%% One quote is sufficient; place additional ones on the quotes page.

A StockPhrase often directed towards a BigBad or other particularly evil character. If a character is saying this, it's a good indication that whoever the statement is directed towards has either crossed the MoralEventHorizon in the character's eyes or just so happened to press their BerserkButton. Variations exist (such as "You're a monster" or "You're rotten to the core!").

See YoureInsane for when a character is calling another crazy rather than evil. This can also lead to an InsultBackfire if a particularly wicked villain [[CardCarryingVillain takes pride in this label]].

This trope can also be used to point out how powerful the character is. Characters who possess that much power are considered monsters by others because of their immense power. Similarly, it can be used in a show of amazement when somebody does something that incredible.

In dramatic situations, this carries the same weight as the Japanese ThisIsUnforgivable. Unrelated to YouBastard, but there may be overlap if the work's being fairly {{Anvilicious}}. May be the cause or effect (but mostly cause) of a VillainousBreakdown.

This often shows up in WhatMeasureIsANonHuman scenarios, often targeted at a character who either is or is trying to be human.

Compare CompleteMonster, in which the audience feels that the character is irredeemable. Contrast with YouRebelScum, where the general populace in-story has been convinced that the protagonists are evil. See also IAmAMonster when they consider ''themselves'' to be evil or inhuman.
%% YouMonster is when characters call out other characters InUniverse.
%% CompleteMonster is when the audience finds a character to be irredeemable, heinous, unsympathetic, and without justification.


