* Subverted in the ''MyFavoriteMartian'' movie, where Martin starts complaining about his spaceship's "electron accelerator" getting fried, and then tells Tim "I'd tell you what it is, but you think E = mc[[superscript:2]]". [[spoiler:It then turns out that an "electron accelerator" is just flowery {{Technobabble}} for an alternator taken from Tim's sedan.]]

** CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys is this trope inverted and directed towards the French. Never mind all their military accomplishments up to that point, including ''[[TheDreaded Napoleon.]]'' The fact that Germany absolutely crushed them in a surprise attack during WWII essentially cemented their poor military reputation.
** The French didn't do so well in WWI or 1870 either. Basically they've been carrying the military failure ball since Napoleon - who let us not forget was ''Italian''.

* Strangely for all his racist arrogance and claims of superiority, UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler actually ''inverted'' this on the Germans when drawing comparisons with the Italians. He was annoyed that his lackey Himmler tried to dig up Germanic tribal artifacts from archaeological sites, and mocked him by stating that the Romans were already highly civilized when the Germans were still living in huts. Also a subversion of the inversion because he got around the problem by arguing that the ancient Romans were actually "Aryans" carrying on the "Nordic-Greek culture".

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': One of the few things that make the generally benevolent Hoshido [[ALighterShadeOfGrey grey]] is their tendency to characterize all citizens of Nohr as wicked monsters, when the truth is that it is really just [[TheEmperor Garon]] and [[TheDragon his advisor]] [[Necromancer Iago]]. This has the result of making the Hoshido characters look a tad racist during the Conquest route, as they insist that the player character must have been brainwashed as they continue to plead for peace between Nohr and Hoshido.
