* ''{{Exalted}}'' has its version of TheFairFolk - {{Humanoid Abomination}}s from outside reality that can imitate humanity better than actual humans can. Fair Folk Nobles start with a minimum of three in all their stats (on a scale where 2 is average), so it's literally impossible for them to have below-average looks. Their stats also naturally cap at 7, in a setting where 4 is the natural limit for normal people and 5 for ''demigods''[[note]]This can be broken by special abilities, which are also available for the fair ones.[[/note]]. And they also have access to various charms to enhance their beauty and persuasiveness up with {{glamour}}.

* ''Podatek'' [[labelnote:translation]]The Tax[[/labelnote]] by Milena Wójtowicz features, among all the FantasyKitchenSink it is, an [[NobleDemon exiled]] [[EvilIsSexy demon]] Jagienka, who unrepentantly [[DistractedByTheSexy causes traffic accidents]].
--> Humans, as a rule, aren't that perfectly beautiful. Jagienka was. She wasn't human, though.

* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' the Martian royal castes and their courtesans are consistently described as being incredibly beautiful by human standards, with the towering Royals often being described in terms of their other-worldliness. Note however, that concerning Martians they are far closer to TheBeautifulElite.

* Zigzagged with the Koltsoi race of aliens in ''Literature/FutureBoston'': facially, they're quite hideous, yet due to their limbs operating by hydraulic extension rather than joints, the way they ''move'' is so graceful that a drunken Koltsoi falling down a flight of stairs puts the best human ballet-dancer to shame.

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.
