Quotes: Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?
"I'm proud that I wrote a comic where a Lovecraftian horror is stopped in its tendrilly tracks by a stuffed animal."

Oderus: The root of all evil and hatred and shame.../ So many victims, so many names / But... they are all the same / Ereshkigal? Charun? Helel ben Shara? Lucifer? Satan? We would know who you are!
The Devil: Welcome GWAR to my domain / It's nice to be called on by so many names / Now what's this I hear about you kicking my ass?

Grundy: Birdnose is right!
Justice League, "The Terror Beyond"

"No matter how subtle the Jenoine, a knife between the shoulder blades will seriously cramp its style."

"I have already killed one god today. If I had known today was a day for killing gods, I would have paced myself"
Iron Bars, Midnight Tides (book five of Malazan Book of the Fallen)

"So I brought in Death, and Death went around killing things, and then I brought in God, and Death killed God, and then I had to kill him..."
— A YouTube video, discussing Scribblenauts

Ivo Shandor: I am a god!

"You're not even really alive. You're just a machine... and machines can be broken!"

Shepard to a piece of Reaper debris, Mass Effect 3 Leviathan

"Personally, I've always liked tackling legends. It's so much fun to let the air out of them."
Watchman, one of the very Bad Ass stormtroopers of the Empire of the Hand.

"If they stat it, we can kill it."

"Don't worry about the eldritch horror, we've got a plan for this contingency — as soon as we've evac'd we'll just pop a brace of Storm Shadows on his ass and send him right back down where he came from."
Captain Alan Barnes, The Jennifer Morgue

"It's a funny thing about the old gods. You think that just because they're old, they must be difficult to kill. But when the fighting starts, they go down just like anybody else. They're not stronger, they're just older."
The Beast/ Martin Chatwin, The Magicians.

Iris: To think I'd lose to a single mage fighting by herself...

"...Is that all? My blade is telling me to spill your blood, and I am inclined to obey. I don't care if you're a God, a human, or even an insect; I will rip you apart just the same."
Grolla, RosenkreuzStilette

The Guarding Dark, Thud!

The Profound Darkness: "Hello, my name is the Profound Darkness, and I got beaten to death by a teenage kid and his motley crew of heroes and misfits."

How can this be? After I've absorbed God? How can this mere human, this alchemist, manage to... (Gets punched out by Ed)

See, cuz right now this is the part in any RPG ever where you have to kill God. It's pretty rad. I love killing God, I do it every day. You know, some people have breakfast, I kill God, with my super-giant house-sized sword, you know, it has 3 mortages in it, 2 families can live in it, but instead I use it as a weapon; it's pretty rad.
Raocow

Puny god.

Chakravartin: You have exceeded my expectations. I praise you. You are indeed the one to inherit this world. Gaea must be led by one of its own.

Asura: ...(extends arm) I refuse.
