"There was this boy I sent to the Electric Chair in Huntsville here a while back. My arrest and my testimony. He killed a fourteen-year-old girl. Papers said it was a crime of passion, but he told me there wasn't any passion to it. Told me that he'd been planning to kill somebody for about as long as he could remember. Said that if they turned him out he'd do it again. Said he knew he was going to hell. Be there in about fifteen minutes. I don't know what to make of that. I surely don't."—Sheriff Ed Tom Bell, No Country for Old Men (film)
"It is hard for me to make sense on any given level. Myself is fabricated, an aberration. I am a noncontingent human being. My personality is sketchy and unformed, my heartlessness goes deep and is persistent. My conscience, my pity, my hopes disappeared a long time ago (probably at Harvard) if they ever did exist. There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it, I have now surpassed."—Patrick Bateman, American Psycho

DIE FOR DARKSEID!"—Darkseid, Final Crisis

He is not a psychopath! He is an iceman. He is a monster.—Thomas Krasny, Jagged Edge
"Is it inappropriate to refer to him as a monster? No, not at all. What kind of person stays alive for hundreds of years with the express intention of wiping out a rival's family line? Imagine the hatred fueling that first decision to replace his mortal body with soulless machinery."
"I met [Michael Myers] fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no conscience, no understanding; even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, good or evil, right or wrong. I met this six-year-old child, with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes... the Devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... evil."—Dr. Loomis, Halloween

"We can't stop them. We don't know where they come from. We don't know what they want. They don't even seem to want territory. All they do is kill.

And I tell you this, my friend, that there are people (men and women both, unfortunately) who have no good in them--none. That there are people whom it is necessary to detest without compromise.

Matt: [hesitates] Do you believe in the Devil, Father?
Father Lantom: [looks away] You mean... as a concept?
Matt: No. Do you believe he exists? In this world, among us.
Father Lantom: You want the short answer or the long one?
Matt: Just the truth.
[Matt sits facing away from the table, elbow casually on its edge.]
Father Lantom: When I was in seminary... I was more studious than pious, more... skeptical... than most of my peers. I had this notion, which I was more than willing to speak about, at length, to whoever I could corner, that the Devil... was inconsequential. Minor figure in the grand scheme.
Matt: Not very Catholic of you.
Father Lantom: Uh-huh, yeah. In my defense, in the scriptures, the Hebrew word, "Satan", actually means "adversary". It's applied to any antagonist. Angels and humans; serpents and kings. Medieval theologians reinterpreted those passages to be about a single, monstrous enemy. And, in my youthful zeal, I, certain I knew why: propaganda. Played up to drive people into the church.
Matt: So you don't believe he exists.
Father Lantom: [gives him a look] Am I done talking?
Father Lantom: Years later, I was in Rwanda, trying to help local churches provide aid and sanctuary to refugees. I'd become close with the village elder -- Gahiji. He and his family had the respect of everybody, Hutu and Tutsi alike... he'd help them all -- through famines, disease. [eyes lose focus, remembering] The militia liked to force Hutu villagers to murder their neighbors. With machetes. But nobody would raise a hand against Gahiji. They said, "Well... how can we kill such a holy man?" So, the militia commander sent soldiers, with orders to cut his head off -- in front of the entire village. Gahiji didn't try to put up a fight. Just asked for a chance to say goodbye to his family. By the time he was done, even the soldiers didn't wanna kill him. So they went to their commander and asked permission to shoot him! At least give him a quick death.
Father Lantom: The commander wanted to meet this man, who had won the respect of so many. He went to Gahiji, talked with him in his hut, for many hours. Then he dragged him out in front of his village and hacked him to pieces -- along with his entire family. In that man who took Gahiji's life... I saw the Devil.
—Daredevil, "Speak of the Devil"
"Snipe has a point. It really makes sense that you and I have a lot in common. You really want to change the fate of the whole world. You saw too much of Brave, Snipe, Genm, and even myself! You're really expecting us to see you as twisted reflections of ourselves. Unlike you, I never took a life from the day I was even born! All I cared about is a fair fight with Emu. Plain and simple. You can harm Emu whatever you want, but you... the way you murdered Graphite, once you crossed that line on me, you should have realized the consequences! But, to me. You're just a petty, spineless coward who whines about his nihilistic bullshit to say that you alone see yourself as a messiah. You killed Graphite, the only one who's dear to me and the closest thing to my brother. Then, you did the same thing to Cronus when you stabbed him in the back. Now that has come to this, I will NEVER... EVER... forgive you for everything you've done!"
"Atone you say? Don't lecture me with such rubbish! All of you don't even understand the result of the war caused by the three nations! It is all of you humanity are responsible for all of this!

(cue Kaguya's Villain Exit Stage Left)
"I am a god! You will kneel before me--or I will crush you into the ground! What hope do you have possibly have now? This is my world. Here, the outcome is even more certain. As they ever have, your five 'friends' will fail you."—Lord Drakkon, BOOM! Studios' Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: Shattered Grid Finale Issue #1
