* Played for laughs by UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy when he was asked how he became a war hero: "It was absolutely involuntary. They sank my boat."

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. And he rather looks for it in his subordinates. The SuperTrope GlorySeeker often finds it hard to choke out when the praise is not merited -- and never does when it is.

* An "ongoing" version intersecting with CowardlyLion appears in the novel ''[[XWingSeries Wraith Squadron]]''. While very good in simulations, and when no one's depending on him, in "real action" Kell Tainer starts feeling sick and even gets shaky, but manages to power through it. He's very uncomfortable with citations for bravery, as he feels he hasn't earned it, and even secretly despises an award roughly on par with the Medal of Honor.

* In SandyMitchell's ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' novels, Cain ('''HERO OF THE IMPERIUM!''') downplays his reputation for the lustre of modesty that it adds to it -- although sometimes he [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation seems genuinely embarrassed by the inaccuracy]]. He definitely minds that he gets all the credit, as opposed to some going to his faithful and ''extremely'' handy aide, Jurgen, who has been vital to Cain's success (or just survival) on many an occasion. And Vail has observed that he underestimates the effect he can have on morale -- or [[LosingTheTeamSpirit that his death would have]].

* After the [[UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict Six-Day War]] of 1967, a popular song in Israel told the story of the costly [=IDF=] attack on Ammunition Hill in northern Jerusalem (a heavily fortified Jordanian Legion outpost). The song is interspersed with two spoken bits, wherein two soldiers tell the story of their own participation (based on the experiences of two actual soldiers who were in that battle). In one of these bits, a soldier recounts how he packed explosives near the entrance to a Jordanian bunker while under fire from all directions. He finishes with this: --> "I don't know why they gave me a commendation. All I wanted was to get back home in one piece."
