* Litchfield from ''InstantClassic'' is a textbook one of these, although he often straddles the line between prima donna and pure madness. [[spoiler: Like the time he shot himself. Or the time he burned his own studio down ''while he was in it''.]] In fact, since most of the main characters are filmmakers, they all slip into this trope at some point.

* Molly Coddle adopts this attitude in the ''WesternAnimation/BumpInTheNight'' ChristmasEpisode "Twas the Night Before Bumpy" when nobody takes her seriously as pageant director. Fortunately, she sees the error of her ways and the other characters forgive her for being bossy and rude.

* Llewellyn Sinclair (Jon Lovitz), in the ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''' episode "A Streetcar Named Marge". He actually winds up on stage when he takes over Otto's role right before the performance, having realized Otto wasn't good enough.

* TomCruise's character in ''Film/TropicThunder'' is a spot-on example, except that Les Grossman is a ''producer'' instead of a director. Damien Cockburn also has shades of this ("The chopper is God and I am Jesus Christ His Son") but it isn't clear of whether it's an inherent trait or if it's the result of the pressure of having his feature film debut be a major blockbuster with a bunch of prima donna actors.
