* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': In case the lion on their coat of arms and the motto "Hear me Roar!" didn't give it away, this is a unifying theme for the Lannisters. All of them have a subtly different take on it.

* The defining trait of Apollo Creed in the ''Franchise/{{Rocky}}'' franchise. He picks up underdog nobody fighter Rocky Balboa for a publicity stunt when his original "name" opponent pulls out; Creed doesn't take the fight seriously at first, approaching the whole thing like a game until Rocky knocks him down with one mean blow, something that had never happened before in his entire career. After an epic battle between the two the fight is so close that the judges have a hard time naming a true victor, but ultimately they give it to Creed, which comes back to bite him in the ass in the second film where Creed is angry and full of hurt pride over accusations from fans and critics that he cheated by rigging the fight with the judges earlier to give the title to him no matter what or he simply got lucky when they gave it to him. With his popularity and reputation crumbling as a result of the controversial and humiliating fight from the first film Creed becomes so obsessed with proving he didn't cheat that he forces his handlers to cook up a nasty smear campaign to get Rocky back in the ring for a rematch since it's the only way he knows of proving and redeeming himself in the eyes of his fans and critics. Once Rocky agrees to the rematch Creed trains harder than ever before and attacks Rocky like a force of nature in the ring [[spoiler:but after another epic fight Rocky ultimately defeats Creed, though at least Creed's fans and critics forgive him for an honest loss.]]\\\
[[spoiler:Sadly, Creed's pride ultimately brought about his death in ''Rocky IV'']].

* 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]]

Pride forms a powerful combination with {{Ambition|IsEvil}}, {{Greed}}, [[EvilOverlord Megalomania]] and [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity Insanity]], and these deadly sins have brought down more heroes and villains than {{Homer}} could shake a cudgel at; just see the many victims of the VillainBall and its subtropes. As a FatalFlaw and AchillesHeel, it is a classic that's OlderThanFeudalism and [[UndeadHorseTrope not likely to go away any time soon]]. There's a reason why this is one (and also the worst) of the SevenDeadlySins, and why a ''very minor'' character in Myth/ClassicalMythology is the TropeNamer for {{Narcissist}}ic Personality Disorder.

* ''VideoGame{{Geneforge}}'' series - The Shaper Council. If you choose to help a faction that opposes them, then they learn the hard way that yes, the rebellion ''can'' be a threat to them. Unfortunately, the other factions are often just as arrogant.

** In Season Six episode "The Gift of the Maud Pie" tackles this [[AesopAmnesia once more]]. Pinkie Pie is so driven by the desire to find a better gift than what her sister Maud Pie would give her that she totally misses the point of giving a gift to someone in the first place. Unlike ''Pinkie Pride'', however, it shows only the negative consequences of her Pride, as Pinkie ends up trading away her prized Party Cannon for a rock pouch, which in turn, makes her [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness completely miserable]]. Maud quickly picks up on this, and goes to get the Party Cannon back and set Pinkie straight as well.

* Franchise/{{Batman}} has been known to have pride issues, especially as his paranoia have been played up more and more over the years by writers.

* Pride is the defining trait of Doctor Doom. The accident that damaged his face happened because he was too arrogant to believe Reed Richards had found an error in his calculations. The minor scar Doom received he saw as horribly disfiguring due to his vanity, and in desperation to hide it he ended up ''really'' messing his face up. He was unable to even admit to himself of his mistake in either instance. His supervillain-sized lust for power is rooted in his belief that he should be second to no one, particularly Richards. This is also why he always rebuffs others' attempts to rehabilitate him. He just can't accept the pity and sympathy of others.

** This is the most common reason given for the downfall of the Kryptonian civilization. They are often depicted as one of the most powerful races of their time, and the very idea of the destruction of their planet is unthinkable. This leads them to mock [[IgnoredExpert Jor El]] and his warnings, and as a result of their hubris, only ''[[Comicbook/{{Superman}} a]]'' ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} few]]'' ''[[ComicBook/KryptoTheSuperdog survive]]''.

** 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.

* Discussed in ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'' 3e, which cautions that while it's possible to become [[OddJobGods Noble]] by eating a Power's heart, making plans to do so would be an example of hubris and would probably come back to bite you on the butt, possibly in the form of a giant scorpion. Through ''Nobilis''' history, Lucifer has been the Imperator of Pride and Persuasion, which is to say that it is because Lucifer exists that Pride, as a thing in itself, does as well.

* RobinHood stories tend to feature a trap set by the Sheriff of Nottingham in the form of an archery contest, as it is well known that Robin is the greatest archer in all the land. Robin is entirely aware of the nature of the trap, but generally goes anyway, because he has to prove he's the best.
