** ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax'' focuses its "past" timeline on the interactions between the titular nonhuman and the Once-ler, but the former barely appears at all in the "present" timeline, which constitutes the first third and last third of the movie. (Also, the Once-ler is now clearly human rather than AmbiguouslyHuman.)

However, this trope can be justified in light of the Lorax [[VillainsActHeroesReact doing effectively nothing in the original story but reacting to what the Once-ler does]].

** First off, there are the “basic” human fics that are the ones most often referred to by the term "human in Equestria". These typically consist of a human character from modern or near-modern Earth finding their way into the show’s setting and interacting with the cast. [[TropesAreNotBad While some have been genuinely very well-written and well-received stories]], enough have been badly enough written and filled with problems such as blatant {{Self Insert}}s, lore issues and overdramatization of the HumansAreTheRealMonsters and HumansAreSpecial tropes that the concept as a whole has become a subject of derision in the fandom as a whole. It is not uncommon for such fics to focus on the human character, with the ponies being reduced to foils.

* Take any franchise focusing mainly on {{mons}}, whether it be Franchise/{{Pokemon}} or Franchise/{{Digimon}}. Chances are, at least half of its fics are Human romances in which no Pokemon or Digimon are even mentioned ''whatsoever''. Many ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' fanfics also invert this and focus on wild Pokemon.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has the "human in Equestria" genre which consists of a character, typically "Anon"[[note]]Short for Anonymous, often portrayed as a green-skinned faceless character in a nice suit[[/note]] being thrust into the series and often hand most of the focus to the human character with the ponies serving as foils to him. Some are cringeworthy, while some like [[https://derpibooru.org/tags/comic-colon-anon%27s+pie+adventure Anon's Pie Adventure]] are among the most well-recieved fics ever made. It helps with Anon that the self-insert aspect is often mocked and he is frequently portrayed as a [[https://derpibooru.org/1229185 total ass]] or a [[https://derpibooru.org/1380140 complete doofus]].

Pokémon, with none of the franchise’s canonical human characters showing up.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has the "human in Equestria" genre which consists stories, made notable by that fact that it’s a fairly major point of worldbuilding that there are no humans whatsoever in the show’s canon setting. These generally come in three kinds:
** First off, there are the “basic” human fics that are the ones most often referred to by the term "human in Equestria". These typically consist
of a human character from modern or near-modern Earth finding their way into the show’s setting and interacting with the cast.

It is not uncommon for such fics to focus on the human character, typically "Anon"[[note]]Short with the ponies being reduced to foils.
** The second type, technically a subset of the first, has "Anon" (short
for Anonymous, Anonymous), a generalized human character often portrayed as a green-skinned faceless character person in a nice suit[[/note]] being thrust into suit, taking the series and often hand most role of the focus to the human character with the ponies serving as foils to him. titular human. Some such fics are cringeworthy, while some like [[https://derpibooru.org/tags/comic-colon-anon%27s+pie+adventure Anon's Pie Adventure]] are among the most well-recieved fics ever made.much more well-received.

** The third type are straight {{crossover}} stories, which, by virtue of most works of fiction focusing on humans instead of ponies, often invoke this trope by default. These tend to be much better received than the previous two kinds, as in this case the human characters come with both preexisting stories and characterizations and with emotional investment for fans of their works of origin.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': The "human in Equestria" genre is widely disliked for this, and because it focuses on some self-insert Mary Sue. The "Displaced" sub-genre (wherein the human also gains the abilities of a character from a completely unrelated other show or franchise) also counts.

* The same is said about ''Film/FreddyVsJason'', where said "vs" action only takes place during one brief dream sequence and then the finale. The rest of the movie is either Freddy killing people or Jason killing people in the same town, which ''was'' satisfying to fans of both but a letdown all the same to fans who went in [[JustHereForGodzilla hoping it focused on the two beating the crap out of each other]]. Similarily, ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'' puts nearly all its focus on the human cast and their battle with the [=MUTOs=], leaving the titular King of the Monsters with roughly 8 minutes of screentime. Those 8 minutes will [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome blow you clear across the room]] and the rest of the movie itself ''is'' very well done and entertaining, but was a major letdown to a large portion of fans who [[JustHereForGodzilla were really hoping for it to be about Godzilla]]. That said the ratio of Godzilla to not-Godzilla run-time is more or less equal with the [[Film/{{Gojira}} original film]], so this is OlderThanTheyThink.

* ''Film/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014}}'' still centers around the turtles but there's a heavy emphasis on April. Apparently its sequel is better about this.
