* Tsukiko from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' is unlike most necromancers in fiction. Rather than see the undead as slaves, she considers them morally ''superior'' to the living on the grounds that the dead don't lie or go around hurting feelings. [[FluffyTamer She acts motherly toward her vicious flesh-eating creations]], and flirted with the lich Xykon in their first meeting. The whole thing is mostly PlayedForLaughs. In her case it's more of a YouFailLogicForever situation: she reasons that since the living are mean liars who go around hurting each other, the undead (as the antithesis of living creatures) MUST be kind, loving gentle creatures. She holds to this belief regardless of the mountains of evidence to the contrary [[spoiler:right up until the End.]] There's also [[ILoveTheDead other reasons]] for her behavior.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has several races of beastmen, which are a collective group of people that are "monsters/animals" with intellect (Amalj'aa=lizards, Ixal=parrots, Sahaghin=fish, Kobold=a different breed of rat, Slyph=talking plants, Vanu=hawk/eagle, Gnath=insect). The beast tribes are usually fanatic, territorial, and aggressive while also having the ability to summon a magical god to fight for them to cause even more destruction. There's a subset of beast tribes that do not want any part of their hostile brethren's antics and you can do quests to help them out and show people that not all beastmen are bad.

* In the mobile game ''Rebuild'' one of your survivors can, if you allow it, write a pro-zombie book and later start a church. This leads to one of the game's endings in which everyone in the city eventually joins the cult and decides to become one of the "Chosen Ones".

Drafting a constitution at the old city hall will also at one point lead to one random citizen insisting on giving zombies rights.

* In the latter part of season 2 of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'', a group of activists briefly emerged who argued that the Colonials should pursue peace and coexistence with the Cylons. This despite the fact that the Cylons had [[FinalSolution almost entirely eradicated all of mankind in a nuclear holocaust]] and pursued the scant few survivors into deep space, the activists ''still'' characterized Admiral Adama and Galactica's campaign to protect the fleet from being wiped out of existence as a "relentless war machine".

* Surprisingly absent in the ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' franchise, in spite ''Awakening'' having the perfect setup for it. Even the human cop forming a temporary alliance with Selene seems off-put at the notion of having to work with a vampire to defeat the lycans. But for some strange reason, even with the loved ones being turned into vampires, nobody ever bothers to petition for their loved ones' rights or form advocacy groups. * The ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' film series revolves around this trope, usually from the mutants' perspective. Many analogies to civil rights and other [[RippedFromTheHeadlines topical issues]] are made on all sides, with comparisons to the Civil Rights movement, the Holocaust, weapons in schools, coming out ("Mom, Dad -- I'm a mutant"). A commonly-cited fan analogy is in the "Civil Rights movement" theme, Professor Xavier is an {{Expy}} of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s ideals of peaceful coexistence and mutual respect, while [[MalcolmXerox Magneto]] embodies more of a UsefulNotes/MalcolmX type of militant, us-versus-them, mutant superiority archetype.

See also InhumanableAlienRights, which is what a justified ZombieAdvocate is fighting against. Compare BlackShirt and GullibleLemmings. Not to be confused with [[EvilLawyerJoke soulless]] [[AmoralAttorney lawyers]].

** Redcloak is one for goblins, as is his (formally mortal) deity the Dark One, and the entire plot is set into motion by the Dark One's plan to get goblins more rights, either by holding reality hostage with the [[EldritchAbomination Snarl]], or allowing it to be destroyed and recreated with himself now one of the gods making the rules. As for why this is necessary, OOTS takes place in an RPGMechanicsVerse, where monsters like goblins ''literally'' only exist to be killed for XP.
