* Done by Luciano Bradley in ''Anime/CodeGeass''. "Question! What is it that you value the most?" (cuts to a look of absolute fear from the victim) "That's right. YOUR LIFE!"
** [[IronicEcho Tossed right back at him]] by Kallen Stadtfeld, before she gives him [[KarmicDeath the payback he so richly deserves]].
** "Tag. You're dead."
** Usually the ass-kicking will be accomplished [[TheChessmaster strategically]] [[MagnificentBastard or sneakily,]] but you have to know ''something's'' about to go down when you hear "I, Lelouch vi Britannia command you..."
* Vegeta from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' has a ridiculous amount of these.
** "Does a machine such as yourself experience fear?!"
*** Additionally, [[FanFic/AlternateRealityDBZ does it experience nocturnal emission?]]
-->'''Cell:''' You fool! Have you forgotten? I know you! Your cells are woven into my very being! You, Vegeta, are a part of me!\\
'''Vegeta:''' Now I'm going to take you apart! How ironic!
** "Maybe if this were five-hundred times Earth's gravity, you would have the advantage. But ten? I don't even ''feel it.''"
** A few minutes before the above: "Welcome to the end of your life. And I promise, it's going to hurt."
** Gohan also delivers an immensely badass one to Super Buu when he arrives on the battlefield after [[spoiler:Old Kai unlocks his potential]]. Buu says to him "So hotshot, you want to fight Majin Buu?" and Gohan responds with "Fight you? No, I want to kill you," and then lays the biggest beating on Buu that he had probably ever experienced.
* ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'': Ryoma's "Mada mada dane" ("You still have lots more to work on") before turning around and wiping the court with an opponent he was losing against up until that moment.
* Another Ryoma, though from ''Manga/GetterRobo''. He purposefully grabs hold of a yakuza boss' knife blade and tells him "What's the matter? Come on, either push or pull. You'll save face if you at least chop off one finger" before kicking his terrified ass and scaring off the rest of his thugs.
* You really don't want to be around when Sesshoumaru of ''Manga/InuYasha'' fame says, "It seems I've been underestimated".
* "I... am Manga/SamuraiGun."
* [[BigBad Hao]] [[DissonantSerenity Asakura]] of ''Manga/ShamanKing'' has a minor example with his, "So tiny/small" line. Not sure if this counts since it's not restricted to being said pre-battle; indeed, it's been said as a ''response'' to an attack mid-battle, or as a ''post-battle'' OneLiner. But it seemed appropriate.
* Touma From ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' does this always before finishing the current arcs ''BigBad'':
-->'''Touma:''' I will break it... That messed up illusion of yours!
** Accelerator has two while {{curb stomp|Battle}}ing [[spoiler:Awaki]]: "But, you know, just because I've gotten weaker doesn't mean you're any stronger now does it?" and "Sorry, but this is a one-way-road!" (NOTE: The AlternateCharacterReading for the kanji used to write Accelerator's name reads "ippotsuko" or "one-way-road").
* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'': "WHAT--DID YOU DO--TO--MIAKA? I asked you a question, DAMN IT!"
* Several in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. For example, Aizen before rendering Hitsugaya a bloody mess. "Don't use such strong words. They make you look weak."
** Ichigo after Orihime cries out for him not to die. He [[BarehandedBladeBlock grabs the blade]] and... "Sorry, Grimmjow. Looks like I can't let you hurt me anymore." *SLASH*
** Rangiku after Izuru has rendered her sword unusable. "So what if I can't hold my weapon to use it? I just won't hold it." She then proceeds to unleash her shikai and own Izuru with it.
** Yumichika in Chapter 321. "[[PreassKickingOneLiner Thank you]]". And that was just the ''start'' of his CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
** "That was a practice swing."
** Way back when Ichigo and Sado first became friends. "Hello, I need an ambulance by the bridge. How many? *Counts the thugs holding Sado hostage* Five of them."
* In ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', every hero in the show, at one point or another, gets to yell some variation of "WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM!!". This culminates in the speech before the final fight, where every Dai-Gurren member gets one line in their epic BadassBoast speech.
-->'''Nia''': ''[[YouCantFightFate Even when trapped by karma's cycle...]]''
-->'''Yoko''': ''The dreams we left behind will open the door!''
-->'''Leeron''': ''Even if the universe stands in our way...''
-->[[spoiler:'''Viral''']]: ''Our [[HotBlooded seething blood]] will [[ScrewDestiny determine what will be!]]''
