* 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).

* The Wiki/SCPFoundation plays with this in the form of [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti SCP-]][[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-1000 1000]]. They were the dominant species on Earth before humanity. Then humanity destroyed their civilization and wiped its own memory of those events through an unspecified means. Now the SCP-1000 want to be "let back in."

* The Wiki/SCPFoundation plays Several examples from the Wiki/SCPFoundation:
** Played
with this in the form of [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti SCP-]][[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-1000 1000]]. They were the dominant species on Earth before humanity. Then humanity destroyed their civilization and wiped its own memory of those events through an unspecified means. Now the SCP-1000 want to be "let back in.""
** As it turns out, turnabout is fair play. [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2932 SCP-2932]] claims that the "Children of the Night" had previously overthrown a race known as the [[TheFairFolk Fae]].
** Unrelated to any of the above, [[StarfishAliens SCP]]-[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2735 2735]] was the dominant lifeform on Earth billions of years ago, until oxygen-breathing life came along.

* Another story by Asimov, "Hostess", is based on the idea that [[spoile:the aging process]] is due to [[spoiler:humanity being possessed by some kind of pure mind parasitic species. They can also infect alien races, which don't normally age... and die within a year once infected. Apparently, there is something about an alien mind that makes it worth the experience, even considering the risks of crossing interstellar distances without a starship.]]

* ''[[VideoGame/{{TalesOfMajEyal}} Tales of Maj'Eyal]]'' has the Sher'Tul, who were a mysterious {{Precursor|s}} race with advanced technology and magic that are, to this day, very poorly understood by the current races that reside on Eyal. [[spoiler: They initiated a crusade against the Gods and drove the Gods to virtual extiction. They then disappeared for unknown reasons, but there are references InUniverse that "the Sher'Tul are not gone, just hiding".]]

The ultraterrestials are an alien race that, well, isn't all too alien. In fact, they originate from Earth, just like us humans, but their civilization is so much older and more advanced than ours that they have no trouble hiding from us ([[TheWorldIsNotReady for whatever reason]]). The term was coined by the ufologist John Keel in his ''Operation Trojan Horse'' in 1970, wherein he claims that the [=UFO=]s, various supernatural phenomena (like {{the Mothman| prophecies}}), and [[AllMythsAreTrue religious myths]] imply the activity of an almighty High EnergyBeing co-existing with humans on Earth.
