** Chopper wants to be a great doctor who can cure any disease. And the heroes that don't have 'the best (blank)' as their goal still have the ideal in mind by getting whatever it is they're trying to find.

** Hell, this could be the stated goal for ''almost every single Straw Hat:'' Nami wants to become the world's greatest cartographer by charting a map of the world, Chopper wants to be the world's greatest doctor who can cure any disease, Franky wants to become the world's greatest shipwright... Even the heroes that don't have 'the best (blank)' as their goal still have the ideal in mind by getting whatever it is they're trying to find.

* Looking beyond personal rivalries and angles, this is the ultimate goal of most pro wrestlers, claiming the top spot as the world champion (or maybe world {{tag team}}/parejas champions or [[PowerTrio tercias]] champions, etc). Which title that IS is another issue entirely, as there hasn't been a unified world title since the 60's, with the most prestigious non tag team titles of the new millennium being owned by Wrestling/{{WWE}} (The WWE World Heavyweight Title), Wrestling/{{N|ewJapanProWrestling}}JPW (International Wrestling Grand Prix World Heavyweight/Junior Heavyweight Title), Wrestling/{{A|llJapanProWrestling}}JPW (The Unified Triple Crown Championship), Wrestling/{{CMLL}} (World Welter Weight Title, which reigns above heavyweight thanks to Wrestling/ElSanto and or the Universal Championship, which is a tournament but close enough since the winner still gets an honorary belt), Wrestling/{{AAA}} (Mega Champion's Belt) and Wrestling/{{R|ingOfHonor}}OH (ROH World Title).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'': Josef wants to become the best swordsman in the world, as he believes that this is the only way he'll ever be worthy of wielding the Heart of War, world's most powerful sword. At the end of the second book [[spoiler:the blade gets fed up with this and tells him to just pick it up and use it already, as he's wasting a valuable resource.]]

** Orochimaru became a villain prior to the start of the series because of his desire to learn all jutsu in the world. The problem is that certain justsu are limited to members of specific bloodlines, making them impossible for him to learn under normal circumstances.

* ''WesternAnimation/ObanStarRacers'': The winner of the titular races [[spoiler:gets to be the Avatar]]. The thing is, everyone in the races believes that the prize is the granting of whatever they wish.

*** [[FridgeLogic Though you kind of wonder why Ash is still ineligible to battle against any of the Elite Four, or participate in the actual game's version of the Pokémon World Tournament, when he's consistently ranked up high in all five regions, and defeated all of the Frontier Brains.]] On a different note considering that the games themselves are a series of massive {{GuideDangIt}}s on parade, it's kind of amazing that Ash does eventually manage to keep being on top on things, more or less.
* In ''PokemonSpecial'', this is the goal of at least one protagonist per generation, in some way or another. Those that specifically want to be Pokemon Masters are Red and Green. Others that do the gym challenges and/or the battle frontiers are Sapphire, Emerald and Platinum. The ultimate Pokemon catcher would be Crystal, completing all the Pokedexes she is given minus the legendaries. The one who wants to be the best Coordinator is Ruby, who competes with Sapphire to see who can be a master first. Lastly, the concept is parodied with Diamond and Pearl, whose goal is ToBeAMaster of the BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine.

** Averted in [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Sun and Moon]], as you are canonically the first person to challenge Alola's Pokemon League, and become it's first ever champion (though you still need to battle [[spoiler:Kukui]] after defeating the Elite Four). From that point on, NPCs in the world will refer to you as the Champion. Challenging the Pokemon League subsequent times will [[spoiler:result in you having to defend your title from other challengers, including major story NPCs and trainers that only appear in this context]].

* The King of Shamans in ''ShamanKing''. Yoh wants to become Shaman King so that he can lead a life of luxury and relaxation. His arranged fiance also wants the same things. Oddly enough, they work HARD (Though Anna frequently has to bully Yoh to do so) for the ability to lie around all day.
