* While she was an EnergyBeing ''possessing'' a human, and not transforming into one, the Phoenix Force in the ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' cartoon fits this trope to a T; after possessing Jean Gray to fulfill her duty to protect the M'Krann Crystal, the cosmic entity became duly aware of the human senses she now had access to, becoming addicted to them and opening herself up to be manipulated by an evil BDSM mutant group (no, seriously) and turning evil, herself. She was only stopped after Jean had been killed, cutting the Phoenix Force off from the mortal's senses and reverting her back to her normal self.

* ''{{Archipelago}}'': After Raven [[spoiler: finalizes his transformation into a human and gains the ability to eat,]] he starts a journal of everything he eats, detailing how much he likes it. He works through is meals quite slowly (Unless he's eating cake).

* Franchise/{{Batman}} used this to his advantage one time. With the BadFuture world about to be destroyed by Darkseid, and being observed and recorded for posterity by Metron, a literal god, Bats convinced him he needed to make himself mortal to completely record the human experience before it was wiped from existence. [[spoiler:When Metron did as suggested, Batman coldcocked him and stole his Mobius Chair to send Comicbook/{{Aquaman}}, TheFlash and GreenLantern to the past to save the day.]] Sucker.

*** Actually, in ''Martian Manhunter, Vol. 2, #24'', it became canon that for Martians, Oreos (or in this case [[LawyerFriendlyCameo Chocos]]) are addictive. FridgeLogic sets in when one considers ''why'' exactly it's processed cookies, rather than say, chocolate.

FridgeLogic sets in when one considers ''why'' exactly it's processed cookies, rather than say, chocolate. Though recent studies show that rats actually do develop an addiction to Oreo cookies not too different from a cocaine addiction. Perhaps that also applies to DC martians.

* In Creator/DianeDuane's ''YoungWizards'' series, it turns out that most aliens go nuts over the taste of [[EverythingsBetterWithChocolate chocolate]]. A single bar of highest-quality Earth chocolate can be [[SeriousBusiness used as a bribe of staggering size]] under the right circumstances.

* The boggarts in the ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' setting ''Lorwyn'' are "addicted to new sensations" and will do all sorts of strange and dangerous things just to discover what they feel like. There's even a card called [[http://ww2.wizards.com/Gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?name=Sensation%20Gorger Sensation Gorger]]. The goblin in the art has his eyes pried open, ear trumpets in both ears, a skunk across his nose, a frog in his mouth, and sharp sticks stuck in all eight of his fingers.

This often happens to nonhumans [[VoluntaryShapeshifting who can transform]], and who only rarely choose a humanlike form [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith just to hang out with others]]. It's even more especially true for ''[[StarfishAliens really ]]''[[StarfishAliens alien Aliens]] with BizarreAlienBiology, and even more so for [[EnergyBeings creatures who don't even normally have a physical form]]. This and SenseLossSadness are two of the big reasons why HumanityIsInfectious.

* Remember the Society of Sensation we mentioned earlier? They show up again as a joinable faction in ''PlanescapeTorment'', and what with [[PlayerCharacter The Nameless One]] being a scar-riddled amnesiac immortal, boy do they get a kick out of ''you''.

* Penny has a brief instance of this in ''FanFic/TheRWBYLoops''; during the first loop where she is biologically human, she quickly sets out to experience all that having human senses have to offer with the help of Ruby and Sun. Later loops downplay it to a degree, as she primarily seeks out artificial noses to install and, eventually, use her RobotGirl status to record the experience of being human.
