* 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.

Maggie gets infested with an insectoid parasite from another world that uses her to mate with human men.

** Both ''SG1'' and ''Atlantis'' have crystalline beings. The Unity in ''SG1'' accidentally hurt a Goa'uld, resulting in their near-extinction in retaliation. They are able to take on a humanoid shape from a human's memories. The crystal in ''Atlantis'' appears to be more malevolent, invading people's dreams and killing them there.
** The "giant aliens" discovered by Daniel's grandfather appear to be humanoid but ''huge''. They also exist out of phase with normal reality and are at war with the Goa'uld.

* The first ''Literature/TheLostFleet'' spin-off series introduces several truly alien extraterrestrial races. The Enigmas are snake-like and pathologically fear anyone knowing them, to the point of committing suicide to avoid capture and interrogation. The Bear-cows (AKA Kicks) look like large cuddly teddy bears, but their aggressive herd mentality causes them to instantly view any other species as either a predator (which needs to be killed) or a rival for the same resources (who also must be killed). Geary makes the mistake of smiling at them, causing them to recognize humans as predators by our canines. Like the Enigmas, they also commit suicide rather than be captured, but this is because they don't want to be eaten alive. The Spider-wolves (AKA Dancers) look like an unholy cross between those two animals, but are actually the nicest of the three. They share the concept of beauty with humans, especially when it applies to patterns, and are the only ones willing to communicate. Oh, and they think [[DuctTapeForEverything duct tape]] is the greatest thing in the universe.

* The Masters, the antagonists who drive Literature/TheTripods, are tall cone-shaped creatures with three eyes, three legs and three tentacles. Physically they breath thick, green fog, have a low tolerance for ethyl alcohol (which becomes a major plot point later), and an [[AchillesHeel extremely sensitive area]] between their respiratory orifice and ingestive orifice, making the lightest brush extremely painful. They breathe a thick, greenish gas that is deadly to humans, bathe in near-boiling water several times a day to keep moist, have their own form of drugs, and seem to have only one disease. Psychologically, they are incapable of lying and cannot grasp the concept of fiction or exaggeration (though at least one of them gains a firm understanding of sarcasm), are incredibly tolerant of hardship and difficulty (to the point of becoming ill if they don't work hard), drink gas bubbles as an intoxicant, and die if they're put in a situation they feel they can't escape from (as one master innately committed suicide when captured by the White Mountain Resistance in ''The Pool of Fire''.)

* [[PlanetLooters The Corasians]] from ''Literature/StarOfTheGuardians'' are borderline-EnergyBeings that look like giant, glowing amoebas in their true forms, but typically inhabit [[MiniMecha robotic exoskeletons]] to move about more efficiently in. Psychologically they've got a HiveMind and generally don't relate to non-Corasians as anything but [[ImAHumanitarian food]] or a convenient source of new technology to steal, though they're smart enough to work with other species on a temporary basis if it gets them one or both of these things in the long run. Pretty much all the other species in the series consider them a menace, and attempts to find common ground with them typically fail miserably.
