* ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'': Escanor is one of the titular Sins and knight to the kingdom of Liones. He bears the Lion's Sin of Pride because of his own personal sin. His pride led him to a situation from which he feels he needs to atone for. He is also one of the most dangerous of the group as he grows stronger from dawn until the day progresses to noon, and then weakens until dusk. Even with his large ego, in the day form, he is a good person who cares for his comrades and genuinely pities, rather than hates, his enemies because they are just so weak and pathetic compared to him. It really isn't much of a challenge.

** Goku has a more subtile case of pride, but it is still noticeable. He refuses to ask for assistance, even when he's being beating up, and doesn't really like outside help. When he was sick fighting Android 19, he refused any help and kept fighting until he was physically knocked down and had his energy sucked. His Saiyan pride also didn't allow him to eat a Senzu to restore his health, although Cell wanted him to eat one, and he didn't like that he needed help to beat Buu or how he became a Super Saiyan God since it was a level he couldn't reach on his own. Several characters have call Goku out for being too prideful.

* [[VideoGame/FatalFury Geese]]... [[SNKBoss poor]], [[ThatOneBoss poor]] [[BlondesAreEvil Geese]]. If it weren't for his... excessive pride, he wouldn't be stuck to the pavement like a mancake right now.

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'': [[MeaningfulName Lucifer]] is the eldest of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Stakes of Purgatory]]. Naturally, she has quite a bit of Pride in this position, which makes sense, considering that's the sin she embodies. [[spoiler: This makes her DefeatByModesty at the hands of Kanon in the third arc all the more hilarious]]. However, the Stakes Valentine's Day side story reveals that she's actually the least competent of her sisters, and her TIPS reveal that she takes great pleasure in surrendering.

* ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' - Tremere, founder of the clan of the same name, essentially tore a massive hole in vampiric society and damned himself and all followers to eternal tribulation simply because he was too proud to admit he could fail.
** Very deep in the back story, Absimiliard, the progenitor of the Nosferatu clan, killed his sire for scarring his (in his opinion) perfect face during his Embrace. In punishment, his grandsire Caine cursed the entire clan with inhuman hideousness.

fail in his attempts to maintain House Tremere's magical immortality.
** The rest of the clan are also quite prone to this. Indeed, ''House of Tremere'' reveals that pride was the impetus for agreeing to the transformation in the vampires: they were so invested in [[UnequalRites the superiority of their own magic]], that they came to the conclusion that [[TheMagicGoesAway magic was actually dying]] simply because their means of immortality were failing them, and vampirism was the only means of continuing the House's existence; in reality, magic was simply ''changing.'' This hubris continues even into the 20th century: quite contrary to the clan belief that magic and all its practitioners would soon be extinct, [[TabletopGame/MageTheAscension the Order of Hermes]] still exists in the modern nights - but the Tremere will never admit or acknowledge it.
** Very deep in the back story, Absimiliard, the progenitor of the Nosferatu clan, killed his sire for scarring his (in his opinion) perfect face during his Embrace. In punishment, his grandsire Caine cursed the entire clan with inhuman hideousness. Proving that he didn't learn anything from the punishment, Absimiliard has become so fixated in regaining his lost beauty that he's prepared to hunt down and murder every last childe in his attempts to appease Caine.
** The Lasombra Clan, dedicated narcissists and self-styled masters of the earth, have never made much secret of their innate belief in their own right to rule: they still gloat how it was ''their'' clan who made the first strike against the Antediluvians, and all other members of the Sabbat were merely imitators. Furthermore, their SocialDarwinist tactics are intended to purge the weak and the unwanted from potential members of the clan, so that no weaklings or failures dare sully the clan's membership: even the tests imposed on potential childer weed out those who might succumb to self-doubt or humility, leaving only the most proud. [[spoiler: This finally backfires on them in [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Gehenna]], when pride-fueled Darwinism leaves them too depleted to stand on their own - forcing them into a humiliating alliance with their most hated enemy, the Ventrue.]]

* Wrestling/JayLethal became the most dominant champion in pro wrestling[[labelnote:*]]At least among those [[ReviewersAreTheGospel topping the PWI 500]][[/labelnote]] after he won both the Wrestling/RingOfHOnor Television and World Titles, becoming the promotion's third triple crown winner. However, he ''was'' beatable, as proved by Wrestling/RoderickStrong and Wrestling/ColtCabana, largely in part to his ego, which Truth Martini had to reign in to ensure both titles were not defended in the Strong case and that he didn't jump into unnecessary matches, which Martini couldn't do in the Cabana case.[[/folder]]

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' - Every bad thing that has happened to the mages in the TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness, from the [[CosmicHorror Abyss]] to the [[EnemyWithout released Goetia]], can be traced back to mages who [[SchmuckBait decided to push the proverbial big red button]] and were too hubristic to consider the consequences of their actions. Indeed, a major theme is that all evil is ultimately human evil in Mage.
