# [[InnocentAliens Peaceful aliens]] will be met with fear and greed, as humans try to kidnap, interrogate, dissect them, etc. They'll usually think the aliens want to attack. Said aliens may gain one or two human friends (the main characters) but most of the human race is shown to be primitive fools. HumansAreMorons and HumansKillWantonly. It is a {{Subtrope}} of MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold with its own flavor. Incidentally, this trope is a staple element of at least some parts of ufology, among those who believe in it.

** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E12ArmyOfGhosts "Army of Ghosts"]] demonstrates a variation whereby the visitors are not aliens but [[spoiler:{{Killer Robot}}s called Cybermen]] from a ParallelUniverse, being deliberately brought to ours by the Torchwood institute. (In the first act of the episode, the [[spoiler:Cybermen]] take on a "ghostly" appearance and do not speak). During the period where the visitors are assumed to be friendly, humans call them "[[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghosts]]", and many even think they really are the silent spirits of their deceased loved ones. The Doctor says "No one's running, screaming, freaking out", to which Jackie responds "Why should we?" Correct answer, for the GenreSavvy: ''Because you aren't, which means they're probably dangerous''. There was a great line at the end of that episode.

* In the cartoon ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', some aliens landed saying "we come in peace," and Garfield observed that any aliens who say that are actually evil invaders. [[GenreSavvy His prediction was correct.]]

** FromACertainPointOfView, the Yuuzhan Vong ''do'' come in peace. The closest translation for "peace" in the Yuuzhan Vong language is "appropriate submission of the conquered to the conqueror."

A subversion of IComeInPeace. Aliens who try this should read HowToInvadeAnAlienPlanet.

* In ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'', the first part of the trope name is a BerserkButton for T'Kuvma, who believes that the Federation are liars, who claim to come in peace, while aiming to assimilate all cultures they come across, including the Klingons. To him and his followers, claiming to "come in peace", while seeking to undermine what it means to be a Klingon, is a bold-faced lie. He manages to rally most of the Great Houses under his banner, while chanting "Remain Klingon!" Michael Burnham is the only one who thinks that this approach to Klingons is wrong, having been told by her foster father Sarek that Vulcans have learned to open fire on Klingon ships at every encounter in order to initiate a dialog (the so-called "Vulcan hello"). She wants to do the same, against her captain's orders, not realizing that T'Kuvma intends to start a war no matter who fires first.

** [[spoiler: It was later revealed that they're a pretty decent beings in a more modern and industrialized but diverse society in their home planet Zeelich. However their religion and prophecy are controlled by, as revealed near the end of the game, Funfrock, the BigBad of the first game.]]
