* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'':
** Paul, as per canon, thinks the only Pokémon worth anything are those he considers strong enough.
** The Bloodline King and his minions believe bloodliners to be stronger than baseline humans. They further believe that because of this power, they deserve to rule the world, and have control over both Pokémon and ordinary humans.
** Orre has a serious case of this.

* ''Anime/KillLaKill'''s Satsuki Kiryuuin holds to the mantra of survival of the fittest so strongly that she literally decides her AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil by a "Naturals Election", which is held exactly as you'd think it would be.

** The Reapers' effectiveness against the Protheans compared to the next cycle that Humans were part of is the logical conclusion of such social Darwinism (and is in-line with the true gist of Darwin's theory): the danger of homogeneity. Because the cycle that had Humans, Turians, Salarians, Asari, and countless other sentient starfaring species as neighbors in a galactic community instead of masters and clients like in the Prothean times allowed a heterogeneity of culture, science, philosophy, and strategy that emphatically ''proved'' to produce a far better and effective array of solutions to the Reaper menace. A strong species or civilization doesn't have an optimization of traits, but a diversity; so when a change happens, the largest array of potential adaptations to that change are available to ensure the species/civilization survives in some form.

* This is what the Second Stage Children believes in ''[[VideoGame/InazumaEleven Inazuma Eleven GO: Chrono Stone]]'', they are of the EvilutionaryBiologist variety as they believe that anyone who isn't blessed with the Second Stage Children genes should be killed and they are therefore in the way of the evolution of mankind.

* Alex Shelley, from Generation Next on, even after his HeelFaceTurn induced [[TheAtoner run]] against the very group he created, of the struggle archetype. He's come to hate backstabbing, cheating, ambushes and all else against the Wrestling/{{R|ingOfHonor}}OH {{Code|OfHonor}} but endures it all because he believes that those who can't handle it don't belong, and that prevailing while sticking to the code will be best for the future of not just ROH but the business overall. Since Generation Next he also continues to bring young talent into the promotion with intent to help them get better, again with the belief that if they get to good for him to hang with he should no longer be around.



* Wrestling/{{Sheamus}} seems to have adopted this as his credo since his FaceHeelTurn in early 2015, noting that he's physically bigger than most other WWE Superstars and expressing his desire to rid WWE of its "insects."
