* The house pet of ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' is an adult lion. For them is like a kitty, of course, and he behaves as such. But for the unfortunate visitants is very often the reason why they end running scared out of the property BennyHill style.

*George [[VoluntaryShapeshifting does a lion]] at one point in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' to knock Aurion over while she's wielding the mind-controlling sword Brox's Kiss. He had intended to knock the sword from her grasp, but she kept hold of it. Being an ActualPacifist and still fairly new at this shapeshifting stuff, he finds himself clueless as to what to do next, since he's obviously not going to chew her face off. At least his paws on her chest prevented her from screaming out an order to her minions.
**Having learned his lesson, the next time he needs to do something like this (in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''), he becomes a gorilla, though this also proves problematic since he can't talk in this form and he desperately needs to tell Paul something.

*A jaguar makes a brief appearance in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. It breaks a lot of teeth when it tries to bite NighInvulnerable Paul, which makes him feel terribly guilty. After it runs off, Spectrem does NOT endear himself to Paul or George when he talks about how he would have mounted the jaguar's pelt on his wall.

* In ''Kingdoms of Light'' by Creator/AlanDeanFoster, a spell transforms a bird, a terrier, a snake and three cats into humans to return color to the drab Kingdom of Gowlands after it was taken over by an evil warlock and his goblin hordes. During the FinalBattle all the animals transform into larger wild animal counterparts of their respective species. The bird turns into a firebird, the terrier into a large wolfdog, the snake into a reticulated python, and the three cats into a lion, a panther, and a leopard respectively.
** Also by Foster, you have Ahlitah from the ''Journeys of the Catechist'' series. He's a hybrid of lion and cheetah, and possesses his father's strength (the lion), and his mother's speed. He basically serves as TheSnarkKnight throughout the series, and TheBigGuy for the first book.
** [[RuleOfThree And also by Foster]], the world of ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}'' doesn't have many feline characters appear, but among those which do many cats are {{Mooks}} for the bad guys; one, the sadistic Sasheem, is the first mate for PirateParrot Corroboc; and the heroic, badass, DualWielding Amazonian tigress with a Southern drawl, Roseroar, becomes a great ally to the hero of the series.

* The ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' series and its YoungAdult spinoff ''Literature/StephanieHarrington'' feature the hexapuma, a six-legged felinoid that only vaguely resembles Earth "big cats", and can grow up to three meters long, massing several hundred kilograms when mature. To the other six-legged felinoids, the Treecats, they're known as "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Death Fangs]]", and even with high-powered human rifles (civilian, anyway) can take several shots to kill.
** Come to think of it, Treecats themselves deserve an honourable mention here; they're not much larger than an Earth housecat, but they can do a remarkably good impression of a self-propelled buzzsaw if threatened.
