* 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.

* 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.
