Pre Ass Kicking One Liner / Animated Films
The Disney Animated Canon:
: "Now you shall deal with me, dear prince. And all the powers of HELL!" ( Sleeping Beauty cue )
Evil Laugh and Maleficent turning into a dragon. : The Lion King "They call me MISTER Pig!"
: "A snake, am I? Aladdin Perhaps you'd like to see how sss-snake-like I can beeeeeee!" Jafar before he, well, turns into a snake.
: "There's no escape this time, Basil!" The Great Mouse Detective Ratigan says this in his Villainous Breakdown and prior to his No-Holds-Barred Beatdown on Basil.
: "I'm going to do what I should have done TWENTY YEARS AGO!" Frollo before he attempts to murder Quasimodo. His second one-liner, " The Hunchback of Notre Dame And he shall smite the wicked and plunge them into the fiery pit!" would count if not for Frollo being subjected to a deliciously karmic
Disney Villain Death before he can do anything else, making these his Famous Last Words
Mulan ( Shan-Yu: It looks like you're all out of ideas.) Mulan: "Not quite!"
"I am ready baby! Light me!" Mushu before he takes off with the rocket.
The Princess and the Frog Ray the firefly utters a fairly odd one when he faces Facilier's shadow demons: "Don't make me light my butt!"
"A bug's gotta do what a bug's gotta do!"
"It's not slime, it's mucus!" Said by Tiana before she foils Facilier.
: "You want me to be the bad guy? Fine. Now I'm the bad guy." Said by Mother Gothel (the villain) before she defeats Rapunzel offscreen.
Tangled : " Big Hero 6 " Said by Go Go Tomago, before WOMAN UP! destroying a tower of microbots.
"Welcome to the boss level!" Turbo in his in One-Winged Angel form
Wreck-It Ralph : "Chew on this, ya puss-filled boils!" Said by Captain Amelia, while shooting at pirates.
Treasure Planet In the opening of we have: "The warrior said nothing, for his mouth was full. Then he swallowed. And then he spoke."
Kung Fu Panda In ...
Superman/Batman: Apocalypse Superman: This ends now.
He then proceeds to incinerate a whole army of Doomsday clones with a massive, sweeping blast of his heat vision.
: "Hey terrorist... Team America: World Police Terrorize THIS!" The whole film is a parody of every cliché in action movies.
Not an Action Hero example, but it does come before ass-kicking . . . . " Hello, Oogie."
Jamie in right before the final battle with the Rise of the Guardians Big Bad Pitch: "I do believe in you. I'm just not afraid of you."
Vitruvius in gets offended by Lord Business calling him old. He expertly turns this insult into a pre asskicking one liner before laying waste to Business' robots.
The LEGO Movie
Vitruvius: Did you just call me old?
Lord Business: Yes.
Vitruvius: Well, Junebug, I prefer the term... experienced. (Cue dismantling of all surrounding robots)
It's the victory that doesn't last long due to Lord Business' Genre Savvy: He decapitates Vitruvius when he isn't looking, who's picked the not-so-ideal moment of relaying some wisdom to Emmet. Still, the awesomeness doesn't wear off because this is Morgan Freeman who's voicing Vitruvius here, plus, it was amazing to see the way he dispatched the robots so skillfully after delivering the perfect line in such a composed manner. And he's blind.
