** 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.

* 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.

* ''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.

* ''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]].

** It turns out [[spoiler: Pink Diamond]] had the same fascination as Rose, although to a much darker degree, to the point of [[spoiler: keeping several in a zoo]].

** 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.

* In ''Film/DarkCity'', the whole reason [[AliensAreBastards the Strangers]] create the CityInABottle is to study humanity in order to [[PinocchioSyndrome become like it]] and reverse the [[DyingRace death of their species]].
-->'''Mr. Hand''': [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove I wanted to know what it was like Ö how you feel.]]
-->'''Murdoch''': You know how I was ''supposed'' to feel. That person isnít meónever was. You wanted to know [[HumansAreSpecial what it was about us that made us human]]. Well, you're not going to find it ''<<points at his head>>'' in here. You were looking in the wrong place.
