Examples of "friendly" monsters:
- Gentle Giants: Monsters of exceptional size and strength, but without the intention of causing harm and/or destruction to anyone. Examples: Mothra, Insectosaurus, The Beast, James P. Sullivan, Sweetums, Ginormica, and King Kong.
- Eye-Monsters: Some monsters either have more than two eyes or just one. Example: Mike Wazowski, Jumba Jookiba, B.O.B., Aragog and Eye Guy.
- Dragons: Supernatural flying lizards of all shapes, sizes, colors and even elemental breath, which are misunderstood creatures that can be tamed and in some cases, they are even capable of human speech. Examples: Toothless, Spyro, Cynder, Dragon (Shrek) and Mushu.
- Certain characters from Sesame Street: These "monsters" are naked furry creatures with wide eyes and an occasional nose. As seen in the case of Elmo, Cookie Monster, Grover and Telly Monster.
