And if you make the claim be about Iris and Georgia instead about the tournament, you are essentially bringing this back to Iris undeserved arrogance from the Don Battle- where she said "you really think you can defeat me?" to the girl who's technically beaten her thrice. Which loops back into Iris being anything but humble.
What I dislike is the complete inability for some people to accept the fact that she HAS flaws. It's what makes her a decent character.
Iris is an undeservedly arrogant hypocrite with a mean streak. But that is an interesting thing in it's own right- but she needs to be called out on it so she can grow- and she never is.
Essentially, I like Iris, even this "jerkish" version. I just dislike that the writers aren't actually doing anything with it.
But nice to see that "Saying negative, but true things about a character= MUST BE A HATER" mentality.
And I will admit that being humble has nothing to do with your ability to back up your boasts. I double-checked the definition:
not proud or arrogant; modest: to be humble although successful.
having a feeling of insignificance, inferiority, subservience, etc.: In the presence of so many world-famous writers I felt very humble.
Trip is not actually especially arrogant, so he qualifies as humble. He has a certain amount of arrogance, but it's very, very limited(to Ash, were it's not so much arrogance as just being -_- about him, and to Bianca- which was understandable with her track record). He is, on the other hand, kind of a jerk. XD
Georgia and Iris are both pretty arrogant, but Iris is more so and can't back her arrogance up. Neither are humble. At all.
Burgundy isn't notably arrogant, just spiteful. She's not exactly humble, either, though.
