* ''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.

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. AcquiredSituationalNarcissism is a SubTrope, as are FairestOfThemAll, HolierThanThou, and InferioritySuperiorityComplex. See also SmallNameBigEgo and FallenAngel.

* This is Sunset's main flaw at the start of ''Fanfic/TheWitchOfTheEverfree''. She [[CharacterDevelopment gets better about it over time]], to the point where she manages to shock Cadance by admitting that Twilight is smarter than she is.

* ”Literature/TheIronTeeth” web serial’s forests are haunted by many different types of dangerous monsters. They are incredibly dangerous and a lot of people perish within them.

** Moldrock was a PhysicalGod who thought little of fighting with any amount of cunning and thought himself invincible. Then one day his chief scientist [[spoiler:Everett Ducklair]] knocked him out with a technology of his invention, put a PowerLimiter on him, woke him up, and [[SealedEvilInACan exiled him in a dimension where his powers were dampened]].

* In ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' the downfall of the Xerbian and Evronian civilizations and Moldrock's regime ultimately come down because of this:
** The Xerbians were so proud of their advanced technology they couldn't even ''conceive'' someone would dare to challenge their orbital defence, and [[WeComeInPeaceShootToKill when the Evronians negotiated a commercial treaty as cover for their invasion and asked them to lower their defences for a few minutes as a sign of peace they accepted]]. [[CurbStompBattle Those few minutes were all the Evronians needed to wreck the control of the orbital defences]].
** The otherwise DangerouslyGenreSavvy Evronians, thanks to their military might and having apparently won every single war of their history, severely underestimated the abilities of [[spoiler: the Xerbian scientists they had spared from being turned into [[SlaveMooks coolflames]] to use their advanced scientific knowledge. Thus they were completely blindsided when the last free Xerbians that they had just captured activated a device that [[SlaveLiberation brought back to normal every single coolflame on their]] PlanetSpaceship, allowing [[PhysicalGoddess Xadhoom]] to wipe them out now that they didn't have their hostages anymore. They also didn't expect Xadhoom to provide the energy to activate that device, as they thought the hostages were enough to keep her in check.]]
