* [[DishingOutDirt Gaara]] in the first part of ''{{Manga/Naruto}}'' start as cool and stern in battle, as nothing can virtually harm him. As Lee (and later Sasuke) start breaking through his defense, he reacts badly (namely, he ends up crushing Lee's legs and in the second battle starts turning in the Shukaku demon).
** [[spoiler:Madara. Just Madara. His fighting style is based on making up an incredibly broken defense or attack system against his opponents and when they manage to overcome it due to hard work and strategy, he pulls out an even more broken technique.]] A big part of the series is due to [[spoiler:Madara not being able to cope with Hashirama beating him in everything.]]

* Ash Ketchum from ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' gets ''really'' upset at the end of the first season when his friend beats him during a tournament, causing him to be eliminated, although he had a ''very'' good reason to be upset. His Charizard fell asleep in the middle of the match (this was during a time when Charizard refused to obey Ash's orders and would only listen if his opponents were strong). Because his other Pokémon were used up while trying to escape Team Rocket, Ash wound up losing by disqualification. On top of that, Ash fell victim to an utterly bizarre call by the ref when one of his Pokemon "lost" solely by getting hit by his opponent's Sleep Powder (in addition to being absurdly cheap, in every other battle in the series, a Pokemon that's put to sleep is given an opportunity to wake up again before being declared out.) That said, he quickly composes himself and gives a gracious congratulations to his friend in public, and keeps the rest of his moping private, merging this into GracefulLoser to an extent.

* In an issue of ''[[ArchieComics Betty and Veronica]]'', Veronica [[DoubleSubversion double subverts]] this by wanting to show what a good loser she is in the BeautyContest, but then shoves the trophy in Betty's face.

* Stan Smith of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' apparently spent years of his life convincing himself that winning was all that mattered; he even cut his own son from the team. When Steve responded by forming all the kids Stan cut into a RagtagBunchOfMisfits and actually winning, Stan's first response is to [[DrivenToSuicide attempt suicide]]. He does it again after losing a carnival game (even though Steve points out that they're rigged so ''nobody'' can win). Eventually Steve talks Stan down by [[SympatheticPOV making him imagine how it would feel for his own father to kick him off the football team]], which results in Stan finding another way to vent his frustration: crying.

* Admiral Zhao from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. After losing to Zuko in an [[WizardDuel Agni Kai]], he attempts to get a shot at him in the back as he's walking away only for Iroh to block it and berate him for it, [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech stating that even if Zuko was in exile, he still had way more honor than Zhao]]. This takes a much darker turn in the season finale, when Iroh tells him to give up the [[ItMakesSenseInContext fish that embodies the moon spirit's physical being]]. After doing what Iroh says, Zhao kills it immediately after in a fit of blind rage.

* None of The Misfits in ''WesternAnimation/{Jem}}'' take losing terribly well however Pizzazz is the worst by far. She has quite a complex about [[SecondPlaceIsForLosers coming in second]], but all she ''does'' is come in second to Jem.

* From ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', you have [[spoiler: Bernkastel, the true BigBad of the story. The reason she does everything she does past Episode 5 is because of this. Trying to [[GenreDeconstruction destroy the heart of the story]], [[MurderIsTheBestSolution murdering Beatrice's incarnation in another world]], [[KickTheDog ruing Ange's life and turning her against her family]] and [[SchrodingersCat trying to break open the catbox and]] [[KillEmAll permakilling everyone involved in the story of Rokkenjima]] is all because Battler beat her humiliatingly in Episode 5. In Episode 8, it's revealed she quite literally only cannot understand fun, only winning. And then you have her VillainousBreakdown in Episode 8 when Battler is the first person in many centuries to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome penetrate her invincibility]] [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu and beat her down over]] [[MegatonPunch and again]].]]

* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': When [[spoiler:she was again defeated by [[EldritchAbomination Bardiel]],]] Asuka was sore, moody and irritable for several days.
-->"I still can't believe I lost again!" the redhead mumbled out of the blue.\\
Again...\\
"Asuka, we're alone." Shinji yawned. "Misato left while you were taking a shower."\\
"So what?"\\
He gave her a curious look. It had been a while since he had seen her grumpy like this, at least without just acting it. "You're not saying that you still take something like that so personally, are you?"\\
"And what if I do?" she grumbled and rolled on her side, turning away from him.\\
"Oh, Asuka..." He chuckled at her behavior. For someone who had always thought of herself as mature, she sure had kept some childish attitudes even after actually going through adulthood. At least that's what he hoped it was...

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' episode "The Devil to Pay", diabolic game show host Dib Devlin is a sore loser. He tricks the heroes into an [[DeadlyGame infernal game show]] where they risk their souls, luring them into it by offering a trip to Tahiti as a grand prize. When they manage to win, he decides to kill them, because he never said he's spare their lives. They manage to escape, however, and Venkman forces him to give them the trip. (He includes three tons of deviled ham with the prize, likely to annoy them.)

** Also, Roger is one every time Andy beats him at chess or golf, which is all the time, because he stinks at both. Ironically, Andy ''hates'' playing him at both (partially ''because'' he's a Sore Loser, but also because he's obsessed.) Ironically, Andy was a Sore Loser at chess in the ''very first strip'', telling Roger he was sleeping on the couch after he checkmated her. (Although, future strips would show [[UnsportsmanlikeGloating he's a sore winner too]].)

* In one Sunday ''{{Peanuts}}'' strip, after Lucy strikes out while playing baseball, she says she deserves four strikes because she's a girl. They give her one, but she misses again. Then she says she should get five because she was sick yesterday. Again, they give her one, but she misses again. Then she smarmily says she should get six because she's so cute. But they don't give her one. She storms off saying, "What kind of stupid game is this where you only get six strikes?"
