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. Now 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 me 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)

Izumi Curtis: Is that so? You sacrifice our country... just you officials can gain immortality, and enslave the world as your own?
Major Alex Armstrong: And I take it that Führer Bradley is also aware of these plans?
Brigader General Edison: He was created to lead this country for that purpose.
[The Central Soldiers present in the room all mutter amongst themselves upon hearing this information]
Edison: Why shouldn't we do it? We're creating a world without war!
Izumi: And you just have to murder the world first?
Edison: What would die would be reborn, what you alchemists refer to as reconstruction. We wouldn't be murdering the population like you said, they would be given eternal life while dwelling inside us! Don't you see we would bring together the world as one? All is one, and one is all! As the few chosen ones of Amestris, we would bring unity to the entire country—
[A disgusted Izumi slaps Edison in the face with her sandal]
Izumi: [To the central soldiers] So there you have it. You still on their side? The only thing these guys care about is themselves. Will you help them?
Edison: Now wait, listen men. You need to follow orders... that's the only way I can put in a good word for you—
[Izumi slaps Edison with her sandal again]

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.

Yukako: So its name is Reverb? ...Pathetic. I've figured out the secret behind your trick. All I have to do is avoid touching that writing. Now, I'll ask you this one more love me...right, Koichi?
Koichi: (says nothing)
Yukako: I'd advise against saying no...if you wanna keep living. I'm completely prepared to tear down this house and bury you in the wreckage. And if you die, you'll be mine for all eternity. You'll remain in my heart as a personal memory of love everlasting!
Koichi: (still says nothing)
Koichi: I have, but you refuse to listen...which is how I got wrapped up in this whole mess. So now, for the umpteenth time, I don't! Don't make me say it again!
(Yukako grabs Koichi with her hair in a fit of rage, only to see Koichi booby-trapped his jacket with a KABOOM kanji)
Koichi: Weren't you listening to what I said? Now that I have this new power, you can't hold me hostage anymore! You're touching the writing that's gonna blow you away. Not bad for a pants-wetting little shrimp, huh?!
(Yukako gets blasted out the window)

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.

Graze Ein: You monster! [gets remaining arm sliced off by Mikazuki]
Mikazuki: Look who's talking!
Graze Ein: Lieutenant Crank. Specialist Major Bauduin. My righteousness... [is stabbed through the chest by Mikazuki]
Mikazuku: Shut up. I can't hear Orga's voice.

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.

Full Frontal: One shouldn't place unwarranted hope in life that merely exists and then fades away.
Banagher Links: Even so!

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 sever 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 pay 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!

Asura: What's the point of destroying me? Madness won't disappear just because I'm gooone! Another one will take my place! There will be a new Kishin, an heir to my madness! He will rain insanity upon the world, just as I have done! That's the way this world will always be! Why can't you see your struggle is POINTLEEEEESS?
Asura: Waah! Stay away! (Gets punched so hard, he disintegrates)

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!

Diodora: Asia is still a virgin, isn't she? I don't want the Red Dragon Emperor's sloppy seconds.
Issei: Shut your mouth...
Diodora: I do rather enjoy the idea of stealing her away from you. Our own custom version of prima nocta!
Issei: Shut up!
Diodora: The mere thought of taking Asia as she calls out your name is absolutely delicious!
High School Dx D, right before the former gets demolished

Alister: Soon everyone like you will be erased from this world.
Kaiba: But I thought you hated violence.
Alister: I do.
Kaiba: That's a lie! It seems to me that you and your army of rejects plan to destroy every person who doesn't share the same lame ideas you do.
Yu-Gi-Oh!, Waking the Dragons arc

Niche's sister: A creature who can't discern right and wrong for herself, forgetting the heart of the Maka... forgetting the crimes committed against you... and you're aiding the foolish humans, you pitiful sister of mine! So, so wretched! Wretched beyond all imagination! Begone! Begone all of you! Begone! Begone!
Lag: Humans are foolish? Isn't someone who hurts their own sister foolish? Isn't the Maka foolish? Is there a living creature that isn't foolish? If you hurt Niche any more, even if you are her sister, I won't let you get away with it!

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!
Image Comics Maestros

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.

Scourge: As for you... I've got you figured out! I know why you hate me. I know... And it's just not the Fiona thing or that I'm better looking... It's all it takes is one bad day and you'd be just like me.
Sonic: No, that's not it Scourge. It's because all it'd take is a bit of selflessness... A little bit of decency... And you'd be just like me.
Scourge: (visibly shaken) I...

"My attempts to reason with you have always gone nowhere, Freeze, so forgive me if this time I don't even bother!"

Herr Kleiser: All that time in the ice slow you down, Rogers? You used to be faster than this, you know. Maybe that Super-Soldier serum they pumped into your hearth's finally...

Tro-El: "I hope the next large wave sinks you, Val!"
Val-El: "And I hope you live— to understand your own folly!"

Hardhead: So what? They call me Hardhead. (headbutts Sixshot) And that's really all you need to know.
Optimus Prime: You've got a bad reputation, Sixshot. (punches Sixhshot hard enough to leave cracks in his chestplate) Here's where we separate the truth from the hyperbole.

Maxima: "I remember you from before you got expelled. Rendll, isn't it? I will enjoy taking you down."
Rendll: "Let's see what that pathetic excuse for a school taught y—"
Maxima: (throwing a psychic dagger) "Stop talking".

Monster Bird 1: "Kal-El? It's not good running, Kal-El... You've been running for more than twenty years, Kal-El... Running from the death of your planet."
Monster Bird 2: "You should have died on Krypton, Kal-El, as you were meant to. You know that, don't you?"
Giant Worm: "Now, after all these years of running, your destiny has finally caught up with you... Here, Kal-El... Here in the Scarlet Jungle!"
Superman: "Leave me alone! You're all dead!"
Bone Beast 1: "Extinct is the word, Kal-El."
Bone Beast 2: "We're extinct, like all Kryptonians..."
Bone Beast 3: "Come and join us. Take your place in the shade of these broad crimson leaves... FOREVER!"
Superman: "Stay back! All of you! Stay back from me! I don't belong here! I'm not dead... I won't rot here with the rest of you! You can't keep me here! Don't you know who I am?"

