Green-Skinned Space Babe
"Just once, I want to be captured by the sexy alien!"
— Dr. Rodney McKay, Stargate AtlantisAn exotic yet attractive female alien, tending to look exactly like an attractive female human except for odd coloring and a couple minor features added. A Weird Science staple, usually coming from a Sensuous Culture. Usually involves Non-Mammal Mammaries. To further accentuate the Fanservice, they also tend to wear Stripperiffic clothing, often justified by saying that in their native culture it's as ordinary as shirts and pants (or dresses) are for us. See also Boldly Coming. May overlap with Cute Monster Girl. They need not actually be green, and blue seems to be a more prominent color nowadays (presumably due to Little Green Men becoming a Dead Horse Trope). One big reason green and blue are favorite skin-colors for otherwise-human aliens, according to most creators, is because there's no Real Life human equivalent among human ethnic groups, thus eliminating any chance of Unfortunate Implications when aliens are depicted. (Skin color alone can't be seen as a subtle attack on any real minority.) Warning: There may be some disagreements as to who will carry any children resulting from the union.

Anime and Manga
- The Mazones of Captain Harlock are an entire race of these. They're also Plant Aliens and at least one Half-Human Hybrid exists.
- Dragon Ball has Zangya, and the advent of Dragonball Online brought us the Majin race and several pink skinned space babes.
- Martian Successor Nadesico parodies this trope by introducing Aquamarine, a cookie-cutter character of exactly this type in the Show Within a Show Gekiganger 3. The protagonist Akito immediately identifies her as his dream girl, but when he finally meets a young woman with a similar name (just "Aqua") who appears superficially similar, she turns out to be a borderline psychotic with suicidal tendencies.
- En from Sailor Moon qualifies. Her male partner Al is just as pretty and green.
- Melda Deltz from Space Battleship Yamato 2199.
- Super Dimension Fortress Macross features a Green Haired Space Babe: Miria Fallyna falls in love with her target after losing to him in battle then seeking him out to defeat him on board the ship. He runs into her at an arcade where he defeats her in a video game. He misunderstands her intentions and asks her on a date at which she tries to kill him with a knife. He wins again and she breaks down since he's the first person she's never been able to beat. Notably, among all the similarities between Macross and the other two series' used to make Robotech is that all three of them have a green-haired alien girl who ends up falling for one of the good guys: Musica in Southern Cross and Sara in Mospeada.
- Xavin of Runaways achieved this with their female Skrull form. Xavin's lover Karolina 'L.S.D.' Dean is a Iridescent/Psychedelic-Skinned Space Babe in her own right.
- Gamora, who fits this trope to a tee, right down to the, ah, appetite. She's also immortal, an assassin, and recognized as "the most dangerous woman in the galaxy".
- Mantis◊ of The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Something of an inversion, as she was originally a normal human who, through alien foster care and Because Destiny Says So, was chosen as the Celestial Madonna and developing Psychic Powers.
- Top 10:
- Used delightfully but deceptively in the form of retired heroine/alien pornstar M'rgalla Qualtz, the Vigilante from Venus, whose true form turned out to be a huge green insect thing that had to kill and eat people at certain stages in its life-cycle.
- "Girl One" is an artificial human with chameleon skin and a genetically ingrained compulsion to stay naked. Ditto her replacement, Girl 54.
- Fantastic Four:
- Lyja is another example of an attractive female Skrull, who Johnny Storm fell in love with after he got over the whole Skrull thing. Johnny married her when he thought she was human (Skrulls are shapeshifters) but the two fell in love even after the truth came out. In the Marvel Comics 2 universe they are still married and have a son, Torus.
- Long before that, in the early Lee/Kirby era, there was an instance of mutual attraction between Johnny and the Skrull princess Anelle (who later became Hulkling's mother because of a tryst with Captain Mar-Vell. And during the Byrne era, he was by no means immune to the charms of green-skinned Earth babe She-Hulk. Who later would hang out with the sexy Skrull bounty-hunter Jazinda.
- De'Lila is a Skrull Space Babe who can also hypnotise you.
