"None can stand in our way, for we are the Space Marines."
"They shall be pure of heart and strong of body, untainted by doubt and unsullied by self-aggrandisement. They will be bright stars in the firmament of battle. Angels of Death whose shining wings bring swift annihilation to the enemies of Man. So it shall be for a thousand times a thousand years, unto the very end of eternity and the extinction of mortal flesh."
— Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines, Warhammer 40,000
"Walls of Stone, Walls of Iron,
Fall down all the same.
They may delay, but never prevent
The hail of death and pain."

"Through the valleys and peaks of Mount Hyjal, across the shifting sands of Silithus, against the Legion's dread armies - we have fought. We are the nameless, faceless, sons and daughters of the Alliance. By the Light and by the might of the Alliance, the first strike belongs to us and the last strike is all that our enemies see.
We are 7th Legion."
— High Commander Halford Wyrmbane, World of Warcraft
"WHEN WE HUNT, WE KILL. NO ONE IS SAFE. NOTHING IS SACRED. WE ARE BLACKWATCH! WE ARE THE LAST LINE OF DEFENSE. WE WILL BURN OUR OWN TO HOLD THE RED LINE! IT IS THE LAST LINE TO EVER HOLD!"

"Behold! My peerless army! Their bodies may return to ash, but their spirits still hear my call! These men are my legendary heroes – my loyal followers! They’re my true friends --breaking the rules of space and time to fight once more at my side! They are my treasure within treasures; they’re my right to rule! They make up my mightiest Noble Phantasm — Ionian Hetairoi!!"
—Rider Alexander the Great, Fate/Zero
"Okay, Lucas, does that satisfy you? The Granviller's women are good enough to handle Croats. Do you think their men might give you a morning to remember?"
—Grantville Gazette V, 1632
Leonidas: "SPARTANS! What is your profession?"
