A humanoid is a character with a basically human body, though it may be different from humans in smaller details of its physical appearance. These are common types of character in science fiction and fantasy stories, where intelligent fictional races are typical.

In the case of furry characters, these are upright-walking (bipedal) characters that are basically humans with animal heads, fur, tails, and sometimes paws or claws. Within furry fandom the general convention is to call humanoid furry characters "anthro" or "morphic" (abbreviations of "anthropomorphic"). Non-humanoid furry characters--that is, those characters that walk on four legs and have animal bodies--are conversely referred to as "non-anthro" or "non-morphic".

For some furry fans, a humanoid form is required to call a character a "furry".
