* Ironically one of the few sizable herbivores to largely be this trope are gorillas, despite the KillerGorilla image. If not startled, attacked, threatened, or having their children harassed, they largely are docile and ambivalent towards humans and will go about their business. They can still be dangerous if agitated, especially a [[PapaWolf Silverback]] with his children or grandchildren in danger, but a majority of the time they much prefer to bluff-charge and scare a threat away than actually fight. Coincidentally, gorillas are also the most herbivorous of the apes and the meat they do eat mostly amounts to a few insects here and there.

to:

** Even domestic species can be far more dangerous than most realize. Despite popular image, cattle are largely not docile and even dairy breeds can be temperamental. Even if the breed lacks horns [[note]]And almost all breeds that do have horns in both the male and females, not just bulls[[/note]], they're still big, muscular, heavy animals that can headbutt, bite, kick, and trample a human easily.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/{{Subnautica}}''. The Ghost Leviathan is ''extremely'' aggressive. Turns out, it's a filter-feeder that eats plankton. It's just ''that'' territorial. [[spoiler: Played straight, and [[InterspeciesFriendship literally so]], with the other filter-feeding Leviathan, the Sea Emperor.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys'' {{Zig Zag|ged}}s it. Eliza easily makes friends with plenty of herbivorous animals, but she also encounters some aggressive ones as well, such as hippos and water buffalo which are true.

to:

* Zigzagged in ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'': most of the dangerous beasts they encounter are carnivorous and highly destructive, though the backstory of the [[SavageWolves Battle Wolf]] mentions how a colossal, herbivorous {{kaiju}} known as the "Death Gore" nearly destroyed all life on earth due to their unsatiable appetite for whole forests. Played straight among the incredibly powerful Eight Kings: non carnivorous ones like Horse King Herakles and the Deer King Sky Deer are the least aggressive of the eight (though by no mean less dangerous...)
