* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''[='=]s [[HumanOutsideAlienInside trolls]]. They have [[FantasticCasteSystem a caste system divided between 12 normal blood colors]] (the "hemospectrum") which goes from short-lived, psychic rust-bloods all the way up to violent & dangerous bluebloods and sea-dweller violet bloods, with the fuchsia-blooded empress and her current heir at the top. They have an insect-like life cycle and are [[BizarreAlienReproduction born from a separate mother grub species which takes in genetic material carried by drones in pails]]. Genes from couples that feel the strongest love [[FoeYay or hate]] for each other tend to win out of the incestuous slurry, and troll gender is irrelevant to reproduction. And that doesn't even go into all the bizarre anatomical details hinted at by "auricular sponge clots," "bone bulge," "chitinous windhole," etc.

* The excreta of the bonnacon, a bovine creature of [[Myth/GreekMythology Greek myth]], caught fire upon contact with air; the beasts used that particular quirk in their anatomy as a weapon. And there's of course the hydra with its quite impressive regenerative physiology in regard the decapitations... And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

* ''Literature/TheStarchildTrilogy'': At the reefs of space, between the stars, life has evolved from primitive cells called fusorians, which actually fuse hydrogen and other elements to produce energy. They have evolved into a wide variety of odd creatures--most notably, the friendly spacelings and the terrifying living rockets known as pyropods (flame-foot).

* ''Franchise/DeadSpace'': The Necromorphs are HiveMind obeying alien bacteria that reanimate corpses into various BodyHorror DemonicSpiders. Destroying the head doesn't slow them down, and unloading ammo into their torso doesn't either. Only hacking off their limbs, tentacles and yellow tumor-like growths stops them from turning you into food or another corpse to reanimate.
** They can even convert dead ''body parts''. Say you have a chopped-off finger that gets infected by the necrovirus: It'll sprout tentacles and spines and attack you.
*** Dead Space's Necromorphs are basically Film/TheThing1982 {{IN SPACE}}. Though less paranoia about who is one, and more paranoia about when one is gonna pop out of air vent and tear you a few superfluous holes.

* While most of the aliens in {{Deadlock}} are pretty standard SpaceOpera, the Uva Mosk (think a three-way cross between a shrub, a human, and either an anteater or a turnip) definitely fall into this category.

* Demons like Sunny/Naruto in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3227295/1/Dancing-with-Demons Dancing with Demons]]'' have a digestive system that ends with their stomach where nutrients are simply absorbed directly into their body and they completely lack an excretory system. Anything they can't digest (basically anything that isn't meat) is simply vomited back up later. Furthermore, demons don't actually sleep; instead they go into "Rest" for six hours every week where they're technically conscious but nearly catatonic the entire time. Sunny finds it very unusual that humans need to sleep every night but can be awake and alert instantly, whereas demons need decades before they can throw off "Rest". Next, demons don't seem to breathe except to speak, allowing them to stay completely still for long periods of time. Lastly, any demon can consume the brain of a human to learn everything they know; they have to consume the entire brain to do so but that's because they don't know where memories are stored so eat everything to make sure.

* In the CthulhuMythos Mi-go look like crustaceans with batlike wings and a fleshy orb covered with small tentacles in place of a head, but biologically they are closer to fungi (and they're not really fungi either. It's just what they resemble the most from Earth organisms). The Elder Things are described as being something akin to a mix of vegetable and crinoid. And lets not even go to the [[EldritchAbomination Great Old Ones]] which are not really made out of matter in the strictest sense of the word.

* [[EldritchAbomination Bill Cipher]] from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' is a [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/gravityfalls/images/e/ea/S1e19_bill_snap.png/revision/latest?cb=20130905173319 triangle]] with one large eye, tiny black limbs, and no other visible bodily features. This means he doesn't have a mouth, right? Well...[[https://41.media.tumblr.com/0fb0fd0e17b685e589588544bc0a50a0/tumblr_o5frd1yQXe1rbzbl9o1_1280.png not exactly.]]
