** In the original version and some others, the Legion's financier, R.J. Brande, had his corporate headquarters on Earth and believed by most to be a native.
** While most world's have a single Legion member due to their powers being native abilities and Legion having a rule against power duplication, a disproportionate are from Earth since humans seem to have more power inducing accidents.

** In "The Trial of a Time Lord" season, it' pretty much revealed to whole reason for the trial was to prevent The Doctor from finding out that the Time Lord High Council had moved (yes moved) the Earth and renamed it Ravalox because someone managed to steal data from the Matrix and bring it to Earth.

* Like the various TV series, the Franchise/StarTrek films do this as well.
** ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'' - strange alien cloud that can destroy anything in its path is headed straight for Earth and turns out to be originally a space probe sent by NASA
** ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' - strange alien probe that can knock out a starship's power is headed straight for Earth because it hasn't received a call from whales for a couple hundred years.

* ''Series/TattooedTeenageAlienFightersFromBeverlyHills'': Earth is the nexus of a network of portals that would make universal domination a lot easier for Emperor Gorganus. It's established in the first episode of the series Gorganus won't explode Earth because the portal network would be destroyed as well.

If, against all odds, it's just next on the list for an alien menace that has conquered hundreds of worlds before it, Earth will more often than not be [[UndefeatableLittleVillage that elusive last]] planet they needed to make their conquest of the (region, galaxy, universe) complete. And almost ''every'' time, it's Earth where a resistance to the aliens' evil ways will finally succeed, [[JustForFun/HowToInvadeAnAlienPlanet no matter how improbable]].

* ''Series/RedDwarf'' also fits this trope to an almost absurd degree. The Earth is long since lost but every character is a human or robot and there are no alien species.

-->''Miles'': Old, romantic, historic Earth, the big blue marble itself. Miles had always expected to travel here someday, although not,
-->surely, under these conditions. Earth was still the largest, richest, most varied and populous planet in scattered humanity’s entire worm-hole nexus of explored space. Its dearth of good exit points in solar local space and governmental disunity left it militarily and strategically minor from the greater galactic point of view. But Earth still reigned, if it did not rule, culturally supreme. More war scarred than Barrayar, as technically advanced as Beta Colony, the end-point of all pilgrimages both religious and secular—in light of which, major embassies from every world that could afford one were collected here.

* The ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' series is absolutely riddled with this trope, as most of the games include [[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover quite a few series]] where this sort of thing is going on, all at once - so it's not unusual to have six or seven different alien species invading Earth at the same time.

Justified in the [[SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration OG series]] [[spoiler: Shu Shirakawa reveals in ''Second Original Generation" that his [[GravityMaster gravity warping]] HumongousMecha had, without his knowledge, been generating a Singularity (an alteration of space-time probability within the universe) which was causing these coincidences to occur more often. He cancels the effect at the same time he drops this bombshell, but acknowledges it's probably too late for it to change anything.]]

** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' continues this tradition, with Earth having stores of Dark Energon, sleeping warriors, and, at one point, visitation from Ancient Cybertronians. However, there is a rather [[{{Deconstruction}} dark]] [[JustifiedTrope justification]] for this: Earth is actually [[spoiler: [[GodOfEvil Unicron]]'s dormant body.]] It is also where the lost Iacon artifacts were ''all'' hidden.

Megatron eventually puts the conquest of Earth on equal priority with restoring Cybertron, believing that this is proof that the destinies of the two worlds have always been intertwined. To control one without controlling the other is to control nothing at all.
