Often the "come in peace" part of WeComeInPeaceShootToKill. Contrast AliensAreBastards. If they're played for laughs, they may also be {{amusing alien}}s as well.

well. It's possible that there are other aliens that aren't innocents in the setting, but the trope implies a whole population of aliens who are AlwaysLawfulGood.

* The [[CatGirl Catians]] in ''LightNovel/CatPlanetCuties''. Eris is only 16, but even the adult Catians are very pleasant attractive women and their main reason for establishing diplomatic relations with Earth seems to be to try out Earth foods and entertainment.

The InnocentAliens are like this. They've just arrived at our planet (though in some, rarer cases, we go to theirs, instead) and are total babes in the woods, displaying a very warped understanding of the humans' way of life. They're wide-eyed and childlike, and occasionally even need protection from hostile human beings, often [[GeneralRipper trigger-happy military types]] who think they're up to no good and need to be exterminated for the common good.

* Ashley from the ''Literature/NurseryCrime'' series is a blue-skinned, partly-translucent tridactyl from the planet Rambosia working as a cop in [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Reading, England]]. Though not quite as naive as most InnocentAliens, he's confused by human mannerisms and even more so by [[BizarreAlienBiology our biology]]. One time, he needed Jack to explain to him how human mating worked.

* The piggies from the [[EndersGame Ender]] series of books. That being said, they [[spoiler: ritually sacrificed several scientists, but they didn't know that humans follow a different life-cycle than them and wouldn't turn into sentient trees.]] Likewise the Buggers, who didn't realize for many years that humans were individually sentient beings (rather than drones controlled by a Queen) and resolved to leave them alone after the first two invasions of Earth, but by then [[spoiler: humanity, faced with near extinction during the second invasion, had already launched their desperate counter-attack which culminated in Ender blowing up the Bugger homeworld.]]
** There are bad piggies in later books, though. They end up committing outright murder by infecting a character ([[spoiler:one of Ender's adopted sons]]) and letting him die, then claiming they didn't directly kill him. Naturally, the humans call bullshit on such LoopholeAbuse.

* Leeloo from ''Film/TheFifthElement'', to a degree.
** To a degree meaning 'until she grabs your throat/ puts a gun to your head for almost kissing her/ jumps off a building into your cab/ kicks a roomful of alien warrior ass'
* The Thermians from ''Film/GalaxyQuest''.
** To the point that they don't realize "Galaxy Quest" was an Earth television show, simply because their race doesn't understand the entire concept of fiction, at all; at best they liken it to lying (and even that is an unfamiliar new discovery, learned at great cost from the race that was wiping them out).

** Then again anyone armed to the teeth with weapons that blow up anything they hit, can't be ''that'' friendly. One common fan theory is that they're an army falling back.
*** WordOfGod says they're colonists that have gone off track. All those fantastic and powerful weapons? Their equivalent of a gun locker.

* Leó Szilárd, the famous nuclear physicist also wrote some short stories. In one called "Report on 'Grand Central Terminal'", alien scientists arrive to Earth after a nuclear war wiped out all life. They completely fail to understand things like the monetary system and think that war between the members of one species is impossible. The only alien who figures it out is dismissed by his superiors.

* ''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.

* The title character in the ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' episode "The Starboy" is a genetically engineered alien child who has left a trail of destruction across the galaxy; those whose planets he destroyed have banded together to destroy him - by destroying Earth, where he has recently landed. However, the four youngest Defenders realise Starboy is [[ChildrenAreInnocent not inherently evil]] and lashed out because he was afraid of being abandoned. In the end, Mandrake (disguised as Starboy's creator) helps Starboy to understand that, if he wants to gain the friendship of others, he must stop using his powers destructively and start using them to help people.