[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/BlackLagoon''. Janet Bhai is running away from gangsters, while Sister Eda is driving next to her in a car.
-->'''Sister Eda''': Do you want us to save you? Think hard. If you don't want to hand over the plates, I guess we don't have a choice. You'd better run to a mosque next time. What do you think? [snip]
-->'''Janet Bhai''': 30,000 dollars!
-->'''Sister Eda''': Rock, it's almost my bedtime. I'm going back to the church.
-->'''Janet Bhai''': You monster! 100,000!
* In the TV series of ''{{Hellsing}}'', there's this exchange:
-->'''Alexander Anderson''': You monster.
-->'''Alucard''': I get that a lot.
** Also happens quite a lot in Hellsing Ultimate.
--->'''Alucard:''' Come on, get up! Attack me! You've only suffered the loss of your legs. Summon up your familiars, transform your body, heal your severed legs and stand! The evening is still so young. Come on! Hurry, Hurry! HURRY!!! Pull yourself together, the fun has just begun. Come on, HURRY!\\
'''Luke Valentine:''' MONSTER!!!\\
'''SWAT member:''' No! You're a monster!\\
'''Alucard:''' Yes, people keep telling me that. And what does that make you who would stand against me, Soldier? A man? A dog? A monster?
* Nanoha from ''[[LyricalNanoha Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha]]'' gets this a lot.
** ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'' In the second season, it's the "[[AntiVillain villains]]" who refer to the eponymous heroine as a demon (after she shrugs off enough magical punishment to kill a lesser being 20 times over, no less). Her reaction? See that page's opening quote.
** In the third season ''Anime/StrikerS'', Dieci wonders if Nanoha is human after being quickly defeated and seeing the amount of power Nanoha had at the start of the battle -- ironic, seeing how she is one of the few mages of her level who actually ''are''.
** Signum also comments "Good grief, you monster. I thought I was going to die back there." to Nanoha in the last chapter of the ''[=StrikerS=]'' manga after their mock battle concludes in a draw. Kind of hypocritical of her, as she probably came closer to killing Nanoha with her fiery explosions.
* Played with in ''Anime/YuGiOh'', where Yugi says to Ghost Kaiba that he won't call an enemy a monster, since that would be an [[InsultToRocks insult to the game's monster cards]].
** The ''real'' Kaiba said it to Pegasus several episodes later, however. (Of course, given what [[YourSoulIsMine Pegasus had done to Mokuba]], this was not a time to make jokes.)
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Possibly the most often-quoted dialogue exchange in the saga comes from the eighth movie, ''Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan'', though it is more of a variation, wherein Broly verbally upgrades himself. To recap, the titular villain is completely curbstomping the heroes and has just roughed up Gohan, when Piccolo shows up. The dialogue is usually translated along these lines:
-->'''Broly''': So, another little bug has come to die!
-->'''Piccolo''': Hmph. Do as you like, you monster.
-->'''Broly''': A monster? No, you're wrong, I'm THE DEVIL!
** ''Anime/DragonBallKai'' has Goku say this after Krillin's death and Frieza's subsequent threat:
-->'''Frieza''': *laughs* I think the brat should go next.
-->'''Goku''': Y-you ruthless... heartless... '''[[PrecisionFStrike BASTARD]]! I WILL... MAKE YOU... SUFFER!'''
** And in ''WebVideo/DragonballZAbridged'':
-->'''Namekian''': You insane bastard!
-->'''Freeza''': [[Quotes/StockPhrases One hundred and ninety]].
** Android 18 yells this before attacking Cell and being absorbed.
** In a ironic twist of fate ''Cell'' who has killed more than 600,000 people, ends up calling ''Gohan'' who at that point has become a sadistic torturing inducing murderer ''a monster''.
** And in ''WebVideo/DragonballZAbridged'':
-->'''Piccolo''': You... You're a monster!
-->'''Cell''': Oh, [[DeadpanSnarker "I'm a monster!"]]. [[NeverHeardThatOneBefore Haven't heard that one screamed at me today.]] Of all people- [[[EatsBabies Spits out a baby's pacifier]]]... [[BlackComedy Oh, that's just embarrassing! It's not even the right hole.]]
* ''RaveMaster'': "Grrrrrrrr -- you monster!"
* ''{{Claymore}}'': Teresa and [[spoiler:the recently awakened]] Rosemary have this exchange:
--> '''Rosemary''': You...damned...monster.
--> '''Teresa''': Monster... That makes two of us.
* ''GunslingerGirl''. Cyborg assassin Triela calls BadassNormal terrorist Pinocchio this during their FinalBattle, because he doesn't [[WhyWontYouDie just keel over and die]] like all her other targets. After Pinocchio throws her out a window, only to have Triela [[{{Determinator}} smash through another plate-glass window after him]], Pinocchio can only comment dryly, "Who's the monster now?"
* ''DarkerThanBlack'': The line shows up several times, but it's usually as much due to FantasticRacism as to actually evil behavior. Though [[BadPowersBadPeople given]] [[GoodPowersBadPeople the nature]] [[LackOfEmpathy of supers in this show]], there's some intersect there.
* ''{{Fist of the North Star}}'': In response to a demand for his name from one of the early bad guys, Kenshiro replies "I don't give my name to monsters." Said early bad guy had just [[KickTheDog forced a villager to try to shoot a can off the head of his little boy who was tied to a stake]], [[WilliamTelling William Tell style]].
* ''KirbyOfTheStars'': "Anyone who abandons his reason, and lives only by hatred, is a monster!" Interestingly, in the Japanese version, the term "Demon Beast" (which was replaced by "monster" in the dub) is used to describe someone who is consumed by hatred. And, in fact, anyone who has been so not only is considered a monster, it's also possible for that someone to turn into one.
* [[{{Trigun}} Vash the Stampede]] gets this periodically, even for just his skills and reputation. When things about his...special body come out this trope gets cranked up, such as the shooting-a-hole-in-the-moon thing. The single saddest example is when he saves a town in the ''Maximum'' manga shortly after being [[TransformationTrauma forcibly introduced to just how flexible he is]], and winds up reflexively catching a bullet with a 'feather' from his arm. The townspeople ''stone him''.
** On the other hand, if you try this on his EvilTwin [[InsultBackfire he'll just smile]].
** I think Wolfwood got this at least once, too. Although no one was harder on Wolfwood than Wolfwood, except maybe Lazlo and Master C.
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Greed calls his sadistic brother Pride a beast, and shortly before that, tells human allies that even he (a HumanoidAbomination) considers Pride (more of an EldritchAbomination) a monster.
* From the first episode of ''TenchiMuyo'', during the title character's fight with Ryoko:
-->'''Tenchi:''' If I had my way, I wouldn't be fighting a monster like you!
-->'''Ryoko:''' ''Monster?'' Tell me, just exactly what makes you call a pretty young lady like me ''A MONSTER?!''
-->'''Tenchi:''' You walk through fire, you walk through walls, you rip holes in the roof and you can even fly!
-->'''Ryoko:''' Very good reasons, but not good enough!
* In ''[[Manga/TheLegendOfZelda The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons manga]]'', Link hits Onox with this in outrage after Onox kills Pyoko.
* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' provides a very interesting (and complicated) example when Eren confronts [[spoiler: [[TragicVillain Reiner and Bertolt]] ]] concerning their crimes. [[spoiler: As enemy [[TheMole agents]], they've been responsible for the majority of death and destruction in the series, by destroying the Walls and providing information for Annie's attack on the 57th Expedition]]. Ironically, Eren's rant specifically condemns them for expressing [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone remorse]] over their actions, calling them inhuman monsters that have no right to even feel guilt after learning that [[spoiler: Reiner's crushing guilt over his actions has caused him to begin [[TraumaInducedAmnesia blocking out]] his true memories in order to continue functioning]]. Ymir immediately calls Eren out as well, making it clear that his [[BlackAndWhiteInsanity overly-simple]] worldview makes him unreliable and unable to grasp the bigger picture. Considering one of the major themes of the series is HeWhoFightsMonsters, accusations about exactly who is a monster are common and rarely simple.
* [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in ''Manga/KotouraSan''. This is [[BrokenBird Haruka Kotoura]]'s {{Trigger}}, and it often cues either WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises and/or DullEyesOfUnhappiness as she reverts into her [[BrokenBird pessimistic and broken persona]]. She's normally a good person; however, her [[PowerIncontinence always-on]] {{Telepathy}} often makes her look like an InnocentlyInsensitive [[MindOverManners mental invader]] towards others, hence the accusation.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''FanFic/CheerileesGarden'': [[spoiler:Applejack]] tells this to Cheerilee before being forced to cut her own hind leg off.

