** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', Sera is practically built on this trope. She's an elf, but does not consider that to have any impact on who she is as a person, and is very hostile to "[[StopBeingStereotypical elfy elves]]," especially ones who berate her for being "the wrong sort of elf." In a meta sense, it's probably also [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything no coincidence]] that she's homosexual [[note]]which is no big deal to anyone within the game, but does make her stand out a bit as a video game character[[/note]] and considers "[[UsefulNotes/PrideParade pride]]" to be her least favourite [[{{Pride}} sin]]. A lot of players sensitive to either racial or GLBT issues absolutely ''[[TheScrappy despise]]'' Sera as a result.

** In another episode, Phil himself thinks that he is this to his old neigborhood after revisiting the small apartment he and his family once lived in back when he was a fiery idealistic young lawyer working for peanuts while offering legal aid. He wonders if becoming a judge who lives in a mansion in Bel-Air made him lose that fire.

** The [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Death-Eaters]] consider wizardry to be in the blood. They also feel that [[NoTrueScotsman all "real" wizards are obliged to be "loyal" to "their own kind,"]] and thus despise Muggles, as well as wizards with direct Muggle ancestry (who are derisively termed "mudbloods"). Wizards who are from pureblood backgrounds, but don't hate Muggles and Muggle-born wizards, they refer to as "Blood Traitors."

** The [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Death-Eaters]] consider wizardry to be in the blood. [[note]]Blood clearly isn't the whole story considering that Muggles can have children with magic and wizards and witches can, more rarely, have children with no magic.[[/note]] They also feel that [[NoTrueScotsman all "real" wizards are obliged to be "loyal" to "their own kind,"]] and thus despise Muggles, as well as wizards with direct Muggle ancestry (who are derisively termed "mudbloods").

** In an interesting look at things, even wizards who aren't Death Eaters have negative opinions on wizards who are a little too interested with Muggle affairs. Arthur Weasley is implied to be passed up for promotions (and subsequently means by which to provide better for his family) because of his unnerving enthusiasm for anything Muggle-related, which even the Minister Of Magic sees as disgraceful. Dumbledore also gets some grief for reading Muggle newspapers.

* ''{{Film/Thunderheart}}'': The Lakota dislike Ray as a man with a quarter Lakota ancestry who's an FBI agent, unsurprisingly, mocking him as the "Washington Redskin". Ray for his part returns the antipathy, disliking them at first as well and disclaiming that heritage.

** The Minbari have a civil war, with the Warrior Caste and the Religious Caste each accusing the other of being category traitors to the Minbari, and anyone who tried to de-escalate the civil war of being a category traitor to their caste. [[spoiler:Delenn takes over the religious caste, wins, but then hands power over to the [[HouseHufflepuff Worker Caste]], the ones who actually represent the base of the Minbari people and keep getting caught up in the middle when the Religious and Warrior castes quarrel with each other.]]
