** The Slendermen all qualify as this, as do all other Fae, in one fashion or another.
** Harry himself is noted as occasionally coming off as 'slightly otherworldly', and not in the harmless Luna Lovegood sense. Then he [[spoiler: dies and is possessed by the Phoenix and all bets are off.]]

** The Slendermen all qualify as this, as do all most of the other Fae, darker Fae (even the relatively nice ones tend towards the border regions of the UncannyValley), in one fashion or another.
** Harry himself is noted as occasionally coming off as 'slightly otherworldly', and not in the harmless Luna Lovegood sense. Then He moves with too much grace to be human, he can quite literally read minds (after chapter 60) and he carries around an aura of power that makes people's instincts start screaming.
** In chapter 71
he [[spoiler: dies and is resurrected and possessed by the Phoenix Phoenix]] and all bets are off.off. Also, in chapter 78 when he's [[spoiler: possessed by Chthon.]]
** Voldemort becomes this, following his resurrection, which is rather different to canon. Not only does he have his horcruxes, while he looks human, like an older Tom Riddle, he's walking around in a body constructed from [[spoiler: Peter Pettigrew's biomass [[GrandTheftMe (yes, he didn't just possess Pettigrew, he stole his body and reshaped it entirely).]] Worse, he's got powerful PsychicPowers, a proclivity for absolutely brutal MindRape, and [[VampiricDraining feeds off the life-force of others]] and it's not entirely clear whether he's actually properly alive or not.
** [[spoiler: Nathaniel Essex a.k.a. Sinister]] is treated as such. He's immortal, capable of VoluntaryShapeshifting, has strong PsychicPowers, can - somehow - hide from even Doctor Strange's tracking and Heimdall's sight, his base form is [[spoiler: deathly white, with a strange red gem in his forehead.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, the mother of the legendary Sage of Six Paths. Where she came from and whether she was human to begin with is unknown, but she had horns, the Byakugan, a ThirdEye combining the Rinnegan and Sharingan, [[spoiler:and considers herself the progenitor of chakra, which she possesses an unfathomable amount of]]. She was both worshipped as a goddess and feared as a demon due to her overwhelming power, [[spoiler:and her means of bringing "peace" to the world involved using the [[LotusEaterMachine Infinite Tsukuyomi]] on people and then turning them into [[PlantPerson Zetsus]]. When she saw her sons had inherited her power and were teaching others to use it, she assimilated the [[WorldTree Shinju]] transformed into EldritchAbomination to get it back.]]

*** While it's downplayed compared to their Old World of Darkness counterparts, mages themselves are not human, but are fragments of one of five other universes, each with different laws of physics that the mage can bring into this world, sometimes at a cost, but which fundamentally don't belong. In a rare case of Awakening being creepier than Ascension, mages were specifically sent from those universes, by entities unknown and for purposes not quite unknown. Why "not quite"? Because there are mages still in contact with the entities that chose them. They're called "the Seers of the Throne" and the things the voices in their heads tell them to do are capital-E Evil, but clearly planned and coordinated, and they demonstrably have not simply been driven mad in one of the various ways the setting can do so.


Added DiffLines:

** The players in MageTheAscension are themselves walking fragments of a different universe, with wildly different laws of physics (called the mage's 'paradigm') who are only housed in human flesh to prevent this universe from destroying them for being That Which Should Not Be. Every single mage's powers run on a completely different set of rules, and the only consistency is that they often fail and damage the mage because the universe itself recoils in horror from the very notion of the player's true self. As part of gaining power, mages have to occasionally interact with that true self directly in the form of their avatar, described as something that their approximation of a human mind initially has to dramatically reinterpret to even perceive. The reason that there aren't many godlike mages running around is primarily that past a certain level of understanding of what he is, a mage loses all interest in this world and ascends back to where he came from.

He manifests as a [[PowerFloats floating]] ''thing'' of [[SuperSmoke inky black smoke]], kept in humanoid form only by an [[BadassLongRobe all-covering mantle]] and several [[WhiteMaskOfDoom white masks of doom]] he is able to switch instantly.

The main exception is their Practitioner, an intelligent humanoid Gaia Cancer that directs the others. [[spoiler:Another exception is Wilhelmine, who is the result of Ofa being forcibly turned into a Cancer Devil.]]

* ''ComicBook/AmericanVampire'' contains some examples such as {{Dracula}} (depicted as a humanoid being seemingly made out of shadows that can drive people insane with his presence) and the Japanese Vampires (Xenomorph-looking aberrations that can infect humans in matter of minutes), but the biggest one in the series is [[TheDragon The Gray Trader]]. Think [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos the Slenderman]] in a world where several vampires breeds and bloodlines exist, and ''he''is [[TheDreaded the most fearsome thing around]]. He is no vampire, but actually a human who became the champion and protector of an EldritchAbomination.

* Modern CthulhuMythos author Creator/WHPugmire has dedicated many stories to Nyarlathotep. His own original creation is Selene, who is related to Nyarlathotep and appears as a woman with near-black skin and flowing red hair. She's closer to the FairFolk in her portrayal but eventually departs to sit with her "Elder Sibling beside the entropic throne of Ultimate Disorder."

Subverted in that he's undeniably one of the good guys, even if he ''lives'' in the UncannyValley and therefore frightens the hell out of his subordinates. [[spoiler:What happened was that he was summoned and bound in the 1930s, taught to pass for human, and eventually HumanityEnsues. Strangely, it's implied that he believes in decency and fairness more than the people around him--he's not averse to pulling a few strings for Bob and Mo's sake.]]

** The Doctor certainly thinks that [[LovableRogue Jack Harkness]] is one and the TARDIS agrees with him: According to the Doctor, Rose (as Bad Wolf) didn't just revive him and make him immortal, she turned made him a living ''fixed point''. The TARDIS went as far as to travel to the end of the universe to get rid of him when he grabbed it, and the Doctor's Time Lord instincts make it difficult to even look at him without mentioning how "wrong" he is.

** Then there are their kin the Hekatonkhire, Spectres who lost their minds to Oblivion on the road to becoming Onceborn, giving them the power of the Onceborn without the intellect to back it up. This does ''not'' make them any less dangerous.
** ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' has the Assamite Methuselah ur-Shulgi, a creature steeped deeply for millennia in the knowledge of violence and war-magic. It looks like a child with heavily scarred obsidian-black skin, bits of bone and sinew protuding from beneath in some places, as if it had been flayed. Its eyes have been removed, either gouged or burnt away, yet it claims to be able to see without hindrance. It remains motionless when talking, unless it wishes to make a point through a display of violence, and if it absolutely ''has'' to change position to do anything other than kill, it doesn't move so much as [[FlashStep flicker from point to point]]. Whatever it thinks or feels cannot be understood by anything not of its age or power... and there are precious few of those.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' stars AnthropomorphicPersonifications of nations, and they're all very cute due to the [[RuleOfCute art style]]. However, their existence and how they come into being is unexplained, they're functionally immortal after reaching a certain point in their lives, and only fall ill when the country they personify is in dire straits. They have a powerful HealingFactor that lets them regenerate near-instantly from [[GoodThingYouCanHeal wounds that would be fatal for humans]], many are subject to BizarreHumanBiology with their [[IdiotHair ahoges]] and other parts, and their immortality at times rubs off on animals close to them. The first chapter of World☆Stars even alludes to this:

Granted, she can look however she wants, but it's nonetheless her preferred form.
