** When these series use AnimalMotifs, which is often, they sometimes feature crocodilian mecha. These include Gao Ligator / Alligator Zord from ''Series/HyakujuuSentaiGaoranger'' / ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'', Engine Carrigator / Croc Carrier from ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger'' / ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'', Crocodile Headder from ''Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger'', Deinosgrander (based on a Deinosuchus, its physical body was destroyed millions of years ago, but its spirit survives into the present day, letting the team summon an extra weapon based on its power) from ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'', Alligator Ressha from ''Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger'' and Cube Crocodile from ''Series/DoubutsuSentaiZyuohger''. So far, crocodilians have been limited to MechaExpansionPack. No Ranger has ever had one as their signature animal.

The trope is sometimes subverted by making the croc a comedic glutton or a CoolPet. Alligators are more likely to be portrayed in a positive light than crocodiles are, possibly due to the fact alligators are comparatively less aggressive towards humans and also slightly less threatening looking (gators are [[EvilIsBigger smaller]] and have more rounded features and overbites, while many crocs are [[ThinChinOfSin very angular]] and all of them have [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily toothier]] [[SlasherSmile grins]])[[note]]which is ironic considering gators have more teeth than crocs[[/note]], though they are still prone to this trope.

* ''Series/{{Harrow}}'': In "Hic Sunt Dracones" ("Here be Dragons"), Harrow is called in after a human arm is found inside a dead crocodile. He is less than pleased when he has to go fossicking around inside a croc's nest in an attempt to find the rest of the body: especially as [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes he is afraid of lizards]].

* A reccurring character from ''WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey'' is a nerdy crocodile who keeps showing up after the Jungle Man episode. Him being a nerd is also a case of ShowingTheirWork, based on the fact crocodiles are highly intelligent.
