Wham Line: Web Animation
  • Cow of the Wild has several:
    Marra: (to Lupis) Great Creator... I remember you now! You're a son of Balder!
    Fang: If it could get out, it only makes sense that we could get in!
  • Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction has two near the end, one of them the final line of the season.
    • "Church, there's no such thing as ghosts. You're one of them. You're an AI. You...are the Alpha."
    • "Sincerely yours, the former director of Project Freelancer, Doctor Leonard Church."
    • "Buenos Dias, cockbites. Guess whose back?" It's Tex.
    • "[Wyoming]'s right. This is Freelancer Tex, broadcasting on an open channel."
    • Washington drops this bombshell in Reconstruction: "You actually think you're real soldiers?! You guys are nothing!"
    • "Hey, Simmons? I think he shot me too."
    • "What in the hell makes you think that I'm going to ask for it?"
    • From the penultimate episode of Revelation: "[Tex] died in her real life, and that's all the Director ever remembered of her. So now, no matter how tough she is, no matter how hard she fights, she's always going to fail, because that's what she's based on. No matter what she's doing, or what she's trying to accomplish, just when her goal is within her reach, it gets yanked away. Every. Single. Time."
    • Season Nine does quite a few of these, but the most powerful is undoubtedly in the final episode of the season: "No. I'm not going to say "I love you." I'm going to say "I forget you." I'm letting you go."
    • "You're gonna help me kill the Director."
    • "I have a sister." An interesting example: for the characters, it's a pretty low-key Reveal/"Wait, what?" moment. For the audience members (who have a lot more information than the characters), it sends the HSQ meter spiking. Shit is getting real.
    • When Washington and Carolina are discussing the Meta's rampage, this exchange comes up:
    Washington: "It wasn't your fault."
    Carolina: "But it was my AI."
    • "But don't say goodbye. I hate goodbyes."
    • "I just remembered... everything."
    • "May I suggest Flowers?" "You mean Agent Florida?"
    • "Good. I'll be there before you know it."
  • From Strong Bad Email #200:
    Strong Bad: "D-d-d-dear Homestar??" WTC??
  • RWBY:
    Jaune: I was never accepted into Beacon.
    • Also:
    Weiss: You want to know why I despise the White Fang? It's because they're a bunch of liars, thieves, and murderers!
    Blake: Well, maybe we were just tired of being pushed around!
