* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth'' are there constant fighting between the [[HumansByAnyOtherName Huma]] and [[PettingZooPeople Gajuma]], but the ones having it worst is the halves between the two. The discrimination against them might mamke one put the game down and take a break for a while before continuing. This and other serious matters are never PlayedForLaughs. This is the DarkerAndEdgier [[Franchise/TalesSeries ''Tales of'']] game after all.

* Film/{{Goodfellas}}: Despite all of their success in bringing in money for TheMafia, Henry Hill and Jimmy Conway never become "made men" because the group only accepts men with 100% Italian ancestry and they're both half-Italian, half-Irish.

* [[TheSpock Spock]] from the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' has to deal with racism from Vulcans because of his human mother, including having his human side referred to as a liability by other Vulcans, which leads to a CrowningMomentOfAwesome where he tells the Vulcan Science Academy where to shove it [[ParentheticalSwearing in classic Spock manner]]. He will also promptly [[BerserkButton beat the crap out of]] anyone who dares insult his mother or call her a whore, as three Vulcan boys and [[spoiler:Kirk]] found out the hard way (though the latter proved to be [[spoiler:a BatmanGambit to assume command of the ship, albeit in a rather {{Jerkass}} fashion]]).
** Don't forget that the 'original' Spock was one of these too. ''Film/{{Star Trek V|The Final Frontier}}'', as hated as it is, at least shows that reaction to his mixed ancestry started at the tender age of 75 to 90 seconds. TearJerker anyone?
*** Especially ironic for Spock considering this movie shows his full-Vulcan half-brother EMBRACING the emotions that other Vulcans (and Spock) spend their lives suppressing and (at least for some of them) looking down on humans for.

* [[spoiler:Renessmee -- Bella and Edward's child]] in ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''. The Volturi believe she is a child immortal, which is strictly forbidden by the Volturi, since said children would easily destroy a town with their lack of control over their thirst. And keeping up the Masquerade required the Volturi to kill the rest of the town. When they find that is NOT the case, they still want the child executed -- which is this trope.

Compare MalignedMixedMarriage. And possibly, ThatThingIsNotMyChild. Contrast ButNotTooBlack and ButNotTooForeign, in which people with mixed ancestry are treated ''better'' than ones who have only minority or foreign ancestry.

ancestry, as well as the OneDropRule, in which this ancestry is so far back on the family tree that nothing remains visible of it, and yet still causes this kind of harsh treatment.

* Rexxar of ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' is a Mok'nathal (half orc, half ogre). When he first meets the orcs, they grudgingly let him in with "You've got the look of an ogre, half-breed". When he tried to get a clan of Ogres to join the horde they consider him weak for being half orc. By the end of the campaign, he's Thrall's NumberTwo and general, leading the Horde to victory over the humans.

Added DiffLines:

* Alpha from ''Literature/SurvivorDogs'' is a wolf-dog who grew up in a wolf pack. "Pup", as he was known as a pup, was teased due to being a half-breed. One scene involves him overhearing two adult wolves gossiping about how they can't believe his mother mated with a "filthy dog" and they believe that's why Pup was the only survivor of the litter.

Added DiffLines:

* This is implied in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', though it seems to be accidental on the writer's part. Donkeys and ponies are both treated perfectly fine however mules (who are the offspring of a female horse and a male donkey) are the pun of FantasticRacism jokes. Rarity once started sobbing when the Diamond Dogs called her a "mule" (though she was exagerrating her DramaQueen aspect). She also believes mules are "old and ugly". There has yet to be a major mule characters though so it's unknown if mules often face this.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''LightNovel/ReZero'', half-elves experience extreme prejudice and fear. This fear is only heightened by the fact that Satella, the Witch of Envy that once threatened the entire world, was a half-elf. Main character Emilia experiences this prejudice to the maximum extent, since with her white hair and other features she's a perfect match for Satella's description.

Added DiffLines:

* While elves and other nonhuman races experience some discrimination in ''LightNovel/OutbreakCompany'', it is far less than that experienced by half-elves. Both elves and humans view them with extreme prejudice bordering on disgust.
