Mao: (to Suzaku) Your good intentions are just for your own self-satisfaction! You're just a naive boy who wants to be punished!
Lelouch: MAO! (Hypnotic Eyes) NEVER SPEAK AGAIN!
Code Geass, giving the most literal Shut Up, Hannibal! in years

You're like a kid with a toy. You're the one that can't tell fantasy from reality. You're the one who lives in the little dots of light. If you want to dream, just do it by yourself!
Spike Spiegel to Dr. Londes, Cowboy Bebop

Light Yagami: Since Kira has appeared six years ago, wars have stopped and global crime rates have been reduced by over 70%. But, it's not enough. This world is still rotten with too many rotten people! Somebody has to do this! When I first got that notebook all those years ago, I knew I had to do it. No, I was the only one who could. I understood that killing people was a crime. There was no other way! The world had to be fixed! A purpose given to me! Only I could do it. Who else could have done it and come this far?! Will they keep going?! The only one, who can create a new world, is me.
Near: ...No. You're just a murderer, Light Yagami. And this notebook is the deadliest weapon in the history of mankind. If you had been a normal person and had used this notebook once out of curiosity, you would have been surprised and scared of what had happened, regretted what you had done, and never used this notebook again. To speak of extremes, I can actually understand those who would use this notebook for their personal interests and kill a couple of people, and even think that they're normal. But you yielded to the power of the notebook and the Shinigami and have confused yourself with a god. In the end, you're nothing more than a crazy Serial Killer. That's all you are. Nothing more... and nothing less.

What I did... was beyond forgiveness. I don't need anyone to tell me that. No matter what I do, I can't change the past. But what I can save Jeri! And let me tell you, no talking eyeball's gonna stop me! CORONA DESTROYER! How's it feel to be on the other end of the whupping stick?!
Beelzemon, Digimon Tamers

We do deserve to exist! (slams his fist into the D-Reaper's chest) You don't!
Gallantmon, in response to the D-Reaper's Humans Are Bastards speech, Digimon Tamers

Merged Zamasu: Potara earrings? Does the mimicry have no end? You pathetic mortals always try to emulate the divine. And why is that? Is it because we gods are so wondrous? Are you coveting our undeniable beauty? I understand, yet it's so tragic. Your mimicry is doomed to fail! Acts of gods are beautiful because we are inherently pure, while mortal endeavors will inevitably become wicked—corrupted and marred by sin!
[is quickly punched in the face and kicked a good distance by Vegito]
Vegito: Sorry to be rude, but you left yourself completely open. Now come on and give me your best shot; I'm tired of listening to you preach. If you want be bowed at your feet, you'll have to do it by force.

Merged Zamasu: How dare you strike a god?! And retaliate against justice?!
Future Trunks: I don't give a damn about you! OR YOUR SO-CALLED JUSTICE!! [slices Merged Zamasu vertically in half from the crotch up]

Black Shadow: I will not die!! Nor will my dream!!!
Captain Falcon: Falcon PUNCH!! (punches Black Shadow in the face, bringing both of them to the reactor explosion)

Thinly-Veiled-Son-Goku: A soul should not be placed inside a doll!
Ryoma Nagare: Don't talk shit that I can't understand!
New Getter Robo

Bansai: Gintoki Sakata... you are a ghost. You once tried to protect this country along with Shinsuke and others. You are obsessed and unable to let go. You are a living ghost. There is no longer anything for you to protect! Ghosts should go back to where they belong! (slashes Gintoki into his shoulder... only for Gintoki to use Bansai's own strings to tie him to the helicopter with his sword)
Gintoki: Clean out your ears and listen up! I've never once fought for the sake of this cheap country. I couldn't care less if the country or the samurai fell. I have always... Then and now... ! What I protect... has never changed! (sends Bansai crashing into the ground)
Gintama, Shinsengumi Rebellion Arc

One of the things that I, Rohan Kishibe, like the most is to find someone who thinks they're hot shit and then say "NO!" to their faces.

Jaren: Don't be too arrogant...
Yoshimori: Shut up! We want to be arrogant, what about it!

Ragyo: Are you saying you don't mind stabbing your mother in the back to see it through?
Satsuki: If what I've done today makes me a villain, I'll embrace it gladly. I'll use any means necessary to bring down a monster like you!

If you want to stop the things that you don't like, all you need to do is close your eyes and plug up your ears.

Bright Noa: (on firing the Gryps II Colony Laser) Chairman Ronan. If you insist on carrying out this act, I will be an enemy of the Federation from this moment onwards.
Ronan Marcenas: Spare me your bluffs. You have a family, too. Are you sure you want to drag your children into this?
Bright Noa: I only want to be a father whose children aren't ashamed of him.

Teeki: Fate is cruel, yes. But consider! Most people are resigned to their fates. There are only a few exceptions. Only those who, by some miracle, are blessed with talent. They alone can change fate. The others merely shuffle along. Sped along by their upbringing, yanked by mortal ties... This is life, a horrible meaningless curse. Your friend learned that for himself. All of his effort? Meaningless!!!
Roji: That's a lie! It wasn't meaningless! I won't believe it! I won't! Enchu was hurt! He couldn't bear his grief! (dispels Julio's curse)

Don't be tricked, you idiot! He's the bad guy!
Anita, R.O.D the TV

Maybe there've been times were I've been pissed and hated things, but it wasn't from this work. My dad's a no-show, my mom's a lush and school sucks, but this job is the one damn thing I'm good at. If all the crap in my life hasn't screwed me up yet, then neither will this and neither will you.
Yusuke Urameshi to Sensui, Yu Yu Hakusho

For me, fighting has been an end in and of itself. You over-complicate things, I don't!
Yusuke Urameshi, Yu Yu Hakusho (Viz manga translation)

Naoto: What you're spouting isn't logic! It's just the egotistical ranting of a lunatic! Humans need each other to survive. If you severe all ties with society, of course life becomes difficult!
The Culprit: You're kids! What the hell do you know?!
Yukiko: No! You're the child! You hate your miserable life, but you don't want to die? You're not a grown man taking control of things, you're a child throwing a tantrum!
The Culprit: SHUT UP!
Yosuke: I'm gonna put this bluntly: there's nothing special about you at all. The only thing you are is a lame-ass thug.
The Culprit: Shut up. Shut the hell up! I'll kill you. I'll kill you! I'll kill you just like I did everyone else!!
Yu: That's not the way it's gonna happen.
The Culprit: SHUT UP!!
Yu: You will play for your crimes.
The Culprit: You're a stain on the Earth, you little brat! Shut up and die already! You can't deny everything I've said! Stop denying the truth and JUST DIE!
Yu: We've accepted the truth. To get here, we've come face to face with things we never wanted to see.
The Culprit: C-c-cut the tough guy act! You pampered high school brats don't know shit about suffering! You can't begin to know what I've been through!
Yu: You think you're the only one who's had it rough? That's naive.
The Culprit: No more playing around. Its time to die...cause there's no way in hell I'm losing to you!
Yu: You need to face reality!

Knives: You're not a human being. You're a plant.
Vash: I know that.
Knives: You're a superior being!
Vash: I disagree.

Chisaki: Because people are endowed with these things called "Quirks," they can dream. Dream that maybe they can be someone that matters. They're all sick in the head! So wipe that smile off your face! Thanks to the power of that girl you were trying to save, everything you've worked so hard to cultivate...has been reduced to naught!
Mirio attacks anyway
Mirio: Focus on your opponent, and predict their next action...! Nothing...! Nothing I've done up to now will ever be useless! I will always be Lemillion!

I stayed quiet and listened to you blabbering on and on...! Idiots don't know how to summarize things, so they go on forever. Basically, "we want to make people hate us, so join us, please!" Right?! It's pointless. See... I've been won over by the way All Might looks when he wins. You all can say what you want, but... Nothing will change my mind about that.
Bakugou to Shigaraki, My Hero Academia

All For One: [...] I do despise you after all. You crushed all of my comrades with those fists, one by one, and the world sang your praises as the "symbol of peace". The vista you view standing atop the mound of our sacrificed must be nice, surely? [throws a punch at All Might, which he deflects] I won't let you fight as "freely" as you'd like. Heroes always have so many things that need protecting-
All Might: Shut up. That's how you always toy with others! You destroy them! You rob them! You use them and dominate them! All the while sneering down from your wanton perch at those who live their day to day lives! I WILL NEVER, EVER ALLOW SUCH EVIL! [PUNCH]

Sugou/Oberon: An ID that outranks mine?! That's impossible! This is my world! I'm the creator! I'm its ruler! Its king! Its god!
Kirito: No, I don't think so. You stole everything in this world. Everything! Including its people! You're nothing but a king of thieves, sitting alone on your stolen throne!

