Hates Everyone Equally

Of course, this would turn into a free-for-all.

Zevran: You seem to have quite the disdainful attitude towards elves, my Qunari friend.
Sten: Don't take it personally, elf. I have a disdainful attitude towards everyone.

If you treat one person like dirt with no serious provocation, it's a pretty good chance you're an asshole. If you treat a group of people like dirt, you're prejudiced and a bigot. If you treat (at least roughly) everyone like dirt, you're... kind of okay. At the very least, it says "Evil? Maybe. But petty? Never!"

The social version of A Million Is a Statistic. May be used as an Anti-Hero trait in cases like Noble Bigot with a Badge.

This can be Truth in Television. The term for this kind of person is "misanthrope", they usually manage to function within society and can form normal relationships with other humans. Indeed, it's considered an asset for humorists. It's still possible to hate one person slightly less than everybody else and be this. It's also possible to have a particular set of people you hate more than all the others, but for preference that group should also be very general.

Cynics may say that only a truly despairing person would hate all of humanity, and that people who claim to embody this trope actually subscribe to one of the more unpalatable types of hatred and are trying to mask it. (See also At Least I Admit It, where the willingness to admit pettiness and/or bias is thought of as courageous.) Regardless, although it might not be worse than bigotry, it's hard to argue that mistreating all people should be considered better than mistreating a particular subset thereof.

Contrast All-Loving Hero, related to Equal-Opportunity Offender. And especially contrast with Equal-Opportunity Evil, which is when a character bears grudges against no group but is still a villain.

    Anime & Manga 
  • Kyoya Hibari from Reborn! (2004) He hates everyone (except maybe his pet bird), and treats them all with contempt. Everyone in-series accepts this as just being him. And guess what? He's been consistently voted as the most beloved character in the series.
  • Hiyori of Bleach. She hates humans, she hates shinigami, she hates her fellow vizards, she hates hollows, but most of all she hates Aizen.
  • Johan Liebert from Monster. Notably, a group of neo-Nazis aspire to recruit him as their führer and resurrect Germany's totalitarian past, only to find out that Evil Is Not a Toy after failing to heed Dr. Tenma's warnings.
    Kenzo Tenma: [reacting to the revelation of The Baby's ambitions] Are you out of your mind?! Johan doesn't share your simple-minded views on racial purity. He's not just an ignorant bigot like all of you! He's different, don't you see? He looks down on all humanity!
  • Paracule from Tower of God. Everybody is just garbage to him.
    Paracule: No! It can't end like this! No matter what happens, I have to get to the top of the Tower! For me, unlike trash like you, far more important things are hanging on the line!
  • Genjou Sanzo & his past life Konzen Douji from Saiyuki, who according to Word of God "dislikes women because they're loud & noisy." He also dislikes men, because every guy he encounters either hits on him or tries to kill him. Sanzo dislikes being touched by anyone, including his closest friends, which points to asexuality. He seems to have an exception for the equally asexual gender-neutral-acting female Sanzo Sharak, whose personality & mannerisms mirror his.
  • Appropriately, Switzerland of Hetalia: Axis Powers is like this, the only exception being his Morality Pet Lichtenstein. Everyone else can talk to his rifle.
    • Allegedly, during WWII (the anime's timeline), Switzerland didn't want to take sides in the war - so it shot down planes from any side that entered its airspace.
  • Saori from Wandering Son has No Social Skills. She had no friends for much of her life as she disliked both boys and girls. It wasn't until Nitori transferred to her elementary school that she became socializing, and even then throughout the series (which spans late elementary to high school), she only has a small group of friends.
  • Inugami of Gugure! Kokkuri-san hates almost everything in the universe. He has only two exceptions: his enjoyment of the suffering of others, and his yandere affection towards Kohina Ichimatsu.
  • Sana from Pink Rush is an Idol Singer who hates all her fans equally—which forms a major part of her appeal, as even the most socially inept otaku can feel just as valued by her as the handsomest and suavest of her fans (that is, not at all).
  • In Yu-Gi-Oh!, Dark Marik dislikes everyone but himself.
  • Prior to his Character Development, Katsuki Bakugō in My Hero Academia dislikes almost everyone, and it has nothing to do with a person's power, gender, appearance, or anything. It's just that this is the story about HIS rise to greatness, and everyone that's not a villain for him to kill is just an extra that's only there to admire his fame. The only exception is his idol All Might, and that very admiration is why he was so fired up to fight All Might, to prove he was better than the best.
  • It's easy for Nacht from Black Clover to dislike someone. He hates Yami to the point he's only been to the hideout once, the Black Bulls for being destructive good-for-nothings even in spite of their major role against the elves, and tells the captains to be quiet because he hates people who can't even hold proper meetings. This is Played for Drama when he mentions how he hates the Dark Triad the most for being unrepentant scum who hurt others. That said, he states he likes Asta for being a good person, and doesn't hate people like Yuno.