-->'''Axem Red''': You...you monster! How could you do such a thing?\\
'''Mecha Sonic''': Monster? I'm not a monster, ''[[AGodAmI I am a god!]]''
* ''TurnaboutSubstitution'': [[spoiler:Apollo yells this to Rhea once she confesses to him that she was the one who did all the killings that Enlemeyer was accused of.]]
* In the ''FanFic/FacingTheFutureSeries'', [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Maddie]] made one of these comments [[spoiler:when she learned how Vlad violated Danny's [=DNA=] in his cloning experiments]].
* In ''Fanfic/TheSwarmOfWar'', these are [[AssholeVictim Elegas]]’ final words to Elric. Elric’s reply is “Well, I am a monster now, Elegas”.
* ''TheImmortalGame'': Twilight Sparkle calls Nihilius, a wicked power-hungry entity [[PuppeteerParasite controlling her body]], a monster. Nihilius' reaction?
--> ''Twilight! [[{{Understatement}} Calling me a monster does not do your vocabulary or my actions any justice.]] [[CompleteMonster I’m just getting started, kiddo.]]''
* ''[[FanFic/BoundDestiniesTrilogy Wisdom and Courage]]'': During a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech in chapter 33, Zelda declares that, for all of her claims of wanting to avenge her ancestors, it's clear that all Veran really is is a power-hungry witch who steals whatever power sources she can find just so she can [[OmnicidalManiac cause destruction and chaos]] [[ForTheEvulz for her own amusement]], outright telling Veran that she isn't the Queen of Shadows as she claims to be, but "a monster that crawled forth from them."

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'', the Gingerbread Man calls [[BigBad Lord Farquaad]] this in the form of "You're a monster!" A half-comedic example, Farquaad is still [[ColdBloodedTorture doing something pretty horrific at the time.]] When called this, Faarquad responds in kind.
-->'''Lord Faarquad:''' I'm not the monster here, ''you'' are! You and that fairy tale trash poisoning my perfect world!
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'': Lisa shouts it at Homer, after learning that [[spoiler:it was he who caused the ecological disaster that got Springfield placed under a dome.]]

