* Subverted in ''Literature/OneStormyNight''. Most of the antagonists are wolves however they're not mean because they're wolves, they're just mean wolves. Gabu and some background wolves aren't portrayed as malicious. Gabu is a sweet wolf who becomes best friends with a goat named Mei. Gabu tries to become a vegetarian and, even though Mei dislikes Gabu hunting, they both realize that is impossible.

This trope is practically never TruthInTelevision obviously enough. Very few predators have ever been observed to engage in apparently deliberate cruelty. Please do not list RealLife aversions - nature averts this by default, playing it straight is by far the more remarkable.

This can overlap with HumansAreTheRealMonsters, and maybe even HumansAreCthulhu (particularly in {{Xenofiction}}). Goes hand-in-hand with HerbivoresAreFriendly and ScavengersAreScum. May be one of the reasons why ReptilesAreAbhorrent, since most lizards (including ''all'' snakes) and all modern crocodilians are carnivores.

** WWB depicted some true predators as scavengers to make them less sympathetic, the worst case being the terror bird (which had no sense of smell and therefore relied almost entirely on hunting).
