Basic Trope: An alien species steals earth women for Interspecies Romance.

  • Straight: Males from Mars kidnap Alice, for reproduction.
  • Exaggerated:
    • Males from Mars are only attracted to humans.
    • Every single sapient life form in the Multiverse is only attracted to Alice.
    • Martian males are attracted to human are Martian females.
  • Downplayed: Males from mars have a fetishistic attraction to humans that doesn't extend anywhere past oggling.
  • Justified:
    • Rule 34
    • Convergent evolution produced human aliens. The aliens are similar to humans, either from convergent evolution or from being Transplanted Humans and/or Transhuman Aliens, are horribly inbred due to a Depopulation Bomb of their own, and need humans of either gender specifically to revitalise their genepool or suffer extinction.
    • Aliens are Single-Gender Parasitic Species that can only reproduce impregnating other species.
    • Human female sex pheromones are the aliens' drugs.
    • The aliens feed from psychic energy, and they find the psychic energy generated by Earth females during sex to be powerful or at least very tasty.
    • The aliens are Doing It for the Art, to investigate this "mysterious" sensation that exists in humans.
    • The aliens have formed a psychic link with the human, but the humans' Id overwhelmed them and made the aliens want more of this "mysterious" sensation.
    • Advertisement:
    • The aliens have a Hive Mind that went crazy and decided to have sex with human females.
    • Fetishes for Earthlings are fairly popular on Mars.
    • There's a huge shortage of Martian females. Either it's through a Gendercide event like The Plague, or it's a permanent feature of their biology.
    • The "Martians" are the descendents of Earth colonists from a race of Advanced Ancient Humans, far back in evolutionary history to have formed a divergent species but not so different that they can't interbreed (possibly with a little genetic tweaking).
  • Inverted:
  • Gender Inverted: Females from Mars kidnap Bob, for reproduction.
  • Subverted:
    • The visiting martians see Alice as a Moe Blob, and are interested in her for the same reason that humans are interested in hamsters.
    • Advertisement:
    • Alice has fallen in love with martians
  • Double Subverted: But still the aliens eventually fucked her.
  • Parodied:
  • Zig Zagged: Not all the aliens are after Earth women, just a small group of perverts that the others apologize for.
  • Averted: Aliens do not have sex with Earth women.
  • Enforced: The creators are trying to insert Fanservice in a straightforward Sci-Fi setting.
  • Lampshaded: A woman captured by aliens asks "I can't believe so many different species find human women attractive!"
  • Invoked: An Evilutionary Biologist modifies human women to exude pheromones that attract aliens.
  • Exploited:
    • A woman seduces her way onto an alien ship to spy.
    • When aliens invade for women, a man begins rounding women up and selling them for a profit.
    • Martians create Half-Human Hybrids to infiltrate the humans.
    • Or: Half-Human Hybrids are used by humans to infiltrate the martians
  • Defied:
    • Interspecies Romance is forbidden by both worlds.
    • Mardok from Rigil Kentaurus finds human women to be Nausea Fuel, and rants of the idea in disgust: "You accuse me of bestial perversion, your species is depraved! Besides, you have no scales, strange hairs on your head and other places, monkey-like feet, no prehensile tail, and look at that weird-colored skin of yours, it isn't even blue! Me with them, how disgusting! Are you all this sexually perverse?"
  • Discussed: "What is it with human females and every single male species?"
  • Conversed: "Why does every writer thinks that we can actually breed with aliens despite our different biology?"
  • Deconstructed:
    • Earth becomes a whorehouse where humans are forced into sex slavery by the aliens.
    • Thanks to Bizarre Alien Biology, Earth women die from the toxic Martian body fluids.
  • Reconstructed:
    • ...And the humans enjoy it.
    • Martians extract their sperm and artificially impregnate Earth women.
