FantasticRacism in WesternAnimation.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots'' features Cleevil the orphan goblin, who is immediately disliked by the adults of San Lorenzo because all goblins are seen as no good troublemakers.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'' episode "True Colors" is obvious to the point of parody. Kooky von Koopa (AKA: Ludwig in the games) and Cheatsy Koopa (AKA: Larry) fly around painting half the Toads (and Luigi) red and half (and Mario) blue. They then disguise themselves as red and blue Toads to stir up resentment between the two halves of the population. The conflict is resolved when the Mario brothers manage to get the Toads to rally in defense of their princess. The [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything similarities to real life racism]] is {{anvilicious}}ly {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in the end by the brothers:
-->'''Luigi:''' Think they'll ever learn that lesson in the real world?
-->'''Mario:''' [[HumansAreMorons Yeah, when humans get as smart as mushrooms!]]
* The premise of ''WesternAnimation/AKindOfMagic'' is a fairy-tale family who had to move to the real world because of fantastic ''segregation'': The mom is a fairy and the dad is an ogre, but interracial marriage is apparently outlawed in Fairyland.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AlfredJKwak'', the titular character travels to a country called Atrique, where the original inhabitants, the black ducks, are under the oppressive and discriminative authority of the white geese. It is obviously South Africa before the abolition of Apartheid (the series was produced in the late 1980s), just with humanoid animals.
* The wolves in ''WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega'' use the word "coyote" as an insult for one another. As implied via the other animals they talk to, wolves clearly aren't the only sentient species around.
* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'':
-->'''Steve:''' I like the Berenstein Bears, I just wouldn't want one of them marrying my daughter.
* A subtle theme in the "Chicken Boo" segments of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. Boo usually excels at whatever career he takes in his disguise, and is beloved by everyone who talks about him. However once he's outed as a Chicken, everyone turns on him, even to the point of siding with the oppressor that Boo had ''saved them from'' moments before.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' has [[CatsAreMean Gumball]] trying to frame [[AnimateInanimateObject Alan]], a 3D talking balloon of being prejudiced towards [[MediumAwareness 2D characters]] in [[Recap/TheAmazingWorldOfGumballS3E29TheSaint "The Saint"]] after being tired of his [[IncorruptiblePurePureness positive attitude.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes'', naturally tomatoes and humans hate each other after the Big War, therefore Tara’s identity as a tomato (if expose to salt, otherwise she looks like a pretty teenager, but still a tomato “inside”) is kept secret. Same with furry tomato F.T. who is presented as a deform red dog.
* ''Avatar: WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' has prejudice between benders and nonbenders. The [[BigBad main villain]] of the first season is the leader of an antibending "Equalist" movement that seeks to get rid of bending altogether.
** Tarrlok, who [[spoiler:represents the extremist, xenophobic faction of the benders, and takes advantage of the growing current of anti-Equalist sentiment to establish his own rule over Republic City]].
** Aang's touchy relationship with being the last Airbender apparently made him favor Tenzin over his other two non-Airbending children. This can be seen as an analogue to mixed race families where despite being related, kids that take on certain phenotypes may be given more advantages in life than their siblings. Similarly the Air Acolytes didn't even know Tenzin had any siblings and mistook his more Waterbender sister and Non-bender brother for servants.
** Book 2 introduces spirits, who are very racist towards humans. As of the series finale, this racism has since been erased with some explaining.
* AnimalJingoism between rhinos and elephants is a common subject in ''WesternAnimation/{{Babar}}''. Even when Rataxes' prejudice toward elephants is played as a characteristic of his villany, Babar himself and other elephants are also shown to be prejudiced about rhinos, though maybe to a lesser extent. Rataxes' racism come to play in a TearJerker episode when he and his wife find an orphan baby elephant and he is oppose to adopt her only on the basis that she's an elephant and ends caring for her.
* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce:'' The Highbreed, who served as BigBad of the first two seasons, looked down on any and all non-Highbreeds, especially humans, viewing them all as mongrels and vermin. They didn't even try to hide it: the Highbreed Commander that Ben fought in the pilot episode openly and relentlessly insulted him with remarks like "filth" and "scum", and when Ben [[ManBitesMan bit his hand]] to escape a NeckLift, freaked out and declared that Ben had "[[HumanityIsInfectious infected]]" him. Unusually, they were content to merely avoid contact with other species in the past. The reason they started their campaign to "cleanse" the universe is because [[spoiler: they discovered that their species has become sterile and will go extinct in a generation or two. [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum They just can't stand the idea of "inferior" beings outliving them.]] However, using the Omnitrix to hybridize them and cure their genetic damage, Ben convinces the Highbreed to drop their villainous ways and reform.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Bravestarr}}'', a SpaceWestern with a Native American hero, the indigenous "Prairie People" of New Texas (gnomelike sorts that burrowed like prairie dogs and had a vast underground kingdom) were the stand-ins for Native Americans, indigenous people treated with prejudice by the settlers.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBrothersGrunt'', the Poobah explains to viewers that in ancient times, the Grunts were persecuted by those who did not understand their ways.
* Amanda Killman from ''WesternAnimation/BunsenIsABeast'' is convinced Bunsen is evil, no matter [[AllLovingHero how nice he is]].
