* John Rumford in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' is massively prejudiced in various ways against ''anyone'' who isn't a (male) Anglo-Saxon like himself, but not generally in the hateful way a stereotypical modern bigot would be. Rather, he's more innocently condescending than anything, passing comments on every group from excitable women to hot-blooded Latin races or the FightingIrish in the manner of a (reasonably) cultured 19th-century English gentleman a century or two behind his times. Which, really, is [[BornInTheWrongCentury pretty much what he is]].

*** Pearl is the most bigoted out of the three of them, as Garnet protects Earth because it's where she can [[FusionDance be herself]], while Amethyst protects it because it's where she was made. Pearl only protects it out of devotion to Rose and is the most dismissive towards humans, which is really jarring considering her kind are a ServantRace, and you'd think she would sympathise with humans instead. It's possible that she may view humans as insignificant [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex to make herself feel better]].

* Haruka Suzushiro of ''Anime/MaiHime'' implies that she finds lesbianism disgusting.

to:

* Haruka Suzushiro of ''Anime/MaiHime'' ''Anime/MaiHime'', the upstanding if somewhat overzealous head of the disciplinary committee, implies that she finds lesbianism disgusting.



* ''Fanfic/TheStalkingZukoSeries'' has [[Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender Pakku]], who remains an example of this even after the CharacterDevelopment he experienced in canon. He strongly opposes Water Tribe members marrying outside their people, and believes, albeit somewhat pragmatically, that the best thing Katara could do in the patriarchal Water Tribe society is to marry well. Since Katara is in love with Zuko and hopes to work for gender equality in the Water Tribe, she obviously doesn't agree with him.



* Wakka from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' was a fun-loving, easy-going joker of a Big Brother figure to many in the party. He was also a devout Yevonite during the first half of the game and shared the religion's [[FantasticRacism condemnation of the machina-using Al Bhed]]. He makes numerous disparaging remarks about the Al Bhed throughout the game, all the while looking out for his "little sister" Yuna, who is half Al Bhed. He later befriends Yuna's Al Bhed cousin Rikku. He's horrified to learn that both have Al Bhed heritage but eventually overcomes his prejudice and apologizes for his previously bigoted attitude.

The noble bigot prides himself - it usually ''is'' a man, due to gendered stereotypes- on doing the right thing and making sure that those in need are taken care of, yet in the same instance has no qualms with labeling those different from himself with [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain unreasonably prejudiced terms]] and [[YouAreACreditToYourRace backhanded compliments]]. Although the noble bigot basically wallows in his own {{jerkass}} nature, he's not considered truly villainous. His bigotry might even be motivated by a misguided desire to be good and "loyal" rather than a CategoryTraitor -- he considers himself to be superior, and superior people are supposed to be polite and honorable. Other characters either are constantly revolted by his nature, or brush it off as it just being in his nature, in the hope that others will get used to it. It may or may not prove to be PretendPrejudice.

* Weiss Schnee from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who dreams of becoming an HonestCorporateExecutive like her grandfather and is training to become a [[WeHelpTheHelpless Huntress]]. At the same time, she she starts off incredibly dismissive of [[LittleBitBeastly faunus]] due to her family's experience with [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters the White Fang]]. She starts making a conscious effort to shed that uglier part of her personality at the end of Volume 1 for the sake of her teammate Blake ([[DefectorFromDecadence a former member of the White Fang]]), and it's all but gone by Volume 3.

** Subverted with Fernand, who ''was'' something of a NobleBigot before [[spoiler:[[FaceHeelTurn defecting]] to Rigel and just becoming a PoliticallyIncorrectVillain instead. Then it's ''DoubleSubverted'' when he admits that a lot of what he'd said was wrong [[DeathEqualsRedemption when he dies]].]]

* Zelos Wilder from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' was taught from birth that half-elves were disgusting, stupid, beneath regular humans, [[spoiler:saw his mother get killed by a half elf]] and confesses to the rest of the party that he feels conflicted about traveling with two half-elves. However, at the same time, he sympathizes with them far more than he does with his aristocratic background, and even before meeting the party, he stopped the Pope from passing various anti-half-elf legislation.

* Similar to Maribelle, there are the noble siblings, Clair and Clive, from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia''. Clair comes off as highly condescending in her first encounter with Alm, since she's not used to dealing with commoners. That said, she quickly apologizes and later defends Alm when Fernand much more harshly insults him for his social standing. As for Clive, while he allows both commoners and nobles alike to fight for [[LaResistance the Deliverance]], he admits that he still believes in the feudal status quo, and Python calls him out on his belief in meritocracy being potentially condescending. He even finds himself doubting his decision to hand the reins of leadership over to Alm after learning that [[spoiler:Alm is not Sir Mycen's grandson]].

* ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'' has Charlie, a bigfoot-like creature who is one of the bears' closest friends, and a very friendly person to everybody. However, he is extremely distant and xenophobic towards humans because every human he comes across can't help but harass him with cameras. Despite his xenophobia, he also cares about their lives as he wouldn't let Ranger Tabes die from a fire (despite her trying to capture him), and refuses to let Ralph (another bigfoot-like creature) kill a group of tourists as a prank.
