What do the mythology examples have to do with speeches? Are they on the wrong page or just very poorly explained?

A seperate trope for De-motivational speeches?

Sometimes, I've seen this trope subverted very strongly. In Knights of the Old Republic II, when asked to set up defenses, you can sabotage various things, including a speech to the defenders.

My favorite part of that speech is when the protagonist can say that it really hurts to be shot between the legs, so try not to get shot!

I am utterly surprised that the page quote isn't the Crispin's Day speech. Do people really think a mere video game quote is a better example of a Rousing Speech than that?

Page quotes should be relatively short. The Crispin's Day speech is great, but too long. Lots of the great ones are too long. That's why there's a Quotes Wiki page.

I think at least the last few lines of the Crispin's Day speech should be the quote. Either that or something from Churchill.
