One of the most daring - and nurturing - actions of a hero or heroine is when he or she tames a monstrous creature, animal, or beastly human. Sometimes it can be easy; other times it can be difficult. This can range from calming a giant monster or tending to fearsome animals.

(Iron Giant: Hogarth...) (The giant reverts back into his gentle state.) It's okay, it's okay. We gotta show them you're good.||„|
