* Gibbs of ''WesternAnimation/TitanMaximum'', despite being both DangerouslyGenreSavvy and the OnlySaneMan is this due to his incredibly smug nature and the fact that his victories are invalidated by the fact that his opposition is a team of incompetent jackasses, thus mostly succeeding more out of their own failures than anything else.

* Lavor, TheDragon to [[BigBad Magmion]], from ''GormitiTheLordsOfNatureReturn''. Even his ImageSong denounces him as a vain, overconfident scoundrel. He's also quite a [[DirtyCoward coward]], and happily [[WeHaveReserves throws his men into battle with the heroes]] to get himself away from trouble and gauge his opponents' strength.

** Kaa from Disney's ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' ''is'' a Smug Snake. This is the complete opposite of his personality in Creator/RudyardKipling's original book, where he was more of an OldMaster who has the respect (and fear) of the Jungle.
** The Smug Snake in the book: ''Shere Khan''.

* From ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', [[TheStarscream Starscream]] in [[TransformersArmada almost]] [[ComicBook/TransformersShatteredGlass all of]] [[TransformersTranstech his incarnations]]. In ''[[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers G1]]'' he fancied himself the smartest, most cunning and handsomest Decepticon. When he wasn't complaining to Megatron about how he would've defeated the Autobots eons ago, he was openly plotting ways to top the slag-maker. All of his schemes failed miserably with at least one or two nearly destroying the earth. He was far more interested in becoming the Decepticon leader than leading them effectively in the rare moments when Megatron was out of the way. His ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' incarnation behaves similarly in this regard, but is [[AdaptationalBadass physically dangerous enough to back himself up]], whilst his ''[[Film/{{Transformers}} Movieverse]]'' and ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' incarnations are tired of Megatron's leadership and genuinely believe they would make better leaders, but are unable to oppose him directly.
** Thrust from ''TransformersArmada'' practically '''is''' this trope.

** The BigBad of Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire, [[spoiler: Commander Lyle Tiberius Rourke]] tries to pass himself off as a MagnificentBastard, having a reputation for being crazy prepared for everything, and being patronizingly nonchalant about killing off all the Atlantians for triple the fortune, even though said fortune is substantial enough, making the entire conflict extremely unnecessary. He grossly overestimates his competence, caused his underlings to turn against him due to his callous cruelty, and severely underestimated all of his enemies. He ends up trying to kill his loyal Dragon with very little reason, which effectively ruins his own plans. Instead of gaining any sort of monetary gain, he ends up with a gruesome death.
