->''"Yes, Wong very racist. Don't like black or Jew. But black and Jew both like Chinese food. Go figure."''
-->-- '''Mr. Wong''', ''Film/{{Norbit}}''

Usually, in modern stories, a character who's [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain a sexist, racist, or something else of that kind]] is the bad guy. This is mostly due to the present day realization that prejudice is [[AndThatsTerrible bad]].

Sometimes, either due to an WriterOnBoard, ValuesDissonance, DeliberateValuesDissonance, or something else, a character can get away with opinions that are... controversial. If the excuse is well-done, it can work. If not, it seems like a KarmaHoudini. Unless, of course, he is punished for it, or forced to undergo a FaceHeelTurn.

It has become increasingly common for heroes of this type to not only have their political incorrectness [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by the author and by other characters, but to ''be aware of it themselves''. This type of "hero" knows his attitudes are wrong but is too proud to give them up, usually due to HonorBeforeReason. Or perhaps they are unashamed of their opinions, [[BlackAndGrayMorality but compared to the villain they're still the clear hero]]. He might develop into a NobleBigot or TroubledSympatheticBigot. The trope has [[DiscreditedTrope become increasingly discredited]] given modern social attitudes regarding discrimination, and in contrast the use of [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain politically-incorrect characters as the bad guys]] is now the rule.

[[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick Lindsay Ellis]] refers to this trope as the "[[http://www.ifc.com/2015/07/hollywood-its-time-to-retire-the-loveable-misogynist-movie-hero lovable misogynist]]" in an article dissecting the motives given in the above paragraph.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Raye Penber in ''Manga/DeathNote'' expects his fiancée to abide by Japanese customs and quit her detective career once she becomes his wife. Given that he's an American, it's kind of hard to write this off as simple ValuesDissonance.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'':
** Ranma exhibits a surprisingly homophobic attitude in the storyline dealing with [[WholesomeCrossdresser Tsubasa]].
** Akane also had a sexist attitude towards boys (though not men) in the first season.
* Wufei from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' in an early episode explains away an opponents weakness because "she's a woman". He then goes on to spare her life because "I don't kill weaklings or women" (thus equating women with weaklings). Eight episodes later another character (yes, a woman) helps pull his head out of his ass, and his CharacterDevelopment gets him out of that mindset by the end of the series - but these [[NeverLiveItDown epiphanies tend to get ignored by viewers]]. As for skilled female pilots, [[TeamMom Noin]] can stand alongside the show's mains and do so [[BadassNormal while piloting an inferior mecha]].
* Athena in ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'', taught Hayate that a guy had to be able to support a girl financially before he could consider romance. When this is told to the reader, it's blatantly made clear by the other characters that it's wrong. And that's before the realization that most of the girls (including Athena herself) could sit on their hands for a day and make more money than a normal guy could in a lifetime, coupled with Hayate's eternal poverty makes it impossible for him to see that he has at least a dozen young women all but throwing themselves at him.
* The Nations of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' constantly make extremely offensive jokes and slurs against each other. The entire thing is generally PlayedForLaughs, owing to the fact that most of said Nations who do that sort of thing are just as hotheaded or stupid as the one they're insulting (also, the series pretty much runs on RefugeInAudacity).
* Allen from ''Anime/VisionOfEscaflowne'' can be subtly chauvinistic at times, coming across as fairly patronizing and condescending toward certain female characters. Likely a case of DeliberateValuesDissonance considering that he hails from a patriarchal society whose gender roles are more strictly proscribed than our own. (King Aston, the head of state, is worse about this, and decidedly less heroic.)
* In ''{{Anime/Robotech}}'', Rick Hunter and Angelo Dante to some extent. Both initially have problems with having female superior officers. But they get better about that in time.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* A few {{Underground Comics}} from the 1960s had satirically ultra-conservative "heroes" like this, such as ''Wonder Wart-Hog'' and ''Captain Guts'', that portrayed groups like minorities and communists as villains. (In the instance of Captain Guts, his alter-ego is even a fearful white nebbish who becomes ready to start his battles by chugging a can of beer.) The protagonists would certainly not be considered heroes in a traditional sense, but are depicted that way in the comics.
* ''ComicBook/UltimateMarvel''
** ''ComicBook/TheUltimates'' version of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica has many outdated views since he is a FishOutOfTemporalWater but he gets over it for the most part.
** During Robert Kirkman's run on ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen'', Nightcrawler was very homophobic to Colossus. This went away after he left as Kurt apologized for his behavior and even helped Colossus save Northstar after he's kidnapped.
* Marv from ''ComicBook/SinCity'' once told his lesbian parole officer that it was a shame she was gay since she had such a great body. She slugged him for it.
* In ''Comicbook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', Captain Nemo actually hates the English, despite working for them. Being an Indian prince (Creator/AlanMoore actually [[ShownTheirWork went back and researched]] and discovered Creator/JulesVerne had never intended Nemo to be [[AudienceColoringAdaptation white]][[note]]except at the very first, when Verne intended him to be Polish - but this [[ExecutiveMeddling never made it to the published books]][[/note]]), he's understandably bitter about UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire [[UsefulNotes/TheRaj dominating his Homeland]], but takes his homicidal rage UpToEleven when there's a crowd of English Mooks to mow down. Most of the casual racism and sexism is pretty much PlayedForLaughs or DeliberateValuesDissonance, [[SociopathicHero Griffin and Hyde]] notwithstanding.
* Lance Blastoff from Creator/FrankMiller's ''Tales to Offend''. It's probably intended as parody but, with Miller, it's sometimes hard to tell.
* ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'':
** In a story arc where the group finds themselves in the 1800s, a number of the "talented" street urchins they stay with refer to the Asian-American Nico as "the oriental" (she corrects one person with "I'm Japanese, by way of Glendale"). When Klara sees Karolina being intimate with Xavin (who is in his/her usual body of a black human woman), she freaks out at how "wrong" it is and refers to Xavin as a "negress". She seems to get past it when they bring her to present times.
** Xavin herself might also count - in her early years with the team, she was an unashamed Skrull chauvinist who used to treat Victor as a servant and once called Klara a "stray".
* ''ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'' member and golden age ComicBook/GreenLantern, Alan Scott (pre-2012 reboot), had admitted that he would never fully be able to accept homosexuality as normal even though his son was gay.[[note]]This makes Alan ''himself'' being gay post-reboot all the more ironic.[[/note]]
* Almost everyone who lives on Themyscira aka "Paradise Island", Post Crisis, who could be counted as an ally of the super-hero community likely fits, but they have an odd FreudianExcuse. The Amazons are actually the immortal reincarnations of women who were wronged or abused by men and are all (mostly) misandristic as a result [[note]]That means man-hating, the opposite of misogynistic[[/note]]. (Of course, the Amazons who are blatantly evil would qualify for the [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain opposite Trope.]]. (Franchise/WonderWoman herself, having been "born" in a different manner, is an exception to the rule.)
* Calvin from ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' says a lot of things that could be considered extremely sexist, often while addressing his neighbour Suzie. Arguably justified by the fact that he's a six-year-old kid who probably just doesn't know better.
* Whirl from ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' is a subversion. He makes some rather bigoted and offensive comments about monoformers and cold constructed bots but he doesn't really care about such things; it's just another way that he tries to antagonize and provoke others. This is also why no one reacts to his comments as they know by now that Whirl is ''trying'' to pick a fight.
* Most of the heroes of ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' have prejudices.
* Creator/MarkMillar's first arc on ''ComicBook/TheAuthority'' had Midnighter admit out-loud that he was a racist after getting tired of dealing with some refugees the team had taken on.
* Rarely an issue of ''ComicBook/{{Rat-Man}}'' passes without some delicate issue being mocked, often by the heroes, both due to ValuesDissonance (it's an Italian comic, and political correctness is usually despised as hypocrisy in Italy) and [[AuthorTract the author having an outrageous sense of humor even for Italians]].
--> '''Rat-Man:''' “With all this politically correct words we do not understand what the activity-between-two-people-for-the-purposes-of-pleasure-and/or-reproduction[[note]]Yes, it's an euphemism for "fuck", duh.[[/note]] we want to say any more”
* Hilariously parodied/subverted in Joss Whedon's ''ComicBook/AstonishingXMen'' run:
-->'''[[ComicBook/FantasticFour The Thing]]''': Didn't they come up with a cure for your kind?
-->'''{{ComicBook/Wolverine}}''': You got a problem with mutants?
-->'''The Thing''': [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments I meant Canadians.]]

