* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, {{Pride}} is the fatal flaw of [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]]. This flaw is often ''literally'' fatal, because a dragon who is [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority challenged must accept]], and to [[DirtyCoward not do so]] is to call into question whether you're a true dragon in the first place.

** Tywin's obsession with the Lannister family glory results in a lack of emotional intelligence and in his utter inability to give a shit about his children as individuals. This turns into a ''literal'' fatal flaw, as his abuse of his son Tyrion earns him a terminal case of crossbow-to-gut.

* ''VideoGame/Injustice2'': [[FallenHero Regime Superman]] has two flaws:
** [[{{Determinator}} Refusal to compromise]]. He cannot bring himself to doubt his ideals or reflect on his own actions, and so anyone who doesn't agree must be betraying him. Unlike last game, he shows "patience" with people who won't come around at first, but ultimately he'll try to make them conform to his worldview rather than ever consider the idea that he might be wrong. This ultimately [[spoiler: kiboshes the second chance the story gives him.]]
** [[SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers Cynicism]]. He really believes that only tyranny and lethal force can save the world from evil, because he tried the more idealistic route and still lost everything he held dear. Because of this he fails to appreciate Supergirl's attempts to appeal to his humanity, being too jaded and despairing to accept that maybe he was right the first time.

** The flaw for the Lannisters is they don't know when to shut their mouths. Cersei makes spiteful remarks to almost everyone she meets, earning her enemies. Jaime attempted to bribe Locke after saving Brienne, but it backfires and he loses his hand. Tyrion's words are used against him at his trial for Joffrey's murder. And Tywin continues to call Shae a whore even though Tyrion just threatened to kill him. Tywin pays dearly for not shutting his mouth.

Tyrion's repeated calling out of Joffrey and the endless stream of insults he hurls in his direction end up making him the prime suspect when the latter is murdered and his words are used against him at his trial for Joffrey's murder. And Him finally snapping at his trial and hurling insults at everyone in the court seals his fate.

* ''Every'' Darklord in the ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' setting, no exceptions, has one, and it's ''always'' related to the crime that cursed them with their own Domain. For example, Strahd Von Zarovich's flaw is his love for Tatyana, his brother's betrothed. This desire led him to become a vampire, murder his brother, and - most likely - cause her death, which condemned him to his SelfInflictedHell forever. He can never have her, but is constantly tormented by visions of her and women who look just like her, both of which often cause him to take avoidable risks and make mistakes. If one hopes to have even a slim chance of defeating a Darklord, he must knowing what the flaw is and how to exploit it.
