** ''Stolen Memory'', a piece of DLC, involves going into someone's art gallery. Kasumi, your companion, can remark on various pieces, saying for instance that asari go wild for ancient Egyptian relics, and being disparaging towards an abstract turian work which appears to be a few steel girders randomly welded together..

** ''Stolen Memory'', a piece of DLC, involves going into someone's art gallery. Kasumi, your companion, can remark on various pieces, saying for instance that asari go wild for ancient Egyptian relics, and being disparaging towards an abstract turian work which appears to be relics. Interestingly, she claims the the least visually impressive piece, a Turian sculpture that looks like a few steel girders randomly welded together..together, is probably the most expensive one. In the same breathe she comments that Turian art is rare to find outside of their space...for a reason.

* ''Fanfic/{{Remnants}}'': After Zek steals some of [[VideoGame/MassEffect Joker's entertainment]], his crew of Kig-Yar fall in love with human entertainment. In particular they find the cast of Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean, Film/{{Gremlins}} and Film/{{Jaws}} quite relatable. They absolutely ''abhor'' the works of William Shakespeare though.

* In {{Traveller}} K'kree perfumers are famous. K'kree have the best sense of smell of all the "major races" and so their perfume can sell well to others.

** One of the straightest examples in {{Traveller}} is the J'aadje. They are obsessed with beauty and what looks beautiful to them will often look beautiful to a human. Not least of these reasons is that popularity tends to be the goal so symbolism is downplayed among them to make sure that the works are as impressive as possible to the uneducated. Therefore there is no need to worry about inscrutable and untranslatable cultural concepts.

*** Ziyal's paintings themselves are a somewhat extreme case, as apparently mixing Cardassian and Bajoran painting techniques somehow ends up producing works that are appreciated by both cultures.

* In the Creator/AlanDeanFoster novel ''Nor Crystal Tears'', the Thranx, a species of intelligent insectoids, makes an alliance with Humanity. One poet notes that this development is not only fascinating to contemplate, but also gives him a new audience as well as we see him take a bow from an enthusiastic human audience to one of his readings.

** Considering the culinary arts, it's shown that most species (who have an identifiable digestive tract) have their own unique range of tastes, but mostly can ingest the same things as other species. In fact, there's certain foods that 'all' cultures seem to agree upon. Specifically, every single known race makes Swedish Meatballs. While homeworld ingredients and names vary wildly, the taste and texture between them all are virtually indistinguishable, the dishes are interchangeable, whether it's Narn Breen or Centauri Roopo balls. There is no explanation; G'Kar comments that if anyone were to determine the reason, they would [[GoMadFromTheRevelation surely go mad]].

*** Also played with in the episode ''The Wire''. Garak gives Dr. Bashir a Cardassian novel to read and Bashir thinks it's terrible (and from the description we get of it he's right). Meanwhile Garak reads Julius Caesar and is thoroughly unimpressed, commenting that Caesar should have known Brutus was going to betray him from the first act.

Meanwhile Garak reads Julius Caesar and is thoroughly unimpressed, commenting that Caesar should have known Brutus was going to betray him from the first act. This leads to Garak failing to explain the point of the "repetitive epic", and Bashir failing to explain the concept of "tragedy".
