* In the book and film ''TheManWhoFellToEarth'', the being that calls itself Thomas Jerome Newton comes to Earth in order to help his own people, and in doing so embetters humanity as well by introducing alien technologies to Earth. In the end, [[spoiler: the government learns what he is and captures him. He ultimately cannot complete his mission, and the story ends with him as a disillusioned (and in the book, blinded) alcoholic who will live out his life on Earth]].

* A large part of the ''LorienLegacies'' series, and the ''Film/IAmNumberFour'' movie.
* Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''ArrivalsFromTheDark'' series has an alien character whose name roughly translates as Exile. He is a Proteid (or Metamorph), a species of [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Voluntary Shapeshifters]], whose [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is observing other races using their shapeshifting and PsychicPowers. Exile has a rare genetic disorder that only allows him to fully shapeshift once, at which point he is stuck in this form for life (and they're, effectively, immortal), only able to make small cosmetic alterations. He chooses to be an observer on Earth and arrives in the 13th century during the Mongol invasion. He has secretly observed humanity, only interfering occasionally to subtly boost progress. When the [[HumanAlien Faata]] arrive to conquer Earth, humanity is far from ready to take them on, still being stuck in the Solar System and lacking advanced weapons. Exile gives the humans the means to destroy the Faata ship in such a way that it can be studied and its technology reverse-engineered. Since then, Exile has taken a slightly more active role in helping humanity, although he has always remained in the shadows, revealing himself to a select few individuals and changing identities (and faces) every so often.

* ''SgtFrog'': ...well, that's kind of the ''idea''. There are other aliens on Earth besides the Keroro Platoon, though.

* All of the Crystal Gems from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' apply, though Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, and Rose had been on Earth for thousands of years and are familiar with the planet by the time the series starts. (though they don't seem to have spent much time with humans, so they're not familiar with certain human customs). Peridot, a recent arrival to Earth, struggles to understand things.

* ''MorkAndMindy'' once had a clever LampShadeHanging about this trope when, in one of the last seasons of the show, Mindy exclaimed in exasperation, "Oh, Mork, what Earth concept have you misunderstood ''this'' week?"

Tends to grow less and less plausible the longer a series lasts, as evidenced by the difficulty many viewers had with the idea that the ''ThirdRockFromTheSun'' aliens would not know about taxes after four years in the United States.
