"If Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees got married and had a baby, your ring would be the baby!"
— Tristan, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series
Frodo: You say the ring is dangerous, far more dangerous than I guess. In what way?

A tear spilled down Callahan's right cheek, then another. He wiped them away absently. "I've never dared handle it, but I've seen it. Felt its power.

Lifting the chains of oppression from you
Wiping away the lines carved in your face
Take the Relic from this place...
— Symphony X - "The Relic"
Revenant: Believe what you will, boy. You Shall Not Pass.

Arthas: Still trying to protect the sword, are you?
