* The ''[[Manga/{{Beastars}} Beastars]]'' world is brimming with enough speciesism to rival real-world racism, but also in the Beastars universe prey animals can be murdered (and eaten!) any time a predator loses control of their violent urges. It's a rough world for small animals, but the descrimination against predators isn't insignificant either.

** In the main timeline Earth is implied to be one of the few places other than the afterlife exempt from this. The galaxy at large is a CrapsackWorld, because its most politically powerful resident, [[TheSociopath Frieza]], is an AxeCrazy EvilOverlord who correctly believes that [[AGodAmI he is the strongest being in the universe.]] So you have someone more evil than anyone in human history [[EarthShatteringKaboom who is his own Death Star]] and who's been running around the galaxy for decades doing whatever he likes because there's nothing anyone can possibly do to stop him or even ''scratch'' him. [[spoiler:Until Goku goes Super Saiyan.]]

[[spoiler:Until Goku goes Super Saiyan.]]]] Also the denizens of the universe have to be worried about the God of Destruction Beerus, who will blow up your planet if your food is bad or you anger him, and blow half your planet up if your food is too greasy.
** Universe 9 in Super takes it up a notch. The world we are familiar with, that's the 7th universe. It's also the second lowest on mortal ranking. Universe 9 is the lowest ranked universe with an even lower quality of life and a general sense of violence to it.

** The Cursed Children get screwed even worse. Their mothers try to drown them upon giving birth to them, and if they ''do'' survive, then end up being treated like pariah and live isolated from the rest of humanity as a result. Those that ''do'' live alongside with humans are commonly lynched in pogrom-style attacks, and the police even participates in it! Even worse, outside of Japan, they're used as prostitutes, slaves, entertainment, products, and soldiers, and several are even subject to [[PlayingWithSyringes nightmarish experiments]], and that's for those who ''are'' working with the Initiators. To top it off, [[spoiler:they will ultimately turn into the very Gastrea that they're fighting]]. The only reason why they have it worse than regular Gastrea infectees is because they corrode somewhat slower, and when they do corrode past 50%, they have to be {{mercy kill}}ed to avoid being turned into a Gastrea, and doing this is absolutely gut-wrenching for everyone involved. Life sucks ''hard'' for ''everyone''. ''No exceptions.''

* Between the warmongering, xenophobic and corrupt nations fighting for the remains of the Earth, the [[PoliceAreUseless incompetent]] and [[PoliceBrutality bloodthirsty]] [[CorruptCop Civil Security Corporation]], and the [[HordeOfAlienLocusts ravenous]] [[EldritchAbomination Gastrea]] (which spreads a [[TheVirus virus]] that can easily be spread) that reduced humanity to 10% of its population, life in the world of ''LightNovel/BlackBullet'' really, really, really, really, really, [[OverlyLongGag really]] sucks ''[[UpToEleven hardcore]]''.

* ''LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool'' plays with this, especially after the first arches. First, we are shown typical add-ins with WizardSchool and various dosages of TheBeautifulElite with a variety of fan service, but then the world of the series begins to unfold as increasingly cynical, militarized and discriminatory. In particular, all of the current 10 great magical clans are the result of many years of experiments on people and the creation of DesignerBabies using SuperpowerfulGenetics, including positive eugenics in the literal sense of the word. Moreover, it becomes even more frightening when we find out that the [[spoiler: sister of the protagonist is a perfect ArtificialHuman]] and due to her perfect genetics [[spoiler: [[RoyalInbreeding she must become the wife of her own sibling in order to contain his unique abilities in the clan and to give their family powerful offspring without the participation of someone else either from.]]]]

* Another DarkFantasy manga contender is ''Manga/UbelBlatt''. [[TheKingdom The main human empire]] is the sole bulwark against [[TheEmpire Wistech]], which uses horrifying, [[BlackMagic corrupt]] {{magitek}} to create BodyHorror {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and WeaponsOfMassDestruction as tools of war, but the humans are bolstered by the might of the Seven Heroes who won the last great war by striking at the heart of Wistech; and now it seems the Four Lances of Betrayal, former companions of the Seven Heroes who betrayed their comrades, are BackFromTheDead and stirring up touble in the hinterlands. seems like a recipe for a cliché WhiteAndBlackMorality setting, no? '''Wrong.''' [[spoiler:It turns out [[FakeUltimateHero the Seven Heroes are frauds]]; [[DirtyCoward they panicked and chose to stay behind]] after reaching the border, and when their four former TrueCompanions came back after successfully completing their mission, the "heroes" [[MoralEventHorizon ambushed and slaughtered them]] and demonized them into the Four Lances of Betrayal to cover their own asses. After their return, the "heroes" [[VillainWithGoodPublicity were acclaimed throughout the empire]] and got positions of power and prestige as nobility, [[AristocratsAreEvil which they proceeded to abuse and reign oppressively over the populace]]; at least two devolved into monsters, one [[DrivenToMadness went batshit crazy from guilt and paranoia]], and the rest are at the very least flagrant {{hypocrite}}s. The Four Lances stirring up trouble are also fakes using the name as free publicity.]] And that's not mentionning the FantasticRacism towards those with elven/fairy blood, the numerous other corrupt assholes which liberally pepper the setting, or the fact that TheHero, an AntiHero on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge [[spoiler:against the Seven Heroes, as he's one of the true Four Lances, mysteriously recovered from the massacre]], is still one of the more morally upright main characters bar some others in his current group. And of course, after several good-guy victories and a slowly building HopeSpot for the setting in general, come volume 9 and 10, things go downhill again.
