* Humanity in ''VideoGame/DetroitBecomeHuman'' is shown to be undoubtedly contemptible and hateful to androids. Some show [[FantasticRacism prejudice and resentment towards androids]] usually for taking their jobs while others own androids and cruelly abuse them, which would lead them into fighting back against them, even killing them. This was directly discussed when Kara frees the android "monsters" tortured and experimented on by Zlatko, who outright say this about their captor. Though it doesn't stop the game from labeling them as monsters anyway for convenience.

** Humanity is so twisted that by Dead Rising 4, [[spoiler:the first-ever ''sentient zombie'' (made of a HiveMind of insects living in the brain) declares war on the human 'Cycle' of insanity - complacent to revenge-driven to power-hungry back to complacence again]].

** In the same note, ''TalesOfPhantasia'' has the elves once again hating half-elves and humans. They distanced themselves from humans when they began to work on the Mana Cannon, a powerful weapon that uses up the world's mana and will cause the world tree to wither and die, and have since been living in their village, refusing contact with humans unless they have royal permission. Their exact reasons for their hatred towards half-elves is never really explained (it could be because half-elves who do not grow up among several elves do not have the same values, perhaps) but it is much more intense than their hatred towards humans. Half-elves are not permitted in the elven village, any half-elf that ''does'' enter the village will be killed, etc. Though when you return [[spoiler: in the future time, 50 years from the present,]] the leader of the elves Brambard does reveal that they are improving themselves, allowing humans to enter the village without royal decree, but half-elves are still forbidden. Then you recall that Phantasia is supposed to be a very distant sequel to [[TalesOfSymphonia Symphonia]]...

* In ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'', this is a major contributor to Will's love of monsters. The acts people confessed to him during his time as a preacher and the contracts he was hired for as an assassin left him jaded and disappointed with people. He respected that despite being called "evil", most monsters are simply animals following their instincts.

* Used for BlackHumor in ''VideoGame/AttackOfTheEarthlings''. Even the HordeOfAlienLocusts looks heroic when pitted against human greed and stupidity in its purest form...

** In the games proper, it's generally averted as the each group of four never encounter people that they have to shoot until they turn into zombies, like the Church Bell Guy. Most of the people they meet are actually the people who rescue them. Even in ''The Sacrifice'' comic, the most abhorrent actions done by uninfected are a direct response to the threat.
** In ''The Parish'' level of ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'', however, you run into piles of uninfected bodies and you see soldiers have been tallying human kills and infected kills. The trope is still downplayed though, since these soldiers are probably under orders to contain the disease given the existence of [[spoiler: carriers.]]

* While the {{Tron}} movies centered on AIIsACrapshoot, ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'' went this route instead. The Programs were just trying to carry out their functions and mind their business when a small group of insanely greedy humans decided they liked the idea of [[AGodAmI virtual godhood]] a bit too much, and planned to conquer the digital world with an army of mercenaries, enslave the Programs, and rule the world from the shadows by blackmailing world leaders and manipulating global finance and media.

* The twist regarding the BigBad of the original ''VideoGame/DigimonWorld'' is that it's not Analogmon, it's Analog''man'', which is the screename of an adult human hacker who has discovered and invaded the Digital World, which he intends to enslave, convinced that Digimon exist only to serve humanity.

* ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'': Every god you encounter is a DeityOfHumanOrigin, and all of them but one are JerkassGods. Sin, the one god who valued humanity for more than being worshipers or food, created the Beast to drain the powers of the gods and keep them in an eternal dream state. Unfortunately, since the Beast fulfilled its purpose just by existing Sin did not give the Beast any ambitions or desires, leaving it vulnerable to human thaumaturges who tried to use its power for their own ambitions. Attempts to tap the Beast's power destroyed civilization across Wraeclast twice and left the continent steeped in corruption.
