->'''Nicholas''': I may not be a man of God, [[TheVicar Reverend,]] but [[KirkSummation I know right, and I know wrong, and I have the good grace to know which is which.]]
->'''Reverend Shooter''': [[PrecisionFStrike Oh fuck off]], grasshopper!
-->-- ''Film/HotFuzz''

So TheHero has finally penetrated the BigBad's fortress, defeated his {{Mooks}}, made his DynamicEntry into the inner sanctum, and the final confrontation is about to begin. Of course, being TheHero, he [[KirkSummation sums up all that is wrong about what the villain is doing and offers him one last chance to cease his evil-doing and repent.]] The villain, of course, will have none of it, and rather than wasting time with WeCanRuleTogether and the like, gives a resounding "Shut Up Kirk!" and the battle is joined.

The KirkSummation equivalent of ShutUpHannibal, Shut Up Kirk is when the villain/antagonist on the receiving end of TheSummation ([[KirkSummation Kirk or otherwise]]), PatrickStewartSpeech, [[WorldofCardboardSpeech or some other goody-goody life affirming lecture]] rejects what the hero has said and reaffirms his motives and actions. When the hero spells out how his plan to destroy all life on the planet is wrong, the villain usually will respond with this trope with something like "They don't deserve to live!" or "Silence! How dare you question my judgment?" or "[[WhatTheHellHero What gives you the moral authority to condemn me?]] [[NotSoDifferent You're just the same!]]" or "Fool, [[SocialDarwinist only those with strength such as mine are fit to survive!]]"

There are even some cases where the villain will ''deny'' the charges against him and will instead take this opportunity [[TheReveal to reveal completely different (but equally villainous) motives]]:
->'''TheKirk:''' Spreading TheVirus across the planet to kill 90% of humanity won't help save the planet from ecological disaster! Humans are part of nature, too! And if we all work together, we can still stop the pollution, and...\\
'''The Villain:''' [[MotiveMisidentification What are you talking about]]? I was just going to spread the virus so that my Evil Incorporate would be able to sell the vaccine -- and name our own price! That whole "save the planet" line [[StrawHypocrite was just something]] I fed those silly eco-terrorists so they'd [[UnwittingPawn work for me for free]].\\
'''TheKirk:''' Oh... well... [[AndThatsTerrible well, that's bad too!]]

Then again, the antagonist may reject the last chance offered him and order TheHero [[StrikeMeDown to kill him]], especially if the hero's a WorthyOpponent.

Of course, the ShutUpKirk need not be verbal; the NoNonsenseNemesis can just as well respond by [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim shooting]] TheHero [[BoomHeadshot point blank]] to shut him up, or [[TalkToTheFist some variation thereof]].

Pretty much a staple when it comes to final showdowns, and can often double as a PreAsskickingOneLiner. Compare SedgwickSpeech, TalkToTheFist.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'', BigBad [[spoiler: Miyo Takano]] shoots Keiichi point blank during his KirkSummation to shut him up. It's a bit [[GroundhogDayLoop complicated]] how only the identity of the villain is a spoiler.
* When, Johnathan, Zeppeli, and Speedwagon confront the vampire Dio in [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Part 1]], Zeppeli notices Dio has healed his wounds from his previous fight with Johnathan and asks him how many lives he's "sucked away" to heal his wounds. Dio coolly asks Zeppeli if he remembers [[MemeticMutation how many breads he's eaten in a day]]. In Part II, the Caesar swears revenge after Whamuu casually kills his friend [[TheAssimilator by walking into him]] while not even noticing him. The Pillarmen start laughing, remarking that this is hardly the first time someone swore revenge against them.
* In ''PokemonSpecial'', a pissed off Cyrus tells Dia that a stupid kid could never understand the concepts of time and space. Dia responds with a small but heartfelt speech about what time and space mean to him. Cyrus doesn't like Dia's answer (not to mention pissed that Dialga and Palkia seem to like the kid's answer over his), so he smacks the boy across the face with the Red Chain.
** From ''PokemonTheFirstMovie'', Pikachu tries to convince Mewtwo that Ash views him (Pikachu) as a friend, not a slave. Mewtwo is not convinced and hurls him against Ash.
* Wrath/[[spoiler:Fuhrer Bradley]] of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' gives one of these as he lies dying and Lan Fan asks if he has any dying words. He dies content with the life he had led, no matter how horrid his enemies found it.
** Kimblee has his moment of this too, listening to Al's declaration that he will TakeAThirdOption that will allow them to save everyone and regain their bodies. Kimblee then reasons there must exist a fourth option where both brothers fail completely.
* In ''{{Bakuman}}'', after [[spoiler:Nanamine]] outlines his plan, Mashiro and Takagi disapprove of it. He then says he's disappointed because he thought they would understand, and they respond by saying that ''they're'' disappointed that he would waste his talent and throw away his pride. [[spoiler:Nanamine]] then says that professionals do whatever it takes to succeed, and anyone whose pride comes before that has yet to learn what it takes to be a professional.
