* 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).

* In ''{{Achron}}'' it is not stated outright, but can be inferred that [[spoiler:the Vecgir]] are in fact the decendants of humanity that [[spoiler:have been enslaved and modified by the Coremind in a loop that has been going on for millions of meta-years.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/BlakeEtMortimer'' features a story where LittleGreenMen are kidnapping people from various times and places over several centuries. They turn out to be humanity's descendants after nuclear war seriously messed up the planet. But where modern man has mastered the atom, they mastered time travel instead, and brought back Basam Damdu (the dictator from the very first story) so as to ensure that under the leader who came closest to world domination, humanity wouldn't rip itself apart.
