* ''{{Literature/Vampirocracy}}'': This is pretty much why the vampires felt they needed to take over the world. Humans would eventually destroy themselves, and with no humans, there's no vampires.

* ''Literature{{Worm}}''. Two-thirds of people who gain powers (admittedly through TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening, but still) choose to use their powers for evil. Most authority figures are, at best, apathetic, incompetent or more obsessed with PR than doing good. People are unable to set aside their differences and unite even in the face of great troubles, all the way up to armageddon-in-progress.

* Shere Khan from ''Film/TheJungleBook2016'' is a firm believer in this. He's even outraged at the idea of adopting a human boy into the jungle.
-->'''Shere Khan''': I can't help but notice there's this strange odor today. What is it, this scent? It's almost like some kind of man-cub. ''[spots Mowgli]''
-->'''Akela''': Mowgli is a member of our pack, Shere Khan!
-->'''Shere Khan''': Mowgli...they've given it a name! When was it we come to adopt man to this jungle?
-->'''Akela''': He's just a cub.
-->'''Shere Khan''': ''[shows his [[GoodScarsEvilScars scars]]]'' Does my face not remind you of what grown man can do? You change your hunting ground for a few years, and everyone forgets how the Law works. Well, let me remind you. A man-cub becomes a man, and man is ''forbidden''!

* ''Film/ThePurge'' shows that the people of the United States are perfectly fine with a 12-hour period each year, when all crimes are legal, resulting in an annual bloodbath. The nice couple next door might turn on you during the Purge for a perceived slight just because.

* In "Literature/ArtemisFowl", the narrator as Holly never [[OverlyLongGag misses a chance]] to take a swing at the horrid and disgusting humans, or Mud Men as the fairies call them. The fairies in general have this attitude, and while they don't get called out on it, [[DeconstructedTrope the author seems to be implicitly showing it's an irrational bias.]] The fairies think of humans as a vicious, homogenic group -- whereas some of the various fairy races are genuinely AlwaysChaoticEvil, brutish unintelligent monsters, or terminally arrogant or flighty. They deplore humans for destroying the environment -- which they don't have any need to do themselves because their technology eliminates the problem. And they are disgusted by humans having toilets indoors -- which is just dumb cultural myopia.

* In ''The Gameshow'' episode of the Creator/DerrenBrown TV series ''The Experiments'', the audience are encouraged to put on a "Phantom" mask and vote the outcome of the night of a unsuspecting volunteer. Many of them voted negatively to the point where they wished the mark be kidnapped right after putting him though roughing, being overcharged, accused of a shoplifting, and downright thrashing his apartment.
