Quotes: Leeroy Jenkins
Dealing with the Lich King is serious and dangerous business. It requires exceptional stealth and strategy, and knowing Finn and Jake, they'll probably just run up to him screaming battle cries.

Spike: I had a plan.
Angel: You had a plan?
Spike: Yeah. A good plan. Smart, carefully laid out. But I got bored. (attacks)
Angel, "In the Dark"

There are only two tactics a real warrior needs! Frontal assault and DEATH BY FRONTAL ASSAULT!

Spike: I, uh...I offer penance.
Mook: Penance? You should lay down your life! Our numbers are depleted; the feast of St Vigeous has been ruined by your incompetence!
Spike: I was rash, and if I had to do it all over again... who am I kidding? I would do it EXACTLY the same, only I'd do THIS! FIRST!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "School Hard"

Dumbass Alucard player going into the boss room before we could all gather.

Here they come, they're charging us!
Why should we put up a fuss?
It's a war that won't last long.
The man once wrote: Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger. Tolkien had that one mostly right.
I stepped forward, let the door bang closed, and snarled, "Fuck subtle."
Harry Dresden, Changes

Your mind follows the simple path... the choice of an animal. You see an enemy and you attack it, unthinking. But you have courage, at least. To slay a bold animal like you is not without glory.

Applejack: ...but you can't let a convoluted backstory stop you from helping your friends! With just a little teamwork we can all-
Twilight: I'm going in alone!

Tommy: There goes my careful planning, all blown to hell. Thanks to you. You screwed up real good, Lance.
Lance: He killed my brother. What do you want me to do, mow his lawns?

Chie: Here I go!!
Teddie: Wait, what?

Jamaal: [...] I think this is a pretty good plan, we should be able to pull it off this time. Uh, what do you think Abduhl? Can you give me a number crunch real quick?
Abduhl: Uhhh.. yeah, gimme a sec... I'm coming up with thirty-two point three three, repeating of course, percentage, of survival.
Jamaal: Well, that's a lot better than we usually do. Alright, you think we're ready-
Die, you alien shithead! (clip falls out of gun)
Billy Glenn Norris, Mars Attacks!

Oh... What would a brave pony like Rainbow Dash do? ...CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGE!!!!

Rainbow Dash: We gotta help Daring Do retrieve the ring for safekeeping before it's too late!
Twilight Sparkle: Okay, but sounds to me like we're in way, way, way over our heads. We're going to need a carefully thought out plan...
Rainbow Dash: (flies off) I'm coming, Daring Do!
Twilight Sparkle: That's not a plan!

Locksmith: (examines vault) Alright. What do we got?
Redhead: Two, left, right.

When Michael Jordan jumped into the air, the other team had two choices: let him dunk or put five defenders on him. If they took the second option, Jordan would pass the ball to one of four wide-open teammates. It almost wasn't fair. Dominique Wilkins played the same way, but there was a big difference. It only took two defenders to throw a monkey wrench into his plans and he was often nine- or 10-feet into the air before he realized he had no idea what the hell he was going to do with the basketball he was holding.

I am convinced that [paladins] are a unique lot amongst the humans. My theory is that they lack higher brain function, unable to logically assess a situation and calculate an outcome. One has only to make mention of the Light to get them frothing and battle ready - at which point they will rush headlong into any engagement with complete disregard for their own well-being.
Baron Rivendare, World of Warcraft
