Compare TheBeautifulElite, which is this in terms of a social class rather than a race, though not necessarily to the point of seeming inhuman. MarySue[=s=] frequently belong to one of these.

* The Abh of ''LightNovel/CrestOfTheStars'' are all described as looking very beautiful. It's a by-product of the fact that they're all genetically engineered: if they can make themselves look beautiful, then why not? Interestingly, this means that in Abh culture, beauty isn't considered very important. Calling an Abh beautiful is like calling the sky blue: it's a fact, not a compliment. Therefore Abh generally strive to be seen as elegant, which requires certain behaviors rather than genetic traits.

* Fan works set in [[TolkiensLegendarium Middle-earth]] may downplay or exaggerate the beauty of the elves. ''FanFic/TheGamesOfTheGods'' downplays it: when Rachel covers her PointyEars, humans accept her as an uncommonly beautiful human. ''FanFic/HomeWithTheFairies'' exaggerates it: when Maddie first sees an elf, its "unnatural" and "inhuman" appearance overwhelms Maddie, who [[{{Fainting}} faints]], perhaps because she is a transplant from a world that has no elves.

* Selelvians from the ''StarTrekExpandedUniverse.'' Which makes sense because they're SpaceElves.

* In ''Literature/{{Watersong}}'', the sirens' curse grants them supernatural beauty. They are so inhumanly beautiful that they come off as eerie and unnatural.

* Most vampires (except the Black Court) in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' take on good looking forms, but the White Court vampires are an embodiment of VampiresAreSexGods meets Inhumanly Beautiful Race. Many of the [[TheFairFolk fae]] in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' also are described this way.

Both the Winter fae and the White Court use their smoldering sex appeal[[note]] if they could be any more smoldering they would literally be on fire[[/note]] to prey on humans; Summer fae are just as beautiful, but typically more wholesome.

** Interestingly, male veela are never mentioned though they presumably must exist; one important character, Fleur, is [[UnevenHybrid one-quarter veela]], so a human/veela pairing clearly dilutes the genes. WordOfGod says that Fleur later has a son who would be one-eighth veela; {{Fanon}} tends to make him into a PrettyBoy.

* In the world of ''ElfQuest'', most humans tend to feel this way about the elves (See image, above.) It sometimes provokes humans to extreme behavior, for good or evil.

* The [[OurElvesAreDifferent 'Eletians']] in the GreenRider series are often described as having an otherworldly beauty that somehow seems to bend light towards them, probably through their innate magic.
* The Melnibonéans from Creator/MichaelMoorcock's [[Literature/TheElricSaga Elric Saga]] are this. Most humans [[AlwaysChaoticEvil fortunately]] don't get to lay eyes on them very often, but Elric turns heads wherever he goes.
