* In the ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies1980s'' episode "Tuffy Gets Fluffy", Whopper and Bright Eyes are shown to have negative feelings about cats. Thankfully, they learn in the end that not all cats are bad.

* The wolves in ''WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega'' use the word "coyote" as an insult for one another. As implied via the other animals they talk to, wolves clearly aren't the only sentient species around.

*** From the other side of things, ponies consider dragons other than Spike to be violent animals, to the point where someone skilled at controlling wild animals is considered the best choice for dealing with them. While the dragons seen so far do live down to their reputation, that's still insulting.



** There are several instances, particularly in "Sweet and Elite" and "Simple Ways", of unicorns looking down on or at the very least condescending to earth ponies, particularly Trenderhoof's seemingly innocuous line about having "respect for the work ethic of earth ponies".
** In "The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone", Rainbow Dash is shown to have based her opinion on griffons on her (negative) experiences with Gilda the Griffon.
-->'''Twilight Sparkle''': I don't know if either of you have read Bygone Griffons of Greatness, but griffons were known to beó\\
'''Rainbow Dash''': Rude, insensitive bullies?
** Adding to the rather [[ButtMonkey long list of flak the poor little guy takes]], in "Princess Spike" one Canterlot citizen rather coldly tells Spike, a ''young child'', "No offense, but I don't need some random dragon's opinion".

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DaveyAndGoliath'' episode, "The Polka Dot Tie", Davey and friends bully a boy (who was, in fact, black) for wearing a polka dot tie (It was because Davey's friend's father knew a guy with a polka dot tie who "he couldn't trust") In a later episode, Goliath doesn't like a white dog for being white. Actually, the main story of this episode was Davey's black friend Jonathan's, cousin, who didn't like white people, was in town, and he was blindfolded because he had an accident with his older brother's chemistry set. Jonathan tries to teach him a lesson by introducing him to Davey, who was white, and letting them become friends.

** Ratchet of the Autobots is also openly contemptuous of flesh-creatures, their technology and culture. He so assured of Cybertronian superiority that he does not even ''bother'' to learn about human physiology and medicine: This comes back to haunt him '''big'''-time when a human child that he has unwittingly come to love is mortally-wounded by Megatron, and panics in desperation as he does not know the '''first''' thing to do to save his life.

Added DiffLines:

* A race of anthropomorphic canids (since calling them the "D" word would be a big No-no) in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' are extreamly offended (to a point of murderous intent) when being called a dog, beeing called dog names (Rover) or having their behaviour compared to typicall dog behaviour. Scaramouche manages to do all that during one short argument.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/WhateverHappenedToRobotJones'' had this happen both ways. The title character is frequently ridiculed and ostracized for being a robot, while his family often views humans as being inferior to robots.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'': Sometimes it seems Jenny can't go anywhere without someone belittling her (like the Krust cousins) or telling her to GTFO (like the owner of Mesmer's diner) simply because she's a robot.



* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' Treehouse of Horror XIX, Nelson threatens a yellow pumpkin with a knife in order to not be eaten by the Grand Pumpkin, who just points out that he doesn't care for a yellow pumpkin. When Nelson states that the Grand Pumpkin is a racist, he says "All pumpkins are racists".
** Not to mention upon death, Grandie spouts something about pumpkin segregation forever.



** Agent Kallus seems to be this, though most of it has been against Lasats. [[spoiler:It turns out it's from a misplaced grudge, due to [[DarkAndTroubledPast trauma]] from seeing his first unit getting killed by a mercenary that just so happened to be a Lasat]]. He once tried to harass Hera for being a [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Twi'lek]] when they met in [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS1E10VisionOfHope "Vision of Hope"]], as well as Rex (a clone) in [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS2E02RelicsOfTheOldRepublic "Relics of the Old Republic"]].

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** 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.]]]]
** Gems in general tend to be pretty dismissive of humans, with even the heroic Crystal Gems rarely treating them as equals. Pearl in particular can be very smugly dismissive.
** Early homeworld found the idea of two different kinds of gems fusing unacceptable.
** There's also this exchange when they see Yellow Diamond's Pearl:
--->'''Steven:''' Who's that?\\
'''Pearl:''' ''(annoyed)'' Not all Pearls know each other, Steven.



* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' displays a world with a multitude of races, all of whom are [[CulturalPosturing smugly condescending]] to each other on a regular basis. In particular, the Iop ethnicity is treated collectively as a pack of over-aggressive meatheads; you could make a drinking game using every time someone being stupid is referred to as "Iop-brain".
