* In ''OrionsArm'' Terragen life (not just humans) has only been space-faring for 10,600 years or so. Of the Xenosophont races that have been contacted the Silent Ones have been at their present state for at least 150,000 while Muuh civilization is millions of years old. On the other hand we did bootstrap a number of less advanced races such as the To'ul'h.

* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' humanity has been a part of galactic civilization for a millennium, that civilization is around 20,000 years old. And the Gatekeepers whose PortalNetwork built that civilization have been at it for 100,000, some individual Gatekeepers have been around since before humans had agriculture, and their roots go back six million years or so.

* Mostly played straight in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}}'', though on somewhat greater timescales than is usual. The Imperium of Man may well be ten thousand years old, and humanity may well have had interstellar travel for the last 37,000 years, yet the Eldar, Orks and Necrons are many times older still. However, the situation is reversed with the Tau, who were primitive hunter-gatherers just 6,000 years ago, in fact they would have been wiped out by the Imperium if a freak warp storm hadn't destroyed the colonization fleet. Culturally the Tau embody a kind of naive youthful optimism - their society is bright, hopeful, scientifically-minded and technologically advanced, compared to the stagnant, superstitious and highly xenophobic Imperium of Man that dominates the galaxy.

It's also played with in that humanity is in ''serious'' decline; the modern tech is obviously below the Eldar and Necrons, but the few times we've seen technology from humanity's height at full power it utterly [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] them.

** As are the Vulcans, but with FantasticRacism that declines from ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' to ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''.

** As are the Vulcans, but with FantasticRacism that declines from ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' to ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''. Even in Deep Space Nine, at least [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS07E04TakeMeOutToTheHolosuite one Vulcan captain]] apparently built his entire academic career out of this (and taunting Sisko in particular).

** Everyone else, meanwhile, sees Earth as InsignificantBluePlanet that is barely civilised at best and too much trouble for its own good, and a manifestation of Asgardian eccentricity. Others who get a closer look at Earth, however, like Mar-Vell and the late Jor-El, saw a certain something in humanity.

* In Creator/AndreNorton's SF universe, not only are there species with recorded histories many times humanity's entire existence, these species have no records of the Forerunner civilizations that flourished before it.

* In ''Literature/{{Silmarillion}}'' humans are made last by the Valar. First Iluvatar made the Valar (demigods), one of which made the dwarves before Iluvatar had planed to awaken the elves, so Iluvatar told the Valar to keep the Dwarves in hibernation until he had released the Elves. Only once those two races had existed for a long time did Iluvatar finally create or awaken men. They have the least life-span of any race of middle earth (hobbits and dwarves make it to the hundreds, Elves on forever) and are seen to be coming into their own only in the third age.

* Occasionally brought up in the ''StargateVerse'', when humanity meets the Nox and the Asgard, two of the Four Races that were the most advanced civilizations in the local galactic group. The Nox are rather patronizing and condescending about it, while the Asgard see potential in humanity and are willing to help the species along in its development, saying that one day, human civilization could stand among the Four as equals... as a Fifth Race.
