* A common theme explored extensively in ''Franchise/TheWitcher'', both the novels and the video games based on them. One reason the witchers are running out of work is that humans are simply learning to live with monstrous creatures, such as a mayor in one story who refuses Geralt's offer to kill a troll because it keeps the bridge in good repair without asking for anything in return, even if it does occasionally break someone's leg for refusing to pay the crossing toll. Some larger beasts like wyverns, griffons and drakes are just protecting their territory or their young. Even succubi are largely friendly and mean no one any harm, only killing in self-defense or by accident. Humans, meanwhile, are as capable of evil as any supernatural creature.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Vampirella}}'', the early Pantha. Her one and only response to being threatened, annoyed or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking being given a parking ticket]] was instinctively turning into a panther and mauling the nuisance (and mostly, grieving afterwards about what she had done). Later, she got a retcon and an amulet to control herself.

* ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'':
** The leopard in the "Dawn of Man" segment. It's not even a monster, really, just a mundane predator, but as the protagonists are apes, it's the segment's "villain".
** HAL 9000 is another example. While there's some ambiguity as to its sentience, what is clear is that his psychotic behaviour wasn't his fault; his programmers accidentally created a LogicBomb in his programming, and murdering the crew was the only way to resolve the paradox.



* All of the antagonists in ''Series/WalkingWithDinosaurs'' are just predators trying to survive.

* The Purple People Eater, in the song by Sheb Wooley. The monster does [[PickyPeopleEater eat purple people]], but it actually comes to Earth because it wants to be in a rock 'n' roll band.
