Revived, pissed off, and with an agenda, Wilson proceeded kill all the guards at the facility, giving one a huge wedgie and getting ready to free all the other prisoners. Ajax, stunned, stammered that Wilson couldn't possible be doing what he was doing.

* ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'': The Saint of Killers haD this to say after a 50 megaton nuke is dropped on him: "Not enough gun." Earlier in the series, when a fanatical group of soldiers was pouring bullets into him, stabbing him, doing human wave attacks, and basically every other thing they could think of to try and take him down, their sergeant yelled "GIVE HIM HELL!" The Saint of Killers was unimpressed, to say the least.

I have killed so very ''many'' war gods. And gods of fear. Gods of chaos. Gods of blood and wrath and jealousy and lies. Of plagues and earthquakes. Genocide and revenge. Of degradation and death. Very few gods of poetry and flowers. Though I killed those just the same. Tell me now, Prince of Asgard, before all you're able to do is whimper and scream...what was Thor the god of before he died?"
** Although Thor also gets props for his one-word answer:

* Oracle at the end of ''[[ComicBook/{{Convergence}} Convergence: Nightwing/Oracle #1]]'' regarding how to deal with Flashpoint Hawkman and Hawkgirl and why she didn't go with Nightwing to fight them.
-->'''Oracle''': They have eyes everywhere. They're listening to everything we say. I know that technique. I ''invented'' that technique. The reason I couldn't go with you to fight in the rocks to the north...? It's because I'm BARBARA FREAKING GORDON. Also known as '''Oracle'''. And I started fighting them ten minutes ago.

Perhaps the best is delivered by [[spoiler: Phobos to Norman Osborn after Osborn has just tried to bribe Phobos into revealing Nick Fury's location by giving him toy trucks.

-->In Akkad and Elam they called me '''Baarish-Shammon''', and when they threw their children alive into the fire-pits it was my name that was on their lips.

-->And you're still '''dumb enough''' to think you can beat me?



* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' Season 8, after neutralizing his special powers, Willow tosses Dracula his sword, which is intercepted by an enemy vampire. As Dracula takes the sword away from the vampire and uses it to slice him up, the following exchange happens.
--> '''Toru:''' Just like an old man. He needs his cane to stand. Doesn't know what to do with himself now that he's an ordinary vampire. Like the rest of us.

[[YouHaveNoIdeaWhoYoureDealingWith Or did you forget who I used to be?]] I've [[BlasphemousBoast killed more men than God's plagues combined]]. And that was before I started eating people for fun.

-->'''Shadow:''' "'''I am''' Shadow the Hedgehog. '''I am''' the union of ideals dark and benign but ultimately built in the name of love. '''I am''' the UltimateLifeForm. '''I am''' the protector of Mobius. Run home to your master and tell him. This is who '''I am'''."



* In ''[[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFiendshipIsMagic My Little Pony: Fiendship Is Magic #1]]'', Sombra gets a good one when he awakens his true power. "Destruction was my talent, and darkness was my cutie mark."

* ''ComicBook/FearItself'': TheJuggernaut [[spoiler: or rather Colossus, after becoming the new Juggernaut]] gets one as his internal monologue, while fighting Null, Breaker of Stone [[spoiler: who is the previous Juggernaut, possessed by an Asgardian demon]]
-->"His lightning could incinerate armies. My bones crumble beneath his fists. He is stronger than me. He is faster than me. He is more powerful than me in all ways but one. He cannot stop me. How could he? I can't even stop myself."
* ComicBook/{{Galactus}} gives us a variant: the badass version of ThankYourPrey:
-->"Of all the creatures in the vastness of the universe, there is none like me. I was present at the birth of the universe, and I shall be there at its end. Though I ravage worlds to live, I bear no malice to any living thing. I simply do what I must to survive. And why must Galactus survive? For, no matter how many worlds I devour... how many civilizations I destroy... it is my destiny to one day give back to the universe -- infinitely more than I have ever taken from it. So speaks Galactus."