Gideon: Getting rid of me...won't save you. You're your own worst enemies! Both of you!
Ramona: No, I'm pretty sure you're worse, dude.
Scott: You're definitely worse.

Empress Gandelo: Did he break your heart, girl? One more painful loss to add to your grief? Under all of your posturing, you are nothing but a mewling infant crying for love. So weak. So sad. And so utterly predictable.
Supergirl: In all your infinite wisdom, did you predict this?!
Supergirl punches her face

Hecate: Accept the truth of your existence or be destroyed! You cannot escape your destiny!
Hellboy: Gonna try.
Hecate: Time is coming to ring down the curtain on man. Already, the four horsemen are loose in the world. It is for us to darken the sun, turn the moon to blood, and put out the stars. Then you and I alone, forever in the dark—
Hellboy: Shut up! Not gonna happen... 'cause you're very, very ugly... and... you have a giant snake body!

Visitor: You'll do nothing, female! We—
Supergirl: (blasting their rayguns out of their hands) "Shut up, you contemptible cowards— You think I can't dispose of garbage like 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.
Child of the Storm: Ghosts of the Past

Batman: "We can do this easy, Kobra. Give me the antidote. If it works, you go free. You have the word of the Batman on that."
Kobra: "You waste both of our times. Both of us know the wine of violence. Both of us know that this must end here, with a long and heady draft of it. I will toast your death with it."
Batman: "You talk too much."

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?
Kazama: I will not give up.
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—
Tsukuyomi: Shut up. I have realized your true nature, Mikaboshi. For all your power, you are static. Is it because you are unwilling, or unable to learn from your mistakes? You cannot ever fully understand the human spirit, because you can never change. So shut up.

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: My friends did. Don't try to lecture me. You're just a deluded megalomaniac.
The Warlord: You don't deserve to live, you worthless piece of shit. What have you done? Who have you saved? Someone else always took the heat, a loved one always died. Nothing you ever do matters. Not because it's fate. Not because of some fluke. Because of you. Because you lived instead of others who deserved it more than 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.
The Warlord: Even if it's useless? How courageous!
Naruko: I won't lie down on the ground and throw a tantrum, no matter how hopeless it seems. I guess that's why I didn't end up like 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.

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.

Suika: "That wholehearted sentiment of yours will one day kill you!"
Kasen: "You! [powering up a Megaton Punch] SHOULD GIVE UP!"

Hector Hammond: "Now, Green Lantern, be sure to tell your fellow Corpsmen on the other side that the last foes you fought were known, collectively, as the Triumvirate of Terror."
Hal Jordan: "Go to hell, Hammond."

Shadow: You can try, but no matter what you do, you'll never be able to defeat me. I am-
Flash: The most powerful pony in the world. You're so great, strong and unbeatable...and full of horseapples! Yeah, like I haven't heard that a million times already. And not just from you. Everypony I've ever faced has spouted the same trash again and again, and yet you'll notice that I'm still here and they're all history. So forgive me if I hit the skip button on this little cutscene.
Shadow: I will admit, it's true that the record of good versus evil is a little one sided, yet you've failed to notice one thing. No matter how much evil you vanquish in this world, it comes back in some other shape or form. Even if you defeat me, I'll simply be replaced by another villain wanting the exact same thing as me. It'll never end. Like Faust said, there can be no good without evil. That means Equestria will always be under threat from something. Yet you chose to keep fighting, knowing you'll never truly win. Why? Why do something so pointless when you can end it with my rule?
Flash: Seriously? That's totally obvious. I fight so others don't have to.
Shadow: What?
Flash: You're right, I can't rid the world of evil, it's a part of the world. But even if I can't get rid of it, that doesn't mean I can't stop it from ruining the lives of those I care about. Yeah, the world's not perfect, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't stop trying to protect it. Even if the world is filled with darkness, it has just as much light in it. And that light is created by ponies doing what they love, what they believe in, and what makes those they care about happy. So you're right, I can't keep villains like you from attacking. But I can keep you from stopping everypony from doing what they love. And to me, that a pretty special thing to fight for.

Red Skull: Because it is finally, finally, the end of our age. Is that impossible for you to see?
Captain America: I see nothing but a disease I'm sworn to eradicate. The disease of Nazism.
Red Skull: Ah. But do you not see, Captain? That is a disease you will never wipe out. Nazism is the Strength of Man. The will to be strong, to conquer, to dominate. The very will that led your pioneers to conquer this country, to subdue its inferior races—
Captain America: Shut your mouth, Skull! I'm warning you.
Red Skull: Warning me? Of what? How much of your history do you really know, Captain? If your Red Indians wrote your history books, or the Chinese immigrants, or the schwartzes whom you took as slaves, the ones who are now at your throats, or even the damnable you think they would read in the same fashion? Those races are rising up against you now, Captain. And America is too weak to consider the final solution. That is because you have no strength.
Captain America: You've felt this strength before, Skull. You've felt it every time we've met, from the Forties till today. It's the strength of America, Skull. The strength of democracy, of compassion, of the ability to recognize our mistakes and strive to correct them. Our history's there, all right. We've made as many blunders as any other nation. But none of those minorities, those 'inferiors', as you call them, are trying to leave. Every one of them knows of the greatness of America, of its freedom and opportunity. Despite whatever disadvantages they may have here, they're staying, and fighting for their rights. And I stand with them. I've met the ones you spoke of...the Indians, the Asians, the blacks, and yes, the Jews. Every one of them has accepted me as a brother. None of them rejected me for being a white man, a Christian, or an American. All right, maybe it is because I'm called Captain America. But that name means a lot, Skull. It stands for a lot. And it'll always stand for something better than yours. No matter what happens today, it'll always stand.

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?

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.

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.
Batman to the Joker, Batman: The Killing Joke

Riddler: I repeat: WHAT DO YOU THINK OF ME NOW?
Batman: That you're the same insecure C-lister that you were before you went into the Lazarus Pit.

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—
Claudandus: NO! NO! There aren't any good men! They're all bad! They're all the same! Animals are good creatures! But humans...are evil animals!
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!
Claudandus: You can't begin to imagine how deeply I regret this, Francis.

