* In ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'', the player's scientists can perform these. Aside from giving you points when it's finished, it sometimes gives you information about what that particular alien is vulnerable to. However, expect lots of inaccuracies (for example, Reapers are said to have flammable hides but incendiary damage is really buggy in the game). In [[VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown the 2012 reboot]] the autopsies instead give you things such as new technologies.

* In the ''Taken'' miniseries, autopsies of the alien visitors are alluded to on several occasions. In a twist to the usual, one scene involves a team of doctors conducting brain surgery on a man infected with an alien implant. What happens next might be considered [[Main/NightmareFuel rather disturbing]].

* "Passage of Earth", a short story by Creator/MichaelSwanwick. A coroner is given a large alien worm-like creature to dissect after a spaceship crashlands on Earth, killing its crew of hundreds of worms. [[spoiler:From his examination he speculates that the alien, which is blind, examines its surrounding mostly via taste. Halfway through the autopsy he has an irresistable compulsion to eat part of the worm whereupon it takes him over; he beats to death his ex-wife who brought him the corpse and drives out into the desert while reliving this and other unpleasant memories from his life. Belatedly he realises that he's the one being autopsied - out in the desert was another spaceship whose crew consumed him, but this all happened years before and a worm is sampling his memories as it digests him over the eons between star systems.]]
