* Species native to Westeros in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' like the Children of the Forest and the Giants have this; they were gradually expelled from their natural lands, forced to live in the more inhospitable areas and slowly extinguishing.

* The Narns in ''Series/BabylonFive'' and the Bajoran in ''Franchise/StarTrek'' exists to fulfill this trope. They both represent oppressed and exploited peoples, cruelly invaded and enslaved by more powerful alien forces, fighting harshly for regain independence and suffering many setbacks in the reconstruction of their home worlds once freed. Producers of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' explicitly said that the Bajoran represents historically oppressed peoples like the European Jews during Nazism and the modern day Palestinians. The similarities with the Native Americans can't be overlook either.

* It's impossible not to feel bad about the poor Blub Blubs in ''WesternAnimation/StarStreetTheAdventuresOfTheStarKids''; ruled by a glutton man child psychopath like Momo, who is nor even of his own species.

* {{Promethean|TheCreated}}s in the TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness. Depending on your definition of "species", TabletopGame/{{Changeling|TheLost}}s may also qualify. Life really, really sucks for both of them.

* The ''KamenRider'' franchise is quite fond of applying this trope to a number of its villainous factions, particularly in the Heisei era. You can generally tell if a series will use this trope if one or more of the main characters is a member of the villainous factions' species. Notable examples include:
** ''KamenRiderFaiz'': The Orphnochs are humanity's next evolutionary step, but in order to achieve this step, most Orphnochs will have had to have die once, and to make matters worse, all Orphnochs suffer from an extremely limited life-span that can only be fixed if the Orphnoch King corrects their genetic deformity which also prevents them from being able to assume a human form again. While most Orphnochs are depicted as wanting to live in peace with humanity, many are coerced by villainous Orphnochs into attacking humans lest they themselves be targeted, and when their existence becomes known to the public? Humanity attempts to exterminate them.
** ''KamenRiderOOO'': The Greeed are Homunculi born of pure desire, created by a King 800 years ago. Their creation involved 10 Core Medals which contain their essence, but the King removed and destroyed one Core Medal from each set, thus resulting in an innate desire within the Greeed to fill the gap that is the loss of their tenth Core Medal. Existing as a Greeed is depicted as having an extremely distorted experience of reality, and as their very nature is to desire their lost Core Medal which had already been destroyed, they are quite physically incapable of ever achieving any sense of satisfaction, even if they were to possess the other 9 of their Core Medals.
** ''KamenRiderDrive'': The Roidmudes are a species of android designed by a scientist by the name of Dr. Banno. Banno corrupted the Roidmudes by influencing them with negative human emotions, thereby forcing them into conflict with humanity. With no means to reproduce, their numbers dwindle as the series goes on, and their eventual extermination is treated as a tragedy that could have been avoided had Banno not abused them.

* ''Literature/ImminentDangerAndHowToFlyStraightIntoIt'' features the Claktills, small friendly beings whose SuicidalPacifism meant they didn't resist when the Rakorsians came to destroy their planet. They escaped its destruction, but have since become favourite victims of the Ssrisk, who exploit their pacifism by using them as slave labour and pets. The Psilosians have tried to help them, but the Claktill are now stuck on run-down Psilosian ships wandering through space without a home, slowly being picked off by criminals and still unable to defend themselves.

* While it's a bit of a stretch to call them a "species", the various creations of the [[BigBad Other Mother]] are all likely to garner a few tears from the audience since they are bound to her and forced to do her bidding whether they want to or not. Both Other!Wybee and Other!Father genuinely care for Coraline and both [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice themselves]] to help her, while the others like Other!Bobinsky seem to be ObliviouslyEvil at best.

** the Draenei had the large majority of their species willingly turn into demons through a DealWithTheDevil, while they were forced to abandon their homeworld and spend the rest of their life running away from said demons, who want them dead for having the guts to refuse the deal (in fact, their very name mean "the Exiled" in their language). [[YankTheDogsChain They eventually found a new home on a world they named Draenor, where they started to cohabit relatively peacefully with the native Orcs, only for the Demons to eventually find them again and corrupt the Orcs, turning them into blood-thirsty barbarians who proceeded to almost exterminate them]].

''Then'' Draenor was destroyed and reduced to a floating wasteland, and a good chunk of the surviving Draenei ended up corrupt, turning into parodies of themselves. Even in an alternate timeline where the Orcs' corruption was prevented, the Draenei ''still'' ended up almost slaughtered by them because the one who prevented said corruption happened to be an Orc supremacist.

* ''VideoGame/WarCraft'':
** The Blood Elves (formerly High Elves) originally were a powerful kingdom until they suffered an invasion from [[TheUndead the Scourge]], which resulted in a good chunk of their population being slaughtered, and their source of magic energy, the Sunwell, being corrupted. Turned out they had developped an drug-like addiction to magic, so after losing their source, they started suffering a devouring thirst for magic. They tried to join the Alliance in the effort to fight the Scourge, only for their human allies to [[FantasticRacism treat them with disdain]], with their prince almost getting executed by his particularly bigoted superior. In dispair, [[TragicVillain said prince ended up joining a demon in an attempt to save his people from their magic addiction,]] [[TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget only to end up corrupt as a result and turning against the same people he tried to protect.]] Only at the end of ''Burning Crusade'' do things start to finally get better for them.

* The Diclonii in ''Manga/ElfenLied'' are treated as less than animals, tortured and experimented on and slaughtered without hesitation or mercy. Ostensibly this terrible treatment is because Diclonii will eventually wipe out humanity, but it's clear that this is simply a SelfFulfillingProphecy caused by [[HumansAreBastards humans' own bastardry]].
