* WordOfGod: Ed Greenwood has mentioned Artemis and Drizzt are two of the Realm's top ten swordsmen despite their relatively modest (By Realm's standards) levels. It should be noted, however, that there's no indication R.A. Salvatore had anything to do with Drizzt's or Entreri's stats in the sourcebooks.

If anything, Salvatore's depictions of Drizzt and Entreri in the novels dovetails nicely with Greenwood's declaration.

** It could, however, be said that the discrimination Drizzt faces is more akin to that against dissidents from countries with tyrannical and xenophobic regimes, such as Nazi Germany, if said dissident leaves for a country that has been in some way targeted by his nation's regime.

**Tiago Baenre, who appears [[Literature/TheNeverwinterSaga throughout]] [[Literature/CompanionsCodex the]] [[Literature/HomecomingDrizzt series]], is considered one of Menzoberranzan's most promising young males. A ruthless, capable fighter [[AmbitionIsEvil obsessed with rising high]] in the storied Baenre family and becoming a legend to his people, Tiago dreams of destroying the legendary renegade [[TheHero Drizzt Do'Urden]]. Leading attacks on dwarves that kill multiple innocents, Tiago also ruins Drizzt's reputation by [[FrameUp framing him]] for demon attacks, and also helps to manipulate the orcs into savagery by having the peaceful king Lorgru deposed and replaced with a brutal warlord. Tiago leads his new army in an attack on Sundabar, killing massive amounts of civilians and personally [[OffWithHisHead beheads]] the king before turning his forces to attack the city of Nesme, resulting in the butchering of countless innocents. Tiago interrogates a survivor by threatening to kill a child, and when the survivor gives in, he [[WouldHurtAChild has the child killed]] because she took too long to answer. Tiago has the duke of Nesme crucified and [[ItAmusedMe amuses himself]] by "allowing" knights to escape before [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame hunting them down]] and [[ColdBloodedTorture torturing]] them to death, in one case having his dragon ally swallow one alive to digest him slowly. Tiago, named as Weapons Master to the restored House Do'Urden, frequently rapes the brainwashed elf Dahlia Sin'Felle who has been installed as the puppet leader of the House, and also rapes a half-drow ally to demonstrate his power over her. His obsession with Drizzt eventually leads him to hunt down the older drow to become a legend by killing him. Tiago stands apart as the single most evil male Drow in the setting, his crimes fueled by nothing more than [[ItsAllAboutMe his own ego]] and [[ForTheEvulz attempts to amuse himself]].

* StrawmanHasAPoint: The parallel between the bigotry Drizzt suffers and the bigotry people of color in real life suffer doesn't quite hang together. While the racial stereotypes (of savagery, sadism, demon worship, etc.) attributed to real-life people of color are bullshit, 99.9% of all drow really ''are'' malicious, sadistic, demon-worshipping sociopaths who will enslave, sacrifice and kill any non-drow they can get their hands on. In this context, the nasty reactions Drizzt encounters from humans and many other races is at least understandable, considering that they don't know him and initially have little to no reason to assume he's different from his kin. Once Drizzt starts proving himself, however, the humans and others start treating him better.

* StupidEvil: The drow really come across as this what with numerous instances of their greed and ambition coming back to bite them, their inability to ban together at critical moments disrupting any important venture and their constant feuding getting so close to endangering their race that Lloth herself had to come in and force them to stop. It also doesn't help that the more successful (and alive) drow tend to avert the Chaotic Evil alignment if they aren't outright good.