    Comic Books 
  • Batman: Poison Ivy is a self-described misanthrope who hates all humans, except Harley Quinn and occasionally a few other select people.
  • Captain America: The Red Skull started off as a Nazi but has since expanded his insane sense of hatred to the whole world, including himself. Unlike most others who fall under this trope, there is nothing remotely likable or redeemable about the Red Skull.
  • Haagse Harry: When Harry is accused of discrimination, he retorts that he does not discriminate; as far as he's concerned "everyone can fuck off equally".
  • Immortal X-Men: Mister Sinister notes that he used to be a huge racist until he surgically corrected that part of his personality.
    Mister Sinister: All beings other than me are lesser. Why differentiate?
  • Judge Dredd: Dredd's arch-nemesis Judge Death is of a similar ilk as the modern Red Skull. He once executed a Camp Gay television host for making a pass at him. However, Judge Death is a psychopath who hates ALL life. If the guy hadn't pissed him off, he'd probably have been executed for wearing a tacky bow-tie. Earlier during his career, he had Judge Ava Eastwood's lesbian lover murdered in front of her. Again, there's no indication their sexuality played into it. She was just an enemy he wanted to dispose of.
  • One of the serial killers from the Doll House arc of The Sandman (1989) proudly declares that he hates everyone in the entire world, including himself. He's annoyed and confused at another serial killer who is actually selective in his killings.
  • One of the reasons why J. Jonah Jameson is all for equal rights in Spider-Man.
  • Kim Pine is accused of this in Scott Pilgrim, where she responds to her coworker asking her if that includes her by saying "you're part of everyone".
  • Superman: Sam Lane seemed less than thrilled to find out that his daughter Lois was going to marry Clark Kent, and seemed to give various reasons to why he didn't like him, ranging from Clark being too mild-mannered to blaming Clark for breaking off the engagement the previous time (Clark promptly pointed out that it was actually Lois who broke it off). Ron Troupe, who was engaged to Lois' sister Lucy, was worried about how he would take Lucy marrying a black man. Lucy replied that Sam was by no means racist. He hated all of his daughters' beaus.

    Comic Strips 
  • In The Boondocks, Huey Freeman seems to hate everyone and everything. He once tried to write a book about people he hated, seeing as he was so good at hating. But he didn't include Osama bin Laden, because as he explains, "He's so EASY to hate. I'm trying to challenge the reader to expand his or her hate horizons." He did, however, include Lucy from Peanuts, because of "the whole pulling-the-football-away thing."

    Fan Works 
  • Code Geass: Reverse: Carline la Britannia despises everyone, sewing her homeland as a stagnant empire full of weaklings and Area Eleven, which she now runs, full of scum and terrorist insects. She especially harbor hatred towards her family, particularly to her pacifistic older sister Euphemia. During one battle, she steals the Lancelot Knightmare frame to personally kill the rebels as well as hunting down and personally executing their leader.
  • In Raruto, Cachorrama, the first Big Boss, takes advantage of anyone with a wallet but will do it all without distinction of clan or species, unlike his racist family.
  • 'Hate' may be a strong word, but Avenger of Steel features Clark Kent musing that Jessica Jones is a dick to everybody regardless of race, religion, or disability.
  • In Shadowchasers: Ascension, there was this scene where Tiberius and Lorelei were talking to each other in their "host's" commissary:note 
    Lorelei: You don't suppose that Stormbringer has found out that we escaped yet?
    Tiberius: Ah, who cares? I hate that bastard...
    Lorelei: You hate everyone. I'm starting to think you hate yourself.
  • Rosario Vampire: Brightest Darkness Act III and IV: This is Hokuto's motive for resurrecting Alucard. As he states to Moka, he hates all living things, humans and monsters alike, and views them as nothing but evil, meaningless trash who could never co-exist and only want to live for the sake of living, endlessly killing one another to do so; thus, he believes that the only way to achieve true peace in the world is by reviving Alucard and allowing him to destroy every living thing on the planet.
  • Alucard claims this to be true of himself in Hellsing Ultimate Abridged. In practice, he doesn't hate people (unless they break his TV), he just finds it fun/funny to kill them.
  • Infinity Train: Blossoming Trail: Besides Mr. Bradbury and Parker, Chloe Cerise hates absolutely everyone in Vermillion City: Goh, her parents, Chryssa and Renji, her classmates, even visitors like Ash because of how they are all into Pokémon, they force her to do what they want her to do, she feels isolated and alone, and no one bothers to know the true her. During Chloe's journeys through the Infinity Train, she slowly abandons that mindset by making new friends and opening herself to new people (particularly Amelia). She also realizes that while she has a right to be angry with her parents, classmates, and her friend Goh, her situation is not really as black and white as she thought, and her anger with Ash was misplaced. By the end of the story, she lets go of her hatred, forgives her former bullies, and is working on repairing her bonds with her friends and family.

    Films — Animation 

    Films — Live-Action 
  • Il Bisbetico Domato: Elia, the main character, is a misanthrope who hates almost any kind of social interaction. The only people he is comfortable with are his housekeeper and the priest of the town.
  • Higgins from My Fair Lady.
    Higgins: You see, the great secret, Eliza, is not a question of good manners or bad manners, or any particular sort of manners, but having the same manner for all human souls. The question is not whether I treat you rudely, but whether you've ever heard me treat anyone better.
  • Sergeant Hartman from Full Metal Jacket at least claims to be this. If you are in training, you are nothing, "not even human fucking beings". If you are a Marine, you might as well be a god. He makes horrible comments to everybody but he does this to bait his recruits to learn, not out of genuine bigotry. This might be something of a subversion though, since his berating of Joker for not "loving the virgin Mary", on the other hand, smacks of a Catholic bias that goes beyond disregarding every recruit equally, and he expresses genuine contempt for communists (remember, Cold War) and "heathens". Oddly enough, he does respect Joker for having the balls to say it to his face and not back down in the face of a possible beating a few seconds after.note 
    Gunnery Sgt. Hartman: There is no racial bigotry here! I do not look down on niggers, kikes, wops or greasers! Here you are ALL equally worthless!
  • Dirty Harry:
    Di Georgio: Ah that's one thing about our Harry. Doesn't play any favorites! Harry hates everybody. Limeys, Micks, Hebes, Fat Dagos, Niggers, Honkies, Chinks, you name it.
    Gonzales: How does he feel about Mexicans?
    Di Georgio: Ask him.
    Harry Callahan: Especially Spics.
  • Transformers (2007): Bonecrusher hates everything.
  • In The Wild One, Badass Biker Johnny Strabler is asked what he's rebelling against. His reply: "Whaddaya got?"
  • In the Bowdlerized TV cut of Die Hard with a Vengeance, the racist sandwich board that McClane is forced to wear for Simon's first "game" is changed from "I hate [N-Word]s" to "I hate everybody".
  • RJ Fletcher from UHF seems to have absolutely no soft spot for anyone or anything in his life. He's eventually recorded ranting about his utter hatred for everyone in the city and boasting about how he's got them eating out of his hand; this gets broadcast over the air thanks to Philo overriding the channel 8 signal, and Laser-Guided Karma works wonderfully as he loses his station, his money, and gets kicked in the nads.

