** Also there's a high tendency for Ash's more powerful Pokemon to be bipedal and thus more human like. While he does have other monsters who have decent levels of competency, none have ever been his regional ace. Just compare Torterra and Infernape's battling records.

** Indeed, even the aliens use the word "humanoid".

* In BillAndTedsBogusJourney, Death rolls his eyes when Bill & Ted assume that the greatest scientist in the universe must be human. However it wasn't such a bad assumption when it turns out that Station is the only (two) non human in Heaven!

People prefer characters they can relate to. This is why most fictional characters are ''H. sapiens'' instead of, say, ''[[TyrannosaurusRex T. rex]]'' or ''[[Manga/{{Moyashimon}} A. oryzae]]''. The inherent human quality of [[RuleOfEmpathy relating to those like us and whom we can understand]] is also why ''all'' characters we connect and sympathize with, [[SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism human or not]], have at least some human qualities and [[BizarreAlienPsychology psychological characteristics]], or are at least [[CompanionCube perceived by us to have them]] [[note]]In fact human attributes in literature extends far beyond how stories characterize characters. How we describe everything in our world, and by extension fictional worlds, is pervaded by human-relatable concepts and allusions. Literature would read like a bizarre or cold technical paper without this human touch[[/note]].

*In ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'', the metafiction and novels are overwhelmingly human-focused. It is stated multiple times in setting census data that humans are the most common race, despite Orks both maturing early and [[MassiveNumberedSiblings tending to have many children for cultural reasons]]. Taken to extremes with sourcebook art, where humans are nearly always featured, elves are a close second, trolls are very rarely seen, and orks even less so. Dwarves get it particularly bad, with almost no dwarf art existing ''anywhere'' outside of rulebooks with sections pertaining to dwarves. Mildly subverted during the 2nd edition run where the overarching plot had an incredible case of OurElvesAreBetter and nearly always pertained in some regard to immortal elves.
