Many characters like to boast about their achievements, but only a few can gasconade in style, rattling off a [[TryToFitThatOnABusinessCard string]] of [[TheMagnificent titles]] and battle honours that impresses allies and intimidates enemies in a way which makes them sound mythic, [[SmallNameBigEgo not conceited]].

* Hero to Villain or vice versa -- ThrowingDownTheGauntlet. If a hero does this routinely, it's InTheNameOfTheMoon or a BadassCreed. A particularly arrogant Villain might make a Badass Boast part of their BreakingSpeech or their [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech "Reason the Hero Sucks" Speech]].
* Hero to mooks or Villain to [[RedShirt redshirts]] -- straightforward psychological warfare.

See also PreAsskickingOneLiner, IHaveManyNames, IAmTheNoun (which frequently is a component of these), and WorldOfCardboardSpeech. If your boast is really your oft repeated credo that explains who you are to yourself, then it is your BadassCreed. If the things you're boasting about are things that happened on-screen earlier in the story, the trope is RememberWhenYouBlewUpASun. A BadassBoast often happens either during or immediately before a SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome. May conclude with the observation that [[WhoWillBellTheCat some one person has to be the one to attack them first.]]
