In addition to weasels, stoats and polecats get a fair amount of this. Ferrets are portrayed similarly as clever, hyperactive, slightly crazy tricksters, but are often cute and harmless rather than malicious, probably because people are increasingly likely to be familiar with them as pets. Martens and fishers are somewhat less likely to be lumped in with weasels, and otters are [[PlayfulOtter something completely different]], as are badgers and wolverines. Another mustelid, the skunk, has [[SmellySkunk its own trope]]; a skunk is definitely something to avoid, but is not necessarily as wicked as a weasel. Mongooses are saved, ironically not by the fact that they're far closer to cats and hyenas than to weasels, but by being famous for fighting [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent snakes]].

* Don't forget the weasel from a few [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Foghorn Leghorn]] cartoons, who occasionally visits Foghorn's farm to steal chickens. Ironically, Foghorn generally sides with the weasel to spite the farm's dog, although the weasel doesn't appreciate his [[StopHelpingMe "help"]]. The weasel and the dog [[EnemyMine team up]] against him a few times.

* Two weasels, again from "[[TheWindInTheWillows Wind in the Willows]]" are shown digging Ebenezer Scrooge's grave in the 1983 special ''Disney/MickeysChristmasCarol''. One of them speaks in a Cockney dialect (befitting the story's London setting), while the other has what sounds like a PeterLorre impression.

* Skulk and Sammy from ''TheLittleFlyingBears'' are relatively mild examples. While they are antagonists and cause trouble, Sammy is a MinionWithAnFInEvil and Skulk has his share of PetTheDog moments.
* Snout and Ollie from ''ToadPatrol'', who torment toadlets for fun. Neither of them are very smart, but Snout is the brighter of the two.

* This is heavily invoked in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. Although normal people (for a given definition of "normal"), individuals belonging to [[TangledFamilyTree House]] [[{{Jerkass}} Frey]] regularly do get compared with weasels. And, this is not only because of their chinless, [[LeanAndMean regularly gaunt looks]], but thanks to their [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder many]] [[IncestIsRelative unsavoury]] [[ObstructiveBureaucrat habits]], as well. Even the chunkier ones don't escape either the narrative or other characters describing them as weasels. The weaseliest weasel who ever [[WeaselWords weaseled]], however, remains [[{{Troll}} Lord Walder]]. Although his kin [[JerkJock Black Walter]], [[BastardBastard Bastard Walder]] and [[BitchInSheepsClothing Lame Lothar]] aren't all that far behind him -- he just has [[EvilOldFolks more decades of being despicable]] under his belt. Some (lucky) few in the family do escape the whole weasel motif, but you can count them on one hand. Which isn't a [[TangledFamilyTree large proportion of the family]].
