* The second ''AceVentura'' has him surviving an attempt on his life plummeting off [[InevitableWaterfall a high waterfall]]. He breaks the surface, exulting "I'm ''alive!!!''", while a huge crocodile looms up behind him. Ace, animal lover that he is, treats the ensuing attack like a playful slap-fight.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' had Skullcruncher, a Decepticon Headmaster. While he never demonstrated it onscreen, his bio stated that he like to [[IAmAHumanitarian eat Autobots]], something made even more horrific due to the fact that Cybertronians don't even need to eat in the first place.

* Just when you thought crocodiles couldn't get any more terrifying, there's (though limited) evidence that they will sometimes hunt in groups in multiple species. There was an instance at the world renown Saint Augustine Alligator Farm [[note]]which despite the title is mostly a giant zoo with almost all crocodilian species[[/note]] where a trio of Cuban Crocodiles worked together to corner a zookeeper and cut off his escape, which thankfully failed after they were lured away with fresh chicken meat. Nile Crocodiles in the wild often team up to grab larger prey and drag it under the water, some holding the struggling target down as others go for the killing blows. One crocodile going after you is bad enough. Now imagine several working together to make you their meal.

Crocodiles in fiction (as well as alligators, [[SeldomSeenSpecies caiman]], and other close relations) tend to be huge, green monsters always looking for the next meal, lurking in rivers, swamps and sometimes [[RuleOfCool in castle's moats]] or [[SewerGator sewers]]. They have a powerful bite, and hard skin 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.

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' with Gummy, owned by [[CloudCuckoolander Pinkie Pie]]. He's actually an alligator, and he's too small to bite anyone (though he tries enthusiastically) as he doesn't have his teeth. [[FromBadToWorse Yet.]]
** However, there are at least three instances where this trope is played completely straight:
