"I won't kill you because you're my precious specimen. The one I'll kill should be your girlfriend. There are many ways to kill her, but it would be boring if she died instantly. Let me see... Should I burn her to death? It seems interesting. I haven't witnessed something like the execution of the witches in a long time. The fire will also spread from the bottom, so you can see her desperation. Ah! There's also the scream!"
Sara Warren taunting the hero, Rokumichi, about how she will torture his Love Interest in the final battle, Amalgam of Distortion

Shira: [You] ought to be..."Tai-Tai", yeah? Heh, scored with that one, didn't I?
Magatsu Taito: Y-You scum! You didn't know [me] for sure?
Shira: Not until now. So, THAT was your little sweetie. Too skinny, but an okay piece of ass.
Magatsu: You're screwing with me. A bastard like you doesn't remember everyone he kills.
Shira: True enough, but I remember THAT one...that was the last bitch I ever screwed. So, yeah, I remember. I did her before I "did" her. Spare me the shock. She was a WHORE. Spreading her legs was her BUSINESS, yeah? For anybody who had the cash. Heh heh. Hey, kid, wanna hear a cool trick? Normally I ain't interested in screwing, see? Too boring. But lemme tell ya a secret. Get inside 'em, THEN start cutting them up! Get it? When ya cut bitches where it HURTS, first the muscles go limp, and then they all tighten up. THOSE muscles, too, kiddo. Heh heh heh. Think about it. YOU'RE a guy. There's nothing like it, man! Now, hey, I ain't no serial killer. I don't do it that way every time. Your girl? She was only number FIVE on the hit parade. THAT'S WHY I REMEMBER HER! GYAH HAH HAH!!!

"Farewell, Ichigo. From this moment on I no longer have any need for you or my children, the Sternritters. Just sit back and watch from there as I bring ruin to it all, Soul Society and the Human World. It's rather insulting, having these insignificant pests come after me in droves. With your bodies on the brink of exhaustion, I be amazed if you could take even one more step from there. But if you truly wish to come for my head, then by all means, please do. I shall leave this gate open for all of you, and if any of you do wish to pass through, then in light of your exceptional spirit and fortitude, I shall bestow upon you a most extravagant and luxurious death. For I shall find the future, that one moment where each of you feel the greatest amount of joy and happiness, and it is there, I shall slaughter you. So from this point forward, every time you indulge in your own happiness, you shall think of my words. And in that moment, when you do, you will remember my looming shadow, the terror of death I now promise you. For all eternity."
Yhwach to Ichigo Kurosaki before setting out to destroy existence, Bleach

"You gentlemen have reaped the extraordinary financial and political benefits of developing weapons with the sole purpose of annihilating the Earth. Your fortunes depend on your ability to concoct new ways of exterminating mankind, and, luckily, the powers that be have been behind you so far. However, there are those out there more interested in developing stronger international bonds in the hopes that it will precipitate peace. These people are the aberrations in a culture of war we in this room wish to propagate. So we must fuel the fires of war now, gentlemen!"
Skull, Cyborg 009

"Congratulations! Now, you'll all be like me! The despair of losing someone you love... You'll have despairful emotional systems that let you get drunk with ecstasy on that despair! You'll seek out despair without end, and become the ones who will stain this world, with despair, the Super High School-Level Despairs!"
Junko Enoshima after brainwashing Class 77-B and executing Chiaki Nanami, Danganronpa 3

Westcott: It is an honor to meet you, Princess. No... Yatogami Tohka, right? I am Isaac Westcott from D.E.M Industries. I’ll be in your care...
Tohka: You bastard...
Westcott: Ellen... I wonder why she hates me... What I did wrong in my introduction...?
Ellen: The methods you have used were not particularly pleasant if you wanted her approval.
Tohka: Were you the one behind all this?! What are you after?! What it is your aim?!
Westcott: My! Yes. That would actually be very simple. I want your powers as Spirit to turn the ways of the world upside down.... In order to topple the restraints of this world and unleash total chaos.
Tohka: What in the world?
Westcott: But you existence in this world is stable. I wonder what I have to do to make you despair?
Tohka: What you are talking about?
Westcott: To hate this world, to hate humans. Even the strongest Angel isn’t capable of filling the hole in your heart. You can only rely on external assistance beyond that of an Angel. How is it possible for you to enter that state? Looking through the AST records, there was a time when you were indeed near such a stage...What exactly happened then?
Tohka: You are insane...
Westcott: Any ideas, Ellen? *sigh* —I say, Ellen. Maybe it would be faster if we increased the physical torture on her? Let’s start off with electrocution. And then decrease the oxygen concentration in the room, and observe her reaction. Maybe we can also try changing the air pressure. If those fail, then let’s chip her nails away, and her fingers... ah, right, maybe we can grind out her teeth too. The pain felt by the nervous system will be unbearable by then. A Spirit’s body is much more resilient than a human... try feeding her poison. Ah, in that case, we should also give her tranquilizers. And then, yes, you're a virgin? How do you feel about your own chastity? The pain you will feel when we completely destroy and defile your dignity you have as a woman. In the long time you’ve spent in this world, have you had any friends or loved ones? If we were to kill a loved one in front of you, how would you feel? I would love to see one of them dying before your eyes to see the results.

"Heard that, Shido feel the Spirits taking their breath. Shido feel the incongruous feeling from Westcott since from the day he first met him. He feel that this feeling is expanding. Westcott's nature could not be described in just cruel or brutal but rather 'abnormal'. The truth of the vague fear he feel from Westcott is not a fear towards someone with power, but rather towards someone without compassion, kindness and without a shred of humanity."

"It was finally revealed. Westcott was not abnormal, not even insane. He was an extreme human being to the greatest extent. However, in terms of ethics he stood from a completely different from all humanity, with a viewpoint on life and death incompatible with other human beings. He was a human. But... What makes a human and a monster?"
The Author giving his final word about Isaac Westcott, Date A Live

"In the end, you're nothing more than a crazy serial killer. That's all you are. Nothing more, and nothing less."

"[Susamaru] was fooled into believing she was one of the Twelve Kizuki and forced to fight... and then Kibutsuji's curse killed her. There was no hope for her. After dying, even her bones disappeared without a trace. Is that the price for taking human life? Kibutsuji... he mistreats even those who admire him. He is undeniably... a true demon."
Tanjiro Kamado on Muzan Kibutsuji, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Chapter 19 "Together Forever"

"I am in a dream! Because... I will die by your own hand. I adored hearing the other demons' death cries. They thrilled me. I revel in the misery and suffering of others. I relive it in my dreams each night. Thank you for leaving me for last."
Enmu to Muzan Kibutsuji shortly before the latter recruits him, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Chapter 52 "Cruel and Heartless"

"Humans are my nourishment. For a demon, it is not a crime to eat living beings....However...killing other living beings is a sin! Isn't it? That's why I ate them without killing them!...Kah Kah Kah Kah! Don't you think they're happy to have been eaten by me?!!!"
Jinmen, Devilman

"I doubt I need an introduction, but just in case, I am the mighty Frieza and yes, all the horrible stories you've heard are true."

Piccolo: You've managed to power up even more than I'd imagined. How many thousands of innocent lives did you have to sacrifice, Cell?
Cell: Oh? Heh. A few. Though I'd say they should all feel honored. I've made them one with perfection.
Dragon Ball Z, "Run, Android 17! Piccolo's All-Or-Nothing Struggle!"

"I thought Dr. Gero only meant for me to defeat the Earth, but I know now I was designed for much more. Once I'm finished tearing this world into pieces, I'll just use Goku's Instant Transmission technique to move onto other planets. That is my destiny. I am the universe's end!"

"A little killing spree is in order!"
Babidi, Dragon Ball Z

"I'm not interested in fairness. I'm interested in the extinction of every living creature on this planet!"

"He told me that he has already destroyed a number of planets and their peoples. Although I've been fighting him for one year, there's hardly any humans remaining on the planet."

"The gods of millions of planets scattered across the universe, Lord of worlds in all four directions, Supreme Kais in all 12 universes, and the Gods of Destruction, they are all unnecessary! Every single intelligent life that isn't myself shall be terminated!"

Sidra: Do you really wish to betray your own universe? Even if it means its obliteration?
Frieza: Yes, and what of it?
Ro: How could you? Even the most despicable of villains has something which they hold dear and wish to protect! A loved one? Cherished memories? A precious place from one's childhood, even?
Frieza: Excuse me, my good man: I simply do not understand what it is that you are prattling about.

"Mistleteinn is no ordinary Dream Demon. I was once a part of a group pursuing Mistleteinn. She was indiscriminately slaughtering Dream Demons in the Dream World. On that day, my allies and I caught up with her. We didn't stand a chance. I don't know why I was left alive. Was it just a chance? Was it on whim? Mistleteinn was spawned from the deepest pits of hell.....The pits of hell...Humans dispose of the negative emotions they accumulate during a day in their daydreams. They move on to happier days. The pits of hell are where all that supposedly dissipated spite accumulates."
Lestion about his encounter with the vicious Dream Demon Mistleteinn Treesea, Dream Eater Merry

"I'm Uryuu Ryuunosuke. I'm currently unemployed, and I like killing people, pretty much. Especially kids and young women."
Ryuunosuke Uryuu introducing himself to his Servant, Caster, Fate/Zero

"I can't believe you fell for that trick! You should be ashamed! Did you really think I have the capacity to feel compassion or empathy for any living creature?!"
Nagi Mokuren as he slowly tries to suck the life out of his former partner, Flame of Recca

Barry the Chopper: She seems to like taking things apart so I thought I'd do the same to her! Watch closely and maybe you'll get to see what makes her tick!
Edward: You sick... why are you doing this?!
Barry: Why? Hmm... what a strange little question that is. I guess it's because I enjoy it. The first person I killed was my wife. She was nagging me about something and without meaning to, I chopped her to pieces. But when I saw how finely I could slice her, I wanted more. To reduce people to their most basic building blocks, and I wanted everyone to see...
Edward: That's stupid. Why would someone kill for such a ridiculous reason?
Barry: [looks at Edward insanely] Because they can! Given the slightest provocation, anyone can do it.
Edward: Stay back!
Barry the Chopper: Men have morals, but send them to war and they have no problem slaying each other in the most brutal fashions. Now why do you think that is?
Edward: I have no idea...
Barry the Chopper: [cuts Edward's shoulder slightly] 'Cause deep down inside we all want to kill, most just need the go-ahead from their society. Like the State Alchemists I saw in a village, slaughtering helpless people. Splat! Big fountains of blood!
Fullmetal Alchemist, "Philosopher's Stone"

"How could anyone say humans aren't weak? It's an inherent trait. How about we take advantage of their weakness? They certainly do make a good natural resource. Right? It's all they're good for."

"It's not just enough to destroy the world. I want to destroy all hopes, all dreams, and all miracles in the world. That is when true despair will come."
Joker, Glitter Force

"I'll kill you! I'll kill every last person who mocks me!! Grab your guns and follow me. First is the Vanderbilt girl with her evidence! Once that's over and my position is stable, I can start a war with the Information Alliance... I'll kill them aaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllllllll!"
Flag Eggnog, Heavy Object

"Gentlemen, all I ask for is war. War so grand as to make Hell itself tremble. Gentlemen, I ask you as fellow brothers in arms what is it that you really want? Do you wish for further war as I do? Do you wish for a merciless, bloody war? A war whose fury is built with iron and lightning and fire? Do you ask for war to sweep in like a tempest leaving not even ravens to scavenge from this Earth!?"
The Major, Hellsing

"You can do better than that. Now SCREAM! Not so tough anymore. I love the way you squirm beneath my boot heel.[...]God, you're such a weakling. And I was so sure you'd be a challenge. You're trash, like all those men I killed. Now, how to end this? Maybe I should just cut your head off. I've seen what's in there; this is a kindness! Now... die!"
Zorin Blitz as she mutilates Seras Victoria, Hellsing

"I will destroy everything. I was born to bring ruin to all that is."
Incognito, Hellsing

"I'll be honest, the mere thought of raping Asia as she calls out your name is absolutely delicious!"
Diodora Astaroth, High School Dx D

"You sacrificed your youth to hunt me down... And you're going to fail before you finish?! Talk about a lonely boring life. Meanwhile I, J.Geil will continue to have cute girls like your sister around me, and live a fun, happy life! Come to think of it, your sister was really good at sobbing!"
J. Geil mocking Polnareff about the fact that he caused his sister's death and rape, Jo Jos Bizarre Adventure Stardust Crusaders.

"You may have come this far, but you are still only human. You think like a human, who has so little time to live. About things leaving a bad taste in your mouth, or living your life with no regrets. That kind of reasoning is about as compelling as rat shit in a bathroom, and it will be your demise! I, DIO, have no such thoughts. Within my mind is but one simple thought. Just one! To be victorious and rule! That is all. That is all I need to feel satisfaction! How I do it... does not matter!"

"A medical accident two years ago caused the death of a patient, and he joined the gang after being dismissed from the hospital. After becoming a stand user, he began to show his true personality. Actually, Cioccolata's patient didn't die from an accident. That was simply a story to cover up the truth. He diagnosed perfectly healthy patients as being sick, and freely operated on them. Sometimes he even gave them too little anesthetic, making them regain consciousness in the middle of the operation. What was his reason for doing that? It was actually why he became a doctor... he didn't intend on helping people at all, but instead, wanted to witness people as they suffer and die!"
Diavolo on Cioccolata, Jo Jos Bizarre Adventure Vento Aureo

"I did it! Now, show me that expression! Show me despair! Show me, as clear as can be, the moment you lose all hope and die! Show me your despair as you fall to your death!"

"It would appear that I still have a bit of humanity left within me... I'll just have to rid myself of it!"
Ragyo Kiryuin, Kill la Kill

"I offer humankind a new world! I will render their high-tech weapons useless, and at the same time destroy their power plants and communication channels. I will take their light and pull out their claws. And before they are able to react and restore their old ways, I will send them my children. To France, Japan, China, Russia, Australia, the USA. In my world, the people will live in agony and fear. A wonderful vision, isn't it?"
Zeus, King of Thorn

"He has used up all his energy... Kirby is now completely helpless. I can crush him with little effort... But first, some fun! I shall enter his sleep and give him a nightmare, and you can join him. I think you'll find this dream a real scream!"

"Kill as much as you want! Have fun!"
Ridley to his comrades, Metroid

Ridley: Thanks to you, the Afloraltite exploded and I was also engulfed in flames! Can you imagine how I managed to survive? Shall I tell you what I had to feed my injured body, hmm?!
Samus Aran: Ah... uu...
Ridley: FLESH!!! [smiles] I somehow survived by consuming the bodies of your kind, tossed every which way. Foul, foul human flesh. [smacks Samus across the face]
Samus: Guah-help… Ugh... N-... no
Ridley: Heh, humans are always weak to the death of their own kind!! You don't know, maybe I even ate your "mama" so that my cells can live, hm? Is she here [points at his body] or here?! [grabs Samus] At least pay your respects!
Samus: N-... No...
Metroid, Chapter 8

"Remember real good you damn brat, reality is no fairy tale. Is this some convenient hero coming to the rescue? No, it's death!"

He hungers for fresh blood! For corpses! For tears and screams! Even women! Even children! Even babies! He eats people! He eats rock and earth! He'll even eat stars! He'll go until he's eaten everything — and even then he still hungers for more!
—On Dodo, Mixim

Apos: [After Apos kills his father by stabbing him and Rin tries to take the Time Fruit that he had but Apos stomps it] Isn't that tragic? It such a pity you couldn't receive his white blood.
Rin: You bastard! I'll kill you...You worthless son of a...
[Suddenly Apos stabs Rin]
Apos: It must be so painful realizing that you kill your former lover with your own hands and now you just saw the love of your life get killed. This hasn't been your day Rin. Do you want to know why I did all this? Of course you did...It's because I want to eat your memories.
Rin: What?...My memories?
Apos: Yes, the more painful the memories the sweeter it tastes.

-"I am a warmonger. I can't help it, I love everything about war. I'm the very worst kind of person, someone who lives and dies for humanity's most primitive impulse."
Ali Al-Saachez, Mobile Suit Gundam 00

Tenma: You can't just go around killing!
Johan: Why not?
Johan Leibert expressing his utter lack of empathy, Monster

Professor Clover: Are you shocked, phantom thieves?
Joker: What are you...
[Suddenly an explosion occurs and the two Phantom Thieves hear and see it]
Joker: Spade! Queen!
Professor Clover: Your allies are dead.
[Suddenly Joker goes angry]
Professor Clover: What a fine look on your face. Hate me! Despise me!
Shadow Joker: Even sacrificing your own underlings... why?!
Professor Clover: I have acquired everything. I have no need of an organization now. Envy me for my power to hold the world in my grip, phantom thieves! Hahahahaha.
Professor Clover confronting the Phantom Thiefs in their Final Battle, Mysterious Joker

"If you refuse I will kill all of your friends! I'll grind them up, squeeze out their blood and drown you in it!"

"Shuorororo...what good honest kids we have this time, as well! And the rest are undergoing their gigantism so mindfully! Of course, there are limitations to the drugs in this experiment, their bodies won't hold. Five years from now, not even one of them will be alive! Shurororo...we'll have to search for the next fresh bunch when that time comes! You learn from failed experiments and move forward, improving upon them, it’s an unavoidable sacrifice!"
Caesar Clown to Monet, One Piece

Who's going to be happy seeing you safe and sound after running around like a coward? If you can't cut down your foe, take a blow and bleed for yourself! Every human being... even the most pious saint, harbors a latent streak of barbarity that surfaces when he sees blood! Blood and death! This is entertainment!

"The seasons are distorted! The crops will be plundered and all living things shall die! The Earth's peril! This is the land of darkness I have wished for!

"I decided not to give Yusaka a painful, sad past to explain his misdeeds. I hope readers will perceive him as just being a truly horrible person, a devil in human clothes."
—The creator of Psyren on creating Aoi Yusaka

"Kill the humans, slice their meat, cut their bones, and use their blood and guts to hold the most extravagant party. Come now! And we will engrave into their corpses, our everlasting fantasy world!"
Gyokuro Shuzen, Rosario + Vampire

"Things of beauty, things of power, things of splendor, and things that epitomize all what's right in the world, those are the things I love see broken. All things are in there most brilliant when there being broken into tiny bits. It's obvious right? It started of small at first. Breaking this tiny thing and that, watching it's life fade, feeling it's body growing cold in my hand. And since these were small things, it was easy to hide from adults. But soon that wasn't enough. Thankfully I realized it was fine as long as no one found out. All I needed to do was scar someplace that couldn't be seen. That way nobody could say a world and the softest place that can't be seen, from the outside anyway, is the heart."

