* MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain: Code Talker puts his tribe first, going as far as to research supersoldiers via parasite therapy and uranium-eating bacteria, all in the name of preserving his "peaceful, nature-abiding tribe". However, he has learned over the years that what matters more than a man's culture is how he chooses to act over it; Skull Face has proven that some people who claim to protect their homelands can be complete dicks. He compliments the efforts of Diamond Dogs as a "Superorganism" that recognizes cultural and individual differences and combines them to create a small nation.

* Slughorn in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is an example. While he's one of the most sympathetic characters Slytherin House produces, he still displays the 'Blood Purity' ideology that makes most Slytherins so distasteful; he assumes Voldemort must be a pure-blood due to his immense magical power, and expresses mild surprise when he finds muggle-born wizards with above-average talent, such as Lily or Hermione. However, he won't look down on a muggleborn for long if they manage to impress him with their talent.

Added DiffLines:

* Charles Emerson Winchester III in ''Series/{{MASH}}'', scion of a snooty Boston Brahmin family. Throughout the series his (very many) prejudices are Lampshaded and challenged and he is big enough to jettison many of them in the light of hard experience. Albeit in a graceless and reluctant way.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has Torbjörn and Zarya. Both of them are fighting on the good guys' side - Torbjörn being a founding member of Overwatch and Zarya a soldier in the Russian army - but they both unapologetically hate [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Omnics]]. This is somewhat understandable, as Torbjörn's warnings of the impending [[AIIsACrapshoot Omnic Crisis]] were ignored by his peers, and Zarya lost her home in said crisis. But since the only playable Omnic characters are a NiceGuy ReligiousRobot and a GentleGiant {{Cute Machine|s}}, their hateful anti-Omnic speech makes them seem a bit like {{Jerkass}}es.

May come off as AffablyEvil (or even FauxAffablyEvil) to the targets of his prejudice. Compare HatesEveryoneEqually, which describes a person who is not bigoted against anyone ''in particular''.

Added DiffLines:

* Duane in ''Webcomic/{{Unsounded}}'': a devout nationalist, he subscribes wholeheartedly to his home country's abhorrence of its arch-rival Cresce and its StayInTheKitchen attitude towards women. He comes to deconstruct the trope when he's faced with highly confident and independent women [[spoiler:within his own family]] and meets Crescians living normal lives, shunting him into TroubledSympatheticBigot territory as he weighs his loyalty to his home country against the realities before his eyes.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl'': ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'' is very biased against parahumans, and she doesn't even trust super-powered crimefighters. Even so, she's a crime-fighter who is committed to protect people, she at least respects Franchise/WonderWoman a bit and befriends ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'', and at the end she appears to have gotten over her bigotry a bit. And she isn't as bad as ''Comicbook/LexLuthor'' at any rate (She merely wants parahumans out of her city. Luthor wants them dead and doesn't even regard them as human beings)

** Harry, the Gryffindors, and the other Houses could be considered this, given their attitude about [[AmbitionIsEvil Slytherin House]].

to:

** Harry, the Gryffindors, and the other Houses could be considered this, given their attitude about [[AmbitionIsEvil Slytherin House]]. It's open for interpretation, as the books present them as being in the right to not trust any Slytherin.

* The Brotherhood of Steel are portrayed as Noble Bigots in ''Videogame/{{Fallout 4}}'', particularly their leader, Arthur Maxson, and Paladin Danse. They believe in the protection of the Commonwealth, and the need to ruthlessly exterminate its ghoul, Super Mutant and Synth inhabitants to make it a safer place for humans.

* Mr. Putterman in ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'' is outrageously patriotic to the point of xenophobia, even going so far as to [[DrowningMySorrows getting plastered in a bar]] after he finds out his cab which he thought was 100% American-made is actually filled with foreign parts.

* 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.
