* ''Series/CrazyExGirlfriend'' has "I'm So Good At Yoga", which is actually sung in the heroine's mind by the girlfriend of the guy she's obsessed with:
-->I do stuff with my body\\
That no human should be able to do\\
Like putting my face behind my knees\\
Turning my hand, into a shoe.\\
As the morning sun kisses the lotus\\
I kiss my own hoo-haa, can you do that?\\
Greet each day, Namaste\\
Screeeeeewww you, '''you‛re fat'''
* In the ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "Blue", the VR "Arnold Rimmer Experience" ends with a song sung tiny munchkin Rimmers.
-->''If you're in trouble he will save the day''\\
''He's brave and he's fearless come what may''\\
''Without him the mission would go astray''\\
''He's Arnold, Arnold, Arnold Rimmer''\\
''Without him life would be much grimmer''\\
''He's handsome, trim, and no-one slimmer''\\
''He will never need a zimmer''

** Neon Katt, one of Yang's opponents in the [[TournamentArc Vytal Festival]], has her own boasting theme song, [[CharacterTitle appropriately]] titled ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5pnzQtBtf0 Neon]]'', which is about how it's just too bad that you'll never be quite as awesome as her.

** Also, when Lafayette, Laurens, and Mulligan are introduced in ''Aaron Burr, Sir'', each performs a short rap boasting about why they're great, too, and Lafayette's one explicitly references the song ''C'est Moi'' from ''{{Theatre/Camelot}}'':
-->I came from afar just to say “Bonsoir!”\\
Tell the King “Casse toi!” Who’s the best?\\
''C’est moi!''

** The melody is also reprised in ''Blow Us All Away'' when Phillip Hamilton raps about how he's following in his father's footsteps:
-->Meet the latest graduate of King's College\\
I prob'ly shouldn't brag, but dag, I amaze and astonish.\\
The scholars say I got the same virtuosity and brains as my pops\\
The ladies say my brain's not where the resemblance stops!

* Mac Davis's "It's Hard to Be Humble":
--> Oh, Lord, it's hard to be humble\\
When you're perfect in every way\\
I can't wait to look in the mirror\\
'Cause I get better-lookin' each day\\
To know me is to love me\\
I must be a hell of a man\\
Oh, Lord, it's hard to be humble\\
But I'm doin' the best that I can.

* In ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'', the NominalHero Captain Hammer tries delivering a RousingSpeech in song form with "Everyone's A Hero," which ends up being filled with {{Stealth Insult}}s and comes off more as TheReasonYouSuckSpeech directed at homeless people and muggles about how they'll never be as great as he is no matter what. Naturally, the audience chews it up save for Penny, though the fact that he openly boasts about sleeping with her in the song probably didn't do him any favors.
--> '''Captain Hammer:''' ''Everyone's a hero in their own way; you, and you, and mostly me, and you.''
