* This used to be a major draw at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]], back when Westerns were popular. Aside from the Indian Village, TomSawyer's Island included an eternally burning shack with arrows in the side of it. As attitudes changed, it was given [[MultipleChoicePast several different backstories]] before it became just a shack.

* Injun Joe, the AxCrazy villain of ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfTomSawyer'' fits this though the race has clearly nothing to do with his sociopathic nature. Creator/MarkTwain believed this trope to be true, the only race prejudice he claimed to hold.

* A non-US example are the cannibal natives in ''Literature/RobinsonCrusoe'', which takes place off the coast of South America. Though often [[RaceLift Race Lifted]] in the novel's many adaptations, the cannibals are identified as Carib Indians in the original text. This is the tribe the Caribbean was named after. They had a notorious (though highly exaggerated) reputation as ferocious man-eating savages for hundreds of years.

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' continuum, the fictions ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5315107/1/Small-medium-large-headache Small Medium, Large Headache]]'' and ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5242627/1/Rincewind-among-the-Redskins Rincewind Among the Redskins]]'' expand on the throwaway joke from ''Discworld/ReaperMan'' which gives spirit medium Mrs Cake a Red Indian spirit guide, the hapless drunk One-Man-Bucket. Terry Pratchett places the Discworld's Red Indians in Howondaland, his [[{{Expy}} expy]] of Africa. In an attempt to resolve and expand on this, author[[Creator/AAPessimal A.A. Pessimal]] wrote a tale of how the Indian peoples of Howondaland fight and defeat a certain General Ruster, in a plot owing much to the movie ''Film/LittleBigMan'', with the wizzard Rincewind cast in the Dustin Hoffman role. Another Pessimal fic homages medium Tracy Potts in ''GoodOmens'' by giving her an Apache spirit guide, who has a fairly direct, [[Literature/TheManitou Manitou]]-like resemblance to Creator/GrahamMasterton's Misquamacus. Mayhem ensues as Mrs Cake and One-Man-Bucket confront the dread spirit of the heap powerful medicine man in a plot owing something to Masterton's horror fiction.

* Averted in many FrancoBelgianComics (to the point of MagicalNativeAmerican), where the Indians are almost always manipulated into attacking by whites (almost every ''ComicBook/LuckyLuke'' featuring Indians ends on a peace treaty).

** In North America, the Pawnee are the only ones who practiced HumanSacrifice, of virgins from neighboring groups, but [[LesCollaborateurs since they were allies of the U.S.]], they were typically portrayed more sympathetically. They underwent a meta-FaceHeelTurn in the movies around the time the Sioux underwent a meta-HeelFaceTurn. This was brought UpToEleven in ''DancesWithWolves'', when Pawnee warriors attack ''even their white allies'', which would have been suicidally stupid.

* The Reavers in ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' are uncomfortably close to [[TheSavageIndian Savage Indians]] InSpace! A more optimistic reading-given that the Reavers are colonists who went mad on the fringes of society, and not some already-present race lurking in the depths of space-is that they're more of a bunch of astro-{{wendigo}}s.

* In ''ShamanKing'', in Hao's life 500 years ago, he went so far as to [[ANaziByAnyOtherName destroy cultures]] because they don't want to join him in his quest to rid the world of {{muggles}}. One of the last survivors of that thinks that Silva and the rest are just like Hao. Which is...really weird in TheNineties.

* In ''Literature/TheManitou'' and its sequels, the protaganist is the undead spirit of the most powerful Indian medicine man ever to walk North America, Misquamacus. Misquamacus is an Indian who completely loathes and despises the white man-and for that matter, the black and yellow-skinned immigrants who have displaced the Indians from their heritage. His goal is to physically re-enter the world and to bring about the genocide of all the non-native American races who have supplanted the Indians, and he uses some very savage magics to thwart those who are seeking to prevent his return.
