** Mr. Satan maybe Earth's hero to all the {{Muggle}}s, but the Z-Figthers knows he is a FakeUltimateHero and treats him as such. After he becomes part of the group he does gets more respect especially from Goku and his son-in-law Gohan, but Videl isn't afraid to stand up to him even before she learned that he didn't defeat Cell.

** Harry's father, James Potter, is often lauded to Harry by many as a paragon of the virtues that Gryffindor stands for, with the exception of Severus Snape, albeit that is mainly because both men mutually despised one another, albeit fr different reasons (Snape's being [[GreenEyedMonster envious]][[TheResenter of James' life compared to his.]] Eventually, Harry gets a look into Snape's past, and sees James using magic (later revealed to be one of Snape's invented spells) to mess with Snape and Harry is surprised and shocked to see Lily's vehement reaction (though this is because she was Snape's friend, albeit the memory was also that where Lily reached her limit with Snape). Lupin and Sirius later reassure Harry that they were just immature at that age and that he shouldn't let it get to him.
*** Snape's attitude and comment also hint that it was a matter of pride; all of his accusations toward James' bigheadesness could easily be said the same of Snape.

* River Song, [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor's]]... [[HaveWeMetYet whatever]] constantly undermines his brilliance, at one point flying the TARDIS flawlessly (when the Doctor seems to think six pilots are required for that) and informing him its characteristic landing sound was due to his leaving the brakes on. She does mention him teaching her at one point which might suggest that he's simply less practical than her.[[note]]However, we later find out that ''he'' didn't teach her a thing - she was taught ''by the TARDIS herself''. No wonder she's so good![[/note]] Over time it's revealed the trope is more downplayed than we're lead to believe, she does think he's an amazing hero, but is reluctant to let him know (and get a big head).

* WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog: While Captain Hammer is seen as a major hero (perhaps even a country-wide one), the [[AntiVillain Anti-Villain]] [[VillainProtagonist Protagonist,]] Doctor Horrible, sees him as a total dick. He's probably right.

Eventually, Harry gets a look into Snape's past, and sees James using magic (later revealed to be one of Snape's invented spells) to mess with Snape and Harry is surprised and shocked to see Lily's vehement reaction (this is because she was still Snape's friend though their friendship fell apart soon after). Lupin and Sirius later reassure Harry that they were just immature at that age and that he shouldn't let it get to him.

*** The hero aspect is a bit more literal when you remember that James ''saved'' Snape's life when they were back in school (sometime after said incident), which did nothing more but infuriate Snape for being in James' debt.

** Sparadrap's real life job seem to have him be just famous enough to get interviewed from time to time. However, one of his lines from Season 2 hint that one of the reasons he gets away with spending lots of time on the MMORPG in which the story is set is that his father and grandmother prefer having him play video games than doing anything else. His guildmates also count as he's a {{Noob}} at the MMORPG in question.

* Nanoha from ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' is a legendary combat instructor and known throughout the multiverse as the [[RedBaron Ace of Aces]]. So naturally, her students are shocked to find out that her family treats her like a completely ordinary girl. In fact, her mother and sister were apparently unaware of her reputation until Teana brought it up in the first ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers StrikerS]]'' [[AllThereInTheManuel Sound Stage]].
