* The Celestials of the Franchise/MarvelUniverse go around seeding life on worlds. Occasionally they visit and judge them with their own mysterious criteria. Those races that don't pass the test die. And yes, humanity is one of those races, and the Celestials did almost execute them. And nothing's stopping them from making a repeat visit down the line either. [[spoiler: At least until [[ComicBook/SecretWars2015 The Beyonders came and massacred the Celestials]]. And then[[ComicBook/TheUltimates2015 LOGOS]] [[FromBadToWorse arrives to finish the job.]] ]]

* In one of his journeys Creator/StanislawLem's Ijon Tichy from ''Literature/TheStarDiaries'' represents Earth before some kind of parliament of an interstellar Federation. The Earthlings are found guilty of killing and consuming living organisms, both animals and plants, which is highly immoral by the Galactic norms. But Earthlings are viewed not as criminals, but as miserable cripples, and the real culprits are an [[NeglectfulPrecursors ancient (but extant) race]] whose starship left organic waste on an uninhabited planet allowing such a perverted life to evolve. [[spoiler:[[AllJustADream Then Ijon Tichy wakes up]].]]

* It is eventually revealed that the whole entire plot revolves around one of these in ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2''. It has been going on for ''centuries'' and is reaching the point of no return when [[SilentProtagonist Ludger]] [[TheChosenOne Kresnik]] gets involved, dragging the previous game's cast along with him. Oh, and one of the trial runners is [[MovingTheGoalPosts rigging]] it. [[spoiler: Whether they pass it or get off on a technicality ([[BadEnding or you screw it over]]) depends on the player's choice at the end of the game.]]

The {{Sufficiently Advanced Alien}}s are not pleased. The human race has been warring, polluting, nuclear-bombing, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking not looking both ways before crossing the street.]] So now, they've come to put HumanityOnTrial.

* In ''Literature/HaloHuntersInTheDark'' it's not so much humanity on trial as literally ''everyone in the galaxy''. [[spoiler:000 Tragic Solitude, the Arks's monitor,]] is convinced that the sentient species of the galaxy will never change their ways, and will forever war with themselves or others, or (more importantly) unleash more Flood and destroy more Forerunner installations. [[spoiler:The sentence is death, first to humans, then eventually to the rest of the galaxy.]]
** This is somewhat of a subversion as sapient life's 'advocate', [[spoiler:Olympia Vale]], slowly realizes that [[spoiler:Tragic Solitude is completely psychotic and pretty much immune to any kind of logic or reason, so instead of arguing the Spartans just smash his remote processors while the Sangheili's Huragok takes over the Ark's systems.]]

** This is also subverted, as the Bible also states that each individual human is on trial for their own sins, and (apart from the aforementioned exception) [[HumansAreBastards all humans]], [[HistoryRepeats past, present and future]], [[HumansAreFlawed have sinned in some form or another]]. Since [[HumansAreFlawed humanity]] [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption is not capable of overcoming sin on our own]], and God didn't want us all to condemn ourselves to [[AndIMustScream Hell]], He [[TakeAThirdOption gave us]] [[{{Jesus}} a way out]].
