* ''WebOriginal/TheSalvationWar'': ArchangelMichael. In ancient times, he thought he humans were these wimpy, subservient beings beneath his notice. But as humanity grew in both technology and in reason, he found himself fascinated and impressed with human goods and ingenuity. [[spoiler:It's also why he betrays and overthrows God in the end, since he knew it would only be a matter of time before humanity got to Heaven, and he wanted to protect the Angelic Host from destruction]].

* This seems to be something of a staple in ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm''. Thor is firmly convinced that HumansAreSpecial and that HumansAreWarriors (though after a chat with Dumbledore and on consideration of Tony Stark, he revises this to HumansAreSurvivors). Loki, being ReformedButNotTamed, seems to regard humans as somewhat primitive, but respects them and notes their achievements, their adaptability and combat skill (to the point of considering [[spoiler:the Winter Soldier]] to be the most dangerous assassin in the Nine Realms) and their rate of development. Asgardians, much like their comic counterparts, are generally curious about humanity. While some regard humans in general as backwards and primitive - which, since they were last regularly on Earth during TheDungAges, is perhaps unsurprising - they greatly admire the heroism of Captain America and the Avengers. And, apparently, are addicted to coffee, to the point where Loki wryly considers that Fury could extract diplomatic concessions by placing an embargo on coffee.
** Mar-Vell seems to be even fonder of humanity than usual - [[BoldlyComing though this may have something to do with the implied fact that he fell for]] [[LadyOfWar Peggy Carter]] - to the point of being established as humanity's 'Protector' and giving SHIELD the so-called 'Mar-Vell Files', a series of technological advancements that have largely been mothballed since Earth doesn't yet have the technological development to use them properly (and every attempt to do so has gone horribly wrong.

Added DiffLines:

** The Andalites also find humans, especially their food and sense of taste, to be absolutely astounding. Apparently, cinnamon buns are one of humanity's best inventions ever.

* ''VisualNovel/NewDanganronpaV3'' has Korekiyo Shinguuji, the Ultimate Anthropologist, who is deeply fascinated by humanity's different cultures, traditions, customs, legends, folklore, poetry, etc. He believes have all humans have unlimited beauty, even the parts of themselves that they consider ugly. He also wonders what kinds of beauty his fellow gifted inmates will display in their distressful situation.
--> ''Kuku...kukukuku...Humans are awesome.''

* Michael in ''Series/TheGoodPlace'', a celestial being [[spoiler:specifically, a demon]], finds humanity fascinating, and so has a bunch of tchotchkes like wax lips and a cheesegrater around for some reason. [[spoiler:In Season 2, the main characters declare him an "honorary human" and give him a box of random junk - car keys for him to lose, a stress ball with a corporate logo for him to contemplate throwing out and so on. He's genuinely touched.]]

** This trope has actually led to such improbable CharacterDevelopment as [[spoiler:the original Bogeyman]] evolving into the Tooth Fairy over thousands of years [[spoiler:because he had the epiphany that young children were so vulnerable, as using even a single tooth with a spell could make the child believe whatever the castors wants, someone should protect them.]]

* [[spoiler:Kaworu]] from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is characterized by this. [[spoiler:He's an angel, but he has a human appearance, likes classical music and heavily empathizes with Shinji, eventually taking the decision of making the ultimate sacrifice for him. It is this love of humanity which makes him so notable, since he's much better adjusted than anyone else in the series]]. One might say this is the source of his popularity.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Space 1889}}'' The cause of all the player characters troubles in [[spoiler: Beastmen of Mars]] is that a powerful being is scheming to lure humans to him simply so he can satisfy his curiosity about them.

** The Doctor has a deep affinity for human literature as well, and has enthusiastic conversations with Earth writers whenever he meets them, including CharlesDickens, Shakespeare, and Creator/AgathaChristie. He tells various Companions that works by these authors endure for millennia after even the Companions' time.