    Literature 
  • Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell has Strange's father, who never left any bequests when he died because he simply hated everyone.
  • Discworld
    • While he is a definite case of this, Vimes himself is never quite clear about how he feels about this and is usually trying to justify it to himself; one book features him wrestling with the problem, such as thinking to himself, "It wasn't as if he was specieist, was he?" Whatever else he is, though, he will always force himself to give someone a fair chance, no matter who - or what - they are.
    • Like Vetinari, he too has a special hatred for certain people — usually "kings and the undead", though in the case of Kings, that's more what they represent, in his mind (unthinking submission to inherited power), and the undead is later modified to be just vampires, for similar reasons (they're predators by nature who, to his mind, exemplify the worst of the upper class), and even then, he grudgingly gives a vampire watchwoman a chance. Sometimes assassins, too. He also has a fairly good opinion of Rhys Rhysson, the new Low King of the Dwarves - though it helps that the Low King is an elected position not unlike the Patrician of Ankh-Morpork.
      Vimes: I can't say I like dwarfs much, Littlebottom. But I don't like trolls or humans either, so I suppose that's okay.
    • Plays a considerable role in Jingo, where he is certain the assassination attempt was plotted by Ankh-Morporkians (due to the apparently cheaply counterfeited Orgy of Evidence that would point to it being a Klatchian murderer) because to think otherwise would be to agree with Lord Rust and other racists. As is pointed out by a Klatchian in the comment below, it was part of a Batman Gambit that explicitly relied on him responding like this (if Vimes, famously straight as an arrow, insisted it was his own people, then no one else in the world would disagree).
      Be generous, Sir Samuel. Truly treat all men equally. Allow Klatchians the right to be scheming bastards, hmm?
    • Similarly, Lord Vetinari is said in Sourcery to be a cruel and unfair ruler, but he is equally cruel and unfair to everyone. Vetinari does have a special hatred for mimes. (He reserves a scorpion pit just for them, with a large sign on the wall reading "LEARN THE WORDS.") This is, however, seen as one of his good points by most of Ankh-Morpork's citizens.
    • In Pyramids, camels are described this way. They look at every potential rider with smug hatred, having a very democratic approach to the human race.
  • Dan Mason in DOME claims to be this, but his true defining moment is risking - and losing - his life to save millions of people he's never met.
  • The Edge of Sadness: John is a misanthrope who hates everybody, and it's a real problem for him because he's a Catholic priest and it's a priest's job to like people and help them. But an anguished John confesses to Hugh that he doesn't like anybody, that he pretty much can't stand the world except for Hugh and Helen, and in particular he loathes his parishioners and cringes whenever one approaches him with a problem.
  • Witchfinder Shadwell from Good Omens. He's described as hating all Southerners, and by inference, is standing on the North Pole.
  • The drill sergeant in Old Man's War has specific reasons why he hates all religions, all races, all sexual orientations, and clog dancers. He's actually a little worried when the main character doesn't conform to any of his hated groups, but cheerfully notes that by the end of standard training he'll certainly do something that gives the sergeant a reason to hate him personally.
  • Joseph Wambaugh's The Choirboys: Police officer Henry "Roscoe" Rules expresses a wish for a word as ugly as "nigger" that he can apply to all humanity, and his co-workers eventually come up with "scrotes," which Roscoe gleefully adopts. His egalitarian hatred is considered to be his one redeeming trait.
  • In Stuart M Kamisnky's Inspector Rostnikov series, the detective Emil Karpo is cold, detached, and a lot like a monk (and somewhat like Mr. Spock). When Rostnikov's wife meets Karpo, she thinks he's cold and distant towards her because she's Jewish. (As in the Monk example below, Karpo isn't misanthropic.)
  • Star Trek: Klingon Empire: Kurak despises her fellow officers on the Gorkon, but has no desire to join the mutiny against them, mostly due to hating the mutineers just as strongly. What she really hates is the Klingon Defense Force as a whole.
  • In the Spiral Arm series, Donovan considers this to be a positive trait of the Jehovans.
    Jehovans did not like Terrans, but Jehovans did not like anyone; and as long as they did not dislike Terrans more than anyone else, Donovan counted that as warm embrace.
  • Star Wars Legends:
  • In The First Law, Logen's Superpowered Evil Side the Bloody-Nine hates everyone in the entire world and wants nothing except to kill everyone in sight.
  • In the official novelization of X-Men, in an expanded version of Wolverine's dialogue with Storm ("At least I've chosen a side"), Wolverine states this about his usual attitude while saying Xavier's wiser-than-thou approach pisses him off.

