* No-Name in ''ComicBook/PlanetHulk'' is member of the Brood, a race of evil bug aliens and [[{{Franchise/Aliens}} Xenomorph]] [[{{Expy}} expies]] that fight against the {{Franchise/XMen}} on regular basis. No-Name on the other hand is a RogueDrone that fights alongside the Hulk as a Warbound member. She proves to be an exceptional individual unlike the rest of her race (who are by large sadistic and evil) during ''ComicBook/WorldWarHulk'' when she shields civilians from the impacts of Hulk's blows against Sentry, stating that they only came to make the people responsible for their home's destruction would pay, not to destroy another world.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' backstory, the [[OurElvesAreDifferent Ayleids (Wild Elves)]] once ruled all of Cyrodiil and took the Nedes, human ancestors of most of the modern races of Men, as slaves. So [[KickTheDog vile was their torment of the slaves]] that, when the [[SlaveRevolt slaves revolted]], several rebel Ayleid lords sided with the slaves. As a result, they were allowed to keep their lands as vassals to the new empire the slaves would found. (At least for about a century or so until an extremist [[FantasticRacism anti-elven]] religious sect came to power within the empire and either killed or drove away the remaining Ayleids.)

* Qyzen Fess, the Consular's first companion in ''VideoGame/StarWarstheOldRepublic'' is a Trandoshan. In the Star Wars universe, Trandoshans are depicted as mercenaries, bounty hunters, and mooks for various unsavory factions. Their long-standing war with the Wookiees (and their taking of Wookiee ''pelts'' as a trophy) doesn't help matters. A Trandoshan allied with a Jedi is practically unheard of. Qyzen is indifferent to his people's overall loyalties, and follows the consular as [[ReligiousBruiser he sees them as a prophet of his Goddess]].

** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' has Lily, a Nightkin. Unlike most Nightkin, she's fairly sane (and you can make her even more sane if you wish) and friendly, to the point she regards the Courier as a surrogate grandchild. There's also Mean Sonofabitch, a [[DeathbringerTheAdorable friendly]] supermutant who protects the community of Westside from raiders. Marcus returns, now the leader of a small isolated community of Supermutants who simply want to be left alone.

** ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' Worf, a Klingon (the primary antagonists from ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries The Original Series]]''), raised by humans (''and'' belonging to a former enemy race now allied with the Federation) and the ''Enterprise'''s head of security. Captain Kirk would be shocked.[[note]]Unless, that is, you accept the non-canon DC Comics spinoffs, where a Klingon defector named Konom served aboard Kirk's ''Enterprise'' during the timeframe of the original-cast movies. Though since Konom was explicitly a defector and a pacifist, there is still plenty of room to suppose Captain Kirk might be shocked at just ''[[HaveIMentionedIAmADwarfToday how]]'' [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Klingon]] Worf is.[[/note]]

Most Ferengi encountered in ''other'' series are SpacePirates even ''after'' the attempt to make them the new Klingons was abandoned.

* ComicBook/WonderWoman's NinetiesAntiHero substitute Artemis was one, hailing from the violent, man-hating, arms-dealing Bana-Mighdall Amazons. It should be noted that the Bana-Mighdall Amazons in general were treated as more of a persecuted race after Creator/GeorgePerez left the book, but Artemis remains the WhiteSheep of the tribe... comparatively speaking.
