Quotes: Evil Gloating

"Waiting for him to continue, Bond took the measure of his enemy. He knew what would be coming — justification. It was always so. When they thought they had got you where they wanted you, when they knew they were decisively on top, before the knock-out, even to an audience on the threshold of extinction, it was pleasant, reassuring to the executioner, to deliver his apologia — purge the sin he was about to commit."
— Ian Fleming's You Only Live Twice

Future!Shego: Well Kimmie, it's been real. Erase them from history!
Future!Drakken: What?! No taunting?! No "how did I do it" speech?! Oh, poor supervillain form, Shego!
Future!Shego: Ya think?
Future!Drakken: Most definitely. What's the point in ruling the world if you don't stop to smell the roses?

The Doctor: I see. You're one of those boring maniacs who's going to gloat, hmmm? Are you going to tell me your plan for running the universe?''
Taren Capel: Oh no Doctor. I’m going to burn out your brain. Very very slowly.
Doctor Who, The Robots of Death

Phantom Limb: The lair of the Phantom. Behind these modest walls lies the most technologically advanced system of controlled evil in existence. (Gripping orchestral music starts playing) You, sir, are sitting smack dab in the middle of location B for the Guild of Calamitous Intent!!! (Music ends abruptly)
Brock: You like doing that, don't you?
Phantom Limb: Oh yes, next to the 'Behold-A-Giant-Walking-Death-Ray' speech, the 'Welcome-To-Hell' speech is my favourite.

Imagine the brain as a vast mansion with...oh, let's say a million rooms. A million locked doors and a million keyholes. And yet, how few of those rooms we ever enter. Until now. My psycho-chemicals have begun to open all of the locked doors in my head. I'm tapping the 90% of the brain we never use and it's giving me such...wonderful ideas. I've finally done it. The Justice League are mine. Their thoughts belong to the Key. And with their help, I shall open the doors onto a new universe! Oh, and make a note of an interesting side effect of my expanding consciousness. I can't stop talking to myself.
The Key, JLA #8

Jack: I'd love to stay and gloat, but I'm told I do too much of that.
Wuya: Oh, so true.

"Let me tell you how important it is to keep your mouth shut. Me, I've seen so many damn people going on and on about 'these will be the last words you ever hear' and 'take these words with you to the afterlife,' and then that gives whoever they're fighting an opening to strike back. Crazy, isn't it? I see it all the time, in books, in plays, even in real life! I don't even know why, but somehow the more comfortable someone is with killing, the more they flap their mouth when it comes time to do the deed, yakking on and on and on. As you might have guessed, I myself happen to be such a person! And therefore, as such, in light of that revelation, I'll say that one is enough, and since that one is of course myself, I want you all to shut up. You're boring. Swallow those words and take them to the afterlife yourself if you want them delivered there so damn much."
Ladd Russo, Baccano!! 1934 - Alice in Jails

Why do they always talk so much?
Bruce Wayne, Batman Beyond

It must be the first by-rule of the wacko-psycho killers' union: "Immobilize the good guys (preferably, spread-eagled) and subject them to paranoid ravings."
Licht is running true to form.

Typical master criminal, loves the sound of his own voice. [...] Gloating is a sign of insecurity, Ludwig. Stop it.
Edmund Blackadder, Blackadder II

I have been ranting on unoriginal concepts throughout this whole list and now that we are in the top 2 it is time to tackle one of the big ones: Unoriginal villains. You know what I am talking about: those unthreatening hacks that just stand around monologuing constantly, always laugh and somehow manage to do all of this while not getting killed mid-speech or mid-laughter. The absolute worst offender of this kind by far is Exdeath from Final Fantasy 5 . Apart from having a backstory that may as well have been made with madlibs nothing about this guy is subtle. All he does is boast, monologue and laugh. I am not exaggerating. Before the final battle with him he literally does all three. I don't think I need to say anymore. This cliché speaks for itself.

Somehow I manage to find cover and what does Baron von Ruthless do? [...] He starts monologuing! He starts like, this prepared speech about how "feeble" I am compared to him, how "inevitable" my defeat is, how "the world will soon be his!", yadda yadda yadda. [...] I mean, the guy has me on a platter and he won't shut up!

"I don't mind talking. I get a kick out of watching the great James Bond find out what a bloody fool he's been making of himself."

"Only a third-rate person would lick his lips in front of his prey."
— Sousake Sagara, Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid.

"What do you think of that, L?! This is my perfect victory! That's right!! I WIN!!!"
Light Yagami, Death Note

"I really gotta learn to just do the damage and leave town. It's the stay-and-gloat that gets me every time."
Ethan Rayne, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Hel: Any last words before we tear this world apart and build a new one in my image?
Loki: Really? The premature villain gloat? I'm a failure as a parent.
