Quotes / Nobody Calls Me "Chicken"!

Go To

The Boulder: The Boulder feels conflicted about fighting a young, blind girl.
Toph: Sounds to me like you're scared!
* beat*
The Boulder: The Boulder is over his conflicted feelings, and is now ready to bury you in a rockalanche!

Seto: What if I said "bawk-bawk" and made arm movements comparing you to a chicken?
Gozaburo: Noooo! Anything but that!

Mirage Raphael: Shredder! Do you fear us?!
Utrom Shredder: You speak my name, but you do not know me! I am Ch'rell, Oroku Saki, Duke Acureds, the one true Shredder! I am a destroyer of worlds, and I FEAR NO ONE!

"Nobody calls Pan a coward and lives!"

Lobo: You threw one solid punch when I showed up, but you've been pulling'em ever even since. What's wrong? Scared to see what happens if you really cut loose?
Supergirl: (thinking as her eyes glow red) He thinks I'm weak. He thinks I won't do it...

Asuka rolled her eyes. "Stupid Shinji, just knock on the door."
He balked. "Why do I have to do it? You're the impetuous one, you do it."
She flushed, irritated. "Damn it, Shinji…"
"Hey," he said, "I'm just as nervous as you are, you know!"
"Tch," she said. "Coward."
Shinji's brows knit. "I am not!" His fist clenched in determination, and he raised his hand and knocked on the door. He glanced at her sidelong. "Why does that still work?" he grumbled.
She raised her arms. "Who can say?" she asked, smirking at him.

Yuma: So is that a no? I guess that means you're just a big CHICKEN!
Shark: Chicken...? Do you know what happened to the last person who called me "chicken?"
Yuma: Something... uh, bad?
Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL (or at least, the dub)

Supergirl: Let me explain, for those of you who weren’t born where we were. The Personal Combat Challenge is a form of military conduct that was implemented on Krypton. It allows a soldier to make a challenge to another soldier, regarding personal battle. If the challenge is accepted, nobody else can interfere in the fight. I’m challenging Zol-Am right here, right now. The rest of you, back off. Nobody on my side or your side will fight till we’re done. (putting her hands on her hips) If your commander is too scared to face me one-on-one, I’ll understand.[...]
Zol-Am: R** damn you!

"Would you like to punish me, Wonder Woman?" she cooed. "Would you like to try your famous Amazon strength against my mere Hatorian body?"
"You know the answer, coward," said Princess Diana. "But unchain me now, and I'll let you have the first three blows. If your might is all you claim it is, then that should be enough, should it not?" Diana plastered a sneer on her face, trying to incite the woman to rage.
Badra replied, "I am not so foolish as to relinquish my own advantage, Diana. Held by those man-joined chains, your power is negated. Freed, you might be a threat to me... so the fetters will remain until the time of your execution. Or should I say, your murder?"

Kara stopped at the warp-gate and looked behind her. Satan Girl had stopped as well, less than a mile behind her. To her credit, she wasn't stupid. She knew that Supergirl was leading her on. And, having Kara's memories, she knew where she was headed.
<That is the anti-matter universe,> sent Satan Girl.
<Oh, very good,> mocked Kara, smiling like a teacher tutoring her most backward pupil. <Now, if you'll just join me here, I can finish you right off.>
The villainess didn't budge. <It'll blow us both to bits if we touch any substance there without force-shields or matter-conversion,> she sent. <I can just wait you out. You'll come back, or you'll be atomized. Either way, I win.>
<Oh, will you?>, asked Kara. <I thought for certain that you wanted to tear me apart with your own hands. Except it hasn't been that easy, has it? Maybe you're just not up to it, after all... since you're just a pretty pathetic copy of me.>
Satan Girl's expression of hatred, which was about the only one she owned, intensified. <YOU...> she began, and that was all she could get out.
<Just one more thing, darling,> sent Kara. <I didn't want to have to tell you this, but we killed Mordru. He's dead. Hope you didn't get attached to him too much.>
At that, Supergirl knew she had succeeded.

Deathbird: Do not tempt me overmuch, woman. Thus far I have shown you mercy. I could bring you to trial lacking your eyes or tongue, or both, and nothing would be said about it so long as you could speak or write your responses. You try my patience.
Warbird: So far, Deathbird, all you’ve shown me is cowardice. Way back when, you weren’t afraid to face me one-on-one, mano y mano, with both my hands untied and you armed with those claws and a spear. I may have beaten you, but you gave me a hell of a fight both times. Now you talk about maiming me while I’ve got both arms locked up. That isn’t the mark of a monarch or a warrior. That’s just the mark of a coward.
Gladiator: Te’ Warbird, have a care. Even I cannot protect you from everything.
Warbird: Maybe she wants you to protect her from me. Ever think of that, Gladiator? Maybe she just doesn’t have what she used to, when she was a fighter.
Deathbird: For such impudence, I would strip another’s flesh from her face. Then I would let them bleed to death in their bonds.
Warbird: If you do that, everybody here will know you for a coward. They may not say it to your face, but they’ll know it in their hearts. You will, too.
Deathbird: Your words would have cost another her tongue, perhaps her throat. Do you still call me coward?
Warbird: More important, Majestrix, is what you call yourself.

Brandon : You want to win that bad?! You're just a coward!
Ash : ( From the inside of the King of Pokelantis ) Coward?!
King of Pokelantis: What did you call me?
Brandon: Coward! You heard right!
Ash: (Breaking free from the Possession) No way! No one EVER calls me coward!
Pokémon "Battling the Enemy Within!"
