Prawn - District 9

Prawns, from District 9, has been one of the best aliens depictions in recent history. They're a perfect rendition of what a non-mammalian humanoid might look like, with scales covering the body, tentacles for a mouth, and kangaroo-like legs ideal for jumping. Like other great depictions, Prawns are human enough to evoke empathy but different enough to feel foreign.
