* ''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. 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.

* VoltronLegendaryDefender re-interprets the Alteans as a race of Space Elves, who use a blend of technology and magic in their ongoing conflict with the Galra Empire (who are run by your standard ProudWarriorRaceGuy )

* The Eldar in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', naturally.
''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', who started out quite literally as ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'''s High Elves InSpace. Humanoid, pointy-eared, [[FantasticRacism condescending to the lesser races]], and powerful [[PsychicPowers psykers]] in lieu of having actual magic, they're a DyingRace after the fall of their empire and now live primarily in a handful of Craftworlds -- {{Hidden Elf Village}}s crossed with planet-sized starships. Their name is even the one Tolkien's elves used for themselves.

* The Tanu and Firvulag are explicitly Space Elves in the ''Literature/SagaOfTheExiles''. They are AncientAliens who arrived in the Pliocene era, where they interbred with time travellers and became the inspiration for legends of TheFairFolk. A dimorphic species, the Tanu are traditional elves, tall, beautiful, etc., while the Firvulag are more mischievous and monstrous - playing the parts of the Seelie and Unseelie court of British mythology.

** In the original console RPG tetralogy the Numans were [[MagicByAnyOtherName 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''. This was made evident by their elf-like ears and use of claw weapons. Early development also gave Numans a musk cat's tail to drive the point home, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen but this was removed]].
** When Sonic Team took over development of the series starting with ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline'', they downplayed the CatGirl aspect of Numans, instead focusing more on their ability to use Techniques and their genetically-engineered nature. The Newmans of ''PSO'', while more magically-inclined, are genetically unstable creations living on borrowed time. Aside from the PointyEars--which in ''PSO'' changed to mirror contemporary depictions of elves in anime--as a race they lack the stereotypical traits of elves. Some individuals, like Dr. Montague, do come off as aloof, but that's more due to his ManChild / AbsentMindedProfessor personality.
** By the time of the ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarUniverse'' sub-series, the Newmans completed the transition from Cute Monster Girls into an Enlightened Mystic Race. While still a product of human genetic engineering, the Newmans split off from human civilization long ago and [[{{Wutai}} developed an idealized expy of Japanese culture]] on their very own planet, Newdaiz. The Newmans of ''PSU'' do not share the genetic instabilities of those from ''PSO''; in fact, they live longer and mature faster than humans. They also completely lack the animalistic nature of Numans from the tetralogy--that's the purview of a different race, the Beasts. Like more typical examples of space elves, ''PSU'''s Newmans can be quite aloof and smug about their affinity with photons and [[FantasticRacism hold this over the other races]].