Anti-Spiral: That is the path that leads to extinction! Why can’t you see the pathetic limitation of the Spiral races?!
Simon: No, that’s YOUR limitation! You sit here, closed off, locking away other lifeforms like you’re some kind of king?! That’s nobody’s limitation but your own!

    Comic Books 

Vladimir Giurescu: Blessed moon... Mother goddess... See how Giurescu becomes himself again. Kill him, he does not die. Burn him, he will not be consumed by fire. Truly, he is much more than human, more like unto God
Hellboy: Oh, shut up! When I do you, you'll be done!
Giurescu: Insolent beast! Troglodyte!
Hellboy: Big talk for a guy with no pants.
Hellboy: Wake The Devil

The Joker: It's all a joke! Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for... it's all a monstrous, demented gag! So why can't you see the funny side? Why aren't you laughing?
Batman: Because I've heard it before... and it wasn't funny the first time.

Lex Luthor: Even through the dust... I see your eyes. I know of all your remarkable "visions." But let me tell you what you can't see... My soul. And there's not a soul in Metropolis who watched Hope drop the monster, and given the same opportunity? Wouldn't have done it themselves. Not a soul. How does that make you feel... You arrogant alien bastard?
Superman: (silence)
Lex Luthor: Your silence speaks volumes. You understand my words but you refuse to believe what they mean. Is that because you see something in humanity that in truth isn't there, or that you're blind to what truly is?
Superman: (silence)
Lex Luthor: Say something, goddamnit!
Superman: You're wrong... I can see your soul.

Blackstarr: I may be undecided as to the old woman's fate, but yours is certain... death!
Supergirl: Listen — I've been romping through the cosmos since I was 15... And threats like THAT don't even make me work up a sweat!

Mr. Mxyzptlk: I'm Mxyzptlk! Holder of the five keys that unlock the fifty-two layers of Hyper-reality! My mind has become one with all ten possible dimensions! Who are you to challenge me?!
Supergirl: I'm Supergirl! Defender of Earth! You humiliated me in school. You attacked my friends! You took me from my family! I have all the power you ever dreamed of! My Kryptonian cells are supercharged with the light of a million billion suns! And I'm not going to let you destroy the 3rd dimension!

Lobo: Gotta... hand it to ya... didn't see that... comin'... but... I've got some... bad news... idiot... I heal. Gimme... ten minutes... I'll be good as new... and you'll be dead. Just like the rest of the idiots from Krypton.
Superman: I'm not from Krypton. I'm from Kansas.

Morph: Oh shut up! Bad enough we have to put up with your leather-queen butt-aping Doc Strange - but all the self-important, "gonna rule the world, make the joint a living hell, close all the malls, send the planet to bed without supper" grandstanding is making me puke! Not to mention all these damned rabid horse-faced crackhead elf things you keep conjuring! What's the deal, lady? You got some Snow White fetish or what?
Exiles #18: So Lame Part 1

Rygol: I can see it! The birth of a new age! My people, free to reach their true potential, finally in their rightful place, and me in mine - above them all! The rest will be free as well... free from their overreaching ambitions... free from the burden of choice. A new reality governed by the divinity of Elvish superiority! Everything and everyone in their proper place! HAHAHAHAHA-
Will: Inspirational stuff! [kicks him in the balls] Bye-bye nutsack, you Mein Kampf-ing alt-right prick!

Robot: They can never know peace like this. You can’t... no one can. Because it doesn’t exist without emptiness. That’s why I got us closer than we’ve ever gotten before... because I’m empty, Mark.
Invincible: You’re not empty. You’re evil. You want to control, you want to be in charge. That’s what this is. Don’t try to turn this into some sad story about how different you are and how that makes you special... how we “need” you. We don’t. We need to be free... of you.


    Fan Works 

Doctor Essex/Sinister (Speaking to Maddie) So. Your programming has broken down again. There would appear to be some critical flaw in your make-up.
Harry Dresden: It's called free will, jackass.

Tsukuyomi: So this is the fate that awaits those that deal with Mikaboshi. Slow destruction, as oblivion consumes us, flesh and soul. Fitting, in a way. Yet you refuse to vanish. Why?
Tsukuyomi: Yes. No matter how grim your situation, you always refused to back down. Even in the face of gods, you have hope. This is what made you great. Not your skills, not your blood, not even your destiny. Just sheer, mind-boggling stubbornness.
Mikaboshi: Stubbornness is nothing but lying to oneself. You two will be consumed-
The Warlord: And you, little girl? Nothing to add? As a copy, I guess you can begin to guess what I mean. Those disgusting, perverted feelings. Compassion. Love. Has anyone ever returned them? Has Konoha ever liked you?
Naruko: ...Are you done? There is nothing you already told me I haven't told myself already. I have failed every single person who believed in me. People who deserved to live more than I did died for me. If i could have taken Kurama's place, or Kakashi-sensei's, I would in a heartbeat. But I am here. I... I can't disregard their sacrifice, no matter how I want to. This is why... I will fight you.
Wonder Woman: Fury, Mother, get behind me.
Hippolyta: Never. I stand between Mars and all others, no matter what the cost. I stand in the name of Aphrodite.
Mars: She does not rule here. She has no influence here.
Hippolyta: She rules everywhere. Even in the depths of your alien world-dungeon.

Riku: Maleficent was right! You don't have what it takes to save Kairi!
Riku: Only the true keyblade master can open the secret door and change the world.

Colette: Is that why you think we did this? Out of lust for power? You think we planned to exploit humanity? Bribe them with offers of protection from demon outbreaks? When the Pharaoh refused to obey God’s will, when he refused to give God the deference He deserved, God set plagues upon the land of Egypt! This is no different. Ours is a Godless age. People are turning their backs on Him day after day! This outbreak was meant to bring people back to Him, to remind humanity what really matters! Unite humanity under His banner, against a common enemy!
Yuuna: United through fear. Fear of demon outbreaks. They’re the boogiemen. ‘Enemy X’ meant to keep us in line, ‘Farmer Jones’ if you’ve read Animal Farm. And the only reason they’re here at all is because of the Flock, so you can hurt innocent people and frighten them into compliance in a way that doesn’t get your conscience twitching. Window dress it all you want, Colette, but ultimately…you’re just a terrorist.

Eneru: I have no equal! I am supreme!
Gan Fall: Then why are you bleeding so badly?

Sombra: You brute! Have you not evolved the ability to address your better?!
Xenilla: No words needed. I'd have a human gesture for you, but I don't have any fingers at the moment.

Ikazuki: Humans with their senseless nobility. I could find it admirable if it weren't so pathetic.
Tohru: Yet humans defeated you once, and it's a human body you need now.
Zod: You will kneel before me, daughter of Jor-El. Even if it takes my entire life and all my strength, you. Will. KNEEL!
Rainbow Dash: (blocks blow) "I’ll only kneel to two ponies. And you’re not one of them!" (throws Zod through a wall)

Superman: Julius Morton. Industrialist. Double-plus seated, super-secure. One question: Why?
Morton: You would have to ask why. You worship Rao, not Christ.
Superman: I have a feeling both of Them would be as disgusted with you as I am. It’s over.

Darkseid: Woman, I perceived what you did. You shielded D’reema from my power. You gave her time to speak the Life Equation. Because of you— because of you— the power of Anti-Life is lost to me forever. Perhaps. For that, there must be recompense. For that, there must be death.
Supergirl: I’ll settle for yours.

Jazz: Oh here we go. Now we get to listen to how this is somehow supposed to be Dad's fault. Haven't we heard this whining before?
Vlad Plamius: Oh, and now we get to hear color commentary from young Jasmine, the smartest 16­ year­ old on the planet, if she does say so herself… as if that's actually an accomplishment. And just what exactly do you know about ANYTHING, little girl?
Jazz: "I know I didn't end up turning myself into a global pariah and losing everything I had because I couldn't see past my own nose."
Jack "Ooooooo, good one, Princess! She got you there, V­Man!

