* The Banishers of ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' really, ''really'' hate mages, despite the fact that the two groups go on the same trip to the Supernal Realms and come back with knowledge of magic. The difference is that while regular Mages view the experience as akin to religious awakening, Banishers view their experience as more akin to MindRape and feel an instinctive revulsion every time they use magic.
* In ''Van Richten's Guide to Witches'' (an accessory for the ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' campaign), the good doctor claims that he wrote the book with the help of a greenhag who despised other members of her species and was all to willing to aid him in publishing a book that could be used against them. (Why? According to Van Richten, she refused to say.)
* DependingOnTheWriter, the ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms''' Drizzt Do'Urden is often a heroic example -- he hates his own species as much as pretty much every non-drow does. (Of course, this has become the whole problem with Drizzt; in order to make him believable, you have to assume that Drow are AlwaysChaoticEvil except for him, which borders on FantasticRacism in more modern products.)

** [[spoiler: Acnologia, the Black Dragon of the Apocalypse, considers humans to be beneath worthy of talking to. He was originally the Black Dragon Slayer, who was turned into a dragon by Zeref. His dialogue with Igneel reveals that he doesn't have a much higher opinion of Dragons either. He'll at least speak to them, but he still finds their existence distasteful. Then it turns out he's still able to return to his human form whenever he feels like it. He's just a jerk who considers everyone beneath him.]]

The Boomerang Bigot is a character who thinks that all members of Group X are an inferior race/species... [[{{Hypocrite}} even while being a member of Group X]] themselves. Despite the obvious contradiction, the Boomerang Bigot doesn't see anything wrong with their view, and will continue to proudly persecute Group X.

Differs from YouAreWhatYouHate in that there is no ignorance, secrecy, or self-doubt involved. The Boomerang Bigot ''knows'' they're a member of the targeted group -- and others know it, too -- but remains unabashed about holding their views, possibly in an odd form of HonorBeforeReason. However, it is possible for the two tropes to overlap. A bigot's membership in the hated group might be secret to most people but known to a few. If he continues to sincerely express hatred towards the hated group, even when in a situation where his secret will not be exposed, then he might show shades of both Boomerang Bigot and YouAreWhatYouHate.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': [[spoiler: The Eldians living in the ghettos of Marley have been indoctrinated to consider the Eldians living within the Walls "children of the devil". While some merely parrot the official propaganda out of fear, others '''truly''' despise their own people and believe the people of the Walled nation are demons that deserve to be exterminated via a FinalSolution. The members of Marley's Warrior program were all raised with this ideology, in order to have them attempt to wipe out all life within the Walls]].
