  • Many predators (whether omnivorous or carnivorous) are usually pegged as bad, mean, or evil even though most are not especially mean or aggressive in Real Life.
  • Herbivores Are Friendly This trope and Predators Are Mean are so strong culturally that people assume that many Real Life predators (whether omnivorous or carnivorous by nature) are mean, evil, and nasty, and all the herbivores are cute, cuddly, and friendly!
