'''Basic Trope''': Animal Rights group does not care how many humans they hurt/insult so long as the animals are OK.
* '''Straight''': Animal Rights Group [[FunWithAcronyms BABY (Because Animals are Better than You)]] threaten to blow up animal vivisection laboratories, protest at zoos, circuses and fast food restaurants and generally seem to care more about animals than people.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** BABY plans to kill off all humans -- including ''themselves'' -- so animals can live in harmony.
** [[TranshumanTreachery BABY members actually transform themselves into animals/werewolves/forest elves/whatever because they hate anything related to the meat-eating, animal-torturing humans so much.]]
** BABY members commit cannibalism, claiming they are just "paying the meat eaters back in turn".
* '''Downplayed''':
** BABY has [[VocalMinority some extremist members]], but most are sane.
** While the members of BABY never resort to violence, they do use {{blackmail}}, harassment, and other underhanded tactics.
** The activists don't do anything illegal, but they do have one hell of an insane and ridiculous publicity campaign.
* '''Justified''':
** Unfortunately TruthInTelevision; some Animal Rights Activists really are this extreme.
** BABY aren't just targeting random animals to protest. They are targeting certain animals that happen to be held. Because of the nature of the animals, BABY are willing come off as extremists to hide the nature of what they are doing from those who would use the animals in a way that would cause great suffering.
* '''Inverted''': CruellaToAnimals.
* '''Subverted''': Our Hero runs into some animal rights activists, at first he expects them to be nut jobs, but they actually turn out to be pretty nice people.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** But when the hero starts eating a salami sandwich, ''then'' [[FelonyMisdemeanor they go ballistic]].
** They were just ''pretending'' to be nice.
* '''Parodied''': The agents of BABY seem to be [[BestialityIsDepraved a little too fond]] of animals. The founder of the group was seen flirting with a polar bear, and one woman member says she wants to marry her pet turtle.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Some animal rights activists are quite nice and friendly and all, but some... not so much.
* '''Averted''':
** There are animal right activists, but none of them go to extreme lengths.
** Or, there are no animal rights activists at all, not even mentioned. Humanity prevails!
* '''Enforced''':
** The director [[AuthorPhobia does not like]] the ''extreme'' animal rights activists [[AcceptableLifestyleTargets and thinks they are crazy]].
** The writers are trying to send the message that it's okay to love animals, just don't be like these nutcases about it.
* '''Lampshaded''': "If you love animals so much why don't you marry one?!"
* '''Invoked''': Adam [[StartMyOwn decides to found an animal rights group]] that he thinks will be more effective than existing ones.
* '''Exploited''': The BigBad knows the reputation BABY has and either coerces the group or has agents imbedded within to commit crimes for his benefit, causing BABY [[TheScapegoat to take the blame as a distraction for the heroes]].
* '''Defied''': The activists try their best not to be extreme on protecting animals, and try to talk nicely to people who thinks otherwise.
* '''Discussed''': "Are there any sane animal rights advocates, or they're all raving loony madmen secretly wishing to KillAllHumans?"
* '''Conversed''': "Oh, please. Organizations like that don't exist in RealLife ... or do they?"
* '''Deconstructed''':
** The attacks against fellow man do not go unnoticed by the media, and the organization is caught and shut down.
** Their attacks against fellow man result in a ''huge'' [[NiceJobBreakingItHero backlash by the public]]: [[RealMenEatMeat burger sales are through the roof]], [[PrettyInMink fur is coming back into style]], [[RealMenCanHunt hunting resurges in popularity]]...
** Their attacks lead to someone's death and subsequent legal problems.
* '''Reconstructed''': Another group takes their place, showing that [[YouCannotKillAnIdea there]] ''[[YouCannotKillAnIdea will]]'' [[WeAreEverywhere still be people]] [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil to carry out harm against humanity in favor of animals]].
* '''Played For Laughs''':
** The members of BABY are an animal-obsessed cult, who worship a cow and threaten to bomb all {{Burger Fool}}s.
** [[NaiveAnimalLover Their activists]] storm an Animal Control building to save some dogs from being put down... to which the dogs respond by [[TheFarmerAndTheViper biting all the members of BABY and giving them all rabies]].
* '''Played For Drama''':
** Animal rights activists storm a laboratory, liberating all the animals within. One member comes to a cage with some sickly monkeys inside. A scientist warns the activist that those monkeys contain a [[SyntheticPlague genetically engineered virus]] [[DepopulationBomb that could doom the human race to extinction]], to which the activist [[MisanthropeSupreme merely smirks]] [[OmnicidalManiac and says "Perfect!"]]
** A scientist has their lab and life's work destroyed by radicals, and they soon become so enraged that [[ItsPersonal they dedicate themselves to revenge]].
