** 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.

* 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.
