* Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl has a few chapters that deal with this, especially in the case of Rachnera, who was treated with false niceties due to her drider-esque appearance and very few locations cater to non-humanoid liminals though the latter is treated as government oversight.

* In what was probably a deliberate ViralMarketing campaign, Ford "accidentally" leaked two [=SportKa=] ads onto the Internet. One depicted a pigeon getting [[LaserGuidedKarma smacked by the car's hood]] before taking a crap on it (The pigeon did deserved it, though), and the other depicted a [[OffWithHisHead cat getting it's head bitten]] by the car's sun roof. Guess which one sparked protests.

* Lampshaded and deconstructed multiple times in the [[Literature/HumanxCommonwealth Founding of the Commonwealth]] series: the first aliens humanity encounters are the insectoid Thranx, which they are extremely wary of, but turn out to be friendly and have very similar ideologies (to the point where even the anti-unification terrorists on both sides end up working together). The second species that they encounter are the [[SpaceElves Pitar]] who are very human-like in appearance, but who are really {{Absolute Xenophobe}}s who only tolerate humanity [[spoiler: to [[MarsNeedsWomen steal the women]] for {{Uterine Replicator}}s to save their plummeting birthrate]].
** Played straight with the [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent reptilian Aan]] who are the main {{Greater Scope Villain}}s of the ''Pip and Flinx'' subseries.

* This is apparently the [[CluelessAesop Aesop]] we are supposed to get out of watching ''Film/TheGarbagePailKidsMovie''. Unfortunately, watching the movie kind of makes you want to punch the next non-cute you see right in the face. The eponymous Garbage Pail Kids are[[{{Jerkass}} complete jerks.]] One pisses himself frequently for comedic effect, another is [[NeverSmileAtACrocodile an anthropomorphic alligator]] (presumably a carnivore too), and another is riddled with infectious disease and projectile pukes. To make it even worse, they seem to [[KarmaHoudini simply do whatever they want with no regard for others,]] are generally quite insulting and violent (two of them start a ''bar fight'') and their only skill is making clothes...[[RandomEventsPlot for some reason]]. The Old Mentor character likens them to [[SealedEvilInACan the horrors unleashe]]d by PandorasBox and they're close to personifications of the SevenDeadlySins. And the whole thing kind of reaches an extreme BrokenAesop when one realizes that the heroes just want to put them back into a tiny garbage pail...but are willing to break them out of prison and give them pep talks about how being ugly as sin and violent to boot is a-ok.

* Lauren Francesca's ''Space Girl'' is presented with a SadisticChoice by the evil [[BrainInAJar Dr Brain]]. He's genetically engineered a cute fluffy animal designed to appeal to Space Girl's CutenessProximity, and wired it into the controls of his doomsday weapon.

* All the nice marine animals in ''WesternAnimation/SabansAdventuresOfTheLittleMermaid'' are cute creatures like a seahorse and an oyster and all the evil animals (servants of the witch Hedwig) are non-cute looking animals like sharks, barracudas an octopus and a manta ray.

* Metaphorically touched in ''Series/{{Dinosaurs}}'': Robbie wonder why they eat clearly sentient small mammals and his family can't really understand him (as reptiles they donít feel any empathy toward small mammals, though they do treat Neanderthals as we treat endangered species/house pets), causing him to become "herbivore" (Dinosaur version of Vegan) much to his familyís dismay. So basically they see mammals as we see reptiles. [[ShownTheirWork Very clever indeed]].
