* More recently, NorthKorea has given up on even pretending to be communist and adopted something which very much resembles race-based fascism, but with a twist. Koreans are the "cleanest race", but they're also child-like and guileless because they's so darn pure. This conveniently explains why they need a strong leader to protect them and why government censorship is necessary to preserve their innate innocence. The Americans and the Japanese are AlwaysChaoticEvil, of course. The Chinese are second best to the Koreans, but still not good enough for race-mixing. North Korean women who get pregnant from Chinese men are forced to have abortions, in order to avoid the "pure" Korean race being defiled.

* The LemonyNarrator in ''[[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]]'' does this often, as she props up her own race of earth ponies above all other pony races.
** Partially subverted in-universe in that as seen by the text, in history and in biology, Earth Ponies are actually presented as slightly inferior, and rather that it seems as though the narrator is just pretty [[BiasSteamroller blind in her bias]].

* The Highbreed in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', believe themselves to be this, arguing they were the first race in the universe (of course, there is most likely no way to prove if they are right or not). This attitude also drives their FreudianExcuse of attempting to wipe out all other life in the universe: they were so obsessed with making themselves "pure" that they ''sterilized'' themselves and are slowly dying out. Their entire plan is just a SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum designed to wipe out every other race so that they can't watch the Highbreed die from their own mistakes.

->''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 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 [[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''.

* The Stone Summit of ''GuildWars'' believed this of dwarves and tried to enforce their vision of enslaving all non-dwarves in the Shiverpeaks.

** [[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.
