* Ursa (her name meaning 'she-bear') from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' is an aversion. Despite being the wife of the [[BigBad Fire Lord]], she is shown to be a kind and loving mother ...who admittedly killed Azulon, the then-[[BigBad Fire Lord]], for threatening the life of her son.
* ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'': Ursula. The name actually means "''little'' she-bear," but she turns it into a Name to Run Away From ''anyway''.

* Ursa (her name meaning 'she-bear') from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has Zuko's mother Ursa, whose name is an aversion. Despite being the wife of the [[BigBad Fire Lord]], she Latin for a female bear and is shown to be quite appropriate for a quintessential ''figurative'' MamaBear. She's a kind and loving mother ...who admittedly killed Azulon, the then-[[BigBad Fire Lord]], for threatening the life of mother, but hey, it takes a loving mother to ''aid an assassination'' in order to protect her son.
* ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'': The central villain in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' is the sea witch Ursula. The name actually means "''little'' she-bear," female bear", and the character is more like an octopus than a bear (being an {{unscaled mer|folk}}maid with tentacles instead of a tail), but she turns it into a Name to Run Away From ''anyway''.

* Krokodil is a makeshift opioid brewed from codeine in countries like UsefulNotes/{{Russia}} where heroin is harder to come by. The active ingredient (desomorphine) is several times more potent than actual heroin, but crude production methods (similar to those used to cook meth from pseudoephedrine) leave a ''lot'' of toxic byproducts in the brew, leading to [[BodyHorror infamously gruesome side effects]] like gangrene. Indeed, the nickname "Krokodil" may be a reference to the scaly skin that develops around injection sites.

* One of Franchise/{{Batman}}'s enemies is called Killer Croc due to his crocodilian appearance. DependingOnTheWriter, this either comes from a skin disease that makes him look scaly, or a mutation that gives him actual reptilian genes.

Most kinds of bear aren't well-known or catchy enough to get their own section, but watch out for anyone who goes by "Grizzly" or "Kodiak". However Russian bears (as a name, nickname, or title) definitely fit in this trope.
