* On ''Series/TheOrville'', despite being HeavyWorlder people with SuperStrength, it appears that the Xelayans are this if Alara's parents are any indication. They strongly favor intellectual pursuits and talk down to people they consider to be of lesser intelligence. As far as they are concerned, humans are "the hillbillies of the galaxy". Just to complete things, they have pointed ears.

* Creator/RayBradbury's Martians. Slender, beautiful with copper skin and golden eyes, members of an elegant culture with psychic powers and a psychology bordering on BlueAndOrangeMorality
* S. M. Stirling's Martians in his Literature/LordsOfCreation universe. Tall and thin because of Martian gravity with a civilization, now in decline, that was at it's peak when Earthlings were just discovering the joys of agriculture and a science based on OrganicTechnology.



* Castithans in ''Series/{{Defiance}}''. The Tarr family at least has the Machivallian tendencies and hedonism of Dark Elves, whether this applies to the race in general is uncertain. Their son at least seems to be a bit better. Meanwhile the Liberata are Space Dwarves who used to be [[ProudMerchantRace more typical of the race]] (they still are physically) but are now a ServantRace.

* Played with in ''Film/ValerianAndTheCityOfAThousandPlanets'', which has the Pearls of Mül, a beautiful, slender, glowing-skinned people who live on a primitive, pristine paradise, only to become experts in physics, engineering, languages, architecture and navigation once they leave their home planet and learn about the universe.

* The San'Shyuum from ''Franchise/Halo'' were responsible for most of the Covenant's brain work, and books reveal that they overlapped somewhat with traditional elves in prehistoric times.

* The Protoss from ''Franchise/StarCraft'', complete with a "Dark" subrace, the Dark Templar. Though they turn out to be a strong case of DarkIsNotEvil, they were only outcast from the main Protoss Empire because of their rejection of the Khala HiveMind and caste system. Though ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' introduces the Tal'darim as a more blatantly evil "Dark Protoss" who govern by KlingonPromotion [[spoiler: and serve the BigBad, until one of their leaders decides he's lying to them and asks the heroes' help in taking over.]]

** Spock and his Vulcan ilk are scholarly, long-lived, [[PointyEars pointy-eared]], [[FourTemperamentEnsemble phlegmatic]], and psychic. Vulcans are also vegetarian, and consider their way of life superior to humans'. There are already Vulcan examples in CantArgueWithElves... because you can't.

** In the original console RPG tetralogy the Numans were [[PsychicPowers Technique]]-using {{Cute Monster Girl}}s: they were genetically engineered hybrids of human and musk cat DNA, thereby continuing Myau's legacy from ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarI''. The pointy, cat-like ears and use of claw weapons helped to illustrate the Numans' heritage. During development of ''PhantasyStarII'', Numans also sported a musk cat's tail to drive the point home, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen but this was removed]].

* ''Film:TronLegacy'': The [=ISOs=] (Isomorphic Algorithms) are more like Cyberspace Elves, but fit the bill. Unlike anything else in Kevin Flynn's Grid, they were not written by him, but generated by the system itself, and even he is far from fully understanding their code. He describes them as "profoundly naïve" and "unimaginably wise" and hails them as a miracle and the answer to every question ever asked by mankind. ''VideoGame/TronEvolution'' and ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' go on to establish them as a PerfectPacifistPeople with a sophisticated culture, clothing and architecture unlike the utilitarian {{Cyberpunk}} Basic programs. [[spoiler: [[RuleOfDrama Naturally]], [[FantasticRacism they are doomed]]]].
