* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, pride is the FatalFlaw of [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]]. This flaw is often ''literally'' fatal, because a dragon who is [[MightMakesRight challenged must accept]], and to [[DirtyCoward not do so]] is to call into question whether you're a true dragon in the first place.
** It also proves to be the FatalFlaw of ''Dragonborn's'' main villain, who thinks himself superior to mortals and dragons and wants to rule them. He even thinks himself intelligent enough to outsmart the Daedric lord of secrets and prophecy - ''in their own realm''.

* 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]].

*** Tywin's most defining trait. While this trope is precisely what drove Tywin to make House Lannister the most powerful one in Westeros, it also drove him to make it the most hated as well.
---> '''Tywin:''' The lion doesn't concern himself with the opinions of the sheep.
*** Cersei:
---> '''Cersei:''' He's attacked one of my brothers, and abducted the other. I should wear the armor, and you the gown. ''[Robert strikes her]'' I shall wear this like a badge of honor.
*** Jaime often comes across as very arrogant and uncaring of others. However his father Tywin points out this is merely how he wants to be viewed.
---> '''Jaime:''' I couldn't care less what anyone thinks of me.
---> '''Tywin:''' No, ''that's'' what you want people to think of you.
*** Tyrion believes that having too much pride is foolish and it's better to wear your flaws openly. Despite this, it does stick him that his father doesn't acknowledge any of his skills and contributions, even denying him the seat of the ancestral house ''which is his by right''. He admits this to Jaime who chides him for his spiel during his trial, noting that there's only so much he can stand up to abuse before snapping.
---> '''Tyrion:''' Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armour, and it can never be used to hurt you.

* ''Film/PitchPerfect'': Aubrey's main problem. She refuses to acknowledge that what she is doing might be wrong , that there are better ways to achieve her goals and to accept others' views on her plans when they disagree or have criticism. Despite the several issues her program has, she refuses to change until the group reaches the DarkestHour and is forced to admit her mistakes.

** As it turns out, the ENTIRE Reaper threat is due to a particularly nasty case of this. [[spoiler:The Leviathans, annoyed that their subjects kept making AI's that eventually destroyed themselves, made an AI to try and solve the problem. Shepard can rightly point out the idiocy in doing exactly what caused the destruction of their subjects themselves, and they just shrug it off by saying the concerns of 'lesser species' were beneath them. Even after the loss of their entire empire and being reduced to hiding in the deepest oceans, the Leviathan speaker still refuses to admit that creating it was a mistake. The entire galaxy today, them included, are now paying for their arrogance.]]

** ''Series/BetterCallSaul'' has Chuck McGill, a lawyer who is usually too stubborn to admit he's wrong, and is so ashamed of his EMP-intolerant condition that he risks his life to not be seen in public without a protective "space blanket".