* ''Fanfic/{{Equestrylvania}}'': [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin Charlotte]] grew up in the 1930s, and thus sees nothing wrong with using terms like "negro" and "colored people" when comparing Zebra culture in Equestria with African culture on Earth. [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow Soma]] has to remind himself that [[DeliberateValuesDissonance to her it seems perfectly normal and acceptable]].
* ''FanFic/AShadowOfTheTitans'' plays this for laughs as a RunningGag with Beast Boy -- after the first encounter with Jade, he refers to her as a midget, with the other Titans reminding him that that is no longer a politically correct term. Later, he unintentionally performs mild racial profiling by comparing Jade with Mumbo because they both have blue skin.
* The notorious ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fic "Hogwarts School or Prayer and Miracles" does this to the whole main cast. The author is [[PoesLaw (or pretends to be)]] of the opinion that women are created to be subservient to men. Hermione is accordingly changed into a brainless girl in a frilly pink dress who cries almost all the time so that manly Harry can comfort her.
* Tsumugi Nikaido in ''Fanfic/RhythmicPrettyCure'' is a mild example; she's got enough of a grudge against the Canadians over what Creator/{{DiC}} [[ThinlyVeiledDubCountryChange did]] [[{{Macekre}} to]] ''Anime/SailorMoon'' to openly refer to them using an ethnic slur, much to the SweatDrop-inducing embarrassment of her friends, and she sometimes {{troll}}s her American teammates on the cheer squad and the Americans on the Tigers baseball team by invoking "Flavour 2 {{Eagleland}}er" stereotypes in their presence.
* Kim Possible is the "innocently ignorant" variant in ''Fanfic/TheTouchOfGreenFire''. When Shego comes out to her one of the first things that comes out of her mouth is "Aren't you just misinformed?". Kim herself is either bisexual or lesbian, but she didn't realize it at the time.

* ''WebVideo/ItalianSpiderman''. For all his [[HypocriticalHumour "Respecte la donna!"]], he's the biggest sexist of all time. And it's ''[[CrossesTheLineTwice hilarious]]''.
* A lot of monster movies have the girl falling in love with the biggest chauvinist in the cast. ''Film/KingKong1933'' probably started it, but it's alive and well twenty years later in ''Film/{{Them}}'' and the [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]-ified ''Film/TheDeadlyMantis''.
-->"[[DoubleEntendre But I've got a mantis in my pantis!]]"
* Jack Crow from ''Film/JohnCarpentersVampires'' is a sexist.
* Film/JamesBond, especially when played by Creator/SeanConnery. Seriously, he treats women as nothing more than sex objects. In ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'' alone he actually seduces ''two'' of them (first that one girl on the balcony who is helping someone cheat at gin rummy and then later on Pussy Galore) and everyone is okay with it, not to mention that whenever his girlfriends get killed horribly, he barely spends more than a few minutes grieving before he is in the arms of another in the very next scene, apparently having completely forgotten about the other girl he just confessed his love for. In any realistic setting he probably would have been court-martialled... several times, and he would be fired from the British secret service if it weren't for the fact that [[VetinariJobSecurity they apparently don't have any other agents remotely competent enough to do the job]].
** Subverted as, [[FilmOfTheBook in the books they're adapted from]], the sexual encounters are one-night stands (to Bond at least).
* [[Creator/RayWinstone Cpt. Stanley]] in ''Film/TheProposition'' really does mean well, but he's certainly a man of his time in terms of his views on gender politics.
%%* Mr. Wong in ''Film/{{Norbit}}''.
* Ron Burgundy in ''Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy''. He is offended by a woman holding the same news position as him, so much that it ends up ruining his relationship with Veronica. In the [[Film/Anchorman2TheLegendContinues sequel]], although he's not outwardly racist, he can't get over the fact that his new boss is black and offends her family with incessant stereotypes.
* In ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', bigotry against toons seems sadly common, and even Eddie Valiant, the protagonist, shows signs of it initially (although he has a FreudianExcuse, seeing as his brother was murdered by a toon). There are still a few toons who he regards as friends at the beginning of the film, however, like Betty Boop. Eddie got better afterwards.
* The Mole in ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'' is a character who helps the boys rescue Terrance and Phillip, but can barely go 30 seconds without saying something extremely blasphemous.
* Gus, the dad in ''Film/MyBigFatGreekWedding''.
* The truncated ending to ''Film/TwilightZoneTheMovie'' film segment "A Quality of Mercy" seems to suggest this, as Mr. Conner ends up shipped to off to his death in a concentration camp as punishment for simply being a bigot, with the UnfortunateImplications that bigotry not only should not be forgiven, but it ''cannot'' be forgiven. Of course, this message was not intended: Mr. Conner was going to be redeemed in the original ending after risking himself to save two young Vietnamese children, but a tragic [[RealLifeWritesThePlot freak accident on set]] forced the director to go with the much darker ending shown in the film.
* In ''Film/GranTorino'', the main character Walt Kowalski is a racist white veteran of the Korean War who has several disputes with his Hmong neighbors. Though he eventually warms up to them and they to him, he makes several politically incorrect jokes at the expense of Asians.
** He's also shown to good-naturedly swap ethnic barbs with his white friends ("What's happening, ya greasy dago" "Not much, ya dumb Polack"), suggesting his slurs aren't necessarily mean spirited. Racial sensitivity is just something he never learned.
* ''Film/{{Chinatown}}'' is set in the 1930s and Jake has a um... ''period authentic attitude'' toward minorities. He also likes telling dirty jokes, usually unaware of women [[RightBehindMe Right Behind Him]].
* Even the non-corrupt officers in ''Film/LAConfidential'' are slightly racist towards African Americans.
* He wasn't the protagonist, but the co-pilot in ''Film/SnakesOnAPlane'' was constantly on the edge of a sexual harassment lawsuit with the way he talked. After the pilot died, he locked himself in a cockpit full of snakes and kept the plane up until he died, making suggestive jokes to the flight attendants up to the end. To their credit, he was fairly good friends with the flight attendants, and it was mostly just friendly banter.
* The titular character of ''Film/DirtyHarry'' definitely qualifies:
-->'''Gonzales:''' There is one question, Inspector Callahan: Why do they call you "Dirty Harry"?
-->'''De Georgio:''' Ah that's one thing about our Harry, doesn't play any favorites! [[HatesEveryoneEqually Harry hates everybody]]: Limeys, Micks, Hebes, Fat Dagos, Niggers, Honkies, Chinks, you name it.
-->'''Gonzales:''' How does he feel about Mexicans?
-->'''De Georgio:''' Ask him.
-->'''Harry Callahan:''' [[EspeciallyZoidberg Especially Spics]].
* ''Film/TheDictator'' and ''Film/{{Borat}}''. Since Creator/SachaBaronCohen is involved, it's not surprising the protagonists are over-the-top racists, misogynists and antisemites.
* The eponymous character of ''{{Film/Ted}}''.
* Many of Creator/ShaneBlack's characters are this.
** In the original ''Film/LethalWeapon'' there are two lines of dialogue that imply that the character Martin Riggs (Played by Creator/MelGibson) is somewhat homophobic. Well, it was the 80s.
** ''Film/TheLastBoyScout'' (Also written by Black) uses the same line "What are you, a fag?", this time by the protagonist [[Creator/BruceWillis Joe Hallenbeck]].
** ''Film/KissKissBangBang'' has a much milder example. Harry sometimes reacts with disgust when his partner Gay Perry makes a reference to homosexuality, but he doesn't treat him any differently.
* In ''Film/ConAir'', the prison guard in charge of transporting the prisoners calls Pinball "the skinniest Negro I have ever seen."
* The protagonist of ''Film/{{Thunderheart}}'' is an FBI agent who's a quarter Native American, but identifies as white and [[BoomerangBigot has almost completely turned his back on the heritage of his half-Sioux father]]. When he's assigned to a Sioux reservation to investigate a murder, he's not at all happy about it. Throughout most of the film, he feels almost no sympathy toward any of the Native American characters (except for a schoolteacher with whom he falls in love) and even mocks Sioux religious beliefs. He does eventually come to embrace his heritage, though.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':
** At the start of ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', Padmé is one by default. As most sources say, she along with most of the Naboo regard the Gungans as a barbaric and uncivilized species, and have treated them as inferior for most of their history. As a result, Boss Nass is reluctant to ally himself with the Naboo during the Trade Federation's invasion. Padmé sees the error of this way of thinking, and when an alliance becomes crucial, she doesn't bother trying to make excuses for it; [[HumbleHero she simply kneels and pleads with him for his help.]] Fortunately, it works.
