* ''Videogame/FireEmblemFates'' has the ChildProdigy Hayato, an InsufferableGenius spellcaster from the Wind Tribe. While most of the time he pretends to be unaffected and [[TheStoic stoic]] in [[AdorablyPrecociousChild order to seem mature]], he reveals a [[FieryRedhead more excitable and competitive side]] occasionally; in his supports with Orochi, he becomes obsessed with proving himself the better herbalist, and ends up taunting and teasing her when he wins. He seems determined to not be outshone on the battlefield as well, as his [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration personal combat skill]], [[{{Pride}} "Pride,"]] allows him to deal extra damage to units that are higher-leveled than him.

* Signum of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', though as a [[LadyOfWar knight]], she doesn't let it get ''too'' much in the way of her duty. When she found out that the enemy she had soundly trounced before had gotten a BiggerStick and can match her blow per blow, she reacted with sheer joy, and more than a twinge of regret that she can't let her heart out to play in the battle since she had a goal to achieve.

* The same can could be said for fellow BloodKnight[=/=]SociopathicHero Alucard from ''{{Manga/Hellsing}}'', though he may be in it for [[DeathSeeker different reasons]].

* Shizune Hakamichi of ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' likes to take ''everything'' from schoolwork, to recruiting people for the Student Council, to carrying a box up a hill or deciding what to do with a piece of veal cutlet bread a contest or a game. [[BaseBreaker The fandom is split on whether this makes her charming and endearing or obnoxious and annoying.]]

** A slightly less extreme example is Mamoru, the Star Social Link--a track star who really just likes to test himself. His Social Link concerns how to maintain this in the face of ever-growing family troubles.

* In ''Literature/ThisImmortal'', [[ProfessionalKiller Hasan]] enjoys competing and chellanges, and it has the added bonus of keeping him fit for his job. He lugs a Vegan-made wrestling robot with him on the trip and wrestles it daily, and when challenged to a duel, he chooses slingshots because it's more of a competition than just gunning each other down.

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': Joey/Jounouchi is much like this, especially later in the show. After losing the unofficial duel for third place against Kaiba in Battle City he is exuberant about the challenge Kaiba gave him, and when Kaiba derides this attitude in contempt, he asks, mystified, why the hell Kaiba even duels if not for fun.

** ComicBook/TheRiddler is a partial example; he lives for the mental challenge of his and Batman's battle of wits, but he also hates to lose. TheJoker is a better example, and is one of the few examples of this kind of character who is also actively cruel.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Captain Kenpachi is one of the strongest people around, but loves fighting so much that he deliberately weakens himself in order to have a more even match. He does this even against an opponent that is trying seriously to kill him. His techniques include an [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]] that drains his energy, bells that make it harder for him to do a sneak attack, and deliberately wielding his [[OneHandedZweihander two-handed sword with one hand]].
** Aizen, after absorbing the Hougyoku and achieving godlike power, takes his time setting about the end of the world in case someone comes along who can present a decent challenge. He intentionally destroys the Cleaner in the [[VoidBetweenTheWorlds Precipice World]], knowing that Ichigo can then use the Precipice World's YearInsideHourOutside effect for some last-minute training to unlock his strongest technique. In this case, Aizen probably wasn't looking for a real challenge, just someone to test his power on who wouldn't die instantly.
