Since humans make up the majority of fictional characters, and being a human isn't (normally) regarded as a strange character attribute, this is often used as an [[InvertedTrope inversion]] of traditional reveal tropes (such as NotEvenHuman).

Often, the humans initially appear inhuman because of a BalefulPolymorph, or because of being [[TranshumanAliens some form of transhuman]].

* This is one of the twists in ''Film/{{Pandorum}}'', the creepy alien mutant cannibals are descended from humans who've evolved to survive in a foodless spaceship over a thousand years. It helped that their ancestors were dosed with a treatment that caused accelerated evolution.
* In the film version of ''Literature/TheThirteenthWarrior'', the protagonist gain some courage in battle when he discovers that the Vikings' monstrous foes the Wendol are just men dressed up in bearskins. Later in the film, he and the rest of the band stumble upon a cave filled with the skulls of the Wendols' many [[ImAHumanitarian victims]]. He says he was wrong earlier, and claims that the Wendols are not men.

* In ''Literature/{{Dragonback}}'', the long-lost original [[TheSymbiote hosts]] of the [[OurDragonsAreDifferent K'da]] were called the Dhghem. Turns out that's actually "Human" in a really old language.
* The [[OurOrcsAreDifferent koloss]] and [[FaceStealer kandra]] from ''Literature/{{Mistborn}}'' both turned out to be transformed humans.

* There's one episode of the original ''[[Series/TheTwilightZone Twilight Zone]]'', titled "The Invaders", where a woman is getting unpleasant visits from tiny alien invaders. But those people turn out to actually be human beings from Earth, and the woman's world is the alien planet, and the alien we've encountered is a humanoid giant.
* An episode of the 1980s ''Twilight Zone'' had this as well: In one episode titled "Hunted", a group of soldiers were hunting down a monster known as the Kreetor. Turns out that the Kreetor is a human being, and the people we thought were humans are actually robots. We also initially assume that "Kreetor" is a linguistic devolution of "Creature". Turns out it was actually from the word "Creator".
* In an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', transporter-phobic character Barclay, when forced to travel via the transporter, sees some strange virus-like creatures in the matter stream. After suffering greatly due to his fears, he eventually figures out that those strange beings are actually humans, stuck in the pattern buffer.

* In ''Literature/TheHobbit'', Gollum is described as a strange and nasty creature of undefined origins. In ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'', we get to know he's in fact a proto-hobbit whose appearance and personality were twisted by centuries of exposure to the [[ArtifactOfDoom One Ring]].
