Walruses, they are one of the most majestic sea animals in the animal kingdom. The reason for this is because walruses' vibrissae look a lot like big bushy mustaches you'd expect to see on experienced, middle-aged men. In nearly every form of media, walruses are sometimes depicted as a distinguished but somewhat foolish gentleman, mainly because of their silly yet physically formidable appearance. Sometimes, in media, you can even expect to see them partnered up with penguins.

Not to be confused with: The Walrus Was Paul


Examples

Film
  • The Little Mermaid II: Return To The Sea featured a walrus named Dash, who wanted very much to be a hero, along with his pal, Tip the penguin.
  • In Disney's Alice in Wonderland, not only does the Walrus help trick the oysters into getting eaten, he also tricks the Carpenter out of his "fair share" of them.

Literature
  • "The Walrus And The Carpenter" by Lewis Carroll.

Tabletop RPG
  • Dungeons & Dragons module EX 1 The Land Beyond The Magic Mirror, which was based on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland stories. The PCs can meet the Walrus (of the Walrus and the Carpenter fame). He's sneaky, pretending to be a helpful good guy while actually planning to trick the PCs and steal from them.
