Like Muhammad Ali, truly arrogant, but truly a great fighter. Of course, there are few things more obnoxious than people who are arrogant but aren't actually competent.
... I think it's because as long as there is elite skill behind the arrogance, it makes the ego huge but not fragile. So in my experience at least, arrogant people of this sort actually tend to be quite mentally stable, good at dealing with stress, and often quite humorous. I sometimes even question if arrogance is a bad quality when it's genuine.
... like Maverick from Top Gun as another example: cocky, arrogant, full of himself, show-boater... but truly great:https://youtu.be/xa_z57UatDY
