Little green men, or LGMs, are the stereotypical portrayal of extraterrestrials as little (50cm-1m) humanoid creatures with green skin. Many variants have been reported, such as with one eye or with antennae.[2]

The term is also sometimes used to describe gremlins, mythical creatures known for causing problems in airplanes and mechanical devices. Today, these creatures more commonly associated as an alien species are the Greys.
