 The Major: My friends, it has often been said that I like war.

My friends, I like war. No.

Friends, I LOVE WAR!

 I love holocausts. I love blitzkriegs. I love defensive lines. I love sieges. Charges. I love mop-up operations and retreats.

Wars across prairies, in streets, in trenches, in grasslands, in frozen tundras, through deserts, on the sea, in the air. I love every act of war that can occur upon this earth!

 I love blasting the enemy to smithereens with artillery salvos that thunder across the lines of battle.

My heart leaps with joy whenever a soldier is tossed high into the air and cut to pieces by well placed sniper rounds!

And there is nothing like a tank operator using a Tiger Acht-Acht (88) to destroy enemy tanks.

And the feeling that comes when a soldier runs screaming from his blazing tank only to be mowed down by heavy machine gun fire is such an exquisite feeling.

 Like when ranks of infantry brandish their bayonets rushing into the enemy line.

It moves me deep within my heart to watch a fresh recruit stabbing over and over into the bloated chest of a long-dead enemy.

 The sight of deserters being strung up from a street lamp is an irresistible pleasure.

And there is nothing more arousing than the sounds made by prisoners of war dropping like flies, screaming in agony as they're mowed down by ear piercing schmeissers!

 When a band of pitiful resistance fighters makes their final stand with nothing but small arms, only to have their city smashed to atoms block by block by 4.8 ton bombshells, I'm in ecstasy.

 I love it when my forces are ravaged by a Russian armored division. It's so sad to see towns and villages that were supposed to be defended at all costs, being laid to waste, their women and children being raped, and killed.

I love to be squashed under the heel of the British and American war machines. The humiliation as my men crawl around like vermin, ducking the JAG bombers flying overhead.

 Gentlemen... all I ask for is war. A war so grand as to make Hell itself tremble.

Gentlemen, I ask you as fellow brothers in arms, what is it 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!?

  Letzes Battalion: Krieg! Krieg! Krieg, krieg, krieg, krieg, krieg, krieg!"

 The Major: Very well. Then krieg is what you shall have.

We are a clenched fist, ready to strike down all who oppose us with our might.

But..after enduring over half a century wallowing in the darkness, for us a simple "ordinary" war will no longer be sufficient.

We need a MASSIVE war! A war beyond any other that man's history has never known!

 We are but a single battalion.. The remnants of a defeated army numbering less than a thousand strong.

However, I believe that each of you old warriors is equal to a thousand of their sickly soft children!

We represent a force that could easily defeat an army of a million and one men!

It is time for them to awake the ones who sent us screaming into oblivion, and who now lie sleeping.

Let's drag them out of bed by the hair, and remind them of what we are!

 We will remind them of what it feels like to live in fear.

We will remind them of the sound our jackboots make against their throats.

We will remind them that there are more things between Heaven and Hell than are dreamt of in their philosophy.

 Our Kampfgruppe of one thousand vampires is going to burn this world down to ash.

Yes, my friends! Soon, Europe's charred remains will illuminate the night sky!

I have brought you all back just as I promised I would. Back to our favorite battlefield. Back to our beloved war!

At last, the sea lion has crossed the ocean and is heading up the hill!

 Attention soldiers of the Millennium battalion, this is a message from your commander.


Let's bring them Hell.

Born in New Zealand in '64,

a hot-headed actor named Russell Crowe.

He loves to act, but he loves one thing more:

Fightin' round the world!

He fights his directors and he fights his fans,

it's a problem no one understands.

If there's two things he loves, it's fighting and

Fightin' round the world!

Making movies and making music and

Fighting round the world!

Russell Crowe!
Fighting Round the World, South Park
There is no meaning in this world. I seek naught but blood and carnage.
Tsukuyomi, Mahou Sensei Negima
You seek to get rid of the nightmares? They never go away Snake. Once you have been on the battlefield, tasted the thrills, the exhilaration, the tension... It all becomes part of you. Once you've awakened the warrior within it never sleeps again. You crave ever bigger tensions, ever bigger thrills. As a mercenary I think that you would have realized all of this by now Snake. People like you and I we care nothing for power, money, or even sex... only WAR!"
—Big Boss, from the Metal Gear Solid series.
Smell that? You smell that? Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end...

General Omar N. Bradley: There's one big difference between you and me, George. I do this job because I've been trained to do it. You do it because you LOVE it.

George S. Patton: I love it. God help me, I love it. I love it more than my life.

I'm a soldier of fortune, I'm a dog o' war

And I don't give a damn what the killing is for
Dire Straits, Ride Across the River
War is my profession, war is my obsession, there's nothing I like better than a violent intercession! Blood must be spilled, deep enough to swim in, as I hear the lamentations of my conquered foe's women! WAR! It's good for me! What's my name? THUNDERCLESE!!!
Thunderclese, The Brak Show, during the Rap Episode
'Kill when you can kill.' That's bullshit. All I wanna do is fight someone better than me.
Travis Touchdown, No More Heroes
What's wrong with me? There's something wrong with you! How can you be so strong and not love fighting?! Revel in it... the death and the pain!! Those are the rewards of battle!!!
Kenpachi Zaraki, Bleach
I am power made flesh. Feel how weak you truly are!
Akuma, Street Fighter
(sung)I looove hurtin' people! I looove beatin' people up!

