** 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.

** What is especially odd is that there are so many muggle born witches and wizards. FantasticRacism aside, why isn't one of them given his position?

* Eris from ''LightNovel/AsobiNiIkuYo'' is sent as an scout by her species the [[CatGirl Catians]] to check Earth as a suitable diplomatic partner. Note that the Catians' outlook is pretty much that of tourists: her reports on Japanese cuisine makes the Catian expedition hurry to establish formal relations.

* In ''KeroroGunsou'', whenever the Keronians aren't plotting to take over Earth, they're studying its culture, occasionally getting it hilariously wrong: in one chapter, they assume that Natsumi's {{school swimsuit}} is an amphibious battle-suit based on Keronian physiology, and in another they mistake a bowling alley for a military training center.
