* Ryoki Tachibana from the manga ''HotGimmick''. Although he's obsessed with Hatsumi he's usually far too up himself to ever do anything as pointless as care about her. His response to most of her (considerable) problems is "forget it, just focus on me".

* [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Miyu Greer]] and [[EnfanteTerrible Alyssa Searrs]] from ''MaiHiME'' have a variation of this, in that they believe it's all about ''them'': they believe that no bond could possibly be stronger than the one they share with each other, and as a consequence of this, they have no problem with hurting other people for the sake of their syndicate's UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans plans. When ''they'' are the ones being wronged, though, they lament the injustice of it all.

** From the follow-up series, ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'', Tomoe epitomizes this. Her main motivation for committing evil deeds is in order to get closer to her long-time crush, only willing to follow the rules [[spoiler:(apart from facilitating attempted rape and murder)]] so long as she benefits from it. Even when she's offered to become one of the BigBad's soldiers, she isn't as much interested in serving him as she is in using her new-found abilities to impress Shizuru and crush her rivals.

Mac Guffin Girl is no longer a trope.
* In ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'', Keima comes to the conclusion that the {{MacGuffin Girl}}s he's seeking are not just girls he's met in the past, but specifically those closest to him (a childhood friend and girls in the same class and/or grade level). He goes so far as to suggest that finding these girls is the reason he was chosen as a spirit hunter in the first place. Narcissistic as it sounds, however, events have so far supported his hypothesis.

** It would also seem that Mello cares ''far'' more about besting Near [[PunchClockHero than he does about actually bringing Kira to justice.]]

* In ''SaintBeast'', Zeus intends to lead all the angels along the path of righteousness and anyone who is impure is an affront to his ideal world. [[DisproportionateRetribution He usually reconciles this by purging them out of existence]].

* Claw from ''KimbaTheWhiteLion''. The main reason he wants to take over The Kingdom of the White Lions is so that he could do whatever he wants. * From ''LiarGame'', Yokoya only cared about benefitting himself. He doesn't care if his own teammates who allied with him get money or if they go further into debt.

** Nao is also purely motivated by self-interest in both the manga and anime. In the anime, she uses her powers to exact revenge on men for [[spoiler:the robbery that killed her father and left her mother comatose]], and later, on those who she blames for [[spoiler:her [[EyeScream losing her eye]].]] In [[Manga/{{Mai-HiME}} the manga]], she mainly goes along with the fight against the Orphans so that she can break rules without being held accountable.

* Vegeta from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' certainly fits, specifically around the Androids/Cell arc. [[DesignatedHero He was technically on the good guys side]], so a few guys would find his attitude irritating. Even ''Bulma'', who had a child with Vegeta, found his personality grating, but she had a whole 7 years to deal with that later.

* Vegeta from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' certainly fits, specifically around the Androids/Cell arc. [[DesignatedHero arc, where he's so confident that he's invincible and could ''easily'' beat Cell no matter how strong he gets that he ''lets'' Cell absorb Android 18 and become perfect purely to stroke his own ego... only to lose pathetically against Perfect Cell, who even mocks him for his arrogance and selfishness. He returns to it again in the Buu Saga, where he forsakes his wife and son and allows Babidi to turn him into a Majin just so he could have the power to beat Goku; in this case, Vegeta was technically on the good guys side]], fully aware that doing so a few guys would find his attitude irritating. Even ''Bulma'', who had a child with Vegeta, found his personality grating, unleash [[EldritchAbomination Majin Buu]] upon the world, but she had a whole 7 years to deal with he was so fixated on being better than Goku that later.he didn't ''care''.

* ''HoneyHunt'' has the protagonists (Yura) famous celebrity parents, Yukari and Takayuki. But especially Yukari who is hardly at home for her daughter and is very selfish. In all of her interviews she lies and says that she and Yura are close and spend much time together as a result of Takayuki being abroad so often, when in reality she is just as cold and distant as Takayuki. Also, immediately after showing up after being away from home for about a half a month, Yukari coldly announces that she and Takayuki are getting divorced before telling Yura that she can go wherever she wants. Also, while Takayuki was having an affair she was having one of her own with Yura's neighbor and crush, Shinsuke. When Yura finds out about the affair Yukari's response is to smile, declare that Shinsuke likes her more than Yura, that she's going to allow Shinsuke to live with her in a mansion she had bought, and that Takayuki had a baby with his mistress so neither he nor Yukari will have time to look after Yura anymore. She then demands that Yura leave the house. It's eventually revealed that she and her husband were only together for the sake of their careers and their images, they didn't love each other. The two of them even agreed on a rule with each other that they would stay married as long as they hide their own adulterous affairs. After she decided to divorce Takayuki because the press found out about his affair, however, it is shown that she has no intentions of taking care of Yura and merely cared about repairing her image in the eyes of the public because they had originally thought she was the "ideal mom". Seriously, poor kid.
