"It's important to note how Pokey refers to Giygas during the battle, especially since the English version doesn't quite convey it. In the original Japanese, Pokey saliently drops the "-sama" honorific from Giygas's name, which is a tremendously audacious and disrespectful thing to do. Pokey no longer considers Giygas his boss or his better, but as something more of an attack dog or prop. This is no longer about what Giygas wants. Between the two antagonists, Pokey is the only one with any control or awareness of his actions, and what he wants is to see Ness beaten and humiliated — even if it means destroying all existence in the process."

Bane: And this gives you power over me?

Hai Fat:May I remind you that you work for me? I took you on to be an occasional consultant, nothing more. I did not pay you to interfere in my affairs. Is that understood? Now, return to the plant and don't leave there without my permission. I now regret having even considered employing your services, but that is beside the point. Bond doesn't know you; he's never seen you. But he knows me. That's the problem.
Francisco Scaramanga: That's no problem.
[Scaramanga shoots Fat dead; one of Fat's aides rushes to investigate]
Francisco Scaramanga: Mr. Fat has just resigned. I am the new Chairman of the Board.

Tyrion: You just sent the most powerful man in Westeros to bed without his supper.