* In ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', Ariel calls Ursula a monster when she turns King Triton, her father, into a polyp.
* ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'': This little exchange when [[BigBad Gaston]] he sees how much Belle loves the Beast.
-->'''Gaston:''' Belle, if I didn't know any better, I'd say you had feelings for this monster.\\
'''Belle:''' He's no monster, Gaston. ''You'' are!\\
''(at that, Gaston has a VillainousBreakdown)''
* In ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'', Mantis states this in amazement as Po manages to fit a whopping forty dumplings in his mouth and set a new record.
* An indirect version in ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame''. In the opening song, narrator Clopin asks "Now here is a riddle to guess if you can: Who is the monster and who is the man?" Frollo does call baby Quasimodo a monster when he sees that the child is misformed, and tries to kill him for it. You can probably figure out on your own to which character the riddle alludes.
** This is later reprised at the end of the movie when Clopin asks, "Now here is a riddle to guess if you can: What makes a monster and what makes a man?"
* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'', Bruce Wayne describes his old enemy SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker as this.
-->'''Terry [=McGinnis=]:''' It's funny, I know about all your other major enemies but you never mentioned him. He was [[ArchEnemy the biggest, wasn't he]]?\\
'''Bruce Wayne:''' It wasn't a popularity contest. He was a [[AxCrazy psychopath]], a monster.
* In ''Disney/WreckItRalph'', there is a minor version of this, although the subjected character isn't exactly a monster to that standard, but the effect [[TearJerker is no less powerful]]. When Ralph [[spoiler:remorsefully wrecked Vanellope's kart, the poor girl is ForcedToWatch and screaming and sobbing all the time as she saw her dream wrecked [[EtTuBrute by the person she just trusted and considered hero]]]]. When all said was done, [[spoiler:she]] utters this word before running off heartbroken:
-->''You really are a bad guy...''

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]

* Grandpa Joe calls Willy Wonka this in ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'' after he refuses to let Charlie receive his promised reward. "You're an inhuman monster!" [[spoiler: It was actually a SecretTestOfCharacter.]]
** Mrs. Gloop calls Wonka a "terrible man" after her son, Augustus, is sent through the chocolate river's pipes to the fudge room. In the [[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory source novel]] she says "You monster!" instead, specifically because Wonka finds the whole situation funny and is ''laughing hysterically''.
* In ''Film/DieHardWithAVengeance'', Simon actively attempts to avoid this trope when he reveals [[spoiler:he lied about planting a bomb in a school]].
-->'''Simon:''' [[PunchClockVillain I'm a soldier]], [[EvenEvilHasStandards not a monster]]. Even though I sometimes work for monsters.
* The ''Film/GhostRider'' movie inverts this when the titular character, Johnny Blaze, [[spoiler: After putting an end to Legion by using the penance stare on every single soul he absorbed]], refers to himself as a monster when his love interest approaches him, feeling that he is absolutely unworthy of her love due to feeling shame about the form he has to take on.
* Natasha levels this one at Loki in ''Film/TheAvengers'' after he tells her what he has in mind for Barton. [[spoiler: It's just part of her very effective WoundedGazelleGambit, though.]]
* ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents has the ''villain'' do this to the ''hero'' in TheFilmOfTheBook:
--> '''Poe:''' [[TitleDrop You monster!]]
--> '''Count Olaf:''' I'm the monster? ''You're the monster.''

* In ''Film/TuckerAndDaleVsEvil'', Chad believes this about Tucker and Dale, saying "I've never been so close to pure evil". He's [[ObliviouslyEvil technically right with that statement]], [[WrongGenreSavvy though not in the way he thinks]].
* Parodied in ''Film/TheresSomethingAboutMary''. When the cops mistake Ted for a SerialKiller and he apparently "[[MistakenConfession confesses]]" having a bodycount in the dozens, one of the horrified detectives loses it.

-->'''Beth:''' I hope that you burn in hell, Eldon Perry, you ''evil'' motherfucker.
* In ''[[Film/CabinByTheLake Return to Cabin by the Lake]]'', a mob of protestors call the (presumed dead) serial killer Stanley a twisted monster.

He sums up his sentiment in a terse log entry seen in the beginning of the next episode.
-->'''Sheridan''': [[ThisIsUnforgivable Enough is enough]].
* Scene on ''Series/SesameStreet'':

* Seen at least twice in ''Series/GameOfThrones'':

