** Meanwhile, Woody (unmasked, white, and a former resident of the same neighborhood as the poor black character above)) does throw "Noogie" around without anyone but Quantum complaining, demonstrating that he does have privilege, while Quantum does not.

** In fact, three of the four main players are black and the one white guy (who is technically an ethnic Mexican) has this privilege even if he doesn't use it often.
* Averted in [[http://snoopvsparappa.ytmnd.com/ Snoop meets Parappa]], a mashup of SnoopDogg and ''VideoGame/ParappaTheRapper'', by having the player "miss" the lyric instead of causing Parappa to successfully repeat Snoop's N-word.

%%* In the LetsPlay series LetsPlay/MarioPartyTV, the Ztars (or Dark Stars, or Shadow Stars, or whatever you call them) are nicknamed 'nigga-stars' by most of the players, and the phrase is used liberally. Lampshaded at one point when one of them (the TokenWhite) argued that they should be more 'politically correct' and call them "African-American" stars. It should be noted that the majority of the MPTV cast members are black.

* ''Series/AdamRuinsEverything,'' in the episode "Adam Ruins Animals," two of the cats [[Theatre/Cats (represented by humans in costume)]] call each other "pussy". Adam claims it's OK when they say it, even though that's not the really true.

* Referenced in ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/7352899?view_full_work=true Ultrasonic]]'', a crossover fic between ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug''. At one point Marinette wonders whether Chat Noir's signature cat puns would be offensive in the world of Zootopia, coming from anyone other than a cat (as Marinette is at that moment).

* In ''The Santaroga Barrier'' by FrankHerbert, there's a black guy who's in a relationship with a white girl and is called a "damn nigger" by her father. He claims it was done in an affectionate way and wasn't worse for him than someone using the words "blondie" or "redhead", but adds that you may have to be black to understand this reasoning. (The story is set in a kinda {{utopia}}n community, which is also a TownWithADarkSecret.)

* Averted in ''Series/LukeCage.'' The title character gets [[BerserkButton pissed]] at hearing this word, even and ''especially'' if another black person uses it. His reactions range from going into a CharacterFillibuster or WorldOfCardboardSpeech or just plain kicking the user's ass.
