* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': [[TheBrute Mercury Black]] is the prime candidate for this trope. Like Cinder, he has a smug smirk on his face each and every time he approaches combat, and constantly shows the skill to back it up, fighting [[TheAce Pyrrha]] to a standstill and beating down both [[BoisterousBruiser Yang]] and [[MightyGlacier Yatsuhashi]]. And, like Cinder, [[HellYesMoment any time]] he ''[[FreezeFrameBonus does]]'' lose his cool ends up being hilarious.

* ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'': Johnny Cage is at his douchiest best in the reboot, and this is the game that turned him around into a huge EnsembleDarkhorse. His massively inflated ego that nonetheless hides a heart of solid gold lends him to several hilarious moments, and in the sequel, he backs up the bravado by embarrasing none other than ''[spoiler: Shinnok]''.

* Sesshomaru from ''Manga/InuYasha'' has an enormous ego, and remains one of the most popular characters.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'':
** The fandom does not appear to mind Jack Rakan's self-aggrandizing statements about his power and abilities (To quote him, "I have no weaknesses!") - probably because he more or less lives up to his claims, and then some. [[spoiler:It eventually takes using the power of a veritably-RealityWarping MacGuffin to put him down by [[CessationOfExistence "rewriting" him out of existence]] outright... and ''he still manages to come back from '''that'''''.]] The man is a MemeticBadass for a reason.
** Evangeline [=McDowell=] has an ego rivaling Jack Rakan, boasting how she is the most powerful and [[CardCarryingVillain evil monster in the world]]. [[NobleDemon Minus the evil]], she's right on the money, in the shows LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, only about three, including Jack, have any chance of beating her.
* Prussia from ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' actually has an ImageSong called "My Song That Is Written By Me, For Me" that is as much of an ego trip as it sounds. He's one of the biggest {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s in the fandom.
* ''Manga/SoulEater'':
** Black Star in all his [[LargeHam hamminess]]. His first appearance almost pisses off the whole fanbase, but just moments later, he makes us regret it.
** ''FOOL''! '''[[EnsembleDarkhorse Excalibur]]''''s legend began in the twelfth century! The guy is so arrogant that even characters who take being around Black Star can't stand him, and it's hilarious.

''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'': At least a couple characters who take fit this trope, with [[spoiler: the Rail Tracer]] being around Black Star can't stand him, one of the most noteworthy.

and it's hilarious.quite justifiably. He proclaims himself "the man who makes miracles", and that he (single-handedly) will "destroy the world and make it anew". Why does he come across as a MagnificentBastard rather than a [[SuicidalOverconfidence suicidally overconfident]] SmugSnake? Because his arrogance is, to a large extent, justified.
* ''Manga/DeathNote'': Light Yagami, [[AGodAmI the God of the New World]]. Also more subtly, L, who is the world's [[spoiler:[[ItMakesSenseInContext top three]]]] greatest detective[[spoiler:s]], and has his own L screensaver.



** Goku as a kid. He had no problem bragging about how powerful he was and allow his opponents to hit him just show that it had no effect on him. And the audience enjoyed it since he was a ShowyInvincibleHero for almost half of the original ''Dragon Ball''. This is DownPlayed as an adult, but it still pops up at times. Like after becoming a Super Saiyan, Goku taunted and mocked Frieza about losing to a monkey. He even allows Frieza to power up to his max just to show that he ''never'' had a chance. And he succeeded.

