      There is a They Came From Outer Space supplement for Beneath the Sea.

        Though I appreciate adding a "The" before Mars.

          They Came from The Future, inspired by plots like Terminator, MIB 3 and Back to the Future.


          New experiences are the font of creativity, when seeking inspiration, break your routine.

          The Agathos Kai Sophos, an Acanthus Legacy of strategists (Mind/Time)
          The Szary Strażnik, an Obrimos Legacy whose invisible hands guide through the Glyphs of Fate (Fate/Prime)

            I genuinely clicked on this thread to post this exact idea! "They Came from the Dark Future!" would be neat.

              Hmm.

              They Came From The Ends of Time in which the threats are all forces from various (mostly dystopian) futures working to make sure that their timeline comes about.

              Terminators, Morlocks, Centrum, corrupt Time Lords, Cro-Mags, psychic dinosaurs, albino mutants, uplifted otters, etc.

                ​The Came From Beneath The Streets

                Urban heroes - modern or from the late 70s to early 90s - dealing with monsters from down in the sewers, subway tunnels, and lost catacombs. Giant albino alligators, homeless cannibal mutants, giant insects that masquerade as people, weird cults, deformed vampires, were-rats, ghosts, urbanized fairy folk, and other crazy things.

                Either as its own thing or as an expansion for Beyond the Grave.

                See films such as Aligator (1980), CHUD (1984), Mimic (1997), IT (2017/2019), Blade 2 (2002), and The Blob (1988).

                  They Came From the Terrible Present

                  This time, the players are chronauts trying to fix "terrible events that happened in the past". Traveling back in time to, for instance, avoid the World Wars, the spreading of deadly diseases, or even to give the right information/inspiration to certain scientists/artists to further advance their areas. Maybe we can have people going back in time for selfish reasons (like, to avoid their past self to meet their now-ex and skip and entire bad chapter in their lives). Maybe the players are trying to refix something that somebody else tried to fix, but actually made things worst in the present day.

                    There is a book by Orson Scott Card, Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus, in which a group of time travelers go back to the 1490s to change the events of European contact with the Americas. At one point, they discover that the timeline we are familiar with is the result of another group of time travelers having gone back to prevent Columbus from being the leader of a Christian crusade against the Ottoman Empire by having him become an explorer instead.
                    I could easily see various groups of would be do-gooders tripping all over each other trying to "fix" the earlier teams' alterations because they all keep making things worse in the present.

                      They Came From The Grindhouse. The PCs are the protagonists of sleazy 70s exploitation flix. Inner city street hustlers, women in prison, redneck racecar drivers, and other assorted weirdos.

                      Obviously this has potential for crossover with Classified (some of the stranger ends of the Bondsploitation genre) and Beyond the Grave (stuff like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and other grindhouse horror), as well as expansion into things like Japanese yakuza and delinquent films.

                        They Came From the Bleak Future / They Came Bearing Big Brothers Love. A pastiche of 1984, Brave New World, the RPG Paranoia, and dystopias found throughout modern literary history. Could have a supplement,They Came From the Kremlin, on how to play both Silly and Scarry Soviets.
