Examples of characters telling the bad guys where to shove it for Video Games.

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!
Eryssa: Good luck, you monster. You are cut off and surrounded. We shall kill you and feed your carcass to the vultures and wild beasts.
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!
(Hamel arrives with his forces)
Hamel: Will they, now?
Rakshas: What?!
Hamel: Your western army has been slaughtered, Rakshas, and you will soon join them!
Rakshas: But... but... how can this be?
Hamel: It's called "The End", foul orc. Forward! FOR KNALGA!!
Ro'Arthian: FOR PEACE!!
Camerin: FOR FUN!
Eryssa: FOR HIDEL!!
Battle for Wesnoth, "Northern Rebirth"

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.

Hazama: Dolls don't have "lives!" They got jack shit!
Makoto: A-A doll?
Hazama: Soul or not, if it was meant to be used by human hands, then it was obviously meant to be used as a tool by humans! I mean, seriously! But wait... I guess that would make beastkin tools too, huh?
Makoto: Shut the hell up! We were never tools, you stupid asshole!
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift

I'll never forget what the Head Monk told me right before I left the Abbey: "Child, you have so much left to learn" he said. I imagine he would have continued speaking, had I not pulled the trigger.
Maya the Siren, Borderlands 2

The time has come for you to shut the hell up, Lionwhyte!

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!
Dracula: Ha! Mankind. A cesspit of hatred and lies. Fight for them, then, and die for their sins!

Tiamat: Has the Council reduced the Horsemen to common assassins? (drops a dead Ordo in front of War) Or has Samael bought your loyalty? Because if you are for sale, rider... perhaps we could strike a deal.
War: You won't like my terms.

Dr. Samuel Hayden: I'm willing to take full responsibility for the horrible events of the last twenty-four hours, but youmustunderstand: our interest in their world was purely for the betterment of mankind.
[the Doom Slayer glances down at the butchered corpse of a UAC worker]
Dr. Samuel Hayden: Everything has clearly gotten out of hand now, yes, but it was worth the risk, I assure you.
[the Doom Slayer cracks his knuckles, literally trembling with rage, and punches the comm speaker]

Deag Ranak: The Sacrament of this world to the great Khan Makyr will be made, and its energy will be restored once again!
Deag Grav: ... as it is written, from the souls of the non-believers!
Deag Ranak: You will not save them from their judgment!
[The Doom Slayer turns around and glares at them while pumping his shotgun]

Dark Lord: Tell me...have you nothing to say to your creator...before you strike him down?
The Doom Slayer: No.

Gold Pig: (to Pink) You could have used your powers to become anything you wanted. Instead, you chose to destroy everything!
Blue Thief: No, it was your greed that ruined everything, Gold Pig! You used your powers to hinder the rest of us. You made us into your slaves!
Gold Pig: ...
Blue Thief: This society suffocated because you always wanted more!
Gold Pig: I saw opportunities... make it better for myself! I made my own wealth. What should I have done??? Give everything away for nothing?!

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.
Fallout 4: "Blind Betrayal"

Arcade Gannon: You got the survivors of the Enclave back together so you could convince them to help Caesar?! What are you thinking? Do you want to see Vegas turned into the new slave capital of the west?
The Courier: The Legion is better than the alternative.
Arcade Gannon: What?! Caesar is going to enslave or kill everyone in the Mojave. And when that's done, he'll try to destroy the NCR senate and install himself as its new military dictator. I can't comprehend how Caesar could so extensively scramble your sense of morality to make you think the Legion is a better alternative to anything. And you know what? I'm not going to stick around to try to figure it out. At least legionaries have the excuse of being born into it. Have a nice life.

