->''"JustForFun/{{Hello}}. [[TropeNamers My name is Inigo Montoya]]. {{You killed my father}}. {{Prepare to die}}."''
-->-- ''Film/ThePrincessBride'' (in one of the most [[TropeOverdosed trope-heavy]] statements in the history of film; incidentally, it [[TropeNamers named most of them]])

Before a duel begins, one character announces himself to his opponent without any prompting because he wants his target to know [[PreAssKickingOneLiner who is about to pound him.]]

Causes can be GenocideBackfire, YouKilledMyFather, or there could be nothing personal and the hero is just doing this ForGreatJustice. It can lead to ButForMeItWasTuesday.

This trope is also very common in Japanese anime, manga and videogames regardless of situation: It was part of the {{Samurai}} code of honour to tell your opponent your name before fighting them and not doing so was considered rude.

May directly accompany a HeroicSecondWind.[[note]]Which, for those of you wondering, is the [[Administrivia/LaunchDisplacement new name of the old trope that used to be called My Name Is Inigo Montoya.]][[/note]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Occurs a lot in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''.
** Most of the Arrancar seem to have some sort of honor hangup where they need to know their opponent's name. Byakuya flat out refuses to give his because he doesn't see any point in giving his name to someone who's about to die, and Mayuri only asks Szayel's name because he wants to know what to label the jar he'll be in. Yes, all of them are guilty of adding in their rank for ''no real reason''. Only Ulquiorra and Yammy were late on it; Ulquiorra didn't bother with his last name until he'd already killed Ichigo, and Yammy did it when he off-screened Rukia, Renji, and Chad.
** This trope is directly invoked by Ikkaku, who believes that you should only introduce yourself to an opponent if you intend to kill them. Which makes this line all the more badass.
-->"I'm the 3rd seated officer of Zaraki's division, Madarame Ikakku! You don't have to tell me your name, you just have to remember mine...because it's the name of the man who'll kick your ass!"
** Ichigo's inner Hollow: [[AvertedTrope I have no name]]!
*** Later, Ichigo's inner Hollow reveals that this statement was false, and tells Ichigo his actual name. The true significance of this isn't revealed to the readers for another ''six years''.
--->"I am... [[spoiler:[[WhamLine Zangetsu]]]]!"
** [[ZigzaggingTrope Zigzagged]] with the Vandenreich, as its members have varying degrees of [[CombatPragmatist Combat Pragmatism]]. The Stern Ritter who fights Kyouraku during the first assault clearly feels no need to introduce himself, as 40 chapters later we STILL don't know his name. On the other hand, [[spoiler:Haschwalth]], Kyouraku's opponent in the second assault, makes a very formal introduction, which Kyouraku reciprocates.
* ''TowerOfGod'': Ren introducing himself to Anak.
---> "From the Royal Enforcement Division, no. 67, my name is Ren. I am your nemesis.''
* In ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'', Shoutmon tends to begin a fight with something along the lines of "We are the ones who will change this world! We are Xros Heart!"
* PlayedForLaughs in RurouniKenshin:
---> "I, Misao Makimachi, see no compelling reason to give villians like you my name!"
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' (technically ''Anime/DragonBallKai''): "I'm a proud Saiyan who calls Earth home, and I'm here to defeat you. I am the warrior you've heard of in legends, pure of heart and awakened by fury. That's what I am. I AM THE SUPER SAIYAN, '''SON GOKU'''!"
* ''Literature/FateZero'': Rider particularly does this, in the form of exposing himself as [[spoiler:[[AlexanderTheGreat Iskandar]], the King of Conquerors.]]
* ''GaoGaiGar'': "My name is [[CharClone J]]! [[BadAss Soldat]] [[HeelFaceTurn J]]!"
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'': Played straight and inverted.
** ''My name is Haruhi Suzumiya and I'm from east Junior high. I have no interest in ordinary humans! if any of you are aliens, time travelers, sliders or espers, come join me. that is all.
** She introduces herself to the Computer President ''after'' [[DynamicEntry drop-kicking him.]] Also, she was accepting his challenge instead of delivering one.
* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'': Polnareff gets in an epic one when he figures out how to beat Hanged Man:
-->'''Polnareff''':''Hey, Kakyoin. You don't say things like that in this kind of a situation. Listen! [[InvokedTrope In situations like this, you've got to say something more like this before you get your revenge.]] My name is Jean Pierre Polnareff. For my sister's honor, and so that my friend Avdol can rest in peace... I'm going to hurl you into the depths of despair, Centerfold!''
** Immediately after, Kakyoin gets one as well.
-->'''Kakyoin''':''[[IronicEcho Polnareff, that's not what you say here. When taking revenge, you shouldn't say, "Why, you...". You say this.]] My name is Noriaki Kakyoin. To avenge my friend, Avdol, and so the soul of Polnareff's sister may rest in peace, I will have you pay with your life.''
* ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'': Hibarin from Monster Tamer Tsuna, "I am Hibarin, the dreadful vampire. My address is Demon Valley 2-4. I love Salisbury steak and coconut juice. My hobby is to have fun by myself. And to bite weak people to death. And to play with birds." Cue Tsuna lampshading this trope, "He's giving an introduction when nobody asked for one! And it's taking forever." And Hibari finishing his monologue with this: "And to patrol my castle. That's right. I have one last thing to say. I'm not much of a talker.
* [[VillainProtagonist Light Yagami]] from Manga/DeathNote informs Naomi Misora that he is Kira, [[spoiler: approximately one second before her death kicks in]].
* ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' A's: "Time-Space Administration Bureau Part-time mage, Fate Testarossa." She does this right after saving Nanoha and right before attempting to place Vita under arrest.
** Done again by both parties during ep 12.
* ''MahouSenseiNegima'' Accompanying a HeroicSecondWind:
-->'''Nodoka:''' I am Miyazaki Nodoka, treasure hunter and member of Ala Alba. [[LetsGetDangerous My counterattack starts here.]]
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': "My name is Naruto Uzumaki, and I'm gonna beat every one of ya!"
* This happens a lot in the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, especially during gym battles.
* ''RanmaHalf'': I am Ranma Saotome of the [[MartialArtsAndCrafts Saotome School of Anything-Goes Martial Arts]] ([[ItMakesSenseInContext here, hold my bag a sec]]). I [[NobodyCallsMeChicken accept your challenge]]!
* ''ShakuganNoShana'': "I am a Flame Haze, one who swore and chose to protect the balance of the world!"
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''
** The heroes have a catchphrase that precisely announces a 'I AM/WE ARE XXX' shout by whoever it is to kick ass: WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM/WE ARE?!"
** This trope became Nia's first CrowningMomentOfAwesome! "The Spiral King Lordgenome's eldest daughter, Nia Teppelin commands you to stand down, Andiane the Elegant! Are you aware of who I am?" Simon and Yoko instantly did a "holy shit!" expression upon hearing it.
** Two episodes later, Simon's [[HesBack meteoric return]] had him pulling off one: "[[spoiler:My Bro is dead. He's gone. But on my back and in my heart, he continues to live on!]] ''(Guame: "Huuuuh?!")'' [[HotBlooded Drilling to pierce the heavens: even if I'm digging my own grave, as long as I break through, it's my victory!]] ''(Guame: "What? What the hell are you talking about?!")'' [[CatchPhrase Who the hell do you think I am?]] I'm not my Bro, [[MemeticBadass Kamina]]. I AM ME! SIMON THE DIGGER!!!" Then he proceeds to kick major amounts of ass...
** Simon continues this in the final showdown with Lordgenome as a PreAssKickingOneLiner:
-->'''Simon:''' My Name is Simon. [[TheLeader Leader]] of Team Dai-Gurren. If you've decided to be a wall that's standing in my way, I've got something that will open a hole in you every time. And that something is MY DRILL!
* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', magicians have a Magic Name, which they typically only reveal in a very serious situation, like when they declare they will kill someone, or when they need to use their full power.
* ''Anime/RomeoXJuliet'': "I am Juliet Fiamatta Ars Di Capulet!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comicbooks]]
* When a brainwashed and tortured {{Wolverine}} first recovers his memories and powers in the "Insane in the Brain" storyline:
-->'''Dr. Rot:''' This is your last chance, Patient X. Do you hear me? ''Patient X?''\\
'''Wolverine:''' No...\\
''([[OhCrap snikt]])''\\
'''Wolverine:''' My name... is '''Logan!'''
* This gem from ''{{Superman}}: Man of Steel'' #96 in 2000, as Eradicator was trying to get him to turn away from his Human upbringing.
-->'''Superman''': My name is ''Clark Kent''. Get out of my home. '''''Get off my planet.'''''
* In ''Comicbook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderThePromise'', after someone throws a rock at Sokka, Toph comes to defend him with this:
-->"That's it! Don't you dunderheads know who I am? I'm Toph Bei Fong, the greatest earthbender of all time! When my friend tells you to calm down, you calm down!"
* This classic from 'TheMightyThor' Vol 1, #379 in 1987, by Thor himself to Jormungand.
--> But I have many names, serpent, even as you. Vingthor the Hurler, Longbeard's Son, have I been called. Hrodr's foeman, too. In Tyr's ancestral home, wisest Hymir knew my name as Veur; unhappy Hrungnir's playmate some have called me. East of Elvigar in Gianthome they whisper Hloriddi's name. My father called me son. My mother called me darling. And beneath the vaults of Heaven, I am ''Thor Odinson, the Thunderer, Jormungand's Fear!''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcI0vOSD6h0 .hack Trilogy Abridged]]'', Haseo's version of this is: "My Name Is Haseo the Terror of Death, you killed my Shino, PrepareToDie!!", and he says it when he battles Tri-Edge.

