* ''Disney/{{Bambi}}''.

to:

* ''Disney/{{Bambi}}''.''Disney/{{Bambi}}'':
** Man are frightening beings who can kill animals without even touching them. One kills Bambi's mother.



* The original Felix Salten ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'' novel. Early on, humans are just [[CarnivoreConfusion another predator]], only they are the only ones capable of bringing down a deer (thus the deer protagonists' fear of humans). The deer then believe that humans are Gods, and only the cleverest of them have figured out that guns aren't just magic ("he is only dangerous when he has his third arm"). The humans' use of guns and dogs are a point of contention for the other animals, but mostly because it's just unfair. The ending of the book comes when the Old Buck [[spoiler:shows Bambi [[NotSoInvincibleAfterAll a human who has been killed by a gun that backfired]]]].
** Also, one of Bambi's friends, Gobo, disappears for a year before returning with a halter around his neck. He says he is now cared for by a human, and that man is not always cruel but can be a friend. The other animals are confused by this, some believing him, others denying it, and Gobo is also reluctant to admit he's now a pet. Later he sees a human in a meadow, and runs to it to show the animals the kindness of his master, [[spoiler:but the other human turns out to be a hunter who kills him.]]

* ''WatershipDown''. Humans are portrayed as a force of nature and their influence is everywhere. Every single plot point in the books and the state of all four warrens somehow relates to humans. For example, the entire justification for Efrafa's police-state regime is to conceal its existence from Men. In addition, the description of the human technology that threatens the first warren is [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraftian]] in style, and Fiver's mystical visions warning him of the coming of humans (a presumably unintentional parallel with the actual story "The Call of Cthulhu") emphasize this perspective.

Added DiffLines:

* Longpaws are not inherently evil in ''Literature/SurvivorDogs''. Many of the characters were Leashed Dogs until the Big Growl caused their owners to evacuate, and even many who weren't Leashed Dogs are neutral on longpaws. There are however "yellow-furred" longpaw who are depicted this way. They feed animals a yellow radioactive poison that makes them ill and kills them.

* Some Indigenous peoples of various places have mistaken European explorers for various things. The Native Americans mistook [[MistakenForGods Columbus for a god]], some tribes of Aborigines mistook white men for their own dead ancestors [[UnfortunateImplications (because white people look like]] [[TheUndead corpses]] [[UnfortunateImplications to dark skinned people who've never seen a white person before)]] and of course there's the CargoCult.

* The cause of the conflict between the humans and [[EldritchAbomiantion the monsters]] in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}''. The monster's first encounter with the humans was [[spoiler: massive patches of entropy and constant destruction spontaneously appearing as energy leaked through from another dimension, some of which move. It took them years to push through to the dimension of origin, in which time the affected areas spread exponentially, even to their "homeworld".]]

* The characters in ''Webcomic/TheBirdFeeder'', as "backyard birds," often observe and criticize the actions of the local humans, though some of them still rely on them for food (bird seed). The observed humans hardly ever appear in the comic, though their influence is often felt.

The non-human creatures will usually consider Man as AlwaysChaoticEvil, and treat it either with wary respect or an odd reverence as a [[PhysicalGod divinity]]. Whether it's born from [[TheydCutYouUp survival instinct]] or cultural baggage, most will be reluctant ''at best'' to actively resist Man's activities, let alone be curious to know them, lest one would suffer in the most merciless manner at the hands of Man's IndustrializedEvil. Possibly the GenreSavvy [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman non-human]] society realizes that committing to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu major action against Man]] would risk breaking the {{Masquerade}}, crossing some sort of MoralEventHorizon, or is [[TooDumbToLive just]] [[DoNotTauntCthulhu plain]] [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu suicidal]].

** Could be considered LovecraftLite in consideration that this is a Kids Film. Especially when both [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick [[spoiler: survive being dried out by the "Cyclops"]], get the crown, and after a mishap; meets Creator/DavidHasselhoff in a Baywatch kind of way.

** Eventually it went FromBadToWorse. Animals fleeing from the nomadic humans following them, led hominid species wandering further and further from Africa. Eventually we chased new prey in new regions, who we followed in turn to more unexplored lands. Thus mankind scoured and populated the Earth, while our children grew more intelligent with each generation. Once humanity gave up the nomadic lifestyle and embraced ever-growing permanent settlements we call civilization, their fate to be our CosmicPlaything was inevitable. Only a handful of creatures, like the dog and horse, were lucky enough to become a SlaveRace.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': [[spoiler:Humans are actually the real last angel and not the AmbiguouslyGay white haired {{Bishonen}} that you thought it was, and your fellow man will be the final enemy. And they actually succeed in causing the EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Though it's kind of an ItWasHisSled moment. Humans are different from all the other Angels in that they're the offspring of Adam, while the Lilim (humanity) are the offspring of Lilith.]]

** One of the proposed [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/sandrewswann-s-proposal SCP-001 ideas]] is something that indicates that reality itself is malleable, that there's no set rules or predictable grad unifying theory, and malevolent entities roam about that are remaking the universe as they see fit.
