** Related to this is humans take revenge, which is almost alien to apex predators, who are used to weaker animals giving them wide berth. If a lion kills a young Zebra, the herd move on. If a lion kills and eats a young human, the humans can and will find them. And they will massacre any lion in it's path until they are sure they have the right one. And there is never just one human after them.

** Someone literate from a fairly advanced ancient society (the Ancient Romans and Greeks are the first two which come to mind), when paired with someone from the present day who speaks the relevant ancient dialect, probably wouldn't react to us like we're Cthulhu. Someone from ancient Greece would likely recognize a modern shopping mall as being similar to a Classical Greek Agora and that a modern Amphitheatre isn't all that different, construction methods aside, from an ancient one. A literate ancient Roman has it easier because they will recognize most of the capital letters used by Romance and Germanic languages, along with a lot of the technology we inherited from them.

A ''literal'' version of HumanityIsInfectious: Earth goes to the planet doctor. "Doc, I've got a nasty fever!" The doc does a few tests: "Hmmm. It seems you've got Homo Sapiens. But don't worry, this will go away soon."

* [[BlackComedy Played for laughs]] in one of the episodes of ''Animation/AdventureTime''. In that episode Magic Man injects Jake with something, that causes entire world, full of sentient beings to grow inside his stomach. As Jake, trapped inside this world, gets hungrier, his stomach growls, causing powerful earthquakes. One of the beings tries to get out of the stomach to get food from the outside world, which he believe to be populated by gods (given the fact that their entire world is just a stomach of one of these beings, he isn't too far off). He succeeds, but sees Finn with a noodles hanging out of his mouth. Realizing, that "gods", which he believed to be beautiful, look like that, he [[GoMadfromtheRevelation goes through nervous breakdown and dissolves]] in truly Lovecraftian fashion.

** A story-within-a-story seen in ''Carnivores of Light and Darkness'' tells of two warring anthills contacting a man, probably to get him to help destroy the other mound. One group of ants sees this as a divine miracle.

** The science fiction trilogy ''The Damned'' has two vast coalitions of aliens at war with each other for millenia across the Milky Way. One faction (the good-guy underdogs) discovers Earth and finds that compared to every other known intelligent species modern-day humans are unbelievably fast and strong and savage, both physically and psychologically (none of the other species is particularly good at the concept of "waging war"). They ultimately decide they have no choice but to recruit humanity to their cause anyway, knowing that once the war is won they'll have a very dangerous situation on their hands trying to figure out how to live safely with their allies.

* The titular antagonist It is a shapeshifter from outside the universe who can influence minds, possess people, feeds on fear, and gains power from belief. The protagonists use this belief to trap It in certain forms, force weaknesses on It, and make It beg for its life. And when It returns decades later, they do it again!
