** [[ThirdPersonPerson The Great and Powerful Trixie]], who boasts of being capable of doing everything better than everyone.

to:

** [[ThirdPersonPerson The Great and Powerful Trixie]], who boasts of being capable of doing everything better than everyone. She's an odd case in that she clearly ''does'' have a lot of fans (or can at least draw a crowd), but she ''still'' manages to be this trope because her ego is just that big.


Added DiffLines:

** Done as part of Rainbow Dash's character development. In season 1 she was this trope to it's fullest, but as the show's gone on she's not only [[TookALevelInKindness Taken A Level In Kindness]] and [[BreakTheHaughty humility]] but also done quite a few acts of heroism to make a name for herself. As of Season 7 The Wonderbolts claimed to have been eagerly waiting for her to join for quite a while, and Dash (for the most part) is more humble: you could call her a Big Name Moderately-High Ego now.

** Season 5 shows that he ultimately gave up on his samurai career and now runs the BadGuyBar where he and Jack crossed paths. He still loves to brag about the experience and thinks the soul-changing encounter is more impressive than the various injuries and mutilations passing bounty hunters had received from Jack.

** Number 2. Downplayed in that he is very competent, most of the time, but tends to overestimate even that. More than anything though, he thinks he's funnier than he actually is.
** Numbah 4 in a MirrorUniverse episode, when it's revealed that the BigBad is [[EvilTwin alternate version of himself.]]. Numbah 4 realizes that if his counterpart is a hypercompetent villain, then he must also be a DirtyCoward.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Kent Brockman is an intentional copy of Ted Baxter. In the episode where Marge stars in ''"AStreetCarNamedDesire"'' musical, the director, while competent, sees himself as this supreme director even though the only play he ever mentions directing was a school play. He prides himself on it though, by carrying the review around and quoting it.

** Dermott Fictel, Hank Venture's teen-aged friend, seems incapable of opening his mouth without uttering a conveniently unconfirmable boast. He teaches ninjutsu (actually wears padding and takes hits in a self-defense class), can hot wire a car (except Hank had the keys), can fly a plane (except the Ventures' jet is the wrong class for his license), and is also known as "The Wolf" and/or "Psycho" (to the guys in his old neighborhood who supposedly fought a gang war over the choice). He is also a KnowNothingKnowItAll, claiming that the Retsyn from Certs mints can be used to make napalm, and a BoisterousWeakling, since the only time we see him actually fight he loses to the show's most notorious wimp.

** Brian Griffin spent years working on a novel entitled ''Faster Than The Speed of Love'' which turned out be a complete rip-off of the ''Film/IronEagle'' film series, even though Brian claimed he never saw any of them. Everyone who had heard of the book's plot mercilessly taunted Brian about it being a rip-off but he refused to acknowledge it. When the book did get published yet did not sell a single copy after being critically lambasted, the next day Brian read a rave review for a celebrity self-help book and thought self-help books were the reason the novel sold so terribly. He then decided to write a similar book out of spite; the book became popular and Brian slowly began raving "I have created a best selling PHENOMENON" until he was taken down on ''RealTimeWithBillMaher''. Brian is also egotistical when it comes to women. Brian always tries to act intelligent and suave to impress women so that he can easily have sex with them, but whenever they break up, Brian tends to blame the women he dates as the reason they broke up instead of admitting that his negative behavior was his own fault. One episode has Brian being confronted by every single woman he ever dated and they all point out how flawed he is, only for Brian to retort with flaws he sees in every woman he dated, saying [[NeverMyFault it's their fault their relationships with him went sour]].
