* 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.

** 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.
* VideoGame/ChronoCross uses the term for PettingZooPeople. TheFairFolk are considered a subspecies.
* ElementalWarOfMagic - The only "official" one is the Fallen, a bunch of half-dragon, half-human gents.

* In a similar vein to the [=BlazBlue=] example above. The Faunus of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' are humans with [[LittleBitBeastly animal traits]]. And like the aforementioned example, they are also discriminated against. A notable few just decided to take a more...radical approach to their protests.

* The Marat in ''Literature/CodexAlera''. They look human, but they all have [[HairColors white hair]], BondCreatures, and some [[UnfortunateImplications other things]] that set them apart from humans. Justified, as they are implied to be descendants of Neanderthals who were brought to AnotherDimension.

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]], [[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.
