I'm about to use the power of the sun! If you don't fear its power, then C'MON!
—Banjo Haran, Daitarn 3
"Sun, you grow my food, you kill my enemies. You're totally worth the skin cancer."
—Son-Goku, Dragon Ball Z Abridged: Revenge of Cooler
"If only I could hold a sun in my hand, I would purge all worlds of life. Wipe them clean of sin. I would burn whole cities, boil oceans down to their bedrock."
Sixteen hours ago an American airplane dropped one bomb on Hiroshima and destroyed its usefulness to the enemy. That bomb had more power than 20,000 tons of TNT. It had more than two thousand times the blast power of the British "Grand Slam" which is the largest bomb ever yet used in the history of warfare. The Japanese began the war from the air at Pearl Harbor. They have been repaid many fold. And the end is not yet. With this bomb we have now added a new and revolutionary increase in destruction to supplement the growing power of our armed forces. In their present form these bombs are now in production and even more powerful forms are in development. It is an atomic bomb. It is a harnessing of the basic power of the universe. The force from which the sun draws its power has been loosed against those who brought war to the Far East.
—President Truman, August 6, 1945
