* The Vorlons from ''Series/BabylonFive'', who not only need a completely alien atmosphere but also have their own reasons for wanting to hide their true appearance. Comes complete with NeglectfulPrecursor behaviour.
** They don't actually need that atmosphere, they just use it to discourage visitors.
*** In the series finale humans become like this too, though they don't need to; they probably took a lesson from the Vorlons about the advantages of standing around being cryptic when dealing with younger races.
** The Gaim from the same series wear encounter suits that resemble humanoids in gas masks. Underneath, they 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.

* The Unggoy (aka Grunts) from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' are a partial example. They tend to wear no clothes and only partial armor, but they're always seen with [[GasMaskMooks breathing apparatuses]] on their faces and large tanks on their backs, as they can only breath methane and have to carry it with them much like divers and astronauts.

* The Unggoy (aka Grunts) from ''Franchise/{{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.)

** Though according to Weyoun, their planet is actually quite mild. It's also said that if you saw a Breen in the flesh, it'd turn you to stone. However, ''this'' is also clearly a lie, as Kira manages to steal one of their uniforms without any ill effects. In the StarTrekNovelVerse, there's more than one kind of Breen, they just all wear environment suits that make them look identical. Some of them need the refrigeration, some of them don't. Possibly, some of them turn you to stone and some of them don't as well.

** 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.
