* Inverted in ''{{Vandread}}''. The idea of ''harvesting body parts from humans'' is so repulsive to the main characters that they assume their foes cannot be human. [[spoiler:They ''are'' human, and from ''Earth'' to boot.]]

* Almost all of the human(oid) villains in ''VideoGame/BreathOfFire2'' reveal themselves to be some kinda of monster before they're fought. For example a Crooked arena organizer turns into a two headed humanoid wolf when challenged.

* Shortly after [[{{Marvel 2099}} Doom 2099]] has taken over the US, he learns that Avatarr, CEO of Alchemax and one of the main {{Big Bad}}s of the 2099 universe, is in fact an alien trying to rule the world via {{Mega Corp}}s. Of course, Doom only learned this after he [[EyeScream shot the guy's eye out.]]

* In ''TeenTitansTroubleInTokyo'', one of Brushogun's {{mook}}s is eventually revealed to just be a sentient glob of ink. Unusually for this trope, this isn't a valid excuse to kill him-- Robin gets arrested for the act anyway.

Unusually for this trope, this isn't a valid excuse to kill him-- Robin {{mook}}s. When he gets arrested for the act anyway.act, he tries to play this angle without success.


Added DiffLines:

** However, Robin's guilt is gone once it's discovered the creature was nothing but an animated drawing. Later, they are fighting the BigBad's apparently human army of mooks... once a hit reveals them to be drawings as well, the Titans say "no need to hold back", and don't.

* 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.
