* The ''Anime/YourName'' side novel ''Another Side: Earthbound'' shows that Mitsuha's late mother was very revered by the Itomori townspeople, something that annoyed her father who just saw her as a normal person rather than a saint.

* MarkTwain's "Luck" is based on the supposedly true account of a clergyman who taught at Woolwich. According to the latter, "one of the two or three conspicuously illustrious English military names of this generation" was a good-hearted but utterly stupid soul who achieved much of his success due to sheer luck.

** Most ''ponies'' seem afraid of Celestia at first, except for those like [[TheSmartGuy Twilight Sparkle]] who are around her enough to know [[ModestRoyalty what she's really like]].

Miguel, Honore's valet, is only too happy to remind Honore of the many, many times that Honore has been cheated on by his various mistresses.

* Kincade the groundskeeper from ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' feels this way about James Bond. He might be one of Britain's best professional killers who has saved the country (if not the world) single-handedly many times, but he's still a "jumped-up little shit" if he thinks he can tell Kincade what to do. [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] since Kincade was unaware of James being a world-class spy. He is visibly shocked on seeing James' ace shooting before asking what was his profession.

* Played with for a little character-building moment in ''High School Caesar''. While Matt greets his harmless, matronly cook in a polite way and gives off the air of a humble and SpoiledSweet young man, he then calls in his butler -- someone who has actual, real power in the household -- and coldly informs him that he'll be fired if he can't manage to keep Matt's car in impeccable condition. As a result, only the butler is aware of how phony his whole act is.
-->'''Lucy:''' It seems like that boy's folks oughtta stay home, 'stead of gallivantin' all over Europe and places like that.\\
'''Carter:''' Well, I don't blame them -- if I had a brat like that, I'd take off, too.\\
'''Lucy:''' You just don't understand Matthew.\\
'''Carter:''' ''(Glancing at the camera)'' Oh, I've got him pegged, all right.
