Hero: Doesn't look like it from this end of the field.

Maxius: (the room shakes from his angry booming voice after Barnabus has just passed out following his defeat by the hero's hands) HOW. DARE. YOU? (black smoke appears next to the unconscious Barnabus) You come into MY house. Reject my hospitality. Harm my other guests. And KILL MY BUTLER???
Hero: Well... I mean... I guess you COULD put it that way... Or... you could say that you kidnapped us all, and we've been trying to escape.
Maxius: I know I'm handsome, charismatic, and charming. You're probably thinking, how could a guy like that possibly be anything but a friend? But...'ve never seen me... (glaring, glowing yellow eyes appear within the smoke) ...when I'm ANGRY. (appears from the smoke in a more monstrous form)

"Why would I ever want to rule alongside such a coward? You don't deserve this. You have grown weak. I will take the power of the World's Soul. And I will rule in your place. This will be the beginning of a NEW Legion... MY Blood Legion."
Laken, after Dage reveals that he no longer wishes to continue his enmity with Nulgath, AdventureQuest Worlds

No, NO! Why! Why did this have to happen?
Red AISHA, Agents of Mayhem

Now you will never get her back. I am much older than you. Older than your first work of art. I will find a new face to wear. Someone else to dream me free.
The Dark Presence tried to claim Alan hasn't won, Alan Wake

This is Seegson executive Ransome, reporting in to the board. You sons of bitches. I was loyal to you and you cheap bastards left me twisting in the wind. I was going to give you the find of a lifetime. I was willing to risk my life for the company. I could have called in a special team, secured the specimen and we all would have been happy. But APOLLO has cut all communications. None of the technicians in APOLLO core are answering my messages. We're all dying here, you bastards! You threw it all away! Fuck you and fuck your company! Fuck you!
B. Ransome, Alien: Isolation

Stop it Daniel, you are ruining it. We are so close — I beg you. [...] I'm just like you, Daniel. A prisoner of circumstance. Trapped in a world I no longer recognise. As you gain your freedom, will you deny me mine? We are so close now. Closer than I've been for centuries. [...] No, you fool! You killed us — You killed us both!
No, you fool! You have ruined us!

If I want to live, I live. If I want to take, I take. If I want you to die, YOU DIIIIIIIEE!

You... You killed him... Daniel was like a son to me... A sickly son, perhaps... But one full of promise... He accomplished so much... and so well. And now you've taken him from me! From us! Like the Apple. Like Lucy. We want to help the world, Desmond. To save it from itself! But you keep getting in the way. All our hard work, ruined. You're a fanatic. All your kind. Maintaining the erroneous belief that we are evil. That the work we do is wrong. We enrich lives here. We save and transform them. But you... You just keep taking and TAKING WHAT ISN'T YOURS!!
Dr. Warren Vidic, Assassin's Creed III

No no no! Something's wrong! God damnit! She should be here! Now! Living in that god damned head of yours! Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck! Why did she spare you? Why are you still HERE?

H-How can he be... be so powerful? I am... the only... god...
Chakravartin the Creator, Asura's Wrath

Okay, loser. Here it comes...everything I've got...all of it! Might kill me, but you what? I don't care! Ah ha ha!
Gibril "The Full Metal Jacket", Azure Striker Gunvolt 2

I lost...? I lost. Even with the power to... Rewrite reality itself? Does not compute... There's no way... Hack the Planet... I won't... Let it end... I used the last of my power... To put "it" in motion.
Teseo "Hack the Planet", Azure Striker Gunvolt 2

Wh-What happened?! Our utopia... Our paradise! But we fused! The muse and I... We were... Compatible...

What? You did it? You've must have cheated. There is no way you could have beaten me. Well, you asked for it, Batman. My final challenge for the whole of Gotham is just seconds away... [sirens are heard in the distance] What? Sirens! The police! You cheated, Batman. You couldn't have outsmarted me! [the police knocks on the Riddler's door] ('Police! Open up.') No! ('I said open the door now!') No! [breaks in] ('Down on the ground! Down on the ground!') [police struggling Riddler] NO! [frantically] Tell me! How did you work out where I was? Do you hear me? I, Edward Nigma, will... [gets knocked out] Oof! ...Argghhh.
The Riddler, Batman: Arkham Asylum

No! You couldn't possibly have done that! How did you... Who helped you?! You cheated, I know you cheated! Oh, this isn't over, Dark Knight, oh no. Now things get far more difficult. People will die and you will be to bla- to bla- to bla- to blame.
The Riddler, Batman: Arkham City

I'll tell you what – I'll turn myself in as soon as you do the same. But you don't consider yourself a criminal, do you? The suit. The gadgets. The sense of entitlement? You're just another rich kid atoning for his fiscal sins. Such a shame.

No, no, no, no, no, no. This is wrong! All wrong! All upside down and inside out and wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong! [...] Stop it! Stop it right now! There's no winning down here! Not for you! I'm in control! You play by MY rules! You and Alice both! Do as I say! Do as I say right now! [...] [sobs] You've ruined everything! My lovely party all in tatters. The table overturned and the guests all gone! I think you should leave. In fact... I demand it!
[Batman finds "Alice" and the Mad Hatter, the former crying for the vigilante's help]
He can! He will! He just has to leave! He can! He will! He just has to leave! He can! He will! He just has to leave! Really now, you're becoming my pet peeve...
Mad Hatter, Batman: Arkham Origins

You left me to rot in that abandoned wing of Arkham for over a year... with him!
The Arkham Knight on the verge of hysterical tears, Batman: Arkham Knight

Oswald Cobblepot, after Bruce Wayne tells him his mother belonged in Arkham Asylum, Batman: The Telltale Series

