* In the ''Literature/StarTrekNovelVerse'', the Breen are allowed to be individuals, but not ''too'' individual. They have an egalitarian multi-species society based on masking species so there is no possibility of prejudice or favouritism based on it. This inevitably means hiding other aspects of themselves as well, so as not to give cues as to what their [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is.

* ''Literature/{{Anthem}}'' by Creator/AynRand has a society where collectivism has become so extreme that [[LanguageEqualsThought singular pronouns have disappeared, and anyone who (re)discovers first-person singular pronouns is publicly executed]]. In fact, all the novels of Creator/AynRand feature this trope as the ideal of the villains.

* In ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', the Monitor/Anti-monitor dichotomy is fractured into multiple Monitors, one per remaining alternate Earth. During much of ''CountdownToFinalCrisis'' they are too busy arguing to stop the events that are destroying the remaining 52 worlds. As [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] put it;

* ''Series/TheTwilightZone'': The episode "Number 12 Looks Just Like You" centered on a world where once every person comes of age, they are forcibly given plastic surgery and a personality change to make them beautiful and identical to everyone else. The protagonist is a slightly plain faced girl who desperately wants to be herself.

* This is Starlight Glimmer's viewpoint in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Believing that friendship is impossible if everypony has different opinions or more skilled in areas than others, she strips a town's population of their Cutie Marks so they would all be equal. Whenever someone dares object to her vision, she [[Room101 stuffs them in a tiny room]] to be reconditioned via listening to hours upon hours of droning about the "evils" of individuality. [[spoiler:Once the Mane Six expose that [[{{Hypocrite}} she still has her old Cutie Mark]], her so-called utopian society crumbles]].
