Some smaller children and babies instinctively feel safer when held by big, strong men. It is suspected that they pick up on pheromones that tell them about health and testosterone. It also has noted neurological effects on the men in question, softening certain responses and hardening others.

* In ''Comicbook/RobocopVsTerminator'', Robocop pets a dog at one point and the dog responds in a friendly fashion. Since dogs [[EvilDetectingDog instinctively hate Terminators]], Robocop's companion takes this as proof that, whatever Robocop is, he's no Terminator.

* The main character in ''Franchise/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'' is a pretty bad mofo when it comes to other humanoids, but when he encounters a big, vicious, dangerous predator that could see in the dark and spent a lot of time in a cage they become instant friends, providing an example of this as well as "two of a kind" and a sense of kinship.
* During the transformation of the recently-resurrected [[Film/TheCrow Eric Draven]] into an unstoppable killing machine vigilante who makes Batman look like an ''actual'' pacifist, he pauses to scratch the cat that was left to fend for itself after he and his fiancee were murdered. The cat, in turn, licks his hand, apparently recognizing him even after he's been dead and buried for a year. (Cats have eyes, and cats have long-term memory, but Draven likely doesn't smell like he used to, besides having put on Harlequin-mask face paint.)
