-->Doctor: "If you think because she is dead, I am weak, then you understand very little. If you were any part of killing her, and you're not afraid, then you understand nothing at all. So, for your own sake, understand this. I am the Doctor. I'm coming to find you, and I will never, ever stop.."

*From "Day of the Moon" [[spoiler: when the Doctor defeats the Silence]]:
-->Doctor: "And one whacking great kick up the backside for the Silence! ''You just raised an army against yourselves!'' And now, for a thousand generations, you're going to be ordering them to destroy you, every day. How fast can you run? Because today's the day the human race throws you off their planet, and they won't even know they're doing it. I think quite possibly the word you're looking for, right now, is...whoops, run. Guys, I mean us: RUN!"

* From "The Girl Who Died", after the Doctor remembers where he got his face from:
-->Doctor: "I know where I got this face and I know what it's for... To remind me. To hold me to the mark. I'm the Doctor and I save people and if anyone happens to be listening and you have any kind of a problem with that: TO HELL WITH YOU!"

* "Face the Raven" has the Doctor deliver one to Ashildr during his epic FreakOut over the impending death of Clara in which he threatens to bring down the might of UNIT, the Zygons and even his mortal enemies the Daleks and Cybermen and "rain hell on you for the rest of time." He furthermore momentarily renounces his name and tells Ashildr "I will end you and everything you love". Clara spends the rest of her (natural) life talking him down from following through.

** You can see him being affected by it, then resisting. In the end, he isn't able to defeat it on his own with sheer willpower, but every time it looks like it will overpower him, he is able to get back to his feet. He is able to try to shut down the machinery it was attached to, and, when that doesn't stop it, leave the room and bar the door. While it's a rare moment we see the Master in a great deal of distress, again, this thing was able to put the Doctor out of action in minutes, and leave anyone else dead in seconds. The Master is able to fight back, tell this thing ''exactly'' who it's dealing with, and then back up every word.

* Davros ''tries'':

to:

* Davros ''tries'': ''tries'' in "Remembrance of the Daleks":



* Perhaps the most magnificent example occurs in the 50th anniversary special, when the [[spoiler:War Doctor]], Tenth and Eleventh Doctors call the War Council of [[spoiler:Gallifrey]] and assure them that they'll do everything they can to save the planet and its commoners, [[ScienceHero without so much as firing a shot]]. While the members of the council admire their bravery and resolve, they question the technical feasibility of the idea, and especially the reasoning of the Doctors. Cue the [[HeartwarmingMoments following lines]] from the Tenth and Eleventh Doctor:

* In "The Witch's Familiar, he gets one that's not quite as long-winded as his most memorable speeches, but it gets to the point: He's [[spoiler: taken Davros' chair, being GenreSavvy enough to know that ''Davros'' is GenreSavvy enough to have it equipped with a force field Dalek beams can't penetrate. When what the Daleks think is Davros arrives, and the chair turns around and it's the Doctor]], and all the Daleks stop short, the Doctor says to them: "Admit it, you've all had this exact nightmare."
* Don't think the bad guys are no good at it. The title character of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E2TheMindOfEvil The Mind of Evil]]" isn't the Master after all, but a creature that is able to use people's worst fears to drive them to ''death,'' typically requiring only ''seconds.'' How's this thing work? Before anyone knows what's going on, a {{Redshirt}} who fears water is seems to go nuts, drops dead, and when examined, proves to have somehow drowned in a dry room. It even made one of the Doctor's hearts stop after he was exposed to its full potential for a couple of minutes. So what happens when it tries to bring down the Master?

-->'''The Doctor:''' I tried to talk, I want you to remember that. I tried to reach out, I tried to understand you, but I think that you understand us perfectly. And I think that you just don't care! And I don't know whether you are here to invade, infiltrate or just replace us. I don't suppose it really matters now, you are monsters! That is the role you seem determined to play, so it seems that '''I''' must play '''mine'''! The man that stops the monsters! I'm sending you back to your own dimension. Who knows? Some of you may even survive the trip, and if you do, remember this: ''you'' are not welcome here! This plane is protected! '''I''' am the Doctor! ''[catches his screwdriver]'' And I name you: the Boneless!

** Undercut when it's revealed that they were just pretending to be scared to lull him into a false sense of security, though the fact that they felt they still had to do this to convince the Doctor does speak volumes.



* However, the Doctor's ''timing'' for these is sometimes less than stellar. In addition to a couple mentioned earlier where he failed to make good on them, there's "The Lodger," where he hears somebody mention annihilating their enemies and immediately launches into one of his Oncoming Storm speeches about how he won't allow annihilation on his watch, only to belatedly realize they were talking about football.

** Of course, Rose herself gets to make a particularly effective boast (though it does pale in comparison to the Doctor's, it still gets points for being intended as a DefiantToTheEnd boast):

** Of course, you'll also just find a picture of him. Mostly against the [[JokerImmunity Daleks]] though.
** Also the Racnoss and, oh, [[spoiler:[[LastOfHisKind his own species]]]].



** The Beast is quite fond of these, actually.

** And of course, it ''also'' adds to the Doctor's badass points because... well, go on, guess what the Master's worst fear proved to be. Rather, guess who.
* And don't think it doesn't go back to the earliest days. In "The Sensorites," the title aliens have decided that letting the crew leave is too dangerous, and have taken a vital component of the TARDIS. They act like they're totally in control, until:

* In "The Christmas Invasion," Harriet Jones, Prime Minister ([[RunningGag Yes, we know who she is]]) is speaking to somebody LockedOutOfTheLoop about an oncoming invasion, and he's surprised at her speaking of aliens as being so common. We then get this:

** In this case, Dalek Sec is not only boasting, but making ''an objective statement of fact''. The odds really were that one-sided. In spite of the Cyber Leader calling in reinforcements, the Daleks later pretty much gunned them down with impunity.