Bruce Wayne: Harvey, no! This is not who you are!! You once said you wanted a better Gotham. Is this what you had in mind?
Harvey Dent: Oh, I wanted so much for this city, Bruce... but I failed. We were good friends once, Bruce. I'm glad you're here... at the end. Maybe you can remember me the way I was before... before him.
[Harvey flips his coin, but Bruce catches it]
Harvey Dent: Bruce, I need— I need the result!
[Bruce backs away]
Harvey Dent: DROP THE DAMN COIN!! Without the coin, I can't... I-I can't...
Bruce Wayne: Make your own call.
[Bruce pockets the coin]
Harvey Dent: Bruce... Please, I don't... I don't know what to... I can't decide! It's too much! It's too much. I can't... (curls up in a fetal position and starts sobbing)

Bruce Wayne: You're sick, Harvey. You think you can run Gotham after this?
Two-Face: You... you were Harvey's friend, Wayne. He thought you'd save this city together. Oh, but he... He was a fool for believing in you!!!
[Bruce throws a piece of rubble in Harvey's face]
Bruce Wayne: That's enough, Harvey.
Two-Face: You're... you're right.
[Two-Face pushes Wayne against the railing]
Two-Face: Two-faced move, I know... but sometimes, you have to make your own luck. One last call... A bullet in the head... or one in the heart? I'm feeling pretty good about those odds.
[Two-Face flips his coin, but Bruce catches it]
Two-Face: Give me the coin! I need... I need the result!
Two-Face: Where do I shoot?! DROP THE DAMN COIN!! Without the coin, I can't... I don't know what to do!
Bruce Wayne: If you insist.
[Bruce throws the coin]
Two-Face: No!!!
[Two-Face leaps after the coin and crashes down the stairs, unable to reach it]
Two-Face: Bruce... I don't know. I don't know what to do. I-I can't decide... It's too much. It's too much... I can't...

Vicki Vale: You've seen my true self. Your turn. Prove that you care... Take off your mask. Let me see the man you really are.
Batman: If that's what it will take to save him...
Alfred: No!
[Batman unmasks himself.]
Alfred: No, Bruce...
Vicki Vale: This must be some kind of... trick. Bruce Wayne, he'd — he'd never be the man Batman is. He only looks out for himself. Ah, but of course... now I understand. As Batman, you can prey on the weak, the defenseless. Just like your father did! A true Wayne! There's nothing heroic about you!
Bruce Wayne: You're right about my father. The things he did... are unforgivable. But I am trying to make up for his crimes. I wear this mask to help people!
Vicki Vale: I'm not some naive socialite you can sweet talk! I know a liar when I see one!
[Vicki blasts off a part of Bruce's ear.]
Vicki Vale: Hahahahahaha! No more lies! No more talk! The only truth... is in your death!

What are you doing? No no no no no! Impossible! You-You think you're clever, don't you? You d— You don't impress me. You might have bought yourself some time with that trick. But I have backup on the way. You're still going to die. Just like everyone else who spars with me. You think you beat me? I'll show you.

Joker: After everything we've been through together... this is how it ends?
Batman: I'll get you help. I won't abandon you.
Joker: You want me to go back to the beginning? To Arkham? Where it all started? I've come so far since then, Batman. Because of you. I believed in you, Batman. Like I never believed in anything. And it was all... a lie!
[Joker bloodily murders the three Agency agents around him, getting blood on his face]
Batman: John...
Batman: The Telltale Series (Vigilante Path)

BETRAYED! ABANDONED! I trusted you! I gave you everything... and you left me to rot! Why? WHY?!
Sammy Lawrence after being betrayed by Bendy, Bendy and the Ink Machine

Even in the book of lies, sometimes you find truth... There is indeed a season for all things. And now that I see you flesh to flesh and blood to blood, I know I cannot raise my hand against you. But know this: you are my greatest disappointment. Does your master hear me? Atlas!? You can kill me, but you will NEVER have my city! My strength is not in steel and fire! That is what the parasites will never understand. A season for all things: A time to live, and a time to die. A time to build... And a time to destroy!
Andrew Ryan, BioShock

I had you built! I sent you topside! I called you back, showed you what you was, what you was capable of! Even that life you thought you had? That was something I dreamed up, and had tattooed inside your head. Now if you don't call that family, I don't know what is!
Frank Fontaine, BioShock

Look at her, Delta. Ten years, and still she dreams of you. Do you know why Eleanor brought you here? She wanted a father. So she found a way to restore you in body and mind. And she has been watching you ever since, exalting your every act as gospel. The girl lying on that bed is no longer my child, nor my life’s work — She is a monster, shaped by you alone. Just as she has always wanted.

Porter! You have forced my hand, you see?! The Thinker has been shut down! That leaves only two variables: You, and me. The equation... ends... here!
Reed Wahl, BioShock 2: Minerva's Den

Hahahahahahaha! Ragna! Ragna! It's impossible, Ragna! Nothing will change! You can't change anything! Hahahahaha!

Hazama: Wow, you really are smarter than you look. To still come here after realizing that... you're a courageous one. And of course, I just HAVE to reward a soldier's courage. How about we... play... for a while? RESTRICTION 666 RELEASED! DIMENSIONAL INTERFERENCE FORCE FIELD... DEPLOYED!
Makoto: Just as I thought.
Terumi: Hehehehehehehe! Let's go, you little BITCH! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Die! Die! DIE! Hunters are killers, nothing less! You call me a beast? A beast!? What would you know?! I didn't ask for this!
Afflicted Beggar, Bloodborne

No, no, no...I can't die like this...not when I am so close...and not at the hands of a filthy bandit! I could've saved this planet! I could have actually restored order! I wasn't supposed to die at the hands of a child-killing psychopath! You're A SAVAGE! You're A MANIAC! You are A BANDIT AND I AM A GODDAMN HERO! The Warrior was practically a God. How- HOW in the hell have you killed my Warrior? You idiots! The Warrior could have brought peace to this planet! No more dangerous creatures! No more bandits! Pandora could have been PARADISE!
Handsome Jack, Borderlands 2

Dammit. DAMMIT! The Eye! That was ONE OF A KIND! The things I could have DONE! Friggin' liars — friggin' COWARDS! THEY'RE NO BETTER THAN BANDITS!

