** The giants also get treated on the same level as a tank. They don't really like that. That's only really by the marines though, some are highly respected people and are treated as honorable guests.
** There's also the Long-arm tribe looking for "rare people with only one joint in their arms" to put on display, or the occasional flickers of fantastic racism towards Brook (for looking like a monster) and more subtly Franky (looks like a monster without his fake skin). Basically you can be any skin color you want and no one will mind, but if you don't look human enough for the OP world's tastes things are gonna be rough.

*** Oddly, Oda's good intentions seem to have span rare out-of-universe exemples. If you lookin the forums you may find etrange hate speed directed to non-human races. The reasons are being physically repulsive (fishmen) being overly overly naive and annoying (dwarves) or being just plain stupid and barbaric (giants). This has gotten so bad that some have been innediqtemy starting to hate a character (Dellinger or Jack ) thqt they were liking until then just upon the reveql that he hqd sone non-human genes!!

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

*** [[spoiler:The rest of the world hate the Eldians too. And the Eldians on the mainland who live in Marley hate the Eldians who "ran away" to the island of Paradis (where the main characters are). The only way for the Marley Eldians to escape this persecution is to go to Paradis and retrieve the Founding Titan's Coordinate ability (which Eren possesses).

* ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'': Tohru's less than stellar view of humans (Kobayashi being the exception, of course) comes up multiple times, but it slowly dies down as she adjusts to living on Earth. Other dragons also show signs of this to varying degrees, but it only really gets focus in [[spoiler: [[TragicBigot Iruru's]] character arc]].

* Done in both [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist the manga]] and [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the anime]] versions of ''Fullmetal Alchemist'', with the persecution and attempted genocide of the Ishvalan people. They are visually identifiable by their red eyes and dark skin, and various characters use hats and sunglasses to disguise these traits. Several aspects of the Ishvalans' portrayal hint more specifically at a metaphorically Islamic culture: their vaguely Middle Eastern dress, Ishval's desert landscape, and their monotheistic religion and the tensions arising from its prohibition of alchemy and the Amestrians' contrasting dependence upon it.
** There's also the Ishvalan prejudice or prosecution of alchemists. This is somewhat more understandable, since the alchemists were responsible for the aforementioned genocide in the first place.
** Ishvalans were prejudiced against alchemists even before the genocide started since according to their religion, only their god Ishval has the power to create and destroy things, and attempting to imitate this is both blasphemous and against the natural order. In fact, Scar's brother was deemed a heretic when he studied alchemy, as opposed to Scar himself, who was loved by his people due to being a devout follower of their religion.

The State Alchemists' participation in the genocide has definitely not helped matters on that front.

* 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.
