"I'm done. I know when I'm beaten. A princess surrenders with honor."
— Azula, shortly before she attacks Iroh, Avatar: The Last Airbender, "The Chase"
Green Goblin: (to the police) I surrender!
"We surrender! Come a little closer!"
She’s probably planning something like getting put in jail, then breaking out and showing us there’s no point in trying to catch her, because we can’t keep her. And she’ll do it with teeny-weeny bugs, make Tagg look bad, maybe get him fired.
Falco: Are you gonna listen to that monkey?!
Meteo Crusher: Ha. You're not as stupid as you look!!! (unleashes final attack).
—Star Fox 64 (you have to keep attacking the boss to trigger this dialogue)
...Listen. I know you didn't answer me before, but... Somewhere in there, I can feel it. There's a glimmer of a good person inside of you. The memory of someone who once wanted to do the right thing. Someone who, in another time, might have even been... a friend? Come on, buddy. Do you remember me? Please, if you're listening... let's forget all this, okay? Just lay down your weapon and... well, my job would be a lot easier. ...You're sparing me? Finally. Buddy. Pal. I know how hard it must be. To make that choice. To go back on everything you've worked up to. I want you to know, I won't let it go to waste. ...Come here, pal. *One-Hit Kill* Geeettttttt dunked on!!! If we're really friends... you won't come back.
Dr. Nefarious: (melodramatically) *gasp* I am defeated! I have no choice *laughs to himself* but to throw myself on your mercy!
Ratchet: (surprised) Really? I mean... (sternly) That's right, Nefarious! Your rein of terror is finally—
Tirek, his arms thrown up as he pleaded for mercy, cowering until the greater demon had turned its back, before sinking a stolen dagger into its skull, sitting back to watch the army rip itself apart as accusations were thrown and demons battled, leaving a precious few to be absorbed into Tirek’s own warband.
The rainbow of light shot out from the glowing mass, flying in an arc toward Discord. “No... no, please, don’t do it, don’t—AAAH!!” The rainbow light engulfed Discord, who roared out in pain. Kimono watched, but was unable to feel anything for him. This was exactly what he deserved. He may never be truly gone, only locked away in stone... but it didn’t matter anymore. Kimono had, at last, overcome Discord.