- Teen Titans:
- Starfire first appeared as a hot alien babe with orange skin, who learned languages by kissing people. Her general lack of modesty is often used for copious Fanservice, and even her normal hero outfit leaves little to the imagination.
- Miss Martian, who in an interesting twist is actually a White Martian and monstrously inhuman and hideous in her true form. Think "albino xenomorph".
- Alflyse, queen of the Dark Elves from The Incredible Hercules. Delphyne Gorgon, Amadeus Cho's love interest, who is also a Gorgeous Gorgon.
- Parodied in Heater Delight, space "commodity" and sometimes-girlfriend of Marvel's Starfox.
- Jimmy Olsen had Forager for a love interest Alien babe.
- The Green Lantern Corps being what it is, there are plenty of Green Skinned Space Babes to go around: Katma Tui, Soranik Natu and Arisia Rrab, for example. Kraken started as a literal example, complete with midriff-baring outfit, although her conversion into an Alpha Lantern made her much less attractive.
- Princess Arkashia, a one-shot character from Empowered, with whom not-yet-Protean sleeps with, catches an alien STD and thus turns from a human into the Blob Monster we know him as.
- Belgian comic book series Yoko Tsuno features the Vineans, of which the protagonist character is Khany◊. They all look like this.
- In the Ice Sword saga in the Italian Mickey Mouse comics, Goofy is chosen to awaken a sleeping princess who has been sent by a shooting star. He first imagines her as a human Princess Classic, but when he finally sees her, he is surprised to see that she is a green-skinned, noseless alien with gigantic bug-like (though cartoony) eyes... Despite this, he still finds her cute.
- The Tenth Doctor's companion Majenta from the Doctor Who Magazine comics.
- Tanga, a lavender-skinned space babe super heroine created by Kevin Maguire for the comic book Weird Worlds and My Greatest Adventure.
- Being what it is, Legion of Super-Heroes has had a few over the years. Foremost among them is Shadow Lass/Umbra, a blue-skinned space babe.
- The water girl in King City is a blue, tentacle-haired, tailed water-breather, but looks otherwise like a cute human woman.
- Marvel Star Wars: The Falleen (green, but red when excited), who in addition to all being drop-dead gorgeous have powerful sex pheromones under conscious control that work on nearly all humanoid species.
- Paperinik New Adventures has some Xerbian women. Some because Xerbians look like green-skinned humans, so there's no guarantee they'll be gorgeous. Then again, when they look good they look good, as proven by Xado and Xalya◊.
- Warlord of Mars: The Martian peoples come in 5 distinctive flavors: red, green, white, black and yellow. With the exception of the Green Martians, who are monstrous Humanoid Aliens with two pairs of arms and giant tusks, all others resemble humans very closely except for their skin color and are considered very alluring and handsome due to being dressed only with leather harnesses and gold ornaments and nothing else.
- Although the White Martians look like Caucasian humans, while Black Martians look more like grey-skinned humanoids than resembling actually ethnic Black people.
- A Crown Of Stars: Parodied and invoked using the trope's name in chapter 5. When Daniel mentions her wife, Asuka asks if she is an alien or a "green skinned space babe".
“That’s an unusual name,” Asuka said in a low voice. “Is she from some exotic planet of your wild space empire? A green skinned space babe? It’d be the perfect capper to today’s weirdness.”
- The Kerbal Space Program fandom has had a great deal of fun with this trope:
- Parodied in this fancomic.
- An ambitious and apparently rather promising fanfiction project called "Postcards From Laythe" was forcibly ejected from the official forums over some illustrations that played this trope very straight.
- The Next Frontier and its semi-prequel First Flight invert the trope with a couple of joking references to "pink-skinned space babes". Then the Kerbals make First Contact and find some.
- Star Wars:
- Female Twi'leks are known for their beauty, and often exploited due to it. They come in green, blue, red, and other interesting hues. The first Twilek female was seen in Return of the Jedi, Oola, Jabba the Hutt's ill-fated dancing girl who ends up Rancor chow.
- Sebulba has a pair of female Twi'leks that he uses as his personal servants. They act as his massagers but more importantly, simply as a status symbol. (Meaning he has them with him in public to flaunt his wealth.)