* In ''{{Bokurano}}'', the following exchange occurs when Chizu, [[spoiler:who knows she and her baby are going to die after her battle]], since she's Zearth's pilot, starts firing Zearth's lasers to take revenge on [[spoiler:the men who raped her]], causing collateral damage.
-->'''Tanaka''': [[WhatTheHellHero What makes you think this is even remotely acceptable]]? We live under a constitutional government to prevent that from happening!
-->'''Chizu''': Constitutional government? Then go ahead and make a world with a perfect government. However, [[spoiler:I don't have the time to wait for that to happen]].
* In ''MuhyoAndRoji'', after Page angrily tells Enchu that Yoichi, whom he had looked at dismissively, had gone to great lengths to bring Enchu back, and implies that he himself feels somewhat responsible, Enchu responds by saying "You talk too much, as always."
* In ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'', when [[JerkAss Erika]] shows up to mock Miho, who was her teammate and predecessor as vice-captain before she switched schools, Miho's friends step up to defend her.
-->'''Yukari''': [[WithDueRespect If I may say something]], I don't think Miho-san's decision was incorrect in the match we had.
-->'''Erika''': I think someone needs to mind their own business.
-->'''Yukari''': ''(chastened)'' I'm sorry.
** In the ''Little Army'' manga, when Miho asks her mother if [[spoiler:it was necessary for Maho to shoot the enemy's flag tank when it went to rescue one of her team's tanks]], she gets this response.
-->'''Shiho''': What a foolish question. For one who carries the name of the Nishizumi family to say such a foolish thing... it's plainly embarrassing.
** Anchovy, after losing to Miho, accuses her of having thrown away victory in the last tournament. Miho responds by saying that there are more important things to her than victory. Anchovy begins to walk away, but pauses to tell Miho that she thinks that the commander of a team has a responsibility to her subordinates to win, especially for Miho, who says she values her comrades. Anchovy [[JerkassHasApoint ends up being vindicated]] in the next round, in which [[spoiler:Miho learns that if she loses, she will be disinherited and her school will be shut down]].
* ''Manga/RurouniKenshin''. Kenshin's always being mocked for being a TechnicalPacifist, but the hardest burn comes in the form of Saitou, who visited the house where he was living in his civilian identity as a police officer while Kenshin was out and waited for Kenshin to come back, all to point out that he could have slaughtered everyone there if he felt like it and Kenshin wouldn't have been able to stop him.
* In ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', Chrono confronts [[spoiler:Admiral Graham and his familiars]] regarding their plan to deal with the Book of Darkness by sealing away its master for eternity, and says that because the master is innocent of any wrongdoing, it's illegal. [[spoiler:Aria]] then launches into a tirade about how following the law only led to many victims being created, among them Chrono's father, although [[spoiler:Graham]], [[EvenEvilHasStandards apparently not caring for her doing so]], silences her.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* A non-villainous example in the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' fic ''Fullmetal Bitch''. A 22 year old Toph refuses to train Aang who then calls her a coward for refusing to help fight the Fire Nation. Toph responds by taking off her shirt and showing all the scars she earned fighting on the wall of Ba Sing Se, ending it with, "I fought the Fire Nation for four years; [[ArmorPiercingQuestion where were you during all that time?]]"
* In ''Fanfic/PerfectionIsOverrated'', when confronted by [[TheFundamentalist Shizune Otonashi]], [[TokenReligiousTeammate Yukariko]] tells her that she's nothing but a murderer and a false Christian. Shizune retorts by saying that in her view, Yukariko is the false Christian.
** When confronting [[spoiler:Bachiko and Meiko]] regarding their plan to [[spoiler:alter everyone's personalities and relationships as they please]], Mai calls them out on their plan not respecting people's right to make their own decisions, to which [[spoiler:Bachiko]] responds that they cannot be trusted to make these decisions on their own.
* In ''Fanfic/ThePrayerWarriors'', when Jerry confronts Books, [[TakeThatCritics a representation of one of his critics]], this exchange happens. Jerry concludes that Books is "an idiot only suited to telling lies and killing innocent Christians".
-->'''Jerry''': "Jesses Christ is my saviour. HE will pretext me in my lime of need. Where is your false gods now? I know perfumery well that your gods is not real but is a lie created by Stalin (which s secretly demon processed by the Satan, the worse demon of them all! And he is not a god!)"
-->'''Books''': "Laugh out loud."
** Earlier on, when Jerry first tries to convert PercyJackson, he gets this response.
-->'''Percy''': No I will never. I will always fool you by worshiping a false set of gods, Zeus the bastard king, and will secret preying to the lord of the darkness, Satan himself,"
** Annabeth tries this on Jerry at one point, saying ""Those ways are old and tired. Our way is much better", but he responds with "[[ShutUpHannibal But at least our way works]]! [[PreMortemOneLiner Amen]]" before killing her.
** When Jerry prays to God for forgiveness for killing the "[[DemonicPosession demon]] [[RougeAnglesOfSatin processed]]" Grover, Stalin tells him "Pray as much as you want, your God will not save you."
* ''FanFic/FriendshipIsAura'': When offering her a LastSecondChance, Lucario tells [[spoiler: Chrysalis]] that her subjects love her, meaning she doesn't need to [[spoiler: forcibly take it from anyone]]. She responds by [[DevourTheDragon absorbing said subjects]] and trying one last time to kill him.
