* It's no secret that ''Manga/OnePiece'' has a lot of {{Gonk}}s and generally strange-looking people, but Gecko Moria seems too weird for even these. He is the tallest non-giant seen in the series, he has pure white skin, very sharp teeth, pointed ears and horns and generally looks like some [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot monster clown devil]], not really traits you connect with your average guy. Later knowledge of a race called "Snakenecks" came to light after his introduction, and given his very long neck and reptilian features it's a possibility. WordOfGod has at least stated horns (which Hannyabal also has) are something some people naturally have in the story's world.

** Related to the above are hermits. Most are humans who get super-powers out of a strict training regimen. But there does seem to be some physiological changes, given that they act as RareCandy to youkai. And they might not all have started out as human. The first hermit character introduced, Kasen Ibaraki, is very strongly implied to be an oni who's only pretending to be a hermit.

** Lunarians. They're humans that moved to the moon to avoid kegare, so they no longer die of natural causes, but the profiles always list there species as "lunarian". All of the known ones are based on Shinto gods, which just makes things more confusing.

There's nothing ambiguous about it, we find out he's an octopus within about a minute of his introduction. It seems more an example of Hugh Mann.
* Dr. Brine from ''WesternAnimation/PenguinsOfMadagascar'' looks like a human, but his movements fall deep in the UncannyValley. He's actually just an octopus in disguise named Dave.

** Snoke, the leader of the First Order in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', at first appears to be a gigantic humanoid alien. However, we only see a hologram of him, so that might not be his real size[[labelnote:*]][[Creator/AndySerkis His actor]] said in an interview that Snoke was about seven feet tall, but given Snoke's appearance/presentation was greatly subject to change even very close to the film's release, it's unknown if this is accurate to the finished film.[[/labelnote]] The way his facial features diverge from humans could plausibly be from scarification, much like Sidious. The EU usually portrayed the Empire as being prejudiced against aliens, but it's unknown if this applies to the First Order or is even canon to the new trilogy at all.

No spoilers above the example line. See Spoiler Policy.
...so, did you Spot the Human yet? [[spoiler: He's the one on the far right.]]

Added DiffLines:
* ''Film/SatansLittleHelper'': Even for a silent horror villain, "Satan Man" seems almost inhuman. Not only does he not talk, but at one point he shoots himself in the hand. Not even a physical reaction.

* It's still unclear what all of the "wonders" from Joss Whedon's arc on ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' were. It doesn't help that the word was apparently used as an umbrella term for various sources of power.

* It's still unclear what all of the "wonders" from Joss Whedon's Creator/JossWhedon's arc on ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' were. It doesn't help that the word was apparently used as an umbrella term for various sources of power. It's worth noting, though, that of the most prominent examples, Lillie and Tristan managed to live to be at least 116 years old, since they were both still alive in the modern day, and Tristan was able to survive having gigantic metal wings bolted onto his body ''and a nuclear blast.'' ** In the original series, Molly's parents at one point insist that she can't possibly be a mutant, because they had her tested for the X-gene and the tests came back negative, raising the possibility that she's something else.

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', the Reverse-Flash is depicted as this. He certainly ''looks'' human from a distance, but he's also constantly vibrating in an unstable manner, lets out inhuman screeches on several occasions, has glowing red eyes, and claims that his goals are beyond the understanding of normal humans. Not to mention just a general vibe of [[UncannyValley unnaturalness]]. [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11119/111190794/4359017-4143491798-the-f.jpg Take a look]].

He's even able to make his glow without his suit. ** Zoom, BigBad of season 2, is enough that in-universe people doubt there's even a human underneath his costume. The only part of his body his semi-organic looking suit doesn't cover is a pair of shark-like black eyes. He's fast enough to grab lightning and throw it. His voice is deep and almost Satanic. Wells [[spoiler:of Earth 2]] says he ''was'' human.
