Quotes / Mêlée à Trois

"Bull and Bear over the Dam, at each other's throats... but a light from Vegas? Ball spinning on the wheel, more than two at the table. Placing bets. All lose in different ways. A dam of corpses, towns of corpses, scattered across the sand. But whose, and in what shares? Even the dealer doesn't know."
The Forecaster (summing up the game's central conflict), Fallout: New Vegas

A battle for supremacy against many foes is a battle of the best kind. There are few considerations, only those concerning where to place your next shot. It is war in its purest form.
Commander Karziel, Ultramarines 5th Company, Warhammer 40,000

"The lesser of two evils is still evil!"
Huey Freeman, The Boondocks

Pintel: (watching Norrington, Will, and Jack fight whilst Elizabeth screams and throws rocks) How'd this go all screwy?

Asuka:“What have you been teaching her?”
Shinji:“I think it’s a more valid interpretation in my opinion.”
Thousand Shinji, chapter 5

Well, I knew it'd come to this... *Luigifan looks around and develops a very Sonic-like grin on his face.* Drathilox, Black Doom, Will Legal, Green Horse, and of course, myself, and our respective factions... This really is just like old times... there's only one way this can go down. The same way it's gone down in the past. We all try to grab as many people as we can, and ruthlessly get in each other's way! AW, YEAHI IT'S MÉLÊE A TROÍS TIME!!!!!
Luigifan enthusiastically declaring that this trope is in effect during the "And that's why he shakes" roleplay of '"White Dark Life''
