* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' backstory, the [[OurElvesAreDifferent Ayleids (Wild Elves)]] once ruled all of Cyrodiil and took the Nedes, human ancestors of most of the modern races of Men, as slaves. So [[KickTheDog vile was their torment of the slaves]] that, when the [[SlaveRevolt slaves revolted]], several rebel Ayleid lords sided with the slaves (although some sources imply it was less 'the other lords were just that bad' and more 'there was already a civil war between Aedra and Daedra-favouring Ayleid lords' -- everyone involved on the winning side, including the Ayleids on the rebellion's side, had an interest in playing up just how bad the Ayleid rule had been). As a result, they were allowed to keep their lands as vassals to the new empire the slaves would found. (At least for about a century or so until an extremist [[FantasticRacism anti-elven]] religious sect came to power within the empire and either killed or drove away the remaining Ayleids.)

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': Scamps are the [[TheGoomba weakest]] and [[FunSize smallest]] known form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]], and in almost every game where they've made an appearance, there is typically at least one non-hostile Scamp who can be conversed with. The [[LethalJokeCharacter Scamp merchant]] Creeper, who appears in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline Online]]'', is one prominent example.

* As in the example in the film section, in the animated series ''[[WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail Fievel's American Tails]]'' base on DonBluth's film, Tyger is a friendly cat that is one of Fievels (a mouse) best friends in a town full of mean cats, this becomes even polemic at some point as Fievel's parents do not fully approve the friendship.

* No-Name in ''ComicBook/PlanetHulk'' is member of the Brood, a race of evil bug aliens and [[{{Franchise/Aliens}} Xenomorph]] [[{{Expy}} expies]] that fight against the {{Franchise/XMen}} on regular basis. No-Name on the other hand is a RogueDrone that fights alongside the Hulk as a Warbound member. She proves to be an exceptional individual unlike the rest of her race (who are by large sadistic and evil) during ''ComicBook/WorldWarHulk'' when she shields civilians from the impacts of Hulk's blows against Sentry, stating that they only came to make the people responsible for their home's destruction would pay, not to destroy another world.
