I felt this was important to add, since you saw it everywhere, with a complete disregard that the Maya aren't a "mysterious, lost civilization". they're STILL HERE.
'''Cultures That No Longer Exist'''

'''Cultures That No Longer Exist''' Exist'''[[note]]Unfortunately, this can also apply to cultures people ''think'' no longer exist, but actually still do. For example, [[MayanDoomsday The Maya people]], who were facepalming throughout that entire ordeal[[/note]]

** Originated in Al Capp's ''LilAbner'' newspaper cartoon during the Cold War as "Lower Slobbovia", a parody of Siberia, as being worse than the hillbilly town of Dogpatch.

* While AccentuateTheNegative is his general style, [[http://joshreads.com/ Josh Fruhlinger]] (a.k.a. Blog/TheComicsCurmudgeon) seems to reserve a special level of contempt and disdain for the newspaper comic ''{{Pluggers}}'', which typically chronicles the exploits of older, more rural individuals. Each one is rephrased as a way to say that such individuals are, among other things, alcoholics, abusers, morons, or occasionally racists. ** And don't forget all the meth labs and cross burnings in [[SnuffySmith Hootin Holler]]! ** As well as the denizens of [[MarkTrail Lost Forest]] -- which is rather bizarre, since these days, [[GreenAesop over-the-top environmentalism]] is more generally associated with elitist, middle-to-upper-class liberals.

* And turned on its head in ''PinkyAndTheBrain'' episode 'Funny, You Don't Look Rhennish'. The reason why the LawyerFriendlyCameo Rhennish are rural poor? [[spoiler:They're ''not'' living on a pile of valuable minerals.]]

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' {{DLC}} [[DeepSouth 'Point Lookout']], one branch of enemies are... Well, [[RefugeInAudacity grossly exaggerated]] hillbilly stereotypes. They live in run-down wooden shacks. They dress in torn workers' jeans. They are hideously deformed by inbreeding. Their mental capacity has devolved to the point where they can only speak short sentences (in thick dialects, of course) and [[DumbMuscle attack everything that moves]], wielding double-barrel shotguns, [[AxCrazy axes]] and {{shovel|Strike}}. They brew moonshine. [[IAmAHumanitarian They eat people.]] Also, they are registered in the games programming as creatures rather than NPC's

* ''Film/HowToTrainYourDragon'' takes everything about dragons and deconstructs it in front of you. And Hiccup himself deconstructs this for everyone in the film not named Hiccup.

* For the most part, the "old money" crowd is treated as a bunch of inhumane, amoral [[{{Jerkass}} Jerkasses]] who don't give a fig for the rest of humanity in the ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse''. One of the regular themes was a heroic scientist creating some amazing breakthrough that made him "new money" wealthy, and then having to deal with the "old money" types sneering at them.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan: Both the anime and manga go to exceptional lengths to paint absolutely everyone with any semblance of income as selfish, vile or sadistic. The series gets more and more aggressive in this portrayal, with a chief example being that [[spoiler:the heroes purposely allow and even encourage the deaths of thousands of the inner-wall rich folk by releasing a dangerous titan among the populous in the hopes that they will be taken more seriously. This is presented as a heroic act to the reader/watcher.]] And it only gets worse.
