I Know WoW has nothing to do with Alien. Alien face hugger is refered to as an ENCEPHALOPOD in both the book and the movie in reference to Gieger's original conception of the face hugger as an octopus like creature (The Book of Alien - Gieger Concepts and Artwork) The concept was also reused in the movie Promethius as an earlier version of an Alien bioweapon delivery system. In H.G. Wells epic book the aliens were depicted as large octopus like creatures.

Encephalopod aka Cephalopods - higher order of Mollusks including squid and Octopus also used in relation to the xenomorph facehugger in the Alien series as it was originally concieved as an octopus like creature. (Hince the big Squiddie in Promethius)
