* Subvert ed in ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' with Nereids (Juno in particular). Their view on humans is more like Humans Are Untrustworthy rather than full on Humans Are The Real Monsters. An extra level of subversion kicks in as unlike many examples of this trope, they're more willing to judge on an individual basis. The ones that pass are seen as potential mates. Despite being on opposite sides, Throndyke is still respected as a good man anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/{{Nihilumbra}}'': [[spoiler: Subverted in the City. The narration notes that whoever created the City destroyed whatever environment was there to build it...but then turns around and points out that even so, at least they created something; all Born has done, meanwhile, is allow the Void to consume the world.]]

* [[TheFairFolk The fairies]] in the world of ''{{Drakengard}}'' subscribe to this viewpoint. The protagonist only ever meets two fairies, one of which is the king of fairies, and both of them, besides being [[SmallAnnoyingCreature annoying]], feel this way towards humans to the point of being racist. Humans are big, dumb, ugly, smelly, stinky idiots to the fairies who can never get anything right and always destroy the forests to feed their infernal greed. [[spoiler:It's not like ''they're'' much better, really. When it comes to brass tacks, Leonard's Pact partner is an even dirtier coward, and has a VillainousBreakdown in Ending C when she realizes that Leonard is about to perform a HeroicSacrifice, which due to their link will kill her as well.]]

Caim's dragon is also of this prejudice, but then again, dragons being arrogant and looking down on humans has pretty much [[DeadHorseTrope been done to death.]]

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', humans have done some terrible things. Currently, many elves are former slaves who still have second-class citizen status and lives in city slums. Their Dalish cousins are forced to constantly live a gypsy-like lifestyle and move their camps every few months or so. They still remember their old civilization, which was wiped out by KnightTemplar humans because the elves refused to worship Andraste. Subverted in that the elves also had their bastard moments, such as their first civilization trying to conquer humans. Then there's the Tevinter Imperium, where the ruling magisters can do whatever they please.

'''Merrill''': Well, we don't get into many details but we're pretty sure it's the humans' fault.

** Though there is also Philemon, The Crawling Chaos' rival, who incarnates humans' positive, constructive aspects, and who may embody this trope even better than Nyarlathotep, in his own way - you kinda expect the personified essence of humanity's evil to be a total asshole, but you don't expect his opposite to be as colossal a dick as Phil.
