Compare: TheAtoner (who is necessarily repentant by definition), ATasteOfPower (for when this happens in video games), or BreakTheHaughty for a slower descent. It also may overlap with FallenPrincess and TragicHero.

If you're looking for pride before a ''literal'' fall, see DisneyVillainDeath. On a cultural or setting level see LookOnMyWorksYeMightyAndDespair, SoiledCityOnAHill, and AndManGrewProud.

* Trevor James Goodkind of the WhateleyUniverse, brilliant son of the richest man on Earth, second in line to take over his father's company, and heir to the Goodkind tradition of 'recognizing the mutant threat', i.e. hating those evil mutants. In the first chapter of his first story, he manifests as a mutant freak. He is immediately disinherited, experimented on and tortured by a MadScientist, humiliated, abandoned by his family, not to mention becoming intersexed due to his mutation ... Within a week he's living in a basement with nowhere else to go.
