* ''Franchise/StarTrek'' likes doing this. A typical Vulcan has a much larger "nonhydraulic" heart located where a human has his liver, copper-based green blood, nictating membranes in his eyes, a body temperature over 105 degrees Fahrenheit, and a standing pulse rate of over 200. (And [[MateOrDie Pon Farr]]! Who can forget the Pon Farr, from which a million [[SlashFic slashfics]] were born?) Klingons have evolved truly complex redundant biologies, making them next to invulnerable, though prone to many minor malfunctions. They also have [[AlienBlood thick, pink blood]], though we have seen otherwise, including in the theatrical version of ''Star Trek VI'', which introduced the idea (video releases restored a scene showing that the red-blooded Klingon was really a human wearing a mask). Kes, a very human-looking alien in ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', is shown in one episode giving birth through a sack in her back. There are certainly others.
** This is lampshaded in ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', where Koothrappali wonders out loud why no alien women ever told Captain Kirk to get his thing out of her nose.
** Humans ''do'' have the advantage of living ten times or so longer than Kes's race. Yay us.
*** And we have better hearing and tolerance to light than the Cardassians too, hurrah.
*** We see much better than the Vorta, but their hearing is much better than ours to compensate, and at least some of them are telekinetic. Also, they have a very limited sense of taste. Neener neener.
*** Humans also can withstand the cold better than the Klingons. It seems that Snowball beats Batleth!
** And the Trill are (two or) three species with separate degrees of this. The Trill symbionts are alien slugs that live for millennia. The humanoid Trill are, conveniently, fitted with a womb-like pouch inside the body that can bond with the symbiont Trill. When bonded, a Trill composed of a symbiont and a humanoid host now have one mind and one personality, to the extent that they are legally a brand new species. How the two species ever figured out that this could be done (it's not exactly the most obvious thing you'd think to do when meeting another intelligent life form) is unclear.

* In ''Fanfic/HardBeingPure'', Noa's mutation changes her such that her bones are an alloy of Orichalium and Mythril, her whole body substitutes for her brain, and she doesn't bleed since her flesh is more like synthetic plastic than living tissue.

* The inhabitants of Mewni from ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' are beings from AnotherDimension who look identical to humans from the outside, safe for their females (or at least those in the royal family) having {{Blush Sticker}}s with unusual shapes (for example, main protagonist Star's are heart-shaped) which sometimes change according to their emotion. Female (it's unknown if it's also the case for males) teenagers will go through a variant of puberty called "Mewberty", which causes them to become boy-crazy and eventually turn into purple-skinned moth people who will attempt to abduct any boy in sight until it passes, at which point they will return to their original form with only small wings as a reminder of the event. They can also survive decapitation and even have their severed heat implanted on the neck of a ''horse'' with no apparent problems.

* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'', Osmosians look externally like humans, but have the ability to absorb matter and energy, as well as minor degrees of super strength and durability, which increases when they do. Though to them, pure energy is a GRatedDrug that drives them insane if they absorb too much of it (though this is reversed if the energy is discharged). Also, Osmosians can live much longer than humans and those who live for hundreds of years grow horns.
** To be fair, in [[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse Omniverse]] we find out that [[spoiler: "Osmosians" look as human as they do because they ''are'' humans, just mutated a bit, and Aggregor, the only member of the "species" to have horns was artificially created.]]

* Most aliens in ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'' are StarfishAliens, albeit Jeeb's unnamed specie is identical to humans in every aspect other than their ability to regenerate any wound including the destruction of the head. In the series itís explain that this specie do not breed oxygen but does need it for the regeneration.

** A literal example of human outside and alien inside are the Arquillians; diminute aliens inside human body suits.
** Kay shows Jay that aliens do exists by blowing up a Pawn Shop Owner's head. The alien looks exactly as a human but his head regenerates. (In the animated series this is expanded as the ability to regenerate the entire body).

Added DiffLines:

* In Chapter 18 of ''FanFic/OriginStory'', Alex Harris (a Kryptonian) discusses the physical differences between humans and Kryptonians with her human lover, Louise Fulford. Among the differences Alex mentions are the location of the Kryptonian heart (its center right, as opposed to being center left, like in humans), the lack of anything resembling an appendix, one fewer set of molars, a menstruation cycle that occurs only once every three Terran months, and fewer body hairs per square inch of skin. Alex also notes some differences that make humans superior to Kryptonians -- or would, were it not for Earth's yellow sun turning Kryptonians into PhysicalGods. Things like Kryptonians being more susceptible to environmental allergens, and having eyes that weren't as sensitive to shades of color than a human eye.
