** ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' goes so far [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters in the opposite direction]] that it implies that any non-humans are automatically better than humanity by default, just because Lavos was heavily involved with and modified humanity into their modern forms. In practice, it's more like HumansAreFlawed and so is everyone else. Well, except for the dwarves with their actions against the fairies.

* The entire premise of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' was that humans would eventually grow into this state. The sequel series moved away from this; while ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]]'' mostly stuck with it, ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space 9]]'' really started slipping away during the Dominion War, and ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'' and ''[[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Enterprise]]'' mostly abandoned it. (Although, as a {{Prequel}}, it ''could'' be argued that ''Enterprise'' is simply set before it happens. Or that Berman and Braga [[CompletelyMissingThePoint just don't get Trek]].) The steady inversion of ''Franchise/StarTrek'''s meaning begins in the middle of Next Gen, reaching completion in Voyager. It parallels the fading of the WWII-survivor generation in the USA media.

In a SpeculativeFiction setting in which there are other species running around, human beings are AlwaysLawfulGood paragons of virtue. In reality, while perhaps not always exactly "paragons" if you will, you might be glad to know though that this, at least, can be TruthInTelevision.

* Turns up in ''Comicbook/{{Marvel Apes}}''. In the ape universe, [[{{Might Makes Right}} justice is based on claw]]; Comicbook/{{Spider|Man}}-Monkey find the human universe's idea of justice by law to be very appealing.

* When given a bit of thought. The very fact that there EXIST concepts such as love, compassion, empathy, kindness, charity, forgiveness, altruism, selflessness, sacrifice, humility, respect, utopia (and many, many others) suggest that even if we aren't outright good, we, at the very least, still try our best and do hold a certain significant ''spark'' of goodness.

In a SpeculativeFiction setting in which there are other species running around, human beings are AlwaysLawfulGood paragons of virtue.

Diametric opposite of HumansAreTheRealMonsters and HumansAreBastards, but does not always contrast with HumansAreFlawed, as nobody is perfect. Also contrast HobbesWasRight, which does not tend to go well with this Trope. Compare HumansAreSpecial. See RousseauWasRight.

->''"Man's goodness is a flame that can be hidden but never extinguished...No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must '''learn''' to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught '''to love''', for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."''
