This phrase actually shows up in comics a fair amount used by villains against heroes who are not technically human. Of course, from the reader's perspective they always fall on our side of WhatMeasureIsANonHuman, so it just makes it seem like sadism for being willing to torture a sapient being.

If your hero is the one shocked by their ''own'' non-human status, they might have just seen the TomatoInTheMirror.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Wolfenstein}}'', the evil General Zetta appears to have the ability to shoot magical balls of energy out of his hands and blocks bullets with his mind. Turn on your spectral vision, though, and you see he's really a giant slug monster; apparently being exposed to the Black Sun dimension turned him into a monster.

* ''{{Smallville}}'' tries to resolve ThouShaltNotKill with Clark [[spoiler:destroying Brainiac]] by invoking this trope. It's just [[spoiler:a machine]] after all, despite all the characterization and its struggle to survive, right? Nicely accounts for Superman's irrational commitment to the idea that machines are never people, though.

* Oogie Boogie from ''WesterAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' dies shortly after TheReveal that he's only a big colony of bugs ''pretending'' to be a person. With slight WhatMeasureIsANonHuman issues, though, since those seem to be talking bugs anyway.

* Almost all of the human(oid) villains in 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.

* In the second movie of ''Manga/ArpeggioOfBlueSteel Cadenza DC'', one of {{The Reveal}}s is that [[spoiler:the "Shouzou Chihaya" with Musashi is not actually the real Shouzou, who had been killed a long time ago, but merely a nanomaterial-made puppet with no will of its own.]]

* The ''PowerpuffGirls'' 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.

[[folder:Comics]] * One of the old ''JohnnyTurbo'' comics ends with this revelation against the strawman "Feka" corporation. Actually somewhat necessary to inflame the reader and [[DisproportionateRetribution justify Johnny Turbo's excessive violence]], since the only crime Feka commits during the comics is doling out inaccurate information about video game systems. And making little kids cry by doing so. ** Amusingly, the RoboticReveal only comes about ''because'' of said excessive violence, making it utterly ineffective as a justification.
