* Lex Luthor in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' has this in common, though his reasoning here is that he feels that power can't go hand in hand with benevolence thanks to years of abuse by his father and thus views Superman as an affront to his worldview.

** In ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'', most of the Elucidated Brethren of the Ebon Night feel like this in their low-grade, resentful way. Notably, this is played for ''laughs''.

* Most of Grandma's lines in MyBigFatGreekWedding contain a reference (in Greek) to the "ugly Turks" or "dirty Turks", although she does seem to think that anyone she doesn't recognise as obviously Greek is Turkish... [[note]] Considering her age she could either remember the Greco-Turkish War (1919-1922) or have been told about it later. Toula does try to remind her that "the war is over", though we never learn ''which'' war. Considering her age it is also senility speaking here.[[/note]]

* A more or less {{Justified}} example in ''Literature/CodexAlera''. The yeti-esque Icemen use a form of water magic for both {{Telepathy}} and [[AnIcePerson manipulation of ice and snow]]. Alerans use [[PlayingWithFire fire magic]] to stay warm in the cold north where the icemen live. Unfortunately, when the two intersect, it causes feelings of anger and agressiveness. Because of this, the Alerans and the Icemen are locked in a ForeverWar, with any attempt to negotiate an end to it sabotaged by this effect.

[[spoiler: At least until an even bigger threat approaches Alera from the opposite direction and they ''really'' need every soldier they can spare, and the First Lord happens to send someone ''really'' good at watercrafting to make one last shot at brokering a ceasefire. Both sides are left feeling more than a bit silly after she figures it out.]]

* ''VeganArtbook'', being a militant vegan AuthorTract, plays this absolutely straight with anyone who's not a vegan...and then [[PsychologicalProjection projects]] it ''onto'' everyone who's not a vegan.

* A more or less {{Justified}} example in ''Literature/CodexAlera''. The yeti-like Icemen use a form of water magic to communicate, while the humans must use their racial fire magic to stay warm in the far north where the Icemen live. Unfortunately, using the two magics in close proximity causes discomfort, meaning that just by existing humanity inflicts pain on the Icemen.

* In ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', Nazi Colonel Hans Landa expresses his views on the Jews, comparing it to how others feel about rats. "You don't like them. You don't really know why you don't like them. All you know is you find them repulsive."

You don't really know why you don't like them. All you know is you find them repulsive."" ...And then it becomes painfully clear that he is not feeling the slightest bit of oppression from the Jews and that he just repeats what is acceptable by the Nazi's standards. Definitely true for Nazi sympathisers by Landa is not even a real one. He is an opportunist who goes with the flow and makes the most out of his situation.



** Except there's more to it than that. CLU wasn't a person, he was a program and it was his innate desire and purpose in existence to fulfill the mandate of his User. Flynn ordered him to "create the perfect system" not realizing what that would mean if taken to a literal-minded extreme by a computer program basically incapable of nuance. To CLU, he was merely doing what he was built to do by his Creator himself and he felt confused and betrayed when he was condemned for his efforts. As a result he became consumed with self-loathing and hateful of Flynn as only a betrayed child could, and so he rebelled. Flynn himself realized this in the end, and he apologized to CLU and took responsibility for his mistakes.

* 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.]]
