* Parodied in Creator/DianeDuane's ''Franchise/StarTrek'' novel, ''Literature/SpocksWorld''--a tabloid newspaper reports that Spock's mother, Amanda, has married a little green man. (As a Vulcan, Sarek has green blood and a slightly green complexion.) Amanda tells reporters at a press conference, "There is nothing little about my husband." Even [[TheStoic Sarek]] cracks up once the context is fully explained.

** Canon ''Franchise/StarTrek'' has them, actually: they're not smaller than humans, but the Andorians are blue-green and have antennae, apparently as a nod to this trope.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' SpinOff ''BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'', the three-eyed toy aliens are even referred to as "[=LGMs=]"--{{Grammar Nazi}}s notwithstanding. In the first episode it's revealed that they share a psychic link that they call "[[HiveMind Unimind]]", and their homeworld's name is a string of unpronounceable gibberish.

* The alien in the [[{{Narm}} somewhat cheesy]] (yet [[NightmareFuel surprisingly effective]]) [[TheBlairWitchProject Haxan Films]] movie [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altered_(film) Altered]] is certainly little and green, although it's built somewhat like a cross between a Grey and a [[{{Aliens}} xenomorph.]] [[spoiler: And so are the rest of them when they show up at the climax.]] As for whether the "men" part [[BizarreAlienSexes actually applies,]] it's worth noting that the alien is played by stuntwoman [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0741103/?ref_=tt_cl_t6 Misty Rosas.]]

* Frederic Brown's novel ''Martians Go Home!'' features an invasion of little green men who attack Earth not with saucers or rayguns, but with an ability to appear anywhere, immunity to all harm, and absolutely no tact. They refer to all male humans as "Mac", and all female humans as "Toots". In one (obvious) scene, a Martian pops in on a pair of newlyweds, and refuses to leave until he observes human mating practices.
** Worse, the Martians are inveterate tattle-tale gossips, constantly ferreting out and blabbing every embarrassing human secret. Their stories [[WillNotTellALie always check out]], so people can't ignore or dismiss them.

* ''VideoGame/TheSims2''. If you spend too much time looking through a telescope, you get abducted by these. If the sim is a male, they'll later have a HalfHumanHybrid. Only the [[MisterSeahorse males have a kid,]] females just waste time in space. You can also put them in your neighborhoods. They're really just like any other Sims, except green. (They are, however, also the same size as "normal" Sims. Unless you use a mod or cheat to make them shorter.)
** Also added into The Sims 3 Seasons expansion pack.
** They're really more green [[TheGreys Greys]] than little green men.
