His response? It may be acted, or spoken, or merely thought, but it's summoned up in a Stock Phrase: "ThinkNothingOfIt" or "Don't Mention It".

* Son Goku from ÄÄManga/DragonBall'' did a version of this trope. After teleporting to New Namek to find a new God for Earth, the Namekians recognized him as the Super Saiyajin that defeated Freeza and saved their race. Goku's response was more-or-less, 'don't thank me, your planet still blew up'.

* ''GurrenLagann'', a series all about shouting ScrewDestiny, gave us that curveball at the end, where [[spoiler: Simon]] quietly walked out of the spotlight and off into a modest life away from the action. Of course, this was after a WhamEpisode that revealed what would happen [[spoiler: to the universe]] if he ''kept'' [[SerialEscalation pushing the limits of evolution]]...

The GloryHound, even more nastily, is incapable of this regardless of what has been suffered by others to win the victory, until he is certain he has secured the glory for himself, whereupon he may try false modesty.
