Animal villains (excluding humans) are common in many settings, whether they be true animals - such asCujo - or anthropomorphic characters such as Shadow the Hedgehog: a true animal villain is not really evil, but rather guided by instinct or hunger (such as Jaws), while some may be more clever and malicious (such as Dr. Blowhole). Animal villains are also predators such as foxes, bears, and snakes.

Anthropomorphic animal villains however are usually the direct opposite and are guided by human emotions and ideals, such as Jenner's love of power or Hopper's hatred of opposition.

NOTE: Do NOT add beings such as Lycanthropes or any humans who have the ability to turn into animals to this category. This category is solely for characters that are originally animals.
