->''"Ever since Tai-tastigon was built back in the days of the Old Empire, folks in these parts have loved puzzles. Once their whole culture was built on them, social conventions and all, and the highest form of art was the labyrinth."''

** Human colonies tend to take after one or two particular cultures; Harvest had a mix of American Midwest and Scandinavian, and Reach's original Hungarian settlers still have a major influence on the planet's culture.

* In the ''{{VideoGame/Halo}}'' verse:
** This trope applies to the human colonies; Harvest consisted of American Midwestern colonists, and Reach was mostly Hungarian.
** [[InvokedTrope Done on purpose]] by the Covenant. The Prophets set up their society so that none of the various races could get by on their own. One character spends the whole of the novel ''Glasslands'' searching ancient texts to rediscover things like agriculture, to keep her world from total collapse.

***This is somewhat justified, as each people group were hand-picked by a PhysicalGod, who created them specifically to align to their ideals. The exception are the Sendarians, who were "created" by an immortal sorceress.

** further played with in that the three pilot learned how to imitate the stereotype by asking their highly trained, intelligent, and erudite ship's captain. Who was native to Agamar.

* The authors of the ''ComicBook/XWingSeries'' seem to have taken it as their assignment to buck those trends at every opportunity. Bothans are stereotyped as conniving spies and politicians, but Asyr Sei'lar is an accomplished fighter pilot with a warrior's sense of honor. Mon Calamari and Quarren are supposed to be at each other's throats, but Nrin and Ibitsam are close friends and eventually fall in love. Twi'leks supply several top-notch fighter pilots to contradict their species' image as merchants and cowards. Corellians are supposed to be flashy rogues and daredevils; meet Corran Horn, straight-laced ex-cop who spent his career in the force chasing smugglers like Han. Alderaanians are supposed to be pacifists: Tycho Celchu, Rogue Squadron's second in command and eventually leader, is from there. The gold medal goes to Voort saBinring, genetically enhanced Gamorrean; while the rest of his species typically only shows up as dimwitted thugs, Voort is an elite fighter pilot and commando who, when he retires, goes on to teach mathematics at a university. Also occasionally lampshaded by the pilots themselves: in ''Wraith Squadron'', two of the pilots slip onto an Imperial-controlled world by pretending to be from Agamar, a world whose residents are stereotyped as [[ObfuscatingStupidity dumb hicks]].

* The various alien races from ''VideoGame/StarControl'' come from different varieties of Planet of Hats. The Spathi are [[DirtyCoward cowardly to the point of paranoia]], the Pkunk are hippy-dippy psychics, the Umgah are psychotic practical jokers, the Druuge are slavers, and there are ''multiple'' species of ScaryDogmaticAliens (Ilwrath, Mycon, Ur-Quan Kzer-Za ''and'' Kohr-Ah) and [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race Guys]] (the Thraddash, the Shofixti, and the Yehat).