** In ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' Obi-Wan actually says "If droids could think, then none of us would be here". This is despite droids like R2-D2 and C-3PO showing undeniable proof that they have minds of their own.
* ''Film/TheSteelHelmet'' by Creator/SamuelFuller was made during UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar and was controversial and daring for its time for portraying the American side in that war as a bunch of racists and hypocrites whose soldiers were held together by TeethClenchedTeamwork, who would commit ObligatoryWarCrimeScene and that the most competent and dependable soldiers were the Japanese-American and African-American who were totally cynical about how little their wartime service and bravery would provide them in civilian life.
* Lily, Vera's partner, in ''Film/VeraDrake''. While she greatly helps Vera out and indeed is the source of most of Vera's business (back-alley abortions) through word of mouth, she has a dim view of their black patient, whom she calls a "darkie," and of immigrants in general.
* Danny Archer of ''Film/BloodDiamond'' is a subtler version that also has shades of TragicBigot. While not overtly racist, he does seem to be rather resentful towards black people. A white Zimbabwean (or, [[InsistentTerminology as he calls it, Rhodesia]]), his parents were horrifically murdered by Shona rebels during the movement for Zimbabwean independence, and after fleeing to South Africa and joining the army, he fought in Angola for several years, against exclusively black enemies.
* Blain, Wrestling/JesseVentura's character in ''Film/{{Predator}}'', makes a homophobic remark when no one would take some of his chewing tobacco.
* ''Film/CampXRay'': Cole initially displays some bigotry towards the detainees, making the stereotypical assumption that they only read the Koran.
* Franchise/AustinPowers is something of a NobleBigot, having slept through several decades of societal changes.
* Arthur from ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'' is a classist jackass, but is head of the Kingsman Agency, which basically exists to save lives and help out the world. [[spoiler:Then he joins Valentine, making him a PoliticallyIncorrectVillain]].
* When Snake Plissken in ''Film/EscapeFromLA'' [[spoiler: finds out that the transgender Hershe Las Palmas was originally an old associate of his, "Carjack" Malone, he persists in calling Hershe "Carjack" despite her objections.]]
* The soldiers in ''Film/FullMetalJacket'' are all openly racist.
* In ''Film/XMen1'', Wolverine calls [[GeniusCripple Xavier]] "Wheels" in mockery of the mutants' use of codenames.
* In ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'', Naveen looks down on Tiana for being a waitress (he initially thought she was a princess, and believes that she tricked him). He also flirts with a number of women when he's fixing to get married, and a deleted line has him saying "I don't take advantage of women. I give them pleasure." He gets over it as the movie progresses, and Tiana teaches him to be less of [[TheHedonist a hedonist]].
* ''Film/TradingPlaces'' has [[PreppyName Louis Winthorpe III]] played by Creator/DanAykroyd, who mistook two-bit con man Billy Ray Valentine, played by Creator/EddieMurphy, as a thief after Valentine tried to apologize for accidentally bumping into him. Later, when Valentine [[spoiler: tries to warn Winthorpe about the Duke brothers' $1 bet that would've destroyed their lives, following Winthorpe's failed suicide attempt]], Winthorpe thinks [[AllJustADream his whole ordeal was a nightmare caused by that "awful negro,"]] and when he comes to his senses tries to strangle Valentine.
* The Brazilian movie ''Film/OAutoDaCompadecida'' has the main protagonist Jack the Cricket make a racist remark towards Jesus Christ, who is black in this movie, saying that he expected him to be "much less burned" and his "not being the best of colors". Jesus [[AllLovingHero being Jesus]] takes it in stride, but he calls him on his racism.

* 'Fat Ollie' Weeks from the ''Literature/EightySeventhPrecinct'' novels by Creator/EdMcBain. Very much a NobleBigotWithABadge, Ollie's multiple prejudices don't get in the way of him being very effective cop; possibly because he seems bigoted against all groups equally.
* The Andalites, the "[[KnightTemplar good guy]]" aliens from ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', in addition to being generally arrogant and seeing themselves as better than other species, feel female Andalites shouldn't become warriors, instead preferring they be scientists and artists in a society that [[SubvertedTrope subverts]] KlingonScientistsGetNoRespect, and one book shows that female military cadets are a recent innovation. Disabled Andalites are excluded from normal society, but apparently it's felt that this is for their own benefit (a belief that [[AlienAmongUs Ax]] eventually realizes is misguided).
* In ''[[http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015BWS9J0?redirect=true&ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_0 The Antagonists]]'', Flexis, the leader of the superhero group The Quartet, repeatedly calls the main character Minnie (who is in a wheelchair) a retard and mocks her for her disability. He also expresses homophobic and racist views at various point.
* Kyle Kingsley of ''Literature/{{Beastly}}'' makes a number of comments about objectifying women, and explicitly states at one point that he knows what to do to manipulate his girlfriend into being happy enough to have sex with him. This is contrasted to how he eventually views Lindsey, valuing her intelligence and personality and wanting a meaningful relationship with her, all of which show his growth as a person.
* Remo and Chiun of ''Literature/TheDestroyer'' regularly throw out sexist and racist comments and are called on it by other characters. Then again, [[CrapsackWorld the way their world is]], they're not always wrong.
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'''s Sergeant Colon gets the "product of his time" excuse; he's somewhere in late middle age when he's introduced in Guards! Guards!, and upgrades to "elderly" sometime before Thud! He's known to think of dwarfs and trolls as "gritsuckers" and "rocks" (speciesist slurs, both), and is a little too eager to buy into anti-Klatchian propaganda in Jingo. Vimes, by comparison, comes off as a bit speciesist on the surface, but A) nonhumans under his command put up with it because they know he's got their back when they're in trouble and B) he doesn't much care for humans, either. It can be summed up as "Sam Vimes only likes other coppers, his wife, their child, and their butler." (And it doesn't hurt that Willikins the butler is a member of the "Specials"—The Ankh-Morpork City Militia.)
* David Lurie, the white protagonist of the South African novel ''Literature/{{Disgrace}}'', is openly sexist, and retains a condescending attitude towards blacks. He's perfectly fine with his daughter's homosexuality, however.
* Virgil is constantly praised in ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' and he is the one who leads Dante on the path to Heaven, but he also is a Pagan from Hell who never accepted Christ as all decent people were expected to in medieval Italian society. It can be easy to forget Virgil's paganism, but Dante notices it and is embarrassed when the mentor he loves talks about how he helped a pagan necromancer bring some souls back from the circle of Judas.
* Shep the German shepherd from ''Literature/{{Dogs Of The Drowned City}}'' is a HeroicDog... except that he and his best friend Zeus hate small dogs ("[[FantasticRacism yappers]]"). But Shep gets over this attitude later on in the first book, placing all dogs' safety before any certain dog.
* Kvothe from ''Literature/TheKingkillerChronicle'' subconsciously objectifies women. This becomes obvious when he likens women in general to music instruments to be played by him, acknowledges that women would consider that rude and sexist, and accuses them in advance to not understand his love of music - in his subconscious worldview, women actually are objects and thus can only rightfully feel insulted by comparisons to worthless objects, not by comparisons to valuable and beloved objects. This illustrates the fact that it is impossible to completely separate oneself from one's culture. Kvothe's male enemies are usually much more explicitly sexist, and he disapproves of their behaviour, which makes him somewhat likeable in comparison.
* ''Literature/TheOnceAndFutureKing'' is quick to call out Sir Bors the younger as a misogynist...but he's also one of the three knights that achieved the Holy Grail. Not to mention how he's loyal to Lancelot and agreed to be the Queen's champion when Lancelot wasn't around...even though it's been made ''very'' clear he does not care for her.
* [=McMurphy=], the hero of ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'', is both racist and sexist (although some of this can be attributed to ValuesDissonance). He repeatedly calls the black orderlies "coons," and at one point he claims that women who aren't sex objects are oppressive to men. In fact, when he first arrives at the mental hospital, before he comes to see just how much of a '''[[BattleaxeNurse sociopath]]''' Nurse Ratched is, his initial objection to her power is that it's "unnatural" for men to be so completely under the authority of a woman.
* The Hunters of Artemis from ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' all hate men and boys, but are willing to help them for the greater good.
* Although it's a stretch to say any of Creator/PhilipKDick's protagonists are "heroes" in the traditional sense, quite a few are decidedly ''not'' politically correct. It can range from as minor as a man thinking uncharitable thoughts about womankind after being spurned to as major as Rick Deckard from ''Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep'', who spends the entire book going on rambling Nazi rants about the ''Untermenschen'' androids trying to destroy human civilization. Of course, Dick wasn't really interested in writing about paragons of human virtue; his own views were usually somewhat removed from the characters he wrote about.
