** Some sprites, like [[Series/TheXFiles Agent Fax Modem]], believe the User is a myth created by the Guardians who create games themselves so they'll be needed (possibly a reference to how the actual Mulder was an atheist despite believing all kinds of conspiracy theories). As this same episode had the Guardians try to blow Mainframe up to get rid of a web-creature, the theory actually had some credit, but said system restore in the next season actually shows the User manually typing commands, confirming for the viewer at least that he does actually exists.

* Humans evolved as [[{{Determinator}} pursuit predators]]: our ancestors hunted large prey simply by following it at a walking pace, without stopping ''ever'', until they die of exhaustion. They will run away but we just ''show up'' again and again. We are intelligent enough to figure out where they went by their fur and footprints and shit; and then when they think they have lost us and bed down for the night, a noise wakes them up and '''there we are! Waiting!''' And they run again. But we keep following them, always in the corner of their eye, until they just die. We aren't Cthulhu, we are goddamn '''''[[Franchise/TheSlendermanMythos Slenderman]]'''''.
** Eventually it went FromBadToWorse. Animals fleeing from the nomadic humans following them, led humanity wandering further and further from our birthplace in Africa. Eventually we chased new prey in new regions, who we followed in turn to more unexplored lands. Thus mankind scoured and populated the Earth, while our children grew more intelligent with each generation. Once humanity gave up the nomadic lifestyle and embraced permanent settlements we call civilization, their fate to be our CosmicPlaything was inevitable. Only a handful of creatures, like the dog and horse, realized it was better to become a SlaveRace.

* In Warren Ellis's Ultimate Galactus trilogy for UltimateMarvel, he spends 3/4 of the series revealing the reimagined version ([[spoiler: a hundred-thousand-mile long hive mind of giant, world-killing robots]]) of the planet-eating ComicBook/{{Galactus}} from the mainstream continuity. When [[ComicBook/XMen Professor X]] makes contact with Gah Lakh Tus, he is physically jarred by the utter horror and disgust that the being feels for organic life. In fact, the whole point of Gah Lakh Tus seems to be that of a [[spoiler: universal exterminator, that can sustain itself on any planet's core energy, but is dedicated to seeking out and killing anything organic simply because we creep the living hell out of it]]. In the end, scrappy little humanity/mutants/post-humanity/{{Eagleland}} comes together and uses a horrific, multidimensional superweapon powered by [[spoiler: aborting a baby universe with a hydrogen bomb]], and giving [[AGodAmI Nick Fury]] an even bigger ego in the process. Maybe Gah Lakh Tus was right to shit itself over us.

* ''WebOriginal/VeilOfMadness'', another /tg/ original tells of how when humans finally achieved interstellar travel, they came across the remnants of countless alien civilizations, all of them having succumbed to madness and self destruction. Finally, when the make contact with non-insane aliens, they learn the truth. Humanity resides in a pocket of space that makes all sentient lifeforms within it go insane, yet humans are somehow immune. When the non-insane aliens see human ships coming out of their equivalent of the Bermuda triangle, they virtually crap their pants. The humans decide to play up their Cthulhu status, noting that it makes negotiations very easy and deters the aliens from attacking them. Funnily enough, humanity notes that the fact that they're essentially playing a galaxy-sized practical joke lends credence to the idea that they're actually a little crazy.

* Played in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' with Lisa's tooth city in the Treehouse of Horror short "The Genesis Tub".Tub": they treat her as a god, and Bart as the devil, even as their technology surpasses that of humans. Eventually they shrink her down to bring her in as ruler, seemingly oblivious that the loss in size removed any actual advantage she had.

** PlayedForLaughs in ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' - the fish at the aquarium, along with several of the characters, consider [[Creator/SigourneyWeaver Sigourney Weaver]] a wise sage/goddess because of a recording of her voice welcoming people to the aquarium. At one point, Dory and Hank are thrown into the "Touch Area", where kids are sprawling through the aquarium picking all kinds of marine life, at which point the movie temporary switches the genre to horror. However, the humans are otherwise played un-monstrously.

** Humanity's interstellar empire, the New United Nations, directly possesses thousands of warships and can summon millions more from Zentradei and Meltrandi subordinates. Their weakness is having all these assets spread across the galaxy and the bureaucratic nightmare to coordinate it all. However if a deadly threat arises and gives humans enough time to relay existence of the threat to Earth, AwakeningTheSleepingGiant becomes the end result, as the [[InsectoidAliens Vajra Queen]] discovered when dozens of Macross warships arrived to destroy her.
