* In ''WesternAnimation/ParaNorman'', Norman becomes this after discovering [[spoiler: the zombies not retained their intelligence, but are scared people with a guilty conscience]].

* The ''Film/XMenFilMSeries'' 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.

* ''WebComic/SupernaturalLaw'', a comic strip, and later a comic book and a [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/supernaturallaw/ webcomic]] about a law firm that represents ghosts, zombies, Frankenstein's monster and others. [[ShownTheirWork Highly accurate when it comes to how law works.]]

* Team Plasma in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' are half this, half AnimalWrongsGroup. [[spoiler:The founder was raised with abused Pokémon so he'd have a skewed-view of Pokémon/human relationships, and is eventually shown by the main character that such cases are the exception instead of the rule.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Literature/{{Temeraire}}'' series, dragons in Europe are regarded as flying equivalent of beasts of burden by politicians and field commanders, and the DragonRider division of most nations armies are often kept far away from population centers. Lawrence and his dragon Temeraire have a revelation when they visit Imperial China, where dragons are treated as (effectively) regular citizens and intermingle with the human population. Upon their return to Europe, both begin to work to improve the rights of dragons in the British Empire. However, [[HistoricalDomainCharacter Napoleon Bonaparte]], "enemy of the free world", is ''also'' a dragon advocate, making it politically improper. [[spoiler: Lawrence & Co ''do'' eventually succeed in granting significant civil liberties to dragons during the war, but his pro-dragon narrative backfires spectacularly in Russia, where Napoleon's forces opens the gates on Russia's brutal breeding grounds, leading to starving Russian dragons swarming out to eat hapless villagers and wounded soldiers.]]

Added DiffLines:

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman is a central theme in ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor'', so naturally Hermione takes up this mantle for most oppressed or overlooked sapient beings in the wizarding world. Hagrid also has shades of this when it comes to Acromantulas. In both cases, they're actually mostly right.

** Shepard can similarly become this for the Krogan, repeatedly expressing the belief that absolutely ''nothing'' justified the Turians or Salarians in committing [[TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar a war crime]] by unleashing the [[DepopulationBomb Genophage]] to end the Krogan Rebellions, even if the Krogan ''were'' the aggressors in the conflict and threatening to take over the galaxy.
