** 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.]] ** Moldrock was a PhysicalGod who thought little of fighting with any amount of cunning and thought himself invincible.

* [[LawfulNeutral Nemesis' main job was to punish such acts]]. The Greeks believed in her power so much that, upon crushing a Persian army at Marathon (the first time a Greek force defeated a Persian one in open field) and finding out they had brought a large block of marble to make a commemorative stone to their impending victory, the Athenians were quick to decide it had been Nemesis to give them their victory and use that marble to make her a magnificent statue.

* To quote the [[Comicbook/{{Superman}} Man of Steel]] himself. "[[ComicBook/LexLuthor Luthor]] is my greatest [[{{Archenemy}} enemy]]. Not because of his [[ManOfWealthAndTaste wealth.]] Not because of the [[Main/WeaponsAndWieldingTropes weaponry]] he creates. Not because of [[{{Greed}} greed]], not even because of [[EvilTropes evil]]. But because he cannot be '''humbled'''. [[{{ComicBook/Justice}} No matter what happens to him]]."

* The Olympians from the ComicBook/IncredibleHercules suffer pride worse than the Asgardians. Hercules, while a good guy, has attacked people who he believes insulted him or take attention away from him. The other Olympians are about the same either wanting mortals to worship them again or reacting badly to challenges of their godhood. Once when rendered mortal, Zeus completely broke after a few hours out of broken pride and fear. Hercules at least is used to it.

* In ''Shadow Puppets,'' one of the EndersGame sequels, Virlomi sets herself up as a [[AGodAmI holy woman/god on earth]] to lead a resistance movement in India against the Chinese occupation. After a long sequence of everything going right for her against rivals she knows are better than she is, she becomes convinced that she really is either divine or favored by the gods, and carelessly leads her army into an obvious trap.

* In ''[[LegacyOfTheDrowSeries Starless Night]]'', Drizzt Do'Urden leaves his friends behind to see if he can head off the coming storm all by himself. Not only does he fail, not only would he have died if his friends (and even some enemies) hadn't rescued him, but he arguably makes things ''worse''. This would be fine...if it weren't for Drizzt's proclivity for [[ContemplateOurNavels endless navel-gazing]] on various philosophical themes and subjects in his journal, [[{{Anvilicious}} just in case you missed the point]].

* The Great Curse for the Sidereal {{Exalted}} is based around the structure of "make hubristic decision, execute competently". Solars are also prone to this, as their peerless excellence turns in on itself and becomes peerless arrogance. Other Exalts cheerfully dive into this on an individual basis.

** The SevenDeadlySins are divided up among five different types of demons: Rage (wrath), Hunger (gluttony), Sloth, Desire (greed, envy, and lust), and Pride. Pride Demons are considered the strongest of the five types by the Chantry because the emotion that they feed off of is the most human and complex.

Oddly, while some Pride Demons can be interacted with, only a few attempt to manipulate the player psychologically; their main threat comes from the fact that [[MightyGlacier they're huge and hit like a MAC truck]].

** 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 refused to allow him to eat a Senzu to restore his health, although Cell wanted him to eat one, and he didn't like 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.
