** Human/robot prejudice seems to be a common plot device. [[RoboticPsychopath Bender]] often proudly proclaims a hatred of the human species; he [[CatchPhrase loves to say]] "[[CallAHumanAMeatbag meatbags]]" and "{{kill all humans}}", and in fact he really does dream of waging war against mankind some day (though he'll make a few exceptions, such as his [[HeterosexualLifePartners best friend Fry]]).

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS20E4TreehouseOfHorrorXIX XIX]]'' segment "It's the Grand Pumpkin, Milhouse". Nelson [[ItMakesSenseInContext threatens a yellow pumpkin with a knife]] in order to not be [[ToServeMan eaten by the]] [[PlantPerson Grand Pumpkin]], who just points out that he doesn't care about yellow pumpkins. When Nelson calls the Grand Pumpkin a racist, he claims that "All pumpkins are racist, the difference is that I admit it." Not to mention that upon death, Grandie spouts something about "Pumpkin segregation forever!"

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': Though the show is light hearted and colorful with [[BlackComedyBurst Black Comedy Bursts]], the show slowly reveals a fairly harsh case of this. The monsters [[CharacterTitle Star]] gleefully fights turn out to have few other employment options other than as the Mooks to a ManChild. Star's ancestors massacred the monsters off their lands and jealously guard the food they grow, forcing the monsters to scrape a living in the swamps.

Though the show is light hearted and colorful with [[BlackComedyBurst Black Comedy Bursts]], the occasional dose of black comedy]], the show slowly reveals a fairly harsh case of this. The monsters [[CharacterTitle Star]] gleefully fights turn out to have few other employment options other than as the Mooks to a ManChild. According to "Mewnipendence Day", Star's ancestors massacred drove the monsters off their lands lands, and as seen in "On the Job", they jealously guard the food they grow, forcing the monsters to scrape a living in the swamps.swamps.
** In "Starfari", Star tries to go about making things better for Monsterkind, and thinks she's found a kindred spirit in Jelly Goodwell, the Royal Monster Expert. It gradually dawns on Star, however, that Ms. Goodwell thinks the Monsters are little more than animals, and her CondescendingCompassion for the Monsters (and ill-conceived plan to blow up a dam and isolate them in the middle of a lake) is almost as bad as the blatant racism of other Mewmans.
--->'''Star:''' Listen, we can't just go around pulling up dams and imprisoning Monsters! That's ''crazy''! Mewmans have been deciding what's best for Monsters for ''way'' too long!

** Peridot does not think highly of pearls and fusions, to say the least. Some fans jokingly refer to her prejudice as "gemist". Peridot's prejudice is the result of her adherence to Homeworld's FantasticCasteSystem, and is likely shared to some extent by any Homeworld gem. Pearls and [[FusionDance Fusions]] aren't considered people, and Peridot doesn't care for taking orders from them. Oddly, she doesn't have much issue with [[HalfHumanHybrid hybrids]] like Steven, presumably because Steven's completely unique and doesn't ''fit'' in any pre-established caste system. [[spoiler:[[CharacterDevelopment She gets better.]]]]

Also, before discovering Steven's status as a hybrid, she assumes that Steven is a type of quartz (which isn't entirely wrong), and as seen with her interactions with Amethyst, she legitimately ''does'' respect quartzes.

** The episode "Chickens". ''All'' animals are anthropomorphic, so how do they eat meat? An small minority of prey animals are selected to be ''bred for food''; at birth they get injected with hormones, forcing them to behave like stupid beasts incapable of coherent thought or speech, so that there's "less" of a moral dilemma about butchering them. Not only is this outright discrimination, but also legalized slavery and ''cannibalism''.