* From the first incarnation of the ''Franchise/IronMan'' villain Titanium Man:
-->''"I am real, puny fools. I am power unparalleled. I am...the Titanium Man. If you cannot accept the uselessness of your weapons then feel the overwhelming onslaught I direct at any who delay me in the task I must perform, and BELIEVE!"''



* Ultimate Quicksilver was really great in the first two volumes of ''ComicBook/TheUltimates''; after the US is invaded by a hostile army of foreign superhumans, he saves Hawkeye from the enemy speedster by dragging her along with him until she ''vibrates apart'', at the same time delivering what must be the fastest badass boast in history: "You want fast, Hurricane? I'll give you fast. What kind of limits did they take you to back home? Mach five? Mach ''ten''? I was hitting those numbers when I still had pimples. (...) Feel your bones rattling like you're on a freight train? That's molecules dancing. That's what happens when you ''threaten'' my ''friends''!" The kicker is that he apparently does saves like that all the time, but nobody notices it and few people believe it when he tells them because he does it so ''fast''.



* ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'':
** "Nemesis?" "The Warlock! The one who waits on the edge of your dreams ... The Shape of Things to Come ... The Lord of the Flies ... The Death Bringer ... I am all these and many more ... "
** "CREDO!"
** Torquemada couldn't be worse:

* ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}''[='=]s Spider Jerusalem immediately after being beaten half to death by three armed police officers:
-->"Ha '''haaaa''' hahahaha hah! I'm here to stay! Shoot me and I'll spit your goddamn bullets back in your face! I'm Spider Jerusalem, and fuck all of you! ''Ha!''"
* ''Comicbook/IKillGiants'':
-->I will unleash a terrible fury and do things to you that will make God cry.
* ''Comicbook/{{Fables}}'': "You dumb bastards! I'm Snow White! I run Fabletown and I'm ''never'' outgunned!"
** And, later: "[[spoiler:Brandish]] thinks ''his'' heart is cold and tough? Mine's been made of stone since I was a child. Monsters of the woods couldn't kill me. The armies of kings, sorcerers and empires couldn't. I'm Snow ''Goddamn'' White. I look after myself. I look after my own. And I never lose."
** Frau Totenkinder gets one toward the end of the ''March of The Wooden Soldiers'': "I was ''always'' stronger than you thought. Killed a ''dozen'' times, but it never took. Even burned to ashes in my own ''oven'', I came back, after a good while. How's ''that'' for a frail old biddy, eh? Now you hush and let me finish my knitting.

* From ''ComicBook/IgnitionCity'':
-->I'm 26 years old. I've been to the Moon, and Mars, and Venus. I've slept with asteroid gypsies, broken sloats, and fought with the eighth insurgency on Forest. I shot a man on Khargu because he needed to die more than any I've ever met. I repaired three rocket tubes with a wrench and a knife while hanging upside down over Titan during the syzygy. I'm 26 years old and my life is over now. So direct me please to the man who'll sell me a gun, and the place where my dad was shot dead in his sleep, for I have business to attend to before I lay down in my grave.
* ''ComicBook/DesolationJones'' has a particularly memorable one:

''[Rolls up his sleeve, revealing a biohazard tattoo]''\\
[[PlayingWithSyringes This means I was tortured for a year.]] [[MindRape This means I experienced death for a full year, twenty-four hours a day.]] You know what you learn from that? Death is easy.

* Although ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'' prefers the DeathGlare to the BadassBoast, some of his opponents have given impressive boasts. Among the most memorable is Jei's:
--> '''Jei:''' I am the Blade of the Gods. They have given me the gift of discernment. [[PreAssKickingOneLiner I sense that you are... evil.]]
* In ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyMicroSeries'' Issue #2 much of Rainbow Dash's and the Cloud Gremlins' dialogue consists of this.
--> '''Rainbow Dash:''' I don't know if you've noticed, but I'm pretty awesome. I'm [[Creator/PaulNewman Pony Newman's]] Hickory-Infused Awesomesauce[tm].