- Aayla Secura was a female Twi'lek who first appeared in the prequels (blue skinned), but a subversion among her species; she was attractive, but was a female Jedi, and very much a serious Action Girl. (Sadly, she was one of many Jedi murdered in Revenge of the Sith.)
- The Star Wars Expanded Universe has the Zeltron (magenta-skinned), who are perfectly aware of their attractive appearance and flaunt it. Some sources also claim they have mild pheromones, but not to the degree of the Falleen. They have a reputation (mostly deserved) as cheerful hedonists who'll do Anything That Moves. In a bit of a subversion both genders are like this and male Zeltrons look like (magenta-skinned) handsome human men.
- Star Trek (2009). Kirk appears in bed with Uhura's roommate, an Orion girl named Gaila, who has been told off by Uhura before about bringing men back to their quarters. At least one other appeared in the film. Uhura, however, is not, despite being played by Zoe Saldana, the current face of this trope.
- Guardians of the Galaxy:
- Gamora, green-skinned assassin and love interest. Still a babe (just not one that shows as much skin as in the comics), still just as lethal.
- Nebula is a blue-skinned space pirate.
- Ophelia Lovibond plays a pink-skinned assistant to the Collector.
- Rhomann Dey's wife, and consequently, their daughter, are fuchsia, as is Bereet, Peter's one night stand.
- Blue-skinned women run a Lady Land society in the 60's B-Movie Missile to the Moon. Only in the colorized version, this originally being a B&W film. The GSSB attitude was there from the beginning, though.
- Avatar has the Na'vi, male and female. Appropriately, the main character falls in love with and has sex with one of them.
- Male example in Earth Girls Are Easy. We have Blue, Red, and Yellow Alien Space Hunks in the forms of Jim Carrey, Jeff Goldblum and Damon Wayans. But only when their body fur is shaved off.
- Jay muses about this in Clerks II.
"You know, sometimes I wish I did a little more with my life instead of hanging out in front of places selling weed and shit. Like, maybe be an animal doctor. Why not me? I like seals and shit. Or maybe an astronaut. Yeah. Like, be the first motherfucker to see a new galaxy, or find a new alien lifeform... and fuck it. And people'd be like, "There he goes. Homeboy fucked a Martian once."
- Another male example: Loki's true Jotun form in Thor, down to the weird exception-to-the-species factor often seen only in female examples. The rest of the Jotuns are hulking, craggy monsters; in the brief glimpses we see of Loki's Jotun form, he looks the same as ever except for having swirl-patterned blue skin and vaguely luminescent red eyes.
- Dejah Thoris of the John Carter of Mars series is a red-skinned space babe; apart from that, she may be the ur-example.
- Though not portrayed as sexy (she is from a book written in 1897 by a German science teacher), the Martian La from Auf zwei Planeten (Two Planets) by Kurd Laßwitz is shown as attractive. She has large eyes that change color and reddish-blond hair. She ends up marrying Earthman Josef Saltner.
- In the Viagens Interplanetarias cycle by L. Sprague de Camp, one of the prominent planets, Krishna, is populated by a humanoid species that happens to be sexually compatible with humans (though matings won't result in offspring). Some of them wear nothing but jewellery and body paint. Needless to say, one of the human characters gets to seduce a local princess. De Camp knew exactly how unlikely this would be, but wanted to write swashbuckling, two-fisted adventure stories but in space, and worked very hard to come up with a setting that would let him get away with this, without being as utterly stupid as the premise of the John Carter of Mars series. The biological difficulties are frequently lampshaded, and provide a fair amount of the comedy in the series.
- A short story by James Tiptree, Your Haploid Heart, features an outwardly humanoid and physically seductive human species (the Flenni), but the problem is that they happen to be just a phase in a complex reproductive cycle, and their post-coitum lifespan is counted in weeks.
- The Queen of Perelandra is her world's Eve, and thus the first of many Green Skinned Space Babes to appear on Venus... and, although nude, she's shielded from the protagonist by an aura of innocence.
