* The 100th episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', "Cancelled," reveals Earth to be a giant RealityTV show for the rest of the universe's silly amusement (apparently in-universe, humans, and all other life for that matter, did not evolve on Earth but are actually transplants from thousands of different planets. The rest of the universe is mostly segregated outside business purposes). Not to mention the whole "Space Cash" incident.

* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''. So much. EVERYONE is an idiot, except for Gaz and Dib (and even then, Dib's neuroses can lead to him coming off as this at times). The Irken Empire wasn't even aware of the Earth's existence: they just wanted to get rid of Zim and sent him on what they thought was an impossible mission. The episode where Tak is introduced sums it up quite nicely; her home base turns out to be much too big because it's actually a giant pump, so she disguises it as a giant hot dog stand. Dib asks why she didn't think anyone would notice, and Tak explains that the good thing about humans is that if there's anything like food or technology covering it up, they don't notice it; they just see there's food in that building, not that it's 50 feet tall.

* By ''Anime/DragonBallZ''[='=]s GenreShift, humans went from being aware of advanced martial arts and Ki in a WorldOfWeirdness to StrawLoser {{Muggle}}s who thought even the most blatant shows of KI were just fancy special effects, and that [[FakeUltimateHero Mr. Satan]] was all powerful.

What's weird is that this happens in less than a generation, and the in-universe explanation is never given.

*** Of course, K earlier noted that The Bug had a ''massive'' inferiority complex, likely related to the fact that his closest racial analogue on Earth was at the very bottom of the food chain.

A subtrope of HumansAreFlawed, Humans Are Morons shows that, when compared with other civilizations in works of SpeculativeFiction (or even lesser animals, on occasion), humans are nowhere near as technologically advanced, incapable of understanding such civilizations as being any different than [[AlienInvasion the most generic Sci-Fi stories]], very gullible, insanely superstitious, constantly having more astounding lapses in judgment than a more sensible being could possibly tolerate, far more primitive than realized (possibly even more savage-like than realized), and completely oblivious to all of this.

* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''. So much. EVERYONE is an idiot, except for Gaz and sometimes Dib (although he doesn't seem to have much common sense either). The Irken Empire could not care less about the planet and just use it to get rid of Zim.
