Sera, a City Elf dislikes the Dalish for being "too elfy" (aka, proud, arrogant, and exclusive) whereas hedge (which makes sense considering none of them ever made her feel like she belonged). However, in Trespasser, she's the only companion to ask a dalish inquisitor if they're okay with the fact that [[spoiler: everything they believed in turned out to be false]]. Hedge mage Solas however shows a mild disdain towards not only both the Dalish ''and'' and the City Elves for desperately clinging to a past that they don't understand. Elves, but also towards dwarves and qunari. Later subverted in the case of Solas, when [[spoiler: it's revealed that he was once a rebel leader in the ancient elven empire, and thus has every reason to hold disdain for modern elves who worship only hates the Evanuris, who almost destroyed dalish because the world back in the day, as gods -- not to mention that their religion portrays ''him'' as the villain]].hey believe in is false and they don't know better. As for his dislike for city elves, qunari and dwarves, we'll never know why]].

** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' has Vivienne, a mage companion, as one is pro-circle (most likely due to her upbringing). She tells a mage inquisitor that a good friend of the most anti-mage people in the game. Even more so than ''Templar'' characters. Treating hers was killed by rebels, which gives her every reason to be hostile towards the rebel mages kindly gains her disapproval. She also displays a serious LackOfEmpathy toward mages that did not have the easy time in the Circle that she did.

She tells a mage inquisitor that a good friend of hers was killed by rebels, which gives her every reason to be hostile towards the rebel mages, which doesn't change the fact that she demonstrates a severe LackOfEmpathy toward mages who lack the advantages that she had or that she judges all mages other than her own loyalist faction by the worst examples of the rebels [[DoubleStandard while at the same time arguing that it's wrong to judge the Templars by the worst of their members]].

* Complaining about Germans in general and their failure to see through some obvious political ploys when it comes to elections in particular is a staple of German political comedy with too many examples to conveniently list here.
