Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GuildedAge'': Gastonia is pretty much a hive of racists out to conquer and plunder the planet in much the same vein as 17th-19th century colonialists. That said, the comic has shown that no one, ''not a single'' race could be considered good or all that nice. Either they are: xenophobic, condescending, tyrannical, downright genocidal or all of the above. Really, the only reason why Humans are labeled like this (at first), was because they were the only ones shown.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheWorldOfKanako'': Almost every character is a monster and this movie shows no way out. The bullies, Aikawa, Matsunaga and [[spoiler:Kanako of all people]] act just ForTheEvulz. Protagonist Akikazu shows strong traits of this too but he's still disgusted by the other characters' actions.

* A surprisingly powerful one comes from the now defunct ''Anime/KemonoFriends'' mobile game, which was otherwise ridiculously bright and cheerful. One of the Friends' introduction text has her saying that there's no such thing as bad people in the world, and that people can come to understand each other by simply talking to each other, and there's no need to have your guard up around other people. Her name? ''Dodo''.

* The ''WarchildSeries'' by Karin Lowachee has this in droves. For a sampling: [[spoiler: There are pirates who engage in human trafficking, a pirate captain who is probably a pedophile, a war between humans and aliens started because humans tried to take the aliens' moon by force (and massacring a bunch of aliens in the process), a government more interested in bigotry and bureaucracy than peace, soldiers who willingly engage in torture, etc.]] Even the most sympathetic characters still [[spoiler: end up slitting someone's throat, rebelling from the central government, and executing suspected terrorists without a trial.]] Humans are bastards indeed.

* In a lot of incarnations SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker holds this opinion (most famously in ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke''), maintaining that all it takes is "one bad day" to make anyone just as murderously insane as he is.

* In ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', a recurring theme is the question of whether Humans are evil or RousseauWasRight. SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker preaches the former, that all humans are cowardly, cruel, self-serving and will happily slaughter each other to get to the top of the pile. To this end, near the end of the film, he sets up a social experiment to determine which. [[spoiler:He rigs two ships with explosives, one ferrying innocent refugees and the other carrying convicts, with each ship having access to the other ship's detonator. If one blows up the other, that ship is allowed to leave. The Joker gives them 10 minutes to decide, and if no action is taken, the Joker will detonate the bombs on BOTH ships. Not only do they both defy the Joker and refuse to condemn the other to death, it's the convicts who refuse to do it first.]]