Nicodemus: "Now do you understand, Dresden? Against such forces, any measure is justified."
Harry Dresden: "You've... I guess there is a kinda logic to it all. I mean - hell, I've gone up against plenty of nasty things in my time. There's been more than once that I've had to do some pretty questionable stuff for the Greater Good and all that."
Harry starts laughing.
Harry: "I don't know what's more pathetic. The possibility that you really think that you're some kinda hero and that everything you've done has all been for the Greater Good, or the possibility that you're lying off your ass and you actually think I'm dumb enough to fall for a line like that. You wanna know the simple truth, Nicky? If you were ever some kind of wanna-be hero, then you jumped off the slippery slope so long ago your feet don't even remember what it feels like to touch the ground. If you're a liar, you're a crappy one. Either way, I'm not buying the shit you're selling, because the simple truth is that you're an asshole."

Snake of the Festival: You would give up a perfect world for two mere girls? They will be recreated anyway.
Yuji: Like they said, it won't be the same! They can never be replaced!
Snake of the Festival: You dare go up against me? Everything you have, your life, your power to protect, all of it, you owe to me.
Yuji: Ever since I've met you, I brought nothing but suffering. I lost sight of my true goal. You deceived me, and I would have lost everything that truly mattered. But now I remember what is most important to me, I found myself again, and I will fight for peace, but not with your way.

You're wrong, Hopper. Ants aren't meant to serve grasshoppers. I've seen these ants do great things, and year after year, they somehow manage to gather enough food for themselves and you! So who's the weaker species? Ants don't serve grasshoppers, it's you who need us! We're a lot stronger than you say we are . . . and you know it, don't you?
Flik, A Bug's Life

Lex Luthor: I saw how to save the world! I could have made everyone see. If it wasn't for you, I could have saved the world!
Superman: If it had mattered to you, Luthor, you could have saved the world years ago.
Lex Luthor: (quietly) ...You're right.

Claudandus: The world is Hell, Francis. And the crowning glory of hatefulness in this world is man. And the joke, my friend, is that we're no different than him.
Francis: You've become like him, Pascal! You think like man, you act like man, and so tell me, what's the fate of lesser animals in your little world?
Claudandus: None at all. They're stupid, they're victims to their fate.
Francis: And what about the good men? Pascal or Claudandus or Felidae or whatever you want to call yourself-
Francis: I'll fight you with all my might, all my strength! (starts typing on the computer) I'll start by erasing this unholy profile listing your murders! Oh, you've had it!
Revolutionist: Me and you have been assigned to blow up the power plant. That's all I care about. The revolution. (Turns the radio on)
Fritz: (Turns the radio off) You're full of shit! All you care about is a reason to hurt, to destroy, to blow up! You don't know what a real revolution is! None of you sons of bitches do!

Hans: B-but she froze your heart!
Anna: The only frozen heart around here is yours. (WHAM!)

Frollo: Such a pity. You threw away a promising career.
Phoebus: Consider it my highest honor, sir.

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

Your days of chasing animals are over, DuBois! Because this time, you messed with the king! ... This is where animals like you belong! Sit, DuBois! Lie down. Roll over... Good, DuBois. Now stay.

Lotso: She replaced us!
Woody: She replaced you! And if you couldn't have her, no one could!

I spoke with Commissioner Gordon before I came in here. He told me he wanted this done by the book. You know what that means? That despite all your sick, cruel, vicious little games, he's as sane as he ever was. So ordinary people don't crack. Maybe it's just you.

    Film - Live-Action 

King Leonidas: You bring the crowns and heads of conquered kings to my city's steps! You insult my queen. You threaten my people with slavery and death! Oh, I've chosen my words carefully, Persian. Perhaps you should have done the same!
Messenger: This is blasphemy! This is madness!
King Leonidas: Madness...? This! Is! SPARTA! (kicks messenger down a well)

Loki: In the end, you will always kneel.
Old Man: [stands] Not to men like you.
Old Man: There are always men like you.

Loki: Enough! You are, all of you, beneath me! I am a god, you dull creature! And I will not be bullied by-

The Incredible Hulk: Puny god.

Crossbones: This is gonna hurt. There are no prisoners with HYDRA. Only order. And order only comes with pain. You ready for yours?
Falcon: Man, shut the hell up.

Tony Stark: I'm sorry, Earth is closed today! You need to pack it up and get outta here.
Ebony Maw: Stonekeeper. Does this chattering animal speak for you?
Doctor Stephen Strange: Certainly not, I speak for myself. [pulls out magic shields] You're trespassing in this city and on this planet.
Tony Stark: [to Maw, nonchalantly] He means "Get lost, Squidward!"

He's an asshole! I don't care what Tannen says! And I don't care what anybody else says, either!

Batman: What were you trying to prove? That deep down, everyone's as ugly as you?! You're alone!
Joker: (sighs) Can't rely on anyone these days, you've gotta do everything yourself, DON'T WE?'s a funny world we live in. Speaking of which, y'know how I got these scars?
Batman: No. But I know how you got these. (shoots the Joker in the face with his gauntlets, throws him off the building)

Ajax (spitefully): What's my name?
Deadpool (cocks his gun): Who fucking cares?

Mrs. Robinson: Elaine, it's too late!

Insp Frank Butterman: I'm disappointed you can't see the bigger picture.
Sgt Nicholas Angel: Well, I'm happy to disappoint you, sir.

Gollum: We wants it. We needs it. Must... have... the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little hobbitses! Wicked, tricksy, false!
Sméagol: No. Not Master.
Gollum: Yes, precious. False! They will cheat you, hurt you, lie!
Sméagol: Master's my friend.
Gollum: You don't have any friends. Nobody likes you!
Sméagol: [Covers his ears] Not listening. I'm not listening.
Gollum: You're a liar and a thief.
Sméagol: No.
Gollum: Murderer...!
Sméagol: [Starts to weep and whimper] Go away.
Gollum: Go away?! [Cackles]
Sméagol: I hate you. I hate you!
Gollum: Where would you be without me?! Gollum, Gollum! I saved us! It was me! We survived because of ME!
Sméagol: Not... anymore...
Gollum: ...What did you say?
Sméagol: Master looks after us now. We don't... need you.

Sméagol: We... we told him to go away! And away he goes, precious! Gone, gone, gone! Sméagol is free!
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

There's a useful four letter word, and you're full of it.
James Bond to Francisco Scaramanga, The Man with the Golden Gun

Agent Smith: Why, Mr. Anderson? Why, why, why? Why do you do it? Why? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting for something? For more than your survival? Can you tell me what it is? Do you even know? Is it freedom or truth?! Perhaps peace?! Could it be for love?! Illusions, Mr. Anderson, vagaries of perception! Temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning or purpose! And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love! You must be able to see it, Mr. Anderson! You must know it by now! You can't win! It's pointless to keep fighting! Why, Mr. Anderson?! Why?! WHY DO YOU PERSIST?!
Neo: Because I choose to.

Shere Khan: The man-cub is mine! I have already tasted its mother's blood! It is my right.
Nisha: Your right according to whose law?!
Akela: Best you leave now.
Shere Khan: Careful, Akela. You do not want to challenge me.
Akela: This cub is under the protection of the pack. Should you decide to take me, you take on the pack. All of us. As long as I am leader, this part of the jungle is closed to you.

Captain Vidal: Tell my son the time his father died. Tell him.
Mercedes: No. He won't even know your name.
Pedro: (shoots Vidal in the face)

You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I'm an easy target. Yeah, you're right, I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you... but I don't like to hurt people's feelings. Well, you think what you want about me; I'm not changing. I like... I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. 'Cause I'm the real article. What you see is what you get.

Ghostface: I'm an innocent victim.
Sydney: You're a psychotic.
Ghostface: Yeah, well. Shh... that'll be our little secret. Cause people love a good trial. It's like theater. They're dyin' for it. And I've worked hard to give the audience what they want. See, that's what [the last Scream Killer] was good at. He knew... It's all about... execution.
Sydney: Yeah? Well, you're forgetting one thing about [him].
Ghostface: What's that?
Sydney: I fucking killed him.