Yuzuki: Don't you dare hurt her!!!
Ulith: What, with brute force? As if I ever would do something so crude. And besides where is the fun in that, instead I just lead them to hate themselves with a passion that overwhelms them. So overwhelming as a matter of fact, those poor pathetic souls end their own lives.

"To me being a Selector is purely transcendent! In the real world, I have to worry about harming people, but in battle there is no need! There I'm allowed to scar and injure as much as I please! There's no authority, no law to stop me! I've broken so many innocent girls I lost count!!! I stomp their fondest wishes away! Deny them all hope! I crushed their very hearts!!! Still to this day I can hear their cries and it's wonderful!!!"

"All I wanted was to see the most fundamental characteristic of human existence. Savagery! Savagery in its purest, most unadulterated form! But that woman, blinded by love, ruined it. Unending, overwhelming despair... can the stubborn determination of mere humans cause a miracle like this? NO! I'll prove it! I'll prove there's no such thing as miracles! Those of you there with good hearts untainted by darkness! PERISH! Those of you unburdened by guilty consciences... DIE! Those of you who carry love for another in your hearts... PERISH! Tell me, what am I? Light or darkness? Your hope... or your despair?"
Aji Tae, Shin Angyo Onshi

"Go on, murder one another!! Let the town be painted in your blood! Let order turn to madness!!"
Shaula Gorgon, Soul Eater Not!

"Come on Roku. You really should've cast Iron Armor. Still, I guess in the end,[Looks at Benio] a loser will never be anymore than a loser, huh? [Grabs Benio's head] You know...You weren't really trying to kill me at first, were you? I'm sure I'm wrong, but...Did you perhaps think this was all some kind of misunderstanding? That maybe I was someone other than the brother you knew? You didn't believe that, did you!? [Proceeds to take Benio's hair tie that Yuto gives to her years ago] The fact that you're still wearing the hair tie I gave you proves how pathetic you are. [Proceeds to smashes the Hair tie]. You really don't deserve to live neither as a human being nor an exorcist. I don't even need to destroy you myself. Go on hating your own weakness as you die a meaningless death."
Yuuto Ijika taunting Benio as he tries to left her to death, Sousei no Onmyouji

Yuuto: Listen up, Roku. This is your last warning.
Yuuto: I said this yesterday, too...It's easier to achieve my goal with you at my side. If you do as I say—-
Rokuro: If I do that...You're saying you'll spare Ryogo and the others, right?
Yuuto: [Laughs] You're right, I did say that. Sorry though. The truth is, I was just lying to move things along.
[Rokuro looks surprised]
Yuuto: Now that I have the body and power of a Kegare, just like they do, I can steal the spell power of humans and become stronger by killing them. I'll have power surpassing that of any exorcist. And to have that, I need one thing...The spell power of everyone in the country!
Rokuro: You...They'll all die if you do that!
Yuuto: Maybe so. But when you think about what's to come, oddly, it makes the sacrifice at Hiinatsuki seems a bit insignificant, doesn't it?
Yuuto reveals that he has been lying all along regarding him wanting to spare Rokuro's loved ones, Sousei no Onmyouji

"This apprentice witch has sold her soul to the devil. To use dark magic, an abyss in your heart is required. An inferiority complex regarding one's deficiencies. When I first saw her, I knew she was the one. [...] When a person gets a hold of something that they felt they had always lacked, even if it's only for a moment, they ultimately become unable to ever let that one thing go. 'Little girl, you do want to be able to use your magic once again, don't you?' For the Warlock Realm to live on, proceed! Spread your absolute blackness of magical darkness so that I may be ruler of all!"
Grande describing how he's manipulated Eva into casting dark magic, Tweeny Witches, "Light Magic"

"Do you know how difficult it is keeping organs viable? And these aren't just any old organs. No, these possess the secret of unimaginable power. And why's that? Because they were all harvested from mutants just like you... Now then, it's harvest time, and I see we have a proper crop. I'll start with the girl's organs. After all, she was here first! But don't worry, I'll get to ALL of you."
Kick to the X-Men, Marvel Anime

"It's such a lovely day. Isn't it, Pharaoh? Too bad some of your friends can't enjoy it from all the way in the Shadow Realm."
Dark Marik, Yu-Gi-Oh!

John Dusk: "You killed everyone in the building?"
Arthur "The Polymath" Blankenship: "Oh yes. Men. Women. Children. Pets. The ones who fought and the ones who begged and the ones who tried to run or hide in their closets. I went door to door and slaughtered them all."
Absolution: Rubicon

"I can see inside your head, white boy. Did you think your little fight enhancements would let you kill me? You've never fought anything like me, boy. I am Regis. I have been raping and killing better humans than you for half a millennium[...] Try to hurt me. I've lost count of how many men's fingers and women's nails have shattered on my skin. Your mothers and sisters will bear my children. You cannot stop me. Burn Albion, burn Europe — it won't matter. I am Regis, warrior king of this entire filthy planet — and I will wipe myself with your skin when I'm done violating yours."
Regis Slzfi, The Authority

"Because I can. Because I am a wolf in a world of sheep. Because terror is the blood of life and its guiding principle. I have no politics to espouse through my terror, no ideals to force through. Terror is its own reward. That's why."
Kaizen Gamorra on being questioned on murdering hundreds of innocent people, The Authority

Look at the little ants scream. Screaming for their heroes to save them. They can scream all they want. There's no one left to save them. And the wretched few who remain can no more stand against the vengeful wraith of Gamorra than the bamboo can stand against a hurricane. See, my daughter, they are bent and broken! None shall shackle my anger. Gamorra has risen from the ashes of the wasted Earth. And we shall once again spread terror amongst the miserable insects that crawl on its carcass. And like divine retribution, we shall take what we want. The future belongs to Gamorra. Now go — strip the carcass clean and bring terror to the Earth. Make them scream my name!"
Kaizen Gamorra as his Children raze UnLondon, The Authority

"His eyes, unfathomably empty, devoid of all compassion... all humanity... No one has eyes like that... no one!"

"My name is Cletus Kasady and I kill people and I love it. I know nine million ways to kill a body and I love every single one of them. All dull day every day right up until I hit the hay I think of bodies. Bodies burst. Bodies slit right up the middle and shared across a hundred nice little gardens. And when I sleep I dream of ways to kill a body that ain't nobody thought of yet."
Cletus "Carnage" Kasady, Carnage: Mind Bomb

"I AM that man, eating human sandwiches at the bus stop... making Jeffrey Dahmer eyes at the nice young boys, John Wayne Gacy hands a'twitching... I AM those kids burning dogs and hobos in the dark alleyway. The woman cutting a hole in the tied-to-bed Mr. Goodman and inserting a vacuum cleaner tube in his stomach. The wife shoving broken glass down the husband's throat. I'm the American flag on fire, the Founding Fathers crucified for a chat show, lies, cursed lies, and government. I'm the end of the world as we know it and I feel like a DRINK."
Cletus "Carnage" Kasady, Carnage: Mind Bomb

"Close to three million inhabitants by my calculations. Stop me now and the casualties are certain. Or save these few and maybe I kill everyone in the meantime. What will it be? A word of advice: move fast. I certainly intend to."

Qua: "[Resa] was something... special. You're too late. She's already dead - just like all the others I've purchased over the years."
Dass Jennir: "Why? Why buy a child just to kill her?"
Qua: "Because I could. And to eat her, of course. She was delicious."
Dezono Qua on eating child slaves, Dark Times

"I know that the Big Tomato paid you a fortune to draft a treaty between our countries. I'll use his superstition and your greed to further my kingdom. Soooooon the smell of burning bug carcass will permeate the land in an olfactory concerto. This will be our paradise!"
Emperor Pago to the President of Dogtown, Gear

"My ancestors were destroyed for wanting to use the Forbidden Mechanism to ensure world domination. For ages since, our people have enjoyed a rich heritage of honorable combat. But I say, 'Screw Heritage!'"

Oblivion, Icon

Raquel: I-I'm here, Oblivion. Listen to me. Stop what you're doing for a minute. Maybe we can talk over whatever's-
Oblivion: There's really nothing to discuss, child. You and your kind wish to live. I desire to see you all slaughtered. Let's agree to disagree.

Batman: You took his wife. His unborn child. And his city from him. Why?
Joker: Why? You need a reason? It’s probably the same reason I beat that puppy to death with a kitten last week. When the howling and meowing stops, and all you’re left with is a mess of fur and blood and brains - well, you can’t beat that warm glowing feeling inside.

"You know you are involved with a sick man who will see you die? He will stand over your body with your blood on his hands and I promise you he will laugh... Not because your life means nothing to him, but because death, for him, is the punch line."
Harvey Dent describing The Joker, Joker.

"New Genesis is a stinking cosmic sewer! I have fouled Paradise beyond repair and broken in the mire the shining cities of the Gods! I have won! Is this vanity? Then I will remake the entire universe in the image of my soul, Desaad. And when at last I turn to look upon the eternal desolation I have wrought... I will see Darkseid, as in a mirror... and know what fear is."
"You see, doctor... I don't feel guilt... or compassion. I have no pity. I was born without those things. I was born without love in my heart. Just as Job loved the lord no matter what suffering was inflicted upon him... I hate. I am filled with a hatred for all things... A desire to inflict pain. A desire to kill. How can God call Himself just... How can He call Himself merciful when he creates a man like me? A man beyond redemption. I did not sell my soul to the Devil. It belonged to him from the moment I began growing in my mother's womb."
"Richard Pickman", Killing Pickman

"A pile a stones can't stop Baron Sixte Averroes. By nightfall, there won't be any virgins left in Gold-Azure... and a flood of blood will colour the loch red."
Baron Sixte Averroes, Lanfeust of Troy: The Gold-Azure Castle

"Quite. Our Mr. Griffin seems utterly incapable of feeling remorse. I rather think our so-called "alienists" could learn much about criminal insanity by talking to him."

"My time has come, my little mockery... Do you not feel it? The destiny which has escaped me for so long is to be met! Darkness shall cover the universe and reduce all within to my slaves!"

"He-Man! Welcome foolish brute...welcome to the doom of Eternia and the universe in which it exists. I have traveled the lengths of the multiverse, wreaking havoc, bringing terror wherever the shadow of Skeletor's boot fell across the cowering populace. Billions of souls, countless worlds, universes beyond counting all fell to my might. Oh but never have I held such raw power in my fists. With this, I could cause the very cosmos itself to be gone, with a thought. So come He-Man and greet the death of everything! Ha, Ha, ha!"
Skeletor, Masters of the Universe (1982 DC Comics miniseries)

Acroyear: Will you never relent, monster? Must world after world suffer your inhuman evil?
Baron Karza: Monster, Acroyear? Inhuman? I am neither, fool! The time travelers taught me my limitations! I am merely a, in my own humble way, I have accepted only being able to inflict such small suffering as I can! Yes, sad isn't it?
Bug: Some conqueror you're gonna be! What're ya gonna rule over? Ashes??
Karza: If worlds won't serve me, yes!
Huntarr: But what of all the people inhabiting those worlds? What of the innocent millions?!
Karza: Mere fodder for my Body Banks, Huntarr! Raw materials on which to experiment to create FREAKS LIKE YOU!

Little D: You're mad, Karza!
Elder: What can you hope to gain by destroying a planet?
Baron Karza: Your submission, Elder! The voluntary surrender of the worlds of the Microverse lest they be subjected to a similar fate!
Kalikak Queen: The Queen of Kalikak calls you a MONSTER, Karza!
Karza: Monster? No, I am not a monster. Not even a GOD, though I sought to be the ultimate overlord of evil! But...the enigmatic time travelers have taught me that I am just a man, who can only transcend his humanity by committing one unspeakably INHUMAN ACT after another!

Slug: Scum! It was you who slew my parents, horribly destroyed the man I loved, stole my youth!
Baron Karza: An endless list of atrocities, eh, my lady Slug? Yes! I am an artist of atrocities—a master of disaster! And you—while you may be the real Lady Slug in spirit—are now only a pale, pathetically frail old woman, so susceptible to nervous shock!
Duchess Belladonna: (After Karza kills Slug) Y-you killed her! You struck her down in cold blood! You MONSTER! You evil, inhuman MURDERER.
Karza: Such strong words, Duchess! I do not understand!...Now you'll have no rival for your Baron's love!
Belladona: L-love a heinous horror like you?! I-I'd rather die!
Karza: I am always willing to oblige a lady, Duchess! (Snaps Belladonna's neck)

"Before all was, I was. Before time was, I waited. I fed on the screaming souls of the universes. I drank the spoiled milk of dead stars. I am the emptiness outside all understanding. I am Shuma-Gorath."
Shuma-Gorath, Mighty Avengers

"If ever a man was aptly named, it was Tomas de Torquemada...called after the infamous Spanish inquisitor, his name was like some ghastly joke...It comes from 'Torque'—the Latin word for torture...and 'Quemada', which means 'the burning'."

"I think I'll dismember the world and then I'll dance in the wreckage."
Doctor Destiny/John Dee, The Sandman

"Most men would question the decency of a decision like [mass-murdering your own people]. Some would become paralyzed with despair and regret. Rest assured, I am not most men."
Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker, Secret Warriors

"I believe most people are basically good. Sure, everyone falters from time to time, but we all try to balance the scales in the end. Other people, like Detective Hilt here, are beyond redemption. He put on a mask, called himself the Lawgiver, and then he killed cops. He killed civilians. He tried to kill the people I care about."
Richard Wentworth on Joe Hilt, The Spider

"But isn't that what you want to hear, Doctor? That I was a poor, abused child? That my mother beat me? My father molested me? That I was tortured and hung by my ankles above a pit of broken glass? Well, maybe that's all true. Or maybe... I'm just the inevitable aberration. The soul that's born so black, so twisted, so filled with unreasoning hatred... that there's no explanation. You can't make me sane, Doctor. You can't hope to redeem me. All you can do is kill me. Because, if you don't—I'll break out of here. You have my word on that. And the blood—the glorious blood—will flow like wine!"

"I am something you have never seen before. I am Solus. I herald the death of you all. Boys, feast! Kill as many as you can."
Solus, Spider-Verse

Ten percent of the Mon Calamari population are to be executed. Effective immediately. We will start with the Mon Calamari at hand. All surviving Mon Calamari in the galaxy will be interred in work camps! Any who seek to evade us will be hunted down and killed! The Mon Calamari will have time to suffer and reflect on their crimes until all are extinct. I will purge the galaxy of their culture and history. Such will be the fate of all who defy the Sith!
Darth Krayt, Star Wars: Legacy

"The Galaxy must experience the pain of death and rapture of rebirth as I have. I will bring chaos. It is time for war."
Darth Krayt, Star Wars: Legacy

"Look at you. All brittle bones and ligaments and red, red ventricles, so sticky-soft and bendable... I wonder what noise you'll make when I pop your seams?"
Overlord to the human Verity, The Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers

I am not the hero in my own story. I am the bad guy. I have no end in mind that justifies my means. There are no skeletons in my closet, no abusive childhood or inciting misery that might expiate my vile behavior. Nor am I insane. I know the difference between good and evil. And I am fully capable of empathizing with the pain, emotional or physical, of others. No sociopath, I. Rather, I simply prefer bad over good. Wrong over right. Dirty over clean. Sick over healthy. Untrue over true.
Contagion, Wolverine: The Best There Is

"Are you still feeling angry? Feel free to take it out on her. Even if you beat her too hard, she can be fixed easily, and I’ll still be able to go with my plans. Come on, take some pleasure in punishing the genie for not being subservient to your whims. She’s basically nothing more than an object right now."
Vicegerent Zathir, Ask Genie Twilight

Talzo: Listen to yourself. You’re out of control, Zykan. I won’t let you get away with this kind of behaviour.
Zykan: Oh, is that so? Do not forget who you speak to Talzo [Proceeds to beat Talzo].
Zykan: I am greater than you, boy. Perhaps it’s time that I took your place. Your sympathy holds your back, whereras I have no such weakness.

"We all knew who was responsible. [He] poisoned his own sister to get to your father. And you and Kyrin had to watch your mother die."
Village Elder on The Skull Kid, The Legend of Zelda: The Sage of Darkness

"If I could get rid of you three—the most complex characters in existence—then I can have this universe all to myself. You-Know-Who will never be able to find me. I will have created a whole new level of existence for me to reside in and rule over for all eternity. The chaos I shall cause is incalculable… I can create life and exact death over thousands of new characters. I will be the most powerful being in a whole new universe!"

"So that’s where I am now. Left in pain as I cry myself to sleep. It isn’t the first time and it likely won’t be the last. Brigit is no mother. She’s a monster. A demon wrapped in an angel’s skin. She ruined my life. And still continues to do so. I despise Brigit for everything she has done to me. I hate her with a passion.

"I fucking hate my mom."
Cinder Fall on her mother Brigit Stark, My Name Is Cinder

Mewtwo: Why'd I choose you? Because you're gullible. Stupid. A glorified cockfighter so willing to believe you were destined for greatness. And you missed your friend so badly, you'd do anything to make it up to him.
Ruby: So what? Now you're going to kill me?
Mewtwo: Oh no, I really am grateful for all you've done for me, Ruby. I just want to leave this cave and enjoy my freedom. And I guess I might as well kill all humans and conquer the world while I'm out there. But don't worry... I'll save you for last.
Mewtwo revealing himself to Ruby, Nuzlocke Comics

"I just want to have a little fun. Maybe jump to a village in world A, kill a few people, upset the order, move on to world B, start some fires and send everyone in a terror, then on to world C where I manipulate a dictator or a crime lord for a while... and repeat ad infinitum until I die. Really, why would I ever want to conquer or rule? Ruling is such a messy business. With this, I can have as much fun as I like, doing whatever I like, wherever I like, and the sky's the limit."

"You seem so surprised. Surely you didn't truly believe that I had any intention of remaining here at this filthy school, being denied my magic and crown, being forced to remain by her side as an equal? You filthy worms, why would I ever choose family over power?"
Falla Cii, in response to Akua asking if all of her attempts at redemption were an act, Rosario Vampire: Brightest Darkness

"You kidnap and brainwash our friend, you set Kuyou down upon us, you used us like toys... all so you can destroy the world with Alucard? All I see before me is a misguided fool that is going to be cast down into Hell."
Moka Akashiya to Hokuto Kaneshiro, Rosario Vampire: Brightest Darkness

"As Taiyang stared, he could not even recognize his own daughter. She was different. The glimmer in her silver eyes was haunting and twisted. The look on her face was not one any human should ever have: one of pure, unrestrained... evil."
—A description of Ruby Rose, RWBY: Dark, Prequel 1 "Red Dawn"

"I am Vichama! God of Death, Lord of Hell! I strode between the stars before mortals had the wit to name them, and brought death to millions of- oh, gosh, I think we've had quite enough build-up. Let's get on with the killing, shall we?"

