** Being a "half-blood" wizard, i.e. having one parent be a Muggle and the other a wizard, doesn't have ''quite'' as much the stigma around it as being purely Muggleborn, but it's still kept quiet within the prejudiced Slytherin house. Notably, both Voldemort and Snape are half-bloods [[BoomerangBigot and yet they've expressed disdain for their own kind]].

** Being a "half-blood" wizard, i.e. having one parent be a Muggle (or Muggleborn) and the other a wizard, doesn't have ''quite'' as much the stigma around it as being purely Muggleborn, but it's still kept quiet within the prejudiced Slytherin house. Notably, both Voldemort and Snape are half-bloods [[BoomerangBigot and yet they've expressed disdain for their own kind]]. That's not even counting for the fact that almost all of the most powerful wizards in the series have been half-blood, including the aforementioned two, Albus Dumbledore (hands down the most powerful wizard in the series), and Harry himself.

Added DiffLines:

* According to his lore in ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'', Sven's heritage as half-Pallid Meranth (from mother) and half-human/Vigil Knight (from father) caused people of both races to completely shun him and his mother while his father got executed when his affair was discovered. As a result, Sven grows to become a bitter Rogue KnightInSourArmor.
* ''VideoGame/SaGaFrontier'': Asellus is the only Half-Mystic in the game due to being a human that got a blood transfusion by the lord of Mystics Orlouge. Other Mystics, save a few that are her friends, shun her, while other humans are scared of her. Depending on how she carried the game, Asellus may get over the issue, or [[ThenLetMeBeEvil snaps and becomes evil as a result]].

* Doctor Maya Witherspoon from ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters The Serpent's Shadow]]'' gets a lot of flak for being the child of an English officer and a Brahmin priestess from India. [[spoiler: Her maternal aunt tries to kill her for it, and ''did'' murder her father once her mother died.]]

** Such a case exists with the Groosalugg. He is a hybrid of human and demon, but he is not a real half-demon, but has [[Uneven Hybrid only human ancestors]], but he is a kind of atavism, almost looks like a human. This was a great disgrace to his clan, so he was sent to dangerous missions, where he was to be killed. But it was better for him, and later he became the king of his folk.
** An unusual case is with the two half-demons Nash and Pearl. They discriminate against anyone who is NO hybrid. Both are of the opinion that people are smart, but at the same time weak. Demons, on the other hand, are strong, but also archaic. They both claim, however, that they have [[HybridPowers advantages from both sides]] as half-demons. And in fact, the only person who treats well by their is the half-demon Whistler.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'' there are Mark and Helen Blackthorn. Both of them are half-shadowhunters, and half-fairies. But because the shadowhunters despise and hate [[TheFairFolk the fairies]], they discriminate against the two. When Mark is kidnapped by evil fairies, they do nothing to save him. Helen, on the other hand, is banished to a secluded island, where she is separated from the Society of shadowhunters.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'' shows that this is typical of how vampires are treated by demons. Vampires are demonic spirits that inhabit human corpses. They have many weaknesses, and demons are usually stronger than them. [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking An evil demon often has many vampires as subordinates]].
*** Later, however, demons who are friends with vampires are not discriminated against.
*** And Harmony later becomes a celebrity, and makes the vampires suddenly become the stars of the demon world.

* ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' has the half-drow. Many of them choose to leave the culture of drow, and do good. But for the other races, they looks in no way different from the drow. Among the drow they are despised again, because they have in half the "inferior" blood of another race in themselves.

* {{ComicBook/Daken}}, Wolverine's son, is half-Canadian and half-Japanese. His named even means Mongrel. He grew up in Japan right after World War II had just ended. Considering how [[ImperialJapan the culture]] would be responding to an abandoned child of mixed descent at the time, his Jerkass nature becomes a little more understandable.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{ER}}''. Dr. Cleo Finch tended to see racism as the reason behind every slight or reprimand she or any other African-American physician dealt with. Boyfriend Benton inadvertently insinuates that she's overcompensating because her mother is white. Ergo, she's displaying this trope against ''herself''.

* In ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'' Virra is a half-elf. The full-blood elves don't want to take her in because of it [[spoiler:and because her elven father belonged to killing touch caste]]. On the other hand, humans and other races don't consider her or fellow half-elf Hraik to be anything unusual or bad.
