How about that alien in Cloverfield that threw the head of the Statue of Liberty like a bowling ball through Greenwich Village, mowing down all those posers, making them spill their Appletini's and Venti Iced Skinny Hazelnut Macchiato, Sugar-Free Syrup, Extra Shot, Light Ice, No Whip?

That was sweet.

A single alien doesn't comprise an army. Would be a good inclusion for a general monster movie poll suggestion.

@tsarstepan,
Oh.

I thought that there were going to be more aliens, and this guy was just the scout or something.

If he was alone, that just proves what a douchebag he was. The other aliens from his planet probably kicked him off because nobody liked him.

They were probably all like "Joel is such a dick. I'm glad he's gone"

There were also the Yeti in Doctor Who. They were all controlled by an entity known as The Great Intelligence so I don't know if they'd count as an army.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/ed/Yeti_(Doctor_Who).jpg
The Yeti only appeared in 2 Patrick Troughton stories, but The Great Intelligence returned much later played by Richard E Grant.

This time he controlled snowmen.

I'm missing something. I can feel it. It's big. It's obvious. And I can't think of it. Confused

But while I've been striving to think of whatever-it-is, I've thought of the following:


Star Trek Deep Space 9: The Dominion
http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Dominion_War


Star Trek Voyager: Species 8472
http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Species_8472


Babylon 5: The Vorlons
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vorlon


Babylon 5: The Shadows
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadow_%28Babylon_5%29


Andromeda: The Magog
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magog_%28Andromeda%29


Were there ever any major alien adversaries of the various incarnations of Buck Rogers or Flash Gordon?

Of course, there are always the Aquaphibians from Stingray. They were good baddies.

In this scene, Troy Tempest (good looking hero) and his number two called Bones (George W Bush lookalike), are being held prisoner on the Aquaphibian Submarine which looks very much like a large metallic Tilapia fish.

The Aquaphibian dialogue has been conveniently and hilariously subtitled.

"Stingray", from UK Telly, around 1964......

@Lordyaswas,
Hey! These were the same actors from Fireball XL5!

I had their lunch box.

I always wanted a "Remains of the Day" lunchbox, but that's another story.

@chai2,
And we used to sing the theme tune in the playground!


Groovy, baby.






And of course, every kid used to run around shouting "Stingraaaaay, Stingray"




And this one actually made the charts over here, if I remember correctly.....

Marina.....

The Thing (John Carpenter version). Looks like one alien, but it's actually a cellular swarm.

Highly intelligent, Aggressive, Malicious, Ruthless, Adaptable, Sneaky and nearly Indestructible. It's a Cellular army that can replicate any host including animals. If it can replicate a dog it can probably replicate a Rat or a Bird or a Cockroach or a Fly. Nothing more annoying than intelligent cockroaches and flies infecting things with their DNA. For all we know this organism might be able to replicate plants as well. Gardening would never be the same.

The only reason this Thing didn't take over the planet in two weeks flat is because it had the bad luck to crash land in Antarctica and meet Kurt Russell in one of his better films. If it had crashed anywhere else on the planet and started making intelligent bugs as carriers, it would be "Game Over Dude, Game Over!" (to steal a line from Bill Paxton in Aliens) for the planet.

When left to its own devices it replicates anyone or anything it has time alone with, spreads its cells into the water supply and begins building small spacecraft from spare parts in the shed.

And unlike half the other lame aliens who try to take over Earth, this one doesn't have a "hive mind" so it can't be killed by killing the queen or the mother ship or some silly weakness like that. And it doesn't need technology to beat you, it's just nastier all by itself right out of the box. So shutting down the power grid or blasting the whole planet with an EMP to stop technology isn't going to help.

An intelligent microbe that can assimilate bodies, minds and memories and can hijack DNA to create whatever it wants including copies of itself. That's about as bad as it gets.
