* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' is an odd case. Hylians are variously the only humans, not humans, or just one of a few races of humans. For example, in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' and some games that have come out since, humans are broken up into races or tribes that include Hylians, Gerudo, Sheikah, and maybe some others. Other times, they're the ''only'' humans in the game. Whether normal round-eared humans are distinct from Hylians as a species is vague at best, considered a separate race in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' but not in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' or ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames''. In short, whether Hylians count as a case of this or not depends on the game.

* In ''Literature/WingsOfFire'', dragons call humans "[[scavengers|AreScum}}". Overlaps with CallAHumanAMeatbag as dragons think humans are weak creatures only good for a snack. The fact one of their queens was killed by a scavenger, who also stole her treasure, is a source of embarrassment and mockery.

* ''TabletopGame/{{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.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the Eldar race refers to humans as "Mon-keigh" (this being the eldar word meaning 'inferior', not to mention one of the [[{{Anvilicious}} least subtle]] puns ever). The Tau race use the base word "Gue" for humans, and distinguish between allies and enemies with "Gue'vesa" or "Gue'la" respectively[[note]]the latter being another incredibly unsubtle pun, derived from a Chinese word for foreigners[[/note]]. The remaining species of the universe (Orks, Necrons and Tyranids) refer to humans as "'umies", "the living", and "dinner", respectively.
