comment Word for “animals, including humans”?
+1 for "beings". It fits fairly well for all the things, both real and fantasy, that OP mentioned, without really including anything else.

comment What kind of rhetorical strategy is it when someone points out a potential sticking point in his proposition before anyone can criticize it?
What kind of fallacy did the asker make here by assuming it's a fallacy, when it's only a strategy whose argument might contain a fallacy?