Wait wait wait wait wait... what are you doing? What the— Rhys, what the hell are you doing?! No-no please, please! Please don't do this! No Rhys, you-you don't know what it's like! Please... Hey, hey! I'm on my knees here! Please don't send me back there! It's not like they say. There's nothing... absolutely nothing there. Don't do this.
Handsome Jack A.I., Tales from the Borderlands Episode 5: Vault of the Traveler

All the Celestial Realm... and all therein shall know my power.. my terror.. mark... my... words...

You simple-minded fools! Do you really believe you have a chance?! This universe belongs to the Apothicons! You will be consumed! I offered you the chance to enter the beautiful blue light, and you denied my mercy?! You have followed a path marked by lies and deceit. Many others have failed, why would you be any different? This has always only ended one way. I have foreseen it.
The Shadow Man, Call of Duty: Zombies: Revelations

I'm saving the world from itself! When there's no one left to challenge Atlas, there will be no more wars! There had to be sacrifices along the way.

I. Am. Not. A. Mistake!

Brauner: (snaps and angrily breaks his cane) And now I must suffer the loss of my daughters to humanity again. I'll show you how that feels. And then I'll make those girls my daughters once more!
Jonathan: Now that's a problem. Sorry, can't let you do that.
Brauner: Behold, the power of my painting! (engages Jonathan and Charlotte in battle and they defeat him and bring him to his knees) Damn you, humans... You selfishly start wars and despoil the earth. Perhaps justice wasn't on my side but I will never admit that it was on yours.
Jonathan: Fine either way. After all, "justice" is just a matter of perspective. The fact is, you're just a coward who couldn't face the truth. You couldn't accept your fate, so you just abandoned humanity to get what you wanted.
Brauner: I just... I just wanted to protect my family.

How dare you... even forgetting... who raised you... you... stupid disciple!

Graham: I sense a power within you. Do tell me... what kind of power has awoken within you?
Soma: ... The power to rule...
Graham: WHAT!? You foolish boy! That's impossible!
Soma: Huh?
Graham: I can't remain here any longer. I must get to the throne! Your name is Soma, right? You are wrong, Soma! I will not allow you to rule!!!

Dmitrii: (dark energy starts flowing out of Dmitrii as he starts to become unstable) Th-this cannot be... My dominance should be complete!
Arikado: So that's what's happening...
Soma: Arikado, what's going on?
Arikado: The power of dominance isn't easily contained. He isn't like you. His soul can't withstand a power that intense.
Dmitrii: Liar!! I've heard enough from you! (casts Arikado out of the abyss)
Arikado: Gwoh!
Soma: Arikado!
Dmitrii: I am the chosen one! I am the dark lord! I shall not succumb to the power! Wroooooooaaaah! (his horrible condition gets even worse)
Soma: It's useless. You can't control it.
Dmitrii: Gwroaaah! (falls to the floor as the demons under his dominance burst out of his back) GAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

That language. It's ancient Enoquian... the language of Satan! Miserable traitors! Now receive your just rewards for your disloyalty! Betrayer! [...] May you and your spawn be damned forever!

If I cannot rule the world of men... then no one will!


Once again, the world is quick to bury me. How could my own Brothers believe that what transpired at the Temple Prime did not unfold exactly as I had planned? Of course, I could not have planned for an ambush BY MY OWN! FORCES!

Kha-Beleth: Traitor! You've grown as weak as your mother! Curse you and Isabel for failing me!
Leanna: Have strength, Sareth! Use some of mine if you must! [Kha-Beleth levitates her, intending to finish her off] Ah! Hurry!!
Sareth: Enough! Let the work begun by the Seventh Dragon be finished, here today by my hand!
[Sareth uses the Skull of Shadows to seal Kha-Beleth in Sheogh forever]
Kha-Beleth: Betrayer! I shall hunt you for the cur that you are, you and your pretty friend! Remember that... I am ancient and patient. One day I will be free, AND I WILL TEACH YOU THE FULL MEASURE OF AGONY!!!


Hellguard bitch! What did you do?! No, no, NO! I’m going to pull your guts out through your halo! [War gets up behind him, and Watcher gives an Evil Laugh] Just keep getting up. I’ll just kill you again. [War smacks him to the ground, causing him to back away] I was just following orders... like you... [War punches him to the ground again] W-What are you going to do? Fight the Council? Fight everyone? You’ll never get away... you hear me? NEVER! Don’t forget... who holds... the leash...
The Watcher, Darksiders

No! It was mine! All of it was mine! I had it! I deserved it! Mine!

My purpose in life... has been to get revenge for what you people did to Santa Cabeza... To my hometown. Why... Why was your meat so much more important to you than human life? Why... Why did my people have to die to feed your fat bellies?!

You compromised the compound, you... idiot! If any of them reach the Marker... Fall back! Fall back to the Marker chamber! We have to seal it off!
Director Hans Tiedemann responds to Isaac Clarke letting the Necromorphs into the Marker facility, Dead Space 2

Mama! I didn't do anything bad! Why? Why are you doing this to me? It wasn't me! I didn't do anything! I knelt and apologized in front of Anna, didn't I? I know I didn't with the others, but still. I didn't do anything wrong! know who it was! He's the one who made me do all this!
George Woodman, Deadly Premonition

What...? Pain!? How can I... feel pain?!

Connor, what are you doing? It all worked perfectly! You can't ruin it all now!

