** The episode ''Butt Out'' cast the anti-smoking movement as being comprised of Gollum-like sub-humans led by Rob Reiner who plan to kill Cartman to further their campaign against Big Tobacco, whereas the local tobacco company itself is treated quite fairly and realistically, acknowledging the health risks of smoking but also that it's one's own choice to do so and no one forces them. With all that said, apparently the point of the episode wasn't to be pro-smoking--it's because Parker and Stone just think Rob Reiner is an ass. The demonization is played for laughs in any case.

* Hitler gets a cameo in the ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' movie. He never speaks [[spoiler:well, almost]], but the camera constantly pans to his eyes, which have a mad, manic glare that gives the impression that he's constantly about to snap and kill everybody around him. There is a slight chance of double standard here, given what the primary ''Fullmetal Alchemist'' universe is like.
** While it's very doubtful he could ever try to kill anyone in a hand-to-hand way in RealLife, it's not like he never did shriek or roll on the floor and ''bite a carpet''; he was dosed up on all kinds of stimulants and psychoactive "vitamin" regiments by his CrazyNaziScientist doctors...
** Those happened in his later days, however, when his sanity was seriously slipping. His appearance in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' is before he gained power, when he was just a leader of a small extremist party, and was a lot more charismatic and still had at least a good semblance of sanity despite of his hard-lined politics.
** Hitler really did act like that when making speeches, at least on some occasions. Yes, he was charismatic, but his message was one of furious anger at the state Germany had fallen into; manic energy and passion were part of his performance. He didn't look like he was about to kill everyone around him, he looked like he was on the verge of storming out and leading his "army" of followers to overthrow the "corrupt" Weimar democracy and restore Germany's honour. Its nothing to do with his sanity slippage later on in the war (and make no mistake- he was '''not''' a sane man even in these early days) and everything to do with the nature of the speeches he made.

* An InUniverse example occurs in ''Film/IShotJesseJames''. After he kills UsefulNotes/JesseJames, Robert Ford is treated and portrayed as a DirtyCoward that callously murdered Jesse, and Ford has difficulty moving on with his life because of this stigma. This actually was TruthInTelevision; Jesse James became [[JustLikeRobinHood heavily romanticized]] as an outlaw, while Ford was treated as a traitorous snake.

* The Germans in the UsefulNotes/WorldWarI serial ComicBook/GoldenEyesAndHerHeroBill are painted as savage, violent, sneaky, and vehemently misogynistic to boot - the only named German character using his position in the army to capture [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty and attempt to assault]] the American heroine. He believes that women are to be treated as "servants and slaves and dolls!" and when she fights back, he hauls her to the top of the trenches with the intent to shoot her in front of the onrushing American soldiers. Even [[CanineCompanion the dog]] who gets to narrate a chapter describes the German forces as "that army who ravished the children—the women—the fruit trees—of God!"

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' was subjected to this in the 80's and early 90's from Christian groups (most notably [[ComicBook/ChickTracts Jack Chick]] and Patricia Pulling, the founder of [[FunWithAcronyms Bothered About Dungeons & Dragons]]) believing the game encouraged witchcraft, satanism, suicide, and all sorts of other horrible things. It got to the point where TSR (the game's publisher at the time) removed demons, devils, and other monsters from the line (mostly by renaming them into tanar'ri and baatezu), stopped to call shamans "wicca" and funding studies to counter the claims.
