* The cast of ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'', who are animals but behave like humans, sometimes have things like this happen to them. For example, in one episode, Mr. Cat pounces on a ball and plays with it like a real cat.

* Happens in the ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' series. Once, while morphing seagulls, they found it hard to maintain a train of thought because they kept greedily eyeing every dumpster with a half-finished bag of chips sticking out as they flew over.
** Actually, happens at least once a book, what with it trying to be educational and teach kids about different animal instincts.

** Every time they morph seagulls, HilarityEnsues as they find it hard to maintain a coherent train of thought because they keep greedily eyeing every dumpster with a half-finished bag of chips sticking out as they fly over.



*** On a related note: Marco, having anticipated dog morph to be pretty much the same as wolf form, was caught off guard by the domestic dog's urge to goof off. (''And dogs, they want to have fu~un, Oh dogs, just want to have fu~un...'')
** Once Cassie was almost eaten by Tobias [[spoiler:trapped]] in hawk morph when she morphed into a squirrel for the first time and was temporarily overwhelmed by its instincts as a prey animal.
*** Speaking of Tobias, one of his major character struggles is trying to maintain his humanity despite being trapped in a (fairly)-permanent hawk form.
** The termites. At first they were fine, until they got near the hive and were hardly able to assert their will over over the Queen's control.

Added DiffLines:

** Marco once accidentally ate Ax when he was a cobra and Ax was a spider. He stopped himself from swallowing, but Ax had to emergency-demorph as Marco's fangs had poisoned him.
