off of Applejack's farm, even when they were going to destroy her crops. While it takes some persuasion, Fluttershy is ultimately portrayed as in the right.

** Harley Quinn was able to tame a pair of ''hyenas'' who she keeps as pets. (Of course, this is partially because she was in charge of feeding them.) And when SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is going to nuke all of Gotham, not planning on going back for her just hurt her feelings, not going back for their friends just made her upset, but not going back for "the babies"? Full betrayal that ends with her ''trying to kill him.''
