* In ''RockosModernLife'', Filbert and Paula's [[ParentalMarriageVeto families]] don't approve of their upcoming nuptials because "cats and turtles don't mix." [[spoiler: It's later revealed that Paula's father is a turtle, and her mother is just crazy.]] The two end up [[MyOwnPrivateIDo going to a drive-thru chapel instead of having a big-to-do ceremony in front of their]] FeudingFamilies.

* The dingoes in ''WesternAnimation/BlinkyBill''. But most of them are troublemakers with the exception of poor [[TheWoobie Shifty]].

** Any Character that isn't a Pony ''will'' be subjected to this one way or another. Even lampshaded with in the show itself. If a character appears to be a major part in an episode, but isn't a Pony, chances are they're going to be an [[ObviouslyEvil outright villain]], a DesignatedVillain, a mere {{Jerkass}} or just shown in a less sympathetic light if they aren't jerkish nor evil. Double Bonus if you happen to be a ''Dragon''. Yes, this even ''includes'' [[ButtMonkey Spike]]. The ''many'' examples below:

*** Inverted in "The Cutie Pox"; Zecora shows up in Ponyville to find everypony panicking and running for shelter, and initially assumes they're reacting this way to her before Twilight tells her what's actually scaring them.

* Some amount of Fantastic Racism appears in ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' against [=EVOs=]. They generally inspire fear or hatred, when they appear, including [[TheHero main character]], who is frown upon by his own employer. There is also a guy who hunts teenagers down with a giant gun and believes in “KillItWithFire” instead of using TheCure. Considering that most of them are mindless monsters and sapient ones known to general public either [[DestructiveSaviour cause major property damage]] (Rex) or perform various acts of terrorism in name of “equality” (The Pack) this treatment may be justified. There is no defined line humanity-EVO s, because this condition is in most cases curable and not only people can went EVO, but also animals, plant or even '''eggs'''.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ExoSquad'', humans often call Neosapiens "sapes" or "neos". The Neosapiens themselves view themselves as the Superior Species, and thus call humans 'Terrans'. Neosapiens also show racism towards the Neo Warriors, [[MyCountryRightOrWrong General Shiva]] regards them, even the advanced, talking models, as simple animals.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ExoSquad'', humans often call Neosapiens "sapes" "Sapes" or "neos". "Neos". (Note that "Neos" is considered an acceptable everyday term, while "Sapes" is more like a slur, and at one point an officer takes some time to dress down one of his troopers for using the latter term.) The Neosapiens themselves view themselves as the Superior Species, and thus call humans 'Terrans'. Neosapiens also show racism towards the Neo Warriors, a breed of animalistic warriors created to fight for them. [[MyCountryRightOrWrong General Shiva]] regards them, even the advanced, talking models, somewhat more advanced versions with rudimentary speech as simple animals.

* One particularly episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', "Troq", dealt with Starfire dealing with the racism Tamaranians apparently are known to receive (Troq being a FantasticSlur for Tamaranians).

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Chaotic}}'', there is ''fantastic jingoism''. One can interpret that all the landbased tribes of Perim are engaged in four way holy war over who is blame for having the [[CrystalDragonJesus Cothica]] disappear and ending the [[{{Gotterdammerung}} Golden Age]]. Then came the M'arrilians who exhibited big time FantasticRacism by choosing to flood the planet by heat-ray melting of the ice caps, even though there is plenty of existing oceans assuming Perim is an Earth-like planet.

** Although in the humans' case, it's somewhat justified. The majority of humanity's first experiences with ghosts stemmed from an attack by a group of Danny's enemies from the Ghost Zone. Until that point, it was the people that ''believed'' in them were the ones that were ridiculed. The reason [[AlphaBitch Paulina]] was amongst the first to stop hating Danny was because Danny outright saved her life, at which point she started to idolize him.
** Somewhat strangely, as a whole the ghosts actually seem to be the more accepting of the two 'species', since non-hostile ghosts don't have any problem with Danny being half-human (they don't really seem to have any objections to humans either) and apart from one or two exceptions any hostility on the part of the ghosts that Danny fights with is more to do with him being in their way, their obcessions, and/or grudges about previous defeats rather than him being a halfa, not to mention that the events of ''The Fright Before Christmas'' heavily imply that in a weird way they see him as being one of them ("Tomorrow you'll see what *this* baby can do! /... But all ghosts share the truce... even half-ghosts like you. "). BlueAndOrangeMorality may apply.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', it's strongly that implied fairies tend to look down on other races, specifically anti-fairies, pixies, and genies. Aside from a few FantasticSlurs, this is never really explored.

** In the former episode, Sandy isn't above engaging in some racism herself, to the point where she brags about land-dwelling creatures being good at ''fishing''. Yeesh.
