More Creator/SonnyChiba than 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.

** Ezio from ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' starts off as this, but gets better quickly. The first game only shows a few weeks of Altaïr's life, whereas the second follows Ezio from the age of 17 to 40, showing us his career highlights. It reaches the point where [[spoiler:Ezio refuses to kill Rodrigo Borgia, the man responsible for the murder of his brothers and father, because it won't bring them back.]]

A decision which gets most of household killed by the vengeful Rodrigo in the beginning of the sequel, admittedly.]]

* Even among New Japan Pro Wrestling, Katsuyori Shibata's persona plays on this enough to stand out. Only in this case, he is a "shooter" who looks down on professional wrestlers. Now add in NoSell and suddenly we have a problem.

* ''MutekiKanbanMusume'': The protagonist, TheRival and the UnknownRival fit in this trope. Being a deconstruction of the FightingSeries, all three are also {{Man Child}}ren.

* Tek Jansen in ''Webcomic/FakeNewsRumble'' starts out this way, but [[TookALevelInKindness takes a level in kindness]] later.

** Cell. What makes him stand out among the rest, however, is that he is a very skilled fighter who [[UnskilledButStrong doesn't have the shortcomings of the Saiyans and Frieza]]. He can sense energies like the heroes, suppress his power down to almost nonexistent, can think on his feet in the heat of battle, and does not rely on pure brute strength to get ahead. He shows more battle experience and understanding of fighting than Trunks and Gohan and actually rivals Goku and Piccolo in fighting instricts. This is mostly thanks to his genetics which gives him the power and experience of the universe's greatest fighters.

* The ''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}'' villain Mr. X joined Norman Osborn's incarnation of the {{Thunderbolts}} because just killing all comers in underground fighting matches in Madripoor wasn't challenging enough anymore. He was enthusiastic about invading Asgard because he wanted to prove he could kill a god with his bare hands. [[spoiler:He could, and he did.]]

* MarvelComics' Moving Shadow is, at the very least, equal in skill to his brother, Shang-Chi, the Master of Kung Fu. Unlike his brother, however, he never learned the path of peace, and is controlled by his anger. He's also straight up evil, and wants to kill (and, more importantly, defeat) his brother more than anything.
