* Most outdoor cats in "Webcomic/PrinceOfCats" talk down to Lee, whom they telepathically communicate with as part of an obligation to their princess who is smitten with him.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', his pet lion is this and KingOfBeasts- he's got all sorts of special powers and stuff and assists in battle, but rarely follows Steven's orders and tends to wander off on his own.
* You could make a case for Plagg from ''WesternAniamtion/MiraculousLadybug''- he's not a cat, but a cat-themed, um, "kwami", but he tends to just want to sit around eating [[TrademarkFavoriteFood camembert cheese]] all day, regardless of what Adrien tries to tell him. That is, until an [[MonsterOfTheWeek Akuma]] shows up, upon which Plagg becomes one half of his TransformationTrinket and undergoes a sort-of FusionDance with Adrien into his superhero identity, Chat Noir.

** Yet another: "Dogs eat. Cats ''dine''."



* The fossil record as currently available suggests the reason there are so many more cat species than canine is that cats were driving canines extinct by virtue of being superior hunters, the exceptions usually being canines who formed packs, of course.

** In most Muslim countries cats are considered superior because they were the favorite animal of Muhammad, who owned several. They are considered ritually clean, and allowed to enter mosques. Dogs get a negative rap because many Muslim clerics believe they're suitable only for hunting, not as pets and dogs, especially black dogs, scared Muhammad(they're often considered unclean). Many striped or tabby cats have three black streaks on their head, and there's a (though fairly obscure) Muslim legend that when Muhammad petted his favorite cat, three of his fingerprints stayed on her head and those of her descendants to mark their favored status. It's highly unlikely that all the cats with that marking are descended from one cat, but it's a good story. In another story, Muhammad is said to have cut the sleeve off a favorite robe that he was wearing rather than risk disturbing the cat who was sleeping on it.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'' This is {{deconstructed|Trope}} and PlayedForDrama, since the {{Catfolk}} of TheEmpire of Thundera are a {{Proud Warrior Race|Guy}} who are [[SuperiorSpecies genuinely excellent]] fighters, have an [[TheOrder order]] of KungFuWizard[=/=]{{Magic Knight}}s and possess powerful {{Ancient Artifact}}s. As a result, they do much CulturalPosturing around [[MasterRace believing]] their own press, that they were and are the great civilizers of their planet, who "brought law and order to a [[WorldOfFunnyAnimals world of warring animals]]." This is a deeply-rooted societal justification for [[AnimalJingoism jingoistic]] FantasticRacism against other [[PettingZooPeople Animals]]. They place minorities like {{Dog|faces}}s in a FantasticGhetto to be victimized by "Alley Cats" (the bottom rung of Cat society, who apparently distract themselves from their own low status by lording it over the even lower-status Dogs). In their war with the {{Lizard|Folk}}s, the Cats [[MadeASlave enslave]] the hungry Lizards they catch raiding crops (due to the Cats' monopolization of arable land) even [[VigilanteExecution lynching]] them, if they feel like it. Its only a matter of time until the Cats' sense of security undoes them.

[[spoiler: It turns out that this is all due to the Cats being Mumm-Ra's most trusted lackeys back before crash landing on Third Earth when they overthrew Mumm-Ra. The cats were put in charge of the new society; generations later, it went to their heads.]]

* Beerus and his twin brother Champa in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''. They're ''Destroyer gods'', making them the most powerful [[spoiler:formerly mortal]] beings in their respective universes. There are very few beings in all of existence that even approach their power level. [[spoiler:Their vassals and mentors, Whis for Beerus and Vados for Champa, are a bit stronger than each of them. They all answer to Zen'O, the ruler of all creation.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Literature/Redwall}}'': Cats have exactly one non-villainous non-evil example, and all those think considerably more of themselves than the vermin they rule over (especially Ungatt Trunn, ANaziByAnyOtherName). Riggu Felis goes even further by reigning over other cats (he considers that he's superior to them by virtue of being a wildcat, while they're merely feral cats. The fascinating implication of there still being humans to tame cats this late in the series goes unexplored).
* Subverted in ''Literature/TheJungleBook'': Bagheera is among the biggest badasses in the jungle (and not afraid to remind people of it), but even he can't stand Mowgli's gaze for more than a few seconds.

\n* Mr. Cat from ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}''. He has [[FantasticRacism shown contempt of other species]] (even naming the trope once), and he is [[SurroundedByIdiots the only actual smart person on the show]]; the other "smart" characters are {{Ditzy Genius}}es.

* Considering that cats are [[spoiler:aliens who visited Earth during ancient times and stay here]] in WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', they are at the very least very technologically superior.
