If the world keeps rejecting me, then I shall reject the world.
Zeref, Fairy Tail

"Evil must be confronted." [Many years of abuse later...] "Evil must be deleted."
Teru Mikami, Death Note

There are many immortal monsters who roam this Earth. When I look at them, I wonder, were they created out of a desire for immortality? Many of them desire war. I've seen them roaming the bloodiest battlefields, but in their battle cries, I hear a craving. I think they cry out, for death. Nosferatu, the No-Life King. His castle, his kingdom, its people, his loved ones, even his very identity; everything was lost. All that remains is a pale shadow, wandering from battle to battle. I have come to believe that those frightening immortals are, in fact, frail, sobbing children.
Arthur Hellsing, about Alucard, Hellsing

"You know who isn't human? You know who isn't human?! PEOPLE LIKE YOU!"
Lucy, Elfen Lied

Say, how about we put an end to all of this? The two of us could become Witches and destroy everything! Everything in this world that has ever made us hate, everything that has ever made us cry, will turn to ashes until nothing is left, like it was all just a bad dream! We'd have no worries! Isn't that nice?
Akemi Homura, Puella Magi Madoka Magica

There was one SOLDIER named Sephiroth, who was better than the rest. But when he found out about the terrible experiments that made him, he began to hate Shinra. And then, over time, he began to hate everything. Shinra, and the people against them. Sephiroth, who hated the planet so much that he wanted to make it go away. And the people who tried to stop him.

In their midst, Cadence could see a painful light damaged and scarred by failure, loneliness, and sister’s negligence. But shining through that was the desperate love of a lonely mother for her daughter. Luna, Cadance could see. Love only knew truth. Now she knew how monsters were made.

You cannot imagine the unbearable finality of it. And in that one moment, I took everything that was dear to me and transformed it into nothing more than a memory.
David Banner, Hulk

Alright, so maybe I am killing everyone in the school because nobody loves me! Let's face it, alright. The only place where different social types can genuinely get along with each other is in heaven.
J.D., Heathers

It was bad, Mama. They laughed at me.
Carrie White, Carrie (1976)

You wouldn't dare try to justify yourself if you knew what I'd lost.
Harvey Dent, The Dark Knight

When I lost her, I promised myself retribution. And for twenty five years I planned my revenge against the Federation, and forgot what it was like to live a normal life. But I did not forget the pain. It's a pain that every surviving Vulcan now shares. My purpose, Christopher, is to not simply avoid the destruction of the home that I love, but to create a Romulus that exists free of the Federation. You see, only then will she be truly saved. That is why I will destroy all the remaining Federation planets, starting with yours.
Nero, Star Trek

Grace looked around at the frightened faces behind the windowpanes that were following her every step, and felt ashamed at being part of inflicting that fear. How could she ever hate them for what was at bottom merely their weakness? She would probably have done things like those that had befallen her if she had lived in one of these houses. To measure them by her own yardstick as her father put it, would she not, in all honesty, have done the same as Chuck and Vera and Ben and Mrs Henson and Tom and all these people in their houses? Grace paused. And while she did, the clouds scattered and let the moonlight through... and Dogville underwent another of those little changes of light. It was if the light, previously so merciful and faint, finally refused to cover up for the town any longer. Suddenly you could no longer imagine a berry that would appear one day on a gooseberry bush, but only see the thorn that was there right now. The light now penetrated every unevenness and flaw in the buildings and in the people. And all of a sudden she knew the answer to her question all too well: if she had acted like them, she could not have defended a single one of her actions and could not have condemned them harshly enough. It was as if her sorrow and pain finally assumed their rightful place. No. What they had done was not good enough. And if one had the power to put it to rights, it was one's duty to do so - for the sake of other towns, for the sake of humanity, and not least for the sake of the human being that was Grace herself.

T'Challa: You will destroy the world, Wakanda included!
Erik Killmonger: The world took everything away from me! Everything I ever loved! But I'mma make sure we're even.

He gave his life for his people, but he did not die. [...] That was the truth behind this terrible, burning thing. No creature in all the cosmos deserved what had happened to the Storm King.
"I'm sorry... you should not have suffered so."
Seoman Snowlock, Memory, Sorrow and Thorn

Once, there was an Ugly Barnacle. He was so ugly that everyone died. The End.
Patrick Star, narrator of "The Ugly Barnacle"

She was unaware that she was scrubbing her bloodied hands against her dress like Lady Macbeth, or that she was weeping even as she laughed, or that one hidden part of her mind was keening over her final and utter ruin. Because she was going to take them with her, and there was going to be a great burning, until the land was full of its stink.

No! You have to let me install the firewall to stop it! Or Venjix will spread beyond Alphabet Soup! No! I just wanted to go outside! No, please, it could infect the entire world!
Dr. K, Power Rangers RPM

She is in love with the devil, she's in love with Lucifer,
this is her revenge for all the years of pain and tears.
Fire is falling from the sky, she's burning down her past.
She starts a new life, to hell with Jesus Christ

She sits in her corner
Singing herself to sleep
Wrapped in all of the promises
That no one seems to keep
She no longer cries to herself,
No tears left to wash away
Just diaries of empty pages,
Feelings gone astray
But she will sing
'Till everything burns,
While everyone screams,
Burning their lies
Burning my dreams
All of this hate
And all of this pain
I'll burn it all down
As my anger reigns
'Till everything burns
—"Everything Burns" by Ben Moody and Anastacia

This world rejects me
This world threw me away
This world never gave me a chance
This world gonna have to pay
— "Burn," Nine Inch Nails

Please don't go
I want you to stay
I'm begging you please
Oh please don't leave here
I don't want you to hate
For all the hurt that you feel
The world is just illusion
trying to change you...''
— "Illusion," VNV Nation

Imagine, for a moment, a person who has faced nothing but betrayal from those who claimed only to love her, curses from those who once blessed her and obstacles at every turn, but who nonetheless manages to somehow carve out a niche for herself and to find happiness - even enlightenment. Imagine further that those who previously betrayed her, discontented with their own existences, took it upon themselves time and again to destroy what she had created for herself. Give this person the intellect of a goddess, the power of the most potent supernatural creatures you can dream of, and several millennia to develop the perfect plan for revenge, and you begin to approach the situation in which Lilith finds herself when Gehenna finally arrives.

