Joseph Joestar: Wh-Whats wrong? Not going to hit me, Dio? Weren't you going to drink my blood?

Dragon King: Oh great! Is this where we're supposed to exchange witty remarks?
Spider-Girl: Actually, I was hoping we could skip that part and jump right to where you tell me your origin which will hopefully give me a few subtle clues on how to defeat you.
Dragon King: Do you really think I'm that stupid?
Spider-Girl: You don't want to know.
Spider-Girl #4

Do it? Dan, I'm not a Republic serial villain. Do you seriously think I'd explain my master-stroke if there remained the slightest chance of you affecting its outcome? I did it thirty-five minutes ago.
Ozymandias, Watchmen

Can you run? You should run. Seriously, you want to run. Okay. What do you know? What do you have? No, lose the swords. Sai trump swords. Flock tactics. She attacks, you back off. Don't engage until someone can lock down the sai with a chain, then go en masse. (beat, shocked expression) En masse means everyone at once. I know you're a ninja but.... Just do it! Listen to me: you have a choice... strictly following the ancient code of ninjutsu and being a dead ninja or going in like I say and maybe being a live ninja.
Prodigy giving phone advice to a bunch of mooks, Young Avengers vol.2 #6

Goon: Gordon's dead.
Bane: So show me the body.

Siamese fighting fish, fascinating creatures. Brave, but on the whole stupid. Yes they're stupid. Except for the occasional one such as we have here who lets the other two fight. While he waits. Waits until the survivor is so exhausted that he cannot defend himself, and then like SPECTRE... he strikes!
Ernst Stavro Blofeld, From Russia with Love

James Bond: Do you expect me to talk?
Goldfinger: No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!

I'm not threatening you. As you can see, I'm unarmed- (BLAM) ...I am of course wearing full body armor. I am not a moron.

Loveless: ...Shoot him in the head.
Artemus Gordon: Damn!

Valentine: You know what this is like? It's like those old movies we both love. Now, I'm going to tell you my whole plan, and then I'm going to come up with some absurd and convoluted way to kill you, and you'll find an equally convoluted way to escape.
Harry Hart: Sounds good to me.
Valentine: Well, this ain't that kind of movie.


Nicodemus: I take it that this is the portion of the conversation where I reveal my plans to you?
Harry: What have you got to lose?
Nicodemus: And apparently you expect me to tell you of any vulnerabilities I might have as well. I am wounded by the lack of professional respect that implies.
Harry: Chicken.

I want them alive if possible. If not - if not, I'll understand.

George Marks: (waves his head slowly, smiling)

Hoyt: What a job, poker. Ask anyone on the street and they'll call it a game of chance. Or talk to Sam here, and he'll say it's about bluffing, won't you, Sam?
Sam: Ja.
Hoyt: Ja! But it's not, is it? It's about keeping you playing until the house collects. (poker game continues before Hoyt suddenly grabs a knife and shanks Sam in the neck) Sorry, house rules! Ah! Look at that, we have the same cards. So let's raise the stakes a little, shall we? (beat) Foster, Jason Brody, whatever your name is, it's slipped my mind. How stupid do you think I am?! We should keep playing. Dealer's on the left, right? Guess he's sitting this one out...

Manny: Is this where you tell me all about your secret plan, Hector? How you stole Double N tickets from innocent souls, pretended to sell them but secretly hoarded them all to yourself in a desperate attempt to get out of the Land of the Dead?
Hector: No. (shoots Manny)

I am actually going to have to kill you, as discussed earlier... So that's the itinerary. Also, I took the liberty of watching the tapes of you killing her, and I'm not going to make the same mistakes. Four part plan is this: One, no portal surfaces; two, start the neurotoxin immediately; three, bomb-proof shields for me, leading directly into number four: bombs for throwing at you. You know what, this plan is so good, I'm going to give you a sporting chance and turn off the neurotoxin! I'm joking, of course. Goodbye.
Wheatley, Portal 2

I got what I came for, and I need to be moving on: places to go, spells to cast... gods to wake. Spoiler alert: we'll fight, I'll win, you'll track me down again - just in time to watch your world tumble into chaos. Title scroll, lights come back up. Oh wait - no, they won't! If I could kill you, I would. I really, really would; I don't like leaving matters unresolved. I'd do it cleanly and painlessly - none of the fancy stuff, I'm not that sort of villain, no Stage Magician. I take pride in my work, and I'm not afraid to get my hands... Filthy. But, unless I grind you to a fine dust, the fucking Bees will just whisk you away to safety. I've seen it happen enough times. I'll just make sure you're stuck here a while, so I can get on with things. Farewell...
Freddy Beaumont, The Secret World

It would be unfair to make you fight all four advisers at once, but... Fair treatment was never shown to my people. I'm just returning the favor.
Kael'thas Sunstrider, World of Warcraft

huh. always wondered why people never use their strongest attack first.
Sans, Undertale, after starting the fight with a very brutal attack

Now, Credenza, I'll explain... how this is going to work.
I'm going to let you live, bound of course, as I discuss my plan in glorious detail.
Then I'll set up some kind of hilarious Death Trap, while dangling your powerful magical weapon nearby, with plenty of chances for you to escape— oh wait! Sorry, my mistake.
That's exactly what we're not going to do.
Captain Snow, Archipelago

Too late. Heroes, man. Think they can mess around, maybe take care of some side quests, roll in here at the last second like it's all cool... This ain't new. Know something, Cucumber? You were right. I am sick of the same thing. That's why this time, there's gonna be some changes.
Noisemaster, Cucumber Quest

The enemy of my enemy is my enemy's enemy. No more. No less.

Oh, dear. I do so mistrust it when "impossible" is one's initial reaction to an idea.

We haven't moved on them because you don't want [the modern mercs]. You want [The Administrator]. And they don't know where she is. Yet. But they're close. She'll have to reveal herself soon. When she does? We'll kill all of them. You'll get your rocks. And we'd better get paid.

"No monologue? ... You're not going to explain how you did it? How you're going to deal with my teammates or explain what happened to me?"

Please, Zuko. What ulterior motive could I have? What could I possibly gain by letting you get all the glory for defeating the Avatar? Unless somehow, the Avatar was actually alive. All that glory would suddenly turn to shame and foolishness. But you said yourself that was impossible.

Rule Two: Countdown clocks are for hacks!

Someone has interfered with the main terminal! (pulls out a remote control) Luckily for me, I anticipated such an event.
Jose, Cybersix episode 11

Our showdown, while inevitable, is premature. Although it would be the simplest thing for me to take away your bending right now, I won't. You'd only become a martyr. Benders of every nation would rally behind your untimely demise, but I assure you, I have a plan. And I'm saving you for last, then you'll get your duel, and I will destroy you.

I've got to turn up the power... Wait, what am I worrying about? There's no way Mega Man can stop my Robo-Spider! (beat) I'm not taking any chances. (turns up power)
Dr. Wily, Mega Man, "Robo-Spider"

Aku: Oh, put that thing away, Samurai. We all know what's going to happen. You'll swing your sword, I'll fly away, and probably say something like, "I'll be back, Samurai!" And then I'll flutter over the horizon and we probably won't see each for... about a week. And then we'll do the same thing again.
Jack: Your wordplay will not trick me, villain! (attacks)
Aku: I'll be back, Samurai - you'll see! Bwah-ha-ha-ha! (flutters over the horizon, then reappears) See what I mean?
