* 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.

* ''The Movie Monster Game'' for the Commodore 64 has this as one of the objectives. As soon as the parent finds the baby, the InstantWinCondition has the closing scene where everyone realizes the monster just wanted to recover the baby. Available to all characters, even the marauding military robot and pollution-spawned blob creature.

* In ''Animation/LeafieAHenIntoTheWild'', a hen who raises an orphaned duckling learns this about the weasel who had killed the duckling's parents and nearly her on one occasion, having accidentally discovered the baby weasels and realizing they are hers when the weasel screams at her to leave them alone. This leads to both mothers reaching an understanding with one another, both protecting their child/children. [[spoiler: In the Korean ending, which was deemed too sad for most translations, after the duck leaves with his new flock the hen consents to letting the weasel kill and eat her, as the weasel is starving and cannot nurse her babies without food. The weasel is clearly shocked by this gesture, and is in tears when she kills the hen, having no other choice.]]
* There's a quick bit in ''WesternAnimation/{{Pocahontas}}'' where John Smith is about to shoot a huge, menacing bear. Pocahontas stops him, and the pair follow the bear at a discreet distance to a cave, where they see it is a mother with two cubs.
* ''WesternAnimation/BrotherBear'' has the protagonist find out late in the film [[spoiler:that the bear he killed was the mother of the bear cub who's been following him around]].
* ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' has dragons continually raiding the Viking village of Berk, but Hiccup and Astrid discover [[spoiler:that the dragons are trying to feed a huge Queen Dragon who otherwise would have eaten them.]] Thus in the climax, it is only when [[spoiler:dragons and humans work together]] that they are able to end that threat and a new alliance of the species is born.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime: The Great Valley Adventure'', the heroes (a bunch of young, talking herbivorous dinosaurs) accidentally lose one of Duckie's parents' eggs in a nest in the Mysterious Beyond. They pick one of the eggs, take it back to the Great Valley, and take care of it themselves, but what finally hatches out is a baby Sharptooh (specifically a ''Tyrannosaurus rex''). Sharpteeth have been [[BigBad antagonists]] since the first movie but they decide to keep him, call him "Chomper", and go on their merry way (they become friends and Chomper inadvertently saves their lives). But they end up getting pursued by not only one full-grown Sharptooth this time, but two - the [[MamaBear T-Rex mommy]] and the [[PapaWolf T-Rex daddy]]. But upon the returning of their baby, they end up not hurting the protagonists and actually save them from "eggnappers", smaller, vicious egg-stealing dinosaurs who had caused the entire mess in the first place when they took Duckie's parents' egg. [[TheBusCameBack Both Chomper and his parents return in the fifth movie.]] While the gang hides from them, another unrelated Sharptooth stumbles across the island and hunts them down. Chomper attempts to aid them and the new Sharptooth turns its attention towards him, just in time for his parents to show up and beat the snot out of it. To round it all off, Littlefoot saves Chomper's life in the process, so his parents do not harm any of them.

* Garganuta are overwhelmingly large monsters found in the Kara-Tur setting of ''TabletopGames/TheForgottenRealms''. They dwell on remote islands and rarely bother humans, but one way to ensure they ''do'' is threaten their offspring. Gargantua have been known to swim ''thousands'' of miles if they have to if their hatchlings are kidnapped, coming after the abductors in a fury resembling a force of nature. (Which they ''are''.)

* Comes up in a quest in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''. If you go to the Museum off Witchcraft, you happen upon the dismembered remains of a Gunner private just outside with an ApocalypticLog, recalling how her squad was attacked by... ''something'' and they were forced to flee inside. [[spoiler:Inside the Museum is a gigantic Deathclaw who serves as a boss. After killing it, you find out that the giant monster followed the squad all the way from Lynn's Wood (several miles away) because the squad stole the Deathclaw mother's's eggs, and of the egg cluster, only one is left intact. You can hand it in to the Gunner's client for a hefty sum, or return it to the Deathclaw nest. If you choose the latter, a slightly smaller Deathclaw (presumably her mate) pops out just as you go to put it back, and he leaves you alone, knowing you're just trying to return her baby. [[PapaWolf If you try to take it back, however...]]]]