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!

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

Evelyn: It's for your own good!
Winston: No! This is! (jumps off the jet)

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.

Norman: You're just like them, Agatha!
The Witch: No, I'm not!
Norman: You're a bully!
The Witch: No, I'm NOT!

We'd never join you, and it's because we are stronger! Because we are invincible! Because - we have the power! We have to protect them from YOU! It's you who has to be feared! Because you ARE a monster! You ARE Evil! And you... are... it!

Kingpin: (having had his Evil Plan foiled, and utterly beating the new Spider-Man into the ground) The real Spider-Man couldn’t even beat me! You’re nothin'! You took my family. And now, I’m gonna make sure you never see yours again.
Spider-Man: (gets back up) I’ll always have my family. You ever hear of the shoulder touch?
Kingpin: ...What?
(Spider-Man places his arm on Kingpin's shoulder)
Spider-Man: ...Hey.
(Spider-Man unleashes a massive Venom Strike, incapacitating the Kingpin once and for all)

Lotso: I didn't throw you out. Your kid did. Ain't one kid ever loved a toy, really. Chew on that when you're at the dump.
Woody: Wait. What about Daisy?
Lotso: I don't know what you're talking about.
Woody: Daisy? You used to do everything with her?
Lotso: Yeah, then she threw us out.
Woody: No, she lost you.
Lotso: She replaced us!
Woody: She replaced you. And if you couldn't have her, then no one could! You lied to Big Baby, and you've been lying ever since! (reveals Big Baby's locket)
Lotso: Where did you get that?!
Woody: She loved you, Lotso.
Woody: As much as any kid ever loved a toy. (tosses the locket to Big Baby)

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? (glances back at Gorgo, who nods once) This! Is! SPARTA! (kicks messenger down a well)

Loki: In the end, you will always kneel.
Old Man: [stands] Not to men like you.
Loki: There are no men like me.
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 Hulk... interrupts, resulting in Loki ending up defeated and dumbfounded on ground in short order)
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.

Ego: Listen to me! You are a god! If you kill me, you'll be just like everybody else!
Peter Quill: What's so wrong with that?

Ebony Maw: Hear me, and rejoice! You are about to die at the hands of the Children of Thanos. Be thankful that your meaningless lives are now contributing to the-
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!"

Thanos: I am... inevitable. (snaps the fingers of the Infinity Gauntlet)
(nothing happens)
Tony Stark: (forms his own gauntlet with the stolen Infinity Stones) And I... am... Iron Man. (snaps his fingers, destroying Thanos and his entire army in one fell swoop at the cost of his own life)

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

Two-Face: You're a man after my own heart, son! I'll See You in Hell!
(Robin considers this, before reaching his arm out to Two-Face)
Robin: I'd rather see you in jail.

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)

Koba: Caesar brother to humans! Koba fight for ape! Free ape!

Mrs. Robinson: Elaine, it's too late!
Elaine: Not for ME!

Professor Remus Lupin: You sold James and Lily to Voldemort, didn't you?
Peter Pettigrew: I didn't mean to! The Dark Lord. You have no idea the weapons he possesses! Ask yourself, Sirius! What would you have done? What would you have done?
Sirius Black: I would have died!
[Pettigrew crawls under piano]
Sirius Black: I would have died rather than betray my friends!

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

Pennywise: I am the Eater of Worlds.
Mike Hanlon: Not to us, you're not.
Mike Hanlon: You're just a clown.

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.
Gollum: What?

Joker: It's been a rough few weeks Murray, ever since I... killed those three Wall Street guys.
Murray Franklin: Okay. I'm waiting for the punchline.
Joker: There is no punchline. It's not a joke.
Murray Franklin: Okay, I— I think I might understand it. You... did this to start a movement? To become a-a symbol?
Joker: Come on, Murray. Do I look like the kind of clown that could start a movement? I killed those guys because they were awful. Everybody is awful these days. It's enough to make anyone crazy.
Murray Franklin: Okay. So that's it, you're crazy. That's your defense for killing three young men?
Joker: No. They couldn't carry a tune to save their lives.
[The crowd boos and jeers]
Joker: Oh, why is everybody so upset about these guys?! If it was me dying on the side-walk, you'd walk right over me! I pass you every day, and you don't notice me! But these guys -- what, because Thomas Wayne went and cried about them on TV?!
Murray Franklin: You have a problem with Thomas Wayne, too?
Joker: Yes, I do. Have you seen what it's like out there, Mur-raaay? Do you ever actually leave the studio? Everybody just yells and screams at each other. Nobody's civil anymore! Nobody thinks what it's like to be the other guy. You think men like Thomas Wayne ever think what it's like to be someone like me? To be somebody but themselves? They don't. They think we'll all just sit there and take it like good little boys! That we won't werewolf and go wild!
Murray Franklin: You finished? I mean, there's so much self-pity, Arthur. You sound like you're making excuses for killing those three young men. Y'know, not everybody — and I'll tell you this, not everyone is awful.
Joker: ...You're awful, Murray.
Murray Franklin: Me? I'm awful? Oh, yeah, how am I awful?
Joker: Playing my video. Inviting me on the show. You just wanted to make fun of me. You're just like the rest of 'em!
Murray Franklin: You don't know the first thing about me, pal. Look what happened because of what you did. What it led to. There are riots out there. Two policemen are in critical condition— [Joker begins to laugh] And you're laughing. You're laughing. Someone was KILLED today because of what you did.

Agent Smith: (holding Neo in a chokehold) You hear that, Mr. Anderson? That's the sound of inevitability... It's the sound of your death. Goodbye, Mr. Anderson.
Neo: My name... Is Neo! (breaks loose of Agent Smith's hold)

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.

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.

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.

Kylo Ren: The Resistance is dead. The war is over. And when I kill you, I will have killed the last Jedi!
Luke Skywalker: Amazing. Every word of what you just said was wrong. The Rebellion is reborn today. The war is just beginning. And I will not be the last Jedi.
Kylo: I'll destroy her, and you, and all of it.
Luke: (de-activating his lightsaber) No. Strike me down in anger, and I'll always be with you. Just like your father.

