** {{Selfdemonstrating/Loki}} was a notable aversion with his disdain for anything mortal for long (except [[ReallyGetsAround women apparently]]). Until he died in the ''{{Comicbook/Siege}}'' and was [[Comicbook/JourneyIntoMystery reborn as a child]], when he not only became the most prominent example, but reached SenseFreak / PopCulturedBadass levels. He even [[Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard moved to Manhattan]].

** Other Franchise/StarTrek characters, such as Data and Odo, have elements of this: though they interact with humans as equals and have emotional ([[TheSpock or the nearest equivalent]]) connections as well as intellectual interest in humans, both also spend time observing and analyzing the people (human and alien alike) around them. Data even states in the pilot that he wants to ''become'' human, and Riker calls him [[LampshadeHanging Pinnochio]] in response. *** On one TNG episode, an alien entity caused itself to impregnate Troi as her own baby, to be born and live as one of us. He accelerated the process so that he did all this over a few weeks, rather than months or years. When the child realized his presence was endangering the ship, he died so he could revert to his [[EnergyBeings natural state]] and leave the ship, thus removing the risk, and thanking Troi for the experience as he left.

* Q from ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' -- a being of almost limitless power who spoke disparagingly of humanity (and put it [[HumanityOnTrial on trial]]), yet was also fascinated by humans, devising countless annoying and dangerous ways to explore our natures, and appearing as a human each time. The one time he was ''really'' turned human, as a punishment, he was not particularly happy about it, though. (But then, he was given the choice of which less-advanced alien to be turned into, he chose to be human.) ** Although it's hinted that it's not so much humanity he's intrigued by, but ''[[FoeYay Picard]]'' in general.

He tells various Companions that works by these authors endure for millennia after even the Companions' time.
