* ''Literature/TheCrocodileGod'' features Haik, the precolonial Tagalog sea-god with extensive indigenous crocodile tattoos on his arm and back. However, DarkIsNotEvil since Haik is very much a NiceGuy, and Filipino mythology held crocodiles to be [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Eastern-type dragons]] or even gods themselves. Haik has implied YinYangBomb symbolism due to his two most widely-used epithets: [[CharacterTitle The crocodile-god,]] and [[ShoutOut the Whale Rider.]][[note]]This is intentionally drawing from Maori mythology and the film ''Film/WhaleRider''; due to lack of real-life myths about Haik, the story views him as a folk-memory of Paikea.[[/note]] Moreover, Haik is [[GoodIsNotSoft definitely not SOFT]] since one of his other titles is [[SeaMonster "(he) who breaks the ships in his teeth,"]] which he does by turning into an Eastern dragon based on [[DinosaursAreDragons even BIGGER ancient crocodilians.]] In the early-colonial Philippines, he turned into a saltwater croc and ate [[BerserkButton the Spaniard who shot Haik's heavily-pregnant wife in front of him,]] and in one of his forgotten myths, he turned into a dragon and ate the OTHER GOD [[BerserkButton who molested his older sister,]] so he definitely has an MO of EatingTheEnemy.
