* Given that the average human in the MarvelUniverse seems to look at (and treat) [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} mutants]] with the same level of [[BullyingADragon rationality and compassion]] that the [[FantasticRacism white Southerners of the 1930's treated blacks]], or, as Magneto often lampshades, like how [[GodwinsLaw the Nazi Party in Germany treated Jews in 1938]], it's no wonder why mutants continue to flock to {{Magneto}}'s camp even after the man has been depowered. ''[[NotSoDifferent On the other hand]]'', Magneto has his own MasterRace propaganda and there are plenty of mutant villains. On a third hand, everyone in the story be they hero, villain, or {{muggle}} is still human.

* Pick a Cattle Decapitation song and chances are that the lyrics will inevitably be some form of this trope. Travis Ryan really, really hates humanity.

* In Music/JoannaNewsom's "Monkey & Bear", as Monkey begins to treat Bear more like a slave, Monkey also comes to resemble humans more. This parallels ''Literature/AnimalFarm'', in which the pigs had a similar character arc.

Since opposing races tend to be [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien sufficiently advanced]] or [[EvilEmpire incredibly large and/or powerful]], any action of wanting or invading can be seen as worse due to their lack of needs. Due to [[AnAesop unfortunate parallels to current human greed and actions]], however, it's easy to draw comparisons and show how humans can easily fit villainous tropes. Additionally, expect any form of attack against humans to be either [[SlidingScaleOfUnavoidableVersusUnforgivable out of fear or revenge]]. On a large enough scale, expect an AntiHumanAlliance or having HumanityOnTrial.

* A main theme point in ''Inugami'', where inugami (wolves with amazing [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/inugami/v01/c000/84.html abilities]]) are sent by a mysterious voice in their heads that says "gaze upon man". An inugami named 23 makes friends with a kind human named Fumiki, and his subsequent encounters with humans influences him into seeing humans as friends. The other inugami, Zero, sees humans as an example of this trope, since most of his encounters with them have involved violence.

* Though portrayed as the villains, demons and vampires in Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd believe humans to be the truly frightening ones, citing that humanity's greed and passion are why humans will ultimately be the ones who destroy the world.

*** The sequel series ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' follows up on this. The second series deals with spirits who mostly, in the past & in the present, pretty much look down on humans. The antagonist intends to "correct the balance" by [[spoiler:releasing the evil spirit Vaatu and become a Dark Avatar]] and allowing the spirits to roam the material world. Wan Shi Tong is shown helping him, due to anger at humans for using his library's knowledge. [[spoiler:The archaeologist is shown long since dead, having not been allowed to leave the library for food and starved to death]].
