* ''Literature/WeKnewTheyWereComing'': Humanity gets some advance notice of the alien fleet, fires first and accidentally nuke the world. Surviving bombardment and nukes is as much a part of the story as eventually fighting back.

** The [[TheLegionsOfHell Burning Legion]] manages to be demonic invasion and this trope at the same time. Most demons in the ''Warcraft'' universe are born from the Twisting Nether, the series' demonic realm. However, a good number of the Legion's ranks, such as the Eredar, were originally races from various worlds who were corrupted with [[TheCorruption fel energy]] and then recruited by the demons. The Old Gods are a similar case, being horrific [[PlanetaryParasite Planetary Parasites]] created by extradimensional, [[CosmicHorrorStory Lovecraftian beings]] that were sent to infest Azeroth long ago.

** The Burning Legion looks like a demonic invasion, but it's really this. All of them are beings from other worlds who were united under Sargeras' banner. All of them are evil either because of [[TheCorruption fel energy]] or because, as is the case with the Nathrezim aka Dread Lords, [[AlwaysChaoticEvil that's just who they are]]. The Old Gods are a similar case, being horrific [[PlanetaryParasite Planetary Parasites]] that infested Azeroth long ago.

* In the early ScienceFiction story LesXipehuz (from 1888), the eponymous beings nearly wipe out humanity. It's not clear if they are indeed aliens, but they are strange enough to count as StarfishAliens and if they indeed are alien, it makes the story one of the first examples of this trope.
