* In the StarTrekNovelVerse, "Singleton" is a terrible slur in the Bynar culture, signifying one who is unfit for bonding with another; a rejected person. To the Bynars, who (almost) always operate in pairs, this is the ultimate insult. In the StarfleetCorpsOfEngineers series, the character "Solomon" is on the receiving end of such abuse due to [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch his decision not to take another mate upon the death of his partner]].

* 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" at least once.

*** According to the ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' novels, the term cogboy is actually one of the '''less''' degrading names the imperial guard gives to the techpriests, so it should be no surprise they don't have much positive opinions from normal people surprise they don't have much positive opinions from normal people (Techpriests actually use "cog" as a compliment meaning "someone who reliably performs an essential but unglamorous job" among themselves). Likewise, when one Navigator calls the others in a meeting "blinders," the footnote from Amberly noted that she must have been making a considerable effort to be polite.