And he succeeded.succeeded.
* ''Anime/DuelMasters'': [[TheRival Kokujo]] never misses an opportunity to remind everyone that he is an "Evil ''Genius''" (That's '''Genius''', [[InsistentTerminology not Evil Maniac]]). [[MagnificentBastard He more than lives up to this claim.]]
* ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya'': Gilgamesh (or just 'Gil'). He's still full of himself, but he's now a shota from the get-go. The audience of the ''Fate'' franchise obviously loves him.
** Rider from Fate/Zero seriously believes he can convince everyone else involved in the Grail War to become his new army and help him conquer the world. It never occurs to him that anyone would object to being his subject even when its pointed out that the other Servants include Kings and Demigods.
* ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'': Pravda's commander Katyusha. She's extremely full of herself, but is a good enough strategist to back up her boasting. She's also incredibly beloved by the fans.
* ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure'': [[ColonelBadass Oresky]]. In just his first episode, he [[NoIndoorVoice loudly]] and [[LargeHam proudly]] [[ShamelessSelfPromoter advertised his fan club]] in front of an IntrepidReporter. He quickly backs it up by proving to be quite the WakeUpCallBoss for [[MagicalGirlWarrior Cures]] [[SupportingProtagonist Lovely]] and [[TheHero Princess]] by being smart enough to create not one MonsterOfTheWeek, but [[spoiler:'''two''' of them from '''four''' InnocentBystanders, with one of them kept back for an ambush]]! It got so bad for our main duo that [[spoiler:[[AloofAlly Cure Fortune]] had to step in and deliver a CurbStompBattle]]! There's a ''reason'' why his fanclub transcends the FourthWall.
* ''Manga/InuYasha'': Sesshomaru has an enormous ego, and remains one of the most popular characters.
* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'': Dio Brando is a good contender for the biggest {{Jerkass}} in manga history, and [[ItAmusedMe it]] [[KickTheDog shows]]... but he's so {{char|m person}}ismatic, [[DracoInLeatherPants it doe]][[EvilIsCool sn't really]] [[FountainOfMemes matter]].

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE'': Woolf Enneacle. Arrogant? Check. Badass? Also check. "A key component of the G-Exes' superior abilities is that '''I'm''' its pilot!"
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** Naruto himself brilliantly inverted this. Initially viewed by both characters and fans as an annoying, arrogant, loud NinjaBrat, he begins to win us over when we see both how much stronger he gets over the course of the series, and how much of an underdog he's viewed as by his peers who don't know of his strength. Actually, he may be a rare heroic example of this. He's still loud, overconfident, arrogant, overbearing, and quite insensitive at times, yet fans love him because he now has the strength to back up his boasts and is still a "good guy". Naruto is still fixated on proving that he's better than Sasuke and making him acknowledge his awesomeness; is more concerned with Sasuke wanting to steal the Hokage seat than his FaceHeelTurn; consistently insults and underestimates his enemies; acts like he's better than them because he has more allies; claims Sakura, a girl he knows is not in love with him, as his girlfriend right in front of Hinata despite knowing how she feels about him, etc.
** Meanwhile, somewhat averted with Sasuke, who has an arrogant ego, and both a superiority and inferiority complex. He quickly becomes a fan favorite due to his knowledge, ninja skills, and impressive battle tactics. But once Part II comes, fans slowly began to lose all respect for him as he became too intimidating and egotistical, while Naruto has lost his big ego because he doesn't need it anymore.



** Usopp is an interesting example in that he only has an ego [[MilesGloriosus if there's nothing bad happening]], and turns into a complete coward when something ''does'' go wrong...[[CowardlyLion while still kicking plenty of ass anyway.]] The fans love him for it.
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' has [[AntiHero Lelouch]] [[AntiVillain Lamperouge]]. At the time of writing, he provides the page image for the SmugSmiler trope, and quite justifiably.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'': Gary Oak. His whole fanbase is built up on how awesome he is and all of his achievements, most noticeably being the only known trainer in Kanto to have ten badges. ([[DontExplainTheJoke Kanto only has [[AntiHero Lelouch]] [[AntiVillain Lamperouge]]. At eight Gyms.]])

* ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'': Jack Skellington. All hail the Pumpkin King.



* Kai from ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3'' has one hell of an ego on him, constantly boasting about his accomplishments (and getting annoyed when they aren't recognized), along with having ''way'' too much fun in the villain role for his own good. The fact that he does all of this while still being very competent has made him quite endearing to the fandom.

Yet it's completely justified as he's responsible for many godly feats that allow regular humans to live good lives as they do.

* Jack Burton from ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina''. Ok, he may not be as badass as he thinks he is, in fact most of the time he's a dork. However his confidence, determination, fearlessness, and occasional moment of actual badassery (stabbing a guy with a knife while it's still in his boot, catching a knife that was being thrown at him and throwing it right back at the villain) make him a prime example.

* ''Literature/{{Beowulf}}'' is the antithesis of the HumbleHero and does not hesitate to brag about his superhuman feats in battle.
* Literature/HerculePoirot is smart. The smartest there is, he might say. And, regardless of how much you may think that he cannot possibly back up all of his conceited arrogance, you better believe he can back it up or he'll completely OutGambit you. It won't save you from being completely OutGambitted, mind you, but that way you may at least have some dignity left at the end of it... Creator/AgathaChristie herself [[CreatorBacklash considered killing off Poirot several times]], but every time she came up with a way to kill him off, she'd hear his voice in her head, berating her for thinking he'd not be smart enough to anticipate and foil her carefully laid out plans.
* ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'' features Sun Wukong, the Monkey King. He manages to go toe-to-toe with dragons, the Judges of Hell, and Heaven itself. And BOY does he brag about it.

