People who feel that not only [[UsefulNotes/StraightEdge are drugs bad]], but that those with the weakness to use them are inferior to those who do not. In especially extreme cases, this attitude even applies toward people who have had problems with drugs but recovered, or have only done them one time.

* As noted in the trope description for StraightEdge, Straight Edgers can be like this sometimes. In an extreme example, two Straight Edgers actually assaulted another man. However, as they yelled racial epithets at the victim (who was Mexican), it's most likely the attack was racially motivated and that StraightEdge was a pretext.

* Oliver Queen, the GreenArrow, had a very negative view of drug dealers and users, and like many other BadassNormal, thought himself better than they were for staying straight. Then his sidekick Speedy started doing Heroin. The ensuing confrontation went...badly.

** In one episode, Fran takes up yoga with a friend who turns out to be the New-Agey version of this, berating Fran for drinking, smoking, eating wheat or meat or chocolate, and hanging out with people who do all of the above. Fran tries to emulate her, briefly turning into a smug straight edge herself, but cracks by the end of the episode and returns to being the dissolute chain-smoker Bernard knows and tolerates.

* Todd Ingram from ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'', who says a big part of committing to veganism is knowing that you're better than most other people. Granted, this is a world where going vegan gives you powerful psychic abilities. He also [[spoiler:isn't even a real vegan]]. Subverted with the other vegans seen though.
