Different Types of Alien Races

by Les Hewitt

Over the course of the last several decades, thousands and thousands of people have come forward with reports of UFO activity all over the world and abductions. A high percentage of these have included reports of pilots, occupants and so-called UFO-nauts. These occupants generally fall into one of the several possible alien races. Claims suggest that each race has its own apparent agenda and may or may not be in collusion with another race. The following are the types of aliens races and the details people have reported about them.

Different Alien Races

Little People

Sightings of Little People were, at one time, at a premium. Much of the time they were reported as fairies or sprites and were at their peak in the 18th and 19th Centuries. While the occasional report is still made in modern times, they have been on the decline for many years now. Sightings now seem clustered within the Indo-China regions. Little People are only 1-2 feet tall, but isolated cases have put them more like 2-3ft in height. They resemble humans in appearance, and Little People usually wear bright tunics or uniforms. They are highly inquisitive and it seems that they are particularly engrossed with timepieces. Reports indicate that they are willing to inspect people and even play tricks on them. Encounters with Little People usually occur in a rural agricultural environment and around crops and farming.

Goblins are taller than Little People but are still diminutive by human standards. They do look a lot less like humans in a number of ways. Reports have mentioned traits such as pointed ears, unusual skin tones, and sharp pointed teeth. Some of these traits did seem to be location-specific; many reported encounters from South America were of hairy Goblins, while Europe considered them to be Trolls. The overwhelming majority of sightings occurred in the 1950s and 1960s and from locations that bordered urban areas. Woodland areas were a popular choice for Goblins. According to some reports, Goblins are hyperactive and gesticulate a lot of the time. This could be construed as aggressive in certain instances by certain people, but Goblins aren’t generally aggressive.


As their name suggests, these are the most human-like of all alien races. Traditionally, they have blue eyes and blond hair with oriental features. Although reports come in from all over the world, the majority of them center in Europe. Some reports claim that these people somehow gain access to homes simply by bypassing locks and security measures. Unlike a lot of the other alien races, some people have also encountered Humanoid females on occasions. There are reports of Humanoids abductions, and the impression that abductees have given is that the Humanoids are actually in charge of the operation. However, they are more empathic to the fears of the abductees themselves and do what they can to put them at ease. This has included film and video footage detailing ecological concerns.



Greys. Alien/Human image credit: Camilio Sanchez.

These days, the Greys are far and away from the most common type of alien race and they have been since the 1970s. Generally, they stand at 4ft tall with large heads and large almond-shaped eyes which tend to be dark. Reports claim that they are spindly, and they may or may not have a pointy chin. Features such as ears or a nose are not always in reports. A mouth is always in all reports, but it is nearly always a thin line without lips. Skin is either white or gray and some claim it to resemble parchment paper.

As far as any witnesses could tell, there doesn’t seem to be any gender. Grays do appear to be the most callous and sinister of all the alien races. Frequently abducting people at an alarming rate, claims indicate that they perform medical examinations and/or experiments in a cold and clinical fashion without much compassion or emotion.


People report these as the most hideous and monstrous of all aliens. Their very appearance can intimidate or frighten witnesses. Shadows are unshaped and people claim that they appear as outlines or even holographic illusions. They are not mobile and tend to have very little interaction. They are often transparent, and there are also claims of glowing lights of green or orange. A whistle or a buzzing noise signifies their arrival. When they do appear, it’s usually out of thin air. People have mainly reported about them appearing in bedrooms across the world in the middle of the night. Some have said to have appeared out of nowhere in moving vehicles!

Just like Humanoids, Nordics are essentially human-looking but are considerably taller than most humans, and Humanoids for that matter, standing at least 7ft tall. In some cases, this height is exceeded to as much as 9 or 10ft. Like the Humanoids, Nordics have blue eyes and blond hair but supposedly, they resemble Scandinavians in contrast to Orientals. Others have taken this description a step further and insist that Nordics have a hypnotic beauty akin to a Greek God. Nordics are perhaps the most benevolent of all alien races, offering civilized dialogues with witnesses. They reputedly have supernatural powers or abilities – such as psychic abilities, telepathy, and dematerialization. Nordics are willing to show footage of past and future events and, for some reason, seem to relish disparaging the Greys.

There are other possible alien races. Perhaps the most well-known of these would be the Reptilians. For many people though, a natural and overriding question is: What do they want with us? Perhaps we could also ask another pertinent question: What do they want with one another? Anyone that experiences an alien these days will most likely report a Grey. Where are the other alien races? Has something happened to them over the last several years or so?
