* ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle'' had the two bumbling aliens Gidney and Cloyd, although while innocent, [[UnwittingPawn they were naïve enough]] to think Mr. Big had good intentions for giant metal-eating mice.

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': A small group of innocent transdimensional alien tourists once visited a next-door universe. Too bad they chanced to visit ''Deadworld'', a dark dimension ruled by four undead psychopaths who think that all life is a crime...

* The aliens in the season one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'', aptly titled "Aliens," were a very friendly race, who only came to Earth because they received a false distress signal from the villain of the week, who then captured them and forced them to work for slave labor.

* Thomas Jerome Newton in ''TheManWhoFellToEarth'' makes his journey to our world to acqure the means to bring the rest of his people (numbering a few hundred) here before they die of thirst back home; they would then be able to blend in with humanity and become a positive influence upon it. Tragically, he gradually loses his innocence as he lives amongst humans...

* Creator/AlanDeanFoster[='=]s ''HumanxCommonwealth'' has a lot of alien races, so it stands to reason that some would be peaceful. However, this is taken to an extreme with the Ulru-Ujurrians, giant ursinoids who are nevertheless utterly innocent and devoid of malice. They eat, sleep, mate, and play games. Until Flinx shows up and starts teaching them the "game of civilization", at which point they turn out to be [[SuperIntelligence exponentially intelligent]] and rapidly assimilate all knowledge that the Commonwealth and [=AAnn=] societies have to offer. However, they remain utterly nonaggressive except when they or Flinx are threatened -- which is a good thing as by the end of the series their capabilities approach RealityWarper levels.

* Somewhat averted in ''RoadsidePicnic'' in the way that the alien visitors don't even take notice of the human population, and leave all manner of artifacts strewn about. What the human populace does with, and for, these artifacts, though. . .

* ''TheDukesOfHazzard'': The Visitor, in the episode "Strange Visitor to Hazzard," an episode clearly meant to mimick and play off the popularity of ''ETTheExtraTerrestrial''

* The pak'ma'ra from ''BabylonFive''. They may be unpleasant to be around, being scavangers and carrion eaters, and they are commonly described as "lazy, greedy and obnoxious", but they are pretty much the only race in the setting who were not once involved in some shady or immoral activity or acts of unprovoked violence, and the driving force of their species is curiosity and thirst for exploration. The pak'ma'ra were among the first to join the Interstellar Alliance and the Rangers, and helped other races in times of need. Also, they reportedly have angelic singing voices.

* Creator/AlanMoore also had the Pogo aliens (tiny anthropomorphic cartoon animals) in SwampThing, looking for a planet in tune with nature, unfortunately they landed on Earth. Where one of their party, a cartoon alligator, is eaten by our alligators and the rest flee the planet after seeing how humans behave.

Added DiffLines:

* This is a major trope that ''ComicBook/ResidentAlien'' is built on. Harry, the alien protagonist of the series, is not interested in causing any trouble; he just wants to lie low and blend in until he can someday, maybe, return home.

In [[{{Anvilicious}} some kinds of stories]], these aliens are used to prove that HumansAreTheRealMonsters, especially if they or the rest of the interplanetary community live peaceful, enlightened lives and we humans are the ones who go around shooting things and generally being destructive.

destructive. Even worse are settings where humans ''are'' monsters who want to [[TheyWouldCutYouUp capture such aliens to study them]] - [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman against their wishes, naturally.]]
