** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'' has a ''lot'' of racism and outright violence towards the Laguz, including but not limited to the Serenes Massacre. Even some of the hero's companions are initially racist and distrusting of the Laguz, and some of the Laguz are just as distrusting of the [[HumansByAnyOtherName Beorc]]. It takes two whole games for the tensions to truly begin to heal between Laguz and Beorc, and many support conversations and acts of heroism to soften the initial racists.

* Humans in ''Franchise/DragonAge'' live in rather dysfunctional [[TheKingdom Kingdoms]] and [[TheEmpire Empires]], enslaved the [[EnslavedElves elven race]], and many are more interested in pursuing or preserving their own scraps of power while ignoring the blight of the Darkspawn.

* ''Series/TheXFiles'': PlayedForLaughs in "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat" by an alien visitor who (in [[TakeThat a parody of]] Creator/DonaldTrump's campaign kickoff speech) declaring that Earth's solar system will be walled off from the rest of the universe to prevent humans from spreading their criminality and dishonesty.

** The Ryugu Shelter reveals that one of its plans, if things really started to go down the drain, was to [[spoiler: cull half of its population to be grinded up to become animal feed, fertilizer and fuel so the rest can survive a bit longer]].

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' likes to push this idea: ''every single evil thing'' that happens in the series can be traced back to human corruption and desire, and there is no external threat to humanity. Supernatural monsters? Humans dreamt them up. The demonic Apostles? All former humans who willingly and knowingly turned themselves into monsters. The God Hand? Same deal, but even more depraved and powerful. [[spoiler:The Idea of Evil, the UltimateEvil that is suggested to be behind pretty much everything? Born of unconscious collective human desire.]] All the horror and the suffering humanity goes through in the series is, ultimately, self-inflicted.

* In several of the many crossovers between Creator/MarvelComics and Creator/DCComics, the heroes from the DC universe -- especially Superman -- often view the heroes of the Marvel Universe as a bunch of arrogant, cynical jack-holes who can't be bothered to try and make the world a better place, while the Marvel heroes -- especially Captain America -- often view the DC heroes as a bunch of arogant, idealistic jack-holes who have somehow convinced the proles to worship them as demigods. In either case, they view the other ones as bastards.

--> '''David''': Think about all those men out there, in their uniforms! Barking and swallowing orders! Inflicting their petty rule over the entire globe! Think of all the harm they've done! To you! To me! To humanity! And know this, that we can make them, and their flags and their anthems and their governments dissappear! In a flash! You and me!

** The less man relies on God, the more depraved and incommunicable he becomes, as demonstrated by the descent in ''Inferno''. While in the First Circle the damned can still communicate and organize themselves despite their boredom and sorrow, by the last circles men are stealing each other's body, spending eternity screaming in each others faces, and eating each other at the very bottom of Hell.

* In ''Literature/VenissUnderground'', Quin shows his genetically-engineered sentient meerkats video of humans committing atrocities against animals and against one another. It's meant to indoctrinate the meerkats with the belief that humans are bastards are meerkats are the superior race; and Nicola, after seeing the meerkats' hidden garden, doesn't entirely disagree.

* Xun Zi, despite being a Confucian Philospher, [[{{Foil}} carries the opposite belief]] of [[RousseauWasRight Meng Zi]] and suggests that humans are inherently evil, lustful and lawless, and they require laws and standards to become good. He also suggested that humanity should take control on their desires and instincts.

** In ''Recap/BlackMirrorWhiteBear'' a signal transforms 9/10 of the population into "Observers" leaving the remaining 10th to do whatever they please, and they please to cause misery. [[spoiler: Then it's revealed there was no signal and that these people are enjoying the torture of a criminal.]]

* ''Series/BadRobots'' uses this as the justification for it's pranks. To elaborate, a robot named Tez One has gained sentience, and witnessed humans mistreat their electrical appliances. So he forms [=TezCorp=] to manufacture products that torture and screw humans over with this trope as the justification.

* Zazie's "Je suis un homme" (I am a man) points out how humans can be quite apathetic and destroy the very world they live in. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSIoP7h4B_M The video clip]], set inside a museum full of visitors, shows a lot of statistics, such as the number of food produced for a given year, immediatly followed by the number of malnourished children in the world and people dying from hunger.

* UsefulNotes/{{Hinduism}} has four different ages called Yugas that cycle continuously; namely; Satya, Treta, Dwapara and Kali. The amount of virtue or vice among humans depends on the age. Currenlty, we are living in Kali Yuga, the worst age where vice reigns supreme.

* Despite the chief antagonists of the series being animatronic robots, the ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' series seems to have this as one of its primary themes. The robots are only malfunctioning because [[spoiler: they're possessed by the spirits of dead children who were murdered by a serial killer]]. What's more, the enigmatic Bite of 87 was ''not'' caused by the animatronics malfunctioning as the Phone Guy claims in the first game; rather, it was caused by [[spoiler: the victim's [[BigBrotherBully older brother]], who forcefully shoved him into the mouth of an animatronic that then jammed and took out the boy's frontal lobe]]. Everything that happened in the series was a direct result of truly awful people doing truly awful things to innocent victims.

** One of the wrathful penitents in Purgatory says that Heaven is not to blame for evil in the world, but rather the free will man has abused. Unless a shepherd applies laws and guides humanity towards greater goods, the species is doomed to only greedily horde the most superfluous of goods and deny themselves true joy while tearing apart the world around them.

* Sniper from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' certainly believes this as stated in his "Meet the Team" video:
--> "Sniping's a good job 'mate. It's challenging work, you're out doors, and I guarantee you wont go hungry. Because at the end of the day, as long as there are two people left on the planet, someone is gonna want someone dead."
