* Vash from ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' feels directly responsible for [[EvilCounterpart Knives's]] crimes and it is strongly hinted that he believes that independent plants are monsters who pose a direct threat to mankind. In the manga, he is terrified of their potential uses of plant power and is shown struggling with the ethical implications of his existence and Knives's. He even thinks at least twice that they shouldn't exist: at the end of the [[spoiler: Jenora Rock incident]], he thinks that Knives and him [[spoiler: shouldn't have been born]]. At the end of the manga, he also tells Knives of [[spoiler: his decision that they should both die together because they are too powerful and have no place in the future of Gunsmoke]]. (Ironically, though, Vash and Knives are [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory strongly implied to be (fallen) angels come to pose judgement on mankind]]--which is what Wolfwood seems to believe.)

* in the new ''[[Anime/MazingerZ Shin Mazinger Zero]]'' manga, Kouji has a moment of this after a moment of unnatural UnstoppableRage in which destroys a rogue manufacturing robot with his bare hands
-->'''Sayaka:''' What? How in the world did you do...''that''!?
-->'''Kouji:''' I...I don't know. It just happened
-->'''Sayaka:''' It "just ''happened''?" Kouji, that wasn't even humanly ''possible''...
-->'''Kouji:''' ...Does it scare you?...I'm like a monster, huh?\\

* Setsuna, ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima's'' local [[HeroicAlbino albino]] [[HalfHumanHybrid half]]-{{Tengu}} [[HunterOfHisOwnKind demon hunter]], has severe personal issues about her past. This is somewhat fixed by Konoka [[FreakinessShame telling her she looks good]] and Setsuna becoming an fairly important part of Negi's TrueCompanions.
** As of chapter 288, [[spoiler: Negi himself]] feels this way after [[spoiler: seeing his SuperPoweredEvilSide in a dream]].
* Played with in the manga Takumi Dash. Takumi plays this straight in the series proper, but in the one volume long Mirror Universe, his counterpart has a very different view on being BlessedWithSuck.
--->'''Alternate!Takumi:''' I am a monster, a jackass, a man slut and a demon, ''and it is awesome''. Good God, I love my life! I'm gonna go rob a [=McDonald's=]!
* [[spoiler:Van Hohenheim]] from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''.
** This is his catchphrase for at least the first half of the manga. (Usually in the form of 'What the hell are you?!' 'A monster.') Once we get his backstory and he joins up with the rest of the main plot, he more or less stops saying this. Partly because he had to reassure one of his sons that ''he'' was human.

* [[spoiler: Vivio]] views herself this way near the end of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' when she discovers that [[spoiler: she's nothing but a clone made for the purpose of powering a massive battleship]]. She even stops calling Nanoha [[spoiler:"Nanoha-''mama''"]] and instead calls her [[spoiler:"Nanoha-''san''"]] since she doesn't view herself as human. [[spoiler:Bear in mind, she was ''six'' at the time]]. Nanoha helps her the way she knows best; [[WarriorTherapist some kind words]] and [[WaveMotionGun copious amounts of firepower]].

* Sylvester in ''Literature/{{Twig}}'' openly and happily embraces his role as a monster, taking comfort in his disconnection with the rest of humanity. Much of his character arc instead revolves around his dismayed discovery that at his heart, and against his best efforts, he's actually a ''pretty decent person.''
