* The denizens of Bright World in ''Webcomic/TheHazardsOfLove'' don't seem to be evil per-se, but it doesn't change the fact that they don't see humans as people and have no issues with enslaving or eating them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' Nergaoul is an embodiment of mindless slaughter that makes war addictive, causing people to continue the battle as their city burns down around them. In ''Literature/{{Oathbringer}}'' when it's rejected by one of its favorite people to influence [[spoiler: Dalinar]] rather than being angry it's confused and sad, like a big friendly dog whose owner doesn't want to play any more. It just doesn't understand people have interests beyond butchering each other, which is why it often influences both sides of a battle.

* Tuska from ''VideoGame/{{Unescape}}'' is a boar-like goddess called the World Devourer, who destroys every plane she comes across (including Guthix's native plane). However, she's not a sapient being- she's a regular wild animal who managed to gain godhood, and as such she destroys based only on instinct.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries'' has a monster, that eats magic and almost devours Genie and Carpet. But he's just like any animal, who has to eat to survive.
** There was also a sand shark with the treasure of a thousand sultan's vaults stuck to its underbelly. It was a shark, but didn't go out of its way to hunt down humans. It just happened to come across humans every now and then and thought "Oh hey, food!"
*** Later on, said shark was killed and eaten by a group of small humanoid creatures. While fearsome hunters, it turned out that they weren't evil themselves, just the slaves for a powerful evil wizard. Once the wizard was defeated, and a new leader stepped forward, they became a lot nicer.

* The second ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode has Twilight and friends come face to face with a Manticore. They attack the beast, which is acting in a threatening manner, before [[FriendToAllLivingThings Fluttershy]] yells for them to stop. She then cuddles up to it and finds a thorn in its paw, which she removes. Everypony else is amazed by this.
** Fluttershy is a master at dealing with this trope. When a dragon's hundred-year nap threatens to cover Equestria in smoke, she gets it to leave simply by firmly telling it about what will happen to the ponies (after [[BewareTheNiceOnes making it burst into tears]]). When Cerberus starts rampaging through Ponyville, Fluttershy calms him with ''belly rubs'' and says he's just a big dog that got out of his yard. And she beats a [[TakenForGranite cockatrice]] in a staring contest by angrily demanding [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas what would its mother think]].
** The ursa [[spoiler:minor]] that Snips and Snails lure into town is this as well. [[spoiler:Turns out it's just a baby that's ticked that it was pestered in it's sleep, and all it needs is some warm milk to calm it right back down.]]

** [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Maybe]] the changelings, depending on whether they [[EmotionEater feed on love]] as a food source or as simply something to make themselves more powerful. If the former, then they'd view the ponies (who have love out the wazoo) as an all-you-can-eat buffet.
** In Generation 1, the Smooze was a purple slime creature that washed over Dream Valley and nearly induced a SugarApocalypse until stopped. In ''Friendship is Magic'', it's an amicable green slime creature that [[spoiler:attends the Grand Galloping Gala as Discord's plus-one]]. The trouble it causes during the event is not so much malicious as a result of an irresistible urge to eat shiny objects and annoyance with its treatment by the one who brought him there.
* [[spoiler: The Hand Cluster]] from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' isn't actually violent, despite its [[BodyOfBodies terrifying appearance]]. When it grabs Garnet, it does so less out of aggressiveness and more because [[spoiler: the fallen Crystal Gems it's made of seem to recognize her.]]
** [[spoiler:The actual case is revealed later, with the ''actual'' Cluster: it and its prototypes, the human-sized Gem fusion-mutants, are made of forcibly-combined shards of shattered Gems. Their only instinct at this point is to attempt to seek out the rest of their matching shards and properly regenerate.]]

* The Typhon in ''VideoGame/Prey2017'' are intelligent (or at least capable of complex problem-solving) and trying to kill everyone on ''Talos 1'', but as Alex notes at one point, they can't be called 'evil' because they [[BizarreAlienBiology lack mirror neurons]], and as such are biologically incapable of seeing humans as anything but food. [[spoiler: And depending on how you play the game, an experiment in giving a Typhon mirror neurons could result in said Typhon becoming incredibly protective of human life and going out of its way to save others.]]

* The titular monster in Julian May's story ''Dune Roller''. Long ago, it crashed to Earth, with many small parts of itself (its "children") being widely scattered. It doesn't go out of its way to harm other creatures, but if you get in its way when it tries to reabsorb its children, it ''will'' go MamaBear on you.

* Werewolves in the film ''Film/{{Uncaged}}'' are aggressive and will attack and kill anyone they encounter, regardless of previous relationships, but Brandon believes that a werewolf can't be blamed for its actions because "it's just a monster", that is, just following its nature and thus not intelligent enough to be deliberately malicious.