-->''"Back off, beast! You are different and therefore bad."''
* In ''WesternAnimation/CapitolCritters'' a few episodes dealt with a gang of rats at war with a gang of cockroaches the roaches were meant to symbolize minorities in general some spoke in African, Italian, Hispanic, and Yiddish accents, they constantly referred to each other as dirty and disease ridden scum.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' episode "The Cat Club", Cat joins a cat-only club, unaware that it's actually a hate group planning to get rid of every dog in the world.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Chaotic}}'', there is ''fantastic jingoism''. One can interpret that all the land-based tribes of Perim are engaged in four way holy war over who is blame for having the [[CrystalDragonJesus Cothica]] disappear and ending the [[{{Gotterdammerung}} Golden Age]]. Then came the M'arrilians who exhibited big time FantasticRacism by choosing to flood the planet by heat-ray melting of the ice caps, even though there is plenty of existing oceans assuming Perim is an Earth-like planet.
* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' when Tim takes Cleveland in to meet his boss (who's hiring); the boss rather awkwardly expresses discomfort with Cleveland being black to Tim who's a ''talking bear''.
** Then there's this exchange from when Cleveland and Tim first meet.
-->'''Cleveland:''' "AHHHH! A BEAR!"\\
'''Tim:''' "Ahh! A black man! (beat) See it's not nice."
* Max Fleischer's ''WesternAnimation/ColorClassics'': The Hunky and Spunky short "Snubbed by a Snob" involves the titular donkey duo visiting a thoroughbred horse farm where a colt is warned by his mother not to associate with their kind. The colt and Spunky sneak off the farm, prompting the colt's mother and Hunky call for them while giving each other dirty looks. After Spunky saves the colt's life, the parents reconcile their differences and spend time together.
* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', most ghosts don't like humans and most humans are terrified of the ghosts. Danny being half-ghost makes it worse, as he's hated period by most ghosts he meets and his alter ego is feared and hated by most humans except his SecretKeeper friends/sister and the AlphaBitch. It gets creepy when Danny hears about his parents discussing what to do with his alter ego's remains if they ever caught him.
** Although in the humans' case, it's somewhat justified. The majority of humanity's first experiences with ghosts stemmed from an attack by a group of Danny's enemies from the Ghost Zone. Until that point, it was the people that ''believed'' in them were the ones that were ridiculed. The reason [[AlphaBitch Paulina]] was among the first to stop hating Danny was because Danny outright saved her life, at which point she started to idolize him.
** Somewhat strangely, as a whole the ghosts actually seem to be the more accepting of the two 'species', since non-hostile ghosts don't have any problem with Danny being half-human (they don't really seem to have any objections to humans either) and apart from one or two exceptions any hostility on the part of the ghosts that Danny fights with is more to do with him being in their way, their obsessions, and/or grudges about previous defeats rather than him being a halfa, not to mention that the events of "The Fright Before Christmas" heavily imply that in a weird way they see him as being one of them ("Tomorrow you'll see what *this* baby can do! /... But all ghosts share the truce... even half-ghosts like you. "). BlueAndOrangeMorality may apply.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian'' had Dave, Fang, and Faffy believing that they'd found their true people (gorillas, monkeys, and lemons, respectively), and trying to integrate into their societies. But at the end of the episode, their new surrogate families flip out when they discover that they're actually human, human, and dragon; the gorillas hate humans because of their pink ears, monkeys hate them both for their lack of tails, and the lemons think limbs in general are just plain obscene. When Dave tries to point out the silliness of this and that their companions in the lynch mob also have the traits they despise, they realize the truth of this and admit they shouldn't fight humans... [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Instead, they should fight]] ''[[ComicallyMissingThePoint each other!]]''
* In the ''WesternAnimation/DaveyAndGoliath'' episode, "The Polka Dot Tie", Davey and friends bully a boy (who was, in fact, black) for wearing a polka dot tie (It was because Davey's friend's father knew a guy with a polka dot tie who "he couldn't trust") In a later episode, Goliath doesn't like a white dog for being white. Actually, the main story of this episode was Davey's black friend Jonathan's, cousin, who didn't like white people, was in town, and he was blindfolded because he had an accident with his older brother's chemistry set. Jonathan tries to teach him a lesson by introducing him to Davey, who was white, and letting them become friends.
* The old MGM cartoon "Little Johnny Jet" features a talking, anthropomorphic B-29, who's "old and burnt out", and out of work because jets are getting all the jobs. As a result, he ''really'' hates jets, and seeing as they tend to mock him whenever he tries to get work, this isn't exactly undeserved. The final kick in the face seems to be when his newborn son turns out to be a jet. (He does, however, gain more respect for jets when his son saves his life and helps him win a race.)
* The BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/DinoSquad'', Victor Veloci, a velociraptor who somehow gained human form, hates humans with a passion, believing them inferior to dinosaurs. His reason? Because dinosaurs have been around for millions of years, and humans for only a few thousand.
