Lord Hater: I have mangled the minds of millions! I have tempted forth torrential tides of tears! I have reduced the richest republics to rubble and ruin! Because I am the greatest in all the galaxy!!
- Egopolis: Lord Hater tried to do this to the Planet Bingleborp in "The Greatest." Hater's a bit of an egomaniac, as evidenced by all the designs (and theme song) on his ship.
