* This is largely the point of ComicBook/DoctorDoom. He's a scientific genius to rival [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]], a magical prodigy who approaches ComicBook/DoctorStrange in power, and physically fit enough that he can kill lions bare-handed; he rules a nation as semi-benevolent dictator, adheres to a code of always repaying his debts, has enough willpower to stare down the Purple Man without flinching, and wears a suit of armour on par with that sported by ComicBook/IronMan. He could, in theory, be one of the Marvel Universe's greatest forces for good, because in power level you can pick almost any three superheroes and he's the equal of all of them. Unfortunately for the Marvel Universe, his egomania will never stop clouding his judgment. When Reed Richards pointed out a mistake in Doom's calculations, he spat in Reed's face, and when his experiment went wrong and scarred him, he blamed Reed rather than admit, even to himself, that he screwed up, and dedicated the rest of his life to a needless revenge for a nonexistent crime. His hideous scarring is his own fault, because believing his good looks to already be ruined by the thin scar he had received, he donned the iron mask to his first suit of armour without waiting for it to cool first. His people fear him more than love him; he has no friends; most of his intellectual equals are superheroes who would be ''suspicious'' at an invitation to discuss something; he's a pariah on the international stage. All because of his swollen ego.

* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'':
** [[TheStoic Hiiro Kagami]]/Kamen Rider Brave, genius surgeon with a stellar career at an age where most other doctors are starting out as interns (like his collegue [[TheHeart Emu Hojo]]). His coldly perfect exterior covers a mass of issues from being [[NoSocialSkills unable]] to relate to people on personal level, defending against the pressure of his job and having no life outside of it as a result to [[ItSAllMyFault blaming]] himself for his girlfriend's death.
** [[TokenEvilTeammate Taiga Hanaya]]/Kamen Rider Brave, genius radiologist and CR's first Kamen Rider, able to spot an early phase of Game Disease with ordinary technology of his field. Fast forward five years, he is a broken shell of [[TookALevelInJerkass once]] kind man fighting for a revenge - the only thing he can do after he lost everything.

* A [[CentralTheme recurring theme]] in ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' is that talent comes with its drawbacks and doesn't make anyone better than everyone else. The main protagonists tend to be [[TheEveryman average people]] among those who are the best in their given fields, but still manage to get by because they don't have the same level of [[BunnyEarsLawyer eccentricity]], CripplingOverspecialization, or [[DysfunctionJunction dyfunction]] as the other students.

* In ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'', Captain Qwark. He was previously a heroic and upstanding hero in his youth, if naive and dim-witted, but his modern persona is cowardly and selfish. As revealed in [[RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal the third game]], this is because a narrow escape from the clutches of Dr. Nefarious caused him to realize that he could have genuinely died. While the exact reasoning behind this is selfish (he was more concerned about depriving the galaxy of himself), in later games makes honest attempts to do the right thing again.

* The ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' series has Izuru Kamukura, who volunteered to be made into TheAce via surgical operation, done by Hope's Peak Academy itself. They also (without telling him) deliberately removed his personality, memories, and emotions, to not interfere with a being of pure talent. By doing so, they did create a perfectly talented man...who is so talented and alone in the world he finds it ''completely boring''; as such he has no motivation to do ''anything'' unless it could cure his boredom.

Expect him to have at least one [[BunnyEarsLawyer bizarre trait]] [[CursedWithAwesome or ability]] that should not be overlooked, as well as an [[TheCynic unhealthy attitude about love, life, and humanity in general]]. He most likely doesn't have anyone that loves or respects him for what he really is. [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk This may be justified]].

* Agon Kongo of ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}''. He's a once-a-century [[TheGift prodigy]], who doesn't even need to practise to be a brilliant athlete, has a reaction time that's nearly superhuman, gets good grades with his eyes closed, and has fantastic social skills when he cares to. One the field he's a [[OneManArmy One Man Football Team]]; off the field, he's incredibly successful with girls, and is more or less allowed to do whatever he wants to at the school. It's made him an incredibly entitled, borderline [[TheSociopath sociopath]], with [[LackOfEmpathy no empathy]], a total inability to connect to others, and a very short fuse. He's feared instead of liked, and almost everyone who spends more than a few minutes with him (deservedly) wishes he was dead.

* Sousuke Yamazaki from Anime/{{Free}}. He's a nationally ranked butterfly swimmer, also excellent at the front crawl and apparently good at backstroke, very attractive, scouted by universities for swimming scholarships, etc. [[spoiler:Turns out he came home from his prestigious high school in Tokyo because he injured his right shoulder through overtraining. His refusal to take a break from swimming and actually ''deal'' with the problem resulted in the joint breaking down, and he'll never be able to swim professionally]].
