** With regards to vampires Vimes is certainly a bigot, and refuses to permit any into the watch until forced by Vetinari. He is shown in ''Men at Arms'' to hate vampires because of their stereotypical links to aristocracy. The latest book ''Snuff'' deals very heavily with the idea of prejudice (particularly towards Goblins who are not considered citizens and ergo, have no rights even when they're the victims or murder) and shows Vimes to have grown quite philosophical about his earlier prejudices. His comments about another character finding redemption through his treating all thinking beings as equals say a lot about his CharacterDevelopment.

* In ''Literature/LesMiserables'', Inspector Javert [[ByTheBookCop starts out as a regular lawman]], but is gradually shown to suffer from BlackAndWhiteInsanity. In the end, he's quite sympathetic as he struggles with his worldview.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': "Gem Harvest" has Steven meeting Greg's cousin Andy, a cantankerous conservative stereotype who's initial reaction to the Gems is to angrily dismiss them as a bunch of "illegal immigrant Martian hippies" ([[JerkassHasAPoint to be fair]], two of them had moved into family property and rearranged the place without his say-so). Turns out most of his hostility is because [[spoiler: after Greg left home, the rest of his family drifted apart, and he was too set in his ways to reach out to them]], and he eventually warms up to the Gems, and to the nephew he never knew he had in Steven.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Logicomix}}'', Ferge is totally honest and devoted to truth and logic. Sadly, this devotion combined with IgnorantOfTheirOwnIgnorance leads to BlackAndWhiteInsanity in the form of a StrawVulcan despising of women and Jews. On the whole, this makes him a Troubled Sympathetic Bigot who is desperately trying to do the right thing.

** They probably honestly believe that their daughter will burn in hell for not being mainstream. And thus they are, in a way, in hell themselves...

* At the end of ''Film/DoTheRightThing'', the Itallian characters express hatred toward blacks when [[spoiler: they burn down their restaurant in a riot]]. Made all the more tragic by the fact they were friends with many of the African Americans who were rioting.

* In ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof'', Tevye is constantly struggling with his belief in tradition versus his three daughters' yearning for liberation. He manages to accept the first two of them (who want to chose their own husbands, but within their own religion), but draws the line with the third (who falls in love with a Christian and converts in order to marry him).

** In fairness, this isn't so much a case of bigotry, as Tevye's devotion to his faith and to God. In marrying the (admittedly sympathetic) Christian boy, his daughter is choosing love over her faith.

* HuckleberryFinn's [[RousseauWasRight fundamental goodness]] eventually wins out over his ingrained racism, and he decides to help fugitive slave Jim escape, despite doing so being entirely contrary to what he thought of as moral: ''[[YouAreWorthHell All right then, I'll go to Hell]]''.

* In ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}} [=ThunderCats (2011)=]]]'' Claudus is a [[FollowInMyFootsteps stern]] father to Lion-O, a very narrow-minded king whom genuinely believes the cats are ''the'' SuperiorSpecies. He believes his people's FantasticRacism is justified. Despite all his flaws, deep down he's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold who only wants what's best for his people and his son.
