    A 2012 popular book on power-hungry narcissists suggests that narcissists typically display most, and sometimes all, of the following traits:[6]


    An obvious self-focus in interpersonal exchanges
    Problems in sustaining satisfying relationships
    A lack of psychological awareness (see insight in psychology and psychiatry, egosyntonic)
    Difficulty with empathy
    Problems distinguishing the self from others (see narcissism and boundaries)
    Hypersensitivity to any insults or imagined insults (see criticism and narcissists, narcissistic rage and narcissistic injury)
    Vulnerability to shame rather than guilt
    Haughty body language
    Flattery towards people who admire and affirm them (narcissistic supply)
    Detesting those who do not admire them (narcissistic abuse)
    Using other people without considering the cost of doing so
    Pretending to be more important than they really are
    Bragging (subtly but persistently) and exaggerating their achievements
    Claiming to be an "expert" at many things
    Inability to view the world from the perspective of other people
    Denial of remorse and gratitude

    The gang from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is narcissistic, but Glenn Howerton's character Dennis Reynolds displays the most extreme narcissistic traits with more sociopathic tendencies.


    Jay Gatsby, the titular character of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel The Great Gatsby, "an archetype of self-made American men seeking to join high society," has been described as a "pathological narcissist" for whom the "ego-ideal" has become "inflated and destructive" and whose "grandiose lies, poor sense of reality, sense of entitlement, and exploitive treatment of others" conspire toward his own demise.


    In the film To Die For, Nicole Kidman's character wants to appear on television at all costs, even if this involves murdering her husband. A psychiatric assessment of her character noted that she "was seen as a prototypical narcissistic person by the raters: on average, she satisfied 8 of 9 criteria for narcissistic personality disorder... had she been evaluated for personality disorders, she would receive a diagnosis of narcissistic personality disorder."


    Johnny Bravo, from the show of the same name, has narcissistic behaviors toward himself and of women he sees around him.


    The Riddler from Batman has narcissistic belief that he is the smartest person in the world.


    Niklaus Mikaelson from The Vampire Diaries, having be a bastard to his family, has developed into a narcissistic personality after having his emotions heightened as a Vampire.


    Brian Griffin in later seasons turned narcissistic after Family Guy was uncancelled, And now some people believe him as human being rather than actually dog, while Griffin family are this in likely less.
