* In ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', Darth Malgus' New Empire embraces aliens rejected by the Republic because their [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is repulsive to the good guys and looked down on by the xenophobic Empire.

** Throughout the series, this is true of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]]. While they technically operate under their own BlueAndOrangeMorality while being AboveGoodAndEvil, most are quite malevolent in their dealings with mortals and are thus, considered evil. While there are a few exceptions where a particular Daedric Prince seems to ''favor'' a specific race (Malacath toward the [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] or Azura toward the [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer]], for example) they all accept worship from any mortal race willing to give it to them.

While often done to avoid portraying certain races as evil, it can go into the other direction if the heroes are all one ethnicity and every other race are villains, or perhaps suggesting that race-mixing is inherently bad while segregation is good. Compare WhiteGangBangers and StraightEdgeEvil. Contrast PoliticallyIncorrectVillain and for the heroic side, NobleBigot. Note however that they are not mutually exclusive; a villain can be intolerant towards some groups but progressive towards others. See also AlikeAndAntitheticalAdversaries and AntiHumanAlliance. May go hand in hand with BetterLivingThroughEvil. May overlap with CarnivalOfKillers. See FiveTokenBand for the good-aligned version.

* Mad King Ashnard of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'' was said to hire any powerful men without regard for their backgrounds or motives, in accordance with his SocialDarwinist beliefs. He's an odd example because he does seem to personally be racist (he uses the subhuman slur at various points in the game) but has no qualms about working with Laguz such as Ena and [[spoiler: Nasir]] as well as the [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Feral Ones]] out of appreciation for their strength. He also has at least one [[HalfHumanHybrid Branded]], [[spoiler: Petrine]], under his command, and shows no ill will toward her for it, though it's unclear if he knows what she is or not. This extends to other humans as well, as Sothe mentions he has no problem with recruiting lower class citizens into his army as long as they're capable (something that was noted to be uncommon for the setting) and employs the BlackKnight despite having no clue as to his identity or motives based solely on the fact that the man can get results.

* Krombopulous Michael from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' is an AffablyEvil assassin, who advertises himself as having no code of ethics, and will kill anyone his client asks without any hesitation, simply because he just loves his job.
--> "Nice to meet you Morty! Listen, if you ever need anybody murdered, ''please'' give me a call, I'm very discrete, I have no code of ethics, I will kill anyone, anywhere. Children, animals, old people, doesn't matter. I just love killing."

* The nationalist, right-wing Sons of the Serpent militia in Marvel comics fights to restore a white America, so they are obviously politically incorrect villains, but they allow women in their organization on what appears to be equal terms.

* The movie version of ''SuicideSquad'' has a cast so diverse [[UpToEleven it almost looks like a parody of the concept]]. There are three women (one of them Japanese), two Blacks, a Chicano, an (American) Indian...and the only white male supervillain on the entire team isn't even American [[note]] Australian, to be precise [[/note]]! Add to this the gang's [[TheJoker unofficial ninth member]], a green-haired MonsterClown whose true background has always been unknown and who is sometimes rumored to not even be human, and we have what may be the least Eurocentric and male comic-book movie lineup in history!

* ''Film/{{Descendants}}'': Auradon, the land of heroes, tends to put girls into PrincessClassic roles while the Isle of the Lost, the land of villains, has complete gender equality. Jay notes in the sequel that the one thing better on the Isle is that girls aren't barred from doing anything.
