* If a Trandoshan appears at all in ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', expect him or her to be a bounty hunter, mercenary, assassin, or a greedy loner looking to get rich. Or in Garnac's case, a sadist who kidnaps people [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame and hunts them for sport]].

* Done in-universe in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', Bobby gets a pet snake. This is treated by his family as if he's started practicing Satanism or witchcraft. The snake doesn't actually do anything wrong, but that doesn't stop Hank from killing it when it escapes.

** The Ice Warriors were introduced as a villain race, although in their [[Recap/DoctorWhoS11E4TheMonsterOfPeladon final appearance in the Original Series,]] we learn that they aren't all bad. In the new series, they seem to be mainly a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race.]]

Reptiles Are Abhorrent is fairly common, but it's far from {{omnipresent|Tropes}}, so '''do not list aversions'''. Also, remember that for it to be a subversion, audience must be set up to expect it before it is shown not to be the case. There are enough non-abhorrent reptiles in fiction that it would be a waste of time and space to list them all. Also, this is a SuperTrope of SnakesAreSinister and NeverSmileAtACrocodile, so examples specific to snakes or crocodilians should go to their respective sub-trope and not here.

Aside from snakes, do not list aversions unless it is pointed out. There are enough non-abhorrent reptiles in fiction that it would be a waste of time and space to list them all.
