** Then there's the Knights of Genetic Purity, a human supremacist group dedicated to hunting down everyone who isn't baseline human (fewer than 8% of the humans in the known universe fit their standards, and that's not counting HumanSubspecies like the Nietzscheans.)

* ''{{Series/Andromeda}}'':
** Harper ''hates'' Nietzscheans with a vengeance, after spending his formative years on Nietzschean-conquered Earth. The Nietzscheans aren't particularly likeable by anyone's standards except their own, but Harper really takes it to an extreme.
** Conversely, Nietzscheans have nothing but disdain for anyone they deem "genetically inferior", especially baseline humans without genetic engineering (the term "kludge" gets thrown around a lot). The resident Nietzschean ironically gains a grudging respect for Harper for his ability to come out of extremely sticky situations unscathed, in spite of being a "kludge".
** Rev Bem gets a lot of hate for being a Magog, though seeing that his people are an AlwaysChaoticEvil HordeOfAlienLocusts whose [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong reproductive methods]] make the [[{{Franchise/Alien}} Xenomorphs]] look gentle, and Rev is one of fewer than a dozen [[DefectorFromDecadence Defectors From Decadence]], it... makes sense.

*** Sookie lampshaded this in a recent episode where she says it's hard to keep track of which supes hate which.

* On ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' there are definite problems between wizards, werewolves and vampires. Giants seem to be more accepted but there are still tasteless jokes.
** Don't forget the Monster Hunters, who were prepared to hunt down Juliet and her entire family simply for being vampires, despite the fact that they hadn't hurt anyone!
*** Except for the thousands of people they killed.
*** Well, Juliet is nice, but her parents are understandable...

* The one-time character Zula from ''Series/CasteloRaTimBum'' was disliked by the children due to her being [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation colored blue]]. They do get better by the end of the episode, however.

** ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'' reveals that Vulcans tend to be racist towards humans, or at least tolerant of causal racism, with open statements by those in authority that humans like Michael Burnham and half-humans like Spock are considered inferior despite admitting that said individuals are just as smart, if not smarter, than full Vulcans. Even Sarek, [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch who is much more sympathetic toward humans]] shows signs of this as his goal with Burnham was to mold her into essentially a perfect Vulcan, proving that humans could be equal to Vulcans instead of accepting humans as equals on their own terms. Sarek himself is looked at by other Vulcans as something of a CategoryTraitor for even trying.

** Played with in the case of the Doctor's hatred for the Daleks while Clara serves as his companion. Earlier, the Eleventh meets Oswin (an alternate Clara) who's been turned into a Dalek and refuses to admit it. He is seen barely restraining his rage and disgust at the creature, but on the other hand, he acts genuinely torn, as he realises that the essence of the original person still survives to an extent in the Dalek. Overcome, he shows genuine pity and compassion for the victim of the transformation, and the experience brings his rather straightforward view of the Daleks into doubt. When in a later story, the Twelfth experiments with reforming a malfunctioning Dalek, but fails, he acts rather smugly and notes that he's now satisfied with the answer he got. Clara is annoyed by this attitude and even slaps him for it, all the more that he endangered other people in order to sate his curiosity. The Twelfth admits that he should give it another try, and though he [[ultimately fails]] in turning the Dalek to good, he still agrees that it shouldn't dash his hopes for retrying it in the future. If he could turn at least a few Daleks away from hatred, step by step, there might still be hope for them, as monstrous as they are.

* ''Series/{{Sliders}}''': Kromaggs hate homo sapiens to the point they think that learning their language is degrading, and treat them as slave and experiment subjects in all worlds they conquer. They also find [[EyeScream human eyes to be some sort of delicacy]]. Humans on the other hand also hate Kromags or "pig faces" as they call them. In at least one world humans were the bad guys and submit the Kromag to the Holocaust.

* Parodied with Jesus in ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'': the reason why Jesus made so many parables about the Samaritans? Because he had racist views on them. As most people listening to his sermons learn when most of them are surprise on why use Samaritans as an example of “not all of them are bad”.

* ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' has an episode in which Pugsley starts acting like a normal boy, finding interest in things like baseball, the Boy Scouts and a puppy. Of course this is outraging for the family as for them, being normal is incredibly deranged. In an example of tolerance, nevertheless, they do agree to allow him keep his "quirks" and even show [a pretend] interest in them. The funniest part is that this is the equivalent of a very mainstream family dealing with a Goth son but with the inverted roles.
