With 7 TeV proton-proton collisions data collected by the ATLAS detector we present searches for anomalous top-quark production and decay in several channels , including a search for top-quark pair production with anomalous missing transverse energy, top-quark pair resonances, fourth generation quarks decaying to top quarks. Such phenomena can arise from a number of Standard Model extensions.
