** Lrr, the perpetually angry and warlike ruler of Omicron Persei 8 is a fan of modern-day Earth sitcoms like ''[[AllyMcBeal Single Female Lawyer]]''. Although ''Friends'' doesn't make sense to him. He doesn't understand why Ross, the largest, doesn't eat the other five. *** They were saving that for sweeps.

* Some [=AIs=] in ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' order human foods that they can't consume out of appreciation for their aromas or aesthetic qualities. For an android with military-grade olfactory sensors, a cup of tea is [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3147 quite an experience]].

* The Thraddash in StarControl 2 are a race of ChaoticStupid [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Warriors]] who have bombed themselves back to the stone age multiple times, only to develop a new "Culture" that tries (and fails) to fix the problems with the last one. If you defeat enough of them, they are so impressed that they request your help in coming up with their next Culture. So you send them some Film/TheThreeStooges films, and they like them so much they they reinvent their entire civilization around emulating them.

** The same shopkeeper also mentions that human sports games are really popular among the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Krogan]]. Which makes you wonder what will happen when they discover American Football...

Mention is made elsewhere of krogan players on American Football...Football teams, which does seem like a sport the krogan would enjoy.

* The unggoy in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' have a black market built around human soap operas, sitcoms, and the like. This probably has more to do with them being tasked to monitor UNSC communications and their superiority at learning (and therefore familiarity with human language) compared to the rest of the covenant than any fondness of humanity.

Subverted in that it's one sign that he's not really in his right mind: the Didact clearly isn't as receptive of his former enemies (though he likes their liquor), and the sculptures have crowded the command deck so that slight changes will shuffle and shift them around.

** Also the exploitation movie "Blasto", which parodies DirtyHarry with a Hanar in the lead role, a race of pacifist, philosophical jellyfish aliens. As of ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', Joker mentions that "Blasto 6" is currently in cinemas, apparently a [[BuddyCopShow buddy movie]] in the style of LethalWeapon. In the Citadel DLC Shepard and Javik get roped into cameoing in the next one.

-->''"I hadn't known you were a connoisseur of Kdatlyn artwork."'' -->''The puppeteer scratched idly at the floor with one of its fore-hooves. Beowulf ignored it, concentrating on the touch-sculpture. The exhibition was supposed to be some of the greatest works by the Kdatlyno sculptor, Loobee. It was an impressive sculpture, to be sure, but nothing really to write home about visually. He ran his hand across it, vaguely feeling the surface texture of the work. "It's not bad, but I don't know if I'd call it a masterpiece" he said finally.'' -->''The puppeteer turns its heads to look itself straight in its own eyes, a gesture Schaeffer had come to associate with Puppeteer humor. "Perhaps you're not getting the full intended effect," it said. "Try touching it with your tongue. Your tongue is much more sensitive than your fingertips."''

* In ''Literature/AlienInASmallTown,'' it turns out that the one thing that almost all alien races (at least the ones with a sense of hearing) think humans are genuinely good at is making ''music.''

* In Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''Literature/ArrivalsFromTheDask'', it's stated that few alien species have as wide a variety of art forms as humans. Many understand painting, sculpture, architecture, culinary arts, but fiction appears to be a mostly human invention. Most aliens think that using written symbols or live actors to portray something that is made up is a sign of mental disorder bordering on schizophrenia. Only the [[SpaceElves Lo'ona Aeo]] have figured out the importance of fiction and actively trade for all forms of it. One novel is mostly devoted to a member of a human delegation searching for someone who understands forms of art like this on the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Haptor]] homeworld. ** In the first novel of spin-off ''Trevelyan's Mission'' series, Ivar Trevelyan travels to a HumanAlien planet stuck in MedievalStasis. He pretends to be a WanderingMinstrel and frequently translates songs and ballads from Earth into the local language, passing them off as his own, impressing the natives, whose own songs are not as well-developed. This is especially evident in love songs, where Ivar utterly dominates.