** Cersei opens a conversation with Tyrion with "You monster!" because [[spoiler:he is sending her daughter Myrcella away to Dorne.]]
** Joffrey is casually called a monster by Loras in Season 1. In Season 3, Sansa admits that Joffrey is a monster to Olenna and Margaery Tyrell after significant prodding.
** Joffrey has the gall to refer to Tyrion as "You little monster" during one of his rants. Tyrion [[ShameIfSomethingHappened snarks back]] nonchalantly.
** However the trope is inverted in "Mockingbird". Prince Oberyn tells Tyrion how he and his sister went to see the 'monster' that had been born to Lord Tywin. "That's not a monster, that's just a baby."
* ''Series/{{Dexter}}'': The eponymous SerialKiller protagonist Dexter Morgan not only [[IAmAMonster believes this of himself]], but occasionally directs it at other killers whose evil is not restrained by any code.
-->'''Dexter:''' [to George King aka "The Skinner"] Oh I have my excuses and justifications, but really I just... need to. Like you. You have your excuses, finding Freebo, getting your money. But you know he's dead. You know there's no money, so really you're just... a killer. A monster. The stuff of nightmares.\\
'''Dexter:''' [to Arthur Mitchell aka "The Trinity Killer"] You were a very special kind of monster. You destroyed your own family.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. In "Warlord", InnocentFlowerGirl Kes is subject to a GrandTheftMe by the dictator Tieran, and gives a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech in response to his FreudianExcuse.

-->You monster!"

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', Terra says this to Braig regarding the kidnapping of Xehanort. [[spoiler: Of course, the whole thing was a plot of Xehanort's, but nobody told Terra that..]]
-->'''Braig''': The old coot certainly knows how to take punishment. Just like I know how to deal it out.
--> '''Terra''': You monster! What are you after?!
* ''MetalGearSolid3'': EVA says this to Volgin [[spoiler:during his torture of Sokolov.]]
* ''Videogame/TheWitcher'': The BigBad accidentally does this to himself. In response to Geralt preparing to kill him with his silver, beast-killing sword (having been disarmed of his steel human fighting one), he utters "That sword is for monsters!" Geralt's response is pretty much a silent "Yeah, I'll let you puzzle it out Sherlock", as he stabs him through the chest.
** Much eariler in the game, Geralt has this little gem
-->''"Witchers are known to carry two blades. A silver blade for monsters and steel for humans."''\\
''"Both are for monsters."''
** Which is actually a literal truth; the steel swords utilized by Witchers are made from meteorite ore, and certain monsters are as susceptible to that as other monsters are to silver.
* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'': "Die, monster! You don't belong in this world!"
* ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'': Neku says this to [[spoiler:Joshua]] after the latter's [[spoiler:identity as the [[{{God}} Composer]] and plan to destroy Shibuya]] are revealed.
** Within the first third of the game, [[spoiler:more specifically, after Neku's utterly heartless reaction to Rhyme's erasure,]] we had this little gem:
--> [[spoiler:'''Shiki:''']] "That’s inhuman... You’re inhuman, [[spoiler:Neku]]. No better than those Reapers!"
* ''VideoGame/PaperMario'': "You inhuman beast! How could you?"
* ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'': "I think we can put our differences behind us. {{For science}}. You monster." For bonus points, the Achievement for this scene is ''named'' "You Monster".
** [=GLaDOS=] shows this trope again in co-op, the first time you destroy a turret:
-->'''[=GLaDOS=]''': [[/folder]]

