* The [[AbsoluteXenophobe Itorloo]] from [[Creator/RaymondZGallun Raymond Z. Gallun]]'s "Seeds of the Dusk" (1938) who consider themselves this (despite being confined to a single dying planet), cruelly treat the numerous other sapient races inhabiting the Earth and plan to invade Venus and exterminate its inhabitants for no better reason than that they want a younger, warmer world. This story was written in 1938, when the real [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazis]] were already well embarked on the career of aggression which would result in [[WorldWarII global cataclysm]].

* The UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars are ''widely'' based on subjective measures of quality and superiority, [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement and that's all we'd like to say on the matter]]; but one thing Sony and Nintendo fans tend to agree on is that PC gamers are, allegedly, supremacists who look down on people for using consoles, instead of blowing large sums of disposable money on high-end gaming computers. So much so, in fact, that PC gamers are often explicitly referred to tongue-in-cheek as [[GodwinsLaw "the glorious PC gaming Master Race"]], which originated as a [[http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/9/98500/2445038-4694434071-PC_Ga.jpg joke]] from WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation.

* The Cyrgai in Creator/DavidEddings' ''[[Literature/{{Elenium}} Tamuli]]'' are a bit of a deconstructive parody. For a fun question, how do you ''really'', '''really''' piss off a MasterRace? You seal them in an area so that anyone who tries to cross a line in the sand dies, no saves. After thousands of years of being isolated in this way, the Cyrgai suffered what would likely befall any master race given enough time: They've become so massively inbred and obsessed with their own physical perfection that they are a race of entirely beautiful, statuesque ''morons''.

** [[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.