* ''FanFic/TheImmortalGame'': [[BigBad Titan]] repeatedly shoots down Twilight's attempts to [[BreakThemByTalking verbally break him]] during their FinalBattle, until she finally manages to get through to him at the last minute [[spoiler: allowing her to [[BroughtDownToNormal drain his power]] and kill him]].
* In ''Fanfic/BoysDoTankary'', Vincent, after telling Maho she knows nothing about true family because she pushed Miho away, [[spoiler:not realizing that Maho does, in fact, love Miho]], Maho contemptuously replies “Family. This coming from a guy who has no family”. Vincent is unfazed, though, and [[ShutUpHannibal tells Maho that]] [[TrueCompanions he considers the Oarai crew and his platoon his family]].
* In ''Fanfic/BoysUndSenshado'' (found [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9332528/7/Boys-und-Sensha-d%C5%8D here]]), after Shiho [[spoiler:disowns Miho]], Akio tells Shiho that Miho is far more talented than Shiho realizes, and that Sensha-do is about friendship and camaraderie, not just victory. Shiho responds by saying "That is not what Sensha-do is about, little boy!"
* ''Fanfic.TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'':
** When Celestia angrily calls Discord out on how his vision of chaos caused untold amounts of pain and damage to the ponies and Equestria, Discord retorts that her "harmony" has caused its own damage by causing pony civilization to become [[MedievalStasis stagnant]] and the ponies themselves complacent.
** In chapter 15 when Luna calls Spykoran a murderer for [[spoiler:destroying Dream Valley, Discord]] reminds her that she herself would have killed the world as Nightmare Moon.
* In ''Fanfic/FrozenHearts'', during an argument between Hans' brothers regarding Hans, [[NiceGuy Heins]] tries to remind [[BigBrotherBully Harald]] of what makes a prince.
-->'''Heins''': He's our brother, Harald! Our brother! And I, for one, love him! Have you all forgotten what makes a prince? [[BadassCreed A prince forgets trespasses! He forgives! He sacrifices! He is compassionate!]]
-->'''Harald''': Don't recite those time-old rhymes to me! God knows we spent half our childhoods reciting them back to the king whenever he asked like a bunch of trained parrots!
* In ''Fanfic/SystemRestore'', Monobear does this at the end of the first trial, after a speech describing what could have been done to prevent the murder.
-->'''Monobear''': “Ugh! Why do you keep assaulting my ears with all these speeches speeches speeches speeches! It’s as if you actually think you’re an important character or talent or human being! Nope, I’m done, I’ve decided. Done listening to people who think they’re in charge. I think it’s time I showed you bastards who really was.”
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Done gloriously in ''HotFuzz''.
-->'''Reverend Shooter:''' Stop! Please stop this ''mindless'' violence! Nicholas, I know that you're not a man of God, but ''surely'' you're a man of ''peace''.\\
'''Nicholas Angel:''' I may not be a man of God, Reverend. But I know right, and I know wrong. And I have the good grace to know which is which.\\
'''Reverend Shooter:''' Oh, fuck off, grasshopper. ''(draws two guns and shoots at him)''
* Another great moment from ''GangsOfNewYork'':
-->'''Monk:''' Citizens of the Five Points! Mr. Bill Cutting is attempting to draw me into an argument that would no doubt end in bloodshed and the compromising of my office! What do ya think? Should I engage and silence this relic of the ancient law? Or shall I be your chosen voice, in a new testament, in the New World! ''(a long pause)'' There you are, Bill. The people have spoken: the very notion of violent reprisal benumbs them. Come on up; let's see if we can resolve our differences the democratic way.\\
''(Bill begins climbing the hill towards the barbershop, and Monk turns his back to enter; a split second later, Bill's cleaver lands square in Monk's back; he goes crashing to the ground, dropping his club in the process)''\\
'''Bill:''' That, my friends, is the minority vote. ''(to Monk)'' Now you've tasted my mutton, how d'you like it, huh? Look. I want you to see this...\\
''(he takes up Monk's club, carves another notch into it and shows it to him)''\\
'''Bill:''' This is ''you,'' right here: notch forty-five, you Irish bog bastard.\\
''(he brings the club down on Monk's head with a sickening thud)''
* Magneto delivers a very effective one to Xavier at the climax of ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. It probably didn't help that Xavier tried to finish off his speech by invoking the [[JustFollowingOrders Nuremberg Defence]] on a Holocaust survivor.
-->'''Charles Xavier:''' There are ''thousands'' of men on those ships! Good, honest, ''innocent'' men! They're just following orders!\\
'''Magneto:''' '([[BerserkButton frowns and turns]])'' "I've been at the mercy of [[ThoseWackyNazis men "just following orders".]] Never again.
* ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry''. Azetbur gives a ShutUpKirk speech to... Chekov.
-->'''Chekov:''' We do believe all planets have a sovereign claim to inalienable human rights.
-->'''Azetbur:''' ''Inalien''... If only you could hear yourselves? ''Human'' rights. Why the very name is racist. [[HumansAreBastards The Federation is no more than a 'homo sapiens' only club.]]
