* A good guy example is Johnny Cage from ''Franchise/MortalKombat''. He's an action movie star with a vain streak a mile wide. This extends to fawning over his double in a MirrorMatch. But he's a master martial artist, the [[TheHeart moral center]] of the heroic Kombatants and a [[GoodParents loving father]] to his daughter Cassie.

* Many Toreador vampires in the Old ''WorldOfDarkness'' subscribe to this trope. Yes, they're artists and often dilettantes. They also have access to [[SuperSpeed Celerity]].

* Eikichi from ''VideoGame/Persona2InnocentSin'' is described by the game as a narcissist in his introductory blurb, and with good reason. He effectively runs Kusagayama High School as its feared and respected "Death Boss", all while wearing full make-up, nail polish, and a truckload of jewellery. Since he's a skilled Persona-user, he has more than enough power to back up his boasting.

* Doctor Doom. The initial accident that "ruined" his face (and that he blames on Reed Richards, fueling his lifelong obsession with proving his superiority to same) has been shown to have left a small scar on one cheek. He later put a metal mask on before it had fully cooled, which left him with full-face burn scars. Having any flaw in his perfection was the same as utter ruin to the narcissistic Victor von Doom.

* Hiromi Kisiragi of ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' is a cornerback who believes that only strength is beautiful; this factors into his exceptionally brutal play style. He's still far more sympathetic than most the examples of this trope, not least because his narcissism is rooted in his own self-loathing and past as a bully magnet; he's now out to prove to everyone that he's not a pushover anymore. And oh yeah, that he's pretty. He's more of a wannabe-Fighting Narcissist than a full on example.

* A rare good guy example (and VERY MUCH unambiguously a good guy) is Johnny Cage from ''Franchise/MortalKombat''. Yeah, he's full of himself, cocky and arrogant, but he really is THAT good a fighter, and he's possibly the game's most moral, selfless hero. Other heroes in the franchise fight for good out of duty or because it's their job, but Cage does it because it's right.

** Another true heroic example is Virion from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''. However, he might be a partial subversion--it sounds like everything he says is bragging, but any boasts he makes on objective topics, like tactical skill or running errands, are actually ''just him stating facts.''
