* Jaume of ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' has shades of this. He's an excellent cavalry commander ''and he knows it'', he's a ChickMagnet ''and he knows it'', and he choses his [[EliteArmy Companions]] based on appearance as much as skill.

-->'''Ghirahim:''' ''Lovely, aren't they? You'll find the supple skin of my arms tougher than any armor. Doesn't their shape just leave you...breathless? Behold! Such beauty! Such a pure form! Such an exquisite physique! Such stunning features! Yes, I've pretty much got it all. Though there is one teensy, tiny thing I lack...Namely, mercy.''

* Another example who's in the side of good is Subaki from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', who mixes it with ThePerfectionist [[spoiler: and a bit of StepfordSmiler.]]. He openly admits it when asked, even.
-->'''Hinata:''' Huh?! How can you be in love with yourself? You're the most vain person that I've ever met. How can you be so narcissistic?
-->'''Subaki:''' It's simple. Appearances are important. Perfecting one's outward image projects confidence and inner beauty. And people will always prefer someone clean and neat over a nasty slob.

* In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', Gilgamesh is a king of this trope (amongst the many other things he is king of) and hits practically every part of it spot-on. In the Unlimited Blade Works route, he passes over a perfect opportunity to kill all the main characters in one fell swoop [[spoiler:because part of the house they were fighting in was on fire, and ''it was getting soot on his clothing''.]]\\
\\
His earlier appearance in ''LightNovel/FateZero'' sees him [[spoiler:abandon several of his unique one-of-a-kind super weapons from his HyperspaceArsenal. They had been used to attack an ugly EldritchAbomination and had gotten muddy and slimy as a result.]]

** Subverted by the historical Guan Yu. While he was every bit as arrogant, he was also horrendously incompetent. As an administrator in Jing, he was so loathsome that many of his subordinates betrayed him the moment the Wu army showed up and almost all his military accomplishments are fictional. The one that isn't, defeating Yu Jin & Pang De in Jing was due to flash flooding destroying their position. He then promptly failed to beseige a flooded city which had very few defenders with an army of about 50,000 & was forced to retreat by Xu Huang leading a tiny army mostly consisting of conscripts.
