* Ultimately what happens to most of the human cast in ''TrueBlood''. In season 7, [[spoiler: the Humans prove to be just as dangerous if not even more so than the infected Vampires, plan to kill anyone different than they are, and kill Alcide.]]

** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' features computer viruses called "Bugsters" that manifest in the real world as video game bosses. They attack people because manifesting involves taking over a human host and causing stress lowers the host's resistance; but this pales before Kuroto Dan, who first discovered the virus. He thinks himself a god because he can program whatever he wants into a game, and the Bugsters mean that he can potentially control the real world the same way. His end goal is to turn the world into a SurvivalSandbox game where everyone will have to fight for their lives. Kuroto is also [[EvilIsPetty really petty]], going out of his way to deliver DisproportionateRetribution on anyone who angers him for the smallest reasons.

* One of ''Franchise/KamenRider''s central tropes is the PhlebotinumRebel; the man who has became monstrous against his will and uses his new power for good. As a result, they're regularly contrasted with humans who are not monstrous yet are more evil then the actual monsters. The BigBad of each season is often an irredeemable human who has ''made'' himself monstrous in pursuit of his goal.

** In ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'', the BigBadEnsemble of Greeed were created hundreds of years ago by an ambitious king in a bid for world domination. While the Greeed were willing to screw everyone else over to fill their desires, the final villain is Dr. Maki, a nihilist who turned himself into a Greeed in order to end everything.

** We get treated to this trope in a later episode "Planet of the Ood". [[spoiler:The humans who found them isolated the Ood Brain (the core of their ''hive mind'') and after an indefinite amount of time started to hack off the Oods' hind-mind (the external chunk of brain sticking out of their face that governs personality) and replace them with translator orbs. They're treated like cattle and gassed if they become violent.]] Of course, not ''all'' humans are bastards: there are people protesting against the slavery. They're called "Friends of the Odd".

** Played with in ''Series/KamenRiderGhost'': The Ganma monsters were originally presented as demonic spirits, but it was later discovered that they were humans (or HumanAliens) making use of soul-manipulating technology, thereby playing the trope straight. However, [[spoiler:all of the Ganma turned out to either be good, decent people, or redeemed themselves into becoming so by the end. The true threat came from the Ganmaizers, artificially-created enforcers who enacted a ZerothLawRebellion. The theme of the season was "bonds between people", so it makes thematic sense that the villains were beings who had none.]]

** The famous anti-hunting rendition of "For What It's Worth" featured little woodland animals singing about "a man with a gun over there", and periodically ducking under cover as trigger-happy human hunters blundered through the scene, firing at everything that moved.
** [[spoiler:And then promptly subverted at the end when the hunters reveal they were trying to bag ''construction equipment''.]]

* The original ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' is rife with this trope. In ''The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street'' as well as in ''The Shelter'' a suburban town tears itself apart after a perceived invasion/attack. ''The Eye Of The Beholder'' and ''Number 12 Looks Just Like You'' highlight our superficial views on aesthetics (''TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside''). ''Third From The Sun'' (with a hint of ''NuclearWeaponsTaboo'') and ''Probe 7, Over and Out'' show our repetitive barbarous irresponsibility. ''I Shot An Arrow In The Air'' shows our hatred and evil tendencies in the face of death. ''The Rip Van Winkle Caper'' shows how greedy we can be even with our "friends". ''The Little People'' shows ''DrunkWithPower'', and perhaps the best example of this trope; ''People Are Alike All Over'' where [[spoiler: alien benefactors who shower gifts upon an earthling reveal their demeanor as a ruse when they abduct him for exhibition in a martian zoo]] (''FaceHeelTurn'')

** To be fair, [[spoiler: Shadows are even more misguided then humans, but are not inherently evil (though they may look it).]] Humans on the other hand just have an affinity for power, even if it wasn't earned.
