* As the page quote indicates, this is actually a survival mechanism in ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade''. Since you're now a vampire, you're going to have to assault people for blood. You can do it secretly as part of seduction, or you can do it in a flat-out ambush, but odds are, they never asked for it. But by admitting that what you're doing is awful and knowing when to stop, that keeps you from seeing killing as "just another thing" and losing yourself to [[EnemyWithin the Beast]]. Well, unless you're [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Sabbat]], in which case, good luck. ** Not quite. The quote's meaning is closer to "I hunt humans and drink their blood so I don't turn into a mindless, frenzied beast in desperate hunger, because that's not pleasant for anybody." It's one part IAmAMonster, one part IDidWhatIHadToDo.

* While he never outright says this trope verbatim, it's clear that [[PumpkinScissors Randel Oland]] thinks this of himself. --> '''Oland''': (''realizing the stray cats he's adopted are suddenly frightened of him'') Oh.

* [[spoiler: Vivio]] views herself this way near the end of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' when she discovers that [[spoiler: she's nothing but a clone made for the purpose of powering a massive battleship]]. She even stops calling Nanoha [[spoiler:"Nanoha-''mama''"]] and instead calls her [[spoiler:"Nanoha-''san''"]] since she doesn't view herself as human. [[spoiler:Bear in mind, she was ''six'' at the time]]. Nanoha helps her the way she knows best; [[WarriorTherapist some kind words]] and [[WaveMotionGun copious amounts of firepower]].

* In ''VisualNovel/CodeRealize'', [[PoisonousPerson Cardia]]'s earliest memory is of her father telling her that she must never leave the isolated mansion where she lives and must remain alone because she is a monster. Given that contact with her skin will melt just about ''anything,'' including living flesh, she believes it without question.

* In ''Disney/BrotherBear'', Kenai spent a great deal of the movie believing that bears were savage beasts [[spoiler:due in part to a bear being involved in his brother Sitka's death]], until after being transformed into a bear he started learning more about them. Upon learning that [[spoiler:the bear he had killed in vengeance for Sitka's death was Koda's mother]], he realized that ''he'' was the real monster. * The Beast from ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' believed this about himself as the reason he could never earn the love of a woman as per his CurseEscapeClause, especially with the fact that his mind became more beastly over time. It wasn't so much his appearance than his anger and selfishness that initially made Belle despise him. Upon getting CharacterDevelopment, Belle started seeing him in a different light. * In ''Disney/LiloAndStitch2StitchHasAGlitch'', this is a reformed Stitch's fear, believing that he's still a dangerous destructive creature, to the point that he chose to go into self imposed exile so not to harm anyone. What he didn't know was that he was actually going through seizure episodes that caused him to freak out.
