** In early games, Mario and Luigi were considered to be normal people from New York who could just jump high. This was dropped, and since then... It's really not difficult to see that, even among human characters, Mario and Luigi are incredibly unusual. A couple of standouts are the fact that they were born in the Mushroom Kingdom, were delivered by the stork, and may not have ever made it to their parents; and can survive the end of the universe. ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' adds to the ambiguity of Mario's species by showing him interacting with realistically proportioned, less stylized humans from another world. According to Nintendo documents from 1993, Mario is categorized as a sub-species of human called "Homo Nintendonus". Whether this is still accurate, or whether it was meant to be accurate at all and not just a joke, is unknown. [[note]]It should be noted that the guide featured now long outdated information about Mario characters, such as acting like Mario and Luigi had a significant gap between their ages, so it should be taken with a grain of salt, at least.[[/note]]

** Goku Black is an antagonist who looks [[EvilTwin nearly identical]] to Goku and even has a moveset that is similar, but the derogatory, observational way he talks about Saiyans and other mortal races, along with his odd fascination with Saiyan abilities, indicates that he probably isn't one himself. Goku and Whis speculate that he's a copy of Goku made by [[BigBad Zamasu]] using the Super Dragon Balls, after originally thinking that Zamasu [[TimeyWimeyBall will become him in the future]]. [[spoiler:Eventually it turns out that they were [[AccidentallyAccurate almost correct]]: Goku Black is revealed to be an alternate version of Zamasu who used the Dragon Balls to swap bodies with his timeline's Goku, making him a Kai in a Saiyan body.]]

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' has Salem. She looks like a woman, talks like one and acts human enough. She even identifies herself as "we" when referring to mankind in the first episode's introduction. However, she has unnatural white skin, purple veins over her face and arms, black sclera and glowing red eyes with vertical pupils. Her color scheme matches that of the Monsters of Grimm and she has the ability to talk to them and control them. It's ambiguous as to whether she's a human that has been corrupted by the Grimm, a humanoid Grimm, a Grimm possessing a dead human host body, a human-Grimm hybrid, or something else entirely.

* ''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.

** Due to not being from Earth-1 or [[Series/Supergirl2015 Earth-19]], the show is ambiguous as to what the Music Meister is. Is he a metahuman? An alien? Is he magical? Or is he something else entirely? The fact that he could escape a cell in the Pipeline, something no other metahuman is capable of, without anyone knowing and his powers are far more fantastical than what Barry or Kara usually deal with suggests he might not have been something they are used to.

** 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. Even when we confirm what he looks like under his mask, the fact he can turn his eyes black rather than make them glow and actually deepen his voices rather than vibrate makes him unsettling.

** ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'': Due to the show never going into her past outside of wanting to remain a child, we never learn what Morgana is. Is she a human with magical abilities, a HumanAlien with abilities like the people of KO-35 or an alien that just looks human?
