** To clarify, "cattle mutilations" is a widely popular form of alien lore; its still being researched today with even government funded officers.

* In the first ''VideoGame/XCom'' game, ''UFO: Enemy Unknown'', some of the [=UFOs=] had medical bays containing mutilated cattle corpses. Turns out to be a rare example that has a non-comedic explanation; they're trying to work out what Earth livestock they can use for food after they conquer the planet.

* One mini-game in a ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'' game involves stopping aliens from kidnapping cattle. Later subverted in a stage where you have to defend a robot city from alien sheep in [=UFO=]s.

* ''VideoGame/ChoroQ HG 4'' has a track in a rural area. During night races on this track, it's possible to see this trope in action as a UFO beams up a cow.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', where aliens steal cattle but [[OutsideContextVillain no one knows what they are, so they call them "ghosts"]]. If you don't stop them, they abduct Romani, and when she returns she's ''[[DespairEventHorizon not]]'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2O7efpJMPhQ&feature=related the same.]]

* ''Literature/JoePickett'': This is one the theories put forward to explain the animal mutilations in ''Trophy Hunt''. Joe does not buy this theory for a moment.

* MOO!, a disturbing video by ''WebAnimation/{{Cyriak}}'', features cows being abducted for mutilation and converting their body parts into [[BodyHorror musical instruments]]. The aliens even clone them in test tubes until one turns into an incredibly freaky mutant which spawns more... Mutant cows which fight back with the aliens and team up with them later when another group of aliens invade Earth. Yeah... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=SG&hl=en-GB&v=f9iIgQN5uZE It has to be seen to be believed]].

* The bonus stages in ''Super VideoGame/SpaceInvaders 91'' are precisely this (shoot flying saucers to stop them stealing cows, or shoot the saucer but not the cow before they fly off the screen with it, bonus for number of cows saved). They still called it CattleMutilation, though.