    Live-Action TV 
  • House: Gregory House himself. He doesn't like clinic patients. ("I'm the only doctor forced to be here against his will...") He doesn't like the Patient of the Week (likely receives "The Reason You Suck" Speech before treatment is over). He doesn't like his staff. ("My staff are idiots.") He doesn't like his boss (insert sexist comment about her body). His Only Friend is more like his personal Butt-Monkey. He even hates himself.
    House: I'm branching out from self-loathing and self-destruction.
  • One episode of The Hughleys had Daryl go to trial because he (a black person) called his white subordinate an idiot about ten times, being so consistent said employee thought his verbal abuse was steeped in racism. His black subordinate testified that that was only half the times he was called an idiot by Daryl, showing he wasn't racist, just a Jerkass. Daryl acknowledging he was and apologizing convinced the subordinate to drop the lawsuit.
  • Kamen Rider Ex-Aid: The world mostly hates Taiga Hanaya so he is just returning the favor. In case he meets someone who doesn't detest him from the way off for some reason, he just makes something up to include them. It makes sense that the only person who hangs out with him is an equal opportunity offender, who spends most of her time badgering and manhandling him and goes out of her way to insult people regardless of whether they could reduce to her to mush or not.
  • Mrs Raven in My Hero (2000);
    Mrs. Raven: I hate Americans.
    George: You hate everyone, Mrs. Raven. You're very fair that way.
  • Prison officer Mackay in Porridge:
    Mackay: I am firm but fair. Remember I treat you all with equal contempt.
  • In the Mexico episode of Monk, Sharona explains to the Mexican authorities that Monk isn't racist against Mexicans — he thinks all people are dirty. Same problem happened with Monk wiping his hand after shaking hands with a black man.
  • The West Wing:
    Sam: You know, Toby... You could afford to buy one of those now if you want!
    Toby: There's literally no one in the world that I don't hate right now.
  • Dr Cox from Scrubs. And Kelso. And the Janitor.
    Dr. Kelso: Nonsense! People are bastard-coated bastards with bastard filling!
    Dr. Cox: That's what I said!
  • Jack O'Neill of Stargate SG-1 is pretty dismissive of those he doesn't trust. Couple this with his love of irritating people he doesn't like and you get a milder version of this trope. Dr. Jackson tries to reassure a Russian soldier in one episode that O'Neill's not picking on him because he's Russian, that he's an "equal opportunity offender". (Of course, in that case, it's made pretty clear that O'Neill still has a problem bringing himself to trust Russians.)
  • Star Trek: The Next Generation/Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Worf. He glares at everyone, hates everything, the only exceptions to this rule seem to be his adoptive parents, his son, Troi and Jadzia.
  • April Ludgate in Parks and Recreation is a jerk, but she makes it clear she feels that way about everyone:
    April: [Dogs] should be rewarded for not being people. I hate people.
  • RuPaul's Drag Race winner Bianca Del Rio's main selling point was that she insulted everyone equally. She also had zero patience with her competitors' interpersonal drama and antics, cracking that their poor performances only just made her look good in comparison. When the show aired its recap episode, its top fight was simply "Bianca Del Rio vs. the world."
  • All in the Family: Archie Bunker is probably, if not the Trope Codifier, certainly a very well-known embodiment of this trope.
  • That '70s Show:
    • Red Forman sees practically everyone around him except for his wife as a dumbass and constantly threatens them with a foot up the ass, his signature threat.
    • To a lesser extent Hyde, who is very anti-social and rarely expresses warmth to others.
  • Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street openly admits to hating anything "nice" except for children (the only people that he can actually act nice to without facing ridicule from other Grouches), and Maria, although he'd never admit it outright.
  • Out of this World (1962): "Little Lost Robot": Dr Calvin admits that the only reason she's accepting the job of finding which robot got himself lost is that she likes robots more than human beings.
  • ER's Dr. Jerk Romano is, as one character aptly described him, "a racist, sexist, elitist jackass", as well as homophobic. However, most of his scenes make it quite clear that he doesn't have much use for white/male/heterosexual people either.
  • Hodgins in Bones admits in season 4 that he hates everyone and Sweets explains it as misanthropic tendencies. He uses hating everyone as a coping method, both when Zack is revealed as a serial killerís apprentice and institutionalized and when heís left a paraplegic by a bomb. Heís the kind of guy, though, that still functions in society and can use therapy and medication to help, and heís not an over-the-top jerk regardless.
  • Top Gear (UK): Jeremy Clarkson says a lot of horrible jokes about various groups but the saving grace is nobody really escapes it. The only people who didn't get mocked during his tenure were the Vietnamese: apart from a lighthearted dog-eating joke (which was later nullified by the men eating more exotic stuff like snake hearts while over there), it's poor taste even for him to poke fun at a people after you've met a man who permanently went deaf after a battle with the Americans in 1968 and has to write in the sand to explain his life story.
  • S Club 7:
    • None of the villains, even the sheriff in the Back To The 50s, single out a member of band based on race and religion. They were targeted by a villain because of their ability to foil an evil plot and inspiring others to stand-up for themselves... nothing more.
    • In the Back To The 50s film, Bradley would've been an easy target because he's black and attacks against blacks by whites in the 50s were common, yet the Rockets and the sheriff only targeted him because he was willing to stand up for himself and his friends. Paul and Jo, who are WHITE, were also jailed along with Bradley and Rachel, who's Eurasian. Tina is half Indo-Guyanese, while Jon and Hannah were also white and they were fair game!

