*** Judging from [[Creator/LeVarBurton LeVar Burton's]] reaction, Sheldon shows him a video where he portrays George Washington Carver in BlackFace.

** Dr McCoy was something of a NobleBigot, while Kirk harbored a lot of anti-Klingon racism.
** In his first appearance in ''The Original Series'', Kor was a PoliticallyIncorrectVillain, an imperialist occupier of a [[spoiler:seemingly]] less developed planet with a clear sense of cultural superiority to the natives. In ''Deep Space Nine'' he returned as a BoisterousBruiser OldMaster and friend of Dax, now on the side of the protagonists, but he was later revealed to be an open classist, believing the Emperor should reign supreme, and that those of common birth (including Martok) were unsuitable for officers ranks.

* Arthur from ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'' is a classist jackass, but is head of the Kingsmen Agency, which basically exists to save lives and help out the world. [[spoiler:Then he joins Valentine, making him a PoliticallyIncorrectVillain]].

* ''Literature/TheOnceAndFutureKing'' is quick to call out Sir Bors the younger as a misogynist...but he's also one of the three knights that achieved the Holy Grail. Not to mention how he's loyal to Lancelot and agreed to be the Queen's champion when Lancelot wasn't around...even though it's been made ''very'' clear he does not care for her.

* DCI Gene Hunt from ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'' and ''AshesToAshes'' is a particularly good example. (Heavily lampshade-hung in the Season 1 finale of [=A2A=], when Alex tells Gene there's a ''sizeable'' percentage of otherwise intelligent twenty-first-century women who'd be perfectly happy to sleep with him.)

** The otherwise generous and golden-hearted Rarity is brought to tears when called a mule, claiming "mules are ugly." It hasn't come up since mules were established as an actual "race" in the show, so it's likely just a case of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.

* John Rumford, protagonist of ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' fits this to a T. Then, the entire book is a Take That to all forms of liberalism and multiculturalism. He firmly believes a woman's place is in the kitchen, Puerto Ricans are in no way American, and Blacks riot every summer because they want free fried chicken and watermelon.

** [[Characters/StarTrekVoyager Janeway]] states in the ''StarTrekVoyager''[=/=]''StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' {{crossover}} episode "Flashback" that [[Characters/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Kirk, Sulu, and the rest of the TOS gang]] would fit the bill by 24th Century standards.

* In ''Comicbook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', Captain Nemo of actually hates the English, despite working for them. Being an Indian prince (Creator/AlanMoore actually [[ShownTheirWork went back and researched]] and discovered Creator/JulesVerne had never intended Nemo to be [[InkStainAdaptation white]][[note]]except at the very first, when Verne intended him to be Polish - but this [[ExecutiveMeddling never made it to the published books]][[/note]]), he's understandably bitter about UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire [[UsefulNotes/TheRaj dominating his Homeland]], but takes his homicidal rage UpToEleven when there's a crowd of English Mooks to mow down. Most of the casual racism and sexism is pretty much PlayedForLaughs or DeliberateValuesDissonance, [[SociopathicHero Griffin and Hyde]] notwithstanding.

* Big Wayne from ''[[GTARadio The Lazlow Show]]'' is generally the comedic center of the show, but he is horrifically pick-one-ist, and an entire section of the show involves him discussing his terrible exploits with women.
