** In Episode 26, Kaeloo herself gets a taste of this. She receives a letter in the mail, and just before she opens it, Stumpy asks what it is. Kaeloo says that it's probably a letter from an admirer or [[MediumAwareness fan of the show]], and explains to Stumpy in a condescending tone of voice that the reason she gets one and he doesn't is that she's the main character of the show and the show [[ProtagonistTitle is named after her.]] She then proceeds to open the letter, and it turns out to be a hate letter criticizing her for being "boring". And to rub salt in the wound, the letter also says that Stumpy (and the rest of the cast) is better than her.

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has a few examples in the main story and its sidestories:
** Gary Oak has rather high opinion of himself as a Pokémon trainer, but constantly loses to Red whenever they encounter each other. To top it off, when teamed up with Paul in the Fuchsia tournament, he's quick to see how far behind he is in skill compared to Paul.
** The Pokémon Tech's Golden Generation suffers a series of humilliating defeats at the hands of Ash and Misty during the Giselle Interlude.
** The Clair Interlude shows the title Gym Leader is fond of doing this to SmallNameBigEgo challengers.

* This is what Clan Nosferatu in ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' likes to do with humans who they deem too proud of themselves. There is even a word in vampire slang, [[Film/{{Freaks}} "Cleopatra"]], which designates a woman who once was beautiful, but turned into a horrific monster after being Embraced by Nosferatu.

** This is also standard practice for the Nosferatu in the tabletop version of ''Masquerade''. There's a whole subset of Nosferatu nicknamed "Cleopatras" -- beautiful people who got everywhere on their looks alone and who were Embraced to teach them a cruel lesson about what the ugly people went through.
