* {{Creator/Steve Alten}}'s ''Literature/{{Meg}}'' series includes the book ''Vostok'', which has a Purussaurus, a prehistoric species of caiman, on the cover. [[spoiler: Several live within the titular lake itself, and since the Loch Ness Monster had died in the previous book, one of their eggs gets taken back to replace it. Plessie, as it's named, quickly becomes a threat to the nearby human population; fortunately, this is ultimately undone via time travel.]]

* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' has two species that appear to be based on crocodilians: Ludroth, and Lagiacrus. The female Ludroths are about the size of real life crocodiles, and aren't too dangerous. The male Royal Ludroth on the other hand, is about the size of a truck, and hits like one. Lagiacrus is a massive sea monster that can sink ships. One serves as the reason for you coming to Moga Village in Monster Hunter 3U, because the village needs someone to kill it before the village's fishing industry is ruined.

Everyone knows that [[ThreateningShark sharks are bad news]]. They make the sea a scary, dangerous place. However, they live (mostly) in the sea, so that means rivers and lakes are safe. Right?

* Ada Ash did smile at crocodiles, and in fact thought animals such as these were suitable pets to be held in her arms and stroked(which kind of got over the fact she was weird and dangerous).

* 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.

Crocodiles in fiction (as well as alligators, [[SeldomSeenSpecies caimans, and gharials]]) tend to be huge, green monsters always looking for the next meal, lurking in rivers, swamps and sometimes [[RuleOfCool in castles' moats]] or [[SewerGator sewers]]. They have the most powerful bite force of any modern animal, and armored scales which make them hard to hurt. They also appear to be perpetually grinning, so they evoke the SlasherSmile. Furthermore, they're {{reptiles|AreAbhorrent}}, which tends to make them even more despicable if possible.

possible. And there is, of course, the ever iconic Death Roll.



In reality, crocodiles aren't as voracious as fiction portrays them to be; at the longest, they've been known to go up to a year without actually eating anything, and generally spend their time basking in the sun most of the year or burying themselves in dirt and mud during winter. And when they do eat, sometimes, [[http://www.livescience.com/39198-crocodiles-alligators-eat-fruit.html they just eat fruit]] They're also known to be as, if not more intelligent, than a domestic dog; some crocodiles have been observed using twigs and sticks as bait to lure nesting birds close to the water. In the water, of course, crocodiles are effortlessly graceful and fast swimmers, able to swim three times as fast as humans and jump completely out of the water to catch prey flying above.

above. The Death Roll, while terrifying and painful, serves a more practical purpose; crocodiles actually can't chew their food, so twisting and ripping off small chunks with an easy Death Roll lets them break off bite-sized pieces.
