* Many schools, especially in the U.S. tend to have tigers for mascots. Two Southeastern Conference schools, Auburn University and LSU (Louisiana State University), are probably the best-known examples.

* The Free State Rugby Union, representing the South African province of the same name, calls both of its primary teams—the Super Rugby side for which it provides most of the players, and the senior provincial side that competes in the domestic Currie Cup—the Cheetahs.



* In medieval Persia and India, tame cheetahs were status symbols, the equivalents of fast sports cars today. Kings, emperors, princes and high-ranking officials would keep cheetahs to hunt gazelles and deer. The Persians even taught cheetahs to [[RuleOfCool ride on horseback behind their trainers]] until they got close enough to their prey. At one point Mughal princes would keep hundreds or even thousands of hunting cheetahs and the fastest cheetah of all would be treated like royalty herself and carried to the hunting grounds upon an elephant with musicians and trumpeteers announcing her arrival, while the less successful cheetahs would be kept hungry in order to make them more competitive. Unfortunately, since it's nearly impossible to breed cheetahs in captivity, this cheetah-hoarding resulted in making the cheetah extinct in India and nearly destroyed Iran's population entirely.

* The German Army has gotten in on the trope via ThemeNaming of their armored vehicles: [[FragileSpeedster Pumas]] and [[LightningBruiser Panthers]] and [[TankGoodness Tigers]], oh my. [[WeAreNotTheWehrmacht Leopard II tanks]] are the most modern in the series. (The whole "big cat" thing might have something to with the fact that the German word for armor in general is ''panzer''...) There was also a Lynx light recon tank in Hitler's menagerie. This trope is somewhat subverted in that - seemingly having run out of cat names - the ''very'' largest tank fielded by the Germans, at way over 100 tons, was called the '''''Maus'''''.

* One episode of PetShopOfHorrors featured a jaguar, in an episode about an underground South American terror cell seeking to overthrow the current regime and restore the glory of their ancient civilization. Complete with the ancient religion, which is where the jaguar came in: she was attached to the family of the cell's charismatic leader. At one point she fell out of a helicopter, and D jumped after her; [[NotTheFallThatKillsYou they were rescued mid-air by a condor...]] yeah.
