* ''{{Traveller}}'' divides "humaniti" into the "Solomani" (humans from Earth), the "Vilani" (HumanAliens from the planet Vland), and the "Zhodani" (HumanAliens from the planet Zhodane). The ancestors of the Vilani and the Zhodani were originally moved to those planets by the {{Precursors}}. There are several other minor human races, which were similarly transplanted from Earth.

* The chock-fulla-weird-races ''{{Talislanta}}'' game system generally refers to humans by their nationality, and virtually ''never'' as "humans". The fact that some of those "human" nationalities lie well outside the range of physical types known on Earth -- green humans, metallic golden humans, purple humans; humans with bat ears or webbed hands or no nose -- would make the use of "human" seem incongruous at best.

* In ''GuildWars: Eye of the North'', the Asura use the pejorative term "bookah" for humans. In a cutscene, the term is revealed to refer to a violent, clumsy, stupid, bellowing imaginary creature used to frighten Asura children. This has somewhat expanded to cover any race they see as less intelligent than the Asura, meaning every other race.

** The Tyranids were retconned to actually be named after a world - Tyran, the first Imperial planet they ''ate''. Knowing the Imperium, the name probably came from some filing protocol: the Tyranids were first properly identified on the planet Tyran, and thus the data probably got filed under "Tyran-ID" and the name stuck.
