10 TV & Movie Aliens You Want In Your Wolfpack

7. Optimus Prime – Transformers

Optimus Prime from Transformers 10 TV & Movie Aliens You Want In Your Wolfpack

Whether you are a high school nerd or a disgruntled employee, everybody could use some muscle on their side. This was a tough decision between Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, but in the end Prime is a much more uplifting companion – and he can speak clearly. While Bumblebee would be more fun in car mode, as seen during the scene with Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox in Transformers, Prime is just a trust-worthy alien with the leadership quality to pick you back up during a down day.

There is one glaring issue with befriending Optimus Prime: he comes with a lot of baggage. Everything that he left behind on Cybertron puts you in harm’s way and it seems a friend of Prime’s is an enemy of the Decepticon race. If you can handle a lot of explosions and beautiful women running around yelling either expositional dialogue or mindless jokes, Optimus Prime is the perfect friend for you.


6. Paul – Paul

Paul 10 TV & Movie Aliens You Want In Your Wolfpack

Paul is cool under pressure, always up for a new adventure and knows more government-hidden secrets than a water cooler discussion could handle. More importantly, Paul is one of the few easy-going aliens in the universe. His knowledge of pop culture and cloaking capability (not a spoiler, shown in the trailers) make for a fun night no matter the circumstances.

While Paul is guaranteed fun, he also has the law on his tail (or rather, green butt). A friendship with Paul means a life on the run and not everybody is up for that kind of lifestyle. Paul also has a dirty sense of humor, which can come off as a bit disconcerting at times – especially if you want to have a few serious discussions with your little green friend.


5. Mac, Wiploc, Zeebo – Earth Girls Are Easy

Earth Girls are Easy 10 TV & Movie Aliens You Want In Your Wolfpack

This trio of colorful aliens are unmatched in the comedic galaxy. They don’t look like much in their true alien form, but it only takes a single full-body shave to expose three friends ready to party. Their most intriguing ability is an instant comprehension of American culture after only a few minutes of watching television. Imagine what they would be like if you spent an entire day hanging out on the couch. But the trio is most fun when out on the town, as they can probably get any man a woman for at least the evening.

It’s difficult to pinpoint what makes a friendship with these three a potential disaster. Of course, they are tremendously irresponsible and might bring you down to their level; in addition, managing three aliens of their caliber at once might become a handful. It sounds about as difficult as taking care of three Links (Encino Man).


4. Doctor Who – Doctor Who

Doctor Who1 10 TV & Movie Aliens You Want In Your Wolfpack

For heart-pounding adventures across time and space, there’s only one alien you’d want by your side – The Doctor. This dual-hearted Gallifreyan time traveler has traversed the universe for the past 907 years, preventing the destruction of the Earth in multiple dimensions and, at times, sacrificing himself to protect those in harm’s way.

‪Unfortunately, spending time traversing the universe with The Doctor can only end one way – in heartbreak. After death-defying adventures saving planets and species you never knew existed, The Doctor will leave you. Whether it happens unexpectedly during the night, or because the sight of him will cause your brain to explode, there will be a time when The Doctor will no longer be around. For generations this has happened to those before you, and for generations this will happen to those after you. This is, sadly, the cost of experiencing the beauty and wonder that time and space has to offer.‬

  1. That image of Superman is exactly how he should look. Take note Zack Snyder!

    Good article.

  2. What no love for Alf?

    • Yeah, I was about to ask that!

      • I had Alf on my top 15 list. Should have mentioned him in the opening paragraphs.

        • Dump ET for Alf

  3. Dr Who should be #1……noone beats the doctor!!!!!! not even sups and specially not chewbacca and ET

  4. GORT – the one from the Michael Renne film, not the remake with Keanu. maybe not the most loquacious cat in the quadrant, but jeez, who would give you a hard time with GORT standing behind you?

  5. I knew Supes would be number 1, even before I read the article. Kudos on that number 1 selection. I would replace the Ewoks with Worf, from Trek: Next Gen and the Earth Girls are Easy guys with Yoda.

    • I would rather party with Darth Maul then Dr. Who or the Earth Girls or Easy guys.

  6. I´d take out Zaphod and Paul to see a stand up comedy show by Alf in a nightclub where the waitresses look like Kim Basinger in “My Stepmother Is An Alien”.

  7. I think Dr Who would be the most fun to hang out with, but I’d enjoy hanging with Spock. :)


  8. Frank the dog from MIB … definitely

    • haha he was awesome

  9. jar jar binks? only if i beat the crap out of him two minutes into the night…


    and whatever they were called in “district 9″… :D

    • I was hurt when the surfer wasn’t on this…

  10. Yoda.

  11. Ahhh Li Lu from the fifth element? She was technically an alien.

  12. D’Argo from Farscape. He can watch my back anytime.

  13. I have to add Yoda,Gonzo,and Rodger from American Dad to list of homies.

    • I don’t know if I could trust Roger. He causes too many issues.

      • True, but he is party damn funny.

  14. Bender too

    • R2 D2,Tiwggy,and 7 of 9.

      • 7 of 9 is not an alien. But I do understand. :-D

        • She was part alien tech.

          • Hey, alien or not, I completely understand. She is the Borg that can shag, I mean assimilate, you. :-D

            • Ha, you said assimilate….That’s the only way to go out.

  15. How about The Terminator, the one from T2

    • How was he an alien?

  16. Hell yes Superman is #1!!!

  17. how about lord voldemort? :)

    • Not an alien!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • He sure as hell looks like one :)

      • Can you say that a little louder, please. :-)

  18. Barf ? From Spaceballs

    • Hell yeah , BARF !!!!!!!!

  19. Paul? Did someone see a film recently? Good thing a character’s that’s existed for all of two minutes beat out characters that have been around for 20-30 years.

    • Juan,

      While Paul just opened, and I didn’t really like the movie much, the character IS a fun guy that you’d like to hang out with. We do have to claim “mea culpa” for missing Alf, though (unless you’re a cat lover).


      • Two cats and a dog.

  20. How about Starman, & Cheech in born in east LA, (They thought he was an illegal alien).

  21. Very nice list, overall. I’d definitely want to spend some time with The Doctor, myself. 8-)

  22. Station from Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey. Sure, the movie is not nearly as good as excellent adventure, but Station(s) was/were hilarious and could build remote control robot likenesses from common supplies from a hardware store! And all they say is “STATION!”

  23. What about Mork or the Coneheads. I think that would be great.

  24. I’m pretty sure Han Solo is a scruffy-headed “nerve-hurter”…not “nerf-herder…
