In science fiction

Greys are a popular theme in science fiction and have either appeared directly, or acted as a source of inspiration, in a number of different franchises. Greys also appear in Stargate SG-1 in the form of the Asgard, a highly advanced ally of the Stargate Command (SGC). In the TV series Babylon 5, aliens similar to the Greys are known as the Vree, the Streibs and the Zener. The first of these races are depicted as Earth Alliance allies on Babylon 5, while the others are hostile, with the third race serving the Shadows.

Stereotypical designs of the Grey alien race have been featured in various video game media. Examples include an extraterrestrial race known as the Sectoids which make their appearance in X-COM: UFO Defense. They also play the role of primary antagonists in the game Area 51, where they are depicted forming crop circles and mutilating cattle. The Nintendo 64 game Perfect Dark features a 'Grey' race of aliens called Maians. The Star Control series features the Arilou as a grey-derived ally of humanity. On the other hand, in the Destroy All Humans games, the aliens play the protagonists of the game (though antagonists to the humans). Greys also appear in the Deus Ex video game series. In Wii game Madworld, some levels contain aliens that are referred to solely as Greys. They are the only enemies in the game with blue blood.

In the current series (Series 6) of Doctor Who, a popular long-running British sci-fi drama, the Doctor's newest enemy, known as the Silence, are modelled upon the classic description and appearance of Greys, albeit with obvious customisation.

In children's science fiction literature, Greys appear in the Animorphs book series as the metamorphosed form of an alien race dubbed the Skrit Na.

In Star Trek pilot The Cage features a race of grey like extraterrestrials called The Talosians who kidnap the USS enterprise's former Commanding officer Captain Christopher Pike.

Mass Effect's salarians are known to have been inspired by the 'greys', with a large amount of further customization.However, they have no connection at all to what typical greys are accused of doing.
