I reckon that's more how the villain has moulded our protagonist into a carbon copy of him/herself rather than thinking s/he personally is the greatest.

The 'ex' character has magic in their eyes, is ablaze and alive etc. but all along they're dead inside. As our hero says, "I've become just like you" - they're not great at all; it's the image they're portraying to the rest of the world that's great when actually, they've been turned into another soulless drone.

(Dead Inside describes my ex so accurately it's frightening. I had my personality eroded away over almost ten years by someone who everyone thinks is fantastic, but shows a totally different face when it's just the two of you. I also get to work with him and hear our colleagues saying what a decent bloke he is. I've stopped being quiet about it. Dead Inside gives me many feels on this subject, along with Handler.)
