* When pulsars were first discovered in TheSixties, astronomers had no idea what they were. Some suggested that they represented intelligent life. The first few to be discovered were named LGM 1, LGM 2, etc. Eventually, they were discovered to be spinning neutron stars.

* The Skrulls in MarvelComics started out as almost completely stereotypical little green men in the second issue of ''ComicBook/FantasticFour.'' They even arrived in a literal flying saucer, which Reed stored in the Baxter Building for years afterward. Decades of stories since then have fleshed them out a lot (and they're generally portrayed to be of human ''height'' these days, although one could argue that height is arbitrary for a race of [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifters]]), but when all's said and done, they're still [[AlienInvasion invading alien]] green guys with "bug eyes" and ray guns.

* Peridot, one of the [[RubberForeheadAliens gems]] in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', is a lot like a CuteMonsterGirl version of an LGM: she's a green alien who came to Earth for mysterious reasons, has a nasal high-pitched voice, favors a clipped monotone pattern of speech, and [[spoiler:without her fake arms and legs, she's actually about the size of a small child]].

* The Xerbians from ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' are green (with purple hands) and, on average, slightly shorter than the average Earthling (this isn't readily apparent, as they are mainly seen around the much shorter Paperinik, but the rare other interactions show them), and their (rarely used) weapons are indeed {{Ray Gun}}s. On the other hand they don't follow the other parts of the trope: their ships don't look like flying saucers, they aren't hostile at all, and the only mysterious part was when one of their ships, left adrift after the Evronians boarded and captured the crew, followed its programming to establish first contact to take a passing Earth ship in and the security system (damaged by the Evronians and the failure to protect the crew) put the Earthlings under cryo stasis to recreate its crew.

* 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.
