* The Abh of ''LightNovel/CrestOfTheStars'' are a very interesting version of this trope. While the are a race of imperialistic SpaceElves who conquer every indpendent world they get near and explicitly state their ultimate goal as the conquest of the entire galaxy and subjugation of humankind, they do not exercise any kind of opression over planets they conquered and actually put a great deal of care into making these worlds wealthy and prosperous. Though Abh do deprive humans from the right of owning interstellar ships, they justify it with preventing conflicts it causes. And also, ''they'' are the protagonists, not the resisting humans, who are {{designated villain}}S.

* The Covenant in ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' worship the ancient Forerunners and their artifacts, whose messages are interpreted by the high species of "Prophets". The above subtrope quote originated when the first game was in development for the Macintosh, but it's established in the ExpandedUniverse as [[OhCrap the single message the Covenant send the sole remaining human ship after an early battle]]. Of course, it turns out that the Covenant's xenophobia is a direct result of [[spoiler:jealousy and denial by the Prophets themselves, who had discovered that the Forerunners thought [[HumansAreSpecial we were special enough to inherit their civilization]].]]

* The [[ComicBook/PostCrisis current version of the]] Thanagarian race from TheDCU (HumanAliens from a planet orbiting Polaris) have an expansionist culture with a fascist government, though individual Thanagarians aren't all evil. Comparisons to the Nazis don't end there: They have a red-and-black insignia and make use of raptor imagery. Recent developments have seen the rise of a new faction of Thanagarian religious fanatics that fit the "aliens as religious fundamentalists" subtrope.

* Unity, a parasitic hive mind from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', with the tiny difference that its "invasion" (or at least its aftermath) isn't scary at all, making it a sort of subversion: The planet it assimilated is peaceful and utopic, and far more pleasant in comparison to its troubled, ultra-racist history as a free-willed society. In fact, everything was going just fine until Rick, who happened to be an old flame of her/him/they/it, shows up...

** The best part is that they've doing this for so long that they don't even remember ''why''. When they were asked their own [[ArmorPiercingQuestion questions meant to determine identity and purpose]] "Who are you" and "What do you want", they had no answers.