You see a lot, Doctor. But are you strong enough to point that high powered perception at yourself? What about it, why don't you look at yourself and write down what you see? Maybe you're afraid to.
Clarice Starling in response to the Trope Namer, The Silence of the Lambs

James Bond: Not much more than a voyeur, are you? Too scared to join in?
Franz Oberhauser/Ernst Stavro Blofeld: [chuckles] I don't think you quite understand.
Bond: Oh, I think I do. You set cities on fire and watch innocent people burn, so you can convince governments to join an intelligence network you've paid for. Not that complicated. I'm guessing our little friend C, he's one of your disciples?
Oberhauser/Blofeld: You could say that.
Bond: And what does he get out of it?
Oberhauser/Blofeld: Nothing. He's a visionary like me.
Bond: Visionaries? Psychiatric wards are full of them.

In the words of Uberst von Scherbach, "Now that the German victory is in sight, all American prisoners are to be indoctrinated with the teachings of the Führer," unquote. In my own words: (belch), unquote.
Marco, Stalag17

Let me explain what's happening here. You are a criminal. I watched you murder innocent men and women; I was authorized to end you! And the only reason why you are still alive is because I am allowing it, so shut. Your. Mouth.
James T. Kirk, to John Harrison/Khan Noonien Singh, Star Trek Into Darkness

Darth Vader: You cannot hide forever, Luke.
Luke Skywalker: I will not fight you.
Vader: Give yourself to The Dark Side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes... your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for... sister. So, you have a twin sister! Your feelings have now betrayed her too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete! If you will not turn to the Dark Side, then perhaps she will
Luke: (ignites lightsaber and charges out of hiding) NEVER!!

Phasma: You were always scum.
Finn: Rebel scum.

M: Mr. Silva, you're going to be transferred to Belmarsh Prison, where you will be remanded in custody, until the Crown Prosecution Service deem you fit to stand trial...
Raoul Silva: Say my name. Say it! My real name. I know you remember it.
Vic Hoskins: The mother hen has finally arrived -
Owen Grady: (punches him) Get the hell out of here and stay away from my animals.

Sidney: You spineless bastard!
Ghostface: No, Sid, that would be you! You did it all. You did it! You call them all, even your closest... friends. Living in total isolation, the pressure of another movie about you, the discovery that Milton destroyed Mommy dearest, you finally just snapped! And who's our hero, huh? The sole survivor. Who's the one who bravely faced down the psychopath and killed her with her own knife?! You're gonna pay for the life you stole from me, Sid. For the mother, and for the family, and for the stardom, and...GODDAMN IT! EVERYTHING YOU HAVE THAT SHOULD'VE BEEN MINE!
Sidney: God, why don't you stop your whining and get on with it?! I've heard this shit before!
Ghostface: STOP!
Sidney: Do you know why you kill people, Roman? Do you?
Sidney: BECAUSE YOU CHOOSE TO! There is no one else to blame!
Sidney: Why don't you take some FUCKING responsibility?
Ghostface: FUCK YOU!
Sidney: FUCK YOU!!!

Elsa: [Coyly] Don't look at me like that. We both wanted the Grail. I would have done anything to get it. You would have done exactly the same.
Indiana Jones: [Quiet disgust] I'm sorry you think so.

Assistant Principal Hogarth: I've been an educator for 31.3 years, and in that time, I've seen a lot of bad eggs. I say "eggs" because at the elementary level, we are not dealing with fully-developed individuals. I see a bad egg when I look at your niece. She is a twiddler, a dreamer, a silly heart, and she is a jabberbox. And, frankly, I don't think she takes a thing in her life or her career as a student seriously.
Buck Russell: She's only six.
Hogarth: That is not a valid excuse! I hear that every day and I dismiss it.
Buck: I don't want to know a six-year-old who isn't a dreamer or a silly heart. I sure don't want to know one who takes their student career seriously. I don't have a college degree. I don't even have a job. I know a good kid when I see one. Because they're all good kids, until dried-out, brain-deadskags like you drag them down and convince them they're no good. You so much as scowl at my niece or any other kid in this school and I hear about it, I'm coming looking for you. Here. Take this quarter. Go downtown and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face. (beat) Good day to you, madam.


Big Bad: The greatest gift I give is this: that I buy your surrender. That I allow you to come to Me with your dignity as well as your life. This is less a surrender than it is a contract: value given for value received. Thus do I demonstrate to all history the love I bear you, Caine; thus shall it be written in every-
Caine: (stands up)
Big Bad: ...You've learned a new trick. Come, then: let us meet as men, standing face-to-face, for the surrender of the sword. I applaud your sense of ceremony: Grant and Lee at Appomattox Courthouse, rather than Brutus at the feet of Ant-
Caine: (points Kosall at him) You talk too fucking much. You and me, we both know what's going on here, and it has nothing to do with surrender.

"Were you not alone, Geneviève Dieudonné? And are you not among friends now? Among equals?"
She had been un-dead a half-century longer than Vlad Tepes. When she turned, this prince was a babe in arms, shortly to be delivered into a life in captivity.
"Impaler," she declared, "I have no equal."

Angron: "Listen to your blue-clad wretches yelling of courage and honour, courage and honour, courage and honour. Do you even know the meaning of those words? Courage is fighting the kingdom which enslaves you, no matter that their armies outnumber yours by ten-thousand to one. You know nothing of courage. Honour is resisting a tyrant when all others suckle and grow fat on the hypocrisy he feeds them. You know nothing of honor."
Guilliman: "And you’re still a slave, Angron. Enslaved by your past, blind to the future. Too hateful to learn. Too spiteful to prosper."
Horus Heresy, Betrayer

Then the prophet spake: saying "Frak this, for my faith is a shield proof against your blandishments."
Alem Mahat, The Book of Cain Chapter IV, Verse XXI, The Traitor's Hand

Nero: Oh shut up, you... you maddened misanthrope!
Simon Peter: A misanthrope hates mankind, Caesar. We Christians love humanity. Even you.

Peter McAlphine: "You see? You’ve all done questionable things in your quest to stop us. You’ve used torture and intimidation; you’ve killed people to make yourselves feel better. You’ve demeaned yourselves, Drood. Oh, we went to a lot of trouble to work out schemes best suited to bring out your dark side. . . . And do you know why, Eddie? Because only those who stand in Heaven’s gaze have Heaven’s strength, and can hope to stand against the forces of Darkness. And you and your family aren’t qualified anymore."
Edmund Drood: "You came close. But not close enough. We didn’t come here to fight evil men; we came here to rescue your prisoners. We didn’t come here to punish you for what you’ve done, but to prevent the Great Sacrifice and save a generation of children. It isn’t what you do, Phil; it’s why you do it."
Secret Histories : For Heaven's Eyes Only

"One word, Ma'am," he said, coming back from the fire; limping, because of the pain. "One word. All you've been saying is quite right, I shouldn't wonder. I'm a chap who always liked to know the worst and then put the best face I can on it. So I won't deny any of what you said. But there's one thing more to be said, even so. Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things—trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. And that's a funny thing, when you come to think of it. We're just babies making up a game, if you're right. But four babies playing a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. That's why I'm going to stand by the play-world. I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia. So, thanking you kindly for our supper, if these two gentlemen and the young lady are ready, we're leaving your court at once and setting out in the dark to spend our lives looking for Overland. Not that our lives will be very long, I should think; but that's small loss if the world's as dull a place as you say."
Puddleglum, The Silver Chair

Redwillow: I'm loyal to my new Clan! Your time is over, you're nothing but an elder growing old over and over. Why don't you just give up and die?
Blackstar: I am still leader of this Clan. And you have betrayed us all.
Warrior Cats: The Last Hope

You're the one who's really a human being! You think just like they do! You act just like they do! You only want to repeat all the misery they have brought to the world. You're dreaming not of real change but of establishing a new dictatorship paid for with hundreds and thousands of dead from your own ranks. And tell me what kind of a role you've thought up for the other animals species in your oh-so-very-wonderful never-never land? Come on, answer me!
Francis during Pascal's Motive Rant, Felidae

Mab: I have his oath, ancient one. What he has given is mine by right, and you may not gainsay it. He is mine to shape as I please.
Archangel Uriel: [to Harry Dresden ] Lies. Mab cannot change who you are.

