* In the ''Literature/{{Uplift}}'' series, a handful of alien races find humanity humorous and/or charming, such as the Kanten, the Tymbrini, and the Synthians. (Most other extraterrestrials are indifferent to humanity at the ''very'' best and, at worst, fighting each other over the opportunity to be the ones to exterminate humankind.) A separate example comes with humanity's fellow settlers on the refugee planet Jijo, where the other races come to appreciate the culture and skills humanity brought with them, which differs to varying degrees from the respective races' off-Jijo counterparts.

* [[AncientAstronauts The ancient Morrigi Empire]] in ''VideoGame/SwordOfTheStars'' regularly visited the Earth (and the homeworlds of the Tarka and Hivers) for the purposes of cultural exchange (basically, trading art). According to the fluff, Morrigi see alien-made art and cultural impulses as status symbols, and possessing something as exotic as a human-made bronze age axe or a piece of ancient meso-american poetry may have made a Morrigi male very attractive to the opposite sex.

* ''Anime/FutureCardBuddyfight'' has the Third Omni Water Lord, Miserea, who was so intrigued by humanity that he lived numerous lifetimes as one [[TimeAbyss over the centuries]] after the [[TheChosenMany Omni Lords]] were stranded on Earth, assuming the identity of [[spoiler:Kiri Hyoryu]] every time.

* Some of the Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' have a certain fascination with humans, but none more so than Rose Quartz. While initially seeing them as little more than cute animals, her relationship with Greg led to a much deeper love and understanding, to the point where she chose to have a child with him [[DeathByChildbirth at the cost of her physical form]]. Amethyst isn't quite so enamored, but she does have a soft spot for cheesy sitcoms and human food ([[TheNeedless even though she doesn't need it]] [[ExtremeOmnivore and it may not actually BE food]]). [[spoiler:Peridot also grows begrudgingly fascinated by human culture while working to save the Earth (but mostly herself) from the Cluster.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', even though humans are treated with suspicion among the monsters of the Underground, Alphys is a huge anime geek. [[spoiler:Undyne too, to an even greater extreme in fact.]]

* The Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho'' (old and new versions both) loves humanity and is fascinated by it far beyond his general fascination with other species and the universe in general. Most of his companions are humans, and he's constantly begging them to come travel with him not just in space, but in time, so that they can look at humans throughout their whole history. In fact, Earth is sort of an informal protectorate of the Doctor's: in the new series' fifth season premiere "The Eleventh Hour," he faces down an attacking alien ship while asking them to check their databanks to see whether this planet is defended. When they do, and see just ''who'' it's defended by, they hightail it out of there immediately.

** {{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.
