* In Anime/FushigiNoKuniNoAlice, Speciesism crops up now and then, in particular with the cold blooded and other not so warm and fuzzy type creatures (crows, sometimes rodents and insects).

* Present on both sides of the divide in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', often with bloodshed and tragedy the result. Because Ghouls have to feed on human flesh to satisfy their HorrorHunger, the species are described as natural enemies and humanity has passed the Ghoul Countermeasure Laws to address the problem. This law makes simply being born a Ghoul into a Capital Offense, punishable with immediate execution and most humans consider this a good thing. When Kaneki and Touka visit the headquarters of [[TheHunter CCG]], an office lady cheerfully reassures them that it is fine for a 14-year old girl to be killed because she's [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman just a Ghoul]]. Humans that fail to immediately report someone they suspect to be a Ghoul are subject to imprisonment, and viewed as worst than someone that aided a human murderer. On the flip side, there are some Ghouls that consider humans to be an inferior species and treat them little better than animals.

* In ''{{Sekirei}}'', some of the titular HumanAliens have very negative views on humans, referring to them as "monkeys". This varies from simple disdain to genocidal intentions. Tsukiumi starts out this way, but [[CharacterDevelopment changes]] her view on humans once she meets Minato. [[BigBad Karasuba]], on the other hand, considers humans an inferior species and wants to kill them all for being weak.

* In the anime ''Claymore'' there are female warriors who are hybrids of humans and youma. Only they are able to detect a youma who camouflaged as a human (youma eat human entrails), and to kill him. Nevertheless, almost all humans are afraid of them, or hate them even, and call them derogatory "silver-eyed witches". This looks especially in the Arc in the "holy city" Rabona. The warrior Clare is from a youma seriously injured because she saved two humans in front of him. And one of the rescued humans she referred disparagingly as a monster.

* [[RealityWarper Rustyrose]] from ''Manga/FairyTail'' declares that all non-wizards are trash and deserve to die. When Elfman expresses disgust at this and says that wizards and regular people have to work together for the common good, Rustyrose calls him a fool and says that Elfman and his friends are trash as well.

* The Saiyans of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' were undoubtedly subjected to racism by Freeza and his men, leading up to Freeza single-handedly carrying out a genocide against them by destroying their planet. As we see in some episodes, the remaining Saiyans had to deal with discrimination, and being called [[FantasticSlurs 'filthy monkeys']].
** Freeza's racism is played up even more in ''WebVideo/DragonBallAbridged''. He despises most races he encounters, but [[InsaneTrollLogic claims he's not actually a racist since he just wipes them out rather than hating them]]. After all, he can't quite be a racist against a race that doesn't exist.
---> '''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.''

** From ''Anime/DragonballSuper'', [[spoiler:Zamasu is a Supreme Kai who despises mortal peoples as a whole, seeing them as a "mistake" the gods made when creating the universe. He is disgusted by their imperfections (especially moral imperfections), and believes in annihilating all mortal life for the sake of justice.]]

** [[spoiler:The society outside the Walls, Mare, brutally persecutes the Elodian people (the ancestors of those within the Walls), rounding them all up into ghettos, violently and harshly beating anyone found outside the ghettos, and turning a blind eye to the murder of Elodians. One group of soldiers even feeds a young Elodian girl to their dogs alive for fun. Their reasoning is apparently that the Elodian people had, in the past, enslaved and brutalized the people of Mare in turn.]]

** The attitude of the protagonist against the youkai is sometimes a little "evil". So the protagonists appreciate someone's life a always be higher than the life of a youkai, even if the person is very vicious. You see it especially in the Gatenmaru-Arc, as Inuyasha control of his "dark side" loses, and many bandits kills, which were the worst murderers, rapists and robbers, and have killed just for fun half a village. Although Inuyasha has already killed many youkai from lower grounds, shocked him this act.
** Kagome says even once that Inuyasha has the heart of a human, even though he is a half-youkai. That sounds "strange" when you know that the most innocent character among the protagonists, Shippo, an entire youkai is.

* Subverted in ''Manga/KobayashiSanChiNoMaidDragon. For all the times that characters like Tooru and Iruru keep on saying they hate humans, it's made clear that they're only repeating the same anti-human rhetoric they've had drilled into them since childhood. The fact that humans on Earth, especially Kobayashi, don't show them the same kind of hatred eventually makes them give up their prejudice. That said, their are plenty of dragons who believe that humans are mere animals.

The fact that ''Manga/KobayashiSanChiNoMaidDragon'': Tooru's less than stellar view of humans on Earth, especially Kobayashi, don't show them (Kobayashi being the same kind exception, of hatred eventually makes them give course) comes up their prejudice. That said, their are plenty of multiple times, but it slowly dies down as she adjusts to living on Earth. Other dragons who believe that humans are mere animals.also show signs of this to varying degrees, but it only really gets focus in [[spoiler: [[TragicBigot Iruru's]] character arc]].
