-->'''Thor:''' I am the God of Thunder and Lightning spoken of in ancient myth and whispered legend, Snape. I am he who battled Jormungand, the father of all great serpents, and fought the greatest Jotunheim had to offer when Merlin was but a suckling babe. I am Thor Odinson, God of the Vikings. [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Not a petty conjuror of cheap trricks.]] All the power of the storm, from all the world, flows through my veins. It can be summoned by my hammer at any time, wherever it is. A lightning storm in Japan? Mine. A hurricane off the coast of Barbados? Mine again. A brace of tornadoes in Kansas? Mine. All that might, all that destructive force, ''mine'' to command.

* At one point in the ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' anime, Eren can't bring himself to fight because of recent revelations creating subconscious doubt [[spoiler: and the fact that he's been severely injured.]] His friends try to snap him out of it, each in their own way characteristic to them. Mikasa simply says that "[[CatchPhrase The world is a]] [[CrapsackWorld cruel place]]" and that there is [[TakeAThirdOption no other option]]: [[CallBack it's fight or die]]. Armin tells Eren "[[HeroicSacrifice Someone who can't sacrifice anything]] [[CatchPhrase can never hope to change anything]]" and encourages him to [[TheUnfettered abandon his humanity to combat an inhuman threat]]. Jean [[WhatTheHellHero brusquely]] reminds him that everyone's trusting him enough to give their lives for him and that if they stop now, [[spoiler: Marco]]'s death will mean nothing. By the time Eren finishes, we're given a summary of everything that's influenced him and motivates him to keep going on, including the discussion of choices he had with Levi and being forced to live with the consequences.

** Just before the climax of "The Doctor Falls", the Doctor tries to get [[spoiler: the Saxon!Master and Missy]] to help him in what looks to be a hopeless LastStand against the Cybermen, giving a speech that may very define him and his character better than any other:
-->'''The Doctor''': Iím not trying to win. Iím not doing this because I want to beat someone, because I hate someone, or because I want to blame someone. Itís not because itís fun. God knows itís not because itís easy. Itís not even because it works because it hardly ever does. I do what I do because itís right! Because itís decent! And above all, itís kind! Itís just thatÖ Just kind. If I run away today, good people will die. If I stand and fight, some of them might live. Maybe not many, maybe not for long. Hey, you know, maybe thereís no point to any of this at all. But itís the best I can do. So Iím going to do it. And Iím going to stand here doing it until it kills me. And youíre going to die too! Some dayÖ And how will that be? Have you thought about it? What would you die for? Who I am is where I stand. Where I stand is where I fall.

->''"[[Franchise/{{Batman}} That man]] won't quit as long as he can still draw a breath. None of [[ComicBook/JusticeLeague my teammates]] will. Me? I've got a different problem. I feel like I live in a '''world made of cardboard''', always taking care not to break something, to break ''someone''. Never allowing myself to lose control even for a moment, or someone could ''die''. But you can take it, can't you, [[ComicBook/{{Darkseid}} big man]]? What we have here is a rare opportunity for me to cut loose and show you just how powerful I really am."''

-->'''Winter''': (''to Angelina Love'') There's nothing wrong with you Angelina. In fact, you're perfect. But you don't have to worry. Now that we're together, we will never have to lose again. I guarantee that. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis WE. WILL. NEVER. LOSE.]]
* On Wrestling/{{TNA}}'s April 14, 2011 edition, Mickie James confronts her archenemy Madison Rayne, who the previous week hit her with a motorcycle. She gives her own speech, telling Madison that while she has been making her life a living hell, the previous week she went too far and tried to take the [[DirtyCoward coward's way out]] of their match. She then states that ''nothing'', including her dislocated shoulder, will stop her from beating Madison to within an inch of her life at ''Lockdown''. And she meant every word, ''[[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown completely destroying]]'' Madison at ''Lockdown'' in [[CurbStompBattle 36 seconds]]. Deserves special mention for Mickie's completely badass delivery of the speech.
