"I become more powerful with each passing moment. Ah-Ha! Technically, every moment leaves you weaker than the next, so at every present moment, you're weaker than you'll ever be for the rest of your life! The time to strike is now!"
― Red Mage and Sarda (8-Bit Theater)

It has a tendency to strengthen explosively, it’s power that grows infinitely. Copy skills, you say? That explains why are you copied Lucifer’s alter ego. Well, I’d like to see you try. Although, I would have grown stronger by then."
― Mephistopheles (Soul Cartel)