NO! You don't know what you are doing! Everything will be lost! EVERYTHING! The world will fall to pieces, no one will be in control! It will be CHAOS! Complete chaos!
Bob Page, Deus Ex

Adam Jensen: You know, I've always wondered about that leg brace of yours — why the father of augmentation doesn't have the most basic of implants... Doesn't make much sense, really. Unless he's one of the few people genetically incompatible with this technology. Huh. Gotta love the irony in that... It's the kind of irony that can tear you up inside, bit by bit, every day - until you find yourself despising what you're not.
Hugh Darrow: How dare you...! You think I've done all this because - because a fluke of nature robbed me of my chance to become a part of it?! I tried everything, damn you! Everything I could think of to change! None of it worked! NONE OF IT!
Adam Jensen: So you had to fix it, didn't you? Take back control. Make it like it never was.
Hugh Darrow: Yes! Yes, that's exactly what I— What I... I... What have I done?

Noohh... No...! My dream... my life...! I was going to be the king of this world!
Arius, Devil May Cry 2

Sheffield: There you are! What have you done to me?
O'Brien: You and I are dead. Accept it... We must join the circulation of data and await the end.
Sheffield: You're lying! I can't be dead! You fool... I have the power of God!

You can see how my plan should have worked? Would have worked! If everyone had just followed orders.
Lord Regent Hiram Burrows, Dishonored

This is all Martin's fault. If he hadn't helped Corvo out of prison, if Corvo hadn't been so damned good at his job. If we hadn't been greedy and afraid. If if if. Always too sure, that was my problem. Never hesitated. Too sure of what I wanted to do, when other men stopped to consider. Saw it as a weakness. I know Corvo's coming for me, just like he came for the others. Crossing the island below like it was nothing. It's only a question of how and when. But I'm lacking a countermove. It's all fallen apart.
Farley Havelock, Dishonored

Traitors! Which of you stood against the Orlesian Emperor when his troops flattened your fields and raped your wives? You fought with us, once, Eamon! You cared about this land once. Before you got too old and fat and content to even see what you risk. None of you deserve a saying in what happens here! None of you has spilled blood for this land the way I have! HOW DARE YOU JUDGE ME?!

There it is, right there. That damned look in the eye that marked every Cousland success that held me back. It seems you have made something of yourself after all. Your father would be proud. I, on the other hand, want you dead more than ever.
Arl Howe to The Human Noble Warden, Dragon Age: Origins

Your living body cannot handle the power! I will watch you burn and then spit on your ashes!

Mannimarco reacts to you managing to No-Sell his Worm Thrall spell, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

No! No, I'm too late! I thought I could get here in time, thought I could stop you! By Sithis, what have you done? What madness has claimed you? You have betrayed me, you have betrayed the Dark Brotherhood! Why? I am here to end your miserable life, to... But... I can see the confusion in your eyes. You... You have no idea what I'm talking about, do you?

W-what are you?
Theodore Wallace responds to Sebastian overcoming a Legacy Boss Rush, The Evil Within 2

What? What is that? What are you doing? You think a mere trinket will save you? Do you think anything can? Stop! Think about what you're doing! I will put an end to chaos! Stop now, you fool! You insect! I order you to stop! Sleep! I command you to sleep! Sleep!
Lucien Fairfax, Fable II

We stand now, at the precipice. A great nation once more threatens to crumble, to topple into the sea of lawlessness and despair that have ruled us all for over two hundred years. In short, my dearest America, we. Are. At. War. Even as I speak these words, fearless Enclave soldiers are fortifying their positions at the great water purifier. Bracing for an inevitable assault. The Brotherhood of Steel, in their arrogance, has claimed Project Purity as their own. They would steal the Enclave’s work. Steal America’s water. It’s only a matter of time before the traitors march on the purifier, and attempt to take it by force. Let them come. Wave upon traitorous wave will crash upon the Enclave’s walls. The Brotherhood of Steel will fail. All those who oppose the Enclave will fail. I am President John Henry Eden, and this is my pledge: No one, NO ONE WILL TAKE THIS GREAT NATION AWAY FROM ME! God Bless the Enclave. God Bless America.
John Henry Eden, Fallout 3

By the time I was 30 years old, I was a billionaire 30 times over. I founded and ran a vast economic empire. Do you really think I'm going to let an upstart come into my home and ransom my property to me? I spent two centuries searching for the Platinum Chip. It's my invention, my property - MINE! Now be a good courier and deliver it!
Mr. House, Fallout: New Vegas

Eh? What's this?... Alarms... What?! ...You. Think you can run? Think you can TRICK ME!? This entire structure is mine to command! Security, weapons, all this technology, mine! Now, you will die. You think you've outsmarted me? You're the one on a leash, you always were! Escape? No. That cold hand on your throat is mine. It always was! You can't outrun me! You were always under my control! Do you hear me? DO YOU HEAR ME?
Elijah, Fallout: New Vegas: Dead Money

I'm not just going to be discarded and tossed to the wolves. I'm the mayor, goddammit!

Another seal has been opened. My family... my brothers, my sisters, THEY'VE BEEN TAKEN FROM ME!! By a snake! In the garden!! I thought I knew God's plan... but I was wrong. I was blind... but now I see. You took my family from me so that I could have yours. We will welcome them with open arms... just as we will welcome you. We will be waiting for you. Where it all began.
Joseph Seed, Far Cry 5

That... That vulgar, low-class Servant! I must understand, I must calculate the... No, it's impossible...! I CANNOT comprehend this! How in the world did this happen?! They invalidate my calculations... All should be within the realm of my understanding, the margin of error! That thing... Under what principles does it operate?! No equation could predict the actions of that thing! Can this... be?! No, it can't... it caaaAAARRRGGGHHH! As crude as that creature is, she is a Servant chosen by the Umbral Star! We share the same level of power, and yet...! She does this! That fool would lay waste to my plans?!
Archimedes, Fate/Extella

Bleh! You people make me sick! You sound like lines from a self-help book! If that's how it's going to be... I'll snuff them all out! Every last one of your sickening, happy little reasons for living!
Kefka Palazzo, Final Fantasy VI

G-get out of me! Omega's host must be pure! Why did you think I had you make mako untainted by Jenova!? A filthy being like you infected it...

