** 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.

* ''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.

** 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 beating by one as the same as being defeated by an actual monkey and fear of a race is a form of racism.

** From the original series, King Piccolo and his children towards humanity. There's no real reason given, just that they saw humans as being lowered than dirt and fun to torment.

* Downplayed in the backstory of ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD''. The Devil race has suffered a severe depopulation thanks to the GreatOffscreenWar, and as such, reincarnated humans are being used to fill out the ranks. Rias explains that at first, reincarnated devils were seen as second-class despite legally being able to hold any position a pure-blooded devil could. However, the [[ChessMotifs Evil Piece]] system encouraged high-class devils to value and eventually respect the reincarnated devils under their command. By the start of the series, most devils will respect anyone who proves capable in the position they've been assigned, and openly being a dick to reincarnated devils for that reason alone is considered a faux pas even among the pure-blooded upper echelons.

* Fate has shown some evidence of this in ''MahouSenseiNegima''. Some of his internal monologues seem to indicate he doesn't consider the people of the Magic World to be ''real''. Except for the human population of Megalosembria, they ''are'' artificial beings who will fade from existence when (''when'', not if) the Mundus Magicus collapses. And far from persecuting them for it, he actually claims he's trying to ''save'' them, in his own twisted way.

* The battle of [=ESPers=] vs. "Normal People" in ''ZettaiKarenChildren'' is one of the underlying themes of the series. Almost all of the [=ESPers=] in the series are under the watch of the government, and it's shown that when someone is discovered to have powers, they're treated harshly for it. Good thing Minamoto serves as MoralityChain to The Children.

Added DiffLines:

** While not explicitly labelled as such, [[spoiler: Milliardo Peacecraft's]] rhetoric in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' final plot arc runs along the same logic as this trope, stating that wars are the result of the result of people living on Earth as opposed to the people living in the colonies. This trope is ultimately subverted however, with the antagonists claiming they don't intend to pursue violence against anyone fleeing the Earth, just the Earth itself.
