* In ''FanFic/AGreatAndPowerfulHeart'', Trixie has the misfortune of touring Promise, a town founded by Filli Terram, a group of Earth Pony supremacists. The townspeople shows enormous disdain for her magic abilities, and the sheriff unjustly imprisons Trixie, pushing her into doing his bidding.

* In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', the racism of the Guardian Spectrem pops up whenever he has to deal with a nonhuman race. He is highly offended when Paul and George persist in treating nonhumans decently.

* ''FanFic/ABrighterDark'': As opposed to being a MarySuetopia like in the game, Hoshido is shown to have many of the cultural flaws of its real life counterpart. The most abundant being severe discrimination against not just foreigners, but everything deemed to be non-Hoshidan (including Nohrians, tribals, non-humans, and shapechangers).

* 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 "[[TheApartheidEra 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 (as well as the regrettable habit of vampires to mingle black and wihte blood as if it didn't matter) 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.

* This trope also pops up a few times in the ''Fanfic/BloomingMoonChronicles''; most prominently in Starlit Knights. In ancient times, earth ponies were used as slaves, and referred to as "slave hooves". Racism generally has declined over time in most parts of Equestria, but some places, such as the town of North Neigh, still practice unicorn-supremacist beliefs.

* ''Fanfic/{{Ripples}}'' has multiple examples:
** [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Changelings]] are viewed as abominations by the rest of Meridian, driven to the edges of society and forced to on the scraps they can hunt and scrape together.
** [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Lurdens]] are also looked down on. Their species' name is at least once used to name-call someone else in an insultive manner.
** Will, having been [[BalefulPolymorph transformed into a frog-like being]] faces this, even more so after her second transformation makes those traits dominant.
** Doctors are viewed as heretics by many like [[TheFundamentalist Allora]] and more closed minded church members since they heal others without using magic.

* Ubiquitous in ''Fanfic/UnderTheNorthernLights''. Ponies about reindeer, reindeer about ponies, the zebra Paki abouth both categories, etc. In many cases it is not just mutual prejudice, it is also relatively low-key and consists of misunderstanding and underestimating the other, rather than outright oppression. The latter happens, though. Reindeer treat the Russ (immigrant dwarf Earth ponies) and the Urox (native aurochs) as second-class citizens, and we learn that ponies used to do the same to cattle, sheep and so on, who used to be slaves. Not everyone is racist over the board, either: the pirates of the Crimson Kraken are happily multi-cultural, but have a very negative view of "primitives" like the reindeer and the ponies from Tropical Island.
* FanFic/WhatHathJoinedTogether sees Equestria using a FantasticCasteSystem with social standing depending on race. For the most part, it's restricted to job and marriage opportunities and different races are still encouraged to get along, but stepping outside of your races' privilege is a faux pas at best and an actual crime at worst.

* In ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', there ''is'' racism, but isn't ''Fanfic/TriptychContinuum'': The fact that many ponies don't think very common. It exists, highly of those outside their particular "tribe" is a very prominent aspect of the story. Unlike many such stories in the FiM fandom, it's harmed not purely a case of unicorn supremacists; indeed, earth ponies seem to be just as prone to it as unicorns, perhaps even more so after all, earth ponies are the only tribe who considers it necessary to actively hide the true extent of their powers, whilst unicorns and pegasi freely talk about the nuances of their abilities if asked. Applejack herself is a PoliticallyIncorrectHero with some characters unconsciously hypocritical views, whilst Pinkie Pie's father was a fanatic bigot who even looked down upon earth ponies who didn't hate unicorns and pegasi as much as he did, an attitude that is implied to be common amongst rock farmers.
