"They killed her master, now she'll kill everyone."
— Description for the Black Lagoon Story Arc, "Roberta's Blood Trail"

Giorno: The mold... It's spreading instantaneously!
Bucciarati: That's impossible. There are three million people living in Rome. This is nothing like that fishing village! And there are members of the organization in Rome. This would be a hit to the boss, too.
Giorno: This guy doesn't care. He's enjoying this! At this rate, everyone in Rome will die! No, this guy's not going to stop, even if it spreads further than that!

Rhodey: What is this? What the hell's happening?
Steve: Oh god...

"Everybody, everybody, everybody living now
Everybody, everybody, everybody fucks
Everybody, everybody, everybody living now
Everybody, everybody, everybody sucks
Everybody, everybody, everybody living now
Everybody, everybody, everybody cries
Everybody, everybody, everybody living now
Everybody, everybody, everybody dies"
System of a Down, "Violent pornography"

"In the fires of ancient cosmic destiny
Evil will rise
And of all the legendary warriors
None will survive"
Gloryhammer - "The Fires of Ancient Cosmic Destiny"

Roose Bolton: Our goat should have consulted the Tarbecks or the Reynes. They might have warned him how your lord father deals with betrayals.
Jaime Lannister: There are no Tarbecks or Reynes.
Roose Bolton: My point precisely.

"It's not a good story unless the hero dies."
Varric, Dragon Age II

"You don't beat this thing, Ripley. You can't. All you can do is refuse to engage. You've got to wipe out every trace. Destroy any clue. Stop its infection from spreading. Make sure there's no chance of the human race ever making contact with it again. Because the moment it makes contact, it's won."
Marlow, Alien: Isolation

"Oh god, you're right! There are still a few characters I haven't killed yet. I almost forgot about them."

    Web Original 

"If you were writing the first words of a novel version of Back to the Future, how would you do it? Maybe you’d introduce the concept of time being important, like the film did with all them crazy clocks. Maybe instead you’d introduce Marty and Doc, show who they are and what their relationship is. Well, anyway, you’re totally wrong!

The correct answer is to KILL EVERYBODY."

"No. No, the lady in the Coke ad does not shoot him. I know I spend every finale of every show waiting for someone to get shot. When the clock starts running out on the hour, I get very anxious and start screaming at the TV, "Hey! When’s the shooting begin?" And then, no shooting. I feel deprived."
Drew Magary on Mad Men

"So, I guess if you're making a movie and you're stuck for that perfect ending, just kill everybody. Hey, it worked for Tarantino, right?"

"You may notice a pattern near the end of the series: ER'YBODY GON' DIE."

"Whilst it is amateurishly directed (it feels like the clock was about to strike ten and they had to get it in the can as quickly as possible) I rather like the furious energy of the Doctor taking on the Cybermen and murdering them all out with a weapon. It feels like things have gotten wildly out of control and the only way to restore a sense of normality is to kill the lot of them. Is it the only way this story could have been concluded? No, but [Eric] Saward has once against boxed himself into a corner with too much going on and the only way he can see out is the murder everybody. It is becoming a habit on the show."

"Even though it set a box office record for a memorial day opening and got two thumbs up from Ebert and Roeper (Ebert praised its absurdity, which I think is the only way to go), X-Men 3 was kind of a disaster. It left the franchise in a weird place, with half of the cast dead or de-powered and the other half in this weird limbo of stuff that would need to be addressed before anything could actually happen. Like, they’re almost left having to go with an action movie starring Kelsey Grammer and Ellen Page if they did another sequel."

"This is the fanfic in which the Transformers will all die."

"You know, it's kind of a waste of time to create new characters for The Punisher's books. If they're Frank's enemies, they get shot dead after an appearance or two. If they're Frank's friends, they get shot dead after an appearance or two."
Marvel Year In Review 1993

"George R. R. Martin, Joss Whedon, and Quentin Tarantino walk into a bar. Everyone you've ever loved dies."
Internet Joke

    Western Animation 

"Once there was an ugly barnacle. He was so ugly that everyone died! The end! :D"
Patrick Star, Spongebob Squarepants

    Real Life 
"You will die. Your people will die. J. J. Abrams will die. You will ALL...DIE."

"No one will be alive by the last book. In fact, they all die in the fifth. The sixth book will be just a thousand-page description of snow blowing across the graves..."
George R. R. Martin, joking (we hope) about the end of A Song of Ice and Fire