"I have waited eight millennia for this moment. Souls of the lost, souls of the cursed, souls of the damned, flock to me! This planet will be my temple. From here, I shall stride forth across the universe and bring the gift of death!"

"...I just thought of something interesting. Go to that star and get rid of that thing. And while you're at it, hunt down every last living thing on that planet. There's nothing like watching a pack of fools flounder about in a state of crisis. It will be a perfect way to stave off my boredom. Using your abilities, it will be but a simple matter. And then that star will be mine. You can do it, yes?"

"What's the matter, Batman? No witty comeback? No threat? Then I'll provide the narration... I'll begin with how I peeled back the layers of the boy's mind. Oh, he bravely tried to fight it at first. You would've been proud to see him so strong. But all too soon, the serums and the shocks took their toll, and the dear lad began to share such secrets with me. Secrets that are mine alone to know... Bruce. It's true, Batsy! I know everything. And kinda like the kid who peeks at his Christmas presents, I must admit, it's sadly anti-climactic. Behind all the sturm and bat-o-rangs, you're just a little boy in a playsuit, crying for mommy and daddy! It'd be funny if it weren't so pathetic. Oh, what the heck, I'll laugh anyway. HA HA HA HA HA HAA!"

I want people to get me. That's why I'm going to kill everyone in this room.

Joker: [strikes Robin with crowbar] What hurts more? A? Or B? Forehand? Or backhand?
* puts his ear to Robin's face*
Joker: A little louder, lamb chop. I think you may have a collapsed lung. That always impedes the oratory.
* Robin spits in his face*
Joker: Now, that was rude. The first boy blunder had some manners. I suppose I'm going to have to teach you a lesson so you can better follow in his footsteps. Nah, I'm just gonna keep beating you with this crowbar.

"... Ignoring what [the Joker has] done in the past. Blindly, stupidly disregarding the entire graveyards he's filled, the thousands who have suffered, the friends he's crippled. You know, I thought... I thought I'd be the last person you'd ever let him hurt. If it had been you that he beat to a bloody pulp, if he had taken you from this world, I would've done nothing but search the planet for this pathetic pile of evil, death-worshiping garbage and then send him off to hell!"

Sarabi: It's over. There is nothing left. We have only one choice. We must leave Pride Rock.
Scar: We're not going anywhere!
Sarabi: Then you have sentenced us to death!
Scar: Then so be it!
Sarabi You can't do that!
Scar: I'm the king, I can do whatever I want!

Six days flat. Then there's this old guy in Philly. I killed him in 72 hours. Yeah, I'm getting better as I go along, baby, but the problem is I never set a record! Until my man, Frank, that is.

Machine/George Higgins: You know the best part of killing someone? The look on their face. It's that look. Not when they're threatened. Not when you hurt them. Not even when they see the knife. It's when they feel the knife go in. That's it. It's surprise. They just can't believe it's really happening to them. She had that look, the girl, when she knew it wasn't just porno.
Tom Welles: (holding Machine at gunpoint) Take off the mask!
Higgins: (removes his mask) What'd you expect, a monster? M-my name's George. You probably knew that already. Can't get your mind around it, huh? I don't have any answers to give. Nothing I can say is gonna make you sleep easier at night. I wasn't beaten. I wasn't molested. Mommy didn't abuse me. Daddy never raped me. I'm only what I am. And that's all there is TO IT! (throws his knife at Welles) There's no mystery. The things I do, I do them because I like them. BECAUSE I WANT TO!

"You think I may like to murder just for the entertainment value? I have to admit, it's a lot of fun once in a while. My first wife and my partner had to die because of financial interests.

"Don't you understand? I've killed dozens of Slayers. Your life is not a blink of my eye, not a single breath. I have lived in the shadows, in the pulsing filth behind men's eyes. I have conversed with the worms that fed on my corpse and I have bathed in the blood of emperors."

Small incisions with a fine instrument. That way, I can make it last for hours. And you will not believe how long a minute can feel… I won't kill you fast. No matter how much you're gonna want me to."
Peter Foley, Copycat

"Oh, I forgot. The cops never did find your daughter’s killer, did they?... Do you want to know how I know this? Because, I’m the one who killed your daughter... Oh, yes, yes, oh she was so much fun, she was one of my favorites... But in the end, I just had to give her the sweet, wet kiss goodbye."

"First there was the collapse of civilization: anarchy, genocide, starvation. Then when it seemed things couldn't get any worse, we got the plague.

Restore it? Why? I like the death! I like the misery! I LIKE THIS WORLD!"

Little secret, Wade: This workshop doesn't make superheroes, we make super-slaves. We're gonna fit you with a control collar and auction you off to the highest bidder.

"You are accused of using your position as Minister of the Interior to plot against the Soviet Union…with the goal of forwarding the interests of foreign powers.

"I like plays. The good ones. Shakespeare... I like Titus Andronicus the best—it's sweet. Incidentally, did you know that you are talking to an artist? I sometimes do special things to my victims: things that are creative. Of course, it takes knowledge, pride in your work. For example, a decapitated head can continue to see for approximately twenty seconds. So when I have one that's gawking, I always hold it up so that it can see its body. It's a little extra I throw in for no added charge. I must admit it makes me chuckle every time. Life is fun. It's a wonderful life, in fact, for some. It's too bad about poor Father Dyer. I killed him, you know. An interesting problem, but finally, it worked! First, a bit of the old succinylcholine to permit one to work without, ah, annoying distractions. Then, a three foot catheter threaded directly into the inferior vena cava — or, superior vena cava. It's a matter of taste, I think, don't you? Then the tube moves through the vein, under the crease of the arm, into the vein that leads directly into the heart, and then, you just hold up the legs, and you squeeze the blood manually into the tube from the arms and the legs. There's a little shaking and pounding at the end for the dregs - it isn't perfect. There's a little blood left, I'm afraid. But, regardless, the overall effect is astonishing! And isn't that really what counts in the end? Yes, of course, Good Show Biz, Lieutenant, the EFFECT! And then, off comes the head without spilling one single drop of blood. Now I call that SHOWMANSHIP, Lieutenant!"
The Gemini Killer to Lieutenant Detective Bill Kinderman, The Exorcist III

"Well, there I was so awfully dead in that electric chair. I didn't like it. Would you? It's upsetting. There was still so much killing to do, and there I was, in the void, without a body. But then along came, well, my friend. You know. One of them. Those others over there. The cruel ones...the Master. He thought my work should continue. But in this body. This body in particular, in fact. Let's call it revenge. A certain matter of an exorcism, I think, in which your friend Father Karras expelled certain parties from the body of a child. Certain parties were not pleased, to say the least. The very least. And so, my friend, the Master, he devised this petty scheme as a way of getting back, of creating a stumbling block, a scandal, a horror to the eyes of all men seeking faith, using the body of this saintly priest as an instrument of, well, you know my work. But the main thing is the torment of your friend Father Karras AS HE WATCHES WHILE I RIP AND CUT AND MUTILATE THE INNOCENT, HIS FRIENDS, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN, ON AND ON! HE'S INSIDE WITH US! HE'LL NEVER GET AWAY! HIS PAIN WON'T END!... Oh... Gracious me. Was I raving? Please forgive me. I'm mad."

"I'm gonna keep a contract out on you and your girlfriend for as long as it takes. And this won't be over until the both of you are dead. Now, that can happen anywhere. Let me see. How about Monticello, Indiana? At the lake house, where your girl's family has reunions. I think the next one's in July. I can't wait to go to that one. Hey, when are the two of you getting married? I bet that's gonna be a special day, huh? You gonna invite all your family and friends... Craig, Adam, Trey, Carlos... and how about a couple of my guys? Or maybe I'll just wait .You know, maybe I'll just wait for years until you and your girl, you got some kids of your own. Then my men... They'll come and kill them while you watch."
David Hagan to Jeremy Coleman, Fire with Fire

"If [the Monk] speaks of compassion for this devil, he should go back to his temple and pray!... Her father was a government official who opposed the Warlord. And so, to set an example, the Warlord dispatched his troops into the night. Legion upon legion poured out of the Five Elements Mountain into the lowlands of the Middle Kingdom. Screams of innocent people hung in the night air. When it was over, charred ruins were all that remained; that, and a lonely child hidden in the well by her mother, ruthlessly murdered by an arrow from the Warlord's bow. "
Sparrow recounting her story of The Jade Warlord razing her village, The Forbidden Kingdom

"My children. From the very beginning, it was the children who gave me my power. The Springwood Slasher, that's what they called me. My reign of terror was legendary. Dozens of children would fall by my blades. Then the parents of Springwood came for me. Taking justice into their own hands. When I was alive, I might have been a little naughty, but after they killed me, I became something much, much worse. The stuff nightmares are made of. The children still feared me and their fear gave me the power to invade their dreams. And that's when the fun REALLY began. Until they figured out a way to forget about me. To erase me completely. Being dead wasn't a problem, but being forgotten, now that's a BITCH. I can't come back if nobody remembers me. I can't come back if nobody's afraid. I had to search the bowels of Hell, but I found someone, someone who'll make 'em remember. He may get the blood, but I'll get the glory, and that fear is my ticket home."
Freddy Krueger, Freddy vs. Jason

Jason: Sarris is the bad guy, right?
Laliari: Oh, yes, sir. He's a very bad man indeed. He has tortured our scientists, put us to work in the gallium arsenide mines, captured our females for his own demented purposes…

Thermian Captain: I have told you all I know... if you have any mercy within you, please, let me die.
Sarris: When I grow weary of the noises you make, you shall die!

Yes, first, they stay about this far away. Just because you know — you never know. Now I get that kind of reaction. And as Marnie, they did too. Because they worried I was going to judge or yell at them. So I'm kind of used to that. But, yeah, they would say, like, "She was hypnotized, right?" And I'm like "No. She's just evil. How hard is that to accept? She's bad." We gave you so many ways to know that she's' bad. She has photos of people whose lives she ended behind her. That's so crazy. And they're still like "But maybe she's also a victim?" I'm like "No! No!"

"I tried so hard to find the form that best suited you, and this is the thanks I get? You really need to GROW UP! I wanted to do this together, but I suppose you'll have to learn by spending the next thousand years as a BATTERY!"
Ego, to his son Peter Quill (after telling Peter how he killed the latter's mother), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

"Myers was meant to be evil personified. He wasn't a killer who had been wronged, he wasn't seeking vengeance or profit, he wasn't trying to prove a Saw-like point or haunting the place where he'd been abandoned by negligent teens. He was literally just a big, psychotic prick who defied sense."
Cracked on Michael Myers of the Halloween franchise (link)

"I always knew he'd come back. In this town, Michael Myers is a myth. He's the Boogeyman. A ghost story to scare kids. But this Boogeyman is real. An evil like his never stops, it just grows older. Darker. More determined. Forty years ago, he came to my home to kill. He killed my friends, and now he's back to finish what he started, with me. The one person who's ready to stop him."
Laurie Strode, about Michael Myers, Halloween (2018)

"After the dragon took the Lonely Mountain, King Thror tried to reclaim the ancient dwarf kingdom of Moria... but our enemy had got there first. Moria had been taken by legions of Orcs, led by the most vile of all their race, Azog the Defiler. The giant Gundabad Orc had sworn to wipe out the line of Durin. He began by beheading the king."
Balin recalling the horrors of Azog the Defiler, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Georges Rutaganda: Their money is no good for them. Soon all the Tutsis will be dead.
Paul Rusesabagina: You cannot seriously think that you can kill them all.
Georges Rutaganda: And why not? Why not? We are halfway there already.

"No, I'll take him. I'll take all of you! And I'll feast on your flesh as I feed on your fear. Or you just leave us be. I'll take him - only him. Then I will have my long rest, and you will all live to grow and thrive and lead happy lives. Until old age takes you back to the weeds."
IT/Pennywise the Dancing Clown when holding Bill as a hostage, It (2017)

As you can see, I am about to inaugurate a little war. In a matter of hours after America and Russia have annihilated each other. We shall see a new power dominating the world.

James Bond: Allergy vaccines? Bacteria. Bacteriological warfare.
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: With a difference. Our big breakthrough since last summer has been the confection of a certain... Virus Omega.
James Bond: Infertility.
Ernst Stavro Blofeld: TOTAL infertility! In plants and animals. Not just disease in a few herds, Mr. Bond. Or the loss of a single crop. But the destruction of a whole strain. Forever! Throughout an entire continent. If my demands are not met, I shall proceed with the systematic extinction of whole species of cereals and livestock all over the world!

"The satellite is at present over... Kansas. Well, if we destroy Kansas the world may not hear about it for years. Perhaps New York, with all that smut and traffic... might give them a chance for a fresh start. Washington, DC. Perfect. Since we have not heard from them, they will hear from us."

"No doubt you have realized the splendor of my conception. First, a necklace of death about the Earth. 50 globes, each releasing its nerve gas over a designated area, each capable of killing 100 million people. And the human race as you know it will cease to exist. Then a rebirth, a new world."
Hugo Drax to James Bond, James Bond, Moonraker

"I was not born to teach people the error of their ways. I was born to murder the world!"

"I will show the world the terrors that is waiting for it beyond the grave. And I will make it despair."

"Once upon a time, there was a little boy. You wouldn't describe him... as a particularly special little boy. He was neither tall nor handsome, charismatic or amusing. In fact, he appeared to be exceedingly dull. Because of this boy's apparent shortcomings, he was bullied mercilessly and relentlessly by the other children. Year merged with miserable year as life continued to be a living hell. But what the other boys didn't understand about their victim was that he didn't see them as enemies. He saw them as instruments of learning. A priceless lesson was gleaned from his tormentors. Man has only two masters in this world. And their names are Pain and Fear. The boy found he had quite a talent for eliciting these feelings in others. So on the principle of playing to your strengths, he decided to make their cultivation his life's work. Fortunately for this boy history gave him an unprecedented opportunity. A world war. The canvas, Mr. Solo on which he would produce his greatest work. You will go here, Mr. Solo. A whole page just for you. And not in black and white, like the others. No. Kodachrome. The colors are so real, you can almost taste them... There are two kinds of torture, Mr. Solo. One is for the extraction of information. The other is for its own sake. I must admit this does get frustrating. But fortunately, I'm in an old-fashioned mood. I think we'll start... with the pliers."

"Some here want your money for all the evil your people have done. I want your pain!"

"You have a wife, girlfriend? Because you know what I'm gonna do next? I'm gonna find her, whoever she is, I'm gonna find her and I'm gonna hurt her. I'm gonna make her bleed, and cry, and call out your name, and you're not going to be able to do shit, you know why? 'Cause you're gonna be this close to dead. And then I'm gonna kill you right in front of her."
Owen Davian (while captive) to Ethan Hunt, Mission: Impossible III

August Walker: Is it true [Solomon] Lane gassed a village of 2000 people?
Ethan Hunt: Yes.
Walker: Is it true he brought down an entire passenger plane just to kill one man?
Ethan: Yes.
Walker: Is it true that he—
Ethan: Hey, Walker? Whatever you heard, if it makes your skin crawl, it's probably true.

"Today you awake to a world in the grip of chaos and corruption. I will restore order. I will retake what is mine. I will crush any idea of freedom. I will slaughter without mercy. I will conquer without compassion."

"Come down to the cellar. You wanna know who Fred Krueger was? He was a filthy child murderer who killed at least 20 kids in the neighborhood... kids we all knew."

Valak preparing to kill Frenchie, The Nun

"Oh my Father, Lord of Silence, Supreme God of Desolation, though mankind reviles yet aches to embrace, strengthen my purpose to save the world from a second ordeal of Jesus Christ and his grubby mundane creed. Show man instead the raptures of Thy kingdom. Infuse in him the grandeur of melancholy, the divinity of loneliness, the purity of evil, the paradise of pain."

Morton: Tell me, was it necessary that you kill all of them? I only told you to scare them.
Frank: People scare better when they're dying.

Christine Day: Are you going to kill me now too?
Erik Destler: Everyone dies... I only choose the time and place for a few.
Christine Day: When do you choose for me?
Erik Destler: This is either a wedding march or a funeral mass. You decide which.

"Bejski told me the other day, somebody escaped from a work detail outside the wire. Goeth lined up everybody from the missing man's barracks. He shot the man to the left of Bejski, the man to the right of him. He walked down the line shooting every other man with a pistol. Twenty-five."
Itzahk Stern describing Amon Goeth murdering Jewish prisoners, Schindler's List

Ghostface/Roman: I searched for my mother, an actress named Rina Reynolds... searched for her my whole life. I finally tracked her down, knocked on her door, thinking she would welcome me with open arms... but she had a new life, a new name: Maureen Prescott! You were the only child she claimed. Sid, she shut me out in the cold forever! Her own son. (takes off the mask, revealing himself) Roman Bridger, director... (uses the voice changer) and brother. She slammed the door in my face, Sid. She said that I was Rina’s child, and that Rina was dead. And then, it struck me, "What a good idea." So I watched her. I made a little home movie, a little family film. It seems Maureen, Mom, she really got around. I mean, Cotton was one thing. Everybody knew about that, but Billy’s father, that was the key. Your boyfriend didn’t like seeing his daddy in my film too much, he didn’t like it at all. Once I supplied the motivation, all the kid needed was a few pointers; find a partner to sell out in case he gets caught, find someone to frame. It was like he was making a movie.
Sidney: You. This is all because of you.
Roman: I’m a director, Sid. I direct. I had no idea they were going to make a film of their own. What a film it turned out to be, huh? I mean introducing Sidney the victim, Sidney the survivor, Sidney the star!
Roman Bridger revealing himself to be behind the events of the first movie and indirectly responsible for the events of the second movie, Scream 3

Sidney: Even your friends.
Jill: My friends? What world are you living in? I don’t need friends. I need fans. Don’t you get it?! This has never been about killing you. It’s about becoming you. I mean for fuck’s sake, my own mother had to die, no great loss there, so I can stay true to the original. That’s sick, right? Well, sick is the new sane. You had your 15 minutes of fame, now I want mine! I mean, what am I supposed to do, go to college? Grad school? Work? Look around. We all live in public now. We’re all on the Internet. How do you think people become famous anymore? You don’t have to achieve anything. You just got to have fucked up shit happen to you. So you do have to die, Sid. Those are the rules. New movie, new franchise. There’s only room for one lead, and let’s face it, your ingenue days, they’re over.
Jill Roberts before stabbing her cousin, Sidney Prescott, Scream 4

"I visited your home this morning after you'd left. I tried to play husband. I tried to taste the life of a simple man. It didn't work out, so I took a souvenir... her pretty head. She begged for her life. She begged for her life... and the life inside her. Oh! You didn't know..."
"John Doe", Se7en

Andy: I’m done. Everything stops. Get someone else to run your scams.
Warden Sam Norton: Nothing stops. Nothing. Or you will do the hardest time there is. No more protection from the guards. I’ll pull you outta that one-bunk Hilton and cast you down with the sodomites. You’ll think you’ve been fucked by a train. And that library [you built]? Gone. Sealed off brick by brick. We’ll have us a little book barbecue in the yard. They’ll see the flames for miles. We’ll dance around it like wild Injuns. You understand me? Catch my drift? Or am I being obtuse? (turns to guard) Give him another month [in solitary] to think about it.