[[folder: What are you doing? YOU MONSTER! They're one of us... [[spoiler:just kidding. ]]
* In a similar vein, [=GLaDOS=] stars in the ''DefenseGridTheAwakening'' DLC appropriately titled ''[[InvokedTrope You Monster]]''.
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ Raging Blast'' - Goku to Frieza in story mode, once he snaps and starts going SSJ.
-->"I won't let you get away with [[MoralEventHorizon that]], you...you '''monster!'''"
* ''CrisisCore'': Sephiroth, Angeal, and Genesis are all described by themselves and others as monsters. Sephiroth is the only one of the three who [[OneWingedAngel truly fits]] this trope. Interestingly enough, Sephiroth tends to call Cloud and Zack traitors in such a venomous tone as to suggest that he's the bad guy.
-->'''Cloud:''' I've got some things...to settle with you.\\
'''Sephiroth:''' You ignorant traitor!
* ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}} Grollschwert'': Grolla to Michael Sepperin because [[ThisIsUnforgivable she blames him]] for disrupting her grandfather and master's peaceful slumber.
-->'''Grolla''': Michael Zeppelin!\\
'''Sepperin:''' ...Grolla. Such a rude entrance... how ludicrously fitting for a traitor.\\
'''Grolla:''' Silence, demon! Know that the price for toying with the souls of the dead is high!
** She calls him such a thing again when she asks him for [[PreAssKickingOneLiner any last words]] after she defeats him, just before [[spoiler:Iris comes and obliterates him into a burst of flames]].
--->'''Grolla''': Any last words, Devil?
** Also, during the beginning scene way earlier in said mode, after [[spoiler:Iris]] attacks Grolla with [[spoiler:her immensely powerful magic,]] Grolla begins to fear her from her attack and wonders what in the world she is (probably suggesting that she's describing her as a monster.)
--->'''Grolla''': What in the...!? How did she obtain such powerful magic? [[spoiler:Iris,]] what are you?
* ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxTheDevilsPlayhouse'': They stole Max's Brain when Sam [[spoiler:threatened to shoot Carol before the scanner complied, much to Curt and Bob's worry.]]
-->'''Bob:''' Audiences across the country say: "You're a monster, Sam!"\\
'''Curt:''' "What have you become?"
* Beautifully lampshaded in ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander 2''. Gage, the game's resident BigBad, has just [[NukeEm nuked a city]]. The player character utters the phrase, and Gage responds with this:
-->"Come now, was that really monstrous? This, now ''this'' is monstrous."
** He then proceeds to fire ''[[MoreDakka ten more nukes]]''.
* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', one of Frelia's {{red shirt}}s, having been cut down by [[AffablyEvil Caellach]] ([[FourStarBadass one of Grado's six top-ranking generals]]), calls his killer a monster. Caellach's response?
-->'''Caellach:''' Hmm... You waste your last breath on insults, and feeble ones at that. Die then, fool of Frelia.
* ''Videogame/FinalFantasyVI'': Kefka is referred to as such in the Advance remake. Well, sort of. The exact words are "You're Inhuman" when Shadow and Sabin reveal themselves to Kefka shortly after Kefka demands to get the poison ready so he could proceed to dump it into Doma's water supply, the message is still just as clear.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', Squall tells Seifer that he's just another enemy to the party, like one of the monsters that they regularly encounter. Seifer replies that the party is the monsters for attacking in a swarm like they do and begins the battle with "Let's go after them monsters!"
* Baiken's win quote against Order-Sol in ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''.
-->'''Baiken''': You monster! Don't pretend to be human!
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'':
** This is Thrask's reaction if you blackmail him with proof his recently-dead daughter was a secret mage.
** One of Merrill's own clan calls her a monster after [[spoiler: her mentor dies at the end of her Act 3 quest.]]
** [[spoiler:The first diplomatic dialogue option when confronting Meredith before the FinalBoss [[FinalBattle Battle]] in the mage campaign of The Last Straw is "You're a monster".]]
* Being dismissive of the destruction of [[spoiler: Taris]] in KnightsOfTheOldRepublic to Juhami will cause her to flip out at you, calling you "a beast". She has a similar but even more scary reaction to a vile man looking for cathar slaves.
* In ''VideoGame/TheReconstruction'', this is Dehl's response to learning that [[spoiler:Havan tortured Donz to death.]]
* In ''DarkSouls'', Eingyi will call you a monster if you [[spoiler:kill his mistress the Daughter of Chaos.]] Since she's one of the most kind-hearted and sympathetic characters in the game and is totally defenseless and non-hostile, it's hard to disagree.
* In ''Videogame/LegacyOfKain'', Kain gets called this by Vorador after he [[spoiler: kills Umah in cold blood]]. Kain responds (possibly correctly) that Vorador would have done the same in his place, but the incident is still shocking because it was starting to look as if [[VillainProtagonist Kain]] might have found a MoralityPet.
* Bishop Doplin of ''[[VideoGame/LegendOfLegaia Legaia II: Duel Saga]]'' gets called "garbage" and a "truly evil person". [[spoiler: After you defeat Elliot and Marienne for the final time, the party confronts Doplin in order to obtain the [[CosmicKeystone Pyro]][[MacGuffin lith]]]]. After he learns [[spoiler: the duo is dead]], he remarks that he never cared about them, and was just using them for their power. The party goes ballistic on hearing this, and call him out for it.
--->'''[[spoiler: Maya]]''': I used to think that there was no such thing as a truly evil person. but... I guess I was wrong.
--->'''Kazan''': I've never met anyone as rotten to the core... This is not a man, he's garbage.
* Done in ''VideoGame/NieR'' during the NewGamePlus; [[spoiler:now that you understand what the shades are saying and considering you are [[YouBastard cutting down children and innocent shades]] it isn't entirely un-justified]].
* ''Tsukihime'': near the end of Arcueid's route, [[spoiler:Roa says this to Shiki after he shows him how to kill things]].
* ''StarWarsTheOldRepublic'': You'll hear a lot of this when you choose dark side options. And the whole Sith Warrior storyline is essentially written for these moments.
** Inverted ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilariously]]'' fairly early on in the Sith Warrior storyline: the player has been sent by their new master to ensure that a shipment of goods that are delivered safely. Naturally two teams of enemies show up and in the ensuing conversation, the player eventually comes to the option where they can a) Convince the opponents to attack each other and wipe themselves out, b) Attack them both at once, or c) chose the option entitled simply "I'm a monster." Choosing this gives you a scene with your Sith Warrior ranting about how he is going to slaughter and ''[[ImAHumanitarian eat]]'' them involving such gems as threatening to drink their marrow, which causes the enemies to flee in terror.
* Upon defeating [[BigBad Tiberius]] in ''VideoGame/HardCorpsUprising'': [[SeeYouInHell "Go to hell,]] [[PreMortemOneLiner you monster!"]]
* Shi-Long Lang to [[spoiler:Quercus Alba]] in the final case of ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth'', after uncovering his crimes, including [[spoiler:a serious blow to Lang's home country's economy through the use of counterfeit currency]]:
--> "[[spoiler:Quercus Alba]]! You ''bastard!''"
* ''VideoGame/BionicCommando'' for the original NES had the NarmCharm-ingly appropriate "Your number's up! Monster!" directed to the game's final boss [[spoiler: Master-D AKA Hitler, after he [[HijackedByGanon hijacks the scheme from Killt]]. Right before [[YourHeadASplode Hitler's head explodes]].]] Given who it is, it's an unusual instance where calling them a monster is probably an understatement.
* At the end of ''Videogame/TheLastOfUs'', when [[spoiler:Joel kills the surgeon about to operate on Ellie, one of the surgeon's assistants]] calls him a "fucking animal". You're given the option to kill her for this.