    Music 
  • GWAR: "And we'll kill everything"
  • The Kingston Trio, "They're Rioting in Africa":
    The whole world is teeming with unhappy souls:
    The French hate the Germans; the Germans hate the Poles;
    Italians hate Yugoslavs; South Africans hate the Dutch...
    (solo) ...and I don't like
    anybody very much!
  • Type O Negative
    • "We Hate Everyone"
      Some would say that we're biased, accusations that we are racist.
      Well, shit... shit... shit comes in all hues, now this means you.
      'cause things ain't always like they seem... like they seem. We hate everyone.
  • Also invoked in Peter Steele's previous band Carnivore with the aptly-titled "Race War"
    Black against White
    Yellow versus Red
    The fighting won't stop
    Until we're all, until we're all dead!
    ...
    Muslims against Christians
    And the Arabs versus Jews
    The Catholics and Protestants
    No one wins - we all lose!
  • Marilyn Manson
    • "The Beautiful People":
      There's no time to discriminate
      Hate every motherfucker that's in your way
    • From the same album (Antichrist Superstar), in "1996":
      I can't believe in things that don't believe in me
      Now here's your turn to see misanthropy
  • Go Set Go's "I Hate Everyone" is Exactly What It Says on the Tin. The chorus says it all.
    All the people that I know
    I hate you all
    And all the people that I don't
    I hate you all
  • Say Anything's "Hate Everyone" blends this with Humans Are Bastards throughout the whole song.
    Did you know that there are people in the world
    annoyed with all the other people in the world,
    and of all these angry people in the world
    I am the angriest boy.
    note 
  • Chimaira — "Pure Hatred":
    The vicious cycle has not changed!
    My times spent rearranged!

    Mother fuck it all!
    I can't stand this!
    Remember when I said
    Everyone makes me sick?!
    Well nothing has changed!


    (chorus):
    I hate (I hate) everyone!
    I hate (I hate) everyone!


    The vicious cycle still remains!
    Constant cluster fuck, bloodstains!
    Ignorance, you kill for God!
    Expression not allowed!

    You fucked it up!
    With your mother fuckin' games!
    Remember when I said
    I was so ashamed?!
    Well nothing has changed!

    I hate (I hate) everyone!
    I hate (I hate) everyone!

    (I hate)
    (I hate)
  • Dethklok prove this with Fan Song, which is a song dedicated to all their fans... And how much they hate them and wish they would die. You can tell it solely by the fact that the word "hate" is used a total of 48 times, along with the fact that "die" is used a total of 31 times. Yet, fans still continue to buy their records...
  • Slayer's "Disciple"
    I hate everyone equally
    You can't tear that out of me
    No segregation, separation
    Just me in my world of enemies
  • Skrillex's "Kill Everybody"
    I want to kill everybody in the world
    I want to eat your heart
  • German singer Marius Müller-Westernhagen had "Herr D.", who not only hates everyone but also everything. (Germans are thorough.)
  • Nautilus Pompilius: The lyrical hero of the song "People" hates all people equally, including babies, people who already died and himself.

    Pro Wrestling 
  • Bad News Brown. He hated everyone, would attack opponents before the bell, and TWICE walked out on his own team at Survivor Series.
  • During the run of his Jerk Jock Power Stable the Varsity Club, Kevin Sullivan cut a promo where he said, "We don't like ANYONE!"
  • Raven hated everyone, including his minions and his love interests.
  • "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. When he first took on the persona, he was a heel that hated everyone equally - and fans loved him for it. Even after he became a face, it was not uncommon for him to give a Stone Cold Stunner to other faces - and would still get cheered for it. His vests and t-shirts still bore the acronym "DTA", which stands for Don't Trust Anybody.
  • Muerte Cibernética took on this attitude after he was released from hell a El Mesias, and he's watching you!
  • Randy Orton. He was as susceptible to attacking heels as he was to faces. In fact, the only thing about his character that changed after his HeelĖFace Turn in 2010 is who he attacked more often and who he was teamed up with for tag team matches, otherwise he was still the same sadistic psychopath he's always been.
  • Brock Lesnar. Paul Heyman once said of his client, "When Brock Lesnar walked through that curtain last night, nobody gave him a standing ovation. Everybody looked down. You know why? Because nobody respected Brock Lesnar, which is fine for Brock because Brock respects nobody. He barely tolerates me."
  • Even heels who have a specific bias will tend to hate all faces - if not necessarily equally, then at least enough to make them more generically nasty - both in the interest of political correctness and (within Kayfabe) simply For the Evulz. Zeb Colter, Jack Swagger's manager, spent most of his time picking on Mexicans for (supposedly) being illegal immigrants, but would also target the Punjabi Great Khali (another foreigner) on occasion - and at the most recent WrestleMania held in New York, lashed out at every ethnic group in the city whose ancestors spoke a language other than English, including many ethnic whites. He also despised Zack Ryder (whose ethnicity is pretty indeterminate) for excessively styling his hair.
  • Scott Steiner can't go five seconds without going on a tirade against everything and everyone in and out of sight. He even said himself "In that ring, I have no friends!"

    Radio 

    Roleplay 
  • Zach Jamis in Survival of the Fittest hates everyone and everything in the world as much as the next thing he hates... except for his best friend Sammy Franklin.
  • Rhett McConnell (aka "Bench Guy") on NoPixel just wants to spend his days sitting by himself on his bench in front of Burger Shot, hates literally everyone in the city (aside from Sherry Paie, who he tolerates), and angrily tells everyone to "fuck off" whenever they try to talk to him. Naturally, everyone — from Sheriff Pred to OTT — does what they can to annoy the hell out of him, because it's really funny.

