Reptoids are a race of shape shifting reptilian humanoids that have infiltrated the major governments of the world for some sort of sinister purpose. This of course is according to the conspiracy theorist David Icke. These are not to be confused with the Warhammer Aztecs, or the Dungeons and Dragons race lizardfolk.

Pathfinder[edit]

Pathfinder 1st edition also includes them as a race of shapeshifting lizardfolk, and even lets players play them. They appered in the Bestiary 5 with the following lore/stats.

Reptoids are bipedal reptiles from another planet, or perhaps even another plane—they refuse to reveal their origins to humanoids, even under duress. Disguised as members of others races, the reptoids seek positions of power in order to secretly prepare for an invasion from their homeworld. Even those who are aware of reptoids in their midst can never be truly sure who is real and who is an alien, as these creatures are often adept at enchantment and psychic magic, which they use to cover the tracks of their deceptions and to ensure the complacency or even collusion of their soon-to-be thralls.
Ability Score Modifiers: Reptoids are both manipulative and strong, but they’re deliberate in their movements. They gain +2 Strength and +2 Charisma but suffer –2 Dexterity.
Size: Reptoids are Medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.
Speed: Reptoids have a base speed of 30 feet.
Languages: All reptoids begin play speaking Common and Reptoid. Reptoids with high Intelligence scores can choose any languages they want (except for secret languages, such as Druidic). See the Linguistics skill page for more information about these languages.
Low-Light Vision: Reptoids can see twice as far as humans in dim light.
Scales: When in its natural form, a reptoid has a +1 natural armor bonus.
Cold-Blooded (Ex): Reptoids receive a +2 racial saving throw bonus against mind-affecting effects and poison.
Natural Weapons (Ex): When in its natural form, a reptoid has a bite attack and two claw attacks that deal 1d3 points of damage each.
Change Shape (Su) A reptoid can assume the appearance of a specific single Medium humanoid. The reptoid always takes this specific form when it uses this ability. The reptoid gains a +10 racial bonus on Disguise checks to appear as that type of humanoid. This ability otherwise functions as alter self, except the reptoid does not adjust its ability scores. A reptoid can select a new humanoid form by spending 1 week preparing itself for the change, but can then no longer assume its previous humanoid form.
Mental Potency (Ex) A reptoid’s mental effects can affect more powerful creatures or a greater number of creatures than normal. Both the Hit Die limit and the total number of Hit Dice affected by each enchantment or illusion spell it casts increase by 1. For enchantment and illusion spells it casts that target a number of creatures greater than one, the number of creatures affected also increases by one (so a spell that targets one creature per level would be affected, but a spell that targets only one creature would not be). This ability stacks with the mesmerist’s ability of the same name.

Starfinder[edit]

Of course, reptoids also appear in Starfinder, specifically in the first Alien Archive. For the most part, they're identical to their Pathfinder versions, though now the fact that they're infiltrating societies while disguised as other people is more of a known conspiracy.

Ability Score Modifiers: +2 Strength, +2 Charisma, -2 Dexterity.
Racial HP: 5
Type: Reptoids are Medium humanoids with the reptoid and shapechanger subtypes.
Speed: Reptoids have a base speed of 30 feet.
Change Shape (Su) A reptoid can assume the appearance of a specific single Medium humanoid. The reptoid always takes this specific form when it uses this ability. The reptoid gains a +10 racial bonus on Disguise checks to appear as that type of humanoid. This ability otherwise functions as alter self, and lasts 10 minutes x the reptoid's character level. A reptoid can select a new humanoid form by spending 1 week preparing itself for the change, but can then no longer assume its previous humanoid form.
Cold-Blooded (Ex): Reptoids receive a +2 racial saving throw bonus against mind-affecting effects and poison.
Low-Light Vision: Reptoids can see twice as far as humans in dim light.
Natural Weapons (Ex): Reptoids are always considered to be armed when they are not using their change shape ability. They can deal 1d3 lethal slashing damage with unarmed strikes, and the attack does not count as archaic. Reptoids gain a unique weapon specialization with their natural weapons at 3rd level, allowing them to add 1-1/2 × their character level to their damage rolls for their natural weapons (instead of adding just their character level, as usual).
