* Humans, to a degree. For one, we have the ability to suffer in ways no other animal can (e.g no other animal worries about the future as for as we know, and no other animal is aware of it's inevitable death.)

*** Even with more perspective the [[spoiler: Ur-Quan]] are very unfortunate. They evolved largely solitary, with an inborn dislike and fear of each other, and had to learn to suppress and control their own territorial instincts to come together into a society. When leaving their homeworld they attacked the first alien ships they saw, but the Taalo were patient and they stopped, and found to their shock that these rock-shaped aliens didn't set off their territorial instincts at all in person, even if other aliens did. They entered into galactic civilization ''again'' suppressing their nature, eager to find ways to participate and contribute that didn't involve too much direct contact with aliens that they instinctively hated, but the Sylandro describe them as "great friends". And then they found the Dynarri, who discovered that they were highly susceptible to mind control and took over galactic civilization. The Taalo were immune to mind control, so the Dynarri had the [[spoiler: Ur-Quan]] wipe them out, and the sentient species of the galaxy were viciously pruned back, any who made less able slaves wiped out. ''Twenty five centuries later'', after being bred into two distinct subspecies, the discovery that Dynarri released their control on someone dying or in excruciating pain was made, and [[spoiler: Kzer-Za]] injected himself with a nasty poison so he could [[HeroicSacrifice spread this knowledge before dying in agony]]. [[spoiler: Ur-Quan]] everywhere immediately started hacking off their own limbs, stabbing themselves with broken glass, et cetera so they could rush and try to kill their masters. When they had cleared enough to be able to organize they developed devices they could plant in their own brains to cause immense, constant agony without harming their bodies, and so leave them able to fight without fear. They did this for ''years'' and were terrified of being enslaved again, guilty about the Taalo, and fearful of all the species that in previous eras they would have carefully worked with. The relative patience and civility of even [[spoiler: the more genocidal Ur-Quan]] is remarkable.

* To some extent, the ''{{Pathfinder}}'' version of halflings tends to be this : way too nice for their own good, often working for humans and easily taken advantage of, even enslaved on a wide scale in half the nations where their population is significant. No wonder most halfling adventurers tend to be of the GuileHero type, with racial bonuses that truly help with that.

* ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'':
** Goblins are a SlaveRace who have been forced to work in a gold mine under terrible conditions with little to no compensation. Fortunately, a goblin named Ruckus learned how to repurpose a mining MiniMecha into a war machine and rebelled against his enslavers.
** Ska'drin are a demon-like species who are looked down upon by every other species who see them as evil monsters. They've almost been wiped out at least twice and most ska'drin live in fear, resorting to filing off their horns and tucking their tails to hide their true identity. However, one young ska'drin named Talus is proud of his heritage and strives to show others that ska'drin are good people.

* The Isos from ''Franchise/{{Tron}}''. Beautiful lifeforms that just [[CreatingLifeIsUnforeseen emerged spontaneously]] from Flynn's tinkering inside The Grid. "Naive and infinitely wise," Flynn called them, coinvinced they could rewrite everything from science to religion and change the world. Unfortunately, the Programs had no context for what to make of them. Worse, ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' and the ''Betrayal'' comic showed that just by existing, they were destabilizing the system and endangering every life on it. Add a magnificently done FalseFlagOperation from Clu that framed them as terrorists, and spread the lie that they could infect and kill Programs with just a touch, and the Programs were convinced that the only way to save themselves was siding with Clu and exterminating them all.

* The Ewoks from ''Franchise/StarWars'' are a Subversion. Sure, they look like cute little teddy bears, they live on a DeathWorld, and the Empire's set up shop there for their latest superweapon. However, those cute little teddy bears are a race full of BadassAdorable,
CuteAndPsycho {{KillerRabbit}}s who are more than capable of handling themselves if given reason.
