Unfortunately, this tendency does not necessarily make someone antiracist. Indeed, if Bob is disgusted by both other races ''and'' women, mistreating Alice, who is not of his race, might be FetishFuel for him on a number of disturbing levels. (And if females of the other race are stereotyped as ''always'' being lust-inspiring and the man hates them for precisely that reason, that might be SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny.)

* [[HateSink Woden]] of ''Comicbook/TheWickedAndTheDivine'' has a troupe of thirteen Valkyries who are all over 5' 9[=''=] and East Asian. [[CastingCouch And yes, sleeping with him is a part of the job description]]. He's repeatedly called out for being grossly racist and misogynist, particularly by Cass, who is ''also'' tall and Japanese and knows damn well [[TransgenderFetishization how he feels]] [[LustObject about her]]. [[spoiler:Issue 28 reveals rather than just being an extremely creepy white guy, there might be [[OedipalComplex something else]] going on]].

* In one ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'' storyline, Sara (white woman) is upset when she finds out that her husband Tom (black man) [[WhereDaWhiteWomenAt only ever dated other white women]]. He eventually argues back by listing all of ''her'' ex-boyfriends, all of whom have generally black names (one was apparently kicked out of the Nation of Islam for dating her).

* Franchise/DragonAge: Elves are often on the receiving end of this, since they're considered very beautiful by the other races, but are otherwise [[EnslavedElves treated like lowly slaves and servants]].
* VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins: Elves get hit with this hard, for good and for bad.

* VideoGames/DragonAge2: A Hawke who shows interest only in elven {{love interest}}s and/or {{optional sexual encounter}}s can ''easily'' be played as having a thing for elves. ("There's always a use or two for a handsome elf" even returns as a flirt option for this game's handsome male elven companion, Fenris.)
* VideoGames/DragonAgeInquisition: Surprisingly, ''[[HornedHumanoid Qunari]]'' are depicted as the most attractive race this time around. [[SpellMyNameWithAThe The Iron Bull]] is treated as the most unequivocally attractive party member, due to his [[BiggerIsBetterInBed size]], [[RatedMForManly muscles]], and [[HornedHumanoid horns]]. Elven companion [[GayOption Sera]] also has a ''serious'' thing for [[AmazonianBeauty Qunari women]]; frequently getting DistractedByTheSexy if a female Inquisitor is Qunari, and [[spoiler:when many female Qunari assassins attack in the Trespasser DLC]].

* Franchise/MassEffect: The [[TheBeautifulElite Asari]], an alien race of [[OneGenderRace female humanoid]] [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Blue-Skinned Space Babies]] are considered highly desirable to all species, from humans to the near asexual and only vaguely humanoid Salarians. Asari are so desirable there are countless strip joints and brothels across space with Asari dancers and prostitutes as their main attraction. It gets a lampshade in the second game when three buddies of different species are watching an Asari dancer, and all of them think it makes perfect sense for their own race to find them attractive but are mystified that the other two do.
* StarWarsTheOldRepublic: Female Twi'leks, combined with SlaveRace.

While it can certainly be part of the initial attraction, this trope is unlikely to be a fundamental part of a mixed marriage in reality, since you hopefully wouldn't marry someone you don't know and love ''as a person''. However, outsiders may still [[MalignedMixedMarriage belittle the relationship]] by trying to reduce it to this trope, either by accusing the lovers of having an ethnic fetish, or thinking members of their own race aren't "good enough." Specific tropes include WhereDaWhiteWomenAt (Black men with White women), BlackGalOnWhiteGuyDrama (White men with Black women), MatzoFever (Gentiles for Jews), ShiksaGoddess (Jews for Gentiles), MightyWhiteyAndMellowYellow, LatinLover & SpicyLatina, HotGypsyWoman, SensualSlavs, and EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench. As you can see, this is a ''very'' pervasive trope. Compare LikeGoesWithLike for characters who prefer their own race or ethnic group.