* The Fanfic/ElementalChessTrilogy gives [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Roy Mustang]] a short speech like this, when confronting TheMole of the second story.
* ''FanFic/TheImmortalGame'': Twilight Sparkle has a brief, but epic, moment like this when [[BigBad Titan]] is torturing her, while referring to her as "pony", "unicorn", and by the name of one of her ancestors who fought him the first time around. [[spoiler: The pain causes her mind -- which had previously [[SplitPersonality fractured]] from trauma earlier in the story -- to [[SplitPersonalityMerge fuse back together]], restoring Twilight to her [[HesBack true personality and power]].]] Cue [[CurbStompBattle asskicking]].
-->"My name is not Coruscare. My name is not unicorn. My name is not pony. [[HesBack My name is]] ''[[HesBack Twilight Sparkle.]]''"
* ''Fanfic/AceCombatTheEquestrianWar'': Fluttershy, before unleashing a beatdown on Night Raven and after he scoffs at her.
-->'''Night Raven''': Who do you think you are, you wimp?\\
'''Fluttershy''': My name is Fluttershy! I’m a member of the Mirage squadron! And I've sworn to protect Equestria and my friends! I’m a pony that represents the Element of Kindness! But, to you... [[PreAssKickingOneLiner I will show no mercy]]!
* ''Fanfic/TheWizardInTheShadows'': Harry, DeadpanSnarker that he is, considers that he should have used a variation on the original to Voldemort: [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "Hello. My Name is Harry Potter. You killed my parents. Prepare to die."]]
** This is after he quotes the 'to the pain' speech to the Mouth of Sauron.
* In the ''FanFic/{{Horseshoes and Hand Grenades}}'' sidestory, ''Month of Sundays'': "I am Akiko Narumi-Terui, daughter of the famous Souichi Narumi...[[spoiler: and the new Kamen Rider Skull!]] Prepare to die!"
* In the fan film ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ffeLRuKCI0 The Jedi Hunter]]'', which spoofs the ''Franchise/StarWars'' franchise in the form of ''The Series/CrocodileHunter'' with Boba Fett in the Steve Irwin role, Boba utters the trope almost word-for-word in his climactic showdown with Mace Windu:

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* ''MonstersVsAliens'': "My Name...is Ginormica!"

