* The ''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'' villain Mr. X joined Norman Osborn's incarnation of the {{Thunderbolts}} because just killing all comers in underground fighting matches in Madripoor wasn't challenging enough anymore. He was enthusiastic about invading Asgard because he wanted to prove he could kill a god with his bare hands. [[spoiler:He could, and he did.]]

* MarvelComics' Moving Shadow is, at the very least, equal in skill to his brother, Shang-Chi, the Master of Kung Fu. Unlike his brother, however, he never learned the path of peace, and is controlled by his anger. He's also straight up evil, and wants to kill (and, more importantly, defeat) his brother more than anything.

* MuhammadAli. Subverted though, thanks to his many PetTheDog moments. And the fact, [[AwesomeEgo that he was just that good.]]

* Apollo Creed from the ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' series fits this trope to a T.

* Apollo Creed from the ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' series fits this trope to a T. Subverted slightly in that while the guy does have an ego it's partly played up in the ring as part of his flashy acts and openings, plus he gets plenty of PetTheDog moments.

*** Like Whitebeard Lucci is more than justified in his belief though: until Luffy comes along Lucci had never lost and was (short of the Admirals) the strongest agent the World Government had (and had more operational freedom). Had Luffy not been a {{Determinator}} Lucci would have beaten him and gone to massacre his crew and take Robin back.

** Tien is actually a subversion. His arrogance comes from believing he has a better master and Goku doesn't fight or train seriously but when he finds out Crane was having Chiaotzu use his powers on Goku to throw the fight he [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules demands his friend stop]] [[HonorBeforeReason and gives Goku a free shot to try and make the fight fair again]]. When he wins by virtue of Goku hitting a car seconds before he hit the ground he tries to request a rematch as he felt that the victory should be Goku's.

** Liu Kang gives shades of this in some of his pre-match intros in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX''. [[spoiler:The fact that he is a revenant (following his death at Raiden's hands) may account for why he is arrogant and egotistical; it allows him to show off the anger he harbors towards Raiden following the events of ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9''. He even feels jealous when Johnny Cage of all people takes the spot as Raiden's champion.]]

*** This intro example with Jacqui is a good example of his arrogance:
-->'''Jacqui Briggs:''' From "champ" to "chump".\\
'''Liu Kang:''' You will respect me!\\
'''Jacqui Briggs:''' Were you champion of the whiners?

* Mordred in the 1998 miniseries ''{{Series/Merlin|1998}}''. The first we see of him is practicing archery with a group of servants standing with apples on their heads. "If you gentleman don't stop trembling, I might miss and kill you all!"
