* Torbjörn from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' hates Omnics (robots), and will sometimes express frustration at playing in a map set in an Omnic-friendly location (such as Numbani or Nepal). The same goes for Zarya and Junkrat--who, frankly, have much more reason for this prejudice.

While it's tempting to think that this will soon become a DeadHorseTrope, now that the youngest people who came of age before the mid-1960s are now in their seventies and the average life span for most Westerners is about 80, there is evidence that quite a few people actually ''become'' bigoted with age. Bitterness about growing old can cause certain people to develop a hostile attitude against most things or even everything in the modern world -- ''[[FormerTeenRebel even of things that their generation helped to bring about in the first place]]''. For example, a recent poll (albeit a dubious one, since it took into account a ''very'' small sampling of the U.S. population) suggested that a surprisingly large number of ''Baby Boomers'' (now in their fifties at the youngest) are now uncomfortable with interracial marriage. [[StrawmanHasAPoint They may even simply change their minds based on life experience.]]
