* Lina Inverse in most incarnations of ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}''; while she does take the time to help others (and save the lives of many if necessary), the true reason she often falls into grand adventures in the first place is so she can acquire money among other things, and will manipulate/leave behind her companions for her own sake. Her [[{{Gluttony}} greed]] is immense - in one NonSerialMovie, she destroys a restaurant because she loses the sardine they offered her - ''which she stepped on herself.''

* Although it seems doubtful, the Huckebein family in ''MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'' also show these symptoms. Every single page in each chapter, they seemed to indicate to readers that they were superior in every way. So far as they dominate the whole story.

Added DiffLines:

* Ryuko from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' suffers from this trope to an extent. Having grown up with no love from a {{parent|al abandonment}} or {{friend|less background}} caused her to develop a self-centered mindset, especially when dealing with her revenge quest. The negative effects of this are shown when [[spoiler:it's revealed that she's part-Life Fiber]]. She completely ignores what others think of her (including Senketsu, who's essentially a bird of a feather to her regarding her dilemma), and is so consumed by [[IAmAMonster her negative opinion of herself]] that she decides to face the BigBad all by herself, with [[BrainwashedAndCrazy very]] [[FaceHeelTurn bad]] [[SanitySlippage results]].

* 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.

* 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.
