The current quote is not relevant to the trope.
"You have the effrontery to be squeamish. But we were dragons. We were supposed to be cruel, cunning, heartless and terrible. But this much I can tell you, you ape — We never burned and tortured and ripped one another apart and called it morality."
The quote isn't painting either humans or dragons as holding themselves morally superior because they don't kill their own kind. The dragon is condemning humans for calling violence and cruelty moral actions. The entry on the novel says the quote is ambiguous, but it's not. Some people just have poor reading comprehension. The example should be removed too. I'm leaving it right now because I don't know if it's considered bad form to delete a quote without a replacement, but it really should be changed.
Agreed, and took both out.
This seems too ambiguous to use: We aren't let in on exactly what they are thinking. Another explanation is that the third alien is making a Heroic Sacrifice for the species.
Examples are not discussion threads. Tips Worksheet: "The idea is to make articles in Main look like they were written by the same person". Please do not natter. On balance this seems not to be a good example, if it is an example. If it is an example please utilize Example Indentation and Repair Dont Respond when returning it to main: double stars are for sub-examples such as works with a series or episodes of a show. They are not to be used as paragraph breaks in extended sections of prose, again please see Example Indentation.
