** Russians also have their own form of The Soviet Union Wins The War, arguing that since the Nazis suffered 80% of their losses on the Eastern Front (fighting with armies of no less than three million men at all times for a total turnover of 8 million Soviet and 4 Million German soldiers dead, whereas Britain and the USA fielded a couple of million men with losses of less than a million put together) as well as being the only ones present at the Battles of Stalingrad, Kursk, and Berlin (the biggest of the war), the Russians won the war all by themselves - never mind the effect of Anglo-American lend-lease aid (which accounted for as much as 25% of all Soviet war-time production!), etc. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Also, the Soviet Union did not at all collaborate with the Nazis for their own territorial aggrandizement and absolutely did not end up fighting them due to a falling out among thieves, how dare you even suggest that]]. It might not be easily noticeable in the Anglosphere, compared to American and British attitudes, but it can and will pop up [[MisplacedNationalism anywhere World War II is discussed]].

Never mind the effect of Anglo-American lend-lease aid (which accounted for as much as 25% of all Soviet war-time production!), production and staved off a Soviet famine), that in mid-1943 the Luftwaffe mysteriously vanished, that more than a third of the German army was preoccupied with the Anglo-Americans at all times, etc. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Also, the Soviet Union did not at all collaborate with the Nazis for their own territorial aggrandizement and absolutely did not end up fighting them due to a falling out among thieves, how dare you even suggest that]].

** The 1989 Creator/DolphLundgren ''[[Film/ThePunisher1989 Punisher]]'' movie puts a reversal on that. When the female yakuza boss addresses the room full of mafioso, she says "While your ancestors were [[BestialityIsDepraved screwing sheep]] in the Mediterranean, mine were the crime lords of Asia." Which is inaccurate - both the yakuza and the mafia date to the early 17th century.

* The Kingdom of Clouds in "Doraemon: Nobita and the Kingdom of Clouds" prides themselves in having achieved a prosperous civilization without harming the planet while implicitly having a huge technological advantage (e.g by using flying vehicles to rescue animals before they got extinct for centuries). At the time the story takes place (~1992), human pollution is making their kingdom inhabitable, and they have no trouble getting in the high horse and blaming humanity for their thoughtlessness and selfishness. Meanwhile at no point in the film they even consider lending some of their technology to humanity, nor feel guilty for keeping all their advanced technology for themselves while humanity struggled through miserable periods in human story such as the dark and middle ages. Their plan was to flood the world while evacuating everyone beforehand and then putting all those 7 billion people back to Earth without their technology, presumably to starve and die. Doraemon and his friends barely stop them, and they promise at the end of the film to do better and work harder at protecting nature while the cloud people leave for a ''Main/PlantAlien'' planet.

** Sam does lament certain things human culture failed to create that his has long mastered...such as a really good nocturnal burgling song (Sam's culture values skill in scheming and thievery, and are naturally very heavy sleepers).

* Most cats in ''Literature/WarriorCats'' believe that their own Clan can do no wrong, and that the other Clans are all weaklings or heartless bastards. This often works in [=ThunderClan's=] favor, since the majority of the series is from their [=POV=], but the series does occasionally show that the other Clans are NotSoDifferent. For example, the same is done with [=RiverClan=] when they become the protagonists in ''Crookedstar's Promise''.