  • In Dungeons & Dragons, the derro god Diirinka is said to care for nobody, not even himself (possibly because he still feels guilty for betraying his brother).
  • Inverted, oddly enough, in Warhammer 40,000 with the Orks; these hulking green monstrosities from space, who only live to fight and kill, actually hate nobody. They're just absurdly obsessed with combat and have no concept of peace, and will just as easily fight each other as much as anyone else — the only thing important to Orks is that their enemies are good at fighting and providing a challenge, so them fighting you constantly pretty much means they like you (Orks do not have a term for friend, but they do have one for "favorite enemy"). In a setting where hating everyone not your race (and even then...) is standard policy, Orks are the weird exception.
  • Warhammer Fantasy, meanwhile, has the Orc special character Grimgor Ironhide and his special rule of Hatred (Everybody!). In a universe overflowing with Fantastic Racism Grimgor doesn't discriminate; he gets the Hatred special rule against anything that picks a fight with him.
    • Some Dark Elf special characters, such as Malus Darkblade, have the Eternal Hatred rule, which is a souped-up version of Hatred (Everybody!); not only does it grant Hatred towards every other unit in the game, but it lasts for the entire combat (Hatred normally ends after a single round of melee combat).
  • And of course, in both Warhammer franchises, there's Khorne. Like the adage says, Khorne cares not from whence the blood flows, so long as it flows.
  • Fenrir in Mythender is the embodiment of hatred. He hates the Myths for being oppressive, and hates humans for being weak enough to be oppressed. He hates the universe for being vile enough to contain Myths and humans. He hates himself for falling to Corruption and becoming a Myth in the first place. The only thing he doesn't hate is Mythenders, and that only because he considers them too ultimately irrelevant to hate.

  • Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition adds Dorn Il Khan, a Half-Orc who is the least bigoted character in the games yet. Everybody else seems to have something against a faction or race or even just a profession. Dorn seems to hate everybody equally, regardless of race, alignment, or faction, since soon after meeting you he'll accuse everybody in your group of potentially being a traitor, but he'll never turn on anybody in particular.
  • In Dwarf Fortress, this is a trait of the entire goblin race. While every individual creature has a unique personality, every single goblin is hard-coded to have at least above average hatred, violence, cruelty, and tolerance (where tolerance is defined as "acceptance of those with different appearances and lifestyle"). The practical upshot of this is that while they are a race of backstabbing, spiteful and murderous bastards, they treat the children they kidnap and indoctrinate into their culture no worse than any natural-born goblin, though since that culture is a kraterocratic hellhole where everything is allowed if you're strong enough that bar's low enough you'd need dwarves to find it underground.
  • Elohim Eternal: The Babel Code: The Final Boss, Anat, is willing to sacrifice both Idinites and Cainites to get revenge on the Kosmokraters, and believe neither species should have been created. This is because her husband, Nimrod, was one of Cain's followers, only for the rest of the Cainites to betray and kill Cain's group.
  • Referenced on a radio talk show in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. "I am not a racist. I hate everybody irrelevant of other issues, but I especially hate Yankees!" ("Yankees", in this context, being anybody from north of the state of Florida, which is also pretty generalised.)
  • Francis from Left 4 Dead hates you, and doctors and lawyers and vampires. But not his vest.
  • Herbert Moon of Red Dead Redemption (the owner of the Armadillo general store) appears to be simply anti-Semitic in the poker game. However, Undead Nightmare reveals that he hates everyone that isn't Herbert Moon. It's just that in the grand conspiracy theory in his head, Jews are in charge of the rest of the bastards.
  • In the trial scene of Neverwinter Nights, one of the jury members tells you that "I guess they thought I'd be unbiased since I hate all races, colors, and creeds equally."
  • Subverted with Hazama/Yuuki Terumi in BlazBlue... Yeah, he hates vampires, beastkin, witches, werewolves, men, women, everyone and everything. But the reasons why he hates everyone are so petty and dickish and offensive and egotistical and personal and politically incorrect that all sense of okay-ness goes flying out the window. There's just about one thing he doesn't hate... and that's himself. Sheesh.
  • Innoruuk the God of hate from EverQuest; he tries to kill even his own worshippers if they enter his plane.
  • Inverted with Sophia Lamb in BioShock 2. She claims to love everyone equally, which...doesn't make as much difference as you'd expect. Because everyone holds equal value to her, they're as expendable as if she hated the guts of every man, woman, and child in Rapture. Perhaps even more so. In fact, her entire goal is to kill everyone and combine all of their consciousnesses into a single Mind Hive.
  • Not Important of Hatred. He's on a genocidal rampage to kill every single person he sees, regardless of race or sex.
  • One of the Dude's humorous commentaries in Postal (in this case when he kills minorities) is that nobody should take him as a bigot, he kills all races equally.
  • Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords: The Spiteful A.I. doesn't discriminate between the player and the other AI. If the player is on the verge of completing a Curb Stomp War and wiping out one AI, it might surrender to another AI just to spite you. Or if one AI is curbstomping another, the loser might surrender to you to spite them.
  • In South Park: The Fractured but Whole, there is a group of rednecks who repeatedly show up to kick your ass because of your race, sexuality, religion, and gender identity. No matter what it is. Even if it's the same as theirs. In a later mission they start arguing whether they hate you for paying Mexicans or for your racial identity, only to settle for both.
  • Kled has every single champion (besides his mount and friend Skaarl) in League of Legends listed as an enemy on his bio page...including HIMSELF. He also makes it clear in several of his quotes that he's going to kill the rest of his team after the match.
  • Dota 2: Living up to the other definition of "Troll", Troll Warlord is driven by his hatred of literally everyone and everything, to the point where even his lines for greeting and thanking allies are death threats, insults, or some other form of vitriol.
  • Touhou Project has Parsee, who is a literal Green-Eyed Monster whose entire life is built around jealousy. Even if you are literally worse off than her in every possible way, she'll still hate you because you're not as bitter about it.
  • Revenant from Apex Legends might as well embody this trope. He doesn't just hate the other Legends, he would kill all of them, given the chance. This is the character that makes Caustic look tame, not even Pathfinder nor poor Wattson get any sympathy from him. Yet since he's cursed to kill for an eternity, and having a shady group of individuals pulling your strings? Would you be very happy?