But if I’d been expecting him to soften, I got the opposite result.
I know my mother loves me, Visser,” he said. “And let me make one thing clear: There’s no deal between us, you and me, Yeerk. I’ll kill you for what you’ve done to her and to my dad. Count on that.”
He hung up.
The door burst in as I slammed the cell phone into the toilet bowl and flushed. Preposterous! A scrawny teenager threatening me. I was a prisoner of Visser Three, already all but condemned to a death by torture and starvation. Did the child think he could frighten me? It was laughable.
<And yet you’re not laughing, are you, Yeerk?>

"All of these things you've done, all the energy spent, the hatred, and you know what the funny thing about it is? I have no idea who the hell you are. I've been on hundreds of missions in my time; this one you're so upset about, I was sent to retrieve an object. If I'm being honest, I don't even remember what it was. As far as I'm concerned, you're just another redshirt like so many others, who tried unsuccessfully to stop me from saving the world, cos that's what I do. So, cool origin story, bro, but this means nothing to me."
Phil Coulson, to Anton Ivanov, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., "The Man Behind the Shield"

Kassius: Stand down, or experience death like your friends many, many times.
Mack: You're a real piece of work, you know that?
Kassius: I am a God, to be feared! Humans beg to be ruled; without me, they would have perished long ago!
Mack: I guess you're not the New Testament guy. Vengeance and tortures are tools of the Devil.
Yo-yo: And of the weak.
Kassius: You want a devil? I'll show you a Hell you cannot imagine-
Yo-yo: You're no God. Nor Devil. You're just a cruel, sad little blue man. So why don't we skip to the part where I end this?
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Best Laid Plan

Harkness: You think you accomplished something here? You think you not killing me makes you strong? It just means... you're weak.
Arrow: It means I have some humanity left.

Jack: How 'bout it, Hank? Should I let you go?
Hank: My name is ASAC Schrader - and you can go fuck yourself.
Breaking Bad, "Ozymandias"

The Doctor: Why should I? You never did!

Moriarty: You'd be surprised at what I'd do for love.
Watson: Nothing crazy people do surprises me.
Elementary, "The Diabolical Kind"

Dawn: You've got me in a cage, wrapped up neatly in a bow. Do you think we're the only ones? We're not. There are many more like me. We're your neighbors. We serve your coffee, wash your cars... and we will never stop fighting until every single person who walks this earth accepts Islam and all the wonders of God.
Steve: That's never gonna happen. Not in this country, anyway, because for every one of you, there's a thousand of me. And just like you, we're willing to die for the cause, too. And no matter what you do, no matter how hard you come at us, you will never change the way we think and you will never, ever change the way we live. You wanted to sacrifice your life for the cause, right? Congratulations. You just did.

Helen Cutter: I offer you the key to time. The key to time, Nick! And you turn your back on it. Call yourself a scientist?
Nick Cutter: I call myself a human being.
Primeval, Series 1, Episode 3

Shawn: You're just delaying the inevitable, Michael. The Bad Place is going to get all of them eventually. These four humans, their loved ones...and do you wanna know what else I have a hunch about?
Michael: No.

Michael: Why let the guy keep saying mean stuff, right?

Stephen Norton: [on hearing that Hercule Poirot will execute him; pretends to look at his watch] Then do get on with it. I promised myself an early night.
Poirot: Justice is no joking matter, monsieur. I do what I can to serve it, but if I fail, there is a justice that is higher, believe me!
Norton: [sneers] You pathetic, self-important... little man. Murder me? There's a mortal sin if there ever was. And then what? Suicide to escape the ignominy of hanging? Ah... your God will give you A Hell of a Time. All those years of piety, up in smoke because of me! [Poirot suddenly suffers an angina attack and begins gasping] Ah-ah-ah, monsieur, you can't go yet! [Poirot starts wheeling himself to the table for the amyl nitrite inhalants] You don't think I'd let you die on me, [beats Poirot to the table] deprive me of my ultimate triumph? [takes the box of amyl nitrite from the table]
Poirot: [gasping for breath, trying to take the box back] Please... please...
Norton: [gloats evilly] You see, if you don't succeed, I'm a free man. [takes out the inhalant and sets the box down; Poirot reaches for the inhalant, but Norton pulls it further up and away from him] And even if you do, it will still be a victory of sorts, because in the eyes of the law, I would be innocent, whereas you and your reputation, your precious reputation... blown to bits!
Poirot: [gasping in anger] Je vous en prie!note 
Norton: [mimicking and mocking Poirot's voice and accent] "Je vous en prie!" can see them now. "Went off his rocker. In the end, you can never trust a foreigner." [pops open the inhalant capsule and, in a Pet the Dog moment, hands it back to Poirot, who quickly inhales it] You see how good I am to you... old man? There we go. Take your time, and see how it all pans out, shall we? [in a Mocking Sing-Song voice] ♪♫Who will be there at the final curtain?♪♫
Poirot: I pity you, Norton... how very sad to find that this beautiful world is so foul and disappointing. And your mother, I pity even more.

Tyrion: I freed my brother. And you slaughtered a city.
Game of Thrones, "The Iron Throne."

Catherine: I just have one question: Why me?
Laura: You really have to ask? Why do you think I chose you? I know you...When we were kids, you always went for the boy who needed you; I always went for the boy who would give me something...I take what I want. You put everyone else first, because that's the easier way. You'd rather accept the life you have rather than risk having the life you want.
Catherine: You're never going to see the outside world again, Laura. Tell me whose life you'd rather have now. Oh, and you do know me. But not as well as you think. Because when you chose me, you should've known it was gonna end like this.

Hey Anti-Christ-er, Beelzeboss,

We rock the Casbah, and blow your mind,
We will defeat you, for all mankind!

You are The Devil,
We are the D!

Until then, don't you dare say that we are the same

There You Go!
You're always so right!
It's all a big show!
It's all about you!
You think you know -
What everyone needs -
You always take time -
To criticize me.
It seems like every day,
I make mistakes,
I just can't get it right.
It's like I'm the one,
You love to hate!
But not today.
So shut up, shut up, shut up,
Don't want to hear it!
Get out, get out, get out,
Get out of my way!
Step up, step up, step up,
You'll never stop me!
Nothing, you say, today,
Is gonna bring me down!

Sheriff Connors: Well, as I see it, we got two options. Option One: Dylan goes free. Of course. We pin this on Liam. We both step forward, you present your evidence, I present the gloves, and everything moves forward as planned. The town survives. Option Two: Dylan goes free. You take me into custody. And this town falls into the hands of corruption and bureaucracy, and they don't trust law anymore. They don't know right from wrong anymore. And there's no one left to guide them.
Gandy Dancer: You have to understand something, Sheriff. Our primary goal is to accomplish our mission. We were hired to prove Dylan Mathers' innocence, and to free him from this prison. I can't speak for you other two, but I personally don't care about the rest. And if Dylan is not out of that cell, then we haven't accomplished our mission.
Sheriff Connors: Either way, the boy goes free, okay? You don't have to worry about Dylan-
Errol Ryehouse: Sheriff, you may find this hard to believe, but we're speaking the same language. The last thing I want is for outside interests to come in, and force themselves on Carrion Street, and change our way of life. We like the way we live on Carrion Street. But if that means living with your justice? If that means locking up innocent folks? If that means killing boys in the street...why are we having this fucking conversation? You killed a boy in the street! ::draws weapons::

Majd Addin: I killed them because I could! Because it was fun! Do you know what it feels like to determine another man's fate? And did you see the way the people cheered? The way they feared me? I was like a god! You'd have done the same if you could! Such power...
Altaïr: Once, perhaps, but then I learned what becomes of those who lift themselves above others.
Majd Addin: And what is that?
Altaïr: Here, let me show you. (stabs Majd in the neck with the Hidden Blade, killing him)

Lucia Márquez: My father saw such potential in these islands. Gold... industry... freedom... all of it squandered. You have not a clue how to use it. He could have brought you wealth.
Opía Apito: You believe we wasted freedom by living freely? You die a prisoner of your Templar mores.

