* The Gem Homeworld from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' seems to be this way. Every Gem has an exact purpose they're made for (except of course the [[EvilOverlord Diamonds]]) and ''only'' that exact purpose is allowed. Jasper implies punishment for deviating from your 'intended' purpose may be death. And so is being born with a defect. Naturally, Rose Quartz was able to use this as a fantastic recruiting tool, as she herself believed the exact opposite and encouraged her Crystal Gems to find their own identity and desires.

* 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.
