* The Ultra Beasts of ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' are initially presented as bizarre lovecraftian creatures with powers and abilities that appear to defy whatever passes for logic when applied to regular Pokémon. It would be easy to think that they're invading and causing havoc on purpose. It turns out that they're they're actually trying to find a way to get back to their own dimension and are disoriented from being flung into one that's just as alien to them.

* The ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' villain Humpty Dumpty seems to be mentally retarded, but he has a knack for analyzing mechanical systems and figuring out how to subvert or disable them. After the deaths of his parents and constant verbal abuse from his grandmother, he started trying to fix machines he perceived as broken out of irritation, but since his knowledge only came from library books his repairs often resulted in horrible accidents. He is just trying to do what he believes is a good thing for everyone. Even when he eventually "took apart" his grandmother, he did so in a misguided attempt to find the root of her meanness and fix her.

** On the other hand the creature seems to have a calculating nature and superior intellect to an animal, so if it can pretend and trick humans perhaps it is not mindless and can understand what it odes.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', the girls discover that the slime monster was only tearing Townsville apart because it was looking for its lost cat.
** In "Super Zeroes", a monster begins destroying Townsville, and the girls start changing into their new hero identities. By the time they're done, night had fallen and the monster had suddenly lost interest in destroying the city. The next morning, the monster resumes his rampage, and the girls begin their journey to confront him. However, they all run into inconveniences that held up their arrival, and the monster eventually stops his path of destruction again at night (even checking his watch as time passes). Finally, when the girls actually confront him and prove ineffective against him, the monster explains that the reason he was destroying the city and drawing the girls out to fight him is because he was taking up a tradition back at his home island.

One step below AntiVillain: a creature that could be called monstrous, but can't actually be viewed as evil, since it lacks any actual malice or sentience.

* 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.

[[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.