** A more literal example in the 2009 ''{{Film/Star Trek}}'', Kirk is trying to drive Spock into a blind rage to prove he is [[NotSoStoic emotionally compromised]] by talking trash about his [[spoiler: recently deceased]] mother. Spock, in the ensuing beat-down, grabs Kirk by the throat and slams him down onto a console.
* Ivan Ooze reacts this way to Zordon in ''Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie'' (complaining that "I've only been outta the egg fifteen minutes, and I've already gotta listed to one of your speeches."), ironically right before he goes into a [[LargeHam rather long rant]] of his own.
* ''Film/StarTrekGenerations''. Picard tries to convince Dr. Soran not to destroy Veridian Three.
-->'''Picard''': What you're doing is just as bad as when the Borg destroyed your world. They killed millions, too. Including your wife and children.
-->'''Soran''': Nice try. There was a time when I wouldn't hurt a fly. Then the Borg came. They showed me that there is one constant in this universe ... death. We're all going to die sometime. It's just a question of how and when.
* ''Film/TheChroniclesOfRiddick'': The Lord Marshal does this to an outspoken prisoner trying to rally the others against conversion by ''ripping out his opposition's soul''. Considering that Helion's essentially a religion melting pot world, this is actually the perfect way to get to them.
* In ''Film/{{Dragonheart}}'', Bowen hunted dragons because he mistakenly believed being given a dragon's heart corrupted [[EvilPrince Einon]]. When they clash for the first time, Bowen begs Einon to remember the Old Code. Einon's response makes it painfully clear to Bowen that Einon was EvilAllAlong.
-->'''Bowen:''' But... you spoke the words...
-->'''Einon:''' I vomited them up because I couldn't stomach them! Because I knew it was what you wanted to hear!
* In ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'', the Judge walks in on his ward Johanna (for whom he is harbouring a paedophilic crush) packing to elope with her lover Anthony. Knowing she's been caught, Johanna nevertheless tells him contemptuously that "a gentleman knocks before entering a lady's room". His response?
--> '''Turpin:''' Indeed he does, ''but I see no lady''.
* In ''{{Film/Lincoln}}'', the amendment is passed and Lincoln finally sits down with the Confederate delegation to discuss terms of surrender. Confident he can talk them into rejoining the union, he starts talking about individual freedoms:
-->'''Abraham Lincoln:''' Slavery, sir, it's done. If we submit ourselves to law, Alex, even submit to losing freedoms — the freedom to oppress, for instance — we may discover other freedoms previously unknown to us. Had you kept faith with democratic process, as frustrating as that can be—
-->'''John Campbell:''' Come, sir, spare us ''at least'' these pieties. Did you defeat us with ballots?!
-->'''Alexander Stephens:''' How have you held your union together? Through ''democracy''? How many hundreds of thousands have died during your administration? Your Union, sir, is bonded in cannon fire and death.

[[folder:Literature]]
* OlderThanPrint: In the 11th century ''[[Literature/TheSongOfRoland Chanson de Roland]]'', Charlemagne calls on the Pagan leader Baligant to repent and be baptized, and then the Emperor his "first friend will be." Baligant tells him, "Your sermon's but ill preached." Of course, the medieval belief that being non-Christian necessarily makes Baligant the villain of the piece hits modern ValuesDissonance.
* ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour''
** Done by O'Brien to Winston. When torturing Winston at the end, O'Brien asks why the Party goes to the lengths it does to keep power. Winston says that it's for the good of the people. O'Brien rebukes him and tells him flat out, the Party seeks and keeps power for power's sake.
** There's also the part where Winston says that the party would never strip him of his humanity and moral superiority. What O'Brien does is play a tape of the night when Winston and Julia [[NotSoDifferent vowed to commit hideous crimes for the Brotherhood's sake]].
* ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'' has Harry ''warn'' Voldemort that he's about to be HoistByHisOwnPetard. [[TooDumbToLive Voldemort naturally refuses to listens to anything Harry has to say]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': A good example can be found, appropriately enough, in the page quote for KirkSummation, with TheMaster's reply to the Doctor's:
-->'''The Doctor:''' You want dominion over the living, but all you do is kill.\\
'''The Master:''' Life is wasted on the living!
** Also done by [[MagnificentBastard Count Scarlioni]] in "City of Death".
-->'''Doctor:''' Count, do you realize what would happen if you try to go back to a time before history began?\\
'''Scarlioni:''' Yes, yes I do. ''And I don't care one jot.''
** And done by Davros in "Genesis of the Daleks":
-->'''The Doctor''': Davros, if you had created a virus in your laboratory, something contagious and infectious that killed on contact, a virus that would destroy all other forms of life; would you allow its use?\\
'''Davros''': It is an interesting conjecture.\\
'''The Doctor''': Would you do it?\\
'''Davros''': The only living thing... The microscopic organism... reigning supreme... A fascinating idea.\\
'''The Doctor''': But would you do it?\\
'''Davros''': Yes; yes. To hold in my hand, a capsule that contained such power. To know that life and death on such a scale was my choice. To know that the tiny pressure on my thumb, enough to break the glass, would end everything. Yes! I would do it! That power would set me up above the gods! ''And through the Daleks I shall have that power!''
