** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqiBYebop8c Draft horses]]. You would have more danger riding a pony. Such a calm, patient demeanor is a deliberate part of the breeding for something that is as strong as we could make them. [[http://www.gentlegiantsdrafthorserescue.com/ Available for adoption]].

** His successor with the same name since ''Tekken 3'' (King II) took up the mantle and the trope, seeing that he was one of the children raised by the first King before his untimely death against Ogre. He resumes being the {{Face}} for the wrestling industry and be an idol for the children watching him while resuming to donate the money he got from wrestling to the orphanage that raised him, and other orphanages.

** African goliath beetles are among the heaviest insects in the world and as long as 3 inches, but are a lot like rhino beetles in temperament. Children in Africa will keep them as pets.
** We can also say all the same about stag beetles.



* European hornets are big and scary-looking and are known to eat their smaller wasp cousins, but actually prefer to avoid conflict. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Just don't piss them off unless you want to be dealt a sting that REALLY hurts like hell.]]
** Unlike their terrible power in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', Tarantula Hawk wasps are two inch long docile nectar-sippers[[note]]They hunt tarantulas for their baby to feed on. It avoids eating anything important first to make sure it's meal lasts.[[/note]] and only the female stings when threatened. They only need to sting once because it will hurt and it hurts '''bad'''. The Asian and Japanese Giant Hornet, not so much. At the very least these two will click their mandibles before they start trying to kill you.

]] The larger Asian giant hornet, on the other hand, is generally an aversion.

* Compared to the smaller honeybees, bumblebees are docile and prefer to ignore other animals unless provoked. This is spite of the fact they are able to sting repeatedly without injuring themselves due to their stingers lacking barbs.

* Giant stick insects can reach nearly two feet in length, making them among the biggest insects in the world. Fortunately, they are completely harmless, feeding only on vegetation.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/StrokerAce'': Arnold, Torkle's personal driver. Everything he says comes out as a polite suggestion, and he bears no malice toward anyone in the film. Yet he towers over every other character and is strong enough to lift one side of a racecar so that the pit crew can replace the tires. Did we mention he's played by the same man who played [[Film/PoliceAcademy Hightower]] above?

* ''Corruption of Champions'' have several, [[GiantWoman most of them being women]]. The largest of them all is Venus, a freshwater turtle-woman who grew from toxic run-off from the Demons' factory and is now so big that her shell looks like a small island. And then there's Vala, a Faerie who grew from the same gunk that grew Venus but was forced to by a horde of Imps led by Zetzaz, the first imp you meet in game. While she's very small at only 4 feet, she's gigantic compared to the rest of the Faerires, who only grow to be 3-5 inches tall. Vala can get even bigger (enough to hold the PlayerCharacter in her hand) in one of her sex scenes if the ghost Shouldra is with you, due to her spell misfiring. Again.

* The Ohmu from ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'' are whale-sized BigCreepyCrawlies who look terrifying, but are quite docile and friendly [[spoiler: and have the power to resurrect people]]. Unless [[BewareTheNiceOnes you provoke them to attack]]...

* [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Bigfoot and its kin]] are sometimes thought of as this, though with creatures like the Yeti or the Yowie it's often a lot more debatable. With Bigfoot at least, it's very rare to hear about eyewitness reports where it gets violent--indeed, many reports end with the creature being just as afraid of the witness as the other way around!

* Umf the rat of ''Webcomic/{{Scurry}}''. The mice accept him as a member of their colony mostly due to his gentle, affable nature, despite being huge even by rat standards.
