* The Masari from ''UniverseAtWar: Earth Assault'' is a homage to this trope -- an ancient alien species that inspired most of the ancient civilizations, and ''also'' the ancient Atlanteans. They went into [[SealedGoodInACan stasis sleep]] eons ago before being awakened by the Earth being attacked by [[PlanetLooters the Hierarchy]].

* The ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' elves are aliens from a ''comet'', of all things, called Derris-Kharlan, that is apparently a source of mana. And somehow these aliens are cross-fertile with humans.
* The Cuotl in ''RiseOfLegends'' are a {{Mayincatec}} civilization which has been subjugated by aliens posing themselves as gods, who have given the humans impressive technology (that cannot be told apart from magic). However, game balance means that it's no more powerful than the SteamPunk and ClockPunk technology of the Vinci and the ArabianNightsDays magic of the Alin.

** In their first appearance near the end of season 1 - one of the first episodes where the show really [[JumpingTheShark started to Jump The Shark]] curtesy of ExecutiveMeddling - they're revealed to have been visiting Earth millions of years ago. Long before early hominids evolved, and they have no interest in humans. Instead focusing on the older intelligent species which existed back then, Dolphins.

Long ago, long before early hominids evolved, and evolved. At first they have no interest don't even recognize humans as intelligent and don't want to communicate with them. They are interested only in humans. Instead focusing on the older intelligent species that was around way back then and with which existed back then, they had interaction - Dolphins. So in fact they turn out to be Ancient Astronauts to the Dolphins long before Humans.

** ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' reveals that the protheans took a very hands-on approach to [[spoiler: the asari. Bring Javik to Thessia with you and he'll reveal that much of one of the older asari religions is based on their actions. They deflected meteor strikes, kept hostile races away, gave them gits of technology...Liara is staggered by the implications.]]

** When the evil but hot KGB Agent tried to have all this knowledge downloaded into her brain...it was too much for the human physique and she was incinerated in the process.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visoki_De%C4%8Dani Visoki Decani]], a 14th century Serbian monastery, contains an icon of the Crucifixion with what looks like [[http://www.srbinside.rs/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/freskevi.jpg two UFOs]]. Notable alien conspiracy theorists, like Erich von Däniken, have for decades considered this to be an evidence of UFO presence in medieval history. This "theory" was, of course, dismissed by the priests, who offered a more Biblical explanation of the painting.

* Probably the funniest and less serious example would be the Great Gazoo, a LittleGreenMan that befriends ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintsontes'', although only Fred and Barney can see him.

** Another episode mentions that once Earth belonged to the interstellar Arkanian Empire that build the {{Atlantis}} thousands of years in the past, which motivates an Arkanian fanatic trying to rebuild the Empire to take Atlantis out of the sea disregarding that it would cause a Tsunami.

* Another example is episode "The Secret of Easter Island" of the animated adaptation of ''ComicBook/BlakeAndMortimer''. Evil aliens from Markab visited Earth thousands of years in the past (specifically Easter Island) as part of their genocidal crusade against “inferior species”.

* ''Literature/TheLivesOfTao'' has this as the core of its premise: an ancient race of EnergyBeings crash landed on Earth millions of years ago [[PhlebotinumKilledTheDinosaurs(killing the dinosaurs and kick starting the ice ages in the process)]], symbiotically possessing various creatures to stay alive while gradually furthering the evolution of life until early humans came along and manipulating our development from there. Almost everything in Earth's history is the result of Quasing manipulation.
