* The Angels in ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' [[spoiler:(though the actual reason involves panspermia)]]. Though the reasoning for this is a bit sketchy. According to Ritsuko, the Angels are made of HardLight, and she found a strange sequence of HardLight in the Angel's tissues. Which for some reason she decided to compare to the human genome and came up with this trope.

* The entire premise of ABC's one-season-wonder ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0128419/ Prey]]'' was based on a killer strain of humanity with the same genetic variance from ''homo sapiens'' as exists between us and chimpanzees. Also, they were caused by global warming. The idea being that a localized acceleration of global warming accelerated human adaptation to that phenomenon among a particular population, who then spread out in secret among the rest of humanity. The show named [[ComicBook/XMen them]] ''[[ComicBook/{{Magneto}} Homo dominus]]''. For some reason, this new species not only has a higher level of intelligence but also completely lacks emotions beyond an irrational need to breaks necks of helpless monkeys to show their superiority.

* Genetically, mushrooms are closer relations to us than to plants. Also like us, fungi are heterotrophs, which means that they must 'eat' and can't make their own food like plants can. They also store energy as glycogen, as do animals and humans, as opposed to plants, which store it as starch. They also make their tissue out of chitin (the stuff in insect exoskeletons) rather than cellulose (the stuff in plants). In fact, fungi have more in common with sessile animals like sponges than they do with plants.

This is true in cooking, as well; mushrooms are often treated less as vegetables and more as meat (and fungi can be used in meat-substitutes, such as TVP or portobello-burgers.)

* We share 75% of our known human disease genes with the fruit fly. Which is [[AwesomeYetPractical awesome]], as we can experiment on them and not [[PlayingWithSyringes on us]]. A particularly weird bit of experimentation showed that injecting the gene product of the [=PAX6=] gene (which is found in humans and other animals and turns on eye development) into fruit flies caused eyes to develop (functioning like the insect's version, appropriately called ''eyeless''). The eye that developed was still an insect compound eye though, as the proteins that are expressed as a result of the gene being turned on are still proteins specific to forming an insect eye, not a mammal's eye. Which goes to show how important that other 25% is in terms of genetics.

* The androids from ''Anime/ArmitageIII'' are ranked according to the order they were created. "Firsts" are non-human robots, "Seconds" are androids, and the "Thirds" are so close to human they can get pregnant. And yes, they can reproduce with a human. The "Fourth" were modeled after plants and are arguable improved versions of natural plant life (such as trees that are capable of moving around.)

** In fact, humans in the ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' franchise have strong genetic similarities to most known sapient species in the Milky Way, thanks to Protoculture bio-engineering.
