It may ''look'' like someone acting dismissive of their deeds, but the boaster is actually very proud of them. They are just being dismissive to mess with someone's head, or to seem more {{Badass}}.

--->'''Torg:''' Chaz, what happens to spirits when you "kill" them?\\
'''Chaz:''' They have no idea.
** When fighting lesser demons, Torg pulls out Chaz, who is already glowing.
