* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', most skaven seem to have this as their [[PlanetOfHats Hat]], with the ones at the top usually being full fledged {{Magnificent Bastard}}s.
** The same can be said about the Dark Eldar in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', as well as a majority of Imperial Governers and Chaos Sorcerers.
** Among the Skaven, Grey Seer Thanquol from the ''Gotrek and Felix'' novels takes the cake and eats it. He appears as a would-be BigBad in what seems like half the books, always having his schemes foiled by the titular pair of heroes. [[spoiler:At one point he finally gets them in his claws, only to realise they ''have no idea who he is''. Cue the VillainousBSOD.]]
* Duke Rowan Darkwood from ''{{Planescape}}'' thinks that he is fated to conquer Sigil. He is wrong.
* Ertai from ''MagicTheGathering''.
* The Clans in ''BattleTech'' are total smugs to everyone, they look down on the Inner Sphere as barbarians, and consider themselves superior to them. Within Clan society [[DesignerBabies Trueborns]] sneer at natural born Freeborns viewing them as inferior, and consider older warriors as CannonFodder.
