* ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleRascals'' episode "The Zero Hero" has two examples. When Darla is on her date with Captain Muscles, he stops the bank robbers, but one of them acts GenreSavvy and deflates his costume. After Captain Muscles runs away, Alfalfa comes along dressed as Alpha-Man, but faints after Darla tells him that the bank robbers are not his disguised friends.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Samurai Jack}}'': Da Samurai shows up at a tavern and boasts of being a highly skilled samurai, bullying the other customers who are afraid of him, but he ends up MuggingTheMonster by provoking Jack, who reluctantly agrees to fight him outside. Jack already knows that his opponent is nothing but hot air: he cuts two sticks of bamboo and tells Da Samurai to take one, saying he's not worthy to face Jack's sword. The result is a CurbStompBattle in which Jack runs circles around his increasingly angry opponent, effortlessly thwarting all of his attacks while humiliating him with smarting blows; each time, Jack gives Da Samurai an aphorism about the self-defeating nature of arrogance, and eventually cracks through his suit of FakeMuscles to reveal him as a scrawny guy with a pot belly. Then an army of robot bounty hunters appears out of the woods. Da Samurai is incapacitated while trying to flee, and Jack saves them both by destroying every single one. In the immediate aftermath he apologizes to Jack, admitting he isn't hot stuff like he thought he was, and what Jack did was amazing. Just then he sees that the destroyed robots have reconstituted themselves into a giant monstrosity which is rearing up behind Jack, and pushes Jack away from its beam weapon while [[TakingTheBullet getting hit himself]]. After putting it down for good, Jack tells Da Samurai that he has taken the first step on the true path of the samurai, and the next moment he's calling Jack ''sensei'' and begging for more instruction.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Samurai Jack}}'': Da Samurai claims to be a highly skilled samurai, but he is actually an incompetent {{Comic Relief}} who doesn't know anything about being a samurai. [[FakeMuscles His muscles are fake]] and he is actually very skinny with a pot belly. He is very arrogant and obsessed with himself to the point where he would chicken out if he is faced with actual danger, as seen when he tried to run back to the tavern after he and Jack are cornered by an army of robot bounty hunters. He pulled a {{Heel Face Turn}} after Jack showed him how to be a real samurai.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'': Major Courage, a cowardly actor in "[[Recap/DuckTalesS1E4WhereNoDuckHasGoneBefore Where No Duck Has Gone Before]]". Courage, who doesn't know that the danger is real for most of the episode, walks around making hammy heroic declarations and challenging the aliens to fights. Then he attacks Buvolvan, gets smacked down, and realizes that this isn't an episode he's filming and promptly takes off in the only ship, leaving the boys and Launchpad behind.

* Slugslinger from ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' is a mild subversion in that he ''is'' the incredibly brave and talented gunman that he constantly claims to be, and a dutiful soldier who never backs down from a fight. Except it's all a lie; Slugslinger's confidence and ability are wholly reliant on his gun Caliburst, and when the ammo dries up, his true cowardice is revealed.

** And in "Operation P.O.O.L" which takes place in an {{Alternate Universe}}, Negative Numbuh 4 qualifies just as much. To all the kids, especially his own minions, he is seen as a fearmonging tyrant bullying everyone into doing his bidding. However, his {{Fatal Flaw}} is that, like everyone from the {{Mirror Universe}}, he is the opposite of his own real world counterpart and thus a {{Dirty Coward}} in contrast to Numbuh 4's braverly and boldness. This was revealed when he started shivering in fear to Numbuh 4 challenging him to a [[{{Lets Fight Like Gentlemen}} dual]] and even orders his minions to fire in an act of cowardice. It's also possible that he might secretly love Rainbow Monkeys since the real Numbuh 4 hates them.
