* ''Series/LittleLunch'':
** Atticus in "The Beep Test", who desperately tries to avoid the test purely so Tamara can't beat him. Once she sprains her ankle, he's totally enthusiastic for it.
** Debra Jo's also a pretty bad loser, as seen when she calls her mother to get her out of school when Mrs. Goncha holds a spelling test on words she doesn't know.

%%* During the 2016 Presidential Election, Creator/DonaldTrump was asked during the second Presidential Debate that if UsefulNotes/HillaryClinton won the election, would he accept it. His replies of "maybe" and "I'll keep you in suspense" were met with calls of this trope from Clinton supporters. On the other hand, some people have accused Clinton's supporters of being this when, after Trump won the election, they started protesting both online (with the popular hashtag [=#NotMyPresident=]) and in the real world. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement And that's as much as we'll say on this matter.]]

* Livebearer from ''{{Toriko}}''. Even more so because he was actually cheating all the time. Earlier there was Bei, who got childishly angry over Toriko destroying his battle robot.

* Nanamine of ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'', once his plans go wrong, has one VillainousBreakdown after another. This is especially true when [[spoiler:he fails his second attempt to launch a series and, as part of the deal with the editors, is banned from working for Shonen Jump]].* ''Manga/SangatsuNoLion'' has two cases of this, one done for humor and the other done for drama.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Bravestarr}}'': "Fallen Idol" showed how the Pride of one made a BrokenPedestal: Jingles Morgan lost a fighting match and fell off a bridge into mud. People laughed at his defeat, even his victorious opponent (which seems too close to Unsportsmanlike Gloating). In a moment of Uncontrollable Rage, he grabbed his nearby disintegrator pistol and blasted the opponent with it, killing him.

* In the StarTrekExpandedUniverse ''Literature/TheQContinuum'' trilogy, Q reveals a former acquaintance of his named 0 that is a mass-murdering example of this trope. With powers comparable to the Q, 0 is the one who teaches young Q the value of testing younger races. However, as Q finds out, 0 does ''not'' like to have the younger races beat his tests. The first example is when 0 and Q infiltrate the [[EnergyBeing Calamarain]] society but are discovered and expelled. 0, angry at this, freezes the Calamarain for centuries (if not millennia). This is the reason why they're later pissed off at Q. The second example involves 0 testing the ancient Tkon Empire whose homeworld's star is reaching the end of its life and will go nova within a century or two. Using their advanced technology, the Tkon are building a giant transporter around their star and around a faraway younger star with similar mass. The goal is to swap them. 0 invites three other omnipotent beings ([[Recap/StarTrekS3E4AndTheChildrenShallLead Gorgan]], [[Recap/StarTrekS3E7DayOfTheDove (*)]], and [[Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier The One]]) to help him "test" the Tkon. They end up starting a civil war between the inner and outer planets, but the Tkon manage to come together in the end and complete the project. In a final act of defiance, 0 reaches into the star and turns its fusion UpToEleven, resulting in a supernova that consumes the system and the surrounding systems, leaving barely anything of the Tkon Empire. The Q Continuum shows up too late to save the Tkon, but they manage to defeat 0 and his cronies.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ser Gregor Clegane, upon losing a joust to Ser Loras, decaptiates his own horse and then proceeds to attack the now-unarmed Loras. Right in front of the king and all the joust spectators.

** Although Loras doesn't do or say anything negative to Brienne after she wins their melee competition, he's shown to be bitter about his defeat when he speaks to Renly in private.

Added DiffLines:

* Jounralist Chip Berlet described the Birther Movement as as example of this trope, since it only came to to large-scale attention after Creator/BarackObama launched his campaign for the 2008 presidential election and eventually won it.
-->'''Berlet''': For some people, when their side loses an election, the only explanation that makes sense to them that they can cope with is that sinister, bad, evil people arranged some kind of fraud.
