    Default Best examples of "humblebragging" in wuxia?

    You know the "humblebrag": someone says something that, taken at face value, appears to be very humble and self-deprecating, but below the surface, quietly boasts. Can you think of any memorable instances of wuxia characters humblebragging about themselves or their martial arts?
