* ''TabletopGame/PrincessTheHopeful'': this trope is, in a nutshell, the entire reason [[AlphaBitch Princesses of Mirrors]] are huge fan-favourite [[UnpopularPopularCharacter despite being mostly disliked in-universe]]. They are all [[SmugSuper egomaniac]], [[ItsAllAboutMe narcissistic]] {{Royal Brat}}s... but their [[FunctionalMagic Charms]] include some of the best StatusBuff in the entire game, meaning they actually ''can'' back up their huge ego.

* 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.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': The entire cast/crew could be ''incredibly'' arrogant and smug in their superiority in the first two seasons. But they had enough awesome moments to carry the show through, and [[CharacterDevelopment only got better]] while losing most of their less likeable traits, winning themselves a devoted fanbase.

** SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}}. 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.

'''Harry''': Same here, I must say. It's sad how people keep underestimating me.

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', as the seasons progress, Daenerys Targaryn becomes increasingly fond of trying to cow others into bending to her will by listing her deeds and accomplishment. As those accomplishments include reviving the previously extinct race of dragons -- which involved walking into a raging fire and emerging unscathed, rearing those three dragons as her devoted children to kill for her and let her ride on their backs, massacring a cruel empire of slavers with the army of slave-soldiers that they ''[[HoistByHisOwnPetard sold her]]'', and taming the most feared culture of bloodthirsty barbarians in the world -- which involved assassinating their leaders by burning down their hut, with her inside of it, then walking naked out of the flames and demanding their followers submit to her... well, most fans relish every time that she does so.

* ''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.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': Revali is an egotistical ArcherArchetype who dislikes Link for overshadowing his own skills by virtue of being TheChosenOne, in contrast to the other Champions who adore Link. Fans still found Revali endearing for this.

* ''Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger:'' Tsurugi Ohtori[=/=]Houou Soldier has got one hell of an ego and doesn't spare a moment to brag about his incredible power to the other characters. Destroying an entire fleet of spaceships without the use of the mech and his finisher destroying the biggest ship in just one blow (All of this in his debut) backs up that claim quite a bit.

** [[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]].
