*** The Beast of Gevaudan was said to be not so much stealthy as just plain fucking unstoppable. She attacked in broad daylight, fought hand to hand (or rather paw to hand) with armed farmers, flaunted royal huntsmen, and was even said to shrug off bullets like nothing.

** In one proposed ending for the first film which was never used, it would have been revealed that the Xenomorphs can mimic human voices....to communicate over a radio transmission and lure more humans to find the ''Nostradamus.'' Yes, they were almost sentient.

* ''Film/DeepBlueSea'': One of the first things the super-intelligent mako sharks do that proves their intelligence is when they take out all the cameras in their pen so they can't be tracked, despite there being no reason why they would even understand a technology like that or ability to communicate it to each other.

The creature will know not to leave tracks, claw tree bark, or dump a load where it might be found, save by a master tracker who's escorting the heroes. Likewise, this trope ensures that the creature will consistently find unarmed victims (usually [[AssholeVictim confirmed jerkasses]] or [[FanService lone sexy females]]) to prey upon, even as the armed hunters, police, and/or soldiers scouring the woods for the mysterious threat [[FailedASpotCheck walk right by without noticing]]. In extreme cases, the creature might [[MissedHimByThatMuch slip right by dozens of potential witnesses by sheer luck]]. Often used to maintain a MonsterDelay, both in and out of Verse.

** Leopards in general own this trope. They're listed among the Big Five Game for African hunting (along with the obvious lion, elephant, rhino, and the vicious Cape Buffalo) just for being that hard to [[pun spot]]. Leopard-hunters often don't see their target until they're a few ''feet'' away, and no other hunter type has as high a rate of stress-related breakdown.
