* Nagisa Aizawa from ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' was sent to Earth in order to study its culture and determine if her planet can open friendly relations with them. Mostly this means [[YouWatchTooMuchX she reads too many manga]]...I mean "historical documents", but one chapter shows a documentary about her efforts where she struggles to identify the purpose of a baby shower cap before deciding it's a decoration akin to the great frilled lizard.

*** Made a bit scaryier by the fact that he knows, compared to other witches and wizards, quite a lot about muggles. So there actually is a reason why he has the job he has, he is not only interested, he is an expert.

* In the ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', Ariel is hugely interested in what human life is like. However, she's got some very...''strange'' notions about us, mostly courtesy of her seagull friend who's info is completely off base.

** Earlier episodes imply that they are not used to running into planets with complex life. Most notably, their initial stay was supposed to last only a few weeks, which they had officially extended after reporting that Earth warranted longer investigation. Either this is a team meant to examine simpler things (Which would explain Tommy and Dick), or complex life is rare and there is no need for anthropologists. Of course, the most likely explanation is that competency is not a key characteristic of the Home Planet.

* At one point in ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' Karyl has an odd encounter with a strange and likely non-human woman who tells him she's visiting dying men to ask them what it's like to be human. Being as he is (amnesiac, naked, cold and dying), he gives her an unflattering description, which she listens to with interest.
