** From the "Return to Sabaody" arc immediately after the TimeSkip, we have "Triple-Tongued" Demaro Black, who had the [[SarcasmMode bright idea]] to try and impersonate Luffy, along with his "Fake Straw Hat" gang. His bounty was 26 million, which means he was a nobody. For comparison, Luffy's first bounty was 30 million, which means the World Government considered Luffy to be a bigger threat that this guy while Luffy was still in East Blue.

* In their first appearance in ''Manga/FairyTail'', many members of Sabertooth fit this trope, especially Sting. Even though they've won the annual guild competition for several years now, they mainly did so because the strongest members of other guilds were either not participating or holding back. Sting mocks the members of Fairy Tail for being able to defeat a dragon, even though the dragon in question is [[TheDreaded Acnologia]], [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Black Dragon of the Apocalypse]]. Meanwhile, Orga from the same guild thinks he can take on [[TheAce Laxus and Jura]] [[TooDumbToLive at the same time]]. Both of them are put in their place by the end of the arc.

* In ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'', all you had to do was check the color of a student's blazer; if it was blue, he likely fit this Trope. With the exceptions of Ryu, Fubuki, Asuka, and ''usually'' Manjyome (he had a big ego, but could back it up), almost every Obelisk student was a snob and a serious MilesGloriosus. In fact, in the second season it was hinted that even if you scored ''perfect'' on the entrance exam, you couldn't start there unless you went to some fancy prep school first, implying that a lot of Obelisk students just had rich parents.

* Boss from ''Anime/MazingerZ'' and ''Anime/GreatMazinger'' thinks he is the smartest and biggest {{Badass}} ever, the best biker around and a real ladies man, and people would ''pay'' for the chance to attend his birthday party (not joke. In episode 20 He ''tried'' to have his classmates paying for tickets. And he was shocked when all girls ran away from him screaming). Everyone else knows he is the ButtMonkey. Hence, when TheHero Kouji showed up, showing he was a real {{Badass}}, and [[BadassBiker a better biker]] and [[TroubledButCute getting all girls -especially Sayaka- crazy over him right away]], Boss understandably was not happy, and he constantly tried to showing Kouji up with very little success. He went so far to build his own -goofy-looking- HumongousMecha using metal scraps and junk from a rubbish dump, and claimed it would replace Mazinger-Z itself. Tip: It did not.

* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'': [[TokenMotivationalNemesis Raynare]]. She fancies herself as a schemer who will earn her place beside the Fallen Angels' leader Azazel by stealing a valuable [[AmplifierArtifact Sacred Gear]]. She's actually a StupidEvil bully and low-level scout with next to no command authority, pases over an ''insanely'' more valuable target that she'd been directly ordered to keep an eye on, and only wins a fight because the person she was picking on [[HowDoIShootWeb didn't understand the nature of his own abilities]]. Not only does she die in a shameful display as a DirtyCoward, but Rias and her peerage are never held responsible for it. [[spoiler:In fact it's hinted Azazel would have killed her himself for her actions if he hadn't been beaten to it.]]

* Chitose Karasuma of ''LightNovel/GirlishNumber'' has only been a voice actor for a year, and done just minor roles in that period. She complains about it and she likes to think she deserves much better.

* ''Manga/DeathNote'': While not a small name per se, [[VillainProtagonist Light Yagami]] immediately believes that he's the only one worthy of purging the world of evil and [[AGodAmI becoming god of the new world]] simply because he's the BigManOnCampus at his high school.

* Chaka in ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' thinks he's a real badass for having "capped" ten people. While it makes ''some'' sense given that Japan has insanely strict gun control laws, he's talking to Revy who usually kills that many in a given episode.

* While he's a skilled football player, Natsuhiko Taki from ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'' isn't nearly as smart or as cool as he makes himself out to be.

* 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.
