"Our connection goes deeper in any game. Together, we can take over the world!"
—Alejandro, Total Drama World Tour
"No. Don't you see? We don't have to run away anymore! We no longer have to hide our love for each other. I am more powerful than the Chancellor, I... I can overthrow him! And together, you and I can rule the galaxy! We can make things the way we want them to be!"
Join me and I'll tell you all the things that you denied
And when it comes down to it you'll be ruling at my side
—Beth Kinderman, Underneath The Mask
"Join me, Link, and I will make your face the grrrreatest in Koradai, or else you will die!"
"There are eight million people in this city, and those teeming masses exist for the sole purpose of lifting the few exceptional people onto their shoulders. You? Me? We're exceptional. I could SQUASH YOU LIKE A BUG right now... but I'm offering you a choice. Join me. Imagine what we could accomplish together. What we could create... or we could destroy, causing the deaths of countless innocents in selfish battle again, and again, and again, until we're both dead! Is that what you want? Think about it, hero!"
— The Green Goblin, Spider-Man
Tombstone: The Big Man - whomever he might be - has nothing against heroes. No hero can thwart enough crime to dent his income. But you...you frighten criminals off the street entirely. Except when you're off battling the likes of the Rhino. Then the Big Man's profitable army of petty thugs think themselves...beneath the Spider-Man's notice.
Spider-Man: So as long as I keep fighting crime, you'll keep making bigger and badder -
Tombstone: Now you're learning. But there is a way out: come work for me. You can still save the world like a good hero. I'll even pay you. All you have to remember is to look the other way on occasion. On any occasion I choose.
—The Spectacular Spider-Man, "The Invisible Hand"
Spider-Man: Ah, where are my manners? Here you come to terrorise the Tombster and I don't even say thank you! My only excuse is that you're also holding innocent people hostage. It's confusing to my poor spider-brain!
Green Goblin: Mmm, yes, quite the puzzler. But the Green Goblin has a solution: you and I join forces! Consider what we could accomplish. By combining our powers, WE COULD RULE NEW YORK!
Spider-Man: We talking Manhattan or all five? Nah, sorry, I make it a rule not to partner with anyone green...or, you know, psychotic.
Green Goblin: Oh well. Your loss - of life!
—The Spectacular Spider-Man, "Catalysts"
Then join us! You are ending—join us! We will free you from the bio-forms!
—Empire from the Ashes (second book)
But it is not to late... can you not see the value in our friendship? Imagine the powers I can give you, human. The cybernetic implants I gave you, were simply toys. If I desired, I could improve you... transform you into something more efficient. Join me, human, and we can rule together.
— SHODAN, System Shock 2 ending
So I am wonderful
In fact, it's so much who I am
It's part of my name!
And with my help, you can be the same
Elphaba, the most celebrated
Are the rehabilitated
There'll be such a whoop-de-doo
A celebration throughout Oz
That's all to do with you!
— The Wizard, Wicked
Sinestro: There may even be a place for someone like you in my new reality. Join forces with me...or be obliterated.
Sinestro: Don't be such a sanctimonious fool! You don't realise the - did you say "okay"?
Dodgers: Yeah, sounds good to me. Ground floor of the new cosmic order, baby!
Dodgers: Oh, wait, you had the whole hero-villain seduction speech worked up, didn't'cha?
— Duck Dodgers, "The Green Loontern"
The Master: Look at all those planetary systems, Doctor! We could rule them all!
The Doctor: (flatly) What for? What is the point?
The Master: The point is that one must rule or serve, that's a basic law of life! Why do you hesitate, Doctor? Surely it's not loyalty to the Time Lords, who exiled you on one insignificant planet?
The Doctor: You'll never understand, will you? I want to see the universe, not to rule it.
— Doctor Who, "Colony in Space"
Cyberman: Our species are similar, though your design is - inelegant.
Dalek Thay: Daleks have no concept of elegance!
