* 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 guiding humanity in their own ways, yet inevitably inflicted insanity to 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]].]]

* 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.

* Slimer from the first ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''. He's little more than a nuisance who ''wants'' to have a good time, but his antics interfere with the human world.

* [[spoiler: The 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.

* Most of the creatures you fight in ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' and its SpiritualSuccessor ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' are more or less just wild animals and aren't inherently evil. Elma even lampshades the trope, saying that they mostly leave the local fauna alone, only attacking the wildlife that actually poses a threat and/or attacks first.

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

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
