TheHero has burst into the scene, has saved the girl, and is holding the villain at [[CoolSword sword]][=/=][[CoolGuns gun]]-point. The villain (or maybe some other bystander), bewildered, demands "Who are you?" The hero usually responds with a BadassBoast, although a big monologue is not necessary. Sufficiently awesome heroes can get away with just their name, which is especially effective if it's [[EstablishingCharacterMoment the first time the audience is hearing it]], or [[MeaningfulRename the first time the character has referred to himself by that name.]] A common subversion is when the boast is [[NegatedMomentOfAwesome interrupted]]. If the hero's actions are especially amazing, the villain may demand, "WhatAreYou?" instead.

Added DiffLines:

* Played for laughs in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'': Peter Quill is captured taking the Infinity Stone in the opening scene by Korath the Pursuer, who demands to know who he is. Peter dramatically identifies himself as Star-Lord, but rather than impressed, Korath and his men are just confused, much to Peter's exasperation.
-->'''Korath the Pursuer''': Who are you?\\
'''Peter Quill''': There's one other name you might know me by... Star-Lord.\\
'''Korath''': ...Who?\\
'''Peter''': Star-Lord, man. Legendary Outlaw.\\
''Korath and his {{mooks}} shrug helplessly.''\\
'''Peter''': ... Guys?

*** At the beginning of the episode, right after an artificial earthquake, Matt roofhops over from his apartment, still wearing suit and tie, and beats up some teenage looters as well as an overzealous store owner trying to shoot them with a shotgun. As Matt is catching his breath, a homeless man nearby utters a bewildered "Who ''are'' you?" before Matt walks away.

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNvP35v3lS4 When asked this question]], Reese muses that he really needs to think up an answer to give people, although his usual response is some variation on "[[CatchPhrase a concerned third party]]". Played seriously in a later episode when he replies, "I find it hard to answer that, even to myself." And in "Trojan Horse" he's being shot at when asked this question, so he replies, "Right now? An easy target." In "RAM", we see Reese's predecessor on the job saving a DamselInDistress, and he smoothly answers, "Protector of the innocent. Heard you could use some protecting", before talking her into RescueSex, [[EstablishingCharacterMoment showing he's more arrogant and less moral]] than Reese.

* ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' gets this question [[PhraseCatcher a lot]] (usually preceded with a [[JapanesePronouns rude pronoun]]) when he finishes his KirkSummation. The correct answer is, "Just a passing-through Kamen Rider. Remember that!"