* In Creator/StephenKing's novel ''Literature/TheRunningMan'', first published under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman, the main character is this. He uses the words "Negro" and "nigger," both of which mark him as out of place in 2025, an anachronism. Of course, you're still supposed to sympathize with him because he's trying to get onto one of the Network's sadistic game shows in order to make money so that his [[LittlestCancerPatient sick infant daughter]] can get decent medical care. He eventually gets better after meeting a few black people who consistently help him despite the price on his head.
** ''The Running Man'' is a dystopian future novel, though, and it's unclear where that timeline diverged from the real world. 'Negro' is more understandable when seen alongside other deliberately archaic terms and references like 'atomic' in place of 'nuclear;' also, Ben's only use of the word 'nigger' was part of the phrase 'house nigger,' which has a different meaning than just calling someone a nigger. A 'house Negro' is one who lives and works indoors alongside the master, in contrast to the 'field Negro' who works outdoors and has no chance at any of the comforts that the house Negro has. Thus, house Negroes are loyal to their master because, if sold, they stand a good chance of being field Negroes under the new master; they are presented as traitors and dupes who allowed themselves to be turned against their brothers in the field in exchange for literal table scraps. ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_Negro The Other Wiki]]'', as always, has plenty more information on this.
** However, it is still racist because, as The Other Wiki states, the term is pejorative and originated from slavery.
* Literature/SisterhoodSeries by Creator/FernMichaels: Oh, man. Books like ''Weekend Warriors'' and ''Vendetta'' show that a number of the Vigilantes are very anti-Asian. Kathryn went into a rant at Yoko Akio about how she's using the fact that she's Asian and different as an excuse to be wishy-washy. Yoko is not wishy-washy. One of their targets is a man named John Chai, who they keep calling "Chinese boy". They don't call him anything worse than that, but the fact that the book he's in blatantly uses YellowPeril to justify putting him in the role of the villain implies that the Vigilantes are very anti-Asian, despite the fact that one of their members is Asian herself! Later on, the Vigilantes pretty much indicate that they are {{Straw Feminist}}s and misandristic, which male readers will ''not'' appreciate!
* The eponomyous ''Literature/SpaceCaptainSmith'' is essentially a Victorian [[{{Adventure}} adventure fiction]] hero transplanted into a sci-fi setting. As such, he is undeniably a bigot and casually sexist, but in an old-fashioned, non-malicious, "Jolly good sort, for a foreigner"/"This is no place for a lady" kind of way. He is portrayed as a genuinely good, brave and heroic person who treats everyone around him decently regardless of race, gender or species, but also as slightly dim and with some ingrained opinions that his friends quietly roll their eyes at.
** It helps that Smith's mildly condescending attitudes are contrasted with the truly vicious racism and misogyny expressed by the villains, which he finds either repugnant, or so illogical that he can't understand them. For instance, he genuinely doesn't get why anyone would object to an interracial marriage.
** The [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire British Space Empire]] as a whole could be considered this. They're openly imperialist, enthusiastic practitioners of GunboatDiplomacy, and have a very "civilising the natives" attitude to dealing with aliens. However, they usually mean well and are trying to help, providing education and infrastructure to all conquered worlds, and installing democracy (on their terms). Again this is contrasted with the bad guys, who typically enslave or just massacre subject races.
* In ''Literature/TreasureIsland'', supporting hero Squire Trelawney makes an offhand comment that the reason Long John Silver wants to take a sea voyage is because his wife is black. This is one of many instances in the early chapters setting up the squire as something of a shortsighted fool.
* John Rumford, protagonist of ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' fits this to a T. Then, the entire book is a TakeThat to all forms of liberalism and multiculturalism. He firmly believes a woman's place is in the kitchen, Puerto Ricans are in no way American, and Blacks riot every summer because they want free fried chicken and watermelon.
* In ''Literature/VillainsCode'', Whitest Knight wears a suit of PoweredArmor shaped like a Klansman's outfit. When not fighting crime, he passes out racist pamphlets to people. The Alliance of Heroic Champions is embarrassed and disgusted to have him as a member, but they don't have grounds to kick him out, as he pays the dues and follows the rules. During the climactic battle, he's pounced by a dozen criminal metas and is only saved thanks to [[spoiler:Lodestar]], who immediately knocks him out with a poke to the temple.
--> '''[[spoiler:Lodestar]]:''' ''Whoops'', guess I didn't notice you were on our side. That sort of thing happens when you insist on dressing like a racist di-, um, jerk.
** There also used to be a 50's SuperTeam called the League of Metas. When Beverly's grandfather (black) found a magical artifact that granted him powers, he went to the League to request membership in order to fight crime. The League (all white) told him they didn't have a place for him but that they were working on a "Colored Division". He told them where to stick it. They said fine, but they'd be keeping the artifact for someone more "worthy". According to Beverely, her grandfather was never the same after that.
* [[PrivateDetective Eddie Valiant]] from ''Literature/WhoCensoredRogerRabbit'' (the book that inspired [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit the similarly-named film]]) starts out as a shameless [[FantasticRacism fantastic racist]], thinking of the Toons as second-class citizens incapable of behaving with dignity or even of feeling the same emotions as humans. Throughout the course of his adventures, however, he learns to chill out and treat everyone's needs equally, eventually understanding that though they're fundamentally different in many ways, Toons are people too. He never stops being a bitter DeadpanSnarker, though.
* The protagonist of ''Literature/IAmJ'' is a Puerto Rican-Jewish teenager who is also transgender. He has some demeaning views towards gay people, in part because of his own hatred of being called a ButchLesbian. J has to learn to overcome these issues when he transfers into a school aimed at queer teens.
* In Creator/TomKratman's "Literature/{{Okuyyuki}}", [[HeteronormativeCrusader Audrey]] jokes about cutting the unit's "queer-as-a-five-gram-''[[GratuitousJapanese wadokaichin]]'' first sergeant" to pieces. [[KnightInSourArmor Reilly]] doesn't appear very upset with her for this, his answer being along the lines of, "Don't tempt me."

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Perhaps the Ur example for television (at least in the US) is Archie Bunker from ''Series/AllInTheFamily''. Racist, sexist, the whole nine yards. The only reason the show got away with it was because Archie was [[TroubledSympatheticBigot portrayed as an idiot for having these views]].
* The titular character of ''Series/{{House}}'' says some pretty sexist things, but then he is pretty much [[DeadpanSnarker an equal-opportunity insult-slinger]]. (Not that such a thing always stops complaints.)
-->'''Cuddy''' (evaluating House) Your attitude towards supervisory personnel is disrespectful, and a disturbingly large proportion of your comments are racist or sexist.
-->'''House''': [[IResembleThatRemark That top makes you look like an Afghani prostitute]]...[{{beat}}]...would be an example of that.
* DCI Gene Hunt from ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'' and ''Series/AshesToAshes'' is a particularly good example. (Heavily lampshade-hung in the Season 1 finale of [=A2A=], when Alex tells Gene there's a ''sizeable'' percentage of otherwise intelligent twenty-first-century women who'd be perfectly happy to sleep with him.)
-->'''Gene Hunt:''' Now. Yesterday's shooting. The dealers are all so scared we're more likely to get Helen Keller to talk. The Paki in a coma's about as lively as Liberace's dick when he's looking at a naked woman, all in all this investigation's going at the speed of a spastic in a magnet factory.
-->''Sam Tyler, shocked, drops the radio he is holding.''
-->'''Gene Hunt:''' What?
-->'''Sam Tyler:''' Think you might have missed out the Jews.
* The Todd in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' constantly sexually harasses the female staff at Sacred Heart, and says many sexist and derogatory things....yet remains one of the most popular side characters, second only to the AlmightyJanitor.
** The Todd is loved not in spite of his sexism as per this trope, but due to it being taken to [[RefugeInAudacity absurd and frightening]] levels. Plus later he starts [[AnythingThatMoves going after men too]]. Why? Because he is THE TODD.
** Dr Cox also qualifies due to his frequently berating his subordinates and giving them insulting nicknames, also Turk is visibly uncomfortable around gay people and can barely talk to them.
