* Wrestling/JohnBradshawLayfield in his JBL gimmick was racist against Asians and Latinos, and a misogynist to boot. He also couldn't stand foreigners of any kind, even if they were white. However, this did not stop him from loudly supporting ''all'' the heels, even the nonwhite ones, when he was an AffablyEvil color commentator alongside MichaelCole for a year or so, and calling Cole a "xenophobe" when Cole tried to criticize foreign heels. This led to odd cases, such as when JBL would simultaneously praise Renee Dupree or Maryse while bashing France. Whether this was intended as HypocriticalHumor or was just a ZigZaggingTrope is hard to determine. Or possibly a joke given that neither of them are French (as in, from France): they're both Canadian.

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Most of the souls in Hell at least have enough decency not to curse God or anything well-respected in medieval society, but a particularly vile thief that Dante encounters explicitly curses God and gives him a rude gesture equivalent to a middle finger. This demonstrates the defining trait of the lowest parts of Hell, the use of humanity's unique blessings (like communication) for evil.

** Really, most X-Men villains tend to be this in some way or another. It kind of goes hand-in-hand with the anti-bigotry {{Aesop}} that forms the backbone of the premise. Hell, even Magneto, a Jewish man who survived the Holocaust, is depicted as being somewhat bigoted towards non-mutants; this is essentially meant to show that, for all of Magneto's moralizing and bluster, he's ultimately a tremendous hypocrite who's NotSoDifferent from the very people he opposes.

** It's not uncommon for Red Skull and others in HYDRA to voice their racist views; they are noticeably non-sexist however, and women such as The Viper and Red Skull's own daughter Sin can achieve major positions in the organization.

* ''Film/PhantomOfTheParadise'': Swan is meant to represent the worst parts of the music industry, so he is of course shown using sex and drugs to control his performers (Not to mention [[DealWithTheDevil special contracts]]). He plagiarizes material from Winslow and has him arrested, framed and humiliated to try to break him when Winslow keeps seeking credit. When Winslow sneaks into Swannage disguised as a groupie to try to get close enough to talk to Swan, Swan's response is "Get this faggot out of here". Swan's assistant Philbin is shown to be easily as vile, if of much less grand vision.

* The ''TabletopGame/MutantsAndMasterminds'' setting ''FreedomCity'' features White Knight, a white supremacist who (unknowingly) made a DealWithTheDevil for flame-based superpowers and who thinks he's a superhero fighting a crusade against... well, everyone. His costume combines elements of a Klan member and a white power skinhead, and most GMS use him as someone for heroes to feel good about kicking in the junk.

* Most [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]] from ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'' in general hate angels.(due to their divine mandated war that's been going on [[ForeverWar the past few centuries]]) and view [[FiveRaces medians]] as lesser beings but [[GrumpyOldMan Dakos]] in particular stands out as.he completely mistrusts [[spoiler:the [[TheQuisling Verammi]] and the currently unnamed angel assisting them in hell while the other demons have accepted them]]. He is also an ableist as he refers to [[spoiler:Iratu]] and others as a "generation of cripples" and claims that they will ruin of hell as it's implied demons [[HandicappedBadass with disabilities]] where unable to serve in hell's army till recently.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has [[spoiler: Kyubey]], who is a firm believer in MotherNatureFatherScience. As such, it thinks of females, especially teenage girls, as [[HystericalWoman overemotional]], disposable pawns to be used in their [[spoiler: energy-siphoning operation]]; and the fact that [[spoiler: they don’t seem to have contracted with any males]] seems to imply that they [[spoiler: don’t think males are “emotional enough”]]. Actually a JustifiedTrope since [[spoiler: Kyubey is a HiveMind with no concept of individuality]], so it’s only natural that [[spoiler: [[BlueAndOrangeMorality it would see every other species in the same light]]]].

* Gaston in ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' is very quickly established as a chauvinistic pig: "It's not right for a woman to read. Soon she starts getting ideas and thinking." This turns out to be just the tip of the iceberg for a thoroughly nasty piece of work. There may have been a dose of sour grapes in there as well. The look he gives the book after he snatches it out of Belle's hands would seem to imply that it is well above his reading level.
