** 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".

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' TheEmpire looks down on aliens, and it's rare for them to serve in high-ranking positions within the Empire. The Grand Inquisitor is one of the few exceptions.

Added DiffLines:

** A case of this turns up in "[=SpongeGuard=] On Duty" when [=SpongeBob=] tries to deter people from going into the water by warning that there are sharks in there, only to offend a family of sharks. He then tries to say that the water isn't safe because sea monsters are there, but that isn't any better and results in a bespectacled sea monster replying with "You know, we sea monsters have made great strides in the fields of science and literature".

Added DiffLines:

** Hermes Conrad is strongly implied to hate decapodians as evidenced by his interactions with Zoidberg. Hermes frequently and spitefully calls Zoidberg "ya filthy crab", which if taken into context is considered to be a racist slur because crabs are crustaceans while decapodians are aliens with many crustacean features. The show does not have Hermes interact with other decapodians but the way he has treated Zoidberg throughout the series while compared to how he treats the other members of Planet Express does give Hermes this vibe. In fact, the implication of his hatred towards decapodians could be the main reason why he hates Zoidberg.


Added DiffLines:

** Ironically, Bender is also a strong advocate of robot rights and in " Ghosts In The Machines" he decides to kill himself after he gets convinced that Fry perceives robots as having less life value than humans.

* Possibly the earliest televised example of this was Creator/{{Rankin Bass|Productions}}' ''{{Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer}}'', where Rudolph was a perfectly normal, healthy baby reindeer...whose nose happened to glow red on command. Almost everyone the poor thing encountered, from his own father to ''SantaClaus'', rejected him because of it. (At least his mother loved him just the way he was).
