* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' - Robin becomes this in "Winner Take All" when he and a bunch of other heroes are drafted into a tournament. When Cyborg (who beat him in a card game earlier) tries to voice his suspicions about the whole thing, he assumes it's an attempt to sabotage him.

After breaking Speedy's bow in order to win their match, he gets asked if it was really worth it.

* ''DarkSun'' half-elves like this. They even got a personal XP award for besting a human or elf in some or other traditional activity. Just because they want to be accepted and it always involves one way or another showing that they "aren't worse at this".

* In the Chinese gaming light novel ''Literature/TheKingsAvatar'' a girl named Tang Rou thinks the MMORPG Glory is boring and not at all a challenge, up until the main character repeatably wipes the floor with her in PVP. At that point she becomes obsessed with learning the game just so she can beat him.

* ''TopGear'': Jeremy Clarkson. He must win at everything, not just car related competitions, but every competition on the show even if it really shouldn't be something to get competitive over (eg, finding edible roadkill, Clarkson finds a cow because it's biggest). PlayedForLaughs naturally as Clarkson's over the top approach brings [[HilarityEnsues disaster]] as often as victory.
* ''FullHouse.'' Danny often gets like this, notably in the SeriesFinale.
* Jay from ''MyWifeAndKids'' is this to a T. [[FreudianExcuse This is because]] she was once her school's star soccer goalie who got thrown off the team because someone else wanted a turn. She insisted on winning every competition since.
* Moze from ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' might count.

* The ''BetterOffTed'' episode "Win Some, Dose Some" is all about how the entire cast (except Linda) fits this trope. Ted goes meta with it in the opening narration when he proudly asserts, "No one's more competitive than me and Veronica."

Added DiffLines:

* Josee from ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace'' is this to such an extreme that she believes placing anywhere other than first to be totally shameful. She throws tantrums when she and her partner don't take gold and [[spoiler: started smashing up Central Park when they eventually came third.]]

* Kashima Yuu of ''Manga/GekkanShoujoNozakiKun'' will start very hotblooded competitions for some of the most minor things, including pillow fights, telling ghost stories, and crossdressing. Unlike most examples though, her friendly, positive nature prevents her from falling too hard into either the sore-winner or sore-loser camps.
