** In the middle of a tense moment during which an [[AIIsACrapshoot unbelievably clever AI that would be losing its mind soon]] is giving directions and informative gifts to the protagonists to help them on their quest, one of them comments that the literal InfoDump (of multiple gigabytes) he got dropped into his implanted systems got past without so much as alerting any of his advanced firewalls. The AI's response is unnervingly nonchalant.
-->'''Roger:''' You-- Oh, wow. You dropped a ''ton'' on me. My firewalls didn't even notice you.

* In ''Literature/CodexAlera,'' [[MasterSwordsman Aldrick]] [[ArrogantKungFuGuy ex]] [[MeaningfulName Gladius]] spends the first book saying to everyone he fights with that they may be good, but the only person who ever defeated him was [[FamedInStory Araris Valerian,]] who's dead now. He [[BondOneLiner usually follows this up with a killing blow.]]
**Then subverted towards the end of the book, when he's about to kill [[TheHero Tavi]], and another character blocks the fatal blow. Guess who it is.

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.

badass. Alternatively, it may be that they're confident enough that [[BewareTheQuietOnes they don't need to boast or bluster]]-if you're stupid enough to mess with them, you ''will'' go down, and that's all there is to it.

* Omar Little from ''Series/TheWire'' is a stick up man, that is, an armed robber who [[KarmicThief targets only drug dealers and other criminals to steal from]]. While Omar has MomentOfAwesome after moment of awesome throughout the series, there's something special about the following exchange in Season 2, at the start of the trial of [[ProfessionalKiller a drugland assassin]] who tortured and murdered Omar's [[{{Gayngster}} boyfriend Brandon]].
-->'''Asst. State's Attorney Ilene Nathan:''' What exactly do you do for a living, Mr. Little?\\
'''Omar:''' I robs drug dealers.\\
'''Asst. State's Attorney Ilene Nathan:''' And exactly how long has that been your occupation, Mr. Little?\\
'''Omar:''' Oh, I don't know exactly, I venture to say about... eight or nine years.\\
'''Asst. State's Attorney Ilene Nathan:''' Mr. Little, how does a man rob drug dealers for 8 or 9 years and live to tell about it?\\
'''Omar:''' [smiles, shrugs, and sits back in his seat] [[https://youtu.be/oYj7q_by_2E?t=1m Day at a time, I suppose]].

'''Rakan''': Like I said... you sure? You really think that's gonna be enough? (Note: [[OneManArmy It isn't enough. Not by a long shot.]])
