* In the Ursula Vernon webcomic Inverted in ''Webcomic/{{Digger}}'', when the creepy figures with black wordbubbles speech bubbles serving a buried god are revealed to be ordinary living hyenas.hyenas. This causes some complication for the surface-dwelling hyenas, since it means that a tribe member who was killed by the god's servants needs to be properly avenged, which requires some unusual LoopholeAbuse to achieve.

* In the 90s ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' animated series, there were a few instances of MechaMooks looking human at first, and the heroes having to [[ThouShaltNotKill pull their punches]]... until one got hit a little too hard, [[RoboticReveal showed circuitry]]... and the heroes realized they could smash and bash at will. (Animated {{ComicBook/Wolverine}} ''loved'' discovering MechaMooks, it let him act more like his comic-book self who got to slice up ''real'' Mooks.)

* Inverted in an early Creator/HPLovecraft story, in which a man lost in a pitch-black cave hears something large and mysterious shuffling nearby and kills it with a rock. When his guide returns with a lantern to find him, they realize that the dying creature is a human being who'd been wandering in the cave for years, degenerating into an ape-like state.

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', it's revealed that [[spoiler:All the Cerberus troops you fight in the game have been given Reaper implants that make them resemble [[NightOfTheLivingMooks Husks]], just to set the tone for all the {{Mook Horror Show}}s you'll be inflicting upon them in the rest of the game]].



* ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard 3}}'' put's this trope to disturbing effect in Four's DLC story. She set's out on Gabriella to shot down some pirate ships, [[spoiler:only for it becoming clear upon arriving that it's ships full of elves who are desperately trying to flee. Gabriella calls out Four on this but simply get's the answer that since they are not human then all the more reason to shoot them down, since if they are not human then they have to be evil, and it is fine to kill evil people. All this ends up serving to make it perfectly clear just how [[TautologicalTemplar twisted Four's moral code]] really is.]]

* Technically, Malificent of ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'' was never human to begin with, she's more of a dark fairy of somesort. To any rate, she does have a human-like appearance. As such, [[spoiler: in order for Philip to kill her in the final battle, she has to be transformed into a giant, fire-breathing dragon to make it 'okay' for her to get stabbed.]]
** Though this is more of a case of OneWingedAngel, since she's [[spoiler:not really a dragon normally.]]

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.

* 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.
