"I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High."
The King Of Babylon, Isaiah, 14:13-14

"Not even God can stop me now!"
Director Kakuzawa, Elfen Lied

At the age of five, Skagra decided empathetically that god did not exist. This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or despair. Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, Wait a second. That means there's a situation vacant.
— The opening of the novelisation of Doctor Who S17 E6 "Shada"

"How can the Golden Goddesses hope to stop the very one who wields the power that they created to sustain this world? In all their self-proclaimed 'wisdom,' the goddesses did not create the Triforce with the ability for it to distinguish between good or evil, and so I may do as I please with it! And since I am the one who holds it, I do not fear their wrath, but rather I curse their very names! Curse Din and her power, for it is weakness! Curse Nayru and her wisdom, for it is foolishness! And curse Farore and her courage, for it is cowardice!"

"Everything in creation is flawed. Humans don't need to be mentioned. Air, intent, and even time. My eyes can see the death of things. They're special, like yours. So I can kill anything that lives. Even if that thing is God."
Ryougi Shiki, The Garden of Sinners

"Why, I bet this is a better three-bean salad than God could make!"

Hacker: What has Sir Arnold to fear, anyway? He's got all the honours he could want, surely.
Bernard: Well, naturally he has his 'G'.
Hacker: 'G'?
Bernard: Yes, you get your 'G' after your 'K'.
Hacker: You speak in riddles, Bernard.
Bernard: Well, take the Foreign Office. First, you get the CMG, then the KCMG, then the GCMG. The Commander of the Order of St. Michael and St. George, Knight Commander of St. Michael and St. George, Knight Grand Cross of St. Michael and St. George. Of course, in the service, CMG stands for "Call Me God." And KCMG for "Kindly Call Me God."
Hacker: What does GCMG stand for?
Bernard: "God Calls Me God."

"I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him; but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet"

Aeron "Damphair": We shall have no king but from the kingsmoot. No godless man—
Euron: -may sit the Seastone Chair, aye. As it happens as I have oft sat upon the Seastone Chair of late. It raises no objections. Who knows more of gods than I? Horse gods and fire gods, gods made of gold with gemstone eyes, gods carved of cedar wood, gods chiseled into mountains, gods of empty air... I know them all. I have seen their peoples garland them with flowers, and shed the blood of goats and bulls and children in their names. And I have heard the prayers, in half a hundred tongues. Cure my withered leg, make the maiden love me, grant me a healthy son. Save me, succor me, make me wealthy... protect me! Protect me from mine enemies, protect me from the darkness, protect me from the crabs inside my belly, from the horselords, from the slavers, from the sellswords at my door. Protect me from the Silence. Godless? Why, Aeron, I am the godliest man ever to raise sail! You serve one god, Damphair, but I have served ten thousand. From Ib to Asshai, when men see my sails, they pray.
Aeron: They pray to trees and golden idols and goat-headed abominations. False gods...
Euron: Just so and for that sin I kill them all. I spill their blood upon the sea and sow their screaming women with my seed. Their little gods cannot stop me, so plainly they are false gods. I am more devout than even you, Aeron. Perhaps it should be you who kneels to me for blessing.

"Bow before your new God, and be spared."
The Elder One, Dragon Age: Inquisition

"Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you will remember if we were good men or bad, why we fought, or why we died. No, all that matters is that two stood against many, that's what's important. Valor pleases you, Crom, so grant me one request, grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to hell with you!"

"If God was a villain...He'd be me."
Benedict, Last Action Hero

Sara: You don't know when to quit, do you!
Phillips: Defeat would be unbecoming of divinity.
Yuuna: And now you think you're a god. Has your arrogance no limits?
Phillips: Arrogance? I speak the unvarnished truth. I told you, didn't I? I am God's Own Chosen, hand-picked to enforce His will, enact His justice upon this blighted world. Humanity has never accepted me among them, and now I know why: it is the nature of evil to fear and despise good. Its defiance and hatred of me is proof that I am righteous! Once I've killed you, and everyone else in this forsaken city, I will move on, unrelenting. The wages of sin will be swift and inescapable death, until humanity lies sobbing and broken before Him, cursing themselves for every sin they've ever committed. And once victory is mine, I will be rewarded…rewarded beyond the dreams of mortals. I will be granted dominion over the highest spheres of Heaven. I will be beloved by God above any other…ruling alongside Him as an equal…or perhaps even MORE than that! Yes…I'll have done what the host of Heaven, what the Almighty Himself had failed to do! It's only natural I would be…!
(Mai's Kali chucks a sword through his chest)
Mai: I am so done listening to your drivel.

"Thank God for me."

"Sometimes I am God. If I say a man dies, he dies that same day."

Henry Frankenstein: Look! It's moving. It's alive. It's alive... It's alive, it's moving, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, it's alive, IT'S ALIVE!

Henry Frankenstein: Oh, in the name of God! Now I know what it feels like to be God!

"If God created this world in six days, then I will destroy it in 60 minutes, and create a paradise."

"Blasphemy? Before what? God? A God repulsed by the miserable humanity He created in His own image? I will not be shackled by the failures of your God. The only blasphemy is to wallow in insignificance. I have taken refuse of your God's failures and I have triumphed. There! THERE is my creation!"
Dr. Herbert West, Bride of Re-Animator

Howard Phillips: God damn you!
