* A mild example in ''Film/StarTrek'', as Sarek (a Vulcan) says that "emotions run deeply within our race, perhaps more deeply than in humans."

" The ExpandedUniverse and the later TV series have gone into more detail about this; the reason Vulcan culture is so big on logic and rationalism is that before that sort of thing caught on they fought more and bloodier wars than any other notable Trek race except possibly the Klingons, culminating in at least one nuclear exchange.

* In L. Jagi Lamplighter's ''[[ProsperosDaughter Prospero Regained]]'', the characters reach the deepest pits of Hell and feel the temptations of the creatures imprisoned there -- the insane temptations.

* In the re-imagined {{V-2009}}, the HiveQueen alien Anna and [[spoiler: most members of]] her species insist that they do not feel human emotions [[spoiler: despite the influence of their human skin]]. However, Anna is also a diligent {{Determinator}} who wants her species to survive and is ready to make great sacrifices for it. She later seems strangely overjoyed at the thought that her daughter will grow up to be just like her and save the species, despite the fact that she jeopardizes her safety well-being and safety without remorse to help the specy.

* The vampires of ''TheVampireDiaries'' have an odd relationship with human emotion. They can voluntarily switch their emotions on or off as it suits them, though this ability is said to fade with age. When they do experience emotions, they experience the same emotions that they would have as their human selves, but magnified exponentially. For example joy becomes ecstasy, fear becomes terror, anger becomes rage, sadness becomes despair, etc. Or, as Caroline puts it:

** The Fourth Doctor tells Sarah Jane that he doesn't experience the same emotions that humans do. His incarnation in particular has some notably weird emotional responses to things, but whether or not this is true for the Doctor tends to depend on the writer. The novelisation of "Shada" played this for laughs by quickly having Romana's internal narration [[InformedAbility announce]] that both she and the Doctor were aliens and did not feel the same emotions as humans, followed up by her reeling off a list of extremely human emotional reasons why she and he were or weren't doing certain things.

For example, "Pyramids of Mars" had him explain his apathy towards a man's death as being due to being inhuman, but the story had started with a scene of the Doctor sulking about how he's a Time Lord that was [[PlayedForLaughs played for midlife crisis laughs]], suggesting it may well be a pretentious affectation.

* Cultural example - the trolls in ''{{Homestuck}}'' have a different perception of romance to humans, dividing it into four different kinds, with two of them sexual and two of them platonic; and consider true hate as erotic and stable an emotion as they consider true love. For the most part, the feelings themselves aren't that alien - what's alien is that trolls embark upon, say, negotiating between two people in a destructive romance with the same ferocity that we fall in love with people. In this case, it's BlueAndOrangeMorality, and the trolls are simply different from humans - not better, and not worse.
