* In the final episode of ''Series/SpaceAboveAndBeyond'', the Chig ambassador claims that his species evolved on Earth before humans did, but left before the atmosphere became suited to oxygen-breathing life (the Chigs are methane-breathers).

* In the final episode of ''Series/SpaceAboveAndBeyond'', the Chig ambassador claims that his species evolved on Earth before humans did, but left before the atmosphere became suited to oxygen-breathing life (the Chigs are methane-breathers). Well, specifically, the Chigs evolved from humble anaerobic ''bacteria'' that evolved on ancient Earth, who then got spread to space by an asteroid impact, then meteorites created from the impact eventually spread to another solar system, where they continued to evolve. Consider that there was a gap of billions of years between when anaerobic bacteria evolved and when complex multicellular life evolved. Technically their DNA line is billions of years older than ours, but much of this was spent as just frozen bacteria spores on meteorites for billions of years after that, so in the present day they're roughly at the same evolutionary level as we are.



* ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'': The {{Precursor|s}} race known as The Ones Who Came Before co-evolved with what would become modern humans, but dominated them with their superior technology and physical capabilities. They died out due to underpopulation after a great catastrophe, but left a legacy in the form of their DNA mingled with humanity's.

* ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'': The {{Precursor|s}} race known as The Ones Who Came Before co-evolved Before, or "First Civilization". They more or less looked like humans, but had triple-helix DNA and a sixth sense. They didn't just evolve before humans - they took primate races and artificially uplifted them using genetic engineering to serve their needs as a slave race. Basically, imagine if modern humans took chimpanzees and genetically uplifted them into near-humans. Subsequent conspiracies then filled in the fossil record gap this created with what would become fabrications (i.e. we really jumped straight from ''Homo erectus'' to anatomically modern humans, but then they filled in the missing links). They then dominated them humans with their superior technology and physical capabilities. They died out due to underpopulation capabilities. A slave revolt greatly depopulated them, after which a great catastrophe, but catastrophic natural disaster finished off those who were left a (ironically preventing them from saving the planet, including the nascent human civilization on it). Humanity survived but got dialed back to hunter-gatherers and forgot their origins. The legacy of the First Civilization lives on, however, in the form of their DNA mingled with humanity's.some human bloodlines.

* In ''Literature/TheStressOfHerRegard'', the novel's "vampires" are actually a form of silicon-based life that had dominated the Earth in the ''very'' distant past, but had gone dormant when organic life became prevalent. They'd still be little more than inert rock, had a bizarre human experiment not managed to revive them.
