"Nothing counts when it comes to Gill: not concentration, nor determination, nor skill. He will beat your arse regardless. He will hit you with special moves that fill up the entire screen and deplete half your energy bar in a single stroke. He will rise again when K.O.-ed, with full health, and unleash the FUCKING WRATH OF GOD on you. He will do all this in your first fight with him. And when you finally beat him, when he finally lets you win, you will feel no joy nor sense of accomplishment. All you will feel is the dread of having to fight him again."
— Dan Staines of Eegra, in an open letter to Capcom
"So, how does it feel to be ruled by overwhelming power?"
"Repeat this after me: I'll never take on a god again!"
"Hahahahaha! Witness my limitless power!"
—Seth, Street Fighter IV
"It's official: YOU SUCK!"
— Shao Kahn, Mortal Kombat
"This chick makes Cyber Akuma (or Mecha Gouki or whatever that piece of crap is rightly called) look like a crippled, brain dead kitten. It should be illegal to make bosses like that as it could lead to psychological issues and even cardiovascular strain of the highest magnitude."
"Genocide Cutter, destroying you since '94."

"It is absolutely unacceptable for you to deal lethal damage on your first turn! It completely ruins the balance of the game! I cannot approve approve of someone like you being the final boss! In fact, no one would approve of such a lousy game if it had that!"
— Valvatorez, Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten
