* ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'': Hercules despises all gods regardless of where they come from or knowing anything about them. He thinks the world would be better off with all of them dead and does not hesitate to kill compared to showing some hesitation for humans. He doesn't bat an eyelid at learning he caused the deaths of all the Sumarian gods despite them not attacking humanity. Nor the Norse gods even after learning they care about their human worshipers and try to help them. He only restores the latter because their worshippers actually need them to survive.

*** In "Empok Nor", a human Starfleet office makes a racist remark when referring to Cardassians (as "Spoon-heads"). This apparently was background dialogue which wasn't written into the script, nor approved by the showrunners. When the final episode print was viewed by production, they were shocked discover a human of Gene Roddenberry's "perfect" human being era to use a racist term. They left the remark intact after deliberating that the one-time character was under intense pressure to survive a life-or-death situation and therefore, a politically-incorrect slip of the tongue would be realistic.

* On ''Series/{{Shadowhunters}}'', the Shadowhunters see themselves as the superior species because of their roles as protectors and the fact that they are the descendants of Angels. They view the Downworlders (Seelies, warlocks, werewolves, and vampires) as infinitely inferior and untrustworthy, partially because of their demon blood, while they view humans as just weak and worthless. Even most of the protagonists hold these views.

* The [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent half-wolves]] of ''TheTenthKingdom''. Granted, wolves are predators and are traditionally viewed as evil and vicious ([[CyclicTrope at least sometimes]]). But the at-times {{Anvilicious}} words and actions of the Little Lamb Villagers (and Wendell) more than once left this editor feeling a bit ill. (Which was surely the intended effect--just an example where the writer did their work a bit too well.) Choice examples:

** This theme continues into Season 3. While the S.H.I.E.L.D. team have gotten over their own hang-ups (Mack even voluntarily being partnered with [[spoiler: the empowered Skye]]), the sudden widespread epidemic of new Inhumans caused by the mass ecological contamination of terrigen at the end of Season 2 causes a large scale fearful reaction from the general population. This results in the creation of the ATCU agency, which declares all Inhumans (most of whom have no idea what's happening and have no control over their powers) dangerous aliens and enemy combatants to be rounded up with extreme prejudice. [[spoiler: Justified by the reveal that the ATCU was created by HYDRA in order to gather up Inhumans to experiment on.]]


Added DiffLines:

* On ''Series/TheExpanse'', racial politics between Earthers, Martians, and Belters drive a lot of action -- Earth views itself as the only "real" planet, and the rest of the Solar System existing to support its overpopulation; Mars sees Earthers as hedonistic fools who have ruined their planet and want to drag everyone else down with them; both planets see the Belters as savages; and the Belters see them in turn as elitists who are trying to rob the Belt of their rightful resources, while treating them as second class citizens. And things are not helped by the fact that generations of living in radically different environments means that the Martians and Belters (especially the latter) are basically HumanSubspecies by this point.

*** This is not just for the Doctor, but for most time-sensitive beings, the TARDIS for example doesn't like him. Also, the immortality of Jack was due ro him becoming a "fact of the timeline."

** During that episode, the Rangers go to see alien contact Piggy at his café where all the aliens and mutants flee when they show up.
--> '''Jack''' Why are they scared of us? ''They're'' the monsters!
--> '''Piggy''' Humans! You're so...ethnocentric! Don't you realize that to them ''you're'' the monsters?

* ''Series/BeingHuman'' certainly plays up the "vampires think of werewolves as mere animals" angle; but there was also this quote invoking the trope directly (after introducing a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombie]]):
