* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' has [[WarHawk Gul Dukat]]. After the Klingons attacked, the new civilian government pressed for a diplomatic solution. This flew in the face of his pride, so he waged a one-ship war on the Klingons and then forged an alliance with [[TheEmpire the Dominion]]. He says the following to Major Kira:

** And then there is Sirella, Martok's wife, who Jadzia Dax has to please before she can marry Worf. During the reading of ceremonial reading of The Chronicle, a history of the Martok family's unbroken (until now, ahem) bloodline, Jadzia [[WagTheDirector sprinkles in her own extracurricular research]], including: a positive spin on an Oliver Cromwell-type figure in Klingon history, the revelation that Sirella's claim to nobility is false, and that her mother-in-law's ancestor was not the Princess but [[SonOfAWhore a concubine who lived out of the royal stables]].

* In ''Literature/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell is always getting this from various individuals. He's not really a trusted councilor, he's a strange whim of the king's. He's more Italian than English. He's Jewish, his father was Irish, he has no place among gentlemen, etcetera etcetera etcetera.

* Superboy Prime doesn't think Conner Kent is the real Superboy in ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'' due to his lack of confidence in himself and darker personality. In fact, Earth-2 Superman believes the same about the entirety of the concurrent DCUniverse, insisting that everything about it is inferior and corrupt, and therefore unworthy of being called the "real" Earth, until he's asked if that's the case with Dick Grayson, and has to admit that no, it isn't.

* The Christian film ''Film/ChristianMingle'', as Hugo and Jake from ''The Bible Reloaded'' pointed out, incurs on this with its protagonist, who is a young woman who starts using the eponymous dating website for Christians; Despite claiming to have been raised as one, being baptized, and believing in Jesus in general, the film treats her as not being a ''true'' Christian because she doesn't go to church or read Literature/TheBible very often and botching a praying before dinner because she's not accustomed to it. It's even more baffling when the film shows that when creating a profile the dating website does have an option for saying how often one goes to church (including the option "Not at all").

* In TheBible, John 19:12 has the Jewish leaders shouting to PontiusPilate "If you release this man (Jesus), you are no Friend of Caesar. Anyone who makes himself a king opposes Caesar." Being governor of Judea, Pilate held the title of Friend of Caesar (a status above ordinary subjects), and the Jewish leaders are implying that if Pilate releases Jesus, he's no "true" Friend of Caesar (which makes this trope OlderThanFeudalism).
** This also applies to the every day life of Christians. Are you still a Christian if you live in open, unrepentant sin? Or are you simply a bad Christian? This is a very contentious issue both inside of Christianity and outside of it.
* Muslim communities have been known to disassociate themselves with those who knowingly engage in terrorism in Allah's name, [[http://www.newsweek.com/hes-going-straight-hell-nice-muslims-disavow-mohamed-bouhlel-after-truck-481058 as was the case following the Nice truck attack in July 2016]]. Given how often they've been grouped with the terrorists, in cases such as this the trope holds some unusually real weight, and [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment that's all that needs to be said about that]].