We all deserve to die
Tell you why, Mrs. Lovett, tell you why.
Because in all of the whole human race, Mrs. Lovett
There are two kinds of men and only two
There's the one staying put in his proper place
And the one with his foot in the other one's face
Look at me, Mrs. Lovett, look at you
No, we all deserve to die
Even you, Mrs. Lovett, even I
Because the lives of the wicked should be made brief
For the rest of us death will be a relief
We all deserve to die.
And I'll never see Johanna
No, I'll never hug my girl to me - finished!
Alright! You sir, you sir, how about a shave?
Come and visit your good friend Sweeney.
You sir, too sir? Welcome to the grave.

I would never again grovel for a place in this world, instead I would forge a world that would grovel before me.
Gul'dan, Warcraft

They...The mortals art ignorant, prideful animals... They doth lie to one another, injure themselves and their fellows, and kill each other and all around them for sport! Their folly is immeasurable.
...I knoweth full very well that 'tis our duty as a god to protect the mortals. But they be not worthy of that protection! They are beyond salvation!
Fou-lu, Breath of Fire IV

Why create when it will only be destroyed? Why cling to life, knowing that you have to die? None of it will have meant anything once you do...

She was a very disturbed child. Terrible, debilitating nightmares. Hallucinations. Hysteria. She never had a chance for a normal life. It was Disler who realized she was telepathic. He speculated that she was extremely sensitive to the negative emotions of people around her. We only removed her from that chamber twice. She was fifteen when the first prototype was born. She was supposed to be comatose, but she started screaming when we induced labor, and didn't stop until the liquid filled her lungs. There are any number of plausible scientific explanations for what followed, but it was really just a question of hatred. It is the way of men to create monsters... and it is the nature of monsters to destroy their makers.
Harlan Wade, about Alma, First Encounter Assault Recon

The Overlord ( David Archer), Mass Effect 2: Overlord

I joined this group of revolutionaries to take my revenge on the world.
Sniper Wolf, Metal Gear Solid

In those days when I was used
Like a decorative doll
I was already broken a long time ago
So I wanted to destroy it all
It's a very powerful medicine
Its' effects will stay inside you forever
Now it's finally time for me to go to sleep
I'll turn from Princess Sandman into Sleeping Beauty...
Margarita Blankenheim, Gift From The Princess Who Brought Sleep

Aside from Timpani, no treasure mattered in the least to me...
Count Bleck, Super Paper Mario

People are all held in balance by what they stand to lose and what they stand to gain. The most dangerous of those men are those who have nothing to lose and nothing to gain. When you have nothing to risk, not even your future.
Youtube Commenter on Asura's Wrath episode 12, "Gods of Death"

My retribution is eternal, spirit, as is my pain. This is justice, no more.
Zathrian, Dragon Age: Origins

"Mind you, the mantle of lord interests me none. The fire-linking curse, the legacy of lords, let it all fade into nothing."
Lothric, Younger Prince, Dark Souls III

"All of you ungrateful humans, who took everything away from me, will feel my loss, and despair!"
Professor Gerald Robotnik, Sonic Adventure 2

"While I was under his control, I realised something. Egil once wished only to break the circle of suffering, he believed that, if blood was spilt now a new world would be born. But something terrible happened and now, now he is consumed with vengeance."
Gadolt talking about Egil, Xenoblade Chronicles

Fighter: I'm surprised. I mean, if I was in your shoes, I'd feel personally responsible for being unable to stop or at least heal all of this needless devastation.
White Mage: (Collapsing to knees) Personally responsible.
Fighter: The total obliteration of a city under your protection, I dunno. To me, that sounds like the kind of thing that changes a person. And then it makes you kill everyone else in your order to steal their power and use it to destroy the world so that these things don't ever happen in the first place.

There are people in this world that are driven to evil because of what their life has forced them to endure.
Rich Burlew, author of The Order of the Stick

Now Dr. Horrible is here!
To make you quake with fear!
To make the whole world kneel,
And I won't feel...

"Think of it, Batman. To never again walk on a summer's day with a hot wind in your face and a warm hand to hold. Oh, yes, I'd kill for that."

Mr. Freeze: There's enough energy here to destroy the whole compound, Batman. I suggest you find a way out.
Batman: Freeze, think! This can't be what you want. You'll only cause more pain, more suffering.
Mr. Freeze: No. I end it. When this goes... I go too.

The access code is... "Alone."
Demona, Gargoyles

Ben/Fourarms: You'd risk innocent lives just to get even with me?!
Kevin: Nobody's innocent! They just haven't had a chance to make fun of me yet!
Ben 10

"What have you done to my brethren?! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!"

"They weren't really games, you know. They were training me, turning me into a weapon, "for justice", they said. They got their weapon; I got cheated out of my childhood."
Ace, Justice League, "Epilogue"

So we're left with a kid who has superpowers, gross genetic defects, and a good reason to hate Superman. We're betting that he's going to end up a supervillain, and you know what? If he takes on Superman we think we're rooting for the kid.

Those who hate most fervently must have once loved deeply; those who want to deny the world must have once embraced what they now set on fire.
Kurt Tucholsky

When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That's the message he is sending.