* ''Franchise/StarTrek'': [[HiveMind The Borg]] have a tendency to do this, deeming pretty much anything that opposes them and their philosophy "irrelevant" out of hand. Though they never got to tell it to Kirk, ironically.
** Kirk is irrelevant. You will be assimilated.
** [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Q]] does perhaps the pithiest version of this ever in "Q Who?", when Riker takes him to task for throwing them to the Borg: "Oh, ''please''."
*** An even better example from ''Q Who'':
---->'''Picard:''' I understand what you've done here, Q. But I think the lesson could have been learned without the loss of 18 members of my crew.
---->'''Q:''' ''(darkly)'' If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid.
** In the ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode "Waltz", Sisko spends much of the episode [[BreakTheHaughty trying to crush Dukat's will]], but eventually Dukat bites back hard.
-->'''Dukat:''' [[SarcasmMode Behold... Benjamin Sisko: supreme arbiter of right and wrong in the universe.]]
* In the series finale of ''Series/{{Angel}}'':
-->'''Angel''': People who don't care about anything will [[EvilCannotComprehendGood never understand the people who do.]]\\
'''Hamilton''': Yeah, but ''we won't care''.
* In the ''Series/BabylonFive'' episode "Comes the Inquisitor". After a lengthy questioning/torture/[[spoiler: SecretTestOfCharacter]] by the eponymous inquisitor, his interviewee Delenn decides to feed him some of his own medicine and deconstruct his cruel and nihilistic performance. It doesn't come out too well (or perhaps it ''does'' come out too well, it's just that he is not inclined to allow it to pass).
--> '''Delenn:''' You are a creature who has received pain and given pain, and taken too much joy in its application. You have aspired to dreams and been disappointed because you are not strong enough, or worthy enough, or righteous enough, so you lash out at anyone who believes they can make a difference, because it reminds you of your own failure. You have to prove they're just as bad, just as flawed as you are. Am I close, Mr. Sebastian?
--> '''Inquisitor''' [hits his MagiTech cane on the floor, electrocuting Delenn]: Bang!
* ''Series/{{JAG}}'': In "Scimitar", Lt. Dumai tells off Lt. Austin for her attitude towards Iraqi gender attitudes:
-->'''Lt. Dumai''': Your country is like a child who has learned nothing yet thinks it knows everything. Let your civilization survive its first thousand years; then perhaps we'll begin to listen.
* In the season 2 finale of ''Series/OnceUponATime'' Regina admits her plan was to use a bean to transport herself and Henry back to the Enchanted Forest, while leaving behind a trigger to kill everyone else. Prince Charming starts to get righteously indignant, only for Regina to blow him off, pointing out (1) ''their'' plan was to use the bean to travel back to the Enchanted Forest and leave her behind anyway, and (2) they have much more pressing matters. Namely someone else has both, and is planning on using the trigger to kill everyone.

[[folder:Mythology and Religion]]
* In ''Literature/TheBible'', John 9, the Pharisees excommunicate a man healed of blindness by Jesus for daring to question them.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar: Dark Crusade''. A fantastic exchange between Tau leader Shas O'Kais and SpaceMarine leader Force Commander Davian Thule. Of course, since the setting runs on BlackAndGreyMorality, and both the Tau Empire and the Imperium are firmly in the grey portion, who exactly is a hero and a villain here is up to the player.
-->'''Kais;''': Do the deaths of your soldiers mean so little to you? Are you that mad?
-->'''Thule''': Do the deaths of yours mean so much to you, alien? Are you that ''weak''?
* ''GrimFandango''. In a moment that subverts JustBetweenYouAndMe, BondVillainStupidity and WhyDontYouJustShootHim:
-->'''Manny:''' Is this where you tell me all about your secret plan, Hector? How you stole Double N tickets from innocent souls, pretended to sell them but secretly hoarded them all to yourself in a desperate attempt to get out of the Land of the Dead?
-->'''Hector:''' No.
-->'''''(BLAM!)'''''
-->'''Hector:''' This is where you writhe around in excruciating pain because that ''idiot'' Bowsley ran off with the quick-acting sproutella. This slow stuff ''will'' sprout you, but it'll take a ''long'' time, I'm sorry to say.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''
** Kefka, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', gives a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny priceless]] one when faced with the heroes' WorldOfCardboardSpeech before the final battle.
-->'''Kefka:''' Sickening! You all sound like chapters from a SELF-HELP BOOKLET!
** He does it again in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', casually brushing off Terra's assertion that the meaning of existence can be found when one has something to protect:
--->'''Kefka:''' Meaning, schmeaning. This whole world's going bye-bye, you included!
** Garland brings up a similar rebuttal in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' when confronted by Zidane and three other party members at the end of disc three; after listening to them explain how they're better than him and how they know more than him ([[MeaninglessMeaningfulWords sometimes using arguments which don't apply to him in any way, shape or form]]) Garland challenges them to actually demonstrate their superiority.
