* In ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' centuries-long brutal persecution of Wesen is common. Monroe even says that Pogroms and Witch Hunts were actually anti-Wesen attacks and also Nick’s ancestors sometimes killed even peaceful and harmless Wesens like the [[TurtlePower Genio innocuo]]. There’s also Wesen on Wesen racism; Monroe’s parents at first don’t approve Monroe’s relationship with Bree because he’s a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Blutbad]] and she’s a [[FantasticFoxes Fuchsbau]] (nor they approve Moroe’s and Nick friendship because Nick is a Grimm). Also a long term animosity between Blutbad and [[PigMan Bauerschwein]] exists. Monroe also seems to believe that [[NiceMice Mauzherz]] are dirty (or at least shouldn't run a restaurant).

* 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) can make one 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:

* On ''Series/TheHauntedHathaways'', it is almost considered a crime against nature in the ghost world for ghosts to be friends with humans.

* In ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'', the relations between humans and machines are strained, to say the least, especially between the human Techcom resistance fighters and the reprogrammed Terminators working under them. This is especially prevalent among Sarah Connor and Derek Reese, who are both prejudiced against machines (for good reason). At one point late in the second season, when [[spoiler: Riley is killed]], both Sarah and Derek immediately blame [[RobotGirl Cameron]] for it despite a lack of real evidence she was behind it, and both consider destroying her because of it.
** Also, the disapproval expressed by pretty much everyone towards John and Cameron's relationship [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything seems rather reminiscent]] of the prejudices against interracial relationships. Sarah implicitly states that she does not believe that Cameron actually loves John, and the idea that the two might be having sex plays a role in an [[AllJustADream extended dream sequence meant to represent her anxieties]]; Derek is openly hostile to their relationship; and [[ManipulativeBastard Jesse]] even goes out of her way in order to try and break them up.
** One entire episode, "The Last Voyage of the Jimmy Carter," dealt with the inherent distrust between humans and the machines. It got to the point where the human TooDumbToLive submarine crew, under the command of a Terminator with specific orders from John Connor, began to mutiny because they did not trust the submarine's captain.
*** It's that distrust that causes all the deaths among the crew and the loss of the submarine.
* On SavedByTheBell, the "Malibu Sands" episodes feature an example where a character's dislike of an entire state borders on this. Stacy Carosi initially has a rather fervent and irrational hatred of people from California, openly accusing them all of being airheads and Surfer Dude stereotypes, and declaring that she has no time for their supposed ditziness because "I'm from the East Coast." However, her FoeYay with Zack eventually turns into a romance and she ends up changing her mind about Californians, and Stacy actually ends up transforming into a friendly, ReasonableAuthorityFigure towards the end of her arc.

* ''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.
