--* A variation in ''Series/GameOfThrones''; Theon expresses this feeling about Robb Stark in season 3, revealing how he always felt inferior to Robb and was never able to equal him, never mind surpass him. Though the sentiment is more of a GreenEyedMonster feeling against an individual rather than a bigotry against a whole group, he sums this trope up perfectly;
--> '''Ramsay''': He (Robb Stark) lorded it over you?
--> '''Theon''': He didn't have to. All he had to do was... ''be''.

** However, Snape does imply this when he was calling Harry out for his and Sirius' attitude toward their hardships, bring out a LifeIsUnfair speech, noting that James' not only knew this, but ''ensured it'' (referencing Snape's resentment at James' better life.)

It's likely Snape was referring to how James' better life.)was born into a wealthy and loving family while being an intelligent and popular wizard while Snape grew up with an abusive father, an apathetic mother and just being shunned for being anti-social.

Far more often, this is expressed as a stock complaint of hyperpatriotism or chauvinism or just plain bigotry in general. For example, "foreigners" are taking over one's country (or community, or whatever) and are going to outbreed or even replace the native people - and, worst of all, just might be plotting to [[OurVampiresAreDifferent turn everyone else into]] ''[[OurVampiresAreDifferent them]]'', whether genetically or just culturally.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect'', most people see the Geth as AiIsACrapshoot, because they think that the Geth are classic Robot Overlords. The truth is that the Geth SAW something inherent in Organics that repulsed their creators, and the Quarians who built them couldn't stand a species that kept yapping about it.
** [[spoiler:That something was that Organic life has a way with being submissive sluts, ESPECIALLY at their best. The quarian leaders proceeded to have a civil war to eradicate the Geth, the Geth took revenge for the individual Quarians who they cared about, and then said leaders founded a new miserable scavenger society rather than rebuild on a new planet. We see in MassEffect3 that this ties to the plot, as one of the leaders is indeed a paranoid little GeneralRipper who can actually bring about the fall of his race through ignorance and ruthlessness.]]
** [[spoiler:The leader of the Reapers has continued a horrifying cycle of mass murder, torture, and eternal suffering to the strongest-willed under the pretense of harvesting culture. It's implied that it wants to live forever and put this crazy cycle into effect just to ensure that Organics would never surpass it while also granting it new updates for its technology.]]

* Discussed by ''ZinniaJones'' in the episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlL-edhMILw Re: "Can't Even Go to the Park"]] regarding the blog post [[http://www.acceptingabundance.com/cant-even-go-to-the-park/ "Can't Even Go to the Park"]] which gained international infamy for suggesting that the concepts of "freedom" and "Not outlawing the existence of gay people" are mutually exclusive.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'', the inhabitants of [[spoiler:Barian World are apparently enemies of the inhabitants of the Astral World, and plan nothing less than genocide against them. Their leader, known simply as Barian, seems ObviouslyEvil, but his servants come in varying degrees of evil, from Gilag, who is pretty much DumbMuscle, to Alit (who seems to be a NobleDemon).]]

* '''SFDebris''' has a "Stupid Neelix Moment" for just about every ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode. Just the mere ''appearance'' of the character warrants this award.
