YMMV: Man's Best Friend
- Jerkass Woobie: Max. His mere status as nothing more than a mutant abomination "perfect guard dog" is pitiful enough by itself, but the shit he goes through the movie defenitely makes the audience want to hug him. Whilst scared shitless.
- Nightmare Fuel: Although the basic premise is quite ridiculous (even if you have cynophobia, or have had a bad experience with rottweillers, the fact that Max is a genetic hybrid with chameleon abilities and acidic piss should be enough to make you lose your fear), Max does seem genuinely terrifying at some points, most notable when he swallows a live cat as his jaws unhinge like a snake's.