---> Lecture me again when you are on the verge of death!
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'': Just about everyone in the CrapsackWorld that is Ivalice have accepted the status quo and just want to be at the top of the heap. For daring to express a different opinion, Ramza is called variants of naive and foolish. (For example, in the battle against [[spoiler: Gafgarion]] when he makes his FaceHeelTurn, one of the things he can say to Ramza is: "Stop being such a child!") This rarely helps, as Ramza ends up killing most of them. And most of the rest end up being killed by the scheming Delita instead.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect''. Don't complain to Executor Pallin that humans, whom he thinks are becoming too powerful too quickly, have to fight for everything they need.
-->'''Pallin:''' Then fight for it, but don't expect the rest of us to just sit back and let you take it.
** In the DLC ''Lair of the Shadow Broker'' [[spoiler:Asari Spectre, Tela Vasir, gives a particularly powerful one when [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] calls her out for working with the Shadow Broker. She tells Shepard that they're no better than she is when they start working for the terrorist group Cerberus.]]
--->'''[[spoiler:Tela Vasir]]:''' [[NotSoDifferent Before you start judging me, you should look in the mirror.]]
*** That instance of this trope became even more powerful with [[spoiler:The Arrival DLC.]]
*** This may fall flat for some players however, given that [[spoiler:the series forces you to work for Cerberus even though it has beforehand characterized them as mustache-twirlingly evil and moronic chuckleheads to boot. If you already resented the game for not letting you take another option, like trying to go back to the Alliance, Vasir throwing it in your face is just adding insult to injury. Also, you know that you are working with evil for a greater good, but cannot be certain this is true of Vasir - so she may have a point, but she might not, diminishing the impact of her statement.]]
* The first ''VideoGame/VandalHearts'' game gave us this memorable exchange, complete with the BigBad calling the hero out on his MoralDissonance.
-->'''[[TheHero Ash]]:''' [[PatrickStewartSpeech You're wrong! Though this world may be wicked, life itself is precious! Good and evil, love and hate. Each man contains the potential for both. You would exterminate mankind for their sins? I would fight the gods themselves to save them!]]\\
'''[[OmnicidalManiac Dolf]]:''' Sanctimonious whelp! [[NotSoDifferent How many souls have you yourself released from their corporeal bondage?]]
* Done amusingly in the first ''BaldursGate''. Having defeated a group of evil cultists, you burst in to try and stop their leader from summoning a demon, at which point this exchange can take place:
-->'''[[HelloInsertNameHere Charname]]:''' By all that is right and holy, you will not succeed!\\
'''Cult Leader:''' By all that is loud and windy, will you please ''shut up''!
** The player character also has the option to respond to nearly every attempt to appeal to their better nature or call them out on the deaths they've caused with a response of this sort.
* In the original ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank2002 Ratchet & Clank]]'', Clank is telling [[BigBad Chairman Drek]] that he does not have to go about destroying other planets in order to save the Blarg's. Drek laughs it off, revealing [[spoiler:that he was going to pollute his people's next planet and so-on because [[{{Greed}} they pay him to do so]].]]
* From ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'', Dracula responds to Richter's ShutUpHannibal with this:
-->'''Dracula:''' What is a man?! A miserable little pile of secrets! But enough talk, have at you!
* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', Lloyd tries to convince Yggdrasil to give up his insane scheme, but Yggdrasil simply spits back that Lloyd, as a human, has no right to tell him what's right or wrong after everything humanity has done to both himself and his people (half elves).
** During the final confrontation with the BigBad, the various party members take turns telling him where he's gone wrong and how he's wrong about people's nature. The BigBad gets off a "Don't make me laugh" when Lloyd tries to convince him that his people can live anywhere they like, and after Lloyd tells him that they should live in the open if they aren't doing anything wrong, [[MotiveRant says his plan is precisely because they couldn't do just that]]. After a few more speeches, capped off by Colette saying that the BigBad has the goddess known as conscience in his heart, he says "Do you think I'm going to beg for forgiveness? Ridiculous!" and attacks the party.
** In the sequel, during the final battle, Marta and Emil try to convince [[spoiler:Richter]] that [[spoiler:Aster wouldn't want to come back to life in a world ruled by demons. (Richter's plan was to create permanent link to the demon world in order to revive Aster)]]. [[spoiler:Richter]] sharply retorts that his methods are his own business and he doesn't need other people telling him what he should and should not do, especially not [[spoiler:a terrorist's daughter and the demon who originally slew Aster and ''took his form to mock him''.]]
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', [[spoiler:during the final confrontation with the Qunari Arishok, Hawke can call him out for being willing to start a bloody and ultimately pointless war purely out of principle. The Arishok simply calmly replies that [[BlueAndOrangeMorality principle is exactly what defines a Qunari]].]]
* Travis Touchdown of ''NoMoreHeroes'' is on the receiving end of this just before his fight with Bad Girl:
-->'''Travis:''' You're no assassin. You're just a perverted killing maniac.
-->'''Bad Girl:''' [[NotSoDifferent In essence, they're the same.]] Don't go on thinking you're better than me. You think you're hot shit! Who the fuck do you think you are?!
