*** In the History and Lore videos, on King's Landing, he is positively proud of his cold and brutal betrayal of Aerys Targaryen, noting how the King "thought he was being clever" by keeping Jaime as a hostage against him. He also considers "The Rains of Castamere" as a quaint song and sends it as his go-to death threat to anyone who so much as thinks of resisting the Lannisters.

* Infernal. {{Exalted}}. They can reduce their Torment meters by doing something their Yozi patrons like. As it happens, She Who Lives In Her Name enjoys an impressive feat of Evil Gloating, meaning that a Green Sun Prince who wants to pursue his own agendas without losing control may well have to rant like a B-movie supervillain.

This is one of the most well mocked villain cliches, but is very much an UndeadHorseTrope. For one thing it gives a villainous character a great chance to ''act'' and flesh out their character a little more. For another, it's both TruthInTelevision and a very appropriate FatalFlaw for the prideful, narcissistic characters who often become villains.

* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' utilizes this often. One notable instance is in "Murder 2.0", which features a serial killer using a YouTube site to broadcast his murders, all in the name of fame. The killer proves to be a real headache for Gibbs, and when they're finally caught, this trope is utilized in their boasting that they would still be famous when their identity was revealed. Gibbs consequently ensures that, "citing possible links to terrorism", no details about the killer are released to the public.
