Being alive is wonderful! And the most wonderful thing about life is taking it away from other people.
Ladd Russo, Baccano!

Why not?
Johan Liebert, on his reasons for, well, everything, Monster

I would fight only for myself and love only myself. If all other people exist out there to magnify that love, then there is no more splendid world than this one. They allow me to experience the joy of living... for as long as there are people out there to kill... then I will not cease to exist.
Gaara, Naruto

Nemesis Prime will destroy!
Nemesis Prime, Transformers Armada

     Comic Books 
Oh yes!
Fill the churches with dirty thoughts!
Introduce honesty to the White House!
Write letters in dead languages - to people you've never met!
Paint filthy words on the foreheads of children!
Burn your credit cards and wear high heels!
Asylum doors stand open!
Fill the suburbs with murder and rape!
Divine madness!
Let there be ecstasy, ecstasy in the streets!
Laugh and the world laughs with you!

Kid. I'm the Joker. I don't just randomly kill people. I kill people when it's funny. What would conceivably be funny about killing you?

     Fan Fiction 
I just want to have a little fun. Maybe jump to a village in world A, kill a few people, upset the order, move on to world B, start some fires and send everyone in a terror, then on to world C where I manipulate a dictator or a crime lord for a while... and repeat ad infinitum until I die. Really, why would I ever want to conquer or rule? Ruling is such a messy business. With this, I can have as much fun as I like, doing whatever I like, wherever I like, and the sky's the limit.

You see gentlemen, greed is for amateurs. Disorder, chaos, anarchy. Now that's fun!

You can't take away people's right to be assholes!
Simon Phoenix, Demolition Man

The only sensible way to live in this world is without rules. And tonight, you're gonna break your one rule.

Do you know what I noticed? Nobody panics when things go "according to plan," even if the plan is horrifying. If tomorrow I tell the press that a gangbanger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan." But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!
The Joker, The Dark Knight

Alfred Pennyworth: A long time ago, I was in Burma, my friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. So we went looking for the stones. But in six months, we never found anyone who traded with him. One day I saw a child playing with a ruby the size of a tangerine. The bandit had been throwing them away.
Bruce Wayne: Then why steal them?
Alfred: Because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

Howie: Why, Chad?
Chad: Because I could.
Howie: Oh, my God.
Chad: So how does it feel, Howie? How does it feel to really hurt someone?
Howie: Oh, my God.
Chad: See you Monday.

Kill everyone now! Condone first degree murder! Advocate cannibalism! Eat shit! Filth are my politics! Filth is my life!
Divine, Pink Flamingos

Listen kid, I'm not gonna bullshit you, all right? I don't give a good fuck what you know, or don't know, but I'm gonna torture you anyway, regardless. Not to get information. It's amusing, to me, to torture a cop. You can say anything you want cause I've heard it all before. All you can do is pray for a quick death, which you ain't gonna get.
You ever listen to K-Billy's "Super Sounds of the Seventies" weekend? It's my personal favorite.
Mr Blond, Reservoir Dogs

My pain is constant and sharp, and I do not hope for a better world for anyone. In fact, I want my pain to be inflicted on others. I want no one to escape.
Patrick Bateman, American Psycho

The time would be easy to know, for then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals thrown aside and all men shouting and killing and revelling in joy. Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom.
Old Castro, The Call of Cthulhu

Thick, fresh blood poured down Rawhead's throat; he gulped it greedily. The hot taste of the world. It made him feel strong and wise. The was only the first of many meals he would take; he'd gorge on anything that took his fancy and nobody would stop him, not this time. And when he was ready he'd throw those pretenders off his throne, he'd cremate them in their houses, he'd slaughter their children and wear their infants' bowels as necklaces. This place was his. Just because they'd tamed the wilderness for a while didn't mean they owned the earth. It was his, and nobody would take it from him, not even the holiness. He was wise to that too. They'd never subdue him again.

Angelus: Hi, Rupert. I wasn't sure you were gonna wake up. You had me worried.
Giles: What do you want?
Angelus: I wanna torture you. I used to love it, and it's been a long time. I mean, the last time I tortured somebody, they didn't even have chainsaws. Oh, yeah. Acathla. He's an even harder guy to wake up than you are. I mean, I performed the rituals, said all the right phrases... blood on my hand. Got nothing. Big doughnut hole for my troubles. I figure you know the ritual. You're pretty up on these things. You could probably... tell me what I'm doing wrong. But honestly, I sorta hope you don't... 'Cause I really wanna torture you.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "Becoming, Pt 2"

To hold in my hand a capsule that contained such power. To know that life and death on such a scale was my choice. To know that the tiny pressure of my thumb, enough to break the glass, would end... everything. Yes! I would do it! That power would set me up above the Gods! And through the Daleks, I! SHALL! HAVE! THAT! POWER!
Davros, Doctor Who, "Genesis of the Daleks"

Food Mart Security Guard: Pretend like I ain't talking to you. Pretend like I ain't even on this Earth. I know what you are. Now, I ain't steppin' to, but I am a man - and you just clipped that shit and act like you don't even know I'm there!
Marlo: I don't.

[Marlo] be killing niggers just to do it. See? Nigger kill motherfuckers just 'cause he can. Not 'cause they snitchin', not 'cause it's business... but 'cause this shit just come natural to him.
Bodie, The Wire

Robert Baratheon: What about Aerys Targaryen? What did the Mad King say when you stabbed him in the back? I never asked. Did he call you a traitor? Did he plead for a reprieve?
Jaime Lannister: He said the same thing he had been saying for hours... "Burn them all".

