** Human art, however, is widely appreciated, with alien characters quoting Franchise/StarTrek, collecting a garden of Earth plants, and even playing DungeonsAndDragons.

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

* In Arthur C. Clarke's short story "History Lesson", long after the death of humanity, Venusians are baffled and fascinated by the sole relic depicting Earth's civilization, an ancient movie. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:it's an animated cartoon, "A Walt Disney Production".]]

** In the last episode of the fifth season, Vir mentioned that he and Londo heard some Pak'ma'ra singing. And that it was beautiful. As an example, WordOfGod says that in the "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jli3ruqWYlc one moment of perfect beauty]]" scene from the Season Two episode "There All Honor Lies", the monastic singers were all Pak'ma'ra.

* A tragic example in the third ''Literature/ALordFromPlanetEarth'' novel, where [[spoiler:the hostile aliens with a BlueAndOrangeMorality have been inadvertently led to believe that war and torture can be beautiful by human art (beauty being the race's guiding principle). It's not until the end of the novel that the protagonist ends up showing them the truth - WarIsHell]].

* 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.

** Ravage the Predicon is described as being hugely addicted to mindless TV shows; they're the only thing that can distract him from going on a berserk rampage against everything in sight.

* Averted in the ''Literature/ChanurSaga'' by Creator/CJCherryh. For the color-blind kif art consists of objects with bumps, concavities and varying textures which is appreciated by feeling it with your hands. For the stsho art consists of interior art and abstract paintings, both of which are done in infinite shades of white.

** Like Bulkhead before him, [[WesternAnimation/TransformersRescueBots Boulder]] is a lover of art and nature, and is often seen painting during his down time.
*** In the episode 'The Alien Invasion of Griffon Rock', the bots mention their favorite film genres: Heatwave likes war movies, Blades likes comedies, Boulder likes Romance, and Chase likes action flicks with chase scenes. Averted with the historical film they see.
---> '''Boulder:''' I used to think everything on Earth was interesting.
*** In 'Bots and Robbers', Chase develops a love of detective novels.
*** Salvage likes to collect bits and pieces of rubbish, partly out of fascination, partly to make it into new things. His EstablishingCharacterMoment has him be fascinated with Cody's harmonica, and then later make a Cybertronian sized one out of scrap.
