* The Fort Severn arc of ''Anime/AfterWarGundamX'' has Garrod decline an upgrade to the Gundam because he thinks its WaveMotionGun makes him unbeatable. Then he runs into Carris Nautilus, a TykeBomb with PsychicPowers, who becomes the first person in the series to hand Garrod a ''resounding'' defeat. The next few episodes have a humbled Garrod get very serious about learning to pilot the Gundam without relying solely on its signature weapon.

** 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.
** [[SmugSnake Admiral Zhao]] is also an example of this, as his determination to make a name for himself by [[spoiler: killing the moon spirit]] not only incites the wrath of [[BadassGrandpa Iroh]], who tries to explain that such an action would cause inconceivable damage to the entire world, Fire Nation included, but also enrages the spirits of the ocean and the avatar enough to [[spoiler: obliterate his entire war fleet]]. In an earlier episode, he accidentally burned his own ships after Aang's insults provoked him into being sloppy with his [[KillItWithFire firebending]], and [[spoiler: his eventual death comes from his refusal to accept help from Zuko (the scene is a bit ambiguous, but preferring death to humiliation is one interpretation of his actions)]].

* Warlord Asura, the final warlord [[TheHero Sinjid]] is tasked with killing in ''VideoGame/{{Sinjid}}''. Due to Sinjid dispatching his troops and the other warlords before going after him, Asura only has one remaining ally left in the form of a mysterious man named Kazuro, who abandons him after explaining that he's grown tired of him constantly turning his help away because he was too overconfident in his fighting abilities. Having lost his last remaining ally, he is forced to fight Sinjid on his own, and is killed in combat, ending the war.
