* ''WebVideo/ThrillingIntent'' has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCClDwl98RU The Ballad of Markus Velafi]], a song telling tall tales about his exploits without giving [[ConsummateLiar any details about himself, and admitting as much in the lyrics]] while trying to con the listener into giving him money.
** There's also, of course, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aR7uZ90EOIo Better Than You]], the ImageSong for Inien, who [[JerkAss starts by taunting the listener]] before listing all of her qualities.

* ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' has "Master of the House", in which Thenardier brags about what a [[BlatantLies good, honest, smart man he is]]. TakenToEleven in the TriumphantReprise "Beggars at the Feast", where the Thenardiers brag about how they managed to lie, scam, cheat, and rob their way into the upper class, [[KarmaHoudini and are the best off of any of the characters at the end of the show despite being by far the worst]].

* In ''Theatre/InTheHeights'', Usnavi has a brief one in "It Won't Be Long Now" after Sonny asks Vanessa out for him. It's used purely for comedic effect, as he is too shy to ask her himself.

* At the height of the Federation Era in the {{WWE}}, Wrestling/VinceMcMahon recorded a big music video for his own single called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxtCTaCxDUc "Stand Back!"]] It's a collection of {{TakeThat}}s leveled at his many critics over the way he runs his business and the product he puts out. It's a massive NeverLiveItDown for him, though he's willing to let the occasional jab at it slide.

* ''Theatre/LegallyBlonde'': The musical features a number called ''The Harvard Variations'' where several students sing about how great they, and why Harvard is obviously the 'perfect place' for them:
-->'''Aaron Schulz:''' I won a Fulbright and a Rhodes/I write financial software codes/But that's a challenge I've outgrown/How many yachts can one man own?

* The song "Oblivious" from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmTyBYV_ufw&t=143s Episode Two]] of ''WebAnimation/OfWeaselsAndChickens''. Prima either makes fun of Marcus or praises herself throughout the entire song.
** Also "Off to the Henhouse" from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RT4d7CeQmfQ&t=1s Episode Three]], to some extent. Although the majority is a SanitySlippageSong about how much Prima loves murder, she also praises herself as an efficient predator.
-->''I'm the kind of guy\\
Who gets happy when it gets gory!\\
I'm in no way shy\\
Submitting to instincts predatory!\\
I'm the subject of gallinaceous horror stories\\
That hens tell to their chicks as a little memento mori...''