    Web Animation 
  • Zero Punctuation's Yahtzee styles himself this way as a self-described cynic and misanthrope. A female viewer who called him out for apparent misogyny received the reply that she was technically right in that he did hate women, but only because Yahtzee apparently hates people across the board.
  • Battle for Dream Island has Fanny, who hates absolutely everyone, including herself. This conversation with Clock proves it
    Clock: Fanny, why would you hate me? Iím just standing up for Teardrop.
    Fanny: Because self-improvement only occurs when we acknowledge that our own behaviors are far from perfect, and I dare say, worthy of hate.
  • Foamy the squirrel from Neurotically Yours.
  • Church on Red vs. Blue is a Jerk with a Heart of Gold and a Hair-Trigger Temper who hates everyone and everything (except Donut) most of the time, though the precise depth of hatred involved sometimes varies.
    Tucker: How do you feel?
    Church: Like running over each and every one of you.
    Tucker: So, about like normal.
    Church: Pretty much, yeah.
  • If the Emperor Had a Text-to-Speech Device: Due to Skarbrand being a bottomless well of pure, concentrated and neverending anger, he absolutely despises everything and everyone that he can perceive or knows of. Some things he only hates slightly less than others, and this usually only means they get the axe later rather than sooner. It can also get him in a deadlock at times, such as when someone knocked on his door. He hated being outside and being inside, hating standing in the doorway only slightly less. Thus, he was stuck there for a while.

    Webcomics 
  • The Non-Adventures of Wonderella: As the page image points out, Wonderella once encountered a group that hates all colors. Which is quickly defeated when she points out that THEY are made up of all colors.
  • It's yet to be seen whether Bob the Crab from The Dugs- Baseball Comics likes anyone.
  • Dr. Lorna from Sluggy Freelance.
  • Mike of the Walkyverse, various webcomics all taking place in the same fictional canon.
  • Yuudai from Sakana claims that he's this, but it seems to be subverted since he adores his cat and seems to get along at least a little bit better with Taro than with everyone else, so he makes exceptions for some.
  • Davan (and most of the main cast, to a degree) from Something*Positive. When he's accused of being anti-Wiccan, his Wiccan friend Kim defends him thus:
    Kim: I know Davan would never single out a religion. If anything, his disdain is shared by everyone.
  • Baxter the squirrel from Catharsis:
    Remly: You know what your problem is? You just don't care.
    Baxter: No. My problem is that people expect me to care.
  • Norman the squirrel (does anyone notice a pattern here?) from Dragon Tails.
  • Sinfest:
  • Marion Sark in Spare Keys for Strange Doors generally just finds them irritating.
  • Discussed in Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal short story Bobby and the Gurg. Subverted when the Gurg declares that "white is best".
  • Homestuck:
    • Karkat is a subversion. He's short-tempered and insulting to everyone he interacts with, his fellow players, his love interest, and himself, the only exception being Kanaya. Deep down, that's just how Karkat is, and he really does care about his colleagues, in a Tsundere kind of way.
    • Spades Slick is a straighter example, being quick-tempered and rude towards everyone. This includes the people he actually likes or tolerates such as his fellow Midnight Crew members and Karkat, to the point that he greets Karkat by stabbing him. Horrifically deconstructed when his alternate universe self, Jack Noir, goes insane and becomes an Omnicidal Maniac who wants to kill everyone he meets.
    • Caliborn, originally a He-Man Woman Hater, considers it a major turning point on his quest to become "the ultimate champion" that he becomes this as well. Considering that Caliborn is the younger version of Lord English, an Omnicidal Maniac that even Jack Noir fears, he isn't far off the mark.
      Caliborn: I HAVE COMMITTED, THROUGH A PLEDGE OF PERSONAL BEAUTIFICATION. TO TRY DOING LESS MISOGYNY. AND START DOING MORE PROSOGYNY. IN FACT. I FUCKING LOVE SOGYNY! AND I WILL *F*I*G*H*T* ANYONE WHO DISAGREES FROM THAT.
  • Seen in a strip of A Softer World.
  • This comic, summed up as a man yelling "I hate everybody!" and a second man asking how he can hate people he doesn't know, introducing themselves, and the first man then immediately saying "Fuck you."
  • Invoked in Ennui GO!. The military police of Key Manati wear helmets with red-tinted lenses to increase aggression and prevent them from being able to tell the skin color of the people they're beating.
    Trainee: So... you WANT the MPs to give out random beatings?
    Trainer: Yes, so long as they're not motivated by prejudice.
  • The God of Evil Sithrak in Oglaf will torture everyone for all eternity in the afterlife, worshippers and heathens alike. This is actually the main sell of his church since they find it very liberating to know that there is no higher moral judgement since they will all suffer for eternity anyway. When one of said worshippers dies, it turns out that Sithrak is actually a decent guy and the "suffering without end" stuff was some teenage emo poetry that he grew out of. He even returns the worshipper to life so he can set the record straight. Unfortunately, the worshipper thinks Sithrak is so evil that he even emotionally manipulates them when they're alive.

