* The character of Harold from the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series. He's a mutated human, and one of the only characters to appear across multiple games. By ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', his mutation has progressed to the point where his form has merged with a tree, and he's rooted to the dirt. Surrounded by the only patch of green vegetation left in the entire Capital Wasteland, he is worshiped by a naturalist cult called the "Treeminders." Sadly, Harold has had enough of life, and wants to die. The Treeminders misinterpret his pleas for release as "tests of their faith," and do everything they can to nurture him and keep him safe. It's up to the player character to decide Harold's fate.

However, they recognize how wrong this is and consider themselves insane, while still being too attached to life to give it up. For the Auditors ''being human'' is this trope.
