Archiving a bit of text here about the Xenomorphs. It was posted in the "if it doesn't fit anywhere else, put it here" category, yet every single characteristic has its own trope.

  • From the Alien series, the Xenomorphs have the following quirks:
    • They have a second jaw inside their mouth, complete with its own working mouth, which can launch out hydraulically.
    • They are apparently Silicon-Based Life instead of carbon-based.
    • Their Alien Blood is yellow and highly acidic—enough to melt through nets and chains created by the Predators in the first AVP movie.
    • Most importantly is their reproduction style. Leaving the whole chestburster thing aside, Xenomorph DNA merges with the host's DNA to produce unique hybrids. For instance, there's a dog hybrid in Alien 3, and of course the infamous Predalien from AVP: Requiem.

Under real life, shouldn't we add the bombardier beetle, because how strange is firing acid out of its arse?

That whole bit under Live Action TV about Doctor Who, the natter about the functioning of MR Is, is completely irrelevant as the example in question didn't involve one. In that scene the Doctor survived radiation from an X-Ray machine, and someone's confusing that with the later MRI scene.

How well does it match the trope?
