** Secretariat was just as much as a CrowdPleaser as Mr. Peanutbutter and just as miserable as [=BoJack=]. He would often bask on the public's adoration while secretly falling apart because of how little he saw of himself in his audience's expectations. Fame, glory and love meaning everything for him, he was eternally fearful of falling into obscurity to the point of selling out his brother to the army as a replacement during UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar. Tripping into disgrace once he was found out betting in his own races, he was banned from racing, the only thing that made him feel alive and allowed to forget his problems, and as such he finally committed suicide. Forget [=BoJack=], Secretariat ''is'' the embodiment of compensatory narcissism as well as a chilling reminder of what can happen when such disorder is allowed to run rampant.

* In ''GoofTroop'' Pete is highly narcissistic (of course, he always is). He sees himself as perfect, and nothing could be better than his son PJ to grow up exactly as him - he can't grow up to be ''better'' because that suggests Pete could be improved upon. When his parenting methods prove inferior to Goofy's - and they always do - he is personally offended, but rather than saddened, becomes [[BerserkButton extremely agitated.]]

** [=BoJack=] has textbook compensatory narcissism with a deep rooted entitlement and high need of appreciation coming from an inferiority complex, with his actions being attempts to live up to who he thinks he should be for others and falling short of it. He also has Borderline Personality Disorder due to his disgust and craving of affection from even people he despises — like Mr. Peanutbutter — or knows are just trying to use him — like Angela and Ana. He's been also often interpreted as having clinical depression due to his lack of motivation and positive emotions as well as his self-defeating behavior and occasional suicidal ideation.
** His mother, Beatrice, has a more complex case of narcissism with a pot full of different shades of the spectrum: "amorous" (clingy attitude and territorial attitude even to those she dislikes just because they're hers), "elitist"(haughty, believes appearance and status to be everything, derides everything short of her image of perfection), "compensatory" (behavior largely out of insecurity, compensation) and even "fanatic" (she just can't let go of grudges, keeps any emotional actions as proof of her own beliefs) fit her to some degree.
** While nice about it, Mr. Peanutbutter fits the description of the shy, covert/compensatory narcissist: he wants people to be happy and often goes out of his way to make it so but rather than finding out what would make them so, he forgoes that in favor of his bases of what he assumes would make them happier. He also tries to be the cool guy so that people will feel comfortable around him and don't leave him at all, something which has happened in the past and has created him a complex. Not that he would come out and say it; better try passive-aggressive remarks in the form of concerned thoughts. There's also how much he wants things exactly as he envisions in spite of his carefree attitude, which he masks with niceness hoping that will make things go his way. His grandiose sense of projects without any backbone or purpose and insecurity about Diane also make him rather needy with his expressions of love being Grand Romantic Gestures.

# The character is [[SomebodyDoesntLoveRaymond extremely self-conscious of how he/she is perceived by others]]. Despite having little regard for those around them, his/her peace of mind hinges on receiving validation of their self-importance from others. However, unlike a character with AcquiredSituationalNarcissism, a pathological narcissist's grandiosity is not ''dependent'' on others' validation. Rather, it is the fact that these characters' egos are so inherently bloated that they perceive anything less than near-constant praise and adulation as a grievous injustice. Consequently, these characters regularly display a [[CantTakeCriticism glaringly low tolerance for criticism]] and a blatant [[NeverMyFault unwillingness to take responsibility for mistakes or outright wrongdoing]]. On the upside, a narcissist's obsession with projecting an image of infallibility renders them capable of internalizing at least ''SOME'' set of moral guidelines.

** [[Fanfic/MyNameIsCinder Cinder]] [[Fanfic/{{CRME}} Fall]] starts fitting the criteria of a narcissistic [[TheSociopath sociopath]] in this series. She’s incredibly egocentric and overconfident about her abilities and even brags about her [[spoiler: Fall Maiden]] powers ''before she even gets them''. She’s also insanely needy for validation since it’s not enough to just be strong and powerful. She wants to be ''feared'' for it, too. She tends to only consider others in the way that they relate to her. She is fond of Mercury because they have similar experiences with abuse and share [[{{Sadist}} certain]] [[TheSociopath traits]]. She likes having Emerald around because she is devoted to Cinder and she will put Emerald down when she starts being too bold. She wants total obedience. And she hates Watts because he makes it his mission to take her down a peg. She also doesn’t like having her decisions being criticized. Having [[spoiler: Salem]] treat her as the favorite child only helped to enable her ego.