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.
M: Your name is on a memorial wall of the very building you attacked. I will have it struck off. Soon your past will be as nonexistent as your future. I'll never see you again.

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!!!

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-dead skags 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.

Dr. Campbell: I think that's all we'll need you for, George, I know you're anxious to make a train.
George Bailey: I have a taxi waiting downstairs.
Dr. Campbell: I want the Board to know that George gave up his trip to Europe to help straighten things out here these past few months. Good luck to you at school, George.
George: Thanks.
Board members: Good luck! So long!
Dr. Campbell: Now we come to the real purpose of this meeting — to appoint a successor to our dear friend, Peter Bailey.
Henry F. Potter: Mr. Chairman, I'd like to get to my real purpose.
Board member: Wait just a minute now.
Potter: Wait for what? I claim this institution is not necessary to this town. Therefore, Mr. Chairman, I make a motion to dissolve this institution and turn its assets and liabilities over to the receiver.
Uncle Billy: Potter, you dirty, contemptible... I'll wring his neck, so help me, George, you hear what that buzzard...
Attorney: Mr. Chairman, it's too soon after Peter Bailey's death to talk about chloroforming the Building and Loan.
Board member: Peter Bailey died three months ago. I second Mr. Potter's motion.
Dr. Campbell: Very well. In that case, I'll ask the two executive officers to withdraw. But before you go, I'm sure the whole Board wishes to express its deep sorrow at the passing of Peter Bailey.
George: Thank you very much.
Dr. Campbell: It was his faith and devotion that are responsible for this organization.
Potter: I'll go further than that. I'll say that to the public, Peter Bailey was the Building and Loan.
Uncle Billy: Oh, that's fine, Potter, coming from you, considering that you probably drove him to his grave.
Potter: Peter Bailey was not a business man. That's what killed him. Oh, I don't mean any disrespect to him, God rest his soul. He was a man of high ideals, so-called. But ideals without common sense can ruin this town. Now, you take this loan here to Ernie Bishop, you know, that fellow that sits around all day on his brains in his taxi, you know. I happen to know the bank turned down this loan, but he comes here and we're building him a house worth five thousand dollars. Why?
George: Well, I handled that, Mr. Potter. You have all the papers there. His salary, insurance. I can personally vouch for his character.
Potter: A friend of yours.
George: Yes, sir.
Potter: You see, if you shoot pool with some employee here, you can come and borrow money. What does that get us? A discontented, lazy rabble instead of a thrifty working class. And all because a few starry-eyed dreamers like Peter Bailey stir them up and fill their heads with a lot of impossible ideas. Now, I say-
George: Just a minute. Just a... Just a minute. Now, hold on, Mr. Potter. You're right when you say my father was no business man. I know that. Why he ever started this cheap penny-ante Building and Loan, I'll never know. But neither you nor anybody else can say anything against his character, because his whole life was... Why, in the 25 years since he and Uncle Billy started this thing, he never once thought of himself. Isn't that right, Uncle Billy? He didn't save enough money to send Harry to school, let alone me. But he did help a few people get out of your slums, Mr. Potter. And what's wrong with that? Why here, you are all businessmen here. Doesn't it make them better citizens? Doesn't it make them better customers? Y-you said that uh... what'd you say just a minute ago? They, they had to wait and save their money before they even thought of a decent home. Wait? Wait for what? Until their children grow up and leave them? Until they're so old and broken-down that they... Do you know how long it takes a working man to save five thousand dollars? Just remember this, Mr. Potter, that this rabble you're talking about, they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community. Well, it is too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn't think so. People were human beings to him, but to you, a warped, frustrated old man, they're cattle. Well, in my book, he died a much richer man than you'll ever be.
Potter: I'm not interested in your book. I'm talking about the Building and Loan!
George: I know very well what you're talking about. You're talking about something you can't get your fingers on, and it's galling you. That's what you're talking about, I know. Well, I-I-I've said too much. I... You're, you're the Board here. You do what you want with this thing. There's j-just one thing more though. This town needs this measly one-horse institution if only to have some place where people can come without crawling to Potter. Come on, Uncle Billy.

Uncle Frank: You'd better not wreck my trip, you little sourpuss. Your dad's paying good money for it.
Kevin: Oh, wouldn't want to spoil your fun, Mr. Cheapskate!

Eddie Arcadian: Where are you gonna go, Angie? Without me, you're nothing! Without that outfit, you're just another no-talent dental hygiene school drop-out from Kew Gardens getting by on her tits!
Angela Viracco: And in the end, Eddie, you know what? You're nothing but a misguided midget asshole with dreams of ruling the world. Yeah, also from Kew Gardens. And also getting by on my tits.

Sho'nuff: Alright, Leroy, who's the one and only master?
Leroy Green: I am.

Magneto: Why do none of you understand what I'm trying to do? Those people down there; they control our fate and the fate of every other mutant. Well, soon our fate will be theirs.
Wolverine: You're so full of shit. If you're really so righteous, it'd be you in that thing.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

"Marco, your mother loves you," I said.
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?>
Visser One being hit with a double whammy, Animorphs: Visser

Anton Chaigneau: We are the Order! We watch you people all the time, We Are Everywhere! Can you begin to imagine our power?
Matthew Swift: So powerful you can't even kill Bakker by yourself. You need us to do your work for you. We know you. We heard your voice inside our mind, when you whispered into the phone. You are an infestation in our skin, a worm in our flesh. You're part of us. Think about that next time you shoot us!

"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.

Anti-Monitor: I am destiny incarnate. Inexorable and inescapable. You are nothing; insects fated to be crushed beneath my heel without a moment's thought. Fighting is useless. Surrender.
Sara: Not today; not ever. Oliver died so that we could continue to fight. He sacrificed everything for this new world, and we will not fail him. We will not fail this world. For Oliver!
Kara: For Oliver.
Barry: For Oliver.
Dig: For Oliver!
J'onn and Alex: For Oliver!

The Doctor: Why should I? You never did!

"You think you've broken me? You'll have to try harder than that. You've given me a gift of myself. You think that could destroy me? You think that makes me lesser? It makes me more. I contain multitudes, more than I ever thought or knew. You want me to be scared of it because you’re scared of everything, but I am so much more than you."

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?

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.

