* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' takes place after a massive global war between humanity and the artificially-intelligent Omnics. Racial tensions still brew between the two throughout the world, and some of the playable characters have varying degrees of misgivings towards machines, from simple distrust (Zarya is wary of Genji, even though Genji is a human who had been converted into a cyborg, and of Omnic characters like Zenyatta and Bastion) to full-blown racism (Torbjorn praises the British for poo-pooing on Omnics and reacts with disgust when fighting in Numbani, a city where humans and Omnics co-exist peacefully).

** 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. [[spoiler:They don't even make an exception for one of their own loyal members when he's outed as a Synth]].

* In ''Videogame/{{Drakengard3}}'', Mikhail ''hates'' Wyverns, seeing them as nothing but pathetic Dragon-wannabes and enjoys slaughtering them whenever he encounters them. It's particularly jarring since Mikhail is otherwise the sweetest and nicest character in the entire series.

** The universal racial/species insult is to address an individual by the name of their species, especially so if one already knows the name of who they're talking to. This applies across the board.

It can get a bit awkward with the Volus; calling someone "whatever-clan" is just being polite, although we do see a few use insulting variants just to be dicks.

*** The [[DraconicHumanoid Au Ra]] are noted as being the playable race most frequently subject to this due to their unusual appearance. For this reason, Yugiri opts to keep her face and horns hidden initially, believing it would only would only make it more difficult to earn the trust of others (Though once she does, she has no issues with leaving her mask off). On a more tragic note, the Ishgardians slaughtered most of the first wave of Auri refugees to arrive in Eorzea from overseas, mistaking them for a new breed of their mortal enemies, the dragons of Dravania, and disregarding the mercy they showed them after their initial small-scale attacks.

* ''GuildWars'' did not delve into this extensively until the ''Eye of the North'' and its sequel gave non-human races a significant role in the story. The Stone Summit are dwarves who believe all other races are only worthy of being slaves. The Centaur and Tengu are deeply resentful of other races, particularly humans, for infringing on their territory and humans often treat them as little more than beasts. The Ministry of Purity espoused the extermination or exile of all non-humans, and the Emperors have adopted that belief. Charr and humans have a deep-seated hatred for one another reaching back centuries due to their constant wars for control of Ascalon. Asurans in general classify skrit as vermin that should be exterminated while the Inquest views all other races as fit only for labor.

** ''VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar'' includes an antagonist race called the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Vile Tribe]] who were cast into a FantasticGhetto a really long time ago.

** ''VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar'' includes an antagonist race called the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Vile Tribe]] who were cast into a FantasticGhetto a really long time ago. The "good" races think of them as boogeymen and dread their possible return.



''[[VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue Eternal Blue]]'' might be the only game in the series that doesn't have some Fantastic Racism against the Vile Tribe (if you don't count the ''Childhood's End'' tie-in manga).