[[folder:Web Originals]]
* An amusing variation in ''FourSwordsMisadventures'', when the heroes encounter [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures Dark Link]]:
-->'''Green Link''': What have you done with Princess Zelda? \\
'''Dark Link''': Heheh... What '''haven't''' I done with Princess Zelda?\\
'''Green Link''': You monster!\\
'''Blue Link''': You fiend!\\
'''[[TokenEvilTeammate Red Link]]''': You lucky bastard! [[{{Beat}} Uh...]] [[AndThatWouldBeWrong I, uh, mean, how could you.]]
* Another humerous example was in the [=OneyG=] YouTube Video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pSmhZFbCy0 Dragonzball PeePee]] was after Goku (Kaka Carrot Cake) arrived on the scene, and Vegeta (Virginia) starting talking about how evil Frieza (Freezie Pop) really was.
-->'''Virginia''' Kaka...Carrot...Cake...
-->'''Kaka Carrot Cake''' [[{{Beat}} Derp]] [[https://gs1.wac.edgecastcdn.net/8019B6/data.tumblr.com/19beb64200a4058984cc9052c6f39c8e/tumblr_mfpwn7pBuf1rzi1ugo1_1280.png face.]]
-->'''Virginia''' When I... When I was just a little boy... He... HE DIDN'T INVITE ME TO HIS BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!
-->'''Kaka Carrot Cake''' YOU MONSTER FRISBEE!
-->'''Freezie Pop''' The cake was delicious.
-->'''Virginia''' Kaka Carmen Electra. Show him what forth it mean to be... Super Sand Legend. EHHH. I'M DEAD!
* ''SuperMarioBrosZ'': Axem Red of the Axem Rangers to [[BigBad Mecha Sonic]], after he [[spoiler:[[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath destroys the other four]]]].
-->'''Axem Red:''' You...you monster! How could you do such a thing?\\
'''Mecha Sonic:''' Monster? I'm not a monster. '''[[AGodAmI I'm a god!]]'''
* [[http://www.threadless.com/submission/58539/you_really_grate_on_me This]] Threadless T-Shirt.
* In the ''WebVideo/FiveSecondFilms'' video "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCfSkkjLlCc Lemons]]", a sentient lemon accidentally kills another lemon. He decides to [[IAmAHumanitarian process the carcas as lemon juice]]. This trope is the response he gets from the horrified neighbors when the cops arrest him.
* Yang from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' exclaims this to a pair of [[TheSoulless Grim]]... not because they are literally monsters, but because [[BerserkButton they made her lose]] [[NobodyTouchesTheHair a strand of hair]].

