** Betans can be kind of like this, everyone making a fuss about how morally superior they are.

** Betans can be kind of like this, everyone making a fuss about how morally superior they are. Mind you this is a planet whose GNP is based on weapons development and sex tourism.

* The Next in Creator/TerryPratchett and Creator/StephenBaxter's ''Literature/TheLongEarth'' series come across as this. Aside from the usual traits associated with this trope (sexual liberation, preposterously advanced intelligence, almost perfectly utopian society, outward condescension to regular humans), regular humans routinely talk up their superiority and are even implied to be on the path to completely replace humanity in the future.

* In ''ErrantStory'', the elves' belief in their own superiority has led to multiple instances of genocide. Considering the trolls to be flawed and mistaken creations of their gods, they made a pretty good effort at exterminating them but did not succeed. They nearly did the same thing to humans before deciding to instead "uplift" the humans by using them as servants. Then after a few human-elf hybrids went violently insane they decided to kill all half-elves. This backfired as [[HoistByHisOwnPetard the resulting racial and civil war nearly exterminated the elves]] and they spent the next thousand years hiding from the rest of the world in an underground city.

Added DiffLines:

**** Inquisition's DLC Trespasser then completely {{subverts}} this trope by making the Qunari the BigBad of the entire DLC (as well as giving a ''highly'' negative portrayal of the Qun). It's worth noting that the negative implications had been the since Origins, but this is the first time that they are really in the player's face

* In second-ed D&D setting ''TabletopGames/{{Planescape}}'' all planars saw themselves as inherently superior to primes (anyone from the Prime Material Plane, [[TropeBreaker including elves]]). [[ForgottenRealms Toril]], [[TabletopGame/{{Dragonlance}} Krynn]], [[DarkSun Athas]] - it didn't matter where on the Prime you were from or which race you were, until you proved otherwise you were Clueless and had no idea how the planes worked or what the answers to life were.

* Weirdly subverted in the Ryria Revelations. The elves are better than humans in every way (stronger, faster, tougher, more technologically advanced, and better at magic), but they have a single crippling weakness: their incredibly low birthrate. This allowed the humans to beat the elves in an ancient war by simply [[ZergRush Zerg Rushing]] them until the elves arranged a peace treaty to end the (to them) unbearable losses. As one of the main characters put it, "the elves were drowning in a floodtide of humanity."