Chakravartin: You have exceeded my expectations; I praise you. You are indeed the one to inherit this world; Gaea must be led by one of its own. I may now leave this world and save other worlds in need of my guidance. Come, and join your daughter. I am counting on you.
Asura: (punches him in the face) I refuse!
Chakravartin: dare you defy me?!
Asura: I will destroy you AND YOUR SO-CALLED WORLD!

Augus: You need to enjoy this a bit more!

The Joker: All this... all this rage. All directed at me, and for what?! You know, if you'd actually let me finish a sentence, you might learn something. You might learn that we're not so different. You might even learn something about yourself.
Batman: You need to learn to shut up.

Hamel: Will they, now?

Dracula: It was not by my hands that I am once again given flesh. I was called here by humans who wished to pay me tribute!
Richter Belmont: Tribute!? You steal men's souls, and make them your slaves!
Dracula: Perhaps the same could be said of all religions.
Richter Belmont: Your words are as empty as your soul! Mankind ill-needs a savior such as you!

Richter Belmont: Dracula, die now and leave this world! You'll never belong here!
Dracula: Oh... but this world invited me. Your own kind called me forth with praise and tribute.
Richter Belmont: Tribute?! You're a thief! You steal men's souls, their freedom!
Dracula: Freedom is always sacrificed to faith, good hunter. Or are you truly here by choice?
Richter Belmont: All I'm here for is you. To Hell with your heresy! You're nothing but a blight on mankind!
Dracula: Ha! Mankind. A cesspit of hatred and lies. Fight for them, then, and die for their sins!

Elder Maxson: Danse isn't a man, it's a machine. An automaton created by the Institute. It wasn't born from the womb of a loving mother, it was created from the cold confines of a laboratory. Flesh is flesh. Machine is machine. The two were never meant to intertwine. By attempting to play God, the Institute had taken the sanctity of human life and corrupted it beyond measure.
Paladin Danse: After all I've done for the Brotherhood... all the blood I've spilled in our name... how can you say that about me?
Elder Maxson: You're the physical embodiment of what we hate most: technology that's gone. Too. Far. Look around you, Danse. Look at the scorched earth, and the bones that litter the wasteland. Millions, perhaps even billions died because science outpaced man's restraint! They called it "a new frontier" and "pushing the envelope", completely disregarding the repercussions! Can't you see the same thing is happening again?! You're a single bomb in an arsenal of thousands, preparing to lay waste to what's left of mankind.
Sole Survivor: Danse wants to save mankind, not destroy it.
Elder Maxson: You are delusional, as you are insubordinate! How can you trust the words of a machine that thinks it's alive? A machine's that had its mind erased, its thoughts programmed, its very soul manufactured! The ethics that it's trying to champion aren't even its own. It was artificially inserted in an attempt to have it blend into society.
Paladin Danse: It's true. I was built within the confines of a laboratory, and some of my memories aren't my own. But when I saw my brothers dying at my feet, I felt sorrow. When I defeated an enemy of the Brotherhood, I felt pride. And when I heard your speech about saving the Commonwealth... I felt hope. Don't you understand? I thought I was human, Arthur. From the moment I was taken in by the Brotherhood, I've done absolutely nothing to betray your trust, and I never will.

Green Lantern: You're Sinestro Corps?!
Yellow Lantern: Sinestro's right. Fear is more effective than willpower.
Green Lantern: So you ditched green and went yellow. The color of cowardice.

Regime Superman: Disobedient children will be punished.
Superman: Children? We're not gods. We don't decide who lives and who dies.
Regime Superman: The decision IS mine! It became mine when Joker turned me into a weapon of mass destruction!

Regime Superman: And you judge me?! (beat) After I've killed you, I'll bring Lois here. When she sees how I've perfected this world—

Zant: You... TRAITORS!

Weil: Are you even capable of it? The Reploid hero, protecting justice and humanity! I am one of those humans you have sworn to protect! Do you have it in you to defeat me?! (cue One-Winged Angel)
Zero: I never cared about justice and I don't recall ever calling myself a hero... I have always only fought for the people I believe in. I won't hesitate... If an enemy appears in front of me, I will destroy it!

Serpent: If you're so confident in yourself, then let's see which of us is destined to rule the world!
Aile/Vent: I don't care about ruling the world! If you're the Mega Man destined to rule the world, then I'm the Mega Man that's destined to save it!

Grey: Yeah, you're right. I'm defective. I'm just a simple boy named Grey. You couldn't change the destiny of a simple boy like me. This is the destiny that I've chosen: to live as one with the people of this world!
Master Albert: Is that what the other me would have said? Goodbye, ultimate defective! You can have your gentle peace... and leisurely rot in it!
Mega Man ZX Advent

Steven Armstrong: Making the mother of all omelettes here, Jack. Can't fret over every egg.
Raiden: Not when you're "purging the weak," right? What do you know about "the weak?" You weren't born poor. You've never been hungry. You don't know what it's like to fight, and steal, and kill just to survive!
Steven Armstrong: But you DID survive! Through sheer force of will, following your own set of rules! With your own two hands, you took back your life!
Raiden: And now... I'll take yours.

Johnny Cage: Grandpa...
Shinnok: I will rip your INSOLENT tongue from-!
Johnny Cage: Yeah yeah, shut up.

Wizeman the Wicked: NiGHTS. I am dismayed at your continued insolence. If only you had obeyed my will and accepted a new soul, at least your body could have lived on...
NiGHTS: Shut up, Wizeman! We're not your puppets! No matter what you think, we CAN do things on our own! We won't be held back by anyone, because we have free will!
NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams

Werner: A warrior of your skill and repute serving as a glorified bodyguard for paupers and peasants. It isn't too late to find yourself a more worthy cause. Join me as captain of my guard. I will see that you are...well compensated.
Olberic: The Flame take you and all you stand for! This sword would cut down a hundred tyrants like you to protect the life of a single innocent and defenseless man!

Reaper: I'll be sure to send them your regards, monkey.
Winston: I'm not a monkey... I'm a scientist!
Overwatch: Recall

Nyarlathotep: But remember this! The masses of idiocy that squirm in the center of the cosmos are yourselves. As long as you exist, so shall I!!
Baofu: You're too damn stubborn. There's no such thing as a human without shadows. We'll make you remember that your place is here. Just go to Hell and be done with it. (Baofu and friends land their finishing blow)

Favored by the world, my ass. I'm gonna say it flat out. You're just a worthless criminal!
Yosuke, Persona 4

Speak for yourself! Living is too painful for you, but you don't want to die... of course, no one would understand! It makes no sense! You're just throwing a tantrum like a kid who can't have his way!
Yukiko, Persona 4

Thaos: Have your friends proven a worthy distraction from the pain of ostracism?
Hiravias: Ostracism? Is that the name for the groin rash your mother gave me?

Lana: Mr. Wright, let me offer you a word of advice.
Phoenix: Yes?
Lana: A defense attorney should never "believe" their client. [...] The defendant is called to trial because they are suspected of wrongdoing! Never forget that.
Phoenix: Ms. Skye, you... You remind me a lot of Mia. But there is one decisive difference between you and her.
Lana: And that is?
Phoenix: You're not a defense attorney.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, "Rise From The Ashes"

Aelita: Look at you two insignificant worms trying to ruin my paradise. Treading on through a world where you don't belong makes you unwanted. Out there I am weak and fragile, but... here I am powerful. Here I am invincible! And you all? You're nothing to me. Just obscure little ants that will fall to my bullet.
Erin: FUCKING - Enough with the edgy bullshit! Aelita, you are the most stubborn, annoying little bitch that I've ever met in my entire life! But dammit, that's who you are and that's just what you should be! Wallowing in your own self-pity is the one thing that makes you weakest! You think you're all big and tough in this world? On the contrary! I've never seen someone act so pathetic and helpless! You want to be strong? You want power? Then get up and change things yourself for once in your damn life! C'mon. If she wants to act stupid, then we'll act stupid too.

Jack Marston: You Killed My Father!
Edgar Ross: (smugly) Your father killed himself with the life he lived.
Jack Marston: (furious) YOU killed him! I saw you!
Edgar Ross: You keep saying that.
Jack Marston: You sent him to do your dirty work! Then you shot him like a dog!
Edgar Ross: And I'll shoot you like one too, you piece of trash! Now get out of here before I kill you as well!
Jack Marston: I ain't going nowhere, old man!

