* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Azula is very prideful and arrogant, though it does take awhile as any failures she does suffer she just brushes off, and to be fair [[MagnificentBastard she does win some pretty impressive victories along the way.]] However it isn't until she realizes that her technique of ruling through fear isn't as foolproof as she expected, and that her father considers her as expendable as Zuko, that she begins her fall.

* Emperor Kuzco of ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove''. We're made aware that he's a careless, self-absorbed emperor, and then the story begins as he's overthrown by Yzma and [[BalefulPolymorph turned into a llama]].
* ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''. A prince refuses to provide shelter for an old woman. She turns out to be a powerful enchantress who curses him ([[MoralDissonance and everybody in his castle, including a kid]]) for his judging her by her appearance. To be restored, the beast must learn to [[ThePowerOfLove love another and receive love in return]].
* Stitch in ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''. He goes from being a badass mutant escapee to a little girl's "dog". He learns an Aesop about the value of family and his gleeful feral edge is ... softened.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'', this is what happens to Sand Masters as a whole - they've grown so prideful and haughty, they've stopped caring about other people's opinions and figured they're too powerful to ever be attacked, so they've stopped training for combat as well. Cue being invaded by an army and slaughtered almost to a man.

* In MaiOtome, newly crowned Queen Mashiro is more concerned about her birthday celebration and rebuilding her castle than about the lives of the commoners. This changes when Nagi's plan results in him controlling Windbloom and forcing her into exile with the poor people of her country, where she hears of their suffering and watches as [[spoiler:they corner her maid Aoi and cause her to fall off a cliff when she refuses to tell them where Mashiro is, mainly because of her having served the Queen]].

* With his team needing a run in the bottom of the 9th inning and two runners on base, the namesake batter of ''Literature/CaseyAtTheBat'' deliberately took the first two pitches for called strikes because he didn't like them. He strikes out on the next pitch.

** Happens ''every'' time Vegeta gets a huge power boost. He goes to Namek, stronger than ever after his fight on Earth, and gets nearly killed by a transformed Zarbon. After he got a boast from that battle, the Ginyu Force comes and wipe the floor with him. Then again, he gets a major power-up to fight Frieza and he gets easily murdered. His luck doesn't improve in the Cell or Buu Sagas. By the end of the series, he finally became more humble.

* You know, despite the fact Count Dooku was a Sith, Anakin really should have heeded his warning about "Twice the pride, double the fall" in "Film/RevengeOfTheSith".

* ''Series/.MyNameIsEarl''. A petty criminal with no respect for authority has a lottery ticket. He loses his ticket and undertakes to reform himself. When he starts, the ticket returns to him and he sees it as a sign that he's meant to use the money to keep trying.

** Also, Ryoma in the anime goes through another of these. [[spoiler: He behaves uninterested and apathetic towards [[{{Tykebomb}} Kevin Smith]] until he sees him play, then pretty much ''demands'' to be included in the line-up of the Senbatsu team. Tezuka [[WhatTheHellHero does]] ''[[WhatTheHellHero NOT]]'' [[WhatTheHellHero take this kindly]] and promptly [[ArmorPiercingSlap b*tchslaps]] Ryoma in front of others, since his selfishness sounded extremely out of place for someone supposed to become a future leader in Seigaku. Ryoma has to go into a PoseOfSupplication to regain Tezuka's favor and be even ''considered'' as a reserve player.]] Due to ValuesDissonance (teamwork v/s stardom, Japanese mentality v/s Western views), the episode is often derided by fans.

* Marietta in ''VideoGame/KnightsInTheNightmare'', at least in Maria's route; happily enough, Maria is ''mortified'' at what Marietta's pride led to, and [[spoiler:the other half of Marietta's soul]], Melissa, is more worried about finding Ancardia than her dignity. We're introduced to Marietta's usual [[GoodIsNotNice nasty attitude]] in ''VideoGame/YggdraUnion'' [[spoiler:and ''RivieraThePromisedLand'']], along with [[BreakTheHaughty Meria's route]]. (And for [[AxCrazy all]] [[SociopathicHero her]] [[ChaoticNeutral flaws]], Meria's own pride doesn't stop her from being a loyal and caring individual. Marietta's still does.)