What comedy! Zidane, isn't it hilarious!? I'll die just like the Black Mages I so despise! I single-handedly brought chaos unto Gaia, but in the end, I'm nothing but a worthless doll! ... I won't let it happen. I won't... I won't let this world exist without me!

That means... we're Code Yellow. No, wait, Code Blue? If we were Orange, that would mean—

You dare to raise your sword against God himself? You shall burn in his light!

The Kings of Yore are on hand. Calling you forth... to oblivion. Yet when your father died... you were off playing with your friends! When your beloved died... you lay watching, powerless to stop it! You think ten years is a long time!? It is nothing to me! I have lived in darkness for ages!

Devin: You know, you're a-you're a resourceful guy, getting past those trained killers. I need someone like you, in my organization!
Trevor: The CEO position's gonna be vacant real soon, slick!
Devin: I got nothing against you, apart from the obvious hygiene issues. Michael caused me problems, so Michael had to go!
Trevor: You're looking at it rationally - there are people useful to you, and people who ain't, so people who ain't gotta go! Me? I'm not rational, I don't care if you're useful, or not. I feel like taking you out, Devo, so that's what I'm doing.
Devin: This is a serious offer! Work for me, you'll have everything you ever wanted!
Trevor: All I ever wanted is to see you drift in and out of consciousness as you're slowly disemboweled!
Devin: Yes! Yes! That's the kind of creativity I need on my team! Come on, come on! Let me out of here!
Trevor: Look, I got my own company - Trevor Phillips Industries!
Devin: Ohh, yeah, a-a-a-a fellow entrepreneur! Uh, let me buy a stake, uh, give you money to grow!
Trevor: I dunno if you heard, but I'm kinda gold rich right now, so you got precisely nothing to offer. Prepare for the end, my friend.
Devin: YOU CREEPY BUM!! You're fucked! FUCKED!
Trevor: My friends won't be happy if I empty a clip into the trunk!
Trevor: Find a happy place, ya zen cock!
Devin: Name your price...!
Trevor: This is why the people I put in my trunk are usually dead!

Put a price on that kid's head. I don't care how much. I want every bounty hunter, every mercenary, every damn snake in the western territories looking for that son of a bitch!

Becky: It's over.
The Trapper: I suppose it is. But I got what I wanted. And you cannot take that away from me. Everyone who hurt us is dead. Everyone at the orphanage. Everyone at the Third Precinct. Even the god damn judge is dead. Case dismissed.
Becky: Aw, you're losing your touch. Vanstone's alive.
The Trapper: Bullshit!
Becky: Give him a ring, but he might be avoiding cell phones for a while.
The Trapper: No! No, no!
Becky: Oh, yeah, I got him all over me.
The Trapper: No! No! {shoots himself in the head}

Ted Faro: Alpha Personnel... Sorry to alarm you, but... I need you to listen, okay? To what I'm about to say. This isn't easy. See, I've... uh, Please, stop trying to access the system, okay? See, what this is about... is... I said stop trying to access the goddamn system! What I'm trying to say is, I can't stop thinking about the ones who'll come after us. Those innocents. Those blameless men— and, and women. We're going to give them knowledge? Like it's a gift?!
Samina Ebadji: Ted. Ted, we've talked about this before. APOLLO has three thousand plus failsafe conditions—
Ted Faro: It's not a gift, it's a disease! They're the cure, and we're going to give them the disease? Our disease?! No. We can't. And it's not too late... if we're willing to sacrifice.
Samina Ebedji: Ted, it doesn't need to be like this.
Ted Faro: It already is, Samina. I did it three minutes ago. I've purged APOLLO. It's gone, all of it. Every copy.
Charles Ronson: A sacrifice? It's not a sacrifice, it's cultural obliteration, you crazy bastard— millennia of culture—
Ted Faro: I'm sorry. Really, I am. But sometimes, to protect innocents... innocents have to die.

Joseph Bertrand III: (crashing sounds) I am not happy! (more crashing and sound of a sword being swung) This isn't how it's supposed to be! You... you! You turned me into... a monster!
Dr. Sebastian Wolfe: We simply have no way to predict how a Conduit's power will manifest.
Joseph Bertrand III: I can't even control myself! What am I going to do? Why would God do this to me? You... you're gonna make this right Doctor. You hear me?
Dr. Sebastian Wolfe: The process is irreversible. I'm sorry, but I doubt there's-
Joseph Bertrand III: (sound of sword being drawn) If you can't help me, I have no more use for you.

I made them safe. Shielded them. But are they grateful? Do they appreciate my protection? No... They whine. Complain. Side with those criminals. If they prefer chaos, I'll give it to them. Metropolis and Gotham. I'll flatten them. Set an example. Then I'm finding the dimension these duplicates came from. They'll pay for interfering.