Wesker: A new genesis is at hand and I will be the creator-
(Sheva brings Wesker down to the ground)
Chris: I've had ENOUGH! Of your BULLSHIT!
(Chris injects Wesker with the serum)

The Black Signal: Your friends died following a lunatic. I saw them suffer-suffer-suffer-suffer-suffer...
Ricky Pagan: Enough! Get behind me, Static Satan! Get outta my box! The Power of Rock compels you! I'll take illusions over lies: I... AM RICKY PAGAN!

Neo Astaroth: My soul has been revived! The age of Mankind is coming to an end. Joy, sadness, desire... all of it is finished now. I will usher in a glorious new future.
Yuri Hyuga: Before you do, can I ask a favor?
Neo Astaroth: What do you wish, human?
Yuri Hyuga: I wish you'd shove it. You know where.
Neo Astaroth: ......
Shadow Hearts: Covenant

Achi: The old Earth will die soon. Killed by the very people it fed. When I take its place, I will not make the same mistake. What I need is a God of War to rule the chaos for me. That's you, Saki. You must grow powerful for me. Powerful enough to rule a planet.
Airan: She's just replacing the Earth?
Saki: Invade...?
Airan: Will she lead all humanity away?
Saki: What's best for me is all that matters.
Airan: Saki...
Saki: I understand. I'm of this planet.

Sly: So, before we finish this, let me get one thing straight: you came after the Coopers because of what happened to your father?
Le Paradox: No, you imbecile! I came after the Coopers to prove that Le Paradox is the greatest thief who has ever lived! If there any doubt? Ask yourself this: if the Coopers were truly the greatest thieves in history, and I have stolen their most valued possessions, then what does that make me?
Sly: Ummm... an idiot? You had it made! You could have been the biggest thief of all time, but you had to target my ancestors and blow your own cover. You exposed your operation because of your ego! No Cooper would've done that. And for the record, can you really say you stole the canes? Seems like your "friends" did all the real work.

Arcturus Mengsk: Kerrigan, the die is cast. This is the last day your Swarm darkens the sky of any planet. Korhal will endure, as will I!
Kerrigan: Nice quote. I'll engrave it on your tombstone.

Your petty persuasions can't deceive me.
My brethren's cries of anguish as they fell before your phantoms... They ring too loud in my ears.
You say you're infinite? I'll bring you infinite destruction!
You say you're perpetual? I'll show you perpetual ruin!

Kouji Kabuto: You! I won't let you spread war into space!
Vindel Mauser: I won't let you say... that you don't know how much mankind evolved from war!
Kouji: It doesn't matter! Even if people like you exist, I'll still fight! I don't want people to suffer, like Daisuke or Maria who lost their home planet!
Maria: Kouji!
Vindel: Your emotions are strong! Your machine is just a result of that! You have the power to become a god or demon; why would you deny it!?
Kouji: Gramps told me so! But, I'm the one who decides Mazinger can become a god or a devil! Kouji Kabuto! And this power... It's the power to defeat bastards like you!

Char Aznable: Your way will never bring true peace.
Ryouma Nagare: And dropping a rock on Earth will?

Kotetsu Jeeg: You bastard...! What pleasure do you get from wiping out the Earth with an asteroid!?
Char Aznable: It's not like it's what I want to do. I'm carrying this out for the sake of all mankind!
Kotetsu Jeeg: Shut up! You think I'll let you touch my Mom and Mayumi down there on Earth for your own selfish reasons!?

Gadlight Meonsam: I'll give you the faintest taste of the despair that I've experienced!
Sousuke Sagara: Pathetic.
Gadlight: What!?
Sousuke: I have no interest in your background or your feelings. When you stand upon the battlefield, you are my enemy and nothing more. And to me, "enemies" are simply obstacles to remove. If you're looking for conversation, then grab another drink, and go find the nearest drunk.
Gadlight: Haven't I said it already? I'll let you...
Sousuke: Do you REALLY have time to keep shooting your mouth off, you damned amateur?!
Gadlight: You prick! You really want to taste the skills of the Geminis' top ace!?
Sousuke: It seems that useless soldiers that only know how to bluff aren't unique to Earth. Gadlight Meonsam! You're an awful soldier and an even worse commander! I'll take you down!
Third Super Robot Wars Z: Jigoku-hen

Sänger: If you don't value your life, you're welcome to try me. Thoses who will come forward will be cleaved by my Collosal Blade !
Sänger: SHUT UP !

Rishel: Wh.. What ?! Are you even listening to me ? You're gonna regret that !
Sänger: I'm the one who should be saying that ! Moving Forward !

Damian Hawke: We've been expecting you. You've had a very long journey.
Quinn Hart: Yeah, I almost missed my date with you.
Damian Hawke: Yes, well..........
Quinn Hart: How about we get straight to business? What's this about?
Damian Hawke: It's about survival. I am merely a provider of what is required for existence......
Quinn Hart: "Provider"?! You're nothing but scum in a business suit.
Damian Hawke: Come now, there really is no need for such hostility. We are a legitimate service which.....
Quinn Hart: .....lies, cheats, steals, and assassinates. Real legitimate!
Damian Hawke: I had better hopes for you, Mr. Hart. Things did not go quite as we had planned.
Quinn Hart: .................

Aun'el Shi'Ores: Your tyrant does not rule here, invader!
Davian Thule: The Emperor rules all, alien! You'll learn that soon enough.
Aun'el Shi'Ores: You have nothing to teach me, zealot!
Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War: Dark Crusade

Azariah Kyras: Ahh, Gabriel! Ever so faithful to that rotting Emperor... Do you not know his soul has been picked clean centuries ago?
Gabriel Angelos: Such are the ways of daemons, to lie and mislead us. Destroying it is the only way to avoid its influences!
Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War II: Retribution

Azariah Kyras: Diomedes! Survived Typhon, did you? You shall make a fine sacrifice, another step on the path to daemonhood! Both you and Angelos! Another skull! Another corpse, bloated with blood!
Apollo Diomedes: No more talk, Kyras. You have much to answer for. For what you have done to the Blood Ravens, much shall be avenged this day. For Gabriel! For the Emperor!
Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War II: Retribution

Nemeroth: Admit it, Titus. The power of Chaos is within you, calling to this relic. Imagine the Ultramarines dominating this galaxy in glorious conquest, with you at their head. Imagine the power you could wield
Captain Titus: — as a slave to Chaos? Nothing you say can tempt me from the path of honour — or from avenging the deaths of my battle brothers.

Jacques De Aldersberg: You always believed man makes his own destiny. I seek to change all humanity's fate.
Geralt: You robbed humanity of its right to decide. You understand nothing.

Prince Vorkken: The strong stand tall! The weak kneel! Such is the law of the universe!
Wonder Red: You're wrong. The truly strong are those who help the weak stand. Wonderful 100... Team, unite up!

Garrosh Hellscream: (laughs) Step aside, Pandaren. You confront a force beyond reckoning!
Taran Zhu: Your father dabbled in powers "beyond reckoning." Where is he now?
World of Warcraft: Mist of Pandaria


I... hate... The Silence of the Lambs. Every time I try to treat prisoners as people I have to sit through another variation of... "HELLOOOOO CLARICE! AM I TRAPPED IN HERE WITH YOU OR ARE YOU TRAPPED IN HERE WITH MEEEE?"
Rikk, Fans!

Head Alien: Look at their faces, Sal. They're afraid of you. I thought you wanted to put all this anger behind you. I-if you kill me in rage, you'll be right back where you started. Don't let the hate consume you. Think of you, Sal. Think of you.
Sal: Sometimes...(runs Head Alien through with a spear) gotta take one for the team.

#2. I will ignore the Evil Overlord's arguments revolving around honor and/or morality. If he were really all that worked up about either, he would never have become an Evil Overlord in the first place.
— "If I Am Ever a Hero"

Freeza: Well well well, I'm legitimately surprised I missed one of you! But that's just fine, because I've been working on some jokes. Now, tell me if you heard this one: how many Namekians does it take to—
Freeza: I see. Sending all your friends off to fight me all of your own. How gutless.
Goku: What? How was that gutless?
Freeza: Because... suicide is the coward's way out.
Goku (bored): Can we fight, now?
Freeza: Son of a— Yes!

