* The kif from Creator/CJCherryh's ChanurNovels have two sets of jaws, one at the front of their mouths and one at the back. The front set of jaws is used to rip flesh off of still-living prey, while the second set chews the meat into a paste before swallowing it (the throat of a kif is so narrow that it's incapable of swallowing anything solid). Further, the kif are carnivores who can only eat fresh meat, where "fresh" means "could be used in organ/muscle transplant operations". Meat that most other species of carnivores would consider fresh will make kif so nauseous that even when starving to death they'll be unable to eat it.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5585493/1/Enter-the-Dragon Enter the Dragon]]'' Literature/HarryPotter as a dragon has bones made of orihalcum, a stomach made of ceramic and hot enough to boil lead, and [[ExtremeOmnivore can (and does) eat nearly everything]], with a particular liking for steel and petrol. Furthermore, rather than grow continuously like most species, he grows rapidly for a couple months every few years then stays the same size until his next growth spurt.

* [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Raven]] is completely unaffected by alcohol in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10561760/1/What-Happens-in-Vegas What Happens in Vegas]]'' due to her demonic heritage, but a date rape drug acts like ecstasy.

** Asari can mate with any sentient species in the galaxy and produce viable offspring. This includes just about every species you see listed. Talk about BoldlyComing. It's indicated that they actually use their partner's DNA to randomise their own, producing a genetically unique child. Asari can also obviously mate with each other, but this is frowned upon in their society as it can lead to producing an [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Ardat-Yakshi]].

* While only shown in a single episode, [[HumanAlien Procardians]] in ''Series/TimeTrax'' appear human but tend to [[PhosphorEssence glow brightly]]. They are also able to levitate for a brief time. When threatened, they instinctively blast the threat with an energy pulse that is powerful enough to put a human in a coma. Their vocal cords are unable to produce human sounds, although they can learn to understand human speech. Their own speech sounds extremely strange and creepy to humans (think modulated inhuman wailing). The oddest thing about them is how they age. Instead of gradually changing like us, they stay the same for years until approaching a threshold, at which point they quickly (and painfully) change into an older form, which may make it difficult to recognize the same person. They are a peaceful race, who consider humans to be far too primitive to initiate FirstContact. They finally change their minds in the [=22nd=] century, although a scout ship of theirs visited Earth in the late [=20th=] century.
