* ''CyranoDeBergerac'': Cyrano invokes this, because his great intellect is used to humiliate everyone who is not his friend. This is not so much to show he is a genius, but to show Viscount De Valvert that [[JerkAss Cyrano is truly Insufferable]]:

In some way or another, the Insufferable Genius' inflated ego is merely [[FreudianExcuse a petty facade]] that compensates for any perceived insecurities or shortcomings. They may also be legitimately crazy to where they truly believe they're above everyone else. While people may have the right to brag about themselves, there's ultimately never any real reason to do so, especially, if it can be backed up. Despite any justification, arrogance is usually indicative of weakness, immaturity, poor character and the like; something the I.G. would be too proud to realize. Sometimes, though they actually can reveal a personable and compassionate side of themselves along with a deep, dark secret revealing why they're the way they are, in which case they have BigEgoHiddenDepths.

* Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald of ''LightNovel/FateZero'' is a powerful Mage and lecturer at the [[MagicSchool Clock Tower]], and is so full of himself that it's coming out of his ears. However, it is his own arrogance that does him in. He's so convinced that his victory in the [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Holy Grail War]] is just a matter of time, and had it been a contest of magical strength, it would have been, but he is twice outdone by Emiya Kiritsugi's [[CombatPragmantist unconventional tactics,]] losing first his base of operations and then his own magical abilities. By the end, Kayneth just wants to get out with his life...[[spoiler: and he doesn't even get that.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'' has Gaius Baltar. He ''is'' a genius. He has in-universe fans. He also (indirectly) caused the nuclear holocaust of the Twelve Colonies and if you say you never wanted to strangle him you're lying.

* ''HajimeNoIppo''. Takamura Mamoru. He has an ego of the size of a planet and believes himself to be strongest man in the history of men. Well, it's just that this may very well be true, since he is the strongest boxer in the entire manga. His daily {{jerkass}} habits contain bullying Aoki and Kimura and rubbing the fact that they're... not the best boxers... in their faces.

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': Sergeant Major Kururu has a mischievous streak a mile long, and seems more interested in amusing himself than completing the invasion of Earth. However, he's still a (technically senior) member of the Keroro Platoon, and the group's "ideas" guy.



* Ryuunosuke in ''LightNovel/ThePetGirlOfSakurasou'' shows streaks of this after coming out from [[{{hikikomori}} being a reclusive]] GadgeteerGenius for five months: he doesn't even bother listening to the teacher's lecture and also eats [[TrademarkFavoriteFood tomatoes]] in class, which the teacher finds irritating.