* It seems to be the way of nature in ''{{WesternAnimation/Dinotrux}}'' for the various species of Dinotrux to only hang out with their own kind and to distrust other species. Things don't start changing until the main character realizes how much better things can be if they work together to build stuff.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ExoSquad'', humans often call Neosapiens "Sapes" or "Neos". (Note that "Neos" is considered an acceptable everyday term, while "Sapes" is more like a slur, and at one point an officer takes some time to dress down one of his troopers for using the latter term.) The Neosapiens themselves view themselves as the Superior Species, and thus call humans 'Terrans'. Neosapiens also show racism towards the Neo Warriors, a breed of animalistic warriors created to fight for them. [[MyCountryRightOrWrong General Shiva]] regards even the somewhat more advanced versions with rudimentary speech as simple animals.
* On ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', it's strongly implied that fairies tend to look down on other races, specifically anti-fairies, pixies, and genies. Aside from a few FantasticSlurs, this is never really explored.
* While the humans, robots, and aliens appear to be more or less well integrated in the world of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', there is still a certain amount of hatred and rivalry that exists between the three groups - but the sewer mutants are the one group that is truly marginalized, as they're forced to remain underground. Something of a subversion in that the sewer mutants aren't portrayed in a sympathetic way, not even the main characters really care that the mutants are hated and forced to live in a sewer. Even when [[spoiler: it's revealed that Leela isn't an alien, but actually a mutant herself (although [[HumanAliens human looking enough to pass for alien]], she still lives on the surface after this episode), she still doesn't seem to be bothered much that her parents are considered freaks and they must live in a sewer]].
** There's also the sewer mutants' derogatory references to sub-sewer mutants.
*** Don't be silly, they're just a [[UrbanLegends suburban legend!]]
** Though [[spoiler:the mutants are finally granted legal emancipation and allowed above ground]] near the end of season 6, it's not {{canon}}ically acknowledged until the season 8 episode "Zapp Dingbat".
** Hermes Conrad is strongly implied to hate decapodians as evidenced by his interactions with Zoidberg. Hermes frequently and spitefully calls Zoidberg "ya filthy crab", which if taken into context is considered to be a racist slur because crabs are crustaceans while decapodians are aliens with many crustacean features. The show does not have Hermes interact with other decapodians but the way he has treated Zoidberg throughout the series while compared to how he treats the other members of Planet Express does give Hermes this vibe. In fact, the implication of his hatred towards decapodians could be the main reason why he hates Zoidberg.
** When will you people learn that all races are equally inferior to robots?
** Human/robot racism is a common theme that Bender loves to bring up (one of his {{Catch Phrase}}s is "Kill all humans"). The most immediate example being "Fear of a Bot Planet" where he points out that (almost) all of the [[{{Calvinball}} Blurnsball]] players are human, with the robots generally being [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything relegated to labor duties]]. Coincidentally enough, right after the game is over Farnsworth sends Bender and the rest of the Planet Express crew to a radical robot separatist planet where humans are "shot on sight". Unsurprisingly, Bender defects from the team and becomes a highly regarded leader of the planet's omnipresent anti-human movement.
** Ironically, Bender is also a strong advocate of robot rights and in " Ghosts In The Machines" he decides to kill himself after he gets convinced that Fry perceives robots as having less life value than humans.
* The last season of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' animated series featured a group of villains called the Quarrymen, who schemed to rid New York of the title characters due to their vaguely reptilian appearance (though there are much deeper reasons as well). With their full body suits and triangular hoods, the Quarrymen looked disturbingly like the Ku Klux Klan.
** This trope is actually fundamental to the show as a whole. Demona, the BigBad, actually became a genocidal maniac because of the constant prejudice she dealt with from the humans she and the other gargoyles protected each night. The massacre of most of her clan and her downward spiral resulted from this. Ironically, Demona has more in common with the evil humans she detests than with her own kind. In fact, said massacre was actually due to a botched plan to rid the castle of humans and let the gargoyles take over, orchestrated by none other than Demona herself.
*** Goliath himself showed shades of this during the first episode when speaking to Xanatos. Of course, it is completely justified since he had just woken from a thousand years sleep, thought he had been betrayed by the one human that didn't treat them like garbage.
** Early in the show, the three youngest members try to get a taxi and [[FailingATaxi fail]], but this is perhaps understandable, since the taxi driver just saw what looked like a winged monster jumping in front of his car. Few characters take their first gargoyle sighting in stride.
** And there is an island full of "animal humans". They call themselves "the children of New Olympus" and should to be the descendants of humans and fairies, but they have great aversion to humans. Not without foundation, because once humans have their ancestors called monsters and brutally hunted. However, towards the end of the series, they seem to recognize that there are also good humans.
* Some amount of Fantastic Racism appears in ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' against [=EVOs=]. They generally inspire fear or hatred when they appear, including [[TheHero main character]], who is frowned upon by his own employer. There is also a guy who hunts teenagers down with a giant gun and believes in KillItWithFire instead of using the cure. Considering that most of them are mindless monsters and sapient ones known to general public either [[DestructiveSaviour cause major property damage]] (Rex) or perform various acts of terrorism in name of "equality" (The Pack) this treatment may be justified. There is no defined line humanity-[=EVOs=], because this condition is in most cases curable and not only people can go EVO, but also animals, plants or even '''eggs'''.
