Martians are a recurring enemy faced in the video-game "Zombies Ate My Neighbors" and are obviously inspired by the many space invaders of fiction, especially those found in the old B-Movies.

Appearing out of nowhere and accompanied by giant UFOs the Martians of this setting are small green-skinned humanoids with large heads that have grotesquely swollen brains - they can attack by using a special ray-gun that envelops victims in a bubble, effectively freezing them: in the levels they appear they appear to be concerned mainly with abducting people and taking over the world, suggesting they are independent enemies rather than lackeys of Dr. Tongue.
