** The Kree are the more blatant example being a draconian
and now even militaristic society with xenophobic tendencies and with their own StateSec in the Inhumans.form of the Accuser Corps. The Shi'Ar on the other hand are more like SpaceRomans.

* The Gems from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' ([[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch barring the protagonists]], of course). They conquer other worlds and drill into the bedrock with bacteriophage engines, creating more of their kin. This process pretty much dooms any given world they set their eyes upon, and although some of them do consider the native life forms "infestations" (hypocritically, given that they're basically reproducing like viruses), on a wider sense they simply ''don't care''.

On top of that, Gem culture is brutally utilitarian ''and'' revolves around a rigid FantasticCasteSystem.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' has the Kett, who [[UpToEleven COMBINE ALL FOUR TYPES]]. They represent "aliens as Nazis" due to their fixation with genetic purity, charismatic psychopath leader and an associated fixation with [[TheyWouldCutYouUp invasive]] [[PlayingWithSyringes scientific procedures]]. They represent "aliens as communists" through the [[CloneByConversion exaltation process]] making all non-kett into kett as an example of literal assimilation. They represent "aliens as religious fundamentalists" as the exaltation process is considered holy and some of their imagery and titles are directly ripped from real-life religions ([[UnfortunateImplications and all that the latter two imply]]). They represent "aliens as conquistadors" as they have come to a new land to convert the native population and often times has had skirmishes with another foreign civilization.
* The Space Pirates from ''{{Metroid}}'' games, when not pirating stuff[[note]]Which really seems to entail adapting otherworldly technology for their own use, rather than the nominal use of the term.[[/note]], seem to believe it is their manifest destiny to conquer the galaxy and nothing should be allowed to stand in their way. In ''Metroid Prime 3'', where Dark Samus brainwashes their leaders, they become full-blown religious fundementalists, forming a cult that worships [[GreenRocks Phazon]] and considers Dark Samus to be their prophet.

* The [[UltimateUniverse Ultimate Comics]] has the Chitauri, at first seemingly a Skrull {{Expy}} race PiggybackingOnHitler but later turns out they ''really'' consider ''themselves'' the MasterRace and intend to kill all other lifeforms in the universe. Turns out they've been kicked off of all the other planets where they've attempted this and Earth is their last ditch attempt at TakingYouWithMe in the end.

* Creator/KenichiSonoda (of ''Manga/GunsmithCats'' fame)'s ''Manga/CannonGodExaxxion'''s main antagonists, the Riofaldians, have many similarities to the Nazis, especially the sinister Major Rya'am & Lt. Za'ire, who are basically alien versions of Josef Mengele & Film/IlsaSheWolfOfTheSS. Interestingly, they're actually a lot closer overall to another of the Axis Powers, namely ImperialJapan, which is probably why the series was never made into an anime...

* ''{{Traveller}}'' has the K'kree, a species of Scary Dogmatic Militant Vegans who consider it their holy duty to exterminate all carnivores...and whose definition of "carnivore" extends even to ''[[UpToEleven fungi that feed on decaying carcasses]]''.

Aliens come from another planet. Their entire culture, history, and even biology could be radically different from that of us Earth-folk. It should not be surprising if they are ''so'' different that we [[StarfishAliens can't comprehend them at all]].

*** The alternate-universe Cybermen in the new series, while maintaining some of their communist parallels, also represent materialistic technophilia. Their Creator/SteveJobs-esque creator controls the world through Cybus Industries, a communications-technology conglomerate (think Apple on steroids). People even start implanting earbud-like devices inside their heads to access digital information more easily. And this is where it all goes to hell: Cybus starts using these "Ear-Pods" as mind control devices and "upgrades" every single Ear-Pod user into a Cyberman.

Added DiffLines:

* This one keeps coming back. The titular civilisation from Creator/IainBanks' ''Literature/TheCulture'' can exhibit this trope themselves at times, though they're space ''anarcho-communists''. [[BewareTheNiceOnes With the ability to erase whole star systems when their freedom and way of life is threatened.]] You know the Idirans from the "As Religious Fundamentalists" example? The Culture were the ones who were willing to ignore their surrender terms and fight them to the death for ideological reasons, and the Idirans at that point were no threat to them.