* Aeris of ''Webcomic/{{VG Cats}}'' has this reaction to Leo's [[VideogameCrueltyPotential sadistic treatment of his Sims]] in [[http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=122 one of the comic strips]].
-->'''Leo:''' Do you think Sims feel pain?\\
'''Aeris:''' You're a ''monster'', and you're going straight to hell!
* In ''RPG Comics'' Hero says it to Gaaralion.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has this as [[spoiler: the Ancient Black Dragon's]] last words after [[spoiler: Vaarsuvius uses [[MoralEventHorizon Familicide.]]]] The subject agrees to a certain degree.
-->[[spoiler:'''Vaarsuvius''']]: We are all in the Monster Manual somewhere, are we not? My entry lies between [[spoiler:Elemental and Ethereal Filcher]].
* Done subtly in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'':
--> '''Abraham:''' You don't understand. I'm here about a monster.
--> '''Raven:''' There are many ''unusual beings'' in this school, but none among them are ''monsters''. Except, perhaps, the man who now stands before me.
* ''Webcomic/KevinAndKell'': While Rudy and Wendell are delivering Easter Eggs they find find that the quality control isn't what it should be and some are hatching. [[http://www.kevinandkell.com/2012/kk0331.html Rudy decides to eat the chick]] leading to Wendell cry this out.
* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'': Captain Tagon [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2010-06-04 is called a monster by one of the]] [[LeParkour Parkata Urbatsu]] members, when he informs them that there will be no video of the big chase scene involving them and the Toughs because all the PU cameras were destroyed before the actual pursuit began.
* Minmax in ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' does this posthumously towards [[spoiler:Dellyn Goblinslayer]], a villain who Minmax beat to a pulp after learning he was [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil a serial rapist]]. This turns out to be a faux-pas since [[YouKnowImBlackRight one of Minmax's comrades is a literal monster]].
-->'''Minmax''': Humans aren't capable of doing what he did to you. [[spoiler:Dellyn]] was a monster.\\
[[spoiler:'''Kin the Yuan-Ti''']]: But ''I'm'' a monster.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': In "Who Shot Mr. Burns", when Burns [[spoiler:steals a well of oil from Springfield Elementary, this destroys the old folks' home, gets Moe's bar closed down and causes Bart's pet dog to be badly injured. He later [[MoralEventHorizon begins a project to block sunlight from reaching Springfield, as a means of maintaining his monopoly over local heat and light]]. When a town hall meeting is called about this project, people are discussing their various grievances against Burns, who just so happens to come in right when Bart is talking about his injured pet dog]]:
-->'''Burns:''' Oh, those wheels are squeaking a bit. Perhaps I could sell him a little oil.\\
'''Bart:''' You twisted old MONSTER!\\
''[Bart runs at Burns, as if about to attack him, until he sees that Burns brought a gun]''\\

In exchange, Taurus Bulba declares that Gosalyn has [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlived her usefulness]], has her raised even higher, and drops her. Darkwing's answer? 'You butcher!', a cheap shot, and Bulba being worried for the first time in his criminal career.
* A flashback on ''XMenEvolution'' showed a castle, Mystique's voice screaming "Monster! What have you done to him?" and Mystique running out of the castle with an infant Nightcrawler in her arms with Magneto in pursuit. It's hinted that Magneto is somehow responsible for Kurt's fuzzy blue appearance. Or maybe he just circumcised him.
* In ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fast Forward]]'', Leonardo, while going to stop Baxter Stockman from transplanting Bishop's brain into himself, explains the true meaning of being a monster as well as the differences between a monster and a man, and asks him whether he was either one and whether he would like to use his power to create or destroy.
-->'''Leonardo''': (about Bishop) He owed a lot of people, Baxter. But he's been paying it back by changing the world. Bishop's work is actually united people of all races, earthlings or otherwise. I mean, we can walk the streets in daylight... because in Bishop's world, no one's considered a monster based on how they look, only by how they act. Are you a monster or a man? Do you wanna use your skills to destroy? Or like Bishop, can you see a way to create something?
