* Revali, the [[BirdPeople Rito]] Champion from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. The first thing you find out about him is that he and the other Champions were swiftly killed and their respective Divine Beasts possessed when [[BigBad Calamity Ganon]] returned to Hyrule. When Link subsequently recovers his memories, Revali is revealed to have been a smug, vainglorious guy who was openly disdainful of relative newcomer Link being the primary Champion -- he went so far as to "challenge" Link to a test of skill atop [[GiantFlyer Vah Medoh]] just to rub in the latter's inability to fly. It takes being [[SealedGoodInACan trapped as a ghost inside Vah Medoh]] for a century and being freed by Link for Revali to finally acknowledge that the Hylian is worthy of being TheChosenOne.

** In ''The Invasion'', CorruptCorporateExecutive Tobias Vaughn thinks he can play the Cybermen for patsies. [[spoiler:He soon realizes he is OutGambitted, and [[RedemptionEqualsDeath is deleted trying to stop them]].]]

* The classic children's historical novel ''Literature/JohnnyTremain''. The main character is more skilled and harder-working than his fellow apprentices Dove and Dusty, and doesn't hesitate to remind them of that, and their master, Mr. Lapham, has Johnny read the part about [[ForeShadowing pride coming before a fall]]. While rushing to finish an order, Johnny gets a cracked crucible from Dove, resulting in molten silver spilling onto his hand, which fuses his thumb to his palm and ends his career as a smith.

* 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.

* 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]].