* This happens in ''StarWars: TheForceUnleashed II'':
-->'''Starkiller''': (''on [[LoveInterest Juno Eclipse]]'s death'') You've taken everything from me!
-->'''Darth Vader''': Your feelings for her are not real.
* During ''SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'', the assembled heroes attempt to deliver a speech on unification, hope and justice to a villain who is trying to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the world]], and even offer a LastSecondChance [[spoiler:which you can't take even if you choose the option indicating you are willing. And if you choose to take the other option:]] The response?
-->'''The Devourlord:''' [[ForTheEvulz Screw you, this is fun]].
* Both [[spoiler:Selbium]] and [[spoiler:Lobelia]] pull these when the good guys try to talk them down in ''VideoGame/DuelSaviorDestiny''. The latter is to be expected, but [[spoiler:Selbium]] is normally not a villainous figure and so the refusal to listen seems quite jarring, especially considering the overall outcome.
* In ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyJusticeForAll'', [[spoiler:Matt Engarde]] gets quite a few of these when he's revealed as the mastermind behind case 2-4 to a horrified Phoenix and Pearl.
-->'''Pearl''': Why would you do something so wrong...?
-->'''[[spoiler:Engarde]]''': Because I'm a grown-up, and I can. Good enough of an answer for you, little girl?
* In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Pokemon: Platinum]]'', after the player character quiets Giratina, Cyrus asks them what was important enough for them to stop him from destroying reality, and immediately screams that he won't accept such a deluded answer... even though the player character ''[[SilentProtagonist didn't say anything]]''.
* [[AbusiveParents Jigoro Hakamichi]] of ''KatawaShoujo'' likes giving out these, such as when he responds to Hisao's asking why he doesn't just visit Shizune by telling Hisao that he doesn't understand him, and [[ArmorPiercingQuestion asking him when he last called his parents]].
* In ''VideoGame/ShinSuperRobotWars'', Londo Bell receives an unexpected communiqué from, of all people, the Neo Zeon - in particular, from [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char Aznable]]! Gomez takes the call, asking whether the rumors of Char's turning traitor on mankind are true. Char allows that he's aiding the aliens, but says that he hasn't sold out humanity. Romelo doesn't buy that, but Char asks the Londo Bell what they think awaits at the end of this fight. After all, the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ze Balmary Empire]] possesses such incredible technology that they've been able to come all this way just to take over the Earth. He figures that Londo Bell's foolish resistance is only going to enrage the more, which is why [[TheQuisling Neo Zeon jumped at the chance to help the Balmarians]], as the one and only means to ensure a future for mankind. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Amuro Ray]] [[ShutUpHannibal interjects and tells Char to shut up]]. Amuro points out how Char loves to prattle on about justice based solely on his own narrow views. He asks what value a peace founded on the sacrifice of numerous human lives could have, and challenges Char to stop treating other people's lives like toys for once. Char thinks Amuro is full of it, claiming that mankind's history shows that [[BlindObedience people are happiest when ruled]] by the [[MightMakesRight strongest leader]]. He thinks Amuro is incapable of grasping the larger picture, accusing him of myopically leading people even deeper into danger and then having the gall to question his lofty perspective. Amuro fires back that capitulating to the aliens and therefore making human kill human cannot be correct. Char asks whether Amuro thinks that fighting until no one is left can really make mankind happy, and Amuro points out that mankind's defeat is not yet a foregone conclusion. [[Anime/MazingerZ Kouji Kabuto]] finally interrupts, pointing out that there's no way to know that until they try. [[Anime/{{Dancougar}} Shinobu Fujiwara]] goes further, angry beyond measure at people like Char who debate outcomes without lifting a finger on their own. Char figures that there's no common ground between Londo Bell, and informs them that he'll show them no mercy, which is just fine with Shinobu.
* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' at the end of Wrathion's questline, an innkeeper berates Wrathion for missing the lessons of Pandaria due to his certainty in his own plans. Wrathion calls him an innkeeper and leaves in a huff.

* ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' After Bob has deconstructed all Fructose Riboflavin's reasons for his crimes, Riboflavin responds, [[http://bobadventures.comicgenesis.com/d/20100914.html "YOU GET OUT OF MY HEAD!"]]
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''
** The newly lichified Xykon in the {{Prequel}} ''StartOfDarkness'' delivers a most glorious Shut Up, Kirk! to the elven druid Lirian at the climax of their battle:
-->'''Lirian:''' You may defeat me, you may even kill me, but you will never succeed in releasing the Snarl.\\
'''Xykon:''' Blah blah blah evil will never win blah blah.
** He also flirted with doing this with Roy [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0442.html in the main comic]].
--->'''Xykon:''' Well now, hold on. Is this about beating me because I'm evil and dangerous and yadda yadda yadda... or is it about beating me because Daddy will be proud of you if you do?
*** And the way Xykon actually finishes that fight probably counts as well.
* At the end of the ''SluggyFreelance'' StoryArc "[[http://sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/020716 Dangerous Days Ahead]]", [[spoiler:Cloney]] responds with one of these when Torg tries to talk her out of her [[TakeOverTheWorld plans for world domination]]. It helps that Torg ''really sucks'' at doing {{Kirk Summation}}s.
