** If anything, the story explores civilization development, and aims to show that 'natural development' - superior, while 'uplifting, no matter how small' - inferior, as this is mainly what separates the Alliance and the Citadel.

* [[PlayingWith Played with]] in ''Fanfic/MassEffectEndOfDays''. It is a different-tech fic, where humanity created a synthetic partner-race, the Vision, and developed technologically and sociologically independent from eezo and the relays. When they finally do make contact with the Citadel, humanity's tech is in an order of magnitude higher than the Citadel's. However, it is pointed out that humanity is only on that level thanks to their A.I, which lessens the impact of "organic variables" - like costs and pay - while all the Vision needs is materials and time. The "superior"-part is the fact that humanity managed to achieve peace and understanding with their creations, and their civilization as a whole is presented as superior to the Council. But as individuals, the aliens are just as good.

* Guts (''Manga{{Berserk}}'') is a human swordsman known for casually taking Gods and demons leagues above human ability on a daily basis.
* Despite her display of beyond omnipotent abilities, Medaka Kurokami (''Manga/MedakaBox'') puts strong emphasis that she is just an ordinary human.

Often the ''Homo sapiens'' race is [[SuperSoldier genetically, technologically]], and [[MightyWhitey racially]] [[BadAss enhanced]] or turned into a trained TykeBomb force in the attempt to ensure Humankind always comes out on top against the ScaryDogmaticAliens. This usually works, with the resultant super soldiers and the navy turning the tide of the wars in humankind's favor. Eventually after the war is finished the super soldiers end up as a sort of SpacePolice, and with the [[TheEvilArmy Imperial Forces]] in the case of an evil humanity. Sometimes the ruling agencies lead by a HiddenAgendaVillain has the intent of upgrading the human race genetically.

* In Creator/FredSaberhagen's ''Literature/{{Berserker}}'' novels, the [[TechnicalPacifist technically pacifistic]] Carmpan race (they are literally pained by even indirect performance of a violent act against any species, but have no trouble giving humans militarily useful intel) found in humanity the potential "{{badass}}ness" to be effective Berserker-killers, and so trained and equipped us to be just that. They were certainly deeply indebted to humanity for suffering the scourge of war through its history until the point where nothing less would serve. But where did the Carmpans train and equip Humanity? What follows suggests that the humans had all the goods:

** This is the ethos of the god [[http://archive.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/ex/20041203a Zarus]] -- who also happens to be a LawfulEvil egomaniac who believes that [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman non-humans]] deserve enslavement and {{Half Human Hybrid}}s deserve death, and whose official dogma reads like bad fanfiction, so his word on the subject is less than reliable.

* The ''Anime/OnePiece'' world runs on the rule of thumb that [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority]]. Despite the existence of races far stronger than humans naturally (such as Fishmen and Giants)), the [[OneWorldOrder World Government]] and it's military is ultimately composed of humans, with humans occupying powerful positions in said military. And on the other side of the spectrum, the strongest pirates in the world, The Four Emperors, are all humans as well, with non humans playing minor roles in their respective organizations.
