The only character that I see really fits anyone is Midnight Lycanroc over Wolf, but even then, it’s going to look a bit weird.
I've come to the conclusion that my problem with Incineroar is not that it's another anthro or another starter, but because its moveset could be perfectly transferred to a human character. Other Pokemon would have issues getting their moveset transferred to a human, such as their body shape, the use of tail attacks, or how Lucario's legs work. Perhaps this is the real reason why it got chosen over other Alolan starters or actual Alolan mascots so late in development-their bodies are less human (without working like Kirby or Jigglypuff's) and thus would need more work.
I want to come back to this soon, since this is something I noticed when it came to Ultimate’s development and what it could’ve meant for Lycanroc.
