** The aliens in ''VideoGame/TheSims 2'' are like this only [[LittleGreenMen green]]. Full aliens aren't player characters (except Pollination Tech #9 Smith and Stella Terrano), but alien hybrids can be created if a Sim is abducted.
** In ''The Sims 3'', aliens were introduced in the ''Seasons'' ExpansionPack. They look similar to the aliens in ''The Sims 2''. Unlike the previous game, however, it is possible to befriend a full blooded alien and move it into your household.
** ''The Sims 4''' introduces aliens in the ''Get to Work'', this time allowing players to create their own in Create a Sim.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' newcomers the Tau are close to this trope (perhaps the original Greys got purged by the Imperium of Man?). The Tau have grey skin, dark eyes, and no nose, but they are taller than typical Greys, and have hoofed feet (They are evolved from grazing ruminants and uplifted through the pheremone glands of a giant insect). Though their vessels are not saucers, they favor smooth, rounded shapes, and their technology looks more advanced than the humans' (it actually goes both ways; being a far younger race, the Tau's maximum level of technology is behind that of humanity's, but their standard equipment is generally superior to the Imperium's, which can't even remember how to build much of its best technology). The Tau are not so much about abducting people as they are about welcoming them into their [[TheFederation empire]], whether they want to or not. They subvert the trope by being relatively naive and idealistic in a thoroughly GrimDark setting - they justify orbital bombardment and sterilization as being "[[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans for the Greater Good]]" rather than killing out of xenophobia.

* The main antagonists of a few entries in ''Psionic Games''. These are tall, almost human-sized beings that wear a strange slim form of armor, have telepathic powers, and carry laser guns that [[BodyHorror drastically warp a target organism's body.]]
** The ''Icescape'' series sets these as their most prominent appearance thus far.
*** The first game gets kicked off by one of their ships having crashed into your Arctic base, and a survivor screams "We do not come in peace" before you shoot it at point-blank range.
*** The second involves another species of aliens as flesh-eating insects that swarmed a mining station.
*** The third has you shoot groups of these aliens and even stop another ship from landing. But the military, instead of rescuing you, [[HeKnowsTooMuch lock you up]] with one of the creatures who begs for your help.
** ''Killer Escape 3'' brings a surprise reappearance of the same aliens and goes into more detail about them, including the fact that they are the {{Mooks}} of the Observer, [[spoiler: and explaining how Dr. Rycroft was given so many test subjects in the ''Being One'' series.]]

* Some animations in ''Pinball/TheXFiles'' (like the extra ball and Shoot Again ones) display these. (Notably, the one on the "Shoot Again" screen is smoking.)
