** Mogu are bug-like humanoids who really don't like the other races of Aseroth, calling them "filth" most of the time; they use the slur when dealing with the player even when your Reputation with them is Friendly. (When you reach Honored, they show a little more courtesy.)

*** And humans are "kine", i.e. cattle.

*** And humans are "kine", i.e. cattle. Or "bloodbags", if the vampire is younger and less than polite.


Added DiffLines:

** "Fledgling" isn't ''quite'' harsh enough to be considered a slur, but it is a derogatory way of referring to a very young vampire, implying inexperience, cluelessness and a need for constant hand-holding and having the simplest things explained. The polite terms are "childe" (which has overtones of applying authority) or "neonate".
** "Heads" are vampires who are addicted to drugs of some kind, and seek out users of said drugs to get a fix from drinking their blood. The practice is looked down on for needlessly risking infection (vampires can't catch hepatitis or HIV, but they can ''spread'' them just fine) and is seen as clinging to trappings of humanity. The term is combined with a term for the drug (i.e. "boozehead", "smackhead", "speedhead", "methhead"...).

Added DiffLines:

* Speaking of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', the term "mud pony" is very common in fan-fiction and is even occasionally used among fans themselves for earth ponies as their species trait of being in tune with nature and ([[WordOfGod allegedly]]) being physically stronger, [[BoringButPractical while invaluable in-universe]], simply isn't [[RuleOfCool nearly as flashy or impressive]] as flight, magic, all of the above ([[MasterOfAll alicorns]]), or flight, magic, and VoluntaryShapeshifting (changelings).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'', people from Lucis will derogatorily refer to those from the Empire of Nifleheim as 'Niffs'. Even Gladiolus uses it.

* In ''Legend of the Crimson Avatar'', a Naruto AU/Avatar: The Last Airbender crossover, firebenders with extremely weak, low temperature fire are called "Rose Flames" due to the blood red color. Rose Flames struggle to produce even orange fire in combat and no Rose Flame has ever attained certification as a Master, relegating anyone unfortunate enough to be one to a life of ridicule. The AU Naruto happens to be a Rose Flame, and the first time he tries to look cool lighting his fist on fire, everybody laughs at him.
