* In ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', [[spoiler: both the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Beasts]] and [[EldritchAbomination Great Ones]] qualify as this. The Beasts are mere victims of a plague caused by Blood Ministration, while the Great Ones are just trying to guide humanity in their own ways, not meaning nor intending any harm, yet inevitably inflict insanity on the humans. Rom, as a BarrierMaiden of a dreamcatcher, is actually shrouding people from the sinister Mensis Ritual to protect them. Ebrietas chose to co-exist with the Healing Church and granted knowledge to them, which the church would misuse later. However, the greatest example is the [[AntiVillain Moon Presence]], he is actually helping the humans to stop the Great Ones, he [[StartXToStopX created a dream and empowered you to halt a nightmare]], yet in return, [[WhatTheHellHero you turned against him and killed him for good]].]]

* Many [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCPs]] qualify, but special mention goes to SCP-053, the girl who makes you try to kill her if you look at her.

* Many [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCPs]] qualify, but special mention goes to SCP-053, the a little girl who makes you try to kill whose powers cause anyone that attacks her if you look to instantly drop dead, while at her.the same time giving anyone in her vicinity an uncontrollable urge ''to'' attack her. [[PowerIncontinence She has no control over this]].

** On the whole, no other known creature can be consciously harmful and evil like humans, and therefore all other lifeforms that look for prey qualify for this trope.

* A lot of monsters in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' have their alignment listed as TrueNeutral, because they're basically oversized plants or animals which may or may not have supernatural powers. Since they're not sapient, they can't make moral judgments. The ultimate example of this may be the Tarrasque - a giant reptilian monster, nearly indestructible and as large as D&D size measurements get (Colossal), which rises from its slumber every few centuries to cause untold havoc as it eats everything in sight. As it digests you and your entire village AndYourLittleDogToo, you can take comfort in the fact that it bears no ill will towards you. If ''TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}}'' is taken into account, it's even suggested that ''ordinarily'' the Tarrasque would be as harmless as a being larger than many houses can be -- it just that it's either (essentially) poisoned or suffering from deprivation, as the air of its native world seems to be different to that of most others.

** The Gray Render stands out as being a two-ton armour-skinned nightmare of claws and teeth... that likes to "adopt" random people, protecting them from harm and bringing them food.

Added DiffLines:

For the purposes of StockMonsterSymbolism, a NonMaliciousMonster usually is used to further a "nature vs. civilization" theme, or more rarely a "disaster (man-made or otherwise)" theme.

* Possibly [[EldritchAbomination Lavos]] from ChronoTrigger as it is unclear whether it is sentient or not.

* The entire ''MonsterHunter'' series is full of them. Most will attack the hunters, but this is due to their instincts (correctly) perceiving the hunters as threats.

* The entire ''MonsterHunter'' series is full of them. Most will attack the hunters, but this is due to their instincts (correctly) perceiving the hunters as threats. This has been part of the series' design philosophy from the start; the developers never wanted to portray the monsters as evil, simply a part of the natural order humanity had to struggle against - in fact, on role of the Hunter's Guild is to prevent any species of monster from becoming endangered due to overhunting.
** The Gore Magala of the fourth entry of the series is the closest thing the games have had to an outright antagonistic monster, and even it falls under this trope. It's actually [[spoiler:an Elder Dragon]] living out its one-in-a-generation maturity cycle. It just happens to turn into a living rabies vector while it does.

* The original interpretation of the Kraken in Norse mythology served as this. They weren't vicious predators, but their sheer size made them a threat because they would cause whirlpools when they submerged.

Added DiffLines:

* The monsters in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' fit the bill.[[spoiler: Their goal is to destroy the Patterson Tech, which is an anathema to them.]] The massive body count they rack up is in response to the human counter attack.
