* The aliens in ''Anime/{{Tsuritama}}'' are literally fish aliens. They have human and fish forms, require water to live and can communicate through it. Whenever they try it with humans though, it ends up as MindControl.

* Except for a one-strip crossover with ''[[http://zeera.comicgenesis.com/ Zeera the Space Pirate]]'', all of the aliens in ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' have been shown to be nonhumanoid, at least in their true forms. These include the Ipecacians, who resemble lobsters; the Fleenians, who are rubber-limbed centaurs with giant eyeballs for heads; and Ahem, who resembles a three-legged jellyfish. The butterfly-like Nemesites such as Princess Voluptua and Fructose Riboflavin frequently use shapeshifting technology to appear human, however.

* In Creator/GregoryBenford's ''The Sunborn'' humanity discovers strange alien gas-bags on Pluto when some of them start feeding off of the heat given off by their probe. Said alien gas-bags have sapient intelligence. And then a bunch of robotic drones descends on Pluto apparently ''eating'' said aliens. These robotic drones turn out to be the equivalent of microscopic instruments used by what is apparently an intelligent race of electromagnetic waves. Benford's ''Against Infinity'' has an alien entity called the Aleph, which is even weirder.

* The actual Alien archtype in ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' is pretty easy to understand, as most of them range from TheGreys to ''Franchise/{{Alien}}''-style creatures that are still relatively humanoid. The Worm archtype on the other hand are truly strange, as they have wildly different physical appearances with only a few of them being even vaguely humanoid. The boss monster, Worm Zero, crosses over into EldritchAbomination territory, as it appears as a building-sized moonlike sphere of flesh that is formed by absorbing the bodies of other Worms and seems to be able to affect reality.

** There are also gas-like creatures that possess humans and [[OutWithABang absorb their sexual partners during an orgasm]] (probably inspired by an ''[[Series/TheOuterLimits1995 Outer Limits]]'' episode with a similar premise).

* An episode of ''Series/{{Sliders}}'' has sentient ''fire'' from an alternate dimension (so, not really aliens, since they're on Earth). Arturo learns to communicate with it by jury-rigging a translation device that converts sound into colors. Later, though, the fire learns to speak English and even takes on a humanoid shape. It can also find its own Earth during a slide.

It can also find its own Earth during a slide. Another episode appears to be inspired by ''Film/{{Species}}''. Maggie gets infested with an insectoid parasite from another world that uses her to mate with human men.