”Are you familiar with the study of graphology?... The psychological analysis of handwriting. The upwards strokes on the p, the j, the m indicate a genius level intellect. The flourishes on the lower zone denote a highly creative yet meticulous nature. But if one observes the overall slant and pressure of the handwriting there is a suggestion of acute narcissism, a complete lack of empathy, and pronounced inclination toward... moral insanity.”
Sherlock Holmes describing Professor James Moriarty to his face by his handwriting, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

"She'll scream. I'm going to take all night doing dear old Nancy. And you're going to die knowing it's all your fault! They've all screamed, Hartigan! Dozens of them. Maybe a hundred! Eight years' worth. Every one of them screamed! And if there weren't so many people here about, I would show you how to make dear old Nancy scream! It's going to be hell of a show!"
Roark "Yellow Bastard" Jr., from the film version of Sin City

James Bond: [after shooting at a bulletproof glass which forms the SPECTRE logo] You're a hard man to kill, Blofeld. [mockingly looks at Franz Oberhauser/Ernst Blofeld's scar] Ouch. I do hope that doesn't hurt too much.
Franz Oberhauser/ Ernst Stavro Blofeld: [shrugs] My wounds will heal. What about yours? Look around you, James — look. This is what's left of your world. Everything you ever stood for, everything you believed in — a ruin.
Bond: Why are we here? Did you miss me?
Oberhauser: No. [blows into the glass, creating water droplets. He then makes a heart sign out of the air, indicating that he's taken Madeleine Swann hostage] But I know someone who does.
Bond: Where is she?
Oberhauser: That's for you to find out. [Activates a timer] In three minutes, this building will be demolished. Well, I can get out easily. Now, you have a choice. Die trying to save her, or save yourself and live with the pain.
Bond: You're bluffing.
Oberhauser: Am I? [snickers smugly] I've really put you through it, haven't I? Oh well, that's brothers for you — they always know which button to press!

Blofeld is an unpredictable, dangerous and utterly ruthless megalomaniac of the most diabolical kind. He is also intensely sadistic and malicious, describing himself to James Bond as 'the author of all your pain'. Throughout the film, he plays cruel and elaborate games with James's mind concerning his past and the people he has lost his entire life - Vesper, M, his parents, etc. Blofeld also possesses little self-preservation, despite his sophisticated manner.
Description of the most recent incarnation of Ernst Stavro Blofeld from James Bond, Spectre

Darius Sayle: Revenge can be good, because in a few hours, at the science museum, my old friend the Prime Minister, he's gonna press a button and you know what's gonna happen? That button's gonna connect all the Stormbreakers on my wireless network. And at the same moment, it's gonna release a virus straight into the classes packed with British schoolchildren.
Alex Rider: You're going to kill thousands of innocent people.
Darius Sayle: Oh, no. Of course not. I'm gonna kill millions.

T-800: In three years, Cyberdyne will become the largest supplier of military computer systems. All stealth bombers are upgraded with Cyberdyne computers, becoming fully unmanned. Afterwards, they fly with a perfect operational record. The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes online August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.
Sarah Connor: Skynet fights back.
T-800: Yes. It launches its missiles against the targets in Russia.
John Connor: Why attack Russia? Aren't they our friends now?
T-800: Because Skynet knows that the Russian counterattack will eliminate its enemies over here.

Count Karnstein, Twins of Evil

Eliot Ness: I'm going to see you burn, you son of a bitch, because you killed my friend!
Frank Nitti: He died like a pig.
Eliot Ness: What did you say?
Frank Nitti: I said your friend died screaming like a stuck Irish pig. Now you think about that when I beat the rap.

Judge Doom: Can you guess what this is?
Jessica Rabbit: Oh my God, it's DIP!
Judge Doom: That's right, my dear! Enough to dip Toontown off the face of the Earth! Vehicle of my own design; 5,000 gallons of heated dip, pumped at enormous velocity through a pressurized water cannon. Toontown will be erased in a matter of minutes.

Michael "Mick" Taylor: Now, seeing as you're such an amusing fucking Einstein know-it-all bastard, I got this little game we can play, huh?...I ask you 10 questions, you get half of 'em right, so, five, and then I'll let you go
Paul: What's that (sander) for, Mick?
Mick: Oh, I forgot to mention. For each one that you get wrong, I get to grind off a finger.
Paul: So it's sort of like Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?
Mick: Except you don't get to phone a friend if you get one wrong because you'll be too busy screaming in fucking agony!

"And now do you understand what the Little Man's profession was? This horrid little being, whose face shone with kindness, went about the world looking for boys. Lazy boys, boys who hated books, boys who wanted to run away from home, boys who were tired of school—all these were his joy and his fortune. He took them with him to the Land of Toys and let them enjoy themselves to their heart's content. When, after months of all play and no work, they became little donkeys, he sold them on the market place. In a few years, he had become a millionaire."

Winston Yu: I think we'll go ahead anyway. After all, it's taken meticulous planning and I'd like to make my mark on the world.
Alex Rider: But you'll kill thousands — for no reason.
Winston Yu: What reason can you give me to spare them? World chaos does have its uses, Alex.
Alex Rider: Snakehead

"I have made it my life's work to study pain in all its different forms, and the pain that I intend to inflict on you will be perhaps even worse. There are two instruments that I am going to use. Earlier today, I promised you hell. And now, my dear child, it is here."
Razim to Alex Rider, Alex Rider: Scorpia Rising

"In slow motion, my own heavy breathing blocking out all other sounds, my vision blurring slightly around the edges, my hands move up over Luis' Adam's apple. I start to squeeze tightening the grip, but it's loose enough to let Luis turn around... so he can stand facing me... His eyelids flutter for an instant, then widen, which is exactly what I want. I want to see Luis's face contort and turn purple and I want him to know who it is who is killing him. I want to be the last face, the last thing, that Luis sees before he dies and I want to cry out "I'm fucking Courtney. Do you hear me? I'm fucking Courtney. Ha-ha-ha," and have these be the last words, the last sounds he hears until his own gurglings, accompanied by the crunching of his trachea, drown everything else out."
Patrick Bateman, American Psycho

I seek to know God by becoming more like Him. Thus I have replicated the many paths of God as recorded in our many holy books. Fratricide? Yes. I have committed fratricide, patricide... I have slain generations. I have been merciful - terribly merciful. Capriciously so. My mercy has driven men insane. I have done things so dark, countenanced monstrosities so appalling, that my cruelty has inspired fear in nations great and powerful. Even your own.
I have drowned men in their thousands. I have extinguished species, decimated populations with disease. On that frame, I stopped milord bishop's heart. It ceased to beat - for our entire history on this Earth, Commander, the very measure of death. And I reached down and clawed him back. I returned him to his body.
Because I wished it. Because it was godly.
And never, Commander, never do I explain myself - save to you, so that you can be my prophet in the court of the English king. Do you see? God is indifferent and God is silent and God is alien. And thus I shall become. I shall rise through horror and disaster, and in doing so I shall be more and more like Him. I shall be His Mirror.
I shall have words with the Silent God, Commander. I alone, of all men, shall know God as an equal. And then, we shall see.
Shem Shem Tsiem, Angelmaker

"You cared about a dead, gone bugger you never knew, and you laid him out, because you're a Waiting Man. But Vaughn, he didn't flinch because he doesn't care one bit. And he doesn't care about the living neither, not even a little. Vaughn Parry looks at us, and he sees corpses walking. He didn't flinch in there because he's always seeing dead men shudder. It's how he lives. He was born dead himself, and that's what the Screaming is. It's a body walking without a heart to feel for anyone else. And if ever he realizes that, Billy, you best not trust him, for the Waiting Man's oath ain't there for a laugh or our convenience. Them as have the Screaming, Billy, they're empty inside, and the things they can do when they start to understand what they are, they're black and cold and not for good fellows to dwell on."
Billy Friend's Dad on "Vaughn Parry", aka Shem Shem Tsiem, Angelmaker

Georges Du Roy: I confess it. My comrades and I, the brothers of the Red Circle, are addicts. Connoisseurs, certainly. Fastidious, perhaps. Choosy, naturally. But addicts. We want what we want. We must have it, Must. If we can no longer participate, we must watch. It is the great secret delight of all mankind, you know.
Kate Reed: Murder?
Georges Du Roy: You could call it that… but it’s so commonplace a term. Murder is brute stuff. One man shoots or stabs another, in a quarrel or for no reason. Even duels, assassinations, factory accidents… they are over too quickly, not savoured, not enjoyed.

"He will make of this century a killing ground. In his warm days, he murdered one-third of his own subjects. Imagine what he would do to those he considers his enemies."

I will cleanse this galaxy of all life. Then, when no sentient thing is left alive, I will kill you, Ellimist. That's my game. Shall we play?
Crayak to the Ellimist, Animorphs—The Ellimist Chronicles

Crayak: I reversed the effects of your meddling. The Mamathisk reverted to cannibalism when they experienced repeated crop failures. A plant parasite. Impossible for them to stop. But as you know, cannibalism is a losing adaptation. The Mamathisk are effectively extinct.
The Ellimist: Are you mad?!
Crayak: No, I don't think so, Ellimist. I'm just a gamer. Like you. But with a perhaps a different philosophy: I don't play the game to save the species, but to annihilate it. I play the game of genocide.
Animorphs—The Ellimist Chronicles

"This new force, this individual, began to make his presence known in our galaxy. And he had different ideas from ours. He sees a universe of conflict, pain, and terror. He craves fear. Not his own, of course, but the fear of others. He is a strange perfectionist, in a way. He wants a galaxy cleansed of creation. His goal, I soon realized, is to destroy life. His method is to use one species against another, strong destroying weak, and then strong in turn being destroyed by the stronger still. He believes that there should be only one species. A single sentient race, which would be subjugated by him."
The Ellimist on Crayak, Animorphs #26: The Attack

"Pain – the beatings. Humiliation – the rape. The silver wire. Murder with class. For Sly, it was a tidy little three-act play, with only the set and the second lead as variables....Sly enjoyed traveling, and had several scrapbooks filled with postcards he picked up as he did so. Occasionally he would page through them, sipping a drink, smiling over the reminders of places he'd been, and the trinkets he'd collected there."
—On Sylvester "Sly" Yost, Betrayal in Death

"I intend to establish the Fourth Reich. Envision this if you will, dear doctor. One fine morning, a little over five weeks hence, the proud city of London will be struck with a massive quake. In minutes it will be reduced to no more than a pile of ruin. Yes, in just a few minutes we will have accomplished what all Hitler’s missiles failed to do in World War Two. Then, before the stunned world can even understand what has happened, Paris will suffer a similar fate. The Eiffel Tower will fall, the whole city will turn to dust. Perhaps I shall also smash New York City. Yes, that would be most impressive and highly satisfying. To destroy that decadent place, all the sweaty millions of inferior humans who dwell there in filth. All the killers and thieves and radicals. To crush them all beneath brick and stone and concrete, to send their steel and glass towers slamming down on them . . . ah, that would be fine. I have a dream, doctor, a dream of Armageddon."
Red Skull, Captain America: Holocaust for Hire

"I cast about for a man to aid me, and chose the Falcon, because of his utter lack of all characteristics men call good."
Salome, from "A Witch Shall Be Born" ("Conan the Barbarian"), about Constantius

"She should be horrified. She should be disgusted. She didn’t want to open her eyes – not because she was scared to look upon the literal bloodbath she had created but because she wanted her eyelids to receive the full benefit. She reached out a hand and rested it on the cool flank of the dead maid, the woman she had killed. She realised she felt nothing. No, not nothing, worse than that: she felt thrilled. She felt powerful. She felt back in a place of dominance, feeding off the little people, thriving off their devotion. She felt herself."
Elizabeth Sasdy, Countess Dracula novel, by Guy Adams

The Iceman: She picked Gerry over me not once but twice. I was really pissed off.
Emma Kane: I thought Gerry was your friend!
Iceman: Gerry was varsity; he thought everyone was his friend. He was varsity and I was always second string, since we were twelve. That’s what’s so ironic. Tonight was supposed to be a quiet dinner just between Barb and myself, that was the original idea, Barb Mullens was supposed to be sitting where you are right now. But I just couldn’t believe you picked Gerry over me as well. I couldn’t fucking believe it. As mad as I had been at Barb, I was even more pissed off at you. You didn’t know me as a pimply fucking teenager, you have no excuse in picking Gerry over me. None. So tonight I cook for you.
Kane: How can you do this... how can you eat children?
Iceman: They taste good. It’s not that different from eating veal, really. In fact, it tastes better!
Kane: You’re EATING KIDS... you crossed the line of sanity a long time ago. You are a fruitcake psycho-killer! Listen to me... don’t do this!
Creatures of Appetite

Brimstone: Dead souls dream only of death, Small dreams for small men. It is life that expands to fill worlds. Life is your master, or death is. Look at you. You are a lord of ashes, a lord of char. You are filthy with your victory. Enjoy it, Joram, for you will never know another. You are lord of a country of ghosts, and that is all that you will ever be.
Joram: It shall be a country of ghosts, I promise you that. A country of corpses. No beast shall crawl but that it drags a weight of shackles and is so scored by the lash that it can hardly raise its head!

"I'll tell you what it was, girl. I was younger than you, six, maybe seven. A woodcarver set up shop in the village under my father's keep, and to buy favor he sent us gifts. The old man made marvelous toys. I don't remember what I got, but it was Gregor's gift I wanted. A wooden knight, all painted up, every joint pegged separate and fixed with strings, so you could make him fight. Gregor is five years older than me, the toy was nothing to him, he was already a squire, near six foot tall and muscled like an ox. So I took his knight, but there was no joy to it, I tell you. I was scared all the while, and true enough, he found me. There was a brazier in the room. Gregor never said a word, just picked me up under his arm and shoved the side of my face down in the burning coals and held me there while I screamed and screamed. You saw how strong he is. Even then, it took three grown men to drag him off me. The septons preach about the seven hells. What do they know? Only a man who's been burned knows what hell is truly like."
Sandor Clegane telling Sansa Stark how he got his scars from his brother Gregor, A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire)

"They should all be put to the sword," Joffrey declared suddenly. "The Mallisters and Blackwoods and Brackens...all of them. They're traitors. I want them killed, Grandfather. I won't have any generous terms. The king turned to Grand Maester Pycelle. "And I want Robb Stark's head too. Write to Lord Frey and tell him. The king commands. I'm going to have it served to Sansa at my wedding feast."

"He is a great hunter, and women are his favorite prey. He strips them naked and sets them loose in the woods[...] When Ramsay catches them he rapes them, flays them, feeds their corpses to his dogs, and brings their skins back to the Dreadfort as trophies. If they have given him good sport, he slits their throats before he skins them. Elsewise, t'other way round."..."The Boltons have always been as cruel as they are cunning, but this one seems a beast in human skin."
—On Ramsay Snow/Bolton, A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire)

"Unreal, isn't it? Sometimes even I can't believe it. I mean, ever since I was little, I always dreamed of committing mass destruction. But on this kind of scale? It's more than even I had a right to expect… It took half a million years for your people to build the city of Bryn Spi, the shining jewel of your planet. It took me one and a half hours to blow it into a billion shiny pieces. And by this time next year-and this is my favorite part-it will look like nothing ever stood here at all… The few who are still alive scurry through the ruins like rats. They have no powers, no hope, no reason to live, really. But still they stumble on. Pathetic."
Ergent Seth, Daniel X

"You're heartless, ambitious, arrogant, insidious, and without shame or empathy. More, you're a murderer."
Darth Plagueis to his disciple Palpatine, Darth Plagueis

"I've taken thousands like you, lovely child. Taken them and broken them. There was nothing they could do. There is nothing you can do. You were made to feel desire. I was made to use it against you. It is the natural cycle. Life and death. Mating and death. Predator and prey."
Lord Raith, the White King, Blood Rites (The Dresden Files)

"I will come for you. I will kill you. I will kill your blood, your friends, your beasts. I will kill the flowers in your home and the trees in your tiny fields. I will visit such death upon whatever is yours that your very name will be remembered only in curses and tales of terror."
"Shagnasty" the skinwalker, Turn Coat (The Dresden Files)

"It didn’t take a wizard to see the Titan’s soul. It was already all around us. The sheer desire for ruin and destruction that filled her soul and had allowed her to master the Eye had been made manifest in the world. This was the world that Ethniu longed for. The terror, the death, the blood, the destruction, the senseless chaos—this was who and what she was. This madness was the fire that had fueled the Titans, that had made their destruction a necessity in the first place. Blood was their art. Screams were their music. Horror was their faith. Mortals could not stand before this. I watched my death coming for me and wept in sheer despair."
-Harry Dresden on Ethinu, the last Titan, Battle Ground (2020) (The Dresden Files)

"[...]There's a particular sweetness in bending someone's will that mere force cannot possess. The deaths of the More family? A night's entertainment. Slowly turning Charity into my most devoted progeny? Unending bliss."
John Redgrave, Evernight: Balthazar

"...Kreeg is...a fierce and bloody-minded savage...Now that he is the war chieftain of Atlantis, his brutality knows no bounds! Those who slighted him in the past have been taken from their homes and thrown into the dungeons! And those who dare to speak out against his actions have been condemned to death. Already their heads begin to decorate the pikes on the city’s walls!...Kreeg and Byrrah have since announced their plans to declare war on the surface world and to "purify" the undersea kingdoms by ridding them of such non-Atlanteans as the Lemurians. They have already sent forth several terrorist squads to plant explosive charges on offshore platforms and mine the largest of the surface-dwellers' harbors."
Namor on Warlord Kreeg, Fantastic Four: To Free Atlantis

"We are everywhere. We are everyone. Or at least, everyone who matters. We supply a word here and a push there, and the world goes the way we want it to. Always remember the Creed I gave you. Words to live forever by. Greed is good. Contempt is good. Hate is good. The crushing of the weak and glorying in their plight is good. Anything that profits us is good. Because we . . . are all that matters. No one else lasts long enough to matter. They come and they go but we go on. Everyone else in the world is just there to serve us, or for us to play with. They are mayflies. We are Immortals."
Methuselah to the Family of Immortals, From Hell with Love

Martin Vanger: Of course my actions aren’t socially acceptable, but my crime is first and foremost a crime against the conventions of society. Death doesn’t come until the end of my guests’ visits here, after I’ve grown weary of them. It’s always so fascinating to see their disappointment.
Mikael Blomkvist: Disappointment?
Martin Vanger: Exactly. Disappointment. They imagine that if they please me, they’ll live. They adapt to my rules. They start to trust me and develop a certain camaraderie with me, hoping to the very end that this camaraderie means something. The disappointment comes when it finally dawns on them that they’ve been well and truly screwed.

