Note that animal names can go either way depending on the setting; they can imply evil, or can simply be used to imply that a character is fierce and dangerous, and as such, can be used for good characters or even heroes. Some animals are tipped more one way than others, of course; lions and wolves can imply nobility, but snakes and scorpions usually don't. See AnimalStereotypes for possible reasons for why certain animals have sufficient evil/scary cultural connotations to qualify for this trope.

* The example that {{Godwin|sLaw}} demanded: UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler seemed to have had an affinity of some sort for wolves. His first name derives from ''Athalwolf'', Old High German for "noble wolf", and for this reason "Wolf" [[InvokedTrope became his childhood nickname]]. He later used it as a pseudonym for himself in the 1920s, ostensibly for security reasons. Three of his military headquarters were named ''Wolfsschanze'' ("wolf's lair"), ''Wolfsschlucht'' ("wolf's chasm"), and ''Werwolf'' ("werewolf").
