* To some extent, the ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' version of halflings tends to be this : way too nice for their own good, often working for humans and easily taken advantage of, even enslaved on a wide scale in half the nations where their population is significant. No wonder most halfling adventurers tend to be of the GuileHero type, with racial bonuses that truly help with that.

Thankfully there is an organization in-universe (the Bellflower Network) which serves the same function the Underground Railroad did in RealLife.


* The cursed children from ''LightNovel/BlackBullet'', young girls born with the Gastrea virus in their blood, the same virus that turn people into {{Eldritch Abomination}}s. How society treats the cursed children is sickeningly in Jim Crow law levels (from public flogging and lynching to forced segregation and even PoliceBrutality). [[spoiler:And because the cursed children are born with said virus, they'll eventually turn into Eldritch Abominations anyways in a much slower rate. It gets worse for them when the government plans to strip them away from their citizenship and plan a genocide against them.]]

* ''Fanfic/MyBravePonyStarfleetMagic'' manages to [[UnintentionallySympathetic unintentionally]] turn the Equestrians into this. They're forced to undergo mutations into humanoid creatures, are having their culture and way of life erased, are seen as "inferior" by [[DesignatedHero Starfleet]], and the few that try to protest this new status quo are ''always'' defeated and/or subjected to a FateWorseThanDeath.

* The Oompa-Loompas in ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' were this once upon a time. This tribe of unusually LittlePeople comes from Loompaland, a DeathWorld where they were constantly at the mercy of carnivorous beasts. They found some protection from them by building a TreeTopTown to live in, but they still faced a lack of palatable food for themselves -- they subsisted primarily on mashed green caterpillars -- and more than anything else they craved cacao beans, which were virtually nonexistent. When chocolatier Willy Wonka came along and offered them the chance to live in his chocolate factory and enjoy all the cacao beans they wanted in exchange for serving as his new workforce, they didn't hesitate to take him up on the offer!
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': Of all the intelligent humanoids on the Disc, FantasticRacism may hit the goblins the hardest - they face poverty and social marginalization wherever they live, and in many areas aren't legally considered people and can be murdered and enslaved with impunity.



* Creator/DavidBrin's ''Literature/{{Uplift}}'' saga has humans themselves. Most aliens despise or hate them as an upstart rogue species that never had a proper upbringing, but even in-universe a few view them as TheWoobie.
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': Of all the intelligent humanoids on the Disc, FantasticRacism may hit the goblins the hardest - they face poverty and social marginalization wherever they live, and in many areas aren't legally considered people and can be murdered and enslaved with impunity.



* ''Literature/ImminentDangerAndHowToFlyStraightIntoIt'' features the Claktills, small friendly beings whose SuicidalPacifism meant they didn't resist when the Rakorsians came to destroy their planet. They escaped its destruction, but have since become favourite victims of the Ssrisk, who exploit their pacifism by using them as slave labour and pets. The Psilosians have tried to help them, but the Claktill are now stuck on run-down Psilosian ships wandering through space without a home, slowly being picked off by criminals and still unable to defend themselves.
* ''Franchise/{{Mistborn}}'':
** The [[VoluntaryShapeshifting kandra]], once you get past the squickiness of how their powers work [[note]] A kandra can mold his or her body into any shape, but can't create a rigid skeleton of their own and can't imitate and individual without digesting them first, meaning that yes, they ''eat'' people to get both a model and the bones[[/note]]. Victims of extreme FantasticRacism from humans who fear and/or are squicked by their abilities, the only way they survive is by creating a Contract that allows individual kandra to rent themselves out as servants to powerful humans, who often abuse them horribly (since, as the kandra Ten Soon notes, you can beat a kandra to death at night and still have them ready to serve you next morning, so long as you give them new bones). [[spoiler: Oh, and their ancestors were human, and the process used to transform them leaves them open to mind control by an insane, nihilistic god]].
** The [[AlwaysChaoticEvil koloss]] are a JerkassWoobie species. Created by [[EvilOverlord the Lord Ruler]] to act as shock troops, koloss [[spoiler:are humans who have been transformed into enormous, mentally-stunted berserkers. Only able to experience two emotions, apathetic and enraged, they vaguely remember that they were once human and still should be, but no longer know exactly what that was like. Like their "cousins" the kandra, they are also open to being controlled by the same dark god.]]

* The Narns in ''Series/BabylonFive'' and the Bajorans in ''Franchise/StarTrek'' exist to fulfill this trope. They both represent oppressed and exploited peoples, cruelly invaded and enslaved by more powerful alien forces, fighting harshly for regain independence and suffering many setbacks in the reconstruction of their home worlds once freed.

* The [[SpaceElves Eldar]] of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' are more of a "JerkassWoobie Species", but after their ancestors birthed the [[GodOfEvil god of depravity]] which destroyed their empire they're a DyingRace, scattered into tiny pockets and inevitably falling into extinction as they're killed off by the [[CrapsackWorld ludicrously hostile galaxy]]. And after they die, said depravity god is waiting to claim their souls.

Discovery Channel's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Day_of_the_Dinosaurs "The Last Day of the Dinosaurs"]] plays them up as woobies fairly well, showing what a catastrophic event the asteroid impact was.

* Sharks. Thanks to [[Film/{{Jaws}} a certain movie]] they have [[TheDreaded an irreparably horrible reputation]], despite killing fewer people than dogs and the vast majority of species are harmless to humans. Around a hundred million sharks are killed every year for no good reason, and most people don't see anything wrong with this. Not helped at all by humans who like talking about how cute and harmless the animals known to tear sharks and other animals apart [[ForTheEvulz for fun]] are (dolphins and orcas).

With this attempt on his life, the king agreed to divorce Ana, but only on the condition that she kept herself alive for all eternity by drinking the blood of three of her own kind. As soon as she dies, all Keshali will belong to the king by default and he will use that right to exterminate them for once and for all. Now, the Keshali are mostly reclusive, living in the forests and mountains. They bless and curse humans as fit, sometimes warding off the disease demons and sometimes killing them with avalanches should they encroach on their domain.