- The Taysans in the Spaceforce books look more or less like humans, except that their skin is silver. Although Ashlenn, the most beautiful of the Taysan female characters, is from a minority ethnic group and is golden instead.
- Fyana, in John Maddox Roberts's Stormlands series, is a Blue-Skinned Post-Apocalyptic Mutant Babe.
- In The Demon Princes, cosmetic dying is widely used, making Pallis Atwrode a literal example of the trope. (She's also a Sexy Secretary).
- S.L. Viehl's Jorenians—found in the Stardoc 'verse—are an entire race of seven-foot-tall, built-like-a-brick-whatever Blue-Skinned Space Hotties. (However, one should watch out for Accidental Marriages.)
- Edmond Hamilton's Starwolf features Vreya, a pale-gold skinned Amazonian Beauty.
- Rish and the rest of the Jewels in Captain Vorpatril's Alliance are a Transhuman Aliens variation. They're a set of technicolor genetically modified siblings with colorful skin, pointy ears, enhanced senses, and great strength and agility. And they're professional dancers.
- In the Eldraeverse, while eldrae skin tone most commonly varies between cream and copper, there is a small minority with skin translucent enough to qualify as the pale blue variety. Having blue blood, and all.
- Irsil and her race of Nauticae in Mission: Levity are Blue Skinned Space Babes. They are amphibious, have a tentacled head and scaly skin (that needs to be kept moist, so they often wear tight-fitting latex suits to that end).
- Olwen Pendennis in The Keeper of the Isis Light by Monica Hughes.
Live Action TV
- Star Trek:
- The Trope Namer is literal Green Skinned Space Babe Vina, played by the late actress and director Susan Oliver, all the way back in "The Cage", the first Star Trek: The Original Series pilot. Well, the green Orion slave girl was one of the guises that her character took, at least. (Interestingly enough, it was the one Pike was almost certainly going to fall for, before stuff happened.) The sexy Orion slave girl look is reprised in the episode "Whom Gods Destroy" by the beautiful Yvonne Craig.
- TOS also featured a Green-Haired Space Babe in the person of Shahna the Drill Thrall, in the episode "The Gamesters of Triskelion." Her ignorance of kissing is possibly the original source of another trope, What Is This Thing You Call Love?, applied to space aliens; she requested another example from Kirk to broaden her sample set.
- Jadzia Dax (the spots go all the way down). More intellectual than the usual Space Babe, but sexy as hell and perfectly willing to indulge her sensual side (her prior male host was a Dirty Old Man, and it seems the libido carried over). Her species (the Trill) had been previously established in the TNG episode "The Host", with both male and female having bumpy foreheads and no spots. Actress Terry Farrell was supposed to appear in DS9 in similar makeup, but one of the writers took one look at a production photo of Farrell with the forehead bumps and said, quote, "What did you do to her head, she used to be beautiful?" so they gave her spots instead, and thus an entire species was retconned simply because a makeup prosthetic looked unflattering on Terry Farrell's face.
- Enterprise has the blue-skinned Andorian Action Girl Talas — Commander Shran's Number Two.
- Mocked on Frasier, when Noel attempts to immortalize Roz by making her a character in the Star Trek universe.
- Sheppard from Stargate Atlantis usually gets the space babe, so in the episode "Harmony", Rodney demands the first chance at the eponymous princess, but then he discovers that she is age 13 and a Royal Brat. In this case they tend to be Transplanted Humans (although one is an Ancient).
McKay: What is with you and ascended women?
- Stargate SG-1 episode "Wormhole X-Treme" lampshaded this in a show within the show.
- The Wild Wild West episode "The Night of the Flying Pie Plate" features several literal Green Skinned Space Babes—at least until it's discovered that they're human women painted green as part of a con game.
- Mentioned in Red Dwarf by a Genre Savvy Lister:
- A literal green skinned space babe was in Lost in Space. She had a crush on Dr. Smith, who had to use her to find out where to get fuel for their stranded ship. And ironically, her name is Athena.
- Space Cases had Elmyra, who became the love interest for the Human Alien Radu.
