骄兵必败【jiāo bīng bì bài】

The imperial army of Han was enclosed by the Xiongnu when fighting the Cheshi State. The general thought the Xiongnu was defeasible when he received the news. However, the prime minister thought only people who had inflated egos would show off their ability to gain a sense of superiority, and they were doomed to fail. The emperor took his suggestion and commanded him not to fight.

[Definition] A pride army will ultimately lose.