-->'''Simon''': ''We'll break through time and space!''
-->'''All''': ''And defy all who would stop us to grab hold of our path!''
-->'''Simon''': '''''[[TitleDrop Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann!]]'''''
-->'''All''': '''''[[CatchPhrase JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE?!]]'''''
* ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' '''"[[{{Invocation}} THIS HAND OF MINE GLOWS WITH AN AWESOME POWER.]] [[BattleCry ITS BURNING GRIP TELLS ME TO DEFEAT YOU.]] [[ScreamingWarrior TAKE THIS! MY LOVE. MY ANGER. AND ALLLL MY SORROW!]] [[CallingYourAttacks SHINING FINGAAAAAAAAH SWOOOOOOOORD!"]]'''
* [[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} "Life and death may be back to back, but they will never face each other. ...I'll show you. This is what it means to kill something."]]
** [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai "Those... really were... dreamlike days. Thank you. But, I'm sorry. I know I'll lose everything. But still. But still...]] ''[[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai I can't forgive him.]]''
* The scene in ''Manga/YuGiOh'' where a villain is talking about how he can use his powers to seduce any woman in the world -- after knocking out and ''planning to rape'' Tea/Anzu. Yami is waiting by the door, listening to the whole thing: "You think so?" Asskicking ensues.
** The Toei anime gave Yami Yugi the catchphrase "''Saa, GAME no jikan da''" (So, it's game time) which usually meant the dice were fixed, the cards were palmed, and you were probably going to wish you could die. The manga translates this to 'Let's play a game' instead. The Manga also has a pair of one liners for him, bookends style. He would open with 'Game Start' and end it with his PreAsskickingPose and the Pre-Mortem -I Mean, ''insanity'' one liner, ''Penalty Game''.
* "The first thing I'm going to burn is your tongue." In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', [[ColonelBadass Mustang]] says this to Envy [[spoiler:when he finds out that the latter killed Hughes.]]
** Mustang takes this to a higher plane. He pulls one off with the simple words "Too slow," before proceeding to nuke Ed, the stadium, and a whole lot of spectators in a barrage of fiery explosions.
** Also:
-->'''Greed:''' I'm sorry, who the hell are you?
-->'''Izumi:''' PISSED OFF!
** [[RunningGag "I'M A HOUSEWIFE!!"]]
** And the end of the manga with the fight against Father. [[spoiler: All of the alchemists are pounding on Father like there's no tomorrow, Ed's automail arm is completely destroyed, Al sacrifices his soul to bring Ed's real arm back, and at this point, Edward is majorly [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown pissed,]] and brings back a line from the ''very first chapter'':]]
--->[[spoiler: '''Edward:''' [[PrecisionFStrike Get up, you worthless fuck.]] [[CrowningMomentofAwesome It's time you learned why you're not in our league!]]]]
** Since nobody actually got hit, it might not count, but one good line was from Episode 2's penultimate scene, when Ed responds to Father Cornello's underestimation of his alchemic powers by ''[[spoiler: [[BoltOfDivineRetribution animating a statue of god the size of a church to deliver a warning shot]] [[PowerFist in the form of a punch.]] ]]'' Cornello only survived this because Ed is the most pacifistic of all main characters, aside from Al. Considering Ed spends about 97% of his time kicking ass, this is saying something.
--->'''Cornello:''' You didn't fool me with that little display down there. Without this, the only alchemy you can perform is to your own metal arm.
--->'''Edward:''' You know what? You're not the only one who can't stand doubters, Preach'. [[BadassBoast Here's the REAL hammer of God!]]
* The one time [[spoiler:Claire Stanfield]] of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}!'' breaks out a PreAssKickingOneLiner (in the fourth novel, ''Drugs & the Dominoes'') he makes it count, quoting the [[ShoutOut first spoken lines of dialog]] in the ''history of film'': "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jazz_Singer_(1927_film) You ain't heard nothing yet!]]"
** Jacuzzi in the anime, right before his {{traintop|Battle}} beatdown of Goose: "I have a gun...''in my heart!''"
* The hot-headed Kirie "Jump-to-conclusions" Kojima of ''Manga/GirlsBravo'' also does this often anytime she sees the protagonist Yukinari in a hard-to-explain situation.