- Aside from the Sebaceans, Farscape lived this trope - if the aliens weren't actually portrayed by Jim Henson puppets, they were certainly as weird-looking and brightly-coloured as possible. Regular characters include Zhaan (scaly-looking, blue from head to toe, as her frequent casual nudity will attest, and a Planimal), Chiana (entirely grey-white, and a nymphomaniac to boot), Jool (human-esque, although with forehead ridges, bright green eyes and giant bushes of hair that changes color when she's angry), and Sikozu (Caucasian-colored skin with fish scale-like patterns, red hair, and teal eyes). Chiana's race, the Nebari (or at least the Nebari most likely to be encountered by other races), seem to have this as their hat, for both the males and females. They're almost all free-love hippie drifters who have no problem at all with casual sex and sometimes have problems with fidelity and settling down. This turns out to be an evil plan by the Nebari government.
- Andromeda has Trance Gemini. She's a purple skinned space babe. With a tail.
- Doctor Who:
- Fairly rare in the Classic series due to the relative difficulty of sexy alien makeup as opposed to just having sexy Human Alien characters, but there's still a few, like Eldraad's humanoid form and the entire Thal species (also including sexy alien men).
- Quite a few examples in the revival series, including Chantho and Jabe - the former has mandibles and the latter is technically an Earth-descended humanoid tree. The revival also has (male and female) Silurians for those not put off by scales, in stark contrast to their appearance in the original series.
- All of the aliens Tracy Morgan meets in his "Astronaut Jones" sketches on Saturday Night Live.
- Defiance has the Castithans who are a race of white skinned aliens. To be more specific is Stahma Tarr.
- "Little Space Girl", the one-hit wonder by Jesse Lee Turner, is probably the original Green Skinned Space Babe anthem.
She's got four arms (the better to hold you)
three lips (the better to kiss you)
four eyes (all the better to see)
* "My Alien", from Simple Plan:She has two arms to hold me
Four legs to wrap around me
She's not your typical girlfriend...
- Jamiroquai's "Cosmic Girl":
Step into my transporter
So I can teleport ya
All around my heavenly body
- The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band's "Beautiful Zelda" (though in their TV performance she seems to be a rather boxy Robot Girl).
She's broken all the super-hearts
Of the super-heroes of the galaxy
So why does she want to
Mess around with me?
Beautiful Zelda from Galaxy Four
Suddenly walked through my door
- Martian Girl! by The Aquabats!
Well, Here's a story that must be told
It's kinda new, not very old
About a female Martian with a wild grin,
Big orange eyes, and green skin
Blue was her hair
She came from way up there
She wore silver underwear
Almost naked but she didn't care
- Katy Perry plays a white skinned space babe in her video for E.T.
- Devo's "Space-Girl Blues," a song from their demo period which was covered by Toni Basil. The lyrics were inspired by an issue of DC's Mystery in Space.
Space girls are as cold as ice
They'll kiss you once and kiss you twice
You'll shiver, shake, and then turn blue
Then you've got the space girl blues
I want your mechanism!
Give me your mechanism!
- The video for "Spaceship" by Puddle of Mudd has a few.
- True to the television series, Data East's Star Trek includes a green-skinned Orion slave girl on the playfield.
- Big Bang Bar has green-skinned space babes, blue-skinned space babes, orange-skinned space babes...
- The original backglass art for Devil's Dare featured various green-skinned demonic succubi lounging around the score displays.
- As in the movie, Avatar have the blue-skinned Na'vi.
- The Evil Sorceress of Ruiner Pinball has dark violet skin and neon green hair and eyes.
- Embryon has the player incubate bald multicolored alien women from organic pods.
- Warhammer 40,000:
- The Eldar are sometimes depicted as this trope. Other depictions however have them be absurdly tall and bony by human standards, with intensely narrow faces (for reference, those two images are supposed to be the same character). In any case it's very unlikely they'd be involved with any humans, as most humans and most Eldar would consider it bestiality.
- The Tau females are in a similar situation. Males are gaunt and very distinct from human, but the official fluff is somewhat conflicting as to whether or not female tau are attractive by human standards (not that most humans would admit to the heresy of being attracted to xeno scum). It certainly doesn't stop fan-artists in any way◊.
