* ''FriskyDingo'': Killface, the VillainProtagonist, doesn't wear any clothes and few people seem to mind. His son Simon ''does'' wear clothes, making it all the more bizarre. Played with at the last moment of the series, when [[spoiler:Killface's family, dressed royally, comes to Earth on their spaceship. His mother gets mad at his lack of clothes.]]

* [[ZigZaggingTrope Varies by alien]] in the ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' but the Sectoids, Outsiders, Faceless and Codex are the most notable nudists. Justified in the case of chryssalids because [[AttackAnimal they're just living weapons]] The trope is averted by all other species.
** Zig-zigzagged in ''VideoGame/XCOM2:'' The berserk in 2 seem to be naked in comparison to the berserkers in 1, and the Andromedon is nude under it's pressure suit.

* Odo from ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' is ''technically'' naked most of the time, but since he's a shapeshifter it looks like he's wearing clothing and it's never really commented on. Of course, Odo's natural state is a gelatinous blob with no clearly defined organs, much less genitals.

** Possibly {{Justified}}: When Elfangor asks Loren and Chapman about clothes, Chapman explains they wear them so that they can live in less habitable parts of Earth. The idea puzzles Elfangor, implying Andalites just never bothered to colonize parts of their planet other than the grassy fields they're comfortable in.
* Lampshaded in one of the ''SectorGeneral'' novels, when Dr. Conway muses that he should be able to easily find the Earth Humans among the crowd at the space station's "beach" by the fact that only they would be ''wearing'' clothing.

* In Turtledove's ''WorldWar'' series of books, the Race never wears clothes. Their idea of proper attire is to cover themselves with body paint. Somewhat justified in that the planets they had visited before were very, very hot, like their home star. Example: their polar regions on Home (the Race's home world) are famous for going down to sixty degrees Fahrenheit. They are utterly unprepared for Earth's far chillier climate, and suffer greatly in their campaigns in the USSR and America during the winter months.

* Most WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Human-in-Equestria fanfics feature an inversion, even if it is never mentioned. The (alien) humans almost always wear clothes in a society that only ever wears clothing to formal events, and is otherwise naked 98% of the time.
