Some animals, like [[PrettyButterflies butterflies]], dolphins, deer, [[PlayfulOtter otters]], [[PandaingToTheAudience pandas]], [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins penguins]], [[NiceMice mice]], and [[EverythingsPreciousWithPuppies dogs]] (aside from a few breeds), are usually portrayed as good, friendly, or nice. Some animals, like [[ThreateningShark sharks]], [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent snakes]], [[SpidersAreScary spiders]], [[BatOutOfHell bats]], and [[YouDirtyRat rats]] are usually just portrayed as bad, mean, or evil. Others animals that typecast as bad, like cats, ducks, parrots, [[SavageWolves wolves]] [[note]] [[NobleWolf usually]] [[/note]] and humans, can just as easily be either/or in stories. Some animals, like bears, bees, pigs, rabbits and hares, monkeys, foxes, owls, and birds of prey (hawks, eagles, and falcons), can be either/or.

** ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' brings it back around to this; the Maximals all turn into either mammals or birds (until Dinobot and Blackarachnia become Maximals themselves), while the Predacons all turn into either reptiles or arthropods. There are a few fish on both sides, though, and at least one mammalian Predacon in Ravage. The theme was especially notable in regards to the Fuzors, who had MixAndMatchCritters for beast modes -- Maximal Fuzors included Torca (orca/elephant), Bantor (tiger/mandrill), and Silverbolt (wolf/eagle), whereas Predacon Fuzors were guys like Terrorgator (alligator/turtle), Skyshadow (dragonfly/lizard) and Quickstrike (cobra/scorpion).

** The Anime features an episode where Ash's Pokémon and Team Rocket's Pokémon are both stranded on a tropical island. It's revealed that Ekans and Koffing are actually quite friendly when they're not busy trying to capture Pikachu and were just trying to make their trainers happy. In fact, it's only Meowth that's willingly evil.

Added DiffLines:

* The binoculars in ''VideoGame/FarCry3'' identify whether an animal is a herbivore or a predator, the distinction being whether or not they'll attack (e.g. a buffalo normally eats grass and is a herbivore, but is marked as a predator because it attacks those provoking it.)

* ''VideoGame/RocketKnightAdventures'': Depending on the game, Pigs (Original), Lizards ([[Main/SegaGenesis Genesis]] Sequel), and Wolves ([[Main/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]] Game) are evil, while the possums (with the exception of the villainous [[Main/EvilCounterpart Axel Gear]]) are good.

* In ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'', the Bees are pacifists and would rather tickle people than sting them, but the Wasps play the BeeAfraid trope straight.

* ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', formerly ''Dinosaur Planet,'' has the antagonistic Sharpclaws, a race of anthropomorphic theropods, led by General Scales, an anthropomorphic tyrannosaur despot. Other hazards include non-anthropomorphic tyrannosaurs and Galdon, a bizarre insectoid dinosaurian ''thing'' that also appeared to be some kind of carnosaur hybrid. [[spoiler:The only really evil mammal is [[HijackedByGanon Andross]].]] Fox's allies are pterosaurs, ceratopsians, and other herbivorous dinosaurs. [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers And the odd mammoth or two.]]

* In the wizard duel scene of ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone'', Madam Mim turns mostly into traditionally evil animals like a crocodile, a cat, a fox, a rhinoceros, a snake and a dragon (although an elephant and a chicken are also thrown in the mix), while Merlin turns into traditionally good ones like a tortoise, a mouse, a rabbit, a caterpillar and a walrus (the only forms that actually have weapons are a crab and a goat).
