** Due to PaintingTheMedium, we know when someone's clearly not speaking normal words though we don't know how it works. Andalite-style thought-speak is represented <like so> instead of "like so," and Leeran speech (spoken or not) is in italics and underline. Therefore, it's safe to assume that when the Ellimist starts talking in small uppercase letters it ''doesn't'' sound like his harmless-looking human disguise form is speaking normally. Interestingly, his opposite number, GodOfEvil Crayak, ''does'' speak with normal quote marks. Apparently he doesn't feel the need to communicate in a more impressive/intimidating fashion.

* In the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', there aren't any inherently telepathic alien species; that said, the Tautiq and the Pelkons are both more likely to acquire PsychicPowers than humans are, and are less likely to be driven mad by those powers. Xorn and Delethai, on the other hand, are even less likely than humans to gain such powers.

* ''ComicBook/{{Shakara}}'': The Psico Collective are one of the most powerful species in the universe due to their innately vast psychic and telekinetic powers. Their bodies are very frail, but their floating eye-shaped heads can combine into a HiveMind.

* In VideoGame/TheSims3: Seasons'', aliens have this ability. Full-blooded aliens can "Scan", which leads to them discovering the target Sim's traits.

** [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]] deconstructs this. The Colonies follow a 'Newtypism' ideology, essentially this trope as a political movement. It quickly becomes clear that the Colonies do not actually have any Newtypes among them, and in the series perhaps ''5'' emerge (if you don't count the Frost brothers), all from ''Earth''. At the end, D.O.M.E. makes it clear that [[spoiler: the "Newtypes" that appeared were basically ''mutants'', and their abilities merely individual talents that happened to be similar to each other.]]

* The Nameks from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' are stated to have this role. As are the Yardrats, according to Goku, and presumably whatever race King Kai comes from. It seems to be one of the setting's StockSuperpowers that comes with attaining a certain threshold of ki control and power level; Goku also demonstrates it at least once, although [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands it shows up]] [[ForgotAboutHisPowers inconsistently]].

King Kai has an apparently unlimited ability to open telepathic communication with anyone in the universe, ''from outside the universe'', and direct physical contact with him (normally in the form of a hand on his shoulder) allows anyone else to piggy-back on that ability even if they have no telepathy of their own.

Added DiffLines:

** Notably, Andalites did not always have the ability for thought-speak; when the Ellimist encounters prehistoric Andalites in ''The Ellimist Chronicles'', they communicate using sign language (due to their lack of mouths).

* In ''Series/LoisAndClark'', Superman finds out that he is a member of a Main/TelepathicSpacemen species when he encounters a group of survivors from Krypton. The only reason he never knew he was telepathic was that he had no one to "talk" to before.

* The Andalites from ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', as well as anyone who uses their morphing technology (which is a nice work-around for the issue of "How can your team communicate when everyone is a rat"). The first book seems to indicate that normal humans can do this too, as long as they focus and the recipient is in morph, and that one can broadcast images as well as verbal communication this way, but [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness neither of these ever come up again]]. Also Leerans (in addition to being psychic mind-readers) and Garatrons. The Yeerks themselves seem to be telepathic in a sense, but only when they're inside a host body and only for Yeerk-to-host communications. It seems to be part of their physical link to the host's brain; we find that their bodies aren't as solid as they appear and they're able to spread over and through the brain, linking their neurons to the host's neurons.
