* In ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', [[spoiler: While the Beasts are vicious, the Yharnamites are much more sinister than anything else. Both the [[ReligionOfEvil Healing]] [[CorruptChurch Church]] and the [[MadScientist Byrgenwerth]] [[AcademyOfEvil College]] willingly twisted the messages from the [[EldritchAbomination Great Ones]] for personal power; instead of shaping a better world as the Great Ones desired, the Church and the College ruined the city of Yharnam, turning it into a CrapsackWorld.]] [[spoiler: Even the Moon Presence was no exception: as an [[WasOnceAMan ex-hunter]], he was actually helping the Hunters to [[StartXToStopX undo what the Great Ones did]] by creating the Hunt, but instead got treated as an enemy and [[NiceJobBreakingItHero slain by his own kind]], [[WhatTheHellHero which is]] '''''[[YouBastard You]]'''''.]]
* Humans are this way to the monsters in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', as not only is a single human potentially stronger than an army of monsters, but unlike nearly all monsters, their soul remains after death. Even the soul of that rare exception, the Boss Monster, can only linger about for a very short time. [[spoiler: Humans also possess [[TheDeterminator determination]], which can be powerful enough to bring them back from the dead and even take advantage of in-universe SaveScumming. A few monsters are also capable of taking advantage of determination (like Undyne) but the results of the determination experiments at the True Lab reveal that said monsters tend to melt afterwards. Flowey can use it like a human, because he's ''not'' actually a monster, and even then the human player's determination overrides his until he takes control of six human souls.]]

* The ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Blink of an Eye" has the titular ship find a planet that appears to spin much faster than normal, causing a YearInsideHourOutside situation on it, with a Stone Age civilization nothing the appearance of a new star in their sky, accompanied by an earthquake. They instantly assume that the new star is a god that demands worship. The ship ends up stuck in the planet's oddly-shaped gravity well. Meanwhile, the planet's civilization advances rapidly (from an outside viewpoint) to the point of figuring out that the "star" is a "Sky Ship". They even attempt communicating with the "Sky Ship people", but, by the time the messages are received and decoded, the people who sent them are long dead. The planet's people develop space travel and send a ship to make contact. After the ship and the crew transition to the "normal" time flow, they effectively vanish from the planet's sensors, and it's assumed that the "Sky Ship people" killed them. [[spoiler:They focus their space program on developing weapons capable of taking down the "Sky Ship" and start throwing progressively more powerful missiles at it. One of the astronauts (the other one didn't survive the transition) heads back to the surface, having realized that this trope is false, and manages to convince his compatriots that the ''Voyager'' is not an enemy. As the ''Voyager'' is falling into the gravity well, two local ships appear and tractor her to safety, the people below having already surpassed Federation technology]].

* In something of an ImageBoards RunningGag, the "Orb of Infinite Psyche", an artifact introduced in ''Roleplay/DiveQuest'', allows the possessor to correspond with disembodied, extradimensional voices hinted to belong to some sort of {{eldritch abomination}}s, which offer advice but are as likely to [[{{Troll}} toy with the wielder]] for their own BlueAndOrangeMorality as to be genuinely helpful. These are, of course, the commenters.

** Members of a kingdom of ants start spontaneously combusting. One ant in despair asks God why he is doing this, then the camera zooms out to show Franchise/IndianaJones using the Staff of Ra and unknowingly burning the ants in the model city.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'', the heroes find themselves in a dimension populated by ghosts, who are as afraid of human as humans on Earth are afraid of ghosts. All except the [[EvilCounterpart People Busters]], that is, this dimension's way of handling them.