Knight of One: Are you really here just to buff your reputation?

The Vampire of Brittania: No. I'm here to take an uncommon pleasure in destruction!

I seek his destruction and domination. I don't care about anything else. I'm only interested in how much I can dance in the pit of Hell when it's all over...see you there one day.
Balalaika, Black Lagoon
He carried on the war not for the sake of personal gain or power nor through anger, but for the sake of warlike deeds in themselves; hence he was accounted at once a lover of war and a master of war.
Cassius Dio on Viriathus
There's something rather comforting about facing death like this, wouldn't you agree? It's all I can think about. Rank. Personal history, and birth. Race. Sex. The name given to's all meaningless. This is the only thing that's real. To fight on behalf of my own life and nothing more.
Wrath (bleeding to death and useless to the Big Bad's plans), Fullmetal Alchemist
And they sang as they slew, and the sound of their singing which was fair and terrible came even to the city.
...the most fun you can have with your pants on.
—American fighter pilot's description of combat, from "The Culture of War" by Martin van Crevald.
44. I will only employ bounty hunters who work for money. Those who work for the pleasure of the hunt tend to do dumb things like even the odds to give the other guy a sporting chance.
"His is the fury of the wildfire, the boiling blood of the volcano. He fights you not because you've wronged him, but because you're there."
—Flavor Text from the Magic the Gathering card Blood Knight (the Trope Namer)
Because I like weapons. Each one is unique, with its own little quirks and flaws. Each one of them- mace, axe, sword, spear- have their own special manner of wreaking bloody havoc. And for someone who thrives off slaughter like I do, that is the beauty of the well-stocked arsenal.
I don't fight for good, and I don't fight for evil. I just fight!
Augus, Asura's Wrath
Relax son. Enjoy every moment. You fight, and eat good food. You fight, and drink fine wine. You fight, and sleep with beautiful women. Hell, fight with Beautiful women! That's what it means to live.
Augus again
"I don't recall joining your group. And I don't care what you plan to do. All I want is to fight someone strong. Is there someone like that right now?"
Tsuchi-Gumo, Nurarihyon no Mago
"All I want is to fight... until even my marrow turns into dust."

Maxim: Come on hyu keeds! Hyu gots to fight like hyu means it!

Oggie: (sweeping triple poleaxe) Lots ov monster for evryvun! Voo hoo!

Jäger General Gkika: My boyz tell me dere's more trouble on de vay-- und Hy haven't seen any decent trouble in ages. Dis iz gonna be fun.

"Boyz": Grarrr!
What do you think a knight is for, girl? You think it's all taking favors from ladies and looking fine in a gold plate? Knights are for killing. I killed my first man at twelve. I've lost count of how many I've killed since then. High lords with old names, fat rich men dressed in velvet, knights puffed up like bladders with their honors, yes, and women and children, too--they're all meat, and I'm the butcher. Let them have their lands and their gods and their gold. Let them have their sers.
Sandor Clegane, A Song of Ice and Fire

Full moon's light is calling me

My kingdom lies within

The mystic soul and lion's heart

Brought by the talisman.

The ecstasy of battle takes me

Where the falcons fly.

Immortal youth was granted me

I will never die.
—Black Wind, Fire, and Steel, Manowar

Spike: When was the last time you unleashed it? All-out fight in a mob, back against the wall, nothing but fists and fangs? Don't you ever get tired of fights you know you're going to win?

Angelus: No. A real kill, a good kill - it takes pure artistry. Without that, we're just animals.

Spike: Poofter.

Citizen V: This fight is completely unnecessary.

Deadpool: BLASPHEMY! All fights are necessary!

Sandor: Brave? A dog doesn't need courage to chase off rats.

Sansa: Does it give you joy to scare people?

Sandor: No, it gives me joy to kill people. Spare me. You can't tell me that Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell never killed a man.

Sansa: It was his duty. He never liked it.

Sandor: Is that what he told you? He lied. Killing is the sweetest thing there is.

Wrex: What's taking so long, Shepard?


Wrex: I know! You get to have all the fun!

Warhammer 40000

The perfect weapon does not need its master's will to drive it to further carnage. The perfect warrior does not need a reason to kill, does not need a cause to follow. The perfect commander does not heed such petty distinctions as victory and defeat. Kill, for killing's sake. Destroy, for destruction's sake.
Kargos Bloodspitter, Champion of Khorne
'Attack' is the only order worth remembering.
Kharn the Betrayer
Victory? What use is victory? Let me have a battle of annihilation.
Fleet Commissar Drussos
