Added DiffLines:

* Subverted by minor recurring alligator "Old Sam" in ''Literature/ProfessorZamorra'', who to the usual surprise of strangers is generally peaceful around humans because some of the locals feed him on occasion, presumably keeps his share of potentially more troublesome gators out of his territory and thus away from people, and even plays the role of [[EvilDetectingDog evil-detecting reptile]] a time or two. Unlike some other characters in the series he's otherwise still just a plain old animal living mostly in the wild.

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 less aggressive towards humans than large crocodiles, though they are still prone to this trope.

* In Disney's ''VideoGame/WheresMyWater'', this is subverted by the friendly nice guy Swampy, and played straight by the grumpy {{Jerkass}} Cranky.

Added DiffLines:

* A lesser-known enemy of ''WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker'' was the none-too-bright swamp bumpkin Gabby Gator (or A. L. Gator in earlier shorts).
* Subverted by Creator/HannaBarbera's WesternAnimation/WallyGator (no relation to the aforementioned ''Woody Woodpecker'' character), who was a pretty decent fellow just seeking to explore life outside the walls of the zoo; not that Mr. Twiddle would ever let it happen.

* When ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' use an AnimalMotif, 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'', 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.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', has crocs, albeit of a more exotic sort, being furry, terrestrial, and having "jaws" that are more like a pair of pincers that fold into a shape of a crocodilian head while not in use; their real head and mouth being concealed behind them.

* This is averted with Pua from ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'', who is a wise and intelligent crocodile and the former leader of the bask of crocodiles. But this is played straight with his successor Makuu, whose ambition to spread out his territory causes problems in the Pridelands.

Added DiffLines:

* Some versions of the legend of Myth/SaintGeorge slaying a dragon have the dragon be a crocodile instead. Indeed, the dragon in the tale is said to live in a lake, and if there is a real event behind the story, slaying a crocodile seems like a likely candidate.
