** In "The Children", Cersei manages to hurt Tywin about the one thing he cares about the family legacy by simply revealing to him that the rumors about the incest were true all along. Tywin is shocked and in denial, and then later Tyrion finds out that Father was a hypocrite whoremonger himself, permanently destroying his credibility and removing any ability to bargain for his life with Tyrion.

* [[AlphaBitch Maria Joaquina]] from Series/{{Carrusel}} goes through this rather early. At some point she openly denounces [[ProperLady Marcelina]] for cheating in a test, and while she ''is'' [[JerkassHasAPoint tehcnically right]], the problem is that the kids were already getting tired of [[SpoiledBrat her arrogance and spoiled behavior]]... so not only they side with Marcelina, but ''they totally shun Maria Joaquina and refuse to even speak to her''. (Even her DoggedNiceGuy!) Few afterwards, the tiny IceQueen is reduced [[CryCute to a sobbing wreck]], and only '''then''' she's re-accepted into the group. (And she switches from AlphaBitch to {{Tsundere}}))

* Alain/[[Series/KamenRiderGhost Kamen Rider Necrom]] starts out as [[EvilIsPetty immature]], [[SmugSnake smug]] EvilPrince. Then everything crashes down on him. [[spoiler: First he loses his father, who is murdered by his brother. His brother than ends his supply of [[OutOfContinues continues]] and frames him for their father's murder. He is forced to rely on his former friend and a perceived Archenemy for survival. Then his friend sacrifices himself to save him and he is left only with his Archenemy to rely on. To top this when it seems that the shitstorm is over, his MoralityPet elderly friend dies, fully opening him to the reality of being mortal.]] It also works as a TraumaCongaLine as while he deserves both most of the line and sympathy.

** Also features in ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader''. Eustace has an (unjustified) superior attitude towards everyone around him (especially towards the [[FantasticRacism non-humans]]) and considers himself above such mundane tasks as setting up camp and sneaks off on his own to explore the island. He gets hopelessly lost and then [[KarmicTransformation turned into a dragon]] for sleeping on a dragon's hoard while thinking greedy thoughts. This actually seems like it would be pretty [[CursedWithAwesome fun]], but Eustace is doesn't have the right mindset to be able to enjoy it; also, being turned into a dragon has some serious drawbacks since he can't speak and can't go on with the ship because he's too heavy and eats too much.

** Jaime remains completely unbroken by months of captivity, but that all changes when he loses his sword hand. Locke invokes this as the reason why he cut off Jaime's hand.

** The latest "victim" of the trope is [[spoiler: Sanji's ArchnemesisDad, Vinsmoke Judge. He goes through it in 864 as he not only realizes that Big Mom and her crew are about to kill him and his family, but is forced to face this in one of the most humiliating ways possible: when the whole family is about to be shot down by Big Mom's son Perospero and his soldiers and his Tykebomb sons not only show [[NotAfraidToDie no fear of death]], but mock ''him'' for not wanting to die.]]

** The Indigo League episode "The School of Hard Knocks" featured Giselle, an AlphaBitch at Pokémon Tech who bullied the other students under the guise of tutoring, and who had the nerve to openly insult Ash's Pikachu. Ash proceeds to give her a healthy dose of this trope by defeating her Cubone using said Pikachu. Despite the obvious typing disadvantage.

** Paul, after spending the entire season being one ArrogantKungFuGuy and looking down in Ash, discovers that Ash has beaten Brandon (that has beaten his brother and the entire reason to he be one ArrogantKungFuGuy) and [[CurbStompBattle is soundly beaten]] in front of his brother.

*** Similarly, during the Johto series Misty befriended a Pokémon cheerleader named Tammi, who was training her Pokémon for a tournament and was ''very'' exigent to them, to StageMom levels. First, her Politoed and NumberTwo deserted her and sought solance with Ash's group, who then meet up with Tammi and try to help her loosen up to no avail. Later, Tammi's Pokémon fail to get her instructions right and get hurt as a result but she yells at them, so Misty yells at ''her'' since she's ignoring how they could have been wounded. Seeing Misty get things done ''right'' also sends Tammi to a sobbing breakdown [[MustMakeAmends and mending things.]]

** Ash himself falls victim to this on a number of occasions. It seems that every time the guy has even the slightest winning streak going for himself he starts to get a big head. Whenever this happens, you can bet his next opponent WILL [[CurbstompBattle rip out his ego and beat him with it]]. No matter how many times this happens however, he [[BrokenAesop never seems to learn]].

** In the Diamond and Pearl episode "Classroom Training!", Ash attends the Snowpoint Trauners' School and runs afoul of Jeremiah, who notes how Ash got a low score on a Pokémon exam and outright asked ''how'' he won six Badges with how little academic knowledge he has on Pokémon. Jeremiah is subsequently curb-stomped by [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain the Team Rocket trio]] of all people, with no cheating or dirty tricks on their end, because for all of his book-smarts, he had no actual experience and could only think of shouting attack names.

** Princess Zelda and Revali in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' both resent Link for being chosen by the Master Sword and they go out of their way to be dismissive of him. [[spoiler: Zelda feels worthless compared to Link since Link was able to wield the Master Sword with ease while Zelda herself couldn't unlock her sealing powers, which made her look incompetent in front of her people. Revali is jealous at how easily Link was able to rise up and is the chosen one to defeat Ganon, which made Revali's accomplishments as a Rito warrior look worthless. Both characters get bit in the ass ''hard'' that breaks them of their haughtiness; Revali dies fighting against Ganon's minions and spends the next century having his spirit trapped in a HumongousMecha. Zelda gets attacked by the Yiga clan and is saved by Link, which gets her to warm up to him. Once Ganon breaks free, Zelda loses her entire kingdom, her father, and nearly loses Link as well. It's from there that Zelda gets over her inferioity complex and seals Ganon and herself away at Hyrule Castle for the next 100 years. She is relieved to see Link alive and well once he finally saves her.]]

** In the backstory, the [[OurElvesAreBetter Altmer (High Elves)]] were delivered a massive blow to their collective ego when Tiber Septim used The Numidium to destroy their armies and sack their capital city of Alinor in less than one hour of fighting. This was the first time in their thousands of years of history that the Altmer had been conquered by an outside force.[[note]] Reman Cyrodiil got the Altmer to join his 2nd Empire, but through a treaty with incredibly favorable terms to the Altmer rather than by conquest. [[/note]] Severely weakened, many of the most extremist Altmer groups (including the Thalmor) were content to wait out Septim's 3rd Empire and then rose again once it fell completely apart at the start of the 4th Era.
