* TheGreys are something of a recurring symbol for Peridot in WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse. In "Log Date 7 15 2" she puts on a pair of GoofyPrintUnderwear dotted with their heads, her tape recorder has a sticker of a grey's head, and Peridot falls in love with a large stuffed Grey doll in "Too Short To Ride", her desire to win one being part of the catalyst that starts the plot.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': The Silence resemble Greys crossed with TheMenInBlack. Their enlarged craniums have hollows below their (relatively normal-sized) eyes to make them appear black and huge. They first show up in America, influenced NASA to go to the moon, [[spoiler: and reappear in the season finale - inside a pyramid with a US flag painted on one side, dubbed "Area 52".]]

What they do with those abducted varies, but performing experiments on them, especially [[AnalProbing intrusive]] [[AliensMadeThemDoIt sexual]] [[MarsNeedsWomen experiments]], is common. Specifically, AnalProbing and the creation of {{Half Human Hybrid}}s. Why aliens would be so interested in human sex remains unclear, although the standard story is that they are nearing extinction, and they need human genetic material in order to restore both their reproductive capabilities, and their ability to experience emotion. (It has been noted that their appearance and modus operandi share [[SciFiCounterpart more than a passing resemblance]] to those of the more traditional depictions of the [[TheFairFolk Fair Folk]], suggesting alternately an innate human need to believe in such beings or [[WildMassGuess the length of time]] [[ParanoiaFuel they've been studying us]].)

* ''Film/{{Stargate}}'' villain Ra was originally a grey-like alien that somehow managed to posess a human to survive as its own body was dying. Glimpses of this as well as a wall painting depicting his true form are seen throughout the film. Just before [[spoiler:he is nuked at the end]] his true appearance is revealed for the last time.

Once the show was created and the Asgard introduced (see below) this was explained that Ra's previous host was an Asgard.

* The "''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' meets ''Series/TheXFiles''" {{RPG}} ''DeltaGreen'' has the Greys as a mask worn by the Mi-gou, a race of fungus-like aliens with sinister intentions. They struck a deal with Majestic-12 (Delta Green's "replacement") and regularly supply them with reality-bending technology.

* In the horror anthology ''Film/VHS2'', the Greys are the titular antagonists of ''Slumber Party Alien Abduction''. They are extremely agile and hostile spending their segment of the film harassing human teenagers and children. [[TheBadGuyWins In the end the Greys kidnap them to do experiments or for an alien-run human trafficking ring]].

** The Baltians, another grey-looking alien race albeit taller than humans (as some greys are allegedly in RealLife). The first race un doing "official" FirstContact with humans and the ones giving humans all sorts of technologies that the MIB decide when they go public. They also travel in flying saucers.