Cell: Oh-ho-ho-ho my god, it's Tien! What, was Krillin busy?
Tien: (glares)
Cell: Come on, buddy, you can't be serious! With your power level?! You're no android. You're no Namekian. And you're certainly no Super Saiyan! You're just human.
Tien: Yeah, well, you know what?! Fuck power levels! Fuck Super Saiyans! AND FUCK! YOU! SHIN! KIKOHO!!
Cell: Oh, that's adorab- SHIIIIIIIIIIIT!!!

Cell: You know, if you want my personal opinion, "Kikoho" is a pretty sad choice of last words. But to be fair, it's far from the worst decision you've made today!
Tien: Kiko fuck yourself...!
Cell: Aw, see? That's the spirit!

Cell: Look at you! I'm gonna call you "Whoppin Cough", because you just devastated my children! And for a second there, I thought that yarn you were spinning was going to turn up short. But here you are! My final challen- [Gohan punches him in the guts] WOAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!
Gohan: Careful, Cell. Your Vegeta's showing.

Lex Luthor: Fool. You're just like all the rest -- building a suit to save the world, trying to play God. Let me tell you something, Stark! There's only man in the world meant to play such a role: me.
Iron Man: I don't know, Lex. Being a God can't be too hard. I mean...I'm the most intelligent, capable person on the planet. I'm not playing God. All this time, I've been playing human.

Lex Luthor: Say goodbye to the world you know, for from this moment on, you are all at the mercy of Lex Luthor, the greatest criminal mind the world has ever-
Green Goblin: Aaaaah, shut up! (throws a pumpkin bomb)

Thulsa Doom: My child, you have come to me, my son. Who gave you the will to live? What would your world be, without me? My son.
The Nostalgia Critic: (imitating Arnold Schwarzenegger as Conan) Well, gee, when you put it like that, FUCK YOU!!!
Conan: (beheads Thulsa Doom)

Kimahri says little, but understands more than he lets on. His finest moment is when he interrupts Seymour in the middle of one of his "look at me I'm an insane JRPG villain" rants by just walking up and stabbing him in the chest. This needs to happen more often.

Roman: Little Red, little Red, you are just determined to be the hero of Vale, aren'tcha?
Ruby: What are you doing!? Without these ships, the Grimm will destroy everything!
Roman: That's the plan!
Ruby: But why!? What do you get out of it!?
Roman: You're asking the wrong questions, Red! It's not what I have to gain, it's that I can't afford to lose! I may be a gambling man, but even I know that there are some bets you just don't take. Like it or not, the people that hired me are going to change the world! You can't stop 'em, I can't stop 'em! You know the old saying, "If you can't beat 'em-"
[Ruby activates Neo's Parasol of Pain, sending her flying away into the sky]
Roman: NEO!
Ruby: I don't care what you say! We will stop them and I will stop you! BET ON THAT!!

Jack Slash: So tough! So brave! All of this from the-
Golem: Stop talking, Jack. You're not that clever, not as sharp as you like to think. You talked to me about keystones? Bullshit. You're a sad, pathetic killer with delusions of grandeur.

Megatron: Aaaaah, Dinobot! Yeeees... (Dinobot transforms and prepares to fight) Oh, no no no, calmness, calmness, please! I came only to talk, yes! After all, you are alone in command of the Maximal Base! An excellent opportunity, is it not? You were a Predacon, once; become one again! Turn the base over to me, and the Beast Wars will be over! We Predacons will rule the Galaxy, and you shall be my second-in-command! What do you say?
Dinobot: (Evil Laugh) EAT SLAG! (Shoots Megatron)
Beast Wars, "Fallen Comrads"

Megatron: Face it, Dinobot, you're old technology, obsolete! What can you possibly do?
Dinobot: ...Improvise.

The Flash: Says you! I've got a seat at the big conference table. I'm gonna paint my logo on it! (punches through Evil Flash's chest)

Hunduun: Your real weakness, Po, is not the kick; it's your heart. It's as big and sappy as an old sappy plum tree filled with plum sap.
Po: At least I have a heart! But all I've done is been kind! And all you've done is blame me for your rotten life! And guess what?! I love plum sap! How 'bout that?!

Bataar Jr: And you of all people should realize that once a discovery is made, it is our responsibility as scientists to pursue it as far as we can, wherever it leads.
Varrick: How would you know? You couldn't discover a wolf-bat if it was building a nest in your butt.
The Legend of Korra, "Battle of Zaofu"

Bart: (smugly) Hey, Lise. I guess my little yearbook stunt was pretty rough, but it did teach you a lesson: it's important to be yourself.
(The second Marge is out of the room, Lisa angrily grabs Bart by the shirt.)
Lisa: (whispering, but otherwise practically screaming it into his face) I know EXACTLY who I am. I am the sister of a rotten, jealous, MEAN little sneak. (picks up a bottle of syrup, intending to squirt the syrup into his eyes) You cost me my only friends. YOU'VE RUINED MY LIFE.

Yellow Diamond: You have failed at every stage of this mission. Your only chance to redeem yourself is to obey this simple order: you are to leave the Cluster to grow. It will tear apart the Earth and I will take immense satisfaction in erasing that hideous rock off our starmaps! Is. That. CLEAR?!
Peridot: Then I won't do it! I can tell you with certainty that there are things on this planet worth protecting!
Yellow Diamond: What do you know about the Earth?!

Superman: (silence)
Lex Luthor: Oh, the silent treatment, hey? ...Well, I don't know what you thought you heard out there, but I know what you can prove, and it's nothing.
Superman: (silence)
Lex Luthor: You see, ah, "Superman"... I own Metropolis. My technology built it, my will keeps it going, and nearly two-thirds of its people work for me whether they know it or not. Even you have to admit it's a marvel of efficiency.
Superman: (silence)
Lex Luthor: And yet, I have often thought... why limit myself to just one city? A... being with your abilities could be very useful to me on a, shall we say... global scale? Why don't you float on in, and we shall discuss it?
Superman: (silence)
Lex Luthor: ...SAY SOMETHING! (throws an exo-armor model at him)
Superman: (casually catches and crushes the model with his bare hands) I'll be watching you, Luthor. (flies away)
Superman: The Animated Series, "The Last Son of Krypton"

Lex Luthor: I think he is gone; and not coming back. Admit it, child; you can keep up this charade only so long.

Ambassador: Enjoy your advantage while you can. The Reach tracked my every move. And when we're through with you, there won't be enough left for a DNA identification!
Blue Beetle: Nice death threat. Could it get any more technical and dull?

Wile E. Coyote note : I am not selling anything, nor am I working my way through college, so let's get down to cases. You are a rabbit, and I am going to eat you for supper. Now don't try to get away! I am more muscular, more cunning, faster and larger than you are, and I'm a genius, while you could hardly pass the entrance examinations to kindergarten. So I'm going to give you the customary two minutes to say your prayers.

Nightmare: Your greatest fear, your greatest failure, back to haunt you... FOREVER! [Evil Laugh]
Spider-Man: ...Uncle Ben?
Uncle Ben: [smiles] How's it goin', Pete? [they embrace] Still daydreaming, aren't ya?
Spider-Man: You got half that right, Uncle Ben. [Ben unmasks him and ruffles his hair] Man, it's great to see you!
Nightmare: "Great to see you"?! This is your ultimate failure! Your greatest fear!
Uncle Ben: Yeah, you said that. Who's the Gloomy Gus?
Spider-Man: Mr. Pasty? He's just pathetic. [to Nightmare] Nightmare, you don't know my Uncle Ben, and you sure as heck don't know me. You think this is some buried secret? Even though I couldn't save him, I live with what happened to Uncle Ben every day, but not in the way you think.
Nightmare: Huh?
Spider-Man: I took responsibility for this tragedy, and turned it into something special: helping people every day as Spider-Man. Guess who taught me that magic trick?

The Conductor/Amelia: Why not? I'm just trying to create a car with Alrick in it. What if you could create a car, Tulip? One where your parents are still together.
Tulip: But... then they wouldn't be my real parents. It wouldn't be my real life. They weren't... happy together.
The Conductor: I could make you a car where they are. I can make a car that's exactly how you want it to be. Just one big, happy family.
Tulip: You can't even make a car without any turtles in it! [hits the Conductor with a pipe]
