* through most of ''WesternAnimation/TheCroods'', the title family are stalked by a ''massive'' sabertooth tiger [[MixAndMatchCritters with the colors of a blue and gold macaw]], dubbed "Chunky the Death Cat" by Gran. He stays on their trail through two jungles, a convoluted cave system, a field of jagged rocks, a series of tar pits and a large body of water before [[spoiler:getting trapped in a cave with Grug. With the world around them falling apart and only an improvised torch for light, he winds up pulling a HeelFaceTurn and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming huddling close to Grug for comfort]]]].

* Australian Funnelweb Spiders are VERY territorial and VERY aggressive. That's not the scary part (well, not the ''scariest'' part). The scary part is that if you mess with one and get away from it, if you come back the next day, ''it will remember you'' and come after you. This spider is [[ItCanThink smart]]/[[BerserkButton mean]] enough to ''[[ItsPersonal hold a grudge]]!''

* A rather terrifying example, the Wiki/SCPFoundation features [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-096 SCP-096]], a normally harmless creature [[DontLookAtMe until you see its face]]. It then [[BerserkButton flies into a rage]] and [[TheJuggernaut will stop at nothing to kill you]]. Military-grade armaments have little to no effect during its pursuit of a target. The effect also works on pictures, and its face could be as small as ''four pixels'' and it would still make all attempts to brutally [DATA EXPUNGED]. And once you see its face it ''knows'' where you are, so looking at its picture while hundreds of miles away won't help you.
** Naturally, the Foundation tried to kill 682 with it. It ended with both of them severely injured and leaving SCP-096 [[HorrifyingTheHorror so afraid of 682]] that it hides its ''own'' face in fear.

* The Monsters of ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' are this in spades. Massive extraterrestrial predators at least as smart as humans, they have an almost pathological drive to hunt and kill people. Humans too well equipped to kill? They'll hide in the wilderness, feed on other animals, grow, and repeat until that's no longer true.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustave_(crocodile) Gustave]]. What's scarier than an enormous Nile crocodile? An enormous Nile crocodile that not only has a taste for eating humans, but enjoys torturing them too. This bastard is reckoned to be nearly 70 years old, and, thanks to hundreds of human corpses dumped in the Rizizi river during Burundi's civil war, he has a taste for ''Homo sapiens''. He is believed to have killed nearly 300 people, and according to locals, doesn't eat them all - he kills because he enjoys it. Also, [[NightmareFuel this horrific abomination is still out there.]] A National Geographic expedition tried to capture him using a steel cage and a live goat. After the camera went out one stormy night, they found the cage the next morning, the goat gone, smashed to pieces at the bottom of a lakebed. So what makes him "super-persistent?" Well, apart form his enormous size, his other distinguishing features are machine gun scars, a grenade wound, and ''having an enormous bullet hole in the middle of his face.'' [[MadeOfIron And he's still going]]...

* Coda the Pelican from ''VideoGame/TadpoleTreble'' is described as this in regards to Baton the Tadpole. The Bestiary even specifically compares him to Wile E Coyote. It's downplayed, in that Coda only really goes after Baton whenever she's in his territory. [[EverythingTryingToKillYou He probably had to get in line with all the other predators after he missed his first chance.]]

* ''Film/SharkAttack'': The shark are intentionally (and as the hero-who's a marine biologist-notes, rather uncharacteristically) going after humans. This is initially thought to be because overfishing is driving them to look for prey at the shorelines, but it's later revealed to be because a guy with a MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate was spiking them with hormones.

His ultimate opponent ends up being another animal, who has internal monologue about this behavior being frightening and unusual.
