Hey... That's the Izayoi! Drop that thing right now, you idiot!
Ragna the Bloodedge's win quote against Tsubaki Yayoi, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift

[The Izayoi] is a vile thing. I have heard tales of its power during the great war, but those who wielded it never met pleasant ends. The end that awaits those who lose their light is... cold.

A tear spilled down Callahan's right cheek, then another. He wiped them away absently. "I've never dared handle it, but I've seen it. Felt its power. Christ the Man Jesus help me, I have Black Thirteen under the floorboards of my church. And it's come alive. Do you understand me?" He looked at them with his wet eyes. "It's come alive."

It was mine now, something secret
Something precious and rare

Come with me and I'll make all your wishes come true
Lifting the chains of oppression from you
Wiping away the lines carved in your face
Take the Relic from this place...
Symphony X, "The Relic"

Revenant: Turn back, mortals. Death and darkness are all that await you in this forsaken vault.
Arthas: I doubt there's anything down here more terrifying than what we've faced already.
Revenant: Believe what you will, boy. You Shall Not Pass!.
(turning back is of course not an option)
Revenant: Turn away... before it's... too late...
Arthas: Still trying to protect the sword, are you?
Revenant: No... trying to protect you... from it...

If Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees got married and had a baby, your ring would be the baby!
