* Inverted by the Aiel in Robert Jordan's ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' series. They are a [[ProudWarriorRace warrior society]], with their blacksmiths being the people who make their society work. Instead of being ridiculed, the blacksmiths are held in high regard and are protected in battle. When raiding other Aiel septs, harming a blacksmith is unheard of and brings great 'toh' upon yourself. Blacksmiths are also the last to pick up arms in battle with outsiders even though they know how to fight.

They also cannot be made ''gai'shain'' (a form of indentured servitude prisoners of war must perform over a year and a day) given the great regard which the Aiel have for them.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' episode "Poet and Painter" has the two artistic Smurfs mistreated at the beginning of the episode as they were considered useless by Smurf's standars (in comparison to other, more practical, professions) motivating them to run away. Eventually the other smurfs realize that they do need the art that Painter and Poet produce to improve their lives and go in search for them.

Despite the name, this trope can be expressed a lot of ways. A [[ProudWarriorRace warrior culture]] may disdain the blacksmiths who make their weapons. A society of [[ProudScholarRaceGuy pure thinkers]] may consider all engineers to be menial laborers putting their high thoughts to work. A people of artists could see those who produce their art materials as unskilled proles. The low-status communities in question might despise the mainstream right back, but, again, they might not, and all of them probably need people who get rid of trash and keep the environment clean. If this trope is part of AnAesop, then VetinariJobSecurity will kick in when the oppressed Hat-Maker takes a holiday.

* The head of the combined Demon army in ''LightNovel/MaoyuuMaouYuusha'', the Demon Queen, is an excellent strategist and a master of logistics, as well as an knowledgeable economist and a skilled diplomat. Unfortunately for her, the Demon tribes are mostly {{proud warrior race}}s and she's thought of as one of the weakest Demon Kings ever. Even though she ''did'' acquire the job [[KlingonPromotion in the traditional manner]].

* [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} The Decepticons]] don't really go in for scientists. The number of named non-{{Redshirt}} scientists on their side can be counted by hand, and the few we see are distinctly of the [[MadScientist mad variety]], or are TheStarscream (literally).

* In the ''Literature/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' novel ''Starfighters of Adumar'', the titular Adumari are utterly obsessed with starfighter pilots, putting them so high up in their society's social ladder in Adumari society that both the New Republic and Empire decide that the best diplomatic force to send are their top {{Ace Pilot}}s. A prominent example is supporting character Cheriss ke Hanadi: She was an indentured servant forced to labor in factories, and only managed to escape by becoming so renowned as a duelist she was able to make her living prize-fighting. However because of a physical disability (severe vertigo) that prevented her from being able to fly, she was still regarded as a second-class citizen ''at best'' in Adumari society.