* Arguably, Dr. Christian Troy from ''Series/NipTuck'': pathologically oversexed, determinedly shallow, given to anything from sexual harassment on up to psychological warfare as seduction tactics (see, for example, the scene in the ''pilot'' where he strips his latest conquest naked, stands her in front of a full-length mirror, and uses a red lipstick to indicate flaws he finds surgically improvable), and an overwhelming fan favorite. Possibly because of the hotness, possibly because of the tragic backstory, possibly because he's the only major character who isn't an insufferable hypocrite.
* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'':
** Gibbs. Ari killed one of his female agents precisely because Gibbs would be more upset about it than if he'd lost a male subordinate. He shows little respect for his female boss (unlike her male predecessor), and it's suggested that he has trouble taking orders from a woman.
** Mike Franks, Gibbs' mentor, fits this trope even better. His sexist views are FAR more blatant. When he found out Jenny Shepard was the director of NCIS, he laughed at her since she was a woman.
* Dennis Duffy on ''Series/ThirtyRock''. He's a sexist, homophobic, racist lout who calls Liz "Dummy" and embarrasses her in public. Oh, and did we mention he happens to be an Internet predator? (He was apparently later exonerated.) Well, Liz sporadically dates him and some fans seem to like {{shipping}} them together. Witness a break-up speech he delivered:
-->"Dear Liz Lemon, Though other women have bigger boobs than you, no women has as big a heart and when I saw you getting ready to go out and get nailed by a bunch of guys last night, I knew for sure it was over between us and, for the first time since the '86 World Series, I cried. I cried like a big dumb homo. And if it were up to me, we'd be together forever, but there's this new thing called 'Women's Liberation' which gives you women the right to choose and you have chosen to abort me and that I must live with."
** And Jack Donaghy on the same show. ''Only'' Creator/AlecBaldwin could get away with the line "I like a woman with ambition; it's like seeing a dog wearing clothes".
** Liz herself has some racist tendencies, but continues to be loved.
* Matt Dowd on ''Series/EliStone''.
* Barney on ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', as per his role as TheCasanova, tends to treat women like objects, but has enough [[MagnificentBastard style]] and goes [[RefugeInAudacity far enough over the top]] that people still love him.
** He also has enough genuinely decent moments to keep him firmly in the JerkWithAHeartOfGold territory.
-->'''Barney:''' At one point, I'm pretty sure I sold a woman. I didn't speak the language, but I shook a guy's hand, he gave me the keys to a Mercedes, and I left her there.
* Chief O'Brien on ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' and ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' was a (somewhat) Licensed [[FantasticRacism Fantastic Racist]] against the alien Cardassians. In one of the few ''Next Generation'' episodes that gave him a prominent role, he explained his excuse for this -- during a war with the Cardassians he had to kill another person for the first time (in self-defence), and hated himself for doing so. Of course he still got a lot of flak for his racism, especially in a much later episode of ''Deep Space Nine'' when he showed a lot of dislike for a young and innocent Cardassian child (though he got better over time). Nonetheless, he was generally a very likeable and sympathetic character.
** Kira follows a similar, more dramatic character arc. While everybody--including herself--has no problems calling her a terrorist, her absolute hatred of all military Cardassians was pretty justified, since she spent her entire life fighting against their horrifically brutal occupation of her planet. Over the course of the series, she came to accept that not all Cardassians are evil, and even began to sympathize with them when ''their'' planet is occupied.
** To make this understandable, it should be noted that the Cardassians as a species are not very far from AlwaysChaoticEvil. Their [[ThoseWackyNazis regime is horrible]], and most Cardassian characters are representatives of that regime in one way or another (though we do meet some genuinely noble ones...[[AndZoidberg and]] [[AntiHero Garak]]).
** Commander [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Worf]] is openly racist toward Romulans, to the point that simply admitting that Romulans fought honorably in their failed GunshipRescue is treated as legitimate character growth in ''Film/StarTrekNemesis''. JustifiedTrope in his case as he was essentially orphaned by a Romulan sneak attack as a child.
*** Worf once refused to donate blood to a critically wounded Romulan, [[spoiler: resulting in his [[WhatTheHellHero death.]]]] He's also portrayed as quick to resort to violence and slightly sexist in a "Women are delicate and need protection" sort of way. A quickness to resort to violence is, admittedly, a [[ProudWarriorRace recognized trait of Klingons as a species]], but the mild sexism is a little hard to place, given Klingon culture ''expects'' women to be rather aggressive themselves (courtship traditionally, as Worf comments, consists of the male reciting poetry and ducking whatever heavy objects the female feels like throwing at him, while females are aggressive enough during sex that bruises, gashes and even ''broken bones'' are to be expected -- it's considered a sign of good luck if a newly wed wife breaks her husband's collar bone on their wedding night). Then again, he laughed at the idea of dating human women since they would be "too fragile" so maybe his sexism just extends to human women.
** In ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', Spock frequently expressed his displeasure when Kirk told him something along the line that he was "becoming more human every day". Spock frequently referred to "annoying human emotions". In TOS, he clearly preferred not to be reminded that he was half human.
** Dr. [=McCoy=] was something of a NobleBigot, while Kirk harbored a lot of anti-Klingon racism.
** In his first appearance in ''The Original Series'', Kor was a PoliticallyIncorrectVillain, an imperialist occupier of a [[spoiler:seemingly]] less developed planet with a clear sense of cultural superiority to the natives. In ''Deep Space Nine'' he returned as a BoisterousBruiser OldMaster and friend of Dax, now on the side of the protagonists, but he was later revealed to be an open classist, believing the Emperor should reign supreme, and that those of common birth (including [[FourStarBadass Martok]]) were unsuitable for officers ranks.
** [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Janeway]] states in the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''[=/=]''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' {{crossover}} episode "Flashback" that [[Characters/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Kirk, Sulu, and the rest of the TOS gang]] would fit the bill by 24th Century standards.
-->"Space must have seemed a whole lot bigger back then. It's not surprising they had to bend the rules a little. They were a little slower to invoke the Prime Directive, and a little quicker to pull their phasers. Of course, the whole bunch of them would be booted out of Starfleet today. But I have to admit, I would have loved to ride shotgun at least once with a group of officers like that."
* A rare female reference from ''Series/DoctorWho'': In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E9TheFamilyOfBlood The Family of Blood]]", love-interest Joan Redfern explains at length why Martha cannot possibly be a doctor. Martha's response may well constitute a CrowningMomentOfAwesome. In her defence, Joan Redfern lives in 1913, when women practicing medicine as doctors in British society was a rarity and genuinely ''was'' thought to be impossible by many people, let alone ''black'' women doctors...
** Lampshaded in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E2TheShakespeareCode The Shakespeare Code]]", when Shakespeare becomes smitten with Martha. She is initially offended by him calling her an Ethiopian and such things, until she realizes that he's trying to compliment her. The Doctor comments on all of this with "It's political correctness gone mad!"
** Several male Classic ''Series/DoctorWho'' companions also were, despite being wholly loveable, repeatedly portrayed as sexist as a motif - Ben, Jamie and Harry. Jamie has the excuse that he's from the 16th Century - for the most part he treats women equally except when he remembers he's supposed to be [[StayInTheKitchen chivalrous]] and accidentally causes offence, even with Victorian or 1914 women. Ben and Harry were both contemporary but came from sexist backgrounds on drastically opposite ends of the class spectrum (working class military and upper class public school respectively), and both were sexist to help them better serve as foils for independent 'modern woman' companions (Polly and Sarah Jane).
* Douglas Reynholm in ''Series/TheITCrowd'' plays this for laughs.
* Buz Murdock of ''Series/{{Route 66}}'' is a Licensed Sexist, and made at least two cringe-inducing speeches about a woman's place as helper and subordinate to her man during the show's run. He's the lead character and portrayed sympathetically: the women ''agree'' more often than not, and see the "error" of their ways! His view of relations between the sexes is, arguably, a bit of AuthorAppeal.
* A recurring character in Series 3 of ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' is Captain Todger, a superhero with an outdated, Bernard Manning sense of humour, whose emblem is a crude drawing of a penis.
--> '''Mayor:''' He'll never [[KneelBeforeZod kneel]], because he is our greatest hero, and has saved humanity countless times!
--> '''General Drayfox:''' ''(an incredibly PC supervillain)'' THEN WHERE IS HE?!
--> '''Mayor:'''...Well, at the moment, he's in prison for statutory rape.
--> '''General Drayfox:''' What? RAPE?
--> '''Mayor:''' Statutory rape! It was an accident, she was wearing makeup!
--> '''Drayfox:''' Uh - I really don't think that's any excuse!
* ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' gave us AlBundy and played it for laughs. Al was by no means a racist (he even had at least one close friend who was African-American), but he did [[AcceptableEthnicTargets have contempt for some white ethnicities]] (hating the French, for instance). He was always quick to ogle beautiful women (which, really, makes him [[AllMenArePerverts no different from most other men throughout history]]), mock his obnoxious customers for their weight, pick fights with the feminist-minded Marcy and generally say whatever was on his mind no matter who would be offended. Al even founded NO MA'AM ([[FunWithAcronyms National Organization of Men Against Amazonian Masterhood]]). In one episode, he returns from a quest with a series of commandmants - "Rules for hard-working people, who don't give a rat's ass about political correctness!" (To tell the truth, [[StrawFeminist Marcy really wasn't much better than Al.]] In fact, the show seems to have almost no characters with outstanding redeeming features at all, which is kind of the point.)
* ''Series/TheCloser'' establishes that Lieutenant Provenza is this with just one word: "''Again?''" [[note]]Upon being told that if he continued to refer to the dead victim as a "lesbo", Chief Johnson would send him off for a two-week sensitivity seminar.[[/note]] Having said that, to Provenza a murder victim is a murder victim, regardless of his feelings on the matter.
** Also, at the crime scene of a murdered gay man, Provenza quips that everyone should double up on their rubber gloves, as it's a "homo-cide."
* Ari Gold, agent of Vincent Chase in ''Series/{{Entourage}}'' repeatedly calls his openly gay assistant Lloyd various gay slurs, sometimes for laughs, sometimes because he is extremely angry. He also sexually harasses women in and outside the workplace on a regular basis.
* Mrs. Cooper, Sheldon's mother, on ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' seems to be a genuinely nice person whose {{innocent bigot}}ry appears to be from ValuesDissonance. She calls Catholics "Rosary Rattlers" and constantly asks Raj if something she cooks might be "one of the animals you people think is magic." When Leonard tries to correct her, she asks, "How do you people talk to one another?"
** Her son Sheldon Cooper also has shades of this, making several disparaging comments about Raj/Priya, and their country and religion. He also frequently makes comments of a sexist nature, which he appears to have gotten from his father- which actually results in a trip to human resources after he shows his assistant photos of diseased genitalia in an attempt to "lead her away from a life of promiscuity".
*** Judging from [[Creator/LeVarBurton LeVar Burton's]] reaction, Sheldon shows him a video where he portrays George Washington Carver in BlackFace.
* Mike Logan of ''Franchise/LawAndOrder''. a JerkAss borderline CowboyCop who openly disrespected his new female lieutenant, Anita Van Buren[[note]]Once. She made it clear that if he tried that again, he'd regret it. He eventually came around[[/note]]. His time in [[ReassignedToAntarctica Staten Island]] must have beaten some maturity into him, because by the time he joins the [[Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent Criminal Intent]] cast, he's merely a SnarkKnight.
* ''Series/StargateSG1'': Jaffa society is historically quite sexist and while the Jaffa allied with the SGC are generally better at this, there are still some examples. When Bra'tac first meets [=SG1=], he dismisses Carter due to her gender. Even Teal'c, who has fought side-by-side with Carter for several years, is surprised when they find the all-female Hak'tyl and their leader Ishta is able to best him in a fight.
* [[Series/SummerHeightsHigh Ja'mie King]] frequently shows prejudice against Asians, lesbians, fat girls and anyone who doesn't have rich parents. The only group of people she shows any kindness to are Africans and it's implied that's only for novelty purposes.
* ''Series/{{NTSFSDSUV}}'': In one episode the team is assisted by Agent Booth Whitman, a hard-ass veteran CowboyCop with very old-fashioned attitudes. He arrested the 'bad guy', a NewAgeRetroHippie from the 1960s, for trying to give black people the vote. He also tried to stop women from enlisting in the NTSF. Trent Hauser--a not very dissimilar CowboyCop--just plain idolizes him, while Piper at first objects to his presence before she starts to like the attention he gives her. Deconstructed when he finds himself so at odds with the way the world has changed that he briefly sinks into depression before it's reconstructed when Piper convinces him that they desperately need men like him in a confused world.
* ''Series/{{Inhumans}}'' features Attilan's royal family, all of whom (with the exception of [[AntiVillain Maximus]]) are complicit in enforcing a FantasticCasteSystem which essentially consigns those without powers, or with unimpressive powers, to a life of slavery.
* Obligatory ''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]]'' example where even among the likes of Spike Warren or Angelus none could hold a candle to Cordelia, who began the series as a PoliticallyIncorrectVillain on anyone not up to her impossible standards. When moving to [[Series/{{Angel}} LA]] she gained the heroic part but still would not let up the slurs and barbs.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Quite a few wrestlers with the AllAmericanFace gimmick have shown contempt toward the foreign (usually communist or generally anti-American) heels, on some occasions even [[InTheBack attacking them from behind]] and getting cheered for it. It helps that the foreigners are [[KickTheSonOfABitch portrayed as obnoxiously as possible]], as does the fact that certain baby face wrestlers [[SociopathicHero have an edgy, antisocial streak toward people in general]] (Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin, for instance).
* [[Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam Charlie Haas]] was portrayed as being somewhat homophobic on WWE Smackdown. ''Somewhat'' because GorgeousGeorge Wrestling/RicoConstantino was openly harassing him, and then Haas and Rico were made into a tag team, despite the fact Haas was obviously uncomfortable with it and it was portrayed as a good thing when Haas became a little enthusiastic about teaming with Rico.
* On Caged Heat Radio's ''Reality Check'', Jorge Alonso presented Bruce Santee has his good friend, only for it to soon be revealed Santee [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9jrZ0y6J5U didn't know Jorge from George]].

* Big Wayne from ''[[Radio/GTARadio The Lazlow Show]]'' is generally the comedic center of the show, but he is horrifically pick-one-ist, and an entire section of the show involves him discussing his terrible exploits with women.

[[folder: Roleplay]]
* ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG'':
** Trigger, who admittedly drew some inspiration from Jack Crow. Of memorable note was his openly criticizing Hotwire and Rex for continuuing to fight despite losing their leg and being unable to walk, respectively (although he ''did'' at least try to justify this by pointing out the impracticality of putting a wheelchair-bound agent in a combat role ''on a tropical island''- usually a very wheelchair-unfriendly environment).
** Soldier acted as a more comedic version- he's extremely sexist, but has a tendency to make insulting remarks about women in front of Maria, a ''very'' active feminist.
** Additionally, Agent Andrew "Pyro" Jackson was eventually revealed to be extremely homophobic, to the point where he disowned ''his own daughter''.
* ''Roleplay/DarwinsSoldier'':
** [[FunnyAnimal Gustave]] [[TheBigGuy Chiumbo]] is openly [[FantasticRacism speciesist]] against mammals.
** [[SnakePeople Specialist Crota]] has his moments too.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Just about everyone in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' is horribly prejudiced against everyone else, [[BlackAndGreyMorality hero or otherwise]]. Of course, being the CrapsackWorld that the 41st millennium is, bigotry is basically required not only to survive, but to avoid a horrible FateWorseThanDeath that will last for all eternity.
** The Imperium of Man's official state policy espouses [[AbsoluteXenophobe Absolute Xenophobia]], and the only reason they haven't completely genocided every alien race in the galaxy is because humanity is already struggling enough just to survive. Mutants have it only slightly better, since the Imperium needs psykers in order to continue functioning, but those who haven't been sanctioned as Imperial servants are fair game. Justified since a rogue psyker is vulnerable to [[DemonicPossession daemonic possession]] and can lead to tens of billions of people getting their souls swallowed.
** The Eldar view themselves as the superior species and look down on everybody else. In fact, they will gleefully cause the deaths of billions of another species just to save a handful of their own, though that's {{justified}} in that Eldar are a DyingRace and the only ones [[FateWorseThanDeath whose souls will become the playthings of a Chaos God of hedonism after death]].
** The Tau Empire are ''slightly'' better about this, but only just. While their doctrine encourages peaceful co-existence between different species, in practice their society is rigidly segregated (necessarily so, as the Tau race has used selective breeding for millennia to maintain a FantasticCasteSystem), even their most trusted and long-serving client race, the Kroot, are alternately romanticized as {{Noble Savage}}s and disdained as a barbaric CannibalTribe (which is pretty understandable, considering their society revolves around finding new and interesting enemies to eat) and worst of all races that resist being subsumed into the Empire face draconian population control and re-education methods at best and outright genocide at worst if they lose. ''40k'' being what it is, they're still the friendliest faction in the setting by a country mile, though.
* In the ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' campaign setting, Dr. Rudolph Van Richten, the realm's foremost monster hunting expert, hated the Vistani for most of his career, but [[FreudianExcuse it was hard to blame him]]; the reason he became a vampire hunter initially was because a Vistani tribe kidnapped his son and sold him to a vampire. Years later, he found out that his hatred - and the revenge he had inflicted on that tribe in his anger - had terrible repercussions; a curse inflicted upon him by the sole survivor had made him a DoomMagnet, the reason all his allies in his years fighting the dark creatures of the Land of Mists had suffered terrible deaths in the process. He eventually made amends with that survivor (who himself was cursed) and lifted the curses on both of them, as detailed in his final work, ''Van Richten's Guide to the Vistani''.[[note]]Not counting ''Van Richten's Guide to Witches'', which was actually written previously, but published posthumously by his nieces after his death.[[/note]]
* Taken UpToEleven by ''TabletopGame/RacialHolyWar'' in which players are ''supposed'' to be violent white supremacists. It's the ''hero'' part which is... quesitonable.

* ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof'' is set before women's lib caught on in the Ukrainian hinterland. Tevye is, undeniably, a big ol' chauvinist, but he's the nicest incarnation of it that you'll find. [[spoiler: Then PlayedForDrama when he can't bring himself to accept the idea of his youngest daughter marrying a gentile. He can only respond to it by shutting her out of his life, even though he knows all it will do it hurt himself, his daughter, and his family.]]
* The former basketball players and especially the coach in ''Theatre/ThatChampionshipSeason'', though flawed heroes at best, frequently use racial slurs when referring to Afro-Caribbean people, Latin Americans, and Jews.
* ''Theatre/KingLear'' has a very hateful and demeaning view of women. Of course, "political correctness" wasn't a thing in Lear's or Shakespeare's day, though other characters do still espouse somewhat more enlightened views.
-->'''Lear''': The fitchew, nor the soiled horse, goes to ’t with a more riotous appetite. Down from the waist they are centaurs, though women all above. But to the girdle do the gods inherit; beneath is all the fiends'.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* [[Franchise/MassEffect Renegade Shepard]] can be quite racist. Some of the squad members edge into NobleBigot territory: Ashley believes humans should be able to stand on their own, and is hesitant about placing too much trust in allies from other species, while Garrus can be pretty insensitive in his conversations with Wrex and Tali (he wises up).
** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', one of the artifacts at the original Normandy crash site is the personal journal of the deceased X.O. Presley. Over the three pages that survive, his attitude shifts from one of blatant [[FantasticRacism xenophobia]] to grudging acceptance to complete trust in his alien fellow crew members as well as shame over his old attitude displayed on the first page.
** Ashley however shifts into an [[AvertedTrope Averted Trope]] as you can question her over her attitude where she quickly clarifies she has no issues with aliens personally. She is also hostile to an [[FantasticRacism anti-alien human protest]] on the Citadel if you bring her and she argues angrily with the spokesperon and says he's just racist and trying to hide it behind weak political views. Ashely's attitude is more along the lines of 'I don't think we should let other species poke around unsupervised on our most advanced spacecraft' and while she ''does'' think humanity should be able to stand on its own, she also thinks when push comes to shove the Citadel races will save their own asses over humanity- and in[[spoiler: [[MassEffect3 Mass Effect 3]] her thoughts are completely validated as [[AliensAreBastards all the Citadel species refuse to aid Earth]] when its under attack by the Reapers, claiming that while humanity is being exterminated it gives them breathing room to prepare.]]
* ''VideoGame/DukeNukem'' is the embodiment of this trope PlayedForLaughs. He's a hyper-masculine tough guy who hates aliens, loves beer and strippers, and doesn't give a rat's ass about political correctness.
* Wakka from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' spends the first half of the game being quite racist towards the machina using Al Bhed people due to his religious beliefs that [[ScienceIsBad forbid the using of machina]]. This ends up biting him slightly in the butt when Rikku, an Al Bhed girl, joins the party; once he discovers her identity as one of them he's at first outraged to have been "traveling with a heathen" but over the rest of the game's course, he learns to let go of his prejudice especially once he realizes that his religion was a fraud and learns that Yuna is actually half-Al Bhed.
* Jill from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance'' starts out as one, but she develops out of it over the course of the game.
* Jonatham Ingram in ''VisualNovel/{{Policenauts}}'' comes across as one of these in the fan translation, due to casually using the word 'faggot' and calling [[GenderBender biovestites]] 'so-called "women"'. The heroes are all rather bigoted towards the Frozeners (genetically-altered humans with paper-white skin and unblinking eyes), and it is not really challenged.
* ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity'' is a world full of racism, classism, ethnic cleansing and religious intolerance. And yet hands down the most racist person in the game isn't a villain, but party member Durance. He pretty much HatesEveryoneEqually, but is especially bigoted towards Orlans and Eothasians.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Some protagonists of ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'' are clearly evil, but still portrayed as heroic.
* Lampshaded in the webcomic ''[[http://www.beevnicks.com The Beevnicks]]'', where paterfamilias Tom Beevnick, a constant horndog, literally won a lawsuit to allow him masturbation breaks at work (presumably to reduce his constant sexual harassment of his female coworkers).
* In ''Webcomic/WhenSheWasBad'', one of the reasons VillainProtagonist Gail Swanson thinks TheChosenOne Amber Price isn't as heroic as everyone proclaims her to be is because Amber is homophobic and bullied Gail in high school for being gay.
* ActionGirl Grim-Eyes in ''Webcomic/{{Digger}}'' is from a LadyLand society where men are the traditionally 'weak' gender and treats males of any species like her own. This leads to a lot of PlayedForLaughs condescension towards [[NatureHero Herne]] because she thinks it is adorable how he "tries to act tough".
* The protagonist of ''Webcomic/WelcomeToRoom305'' starts out incredibly homophobic. With help from his gay roommate he learns to be more tolerant, but is still homophobic.
* The male heroes of ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' ogle Haley when she has a wardrobe malfunction. Roy also behaves sexist towards Miko, but eventually gets better.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* PlayedForLaughs in ''WebVideo/SupernaturalTheAnimationAbridged'' where both Sam and Dean are sexist and homophobic.
-->'''Sam:''' "What the fuck is wrong with you!"
-->'''Woman:''' "I don't know any better."
-->'''Dean:''' "It's true, she is a woman."
* Shadi from ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries,'' who is basically an {{Expy}} of ''Film/{{Borat}}''.
* ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory'': Creator/ClintEastwood uses a lot of anti-Asian jokes in his rap battle against Creator/BruceLee, such as saying he can [[ClintSquint squint]] better than Bruce and that he should be working in a sweatshop.
* TabletopGame/NewVindicators has Bulwark, who is only politically incorrect in the way that he makes fun of everyone, but isn't actually biased against any group. Miss Mist plays it straighter by having a problem with homosexuals-which causes drama as her eldest son is gay.
* ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' has Omega Zell, its personnal StrawMisogynist, which puts him at odds with Gaea, one of his female guildmates (the two others are respectively too laid back to react and too close to his idea of female gamer to actually challenge his statements). His situation with Gaea is however best summed up in a Season 4 line in the webseries: "So you want me to respect a woman [[ManipulativeBastard with no morals who spends her time scamming other people?]]" (and there is ''no'' exaggeration in this statement). He's also the ButtMonkey and his dream guild's recruiter happens to be female.
* The main character of ''WebVideo/DeagleNation'', Jace Connors, is this in ways that are both on purpose and on accident.
* Captain Hammer is a Politically Incorrect Superhero in ''DrHorriblesSingAlongBlog'', which is fitting, since he's actually the antagonist of the story.
* Most of the Mane Six in ''WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft'' are some degree of this. FantasticRacism or even real-world racism (Pinkie is Romani and gets flak for it) is common. The ExcusePlot to the adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/EquestriaGirls'' starts when Celestia wants the newly coronated Twilight out of the way after she starts a political crisis. Twilight (who has heavy shades of being a VillainProtagonist) acted incredibly speciest towards centaur ambassadors by putting on a very offensive ''five hour'' puppet show and stealing their crown. All Celestia had asked her in the first place was to greet them.
* Subverted with Devil Boner in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, as he starts out acting like political correctness is a bad thing, but ends up ripping into misogynists in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' because they're ''just''. ''so''. ''annoying''.
