* However, ChouSeiKantaiSazerX, an indirect sequel to Gransazer, heavily averts this trope by having some of the major characters being aliens played by PeopleInRubberSuits. These major characters all survive. On the flipside, most of the human looking villains unceremoniously die, one of them being a victim to having [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlived her usefulness]] to the BigBad.

** In season six, we find out that all these supernatural creatures [[spoiler:are created by the children of one Mother and tend toward AlwaysChaoticEvil, especially when she's around.]] In season seven, we see that it's still possible for at least one monster to choose not to give in to TheDarkSide most of the time. Every time a monster or witch doesn't act evil, though, it never seems to last--resulting in the [[TheHunter Hunters']] [[VigilanteMan position]] making more sense.

** ''UltramanCosmos'' tamed the ''monsters'', in the ultimate subversion. However, many were killed by [[BigBad Chaos]].

* ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' explores the question in an episode which reveals that most of the mythological monsters Hercules killed during the first season were, at one point, just as sentient and emotionally complex as anyone else. Though it's played for comedy at first, as Hercules learns all this from their bumbling GentleGiant father, it comes to a dramatic head when he finds out that Hercules has killed them all: the ensuing fight's only resolved when a regretful Hercules (now realizing that he'd unfairly dismissed them as mindless monsters) convinces him that there really wasn't any other option, since BigBad Hera had brainwashed them into becoming her evil minions.

* ''{{Series/Westworld}}'': The androids are used as something to kill or have sex with (whether consensual or not within the storyline) by many guests. Some who begin to malfunction eventually realize what happens to them, and want revenge.

** When Willow goes dark and on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against Warren after he shoots Buffy and Tara, killing the former, Buffy is literally the ''only'' one of the Scoobies who wants Warren to face human justice for his crimes, while Xander and Dawn are so disgusted and pissed that they openly support Willow's intent to kill; after she succeeds, even Buffy reluctantly admits that Warren ''may'' have deserved to die. Nonetheless, the Scoobies all rally to defend Warren's ex-cohorts, who Willow is [[MisplacedRetribution now targeting]], because they had done nothing to deserve death.

** This is even inverted at one point: an Unas named Chakka captures Daniel on a hunt as part of a rite of passage in his tribe, but by the end is arguing with his people that Daniel is an intelligent being, not an animal, and thus should not be ritually killed.

** This issue is also addressed with the Unas in a number of episodes. Their body language unfortunately comes across to humans as somewhat aggressive, so they can seem quite menacing, but Daniel learns how to communicate with them a bit and finds that most Unas are really just peaceful people who are, at worst, rather suspicious of outsides to their tribes. He gets rather peeved when other people treat them like animals.
