** Teresa was even nicknamed for this trope. She was constantly displaying a patronizing smile. Even the number 1 of the time while Teresa was only a recent warrior could not bare this smile. Aside from her, several number 1 tend to have this kind of attitude, examples include Hysteria, Roxanne, Isley, Rosemary, Priscilla (post-awakening).

** In ''VideoGame/SonicForces'', [[spoiler:this comes to bite him [[UnwillingInstigatorOfDoom and the rest of the world.]] His physical and verbal beatdown of a pre-empowerment [[AxCrazy Infinite]] inflamed the latter's InferioritySuperiorityComplex and [[CreateYourOwnVillain sent him over the edge into sociopathic villainy.]]]]

* Gato and Shen Woo from the ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' series both fit this to a T, despite not resembling one another much in personality. Gato, in particular, is probably ''the'' example, from the way he speaks to the way he dresses to the brutal way he fights.

More Creator/SonnyChiba than Creator/BruceLee, the Arrogant [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Kung-Fu]]/[[ItIsPronouncedTroPay Gongfu]] Guy is a loner. He's simply too mean to have friends. Unparalleled in combat, he has TheGift. [[SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining His interpersonal skills are nonexistent]], and his temper is best described as "[[HotBlooded volcanic]]." Living in a [[HairTriggerTemper constant state of aggravation]], his only joy comes from {{Trash Talk}}ing and putting "[[YouFool foolish]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment fools]]" in their place (and sometimes even that's a stretch). He may not actually [[BloodKnight enjoy fighting]], or even ''want'' to if he can help it, but [[InHarmsWay it's all he knows]], possibly through being trained by a ThugDojo. Their view of the world means they can never understand the concept of the WorthyOpponent, as they are either better than you or you are the roadblock standing in the way of greatness.

greatness (forcing them to recognize someone can be a WorthyOpponent is often where they will [[BreakTheHaughty falter]] and reconsider their demeanor towards others).

Tends to have a {{foil}} in a MartialPacifist, the inverse of this {{trope}}. See also SmugSuper, JerkJock. Contrast/See also CavalierCompetitor and InsufferableGenius. Also an inversion of MilesGloriosus, who has the social skills to maintain a facade but zero bravery or combat skill to back it up.

Tends to have a {{foil}} in a MartialPacifist, the inverse of this {{trope}}. The StockShonenRival is often saddled with this characterization, as their contrast to the StockShonenHero archetype usually mandates some sense of discrimination against those not born with great potential. See also SmugSuper, JerkJock. Contrast/See also CavalierCompetitor and InsufferableGenius. Also an inversion of MilesGloriosus, who has the social skills to maintain a facade but zero bravery or combat skill to back it up.

* Wrestling/RomanReigns: He loved the idea that he could be (and, to this point, is) the one to retire Undertaker, and refused to listen to Shawn Michaels' advice about the match prior to WrestleMania. On an episode of Raw, he told Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman, as plainly as he could, that he's done much more in WWE than they have. And, at least once, he's simply told the fans "I can't be beaten one-on-one in a fair fight whether you like it or not."

* Jann Lee from the ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' series is this; he fought to overcome the deaths of his parents and eventually became so skilled that he became a bouncer at a fancy nightclub. He's so proud of his self taught skills that he comes across as arrogant to others, but he's quite chill when not fighting, as shown in a few cutscenes.

** At first, [[BadAssGrandpa Whitebeard]] appeared to be like this, ripping up Shanks' letter and demanding he come in person to deliver his message. However, [[spoiler: we see that Whitebeard may be proud but not smug. He is fully aware of his decreasing health and when one of his comrades stabbed him, rather than kill the guy outright, he calmly embraced the traitor, calling him his son and forgiving him. He had charged into battle, expecting to die, in order to save Ace]]. If anything, he is more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

* Bushido Brown from ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' is this. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] when he beats the living ''crap'' out of Huey in their fight, but not so much when [[spoiler:he gets [[OffWithHisHead beheaded]] by the [[BadassGrandpa Hateocracy]]]].

** The reason Master Roshi adopts the Jackie Chun alias is to make sure his students do not adopt this trope.