* From ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'':
-->'''Maximus:''' [[TryToFitThatOnABusinessCard My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions]]. [[OfferedTheCrown Loyal servant]] to the ''true'' emperor, Marcus Aurelius. [[PapaWolf Father to a murdered son]], [[ItsPersonal Husband to a murdered wife]], [[PrepareToDie and I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next]].
* Occupation version: in the second ''NightAtTheMuseum'', Larry finishes his fight with Kahmunrah with "I'm the nightguard".
* "I am Franchise/{{Batman}}!" Done at least once per continuity. [[Quotes/{{Batman}} Take a look.]] And this is still not all of them
* ''Film/{{The Neverending Story}}'': "If we're about to die anyway, I'd rather die fighting! [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Come for me, G'mork! I am Atreyu]]!"

* Beautifully subverted in ''Film/OnceUponATimeInTheWest''. Harmonica never tells Frank his name. When Frank demands to know, he gives him plenty of names, but none of them his.
-->'''Frank:''' Who are you?\\
'''Harmonica:''' Jim Cooper, Chuck Youngblood.\\
'''Frank:''' More dead men.\\
'''Harmonica:''' They were all alive until they met you, Frank.
** Played straight, however in A Few Dollars More, where Mortimer called out Indio with "Colonel Douglas Mortimer, Indio - does that name mean anything to you!"

* ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'': "The class is Pain 101. Your instructor is Casey Jones."

