* In ''Film/TheHandmaiden'', Kouzuki is Korean, but idolizes English and Japanese people and culture. He despises Korea and being Korean, earned money and power by accommodating himself to the Japanese when they occupied Korea and now denounces his nationality, aiming for full naturalization as Japanese.

He despises Korea and being Korean, earned money and power by accommodating himself to the Japanese when they occupied Korea and now denounces his nationality, aiming for full naturalization as Japanese. This serves to establish him as particularly vile to Korean audiences, even before the extent of his depravity is revealed; the equivalent for a Western audience would be something like a French Jew trying to become a German Nazi aristocrat during the occupation of Paris.

* In ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'', the goddess and demon races reserve their most lasting and emotionally painful punishments for traitors to their own kind. Although they had been at war since forever, the leaders of both sides immediately agreed that [[spoiler:Meliodas and Liz's]] coupling could not be tolerated and combined powers to make them ''cut that shit out''.

* In ''Film/KongSkullIsland'', Lt. Colonel Packard has an antagonistic relationship with anti-war photojournalist Mason Weaver because he blames people in the media like her for the negative portrayal of the soldiers in Vietnam through their coverage, and causing America to pull out of the war. Packard never explicitly accuses Weaver of being a traitor to their country but his attitude toward her heavily implies this.



** 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"). Wizards who are from pureblood backgrounds, but don't hate Muggles and Muggle-born wizards, they refer to as "Blood Traitors."
** In this case, the trope is actually eating itself; Arthur Weasley and Sirius Black both point out that thanks to blood purism, pretty much all pureblooded wizards are related to a greater or lesser degree and therefore any attempt to maintain blood purity is doomed to eventually if not immediately die out thanks to homozygosity. Also a matter of hypocrisy; the Death Eaters usually have some Muggle relations, out of necessity if nothing else. These inconvenient branches of the family tree are often stricken from the record. Voldemort himself has a Muggle father, though Death Eaters who know this ignore it because they revere him so damn much/don't want to be Avada Kedavra'd.

** And Molly Weasley has a second cousin who's [[MuggleBornOfMages an accountant]], but the family "never talk about him." Mentioned early in the [[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone first book]], this was originally going to followed up with a long plot arc where the accountant had a daughter who was a witch, but didn't end up in the books so its unclear exactly why they never talk about him.
** In ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Order of the Phoenix]]'' is is revealed that the centaur herd living in the Forbidden Forest view any of their fellows deigning to work for wizards, and especially teach them how to read the stars, is considered treachery to be punished by a painful execution by being kicked to death.
