Compare and contrast {{Super OCD}} (even if in RealLife perfectionism is more likely to be a trait of OCPD), as well as the UltimateLifeForm, who ''is'' "perfect". Also compare the BrokenAce, who often overlaps with this character.

* In the PilotEpisode for the Creator/{{Amazon}} series ''The Interestings'', the members of the title group are having a hypothetical discussion about living people who could be {{God}} in disguise. When Ash Wolf (another member of the group) is brought up as a candidate, the suggestion is immediately shot down because Ash fits this trope. "She would never have let a mistake like [[UsefulNotes/RichardNixon Dick Nixon]] slide."

* The Jennerit from ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' in general are this. Anything they deem imperfect must be fixed or destroyed. If the Jennerit need to manipulate the laws of the universe in the process, so be it.

** Klavier Gavin is ''not'' a perfectionist in court, where he's one of the few prosecutors who aren't at all {{amoral|attorney}}. When it comes to his career as a rock star, on the other hand, he won't tolerate even the slightest error in his band's performances.

* Manfred von Karma from ''Franchise/AceAttorney'', who maintained a perfect win record for over 40 years through perfectly coached witnesses and perfectly prepared evidence. When defense attorney Gregory Edgeworth manages to land a penalty on him, von Karma enacts a {{revenge}} that ''defines'' DisproportionateRetribution. (Unfortunately, his perfectionism has left him with the no ability to [[XanatosSpeedChess think on the fly]] nor to cope with a situation not perfectly under his control, leading to his downfall).
** Manfred's daughter, Franziska, is also a perfectionist because she believes she has to uphold the family name. In a late, unguarded conversation with her brother, she admits that she's neither perfect nor a genius but she ''had'' to be.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'': Lord "All I want is total perfection" Business, to the point where he doesn't believe in failure. This normally results in him exacting his murderous wrath on anyone when an imperfection turns up. He has also created a PoliceState where everyone has to follow the instructions, otherwise they will be [[SecretPolice put to sleep]], connected with his hatred of Master Builders who are a lot more chaotic and individualistic than his system is. [[spoiler: Mostly because he is a representation of Finn's father in real life, who likes order and control and doesn't want anyone messing with his LEGO sets]].

* Gaichû in ''VideoGame/ShadowrunReturns: Hong Kong'' is a mild example, mentioning that his role in his former team was to be the one to hone the team to perfection in the minutiae and never being satisfied, thus keeping them constantly drilling. This meant that, when he was exposed to TheVirus and became a [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier ghoul]], he became affixed on mastering his new form as if it was any other kind of handicap.