* Klavier Gavin from ''VideoGame/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'' prides himself on his dual rockstar/prosecutor career, and loves the attention he gets from fans; during one witness testimony, the witness is staring at him (though more out of anxiety and confusion than admiration), and to Klavier, being stared at is business as usual. He's also a very popular character, [[EstrogenBrigade especially amongst female fans]]. It helps that despite his ego, he's one of the most competent, {{nice|Guy}}st, and least [[AmoralAttorney corrupt]] prosecutors in the series.
* [[DarkMessiah Kane]] from ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'' refers to himself as "a close second" to God. However, being a MagnificentBastard, he could make a case for that being official. Over the ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberium Tiberium]]'' series he's gone from "reports suggest that he's much older than he looks" to "he somehow survived being at ground zero of an [[KillSat Ion Cannon]] strike with nothing more than scarring" to "he doesn't age and can't be permanently killed, and it's not due to a trick like cloning."
* Dante from ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' is an egoistical DeadpanSnarker that will openly taunt the LegionsOfHell, and has taken them on more than once and come out none the worse for wear.



* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'':
** J'Zargo, your khajit classmate in the College of Winterhold. [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Arrogant]], [[KleptomaniacHero light-fingered]], and eager to solve any and all issues put before him with arcane destruction. But he's also funny, affable once you've earned his respect... and he lacks in a level cap, allowing him to keep up with even the awesome potential of the Dragonborn.
** Master Neloth in DLC expansion ''Dragonborn'' steals the show with his over-the-top haughtiness and magical experiments of dubious safety. He'll also go surprisingly hands-on for a [[TheMagocracy Telvanni mage-lord]] when attempting to find a MacGuffin with you.
* Caesar and Mr. House from ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''.
* ''VideoGame/FateExtra''
** There's the playable Saber, a.k.a. [[spoiler:[[GenderFlip Emperor Nero]]]]. She almost certainly has the biggest ego in the cast, and is beloved for it.
** Gilgamesh. The King of Heroes was included in Fate/Extra CCC for a reason, after all.
* Gilgamesh of the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series is one of the most popular characters, which is largely due to his [[BraggartBoss huge ego]]. InUniverse, it's sometimes portrayed as empty bragging and always with a healthy dose of humor, but for players, he's rarely a pushover, and sometimes he's among the {{Bonus Boss}}es.
* Lute in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' constantly goes on about what an amazing mage prodigy she is. [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration Her stats back her up on this.]]
* HK-47 from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', due to essentially being the ''Franchise/StarWars'' equivalent to [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Bender]].



* ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Street Fighter 2]]'''s Vega is about as narcissistic as you can get, but does have his fans.
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'': Groose starts out as a an amusing JerkJock, but through CharacterDevelopment, becomes Link's [[TheLancer Lancer]] after a particularly FunnyMoment. Both of these combined made him both an EnsembleDarkHorse ''and'' a MemeticBadass.

* Overlord Zetta from ''VideoGame/MakaiKingdom'' will proudly and [[LargeHam hammily]] boast that he's the "Most badass freakin' overlord in the Cosmos", and the fans love him for it.
* Sovereign from ''VideoGame/MassEffect1''. You get a grand total of one conversation with him in the game, which consists entirely of him bragging about himself and how [[spoiler:the Reapers will destroy galactic civilization]]. And it's quite one of the best moments of the games.
%%** In the sequels, Harbinger for the same reasons.
* ''VideoGame/ThePowerOfTheSun'': Pyrrhon the "self-proclaimed" Sun God from VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising is starting to become this. His Tumblr page is all about how awesome he is and why there can be no one as awesome as Pyrrhon.