** White Knight at one point took this trope to the extreme:
-->'''White Knight:''' I don't trust anything with nanites! ''(attacks Rex)''\\
'''Rex:''' ''Everything'' has nanites!\\
'''White Knight:''' Everything but me.
** This seems to change and take on more active form, when [[spoiler: Black Knight has taken over Providence and uses mind controlling collars to "turn an [=EVO=] curse into a blessing." They hunt down every [=EVO=], including sentient ones.]] The worst part of it? Society seems to be awfully accepting, though this may be due to [[VillainWithGoodPublicity an official propaganda.]]
* The Canadian animated short ''The Girl With Pinhead Parents'' is built on this. But it replaces actual races with fantasy beings who have inanimate objects replacing various limbs. The titular character, a girl whose head is shaped like a pin, is forced to be science partners with a boy who has hockey sticks in place of his hands. She's incredibly uncomfortable with this, because her parents have forbidden her to associate with anyone who isn't a pin person and she knows they'll be angry.
* Distrust and prejudice between monsters and humans is an important plot point in ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh'', as the series is basically a FishOutOfWater story about human professor Schneider earning the trust of both his colleagues and his students in a [[AllGhoulsSchool monster high school]] even with the enormous prejudice against humans. Humans also show prejudice against monsters, of course. One episode deals with Frankentyke embarrassed of his father and trying to use a expy of his own creation for a parents’ meeting because [[spoiler:his father is human, as is logical considering that he is a FrankensteinMonster.]]
* Granamyr the Dragon King from ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' has a dislike for humans. He respects He-Man, but cannot resist throwing anti-human comments whenever he speaks. The Snake Men consider themselves the ultimate race and consider all other beings to be food or slave labor at best.
* An important plot point in ''WesternAnimation/GummiBears'' is the prejudice that Gummies have over humans, especially in the case of Gruffy who is presented as the more traditional and conservative of the bunch. Justified in that several episodes show how Gummi Bears were persecuted to extinction by greedy humans who wanted their magic and mechanical abilities. Most Gummi that the main cast encounters are shocked to know that the Gummies befriended a human like Cavin.
* The Irken race in ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' look down on every other species, act superior, insult them openly and even enslave them. They don't look down on the other races because they're not Irken, but because they're shorter than the Irken leaders, the Almighty Tallest.
* ''WesternAnimation/IronManArmoredAdventures'': Despite this show not focusing on the X-Men, Senator Robert Kelly is in fine form preaching anti-mutant propaganda to New York City. Luckily, it seems not many people are listening.
** Even Pepper feels a little of this due to an understandable fear of mutants. Naturally she's over it by the episode's end. To drive the racism parallels home, [[ComicBook/WarMachine Rhodey]] is the one to shout down Pepper for being ignorant after she expresses some questionable views on mutant rights.
* On ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'', Heinouses hate [[WickedWeasel weavils]] with a passion. As a result, weavils tend to be treated as social pests, only good for doing dirty work. Not that this reputation [[AlwaysChaoticEvil isn't entirely undeserved]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Mr. Cat is extremely racist by these terms. One episode even had him, while [[ItMakesSenseInContext trying to anger everybody else,]] claim that "cats are a superior race", and he claims to despise ducks and rabbits.
** In the first episode of the series, Stumpy objects to being teamed up with Mr. Cat for a game because CatsAreMean[[note]]This may have been EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, as in later episodes he willingly teams up with Mr. Cat.[[/note]].
* In the ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPandaLegendsOfAwesomeness'' episode "Serpent's Tooth", the cobra kung-fu master Fu-xi was a great hero until he was betrayed by mammals who believed ReptilesAreAbhorrent. When he returns to seek revenge, many of the villagers start distrusting Viper, because she's a snake as well. Even Po turns out to be an InnocentBigot who says Viper isn't like "other snakes".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'':
** Simba has shades of this as he is very persistent that the ''Lion'' Guard should only contain lions.
** Fuli, a cheetah, has issues with how lions rule over the prideland.
** Kion has many incorrect notions about hyenas, such as that they're AlwaysChaoticEvil or they don't understand the Circle of Life, that he learns aren't quite right when he befriends Jasiri. Jasiri herself doesn't trust lions 100% but they learn to deal with their differences.
* "The Big Feud" from ''WesternAnimation/LloydInSpace''. While researching their cultural heritages for a school project, Kurt and Douglas discovered that there was a dispute over the common moon that orbited both the ancestral homes of their respective races. Neither race forgave the other for the incident. Despite being best friends, Kurt and Douglas started to hate each other more and more over the course of the episode (with the help of their parents). This escalated to both sides recruiting help from the "old country" to [[NotBigEnoughForTheTwoOfUs drive the other race out of Intrepidville]]. Fortunately, by the end of the episode Kurt and Douglas realized the error of their ways and [[CallingTheOldManOut spoke out against]] the whole feud.
--> '''Douglas:''' [[Awesome/LloydInSpace Feel free to cling to the past if you will, but not at the price of my future!]]
