** [[Recap/StarTrekS1E22SpaceSeed Khan Noonien Singh]] was considered the "ubermensch" ("superman" in German), mentally and physically superior to normal humans. Interestingly, this "ubermensch" was portrayed as an UsefulNotes/{{India}}n male rather than a white male. This might have something to do with the term "Aryan" having Indian (and {{Iran}}ian) roots, before the term was adopted by white supremacists like the {{Nazi}}s.

->''In opposition to this, the Volkish view recognizes the importance of mankind in its racially innate elements. In principle, it sees in the state only a means to an end, and as its end it considers the preservation of the racial existence of men. Thus it by no means believes in an equality of the races, but with their differences it also recognizes their superior and inferior values, and by this recognition it feels the obligation in accordance with the Eternal Will that dominates this universe to [[TheSocialDarwinist promote the victory of the better and stronger, and to demand the submission of the worse and the weaker.]] Thus in principle it favors also the fundamental aristocratic thought of nature and believes in the validity of this law down to the last individual.''

*** The term "Aryan" in fact originates from the {{India}}n and {{Iran}}ian cultures ("Aryan" is a popular male name in the Indian subcontinent and Iranian plateau). Linguists used the term to refer to the Indo-Iranian languages (a branch of the Indo-European languages), before white supremacists began applying the term to all Indo-European peoples and assumed the original Aryans to be white. In Nazi Germany, this led to the "Gypsy Question" since the Roma ("Gypsies") originated from the "Aryans" of India, but they were still killed in UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust for lacking the "racial purity" of white Germans. The Finns and Japanese were declared "Honorary Aryans" and Nazi party ideologues went to great pains to explain this label.

* Certain takes on ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureau'' will have the ponies see themselves as this, and thus believing themselves justified in carrying on an AssimilationPlot that aims to turn all humans into [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul constantly happy]] ponies. {{Deconstruction Fic}}s will add ANaziByAnyOtherName to the mix as well.

* Before the 20th Century, there was The Confederate States of America, which was ''literally'' founded upon "the great truth that the Negro is not Equal to the White man; that slavery, subjugation to the superior race, is it's natural and normal condition", with several seceeding states declaring that their reason of seceeding from the United States was to protect their "peculiar institution". That's right, they rebelled against the US government for the sake of keeping black people as slaves.

** Said "Great Masters" show up in the sequel. As can be expected from someone who would create the Zuul for use as tools, every last one of them (there are only seven left, but that's not about to stop them) have a slightly inflated sense of their importance ''vis a vis'' everything else in the galaxy and want to kill or enslave everything else.
