* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': Jonathan Kent is firmly convinced that ''all'' Kryptonians are evil by nature. When Martha points out that [[InterspeciesAdoption their son]] is a Kryptonian himself, Jonathan simply replies that Clark is the exception because he was {{raised by humans}}.

* Growing up as an orphan, Fuka from ''Anime/VividStrike'' has developed a strong distaste for rich people. While this generally applies to anyone who looks down on her because of her poor background, she specifically dislikes rich people for being the ones to change [[ChildhoodFriend Rinne's]] personality after they adopted her. She slowly starts to get better through interacting with Team Nakajima, but she was still hostile at first after realizing they went to a "rich girls' school."
--> '''Fuka''': I don't think you rich girls understand how us commoners struggle to live each day.

Bob knows that Alice is stupid: She's a woman, and women are stupid - never mind that Alice has a [=PhD=] and an IQ of 150, she's still a woman... and women are stupid, thus Alice is stupid. If Bob finally accepts that Alice is indeed smart, he might resort to [[NoTrueScotsman claiming that she is not "really" a woman]]. Bonus points if Bob uses Alice [[LogicBomb not being stupid as an example of the principle that women are stupid]] - either because [[NoTrueScotsman she's too smart to be a real woman,]] or as [[InsaneTrollLogic "the exception that verifies the rule".]] Also bonus points if "Alice" isn't even a woman, and Bob [[StrawAffiliation simply assumed a neutral Internet nickname to be female because he thinks the person is stupid]]. Alternatively, Alice actually does something stupid one single time - and Bob draws the conclusion that she is (and all other women are) ''always'' stupid.

** In general mages are looked down upon [[FantasticRacism even more than in the rest of Thedas]], being treated essentially as animals that need to be leashed like mad dogs. If a Mage Hawke in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' manages to win their respect then clearly they're not a mage, they're just a perfectly ordinary person who happens to have innate magical powers.

** If a female Warden recruits Sten in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', a conversation will eventually ensue where he states that he doesn't believe you're a woman, because Qunari women cannot be warriors. Despite the deep cultural divide, you can eventually make him respect the Warden as a warrior. In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' The Iron Bull states that even though he's lived among non-Qunari long enough that the culture shock is less severe than Sten's he still mentally categorizes female fighters like Cassandra as men in his mind. He also states that Qunari women ''can'' in fact be warriors if the show particular talent in that area -- they just [[LoopholeAbuse get treated like men]] for all intents and purposes.

This also means that they're very accepting of transgender people, because as they see it if someone's living life as a particular gender then they are that gender, biology be damned.
