* Creator/LarryNiven's [[Literature/KnownSpace Protectors]] are transformed humans who've lost their gonads and gained enhanced intelligence. They put as much thought into protecting their groins as you do into protecting your armpits, and largely for the same reasons in addition to their skin already having hardened into a kind of biological armor. However, many of them see the value of carrying things, so they wear multi-pocketed vests.

* The aliens in ''Film/{{Signs}}'' are a hilariously FridgeLogic-filled example--they're [[TheReptillians reptillian looking aliens]] who appear to be naked throughout their appearances. What's their weakness? Water. For all intents and purposes, they should be burning alive just by standing there, but apparently they're only affected by water when it's in its liquid state...somehow...

* E. E. "Doc" Smith featured this in both the Lensman and Skylark universes, both with human (or humanoid) extraterrestrials and with definite non-humans (including flying lizards and even more grotesque forms). Whole planets were basically giant nudist colonies in space, with the inhabitants giving no more thought to their unclothed status than to the food they ate. Some races invert the trope.

** [[ZigZaggingTrope ZigZagged]] across the franchise with the Brutes. In ''[[VideoGame/{{Halo2}} Halo 2]]'', the standard uniform of the Brutes, from their infantry to their Chieftain, is a bandolier, a neck guard and ''maybe'' a metal helmet and some shoulder pads, and that's it (Though to be fair, it's not like they really ''need'' much else; their thick fur covers up most of the important bits and their naturally thick hides make them tougher that any [[SuperSoldier Spartan]] or [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Elite]] in full armor), while the Brutes in ''[[VideoGame/{{Halo3}} Halo 3]]'' all wear elaborate suits of PoweredArmor. It's explained in the ''Halo'' EU that there are two main "meta-clans" of Brutes; one is more savage and primitive and the other is smarter and more sophisticated, explaining the contrast between the two games. The Brutes in ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' split the difference; low-ranking ones go nude, high-ranking ones are decked out in full armor.

* Vasudan ''fighter pilots'' in ''VideoGame/{{Freespace}}'' are shown to wear armour-esque flight-suits just like their Terran counterparts, but otherwise every Vasudan shown wears not a speck of clothing. And [[NonHumansLackAttributes show nothing]].

* Babe in the second ''ComicBook/AtariForce'' series goes around wearing nothing. Justified as he's from a species that grow into mountains, and his "skin" has the consistency of granite.
