Occasionally, grownups will do it too, especially those who have [[WellDoneSonGuy had]] [[DisappearedDad daddy]] [[ParentalAbandonment issues]], though they're more likely to compare their kids, if they have any.

* In the ''Literature/ArabianNights'', there's an odd example; a man was carried off by a JerkassGenie on the night he conceived a son with the daughter of the Vizier of Egypt. So the son thought [[FamilyRelationshipSwitcheroo his grandfather was his father]] and kept lording it over everyone else at school by saying his father was the Vizier of Egypt. At least, until the schoolmaster and the Vizier are fed up with this and tell him the truth.

* In ''VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}}'', Gatherer's Garden uses this trope to prey on adult insecurities in order to sell plasmids: "My daddy's ''[[SuperIntelligence smarter]]'' than [[UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein Einstein]], ''[[SuperStrength stronger]]'' than {{Hercules}} and can [[PlayingWithFire light a fire]] with a ''snap'' [[FingerSnapLighter of his fingers!]] Are you as good as my daddy, Mister?

* In ''WesternAnimation/OKKOLetsBeHeroes,'' K.O. gets into this kind of argument with a random LizardFolk bully. After the initial awkwardness of K.O. explaining that [[DisappearedDad he never knew his dad]], he counters with similar claims about his mom Carol. [[ActionMom Carol]] does agree to go to the planned fight so that she and the bully's dad can talk reasonably and set a good example...but naturally he's not interested, and a fight ensues. (Oh, and the bully's dad [[{{Kaiju}} is about the size of a building]].)

** Randy Marsh also has a tendency to get sloshed during the kids' sports games and instigating fights with the opposing team's dads. He makes a nemesis in "Batdad", a large, fat, shirtless dad in a Franchise/{{Batman}} cape and cowl.

* ZigZagged in ''Anime/MoribitoGuardianOfTheSpirit'''s FestivalEpisode: a boy from a band of nomads insults the Yogo Empire's emperor, which is naturally a sore spot for Chagum, [[KingIncognito a prince pretending to be a peasant]]. (His dad's [[OffingTheOffspring questionable choices]] do not dissuade Chagum's admiration.) The initial challenge is actually a battle between the two boys, which Chagum wins; however, when the boy won't take back his insult, and the boy's father won't force him, [[LadyOfWar Balsa]] (Chagum's [[ParentalSubstitute supposed]] [[GenderInverted mother]]) challenges the father, and of course, beats him.

* For owners of mixed-breed dogs there was a t-shirt reading "My mutt can beat up your purebred".

* ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures,'' a variation on this when Buster Bunny gets into an argument with someone and tries to one-up the argument with "Well, my lawyer can beat up your lawyer!"

* Hilariously subverted in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' where Chris brags to Meg how much smarter his dad is than Meg's, only for Meg to remind him they both have the same father.
