* In the ''WesternAnimation/BumpInTheNight'' episode "Comfort Schmumfort", the alien invaders Sleemoth and Gloog dismiss Molly Coddle as being a threat just because she's a girl. Right in front of her, even.

* One of several reasons why the ''Film/WildWildWest'' film was poorly rated, is that the somewhat likable Loveless of the television series was transformed into a racist bigot who is constantly making racial slurs and jokes against WillSmith's Jim West. (Of course, Loveless ''is'' a former slave-owner in Reconstruction-era America, and his attitude wasn't all ''that'' much worse than some real ones.) Also troubling is that the original Loveless was a dwarf and this one is an amputee, the subject for [[PayEvilUntoEvil West's slurs against him]]. [[HurricaneOfPuns Lots of]] DudeNotFunny on both sides.

* ''Film/SlingBlade'' gives us Doyle Hargraves. He's a misogynist (he's a DomesticAbuser and treats Linda like a piece of ass most of the time), a ChildHater (Linda has a boy named Frank who he treats even worse than Linda), a homophobe (Linda's boss and best friend, Vaughan is gay, and he calls him "pussy", "fag" and [Linda's] "girlfriend"), and an abelist (the protagonist, Karl, is mentally retarded and one of his "friends" is wheelchair-bound).

* Helga and her father Bob from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold''. They're {{Jerkass}}es rather than straight-up villains, but they're quite fond of calling [[WordOfGay Mr. Simmons]] a number of names ("throw pillow", "cream puff", "tea cozy") that come across as homophobic slurs .

* {{Inverted}} in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. Despite Nohr [[spoiler:supposedly]] being the instigator of the conflict, and the game [[StoryBranchFavoritism generally making it ''very'' clear that the player's sympathies are meant to lie mainly with Hoshido]], it's worth noting that none of the Nohrian characters ever say anything derogatory about the Hoshidans' nationality, even if you side with Hoshido. Their Hoshidan counterparts, on the other hand, are quick to paint all Nohrians as violent barbarians and frequently use insults like [[MemeticMutation "Nohrian scum"]], especially if you choose to side with Nohr. This is never addressed in-universe at any point, [[spoiler:even in Revelation]].

* ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife:'' When Mr. Potter tries to buy George out, he sneers at the sort of people Bailey has spent his life helping:
-->"A young man--the smartest one in the crowd, mind you--a young man who has to sit by and watch his friends go places because he's trapped. Yes, sir, trapped into frittering his life away, playing nursemaid to a lot of garlic eaters."

* ''Film/ForceTenFromNavarone'': Aside from the Nazis themselves (though they seem to be more regular German forces), the boisterous Chetnik leader touches Weaver's face to see if his black skin leaves stains. [[spoiler:Since he's pretending to be a Partisan at the time, this is a hint that he's actually a Nazi collaborator.]]



* ''Film/{{Suspect}}'': Michael, who calls Kathleen's black process server a "black devil" while mentioning him to her after he assaulted him with a knife. [[spoiler: Also Matthew Helms to a lesser degree, as he appears to be a conservative Republican in favor of capital punishment (ironically, given that he's a murderer himself).]]



* ''{{Film/Sweetwater}}'': "Prophet" Josiah. He's not only a polygamist (implied to be a Mormon who had splintered off to form his own sect), but also a blatant racist who says not only are mixed racial marriages wrong (standard opinion at the time) but that those in them should die, and previously tells Sarah once he rapes her that this "purified" her from the sin of being with her Mexican husband.



* ''Film/TwelveAngryMen'':
** This is the defining character trait for Juror #10. He openly admits to not caring about the evidence, and votes guilty purely because the kid is... [[AmbiguousSituation some minority ethnicity]]. During his VillainousBreakdown, all of the other jurors, some of whom are major {{Jerkass}}es in their own right, [[EveryoneHasStandards are visibly disgusted by his racism]].
** To a lesser extent, Juror #7, who makes some xenophobic comments towards Juror #11, implying that just because he's an immigrant he doesn't have the right to serve on a jury.
