Your presence does not surprise me, Assassin. I have known of you ever since your craft entered the Eastern Fringes. Why did I not have you killed? Because your mission and the act you are about to commit proves the truth of all I have ever said or done. I merely punished those who had wronged, just as your false Emperor now seeks to punish me. Death is nothing compared to vindication.
Everything that follows is a result of what you see here.
— Dr. Alfred Lanning, I, Robot
You are greater than any I have ever trained. By killing me here you have rewarded me more than you can possibly know.

"Just a few seconds before the flame of his life went out, it flickered, and he turned it into a blazing flare that covered the entire world. I've never laughed as hard as I did that night. I've never cried as much as I did that night. I've never drank as much, either. He was our captain, and he was a magnificent man!"
Steve Rogers: Who are you?
HYDRA Agent Heinz Kruger: The first of many. (ingests suicide pill and dies)
What does he mean by that?

— The first words of the revived Madara Uchiha, Naruto
You have used up all your power; that wasn't very smart of you Angemon, now you are no use to anyone! You can't escape from the Dark Forces, evil is everywhere, so don't savor your victory. There are other Digimon just as powerful as I am, some of them are even stronger—I wonder what you'll do when you run into them? You haven't won at all, what a waste of time!
— Devimon, Digimon Adventure
