Exceptions (cases where profoundly alien beings are used as viewpoint characters. However, they tend to be limited in scope, since the nature of the protagonist usually takes center stage, and limits any plot elements that don't involve exploring how a hyper-intelligent tentacled crocodile would think. A common plot uses the Humans Through Alien Eyes trope; evidently we can't relate to strange beings unless we're involved. AAAAAAAAAAAAAHH, Floating parentheses!!!!

Alright, I see several listings claiming "aversions". How does that work? Do they know the writers of these works AREN'T human? Merely having non-human main characters doesn't avert a trope about the species of the writer.
