* HilariousInHindsight: Although already funny (and/or infuriating) at the time if you knew anything about real history, science or basic logic, watching a rerun from becomes ''really'' funny as the "experts" ominously go on about the predicted Mayan apocalypse/end of the world/return of the aliens/whatever if you happen to be watching it after December 21st, 2012, the day nothing unusual happened.

too. Alien made hybrids of humans and something else.
** Or they're [[InsaneTrollLogic SHAPESHIFTING aliens, which is why we can't find them: they're disguised as humans.]]]]
** [[MultipleChoicePast OR]] they are the natural creatures who evolved on Earth and humans are the engineered hybrids. Bigfoot hides because we scare it.

* ShoutOut: One theory mentioned a few times but never really discussed seriously is the idea aliens come to Earth to hunt the most dangerous predators on the planet, [[{{Film/Predator}} humans]].

* LostTechnology: A number of artifacts, like the [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antikythera_mechanism Antikythera mechanism]], are claimed to be this. Alternately, several ancient sites, especially [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pumapunku Pumapunku]], were made using Lost Technology.

* AllMythsAreTrue: Albeit aliens were involved with all of them. Yes, ''all'' of them--an episode involving the {{Crystal Skull}}s (which have been thoroughly debunked) explored the idea of them having mystical science powers or alien knowledge encoded in them, and somehow managed to link them to the Nazis, {{Atlantis}}, the Dali Lama, and Native American mythos. That's just how absurd the show can be when it tries. A 2014 commercial for the series even directly states "Aliens were part of everything. Now you know."
** They will occasionally admit that mainstream (read: real) archaeologists have an answer for the "mystery," or that some of the claims have been proved hoaxes ({{crystal skull}}s, }}crop circles}}). It's usually followed immediately with something like "But ancient astronaut theorists have a different, more profound, explanation."

* BlatantLies: The ''entire'' show. All the lies and deception are picked apart by ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9w-i5oZqaQ Ancient Aliens Debunked]]''. Notable is presenting 19th and 20th century New Age texts as ancient texts, deliberate mistranslations, deliberately presenting false dates, not citing actual sources, quote mining, cherry picking data, and presenting hoaxes as true (such as the infamous Crystal Skulls). All and all, the show is one big ''lie'' that is getting far, far too much attention.

** They also seem to believe there is no such thing as true genius. As mentioned above, anyone who had radical ideas (Leonardo, Einstein, von Braun) must have been influenced by aliens. They never seem to consider the possibility that these people were visionaries who benefited mankind with their own brainpower.