    Web Original 
  • Evil Overlord List Cellblock A #171: "I will be an equal-opportunity despot and make sure that terror and oppression is distributed fairly..."
  • SF Debris:
    • As much as he likes to joke that he's this, Chuck really falls more under Equal-Opportunity Offender. After all, he only really displays hatred toward characters that have it coming, though he's willing to make jabs at pretty much anything.
    • In the funhouse mirror Trek universe he shows, Picard is almost this, except that he hates children a bit more than everyone else.
  • Grumpy Cat
  • The Bad Webcomics Wiki had this to say during a negative review of Sinfest:
    Oddguy: Let me start by saying that neither me nor this site have anything against feminism. Although we have criticized festering turds like Gyno-Star for their moronic brow-beating, we have also mocked the call to femicide that is Least I Could Do. We are as fast to insult the religious as we are the atheistic, the left, the right, and everyone in between. We don't take sides, we hate you all.

  • Colonel Stinkmeaner from The Boondocks is a misanthropic asshole who proclaims a hatred for everyone (but especially other black people).
    Stinkmeaner: "Yeah. I mean, I hate everyone in general, but black people especially."
    • The only people he tolerates are his companions in the "Hateocracy", with Huey remarking that while they did in fact hate each other, they just hated other people more.
  • On South Park, Eric Cartman hates and manipulates everyone around him, anyone from Jews (especially Kyle Broflovski) to poor people.
  • On Family Guy, Brian ran into a "multiracial TV gang including white guys". One of the thugs exclaimed, "Let's beat him up...but not because of his color, because that doesn't matter to us."
  • Mandy from The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy.
  • Grouchy Smurf from The Smurfs (1981). Although he does have a soft side, mainly to Baby Smurf.)
  • Parodied on The Simpsons when Homer offers this trope to Bart as a way to get out of jury duty. The trick is to say that you're "prejudiced against all races".
    • Willie has it out for all ethnicities, including his own.
      Willie: Damn Scots! They ruined Scotland!
  • On Futurama, the alien newscaster Morbo hates humans, calling them "puny", "insignificant", and other insults (which his human co-host Linda oddly doesn't seem to mind), but he seems to hate and insult robots, other aliens, and pretty much everyone, even his wife. The only friends he seems to have are Richard Nixonnote  and maybe Linda ("friend" may be an overstatement, but he does usually address her by name instead of as "pitiful human female").
    • Also Bender, who tells his Only Friend Fry in the third episode, that his entire philosophy is that everyone is a Jerkass and he acts like such to everyone, including Fry and the few other people that could be called his friends, only showing he cares about them in very rare moments.
  • Lemongrab of the show Adventure Time doesn't like anybody. His sour personality is the result of a failed science experiment that occurred during his creation in a laboratory. Unless you completely avoid him, don't talk to him, don't look at him, and don't come anywhere NEAR him, then you're okay. But if you do so much as ask "Who are you talking to?" when he goes into one of his near-psychotic screaming rants, then he'll send your ass to the dungeon for the rest of your life. Even if you're his MOTHER. He just doesn't care.
  • G. Gordon Godfrey in Young Justice (2010) hates superheroes with a passion. However, when the Reach showed up, he suddenly proclaimed them to be wonderful, to a suspicious amount. Turns out as soon as the Reach screwed up at all, he turned on them as well. Then again, as the series finale revealed, G. Gordon Godfrey is Glorious Godfrey, servant of Darkseid and all this time, he'd been working with the Light.
  • As declared by Dethklok in "Diversityklok":
    Nathan Explosion: We don't give a *guitar riff* what color our fans are, cause we don't give a fuck about our fans."
  • Mr. Sunshine from CatDog hates everyone around him, giving them a Death Glare is justify this. He particularly hates Cat the most.
  • Dan in Dan Vs. is an anti-social foul-tempered Jerkass, who lashes out against anyone or thing that does even the littlest thing to inconvenience him (which as he is a Cosmic Play Thing, means most of the world) and constantly takes advantage of his Only Friend Chris, although he does occasionally show he cares about Chris and his few other morality pets, those moments are few and far between. That said, he is, for the most part, content to keep to himself, if not for the fact that he lives in a world that seems to be out to get him.
  • Squidward from SpongeBob SquarePants has admitted on a few occasions that he hates everyone in Bikini Bottom ("Karate Choppers", "No Hat For Pat", "Sponge-Cano!" and "SpongeBob's Place"). This stems from the fact that he constantly has to deal with the annoying antics of his neighbors SpongeBob and Patrick, works at a low minimum wage job where his boss is a cheapskate and most customers are entitled morons (and one of his annoying neighbors is also his co-worker), and is on the receiving end of torment in many, many episodes.
  • Sram Demigoddess Toxine from Wakfu is first introduced as a Token Evil Teammate of the ambiguously-aligned Siblings, but eventually reveals herself when she turns on her own allies that she really hates everyone around her, no matter who they are, and will gladly kill them. She gives the priority to those people who "look down on her" or humiliated her too.
  • The immensely Cranky Neighbor and Unstoppable Rage Old Lady Munson from Kid vs. Kat hates everyone especially to Burtonburgers especially to Coop and Burt (Coop's dad), well except for Millie.

    Real Life 
  • One semi-joke about some real-life militaries is that race stops mattering in boot camp because everyone becomes equally subhuman - a recruit that exists to be tormented by a Drill Sergeant Nasty.
    "The Marines don't have any race problems. They treat everybody like they're black." -Daniel James, Jr. note 
  • 4chan, which happily lobs slurs and insults at every minority in existence in equal measure, and also at one another.
