* [[spoiler:A deleted scene confirms this: A nightmare the Giant has, stemming from his damaged programming, reveals he is only one of an entire ''fleet'' of giants, built by an unknown alien race ostensibly for the purpose of being the vanguard to invasion.]]

* 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.]]

* In the ''Literature/ConfederationOfValor'' series, the Others began attacking the Confederation centuries ago. The Confederation sent diplomats to point out that SpaceIsBig and there was plenty of room for both situations; the Others sent back the dead diplomats with a bomb. [[spoiler:Actually, the Others, who call themselves the Primacy, had the exact same experience with the Confederation. Both sides were being manipulated, and peace efforts sabotaged, by a HigherTechSpecies as a giant sociology experiment. Once this is discovered by protagonist Torin Kerr and other inmates of an alien POWCamp in book four, they bury the hatchet with the Primacy.]]

* In the backstory of the ''Literature/KrisLongknife'' series, the humans and Iteeche first encountered each other when the Iteeche attacked outlying colonies without warning. After a bloody border conflict the two species agreed to ignore each other and established [[TheNeutralZone a demilitarized zone that neither was allowed to fly through]]. That's the official story on both sides anyway: [[spoiler:What ''really'' happened was that the attacks went in both directions, having been committed by ''Iteeche and human SpacePirates''. These pirates then lied to their respective governments when reaction forces moved in to defend the colonies. After figuring out what was really going on, Ray Longknife and Roth'sum'We'sum'Quin managed to make contact with each other and negotiate TheNeutralZone, and the two species went their separate ways, [[NotSoDifferent all the while with both their respective publics convinced that the other side had intended their extermination and they had survived by the skin of their teeth]].]]

* Played with in ''Film/EarthVsTheFlyingSaucers''. The aliens want to make peaceful contact, but only to negotiate the surrender of a VichyEarth, as conquering Earth by force is not in their interests.

The military in turn fire on their FlyingSaucer when it lands in the middle of an army base, having not understood their signal asking for a meeting (because it was transmitted at the wrong speed).

* 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.
