* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', Edwinna Elbert, Stewardess of the Ald-Ruhn Mages Guild Hall, fancies herself as one of Tamriel's top researchers of the extinct [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]], particularly their [[MechaMooks mechanical centurions]]. Even without counting the [[TheMagocracy mage lords]] of [[TheClan Great House]] [[EvilSorcerer Telvanni]] (who have had a ''[[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld thousand-plus year]]'' [[CantCatchUp head start]] in their Dwemer research but who also don't bother to share their research outside of their private circles), there are several others with greater knowledge of Dwemer technology in Morrowind alone. The Rat in the Pot, a pub right ''across the street'' from Edwinna's Guild Hall, is guarded by Dwemer [[SpiderMech spider centurions]] maintained by Estoril of the Thieves Guild. In the ''Tribunal'' expansion, one can meet Ignatius Flaccus in Mourhold who builds Dwemer centurions as a hobby for his warbot arena. With the ''Bloodmoon'' expansion installed, Louis Beauchamp, who stands ''right outside'' the Ald-Ruhn Mages Guild doorway, built his own Dwemer ''airship''.

* ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'': [[spoiler:In ''A Frozen Heart'', [[WellDoneSonGuy Despite Prince Hans']] best efforts to please his father, he still regarded all of his twelve older sons as superior to Hans, who actually seems to agree with this. Hans' brothers were more effective, more skilled and more capable of wooing eligible maidens quicker than he was. It's one of the driving factors for his plans in Arendelle, to prove his family wrong by claiming a throne more effectively by himself. And even after sullying the Westergaard name in Arendelle, Hans' father still coldly regards him as a [[DisappointedInYou disappointment in his eyes.]]]]

* Subvervted in ''Manga/Claymore'' by Teresa. She is the number 1 warrior of the organization then comes up a new recrue Priscilla who is very promising and is said to share Teresa's abilities. Other warriors say that she might be able to surpass Teresa one day given her potential and Teresa herself considers killing her before it happens for a brief moment. However when they fight, Teresa easily subdues her with only 10% of her yoki while Priscilla is in rage mode with 70% of her yoki. The final [[spoiler: cements Teresa 's indisputed status as the most powerful warrior to have ever lived]].
