Pride is one of the Seven Deadly Sins from Abrahamic Lore and is the most vile of the seven, as it is the source of the others. It is an inflated desire to be more important than others, attractive than others, refusing or failing to acknowledge the good work of others, and excessive love of one's self.

It is often synonymous with hubris, which is extreme pride. The demon that represents Pride is Lucifer, whose Pride led him to oppose God as he viewed himself above him. His defeat at God's hands and fall from grace gave rise to the phrase "Pride before a fall".

The corresponding virtue is humility. Pride can also be an emotion with good thoughts behind it, such as satisfaction with one's or others' choices. National Pride is born out a love for one's nation and its people, while racial pride is born out of love for one's fellow race.
