* Inverted with ''Disney/TheLionKing''. The BigBad is a lion, but his species is generally presented as good. [[TheHyena Hyenas]], meanwhile, are [[DesignatedVillain ostensibly bad guys]], but it's because they're being starved to death. Individual hyenas come across as LaughablyEvil.

* ''Lost World RPG'' retelling of ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark'' set in the [[Fanfic/TheBridge Amalgam'verse]]: The ''Suchomimus'' is a docile fish eater who remembers her time around human keepers and comes to the expedition team's aid twice after they help her out of a snare trap. By comparison the ''Carnotaurus'' sees the humans as an ideal food source that's too slow to run away and just big enough to be worth hunting, one attacking the team until the ''Suchomimus'' fought it off. Later on the more natural, feathered ''Deinonychus'' inevitably helps save the team from the scaly, psychopathic RaptorAttack modified ''Deinonychus''.

Later on the more natural, realistic, feathered ''Deinonychus'' inevitably helps save the team from the scaly, psychopathic RaptorAttack modified ''Deinonychus''.''Deinonychus'' more akin to the movie raptors. Humorously the HerbivoresAreFriendly trope is blasted to smithereens. From the Sauropods to the ''Stegosaurus'' herd, pretty much all of the large herbivores are extremely aggressive.
* In ''Fanfic/EquestriaGirlsDinosapien'', Eno is a bird-like, evolved Troodontid who is completely docile around humans despite being the size of a bear; being implied to have known the main character's missing father. A pair of [[RaptorAttack Dromaeosaurid]] [[FeatheredFiend descendants]] are his species' natural enemy and have zero problem stalking and hunting humans.


* The Wesens in ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' also tend to be like this; Mauzherz (mice), Genio innocuo (tortoise), Seelengut (sheeps) and Fuchsbau (foxes) been generally good or peaceful while Klaustreich (cats), Königschlange (snakes) and Gelumcaedus (alligators) to name a few are evil (or at least generally violent). Nevertheless other like Blutbad (wolves) and Bauerschwein (pigs) have both good and bad individuals in a more balanced level.

** G1 also had several instances of Autobot teams vs Decepticon teams where the Autobots turned into vehicles while their Decepticon counterparts turned into animals. The most prominent examples was probably the Headmasters: Autobots included Highbrow, a futuristic helicopter, Hosehead, a fire truck, and Chromedome, a car, while Decepticons included Weirdwolf, [[CaptainObvious a wolf]], Mindwipe, a giant vampire bat, and Skullcruncher, a crocodile.

* ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', formerly ''Dinosaur Planet,'' has the antagonistic Sharpclaws, a race of anthropomorphic theropods, led by General Scales, an anthropomorphic allosaur despot. Other hazards include non-anthropomorphic tyrannosaurs and Galdon, a bizarre insectoid dinosaurian ''thing'' that also appeared to be some kind of carnosaur hybrid. [[spoiler:The only really evil mammal is [[HijackedByGanon Andross]].]] Fox's allies are pterosaurs, ceratopsians, and other herbivorous dinosaurs. [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers And the odd mammoth or two.]]

* ''ComicBook/{{Maus}}'': The cats (Nazis) [[CatsAreMean are bad]], and the mice (Jews) [[NiceMice are good]]. There are good and bad Polish pigs. Americans are portrayed as dogs. Other animals appear with varying attributes (British appear as fish, Swedes as reindeer, and [[VisualPun a gypsy as a moth]]). Subverted somewhat, however, in that ''all'' Germans are cats, Nazi or otherwise. The nice German lady married to a Jewish mouse is still a striped cat (and their children are [[MixAndMatchChildren mice with tiger-like stripes]]).

Keep in mind that not every animal character in a work is necessarily going to align with the alignment most associated with their species. [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch Aversions do occur]] and is completely up to the discretion of the individual creator. The following list is not meant to pass judgement on the value of the species listed, but simply to associate the species with the alignment most often associated them when species coding is involved.

This trope is invoked whenever a work attempts to inform the audience who the good guys and who the bad guys are based solely on their species.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' takes traditional animal stereotypes and plays around with them in a way that subverts them as often as plays them straight. Wolves are threatening but have a crippling obsession with howling, sloths are slow but rather clever, and so on. This turns out to be the whole point of the movie, with [[FantasticRacism attitudes among sentient animals being a stand-in for social bias and prejudice]]. For the most part, the various characters are flawed but fundamentally good (or, at least, morally grey) and the main story-line involves a situation where predator animals are reverting to their primitive, savage ways. Some exceptions are [[spoiler:a particularly trashy weasel (Disney really seems to want to hold on to this stereotype), a vicious, crime lord shrew and a gang of criminal sheep (from the BigBad on down being [[AmbitionIsEvil motivated by lust for power]] rather than species).]]

* Non-animal example: In the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' continuities, certain vehicle types are almost always affiliated with a certain faction; Autobots are more likely to turn into emergency response vehicles like police cars and ambulances, while Decepticons are more likely to turn into purpose-built war machines like bombers and tanks.

** ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' brings it back around to this; the Maximals all turn into either mammals or birds (with the exceptions of Dinobot and [[spoiler:Blackarachnia]], who both started out as Predacons before doing a HeelFaceTurn), while the Predacons all turn into either reptiles or arthropods. There are a few fish on both sides, though, and at least one mammalian Predacon in Ravage. The theme was especially notable in regards to the Fuzors, who had MixAndMatchCritters for beast modes -- Maximal Fuzors included Torca (orca/elephant), Bantor (tiger/mandrill), and Silverbolt (wolf/eagle), whereas Predacon Fuzors were guys like Terrorgator (crocodile/turtle), Skyshadow (dragonfly/lizard) and Quickstrike (cobra/scorpion).

A couple of birds of prey who would normally eat mice and other small rodents had their turn on the side of good, too. But apart from the few notable exceptions, even Deyna in ''Taggerung'', who was raised to be evil's champion, wound up being good because he was an otter.
