* The titular Manga/{{Inuyashiki}} is augmented with advanced technology thanks to aliens (just like Shishigami), but unlike [[TranshumanTreachery Shishigami]], Inuyashiki uses his newfound powers to help those in need, and his actions of kindness [[GoodFeelsGood bring joy to him]], making him feel human.

* In ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', Night Elf warlock Illidan Stormrage seeks demonic powers to prove himself to his skeptical brother and sister-in-law and ultimately fights against the genocidal undead Scourge. By the time of ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' [[TranshumanTreachery he's turned evil]].

Added DiffLines:

** After coming BackFromTheDead it's revealed that his plans were ''always'' to fight the Burning Legion and that any 'evilness' on his part up to the point of his death was him being an UnscrupulousHero believing the GodzillaThreshold was in effect.. and being ''really bad'' at explaining his actions to those who didn't believe it. By the point of his resurrection, the GodzillaThreshold truly is in effect, and so despite being more demon than elf and, you know, dying at the hands of the people who now resurrected him, he is still resolutely focused on the big picture: Demons bad; KillEmAll.

* Adam Jensen in [[Fanfic/MassEffectHumanRevolution Mass Effect: Human Revolution]] is this trope even more than he was in [[VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution [=Deus Ex: Human Revolution=]]], to the point where Hein means to use him to force humanity as a whole into a HeelFaceTurn
** "I'm going to turn Jensen into the most powerful human being in the Galaxy. I'm going to make the rest of mankind turn green with envy and stew in their jealousy as Jensen comes to their rescue, again and again and again, and go mad when he fails to turn into the monster they all expect him to become.

* ''TabletopGame/SirenTheDrowning:'' The Current of Lethe is a rare ''villainous'' example of this trope. The Hippocampi are those Sirens who chose Civilization over Nature, believing that the Earth is mankind's to do with as they wish without limits or responsibilities. Notably, they view their less pro-human kin as no more than animals, to the point of being willing to ''eat'' non-Hippocampi for the life-prolonging properties of their flesh.

** The Tevinter of course consider themselves to be Pro Human. It's just that their interpretation of the Chant of Light's decree that "magic is meant to serve man not rule over him" is that the Magisters are ''duty-bound'' to rule over others responsibly. The Magisters who aren't just in it for themselves genuinely seem to believe that they are serving mankind's best interests as Magisters.


* [[BlobMonster Rimuru Tempest]] in ''LightNovel/ThatTimeIGotReincarnatedAsASlime'' makes the first rule of the monsters living and serving him be to never attack humans, though he is willing to let self-defense slide by.

* [[BlobMonster Rimuru Tempest]] in ''LightNovel/ThatTimeIGotReincarnatedAsASlime'' makes ''LightNovel/ThatTimeIGotReincarnatedAsASlime'', as the name suggests, WasOnceAMan but died and was reincarnated into a fantasy world as a powerful non-humanoid monster. Although he has so far hidden himself from humans out of concern that they might attack him on sight, when he finds himself the ruler of a tribe of goblins, the first rule of the monsters living and serving him be he establishes is to never attack humans, though he is willing to let self-defense slide by.


* David Bowman in ''Literature/TwoThousandTenTheYearWeMakeContact''. Transformed into a demigod by the Monolith, one of his first acts after awakening in his new form is to say goodbye to his wife and mother, as well as sending a warning to the crew of the ''Discovery'' for them to evacuate the area around Jupiter immediately before the Monoliths turn it into a star.

* The Bowman's Robots from ''{{Freefall}}'' arguably fit into this trope as a whole. Despite being designed as expendable labor, and the evident fact that no ammount of hard-coded safeguards can stand up to the full sapience they (accidentally) wound up with, they still want nothing more than to be of use to humanity. One (minority) faction even believes that the best way they can do so is by wiping themselves out wholesale, not just to ensure that they ''never'' become a threat to humanity, but also because the absence of adversity humanity would be stranded in, surrounded by millions upon millions of eager-to-serve robots capable of independent thought and action, would sap mankind of any philosophical impetus to continue pushing the boundaries of the cosmos - essentially rendering humans 'obsolete' amongst the hardier, faster-replicating robots, no matter how benevolent they may be.

* [[OurVampiresAreDifferent The Brotherhood]] is presented this way in ''Film/PerfectCreature''. They are an [[OneGenderRace all-male]] order of [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire vampire monks]] that are perceived as superior to humans in every way (stronger, faster, smarter and long-lived) therefore closer to God, but are nominally sworn to guide and protect them and have managed to live in peace and prosperity with humans for centuries, surviving on willingly donated blood by church goers, and they consider abhorrent to drink directly from the body. [[spoiler: However, its revealed that they are corrupt in many ways, such as subtly keeping mankind dependent on their rule by outlawing scientific research, and being indirectly responsible for the main villain's actions by practicing it in secret: in a effort to produce more vampires after no new ones being born in decades, they commission the BigBad to perform experiments on the virus that ends up infecting him and driving him insane]].

* The ''[[Franchise/GodEater God Eater]]'' series features this trope more subtly in the form of the titular God Eaters. In order to use their God Arcs and defend humanity, they need to be injected with Oracle Cells that effectively turn them part Aragami. Otherwise, they would not only lack the strength and endurance needed to fight said Aragami, but would also literally be eaten alive by their own weapons. The use of a [[FantasticDrug powerful drug called Bias Factor]] is the only thing keeping them from transforming fully into the same monsters they fight.