Livewire: Your 15 minutes are up, you boring, weak...
Supergirl: Oh, shut up, you mean girl.

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.

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.

Rakshas: You slimy little elf! So you have joined hands with these humans, have you? Very well, both of you shall soon be dead!

Rakshas: Hahahaha! You fools, do you not see that you are right in the heart of orcish territory, surrounded yourselves! Why, at this very moment my entire western army is marching this way. They will soon be here and will scatter your forces like straw!

Aesir: To be the Overseer of this world, to rule it... A power only meant for Aesir. Human free will is a joke; it is a worthless illusion. You need only obey me. My will shall become that of the universe!
Balder: Humans need not be told what their will shall be. We can create our world with our own eyes!
Aesir: An indulgent statement of human folly. Do you have any idea how much turmoil and confusion you have created?
Balder: We may not see our next step. We may stumble, we may fall off the path. But we always move forward. That is the power of man! Bayonetta, shall we illustrate?
Bayonetta: Let's rock.

Richter Belmont: Die, monster! You don't belong in this world!
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!
Dracula: What is a man?! A miserable little pile of secrets! But enough talk, HAVE AT 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!

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.

Fire Emblem Awakening, "Invisible Ties"

Sephiroth: Do not worry. Soon, the girl will become part of the Planet's energy. All that is left is to go North. The "Promised Land" waits for me over snowy fields. There, I will become a new being by uniting with the planet. As will this girl—
Cloud: (his text bubble interrupts Sephiroth's) ... Shut up.

Garland: Regrettable. I thought your soul would be perfect for a new Angel of Death.
Zidane: I am the new Angel of Death. Yours!

Myste: No... no... this is wrong... this is all wrong... I offer you peace! Restitution! A chance to make amends! Do not think you are above it! Do not think that a reckoning will be postponed indefinitely!
Fray: When it comes, I shall welcome it with open arms... but today will not be the day, and you will not be the judge!

Scrap Baby: You played right into our hands. Did you really think that this job just fell out of the sky for you? No. This was a gift... for us. You gathered all of them together in one place, just like he asked you to. All of those little souls in one place. Just for us. A gift. Now we can do what we were created to do... and be complete. I will make you proud, Daddy! Watch, listen. and be full!
Cassette Man/ Henry Emily: Connection terminated. I'm sorry to interrupt you, Elizabeth, if you still even remember that name. But I'm afraid you've been misinformed. You are not here to receive a gift, nor have you been called here by the individual you assume. Although you have indeed been called. You have all been called here. Into a labyrinth of sounds and smells, misdirection and misfortune. A labyrinth with no exit, a maze with no prize. You don't even realize that you are trapped. Your lust for blood has driven you in endless circles, chasing the cries of children in some unseen chamber, always seeming so near, yet somehow out of reach. But you will never find them, none of you will. This is where your story ends. And to you, my brave volunteer, who somehow found this job listing not intended for you. Although there was a way out planned for you, I have a feeling that's not what you want. I have a feeling that you are right where you want to be. I am remaining as well, I am nearby. This place will not be remembered, and the memory of everything that started this can finally begin to fade away. As the agony of every tragedy should. And to you monsters trapped in the corridors: Be still and give up your spirits, they don't belong to you. For most of you, I believe there is peace and perhaps more waiting for you after the smoke clears. Although for one of you, the darkest pit of Hell has opened to swallow you whole, so don't keep the devil waiting, old friend. My daughter, if you can hear me, I knew you would return as well. It's in your nature to protect the innocent. I'm sorry that on that day, the day you were shut out and left to die, no one was there to lift you up into their arms the way you lifted others into yours. And then, what became of you. I should have known you wouldn't be content to disappear, not my daughter. I couldn't save you then, so let me save you now. It's time to rest. For you, and for those you have carried in your arms. This ends. For all of us. End communication.

Athena: There's nowhere you can hide, Spartan. Put as much distance between you and the truth as you want, it changes nothing. Pretend to be everything you are not: teacher, husband, father. But there is one unavoidable truth you will never escape: You cannot change. You will always be... a monster.
Kratos: I know... but I am your monster no longer.

The Moonsick One: So it's you. I see that even death didn't want you. And now here you are. Stinking of snow and pine. Stinking of them. You wear their clothes. You bear their crown. But you are not one of them.
Madison: You're right. I'm not. Just like you'll never be a human.

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.
Yellow Lantern: I'm still about order, like the Guardians.
Green Lantern: I'm sure they're very proud of you.
Yellow Lantern: Sanctimony is easy when you don't know what-
Green Lantern: Save it. Time to kick my ass.

Regime Superman: I knew they'd pull you over eventually. You don't belong here.
Superman: My obligations don't end at the borders of my dimension.
Regime Superman: I am this world's savior. I protect it.
Superman: (incredulously) That's what's happening out there? Protection?
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!
Superman: I know what you lost.
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—
Superman: She'll be afraid and disgusted!
Regime Superman: She'll be alive!
Superman: Lois's death doesn't justify
Regime Superman: He stole her from me!
Superman: And you stole this planet's freedom! It's time to give it back.

Supergirl: Diana said the Joker was executed. Were you the one who...?
Superman: I took one life to save millions.
Supergirl: But it wasn't just one, Kal, was it? How many? How many?! Everywhere I go, people are afraid of this... Now I know why.
Superman: It's not how I wanted things. But humans... They've been slaughtering each other for millennia. I stopped that violence.
Supergirl: (lost for words, looks at Superman with a horrified expression)
Superman: Humans need strong leadership. We have to save them from themselves.
Supergirl: Whose son are you? Jor-El's? Or General Zod's?

"You shut your mouth, Medusa! Lady Palutena is nothing like you! Who turns people to stone and poisons the rivers? Who reduces cities to rubble? And who is leading the Underworld's destruction of the land and heavens? Not Lady Palutena! You're the one responsible for all this, Medusa!"

Ansem: All worlds begin in darkness, and all so end. The heart is no different. Darkness sprouts within it, it grows, consumes it. Such is its nature. In the end, every heart returns to the darkness whence it came! You see, darkness is the heart's true essence.
Sora: That's not true! The heart may be weak, and sometimes it may even give in. But I've learned that deep down, there's a light that never goes out!

