* ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' and its parent, ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' have the Zentraedi, a race of giants who later reveal they can "micronize" to become our size. They send a team of spies into the SDF-1, which backfires horribly for their PlanetOfHats culture.

** ''{{Transformers}}'' in general is clearly in the same spirit. While most Transformers disguise themselves as vehicles rather than people,, the principle is the same... Any car on the road or plane in the sky could be a robot in disguise. One of them could be in your driveway ''right now''. And that's just the rank and file; it's been shown that they've branched out and there are Transformers who are capable of becoming all sorts of things you might have ''insude'' the house as well, like a camera, a microscope, a wristwatch, or a computer not terribly different from the one you're looking at right now. That monitor you're staring into? It could be ''staring back''.

* ''[[VideoGame/TheThing The Thing 2002]]'' has this as a gameplay mechanic. By using a syringe and a chemical that reacts to blood by releasing heat, you can test your party members for infection. If the syringe changes from red to brown, they're A-O-K, but if the syringe breaks, fry him, he's an alien, and mutating into a beastie as we speak.

* This has always been the approach of the [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Skrulls]], the antagonistic alien race found in MarvelComics, but most of all in the SecretInvasion CrisisCrossover.

* The formless JAM in ''SentouYouseiYukikaze''. In the anime, they start by copying Earth's technology (namely weapons and aircraft) before later moving onto human beings themselves.

* Inverted in ''MartianSuccessorNadesico'', when the Jovians -- frequently referred to as "lizards" for much of the first half of the series and depicted as monstrous nonhumans in government propaganda -- turn out to actually be humans, forgotten colonists from Earth.

* Flavor text from TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil tells us that in the analysis of [[TheMenInBlack Task Force: Valkyrie]], werewolves and other shifters are a much greater national security threat than other supernatural creatures. Vampires have known limitations, and mages have difficulty using spells in public, but the Uratha look completely normal until they walk into a secure area and turn into eight-foot-tall killing machines.