* In the ''Franchise/MonsterHigh'' webisodes, various monster types (vampires vs. werewolves; seawater creatures vs. freshwater creatures) traditionally do not get along well. Monster society seems to be separate from human society, too, and schools are also segregated. Not only are monster schools separate from human schools, but monster schools themselves are classified according to monster type. The titular school is the first school open to all types of monsters.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'': Sometimes it seems Jenny can't go anywhere without someone belittling her (like the Krust cousins) or telling her to GTFO (like the owner of Mesmer's diner) simply because she's a robot.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Any character that isn't a pony ''will'' be subjected to this one way or another. Even {{lampshade|Hanging}}d within the show itself. If a character appears to be a major part in an episode, but isn't a pony, chances are they're going to be an [[ObviouslyEvil outright villain]], a DesignatedVillain, a mere {{Jerkass}} or just shown in a less sympathetic light if they aren't jerkish nor evil[[note]]and if none of this happens, it's because they're a returning character who went through it in a previous appearance[[/note]]. Double bonus if you happen to be a ''dragon''. Yes, this even ''includes'' [[ButtMonkey Spike]]. The ''many'' examples below:
** Subverted in "Bridle Gossip", where it initially seems that the ponies are fearful of the strange visitor to Ponyville because she's a zebra. Only when Twilight expresses skepticism as to their claims of her being evil do they explain their fear stems from her living in the Everfree Forest, which the ponies treat as an EldritchLocation because nature there doesn't behave the way [[PaintingTheFrostOnWindows ponies think it should]].
*** As a matter of fact, the Ponyville ponies didn't even know what a zebra was in the first place and just assumed Zecora was some really weird and creepy pony witch.
*** Inverted in "The Cutie Pox"; Zecora shows up in Ponyville to find everypony panicking and running for shelter, and initially assumes they're reacting this way to her before Twilight tells her what's actually scaring them.
** In "Over a Barrel", there is animosity between the ponies and the bisons. It has more to do with differing opinions than species, however, and ultimately given the opportunity to talk to each other they easily settle their issues.
*** Doubles as a GeniusBonus when you realize the whole episode is an allegory for the disputes between Native Americans and the early settlers of the Western United States, which were partially racially-motivated.
** The [[ShowWithinAShow Play Within A Show]] in "Hearth's Warming Eve" shows there was much hostility between earth ponies, pegasi, and unicorns prior to the founding of Equestria, with each side viewing the others as inferior, [[EmotionEater which resulted in the]] [[{{Wendigo}} Windigos]] bringing an EndlessWinter. However, in modern day, this has largely faded out and the three races live in harmony.
*** In particular the three tribes all have negative viewpoints on each other due to their different cultures and roles in society. Unicorns formed an aristocracy and were seen as snobby elitist bourgeoisie, pegasi controlled the military and were viewed as violent, knuckle-dragging barbarians, and earth ponies were downtrodden farmers seen as uneducated serfs.
** In "Dragon Quest" the dragons, or at least the teenage ones that Spike faced, look down at the ponies and possibly other species as well. They even call [[PhysicalGod Princess Celestia]] a "namby-pamby pony princess."
** Although it's more InnocentlyInsensitive than actual prejudice, Iron Will (a minotaur) from "Putting Your Hoof Down" is referred as a monster by Pinkie Pie and Rarity.
** "A Dog and Pony Show" has Rarity's reaction to being called a mule: She screams that mules are ugly and breaks down into tears. However, later on ''mules are shown to be a sentient "race" just like ponies.''
*** [[LampshadeHanging "No offence."]]
*** [[RunningGag "None taken."]]
*** Adding to it, mules are a [[InterspeciesRomance hybrid of donkeys and ponies.]]
** In "The Cutie Re-Mark Part 2", an alternate Rarity from a BadFuture looks down on Spike for being a dragon (the regular Rarity likes him).
* In ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'', The Brain shows shades of this towards Pinky's girlfriend, who is a horse.
-->'''Brain''': That is a horse, Pinky. You are a mouse.\\
'''Pinky''': Oh, don't start that again, Brain.
** This is probably a subversion with the ComicallySerious Brain pointing out the absurdly physical impossiblity of the relationship and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Pinky]] mistaking it for this trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/PopeyeAndSon'' episode "There Goes the Neighborhood" deals with AnAesop about prejudice when a new kid in school turns out to be a {{werewolf}} from a [[CreepyFamily family]] of [[MonsterMash monsters]]. Bluto even organizes the town into a TorchesAndPitchforks lynching, only for the monsters to end saving them from a fire, thus [[AVerySpecialEpisode learning the lesson against racism]].
* In the ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies1980s'' episode "Tuffy Gets Fluffy", Whopper and Bright Eyes are shown to have negative feelings about cats. Thankfully, they learn in the end that not all cats are bad.
* Exaggerated to the point of lampshading in the third season of ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'', as Enzo repeatedly encounters bigoted Mainframers who insist that only blue Sprites could make acceptable Guardians, each one spouting the refrain that "Green is no colour for the defender of the system!" At one point, a young toddler becomes incensed at the sight of him, and angrily hurls its (blue) Guardian plush toy in his face; "''Everyone's'' a critic!", he groans. It should be noted that after hearing that line, [[MagnificentBastard Megabyte played up the racism angle with a propaganda campaign.]]
