** Khan's response (basically saying that he had no intention whatsoever of being an "exception" to a law which targeted every other member of his faith ''because of'' their faith,) made it very clear that he found this trope fully as offensive as one would expect.

* [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Divisive US presidential candidate]] [[UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump Donald Trump]] congratulated Sadiq Khan's election as Mayor of London in 2016 by claiming that Khan would be exempted from Trump's proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States. Trump has had a long series of [[RefugeInAudacity over-the-top comments and accusations]] and his congratulation of Khan indicated that Trump saw Khan as this trope.

** Interestingly, one of the books available in the game reveals that Skjor actually was quoting previous Companions: the same sentence was said about a previous Elven member of the Companions, who ended up becoming the first Elven [[TheLeader Harbinger]]. [[FairForItsDay Back then, this was the sign of a major improvement]], as Nords are well-known to be rather xenophobic, especially against elves. Skjor was comparing Athis to a previous Harbinger, so he really meant it as a major compliment, but this ended up sounding a bit racist in the recent context.

** Speaking of [[spoiler:Snape, it's possible that he viewed that he viewed his friend/crush Lily Evans (Muggle-born) as this during their Hogwarts years. During this time period, Snape also hung around many Slytherins, most of whom became Death Eaters and therefore did not share his (barely) enlightened views. Of course, given how Snape [[{{Jerk}} is more or less intolerant of ''anyone'']] who isn't Lily or Dumbledore, it's not really this trope, rather than ''You are the only one I actually like''.]]
* In Literature/{{Discworld}} book Discworld/{{Jingo}}, this comes up a few times. For example, Sgt. Colon says that a fellow who runs a Klatchian takeaway is "not bad for a raghead." (This may be PretendPrejudice, though, because Sgt. Colon eats there regularly anyway and while he believes absurd things about Klatchians he doesn't actually mistreat any.)

* Done frequently in Creator/HilariBell's ''Trickster's Girl''. The shapeshifter Raven has a very poor opinion of humans, but thinks well of Kelsa. Whenever he lets her know she's too offended by his opinion of humanity to care that she's being complimented.

* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', Andalites are very prejudiced against the disabled, or ''vecols'', and expect them to live lives of quite isolation so as not to bring shame to their families. In one book, the main characters discover a famous Andalite AcePilot who was permanently crippled in his last mission and is hiding out on Earth. Ax makes bigoted remarks about him the whole book, and even gripes about having to rescue him, but in the end when they finally meet face to face he promises to "remember him as he was", or to pretend he died in battle instead of becoming a vecol. This is intended and taken as a great compliment.
* In ''A Grief Observed'', Creator/CSLewis's memoir of the aftermath of his wife's death, he mentions having told her once that his relationship with her felt more like his friendships with other men than any other relationship he'd ever had with a woman. She had to point out to him that it's a bit insulting if the highest compliment you can pay to a woman is that she's almost like a man, and asked what he'd think if she started praising him for his "feminine virtues". He was convinced.[[/folder]]

* In ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', Jool and D'Argo have been stuck on a planet for a while after becoming separated from Moya. One of Jool's fellow Interions makes a derogatory remark about D'Argo being Luxan, and Jool tries to reassure him that Interions are just taught that Luxans are inferior. In response, D'Argo gives her an ArmorPiercingQuestion about what ''she'' thinks.

** Hitler's mother, to whom he was devoted, was dying of breast cancer when he was still a teenager. Struggling financially, he begged her Jewish-Austrian doctor to help his mother, who then did most of the medical examinations and assistance for reduced prices or pro bono. Although his mother did die, he granted the doctor eternal gratitude, describing him as an ''Ehrenjude'' ("noble Jew"). When the Nazis' persecution of the Austrian Jews began in 1938, he placed the doctor under SS protection and allowed him to emigrate from Germany after Bloch contacted him.

* Used by UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler early in his life. His mother, to whom he was devoted, was dying of breast cancer when Hitler was still a teenager. Struggling financially, he begged her incidentally Jewish-Austrian doctor to help his mother, who then did most of the medical examinations and assistance for reduced prices or pro bono. Although his mother did die, he granted the doctor eternal gratitude, describing him as an ''Ehrenjude'' ("noble Jew"). It's a historiographically contested issue whether Hitler had already decided on exterminating the Jews at this point in his life, but by that time he had already been violently hostile towards them in general for several years. When the Nazis' persecution of the Austrian Jews began in 1938, he placed the doctor under SS protection and allowed him to emigrate from Germany after Bloch contacted him. This ability to allow for exceptions to his violent racism only serves to make him an even ''bigger'' bigot.

** Slughorn seems to honestly realize that prejudice based on blood purity is wrong, but still seems surprised that Lily was so talented and naturally assumes that [[BigBad Tom Riddle]] is from some old, noble family, which was true on one side but not the other. He also seems to take this attitude with Hermione. His surprise seems to be based less on concept of blood purity, and more on the idea that Muggleborns [[FishOutOfWater would have a harder adapting to the Wizard society, having been raised without knowing about magic]].
