---> '''Abridged!Freeza:''' ''Ok, first off. 'Super Saiyan'. What is that, what even ''is'' that? I'll tell you what it is; it's some dumb legend that your filthy monkey ancestors passed around a campfire like it was their own dung.''

** Subverted somewhat in that Freeza's real motivation was fear, the racism was mostly a cover. He destroyed their planet because he feared a Saiyan uprising, not because he particularly hated them. However, he still considered them an inferior species since he saw being beaten by one as the same as being defeated by an actual monkey and fear of a race is a form of racism.

* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', [[PettingZooPeople Zoozians]] are more powerful but less populous than the humanoid Endras, so the Endras used their superior numbers to force them into doing the worst labour, and put the ones too weak to work into the FantasticGhetto. Endras tend to instinctively fear Zoozians for their supposed savagery, while Zoozians (justifiably) feel distrust towards the Endras.



* In ''Anime/TimeOfEve'', robots are portrayed as harmless and, in some cases, [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots genuinely good-willed]], not to mention ThreeLawsCompliant, but the [[WellIntentionedExtremist Ethics Committee]] is flat-out against robots integrating into human life, especially if -- [[SarcasmMode God forbid]] -- they begin developing personalities.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has a complicated example with the Fishmen and the Merfolk, humanoid beings that also show characteristics of an aquatic animal. Since the "aquatic animal" part is almost random and they have a lot of possible combinations, neither the Fishmen nor the Mermen discriminate against each other by distinctive traits such as their fish parts. Because of this, is perfectly normal for them that an octopus Mermaid reproduce with a shark Merman and a eel Merman be born as the result, that's also why they can't understand why the Humans classify each other in groups. But even if those species don't discriminate amongst themselves, they do discriminate against other races. Specifically, the Fishmen believe that they're superior to all other races, especially Humans, but that's also complicated because of the discrimination that the Humans have in the One Piece world against them and the Mermen as they were once considered to be on the same level as fish despite being equally as intelligent as humans.
** To be fair, not all Fishmen and Merfolk believe that they're ''superior'' to humans or other races, only certain extremists, though the overwhelming majority does hate and distrust the human race.

*** Taken to the extreme by Hody Jones, who is is so racist [[spoiler: that he's willing to have hundreds, if not thousands, of Fishmen and Merfolk murdered for wishing to be on civil terms with humans. This includes the much-beloved Queen Otohime, for being the figurehead of the movement.]] The real kicker: he flat out admits that [[spoiler:humans have never done anything bad to him personally. He's simply internalized the Fishmen's prejudices against humans.]]

** The Mink tribe from Zou are said to hate humans, and will kill any that step on their turf. [[spoiler:Though this is eventually subverted, as it's merely a false rumor. In truth, the Minks only hate people from their actions as opposed to their race, and are quite friendly with humans when they get to know them.

** For those who don't know, "Pokopen" was a derogatory term for China and the Chinese before and during WorldWarII. It's considered extremely offensive today and usage of the word on Japanese TV is banned.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': There's a ''reason'' they couldn't get away with calling Earth Pokopen in the anime. Though honestly, Pekopon sounds about as evocative of the original as saying the "n" word with the "er" replaced with "a".

** In-universe example: Natsumi hijacks the Keronian's pool, declaring it humans only...with [[HumanAlien Mois]] swimming right next to her. [[MoralMyopia This is just the top of the list.]]

* ''Anime/WolfsRain'' Quent Yaiden's character arc revolves around his hated of wolves, which in this setting are sapient and cast human illusions. [[spoiler: He eventually overcomes this after finding out his beloved "dog" is part wolf. When another wolf dies to save him, it puts the final nail in the coffin of his racism.]]

** Shun and Yuto from the Xyz Dimension are likewise prejudiced against Fusion users, because of the attacks they endured. Yuto at least manages to overcome this when Yuzu learns to Fusion summon, but Shun is universally against Fusion for them kidnapping his sister. He seems to grudgingly get better once Serena [[spoiler: saves his life]], hating Academia directly instead of all fusionists.
