* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has elves in pretty much every flavor, as well as orcs and dwarves, which are just different flavors of elves in that continuity.
** There are three "types" of races: human (Breton, Imperial, Nord, Redguard), elf (Altmer, Bosmer, Dunmer, Orsimer/Orc, Dwemer/Dwarf), and beast (Argonian and Khajiit). The amount of "differentness" seems to have no bearing on racial relations -- particularly among the elf races.

Demihumans are the {{Fantasy}} [[FantasyCounterpartCulture counterpart]] to RubberForeheadAliens. Related to {{Half Human Hybrid}}s, HumanAliens, and probably others. Depending on the story, they've been called [[OurElvesAreBetter elves]], [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame dwarves]], [[Literature/LordOfTheRings hobbits]], [[OurOrcsAreDifferent orcs]], [[AllTrollsAreDifferent trolls]] and many other names. The FiveRaces is a trope that classifies these creatures and explains how they live together in a setting that contains four or five such races; see that article for details.

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', C'hou now has plenty, though not the standard ones (though there are some of those amongst the outworlders). Among many others, C'hou is now home to demihumans such as Brillymen, Gashans, and Svenjaya. Most humans [[FantasticRacism take a dim view of these folks]] (e.g., the Svenjaya are indentured servants on the [[FloatingContinent Flying Island of Tipaan]]). Because the four are actually nice to them, interesting things happen.

* Neanderthals, a physically hardier species of hominid (or possibly ''sub''-species - it seems they weren't as different to us as was thought at first and inter-breeding may have been possible). Anthropologists have even speculated that many modern people of virtually all ancestry but sub-Saharan African may in fact have Neanderthal ancestors.
