* Compared to the other great apes, gorillas are generally more peaceful and don't eat any meat beyond the occasional insect.

* Compared to the other great apes, gorillas are generally more peaceful and don't eat any meat beyond the occasional insect. Granted, adult gorillas are large enough and strong enough that they don't have any natural predators aside from the occasional very desperate leopard.

->'''Dr. Alan Grant:''' They're not monsters, Lex. They're just animals. And these are herbivores.
->'''Tim:''' That means they only eat vegetables, but for you I think they'd make an exception.

** This trope is so prevalent that whenever herbivorous dinosaurs are portrayed attacking people with little to no provocation, viewers will believe they are being portrayed as [[AscendedToCarnivorism carnivores]] or [[PrehistoricMonster Prehistoric Monsters]]. As mentioned before, many large herbivores in modern times are extremely aggressive and wouldn't hesitate in killing you if they could, so there is no doubt prehistoric ones would do the same.

* Averted with the gurns, druffalo and brontos in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition.'' They won't attacked if they aren't provoked, but they'll fight tooth and nail if wounded.

One common exception for the herbivores, when they are portrayed as dangerous in fiction, is when they go on an AnimalStampede.

She uses cattle and rabbits being killed by farmers as a comparison to how powerless humans are against the vampires of ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''.

--> Letís go with the herd of cows analogy. Letís say these cows are aware Farmer Bob is slaughtering cows in his slaughterhouse. What can they do? They donít have the physical ability to track him in his world and punish him. Maybe, if theyíre really lucky, they can catch him off guard without his gun or truck and trample him. But in that scenario, cows representing humanity actually makes them more powerful than is correct. It would be more like bunnies [...] So youíve got a bunch of rabbits being killed whenever Farmer Bob is in the mood for rabbit stew. What can they do to bring him to justice? Answer: nada.
