* In the third season of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', Judai is challenged by the Duel Spirit Birdman (formerly called "Harpies' Brother" and currently "Sky Scout" in the States) who looks down on low-Leveled monsters, considering them a lower class worthy of nothing but scorn; problem is, he himself is only Level 4, which he, in fact, admits after being defeated in ritual battle. (Clearly, his attitude was his way of compensating.)

* When Glory from ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' discovers that her ActualPacifist [=RainWing=] tribe acts just like what other dragons claim they do, she starts hating them. Her friends tell her that the [=RainWing=]s' pacifism can be a good thing, and denying her "sun time" was doing her more harm than good.

* During his first heel run, Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio, a high-class but still bronze-skinned Latino of dual Mexican/American citizenship, would garner lots of CheapHeat by antagonizing ''everyone'' in his path - even fellow Latinos. He mocked Wrestling/{{Rey Mysterio| Jr}} for being a "Chihuahua" and the product of "the Tijuana ghettoes" (where he ''[[ContinuityNod did]]'' gain wrestling fame, but Rey grew up in San Diego). And on one particularly infamous occasion, he shouted to the audience (perhaps [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex out of a lack of self-confidence]]) that "I have come to this country LEGALLY!"; he then exited the ring and walked toward the crowd, beginning to harass anyone with skin darker than his by yelling "SHOW ME YOUR PAPERS!"

* Voldemort in ''Literature/HarryPotter''. One of the goals of the Death Eaters was the elimination of any wizard who wasn't pure blooded, especially if they were muggleborn, but Voldemort himself was a half-blood. But then, he ''is'' based off [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Adolf Hitler]].
** Snape as well -- in his youth he was highly prejudiced against muggles and muggle-borns [[spoiler: despite being a half-blood himself and in love with a particular muggle-born.]]
** WordOfGod reveals Umbridge to be one as well, but takes it a step further; Umbridge claims to be a descendent of the Selwyn wizarding family and fully pure-blooded when prosecuting Muggle-borns for "stealing magic." In reality, her parents were a member of the Department of Magical Maintenance (read: a janitor) and a Muggle.

Such behavior almost always occurs [[HypocriticalHumor for laughs]]. If not... be afraid.

Has also been known in the mainstream as "Self-Hating", with the ethnic group following after (such as "Self-Hating Black" and "Self-Hating Jew"). A more technical term is "[[InternalizedCategorism internalized bigotry]]". If they're not self-hating and simply criticize the behavior of their group, they might just be insisting that they StopBeingStereotypical.