-->'''Miharu:''' Yes, we were in the bath together.\\
'''Kirie:''' Take a bath... IN! HELL!! ''(clobbers Yukinari)''
* "[[Anime/TheBigO BIG O!]] SHOOWTIIMEE!"
* ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion''
** I. Want. Rei. Give her BACK!
** Especially astonishing if you remember all of Shinji's frantic "Move you stinking mecha, or everyone will blame me for the [[ApocalypseDayPlanner Apocalypse of the Week]]" - whining in the original Series.
** ''''ZE BEASTO!''''
* "Don't you talk about Sasuke like you own him, especially in front of me, you rotten bastard!!!" -Manga/{{Naruto}} to Orochimaru, as the [[BerserkButton second and third tail]] ''[[SuperpoweredEvilSide simultaneously]]'' appears...
** "I already told you... '''[[ShutUpHannibal SHUT THE HELL UP!!]]'''" -Naruto, angered at Pain's hypocrisy, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome and then throwing a Rasen-Shuriken at him and the others]]
** "Now the world shall learn what pain is..."
** Naruto [[spoiler: quoting Jiraiya's book by]] saying "Just give up on trying to make... [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome ME GIVE UP!!]]
** Naruto got it from [[spoiler:his daddy]], people.
--> '''Minato to the Kyuubi''': "Not on my watch."
** And then Naruto gets possibly his best one in the entire series come Chapter 615. Three simple words:
--> ''[[spoiler:"[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Let's go, Hinata.]]"]]''
* In ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' TV's last episode: '''"I'll send you to the DEEPEST PITS OF HELL!! While you're there you can LICK THE DEVIL'S ASS!!!!"''' A ''very'' {{badass}} thing to say.
* '''[[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha ZENRYOKU ZENKAI!!!]]'''
** '''GET SET.''' "I'm sorry, and thank you, Erio, Caro. There's nothing to doubt, right?" '''RIOT ZANBER.'''*[[DramaticGunCock Cha-CHACK.]]* "Because I was weak, I was hesitating and worrying. I will probably always repeat this. But. That's fine... Because all of that is me."
** [[WavemotionGun "I]] [[DungeonBypass found]] [[OhCrap you..."]]
* Done by Ange in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' [[spoiler:before she kills Kasumi with the help of the Stakes]]:
--> '''Ange''': [[GratuitousEnglish Have a nice dream. See you in hell.]]
** Also done by Beatrice just before [[spoiler:killing George and Shannon]] during the second game in the anime:
--> '''Beatrice''': You think I'd let him say it!?! [[{{Baka}} Duuumbaaaaass]]!!!
* [[LightNovel/{{Durarara}} "Don't screw with the traffic police!"]]
** [[MemeticBadass "You just went for my head, didn't you.]] [[BerserkButton You know, you could've killed me, right?]] [[CrazyAwesome And you knew that, which means you were]] ''[[CrazyAwesome trying]]'' [[CrazyAwesome to kill me, right?]] [[UnstoppableRage So no matter what happens to you now,]] ''[[TheBerserker you can't complain, right?]]''"
* Yusuke from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''. Anyone remember in the beginning when he was fighting Suzaku?
--> '''Yusuke''': For all your careful planning, you made one mistake. You went and pissed me off!
** I seem to recall a really good one from that fight from the English dub that went something like this:
--> '''Yusuke''': Alright, if you call off your goons now, I'll only rip out one of your lungs.
--> '''Suzaku''': And if I refuse?
--> '''Yusuke''': ''Then hold your stinkin' breath!''
** That fight Yusuke had with Jin during the Dark Tournament Saga:
--> '''Yusuke''': (''about to fire an attack into Jin's that will surely kill them both'') Let's see which one of us can take a bigger asskicking!
---> What's amusing is Yusuke's follow-up reaction: "Damn! At least one of us should have died!"
* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'': "Put Ya Guns On!"
** Every single character has one or two trademark one liners for use in the event of asskicking. Masamune who says the above also uses "Are You Ready?" and "Let's Party!".
* Done by Teresa in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}''. "Say your prayer you wretches. Filth like you is even lower than [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Youma]]. I am going to kill every last one of you". Do not touch her MoralityPet, for you are [[CurbStompBattle weak]] [[SingleStrokeBattle against her]] and MadeOfPlasticine.
* [[LightNovel/{{Slayers}} Lina Inverse]] does this quite often.
* ''LightNovel/TrinityBlood'' "Crusnik 02. Nanomachine output 40%. Activate."
* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'': LET'S PARTY!
* ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'': Rena Sayers from the prequel series. "I'm sorry everyone, but please hang in there. If you look away, you'll die." And boy does she deliver.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has a few good ones.
--> '''[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Chu/Chew]]''': What did you say was over?
--> '''[[ImprobableWeaponUser Usopp]]''': ''This fight!'' Did you know that grog burns? (''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Usopp lights Chu up like a Christmas Tree]]'')
** The perhaps most epic one: In Enies Lobby, Luffy is informed that its garrison numbers in the tens of thousands.
--->'''Luffy''': And I'm alone. '''Get out of my way!'''
** There's also [[spoiler: post-timeskip]] Luffy who gives us one with only one word. He's fighting the same exact pacifista that [[spoiler: defeated and scattered all nine Straw Hats two years before.]] It shoots a laser ''made of light'' at Luffy who remarks; "slow." [[SingleStrokeBattle Then lays it down for good with one jet pistol.]]
** Admiral Kizaru delivers an awesome one before kicking the crap out of Basil Hawkins:
-->Speed is... "weight". Have you ever been kicked at the speed of light?
** Luffy stands atop a building, calling out for Bellamy who asks Luffy if he "even knows how to throw a punch", causing the observing crowd to burst in laughter. Luffy simply says "Do I know how to throw a punch?" and proceeds to one-hit Bellamy, the crowd instantly goes silent.
** Zoro also has many of these. For example this golden line in the Fishman Island battles, when he fights an eight-sword-wielding fishman. Zoro slices the fishman's swords ''[[UpToEleven horizontally]]'' and stares very scarily at him.
--->'''Zoro''': You want to kill me?! [[BloodKnight You couldn't even kill my boredom!!!]]
** Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, and Chopper have a great one when taking on the Franky Family. "Don't leave a single bone unbroken."
* ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' has a lot, whether they are hilarious lines -
--->'''Matsudaira''': Wash your own shitty underwear!
** Or serious lines -
--->'''Gintoki''': Don't ever show your face around her again, you sick son of a bitch!
* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'': Moka's ever famous "KNOW YOUR PLACE!" Followed by a kick to the face.
** "I hope you didn't see a [[{{Irony}} doppelganger]]... because, you know, that means you're going to die." Cue the EvilLaugh and a roundhouse kick administered to the bad guy.
* ''Manga/HayateCrossBlade'':
--> '''Hitsugi''': Now then... Hoshikawa-san... Let us dance!
* [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Meowth]] gets a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious one]] when he confronts the Dream Thief in ''Best Wishes!''
--> '''Dream Thief:''' A Meowth that can talk? We'll be rolling in dough! Now just sign this contract...
---> '''Meowth:''' '''AFTER ALL YOU PUT ME THROUGH, I WOULDN'T SIGN YOUR ''REPORT CARD!!!''''' ([[ClothingDamage slashes Dream Thief's clothes off]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome with one attack]]).
* In the first ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' movie, ''Tenchi Muyo in Love'', BigBad [=KAIN=] makes the mistake of injuring young Noboyuki in front of Achika. This ends up [[NiceJobFixingItVillain unlocking Achika's power]].
-->'''Achika:''' I have had enough! I will not allow this! I will pay you back! [[ThisIsUnforgivable Because forgiveness... for one like you... could ''never'' be an option.]]
* Given how much asskicking there is in ''MaidenRose'' these show up fairly often. One of the more memorable ones is after Berkut recovers from the train being derailed by two anti-tank missiles and comments that Taki must be insane to have done that. Cue Taki standing on top of the wreckage with his katana adding, "and yet, I still haven't managed to finish you off, have I?" before a CurbStompBattle ensues.
* A pretty badass one from ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'':
--> '''Random Bandit:''' Who the hell are you?
--> '''Hiko Seijuro:''' Speaking my name to someone about to die is meaningless.
* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'':
** "If you want to see my sword that badly, so be it. You can all make the march to hell together."
* You wouldn't believe it, but TheNineties Creator/DiC dub of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' had one with the final battle between Sailor Moon and Queen Beryl.
-->'''Luna:''' Sailor Moon, you just have to win! ''Everyone's counting on you!''
-->'''Sailor Moon:''' I hear you, Luna. *Raises Wand* I'm not afraid anymore.
-->'''Queen Beryl:''' ''[[VillainousBreakdown YOU SHOULD BE!'']]