"I think it's time you went away now, dearie. Young people go missing so often this century. You'll just be one more."

"I know who you are. I'm going to take over Frank's body. Then i'm going to throw your body into the flames-and we'll watch it burn. Want to see your hands burn? Say goodbye to your fingers, Spencer!"
Oswald Manse preparing to dispose of Spencer Kassimir's body, Goosebumps Series 2000: Attack Of The Graveyard Ghouls

"Note to self: Possessing people is hilarious! To think of all the sensations I've been missing out on—burning, stabbing, drowning. It's like a buffet tray of fun! Once I destroy that journal, I'll enjoy giving this body its grand finale—by throwing it off the water tower! Best of all, people will just think Pine Tree lost his mind and his mental form will wander in the mindscape forever. Want to join him, Shooting Star?"
Bill Cipher while possessing Dipper Pines' body, Gravity Falls: Journal 3

"I will strip away all that you know, all that you love, until you have no other shelter but mine."
Darkling to Alina, The Grisha Trilogy

"Out in the corridor, Frank [Bryce] suddenly became aware that the hand gripping his walking stick was slippery with sweat. The man with the cold voice had killed a woman. He was talking about it without any kind of remorse—with amusement. He was dangerous—a madman. And he was planning more murders—this boy, Harry Potter, whoever he was—was in danger."

"You have been brought here before the Council of Magical Law, so that we may pass judgment on you, for a crime so heinous that we have rarely heard the like of it within this court. We have heard the evidence against you. The four of you stand accused of capturing an Auror - Frank Longbottom - and subjecting him to the Cruciatus Curse, believing him to have knowledge of the present whereabouts of your exiled master, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named... You are further accused, of using the Cruciatus Curse on Frank Longbottom's wife, when he would not give you information. You planned to restore He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named to power, and to resume the lives of violence you presumably led while he was strong. I now ask the jury to raise their hands if they believe, as I do, that these crimes deserve a life sentence in Azkaban!"
Barty Crouch Sr. detailing the torture of Frank Longbottom by Bellatrix Lestrange, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

"You need more persuasion. Very well, take the smallest one. Let him watch while we torture the little girl. I'll do it."

"I wouldn't want to miss a trip to Hogwarts, Dumbledore, not when there are throats to be ripped out ... delicious, delicious..."

"Fenrir Greyback is, perhaps, the most savage werewolf alive today. He considers it as his mission to bite and to contaminate as many people as possible; he wants to create enough werewolves to overcome the wizards. Voldemort has promised him prey in return for his services. Greyback specializes in children... Bite them young, he says, and raise them away from their parents, raise them to hate normal wizards. Voldemort has threatened to unleash him upon people's sons and daughters; it is a threat that usually produces good results."
Remus Lupin describing Fenrir Greyback, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

"I do think it's shocking, but it had to be... We really are talking about someone who is incredibly power-hungry. Racist, really. And what do those kinds of people do? They treat human life so lightly. I wanted to be accurate in that sense. My editor was shocked by the way the character was killed, which was very dismissive. That was entirely deliberate. That is how people die in those situations. It was just like, you're in my way and you're going to die."
J.K. Rowling on Lord Voldemort killing Cedric Diggory

Carla Delgado: This is a game to you?
Decker: No. It's basic human nature. Remove our inhibitions—remove consequences—and we want to watch someone die. If you can get over the squeamishness, it's surprisingly satisfying. Like cracking your neck. Releasing tension. Feeling a little rush of exhilaration. And once, you're past the initial thrill, it just becomes a question of how many.
Carla: You want to see how many you can kill before you lose the game.
Decker: Exactly.
Hunted, by Darcy Coates

"We had given AM sentience. Inadvertently, of course, but sentience nonetheless. But it had been trapped. AM wasn't God, he was a machine. We had created him to think, but there was nothing it could do with that creativity. In rage, in frenzy, the machine had killed the human race, almost all of us, and still it was trapped. AM could not wander, AM could not wonder, AM could not belong. He could merely be. And so, with the innate loathing that all machines had always held for the weak, soft creatures who had built them, he had sought revenge. And in his paranoia, he had decided to reprieve five of us, for a personal, everlasting punishment that would never serve to diminish his hatred... that would merely keep him reminded, amused, proficient at hating man. Immortal, trapped, subject to any torment he could devise for us from the limitless miracles at his command."
Ted describing AM, I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream

"I am eternal, child. I am the eater of worlds, and of children! And you are NEXT!"

Amir: That's what you were doing in Mazar, going door-to-door? Taking out the garbage?
Assef: Precisely.
Amir: In the west, they have an expression for that. They call it ethnic cleansing.
Assef: Do they? Ethnic cleansing. I like it. I like the sound of it.

Lord Toramin: You dare! I offered you my hand in friendship, and this is how you repay me!
The Hunter: You offered me nothing... You offered me an empty, dead world, and a chance to serve your kind. You would condemn me to a pitiful existence and call it a favor. I know your kind, demon. I have stared into your dead eyes as you smile and lie.
The Last Bucelarii Book 2: Lament of the Fallen

"This guy is a psychopath. He is bent on destroying all humanity. And he could succeed. If I don't stop him soon, nothing will."
Sita on Eddie Fender, The Last Vampire: Black Blood

"You do not know what he will do to you. He has powers you cannot imagine. A lust for cruelty and pain that cannot be spoken. He rips the eyes from his victims and stores them in jars to later feed to caged rats he keeps in his personal quarters. He pulls the bones from slaves before their very eyes and munches on them at gruesome suppers. All this he does to set the stage for his satanic invocations. But when the spirits come, there is nowhere to hide."
Landulf of Capa on himself, The Last Vampire: Creatures of forever

"The man appears devoid of even the slightest trace of empathy, and it is that lack, spread throughout the rank and file of the men and women of the SS who herd the Jews to their deaths, that is the engine that drives this camp. How strange to think of a lack of a quality as a driving force. Himmler is a complex mass of emptiness."
Sita on Heinrich Hinmler, The Last Vampire : The Sacred Veil

"I was not unacquainted with blood. I am sometimes a coyote, after all. I've killed my share of rabbits and mice. Last winter I killed two men-werewolves. But this death was different. Evil. He hadn't killed her for food, revenge, or self-defense. He'd killed her, and four other people, because he liked it. And I hadn't been able to stop him."
Mercedes "Mercy" Thompson on Cory Littleton, Mercy Thompson : Blood Bound

"That's the path you embrace, Louise, that's what you are: kindhearted. Just by existing you are the enemy of the Light Bringer. My enemy. I hate you so badly I'm in pain from it. And you'll pay for that. Nobody hurts me and goes off to laugh about it with their friends. I'll make you the army's whore. I'll make every one of my followers fuck you. They'll keep on fucking you until your mind shatters and your heart bursts. Then when there's nothing left but a lump of insane meat bleeding its life away into the gutter I'll use the soul-killer to eradicate what's left of you from the universe, because there's no way I'll ever share a single night in hell with you. You're not that worthy."
Quinn Dexter, The Naked God

"I killed, I die. At least I killed like a monster kills, instead of with iron, and dying by inches. That’s Titania’s way, the Queen who stands in darkness and screams about her light. My poisons are kinder. This is how it should end. They won’t remember the way I died, but they’ll remember how I lived, forever. I was the monster under your bed, wasn’t I? I’ll be the monster waiting for your children."
Oleander de Merelands, October Daye: Late Eclipses

"There is power in blood, and there is power in suffering, and for centuries, Blind Michael’s lands had been a constant source of suffering. He had carved the islet with his own two hands, and stabilized and expanded it on the backs of the children he destroyed. This was a graveyard that stretched from one end of the horizon to the other. No matter how far we walked, we would still be walking in the footprints of the dead."
October Daye on the actions of Blind Micheal, October Daye : The Brightest Fell

"Rarely has a villain come along who is more dark and frightening than Bill Sikes. He’s drunk, brutal, selfishly bullish and possesses a consuming desire for revenge and control that is further blinkered by his inability to be reasoned with – all made all the more fearsome by his realism.
Men much like him existed then and men much like him exist now. He is the one man on the streets of London who never showed a scrap of kindness – apparent or otherwise – to young orphan Oliver and remains probably Charles Dickens’s darkest character. He manages his career as a criminal and those who work with him with a harsh iron fist. He beats those closest to him – his girlfriend Nancy and his dog Bulls Eye – without remorse and when he discovers that Nancy plans to return Oliver to his wealthy guardians he murders her in a fit of anger."
Catherine Gee describing Bill Sikes of Oliver Twist

"The best way to describe Lamashtu is evil in its purest, most concentrated form. In ancient times, she was feared throughout Mesopotamia for her bloodlust. She was best known as an enemy of children, especially the unborn. But her craving for depravity didn't stop there—she was infamous for murdering men and women as well, feasting on the blood of her victims, and driving her victims mad with nightmares prior to dispatching them."
Dr. Campbell on Lamashtu, On Devil's Wings

"He's evil to the bone. His primary power is to make people feel a mad need to sacrifice whoever they love. Only now, that need will be contagious—the lust to slaughter in Cruach's name—passing from person to person."
Lucia the Huntress on Crom Cruach, Pleasure of a Dark Prince

Teller: It’s rule by fear. You’re not just demanding submission, you’re generating evil.
Tarkin: Then evil will have to do.
Teller: What transforms a man into a monster, Tarkin?

"I do my best to be the worst."
Vilu Daskar, The Legend of Luke

"Look and see me, puny man. Look upon Barlow, who has passed the centuries as you have passed hours before a fireplace with a book. Look and see the great creature of the night whom you would slay with your miserable little stick. Look upon me, scribbler. I have written in human lives, and blood has been my ink. Look upon me and despair!"'
Kurt Barlow taunting Ben as he's prepared to stake him, 'Salem's Lot

"I love to observe the look of pure horror that crosses a man’s face when he realizes that he is, without doubt, going to die… And that is the look I’m talking about."
Jonathan Killian, Scarecrow

"If you killed me now in rank cold blood, it would be my final victory, and perhaps my greatest achievement. For it would prove only one thing: that I broke you. I turned the last good man in the world into a cold-hearted murderer. And all I did was kill your girl."
Jonathan Killian, Scarecrow

"They had gotten a sheet on The Webmaster from Mexican authorities. McKenna had seen sadism in his time, but nothing that approached Webmaster. Serial killers were nice guys compared to him. (Killed) a U.N. Peacekeeper in Congo and Bosnia. Accused of the rape and killing of three Serbian girls... In Mexico, he was put on trial for seventeen counts of mass murder. That is seventeen separate mass murders of families at the request of the cartel. Someone had shortchanged a Don, so the guy's two little girls were kidnapped and massacred on tape (by Webmaster), then the video was left in the mailbox of the father. The same for the wife, and finally his turn came. There were DVDs of home invasions with masked men raping wives and daughters in front of their fathers, forcing the father to have sex with the kid, then executing them one by one. (Webmaster) was never convicted. No wonder the jurors acquitted. "
Detective McKenna on The Webmaster and his rap sheet, The Schwarzschild Radius

"[Keith] was good at what he did. Good at pretending not to be a monster... the night of our honeymoon is when I found out that the future I had headed into was a place made in hell... it was like the opposite of Halloween. Instead of being a human wearing a monster mask, Keith was monster wearing a human mask. I was a virgin when I married him. He stayed sweet, right up to the point he carried me across the threshold of that cheap hotel room. Once the door closed, the mask came off... I'll never forget that smile. Hitler might have smiled like that when he thought about Jews dying in one of his horrible camps... I think it was his voice, more than what he was doing, that scared me. It was calm and flat and—normal. It didn't fit with what he was doing, not at all. He put me on my knees and... you couldn't say he had sex with me. No. I don't care that we were husband and wife. He raped me."
Patricia Connolly on her husband, Keith Hillstead, Shadow Man

"I was wrong, Langley. You are not merely a criminal. You really are a devil, a 'Ripper'. A creature so monstrous that he would use a woman for his pleasure and then, when it suited him, kill not only her, but her unborn child as well."
Sherlock Holmes to Stephen "Chilford Ripper" Langley, Sherlock Holmes and the Chilford Ripper (by Roger Jaynes)

Sherlock Holmes: Alexandre Moreau is nothing less than an inhuman fiend, a Frankenstein brought to life. He has no humanity. He ordered one of his atrocious creatures to kill me. Left unchecked, who knows what he might unleash upon the world? Would you really create a world of those rats with Moreau as their ruler? The mind rebels at such a thought.
Challenger: It's no surprise to me that you are as short-sighted as those dullards at the Royal Society. Could you not see? Moreau may be misguided, but certainly he will find the right path eventually. This man may have found the key to evolution! He could answer the most tantalizing question of all: from whence did men come? Perhaps he could even recreate Cro-Magnon men. What we could learn from a living specimen! Look beyond your magnifying glass, Mr. Holmes.
Holmes: Moreau wants but one thing: power. He creates servants, and he rules through fear and pain. He has no interest in benefiting his fellow man. He had foregone his research into universal blood transfusion when I first knew him; that only provided the veil for his true interests. Perhaps you have never looked into the eyes of a monster, Challenger, but I have. And now I see the situation is worse than ever. He must be stopped, once and for all. This time I shall not fail.
Sherlock Holmes and the House of Pain

"...if the world was destroyed with them, he really didn’t care....He was always self-centered. This just took it to the extreme."

Aubrey Rose Wadsworth: Well? Why did you kill those women one way and begin murdering others here differently?
H.H. Holmes (aka Jack the Ripper): Oh, I've found the method of killing isn't what excites me. It's death. Whether I strangle someone or flay them open, exposing their innermost secrets, or watch as they slowly asphyxiate behind a closed door, it's their pain, their inability to conquer death, that thrills me.
Stalking Jack the Ripper: Capturing the Devil, by Kerri Maniscalco

"Somebody wants you dead. That's fine by me. But he didn't stipulate how you were to die. Nor how long it should take. That was left up to me to decide. And we got all night."
Ezekiel Daun, StarCraft II: Devils' Due

"[Ezekiel Daun] don't just kill. He drags it out. Likes to torture his victims in every way possible afore he kills 'em. He knows just where and how to hurt."

"Amon's ascension is our oblivion. He means to erase everything the xel'naga wrought. Including us. He wants us all scattered to dust, along with every planet and every star. That is His final goal."
First Ascendant Nuroka, about Amon, Ascension

It took (Adrik) Thorsen three minutes to destroy the platform. Bodies floating everywhere, a cloud of death surrounding the distant Earth, as it always had. In two more minutes, he had used the particle cannon to neutralize his own troopers as well. History had too often shown that great men were brought down by those who dared to share the glory for others' actions. Thorsen felt no remorse because (he felt) none was warranted.

"(Simon) Legree is introduced...for...bringing to the minds of honourable Southern men...a very important feature in the system of slavery...: that no Southern law requires any test of CHARACTER from the man to whom the absolute power of master is granted."
Harriet Beecher Stowe, A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin (can be found here)

"We have King Artur, of Sinister Albion. For every glorious dream, there's a nightmare equivalent, somewhere in the time-streams. For every helping hand, a kick in the face. In Sinister Albion, Merlin Satanspawn decided to embrace his father's qualities instead of rejecting them, and brought up young Artur in his own awful image. Under their direction, Camelot became a place of blood and horror, where knights in terrible armour feasted on the hearts of good men, and Albion blazed from end to end with burning Wicker Men."
John Taylor on the Sinister Albion versions of King Artur and Merlin Satanspawn, The Unnatural Inquirer

"Have you heard enough, Tom? It won't be long before you share her torment. And what she is suffering is far worse than that of a witch being tested. Think of the jabbing of sharp pins; imagine the weight of heavy rocks constricting the chest; feel the flames of the fire flickering nearer and nearer to the stake. The flesh bubbles and the blood boils. It hurts so much, but eventually death brings release. For Alice, though, there is no such respite. She is trapped in the dark for eternal torment. Eternal! That means it will go on forever! And soon I'll be back to collect you. The power of the jar has almost failed."
The Fiend, The Wardstone Chronicles: The Spook's Destiny

The Fiend: What is evil?
Grimalkin: You tell me! You are the one who should know!
The Fiend: The only evil is to deny yourself what you really want. Thus I do no evil because I always impose my will upon others. I always take what I want!
Grimalkin: You twist everything. No wonder they call you the Father of Lies.
The Fiend: What is better – to use one's power to the very limit and test oneself, or to restrain one's natural urges? It is better to do the former, to expand and grow in the doing. And what of you, Grimalkin? What is the difference between you and me? That is what you practise too!
Grimalkin: I like to test myself and grow in strength and skill, but not at the expense of the weak. You have always hurt others just for the pleasure it gives you. What is the pleasure in that – to hurt those unable to defend themselves?
The Fiend: It is the greatest pleasure of all!
Grimalkin: Why did you kill my child?
The Fiend: Our child, Grimalkin! Our child! I did it because I could. I also did it to hurt you! I did it because I could not suffer it to live! Grown to manhood, that child would have become my deadly enemy, and a dangerous one too. But now another has replaced him – the boy called Thomas Ward. I will destroy him as well. I cannot allow him to become a man. He must die too, just like your child. Firstly, I will do it because I can! Secondly, to prevent him destroying me. Thirdly, to hurt you, Grimalkin. Because without him your last hope of revenge will be gone!
The Wardstone Chronicles: Spook's: I Am Grimalkin

"At first Cynthia didn't see the young boy hanging one the wall to the left of the door, or the instruments of torture, or the menacing metal meat-hook suspended from the ceiling... When she saw the emaciated young boy for the first time she just stood and stared, desperately wanting to believe that the horror before her was a product of her imagination... He was real. This wasn't work. It wasn't science. Her husband was a monster. There was no denying the awfulness of what he'd done."
Cynthia Galbraith on her husband Dr. David Galbraith, White Is the Coldest Colour

"Your timing couldn't be better, my dear. You're just in time to watch the little bastard die. And then, once you've helped me dispose of the body, it will be your turn. I suspect it will be a welcome release, my dear. But, don't be under any misapprehension; you won't die easy. I'll take my time, and you will suffer. Oh yes, you'll suffer. But, not to worry, that's for later."
Dr. David Galbraith to his wife Cynthia, White Is the Coldest Colour

"'You will die, Rat,' he said, and thrust his sword forward towards [Ciri]. 'Are not you afraid? That's because you do not know what death looks like.'
He grabbed her by the hair, pulled her, and forced her to stand up. Immediately he dragged her away, screaming, to the wall Mistle was lying by.
'So you do not fear death?' He growled and pushed her head down. 'Then look at that little Rat. This is death. This is how one dies. Look, there’s guts. This is blood. And that's shit, which she used to have inside of her.'"