--> John Harrison was a fiction created the moment I was awoken by your Admiral Marcus to help him advance his cause, a smokescreen to conceal my true identity. [[spoiler: My name is... ''KHAN''.]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* In ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'' all the way through the book Inigo has been practicing his speech. After a huge buildup, when he finally gets to deliver it in the climax to his lifelong search, honing his sword skills for the battle of his life, his enemy runs away like a little girl. Of course, Inigo then chased Rugen down, and then repeated the speech several times with increasing volume as they dueled.
* Original ConanTheBarbarian loved this. Best known example is probably in The Frost Giant's Daughter, where Conan and his opponent ''exchange'' this.
-->"Man," said he, "tell me your name, so that my brothers in [[ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming Vanaheim]] may know who was the last of Wulfhere's band to fall before the sword of Heimdul."
-->"Not in Vanaheim," growled [[ConanTheBarbarian the black-haired warrior]], "[[BadassBoast but in Valhalla]] will you tell your brothers that you met Conan of Cimmeria."
* Used to great effect in the ''Literature/CodexAlera'' book ''Captain's Fury,'' when Tavi reveals that he is [[spoiler:Princeps Gaius Octavian]]. Happens to be punctuated by a purely coincidental, plot relevant, volcanic eruption hundreds of miles away.
* In ''[[Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo 1634: The Galileo Affair]]'', by Eric Flint and Andrew Dennis, there's a line something like "My name is Ruy Sanchez de Casador y Ortiz. Prepare to die," then subverts the reference's HeroicSecondWind. Our friendly neighborhood old fart proceeds to slaughter and get cut up, while his much-younger girlfriend-from-the-future wonders when he had a chance to read ''Literature/ThePrincessBride'' and another uptimer realizes he '''didn't''' -- he's Inigo Montoya's ''prototype''.
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'':
-->'''Harry:''' My name is Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. [[BadassBoast Conjure by it at your own risk.]]
* Averted in Creator/CordwainerSmith's "On the Sand Planet", where Casher O'Neill, after gaining enlightenment on his quest, does NOT use any of the scenes he has mentally rehearsed for years.
* In what George R. R. Martin admits is a homage to [[Film/ThePrincessBride Inigo Montoya]], ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' has [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Oberyn]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Martell]] doing this when he manages to arrange a duel with [[WorldsStrongestMan Gregor Clegane]], who 15 years earlier raped and murdered his sister and her infant son.
-->'''Oberyn:''' Have they told you who I am?\\
'''Gregor:''' Some dead man.\\
'''Oberyn:''' I am Oberyn Martell, a prince of Dorne. Elia was my sister.\\
'''Gregor:''' Who?\\
'''Oberyn:''' Elia of Dorne. [[YouKilledMyFather You raped her. You murdered her. You killed her children]].
** To which Gregor, after a few repetitions of the phrase, shouts, "Be quiet. Shut your bloody mouth!" - in other words, "Stop saying that!"
** Also deconstructed hard. [[spoiler:Oberyn had very nearly won and could have killed Gregor, but he stopped to get a murder confession. This gave Gregor the opportunity to kill him]].
** Inverted in ''ADanceWithDragons'', after[[spoiler: Theon Greyjoy]] pulls a CrowningMomentOfAwesome by[[spoiler: saving Jeyne Pool from Ramsay Bolton and getting both of them to reach Stannis's army safe and sound]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Theon''']]: You have to know your ''name''.
* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings:''
-->'''Strider:''' I am Aragorn son of Arathorn, and I am called Elessar, the Elfstone, Dunadan, the heir of Isildur Elendil's son of Gondor. Here is [[CoolSword the Sword that was Broken]] and is forged again! Will you aid me or thwart me? Choose swiftly!
** For greater BadAss-itude, he later calls out BigBad ''Sauron'' via Palantír, saying much the same (except for the aid or thwart me bit).
* Played with in the Literature/{{Discworld}} novel Discworld/ThiefOfTime, where it's done in third-person after a [[BlatantLies lowly]] [[AlmightyJanitor janitor]] dares to enter the dojo of an ArrogantKungFuGuy.
-->'''OldMaster:''' Hold! Do you not want to know the name of the man you are about to destroy?\\
'''ArrogantKungFuGuy:''' I don’t need to know the name of a sweeper.\\
'''OldMaster:''' [[NiceToTheWaiter It is always wise to know the name of a sweeper, boy.]] And my question was not addressed to you.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* {{Smallville}}
-->'''Clark''': My name is Clark Kent.
** And also...
-->'''Clark, "reprogrammed" by Jor-El''': I am Kal-El from Krypton.
** A chilling example from ''Harvest'': "My name is [[spoiler:Lex]]."
* ''Series/{{Highlander}}''
-->'''Duncan:''' I am Duncan Mcleod, of the clan Mcleod.
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' does this in Season 7's "Finale", where Dr. Cox is telling a Bedtime story to his son. Cox, as a brave knight, says to a monster (in reality an illness affecting a patient):
-->'''Cox:''' My name is Percival Cox. You're killing my friend. Prepare to die.
* ''Series/BabylonFive''
-->"Who am I? I am Susan Ivanova. Commander. Daughter of Andrei and Sophie Ivanov. I am the right hand of vengeance, and the boot that is going to kick your sorry ass all the way back to Earth, sweetheart! I am Death Incarnate, and the last living thing that you are ever going to see. God sent me."
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': The Doctor himself has done this on many occasions, especially post-Time War when he is the only living Time Lord. Some examples:
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead "Forest of the Dead"]]:
--->'''The Doctor:''' I'm the Doctor, and you're in the biggest library in the universe... look me up.\\
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E1TheEleventhHour "The Eleventh Hour"]]:
--->'''The Doctor:''' Is this world protected? 'Cause you're not the first one to have come here -- oh, there have been so many. And what you've got to ask is: what happened to them?... JustForFun/{{Hello}}. [[MyNameIsInigoMontoya I'm the Doctor.]] [[PrepareToDie Basically... Run.]]
** Season 5, in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E13TheBigBang "The Big Bang"]]:
--->'''River:''' I'm River Song. Check your records again.
* In Andromeda's "Music of a Distant Drum", a season one episode. Tyr loses his memory after a crash, and slowly regains it bit by bit. When he finally remembers:
-->'''Tyr:''' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis I AM TYR. ANASAZI.]] [[LargeHam Of Kodiak pride!]] [[IamXSonOfY Out of Victoria by Barbarossa!]] And I! Will Never! Surrender!
* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' Season 7, episode 1 does this with a slight twist. Towards the end, after [=McGee=] tries and fails to kill Saleem, Tony says to Saleem, "I told you about every member of the team, except myself. The part I play... I'm the wild card. I'm the guy who looks at the reality in front of him and refuses to accept it." (Technically Tony tells Saleem his name much earlier, but this is the point where he really tells Saleem WHO he is, and right before Saleem is killed.)
** Done as strait as an arrow in season 8, episode 23 with Mike Franks' last stand.
-->'''Franks''': My name is Mike Franks! I figure I got one more fight in me... You want it?
* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'': In the episode where George does the opposite of what he normally does, he meets an attractive woman. Since George normally gives fake identities when meeting people, he ends up doing this. [[spoiler: It actually works]]
--> '''George:''' Hi, my name is George. I'm unemployed and I live with my parents.
* ''Series/{{Nikita}}'': Alex does this to Vlad, the man who [[spoiler: sold her into white-slavery]].
-->'''Alex:''' I am Alexandra Udinov, daughter of Nicholai Udinov. And this is your reward.
* '''Mook Guard:''' You work, and you live. That is all. You do not complain or laugh or do anything besides work. Whatever you thought, whatever you were does not matter. You are no one now. You mean nothing. (to boy) Who are you?
--> '''ActionGirl:''' (perky) I'm Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer. And you are...? ''(TalkToTheFist ensues)''
* ''{{Skins}}'' does this in series four. Arguably Katie's CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
--> '''Katie:''' I'm Katie fucking Fitch, who the fuck are you?
* ''{{Lost}}'': Season 5, episode 12, Ben Linus upon approaching Penny Widmore: "Hello. My name is Benjamin Linus". He wasn't prepared to duel her, though; He was about to kill her when Desmond, whom he just tried to neutralized by shooting him, attacked him from behind.
* Mitchell from BeingHuman uses a non-violent version of the same style of threat to get a room full of Vampires to shut up and listen to him.
--> My name is John Mitchell! And I've killed more people than you've met.