Orlock: Wait! Stahl, think about what you're doing. You're going to leave Helghan defenseless.
Jorhan Stahl: That's it? That's the best you've got? {Evil Laugh}
Orlock: Listen! If you win... do you really think Helghan's enemies are going to give you... time to rebuild? Look around you, Stahl. You're destroying our people!
Jorhan Stahl: Unless... What if I had no enemies left to fight? What if I used my weapons, and killed everyone on Earth? {Evil Laugh} Colonies would be terrified, they'd... fall into line. And I wouldn't need your help.
Orlock: {tries to shoot Stahl with a Lightning Gun, but he is out of the line of sight}
Jorhan Stahl: Like I said, so predictable! {kills Orlock with a Lightning Gun of his own}

President Haltmann, Kirby: Planet Robobot

We are the masters of a power driven to the far reaches of the universe, and we have but one desire! Can one such as you possibly fathom how dearly we have clung to this dream across the aeons? How could you! You couldn't! Never ever ever! We who once faced those who were in such fear of our power that they sealed us away and banished us to the edge of the galaxy! US! As if THAT loveliness wasn't enough, they tried to erase our very existence from history! RUDE! Only through our magic were we able to overcome their science and achieve great prosperity! We alone were responsible for stopping that repulsive nightmare of a galactic crisis, yet this is how you repay us! This won't stand! It won't be forgiven! It won't be forgotten! Never ever EVER! Those who called us mad, are you listening? You left us at the edge of the galaxy to be forgotten, then went along your merry way, probably living somewhere pretty and peaceful! But know this! Your future is a farce! You have none! We, masters of a matter most dark, vow to be restored, as foretold in the book of legend, which everyone thought was just a fairy tale! It WASN'T! We have already obtained the vessel that contains our Dark Lord, and he will soon awaken and shower us in compassion! Look! The vessel of our Dark Lord is filling up even as we speak! Now the time for his greatness to enter our world has come! Welcome to a new history! A new age! The age of awesome! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DARK LORD! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Grace us, Gloriously Dark Looooooord!

Elder Princess Shroob, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

I am Sovereign, and THIS STATION IS MINE!

The Shadow Broker: It's pointless to challenge me, Asari. I know your every secret, while you fumble in the dark.
Liara: Is that right? You're a Yahg, a pre-spaceflight species that was quarantined to their homeworld for massacring the Council's first contact teams. This base is older than your planet's discovery, so I'm guessing you killed the original Shadow Broker sixty years ago, then took his place. I'm guessing that you were taken from your homeworld by a trophy hunter who wanted a slave - (smirk) - or a pet. How am I doing?

Anderson: Listen to yourself! You're indoctrinated.
Illusive Man: No. No! The two of you, so self-righteous. Do you think power like this comes easy? There are sacrifices...
Shepard: You sacrificed too much.
Illusive Man: Shepard, I... I only wanted to protect humanity. The crucible can control them. I know it can. I just...
Shepard: It's not too late. Let us go. We'll do the rest.
Illusive Man: I... I can't do that, Commander.
Anderson: Of course you can't... they own you now.
Illusive Man: You... (takes Anderson's gun) you'd undo everything I've accomplished. I won't let that happen.
Shepard: Then you've failed humanity. / You're weak and you're selfish. Because of you, humanity will suffer.
Illusive Man: No! I... I saved humanity.
Shepard: No, you sacrificed us for your own selfish wants, your lust for control!
Illusive Man: No. No!
Shepard: You were supposed to protect us. And you failed.
Illusive Man: (draws gun) No! I am the savior of humanity! I am the pinnacle of our species!

You learn by accident. I am the genetic inheritor of a thousand species! No more mercy. Kill them all.

Preposterous... You dare rob the people's wishes!?
Yaldabaoth, after the Player Character summons Satanael, Persona 5

Transcendent One: You listen, but you do not *hear.* Know that you cannot die.
Nameless One: Actually, I can - now. I had a golem forge a weapon that can kill even me. All it needed was to be brought to a place cut off from the rest of the Planes so my immortality could not draw upon other lives. And here I am.
Transcendent One: You lie.
Nameless One: Do I? Look upon this blade — see its nature. If you are as all-knowing and all-powerful as you CLAIM, then you will know this is the weapon that can unmake me. And since we share a link, it is the blade that can unmake YOU.
Transcendent One: You would not dare such a thing.
Nameless One: I will use the blade on myself if you do not surrender to me. You and I will both be destroyed.
Transcendent One: It would be a fool's gesture. Your death would have no meaning.
Nameless One: As I see it, I have two choices — either I kill myself with this blade, or I let you kill me again and again, losing what few pieces of my mind I have left. I think I'd prefer the quick death — UNLESS you have a THIRD solution.
Transcendent One: There is no resolution to this matter. You will surrender the blade, then you will submit. You will leave this fortress, and you will leave without your memory. There is no *other* solution.
Nameless One: There is one other one. Re-unite with me. We will become one again, as we were meant to be.
Transcendent One: You know not what you do. If we are re-united, then it shall be an ending. There shall be no *future* for us. We shall go on to further torments.
Nameless One: It is better *that* happen than the multiverse continues to suffer because of us.
Transcendent One: If we become one, we shall suffer. There is too *much* of the nature of the First One in us for us to be saved. We shall be damned. You know not what you do.
Nameless One: No, I know very well what I do. And I think this is the only answer. Prepare yourself.
Transcendent One: Know that I have always *hated* you, Broken One. When we are one, I will continue to *hate* you. When your shell dies at last, know that I shall take *pleasure* in your death.
Nameless One: I can live with that — and so can the planes.
Transcendent One: Know that my hatred for you will *unmake* the planes. Prepare yourself. We shall be as one again — until your last moments of life.

That Pokémon [Giratina]... That shadowy Pokémon was captured/defeated?! Your doing so means that this irrational world will remain in existence! Does that make it impossible for me to create a new world? Even if I made new Red Chains, the new world can't be made! Why?! What compels you to protect the two worlds? Is spirit, a vague and incomplete thing, so important to you?!
[Cynthia tries to reason with him]
Silence! Enough of your blathering! That's how you justify spirit as something worthwhile?! That is merely humans hoping, deluding themselves that they are happy and safe! The emotions broiling inside me... Rage, hatred, frustration... These ugly emotions arise because of my own incomplete spirit!

