* This is probably a driving point behind many of the characters in ''GashBell''. Gash himself somewhat fairly evaluates his own powers, but Kanchomé always brags about how strong he is although he almost never comes through. Most of the early antagonists that Gash faces are like this too, and end up being rudely awakened by Gash and Kiyomaro.

* Kanaria from ''RozenMaiden'' touts herself as the smartest of all of the Maidens. Too bad all her plans seem to fail miserably.

* Shiragami "Cool Beauty" Youko in ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' is a sexy, TallDarkAndHandsome expert in love. At least, if she tells you that, just quietly nod in agreement and don't tell her thatů she's not. Or find a roundabout way to say it.

* Downplayed first and then reconstructed with Gary Oak during the original series of ''Anime/Pokemon''. He was able collect 10 gym badges (by the time Ash collected 7), always two steps ahead of Ash, and generally has better knowledge with Pokemon than Ash did in the original Kanto arc. However, he gets owned by Mewtwo, [[BreakTheHaughty and also loses in the preliminary rounds at the Indigo League (which Ash passed that part of the tournament).]] [[CharacterDevelopment Gary took the lesson with him to Johto]], and [[TookALevelInKindness took a level in maturity]]. While he lost again in the Silver Conference (this time to Ash), he [[CrowningMomentofAwesome put up a much tougher fight]], and ended with a much better ranking in that tournament.

* Thomas Bester of the ''AceAttorneyInvestigations'' manga claims to be a great detective, but he is a CluelessDetective comparable to Gumshoe, and he has only worked on infidelity cases and found lost pets before being hired to protect Randolph Miller's prized painting, "Officers" from a group of [[GentlemanThief Gentleman Thieves]] [[spoiler:because he doesn't know enough about art to recognize the painting as a counterfeit]].

* The eponymous {{Nora}} is obsessed with defeating his leash-holder Kazuma via one of his "Ingenious Plans" (TM). Considering he's attempting this against the series' resident ManipulativeBastard... yeah.

* Takamura of ''HajimeNoIppo'' refers to himself as "ore-sama", which basically means "my great self" and generally thinks to be the greatest in every field when he's not (e.g. women and singing.) In terms of strength, he ''would'' be this, if it weren't for the fact that he ''really is'' as superhumanly strong as he believes himself to be.

** Same goes to Caribou, a Logia user who could turn into a energy-draining swamp. He made the mistake of gloating about being a Logia user to Pekoms, a Zoan, and then said Zoan (generally considered the weakest type unless you get a Mythical fruit) drops him in a single attack.

In fact, his purpose (moreso than Ceasar) was to introduce the fact that a Logia needs to be equally badass when their powers are unreliable to survive in the new world.