[[folder:Music]]
* Music/JohnnyCash as the title character singing "A Boy Named Sue" when he meets his father, who gave him that name that caused guys to beat him to a pulp: "My name is Sue. [[{{Hello}} How do you do]]? [[PrepareToDie Now you're gonna die]]!"
* Also, Johnny Cash at the start of every show he ever did:
-->"Hello. I'm Johnny Cash."
* In The Distillers' "The Young Crazed Peeling", one of the lines in the first verse of the song goes like this:
->My name is Brody, I'm from Melbourne
->Fitzroy Melbourne, Fitzroy Melbourne
->I grew up on Bell St. then on Bennett St.
->My mom kicked out my dad for battery

* In ''Literature/TheOdyssey'', Odysseus just kicked the butt out of a Cyclops, Polyphemos. As he leaves he [[SarcasmMode brilliantly]] declares "Kyklops,/if ever mortal man inquire/how you were put to shame and blinded, tell him/Odysseus, raider of cities, took your eye:/Laertes' son, whose home's on Ithaka!" He may as well have given him the precise longitude and lattitude of his house, and just thrown in his social security number, too.
** Protip: if you live in Greece's "Age of Heroes" and you're already well acquainted with several mean-tempered gods, wounding the son of Poseidon is [[GenreBlind almost as dumb]] as killing Inigo Montoya's dad.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' has Frogs' [[ThemeMusicPowerUp heroic speech]]. "My name is Glenn! Long have I carried Cyrus's hopes and dreams, and now I bear the Masamune as well! Henceforth, I claim them as my own! I shall slay the Fiendlord Magus and restore our honor!"
* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'': "My name is Master Aqua. ''[[BadassBoast Now return my friend's heart or pay the price!]]''"
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has countless great moments, but a great MomentOfAwesome is in the third game when Wrex leads the Krogans to take back the nuclear wastelands of their DeathWorld Tuchanka from the [[EldritchAbomination Reapers]], just after [[spoiler:they got a cure for the [[DyingRace disease that drove them to the brink of extinction]]]]:
--> '''[[PreAsskickingOneLiner "I AM URDNOT WREX, AND THIS IS MY PLANET!!!"]]'''