Hades: Let's cut to the chase. Here's the deal I'm gonna offer you. I'll let you out of the slammer— no strings— you'll be free as a bird. And all for one little job: fight Hercules, in the Coliseum, to the death!
Auron: This is my story. And you're not part of it.
Hades: Did you forget who you're talking to?! I am the Lord of the DEAD!
Auron: Hmph. No wonder no one wants to die.

Xemnas: You accept darkness, yet choose to live in the light. So why is it that you loathe us who teeter on the edge of nothing? We who were turned away by both light and dark—never given a choice?
Riku: That's simple. It's because you mess up our worlds.

Xemnas: Sora, are you certain you can trust Riku?
Sora and Riku: (both use reaction commands to throw a skyscraper at Xemnas)

Vanitas: It's always about your friends now, isn't it?
Ventus: At least I have some!

Young Xehanort: What, "your friends are your power"? Hmph. How very true. But if the light of friendship is a form of power... the darkness of being alone is a power even greater. Darkness is the heart's true nature.
Woody: Whatever you're talking about, I don't care. Put Buzz back the way he was, then get lost!
Young Xehanort: Or else what, toy?
Woody: Yeah, I am a toy. And a friend. (marches forward, pushing back Xehanort's darkness with each step) My guess is that no one's ever loved you before. Because you know nothing about hearts and love.

The King of Sorrow: Sob... Why... why do you... hate sorrow? Can't you... can't you accept sorrow at all...? Is there no place for me... in this world?!
Leorina: Don't flatter yourself! You isolated yourself from the world, thinking that you're the only one who's sad! You make me sick!

Weissmann: Hah...STILL sticking to the 'mutual assistance' argument and invoking the power of 'human bonds,' of all things... I would ask you to read a history book before saying such nonsense, Ms. Bright. As an example, consider the overpowering, nation-crushing machine called 'war.' Is man not only capable of being ground beneath its treads?
Estelle: Absolutely not! In the middle of the biggest war in Liberl's history, my mother gave her life to save mine! And because of that, I chose the path of a bracer, and now...look at me! I'm here to stop the crisis YOU caused and prevent another war from breaking out! All thanks, in the end, to my mother! Hell, I'd say you just made my point for me! People are NOT powerless! Not against anything!
Weissmann: Pfeh! You're quite good at trite answers, if nothing else.
Estelle: If you really, seriously believe people are powerless...And you've really convinced yourself humanity can only be 'saved' by you turning us into emotionless superbeings... Then that makes you really pathetic, I think.
Weissmann: What?!
Estelle: I mean, that'd mean you've never known the joy of trusting someone or helping them. To think that your only smug satisfaction comes from watching people struggle...That's just...That's too sad.
Weissmann: Hmph...
Estelle: But even if I feel sorry for you, I am a bracer. I can't ignore the fact that you're getting a lot of people involved in your little pity party. Sorry, but I'm afraid we're going to have to stop you. By force.

Zant: You... TRAITORS!
Midna: Traitors? Ha! You want to know why none would call you king? It was your eyes, Zant. All saw it, a lust for power burning in your pupils. Did you think we'd forget our ancestors lost their king to such greed?

Ghaleon: What will guide this world if it has no god, Alex? What will save it from itself?
Alex: The only thing this world needs to be saved from is you, and we're here to do just that!

Dark Bowser: Still here? Has the dark power not crushed your puny hopes? Soon, this kingdom will vanish along with all who dwell within. And you too will sleep eternally in the dark power's embrace!
Bowser: GWAHAHA! Great dark hurricane! Seriously, perfect backdrop for an awesome final battle! You really sweat the details! Listen up! You're saying the kingdom will vanish? NOT TODAY! THIS KINGDOM IS ALL MINE! SO YOU VANISH! *SHOWTIME!*

Neves: What the fuck is your problem, man?
Max: My problem? My problem?! Wanna know what my problem is? You're turning humans into glue, that's what my fucking problem is!

Hub Hikari: We know a power much stronger than the evil soul!!!
Dr. Regal: Nothing's more powerful than evil! Be gone!!!
Hub Hikari: Regal, your evil plan ends here!!!
Lan Hikari: It's gone...
Dr. Regal: The Dark Power vanished?! No...This cannot be...
Hub Hikari: It's over...

Lumine: X... do you really have what it takes to stop us? You're merely tools of the humans. Tools of the old world. You think you can stand up to those of us who have evolved this far? (cackles) The world is changing. Therefore, it's only natural that evolution take its course. Now line up to be exterminated!
(Axl shoots Lumine in the shoulder)
Axl: Don't let him get to you, X. He's the enemy.

Weil: The desire for power. The joy of making everything work for you. You have no way of experiencing this without a human brain. It's the ultimate joy! No mere Reploids could ever understand!
Zero: I bet most decent humans wouldn't understand, either. You look like another Maverick, to me. All I gotta do is dispose of you like any other Maverick.

Zero: If I destroy Weil's core, the explosion will take Ragnarok out with it... If Ragnarok is blown apart, it no longer poses a threat!
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!

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!

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!

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

You used Akane for this ridiculous plan of yours? She was just an innocent girl. Everyone you'd made a Monarch had some form of trauma, but you treated them like tools, even toyed with their lives. You don't know the first thing about justice!

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.

Crimson 1: Just think, how many have you killed?
Diplomat: God just shut up!
Crimson 1: How dare-
Diplomat: Shut up! Nobody asked! You think we asked specifically to fight you?! You think I care so much to keep fighting you?!
Crimson 1: You’re wild dogs of course!
Diplomat: Shut up! Just shut up! Fight us! Don’t talk! I don’t care! Shut Up! (smashes his radio console)
Galaxy: (Beat) Uh, Dip’s radio transceiver is off.

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)
Chris: You're just another one of Umbrella's leftovers.

