** Played for laughs with Kalifa, who considers her boss [[SmugSnake Spandam's]] mere ''existence'' as sexual harassment. But then played less for laughs within the same arc with Robin, who's forbidden knowledge of the language of the Poneglyphs makes her a prime target for execution by the World Government, while Spandam and CP9 consider her mere existence a crime punishable by death.

* Parodied in the episode of ''SouthPark'' that has "poor" people feel threatened by the arrival of rich people in their town (note: in this case the town is almost all white and all the rich newcomers are black, so here "richness" is used as an [[AcceptableTarget Acceptable Target]]). This is silly, as all the rich people are very nice and do not consciously hurt anyone; at their very worst they are InnocentlyInsensitive, wondering why in the world the native townsfolk would watch movies on a "VHS" instead of a DVD player. But the "poor" people just will not stop complaining about them, even arguing that the rich people are going to make their children go to school with rich children and try to turn ''them'' into "richers."

At best, this is PlayedForLaughs, often running on RuleOfCreepy. (In this version, the "oppression" may come in the form of IHaveBoobsYouMustObey and be portrayed as real). At worst, it may make the character come across as a monster.

* In ''VideoGame/StarControl II'', this is the motivation behind the Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah's extermination campaigns. Much like the Daleks, they consider all non-Ur-Quan life to be abhorrent. They also think they're doing the universe a favor, since they believe in reincarnation and without any other species to be born into, every soul will eventually become an Ur-Quan. Their FreudianExcuse is that they were psychically enslaved by an evil race of lazy [[TheHypnotoad Hypnotoads]] for generations. After freeing themselves and lobotomizing their former slavemasters, the Ur-Quan are deadset on [[NeverBeHurtAgain making sure no one can ever enslave them again.]] The Kor-Ah believe this can only be possible if no other species exist.

** 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: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 scavenger society rather than rebuild on a new planet. We see in ''Videogame/MassEffect3'' that this ties to the plot, as one of the leaders is indeed a paranoid 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.]]
* This seems to be a recurring issue in the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series. Normally its the Dalish elves feeling oppressed by the shemlen's (human's) existence, but as the games went on the Qunari take this spot by and large. Especially in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', as one character, [[BitchInSheepsClothing Sister]] [[SinisterMinister Petrice]], actively tries to insight violence against the group of Qunari that are stranded in Kirkwall, whom have a different philosophical/religious viewpoint from The Chantry.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', the [[spoiler: Eldians living in Marley's ghettos]] blame the [[spoiler: Eldians living behind the Walls]] for their current situation. The most radical among them literally believe their mere existence makes their lives worse, and want a FinalSolution to be carried out.
