* In ''FanFic/TheApprenticeTheStudentAndTheCharlatan'', Nova Shine is a textbook case, coupled with a large side-helping of HeroicSelfDeprecation when he fails to live up. He's immensely self-critical of how he was able to match Twilight Sparkle's spells during their first assessment but not the ease at which she could cast them, punishes himself for yelling at Twilight after she pushed his buttons one too many times, exiles himself to her basement for a whole week after he failed to make peace with his parents (even though his only goal earlier that day had been to make peace with a completely different pony, which he ''did'' succeed at), and won't even talk to her during that time.

* Rarity from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''.
** Twilight Sparkle even more so. She has the version of this you find in RealLife in people who did very well in early schooling... [[TheBGrade and thus never got used to getting less-than-perfect scores]].

* Rarity from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''.
''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''
** Rarity, as a fashionista, is a bit of a Hollywood case. Though considering the clientele she keeps (a famous songwriter and dancer, a model, and several fashion moguls), her perfectionist tendencies tend to be rather justified.
** Twilight Sparkle even more so.so, with a heaping side-helping of SuperOCD. She has the version of this you find in RealLife in people who did very well in early schooling... [[TheBGrade and thus never got used to getting less-than-perfect scores]]. The mere thought of not having a friendship lesson prepared for Princess Celestia and being tardy causes a meltdown that results in her brainwashing half the town in an attempt to engineer a friendship problem.


Added DiffLines:

** We later see that Diamond Tiara exhibits the negative aspects of this trope, courtesy of the pressure put on her by her mother Spoiled Rich. The reason she acts like a bully is because of the pressure on her to be the best and her less-than-graceful handling of it when she isn't. The moment she turns around completely is when she lets go of being a WellDoneDaughterGirl in favor of actually making friends with her classmates and listening to the positive reinforcement from the CMC instead of the negative criticism from her mother.

* Asuka Langley from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', who uses perfectionism as a way of avoiding dealing with her cripplingly low self-esteem. Once she loses her status as the number one pilot, [[BreakTheHaughty bad things begin to happen to her sanity]].

* [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 Lord Shen]] works for perfection in many aspects throughout ''FanFic/TheVow'', like his fighting style and appearance, the gifts and [[TrainingFromHell training for self-defense]] he gives [[LoveInterest Lianne]], his coming wedding and his attempts to be theatrical.

* In ''Literature/TerraIgnota'', the Utopians are an entire quasi-nation of perfectionists due to attracting this particular type of members. They always take the time to do everything perfectly, no matter how small an error or how long it takes. For example, the worldwide transit system is controlled by the Humanist Hive, and is the safest, fastest, and most efficient transit system in human history. There was an accident which resulted in a number of Utopians (and others) dying. Everyone else accepted it as an unfortunate statistical error, but the Utopians removed themselves from the Humanist system and created their own transit system. It is slower and smaller, but it has never caused even one death.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': A defining feature of Tywin Lannister. Tywin is obsessed with House Lannister's reputation, never misses an opportunity to point out his children's flaws and disrespects anyone that does not live up to his standards... which is everyone else but himself. On the other hand, his perfectionism is one of the major reasons he is aware of everything that goes on around him and what makes him a deadly strategist.

Compare and contrast SuperOCD (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.

* ''Art/{{David}}'' has long been praised as absolute perfection of human anatomy. Michelangelo worked for two years straight on ''David'', sleeping rarely and eating sparsely. There are hundreds of tiny details that you can see, from the raised veins on his hand from the grip on the stone to the small genitals, not only standard for the time and area, but also an example of pre-battle shrinkage.\\\
The only notable anatomy flaw is that of a missing muscle in the back. But it was necessary. A flaw in the block of marble prevented Michelangelo from carving it, as mentioned in a letter he released at the time of finishing. It's the same flaw (among others) that had the block of marble sitting in a plaza for 40 years before Michelangelo took a chance.
