1. Yoda

Yoda in the Star Wars movies showed us that aliens can be the smartest and wisest of all of a movie's characters. Kick ass, he can too.

The Alien from Aliens

2. The Alien from Aliens

The Alien from the Aliens movies, now they existed for one purpose and one purpose only -- to completely ruin our days... and nights. Those are some nasty bastards. Love the way a second set of teeth comes emerging out of the mouth! Scary to the max.


3. E.T.

Steven Spielberg's E.T. taught us that they're all not here to take over our world. Also, his alien had... well, heart!

The Predator

4. The Predator

The Predator was as menacing as the alien from Aliens, but he was so much more. He could go invisible and basically was almost impossible to kill. That is, unless you're Arnold!

Close Encounters Aliens

5. Close Encounters Aliens

Those little aliens from Close Encounters were so cute!

Alien Leader from Mars Attacks!

6. Alien Leader from Mars Attacks!

For pure humor, nothing can beat the alien leader of Tim Burton's Mars Attacks!

Chewbacca from Star Wars

7. Chewbacca from Star Wars

Chewbacca was the perfect wing man. Well, if being a wing man means being there to kick butt for your BFF. Everybody give us your best Chewbacca roar and connect with your inner Wookie!

Na'vi from Avatar

8. Na'vi from Avatar

The Na'vi are a nature loving group of aliens in James Cameron's Avatar world. What's not to love?

Vincent D'Onofrio in Men in Black

9. Vincent D'Onofrio in Men in Black

Vincent D'Onofrio in Men in Black was a great combination of pure brute force meets comic relief. Love that guy!

Aliens from Starship Troopers

10. Aliens from Starship Troopers

The aliens from Starship Troopers are more of the bug-like variety that Hollywood likes to throw at us every couple of decades. But the way they came at those troops in Starship Troopers was utterly terrifying.

Aliens from District 9

11. Aliens from District 9

The aliens in District 9 were kind of like aliens of another kind. We love how they looked and more importantly, the message the film told by using E.T.s as a parallel for foreign immigration.

The Aliens from Independence Day

12. The Aliens from Independence Day

Who doesn't love an alien that only says one word throughout an entire movie after causing so much destruction? And that word was: "Diiiiiiiiiiie!"

The Klingons

13. The Klingons

The Klingons in the Star Trek world have proven to be both enemies and friends. They're versatile! We'll see what role they play in the future installments of the new Star Trek. Either way, they are quite the innovative alien invention!


14. Riddick

Riddick kicks ass, there is nothing more to it than that. That alien may be wanted, but we can't get enough.
