** Gohan has subtle one as well: whenever he is powerful enough to overcome his opponents with ease, he lets it get to his head. Despite being powerful enough to end the fight with ease, he'll toy with his opponent and put them into a corner, forcing them to lash out and overcome his power, as both Cell and Super Buu can attest.

* In ''Franchise/StarCraft'' ''Brood War'', Admiral Dugalle's FatalFlaw was pride. Samir Duran exploited Dugalle's pride in his forces to convince him to destroy the Psi Disrupter. When [[HypercompetentSidekick Vice Admiral Stukov]] went behind Dugalle's back by secretly relocating the Disrupter, rightly believing it was their best chance to defeat the Zerg, Duran plays Dugalle's hurt ego and manipulates him into ordering the death of his best friend. In the final cinematic scene depicting the remnants of Dugalle's fleet fleeing the sector [[spoiler:right before they are wiped out by the Zerg Kerrigan sent to pursue them]], Dugalle writes a final letter to his wife. In it, Dugalle confesses that his pride killed Alexei and consumed him as well. Immediately after finishing the letter he commits suicide.

** 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 to become a Super Saiyan God since it was a level he couldn't reach on his own. Several characters have actually called Goku out for being too prideful.

* Tony Stark of ''Film/IronMan'' has to deal with his issues with pride and relearn humility each film appearance. The effects of his pride often are the immediate causes of the problems he is having to fight.

* Pride is key to plot in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda''. Shifu was too proud of his [[TheGift prized pupil]] Tai Lung, whom he valued as a son, to realize that Tai Lung was proud to the point of being arrogant. When Oogway denied Tai Lung the Dragon Scroll, he went berserk, carving a swath of devastation through the valley and trying to kill Shifu before being stopped by Oogway.\\\

At the end, after getting thoroughly trounced by Po, he fails to understand the meaning of the Dragon Scroll that he had sought for so long, which is that you don't need to seek out some ultimate secret to reach your full potential: the power is already within you. His pride does not allow him to consider that he might have been wrong about everything, and he [[spoiler: dies... we think...]] refusing to accept that he had lost to, in his words, a "big, fat panda."

* Andrew from ''Film/{{Chronicle}}'', while originally painfully shy and introverted, begins to find popularity by dint of his newly-granted superpowers. One of his other superpower-enabled friends half-jokingly claims that, now that he possesses such extreme confidence, his hubris will then lead to his downfall. Andrew responds by [[{{GenreBlindness}} asking what "hubris" means]].
* ''Film/CruelAndUnusual'': This seems to be what's holding some of the condemned back, such as Julien, who refuses to let the authorities see him break.

* The [[OurElvesAreBetter Minbari]] of ''Series/BabylonFive'' is [[PlanetOfHats an entire species of this]]. Same with the Centauri, who fuss over their glorious and long-be-gone past until their planet is reduced to rubble, the Narn, who fuss over their grudges with the Centauri and the need to take a rightful place in the galaxy until, you guessed it, their planet is reduced to rubble, Vorlons and the Shadows. The last two are worst (they incite genocidal wars and run species into extinction just to prove that their tutory strategy is the best one) and they are the ones that get away relatively easy. Huh. And ''then'' there are the Humans, who manage to blunder into a disastrous war with the considerably more powerful Minbari purely out of arrogant carelessness. Really, there's [[DysfunctionJunction more than enough of this to go around]] in the B5 universe.

** The Doctor can fall into this, given his SmugSuper tendencies, and it's a notable part of the Tenth incarnation's personality. One of Ten's last appearances, in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E16TheWatersOfMars "The Waters of Mars"]], has him basically go into AGodAmI mode with massive hubris, but then end up as much more humble afterward after his arrogance is crushed. Though it is justified, considering how the Doctor was raised by the Time Lords, who pretty much keep priding themselves as the most powerful civilization in the universe; compared to that, the Doctor is the most humble Time Lord there is.
** In the story [[Recap/DoctorWhoS20E6TheKingsDemons "The King's Demons"]], Hugh's anger over the way the Doctor saved his life in a DuelToTheDeath is inspired by this, as his parents observe.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'': After his defection, this was revealed to be Chad Dickson's fatal flaw. [[spoiler:He has always considered himself to be the best, and his obsession with being at the top is his drive, to the point that when Nigel was considered to be better than him, Chad tried to ''kill'' him]].



* ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'':
** Specifically brought up as a trait of Tygra's and tigers in general. Pride is Tygra's defining flaw for much of the series, driving him to constantly try to prove himself as better than Lion-O in almost every aspect, as well as causing him to be the most prejudiced member of the [=ThunderCats=]. That he's a royal, albeit adopted, doesn't help much either. Spoiler: this pride proved to be unfounded when in "The Trials of Lion-O", Lion-O is believed to be dead and Tygra has to take over as leader, only to end up getting the entire team caught when his plan fails miserably. He laments in the jail cell that he didn't know what to do, and while he always criticized Lion-O's plans, they always worked out while all he managed to do was get everyone captured.
** [[spoiler:In "Native Son," we meet the Tiger Clan and Tygra's father Javan, and as it turns out pride was their downfall. The tigers and Tygus were too proud to join Leo when he rebeled against Mumm-Ra and split from them. When a plague was killing them, they were too proud to seek aid from Thundera and sought help from the Ancient Spirits (of Evil) instead. The Spirits agreed to cure everyone if Javan killed Tygra, but when he saved Tygra instead, the spirits cursed the tigers, letting the plague kill them all and forcing them to haunt their home as undead ghosts, only able to pass on if one of them could overcome their pride and show humility. Tygra's father even tries to keep all this a secret and drive Tygra away rather than have to admit what happened when Tygra becomes bitter about being sent away, all out of pride. Even in this case Tygra's pride gets in the way of seeing that his father was trying to save him from the plague, and it's only when he finds out about the curse that he forgives his father, which ends up lifting the curse. As you can see, pride causes a lot of problems.]]

ItsAllAboutMe, AGodAmI, KneelBeforeZod, NothingCanStopUsNow, GrudgingThankYou and DontYouDarePityMe are [[GeniusBonus proud]] stock phrases. Proud people are also very likely to suffer from MoralMyopia (to the point of [[KnightTemplar being convinced to be the only righteous one]]). ComeToGawk is frequently uncommonly painful for the proud -- and the proud are uncommonly likely to jump to the conclusion that someone did come to do just that. The GreenEyedMonster often accuses the envied person of Pride -- justly or unjustly, or the person with Pride could be the one getting envious. AcquiredSituationalNarcissism is a SubTrope, as are FairestOfThemAll, HolierThanThou, and InferioritySuperiorityComplex. See also SmallNameBigEgo and FallenAngel.

** Though a good and moral person, this can be a character flaw of Jon's. His confidence in the superiority of his abilities often causes him to lose sight of the bigger picture and complain about the unfairness of his life. Good thing he has Sam and friends to put things in perspective for him.

Sozin knows he is irredeemable, but has far to much pride to openly admit that he committed horrible acts of evil and thus the war continues on for nearly a century after his death.
