** More precisely, the [[SpaceWhale Great Ones]] are so different as to be made of non-organic crystals and forcefields, but think like human beings; whereas the New Gods resembe impossibly perfect humans, but have lost all compassion for those not like themsleves to the point where they seem less human than the Great Ones. The ideology of the conflict is whether humanity should be defined by your mind or by your biology. This is why one faction is trying to alter the past into a meritocratic society, and the other into a caste-based eugenic society.

* In ''Anime/{{Macross}}'', [[spoiler: the Protoculture, and arguably the Zentradi, as the Protoculture were more or less advanced humans who created the Zentradi to fight for them. Didn't work so well.]]

Didn't work so well.Could be inverted, since the Protoculture either engineered or at least biologically altered humanity's ancestors, making humans the "Trans-Protoculture" aliens.]]

* The many races of Creator/MarvelComics' [[Franchise/{{Micronauts}} Microverse]] are all descended from a [[http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/earthswordinthestar.htm future humanity]] which fled through time, space and dimensions to escape a genocidal war.

* Lunarians from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' were humans that moved from earth to the moon in ancient times. They also have the most advanced technology in the series, live on the source of Gensokyo's magic, and include a pair of {{God Mode Sue}}s that systematically defeat many of the main characters.

In spite of this, they notably still possess [[HumansAreFlawed human minds and personalities]], and the [[WeHaveBecomeComplacent extended isolation from other human factions]] leads them facing repeated military defeats against their much less advanced Earth counterparts.

* ''The Literature/BelisariusSeries'' by DavidDrake and Eric Flint features in its backstory two opposing factions in a far-future war. One faction is made up of Transhuman Aliens, humans evolved or genetically engineered to live on alien worlds, some even evolving into gigantic {{Space Whale}}s. Others scuttle about on crab-like legs that are modified ribs. The opposing faction fancies themselves the original, pure-blood humans, and [[FantasticRacism wants to wipe out]] all the evolved and engineered subspecies of humanity. Of course, this far in the future, they aren't recognizably human any more, either.

* ''Literature/TheTimeMachine'' is an early example with the Morlocks and Eloi as future humans and neither presenting that pleasant an outcome for the species.

* ''Literature/TheTimeMachine'' is an early example with the Morlocks and Eloi as future humans (the result of respectively factory workers and privileged elites developing into separate species) and neither presenting that pleasant an outcome for the species.human race. The Morlocks are subterranean monsters with the intellect to operate machinery, the Eloi are beautiful creatures with low intelligence who live pampered lives. The latter is maintained by the former for food.

* An early ''DragonMagazine'' article for the ''TabletopGame/GammaWorld'' RPG (several editions ago, and [[{{Retcon}} no longer canonical]]) justified the unrealistic physical hardiness of its "pure strain humans" by revealing that they're descended from genetically-engineered superhumans. Untampered humans' descendants are all mutants; "pure strains" only ''think'' they're the original human type because they closely resemble the humans in ancient pictures.

* "Transhumanity" in ''EclipsePhase'' is ''mostly'' composed of humanity and its descendants, though except for flats, almost everyone is genetically enhanced to some degree and virtually immortal. It also includes uplifted animals and AIs though, who are not that different from humanity anymore (and can slip into each other's bodies).