"They paid me a lot of money to do it. And then I've taken my son captive and I’m torturing him, then I was going to take my grandson captive and threaten him. So I went to the producers and I said, 'Look, are there any redeeming qualities to this character?' They looked at me as though I was nuts, I was asking something bizarre."
James Cromwell, on his 24 character Phillip Bauer

Phillip Bauer: I'm a patriot, Jack. I never wanted any harm to come to this country.
Jack Bauer: You wanna lie to yourself, you go ahead, but stop lying to me! You let all of this happen just so you could cover up what you did!
Phillip: *grins* You have all the smarts that Graem never had.

"I was destined to be the greatest actor of all time. Monty Clift? If I had been in A Place in the Sun George Stevens would have had me do the walk to the electric chair shirtless. I mailed away for one of those Charles Atlas exercise routines that they advertised in the back of the Superman comics, and I’d practice acting faces in front of the mirror. Sad. Happy. Moody. But Mother wouldn’t let me. I HATE HER. She can’t keep my greatness in the slips. One door closes, another opens. And this body is America. Strong, violent, and full of limitless potential. My arms will hold them down when they struggle. My legs will run them down when they flee. I will be the US Steel of murder. My body holds a heart that cannot love. When Dora died she looked right into my eyes and I felt nothing. The clown was put on Earth to show me the way. To introduce me to the sweet language of murder. But I am no clown. I am perfection. I am greatness. I am the future, and the future starts tonight."

"I wish you could be inside my body for one minute to know what it feels like to be me. It’s like when I had tuberculosis and you took me out to the Utah desert, and there was nothing but dry, open space for hundreds of miles around us - that is what is inside of me. Those girls were a cool stream of glacier water; my heart bloomed as they nourished it. And now it’s all gone. There is nothing left but the dust and the scorpions inside of me. I was never destined to feel love. The desert knows no mercy. Anything you try to plant out there dies. I must accept this emptiness as a blessing, not a curse. I know why I was put here, Mother. My purpose is to bring death."

"Hey, I’m an open book. Anything you want to know. (pause) How sweet that virgin gypsy tasted? Special smell of a newborn’s neck? My first nun? No that’s a great story"

"Vertigo is measured in lives. Fifty-six people died to perfect this high. Believe me when I say that they did not die for nothing."

Ash: Where the hell is Pablo?
Baal: It’s hard to say. See, most cultures have different names for the netherworld. Um, the Aztecs called it Mictlan. The Greeks; Tartarus. You call it hell. None of it’s correct, but your tiny little minds cannot comprehend the reality of the dimension that your friend now finds himself in. (chuckles) Y’know, you almost had me. You really blocked off all my options. Well, most of them, anyway. And it’s not ideal being inside a dead body, but it’s not an insurmountable challenge. Especially when all I had to do was convince the one man foolish enough to swallow my chicanery that if he went back in time, he could resurrect his dead little friend.
Ash: You flim-flamming S.O.B. You played me like a cheap fiddle!
Baal: Oh, don’t be so sore, Ash. There’s no way you could’ve known! See, my transference was one of those blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments.

Nish: But [Clayton Leigh] never did get that pardon!
Rolo Haynes: Shit, no, cuz he was GUILTY!
Nish: But wasn’t there some doubt? You know, like that documentary?
Rolo: Fake news! Hatchet job!
Nish: What about the DNA tampering?
Rolo: (sharp inhale) Seriously? There’s no doubt about it! The day he got the [electric] chair was a great day for justice! Clayton couldn’t complain; I mean, he was gonna be a pioneer! I was gonna slurp up his entire consciousness. He’d be the first guy on death row to survive his own execution! The transfer went beautifully. Before I knew it, Clayton was born again [in my museum exhibit]. But see, I knew just seeing the guy walking around captive, that was good, but that wasn’t much of a draw. But pulling the [electric chair] lever yourself? Now that’s an attraction. Dawson’s pain tech had paved the way for it. A perfect re-creation of exactly how the agony of electrocution feels. Every volt simulated for real. Key was to never let him exceed 15 seconds at max voltage. That would wipe his digital synapses out for good, kill him. Ten seconds seemed to be the optimum shock length, so that became the intractable limit. In fact, in the early days [of the attraction], the problem was fitting everyone in! But, of course, it was really the souvenirs that were driving trade. It was beautiful. Every time you finished juicing him, out pops a conscious, sentient snapshot of Clayton! Not a recording, but a true copy of his mind perpetually experiencing that beautiful pain! Stuck forever in that one perfect moment of agony! Always on. Always suffering! And what you’d call... FUN-SIZED! (laughs insanely)

Daly: Take your post; that is an order.
Cole: I’m... not doing this.
Daly: ...the whole thing’s much better if you let yourself get into it.
Cole: If you think that I am playing along with your Space Force bullshit—
Daly: Space Fleet.
Cole: Whatever! You can think again!
Daly: This is my ship. I am your captain; an order is an order.
Cole: Then go fuck yourself... sir.
Daly: Okay... so we’re doing it this way...
(Daly points his hand at Cole, which makes her scoff)
Cole: (mockingly) What, are you gonna throw a fireball?
(Daly smiles and snaps his fingers, causing Cole to lose her entire face, and she starts suffocating)
Daly: Oh, dear! You can’t see. You can’t breathe. Unpleasant, isn’t it? Do you submit? (beat) You won’t die, you know. No one dies in here unless I want them to. I can... keep you like this forever if I feel like it. Forever gasping for breath with a mouth that isn’t there. Do you submit?
(Cole nods)
->Daly: Good girl.

Cole: Don’t you wanna fight back [against Daly]? Why won’t you fight back?
Walton: Tommy.
Cole: ...who is Tommy?
Walton: He’s my son. He’s six years old. At least he was when I woke up here [on the USS Callister]. See, in the early days of this ship, it was just me and Daly. I was his pet project. He tried everything to break me. And I withstood it all, cuz I just thought there was still a chance that I could get out and see my boy again. In a way, I was right; I did get to see him again. Just not the real him. Daly told me what happened. Back on the outside, the real me brought Tommy to work one day. Showed him around. He woulda loved seeing all those computers. He’s really into that stuff. Anyway, evidently, Tommy had a lollipop that day. That’s all [the DNA] Daly needed. He copied him. In here. It was Tommy, alright. He was alike in every way. You know what Daly did to him? He took Tommy and he threw him out of the airlock. Right out into space. And he made me watch. (tearing up) Have you ever seen an unsuited body compress in space? They freeze... and crack like a porcelain doll. I take my hat off to Daly; the detail in this place is exceptional.

"Hello? Loyal trusty crew, come in! I know you can hear me. Whatever it is you’re thinking of doing isn’t going to work, but it is going to cost you! If you thought what happened to you in the past was bad, that was nothing! What I’m going to do to you is gonna be goddamn fucking BIBLICAL! I’m literally gonna turn your insides out! BUT... I’ll keep you alive! In tiny little jars! And there you’ll stay until I’M BORED OF YOU!"

"I wanna torture you. I used to love it, and it's been a long time. I mean, the last time I tortured somebody, they didn't even have chainsaws. "

Robert Cameron: I'm going to get rid of you.
Robert's double: Really? Look at you. Tied up in that cast. Weak. You'll be easier to handle than that Miss Gilden was.
Robert: "Was?" What do you mean "was?"
Double: She's dead. Fell on her rose shears, poor thing.
Robert: You killed her. You kill everything. You're killing me!
Double: It won't be much of a loss. No one will know. Not even your parents.
Robert: What do you mean?
Double: Pretty soon, there won't be anyone left here but me.

Rahm Tak: You may, indeed. I'm going to kill all the humans and burn the disgusting place to the ground.
Defiance, "The World We Seize"

The Master: I want to restore this city and this planet to their former glory.
The Doctor: Don't listen to him, sir.
The Master: (Passionately.) You have here a wonderful weapon! Why with it you could bring good and peace to every world in the galaxy!
The Doctor: On the contrary! He'll bring only death and destruction!
The Master: This planet of yours could be the center of a mighty empire! The greatest that the cosmos has ever known!
The Doctor: Tell me, sir, has this weapon of yours ever brought good to your planet?
Guardian: Once the weapon was built, our race began to decay. The radiation from the weapon's power source poisoned the soil of our planet.
The Doctor: Exactly! The weapon has only brought death - and yet he wants to spread that death throughout the galaxy! Unless you destroy this weapon, sir, he will use it for evil.
The Master: No! You must be mad! Why with this, we could control every galaxy in the cosmos! We could be Gods!
Guardian: You are not fit to be a god. I sense...that if you have control of this weapon, you will bring only unhappiness and destruction to the entire universe.
The Master: Then die!

Davros: Now, future errors will be eradicated. Defeats will become victories. You have changed the future of the universe, Doctor.
The Doctor: I have betrayed the future. Davros, for the last time, consider what you're doing. Stop the development of the Daleks.
Davros: Impossible. It is beyond my control. The workshops are already fully automated to produce the Dalek machines.
The Doctor: It's not the machines, it's the minds of the creatures inside them. Minds that you created. They are totally evil.
Davros: Evil? No. No, I will not accept that. They are conditioned simply to survive. They can survive only by becoming the dominant species. When all other life forms are suppressed, when the Daleks are the supreme rulers of the universe, then you will have peace. Wars will end. They are the power not of evil, but of good.
The Doctor: Davros, if you had created a virus in your laboratory, something contagious and infectious that killed on contact, a virus that would destroy all other forms of life, would you allow its use?
Davros: It is an interesting conjecture.
The Doctor: Would you do it?
Davros: The only living thing, a microscopic organism reigning supreme... A fascinating idea.
The Doctor: But would you do it?
Davros: Yes... Yes...
(raises hand as if holding the metaphorical capsule between thumb and forefingers)
Davros: To hold in my hand a capsule that contains such power, to know that life and death on such a scale was my choice... To know that the tiny pressure of my thumb, enough to break the glass, would end everything... Yes, I would do it! That power would set me up above the gods! AND THROUGH THE DALEKS, I SHALL HAVE THAT POWER!

"The alien who dares to intrude, the humans, animals, birds, fish, reptiles: all life is my enemy! All life shall perish under the reign of Sutekh the Destroyer!"

"It is within my power to choose the manner of your death. I can, if I choose, keep you alive for centuries, wracked by the most excruciating pain. Since your interference has condemned me forever to remain a prisoner in the Eye of Horus, it would be a fitting end. You would make an amusing diversion."

"Shall we decimate them? That sounds good. Nice word, decimate. Remove one tenth of the population."

Rose Tyler: Doctor, what happened?
Davros: Electrical energy, Miss Tyler. Every atom in existence is bound by an electrical field. The reality bomb cancels it out, structure falls apart. That test was focused on the prisoners alone. Full transmission will dissolve every form of matter.
Rose Tyler: The stars are going out...
The Doctor: The 27 planets... they become one vast transmitter, blasting that wavelength...
Davros: Across the entire universe, never stopping, never faltering, never fading. People and planets and stars will become dust. And the dust will become atoms and the atoms will become... nothing. And the wavelength will continue, breaking through the rift at the heart of the Medusa Cascade into every dimension, every parallel, every single corner of creation. THIS is my ultimate victory, Doctor! The destruction of reality ITSELF!

House: "Tell me why I shouldn't just kill you both now."
Amy Pond: "Well, because... Rory, why?"
Rory Williams: "Because... killing us quickly wouldn't be any fun. And you need fun, don't you? That's what Uncle and Auntie were for, wasn't it? Someone to make suffer. I had a PE teacher just like you. You need to be entertained, and killing us quickly... wouldn't be entertainment..."
House: "So entertain me. Run."

The Doctor: Mrs. Gillyflower, you have no idea what you are dealing with. In the wrong hands, that venom could wipe out all life on this planet.
Mrs. Gillyflower: [holds out her hands] Do you know what these are? [laughs] The wrong hands!

Davros: Now he sees it. Now he understands. The cables, Doctor. Touch them. Imagine... to hold in your hand the heartbeat of every Dalek on Skaro. They send me life. Is it beyond the wit of a Time Lord to send them death? A little work and it could be done.
The Doctor: [skeptical] And why would you be telling me this?
Davros: Genocide. In a moment. Such slaughter, not in self-defence, not as a simple act of war. Genocide as a choice. Are you ready, Doctor? So many backs with a single knife. [Davros lifts the Doctor's hand towards the cables.] Are you ready to be a god?
Davros attempting to convince the Twelfth Doctor to commit genocide, Doctor Who, "The Witch's Familiar"

Davros: Regeneration energy. The ancient magic of the Time Lords. I thought I would have to tear you apart to take it from you but, as always, your compassion is your downfall... You have opened your veins of your own free will, and all Daleks shall drink the blood of Gallifrey. They shall rise stronger than ever!

Angela Rance: Get the hell out of my child!
The Salesman: Hell? Do you know what Hell is, Regan? It's where Casey is right now. In a room with no windows, nailed to the floor, surrounded by nothing. Alone forever. Knowing it was her mother who put here there. But don't worry. There's room for you, too.
The Exorcist, "Chapter Eight: The Griefbearers"

"Has anyone ever told you the story of the Mountain and the Hound? Lovely little tale of brotherly love. The Hound was just a pup, six years old maybe. Gregor a few years older, already a big lad, already getting a bit of a reputation. Some lucky boys just born with a talent for violence. One evening, Gregor found his little brother playing with a toy by the fire - Gregor's toy, a wooden knight. Gregor never said a word, he just grabbed his brother by the scruff of his neck and shoved his face into the burning coals. Held him there while the boy screamed, while his face melted. There aren't very many people who know that story."

King Joffrey Baratheon: Robb Stark is dead. (chuckles) And his bitch mother! Write back to Lord Frey. Thank him for his service and command him to send Robb Stark's head. I'm going to serve it to Sansa at my wedding feast.
Lord Varys: Your Grace, Lady Sansa is your aunt, by marriage.
Queen Cersei Lannister: A joke! Joffrey did not mean it.
Joffrey: Yes, I did. I'm going to have it served to Sansa at my wedding feast.
Lord Tyrion Lannister: No. She is no longer yours to torment.
Joffrey: Everyone is mine to torment. You'd do well to remember that, you little monster.

Felicia Martins: So Devereux's settling down? Trying to become the family man? How pathetic.
Mme. Devereux: Go away! You won't find him here. He's in Paris on business.
Felicia: I know. I didn't come for him.
(Mme. Devereux runs, but gets caught by Felicia, who drowns her)
Felicia: He's an impressive fighter, your Monsieur Devereux. By the time I meet him face to face, I want him to have NOTHING to live for. Non.
(Baby starts crying, Felicia turns towards the sound)
Felicia: I'd almost forgotten you, little one.
Highlander, "Free Fall"

"Dear God, I would do anything to see the look on her face when she realizes she's helpless. I'd make her want me. Then reject her. Devastate her over and over and over until she wants to die. No, I won't give her that, either. She'd wither away like someone dying of thirst or starvation. Be a certain ring of hell, designed specially for her. Or maybe I'll just kill her."

"Come here, (Trish). You'd do anything to protect her, wouldn't you? Yeah, perhaps I chose the wrong sister. Hmm? From your perspective, I'll be raping her every day. My skin will be touching hers. She'll be my plaything. She'll be my slave. And in her mind, she'll be dying, isn't that right? We're leaving. If (Trish) or I ever hear from you, or see you, see anyone who looks like you, she will slit her own throat. It's the ultimate contingency."

Abandon your captured family. Give up on the friend who betrayed you. Feel no guilt for the murder of your friend. If you could find the will to be ruthless, then you'd be freed from all your stress in an instant.

Harold Finch: You could never be me, because I save lives. You take them.
Alex Declan: No, I live those lives better than the real people ever could. I follow them, and watch them waste what they have. I do those identities justice. The things I've seen, the lives I've lived... One day, I'll stop, when I find the person I'm meant to be.
Finch: What? People like you don't stop. You can rationalize it however you like, but you hurt people because you like it. Because you're sick, you're maladjusted and you need help.

Master Org: They will be destroyed soon, just like your parents!
Cole: What?
Master Org: That's right. I finished off your parents, and I enjoyed every single minute of it. They begged me for mercy, so I gave it to them. I ended their worthless existence quickly.
Cole: No. How? How could you do something like that?
Master Org: (laughs) It was easy.

"Obadiah, and a blackguardly officer called Morris, once beat a native Indian half to death, until I stopped them. They blamed me for it, and I was flogged. Watch him, Pat. He preys on the men. He'll snaffle kit, belts, frogs, haversacks, all entered or found lost by Obadiah, which leads to floggings unless he gets paid. Then wives. He beats men till their wives come to him, which I call rape. I've seen his like before. An evil man marching in a cloud of pipely. And because he kicks up salutes, obeys every officer, he's bombproof to all but us. We who come up from the ranks, we're smart to him."

I like to make people into things. Then you can own them."

When that scoreboard clock begins counting down from 30, if you haven't given me Derek, then Jackson is gonna kill someone. So tell me, Scott, who's gonna die tonight? Should it be your mother, who so bravely came out to support you? Or the sheriff, your best friend's father? Or how about the pretty little redhead who managed to survive the bite of an Alpha? Or maybe one of these innocent teenagers with their whole life ahead of them? Or should I do everyone a favor and kill that ridiculous coach? It's up to you, Scott. But you are going to help me take Derek down. Because if you don't - I'll have Jackson rip someone's head off right in the middle of the field and drench everyone you love and care about in blood."

The last head falls to the ground
No one is left alive
They thought that they could take me down
But it's not my time to die
I wipe the blood from my sword
And slide it in my belt
This is the sweetest of rewards
The best rush I have felt!

The gods of Amonkhet roared and cursed, but no blow from their weapons would land. The trespasser's power was at least equal to their own. The dragon landed atop the tallest tower, closed his eyes, and began to channel a spell. The time for violent choices had come. The gods felt a surge of mana weave around the dragon as a tangle of malevolence. They grasped desperately for spells to protect and defend. But they were too slow. The dragon opened his eyes and every mortal old enough to walk dissipated into the sky. A brilliant white light engulfed Naktamun, and the seven gods fell to their knees in agony as countless souls vanished from existence.

