* In a first-season episode of ''WillAndGrace'', Grace is shown to be a competition freak, to the point that neighbors won't even play charades with her anymore.

** The most extreme example is Manfred Von Karma, who took pride in never losing a case in 40 years but was infuriated at a tiny blemish on his "perfect" win record from taking a penalty against Gregory Edgeworth in court.

** The most extreme example is Manfred Von von Karma, who took pride in never losing a case in 40 years being undefeated for the entirety of his 40-year-long career, but was infuriated at a tiny blemish on his "perfect" perfect win record from taking a single penalty against Gregory Edgeworth in court. [[spoiler:Enough to murder Gregory, adopt his son, raise little Miles to become the antithesis of everything Gregory stood for, and then finally frame Miles for murder]].

A character who has an extremely aggressive treatment of competitive events, ranging from important goals to [[SeriousBusiness even light-hearted pastimes]]. "It's just a game" will always go over this person's head as he or she insists on being the best at any minor challenge placed in front of them. They are a SoreLoser and not a humble winner, rubbing it in with UnsportsmanlikeGloating.

* Exploited on ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'', when Robin assembles a team of himself and four other Robins. The other Titans quickly realize that the Robins are ''all'' hyper-competitive, and can be tricked into doing ''anything'' just by saying it's what "the best Robin" would do.

->''"One of the great things about people is that if you put them on TV, they'll do anything to win. Sometimes they're not even sure if they're on a show with prizes, or what the prize is--they will debase themselves and taunt their own god to win. For proof, three different groups of women [[Series/FlavorOfLove have competed to let Flavor Flav inside them]], and he looks like something that crawls out of bogs to replace our babies with changelings."''

* ''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".
