** In ''VideoGame/LunarDragonSong'', the humans, beastmen and the Vile Tribe hate each other. [[ItGetsBetter Eventually the beastmen learn to accept humans]], and the Vile Tribe generally accept anyone who forsakes Althena and own darkness in the form of crystals as their own (near the end a few begin to question themselves).

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' tends to be a very bizarre case. Hylians, who form the general "human" population of Hyrule, are said to be the chosen race of the gods. This actually *does* place them on a superior level to all other races in the kingdom, and only the Gerudo seem all that bothered by it. One of the lamentations of the Downfall Timeline leading to the classic games is that, due to interracial breeding, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything purebloods of the "chosen race"]] are all but extinct.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', certain shop owners refuse to do business with a species other than their own. This is mainly geared towards Deku Scrubs, although the shop owners may simply have qualms about selling dangerous items (such as bombs) [[OlderThanTheyLook to children.]] The guards at every exit of Clock Town refuse to let Link's Deku form by, because [[OlderThanTheyLook it would be dangerous for a child to leave town.]] Similarly, the lady running the [[MinigameZone Treasure Chest Shop]] charges thirty Rupees for Goron Link but only five for Zora Link, though a higher entry fees result in better rewards.

** This gets taken further in the sequel ''VideoGame/InfamousSecondSon'', where the fear of Conduits has become so widespread, that a new government agency (the [[CapeBusters Department of Unified Protection]]) was created to persecute all "[[FantasticSlur Bio-terrorists]]". Ironically, the DUP leader Brooke Augustine [[BoomerangBigot is also one of them]], and her henchmen were all given her powers.

* ''VideoGame/Infamous2'''s antagonists are the [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic Militia]], a redneck gang trying to rid the city of New Marais of [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Conduits]]. [[spoiler:Ironically, their leader Joseph Bertrand is secretly a [[BoomerangBigot self-hating Conduit]], and was [[RunningBothSides also responsible for creating the Corrupted monsters]].]]

** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', the people of Massachusetts are constantly holding {{Witch Hunt}}s for [[FantasticSlur "synths"]], RidiculouslyHumanRobots created by the secretive and malevolent "Institute" to infiltrate wasteland society for nefarious purposes. This would be all fine and dandy if it weren't for the fact that many synths are ''sentient,'' and a good number of them [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters hate the Institute as much as everyone else.]] The Brotherhood of Steel in particular are very anti-mutant as well as anti-Synth.

** Her reveal trailer in SuperSmashBros for Wii U even has her considering the KidIcarus crew the same as the Paradiso angels from her home series, which shows off her dislike for said crew.
