* FantasticRacism/{{Other}}




[[folder:Roleplay]]
* Pretty much the basis of Roleplay/ThisIsWar, where the supernaturals were forced out of their home countries by the government doing this, only to find similar from the people in Britain.
* Roleplay/ThereIsNoGATEWeDidNotFightThere
** Most humans of the Empire are heavily prejudiced against the many demihuman species scattered around the setting. Likewise, many demihumans bear grudges against humans (and other races) for a number of reasons.
*** Even in Rhavenfell, where racism is much less present due to the many contributions of various races on the frontier over the years, most people still have certain prejudices against demihumans. However, the Rhavenfells' efforts towards integration have been slowly chipping away at the racial tension.

If the point of the story is to show the evils of racism, this trope can lead to a BrokenAesop if there are in fact [[FantasticAesop good in-universe reasons to discriminate]] against a certain type of creature (say, because they need to [[HorrorHunger eat other sentient beings]] in order to survive, or they genuinely are AlwaysChaoticEvil apart from the odd [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch angsty heroic one]]).

* HaveYouTriedNotBeingAMonster: A different kind of metaphor, somewhat more like Fantastic Homophobia.


Added DiffLines:

* ZombieAdvocate: Civil rights activists working for the equality of unusual minorities; sort of an inversion of Fantastic Racism.

Note that this can also cover other types of prejudice: anti-homosexual sentiment, religious differences, and so on. [[note]]In which case, "Fantastic Discrimination" or "Fantastic Prejudice" would be a more apt term.[[/note]]

Examples that are depicted often enough to have their own subtrope are:

* ElvesVsDwarves
* FurAgainstFang: Werewolves (or other animal shifters) versus vampires
* JustAMachine: Humans versus artificial intelligences
* MugglePower: {{Muggles}} hating people with superpowers or magic
* RobotsEnslavingRobots: Robots versus other types of robots--this one is most likely to be entirely satirical
* SuperSupremacist: Supers despising non-supers.
* UnequalRites: Witches versus wizards, although this is often depicted more as Fantastic Sexism
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Humans versus all other sentient beings
