* In ''Franchise/StarCraft'' first contact consisted of a Protoss fleet sterilizing a Terran colony whose inhabitants hadn't realized their world was infested with Zerg. There was some later peaceful cooperation between some Terran and Protoss factions, even Zerg for short periods of time.

* Played With in ''Literature/WeKnewTheyWereComing''. The aliens really ''are'' hostile conquerors, but humanity had no way of knowing that when we fired first. Basically all they had done was clear orbit of all debris and satellites (leaving the ISS) before settling into orbit themselves, and not answering radio calls.

** When the kett first encountered the angara in ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', the angara were still reeling from the Scourge cutting off so many of their colony worlds, resulting in the destruction of a large majority of their history. The kett gifted them with knowledge, resources, and the like, and when the angaran's guard was down, they suddenly began abducting and killing them.

* 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."

** Probably explains why the Level80EliteTaurenChieftain song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUqG5gB8nbI Terran Up the Night]] includes the line "You come in peace, well, I come in war!"

* 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.

* 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.
