* In ''SwordOfTheStars'', the Zuul use the resources of their worlds at an unsustainably high rate, called "overharvesting". While all races can do this, it is only compulsory for the Zuul. According to AllThereInTheManual, however, the Zuul's greatest pillaging goal is slaves: Zuul use other races' bodies for food and manual labour, and their minds for technological advance and other... [[MindRape Recreation]]. And they obtain them by raiding other species colonies, or colonizing a planet whose civilian population partially survived the OrbitalBombardment.

* StephenBaxter uses Planet Looters in ''ManifoldSpace'', but the aliens attack any planetary bodies they come across. It's just that there are so many of them (with so many different needs) that sooner or later they'll get to the inhabited ones. All of known space has been picked over repeatedly for hundreds of millions of years.

* The Vasari from ''SinsOfASolarEmpire'' have built their whole culture around this. They've been fleeing some threat for ten thousand years, stopping only to strip worlds of materials to build new ships and fuels for the next leg of their journey. The problem arises when they arrive in human space; they loot both the uninhabitable planets and those colonized by humans.

* The space vampires from ''film/{{Lifeforce}} come to Earth to harvest the eponymous [[LifeEnergy life force]] from humans to power up their EldritchStarship. They have been doing this since ancient time, hiding within the tail of Halley's comet, to the point that's theorized within the film that their past visits [[DoingInTheWizard gave birth to the legends of modern vampires]].

* Inverted in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', [[spoiler:where, due to the severe damage suffered by the Frontier fleet, and the dwindling resources (it's stated that they will last for two or three months maximum), the government decides to attack the Vajra homeworld and break through the Vajra defenses, hoping to colonize it. At one point, one of Alto's wingmen deliberately comments "This planet is ours!" while blasting away at the local inhabitants.]]

Once peace is established with the Vajra, they willingly give up the planet and leave the galaxy for unknown reaches.]]

* The Blastula in ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'' as said to be this. Examples of the planets they looted (deserted wastelands) are shown on video. As they live in very hot environments they first increase the planet temperature to unbearable levels for more life forms before looting it and planned to do the same to Earth until the Men In Black acted.

* The Diamond Authority in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' colonizes planets and pillages them for badly needed resources to make more Gems. Which is why it's unusual [[spoiler: that Yellow Diamond wants the Earth destroyed. She knows it's lush with resources, but she's putting RevengeBeforeReason and wants it destroyed for all the trouble the Crystal Gems have given her, including causing the death of Pink Diamond.]]

Which is why it's unusual [[spoiler: By the series' present, this strategy seems to be facing diminishing returns and the next generation of Gems are weaker than those that Yellow came before. This makes it all the more glaring that [[spoiler:Yellow Diamond wants the Earth destroyed.
