* The White Witch from ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' is actually [[OurGeniesAreDifferent half Jinn]] and [[OurGiantsAreBigger half Giant]].
** In ''The Silver Chair'', the Green Witch turns into a giant snake, at which point Rilian believes it's all right to kill her. Though this isn't just because she's no longer human, but because she's no longer a human woman; Rilian WouldntHitAGirl.

* In ''{{Hellsing}}'', [[spoiler:it turns out that the Major is a full-conversion cyborg. Subverted in that he still claims humanity because he has a human brain, and that they would be perfectly willing to kill him if he were human anyway.]]

When someone denies the humanity of genuinely human enemies in order to justify violence or mistreatment against them, it's {{dehumanization}} instead; the closeness of this trope to that one sometimes leads to UnfortunateImplications.



Compare JustAMachine, which deals with this trope specifically for robots. Contrast TheManBehindTheMonsters, where everyone ''but'' the leader is a non-human. When someone denies the humanity of genuinely human enemies in order to justify violence or mistreatment against them, it's {{dehumanization}} instead.

* In Manga/{{Naruto}}, this is the opinion many people have in regards to jinchuuriki, and people doing so is a serious BerserkButton for the titular Naruto.
** When Naruto powers his way into the 4th Ninja War, he's told that the enemy army consists of plant-monsters and undead ninja. His response is basically, "Good! Now I don't have to hold back!" In this case, it's more a matter of "The enemy won't die so I can beat on them with impunity."

* In ''{{Bionicle}}'', Kiina and Ackar are reluctant to kill the seemingly-humanoid Rahkshi. However, after one attacks Kiina, Ackar decapitates it and its [[WetwareCPU Kraata]] falls out, revealing that "They're just slugs in armour". Our heroes have no problem hacking them to pieces after that.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' ostensibly-human enemy Roach Coach was dropped from a massive height, provoking a scared response about how its not ok for them to kill humans, then he's revealed to be an intelligent roach manning a human robot. Whom they decide to keep in a jar.

* ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'': "Holy smoke, he's a toon!" Normal toons aren't evil, but the reveal that the villain is one as well makes him both inhuman and much scarier in hindsight. He has been gleefully Dipping his own kind, and actually invented the chemical mixture that rendered his essentially-indestructible fellows vulnerable. Meaning this makes him even ''more'' of a monster than had he been human.\\