- Nazzadi women from Cthulhu Tech are often treated as such by the artists on this project; go through the books and try to find one Nazzadi female who isn't Stripperiffic. The fact that they have no nudity taboo doesn't help matters.
- Female Lashunta in Pathfinder. The Lashunta are a species of Rubber-Forehead Aliens from the setting's equivalent of Venus (which, in proper Planetary Romance fashion, is a lush jungle world). The women resemble beautiful humanoid women with insect antennae, while the men are short, hairy, and unprepossessing (but badass). Both genders are psychic.
- Julandri Courtesans and the Silthuri from Rocket Age both qualify, despite the fact that they are copper-skinned and hairless. They also excrete pheremones that enhance this effect.
- Talana, the Syreen commandress from Star Control II, is a textbook example (she even comes from a whole race composed mostly of beautiful blue-skinned women). Given the tone of the game, this is heavily lampshaded.
- Psyme, one of your two possible Love Interests from Sigma Star Saga, is a Purple-Skinned Space Babe.
- Elerians, one of the playable races of Master of Orion 2, are purple and blue-skinned space babes (the males of the species are never seen).
- Space Quest V: Flo is a subversion. Sure, she's a humanoid female who's green... but as for the 'babe' bit, Flo looks to be in her forties!
- A common enemy in Redneck Rampage is just that; leather clad sadomasochistic big-breasted green/blue/red skinned alien babes who seem very interested in tying up and/or getting beat up by the redneck main characters. Arguably a parody of the trope, as despite claiming to love you they'll just kill you dead unless you kill them first.
- Mass Effect:
Liara: Adolescent males have an unhealthy obsession with my people.
- The asari are one of the most blatant examples, with The Art of Mass Effect explicitly stating they were designed from the beginning to be sexy aliens, and one of the first conversations you can have with your asari squadmate in the first game is how her species mates. Not only are they a One-Gender Race that look near-identical to human women despite all other aliens being drastically different, not only can the player character enter a relationship with one of them regardless of Shepard's gender, not only are they considered desirable by nearly all species in the known galaxy, but they can mate with and produce offspring with any sapient individual regardless of gender or species (though granted, sex isn't necessary for reproduction). Liara mentions all of this:
- There's one asari, Shiala, who is literally green-skinned, provided she survives the events of the first game - her skin pigment changed a few months after Shepard's mission to Feros. If the rest of the Feros colony survived as well, she even flirts with Shepard. And there's a scene where a turian, salarian, and human are watching an Asari dancer and they all think that she looks like their species, leading to the Fan Wank/Epileptic Trees that they have some sort of mind-control going on to make them seem attractive to all species.
- Thane, a drell, is a rare male example. Bonus points for being specifically designed to invoke this trope and appeal to the female fans.
- Mass Effect 3 finally resolves what Quarians look like underneath their masks, but only if you've romanced Tali and make sure the quarian fleet survives the battle over Rannoch, and it turns out that they're practically Rubber-Forehead Aliens.
- The Legend of Zelda:
- Rola, the player's trainer in Metal Combat, is later revealed to a green-skinned alien woman in disguise.
- Dr. Anesthesia's superstar persona in Rumble Roses XX.
- World of Warcraft:
- Where the Draenei males are burly catfish-faced oddities who resemble barely-tethered hot air balloons, the females are much more humanoid.
- Garona Halforcen: Green, very attractive, and was born on Draenor, not Azeroth. (Originally she was Half-Human/Half-Orc, then Retconned to Half-Orc/Half-Draenei. This opened several Plot Holes that were somewhat fixed by making her the latter through rape, but making her think she was the former, and making her artificially aged.)
- Although they're far from universally attractive, female orcs in general can be this (mixed with a healthy dose of Amazonian Beauty).
- Krystal from Star Fox. Bonus points for being a blue space babe in a game whose whole cast already consists of cartoon animals in space.
- Rift has Blue Extradimensional Babes with a dash of Statuesque Stunner and/or Amazonian Beauty, and Gray Tribal Elf Babes.
