*In ''Fanfic/SaviorOfDemons'', Haabu is one, as his [[ItsAllAboutMe internal monologues]] reveal. Judging from his questionable involvement in any actual fights (he only appeared on New Arcos to shout orders at the Saiyans and look important), he is likely a MilesGloriosus as well.

However, there is an important distinction between the two: A {{Glory Seeker}} [[InHarmsWay would happily get themselves]] [[MartyrdomCulture killed in pursuit of glory]], while a {{Glory Hound}} would [[MoralEventHorizon happily get others killed]] [[WhatMeasureIsAMook in pursuit of glory]], [[TheSociopath often with no remorse]], bonus points for stealing the glory that others have legitimately earned, {{disproportionate retribution}} on those opposing their plans, or engaging in {{chronic backstabbing disorder}}.

* Captain Falco from Creator/JohnHemry's ''Literature/TheLostFleet'' makes himself out to be the hero of the Alliance even though his victories are all but indistinguishable from his defeats.

* Captain Falco from Creator/JohnHemry's ''Literature/TheLostFleet'' makes himself out to be the hero of the Alliance even though his victories are all but indistinguishable from his defeats. [[spoiler:This ends up blowing up in his face spectacularly when he persuades a chunk of the titular Fleet to go haring off on a [[AttackAttackAttack glorious headlong charge]]... [[RealityEnsues straight into an enemy ambush.]] When we next see Falco, [[HeroicBSOD his mind has cracked completely]].]]

* Pyro in ''ComicBook/TransformersLastStandOfTheWreckers'' - he refuses to take a particular HeroicSacrifice because it's ''not cool enough'' for his tastes, and insists that Ironfist [[KickTheDog make the sacrifice instead]]. [[spoiler:He later reconsiders and says just dying for your friends is good enough. He does.]]

* Ratchet from ''RatchetAndClank'' is a bit like this. His main motivation is the fame and fortune that comes from his adventures. But by game three, he has become jaded when Clank gets his own secret agent series that has Ratchet as his chauffeur, constantly annoyed that Qwark and Clank keep getting credit for his work.

* Aaron Hughes of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' fits. Almost right away he starts an escape group, only to [[ManipulativeBastard manipulate]] and [[WellIntentionedExtremist use extreme methods]] throughout the game to get what he wants. It becomes abundantly clear (even flat-out said at one point) that he doesn't want to escape, but rather he wants to take the glory for being the one to figure out how. It reaches the point that [[spoiler:when the escape boats come]], he refuses simply because it wasn't him who summoned them and that he would ''rather play the game conventionally''.

* In ''WebAnimation/XRayAndVav'', unlike his idealistic partner Vav, X-Ray only cares about becoming popular from being a superhero instead of actually being a hero. He gets angry when the superhero Mogar starts stealing his spotlight and is more concerned about getting rid of him than helping people.