What?! I created Team Plasma with my own hands. I'm absolutely perfect! I AM PERFECTION! I am the perfect ruler of a perfect new world!

How can this be? I'm the creator of Team Plasma! I'm perfect! I'm the absolute ruler who will change the world! And I've lost to some unknown Trainer not once, but TWICE?! I can't accept this! This isn't possible! I can't be bested by fools who can't even use Pokémon correctly!
[N tries to reason with Ghetsis]

Angie: Y-You vermin... This is incomprehensible! There's no way... there's no way that somebody could be as evil as that! To completely and utterly resist Arceus? Is there even such a being alive?!
Venam: Shut up! What the fuck did you do to Melia?!
Angie: Gyaurhh ahahh! Those words... they burn me! It's too hot in here... I must freeze my soul in the depths of Arceus' bitter, cold ruthless wrath...
Venam: You're too far gone! What is wrong with you?
Angie: Nothing is wrong! It is you! You've done this to me!
Venam:: (Player Name)... Tesla was right. She's too unstable! Let's just get out of here!
Angie: Never... I'll never let you leave... no... I'll never let you breathe again... I'll show you what it means to experience Arceus' cold truth. No one, not even Arceus itself, can stop me from spreading the truth. The cold and harsh reality!
Venam: Oh no... here she comes!
Angie: Frozen Field. Activate! (one brutal fight later...) No! I won't accept this! I refuse... to lose to you! You think this is over?! You think you've won?!
Venam: (Player Name) won, Angie! Hand over the badge, and let us leave!
Angie: As if I'd let trash like you run around this world any longer! Aragh! (fires a blast of ice at the protagonist, who barely dodges it) No! You won't escape my wrath! Aragghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! I'll kill... I'LL KILL ALL OF YOU...

Cera: Hahah... hahaha... Finally, I have tamed the beast. Just look here! It's trapped within this Poke´ball! The beast that caused two of Angie's final followers to perish... This beast... I hate it... I hate it... I hate it! You will pay for the passing of Esther and Deborah. Ohoho, you will pay in spades, but first...
Eldest: What happened to your fellow comrades is tragic, but you must calm down! Do not let anger run through your veins!
Cera: You two... (player name), don't you ever just give up?! You've been a constant thorn in my side since you've come to Terajuma Island. But no longer! I will accomplish one thing before I leave here... You may want to stand back... Witness the being that will finally bring your reign to an end!
(Cera opens her Pokéball, letting out a Groudon)
Eldest: My word... that has to be... Groudon?
Cera: Yes, it is the Legendary Pokémon, Groudon. The ancient beast that lives deep within this Garufan Chamber. I would have preferred an Ice-type, but this will have to do. Now that this Pokémon is on my side, there's no way I can fail. In the name of Lady Angie... Die!

If that were possible, all wars would have ended long ago! I can only see one future! One where selfish, foolish humans think about nothing other than themselves and steal more and more from one another... It's a tragic future! The original purpose of this device was to bring a Pokémon back to life. But the ancient king transformed it into this ultimate weapon... Hmm. When the Legendary Pokémon awakened, it took back much of its energy—its power—that had been sent to the ultimate weapon. There's not much power left... But there IS enough to use it once... (player character name), Sycamore's pupils...
(X version) Let us live forever... That's right! I shall grant you eternal life! I'll give you the pain of endlessly waiting for a beautiful world to finally be built!
(Y version) The ultimate weapon is a flower that bloomed to no avail... Just like me... But this ends here! I will show you what its remaining power can do!
Lysandre, Pokémon X and Y

Terrible? Me? How am I different from any Pokémon Trainer, like your little 'friend' there? What do you do with a Pokémon you can't use? You remove it from your party, as you please. Enough of this useless talk, Lillie! I will never forgive you for stealing Cosmog from me. Never! Back when you were small, you would listen to everything I said, without question. For a time, you were even adorable to me! But you changed. You've become ugly. Ever since you met this boy/girl (player name)... and learned to defy your own mother! (player name)! You hateful little Trainer! How dare you intrude on this world meant for Nihilego and me? It is not to be borne! And with Nihilego's power, I will show you how wrong you were to come here!
(fuses with Nihilego and attacks the player)
Lusamine, Pokémon Sun and Moon

So, you got through all of the special staff that I had ordered to stop you. I would expect nothing less of the Trainers handpicked by Champion Leon himself. But I am afraid it is now time for you to go home. Because... I will not allow anyone to disturb the great Chairman Rose! You shall be the first, (player name)! If I beat you to pieces, then the Champion will have no one to battle and will thus lose heart. In that state, he will listen to anything the chairman says!

This is your fault. It didn't have to be like this.
...I'm not kidding now. Turn back or I will kill you.
...I'm going to kill you! And all the cake is gone! ...You don't even care, do you?!
GLaDOS, Portal

What –? ARE YOU STILL ALIVE?! YOU ARE JOKING! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! Well — I'm still in control, AND I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO FIX THIS PLACE! Oh, you HAD to play bloody cat and mouse, didn't you?! While people were trying to work! Yes, well, now we're all gonna pay the price, BECAUSE WE'RE ALL GONNA BLOODY DIE! Oh, brilliant, yeah! Take one last look at your precious human moon, because it cannot help you now!

Colonel Ian Taggart: All of this, everything here. We've been preparing to fight the wrong war! We can't beat this. We need to pull out and deal with it at a distance!
General Peter Randall: Taggart. I put you in charge because I trust you to do what needs to be done: cut the heart out of the infection.
Colonel Ian Taggart: Sir! The position is in-tenable. These... things... they're beyond our abilities...
General Peter Randall: I don't want to hear one more excuse from you! You get your ass back into the field and get it done! Or don't come back.

