“Sometimes... sometimes I think the Asylum is a head. We're inside a huge head that dreams us all into being. Perhaps it's your head, Batman. Arkham is a looking glass... and we are you.”

Fan Works

All I knew at the time was that I had a fainting spell. While I was out, the real Red K effect came through. The thing... it... I was cloned! It cloned me, and the clone was, well, my evil side. My dark side. And it was just as real as... as real as me.

They were both Fate's mom, but only one of them was good, which made the coming battle symbolic. Maybe it was symbolic of motherhood, and how a real mother is the one who cares for the child, not the one who gives birth to her (or in this case, grows her in a cloning vat).

"There is a difference between you and me. We both looked into the abyss, but when it looked back at us, you blinked."

Cpn. Ransom: You know, Janeway's not the only Captain who can help you explore your humanity.
Seven of Nine: You would be an inferior role model.
Ransom: Janeway clung to her morality at the expense of her crew. Maybe you should learn from that mistake.
Star Trek: Voyager, "Equinox Pt. II"

Dr. Wells: ...Your powers are almost exactly like those of the Flash!
Reverse-Flash: Oh, I'm not like the Flash at all. Some would say I'm the reverse.

The Hitler Youth: It is just like ze scouts... only evil!

"If confronting a Beast brings a hunter a moment of doubt, meeting a Hero is like looking into a mirror and realizing you don't much care for the person gazing out at you."

"Hell yeah! Kojack is just evil Jack — and evil makes everything BETTER!
Kreese, MadWorld

Walton Simons: You take another step forward and here I am again, like your own reflection in a hall of mirrors.
JC Denton: That makes me one ugly son of a bitch.

"I'm glad I hit my head when I was a baby! That's why I didn't end up like you!"
Goku to Turles, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3

"We of the Sheikah tribe have long been heralded as a people of great wisdom. Our technology became the key to sealing Ganon away during the Great Calamity, some ten thousand years ago. At one point, our technology was praised as the power of the gods...but eventually the people turned on it. Turned on us. Our creations came to be viewed as a threat to the kingdom. The Sheikah became outcasts, forced into exile. Some, like us, chose to cast off our technological advances and strove to live normal lives. Others fostered a hatred towards the kingdom that shunned them. These sad souls swore their allegiance to Ganon. They now call themselves the Yiga Clan. Their sole mission is to eliminate all who stand against Ganon. Please, dear hero... be careful out there."

The Filth! The Filth! It transmits! It is like us. A flowing message. Crawling letters. A living meme. It is not us. It is anti-us, anti-luminosity that crucifies sentience.
The Buzzing, The Secret World

"I keep coming back to that tagline. 'Your Enemies Shall Define You'. 'Cause it's true, Batman has the best villains in the business beause they all reflect an aspect of Batman: Two-Face reflects his duality, Scarecrow his use of fear and psychological tactics, Poison Ivy his— er....shapely buttocks."

"This is the basic problem with any 'evil version of the hero' villain. Because the role of the villain is to be reliably defeated they cannot possibly be an equivalent to the hero, whose role is, after all, to reliably not be defeated. (This inferiority is even reflected in his name - the Master has a lesser academic degree than the Doctor)"
El Sandifer, Tardis Eruditorum

"A star turn from Julie Graham who has to step into the series and out-Sarah Jane Elisabeth Sladen. To her credit she is confident, stylish, resourceful and winning and it’s a long way into the story before you even suspect that Ruby is up to no good...There are very few top notch villains in Doctor Who these days but the way Ruby enjoys torturing Sarah Jane both physically and emotionally puts her up on a pedestal. The idea of Ruby taking Sarah Jane’s place but aiding the alien invaders rather than fighting them is so delicious I wish we had the time to watch that in action."

"Elektra works well as a concept for the same reason that Sean Bean as Alec Travelyn worked well...she’s the very concept of a Bond girl twisted and distorted. Objectified and abused, treated as a pawn in a game played between Renard and her father, she wasn’t ever treated as a person in her own right. Although obviously not taken to the same extremes, Elektra endured the most cynical version of the treatment regularly afforded Bond girls — as if she was nothing more than leverage or a body to warm a bed. Bond was never brutal to his conquests, but he used them all the same. Elektra has had enough of being played, and seeks to be a player in her own right."

"I believe Dust is thinking what I’m thinking,” Ahrah said suddenly. “Dust was born of the wind and earth, leaving the final two elements, fire and water. Steam is born of those two elements. He could very well be similar to Dust."

"He's the perfect nemesis for the little brother. Mario is brave and valiant, so he gets Bowser to match strength with. Luigi is fearful and more of a thinker, so King Boo gives him something to overcome, but also a challenge that Mario would struggle with. The hero fights the dragon, the thinker fights his fears."
The Green Scorpion, Top Ten Video Game Ghosts

"It would appear you are the appropriate Yin to my Yang, good wizard."