Citra: Jason, why must you leave? You will stop being a warrior, a hero. Your friends, they will move on, have kids and boring lives. Stay here. The jungle will always be there for you, and you will always be king. With them gone, you never have to leave.
Jason: This violence is over. I'm done. No more blood.
Far Cry 3, "Save Friends" ending

Walhart: Why do you resist me, little Prince?
Chrom: You enslave the weak and kill the able. You are the enemy of peace.
Walhart: I would end the reign of the gods, and you object on moral grounds?! Blood is spilled in any new birth, Prince. And in many a just cause, as you know...
Chrom: There is no justification for what you've done.
Walhart: By whose laws do you judge me? Yours? Your sister's? The gods'?
Chrom: You cannot—
Walhart: Look at you! Are you not ashamed? Your mind is filled with nothing but secondhand beliefs. You dance upon the stage of your gods like a mindless puppet! THAT is what I reject: being a slave to tradition, to obligation. The old ways. Damn the gods! Damn their fates and their destinies! I will have true freedom! Any man who offers less is my enemy.
Chrom: Enough! I don't require every detail of your twisted philosophy. You're a villain and a murderer, plain and simple. And I am the justice you deserve.
Fire Emblem Awakening, "The Conqueror"

Validar: Avatar, why insist on these games? You only delay the inevitable. And besides, the alternative? Have you considered what happens should I fall? These followers of Naga will spurn you now that they've learned what you are. Kill me, and incur the wrath of the Grimleal as well... Would you truly choose to be so utterly alone?
Avatar: ......
Validar: Humans are weak, pathetic creatures... Your "bonds" with them will bind you. You are destined for a greater purpose! The GREATEST purpose! You are to be a GOD!
Avatar: ...Not your god — not today.
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.

Khotun Khan: We will be remembered... forever.
Jin Sakai: No. You will be forgotten. (cuts off the Khan's head)

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 Prophet of Truth: I am Truth! The voice of the Covenant!
The Arbiter: And thus, you must be silenced!

Cortana: Hello, John. It's good to see you.
Master Chief: You've changed.
Cortana: It was time. I know we have a disagreement. But once you understand my plan—
Master Chief: Your we do as you say.
Cortana: I'm offering people a chance to be more than they are naturally.
Master Chief: Like Doctor Halsey did for me.

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!
Max Payne 3

Victor: You know I'll walk...
Max: You'll walk... with a limp. [breaks his leg]
Max Payne 3

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 piece of- I sat here while you went on and on and on... You got NO right saying that to Sophie! Y'hear me!? You high an'-mighty, garbage-ass, judgy piece o' SHIT can't even show your own face! [...] She's bugged, huh!? She's worthless!? You got all that from five friggin' questions!? We're Sophie's friends, and we KNOW she's awesome! She's friggin' amazing! A million times better than you! SO SHUT THE FUCK UP, IDIOT!
Ryuji Sakamoto to EMMA, Persona 5 Strikers

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!
Zenkichi Hasegawa, to Shadow Konoe, Persona 5 Strikers

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 Zeppelin: 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 Rosenberg: 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.

Dissonance Zeta: Do you truly believe a world free of sorrow is one worth living in? A world without ignorance! That is what we will create together! The people in the World of Joy are a small sacrifice to achieve this perfect world! And yet you would deny me such?
Heart: Everyone deserves to be happy! Happiness is what keeps us away from the horrors of the world! What sort of life would you live if you were miserable all the time?! An unfulfilling one! No one would have the energy to achieve their goals! Soma would grow stagnant with misery!
Dissonance Zeta: How trite! You truly are the symbol of ignorance, Heart!
Heart: My purpose is to defend my home! I will protect my people and fulfill my duty!
Soma Spirits, Joy Restored Path

Form EX: Why does the prospect of eternal happiness elude you so? A world without hatred! A world without misery! The people of the World of Sorrow are a small sacrifice to achieve this perfect world! And yet you would deny such bliss?
Soul: Everyone deserves to feel the weight of reality! If people forget how to be sad and life were perfect... Everyone would become complacent! No one would try to better themselves! Soma would grow stagnant! Conflict would rise again!
Form EX: And why do you continue to hold on to such frivolous ideas?!
Soul: Because that is my purpose! I will defend my home! My people! And my very existence!
Soma Spirits, Sorrow Restored Path

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!

