** The Ice Warriors, too: their big, hulking bodies are stated to be biomechanical spacesuits in their debut story. Though in a later episode it turns out that Ice Warriors are anything but frail outside of their suits; they stay in the suits primarily for cultural reasons related to honour.

* The Unggoy (aka Grunts) from ''{{Halo}}''. They are most often seen with [[GasMaskMooks masks on]], large tanks on their backs. (They breathe methane on their home planet, and carry it with them much like divers and astronauts.) Some higher-ranking Grunts may also have other armor on in addition to the methane tank, or the tank and mask may look different (as with the Heretic Grunts.)

** The Delegate from Arcturus in "The Curse of Peladon" is dependent on a huge black life support system out of which only his head is visible, enclosed in a solid clear dome that constantly spurts fluid. Some of his technology includes a sensor array, without which he becomes comatose, and a 'helium regenerator' which would be the easiest way to kill him. Due to how much it restricts his movement and capacity for doing anything, he crosses over into EvilCripple.

* The Quarians from ''Franchise/MassEffect'' wear them to protect their absent immune systems from having to deal with normal environment. From a more {{Doylist}} viewpoint, it helps make the [[SpaceJews Space Gypsies]] seem more hidden and closed off from the other races.

* The Daleks (pictured above) from ''Series/DoctorWho'', though their suits aren't so much suits as little tanks in which utterly feeble bodies reside. In the Seventh Doctor's words, they're not so much little green men as "little green blobs in bonded polycarbide armor." ** The Ice Warriors, too: their big, hulking bodies are stated to be biomechanical spacesuits in their debut story. Though in a later episode it turns out that Ice Warriors are anything but frail outside of their suits; they stay in the suits primarily for cultural reasons related to honor.

They need to breathe from a 'polarised centrifuge' to remain in this living state, but the closest thing to an actual death they have is just 'exhaustion', which is when their crystals revert to a simple (gaseous) state, and which is apparently temporary. In the ''Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures'' the Krotons' implied ability to inhabit any machine is made explicit when it is revealed they are able to possess Dalek ships.

** The Gaim from the same series wear encounter suits that resemble humanoids in gas masks. Underneath, the are insectoid and [[TakeOurWordForIt apparently]] far from humanoid. The suit serves both as environmental protection and a translator/speaker unit, as the Gaim are incapable of vocalizing most species' languages.

It's something that tends to happen with particularly advanced mentor-like alien species, [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Sufficiently Advanced]] AncientAstronauts and the like. You don't want to be something as uninspiring as a RubberForeheadAlien nor something as unphysical as an EnergyBeing while also maintaining some sense of secrecy and wonderment, so you take the "astronaut" idea and run with it. The aliens end up wearing large all-enclosing hazmat-like encounter suits that shield their frail physical butts from the elements.
