* Chimpanzees not only kill rivals in fights for dominance, they even make organized raids into the territory of other clan to gain control of rich food sources. Enemy chimps who didn't escape the battle alive then [[CannibalTribe usually get eaten]].

* Chimpanzees not only kill rivals in fights for dominance, they even make organized raids into the territory of other clan to gain control of rich food sources. Enemy chimps who didn't escape the battle alive then [[CannibalTribe usually get eaten]]. The gorillas by comparison typically set aside their differences without resorting to violence, though leading gorillas of different clans may sometimes choose to fight each other to the death.

*** In fact, when one Ultramarine ran a combat simulation featuring other Astartes as opponents (because he had already run all other possible simulations), he was detained and scheduled to be disciplined. Then the Word Bearers attacked and they put him in charge of the initial defense.

* It isn't a race thing, but members of the Ranger class in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' have a variation. The Favored Enemy ability in some Editions allows them bonuses while fighting certain races that the player is free to choose. Only an evil Rangers may choose his own race for this ability in some of those editions. (It's okay for good-aligned ones to slay villains of their own race, just not select them for this ability.)

This restriction is regardless of alignment, too, so a TokenHeroicOrc Ranger couldn't select his AlwaysChaoticEvil race as a favored enemy, but a ChaoticEvil Orc Ranger could.

* In the extended ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal, the Librarian embodies this theme. He conceded the City Zoo may keep gorillas and chimpanzees and accepts that to them, this is like a lifetime pass to a five-star hotel with their every need attended to. Indeed, he is consultant to the Zoo and advocates for Ape Rights. However, woe betide the Zoo director if she even ''thinks'' of exhibiting captured orang-utans. [[note]]She in her turn is in complete agreement with the Librarian. Assassins are not stupid.[[/note]]. The Librarian also regularly visits the City's import-export business in exotic animals just to make sure they aren't dealing in orangs on the sly. He is also known to drop in on All Johnson's Howondalandian Food Emporium (''Almost every taste from the continent!'') to ensure a very strict ''Absolutely no bushmeat! The Librarian comes and checks!" provision is being rigidly adhered to. it is not known what happens to Howondalandians who try to illegally meet a market for bushmeat. But they tend not to last very long.

**** A similar thing in done in Film/AlienvsPredator, where aliens tear apart their kin so the acidic blood dissolves the chains holding the Queen.

* In ''Series/{{Defiance}}'', the Omec refuse to eat other Omec except in [[CannibalismSuperpower special ceremonies with deceased relatives]]. Despite this, the Omec will quite happily eat other Votan races, which is why when the Votan star went nova, the other Votans sabotaged the Omec [[TheArk ark]] and left them to die.

** By ''Literature/SpeakerOfTheDead'', humanity has recognized a major distinction between aliens who are weird but possible to communicate with ("raman") versus aliens who are [[InscrutableAliens completely incomprehensible]] and OK to kill (varalese.)

* As the Iconians are fleshed out in ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'', it comes out that they have an aversion to breaking their Whole by attacking one another. Since there are only twelve Iconians left at this point, and they're all united behind the 'conquer the galaxy' plan, this really doesn't make much of a difference... until ''Midnight'', the final episode of the Iconian War, when it turns out the lost Other the Iconians regard as part of their Whole is in fact none other than [[spoiler: the player character, thanks to a predestination paradox involving time-travel to Iconia's last day.]].

* Zig-zagged in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. In the Iron Islands, it's forbidden for one Ironborn to shed the blood of another, but drowning them or disposing of them in a similarly bloodless manner is perfectly okay.