Unnamed minion: In mercy, does your power lie?
Glory: No, brainless, in torture, death and chaos does my power lie.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "The Weight of the World"

So can you tell me
What exactly does "freedom" mean
If I'm not free to be as twisted as I want to be?
Disturbed, "Divide"

What you touch, you don't feel
Do not know, what you steal
Destroy everything you touch, today
Please destroy me, this way.
Ladytron, "Destroy Everything You Touch"

     Mythology and Religion 
Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness.

"Peggy": The moment of death!
"Albert": The raging fires of a nuclear holocaust, frozen in time! The trees twisting in the unmoving wind, the shattered glass from the windows hanging in mid-air!
"Albert": A vision of the future destruction of this world!

Aameul: So much talk of good and evil bores me!
Hethradiah: To understand evil is to understand true power.
Aameul: Don't you lecture me!
Hethradiah: Maybe we should focus on killing Asmodeus.
Aameul: That spineless thief? I will spill his brains with that scepter of his and take back what he stole from us!
Hethradiah: What a splendid idea!
Aameul: Platitudes! From you? Ha! You are trying to deceive me!
Hethradiah: Really, Aameul, your paranoia will be our undoing.
Aameul: My paranoia will be your undoing! I know your game!
Hethradiah: Can we at least agree that evil, in its purest form, is complete annihilation?
Aameul: Never!

I like destroying pretty things.

Your laws, like your bones, were made to be broken.

A Chaotic Essence has no interest in anything remaining the way it is. If it's broken, the mission is to repair it - just in time to smash it to flinders. All systems are bad and need to be destroyed, all order must be subverted, and wherever there are two bricks on top of one another, they need to be knocked down. Chaotic essences generally produce mercurial personalities, childlike one moment and monstrous the next. There is a higher percentage of mental disorder among widderslainte with this sort of avatar than any other, and such Nephandi are generally poor at planning, long-term action or anything other than spur-of-the-moment action.

You boys think you're crazy, huh? Jumping out of airplanes... flying like birds? (chuckles) That is crazy! I like this phone. This is a nice fucking phone. So, what do we have here? Grant... and Jason... from California, huh? Well, I hope your mama and papa really, really love you, cause you two white boys look expensive! And that's good because I like expensive things... (Grant mumbles) I'm sorry, what did you say? What did you say?! Do you want me to slice you open like I did to your friend?! SHUT THE FUCK UP!!! Okay? I'm the one with the fucking dick! Look at me, look me in the fucking eye. HEY! YOU FUCK!!! Look me in the eye. You're my bitch. I rule this fucking kingdom. Shut the fuck up... or you die. (Jason mumbles too) What is it, Jason?! Jason, what is it?! Why aren't you laughing now like you did back there?! What, is this not fun anymore? Have I failed to entertain you? You see, thing is, up there, you thought you had a chance. Waaaay, up in the fucking skies you thought you had your finger on the pussy trigger. But hermano, down here... down here? ...You hit the ground.
Vaas, Far Cry 3

Life... dreams... hope. Where do they come from, and where do they go? Such meaningless things... I'll destroy them all!
Kefka, Final Fantasy VI

Destruction isn't supposed to make sense! It's only fun when it's senseless!

You're looking at it rationally - there are people who are useful to you, and people who ain't, and the people who ain't got to go. Me, I'm not rational. I don't care if you're useful or not. I feel like taking you out, Devo, so that's what I'm doing.
Trevor Phillips, Grand Theft Auto V

Oh, the feeling that everyone around you is an enemy. Heh heh. I know it all too well. The tiniest spark can set off an explosion of fear, resulting in...horrific mutual destruction. All I did was watch the comedy of errors unfold from the audience.
Simon Keyes, Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth 2: Prosecutor's Path

Liquid Snake: What the fuck are you doing?
Psycho Mantis: What does it look like, ass? I'm torching everything that moves and almost everything that doesn't.
Liquid Snake: Why?

Richard, Looking for Group

Tear down creation, just to see if you can.
Jephton the Unholy, The Order of the Stick

Caliborn, Homestuck

     Web Original 

I'll be the first to admit: Humans are the worst. (points to self) Case in point. So I understand why you would like to see us all locked away, or better, killed! (...) But I would like to mention the fact that you and I have a common enemy: the ones in control, the people who pull the strings, the dirty, rotten humans who run our Kingdoms. Government, military, even the schools: they're all to blame for your lot in life! They're all pests that need to be dealt with! Fortunately, I'm the best exterminator around - no offense to any rodents in the room.
Roman Torchwick, RWBY

The Joker: Y'know, there are three kinds of people in this world - the optimistic who find the glass half full, and the pessimistic that see it as half-empty. Then there's the paranoid, they just think someone's drinking out of their glass.
Corrigan: Which one are you?
The Joker: I'm the one that knocks the glass over.

Sauron: Master, why are you crushing dat mountain?
Morgoth: Just because I can!
Sauron: Where is logic in that?
Morgoth: In case you didn't notice it for last 60000 years - I like to break stuff!

Well don't go round killing people you've always hated. Do something much more random, like... killing people that you've never met.

It's not about greed, or lust, or any other simple sin. It's about doing what you want, when you want, how you want to whoever you want and making no excuses to anyone for anything. If somebody want to stop you, they better be ready to kill you.

Raven: You don't have to follow the same path as your mom! I mean, if you're a rebel-
Kitty: Ugh! Why does anyone have to be a rebel or a royal? I do what I want- and I want to be like my mom.
Ever After High: Spring Unsprung

Pain is hilarious!
Bill Cipher, Gravity Falls

Alright, Ford! Time's up! I got the kids! I THINK I'M GONNA KILL ONE OF THEM NOW JUST FOR THE HECK OF IT!
Bill Cipher, Gravity Falls

Oh, it's the Apocalypse alright. I always knew I'd have my hand in it.

If I did not now and then kill one of them, they would forget who I am.