Silence!! And listen!! I am Sanger. Sanger Zonvolt! I am the Sword That Smites/Cleaves Evil!!!
Super Robot Wars: Original Generation, whenever some evil schmuck is rambling and about to get smote/cleaved

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

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

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

Sänger: If you don't value your life, you're welcome to try me. Thoses who will come forward will be cleaved by my Collosal Blade !
Sänger: SHUT UP !
Rishel: !?
Rishel: Wh.. What ?! Are you even listening to me ? You're gonna regret that !
Sänger: I'm the one who should be saying that ! Moving Forward !

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: .................
Vice: Project Doom

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!
Davian Thule: The Emperor rules all, alien! You'll learn that soon enough.
Aun'el Shi'Ores: You have nothing to teach me, zealot!
Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War: Dark Crusade

Tarkus: [The Chaos Space Marines] are taking note of you, Blood Ravens. Best to be Cautious.
Avitus: Enough! Enough of your orders and suggestions! Enough of your excuses! You are no martyr, Tarkus! You are a treasonous cur! A heretic!
Tarkus: In a way, Chapter Master Kyras set me on this path.
Avitus: Another place to put the blame.
Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising

Thaddeus:You followed. Could you not just leave things be for once?
Cyrus: We do not overlook betrayal, Thaddeus.
Thaddeus: You think I betrayed you? I did this to save us, all of us!
Thaddeus: Leave before it is too late. This does not have to end in death.
Avitus: Trying to "save" us again, whelp?
Thaddeus: It is pointless to argue with you. I did what I had to in order to stop the Tyranids.
Tarkus: Serving the Black Legion has nothing to do with the Tyranids.
Thaddeus: Not the Black Legion — Ulkair. I heard the daemon whisper to me on that battlefield. He said he could open the Warp. He could allow the Litany of Fury to reach Typhon. If not, Captain Angelos and the rest of our brothers would never escape the Warp. He asked so little in return.
Thaddeus: I do not wish to kill you, but you are not leaving me much choice.
Jonah Orion: If you have pledged yourself to Ulkair, you have already made the only choice that matters. You have chosen heresy.
Thaddeus: You were not there, Librarian! We stood on Typhon, we faced the Hive Mind. We saw the Armageddon destroyed, and we knew we could not win! I did what I had to do!
Jonah Orion: You are too eager to believe the lies of daemons, Thaddeus.
Thaddeus: You cannot know! You were not on Typhon!
Jonah Orion: No. I was on the Litany of Fury, facing down the Hive Mind itself! I fought that terrible intelligence for weeks, child! I felt it die as the bio-toxin reached the central hive ship. There was no daemonic hand in that victory.
Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising

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

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

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

Fallen Fool Garry: C'mon, Arlington! There's nothing to hold you back anymore! Why should you care about a bunch of dumb kids? They're probably gonna die anyway! Live a little!
Lamar Arlington: It's called professional ethics.
Garry: You don't even have a job anymore! It's the end of the world!
Lamar: All right, then it's called basic morality.
Garry: Pah!

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

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

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

Free Drone Bandit: We are the Free Drones, and we fight against the Protectorate oppression. Underrail Protectorate - the same faction that destroyed BioCorp, that enslaved North Underrail, that has committed so many atrocities and fed itself fat with the corpses of those who would not conform - is now here. Well, we don't want them here, or anywhere else but Hell! We are gonna stand up to them, 'cause we ain't a bunch of quakers!
Protagonist: Let Me Get This Straight.... You've stolen supplies crucial to Rail Crossing's defense against raiders in order to "stand up" to the Protectorate? Do you even think about these things, or do you just know how to shoot guns and regurgitate all those stock lines about oppression and other mumbo-jumbo?

How well does it match the trope?
