* [[NebulousEvilOrganization Black Claw]] in ''Series/Grimm'' claim that they're Wessen traditions are being oppressed by humans, even though said traditions generally consist of brutally killing (and sometimes [[ImAHumanitarian eating]]) humans, not to mention other, weaker, Wessen.

* [[NebulousEvilOrganization Black Claw]] in ''Series/Grimm'' ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' is a group of Wessen united behind their claim that they're what they consider to be important Wessen traditions are being oppressed by humans, even though said traditions generally consist of brutally dominating, killing (and sometimes [[ImAHumanitarian eating]]) humans, not to mention humans -- and also [[MonstrousCannibalism other, weaker, Wessen.Wessen]].



* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'': [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Pre Vizsla and the Death Watch]] justify their murderous, warmongering ways by claiming that to do otherwise would be to dishonor their Mandalorian heritage.

Uniquely deconstructed in that, initially, they're a fringe group, as most of their own society had ''actively ended'' those traditions due to deciding they no longer suited the galaxy they lived in. It takes a brilliant and long-running scheme involving political manipulation and strategically applied terrorism to discredit their peoples' ActualPacifist ruler to the point the other Mandalorians are willing to take them back.

* This trope, in a somewhat roundabout way, motivates the BigBad of ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity''. [[spoiler:The BigBad's culture, the Engwithans, created the FantasyPantheon of gods that the people of the world worship and the BigBad spearheaded the missionary efforts to bring these gods -- and thus Engwithan cultural mores that went into these gods -- to the rest of the world. Several hundred years later the BigBad -- who is immortal -- has caused innumerable atrocities to keep the peoples' faith in the Engwithan gods alive.]] While the BigBad never explicitly says the word 'culture', in light of this information and his opinion on [[spoiler:the 'native' gods his missionaries replaced]] it is hard not to see his ultimate motivation as this.

* In ''[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-31734/Starfox+Divided+and+Entwined.htm Divided and Entwined]'', the pureblood wizards (led by the Death Eaters) manage to manipulate the Wizangamot into passing a series of harsh new laws to "put the Mudbloods in their place". The result is a society that closely resembles what Germany right before the Wannsee Conference must have looked like through Jewish eyes. The purebloods are shocked, horrified, and '''''absolutely outraged''''' when the Muggleborn form a [[LaResistance resistance movement]] to strike back at their oppressors. One pureblood witch honestly cannot comprehend why the "Mudbloods" would even want to strike back, since "reminding the Mudbloods that they are barely better than the beasts they were born to is a traditional part of wizarding society."

* In ''Literature/TheDarkElfTrilogy'' and its subsequent sequels, this seems to be the case with the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil drow lifestyle]]. Hideous, horrific, bloody acts such as genocide and kin-slaying and worse are justified by many dark elves as it was simply "their way" of doing things, of course most drow are also very ForTheEvulz. The only real rule seems to be not to get caught breaking any others. Drizzt even muses briefly in one chapter on the fact that the culture overrides common sense in this respect, and how it's being so self-destructive to his people.

* In ''[[VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening The Keening Blade]]'', the Architect's explanation of the need for [[FateWorseThanDeath Broodmothers]] is more of an AppealToInherentNature, but Loghain refers to this trope when skewering his offer.
