* In ''Fanfiction/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', neither the ponies or changelings have a very good opinion of each other. To the former, the latter are unscrupulous monsters, while to the latter, the former are hypocrites and the ''true'' mindless drones. Also certain humans have become increasingly paranoid with the increasing Equine presence in their cities.

And it does not keep members of that race from acting as a DysfunctionalFamily outside of crisis. A united front may be seen only in times of crisis, facing down aliens or a natural disaster. LesCollaborateurs with aliens are often particularly hated for this reason.

* In {{Traveller}} the wolf-like Vargr fight each other like cats and [[IncrediblyLamePun dogs]]. However they always support each other when their species is even insulted. K'kree actually have species Xenophobia and not just loyalty, which is justified by the fact that most major races are predatory. Humans and Aslan by contrast have a mild species loyalty by comparison. Aslan are loyal to their clan and their code of honor and if their clan happens to be allied to a human empire that is OK by them. Humans in Traveller are as varied as in RealLife and a number of humans are allied with aliens against other humans.

* One issue of ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' has Magneto using his space station Avalon as a safe haven for the majority of the world's mutants. Despite his leadership, as the years go by various secessionist factions develop among them, one wanting to return to Earth and take it over with their combined power, and another wanting to leave the galaxy altogether and find a new planet to call home. Then one day the first baby is born on Avalon, and tests show it to be not Homo Superior but Homo Ultima - an omega mutant that will not only have complete control over its powers, but will be able to choose them. The mutants freak out, steal the baby from its parents and kill it. They then decide to put aside their differences - after all, mutants need to stand together, in case any more of those Homo Ultima show up. At the end of the story, of course, we see that Magneto falsified the test results to bring about this very outcome. He had to keep his people in line, even though in doing so he caused the death of an innocent baby and proved that the mutants are just as bigoted and hateful as the humans they escaped.

* In Creator/CSLewis's ''TheLastBattle'', the dwarves' rallying cry is "Dwarves for the dwarves!" They don't want the Aslan side ''or'' the Tash side to win. During the battle they [[StupidNeutral use their arrows to help whichever side is losing at that particular moment.]]

* Averted in Max Fraj's ''Literature/{{Labyrinths of Echo}}''. Understandable since most humanoid species there are cross-fertile.

* In Creator/PoulAnderson's "A World Called Maanerek", Sonna thinks it a glorious thing to make all men brothers again. It is when she learns of the {{Dystopia}}n nature of the Hegemony that she rejects it.
** In ''After Apoclypse'', the human ships seek each other out, both for more humans and in hopes of perpetuating the race.