* Weiss from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is prejudiced against [[LittleBitBeastly Faunus]], though she makes a conscious effort to shed that uglier part of her personality for the sake of her teammate Blake starting at the end of the first volume.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ElenaOfAvalor'': Esteban gives off this vibe in "Finders Leapers," openly telling Naomi to her face that he views himself as better and more qualified than her, despite Naomi being on the grand council, because he's a royal and she's just a commoner with no honors or degrees. It's to this end that Esteban is [[IgnorantOfTheirOwnIgnorance ignorant of his own ignorance]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'':
** Subverted with Zapp Brannigan, who is perceived in-world as a MagnificentBastard, but to the main characters and the audience is just a TooDumbToLive JerkAss in velour. In one episode, it is revealed that women are no longer allowed to serve in the military, not because of some societal prejudice, but to prevent his constant sexual harassment.
-->"Alas, after a series of deadly blunders caused by distracting low-cut fatigues and lots of harmless pinching, the army decided women weren't fit for service. Not when I'm in charge."
** The Professor has a hint of this. When Fry thought he was a robot:
--> '''Leela:''' "I'm going to remind him he's human the way only a woman can."
--> '''Farnsworth:''' "You're going to do his laundry?"
** When stuck at Roswell in 1947, Leela and the Professor dressed in hilariously stereotyped clothes go to an appliance store to acquire a microwave oven, not realizing they aren't invented yet. While the salesman ignoring Leela and focusing his pitch to her "husband" could be somewhat handwaved as the sexism prevalent to that era, the Professor gleefully partaking in the jokes certainly wasn't excusable, as Leela reminds him by [[LaserGuidedKarma setting his tie on fire with an oven]].
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** Pakku held sexist values for most of his life. When he was a teenager, his bigotry caused his fiancée Kanna [[note]]Katara's future grandmother[[/note]] to leave him. After realizing this as an old man, he realizing that his ideas were wrong and starts to see women as equals. (For example, he trains Katara in combat waterbending, even though traditionally, female waterbenders are only allowed to use their powers for healing.) He even meets up with Kanna again, and after she realizes that he's changed, Kanna marries him, making him the step-grandfather of Sokka and Katara.
** Sokka is a bit sexist for the first few episodes, believing that women should StayInTheKitchen and out of the fighting. Which is somewhat justified as his father, the chieftain, left him behind with the women and children when all the other men went to war. To comfort him, he told him that it wasn't because he was too young but because someone would have to stay and protect the village and he should be honored to be entrusted with this important duty. After getting to know a group of female warriors who have actual training and experience as soldiers and are much more skilled than him, he starts to adjust his views, though it still takes some time to completely get over his prejudices.
* Stan from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', assuming he can be called a hero (he has better morals than Peter Griffin but worse ones than Homer Simpson) is a bigot in ''many'' ways. His hatred of gays came to a head in the notorious episode where he ''kidnaps'' the children of ''two'' gay couples. (WordOfGod claims the episode was to teach him a lesson, but it wasn't handled very well at all.)
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' the Titans team up with alien super hero named Val-Yor at first he was a nice guy to the Titans, but later he shows [[FantasticRacism deliberate prejudice]] against Starfire, as he has some hatred towards Tamaraneans, and berates her for almost every move she makes. He also calls her [[FantasticSlurs "troq"]] which means "nothing". (In fact, calling Val-Yor a "hero" at all might be a stretch, only qualifying because he fights creatures that are worse; he says something at the end that he claims is an apology, but only by the loosest possible definition.)
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': Peter Griffin originally started out as ignorant towards non-whites, women, and other cultures before upgrading into a [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain politically incorrect]] VillainProtagonist.
* In ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'', Omi is a minor example at first, doubting that Kimiko is capable of handling herself because of her gender. He changes in a big way after she wins a Showdown against Jack (and loses a bet with Raimundo as a result of it.)
* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'':
** [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Cotton Hill]], if he can even be called a hero [[DependingOnTheWriter (depends on the writer)]] is a racist, sexist military veteran with a grudge against Japan due to the loss of his shins while facing them in the Pacific Theater during World War II. He gets [[CharacterDevelopment somewhat better]] over the course of the show, which also reveals that [[spoiler:[[FlorenceNightingaleEffect he was in love with the Japanese nurse]] who cared for him after the war]].
** For the first few seasons, Hank Hill was very sexist towards women who were anything but housewives. The moment his wife Peggy considers departing from her teaching career in order to catch up on her housewife activity, Hank ''immediately'' jumps on board with the idea so he can have her the way he wants her. However, the main story of the show is basically about Hank [[CharacterDevelopment outgrowing this trope]].
* This was the entire point of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E15HomersPhobia Homer's Phobia]]". Homer was incredibly homophobic, which was shown after he met John, but did mellow a bit after John saved his life. John summed it up rather well at the end:
-->'''John:''' Well, Homer, I won your respect, and all I had to do was save your life. Now, if every gay man could just do the same, you'd be set.
** In the much later episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS16E10TheresSomethingAboutMarrying There's Something About Marrying]]", he was, unlike Reverend Lovejoy, perfectly willing to perform gay weddings, although he primarily did it for money. Also, while estranged from Marge, he was comfortable living with a homosexual couple in Springfield's Gay Village, although it was the only decent living space he could find.
** Homer also has a "forgive my intolerance" banner that he finds a good investment.
** Home straddles the line between this and InnocentBigot. He often comes across as culturally insensitive but he's very rarely malicious, and he will apologise if he realises that he's offended someone. The few times he has been genuinely hateful, such as towards a muslim family or undocumented immigrants, he is usually whipped up by his equally ignorant friends, or occasionally manipulated by the media or politicians.
* The Streak, an {{expy}} of [[Franchise/TheFlash Jay Garrick]] in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' makes a [[YouAreACreditToYourRace vaguely racist remark]] towards John Stewart. The Justice Guild, stand-ins for the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica ([[DeliberateValuesDissonance circa the 1950s]]), also displays a StayInTheKitchen attitude towards ComicBook/BlackCanary stand-in, Black Siren.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'':
** Sterling has made a lot of racist and/or sexist comments over the course of the series, most notably in "Skytanic" where he automatically assumes that a man in a turban with a beard must be the bomber and calls him "Beardsly [=McTurbanhead=]". When Malory informs him that the man is a Sikh, Archer tells her "Oh, so just because he's not Muslim he gets a free pass? [[HypocriticalHumor That's called profiling, mother!]]"
** Malory herself hates the Irish and isn't afraid to show it, and has also made a lot of offensive comments about black people, homosexuals, and the Japanese.
** Double subverted in "The Figgis Agency". Everyone gets uncomfortable when Cheryl says it's safe to assume Ben Shapiro "doesn't eat shellfish" (because he's allergic).
-->'''Archer''': Just because he's a big Hollywood lawyer does not make him Jewish!\\
'''Cheryl''': Ewww, he's Jewish?
* ''WesternAnimation/FIsForFamily'': Frank Murphy is an open misogynist who intentionally sabotages his wife's attempt to hold a part-time job and scoffs at the idea of his daughter becoming an astronaut. Then again, given how the series is set in the 70s, [[DeliberateValuesDissonance Frank's bigotry is likely intentional]].
* The titular character of ''WesternAnimation/XavierRenegadeAngel'' often makes bigoted or politically incorrect statements [[HypocriticalHumor while calling out other people for perceived bigotry or political incorrectness.]] For example, in "Weapons Grade Life", he not only assumes that a ChildProdigy is mentally handicapped just because he's in a wheelchair, but also assumes two of his friends are bullies picking on him when he sees them together because he refuses to believe that anyone could possibly be friends with someone with a disability.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** The otherwise generous and golden-hearted Rarity is brought to tears when called a mule, claiming "mules are ugly." It hasn't come up since mules were established as an actual "race" in the show, so it's likely either a case of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, or else it was Rarity pretending to be distraught over being called a mule as part of her invoking PityTheKidnapper.
** Subverted in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E9BridleGossip Bridle Gossip]]" with the "witch" Zecora. The ponies aren't terrified or fearful of her because she's a zebra, as they've never even heard of zebras and think she's a pony with painted-on stripes. They're terrified of her because she lives in the [[EldritchLocation Everfree Forest]], acts creepy and threatening, and because they believe she's a witch. There's even one heck of a GeniusBonus with Zecora's hoof-dragging: to ponies it's a sign of aggression and one of the reasons she's intimidating, but it's something zebras do to find water in dried up riverbeds.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Members Only" made Major Glory and the other superheroes from ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' sexist and ageist by making fun of the Powerpuff Girls and denying them membership in their team just because they're girls and children.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'': The Penguins look down on humans but they will deliberately avoid harming them in the course of their schemes. Skipper noticeably has a 1950s era male chauvinist attitude.
