* In ''Transformers: Balancing Act'', EldritchAbomination BigBad PlanetEater Unicron gets a suitably epic one.
-->"''I am Unicron.''

-->''I am the darkest corner of your mind. I am the cruelty hidden in your heart. I am savagery. I am rage. I am hate. Every murder you imagine, every bleeding fantasy, every vengeance. Every repressed urge, every unrealized perversion. I am all of these. Every intelligent creature turns its tools to murder eventually. I am there, in the sweat and the blood, and the inertia of an action that once done cannot be undone.''

-->''I am hunger. The energy released by a life extinguished is my food, strife the wine with which I drink it down. The geography of dreams deferred and love unrequited mirror the sublime hills and valleys of my brainwaves. I am the dense, unfathomable insanity of a possessed mind.''

-->''Entropy, decay, death are things of the natural order - Petty, corporeal facsimilies of my will. I am beyond such things. I am no mere force of nature. No phenomenon to be studied, codified, and circumvented by the inventiveness of lesser beings. I am the collapse of natural order. A formless, infinite nothing petty corporeal minds cannot imagine. Total annihilation. Peace in an endless emptiness, the heart and totality of which I alone encompass.''

-->'' '''I am Unicron.'''"''

** In ''Comicbook/WarWorld'':
*** Comicbook/TheSpectre does not boast. He states facts.
---->'''The Spectre:''' (to Superman) You are powerful, my friend — but The Spectre is power — incarnate!
*** Superman's reply was impressive-sounding, if powerless:
---->'''Superman:''' You're still standing between me and [[Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} my cousin]] — and unless you let me by you... I swear I'll go right through you!

-->'''Kara''': Look -- here's the problem. You've done some bad things, but I'm really, really upset right now. So much so that, honestly, I don't trust myself. And if you attack me or I attack you... I will hurt you. I will hurt you worse than you've ever been hurt in your whole life. I can carve you up by looking at you. I can break you, boil you, freeze you. I can do things you can't imagine. Things I can't imagine, until I have to, and then I'll improvise. Part of me is hoping that you will attack. And part of me is praying -- for your sake and my own peace of mind -- that you don't. It's up to you. Oh... And, Rebel... I have eyes that can see through solid matter. I have ears that can hear your slightest word, your heartbeat, your breathing. You do anything that hurts others... I will find you. And you won't like it. Do we have an understanding?
