** And the theme returns in the ''X-Com'' series' Main/SpiritualSuccessor, ''VideoGame/{{Xenonauts}}''. The game even comes up with a plausible new reason for the escalation. It turns out that the alien ships are not designed for atmospheric flight, much less {{Old-School Dogfight}}s, but the aliens are slowly modifying their craft with the smallest craft modified faster.

* The main plot in ''Film/WarCraft2016'' is alien invasion, [[RecucledInSpace Fantasy-style]]. The orcs come from another world, want to use the local population to bring the rest of their Horde to Azeroth, and then intend to (or at least Gul'dan intends to) magically terraform their new home in Draenor's image.

* The ''Literature/WorldWar'' series by Creator/HarryTurtledove: The aliens invade during UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo and this forces the warring sides to [[EnemyMine unite against them]]. Also, the aliens are deliberately given contemporary (at time of writing, i.e. 1994) levels of technology plus a little extra to allow them to travel between stars, rather than the usual insanely advanced aliens vs. present day humans. They are also really, [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks conservative]]. Like, they've been ruled by the same dynasty for [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale tens of thousands of years]] and are surprised that humans have advanced from the medieval era to the present in only a few hundred years, conservative.

* ''[[ArrivalsFromTheDark Invasion]]'' by Creator/MikhailAkhmanov: The novel details the arrival of a giant HumanAlien starship from another galactic arm in order to conquer and enslave humans, who only have a tiny fleet of ships with no shields, AntiMatter, or FTL capability. After the humans barely survive (thanks to [[spoiler:another alien]]), the following novels chronicle humanity using the leftover technology to build an interstellar empire (well, more of a [[TheFederation federation]] but with GunboatDiplomacy).

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'', your empire, or AI empires for that matter, can invade pre-FTL species through either an all-out assault or infiltration. The primitives can sometimes thwart the latter, the former, [[OrbitalBombardment not so much]].
