Is This Tropable?, Up for Grabs

Pretty much ubiquitous in any work taking place in a universe separate from our own - despite the fact that the work takes place on different planet, a species will have evolved to be exactly like us. Mainly because Most Writers Are Human themselves. Distinct from Human Aliens because they don't exist alongside Earth humans. Also applies to dogs, horses, trees, and many other organisms.

Seeing as how this is basically excepted in nearly every fantasy world ever constructed, list aversions and their like only.

Examples

Web Comics
  • Mostly averted in Humans and Other Myths webcomic.
  • Averted in Accidentally Centaurs webcomics as any humans sent there automatically turns into other species.
