** Zigzagged with the Elves. Only specific factions of Blood Elves (those who followed Kael'Thas) and Night Elves (Highborne) have any claim to being evil. [[GreyandGrayMorality It's all a matter of perspective, otherwise.]] Night Elves are, at the very least, the most aggressive of the three races, while Blood Elves are High Elf survivors who resorted to demonic magics in order to survive.

** Way back in ''Warcraft II'' trolls served as the Evil Counterpart Race for the elves (before the eigh elf/blood elf split and before we knew of the night elves), both races providing the main ranged unit and light naval craft for their respective factions.

** Night elves are not especially fond of high elves, and are downright hostile to blood elves. In addition, gnomes vs. goblins, and humans vs. orcs. The gnomes vs. goblins is more of a rivalry than outright hostility, though.

* Green Martians like the MartianManhunter J'onn J'onnz are wise, peaceful, and obscenely powerful (with one exception: OmnicidalManiac and EvilCripple Malefic). White Martians have all the powers of their green cousins, but are monstrously evil (also with, to date, a single exception). No, the respective exceptions are not in any meaningful way counterparts. However this depends on the incarnation, in some versions the white martians are simply subject to a prejudice.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', fairies have two in the form of anti-fairies
and pixies pixies.
** Anti-fairies, as their names imply, are the blue-skinned polar opposites of fairies in terms of both morality and their respective fairy counterpart's personality, the most notable being the KnowNothingKnowItAll Anti-Cosmo
to fairies.

Poof. Like fairies, they can have godchildren and grant wishes, but they're only assigned to mean people and they only grant wishes with sinister results, and they have a love of spreading bad luck amongst humans, so their favorite holiday is Friday the 13th.
** Pixies are an entire race of incredibly boring {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s that will only grant wishes if they conform to their strict standards and often attempt to take control of Fairy World to subjugate the fun-loving fairies. Because of their reliance on the system, they're frequently undone by loopholes in their ironclad contracts.
* On ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', the ponies are opposed by the insectoid changelings, who are similar in appearance and [[EmotionEater feed on the large amounts of love]] that the former produce. Where the ponies are presently ruled by princesses, the changelings are led by a [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen queen]] that wants control of Equestria, and almost succeeded in obtaining it the first time the race appeared.

* Daxamites are descended from [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Kryptonian]] colonists, and gain the same powers at the same levels when exposed to the light of a yellow sun (though they're vulnerable to lead instead of [[KryptoniteFactor kryptonite]]). Unlike Superman, Supergirl, Power Girl and other Kryptonian heroes, though, Daxamites are rabidly xenophobic, to the point of murdering an alien who accidentally crashed on their planet. When a Korugarian Green Lantern helped liberate them from an alien conqueror, they merely demanded she leave the planet rather than killing her, as a show of gratitude. This really bites them in ass when the Sinestro Corps invaded.

* In ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', because '[[EvilIsSterile the Enemy cannot make, he can only mock]]', some villainous races are literally bad counterfeits of good ones, such as Orcs of Elves and Trolls of Ents. There does not appear to be a set for Dwarves and Men, presumably because the Enemy was able to corrupt some of them directly, though some characters speculate that Saruman's 'goblin-men' Uruk-hai represent a blending of the races of Orcs and Men.

* Subverted in ''Literature/VampireAcademy''. The Moroi are presented as a good race of vampires and the Strigoi as their evil counterparts. Goes along with the Moroi having nature-friendly powers and a pacifistic philosophy, while the Strigoi are predators and are abhorred by nature itself. But the Moroi themselves turn out to be a not AlwaysLawfulGood race. They have their share of cruel individuals and outright villains.

** In the later series, the Cardassians to Humans. Cardassian history matches Earth's pretty well- they were both poverty stricken and war torn but dragged themselves up into an ordered and unified society at the center of a galactic superpower. The parallels are even closer when you consider that TheFederation and especially Earth have a clear socialist philosophy, and the Cardassians are Orwellian space communists.