Iris: I think I might just start believing in fate now. Ah, the feeling of hating another with every fiber of your being... It's such an amazing rush...! Oh, I'm so anxious to rip you apart! What about you? You have the power of the world's finest magician coursing through your veins. How does it feel? Exhilarating? Intoxicating? Exuberant? Or perhaps such a puny vessel can't fully comprehend the magnificence of it all?
Lilli: (in defense of Spiritia) Tia will always be Tia! So there!
Spiritia: Thanks, Lilli. I don't really know if I possess Rosenkreuz's spirit... if I'm his other incarnation or whatnot... or if I inherited his ability to tap into the strength of others'... But none of that matters when it comes to magic. Freu... Zorne... Trau... Luste... Grolla... Sichte... Liebea... Schwer... and Lilli... It's because they support me that I have the will to fight. They're the source of my power. That much, I know for sure!

Akuji: Be thankful for the merciful deaths you and your rabble are receiving... it's nothing compared to what I will do to the Saints when I'm through here.
Wong: You talk too much.

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.

The Contessa: You're an ignorant child playing dress-up in his father's legacy. Oh, I know all about you and the Cooper Clan.
Sly: Then you'll understand why this Eye needs to be destroyed.
The Contessa: Short-sighted fool. I've no interest in your narrow interpretation of morality. I'm above all that, Above Good and Evil.
Sly: And you think I'd give the Eye to someone that's "above morality"?

Dr. M: That's right, Bentley. I know the pain you suffer working under your inferior.
Bentley: It's no secret, I'm smarter than the other guys. But there's more to it than that.
Dr. M: Like what?
Bentley: Like brotherhood.
Dr. M: "Brotherhood"? (chuckles) That's just what he wants you to think. It's a tool to keep you in line.
Bentley: No, that's the thing that keeps us happy and alive. It's why I'm going to stop you.

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.

Shadow: "Faker"? I think you're the fake hedgehog around here. You're comparing yourself to me? Ha! You're not even good enough to be my fake!
Sonic: (interrupting) I'll make you eat those words!

Merlina: This was to be our ideal world. But it will not last... King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table will end in ruin. The King Arthur my grandfather Merlin created led to nothing but mistakes... but I can succeed with the power of the scabbard, creating a kingdom that never ends.
Sonic: What good is a world that goes on forever!?
Merlina: My sorrow at its ruin runs deeper than the depths of the Underworld. Do you not understand!?
Sonic: No! And I don't want to!
(later, during the boss fight)
Merlina: You could never understand my sorrow at seeing the ruinous future of this kingdom.
Sonic: Good, 'cause I don't ever wanna know such one-sided sadness.

Infinite: This wasn't part of my agenda, but I'm always happy to crush a hero. It keeps the rabble in line. Shows them that there is no hope.
Silver: Does anyone but you believe your lies?

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.

Amon: You actions have not elluded my gaze, Artanis. Your plans are not hidden from me... and You Are Too Late. Behold the form of your god. The culmination of a cycle set into motion when the stars were born. As I was your beginning ,so shall I be your end. Know the truth, Artanis: your people, your beliefs, your Khala... everything, a lie. There is nothing left of you.
Artanis: You are wrong. We are finally free to become something more, and you will not stop us. Brace yourself for the full might of the Firstborn!

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!

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!

Sänger: I'm the one who should be saying that ! Moving Forward !

Dragon Master: Not one clan could stand up to me then, yet you are so bold as to now suggest that with your combined powers, you'd be a match for a dragon!? For ME?! You arrogant fool! You pitiful infant! Prepare to commiserate with your father! You'll be with him shortly.
T'ai: That's just as well. It's time I returned this to him!

Dragon Lord: Pitiful! You have no chance! You cannot win without the Sword of Mana! It is over! Accept defeat!
Masked Mage: Preposterous! Without the Sword of Mana, you cannot defeat me! I am like a god and you have no weapon that stands a chance!
Dark Majesty: You think you're clever, but without the Sword of Mana, you cannot win! It is hopeless! You are finished!
Faerie: You're wrong! Don't you see? As long as (main character) is here, the sword in our hearts called hope will never disappear!

Zoran Lazarevic (to Nathan Drake, who's aiming a gun towards him): You think I am a monster. But you're no different from me, Drake. How many men have you killed? How many... just today? (Nate advances on him) That's it, boy... No compassion, no mercy. (he spreads out his hands invitingly, but Nate refuses to shoot) DO IT!!
Nate: No.
Lazarevic: (Evil Laugh) You don't have the will!
Nate: Maybe not... but they do. (He starts retreating, just as the Guardians of Shambhalla show up and start beating Lazarevic to death)

Rafe Adler: You know, for all your "greatness," Nate, you have nothing. You are nothing. And I warned you... to get out of my way. (he clashes pirate swords with Nate) I have sacrificed everything to find Avery, and I'm not gonna let a couple of two-bit thieves, a senile con-man, and a washed-up journalist take it away from me! You care... about that pack of losers so much... then I'm going to make sure they join you!
Nathan Drake: En garde, dickhead!

Asav: You think you've won? note  More will rise up! Like the young king, you have achieved nothing!
Chloe Frazer: It's like you said... "Progress demands sacrifice." (she leaves Asav to fall to his death)

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: .................

The Evil Sandstream: Just look at all this... All of it, come to pass because of that girl. She needed money to save her sick mother. She chose to do it through the thing that she loved most: dancing. What I'm saying is, she did the right thing for the right reasons. But greed was her undoing... Enticed by a way to make even more money... she caused this. The justice you believe in so strongly... crumbles so very easily when faced with simple human desires. People can do terrible things in the name of justice!
Godfrey: Ohhh... Put a sock in it, will ya? Do you think I'm an idiot? Give me a break. Blaming all of this on the poor girl? Telling me there ain't no justice? You are the deluded one. All of this is your fault, and yours alone! You are just leading people into disaster for your own amusement!
The Evil Sandstream: Heh! All I ever did was to give them a gentle nudge...
Godfrey: I am done talk' with ya. It's time to put 'em up! Gird your loins for a nice big taste of steaming justice!

Isador Akios: Pathetic! You were great once, before doubt addled your will. Before you rendered judgment on Cyrene. Before you murdered the innocent and guilty, ALL IN ONE STROKE! You weak, sorry fool! How does it feel to have slain millions?! To have betrayed your own family?!
Gabriel Angelos: I betrayed NO ONE! Innocents die so that humanity may live. I ended their suffering, as I will end yours.

