* [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} The Decepticons]] don't really go in for scientists. The amount 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).

** There's a downplayed subversion in Videogame/{{Mass Effect 1}}: Saren has a krogan scientist in his employ that tragically gets no lines other than pleading with you not to destroy his work--while attacking you.

* In ''FanFic/RacerAndTheGeek'', ponies who use guns without being part of any official state group (military or police) are viewed by the general public with roughly the same distaste as serial killers. Some relate them to [[WouldHurtAChild foal killers]], regarded as [[DisproportionateRetribution going over the line]] even by the law, as Telny demonstrates when [[{{Jerkass}} Lightning Dust]] gets the business end of an assault rifle shoved in her face for making that accusation[[note]]who's very lucky that he backs off a second later, because the slur is enough justification for homicide[[/note]].

**** Although this ''may'' be a sign of evolving Klingon society. In another episode, an [[OldSoldier aged Klingon warrior]] complains about how the old ways are dying, using Klingon restaurants serving aliens as a specific example.

* Unicorns in ''Webcomic/StarMares'' are absolutely essential to the continued functioning of the Empire, as all Equestrian technology is ultimately powered by unicorn magic. However, largely due to the Secessionist faction being led by and consisting mostly of unicorns, they are banned from the Imperial military except as support staff and are generally given the dirtiest jobs, on the grounds that they don't actually have to touch anything icky so it's all right. Pegasi are similarly stigmatized, but since they control the most lucrative trade routes, they are not affected nearly as badly.

* Comes up in ''Film/GetSmart.'' The agents of CONTROL who come up with the ShoePhone gadgets are frequently bullied by the agents. Subverted with Max himself: Larabee and Agent 91 are both friendly with him, and Agent 23 shows him a great deal of respect [[spoiler: (at least until it's revealed that he's TheMole)]]. 99 ''doesn't'' respect him at first, but not because he's an analyst. It's simply because he's TheDitz bordering on IdiotHero, and it takes her time to warm up to him personally.

* Comes up in ''Film/GetSmart.'' Max is the organization's best intelligence operative, a sort of "nerd" position which leads to him being disrespected and bullied by more active members of CONTROL (who also bully the researchers who come up with ShoePhone gadgets). Sick of the abuse Max is continuously trying to get promoted to field agent to earn respect, but the sympathetic Chief explains that Max is ''so'' useful and skilled as an intelligence gatherer that it'd hurt the organization too much to promote him.
-->'''Max:''' So you're saying that... You're not promoting me because I'm ''too'' efficient?

* In the ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' novel Shatterglass the city of Tharios is run on a strict class system. ''Prathmuni'' are people who clean the streets, handle the dead and perform other unclean tasks; ''yaskedasi'' are performers and entertainers that, despite running an extremely profitable tourist district, are just barely above prathmun in rank. The plot follows a number of yaskedasi murders and the headaches involved in working in the class system; when the killer is revealed [[spoiler:to be one of the prathmun, the prathmuni go underground to avoid being massacred. With no one to maintain Tharios' reputation of being clean, the rulers are forced to parley with the prathmuni]].

* Krogan scientists in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' are so rare that the other races don't even think they're ''smart enough'' to have them. In the first game, Urdnot Wrex (himself a WarriorPoet who feels MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch) sarcastically asks the PlayerCharacter when the last time s/he saw a krogan scientist was. Further, the straightest example of this trope actually comes from salarian scientist Mordin Solus, who was recruited into the party for his own scientific expertise. During one conversation about the genophage, if Shepard asks him whether krogan adaptation to it could be because of krogan scientists making a breakthrough, he disdainfully replies that he's never met a krogan scientist worthy of the title.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'': On the [[CityPlanet city-plane]] of Ravnica, there are ten guilds, many of which serve various functions in the city. The Azorius Senate are the lawmakers and arbiters, the Boros Legion serve as police and army, and the Izzet Guild create [[MadScientist new and innovative devices]] that are [[BlatantLies totally tested and safe for everyone to use]]. One guild, the Golgari Swarm, are basically the recyclers of the world, using their knowledge over life and death to clean up messes and even provide food to the lower classes of Ravnica. However, they are generally shunned and relegated to the plane's sewers, because no one wants to admit the necessity of a group of icky [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot zombie elf plant monsters]] led by [[OurLichesAreDifferent liches]] and {{Necromancer}}s.
