* In ''Literature/{{Edgedancer}}'', it's implied that this is how Nale feels about his acolytes. At one point, Lift overhears him giving a dressing-down to his acolytes, noting that he's managed to learn more about their target during a morning stroll than they did for the past week.

* This is actually a plot point in ''Series/TheFollowing'': Wannabe [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] Joe Carroll founds his cult of psycho killers to carry out his bidding. The problem is that ''it's a cult of psycho killers''. They're all crazy and murderous, and directing them toward any kind of focused productive activity is next to impossible. The original cult implodes before the end of the first season, and Joe's later attempts to rebuild keep running it into the same problem: AxCrazy people just don't play nice together.

** At least Dib still has some hope for humanity, his sister, [[CreepyChild Gaz]], on the other hand sees everyone around her, including Dib, as idiots. She knows Zim is an alien, but doesn't really care.

*In a heroic example, the four VERY MUCH feel this way in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. At one point John asks in frustration, “Are we absolutely the only ones usin' our brains round here?” And later, when they're meeting with the Circle leadership:
-->John, who had thought his observation perfectly reasonable and no insight of any great brilliance, was almost as astonished as the Circle people by their reaction to it. Remembering his conversation with George and Paul some nights ago, particularly his comment that no one seemed to be using their brains except them, he could only conclude that he was one hundred percent right and that ''every other person on C'hou was a fucking idiot. Including'' the gods. He quickly picked up his wine cup again and drank deeply so he wouldn't burst out laughing.