* In the season two episode of ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', "Auto Erotic Assimilation," Rick hooks up with an alien hive-mind called "Unity" who had recently assimilated an entire planet of aliens. [[spoiler: Summer and Morty convince unity that life would not necessarily be better without her, but just normal life. When Unity does leave, the aliens almost immediately get into a race war between people with pointy nipples and people with spirally nipples.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'', Filbert and Paula's [[ParentalMarriageVeto families]] don't approve of their upcoming nuptials because "cats and turtles don't mix." [[spoiler: It's later revealed that Paula's father is a turtle, and her mother is just crazy.]] The two end up [[MyOwnPrivateIDo going to a drive-thru chapel instead of having a big-to-do ceremony in front of their]] FeudingFamilies.
** In another episode, Rocko has lost Spunky at the supermarket, and sees that Spunky has been packed in one of those shrink-wrapped Styrofoam trays meat comes in, and has been mistaken for meat by another customer. Rocko tries to get Spunky back by talking about how gross dog meat is, how polluted it is, and eventually by spinning a sob story about how sea creatures are trapped when dogs are caught in the wild. The guy in line says the following:
--> "Sea mammals...who needs 'em? This world would be a whole lot better off without them! We ought to build a boat, put all the sea mammals on it, send it across the ocean, and sink it halfway!"
--> '''Gorilla next to sobbing dugong(?)''': "HEY, BUDDY! MY ''WIFE'S'' A SEA MAMMAL!" Cue CurbStompBattle.
* Possibly the earliest televised example of this was Creator/{{Rankin Bass|Productions}}' ''WesternAnimation/{{Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer}}'', where Rudolph was a perfectly normal, healthy baby reindeer...whose nose happened to glow red on command. Almost everyone the poor thing encountered, from his own father to ''SantaClaus'', rejected him because of it. (At least his mother loved him just the way he was).
** Actually any character that was different suffered this fate, from the Elf who wanted to be a Dentist to the Island of Misfit Toys.
* Surprisingly enough, ''WesternAnimation/{{Rupert}}'' showed some examples of this.
** Podgy Pig expresses unfounded contempt towards snakes in "Rupert and the Crocodiles" and tries to warn Rupert Bear against saving a snake claiming to be the Serpent King. Fortunately, Podgy eventually sheds his prejudices and is shown to be grateful when he, Rupert, a ship captain, and the captain's first mate are later rescued from a tribe of bipedal crocodiles that attempted to eat them by the Serpent King and many other snakes.
** "Rupert and the Twilight Fan" had Rupert and the Professor's assistant go to the Bird Kingdom to find the tail feather of a rare bird so that it can be used to awaken Tiger Lily from a sleeping spell. The sapient birds who inhabit the kingdom attempt to imprison Rupert and the Professor's assistant for daring to arrive in a flying machine, believing that only birds are allowed to experience flight. Some penguins native to the Bird Kingdom eventually take the flying machine for a ride, which makes the king of the Bird Kingdom realize how selfish his people have been by trying to deny the flightless a chance at experiencing flight.
** More prejudice from the Bird Kingdom is shown in "Rupert and the Firebird". Rupert visits the Bird Kingdom to find help for his new pet firebird Bernie, who got sick after being exposed to water by accident. The owl guards promptly throw Rupert into the dungeon simply because he isn't a bird and laugh at his claims that he is friends with the Bird King. Rupert only manages to escape by hiding in a pelican's beak, and the owl guards keep searching for Rupert until the wiser Bird King talks them out of it.
* Tim the Witch Smeller in ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries''. In Tim's first episode, after Uncle Quigley gives an {{Anvilicious}} speech about how not all witches are bad, Tim appears to have seen the error of his ways. Tim apologises to Sabrina and her aunts and claims that he will turn over a new leaf. But once they forgive him he reveals he was only putting on an act and goes right back to trying to capture them now that they've let their guard down.
** Tim's own FreudianExcuse also deals with this trope, since he was a MuggleBornOfMages who grew up constantly mocked by his peers.
* A race of anthropomorphic canids (since calling them the "D" word would be a big No-no) in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' are extreamly offended (to a point of murderous intent) when being called a dog, beeing called dog names (Rover) or having their behaviour compared to typicall dog behaviour. Scaramouche manages to do all that during one short argument.
* One of the underlying themes of ''WesternAnimation/ShadowRaiders'', though partially justified in this case because each of the {{Single Biome Planet}}s is rich in one resource that the others lack (Bone produces food, Ice produces water, Fire produces energy, and Rock presumably produces metal and whatever other mineral-based AppliedPhlebotinum is needed), so all of the planets have been raiding and warring with each other for centuries. Particularly evident in the populace of planets Ice and Fire, where each species believes that merely touching their counterpart species will kill them.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/SherlockHolmesInTheTwentySecondCentury'' episode based on "The Five Orange Pips", the villains are an anti-robot group working with Moriarty. In the original story, they were the Ku Klux Klan.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' Treehouse of Horror XIX, Nelson threatens a yellow pumpkin with a knife in order to not be eaten by the Grand Pumpkin, who just points out that he doesn't care for a yellow pumpkin. When Nelson states that the Grand Pumpkin is a racist, he says "All pumpkins are racists".