"It is done. Hear me, Children of Adam. I command-"
The Arch-Usurper's voice chokes off in a gurgle. His body twitches, swells and churns as eyes, mouths, tentacles and other organs erupt from his flesh and sink back in again. Amid all the changes, he laughs a deep, ugly laugh. The characters cannot move; they cannot sense their own bodies in their millionfold view of the world. "Be of me," the Tremere-Thing says, and the characters see the flesh of millions of people ripple and flow in response. Kindred, kine and other, their skin splits apart to release a large, slimy, chitinous creature - part insect, part reptile and all nightmare; characters may recognize it as the Horrid Form of Vicissitude. Some mortals and supernatural part-humans resist the worldwide contagion, but they are a small minority. [...]

Valkia the Bloody, Warhammer

"Konrad von Carstein was completely mad. Even when he had walked among the living, he had the reputation of being a blood-mad butcher, cruel, merciless and insanely ruthless. For his pleasure, he once had ordered every cat in his domain to be used as spot for his crossbowman. On at least two occasions he had peasant villages put to the torch because he didn't like the smell. He tried his mother for the crime of having given birth to him without his consent and then had her bricked up in her own tower. Acquiring the power and longevity of one of the Undead did nothing to strengthen his already shaky gasp on reality."

"If a man dedicates his life to good deeds and the welfare of others, he will die unthanked and unremembered. If he exercises his genius bringing misery and death to billions, his name will echo down through the millennia for a hundred lifetimes. Infamy is always more preferable to ignominy."
Fabius Bile at the Desecration of Kanzuz IX

"To Bile himself, there is only one title that does his magnificence justice – the Primogenitor.
He believes that in him is the Emperor’s boundless artistry reborn. He claims to understand the secrets of creating Space Marines and even Primarchs, and though his creations are extremely strong of body, they are rarely of sound mind. To witness one of Bile’s genetic byblows is to lose a shred of sanity, for they are disturbing indeed. Bile has left a trail of foul deviants and twisted abominations wherever his ships have landed. His name has become a curse to the High Lords of Terra and those of the Apothecarion who have learned of his legend. Many believe that he has irrevocably tainted mankind’s gene pool, polluting it with hidden growth strains and lurking corruptions. Some scattered cults even worship him as Pater Mutatis, father of all the mutants that skulk in the underbelly of the Imperium. It is a belief that Bile does nothing to dissuade."

"I prepared for muggers, killers, thieves. Criminals, increasingly extreme in their methods and personality. But I never imagined someone like "The Joker". There is no information on him in any criminal base. As far as records go, it's as if he stepped out of thin air. He appears to be a highly resourceful psychopath with a sadistic intelligence, who delights in causing chaos, destruction and human suffering. Skilled with explosives and firearms. He displays personality traits consistent with criminal insanity, though his mental instability did not hinder his ability to take over Black Mask's criminal organization. His capacity for wanton destruction makes him a threat to the entire city. He must be stopped."

General McGrath to Jodie Holmes, Beyond: Two Souls

"To tax the black more than the white, is that not cruel? To forbid the mixing of the races, is that not cruel? To give the vote to the white man, and deny it to the yellow, the black, the red — is that not cruel? Hm. But is it not cruel to banish your children from a perfect garden? Or drown your flock under an ocean of water? Cruelty can be instructive, and what is Columbia, if not the schoolhouse of the Lord?"
Zachary Hale Comstock, BioShock Infinite

Father Paul Rawlings: Governor Vicus! We've been sent to release you from this prison! Let us go so that we can complete our mission and end the nightmare for you. For all of you!
Vicus: Release me? Release me!? Why would I want you to do that? We have found Elysium, have we not? Where we can feast and fuck and kill, and find no consequences? We are not prisoners here! This is freedom, absolute! And you my welcome visitors, are sports. Let the game begin!
Governor Cassus Vicus refusing the offer to move on from the purgatory, Clive Barker's Jericho

"You were content to simply rule over space and time, but I'd rather start from scratch. Erase it all. Wipe the slate clean. I'm going to reset the timeline and rebuild it to my liking. I will become a god. Which means YOU won't exist, and neither will those featherbrained masks, or those meddling marsupials! Hahahahaha!"
Dr. Nefarious Tropy revealing his true intentions to Dr. Neo Cortex, Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time.

Ayush: When Sunil told me about his research, I knew. The virus would kill millions and free up the planet for those who managed to survive!
Jack: Do you even know how to stop the plague you unleashed? Do you have any idea for the cure? A backup plan? Anything??
Ayush: The cure? No, why would I? My work is already complete!
Jack: What? You unleashed a virus you didn't even know how to stop?! Just the sight of you makes me sick!
Ayush Patil to Jack Archer about his genocidal plan, Plagued By Death of the Criminal Case series

Faithful, enlightened, ambitious brethren. In but a single decade, a few mere swipes of the pendulum, we have gathered a sacrifice to Khorne that will be made legend.
Though it was a simpler, weaker voice that illuminated me during my centuries upon the Judgement of Carrion, it was Khorne's messenger who showed me the true path of freedom from our pathetic corpse-Emperor.
And what is this path? This meaning, this purpose to which we gather the skulls of our foes?
It is nothing.
There is no meaning, no purpose. We murder, we kill. It is mindless savagery, this universe is mindless!
In mere hours, billions will die: innocent, guilty, strong and weak, honest and deceitful, all of them! They will scream, they will burn, and for no purpose than the mighty Khorne may revel in their bloodshed. And united in this void of purpose, fear or duty, we shall at long last BE FREE! BLOOD! FOR THE BLOOD GOD! SKULLS! FOR THE SKULL THRONE! LET! THE GALAXY! BUUUUURRRNN!!!
Azariah Kyras, Dawn of War II: Retribution

"It must be... magnificent. To hear a planet writhe and scream. To feel it convulse beneath your own feet. Witness it dying with living eyes. Perhaps I may share this gift with every last living soul in the galaxy... Until then..." *Evil Laugh*
Azariah Kyras, Dawn of War II: Retribution

"Marian, don't you understand? We'll create outbreaks anywhere we want to. We can control where it goes. And when we're done, we'll kill the Kings. It'll wipe out the population, but leave all the infrastructure. It'll be like the neutron bomb I always dreamed of."

"Take one last look at your shining Heaven, Imperius. For soon, nothing of it shall remain... but my laughter."
Diablo, Diablo III

"Some of you in a previous life may have held childish notions of God and the kingdom of heaven. This ugly representation of a spiritual nirvana was designed to control you, to placate your natural feelings of hate and rage, to subdue your realization of your place in this universe. By embracing science, you took the first steps towards freedom from these intellectual chains. By dedicating yourself to the development of Argent Energy, you cemented your place in the next age. Now let us tell you about the real heaven. The real kingdom of the gods is a place that you will never reach, and you should never wish to. No human will ever visit the sacred ground of Argent D'Nur, unless they are made a god by the dark lords. Humanity's only purpose, and reward, is to serve the ascension of the Imperatrix and protect the Crucible. You will be destroyed by the demons, while I will be made a god. My immortality is assured, while you will writhe in perpetual agony at the bottom of the darkest hole in Hell. You will be forgotten. Your life, your loved ones, your achievements and failures are nothing. A blank space on the canvas of time. Thank you for your service. May you rot in Hell."
Olivia Pierce, DOOM (2016)

"If you had let the culling continue, the human race you fight to protect would have survived. Now I will resurrect the Icon of Sin. He will devour Earth and leave your home world in ruins."

Justice: Foul sorceress! You will release these poor folk and submit yourself to justice!
Baroness: Justice? Is that what you are calling it? What of their punishment, burning my home to the ground and me within it?
Villager: Because you were stealing our children! Using their blood to feed your vanity!
Baroness: As was my due! You lived on my land, I your rightful ruler! Your blood was mine just as your lives are now!

"Evil... You are pure evil. I hear it in your heart. How do you even survive?"
Reyson, to Lekain, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

"I-It's only now that I understand the depth of the depravity of this...creature - this monster that I unwillingly helped to create. As if what he had already done wasn't enough, he found a new way to desecrate, to humiliate, to destroy. As if the suffering wasn't enough, the loss of innocence, the loss of everything to so many people. Small souls trapped in prisons of my making now set to new purpose and used in ways I never thought imaginable. He lured them all back. Back to a familiar place. Back with familiar tricks. He brought them all together. Are they still...aware? I hope not. It keeps me awake at night. I could make myself...sleep. But not yet. Not until I undo what he has done and heal this wound - a wound first inflicted on me, but then one that I let bleed out to cause all of this. He set some kind of trap. I don't know what it was, but he lead them there again. He overpowered them again. And he robbed them of the only thing that they had. Again. I don't know how those tiny breaths of life came to inhabit those machines. But they will never find rest now. Not like this. I have to call them all back. All of them. Together in one place."

Brainiac: Earth's time is up.
Superman: Where's Kara?
Brainiac: Being vivisected. She has already taught me much about the nature of your powers.
Superman: Allow me to give you a proper demonstration...
Brainiac: I match your strength. You cannot match my intellect. You are only a Kryptonian... of which I have killed billions.

Pit: It wasn't cool of you to disappear earlier. After all, this is our final battle.
Hades: Oh, I was just going to make a quick stop to decimate a country or two.
Pit: In the middle of battle? Why would you do that?
Viridi: Probably so he could fuel up on souls.
Hades: Yes, I was hoping to greet Pitty on top of a mountain of corpses. But I didn't even get a pile started with him hot on my heels. What a killjoy.
Palutena: Your hunger for destruction is as boundless as it is callous, Hades.
Hades and Pit having a conversation about eating souls, Kid Icarus: Uprising

Christopher Mills: He's been laying low in the public agency for 15 years... Rumor has it that he's involved in some kind of organ deals. Organs to be used as raw material for the creation of the Smileys.
Garcian Smith: So he's after children. That's as vile as you gonna get.
Garcian and Christopher on Curtis Blackburn, killer7

"Are those girls alive? I heard them crying. It must have been forced upon them. The poor girls. That man has a glare in his eyes. A sharp, evil glare. It's scary."
Kess BloodySunday describing Curtis Blackburn, killer7

Curtis Blackburn: Time to say your prayers.
Pedro: Forgive me! Forgive me!
Blackburn: What was that? Do I sense regret? Just because you apologized, you think you'll be forgiven? Just like that? Didn't you notice the dead bodies behind you?
Blackburn: Your folks.
Pedro: No. You're lying.
Blackburn: Your wife's name is Pamela, right? And your son, Paul?
Pedro: What have you done to them?
Blackburn: Ah, Pamela sure has a mole in a unique place. You know it kinda turned me on.
Pedro: No. You didn't. You bastard!
Blackburn: Paul, he's such a sissy. He didn't even try to save his mother, what are you teaching your kids?
Pedro: Mary?
Blackburn: You mean your little girl, Mary?
Pedro: Mary, where is she?
Blackburn: Right here (throws Pedro her decapitated head).

Mashtooth: "What? You question me? Listen up! Power is strength. Strength is everything! I'll give you mucus brains one more chance. You mess this up and I'll squeeze you like a puff pastry."
Mashtooth, The Legendary Starfy

"So like that, that thing, being mighty me at the apex of my power? It can't be that way, isn't it To put the power of your attack into perspective... to my iron body, you could inflict damage just ONCE. Now! Crawl out of that hole already and reach my corporal source! Witness my real appearance, the lot of you, as you see hell!"

"I shall soon take my rightful place among the gods! And then the beauty of destruction will rain down upon this world!"

"Simply put, I'm obsessed with the idea of capturing that moment when innocence evolves into corruption. That shift from black, to white, to gray... and beyond. Most models are cynical; they lose that naivete. However, some Blackwell students carry their hope and optimism with them like... an aura. And those lucky few become my models... my subjects."
Mark Jefferson, Life Is Strange

"It was weird to be in class with Jefferson, like I wasn't just tortured by him in an underground bunker. I saw him for the first time as he is: a creepy, manipulative psychopath, filled with bullshit. He uses art and passion to seduce people, but behind that there's nothing but hate and perversion."
Max Caulfield's diary on Mark Jefferson, Life Is Strange

"This is the end! The real end, to everything! This world, this school, deserves to be destroyed! It rejected me! It ridiculed me! So now I'm gonna make this rotten world even more rotten. Rot away. Rot away! ROT! ROT! ROT! ROT! ROT! ROT! So fuck all of you! Your eternal screams of horror will be MY pop music!"

"Now imagine how it would feel to stop a beating heart, to snuff out the spark of life with a thought, to pull the very stars from the sky to crush those who oppose you. That is my destiny, little man. Power beyond your understanding."
Heng Long to Marlow Briggs, Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death

"Humans are like pigs, dependent upon the Reploids for their very existence...You do realize, don't you, that if I felt like it, I could wipe all humans out in the blink of an eye? Crea! Prea!

Shao Kahn: Where are the Elder Gods, Raiden? (Laughs) Their pathetic Mortal Kombat shackles me no longer. (beating up Raiden several times and then throws him) They masquerade as dragons, but are mere *toothless* worms. My venom spreads. It is the end of all things. Armageddon.
Raiden: Stop!
Shao Kahn: (Picks up Raiden) It is done. Your time has passed. (Throws Raiden) Ages wasted in foolish resistance. Now is the dawn of my rule. (Laugh) Yes. Pray to the world. As your world ends.

Nagito Akashi: (after Dr. Seiya Harima accidentally killed Nina Arimura due to the misunderstanding between Sogo Inaba and then ended up getting killed by one of the ghosts in the mansion) I thought I heard an exciting future chapter for my book, but man, I can’t believe this twist!! Arimura’s seriously dead?! Oh man that suucks!!
Detective Sogo Inaba: ...You...
Nagito Akashi: ISN’T SHE LUCKY?! Geez, seriously save me all the effort of killing her!! Imagine the reader’s shock to learn that this poor heroine died from the hands of the people she trusts?! HAHAHAHA!!! IT WRITES ITSELF!!!
Detective Sogo Inaba:...
Nagito Akashi: Ah? Are you suffering inside, Mr. Inaba? Can’t you feel the gut-wrenching churn in your stomach? Don’t worry my friend, you won’t have to feel that way for long! I’m sending you off to meet her! Now she won’t have to be lonely in hell! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Detective Sogo Inaba:...Don’t you dare speak ill of her...
Nagito Akashi: What’s this?! Am I feeling the raw essence of pure, unfiltered resentment coming from you? AHAHAHA! But I’m being so nice to you! You don’t wanna live without your sweet Arimura, do you? You don’t want her to be all alone, right? Come on, I’m offering you a one way ticket to meet her!! Courtesy of this blade!!

It is an embodiment of wicked ambition, utterly devoid of humanity
—Description on John Dee/Hundred Eyes, Nioh

"(The villain we are dealing with is no common criminal. No... I am loath to even call him a human being. Sucking the life from the men and women of this poor town, only to cast them away... This is a veritable demon who walks among us!) One thing is clear—this monster must be stopped before he can commit any more vile deeds. As an academic, I must confess that the history of the dark arts intrigues me. But to put them into practice? This is truly beyond the pale!"
Cyrus, on the Quarrycrest kidnapper, Octopath Traveler

"She was beautiful—there can be no doubt of that. But did I desire her, even for a moment? No. For within that attractive trapping was evil—pure evil, intent on bringing humanity to ruin. If a man dared touch any part of it, his own flesh would rot and fall away. She was a lethal poison. She was a witch."
Werner on Lyblac, Octopath Traveler

"Jeremy Blaire. My supervisor's supervisor, a man who'd see me skinned, salted, and raped for a promotion and a few martinis. Injured. Dying if he's not already dead. I'm trying to feel sorry for him. Really, I am."

"Hahaha!! Hya—hahaha! Behold!! The Earth Dragon will destroy Earth along with Joka!! The axis will shift and people shall die!! I have transformed history!! What is life if you can't even bear this!?"'
Tatsuzuo Sudou, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment

"Hahaha... You don't get it, do you?! It's useless to search for hope or reasons to live in this pathetic world! A world this depraved must be started over from the beginning! And then! At long last! I will rule over the new world! Hahahaha! I... I was so close..."
Shuji Ikutsuki, Persona 3

Futaba Sakura: If he's been behind all of those mental shutdowns... Doesn't that mean all the weird accidents from these past few years were his fault? Like, that subway accident back in April...
Makoto Niijima: Now that you mention it, that accident lost the Minister of Transport his job...
Ann Takamaki: Wait... Are you trying to say that Shido caused that accident? But it's the subway! Does he not care at all about innocent lives!?
Yusuke Kitagawa: This man seems to be truly unbelievable...
Futaba Sakura: Supposedly there are still tons of victims from that in the hospital even now.
Yusuke Kitagawa: Masayoshi Shido... How many has he killed over the years?
Haru Okumura: How could we ever understand what goes on in the mind of such a horrible man...?
The Phantom Thieves on Masayoshi Shido, Persona 5

"Total annihilation of life, What a fine thing! Death to all that lives! Destruction to all that has form! That is indeed my desire!"

"Oh, I truly hope you like our small, but special contributions. When the egg hatches, you'll become my puppets. Involuntarily, you'll do as I say. I'll have total control over your minds. Don't you think this is a revolutionary way to propagate one's faith?"
Osmund Saddler, Resident Evil 4

"I know. I know. I've done ... I've done terrible things. Horrible things. I killed your men. I tortured them. And I enjoyed every second, solider boy."

"It's not just the killing he's into: he's into power. The intimacy of goin' inside, where the heart still pumps; he's into feelin' the skin tighten like a canvas and the warm blood spraying, leaving masterpieces for us to marvel at. And he's gonna go on and on, creating masterpieces, unless I stop him. Because I know what drives him to it. So don't you dare think you understand a killer—or me."
Detective Vince Magnotta on the Ripper (possibly Magnotta himself), Ripper

Jododu Otoku: Little creature, my body sleeps but my mind is awake. This world is my world. It floats in an ocean filled with great stones, and it is only my divine will that keeps them from striking us. Without me, life cannot exist here.
[Bandos ignores the voice. He raises the pike higher for a single, devastating thrust.]
Jododu Otoku: Little creature, you do not know what you are doing. If you kill me, you kill every living thing on this planet. They will all die. You will be alone on this world.
Bandos (smiling): Old god, I know exactly what I am doing. [He strikes.] And there will be other worlds!
Bandos becomes a Physical God and an Omnicidal Maniac with one action, RuneScape

Safalaan: But why not just kill us and be done with it? Why bring us here?
Drakan: Oh, that's simple... where would be the sport in that? Zaros's interference lead us astray. His words twisted my mind, made me want to conform, to be "presentable" and constrained. Vampyres are none of those things. I hunt and I kill and I eat. I do it to live and because I enjoy it. I am a hunter and you are my prey-there is nothing more pure than this.
Player: You're a monster.
Drakan: Yes, but unlike my dear sister, I do not deny this truth-I embrace it!
Lord Lowerniel Drakan, RuneScape

Seren: A war, Sliske, it would wake them. You must know that the elder gods sleep below us and you know what will happen if they wake!
Sliske: Of course I know! Why do you think I've orchestrated all of this? I want them to wake and I want Gielinor to be torn apart in the process!
Seren: But why could you possibly want that? It's madness!
Sliske: Because this world is the lock that holds the rest of the universe together. I've been to countless worlds, but this one is the very keystone of creation. When this world falls, finally the other worlds will wake up and take notice. They'll fall into a free fall against one another. They'll all finally stop being boring. I have lived thousands of years and in that time I have watched everyone just repeat the same cycles again and again. It's as if all sentient life were devoid of creativity. It is so unfathomably tedious. But no one seems to have noticed it but me. They're all so obsessed with their little schemes, unaware that they're locked in a rut. But when war breaks out amongst the gods, without Gielinor, it will span across the whole of creation. Zamorak will unleash his demonic hordes, who will swarm across the worlds tearing them apart. Saradomin will be forced to return to Teragard and bring their twisted science into the conflict, changing the face of the war, quite literally in some cases. Even "peaceful Armadyl" will find himself forced to break his oaths and unleash terrible destruction...again. Doesn't it sound wonderful! No more stagnation. No more tedium. We'll see an end to the gods and the whole universe will be changed by it.

