Basic Trope: Victims of Alien Abduction get probed in the butt, probably For Science!

  • Straight: Alice and Bob get abducted by The Greys, who shove probes into Alice's and Bob's butts.
  • Exaggerated: The Greys proceed to shove more probes into every single orifice on their bodies.
  • Downplayed: Alice and Bob are both forced to wear what's essentially a really weird and chafing thong.
  • Justified: The probes are explicitly colonoscopy tools.
  • Advertisement:
  • Inverted: Alice and Bob abduct The Greys, and give them a colonoscopy.
  • Subverted:
    • The Greys pull down Alice's and Bob's pants, take pictures and measurements, and pull their pants back up.
    • "IMBECILES! Why are you putting the brain probe THERE?!"
  • Double Subverted: The leader of The Greys berates the others for forgetting the probe, and sends them back to pull down Alice's and Bob's pants again.
  • Parodied:
    • The Grey scientists attempt to seduce Alice and Bob before probing them.
    • By the aliens' own admission, they weren't probing Alice and Bob for any medical or scientific reasons, this was just a weird and perverse sexual fetish they wanted to indulge in.
  • Zig Zagged: (continued from Double Subverted) The Greys are about to insert the probe when they notice the probe's battery is dead. One recharge later, The Greys are about to insert it, but notice it's malfunctioning. They take it apart to figure out what's wrong, and leave to replace a faulty part, leaving the disassembled probe behind. Bob gets the not-so-bright idea to steal one of the other parts and hide it... up his butt. Alice facepalms.
  • Advertisement:
  • Averted: The purpose of The Greys abducting Alice and Bob was to test out their translator device, not to do a medical examination.
  • Enforced: The aliens accomplished every plot-relevant purpose they had for abducting Alice and Bob, but the authors need filler, so they tack on a good old-fashioned anal probing.
  • Lampshaded:
  • Invoked:
    Bob: "Aww, is the abduction over already? Aren't you going to probe us?"
    The Greys: "Well, if you insist..."
    Alice: "WHAT THE HELL is wrong with you, Bob?! Don't give them any ideas, you sick weirdo!"
  • Exploited: The Greys find and remove colon cancer far more easily than human doctors could have done.
  • Defied:
    The Greys: "You want us to probe you WHERE?! That is Sick and Wrong! You Earthlings are weird!"
  • Discussed: "Uh-oh. Three guesses where the probe goes."
  • Advertisement:
  • Conversed: "This Is the Part Where... the probe goes in the butt."
  • Deconstructed: The invasiveness and lack of consent involved results in humans assuming The Greys are more malicious than they really are. Thus, humanity assume the aliens are trying to deceive them when The Greys finally introduce themselves.
  • Reconstructed: Managing to put together that some humans might remember them regardless, The Greys decide they should just be open and honest with the humans they're examining. Thus they don't do anything their human subjects refuse, and generally reinforce and clarify they're just trying to figure out how their "neighbors" work so as to avoid complications later on.
  • Played For Laughs: The anal probing is treated akin to Black Comedy Rape.
  • Played For Drama: The anal probing is treated akin to Rape as Drama.
  • Implied: Alice and Bob are asleep when a Tractor Beam picks them up. Jump Cut to next morning, with Alice and Bob complaining that their butts hurt and wondering what happened last night.

Bend over for your Anal Probing.
