  • The whole plot of Miamaska, as Amity and Guere are stuck there.

There has been mention of other humans living within the Metals Clan.
  • Chitra follows the standard isekai plotline — the protagonist, an average 21st century high school girl, is run down by a speeding truck, and a god offers her a second chance at life in a fantasy world. She'll have to complete quests, gain power, and utilize RPG mechanics to level up her skills. Not to mention the harem of beautiful men she can acquire to help her on her journey, which she gains by using the god's exclusive gacha system to summon powerful pretty-boy allies.
    Phobinus, the God of Beauty: The reason why I'm here is to give you a new opportunity — The chance to live a second life! Of course it's not for free. You'll have to complete tasks given by me in your new life.
  • The story of Star Trip follows modern-day human Jas on a journey around the galaxy after she's taken by a mysterious alien named Khut.

  • Parodied in Nerf NOW!!: Victoire is set up to be the protagonist of an isekai with a typical opening of running late to her job and about to be hit by a truck...only for the truck to be hit by a bigger truck. This ends up making the truck the protagonist trapped in another world.

  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon fancomic PMD: Gleaming Hearts has Jake, a semi-amnesiac human-turned-Riolu who appears to have been brought to the Pokemon-populated world by a Diancie whose power was about to be stolen by a crooked Slowking and used to spread The Corruption. Instead she imbued half her power in Jake, including the ability to cleanse the corrupted crystals.