Aun'el Shi'Ores: Your tyrant does not rule here, invader!

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!

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!

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.

Robo-Fizz: (Evil Laugh) Is that Blitz-o my sensors spot up the-e-ere? I guess the kiddies are still running away from you, huh? (continues laughing)
Blitzo: The "o" is silent now.
Robo-Fizz: A-Aww... just like your audience always was when you to-told your lazy jokes here! (more laughter)
Blitzo: Bitch, I make more money killing people than you do being a cheap-ass robo-ripoff of an overrated sellout JESTER!
Robo-Fizz: Oo-o-oh! Someone's salty! Real or not, though, people lo-ove me! Does anybody love yo-o-ou, Blitz-o?
Blitzo: No. (lifts his rifle) But I'm really good with guns now! (loads a full clip) Dance, bitch! (opens fire)

Blueblood: Why are we continuing with this charade?! Is this your handiwork, dirty human? Did you set this up just to rub my defeat in my face?!
Phoenix: Of course not. It's our duty as keepers of the law to find the truth — the whole truth. If all you care about are your own personal victories, then I suggest you find another occupation!
Blueblood: Grr! You! You little blue cretin! You dare disrespect me?! ME?! PRINCE BLUEBLOOD?! Nephew to Princess Celestia her—
Phoenix: I don't care WHO you are! I'm here to find the truth! And if you aren't here to do the same, then the only "experience" you're going to get with these trials... is how to severely damage your own judicial system!

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!

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!!

"You want to compare us, freak? Maybe we both had bad days. Days where nothing went right, days where we were too slow, too stupid, too weak, unprepared or tired. Days we'll look back on for the rest of our fucking miserable lives, wondering what we would have done different, what we could have done better, how things could have played out. The difference between us is that I actually did something with my life, and I'm still trying to do more while I serve my sentence!" He stopped and took a breath. "You started your big projects, got every fucking person in the world to get their hopes up, and then you failed to finish anything because you couldn't hack it when your fucking family got killed! You insult their fucking memories every motherfucking second you exist like this!"

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.

Grunty: Fly, my mighty broom!
Kazooie: And Grunty still hasn't shut up. Oh, God I'm bored to tears.
Grunty: Now you meet your doom!

    Western Animation 
The Leader: I knew you would come eventually, my old enemy. But you of all people must realize this is for the best! In Gamma World, no one will hunt you. No one will try and cure you! You'll be a king! Everyone who hated you, who attacked you, they will BE you! Are you REALLY going to try and stop me?
The Hulk: No... Not stop you - SMASH you!

Abomination: You're useless, bug! You know that, right? Even the guys with no powers, with the shield and the bow, even they put out more of a fight! You? You're NOTHING!
Wasp: Maybe so, but I'm still gonna kick your sorry hide!

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.

Sarah: Ed! You listen to me, mister! You can't kick me out! I LIVE HERE TOO!!

Tulip: You can't just make whatever car you want.
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]
Infinity Train, "The Engine"

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"

Unalaq: I can't believe Tenzin sent his daughter [to the spirit world] instead of coming himself. What kind of father is he?
Jinora: Better than you.
The Legend of Korra, "A New Spiritual Age"

Daybreaker: You can't destroy me! I'm everything you want to be!
Princess Celestia: NO, YOU'RE NOT! You're not real. And you will never exist again!

Wile E. Coyote: 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.
Bugs Bunny: I'm sorry, mac, the lady of the house ain't home, and besides, we mailed you people a check last week. (closes door)

Yosemite Sam: Any one o' you lily-livered, bowlegged varmints care to slap leather with me? In case any o' you get any idears, ya better know who you're dealin' with. Ah'm the rootinest, tootinest, shootinist bobtailed wildcat in the West!
(He fires his guns into the ground which lift him into the air briefl)
Sam: Ah swings the fastest guns north, south, east AAAAAAAAAAAND west of the Pecos! Ah'm the—
Bugs Bunny: EH, SHADDUP!
Sam: Did I hear someone say, "Shaddup"?!
Bugs: (revealing himself) Eeyup.

Aku: A giant stone samurai... really?
Robo-Samurai: (Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs to the face)
Samurai Jack, "CI"

Adora: Catra, stop. You have to—
Catra: It's always the same with you, Adora. "I have to do this. Oh, we have to do that." Let's be honest, all of this is your fault. If you hadn't gotten captured, your sword wouldn't have opened the portal. If you hadn't gotten the sword and been the world's worst She-Ra, none of this would've happened. Admit it, Adora, the world would still be standing if you had never come through that portal in the first place. You made me this. You took everything from me. You broke the world, and it is all your fault.
Adora: ...No. It's not. I didn't make you pull the switch. I didn't make you do anything! I didn't break the world, but I am gonna fix it. And you? You made your choice. Now live with it!
(Adora punches Catra in the face, knocking her out)

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?!
Peridot: Apparently more than you, you CLOD!
Steven Universe, Message Received

Lex Luthor: (spots Superman hovering outside) I am afraid we already have a window washer.
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.
Supergirl: You'd be surprised what I can do. (blasts Luthor's remote off his hand)

Evil Flash: Slacker! Child! Clown! We have no place here among the world's greatest heroes!
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)

Toffee: You think you've won? HA! You don't make the plans! I DO! ME! Only I know how this all turns out!
Ludo: (Drops a pillar on Toffee) It turns out you're dead.
Star vs. the Forces of Evil "Battle For Mewni"

Shredder: Your hairy little friend knows me as Oroku Saki. But you may call me... the Shredder.
Raphael: A kitchen utensil?
Shredder: You would be wise to lose your flippant ways if you wish to join the honorable Foot Clan!
Leonardo: Why should we wanna do that?
Shredder: Because it was I who made you what you are today. If not for me, Hamato Yoshi would never have left Japan. I followed him to this country, where I gained my advanced technology, including my rare experimental mutagen. It was I who caused you to mutate into your humanoid form! You owe everything to me! Don't deny your destiny. Join me.
Raphael: Does the phrase "go suck a lemon" hold any meaning for ya?

(Nightmare has forced Spider-Man to face an illusion of his Uncle Ben)
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?
Ultimate Spider-Man, "Strange"

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?


How well does it match the trope?
