* An variation occurs in ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}''. Part of Doctor Manhattan's subplot deals with his humanity slowly fading as a result of his new status as an omnipotent, non-linear entity. As such, he fails to understand why Laurie would be upset by his working in the lab while simultaneously in bed with her and later when he teleports them both to Mars, he's initially confused when she suddenly starts choking, having honestly forgotten that humans can't survive without a suitable atmosphere and ''need'' to breathe.

She's still amazed by everything, including the horrible stench.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' episode "Rad Monster Party" and the two following episodes, Ben and Rook go to the infamous Anur System, where all of Ben's monster-inspired aliens (Blitzwulfer, Frankenstrike, Snare-Oh) come from as well as the former domain of the evil Ghostfreak. Upon arriving, we learn that Ben is considered hideous and a monster. Ben finds it hard to understand why he would be viewed as monstrous, despite Rook calling him a hypocrite for not even considering that on a world he isn't native to that 'he' was the alien. In Ben's defense, [[FridgeLogic the fact there are aliens that happen to look just like monsters from classical movies is weird in how that is possible.]] Furthermore, Ben was actually enjoying his time there and thought that they were cool.
