"Do you like hurting other people?"
― Richard (Hotline Miami)
"Plenty of murder to go around."
― Grayson Hunt (Bulletstorm)
"Man, this guy is violent."
― The Underwater Temple's High Priest on Yami Sukehiro (Black Clover)
"Completely silent, a violent creature despite looking like a geography teacher."
― Gordon Freeman Saved My Life!
" Imagine one day your home is suddenly attacked by monsters. They swagger into your village like it belongs to them. They kill your friends, they kill your family, they loot your home. Imagine that they assault your sister. They torture her, they rape her, they kill her. They desecrate the bodies of your family, do whatever they want, cackling all the while. And you see it all from where you're hidden, trying not to breathe. How could you ever let that go? So you get a weapon, you train yourself, you learn, you grow. Everything you do is to help you take revenge. You search them out, hunt them down, you fight, you attack, and you kill them and kill them and kill them and kill them. Sometimes things go well, and sometimes they don't. But each time you ask — how will I kill them next time? What's the best way to kill them? Day after day, month after month, that is all you think about. When you get a chance, of course you test every idea you have. And when you've been doing all that long enough....You start to enjoy it."
― Goblin Slayer to Guild Girl (Goblin Slayer)
"When you have enough EXP, your LOVE increases. LOVE, too, is an acronym. It stands for "Level of Violence." A way of measuring someone's capacity to hurt. The more you kill, the easier it becomes to distance yourself. The more you distance yourself, the less you will hurt. The more easily you can bring yourself to hurt others."
― Sans (Undertale)