** Not to mention upon death, Grandie spouts something about pumpkin segregation forever.
* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Goobacks" features immigrants {{time travel}}ing from an overpopulated BadFuture to find work in present-day Earth and work for minimal wages and invest it to support the people of their own time period. When Stan complains about all the jobs they are taking from South Park's citizens, his father accuses him of being "timecist".
* In ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' it is hinted that Sandy is sometimes ridiculed and not well liked because she is a land mammal and lives undewater with sea creatures. In season 1 episode "Karate Choppers" after Mr. Krabs gives Spongebob a second chance, he sniffs Sandy, gives a disgusted looks and snarls the word "mammals". In "Someone's in the Kitchen with Sandy" citizens ridicule Sandy and make fun of her hairless pink skin and treat her badly (though this could be more the fact she's seemingly running around naked). This isn't always present in an episode. For example in "Texas" she wanted to go to Texas, but Spongebob convinced her to stay and we see that Bikini Bottomites and Mr. Krabs like her and wanted her to stay in Bikini Bottom and had no ill will towards her.
** The episode "Pressure" has Krabs, Squidward, Patrick, and Spongebob belittling Sandy for not being like them, and challenging her to remove her survival suit. There's also "Squirrel Jokes", in which Spongebob becomes a popular comedian through "dumb squirrel" jokes, which result in Sandy being belittled and treated differently by the people of Bikini Bottom.
** In the former episode, Sandy isn't above engaging in some racism herself, to the point where she brags about land-dwelling creatures being good at ''fishing''. Yeesh.
** In "Kenny the Cat", Sandy thinks that cats are scoundrels and can't be trusted. Now replace "cats" with another race like for example "blacks". See the problem?
*** Then again, back home on dry land, [[StrawmanHasAPoint cats kill and eat squirrels]].
** The episode "Squidville" contains an example of fantastic segregation. Squidward moves to a gated community called Tentacle Acres, which only allows cephalopods like himself to live there; when Spongebob and Patrick try to enter, a security guard outright tells them that "your kind isn't allowed here".
** A case of this turns up in "[=SpongeGuard=] On Duty" when [=SpongeBob=] tries to deter people from going into the water by warning that there are sharks in there, only to offend a family of sharks. He then tries to say that the water isn't safe because sea monsters are there, but that isn't any better and results in a bespectacled sea monster replying with "You know, we sea monsters have made great strides in the fields of science and literature".
* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': Though the show is light hearted and colorful with [[BlackComedyBurst Black Comedy Bursts]], the show slowly reveals a fairly harsh case of this. The monsters [[CharacterTitle Star]] gleefully fights turn out to have few other employment options other than as the Mooks to a ManChild. Star's ancestors massacred the monsters off their lands and jealously guard the food they grow, forcing the monsters to scrape a living in the swamps.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'':
** TheEmpire looks down on aliens, and it's rare for them to serve in high-ranking positions within the Empire. The Inquisitors and Grand Admiral Thrawn are the only exceptions.
** Agent Kallus seems to be this, though most of it has been against Lasats. [[spoiler:It turns out it's from a misplaced grudge, due to [[DarkAndTroubledPast trauma]] from seeing his first unit getting killed by a mercenary that just so happened to be a Lasat.]] He once tried to harass Hera for being a [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Twi'lek]] when they met in [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS1E10VisionOfHope "Vision of Hope"]], as well as Rex (a clone) in [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS2E02RelicsOfTheOldRepublic "Relics of the Old Republic"]].
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** Peridot does not think highly of pearls and fusions, to say the least. Some fans jokingly refer to her prejudice as "gemist". Peridot's prejudice is the result of her adherence to Homeworld's FantasticCasteSystem, and is likely shared to some extent by any Homeworld gem. Pearls and [[FusionDance Fusions]] aren't considered people, and Peridot doesn't care for taking orders from them. Oddly, she doesn't have much issue with [[HalfHumanHybrid hybrids]] like Steven, presumably because Steven's completely unique and doesn't ''fit'' in any pre-established caste system. [[spoiler:[[CharacterDevelopment She gets better.]]]]
** Gems in general tend to be pretty dismissive of humans, with even the heroic Crystal Gems rarely treating them as equals. Pearl in particular can be very smugly dismissive.
** Early homeworld found the idea of two different kinds of gems fusing unacceptable.
** There's also this exchange when they see Yellow Diamond's Pearl:
--->'''Steven:''' Who's that?\\
'''Pearl:''' ''(annoyed)'' Not all Pearls know each other, Steven.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'', Jared tries to order bunny suits for everyone, but the Twins end up messing with the order so that half the prison population gets bunny suits and the other half gets wolf suits. HilarityEnsues.
* One particular episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', "Troq", dealt with Starfire dealing with the racism Tamaranians apparently are known to receive (Troq being a FantasticSlur for Tamaranians).
** Even more interestingly, Starfire told Cyborg what it meant--except it means "nothing" (as in, amounts to nothing, worthless) so he thought she was telling him it didn't mean anything when actually she was telling him Valyor was calling her a nothing. Once Cyborg found out, he was upset as he'd accidentally called her that himself, thinking it was a nickname.
