*** Arguably something of a subversion, since there's some pretty strong hints (like You '''utterly''' traumatizing Greebo, [[{{Badass}} the death that walks like a cat]]... and yes, the kitten's name is 'You'. As in, 'Hey You') that Granny and the kitten are kindred spirits; there is, after all, very little chance that Granny Weatherwax could tolerate a stupid animal. You, like her mistress, happens to other people.

* Daryl Dixon of ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' is probably the biggest {{Badass}} in the whole crew. Largely remorseless, crossbow wielding, [[NotUsingTheZWord Walker]] killing machine. And he's the first person who can calm [[spoiler:Lori's]] baby, who he affectionately dubs "Little Asskicker".

* Epona warms up to BadAss Link quite early on in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', and the two help each other escape from the (repossessed) Lon Lon Ranch in the future.

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', the black-haired antisocial [[StrawFeminist ultra-feminist,]] hard-ass girl Susan finds herself to be the unwilling target of the cat-hedgehog hybrid Jeremy's affection - and, according to a certain background image, the affection of cute and fuzzy animals in general. After CharacterDevelopment set in and she [[DefrostingIceQueen learned to be more open with others]], she became more of a normal-feminist {{Badass}} DeadpanSnarker. The hedgecat was right!

* In ''JakIIRenegade'' the [[MixAndMatchCritter crocadog]] doesn't like anyone except the kid and our [[TookALevelInBadass newly badass]] hero. Jak doesn't seem to mind.

** In a similar vein, Michonne is introduced as a cold, anti-social loner who makes no attempt to mingle with the rest of the group. Carl is the first person to take a shine to her, and one of the few people she's ever opened up to about her past. [[spoiler: By season 6, the two are officially surrogate mother and son.]]

* In a ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode entitled "Dog of Death," Homer comes across as uncharacteristically heartless when he refuses to pay for a life-saving operation for the family dog (not wanting to give up his beer money). But after the dog adorably licks his hand, Homer groans and grudgingly agrees to the operation.

* In the TV show version of ''CliffordTheBigRedDog'', Clifford seems fond of RichBitch LovableAlphaBitch Jetta and often licks her, which she usually finds disgusting. Given that he's...larger than the usual dogs, Jetta may have a point there.

* Subverted in ''ComicBook/ExMachina'' by Brian K. Vaughn. Mitchell Hundred, aka The Great Machine, has the ability to talk to machines and tell them what to do. He notes in one issue that since he gained his power, animals no longer like him. In the same issue, his ArchEnemy, Jack Pherson, is introduced. He has Mitchell's power, but instead of machines, [[NotSoDifferent he talks to animals]].

* It has been established in DCComics that ''ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}'' is liked by {{Superman}}'s dog Krypto. It's probably a side effect from Catwoman's having a knack for animals of all sorts, but still...

* In {{ComicBook/Monstress}}, Kippa voluntarily followed Maika when she broke out of the Cumaea slave prison, because she's "good at killing people" and would therefore make a good protector. Even after Maika[[spoiler:, in a fit of Horror Hunger, eats a child right in front of Kippa, and the subsequent times that Maika fights off said Horror Hunger for Kippa's sake, or uses it to kill an enemy,]] Kippa seems to instinctively know that Maika cares for her, and sticks by her even in dangerous situations. (Although it doesn't stop her from temporarily running away when she knows her life is in danger from the Monstra.) Maika is surprised by this, but it ultimately wins her over.
