Humans are not completely exempt, though these occasions are often solely limited to life-or-death situations where the pressure regresses the mental state to a fight-or-flight mindset; focus on surviving, and survive at any cost.

** Now, watch Sam and Florence's instincts [[ValuesDissonance crash into one another]]; what Florence the social predator sees as deferent behavior from a lower-ranking pack member is considered to be nigh-heroic alpha male behavior by Sam's species (provided you do it to your enemies; Sam got chased off his homeworld when a stunt like this got out of hand and ended up seriously inconveniencing ''his own'' royal family).
* From ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' comes Krosp III, Emperor of All Cats - basically, a cat with human-level intelligence, speech, thumbs, and the ability to walk erect... he'd like to claim that his 'cat-instincts' have no hold over him, but Agatha rather enjoys proving otherwise.

** Now, watch Sam and Florence's instincts [[ValuesDissonance crash into one another]]; what Florence the social predator sees as deferent cowardly behavior from a lower-ranking pack member is considered to be nigh-heroic alpha male behavior by Sam's species (provided you do it to your enemies; Sam got chased off his homeworld when a stunt like this got out of hand and ended up seriously inconveniencing ''his own'' royal family).
** More recently, a character from the long-scrapped uplifted chimpanzee project was introduced. Despite his enhanced intellect, he's still hyper-aggressive, throws or hits things when upset, and considers eye contact threatening behavior, leaving him completely unable to read most other sapients' social cues and/or interact safely with society.

* Keaton from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' is a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] who frequently tries to hide his more dog-like habits when he's in his human form. The most common example is him trying to deny the fact that his tail wags when he's happy, but Keaton also does things like state that he ''guesses'' he "doesn't mind" when Corrin brushes his fur in a somewhat {{tsundere}} manner (if invited to Corrin's castle quarters).

* In Anime/PomPoko, the tanukis can disguise themselves as humans but can only maintain it for so long, and they turn back into their true forms whenever they overexert themselves or get distracted since, to them, humans have a much more exhausting lifestyle.

* In a ''Literature/DragonMagazine'' expansion to the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' setting of ''TabletopGame/{{Mystara}}'', the [[CatFolk Rakasta]] were given a mythological origin that was taken straight out of the Cat-Maiden above under mythology. This being AD&D, the mother-goddess of the Rakasta actually went on to become [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Bastet]] on Earth until Christianity wiped out her worshipers and she returned to Mystara in a snit.
* In the ''TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness'', the Midnight Circus has [=McTargart=] the Dog-Faced Detective amongst its freakshow. Despite his appearance, with a grotesquely canine snout in lieu of a face, he's pure human. He just has a very grotesque birth-defect. Despite this, he ''still'' has a tendency to act like a dog in times of stress.
* Meanwhile, in the ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'', this is a drawback amongst skinthieves so common that it actually has its own aspect dedicated to it; the Strong Instincts aspect. Strangely, it's not an entirely negative trait.

* On ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' Mr. Herriman, a rabbit, has an addiction to carrots that he's ashamed of. Not to mention his fear of dogs, which is so strong that he calls out "Frankie" instead of "Ms. Francis."
