* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' has the nation of Calormen, the bitterest enemy of the titular country and a major source of controversy among readers. Calormen is a FantasyCounterpartCulture of Caliphate Arabia, Ottoman Turkey, and similar Muslim empires, and its people are described as dark-skinned (with the real-world slur "darkies" used to describe them at one point), less intelligent, less attractive, and more prone to violence than the European-inspired Narnians, and in the GrandFinale the chief god of their pantheon is revealed to actually be TheVerse's equivalent of {{Satan}}. Naturally, the real-world connotations of the country's portrayal are much-discussed; TheOtherWiki [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calormen#Accusations_of_racism has more info]].

* ''WebVideo/FeministFrequency'': The series presents an analysis of how many tropes about women play into double standards and unfortunate implications, promoting sexist values without conscious intent but effective methods. Anita Sarkeesian commonly shares a very brief and abstract analysis of an aggregate of works, selecting a few works to reference by name and pointing out how the work makes their unfortunate implications.

** Anita Sarkeesian herself was criticised for her ManipulativeEditing when talking about a sequence in the game ''VideoGame/WatchDogs'' where the player investigates a sex-trafficking ring. Anita claims it was used as {{Fanservice}} - not mentioning that the objective is to stop the ring and save the girls, emphasising how dehumanising things were for them. Anita was [[http://shetterly.blogspot.ie/2015/02/liana-kerzners-smart-feminist-critique.html called out]] for implying that gamers would automatically be turned on by female abuse.

* An unintentional one in ''VideoGame/{{Gladius}}''. Because the names of gladiators are randomly generated following a prefix-suffix rule, you can end up with a Dervish gladiator with the name "Paki", a very offensive racial slur for a person of Pakistani origin in UsefulNotes/BritishEnglish. Probably missed as Lucasarts was an American developer and in UsefulNotes/AmericanEnglish the word doesn't have the same connotations.

** It also uses an extensive amount of VictimBlaming. It’s peter’s fault for being sexually harassed in Peter-assment, Meg’s lot in life is to be abused. Even when the show is trying to present a subject seriously it uses this trope in Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q Quagmire’s intervention to his sister essentially involved blaming her for being abused going so far as to ay she wasn’t a real woman for allowing it to happen.

* [[http://www.cbc.ca/news/arts/me-before-you-movie-controversy-1.3607977 Disability advocates are criticizing]] the movie adaptation of JoJo Moyes' ''Me Before You'' because of its ending suggesting that [[spoiler: quadriplegic's lives are not worth living and that committing assisted suicide is, for them, a HeroicSacrifice that can only benefit their abled loved ones]]. It doesn't help that the story the movie and book follow is the able-bodied female lead's and not the quadriplegic character's, who ends up as an underdevelopped DisabledLoveInterest, or that at the end [[spoiler: the female lead, Lou, actually is rewarded by [[PunnyName Will]] with a congruous inheritance that makes her able to finally follow her dreams, making Will nothing more than a plot point LostLenore]].