-->'''Torg:''' You've lost sight of the fact that it is our weenieness that makes us human!\\
'''[[spoiler:Cloney]] (nonhuman):''' The defense rests!\\
'''Torg:''' OK, I totally didn't think that one through.

* While the person being shut up is not exactly a hero, it may count in an episode of ''[[ImAMarvelAndImADC Happy Hour]]'' where the Joker electrocuted the Green Goblin when the latter is lecturing him on why his plan on turning every superhero DarkerAndEdgier is not a good thing.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** A rare good-guy-on-good-guy version occurs when Master Pakku is refusing to teach Katara Waterbending because she's a girl:
-->'''Katara:''' What do you mean you won't teach me? I didn't come all this way so you could tell me no!\\
'''Master Pakku:''' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny No.]]
** Also, as tensions mount, Katara drops a challenge to Pakku. After she walks outside, with Pakku following a moment after, he just brushes her off, pissing Katara off enough to whip him.
--->'''Master Pakku''': ''Fine.'' You want to learn so bad? '''''[[PreAssKickingOneLiner Study closely.]]'''''
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueCrisisOnTwoEarths'':
-->'''Batman:''' If we're really alike, you know this is wrong. You must have been a good man once.\\
'''Owlman:''' No. Not good. ''Never'' good. After all, I'm only human.
* This happens in the ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episode "Question Authority". Question goes to kill Lex Luthor to prevent him from becoming President and creating a StableTimeLoop which causes Superman and the Justice League to become totalitarians. Long story short, Luthor laughs at him, beats him up, and tells him he has no intention of being president, because his real goal is [[spoiler:to get superpowers by putting himself in another Amazo body that he designed after seeing the blueprints for the original]].
* In one episode on ''WesternAnimation/OzzyAndDrix'', the villain Stephfinger corners Ozzy in part of the lung with a gun (well, what passes for a gun in this place) Ozzy shouts at him not to fire it, because if he misses, he'll blow a hole in the fall and they'll be sucked outside (and the place they're in the equivalent of the top of a skyscraper). The villain simply says, "Well then... I'd better not miss..." before trying to shoot him anyway. [[IWarnedYou You can probably guess what happens...]]
* In the ''KimPossible'' episode "Go Team Go", Hego [[GoodIsDumb cluelessly]] assumes that [[BlackSheep Shego]] just needs a little inspiring talk to [[HiddenHeartOfGold come back to the good side]]:
-->'''Hego:''' No, I don't believe it. You may be a cranky smart mouth, prone to excessive violence, but deep down, you are still a member of Team Go... a hero.\\
'''Shego:''' Hego, I quit your stupid team years ago and after I quit, I went to work for a guy who wants to TakeOverTheWorld.\\
'''Kim:''' It's true.\\
'''Hego:''' But deep down...\\
'''Shego:''' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis I. Am. Evil.]] [[CardCarryingVillain Have I made myself clear?]]
* In ''DrawnTogether'', as Spanky comes face to face with Mickey Mouse, who is erasing politically incorrect cartoons from the past, including Foxxy, he gives a speech saying that the cartoons are part of their history, and while they are not a part that they're particularly proud of, denying them is "as dangerous as denying the Holocaust, or slavery, or [[BreadEggsMilkSquick the playful advances of your shop teacher]].
-->'''Mickey''': ''(soberly)'' Gosh, you've really given me something to think about, Spanky... ''(reverts to his typical evil and maniacal voice)'' WHILE I KILL THESE POLITICALLY INCORRECT FREAKS! [[EvilLaugh AH-HA HA HA HA]]!
* In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode [[Recap/BatmanTheAnimatedSeriesE25TheClockKing "The Clock King"]], the eponymous villain gives one to Batman after they discover that the Clock King has a MisplacedRetribution against Mayor Hill. The answer could sound crazy to a normal person, but Clock King is TheSociopath ScheduleFanatic. Being punctual is all that he cares.
-->'''Batman:''' [[KirkSummation Give it up, Fugate!]] [[ShaggyDogStory Hill committed no crime against you!]]\\
'''Temple Fugate:''' [[FelonyMisdemeanor He did worse than that!]] [[HarmonyVersusDiscipline He made me late!]]
* In the ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' series, a dialogue like this happens after Aladdin, Jasmine, and Genie are taken captive by the titanic Al-Muddie Sultan, a villain who apparently knows a lot of tricks used by humans [[spoiler:(Keep in mind, Aladdin's true intent here is [[ScheherezadeGambit to stall for time]], and it ultimately works.)]]:
-->'''Aladdin:''' Wait! Wait!
-->'''Sultan''' ''(annoyed)'' Oh, you aren't going to beg, are you? I hate begging. 'Don't eat me! Oh, don't cook me!' I swear, all you people talk about is yourselves!"
-->'''Aladdin:''' But I'm not begging! It's an honor to be consumed by such a great... personage as yourself.
-->'''Sultan''' ''(sarcastically)'': Flattery? Oh, ''that's'' novel. Stick to begging.
