More Creator/SonnyChiba than Creator/BruceLee, the ArrogantKungFuGuy 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.

** 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.

* Paul keeps this attitude in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', taking great pride in his victories and crushing his opponents, and when he loses, he attributes it to either dumb luck or his Pokémon not being up to par.

* Kakarotto from ''HerosRealm''. Not only is he a total jerk who [[YouKilledMyFather killed Akira's father]], he's in the pay of [[EvilGenius Murzhor.]]

* Shadow from ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' views himself superior to everyone in battle. This is especially shown in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' and the ''VideoGame/SonicRivals'' games.
** It shows in the Pure Hero-Dark Path of his [[VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog self-titled game]] as well, where he ended up challenging Sonic as earned to being his rival, than boasted highly about his own strength after he defeated him, and even laughing about it.
** 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.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ForumOfThrones'' has several examples of this.
** Leonard Constantine started off as one. Developments in later chapters, especially his experiences in Oldtown, turn him into a far more humble person.
** Elias Tyrell is an incredibly gifted fighter and he makes sure that everyone knows about it. He at least tries to appear like a true knight and usually manages to fool others to fall for this trick, but upon closer examination, his arrogance and lack of discipline become obvious.
** Willfred Reyne is the eldest son and heir of the most powerful lord of the Kingdom of the Rock. Because of this, he has received the best training possible and has developed into a swordsman that is as skilled as he is arrogant.
** Rayden spends his entire lifetime in the story being smug and overly arrogant about his skills. We don't get to see much of it, though he is considered to be extremely dangerous by the master assassin Clayton, so there must be something about him.

* Tokita Ohma, the protagonist from ''Manga/KenganAshura'', is extremely arrogant and provokes all his opponents, although it isnít unprovoked as many of his opponents are of the same braggart clause, some many levels more demeaning than Ohma, he is more level headed to those supporting him also.

Added DiffLines:

* Wrestling/SamoaJoe as face or heel.
* 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."

** Jaime Lannister's prodigious swordsmanship makes him one of the most self-assured men in the Seven Kingdoms. The loss of his sword hand puts a dead stop to this.

** Jaime Lannister's prodigious swordsmanship ''and'' being a Lannister makes him one of the most self-assured men in the Seven Kingdoms. The His smugness starts to wear off in Season 3, slowly at first, what with getting his ass kicked by Brienne and the loss of his sword hand dramatically puts a dead stop to this.this. While he still tries to reassure his lord father that not being as good with his left hand doesn't matter as long as he's better than anyone else, an honest conversation with Tyrion shows that his self-confidence is gone.
