* A rare good guy example (and VERY MUCH unambiguously a good guy) is Johnny Cage from ''Franchise/MortalKombat''. Yeah, he's full of himself, cocky and arrogant, but he really is THAT good a fighter, and he's possibly the game's most moral, selfless hero. Other heroes in the franchise fight for good out of duty or because it's their job, but Cage does it because it's right.

This extends to fawning over his double in a MirrorMatch. But he's full a master martial artist, the [[TheHeart moral center]] of himself, cocky the heroic Kombatants and arrogant, but he really is THAT good a fighter, and he's possibly the game's most moral, selfless hero.

** Another true heroic example is Virion from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''. However, he might be a partial subversion--it sounds like everything he says is bragging, but any boasts he makes on objective topics, like tactical skill or running errands, are actually ''just him stating facts.''

** Duke Oliver of Tanas from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemPathOfRadiance'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn'' believes himself to be the most beautiful man ever despite an overweight {{Gonk}} in reality, to the point of seeing himself as an enemy to all ugly people because of his belief that they sinfully look upon him with envy. However, he will fight on the behalf of anyone else who meets his high standards, simply because he believes that anything beautiful is worth protecting; [[spoiler:this is actually how you can recruit him to your side in ''Radiant Dawn'']].

* Duke Tanas Oliver from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem Path of Radiance]]'' is the most beautiful man ever and an enemy to all ugly people because they sinfully look upon him with envy. He will fight on the behalf of anyone else who meets his high standards though. Not in ways they often like but always for their own good since only he really understands beauty and knows how to defend it.

* Count Dooku from the ''Main/StarWars'' series has a lot of characteristics of this trope: he's a FauxAffablyEvil upper-class gentleman who is a MasterSwordsman and is also rather condescending to anyone who tries to fight him. To his credit, he is a very skilled duelist, although this backfires on him a couple of times - notably, thinking he was so awesome he could go up against [[OldMaster Yoda]] and win, or that he could troll [[TheChosenOne Anakin Skywalker]] into a rage and think that could end any way except badly.

* Meanwhile, there's Slaanesh's favorite champion in vanilla ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', Prince Sigvald the Magnificent. He wears golden armour and carries a stylish rapier rather than the customary giant spiky axe of Chaos. All his warriors carry mirrored shields so that he can admire himself at his leisure, he suffers from the 'stupidity' rule because of his tendency to sit there and preen in the middle of the battlefield...and Sigmar help you if you think that means he can't slice you up at his leisure.

* [[UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars Joachim Murat]] was noted as a dandy and was also possibly homosexual, also known for his extravagant clothes and his FamousLastWords, directed to the firing squad at his execution: "Soldiers! Do your duty! Straight to the heart ({{beat}}) [[CrowningMomentOfFunny but spare the face]]. Fire!" He was also a pretty {{Badass}} cavalry commander.

** While Draven is the best example, this trope could cover many other League champions as well. [[LongHairedPrettyBoy Taric]] regularly talks about how beautiful he is and strikes poses as if for a photoshoot for one of his taunts. Most of [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Aurelion Sol's]] quotes are about how much better he is than everyone else, though in his case [[SmugSuper it's justified]].
