Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/DragonsOfRequiem'', the term "weredragon" is considered offensive to the Vir Requis--even though [[OurDragonsAreDifferent they technically are half-man, half-dragon]]. Everyone who uses the phase does so in a derogatory way, as if to depict them as monsters.

** A common slur for Fereldans by other nations is "dog lords", a jab at the fact that [[HeroesLoveDogs Fereldans love their mabari hounds]]. Orlesian nobles will also use "turnip" as a slur against Fereldans.

** A common slur for Fereldans by other nations is "dog lords", a jab at the fact that [[HeroesLoveDogs Fereldans love their mabari hounds]]. In fact the Fereldans are often more upset about the implied insult to their dogs than anything. Orlesian nobles will also use "turnip" as a slur against Fereldans.

** "Muggle" meaning non-magical humans. None of the wizard characters seem to think it's offensive, but they also make damn sure they don't use it in mixed company.

It especially stands out compared to the more neutral American equivalent, "Maj" for wizards and "no-Maj" for non-wizards.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', most of Peridot's taunts toward the Crystal Gems seem to revolve around comparing them to rocks or dirt. "Clod" is her insult of choice, with some variations like "Crystal clods", along with calling them "dirtbombs" once, and she's referred to Steven as a "pebble" (seemingly an analogue to "brat") at least once. [[spoiler:When Peridot calls [[BigBad Yellow Diamond]] a clod to her face, Yellow Diamond's face contorts with rage in a hilarious way.]]

** Peridot also had a deep distaste for [[FusionDance fusions]], which made Garnet a prime target for insults. She's been referred to as "the (perma)fusion" and "filthy war machine", the latter of which really pissed her off. Peridot learned fast enough to not insult Garnet when she's nearby, but that doesn't mean she stops when she's not around.
--->'''Peridot:''' I could call [Garnet] lots of things. I could call her ''(snrk)'' two things! ''Two'' clods! ''(laughs)'' Walking around like she's... ''ONE'' clod! ''(laughs harder)''