-->'''Hakumen:''' I am the white void. I am the cold steel. I am the just sword. With blade in hand shall I reap the sins of this world, and cleanse it in the fires of destruction. I am Hakumen! ''The end has come!''
* Used by Viktor Reznov in ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' during the Rebirth Island Mission when you break into Friedrich Steiner's Lab. [[spoiler:[[TheReveal Only]], [[TomatoInTheMirror it's not Reznov who said it]], [[BrainwashedAndCrazy but Mason]].]]
-->'''Reznov: '''My name is Viktor Reznov. AND I WILL HAVE. MY. REVENGE!!''
* Assassin in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' introduces himself formally on initiating a duel, though he doesn't insist Saber identify herself.
* In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', anyone who's about to be on the receiving end of Sanger's BFS will at least get to know that "I am Sanger Zonvolt, the sword that cleaves evil!" Wodan Ymir does pretty much the same thing.
* Sir Ano does this in one of the Oaklore quests in ''VideoGame/DragonFable''.
-->'''Sir Ano:''' My name is Sir Ano de Berg'rac. You're planning to kidnap my princess. Prepare to die.
* Ezio in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' after he [[spoiler:stabs Uberto Alberti to death: "The Auditore are not dead! I'm still here! ME! Ezio! Ezio Auditore!"]]

* [[VideoGame/DwarfFortress Dwarf Fortess]] does this in Adventure Mode with anyone you can talk to, especially the ones you've been sent to kill. Speeches typically have their name, relation to other histrorical figures, kill list, and then the obligatory "prepare to die" if they're trying to kill you.
* ''VideoGame/{{Gruntz}}'': when a grunt carries a sword and is forced to walk around non-stop for longer periods of time, you can hear him saying this: "My name is Grunt Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!"
* From ''Videogame/{{Xenoblade}}'', [[MemeticBadass Dunban]] says sometimes the following in battle :
-->'''Dunban:''' I am Dunban! Attack me, if you dare!

* Inverted in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' Episode 6; when Erika delivers her dramatic introduction to [[AwesomeMusic/WhenTheyCry Crowning Music]], the battle is already over, she's lost badly and is prepared to die. She uses a similar line as a straight example for an intro in ''Ougon Musou''.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Played with straight in this [[http://www.lastres0rt.com/2009/05/well-whatdya-know-hes-got-a-spine-after-all/comment-page-1/#comment-584 this]] page of ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt''.
* Yokyok in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0348.html this strip]] of ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', parodying the [[TropeNamers Trope Namer]].
* BobAndGeorge "[[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/040914c My name is Mega Man! You killed my dog! Prepare to die!]]"

* ''{{Drowtales}}'' has [[RichBitch Yami'ni]] [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=8577 pull this]] after breaking through some {{brainwashing}} by [[{{Determinator}} sheer willpower]]. [[spoiler:Unfortunately for her her treacherous cousin was right behind her and stabbed her InTheBack]].
* [[QuestionableContent My name is Hannelore Ellicott-Chatham]]. '''[[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1416 I end messes.]]'''

-->[[spoiler:DIRK]]: I am [[spoiler:Brain Ghost Dirk]].
-->[[spoiler:DIRK]]: You kissed my boyfriend.
-->[[spoiler:DIRK]]: Prepare to die.
** What makes this so perfect is that since he's basically [[spoiler: Jake's idealized belief in Dirk]], it makes complete sense for him to be quoting an old film.

* A running gag in Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses' third anniversary special, ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'', features [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]], dressed as Inigo Montoya and repeatedly getting the line wrong.
-->'''Joe:''' MY NAME IS INIGO MONTOYA, [[PrecisionFStrike MOTHERFUCKER!]]\\
'''Joe:''' Allo. My name, is Amigo Toyota. (everyone sighs) Whatever! YouKilledMyFather, PrepareToDie!
* The GEKICOM Elementals and the STRUQ Team in ''IlivaisX'' do this like it's required by law. They're all {{Large Ham}}s anyway. En Arteya did as well, and technically Ashe too. Justified in that otherwise we'd have no idea who they are, due to their MonsterOfTheWeek nature.
* Aeofel does this constantly in [[WebOriginal/AcquisitionsIncorporated Penny Arcade's D&D Podcast]] when he swears Oath of Eminity. Which he does ''a lot''.

* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'': Said by [[spoiler: Kevin]]. "My name is [[spoiler: Kevin Ethan Levin.]] You killed my father. Prepare to die."

** WordOfGod says that Kevin's mom actually read ''The Princess Bride'' to him when he was little.