* Gilgamesh of the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series is one of the most popular characters, which is largely due to his [[BraggartBoss huge ego]]. InUniverse, it's sometimes portrayed as empty bragging and always with a healthy dose of humor, but for players, he's rarely a pushover, and sometimes he's among the {{Bonus Boss}}es.
* [[DarkMessiah Kane]] from ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'' refers to himself as "a close second" to God. However, being a MagnificentBastard, he could make a case for that being official. Over the ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberium Tiberium]]'' series he's gone from "reports suggest that he's much older than he looks" to "he somehow survived being at ground zero of an [[KillSat Ion Cannon]] strike with nothing more than scarring" to "he doesn't age and can't be permanently killed, and it's not due to a trick like cloning."
* ''VideoGame/FateExtra''
** There's the playable Saber, a.k.a. [[spoiler:[[GenderFlip Emperor Nero]]]]. She almost certainly has the biggest ego in the cast, and is beloved for it.
** Gilgamesh. The King of Heroes was included in Fate/Extra CCC for a reason, after all.
* Caesar and Mr. House from ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'':
** Mima, an evil spirit from the early games, is a chronic liar who falsely claimed to be a deity while talking ''to'' the goddess of a demon world, yet she backs her arrogance up with the power to defeat said goddess. In the eyes of the fandom she can do stuff like the "[[https://youtu.be/vKFXhxVvysE?t=8m8s Twilight Spark]]" despite not possessing any similar attacks in the games.
** Also, Miko from later in the series. Known for making herself available just in case people feel they need an immortal GodEmperor to lead them to prosperity. But until then she'll just work on achieving [[EnlightenmentSuperpowers enlightenment]] and ascending bodily into heaven. Even the BossSubtitles seem to agree, labeling her the ''Almighty Taoist Ruler of the Universe''.
** There is also Marisa, one of the playable characters. A chronic liar [[note]]She lied right into the face of the highest-ranked judge of the underworld who ''accused her of lying too much''[[/note]], perpetual thief [[note]]books, especially, just ask Patchouli Knowledge[[/note]], snarky (just like Alice), loves explosions and superior firepower [[note]]like her trademark Masterspark (which she ''also'' stole, from Yuuka) and you can ask Nitori about that[[/note]] and ''has'' the power to back up her various claims like how she's the only person to rival Reimu when it comes to youkai hunting and incident solving. She's also directly related to Mima above, who is either her mother or mentor, possibly even both. Unlike Reimu however, Marisa achieved everything through strict training and can be surprisingly humble, so overall it's no wonder why she is so popular.
* Lute in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' constantly goes on about what an amazing mage prodigy she is. [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration Her stats back her up on this.]]
* HK-47 from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', due to essentially being the ''Franchise/StarWars'' equivalent to [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Bender]].



* Overlord Zetta from ''VideoGame/MakaiKingdom'' will proudly and [[LargeHam hammily]] boast that he's the "Most badass freakin' overlord in the Cosmos", and the fans love him for it.
* Dante from ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' is an egoistical DeadpanSnarker that will openly taunt the LegionsOfHell, and has taken them on more than once and come out none the worse for wear.
* SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}} from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros''. He's a massive ham with equally massive ego, but he can back every claim. When pitted against another threat, he'll stomp it to pieces and burn it to ashes. His massive armies follow him not out of fear, but out of respect and admiration. Against anyone other than Mario and Luigi, he's unstoppable, verging on TheJuggernaut.
* Klavier Gavin from ''VideoGame/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'' prides himself on his dual rockstar/prosecutor career, and loves the attention he gets from fans; during one witness testimony, the witness is staring at him (though more out of anxiety and confusion than admiration), and to Klavier, being stared at is business as usual. He's also a very popular character, [[EstrogenBrigade especially amongst female fans]]. It helps that despite his ego, he's one of the most competent, {{nice|Guy}}st, and least [[AmoralAttorney corrupt]] prosecutors in the series.
* Wario from the ''SuperMarioBros'', ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' and ''VideoGame/WarioWare'' series. He's a greedy, selfish jerkass who cares for nobody except himself (and beats up everyone in his way), but that's exactly why his fans like him. Cause there's something admirable about just how honest the guy is about his ambitions and motivations. Best seen in his Crowdfarter video meant to promote ''Game & Wario'', where he actually just outright says 'you give me your money so I can make my dreams come true'.
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'':
** J'Zargo, your khajit classmate in the College of Winterhold. [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Arrogant]], [[KleptomaniacHero light-fingered]], and eager to solve any and all issues put before him with arcane destruction. But he's also funny, affable once you've earned his respect... and he lacks in a level cap, allowing him to keep up with even the awesome potential of the Dragonborn.
** Master Neloth in DLC expansion ''Dragonborn'' steals the show with his over-the-top haughtiness and magical experiments of dubious safety. He'll also go surprisingly hands-on for a [[TheMagocracy Telvanni mage-lord]] when attempting to find a MacGuffin with you.
* [[CloudCuckoolander Papyrus]] in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is a self-assured egomaniac skeleton with delusions of adequacy, and is quite possibly the funniest thing in the game because of the sharp contrast between said ego and his lovably enthusiastic and helpful demeanor. Helps that he doesn't put down anyone else either: He's very convinced you're an awesome person, just like he is. Add that to his "fabled Blue Attack", and probably the only reason he's easy enough to be fought so early in the game is because he's just too nice to actually try to hurt you.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'': Sterling Archer. His giant ego makes him brush off his {{Jerkass}} behavior and think the lives of everyone in the office revolve around him, but it's also the source of most of the humor and many of the messed-up situations on the show. His badass moments in the field more than explain why his ego is so gigantic.
* ''Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** Toph from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has proclaimed herself to be the greatest Earthbender in the world. That was after her captors (who had caught her by surprise) [[TemptingFate told her that not even the greatest Earthbender in the world could bend metal, and thus free themselves from the metal box she was locked in]], and she proceeded to ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome invent Metalbending]]''.
** In the SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Toph is still more than a little smug when we meet her again, but the mantle of Most Entertaining Egotist is passed on to Varrick, a [[LargeHam very loud]] and [[{{Keet}} very energetic man]] who is sublimely convinced that he's the most important thing in the world and everyone will instantly forgive his misdeeds. He's ''almost'' right - for two seasons after TheReveal the other characters don't really trust him unless they have to, but the fanbase loves him because of his ham-acting and surprisingly quick thinking.



* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Even though [[MilesGloriosus Trixie]] is an arrogant egotist, her [[LargeHam hamminess]] has earned her quite a few fans.
** Rainbow Dash and Rarity can both be arrogant as well, but their respective abilities and ties to their friends make this an [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold endearing trait]] rather than a crippling inability (though there are episodes, such as "The Mysterious Mare Do Well" and "Sweet and Elite," that are built around [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructing]] these aspects of their personalities).
** [[JerkassGod Discord]] also qualifies. Granted, he's certainly [[ManipulativeBastard quite]] [[LackOfEmpathy malicious]], and [[spoiler: his overconfidence is one of the big reasons he's defeated at the end of his two-episode appearance]]. However, he's amassed a very large fanbase due to how [[LaughablyEvil fun he is]] [[LargeHam to watch]], and due to the fact that he can certainly [[RealityWarper back up]] [[SmugSuper his cockiness]].

His badass moments in the field more than explain why his ego is so gigantic.
* Apocalypse's incarnation in the 90s ''X-Men'' is a [[TheSociopath heartless]] megalomaniac with a [[AGodIAm MASSIVE god complex]] who sees the world as it is as unfit to exist and needs to be [[OmnicidalManiac wiped from existence]] and created anew in his vision, scoffs at morality besides his own, and views himself as invincible ([[InvincibleVillain he's]] [[HeroKiller on the money with that one]]). But, the fans found the [[BadassBoast bragging he does so epic]], which along with his [[InvincibleVillain ability to easily back up]] the MANY [[BadassBoast Badass Boasts]] [[EvilIsCool made him such an appealing villain]].
* Lord Hater, judging by how popular he is with ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' fans, especially on tumblr. The fact that his ego and insecurities are incredibly hilarious helps.

* Sardonyx from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' certainly thinks very highly of herself [[spoiler:due to the confidence boost Pearl has while being fused with Garnet]]. She clearly loves being herself and has a bit of an ego while doing a mission, and her fans love her for it.

* Despite being a literal joke character in the massive pantheon of ''VideoGame/RuneScape'', [[OddJobGods Brassica Prime]] is a cabbage not wanting for ego. In the quest "Missing, Presumed Death", he rejects Sliske's challenge to reinstate the God Wars, because unlike every other god there he doesn't want the Stone of Jas to increase his power, nor does he fear the Dragonkin Strisath because being cooked by a fireball would [[InsaneTrollLogic only increase his power of deliciousness]]. As for popularity, Brassica Prime was introduced as an April Fool's joke, and was so beloved by the players that he became a real character.
** Sliske himself is beloved by some fans... and despised by others. Either way, it's all about him, [[SpotlightStealingSquad literally]].

Yet it's completely justified as he's responsible for many godly feats that allow regular humans to live good lives as they do.