Cyberman: This is obvious. But consider: our technologies are compatible. Cybermen plus Daleks. Together, we could upgrade the universe.
Dalek Thay: You propose an alliance?
Cyberman: This is correct.
Dalek Thay: Request! Denied!
Cyberman: Hostile elements will be deleted. (open fire)
Dalek Thay: (unimpressed) EXTERMINATE!
— Doctor Who, "Doomsday"
Open your systems to me. Let me merge with your systems and your cyborgs. Open your systems to me and I will make you strong.

"Jenabell gives him the 'join me and together we could rule the world' speech, which has never worked ever in the entire history of its being attempted. . . . Well, let me step forward with this message to all super-sexy would-be queens of the world: I will gladly accept your offer and rule the world by your scantily clad side."
— Keith Allison, review of The Incredible Paris Incident on Teleport City.
Iskander: For example, if my Ionion Hetairoi was equipped by your Gate of Babylon, it would undoubtedly become the most powerful army. Even that President of the West wouldn't be more than a break of wind.
Gilgamesh: Hm. And?
Iskander: Once again, will you not be my ally? If we join together, we can surely conquer as far as the ends of the stars.
"The Reapers need men and women of action. People like us. Sovereign recognizes your value. You've... impressed it. Surrender to the Reapers and you will be spared. Join us and we can find a place for you."
— Saren, Mass Effect 1
"Can’t you see, none of them can understand you as I can, for we are kindred spirits whose powers spring from the same source. So, girls do not make me destroy you. For we are smarter, we are stronger, we are invincible, we are superior to them, and we shall rule! All we have to do is work together. Girls, join me!"
"I don't want to hurt you, Erik. I never did. I want to help you. This is our time. Our age. We are the future of the human race. You and me, son. This world could be ours."
— Sebastian Shaw, X-Men: First Class
"You see, we are the last two rats. We can either eat each other... mmm... or eat everyone else."
— Silva, Skyfall
Didn't you say you wouldn't let us kill your friends? Well, look around you...try saying it again. I SAID, TRY SAYING IT AGAIN! Feel your friends growing cold and realize their death. This will continue. Your feeble words and principles will be proven wrong. This is what happens when you talk about hope and ideals. This is reality. Naruto, what do you have in this reality? You have no father and mother. Your mentor Jiraiya is dead. And as long as you keep opposing us, your friends will die one after the other. No-one who acknowledged you will survive. And you already know what lies ahead of all this - loneliness. There's no need to stay in this reality. Come here, Naruto.
— Tobi, Naruto
He's got your number now
He knows just what you've done
You got no place to hide
you got nowhere to run
He knows your life of crime
I think it's suppertime
He's got his facts all straight
You know he's on your trail
He's gonna turn you in
They're gonna put you in jail
He's got the goods and I'm
All set for suppertime
Come on, come on
Think about all those offers
Come on, come on
Your future with Audrey
Come on, come on
Ain't no time to turn squeamish
Come on, I swear on all my spores
When he's gone, the world will be yours
— Audrey II, Little Shop of Horrors
Pitch: I thought this might happen. They never really believed in you. I was just trying to show you that. But I understand...
Jack: (Attacks Pitch) You don't understand ANYTHING!
Pitch: I don't know what it's like to be cast out? To not be believed in? To long for... A family? All those years in the shadows, I thought no one else knows what this feels like. But now I see I was wrong. I believe in you Jack, and I know children will too.
Jack: In me?
Pitch: Yes! Look at what we can do together! What goes better together than cold and dark? We can make them believe! We'll give them a world where everything, everything is—
Jack: Pitch Black?
Pitch: And Jack Frost, too.
Lucifer: This power Dante, we can use it together! You and I, friend. Just think of what we can achieve!
Dante: I would rather not.
Lucifer: Dante, I can reunite you with Beatrice. Together, we will rule the three kingdoms of the afterlife!
Dante: It's not going to happen.
