* In the H-manga ''Dulce Report'', the aliens, codenamed "Angels", have been interacting with humanity for over six thousand years in order to create Human-Angel hybrids for an unknown reason. The fact that much of the lore includes real-life conspiracies such as the Dulce Air Force Base and even Alburquian businessman Paul Bennewitz was used, though changed into a British geneticist to fit the story, is what makes the story a great PornWithPlot manga.

* In ''Series/AgentsOfShield'', as established in the rest of the MCU, Earth has been visited many times by aliens in ancient times, with two cases being relevant to the plot of the show:
** The Asgardians, who were considered gods and left some of their technology lying around.
** The Kree visited the planet and carried out experiments to [[spoiler:genetically engineer humans into weapons for their war]].
** Enoch states that he's been observing humanity for 32,000 years

** Actually Däniken ripped off a lot of people. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Charroux Robert Charroux]], [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Morning_of_the_Magicians Louis Pauwels & Jacques Bergier]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brinsley_Le_Poer_Trench,_8th_Earl_of_Clancarty Brinsley Le Poer Trench]] all wrote pre-''Chariots of the Gods?'' books touting the theory that Däniken pretty clearly borrowed from as well.

* [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Before Däniken there was]] Italian [[https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Peter_Kolosimo Peter Kolosimo]] (19221984), whose best-selling books such as ''Terra senza tempo'' ("Timeless Earth") were the first ones to present these kinds of ideas. In fact, Kolosimo was ''the'' major influencer of Däniken (read: [[{{Plagiarism}} Däniken ripped off Kolosimo]]). He was also a DirtyCommunist who quoted heavily from Soviet "authorities" - which plays into who heavily promoted this in the first place. After his death, he went into obscurity and his books are no longer published, but due to Däniken and later Tsoukalos his ideas will be in pop culture and pseudoscience/conspiracy-circle currency for a long, long time.

Proponents of this theory also espouse that ancient construction projects like the pyramids and Stonehenge are clearly too advanced and [[RealityIsUnrealistic a little too fantastic]] for ancient man to have constructed without help from a more advanced civilization. Or that since there are pyramids in the Americas, Egypt, and China... you guessed it, they all got their idea from aliens. Other popular sites include the [[EenieMeenieMinyMoai Moai of Easter Island]] and the Nazca Lines. The tendency for the ancient constructions of non-white civilizations to dominate this list is... [[UnfortunateImplications unfortunate]].

* ''Series/EarthFinalConflict'' has Ma'el, a Taelon scientist, who traveled to Earth thousands of years ago in order to determine if humans could be turned into soldiers to be used in the Taelon-Jaridian War. However, once here, Ma'el grew fond of humanity and changed his mind, sending a warning message to the other Taelons, telling them not to come. As revealed in the episode, where Liam and Augur end up in a parallel world, Ma'el also encouraged humans to urbanize, believing that it was the only way for humanity to develop the necessary industrial and scientific infrastructure necessary to resist his people, should they ignore his warning and come anyway. In a last-ditch effort, he befriended a Roman man and tasked him with acting as his scout through the ages, sleeping in the stasis pod aboard Ma'el's buried ship, periodically waking up in order to assess the state of humanity and look for any alien presence. Should the Taelons ever arrive and prove to be harmful to humanity, the Roman is to activate the ship's final protocol, causing it to lift off and accelerate on a [[RammingAlwaysWorks collision course]] with the Taelon mothership. In the above-mentioned parallel world, Ma'el never comes to Earth, and his previously-militant attitude ends up influencing the modern-day Taelons to outright invade Earth instead of attempting to subvert humanity covertly. Meanwhile, that world's humanity never urbanized and lives in scattered hamlets, although they have somehow managed to develop advanced weaponry due to the constant fighting between the settlements.

** Season 5 also reveals that prehistoric humanity used to be enslaved and kept as food by the [[AbusivePrecursors Atavus]], the common ancestors of the Taelons and the Jaridians. It's speculated that their leader Howlyn was so impressed with Renee (when she used a time-traveling ID portal to end up in the past) that he used the dead body of a Medieval monk to enhance the DNA of primitive cavemen to speed up their evolution into ''Homo sapiens sapiens'' (i.e. modern humans). Then a meteor storm forced the Atavus into slumber, allowing humanity to rise.
