* The Esmers in ''[[LittleBigAdventure Little Big Adventure 2: Twinsen's Odyssey]]''. Their catchphrase: "Greeting Twinsunian! We are your friends. We come in peace. Have trust in your friendship!" is so suspiciously harmless that it is really no surprise when they turn out to be not so nice after all. The fact that they fire guns at you from behind newspapers and even dress up as cacti and trash cans to shoot at you further exemplifies this.

Added DiffLines:

* James Kirk didn't really say "We come in peace -- shoot to kill", but in "Spectre of the Gun" he told the Melkotians "We come in peace," drew and aimed his phaser and said "But we'll defend ourselves if necessary."

* Happens with the Pitar in Creator/AlanDeanFoster's books set in the HumanxCommonwealth. They were so human in their appearance and character, so charming and affable, that Humanity went head over heels about them. Any suspicions were either ignored in this wave of enthusiasm, or quietly swept under the rug. Until the news got out (complete with gory footage) about a peaceful and unarmed colony utterly obliterated by the Pitar invasion fleet. Humans were ''not'' amused.

* Captain Picard normally strictly adheres to the [[AlienNonInterferenceClause Prime Directive]]. In fact, violating it is a bit of a BerserkButton for him. So naturally, when he has to visit a primitive inhabited world in ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'', he makes an effort avoid contact with the natives. It fails spectacularly, and Picard, Worf, and Data find themselves in a high-speed gun battle with the locals. Adding insult to injury, they also give the natives their first look at a real-life spaceship while the away team makes their getaway.

** Justified as this particular dimension has no concept of "evil" and just accepted the ridiculously BlatantLies they were told even after the initial slaughter.
* This is one of the two strategies of the invading Martians in ''IrregularWebcomic'', as explained in [[http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/2413.html this strip,]] and the strip annotation references this very page.

* In [[ArchieComics Archie's]] ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'', humans dissecting the occupant of a downed Xorda spacecraft caused the entire race to launch genetic bombs at the Earth, thus killing off most humans and causing evolutionary mutation that led to our furry friends, the Mobians, becoming a dominant species along with the human-like Overlanders.

* Played with in ''Literature/HaloContactHarvest''. First contact between humanity and the Covenant happened between a group of Marines and Jiralhanae ([[MeaningfulName a.k.a.]] [[ReportingNames Brutes]]). The Jiralhanae are making unreasonable demands during the negotiations, but that's not what starts the Human-Covenant War. Instead, it was a trigger-happy Grunt.