- Aliens in The Sims 2 often come with maxed out Outgoing and Nice. One with a Romance aspiration can be very good at wooing plenty of Sims very quickly. Even more the case with user-created game mods that change the physical appearances of aliens and alien-offspring, from coloration to facial structure (as the default alien look is a noseless bug-eyed little green man).
- Obviously, the Orions in Star Trek Online. The females have the ability to induce confusion, as well as have a natural resistance to confusion and generate less threat than other races thanks to the natural pheromones they give off. As mentioned in the TV section above, the females rule the race (and the Orion Syndicate that rules the race) because of this.
- The Awoken from Destiny are a rare justified example; they were originally a fleet of humans who fled Earth during the Collapse and when they returned they were basically a Human Subspecies. So in other words they look like humans because they're descended from humans.
- Believe it or not, the San'Shyuum of Halo used to be this, a race of beautifully sensual pleasure-seekers known throughout the galaxy for their near-universal appeal. Unfortunately, societal degradation, genetic bottlenecking, and slight genetic manipulation on the part of the Forerunners have created the feeble, ugly creatures we fight today.
- Schlock Mercenary got some humanoids, but no quite Human Aliens. Jevee Ceeta fits the image well (there was even some Ship Tease), yet turned out to be a member of the genetically modified race of humans with photosynthetic skin ("purp"), not an alien. Lampshaded here, and later mocked another common kind of "hot" alien babe.
- Averted and played with in Girl Genius in the form of the three waitresses/cabaret singers at Mamma Gkika's Bar. As far as is so far established, these three are humans disguised as Jägermonster females for the tourist trade. However the three ACTUAL Jägermonsters known as "Da Boyz" seem to find them attractive, which is reciprocated — but of course the Jägerkin are mutated humans, rather than aliens, anyway. Enter the eponymous Mamma Gkika, who IS a Jägermonster, complete with the usual elastic grin full of fangs and pointy ears, but also (usually, though not always) shown with normal human skin tones — unusual among the Jägerkin — and so, hiding in plain sight. We later find out that Gkika can change her skin color at will, and it's unknown what her natural color is.
- Sluggy Freelance:
- Parodied an an early plotline: There is a Green-skinned Space Babe, but it turns out (s)he's the male of that species. Riff and Torg oddly don't seem to care, and continue ogling him as blatantly as before.
- Aylee plays this straight when not in a draconic or serpentine form.
- Subverted in The Inexplicable Adventures of Bob!. Princess Voluptua looks the part of the stereotypical alien space nymphette, right down to her skimpy one-piece outfit. However, this is an illusion; underneath it, she is a giant butterfly creature, and this is common knowledge among the cast. When designing her shapeshifted human form, Voluptua claims to have gotten the normal human female proportions wrong unintentionally; she has not corrected the error.
- Outsider, because it started as a Master of Orion fan-comic, has two of the main Loroi characters being obvious copies of the Elerian scientist and soldier.
- MSF High has the true legion, planty alien chicks that can convert other people into more true legion.
- Emsi of Drunk Aliens has green skin, blue hair, antennae, & a tail.
- Intragalactic features a gender-flipped example — the Pink-Skinned Space Bish Axl, who has gills and was once a tadpole, but now is the human Captain's Brainless Beauty boyfriend.
- The hot mom alien from Irregular Elis are a good example.
- In Nip and Tuck, the Show Within a Show Rebel Cry has them. This then entered into the main comic as a theme restaurant.
- In Quentyn Quinn, Space Ranger, on the cover, though not in the series.
- Captain Madison Vrax from Cassiopeia Quinn is a blue skinned human/alien hybrid.
- Parodied in Space Case, where curvy, bikini-clad Phranc would be an excellent example of this trope...except that he's a male Zedzenine. Apparently, for his species, most gender tropes are reversed, so he's actually quite the manly man.
- Far Out There has Neva: the buxom, silver-bikini-clad main character of a long line of films. However, Neva is just a fictional character, so she only appears in film clips or the occasional holiday parade. Ironically, there actually ARE real green-skinned people in Far Out There, but they're genetically modified humans, not aliens (and so far, none of them have been babes).
