* ''GingaNagareboshiGin''/''Silver Fang'' and its sequel ''Anime/GingaDensetsuWeed'' start out as typical [[AboyAndHisX A Boy And His Dog]] shows... but they quickly become more about the lives (and deaths; lots of deaths) of non-anthropomorphic dogs.

* In ''{{Simoun}}'', the Daikuurikans might look human, both psychologically and physiologically, but they [[HumanOutsideAlienInside sure aren't human any more, truly]]. The story simply could not work with human characters.

* M.C.A. Hogarth's ''Literature/TalesOfTheJokka'' stories are about a three-gendered alien race that have two chances to change sex in puberty, and are prone to complete IdentityAmnesia when they suffer severe trauma. Identity issues that are extremely rare or nigh-nonexistent in humans are commonplace to them, to say nothing of how complicated relationships get with them [[note]]Because childbirth usually inflicts the mind death on the mother homoromantic relationships are the norm with females typically treated as little better than breeding stock. However there are many exceptions in the stories, most often involving one of the sterile neuters who aren't supposed to have any sex drive.[[/note]].

* ''[[TheSecretOfNIMH Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh]]'' is a borderline case, as the eponymous rats think and act like humans due to their experiment-enhanced intelligence. Nicodemus's account of his life before the laboratory, however, shows they didn't always think that way, and Jeremy (a crow) and Mrs. Frisby (a field mouse) are normal animals with only the vaguest comprehension of human or rat technology.
