* [[ColonelBadass Oresky]] from ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure''. 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 DangerouslyGenreSavvy 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.

* Admiral Leonardo van Ostrand from ''Webcomic/{{Clockwork}}'' is plenty full of himself, introducing himself to the protagonist as "Owner of the world's finest airship! And the world's most handsome face." His confidence and warm, friendly demeanor are so infectious, though, that it's hard to mind his ego too much.

* VideoGame/DukeNukem is a self-centered, politically incorrect chauvinistic bastard. And the fans love him for it, both [[VideoGame/DukeNukemForever in]] and [[GuiltyPleasure out of universe]] due to the fact that he does have a personality ([[HeroicMime in contrast to most other shooter protagonists]]) and his general badassery for saving the world multiple times [[OneManArmy by himself]]. How narcissistic is he? In multiple games, he doesn't have a LifeMeter--he has an ''ego'' meter. And looking at yourself in the mirror ''gives it a permanent boost''.

He has written at least one book, titled "Why I'm So Great".

* Despite being a JokeCharacter (an ascended April Fool's joke, to be precise) in the massive pantheon of ''VideoGame/RuneScape'', [[OddJobGods Brassica Prime]] is a cabbage not wanting for ego. He resists Sliske's challenge to reinstate the God Wars, to which ''every other god present has acquiesced so far'', purely because he thinks he's ''already'' too excellent a god to need the [[ArtifactOfDoom Stone of Jas]] to increase his power or standing. Brassica is also completely unafraid of the [[PersonOfMassDestruction dragonkin]], because he believes [[LetsMeetTheMeat his power comes from his nutritional benefits and good taste]], and cooked (fireballed) cabbage is much tastier than raw cabbage, [[InsaneTrollLogic therefore increasing his flavor only increases Brassica's power!]]

* 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.
