** Eldar are also a lot more inhuman than their appearance would suggest. Physically they look like [[SpaceElves tall pointy-eared humans with almond-shaped eyes]], but their musculature is somewhat different (making them stronger than their lithe appearance might suggest), their reflexes are far superior to human ones, and they experience emotions far more strongly than humans do. Eldar pregnancy also lasts much longer than humans (exact length is not mentioned, but it's implied to be several years). According to ''Xenology'' (a background book which contains reports of autopsies of several different alien specimens, written from an in-universe point of view), Eldar internal organs also differ from human ones, their skeleton is of entirely different composure (being more flexible and plastic-like than human bones), their droppings are crystalline, they have no conventional teeth but instead have serrated pieces of jawbone not unlike some species of birds, and their DNA is composed of two entwining double helixes. Also, [[FantasticArousal their ears may be erogenous zones]]. However, ''Xenology'' is not the most reliable source, and much of what is written in it is directly contradicted by other sources.

** The Space Marines superficially resemble oversized humans, but that's where the resemblance ends, as the process that turns them into Marines involves surgical insertions of multiple extra organs, restructuring of their skeletons, and more. Among others, they have two hearts, a third lung, organs that let them [[EatBrainForMemories access memories from flesh of others]], a membrane enabling them to enter suspended animation, near-total immunity to non-Chaos poisons and illnesses (they can actually store poison and use it later), ribcage remoulded into rib''box'' and "second skin" under normal one that doubles as light armour and enables controlling their PowerArmour with thier mind. They're also capable of breathing water to some extent and their lungs can filter air so that they can walk through sandstorm and be barely affected, not to mention that all of their senses are greatly improved.

* On ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', despite the fact that Zim can pass as human with only a minimal disguise it's implied that Irkens have none of the same internal organs as human beings. They do, however, possess a master organ called a squeedlyspooch around where humans have stomachs [[note]]In a DVD commentary, series creator Jhonen Vasquez stated that it carries out all body functions[[/note]]. The episode "Dark Harvest" revolves around this: Zim, in an effort to perfect his human disguise, crams his body full of stolen organs, including six hearts and spleens in three different colors. Irkens (or perhaps just Zim) also have allergies to some very common items... like water (possibly just polluted water), meat, and barbecue sauce.

* Used to a small degree in ''Manga/MyTwoWings'', in which members of [[spoiler: Makoto's dad's species]] are ''all'' hermaphrodites, for starters. In an [[InvertedTrope inversion]], it's subtly implied that humans are a fair bit hornier in general.

** The Wraith are both insectoid and vampiric. Physically they look like RubberForeheadAliens, but their humanlike digestive system is vestigial. Instead, they feed on the life energy of humans through mouths on their hands, and when well-fed they are extremely strong, fast and tough. Their society resembles an ant colony, with a ruling queen and many subservient drones under her.

Their society resembles an ant colony, with a ruling queen and many subservient drones under her. They are apparently (somehow) evolved from the insect-like Iratus bug, which similarly feeds on the life force of its victims; apparently feeding consistently on humans for a long enough time caused some of the bugs to become humanlike themselves, gaining human intelligence but with the side effect that the Wraith can ''only'' feed on humans (or [[MonstrousCannibalism other Wraith]]).

** This is done with ''humans'' in the episode 'The Communicator' when Archer and Reed are captured on a pre-warp planet who initially think they are spies; when medically examined, the aliens comment on their "redundant renal organ" and "red blood with haemoglobin based on iron, a toxic element" and that they are missing four vertebrae.

However, their captors assume that Archer and Reed are genetically engineered SuperSoldiers rather than aliens.

* Inversion: In ''March Upcountry'' by DavidWeber and Creator/JohnRingo, aliens poison the food of a squad of human soldiers and try to blackmail them with the antidote. Not only is the poison tasteless to the aliens but strongly flavoured to the soldiers, it also turns out to not affect humans. In a further inversion, the human's doctor discovers another poison (an obvious expy of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fugu fugu venom]]) can be used to produce the several nutrients the humans need for their own health but they hadn't been able to find up to that point in the planet's flora and fauna; and just in time, as their reserve of supplement pills were running out.

** Humans who spend a lot of time exposed to time travel acquire immunities to certain time travel phenomena. There is an implication that the Doctor's companions are slightly 'changed' after traveling with him through time due to the exposure to the energies of the TARDIS.

* In ''MorkAndMindy'', Orkans can drink with their finger (and use various PsychicPowers focused through their index fingers), have three hearts, physically age backwards, and hatch from eggs which come from [[MisterSeahorse the male's bellybutton]]. And according to the pilot episode, their "parts" are interchangeable. In the season 2 opener, Mork takes some medicine designed to shrink nasal membranes, then says that Orkans are ''all'' membrane and shrinks down to the scale of an Earth-like nano-world.
