* ''VideoGame/InFamous2'''s antagonists are the [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic Militia]], a [[MugglePower normal-supremacist]] gang trying to rid the city of New Marais of all [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual the superhuman Conduits]]. [[spoiler:Ironically, their leader [[CorruptHick Joseph Bertrand]] is not only a [[BoomerangBigot closeted self-hating Conduit]], but he was [[RunningBothSides also responsible for creating the Corrupted monsters]].]]
** This gets taken further in the sequel ''VideoGame/InfamousSecondSon'', where the fear of Conduits has become so widespread, that a new US government agency (the [[CapeBusters Department of Unified Protection]]) was created to track down and imprison all "[[FantasticSlur Bio-terrorists]]". Ironically, the DUP leader Brooke Augustine [[HunterOfHisOwnKind is also a Conduit herself]], and her henchmen were all given [[DishingOutDirt her powers]].

* ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'':
** The Crystalia and Souval races are the victim of this as both are viewed as troublemakers by the other races that inhabit the island. It's a bit more justified than usual, considering the Crystalia radiate deadly cold unless they're in presence of certain individuals and the Souval have a tendancy to Hulk Out, but then any reason they had falls apart when they order genocide on two races that mostly keep to themselves and were native to the island in the first place, while the "regular" races being here is a relatively new thing.
** In a shout-out to ''VideoGame/RageOfBahamut'', there are people with hatred to demons due to the war that took place long in the past. But this led to several Draphs being mistaken for demons to those who had seen such war due to the horns they possess. Evident in Nina's fate episode where a Draph man, being mistaken for a demon, was beaten up by a human who is too hung up in the past to let go of his vendetta of demons. And in Azazel's fate episode, he also mistook an NPC Draph for a demon and mistook the Draph talking with his human co-worker as a form of slavery.

* ''{{Gungnir}}'' has a lot between the Leonicans and the Daltans. The entire reason the game starts is due to the Daltans being extremely oppressive to the Leonicans.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', Dr. Borville claims he can't treat Prince Ralis of the [[FishPeople Zora]] because he is unfamiliar with Zora physiology, but listening in on two women discussing the matter in eastern Hyrule Castle Town indicates that Borville didn't give the boy a full checkup due to prejudice against them.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has the elder Zoras showing contempt towards Link, a Hylian, due to their princess/champion Mipha being killed in battle and held him responsible for it. Because of their princess' death, the elder Zora use the event as an excuse to distrust and even hate Hylians simply because they failed to defeat Calamity Ganon. Some even went so far as to consider the Hylians partially responsible for the Great Calamity given that it was their idea to reactivate the Guardians and [[HumongousMecha Divine Beasts]] that ended up getting possessed by Ganon. The only exception to this was their king who knew that the Hylians weren't at fault. The younger Zora don't hold the same racist views as their elders due to them either not having been born during the tragedy or being too young to remember it. Once Link manages to appease the Divine Beast that's causing the Zora problems, the elders forgive Link and admit that their racist views were wrong.

* In ''VideoGame/SteamWorldHeist'', the Royalist [[DieselPunk dieselbots]] are constantly putting down the poorer frontier [[SteamPunk steambots]]. In addition, the dieselbots are hoarding all the water, even though they don't actually need it as much as the steambots do. [[spoiler:Then there are the voltbots, who just want to wipe out both steambots and dieselbots]].

* ''VisualNovel/WingmanDX'' mentions that the term "chicken wings" is a slur for non-Wings to use. As a human player character, choosing any option that uses this term pisses off several of the Wings. Discrimination against fries also plays an important role in the backstory of the several characters.

* This is what essentially sparked off the story in the ''VideoGame/{{Oddworld}}'' series: Originally the Mudokons and Glukkons were neighbours, until a crater in the shape of a Mudokon pawprint appeared on one of Oddworld's moons. The Mudokons declared that this was a divne sign that they were the 'chosen race', which royally pissed off the Glukkons to the point of closing off their society, turning to industry and enslaving most of the species on Oddworld, starting with the Mudokons. [[SarcasmMode Congratulations.]]