- The web series Star Trek: Renegades gives Trekkies another Andorian babe in Shree, a hot blue-skinned lady with a black leather getup and a penchant for (lesbian) BDSM.
- A villain in an episode of Eek! The Cat parodying Star Trek uses this exact wording to refer to his highly attractive spies.
"We have failed to uphold Brannigan's Law. However, I did make it with a hot alien babe. And in the end, is that not what man has dreamt of since first he looked up at the stars?"
- In Zapp Brannigan's introductory episode where he tricks Leela into sleeping with him, he dictates this Captain's Log to Kif at the end of the episode (the irony is that Leela is a mutant human, not an alien):
- To many women over the course of the show, Kif is the green skinned space babe.
- Ben 10:
- Grandpa Max married and had a family with a purple-skinned Energy Being (who hides it well), and later dated a literal Green-Skinned Space Babe.
- Ben himself seems to have more luck with alien girls than human ones, and like his Grandpa he has caught the eye of an actual green skinned alien, a princess at that. Ben also seems to have caught the eye of a red skinned, four armed alien warrior princess he bested in battle.
- Megas XLR:
"Coop, what're you doing man? I've got digits from green-skinned girls! GREEN-SKINNED GIRLS!"
- The ultimate dream of Jamie is to visit a planet full of these. He even picked up a few such girls in "Battle Royale", though it was entirely due to the money he made from betting on Coop's winning streak.
- The bounty hunter in "Department of Megas Violations" is a blue-skinned one.
- Marion Moonglow from The Patridge Family 2200 AD.
- An episode of Stroker and Hoop deals with this. She was a secret government agent sent to kill him the whole time.
- Subverted in Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! and replaced with Shapeshifting Squick Starfish Aliens as An Aesop against womanizing and being Distracted by the Sexy from your duties.
- In the Tek Jansen cartoons shown on The Colbert Report, Tek is constantly having no-setup sex with various space vixens. On one occasion, the woman in question was a fleshy outgrowth from the forehead of a man-eating space anglerfish.
- Teen Titans' Starfire, the resident Orange Skinned Space Babe.
- Princess Mandie note on The Fairly Oddparents, a Yellow Skinned Alien Babe.
- An entire planet filled with them kidnap Johnny Bravo. They later dump him in favor of Mel Gibson.
- The Martian Queen from Duck Dodgers. A white-haired alien who walks around in nothing but a golden bra thing and an almost see-through long skirt. Impressive given that, aside from eyes, she has no features on her face at all, unless seen in profile.
- Wendy Garbo from Galaxy High, sort of. And while Aimee is human, she briefly colours herself blue in the pilot.
- Young Justice has one Miss Martian. Turns out it's an Invoked Trope, as like in the comic she's actually a monstrous white Martian.
- Warmonga from Kim Possible. Her partner, Warhak is also green-skinned, but since he's male, he doesn't count.
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars is full of them. The above mentioned Twi'lek females appear in practically every other episode, often wearing very Fanservice-y outfits, even if they're not outright club dancers or slaves. The two Ms. Fanservice characters, Aayla Secura and Su Lawquane, are both Twi'leks. Then there's Ahsoka Tano, a teenage Togruta who for the first two and half seasons was running around in a tiny tubetop, Assajj Ventress who just loves to show off her legs, and Luminara Unduli and her padawan Barriss Offee, who are literally Green Skinned Space Babes (though their outfits are much more concealing). Then there's senator Chu chi a blue skinned Pantoran diplomat, and her outfits aren't bad either.
- In Green Lantern: The Animated Series, the Star Sapphire Corps most of them are Zamarons who are blue skinned all female race, and wear really fanservicey outfits.
- Menagerie Pamela from Superman vs. the Elite.
- Peep from Tom and Jerry: Blast off to Mars, even though her species is only a few inches tall.
- The Gems of Steven Universe are like this. Physically, they're just rocks, but with projections made of light, they take the forms of human women - but retain colorful skin and hair due to Morphic Resonance. Pearl, Garnet and Rose Quartz are considered quite attractive by humans in-universe (though Rose has peach-pink skin.)