Paul Serene: You took the CFR, Jack.
Jack Joyce: I took it back. I don't care how messed up you are, Paul. You're not taking it from me.
Paul Serene: I don't want it! I just want it gone. Forever.
Jack Joyce: Gone? What about your survival plan?
Paul Serene: Fuck the Lifeboat, Jack! We're just going to let the clock run out on this and be done with it.

Brian Irons: Shut up! You couldn't possibly understand what's happened! Those monsters from Umbrella have destroyed my beautiful town... How could they do that to me after everything I've done for them?! [...] Umbrella must be trying to cover its tracks. But if I have to go, I'm going to take you with me!

Derek C. Simmons: Are you here to avenge the president? Is that it? You fool. Had he disclosed the truth behind Raccoon City, the U.S. would have lost all its authority, and the global political order would have collapsed!
Helena Harper: So to avoid one possible disaster you create another? No matter how many people die!
Derek C. Simmons: He had to be stopped! He was leading my country, this world, into complete chaos! That woman... How dare she do this to me!

Get over yourself. Help me? I am the real Ada Wong! I don't need help from anyone! My plans aren't failing, they're thriving! And soon this frail shell of a society will collapse! After that, you know what will be left of this world? Nothing! Hell will rise and chaos will reign! And I, Ada Wong, will be queen of the new world!

Urrrrrrrrgh! Why would you not heed my words!? Humans live to be manipulated! I only needed you to act according to your nature as pawns!

My plan is sound even without you! I cannot tolerate another failure! I must be acknowledged by my Lord! Only then can I leave behind this angel's form and ascend to something more supreme! I will rend your flesh between my teeth and tear your soul asunder!

Purge, Space Channel 5 Part 2

Doc Ock: Congratulations. You shut down a number of redundant energy batteries, a minor inconvenience. As long as I have the artifact, my reactor is unstoppable, and the destruction I reap with it will be a testament to its magnificent design!
Spider-Man 2099: Really? Doesn't seem like much of a machine if it gets all its power from a magic rock.
Doc Ock: You creep! Do you have even the slightest idea of what complicated engineering is required for it to successfully derive energy from a mystical artifact? Do you?! DO YOU?!
Spider-Man 2099: ...Meh.
Doc Ock: I'LL KILL YOU!!!

Wait! Wait, the Tablet! It can still be mine! It could still—

All those people... I could have saved! You're the real villain here! I tried to warn you, Miguel. I really did. You've no one to blame but yourself. Maybe the most merciful thing to do is just wipe you out of existence entirely. Save us both some aggravation.
Peter Parker 2099, Spider-Man: Edge of Time

Doctor Octopus: The neural interface affected my mind. But I can fix it. We can fix it together... If you'll help me.
Spider-Man: I'll do everything I can. I'll make sure you get the best help-
Doctor Octopus: NO! If they put me away, they'll take my arms! I'll be trapped in this useless body! Please, Peter. That.. wasn't me. You said you'd never abandon me. You promised, remember? And, of course, you'll rest easy... knowing your secret is safe with me.
Spider-Man: You do what you think is best, Doc. It's all any of us can.
Doctor Octopus: Peter?

Bowser: You believed in your prophecy, and we believed in mopping the floor with you!
Tippi: Nothing is decided entirely by fate, you know... all things determine their destinies. Good-bye now, Dimentio. We'll add a footnote to the prophecy about your failure.
Dimentio: Urrrrrk... Unngghhhh... You think this is the end? This isn't finished... You can't... stop this now... you can't escape... I've saved one last surprise.... Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha... Ciao!

Asriel Dreemurr, Undertale

Why am I telling you all of this? Chara, I said it before. Even after all this time... You're still the only one that understands me. You won't give me any worthless pity! Creatures like us... Wouldn't hesitate to KILL each other if we got in each other's way. So that's... So... that's... Why... ... ha... Ha... ... what's this... feeling? Why am I... Shaking? ... Hey... Chara... No hard feelings about back then, right? ... H-Hey, what are you doing!? B... back off!! I... I've changed my mind about all this. This isn't a good idea anymore. Y-you should go back, Chara. This place is fine the way it is! ... S-s-stop making that creepy face! This isn't funny! You've got a SICK sense of humor!
See? I never betrayed you! It was all a trick, see? I was waiting to kill him for you! After all, it's me, your best friend! I'm helpful, I can be useful to you! I promise I won't get in your way! I can help... I can... I can... (now in Asriel's voice, with his face morphed into Asriel's) Please don't kill me.

"It can't end like this! Don't you see, the Kuei-Jin will kill us all! I-I can't lose- I will open the Sarcophagus; I'll build an empire; it won't end here!"

Daemon: Fear not, Apostle. The Basilica is reserved for those who may redeem themselves.
Eliphas: (clutching his head and floating in the air) No... no!

Favored? Chosen?! You will die on these shores with your dreams unfulfilled, the laughter of the thirsting Gods ringing in your ears! You're nothing without me! I led you to this place! I raised you up in the eyes of the gods! Now the elves are coming back! They know you are here! Without me, you will be destroyed! I have no regrets! And I expect no mercy...

You killed my dog! You killed my Greta! She was the light of my life! So caring! So forgiving! Not an evil bone in her body! And you took her from me! I gave her so much love!

What is left of your body I will feed to my other dogs!

Wilhelm "Deathshead" Strasse, Wolfenstein: The New Order

You are dead! I severed your head from your shoulders! I killed you!

I have seen worlds bathed in the Makers' flames. Their denizens fading without so much as a whimper. Entire planetary systems born and raised in the time that it takes your mortal hearts to beat once. Yet all throughout, my own heart, devoid of emotion... of empathy. I... have... felt... NOTHING! A million, million lives wasted. Had they all held within them your tenacity? Had they all loved life as you do?
