Added DiffLines:

* The world of ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' has plenty of superbeings far more powerful than the player characters, whether set up as [[{{GMPC}} GMPCs]] or NPC boss fights, which represent greater agents of the PowersThatBe. However, it's made clear that ''only'' player characters are able to influence the outcome of the CosmicChessGame that drives the series. This puts the Powers in a bind, since they can't promote their most successful agents to a higher power tier without [[ThePeterPrinciple negating their effectiveness]].

* A major recurring point of ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' is the differences that really make humans stand out from demons, angels, and gods. One of the major themes of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' is how humanity's power of [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve observation]] (i.e. understanding) is what allows gods to exist, which is why [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly gods are so keenly interested in convincing humans to believe in them]].

*** Also, _collective_ humanity pretty easily trumps mages both individually and collectively. They're no longer the bedrock that holds the consensus together as in the ''TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness'', but they're still the source of Paradox (the force that causes magic to backlash and fail) and they have the most powerful and magically valuable souls in the setting short of possibly the Magi themselves, in a setting where souls are a very real and powerful force.

** Brutally deconstructed in fan-supplement ''TabletopGame/SirenTheDrowning'' with the Current of Lethe, a faction of Sirens who genuinely believe Humanity to be special and the most important species on the planet. Which has led them to the conclusion [[CantArgueWithElves they can never be wrong and are always justified in their action]], even though their careless pollution of the planet will lead to [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the Deluge]] (something Sirens are supposed to ''prevent'' them from doing) and some of them are hunting Sirens so they can become immortal by consuming their flesh. This has resulted in the entire Current becoming [[LesCollaborateurs fanatics who actively support them in these actions and gleefully join them in hunting other Sirens]].

* In ''Fanfiction/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', this is subverted; The ponies either hold humanity in high regard - as an ingenious civilised culture (Lyra in particular seems to see them as the pinnacle of creation) - or they treat them with wary irreverence - as carnivorous predators. Chrysalis just sees them as uppity monkeys with DelusionsOfEloquence.
