Selfishness Tropes

Tropes that deal with selfish and self-centered people.

Name Space:
Page Type:
"To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others."
-- Albert Camus

Here are tropes dealing with characters who don't care about anybody but themselves. They want everything in the world to themselves. They pretty much do anything for themselves. Everything is centered around themselves. This is one of the main reasons why Humans Are the Real Monsters.

Compare Ego Tropes and Obsession Tropes. Their favorite index is Money Tropes. See also Apathy Index where they just don't care.

    I like the idea, although am I the only one who's annoyed by indexes named "This Index Is ____"? It would be easier to find in the list of indexes if it was called Selfishness Tropes, because the lists are alphabetical. Is it just me?

    Now that you said it, you're right. I'm changing the name.

    Smug Snake: So into themselves they end up failing.

    Pride: Of course.

    Too Clever By Half: Thinks they're better than they really are.

    Wangst: If they're so wrapped up in their own sadness that they ignore other people's problems.

    Small Name Big Ego: Thinks they're the best, but they aren't.
