We Rank in Peace, Earthlings.

Space. Another frontier of fictional characters we have not yet fully explored on Ranked yet. As we try to still discover life outside our small little blue planet called Earth in the real world, we can at least rely on fiction to come up with some other worldly creatures to pit against each other on a Top 5 list. Join Tuong La and Exotic Extraterrestials Rich Hilborn, Chelsea Fahey, and Angus MacDonald as they beam up and probe out a Top 5 Aliens list.

Ground Rules

  • Pulling from all mediums of fiction (ie books, movies, tv, video games, etc.)
  • Nominating a specific alien but when you can’t you nominate the species.
  • Ranking on the merits of both the specific alien and the species of alien. In other words, when discussion of the character gets exhausted, must lean on the alien aspects of the character to make your case
  • Another “plane” or “dimension” does not usually mean it’s alien ie A demon is not an alien
  • Our definition of Alien is “not of this world”.
  • Hybrids of Aliens can count. ie can have human DNA
  • Nominations that are more inherently “alien” get the edge over nominations that are basically human-like
