* ''Film/TheyLive'' features humanoid aliens with bulging eyes and no skin. However, they broadcast a hypnotic signal which causes them to appear completely human, even to the touch, allowing them to secretly conquer Earth. Their true form can only be perceived through special sunglasses that filter out the signal, or if the signal is interrupted.

* Played almost completely straight in Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''ArrivalsFromTheDark'' series. While there are some StarfishAliens and LizardFolk, most races are of humanoid nature and some are even capable of interbreeding with humans (although this is a rare case). Several are sexually compatible but are not capable of producing offspring together. There is also a race of SpaceElves who are specifically referred to as "pseudo-humanoids", as they have 4 sexes and reproduce telepathically. It should be noted that the LizardFolk still have a basically humanoid shape with the only addition being a tail. However, they are hermaphrodites. The ''Trevelyan's Mission'' series, taking place in the same 'verse but much later, introduces other humanoid races, mentioning hundreds of others that have been found in-between the series, most of which are on primitive development levels.

* The Croutonians in the 90's sitcom ''They Came From Outer Space'' are also indistinguishable from human except for their inner biology like eating tons of food and producing smoke during coitus.

* The Martians and Venusians of SMStirling's ''TheLordsOfCreation'' novels look human because they are (more or less); the eponymous beings, in prehistoric times, Terraformed Mars and Venus and seeded them with Earth life (repeating the process several times, so that on Venus you have humans sharing the planet with dinosaurs and mammalian megafauna).

* In the ''YoungWizards'' series, two of the four alien species involved in the wizardly cultural exchange program look human. And there's a guest appearance by a [[Series/DoctorWho Time Lord]]. A few of the {{Mooks}} are RubberForeheadAliens. All the rest of the aliens are definetly not human, with a few of them being StarfishAliens.

* The S and Stars seasons of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' brought '''so''' many Human Aliens (or at least aliens that were ''originally'' human in appearance) from across the galaxy [[TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse to Tokyo]] that one could wonder if non-humanoid intelligent lifeforms really existed at all! Even the [[TalkingAnimal talking cats]] Luna and Artemis, who were aliens from the planet Mau in the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]], could assume human forms. (Rei's crows Phobos and Deimos were also revealed to be aliens who could take human form in the manga.) The {{Filler Villain}}s Eiru and An from the start of the second season were also aliens who could assume human form, though the villains from the first season and the rest of the second season were originally from Earth.

* The Plants in ''{{Trigun}}'' look exactly like humans, all to various degrees. The ones used as power look semi-humanoid with wings and other assorted appendages, while Vash and Knives can easily pass for human. This is because plants were made by humans.
** In the manga however they are [[spoiler:beings from another dimension with different laws of physics]] which is why they can generate power from seemingly nowhere. In their default state they also look something like a [[spoiler:human glued to a bunch of baby corpses, tumors, and angel wings.]]

* The Coralians in ''Anime/EurekaSeven'' are born with various shapes and sizes for their forms, including human Coralians like Sakuya, [[spoiler: Eureka and Gonzy.]]
** Justified in that they were [[spoiler:created to look that way.]]
* Haruko Haruhara from ''Anime/{{FLCL}}''... maybe. She claims to be a 19-year-old space patrol officer, but is actually a galactic criminal out to find the Pirate King Atomsk. Its kinda hard to be sure of anything Haruko tells anybody. Other than pink hair and yellow eyes, Haruko is entirely humanoid. Also she fights with a Rickenbacker guitar, uses a house cat as a walkie-talkie, and has a flying Vespa.
** She can change her voice and probably appearance at will, as seen in episodes 1 and 5, which puts her in the AFormYouAreComfortableWith category. Which would also explain what happens to her face when she's angry.

* In ''LightNovel/CatPlanetCuties'', not only do the Catians look exactly like humans except for the [[{{Catgirl}} cat ears and tail,]] they even called THEIR planet "Earth" until they decided to make contact with us, then re-named it to Catia for our convenience. This seriously ticks off Beautiful Contact, a group of hardcore sci-fi fans who insist that humanity's FirstContact with an alien species should be with a race that looks more dignified and unearthly.

* The people of Queen Earth don't consider themselves human in ''Manga/NurseAmgelRirikaSOS'' but for all appearances are near identical to humans. The main differences seem to be their unusual powers and [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair equally unusual hair colors]].

* ''VideoGame/GalacticCivilizations II'' has a race called the Altarians, who are essentially Humans With PsychicPowers. The Altarians even call the [[HumansByAnyOtherName Terrans]] their "lesser cousins." It's implied in the backstory, however, that the two races might have a common origin.
