** Sento Kiriyu of ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'' is Tendou 3.0 for those who thought that the original was ''too'' insufferable. [[note]] With the added value of his actor, Atsuhiro Inukai being a [[PromotedFanboy Kabuto fan]]. [[/note]] He is a genius physicist with love for his inventions and intellect. The opening narration starts with line ''The handsome and brilliant scientist, Sento Kiriyu'' spoken by him. When you look away from the gloating, he [[ComesGreatResponsibility is]] the [[GoodFeelsGood sweetest]], [[ThinkNothingOfIt kindest]] InsufferableGenius possible.

* Fanfic/TheMansionverse's ghosts can be quite smug about how good at scaring they are, and the worst is easily the Portrait Man, NightmareFuel personified when on the job but insufferably smug (and chatty) about it during 'breaks'.

* [[Series/AdamRuinsEverything Adam Connover]] means well, and he doesn't exactly flaunt his intelligence. The problem is his compulsive need to correct people and the delight he takes in pointing out the AwfulTruth behind common misconceptions to people who just don't want to listen.

* The last DC Comics story of ''ThePowerpuffGirls'', "Smart And Smarter" (Issue #59 of Cartoon Network Block Party) had Blossom being admitted to a school for exceptionally smart children. Of course, this goes to her head as after Bubbles draws a rainbow, Blossom details what causes rainbows in a condescending manner. When she starts ragging on Buttercup and Bubbles on their battle techniques against Mojo Jojo, breaking down every movement to a science, even Mojo has had enough and challenges Blossom. Eventually at the end, [[TeamRocketWins Mojo outwits Blossom]], with Bubbles' and Buttercup's blessings!

* The first arc of the ''ComicBook/MisterTerrific'' series involves a supervillain named Brainstorm who is able to raise other people's intelligence at the expense of their social skills, effectively turning them into insufferable geniuses.

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'''s ''Dragonborn'' DLC has Master Neloth, a Councilor of the Dunmeri [[TheClan Great House]] [[TheMagocracy Telvanni]] who previously appeared in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]''. The rather [[MightMakesRight lax]] [[KlingonPromotion rules]] in House Telvanni foster an environment in which EvilSorcerer and magical MadScientist types flourish, and Neloth is the epitome of that. He doesn't give an [[DudeWheresMyRespect iota of respect]] to even world-saving heroes like the [[PlayerCharacter Nerevarine or Dragonborn]]. [[TheArchmage Archmage]] of the [[WizardingSchool College of Winterhold]]? Still condescending. In fact, he treats the position as if its just barely qualified to be his ''apprentice''. Similarly, his reasoning for refusing to train your Enchanting past level 90 is that he doesn't want you to potentially get better than him.

* Comicbook/{{Hardware}}; see DwayneMcDuffie[='=]s run on ''JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'' for numerous examples. He spends most of this time snarking about how easily he was able to break into JLA headquarters and how easy it was to hack into their communicators system. This angers [[GreenLantern John Stewart]] who at one point angrily yells "Okay, we get it! You're smarter than us."

In some way or another, the Insufferable Genius' inflated ego is merely [[FreudianExcuse a petty facade]] that compensates for any insecurities and shortcomings, perceived or otherwise. They may also be [[AxCrazy legitimately crazy]] and truly believe they're above everyone else. 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. Regardless, while people may have the right to boast about themselves, there's never really any real reason to do so in such an overt manner, especially, if it can be backed up. Despite any "justification", arrogance is usually indicative of weakness, immaturity, stupidity, poor character and the like; something the Insufferable Genius would be too proud to realize.
