Robo: Oh, no. We're not trapped in here with them. They're trapped in here with Jenkins.
Kirito: I dunno... I'm pretty worried about Asuna...
(cut to a dropped walkie-talkie in a dark corridor beneath a flickering light)
Voice on Radio: Bravo, come in! Do you have visual on the prisoner?! I repeat, do you... Oh, lord... IT'S IN THE VENTS!!
(inhuman snarls and sounds of carnage)
Baron Von Strucker: Can we hold them?!
HYDRA Mook: They're the Avengers...
Harry Dresden: Afraid of what?
Molly: Of you, Harry. You could find anything in this town, but you never even noticed the shadow you cast. [...] Every time you defied someone, every time you came out on top against things you couldn't possibly have beaten, your name grew. And they feared that name. There were other cities to prey on - cities that didnt have the mad wizard Dresden defending them. They feared you.
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable
Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible
Master of war
In seconds, the Russians were scattered, leaving the Mourners and us behind. Their leader, once he returned to his human form, saluted us, and gave the team a signal. Then, the Mourners turned and walked back into the desert, leaving us all alone in the night, a night that seemed a little darker than before.
God help me, for that was the first and only time in my life I felt sorry for the Commies.
When we woke up, we found our leader beaten to a pulp with severe burns, and the prisoner gone. All she left behind was a message, written on the wall of our safehouse with the edge of her blade: Stay away from my friends. We went to check on everyone in the guys inner circle, his girlfriend, his sister, anyone in the neighborhood, but we couldnt find who she was.
That was how I learnt to not underestimate Nobles. They might look all rainbows and sunshine, but that Light they keep rambling about? Yeah, it really gives them power. And when you give them reason to unleash that power on you, they are fuckin terrifying.
"I think that turian they've got is Archangel! How the hell are we gonna kill him?"
"Shit! There's a prothean over there!"
"They're above us! Behind us, too! And they've still got the krogan! Someone kill him!"
Caiman: Do you copy?! Emergency maneuvers!
Falco Lombardi: Too late! Game over, pal!
Caiman: They've broken through the first line!
Fox McCloud: We're gonna break through that fleet!
Caiman: They're through the second line!
Commander: Fire! FIRE! Don't let them through!
Caiman: The last line has been breached!
Commander: These guys are CRAZY! Dang, deploy it now!
Any crazy stories you've heard about him are probably true. He breaks bricks with his bare hands. He can leap thirty feet into the air if he chooses not to fly. Some even claim that he's not a Toad at all - that he's somethin' else, somethin' from beyond.
Shufgar: The human is armed, and heavily boosted. You are to terminate with extreme prejudice.
Tank Pirate: Understood. Geaff ouAAARGH--
Kevyn: Hello again, Commodore. I have a tank now. It's very shiny, but there's an ugly stain on the upholstery.
Not everyone gets PTSD from traumatic events.
Because he is the traumatic event.
DOOM: Demons are stuck in a room with you!
So you decide to deal with this like you would with any other pest problems — you put out some traps, like spike pits, modify a couple of your robots with .22 rifles, etc. The way you'd deal with any rodent, really. Soon enough, the hedgehog gets himself impaled, and you're done. Or so you think. Soon after, despite having quite clearly been drained of his precious bodily fluids, he's back and trashing your robots again. Maybe the other one was some sort of decoy? No matter, you're taking this into your own hands. You modify your ride, Mad Max-style, adding a couple of guns, some spikes, missiles, slowly swinging giant balls, that kind of stuff. Then you roll. You meet the hedgehog and after a brief struggle where he manages to make one or two lucky hits on spots you haven't really bothered armoring, you make him into thin gruel. This time, you're sure he's done for.
How wrong you are. Soon after, he's back. You can't believe it. You try to kill him yourself once more, but this time he seems to know where to strike. He seems to know when to strike. He seems to know when you'll strike. Once you realize that, you try to change your attack patterns, but it's too late, he's done enough damage to blow up your vehicle, and you barely escape with your life. For the next few days, he follows you, destroying everything you throw at him, and it's obvious he won't stop until he gets you. You can't sleep. You watch as he destroys everything you've done to help people — one after another, chemical plants, oil refineries, amusement parks, all you've built, gets blown up by this satanic, unholy, immortal demon from the deepest pits of Hell. When you do manage to take him out, he's back within hours.
Eventually, as you're trying to escape to the one place where you think you're safe — Space — he defeats one of your latest creations, and for the first time, you're face-to-face with him. There's no steel plate protecting you. There's no vertical distance. He's there, staring at you with those empty, demonic eyes.
You run like you've never run before. You just fucking run.
Ben Tennyson/Ghostfreak You want to see something really scary? (opens his cloak, revealing his true face. Zombozo falls to the ground and turns into a cowering wreck) Ooooh, now don't tell me you are afraid of good old Ghostfreak?
Zombozo: P-please! No more!
Spider-Man: Making a request? Recalling someone else [Uncle Ben] from tonight?!
Burglar: I didn't mean to- (Spider-Man sticks him to a wall)
Spider-Man: Save your excuses! ALL I WANT TO HEAR IS YOUR SCREAMS!!
