* WebVideo/ConfusedMatthew is often perceived as this. He got considerable backlash for attacking Creator/RogerEbert and claiming he was either an idiot or a liar for recommending ''Film/MinorityReport''. And for attacking Creator/StanleyKubrick in his review of ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''.
** It isn't so much egotism, rather he is simply very opinionated, very opposed to common viewpoints on movies, has very high standards, and (most importantly) very LOUD!

* [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] the character is this, berating his fans for asking his opinions on comics. Of course, out-of-character, an "I love you guys" is very quickly added. Lewis himself admits to having an ego, but he makes sure to refine his skills in order to stay on AwesomeEgo territory.
** A recent arc even focused on his arrogance being the first step on the path to a FaceHeelTurn. Time will tell how long this lasts.

* Draco Malfoy in ''AVeryPotterMusical'' is this trope through AlternateCharacterInterpretation (although this particular trait is mainly through Flanderization of his original character and he's surprisingly more canon than DracoInLeatherPants). He's a bullying coward who believes the only thing keeping him from being the coolest kid in school is Harry and is constantly trying pose and failing ''spectacularly''. He does shape up and join the good guys later on in the show but he's still got the ego.

* Holly [[ItMakesSenseInContext the giant floating head]] from WebVideo/CaptainDisillusion. They literally think they control everything.

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic also has shades of this (again, the character is an ass but his actor is lovely), and his is of the "big ego but easily - [[BreakTheHaughty and often]] - shattered self-esteem" variety.

--> '''John''' (''reading out a letter''): Dear Dredge, I'm a big fan of the Nothing To Do With Anything Show, but feel that the main supporting actor, Greg Haiste, is somewhat underused. What do you propose do to about it? Yours hopefully, Greg Haiste. Well Greg, we've taken everything you've said on board - and completely dismissed it.

* Greg Haiste's character in Podcast/TheJohnDredgeNothingToDoWithAnythingShow, who feels he's clearly one of the greatest actors around. Unfortunately for him, nobody else shares that view…

* Jim Sterling, at least the character with the same name as him he plays in WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}}, ends every video with "Thank God for me." He regularly says things like "there you go, I have, once again single-handedly saved the video game industry." Although, it has to be noted that when standing on his podium next to the ComicBook/{{VForVendetta}}-style background much of what he says is firmly in SarcasmMode territory.
