Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/Thirst2015'': The alien monster in this movie has a proboscis located in its chest. It can shoot the proboscis out at will and use it to suck the vital fluids out of victims.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/SaveYourselves'': The pouffes are a species of aliens that resemble animate pom-poms, with features such as eyes or mouths not being visible. They also feed specifically on ethanol, consuming Su and Jack's sourdough starter and whiskey, as well as draining their car's gasoline.

Added DiffLines:

* Most creatures in the ''VideoGame/{{Grow}}'' games works in strange ways, because the games use toon physics and the creator puts emphasis on creativity. In general, the way a creature works depends of the game, and pretty much every creature can transform in strange ways by interacting with an object or being in a specific place, but there are examples that are consistently weird.
** The Onkies have no faces, but can see and eat just fine, and their heads may also fall from their bodies, but their bodies can simply pick them up and put them back again. When they get exhausted, they melt as if they were made of wax. They also come in different colors that indicate either their gender, age or expertise depending of the game. Sometimes, they have the ability to self-duplicate.
** The Tonties are cyclops with horns. They live underground in colonies like ants, their colors and number of horns indicate their roles, and their queen is a big white Tontie-head with no body. One way for a white Tontie to become a queen is to have a crown fall on it. Its body is crushed under the weight of the crown and its own head (which also somehow gets bigger as the body is squished). Also, a different creature may turn into a white Tontie simply by falling into a spike. A big eye then appears on the creature whose original face somehow disappear and the spike become the newly-created Tontie's horn.
** The Rotta/Pierre is a creature that changes completely depending if it's daytime or nighttime. Its "Rotta" form, which it takes during the day, is a blob monster that can shape-shift. Its "Pierre" form, which it takes during the night, is a round bat-like creature that splits in two if it's tapped by a hammer after which a Onky comes out of it. Gluing the halves back brings back the Pierre to life but changes its colors.

Added DiffLines:

* Myth/JapaneseMythology: According to the Kappa myth, they have three anuses, enabling to pass three times as much gas as a human.


** Salarians are a race that evolved from amphibious precursors, and they reproduce in a similar fashion to amphibians; females lay eggs, and males inseminate the eggs afterwards. Fertilized eggs hatch into males, and unfertilized eggs, females. This also gives way to salarian slang of calling someone a "cloaca" (the cloaca being a sac in amphibian bodies that is part of both the excretory and reproductive systems - in other words, an "ass" and a "dick"). Furthermore, the accelerated metabolisms of salarians give way to increased brain function, helping salarians become more intelligent, but at the cost of having significantly shorter lifespans than any other race in the galaxy - Mordin Solus, who is approximately 40, is considered practically geriatric by salarian standards.

** Like the Trill, who are (two or) three species with separate degrees of this. The Trill symbionts are alien slugs that live for millennia, and can bond with humans or humanoid aliens. Though only the humanoids of their own homeworld are suitable as permanent hosts. Semi-permanent, rather, since once the host dies the symbiont gets transplanted into a new one. Given that this is done ''surgically'', how did the humanoid Trill and symbiont Trill ever even figure out that such a thing was possible? It's not as if when two sentient species meet, surgically implanting one into the other is a logical thing to attempt.

** Then there's the fact that Scarrans don't have external sexual organs, which Chiana discovers after collapsing in agony from trying to [[GroinAttack knee one in the mivonks]].

** Then there's the fact that Scarrans don't have external sexual organs, which Chiana discovers after collapsing in agony from trying to [[GroinAttack knee one in the mivonks]]. They also have an internal body temperature high enough to melt some metals and can fire heat beams from their hands.

Added DiffLines:

** Klingons have redundant organs that will engage if they suffer enough damage to their primary organs.


** In [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries the original series]], Spock often exhibited this, most famously with his [[AlienBlood green blood]] and [[BizarreAlienReproduction pon farr]], much to Dr. [=McCoy=]'s amusement and occasional surprise. Arguably, this is {{lampshade|Hanging}}d at the end of "Operation: Annihiliate!", when it is revealed that Vulcans have an inner eyelid:

* ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' doesn't get into it often, but it's still there. One example that sticks out is when the [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily Skakdi race]], in part of their rdescription as repulsive and gross, are mentioned to ''chew and swallow their food'' like ''animals'' as opposed to simply [[EnergyAbsorption absorbing energy]] like everyone else does.

** The franchise's [[Franchise/{{LEGO}} LEGO]] [[BuiltWithLEGO roots]] are given a nod in rare instances when the characters' ability to rebuild themselves is mentioned. Under special circumstances, they can reattach separated limbs, instantly regrow decayed muscle and repair themselves with specific pieces, though the latter requires special knowledge. Some can also [[FusionDance fuse with each other]], during which their parts and spirits meld with each other as long as they concentrate, while the Makuta race can forcibly absorb others to gain their mass and destroy their spirits.
** The Makuta are individual parts of a sentient HiveMind liquid called antidermis, made into biomechanical cyborgs whose life process involves their musclemass, organs and minds turning into gas at a certain age, after which they gain the ability to leave their bodies and possess machines and lose all biological needs.
** Certain animals in the lore come equipped with [[BizarreAlienLocomotion tank treads and suspension gear]] in place of legs, which is never ever commented on as something unusual.
