* In ''Videogame/YuGiOhReshefOfDestruction'', the Neo Ghouls and Pegasus's lackeys are this. They're supremely confident that they're going to win, and incredibly surprised when they don't.

* Myron in VideoGame/Fallout2 is a teenage chemist who is responsible for creating the addictive drug Jet. While he is undoubtedly a genius he is absolutely useless in combat and is generally a pretty terrible person overall.

** Bann Vaughan is another example. In the City Elf origin, he abducts the female members of the elf marriage party. What follows is the PlayerCharacter going on a [[RoaringRampageofRevenge roaring rampage of revenge]] to save the girls. He's [[GenreSavvy genre savvy]] enough to realize the PlayerCharacter, covered head-to-toe in the blood of his household guards, may actually pose a threat to him, but he's [[TooDumbtoLive too stupid]] to just let the girls go. He's smug, entitled, sadistic and treats all [[FantasticRacism elfs with absolute disdain]]. He'll even be racist to an elf PlayerCharacter who [[spoiler: he's relying on to rescue him from Arl Howe's TortureCellar.]]

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'': Orvas Dren, the leader of the thuggish, brutal, [[DrugsAreBad drug-pushing]], [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil slave-trading]] [[TheSyndicate Cammona]] [[TheMafia Tong]]. He's arrogant, prideful, and extremely confident in his position, having two members of the [[ProudMerchantRace House Hlaalu]] council and the lead of the [[AdventureGuild Fighters' Guild]] in his pocket. He has no qualms with plotting to assassinate and overthrow his ReasonableAuthorityFigure brother, Duke Vedam Dren, and has been steering the Cammona Tong down even more morally repugnant paths, such as hiring bounty hunters to track down escaped slaves and using slaves as drug mules.

* ''Videogame/Persona5'' has Masayoshi Shido, a corrupt politician behind practically every bad thing in the game, including [[spoiler:the protagonist's probation]]. For all of his ambitions and belief that he's been chosen by divine right, it's clear that the only reasons he's able to amass his power/influence is due to [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections his connections]] and [[spoiler:having his son doing all of his dirty work.]]

** In the crossover series ''WarriorsOrochi'', Masamune becomes one. He also tends to be paired with Sima Yi, the Smug Snake of ''Videogame/DynastyWarriors'' as the two tend to share the same arrogant demeanor and the [[VerbalTic habit of referring to others as "Imbeciles"]].

* Prince Lacroix from ''[[VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines]]''. Arrogant, smug and power-hungry; Lacroix condescends to you and sends you on suicide missions at every opportunity. He wants you dead for political convenience, so every mission is a XanatosGambit - Further his aims or be out of his way. [[TheChessmaster He plots and schemes, playing key characters against each other to get what he wants]]. Whenever things don't go his way, he'll throw a childish temper tantrum.

* Rosencrantz from ''VagrantStory'' is a smug bastard all the way, who ''thinks'' he has the secret of Lea Monde all figured out...and then Ashley whips his ass, and hardly anyone seems to care. Rosencrantz has to yell yield, and [[TheStoic Ashley]] mocks him for it. Not only that, but the game's real MagnificentBastard gets a shot. After Rosencrantz [[spoiler: has ambushed Sydney and Ashley, Rosencrantz demands Sydney name him his heir. Sydney calls him a "worm", and Rosencrantz chops off Sydney's arm. Sydney, bleeding BlackBlood, stands up and ''[[YouCallThatAWound reattaches his arm]].'' He then demonstrates to Rosencrantz that not only is the man not immune to Sydney's magic like he thought (by making him think he was holding Sydney's severed hand), but Sydney had been manipulating him the entire time. And in the end, Sydney doesn't even kill Rosencrantz. He lets a giant six armed statue of Kali do it for him.]] Truly, in case you had forgotten the real {{Chessmaster}} and LargeHam in the story, Sydney does not fail to remind you that [[ChewingTheScenery he was eating the scenery first.]]

* Across the AgarestSenki games, we have the completely loathsome Summerill. He believes he is a total genius, and gloats about every foul act of evil he commits like its a priceless master stroke in his plans. Before fighting him, expect a good six to ten sentences from Summerill about how he's going to make you long for death, and nearly all of his plans are self-aggrandizing - see his plan for making himself the new supreme god, and how the first chance he got, he tried to murder the God he professes to serve. Not even defeat can shut this bastard up.

* [[BigBad The Guardian]] from the ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series, at least in ''Ultima 7: The Black Gate''. He constantly taunts, insults and annoys the Avatar in feeble attempts to scare you off, all the while you uncover his plots, undermine [[ChurchOfHappyology the Fellowship]], gather plot coupons and smash the prism generators. Even though he's fully aware of everything you do he never bother to alert the Fellowship to the fact that ''you are not their friend'', his own [[TheDragon Dragon]] Batlin keeps treating you like a clueless dupe right up until you try to interrogate him with the prism cube, and when you finally pull out your ace and foil his plan, he's downright ''shocked'' that you were able to stop him.

** ''Dual Destinies'': Florent L'Belle is an obnoxious jerk who takes every opportunity to laugh disdainfully at Apollo. But while his scheme ''is'' clever, it's also [[ComplexityAddiction ludicrously complicated]], to the point where [[spoiler: [[SpannerInTheWorks a bumbling kleptomaniac deciding to steal the treasure L'Belle is after for a lark]]]] ends up tearing it apart.
