* [[Webcomic/HisFaceAllRed Emily Carroll]]'s ''Through the Woods'' has "The Nesting Place", where [[spoiler:"Rebecca" is actually TheWormThatWalks [[FaceStealer inside Rebecca's stolen skin]] and wants Bell's skin for her children, so they can leave their spawning pool]]. Bell seizes on this and [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath saves herself]] by horrifying the monster with stories of the [[TheyWouldCutYouUp dangers]] its children would face.

* Discussed in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', when Stan speculates that this may be going on with a recently killed bear, elaborating right up until the moment that he spots testicles. "There's no room for you in our stories!"

* In ''Literature/{{Franklin}} and the Green Knight'', Franklin and Snail find the "magic cherry tree" and then start getting pecked like crazy by a seemingly vicious warbler bird. It turns out that she's just protecting her eggs, though once Franklin and Snail state that they don't want her eggs, she becomes positively pleasant. The same is also true of Eagle beforehand, which Franklin equates with the monster from the Green Knight story and draws his paper sword as if to fight her. She tells him that she has no interest in fighting him, gives both him and Snail a ride, and later says she has to go because she needs to take care of her eaglets. This also happens with a bird dubbed the Wily Winged Beast in the stage show ''Franklin and the Adventures of the Noble Knights'', who is NotEvilJustMisunderstood and gets her own song about it titled "Misunderstood."

* The chimera ants of ''HunterXHunter'' fit this trope in several ways. Most of them kill humans simply to feed and protect their Queen Mother, who in turn is doing it all for the wellbeing of her progeny. After the King is born, the more noble ants protect and nurture him in the same way, even organizing a sort of country-wide Battle Royale to find him worthy prey.

* Not quite a monster, but the weasel that infests the school and makes the janitor miserable in ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' turns out to be "a ''girl'' weasel!" and to have been looking for a nest all along. She is subsequently adopted with her young as secondary mascots.

** ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''. The episode "The Devil in the Dark" uses this plot. While the Horta are neither cute nor cuddly (they look kind of like living lava flows[[note]]or that's how the story describes them; due to the limited special effects budget, viewers may be excused for thinking they look more like lumpy and somewhat dusty Oriental rugs[[/note]], and the children are still unhatched eggs at the point of the episode), Spock's relaying of the mother/broodwatcher's emotions is one of the most powerful moments in ''Star Trek'' history and the civilized resolution to the conflict is one of the happiest ones. (As a side note, the creature remarked that it found a humans' appearance "revolting".)

** Also in ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'', Blue (or Green in the original Japanese) tried to catch a Kanghaskhan, but the Kanghaskhan would not stay in the Poké Ball. Red revealed why: it had a baby cub, and it was hurt.
