* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' had the Lorwardians, a race of aliens who were not only giant, superstrong creatures, but they also possessed an arsenal of power world-destroying weapons. They were so advanced that it only took two of them to unleash an army of {{tripod|Terror}}s and conquer the earth 'in the time it takes to order a pizza. They were only brought down by Drakken's new mutant {{plant p|erson}}owers destroying the army of walkers while Ron used his Mystical Monkey Powers to take down the invaders.

* It seems like ''Franchise/StarTrek'' had dozens of these buggers running around the edges of the Federation: The Cytherians; Trelane, the so-called "Squire of Gothos"; the Organians; the Q; the Thasians, who reared Charlie "Charlie X" Evans; The Companion; Nagilum; the Caretaker; the Douwd (one of whom wiped out an expansionist empire in a fit of anger); Bajor's "Prophets" (even though they never came out of the wormhole); Apollo and the other Olympians; even Quetzalcoatl (in an episode of the animated series). It's implied that Wesley Crusher [[AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence became one]] when he was PutOnABus, as did Kes from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''.

* The Earthlings from ''{{Vandread}}''. They grow humans like crops, have giant, self sustaining battleships, can copy the shape and powers of the Vandreads, and live by replacing their body parts with the body parts of the aforementioned humans. Their EnfanteTerrible leader can communicate telepathically and crush things/people with telekinetic powers.

** Pearl also wound up babysitting some bratty SufficientlyAdvanced alien kids in a parody of ''Star Trek'''s Trelane.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' features Ego, an eons-old living planet [[spoiler:revealed to be a Celestial]]. His human form is merely an projection from his true stellar body, who has the power to assimilate and control matter and destroys an entire fleet of starfighters by [[OneManArmy himself]]. When other characters call him a God, he says he is one with a small "g", meaning he is only a immensely powerful being instead of all-powerful.

* The Xel'Naga from ''{{Starcraft}}''. They're all about cosmic cycles, "star-forging", and re-creating themselves out of separate species that they engineer and eventually unite. All was nice and dandy until [[spoiler:an EldritchAbomination did them in by corrupting the Zerg, who TurnedAgainstTheirMasters]], and the Xel'Naga haven't been seen since.

* The entire plot of ''Anime/KadoTheRightAnswer'' is about what happens when a sufficiently advanced alien (an extra-dimensional being called Yaha-kui [=zaShunina=]) touches down in modern-day Japan and wants to communicate with humanity. Both Yaha-kui and his dwelling/spaceship/'translator' KADO is so beyond humanity (and our laws of physics) his sheer presence makes people understandably nervous, even though he appears to be benign.

* Some of the most advanced technology in OrionsArm is referred to as "clarktech" or "clarketech" in reference to this. Although it's not created by aliens, but by Sufficiently Advanced ''Terragens'' -- the Archai and the higher Transapients.

* ''[[Series/BabylonFive Babylon 5]]'' has Lorien and the First Ones (the Vorlons and the Shadows can be killed, so they're not on this level; and they represent themselves as [[spoiler: angels and demons respectively]] rather than as gods).

* The Argonds in ''Series/TheAdventureGame'' are more powerful and technologically advanced than the time-and-space travellers from Earth who visit each week, and although polite, they have "a regrettable sense of humour" that inspires them to set a wide variety of lateral thinking and {{Room Escape Game}}s for the Earthlings to solve before they will let them leave again - and even then, they have to cross the grid of the Vortex, which will evaporate them and force them to return to Earth ''on foot'' if they move onto the space it currently occupies.