*** Sadly, the point was kind of [[BrokenAesop mishandled]] since the Titans go on to commit ''genocide'' against a [[WhatMeasureisaNonHuman robotic race]] only on the word of a known racist that they were a threat.
* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'': Many steam engines and diesels have a strong dislike for one another. Some steam engines see the diesels as trying to take away their jobs, and some ([[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch but not all]]) diesels see the steam engines as outdated and deserving to be scrapped (which was the opinion of the actual British Railways in the 50s and 60s, especially after the publication of the Modernisation Plan of 1955). It was also a major driving force in the movie ''Calling All Engines''. In addition, one of the books, ''James and the Diesel Engines'', is all about the title character trying to overcome his prejudices against diesels.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}}'' the [[{{Catfolk}} Cats]]' empire of Thundera is full of this, and the people on top justify it with MightMakesRight [[SocialDarwinist Social Darwinism]]. The Cats look down on the other races of [[PettingZooPeople Animals]], especially their archenemies the [[LizardFolk Lizards]], and the Lizards despise the Cats in turn. The Cats also [[FantasticCasteSystem segregate]] their own species based on tails -- those who have them, such as the Thunderkittens, are treated as second class citizens.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', Sentinel Prime has severe issues with organics. While the trauma of having his friend killed by giant spiders might have something to do with it, there's something very wrong with a guy who [[spoiler: tells his not-so-dead friend, who is now part-organic, that she would have been better off dead and then tries to kill her himself.]]
** This seems to be common throughout the Cybertronian population. "This Is Why I Hate Machines" has Capt. Fanzone accidentally coming to Cybertron. Most of the natives are either terrified of him or try to squish him, and none refer to him as anything but "the Organic." And these are all ''Autobots''. Mind you, this happens after the aforementioned Sentinel Prime [[spoiler:becomes Magnus and begins a propaganda campaign against organics.]]
*** FridgeBrilliance: One of the organic species the Cybertronians have the most contact with are space barnacles that take over robots and turns them into zombies. They probably think that humans can do something similar. Also: Humans driving their vehicles (that Cybertronians can transform into) must look ''exactly'' like that to them.
* Megatron in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' hates humanity so much that he refuses to scan an Earth vehicle mode, preferring to stick with his Cybertronian jet mode. A wolf, he reasons, has no need to hide amongst sheep.
** Ratchet of the Autobots is also openly contemptuous of flesh-creatures, their technology and culture. He so assured of Cybertronian superiority that he does not even ''bother'' to learn about human physiology and medicine: This comes back to haunt him '''big'''-time when a human child that he has unwittingly come to love is mortally-wounded by Megatron, and he panics in desperation as he does not know the '''first''' thing to do to save his life.
** Additionally, Starscream has called humans vermin on more than one occasion, and Knock Out once refers to one as "skinjob".
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' displays a world with a multitude of races, all of whom are [[CulturalPosturing smugly condescending]] to each other on a regular basis. In particular, the Iop ethnicity is treated collectively as a pack of over-aggressive meatheads; you could make a drinking game using every time someone being stupid is referred to as "Iop-brain".
* ''WesternAnimation/WhateverHappenedToRobotJones'' had this happen both ways. The title character is frequently ridiculed and ostracized for being a robot, while his family often views humans as being inferior to robots.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys'', Eliza and Darwin had to deal with a feud between two groups of monkeys, one with long tails and one with short tails.
* One episode of Saban's ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' cartoon took the theme of prejudice against mutants and turned it on its head when ComicBook/{{Storm}} (an African) and {{Wolverine}} (a white Canadian) traveled back in time to the 1950s. When the waiter at a restaurant refused them service because Storm was black, she indignantly replied, "That's so pathetic it's almost quaint!"
** It was made even more of a sore spot because this version of Storm and Wolverine came from an alternate timeline in which they were ''married''. Needless to say, Wolverine didn't take it well.
** In keeping with the theme of the comic, all the X-Men TV series have addressed FantasticRacism. It becomes the major theme in the third and fourth seasons of ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'', after [[spoiler: the mutants are revealed to the world]], and it seems like pretty much every human hates the mutants.
* ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'':
** When talking about race conflicts in class, Megan mentions to Conner that on Mars there is a lot of discrimination against the white minority by the green majority. [[spoiler:It turns out that Megan is really a white martian, who takes a green and more humanoid form to avoid ostracization on Earth.]]
** In season two, reporter G. Gordon Godfrey is trying to encourage this by suggesting that the Justice League may be harboring more aliens than the publicly accepted Martian Manhunter and Superman. It works.
** [[DishingOutDirt Red Volcano]]'s goal was essentially to wipe out all organic life so that he and his fellow robots could rule. Oddly this plan seems to have come from his human creator, though it's a bit hard to tell since [[spoiler:the Morrow we originally see is actually a robot too]].
** The tie-in comic has a story revolving around a group of Atlantean extremists who try to incite violence against the citizens who do not look fully human such as Lagoon Boy, or even Kaldur himself, who has visible gills and webbed digits. In a later issue, La'gaan tells M'gann that he came to the surface in order to escape such prejudice, same as she did.
