* ''Fanfic/BloodAndHonor'': As an alien, Vette deals with a good deal of prejudice from the various Imperials she encounters, including Quinn. Most refuse to even use her name.

* In ''Fanfic/TheUltimateEvil'', the Demon Sorcerers have a low opinion on humans in general and consider them to be beneath them in every aspect. When they find out that [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Shendu]] has found his [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil Other]] in the form of a human woman named Valerie Payne, [[{{Cthulhumanoid}} Bai Tza]] and [[PsychoElectro Tchang Zu]] in particular become vexed by this and are the most eager to kill Valerie, considering it to be a disgrace to them if their brother binds her to himself and/or consorts with her (despite the fact that more than one of the male Demon Sorcerers have engaged in carnal desires with human slaves).

* A Discworld "South Africa" has been introduced in FanFiction, which combines both the "mundane" racism inherent in apartheid with the "fantastic" racism of the Discworld - for instance, Igors are not appreciated in "Rimwards Howondaland" because they have a terrible habit of matching serviceable parts from black-skinned people to white-skinned people who, well, need serviceable parts. This is held by the authorities to be a seditious plot to bring apartheid into disrepute.

White Howondaland also has problems the old South Africa did not have. How do you racially classify the status of Dwarfs, Trolls, goblins, and the apparently blue-skinned [=NacMacFeegle=]? refer to the ExpandedUniverse of author Creator/AAPessimal for more.

* ''FanFic/ABriefHistoryOfEquestria'', which focuses on the founding of the nation, naturally delves into this. FantasticSlurs crop up (Earth ponies get two: groundpounders from pegasi, and muddies from unicorns). Most of the unicorn nobility are very much against going anywhere near earth ponies on general principle, seeing them as nothing more than a whole race of servants, while the pegasi don't think highly of anyone who can't fly. It leads to a major upset in one battle, when an army of earth ponies manage to fight off a unicorn militia using ''pies'', and only suffer one casualty in the process (and that poor soul only died because they choked on a sandwich). Commander Hurricane is more progressive than the average Pegasus (which isn't saying much), but when he learns an Earth pony is in a relationship with his daughter, and got her pregnant, he tries to kill the guy. Of course, Chancellor Puddinghead's [[BlatantLies diplomatic response]] didn't help. And even after the Hearth Warming, there's still a lot of hurdles to overcome, for everyone, as Hurricane's last son (by Clover the Clever) finds out first-hoof -- being a unicorn in the pegasus-dominated military, he only makes officer status out of respect of his father, while being sidelined for any real advancement in favor of less experienced and competent pegasi. [[spoiler: This policy ends up costing Equestria during the Talonhoof Assault.]]
* FantasticRacism and race/species relations are certainly among the major themes in ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/142256/citizen-weevil/ Citizen Weevil]]'', in which a changeling family, amongst thousands of others at a time of mass migration, have immigrated to Equestria and are now living in the Six Points, a deprived multi-species district in Lower Manehattan where there lives ponies, changelings, diamond dogs, griffins, etc. Although, unlike many other MLP fanfics discussing racism, the majority of cases are that of casual and institutional racism and cultural clashes instead of full on oppression as these are immigrants legally allowed entry into the country.

** In universe it goes both ways. Equestrians tend to see humans as brutes, savages, and violent monkeys. Humans see Equestrians as invaders, and worse than murderers for the use of potions on people. Slurs tend to either relate to humans being primates, or referring to Equestrians as Gluesticks, Mary-Go-Round toys, and other such terms.

* In [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]], it does seem that the binds of racism do run deep in Equestria, being the cause of social and political unrest a few times.
** The [[LemonyNarrator narrator]] of course, is herself a great example of Fantastic Racism, and goes as far to put down the other races while raising Earth ponies up on a pedestal whenever possible. She also seems to have an irrational hatred of griffins, goats, and a whole bunch of other races. This trait of hers is [[PlayedForLaughs played up for laughs though]].

* In ''Fanfic/MyLittleUnicorn'' members of Starfleet tend to point out quite often, how much superior they are compared to Equestrians.

* Other fics bring up the old issues between the three pony tribes. ''Fanfic/RitesOfAscension'' sees a noble fined 200,000 bits for tossing a slur like that. And the issue, as far as Celestia and Luna are concerned, is that the amount is too LOW. Twilight's mother does the same thing in front of Celestia ...
* In ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', there ''is racism,'' but isn't very common. It exists, it's harmed some characters in the past, but it is not a common belif, and Celestia is ''not'' happy it exists at all. Surprising, in [[BadFuture Dark World]], it seems even ''less'' common.
* {{Fanon}} has created many FantasticSlurs for Fantastic Racism involving ponies. "Mud ponies", for example, is one commonly used for earth ponies as is "dirt pony". Unicorns are sometimes referred to as "narwhals" or "screwheads". "Featherduster" and "featherbrain" have cropped up for Pegasi.

to:

* ''Fanfic/AChangedWorld'' has traditional racism, albeit between different kinds of Bajorans. By the traditional Bajoran caste system, Eleya and her family are ''Ke'lora'', the tradesmen, laborers, and lawmen. Shad Yima's crew are ''Va'telo'' (spacers, pilots and sailors), higher-caste than Eleya, and Shad criticizes Eleya for working above her station. Gaarra, Eleya's significant other, is higher still at ''Mi'tino'' (merchants and landowners), and offscreen Shad's XO apparently made some derogatory remarks about their inter-caste relationship. Shad also throws a Bajoran-on-Bajoran racial slur of some kind at Eleya, "Kendra ''shak'tet''". [[spoiler:Eleya later realizes she's racist against Klingons.]]

* ''Blog/AlwaysHavingJuice'' features some FantasticRacism between Overlanders and Mobians. Seeing as they all live on an alien planet, they don't seem to care about skin color so much as whether or not the person they're looking at has a tail. It came to a head in [[WorldWarII Surface War II]], when the Alemanian (FantasyCounterpartCulture of Germany) war general UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler declared war against the Mobians living on the Floating Islands, almost exterminating them in the process. Oh, [[AndZoidberg and there's also some discrimination against homosexuals and Jewish people]], but that's not quite as fantastic.
