* Greys by the name of Sectoids are a common enemy in the ''{{X-COM}}'' series, along with an elongated species called Ethereals who go around in large orange cloaks. They use plasma guns and psychic powers in their invasion of Earth. The second game introduces the Aquatoids, who are adapted to life underwater.
** ''Apocalypse'' give us the Hybrids, a race derived from a Human/Sectoid crossbreed that have many features inherited from the Sectoids.

* The greys show up in the {{Tabletop RPG}}s ''{{TabletopGame/Alternity}}'' and later ''D20Modern'' under the name Fraal. Most are in the wise and benevolent mode, studying the effects of alien intervention on humanity, while trying to safeguard them from aliens with less benign intentions... but some extremists believe that humanity is an inferior race that should be subjugated. However, this is just their default version; at least one campaign setting (for ''D20 Future'') has them as conspirators implied to be plotting to conquer Earth.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

A variant is much taller and more slim proportioned and somewhat more human in the face. Often used when they're meant to be less mysterious and more human to interact with.

** 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.