Satan: If you don't [put the gun down], I'll break Jezebel's beautiful neck.
Johnny Gat: She's your daughter!
Satan: I'll say something kind at her funeral.

"Not even a thousand deaths would be fitting punishment for thy sins! I shall smite thee, and in hell I shall torture thee over and over! After an aeon, I shall reincarnate thee, and thy lives shall be those of endless torment, thy bodies tortured in life and thy souls in death! The same shall come to thy children, and thy children's children, throughout all eternity until the end of time! Feel the wrath of my divine lightning, and plummet into the bowels of hell, burning in its unending flames!"

"See, there is no hope here. No, not anymore. We're going to torture her. Ja. And, uh, you're going to watch, Lieutenant."

Luke Carlyle to J. Jonah Jameson, Spider-Man 3

The Sorceress: That's it! I've had enough! I'm going to create a monster to end all monsters! And I'm going to send it out to destroy all the dragons, even the little hatchlings! Yes, yes! It will smash them, and crush them, and grind them, and tear them! Ohoho, yes! Smear them, and smoosh them, and crack them, and crease them!
Bianca: Uh, um, won't that kill them?
The Sorceress: (laughs) That doesn't matter! As long as I can still collect their wings!
Bianca: What?! All this time, you only wanted them for their wings?!
The Sorceress: Of course, you ignorant girl. I need them for a spell, so I can live forever!
Bianca: Uh-uh, wait, wait a second, a s-a spell?!
The Sorceress: What did you think I was going to do with all those dragons; open a zoo?
Bianca: You said just keeping them in our world was enough. You never said you had to kill them!
The Sorceress: I don't have to kill them. It just stops them from wriggling so much.
Bianca: You're terrible! I can't believe I ever listened to you! (walks away)
The Sorceress: Stupid, insolent brat. I'll take care of her as soon as I finish off that dragon.

"I will admit that I take no little pleasure in this task. It will be quite entertaining to make some of those self-righteous humans turn on one another, or push one of those blustering braggarts from Qo'noS until he begs for death. Oh, and the Vulcans... I will make Vulcans weep, and I will savor every tear."
Colonel Hakeev, Star Trek Online

Emperor Palpatine: You are all traitors to the Empire. You will be interrogated. Tortured. You will give me the names of your friends and allies. And then you will die.

Teska: You're more than happy to risk your own lives, but not the lives of others. Pathetic!
Obi-Wan: I shall ask you again: Who are you? What do you want?
Teska: My name is Kul Teska. And what I want, you don't have. But I'll settle for seeing the looks on your faces as your precious Clones die.

The Outlander to Vititate's soldiers about Emperor Vititate, Star Wars: The Old Republic

"Most people find a job so they can live. I lived for my job. Once you've killed a man who was begging for his life, and everyone congratulates you on a job well done, nothing can compare. I used it all: electric chair, the rope, rifles, but gas was my favorite. There's such a purity to it. I always wished they would have kept me busier - my talents were under-utilized."
Hermes T. Haight, The Suffering

"It took hundreds to kill me, but I slaughtered humans by the thousands! Look at me! I am sublime! I AM THE TRUE FACE OF EVIL!!!"

"Hey, remember that time when you trapped me in a painting for all eternity? Good times. But guess what? I GOT OUT! And now I'm painting the town RED! Yes, it was I who broke the Dark Moon! This power-enhancing jeweled crown of mine made it easy. And now that all the ghosts of Evershade Valley are under my control, it's time to take my rightful place as the supreme ruler of your world! You, that annoying scientist, and all your friends will look great hanging on the wall of my throne room!"
King Boo to Luigi, Super Mario Bros.: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

"How beautiful is suffering...Oppression and despair do reveal true beauty!"

"In my talons, I shape clay, crafting life forms as I please. Around me is a burgeoning empire of steel. From my throne room, lines of power careen into the skies of Earth. My whims will become lightning bolts that devastate the mounds of humanity. Out of the chaos, they will run and whimper, praying for me to end their tedious anarchy. I am drunk with this vision. God: the title suits me well."

Zilva: Hm hm hm... 'tis no longer a need to conceal it. Things are just as you envisioned them, Eugene. The one who switched bodies with Doctor Barrs, poisoned Ladras, and made an attempt on your life was moi.
Eugene: So you were the one who deceived Her Majesty! How dare you, Zilva...!!
Zilva: Ha ha ha ha, did that just dawn on you? Manipulating a gullible little brat was mere child's play with you entirely out of the picture.
Zilva: Ha ha ha ha... why don't I have your impending deaths serve as the inception of the new world!

"I have long dreamed of this. I may not have the pleasure of killing Ambrose with my own hand, but sending him your head may be sweeter, still. I forget myself. A queen should not act so basely. Such a threat is beneath me, especially on the eve of my victory. Mirror Lake broke, then Huracan, the horned one, called to Xibalba. And then I brought down the sky. And you failed and failed and failed. But really, in the face of prophecy, what choice did you have? You dabble in Shadow, but you have no idea what it truly means. Shadow bends to reality. And reality bends to my whim. Face me in all my forms, and despair!"
Queen Morganthe Malory gloating to the protagonists about the failed mission and on what she had done, Wizard 101

"General Deathshead... today he's teaching me a lesson. I've seen suffering and death, people maimed and tortured. Thought I'd seen it all, but I'd never seen true cruelty, until now."
Captain Blazkowicz about Wilhelm Strasse, Wolfenstein: The New Order

"Pain... agony... my hatred burns through the cavernous deeps... The world heaves with my torment! Its wretched kingdoms quake beneath my rage! But at last, the whole of Azeroth will break. And all will burn beneath the shadow of my wings!"

"Now all shall bear greatness to my presence. I hold their leaders powerless, and their mightiest city is under my control. Soon I will show this world a war the likes of which has never been seen! I will weed out the weak and inferior so that only the strong survive!"
"Try to relax mutant, as I peel and strip your mind like an onion. Very soon I will have everything I need to rid the world of your kind...Excellent, the extinction of Homosapien Superior, mutants, begins now."

Dunban: Why did you betray us to the Mechonis? Why did you kill our friends at the colony? Why?!
Mumkhar: You wanna know? Because it's your home.
Dunban: You piece of!
Mumkhar: Stay where you are. That thing works by remote, so unless you want me to put a hole in her neck!

Zanza: How unfortunate. I had a desire for friendship. But granting intelligence to the lives I was created was a mistake. A god should not long for friendship!
Shulk: You're wrong! Meyneth chose to live along side us, she grew to consider us our friends. You should have accepted that! But what you were hoping for was not friendship, you wanted worthless slaves, our lives as food.
Zanza: Just as I suspected, it appears I was mistaken to grant free will. However, all will soon be over. The Telethia will exterminate all life on Bionis. I will then create a new world, just as I have done many times before!

"I can talk all right. And I got a good memory. 'Fiora get outta there, get out!' Her screams were music to my ears as my claws slid right through her soft flesh. Like a hot knife through butter!"

"Sakuma was a monster who gained the power of mind control and enjoyed it to the fullest. He only played at being a good doctor. Sakuma once saw me using packing tapes to treat an injury and laughed. 'Not bad,' he said. I didn't know what he meant. Do you remember the second murder? When Takayanagi, the street musician, was killed? Her stomach was cut open and a speaker was put inside. She was mind-controlled into using packing tape to stop the bleeding. When I saw him make her use her packing tape, I asked him why he was making her do that. And this is what he said. 'She's just like you, right? A doll. Isn't that funny?'... He's not normal. They talk about people who get pleasure from killing, but he's not even that. All he cares about is whether or not he finds something entertaining... and it doesn't have to be murder."
Serika Onoe explaining to Takuru Miyashiro the true nature of the latter's adoptive father Wataru Sakuma, Chaos;Child

Makoto: You sacrificed your own sister....How does that not even bother you?!
Junko: What? I sacrificed her? That's what got you so hot under the collar? Jeez, Misunderstandings sure are scary! We were The Ultimate Despair, You know? So we never had any kind of hope, or expectations. No, I've felt despair as long I could remember, like I never should have been born at all. When I was born, I cried tears of total despair. So that's why for us, it's not a big deal whether we die or kill! We're just those kinds of people. We can do anything!
Aoi: So you just murdered your own sister, and didn't think anything of it?
Junko: ("Sad" Junko) That's not true at all... We were twins. How could I not be sad? That's why it gets excited. Its like super super super super super super despair. No, more than that. It just
Byakyua: I knew you couldn't be some ordinary person. You're some kind of.... abnormality.
Kyoko: Turning your own despair into some kind of fetish... abnormality doesn't even begin to describe it.
Junko: ("Monokuma" Junko) All i want is despair. And there's no reason for it. And since there's no reason, there's no argument against it. There's just no understanding it. What better definition of the ultimate despair could there be?!

"To show the world the murders taking placing at this school, which was meant to be a symbol of hope... That was the whole point of the Ultimate Despair! When I said "climax," THAT was what I was talking about! The world watched as you fell into despair, and began to kill each other one after another... Despair is as contagious as any disease; any hope left turns to despair. Puhuhu. Isn't the power of television just amazing!?"

Higanbana: You're going to call that boy who you treated so horribly as your plaything a "stupid kid"?
Nafumi: Yes I will. He was a stupid kid. He should have been a doll. A doll that only I could look at and only I could play with.
Higanbana: You are the epitome of selfishness. He showed his affection for you and sacrificed his body for your desires until he couldn't take it anymore... and you're not even the least bit sorry?
Nafumi: Ufufufu. UFUFUFUFU! Of course I'm not! I'm the queen bee!! The other bees show their affection to me and I will enjoy their honey! I AM the queen of this art room! It should be an honor to serve me! Those who don't feel honored are fools who need to know their place!!! Am I sorry for Yuuki-kun? Not even in the slightest!

Three years prior, when I met Morgana, she had been the victim of unspeakable abuse at the hands of the lord. I didn't know why he had done those things to her, and I didn't ask either—because I knew doing so would only open old wounds. All I knew was that the lord was so far gone as a human being as to brutally torture a nine-year-old girl.
Jacopo, about Lord Jean-François Barnier, The House in Fata Morgana

Ceren: Is the lord really that bad of a guy?
Morgana: Oh, right... you haven't been here very long. You don't know what he's like. Yes, he is a terrible man. He oppresses his people and rejects the word of God. He is a cruel, heartless, barbaric madman. He deserves the strictest of judgements.
—about Lord Jean-François Barnier, The House in Fata Morgana: A Requiem For Innocence

"I would have rather she died with less suffering... A bullet in her brain, perhaps, would have been ideal. Unfortunately, that would have made quite a bit of noise. Circumstances being what they were, I was forced to settle for the knife. The one the 9th Man had, you remember? I believe I caught her just below the shoulder blade. I was rather lucky, in fact. My first thrust went right between her ribs. Her flesh was so soft. My knife slid in so easily... There was no resistance. That feeling was... I confess, I feel rather excited. It is a... powerful memory. Someday, perhaps, I hope I can feel it again."
Gentarou Hongou recalling his murder of Clover, Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors

"I already have the data I needed after I adapted to the weapon's blast. However, I've also discovered that your magic gun is a source of tremendous power. If I harness that power, I could annihilate organic life in every universe, every parallel! Leaving only the machines."
Mechakara, Atop the Fourth Wall

"Because I can. Because I will it. Because I hate. What sin is it to destroy those beneath me? What mistake is it to torture those who deserve what comes to them?"

"Your sister held a great power within her, something I had never seen prior. It required the prolonged presence of agony within her to properly awaken it...and I can tell you that her screams were lovely sounds to my ears. I drew out her suffering. It was fun causing you and your family misery."
Lucia, to Alessa Hopper, The City of Never

"I have no doubt in my mind that the Man in the Mask was somewhat mentally deranged, but he did hold one good position. I have spent my years researching and investigating the process in which monsters make their ways into human lives. It was my own doctoral thesis. But perhaps I had missed something. I had spent all this time proving that monsters could turn into men, perhaps I had overlooked how men could turn into monsters."
Dr. Michael Margin, after his encounter with the Man in the Mask. Dr Margin's Guide to New Monsters: The Man in the Mask

"Nyarlathotep. My name shall be on all lips in the world. It will be the final, manic thought all that lives shall ever know. The cry of my name shall harken the end of sanity, the advent of madness. It will be a new age, Daemon, as everything you know shall end... And I will hear you scream my name into an uncaring void as all you love is taken from you, your mind flayed bare offered before my master's court. When the only ears that can hear to care about your pain are mine."
Nyarlathotep, Nights In Lonesome Arkham

Rich Jacobs was beyond reason or conscience. Essential elements that made up a human being had never been part of him.

"I'm going to walk past you now. I'm going to go into that house. I'm going to complete the Necronomicon, and than I'm going to rip that human's mind apart and take back what's mine now. When you see what happens next? Oh, I'm going to tear it all apart, upend this world, reap the souls of everyone you ever loved, everyone you ever helped, every single mortal who's ever met your eyes and smiled. Everyone who ever knew you will be my plaything for all time. I'm going to call Azathoth down on your reality and do a repeat performance of what I just showed you. Now, if you'll excuse me, there's an apocalypse I need to kick start. But don't worry. You're going to get an amazing front row seat to the festivities."
Nyarlathotep to Hardestadt Delac, Nights In Lonesome Arkham

"I'll hurt them, Erin. I'll grab ten at random and tear their skin off. This is paradise compared to what I've done in other worlds...Ten, then a hundred, then a thousand. The children alone are in very, very high numbers. I'll peel them like fresh little grapes and make you hear every scream."

Felix: God, I just really want to savor this. You know, once the feds and rebels kill each other, I don't know what I'm gonna do. I mean, we've been playing these guys for years. How do you just walk away from something like that?
Tucker: What happened to retirement?
Felix: Oh, well, yeah I'll be filthy rich. But I'm still in my prime. There's so much more I could do.

"You still don't get it, do you? The entire reason you sim troopers were allowed to live this long? It's because you're all losers. Control was confident that you'd do more damage to these people than they could ever do to themselves... Locus and I figure we let you rack up the casualty count, then kill you after a few weeks. But then, you did something special. You gave these people hope. And with that, came a new level of motivation. To fight harder, to die faster. All with the belief that their sacrifice might actually mean something. But you know what, it all means nothing! At the end of the day, if I'm stronger than you, and if I'm faster than you, then I can kill you. And that's better than anything money can buy."

"Today we face the greatest threat our country has ever faced: the threat of Communism. In his quest to dominate the world Joseph Stalin has taken measures that were too evil for even the Nazis. He has unleashed poison gas and hydrogen bombs, which make the bomb we dropped on Hiroshima seem like a child’s toy. He holds the people of Eastern Europe, China, and Southeast Asia in his iron fist. And he has launched another Final Solution against the Jews. To those who say we can peacefully coexist with such a monster I say: never forget! Never forget that the minute we let our guard down the Soviets will pounce, destroying everything we hold dear."

Eon: We're partners! I deserve to be in on every detail of your plan! Especially when it involves a bomb!
Vilgax: Not just any bomb! A Chronosapien Time-Bomb!
Eon: So you're going to wipe out this Ben 10 and his timeline? Nice.
Vilgax: On the contrary, the detonation won't even touch this timeline. It's designed to wipe out other timelines.
Eon: Which one?
Vilgax: All of them.
(Bomb is activated)
Vilgax: (laughs) Only this timeline will remain intact, while every Ben Tennyson not from this timeline will be destroyed.
Eon: But I'm an alternate Ben Tennyson not from this timeline! What..what happens to me?

I am power unlike any you have ever known: absolute, infinite, and unrelenting. You have no choice but to prepare as a long dark future as my subjects and my slaves."

"Had I known one human's death would pain you so, I would have killed more. And kill more I shall. Carry that agony with you to oblivion, Superman."

Wraith: (after showing a simulation of the Shaoden fleet destroying the moon — and the ensuing catastrophe) Of course, you understand, these are only modest projections, but since a prolonged conflict with Earth would needlessly diminish our resources, this tactic will nicely thin out humanity's ranks to ensure absolute compliance with our colonization.
Logan: Rinaker, you coward!
Chauf: Do not give that Shadoen scum the satisfation, Logan.
Wraith: Ah, yes... satisfaction. And what, indeed, would be more gratifying than seeing the ever-insubordinate Nick Logan for once pay the consequences of his rash actions? Your destruction of my EMP trump card now forces me to turn over some real estate in a more flamboyant fashion. I do, however... regret the severe loss of human breeding stock that will incur. Ah, well. Such is war.

"Would you look at that. Righteous fool, after everything he still can't hurt an innocent. Turning those little brats into weapons, pretty ingenious, right? Heh heh.

Meltdown: My goal is quite simple, really. After our last encounter, I reasoned, if a machine could change form, why not a human?
Fanzone: Let me get this straight. You wanna create a transforming human?
Meltdown: Exactly! A person capable of taking on any shape or form at will! Sadly my experiments, they have been somewhat less than successful. The one to the left, he used to be my lawyer. Luckily, I soon realized my error: adult test subjects! What I needed was a human who was still growing!
Prowl: Sari.

Fanzone: "Poetic" is not exactly the word that comes to mind. You are one seriously twisted fruitcake!
Meltdown: Flattery will get you nowhere, Captain. (unleashes his experiments on the duo) In a few hours, I will administer a formula that will turn young Sari into a shape-changing wonder, or if things go wrong, into one of them. (closes the door to prevent escape, then leaves)
