* 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, though she could have been just messing with him.[[note]]However, we later find out that ''he'' didn't teach her a thing - she was taught ''by the TARDIS herself''; furthermore, the TARDIS is the second mother of River Song (River was conceived by Amy and Rory while on the TARDIS so she wasn't born wholly human.)[[/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).

** Mr. Satan maybe Earth's hero to all the {{Muggle}}s, but the Z-Fighters 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.

* In a ''Webcomic/SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=2134 comic]], Literature/DonQuixote kills the last dragon, who was hiding in a windmill. When Sancho praises him for his heroic deed, Don rebukes him. Sancho proceeds to write Don Quixote as the senile lunatic we know and love.

* Kif Kroker from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' knows all too well that Zapp Brannigan is nothing more than a cowardly braggart whose "exploits" are sewn wholesale from a lavish blend of [[WeHaveReserves sending wave after wave of his own men to their deaths]], [[SuicideMission turning any mission into a death sentence]] and [[BlatantLies outright lies.]] Any such comment from Zapp is inevitably met with [[DeadpanSnarker snark and a depressed sigh.]] Turanga Leela is also this to Zapp for much the same reasons, though also because he's a huge lech who wont stop hitting on her and[=/=]or gloating to everyone about the one time he managed to trick her into pity sex with him back when she still had some respect for him.

* ''Manga/{{Horimiya}}'': Hori doesn't understand why so many girls have the hots for the cool and refined Sengoku because she's known him since they were toddlers and can't see him as anything other than the ExtremeDoormat cry-baby he used to be.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Coco}}'': Ernesto de la Cruz was a musician and singer beloved by his hometown and all of Mexico. However, he walked out on his family to become a musician in the first place, something they never forgave him for and for which they tried to distance themselves from him as much as possible, including banning music. They never even told Miguel that he's related to him until he found out for himself.

However, Hector is rather unimpressed with him, which he walked justifies by saying that he taught him everything he knows. [[spoiler:He graciously leaves out on the fact that Ernesto stole his family to become a musician in guitar and all of the first place, something they songs he wrote, and never forgave gave him any credit for it, not breaking his silence until he's so close to being forgotten and for which they tried to distance themselves from him as much as possible, including banning music. They never even told Miguel seeing his daughter again that he's related to him until he found out for himself.
