* In the ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'', the [[KrakenAndLeviathan Leviathan]] is an incomprehensibly vast monster in the furthest depths of TheUnderworld, ruling an infinite black ocean that dissolves the memories and [[LossOfIdentity identities]] of people who enter. While the other Underworld rulers delight in devising horrible punishments on those who violate their laws, the Leviathan simply, dispassionately corrects rule-breakers and keeps them from doing it again.

* The Incredibly Stupid Swamp Monster from ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' is a prime example of DumbIsGood, being a GentleGiant.

* 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 implied to be trying to help 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]].]]

** Telethia the Endbringer in ''Chronicles X'' is a stand-out case: it flat-out will ''not'' attack unless attacked first. It saves the protagonists in their first encounter with it (whether intentionally or not is unclear). In a later sidequest, the player is asked to retrieve one of its scales, necessitating a fight with it. The player is extremely unlikely to be anywhere near strong enough to truly challenge Telethia at that point, but if they do so anyway, Telethia basically drops a scale after a few attacks and goes away without further conflict, suggesting it knew why the player attacked it and wasn't offended/threatened by the attack.

Compare NotEvilJustMisunderstood. See also MonsterIsAMommy, a SubTrope of when the monster in question is fully justified or even doing objective good in its monstrous actions, WhyIsntItAttacking when the non-malicious behavior is noticed, and BenevolentMonster, which is a monster that is actively kindhearted instead of just neutral.

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.

* Interestingly, the Tailed Beasts from ''Manga/Naruto'' can be tamed as Jinchuriki. Each has a different personality and can unlock tremendous abilities for the individual. However it seems the more tails the beast has, the increased difficulty it is to fully befriend and tame. The Nine Tails Kurama only just recently became agreeable towards Naruto, and that took several YEARS to accomplish. The lore states that the Ten Tails itself is the absolute worst, to the point that the other nine fear just talking about it.

* The Tyranids of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' have no malice to them whatsoever. They reduce entire biospheres to bare rock because they need to eat, and are essentially nothing more than a rapidly-evolving swarm of intergalactic locusts. But because they divide the entire universe into "us", "food", and "inorganic matter", there is no way to deal with them other than to kill them or get out of the way...and planets are rather restricted in their movement.
