* ''VideoGame/CapellasPromise'' has the Mother, who was originally thought to be a monster creating weapon before being revealed as having intelligence. [[spoiler:This might be a subversion due to the fact that Zanara fused with her, meaning he might be the reason that she gained intelligence.]]

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', the Grimm are mostly thought of as mindless monsters, but some centuries-old specimens have gained vast experience and know that humans are more powerful than they look. They do not attack humans on sight because they know that killing one human will just bring more, enough that the Grimm will be overwhelmed. Instead, they prowl the edges of the kingdom, waiting for the right opportunity...

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', the Grimm are mostly thought of as mindless monsters, but some as they grow older, they also grow larger, stronger, and ''smarter''. Some centuries-old specimens have gained vast experience and know that humans are more powerful than they look. They do not attack humans on sight because they know that killing one human will just bring more, enough that the Grimm will be overwhelmed. Instead, The eldest Grimm are opportunists, remaining patient and attacking only when they prowl the edges sense weakness in humanity. They're even seen directing younger Grimm and coordinating their attacks, showing an understanding of the kingdom, waiting for the right opportunity...battlefield tactics.

* The "Phoners" in Stephen King's ''Literature/{{Cell}}'' start out as mindless and vicious zombies, attacking each other and unaffected people alike, but gradually begin to form flocks, then a HiveMind, and eventually a collective with an elaborate plan to turn all the unaffected humans into Phoners.

** Vegeta is the only full-blood sayan, aside from Goku, who we've seen transform into a great ape, and it is probable other full-bloods transformation leaves their mental faculties intact. Goku suffered a serious head-injury as a child, altering his personality severely, and it is theorized by other characters that his ape transformation simply brings out his natural sayan savagery, meaning Goku probably remembers his [[KillEmAll original mission]] in that state. Goku's son, Gohan (half-sayan) is capable of following rudimentary instructions from those he cares about. He is still savage and unintelligent about it though.

** The fact that the icy, [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience blue]] X which once targeted Samus for her newly-found weakness to the cold (due to her now [[ItMakesSenseInContext part-Metroid DNA]]), start to run away from her soon after she recovers the Varia suit, which negates this weakness, [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything but not before a few of them suicide dive you, then the others flee when they see it's not hurting you anymore]].

It can evoke WhatMeasureIsANonHuman to the viewers, often involuntarily, whenever the monster turns out to be as intelligent as a human being (i.e. pretty likely sentient). The existence of this trope can mean that the antagonist had a motivation or goal simple enough to be mistaken for the behavior of a mere animal, so that many of its scenes could be acted by a NonMaliciousMonster without much difference. Until it does something unexpected.
