Evil Gloating

In this classroom, in this school, I AM GOD!!!
~ Headmistress/Principal Agatha Trunchbull's famous (gloating) catchphrase.

Villains love gloating about their plans. It is what villains do. Maybe they "set up us the bomb" and are calling to rub it in and take credit, perhaps he/she just snatched the MacGuffin from the hero's very hands and insist on staying just out of reach to taunt. Maybe the evildoer finally has the hero/heroine at his/her mercy and just has to taunt him/her one last time before shooting him/her.

A villain gloats about:

  • His/her imminent/successful victory in our heroes' faces.
  • His/her advancements.
  • His/her infamous powers that made them formidable foes for the heroes.
  • Thanking the hero/heroine for unknowingly helping/aiding them.

  • Queen Grimhilde:
    • As she prepares the poison apple, the Queen gloats about her inevitable victory, when she suddenly realizes that there may be an antidote.

(Scar forces Simba off the edge of Pride Rock.) Now, this looks familiar. Hmm... Where have I seen this before? Hm, let me think... Oh! Yes, I remember! This is just the way your father looked before he died. (Scar pierces Simba's paws with his razor-sharp claws and pulls him closely. ) And here's MY little secret: (whispers) I killed Mufasa...(Flashback to Mufasa plummeting to his doom and cub Simba watching in horror) (Young Simba: NOOOO!) (Back to the present as Simba leaps onto his uncle with fire in his eyes.) (Simba: NOOOOooooo! MURDERER!) (The lionesses look up in shock.) No, Simba, please! (Simba: Tell them the truth!) Truth? But truth is in the eye of the beholdlgkk--- (Simba clamps his paw around Scar's throat.) All right. (gags) All right. (faintly) I did it. (Simba [firmly]: So they can hear you!) I KILLED MUFASA!!
~ Forcing Simba off the cliff, Scar finally admits to Simba that HE killed Mufasa. At this revelation, Simba furiously leaps at Scar and literally chokes his wicked uncle to get him to admit the truth to everyone else.
Bravo! Bravo! A marvelous performance. (Chuckles) Though, frankly, I expected you 15 minutes earlier. Trouble with the chemistry set, old boy? (Basil: Ratigan, no one can have a higher opinion of you than I have...and I think you're a slimy, contemptible sewer rat!) (Ratigan calmly closes his watch) Oh, by the way, Basil, I just love your disguise! (rips Basil's fake mustache off his face) Really, one would hardly recognize you. (laughs) The greatest... (laughs even harder)...detective...in all Mousedom! (laughs uproariously) (Basil [enraged]: Ratigan, so help me, I'LL SEE YOU BEHIND BARS YET!!) You fool! Isn't it clear to you?! The superior mind has triumphed! I'VE WON! (laughs maniacally) (Ratigan's goons laugh along and taunt Basil, who falls into a deep depression) Oh, I love it! HAHA! Oh, I love it!.. (Later, Ratigan has his goons tie Basil and Dawson to a mouse trap) You don't know what a delightful dilemma it was, trying to decide on the most appropriate method for your demise. Oh, I had so many ingenious ideas I didn't know which to choose. So, I decided... to use them all. (camera zooms out to reveal various weapons aimed at the mousetrap) Marvelous, isn't it? Oh, ho. But here, let me show you how it works. Picture this. First, a sprightly tune I've recorded especially for you. As the song plays, the cord tightens. And when the song ends, the metal ball is released, rolling along its merry way until... (gestures to mousetrap) Snap! (gestures to gun) Boom! (gestures to crossbow) Twang! (gestures to axe) Thunk! (gestures to anvil) SPLAT! And so ends the short, undistinguished career of Basil of Baker Street. (Dr. David Q. Dawson: You're... despicable!) Heeehee! Yes! (Fidget runs up to Ratigan, dressed as a royal guard.) Everything's ready, Fidget? (Fidget: All set, Boss!) (Ratigan peeks inside a large white box with a pink ribbon, and he chuckles maliciously.) Oh, this is wicked! So delightfully wicked! (Several thugs, dressed in British Guard uniforms as well, move the package as Ratigan walks over to Hiram Flaversham, who's bound by ropes, standing by Olivia's bottle, she's safe and sound...for now.) Mr. Flaversham, let me congratulate you on a superb piece of craftsmanship. See what you can do with the proper motivation? (cackles) (More of Ratigan's thugs, all dressed in the uniforms, climb onto Felicia's back.) You all know the plan. (Thugs: Right, Professor!) (Felicia meows as she walks out.) It was my fond hope to stay and witness your final scene, but you were 15 minutes late. And I do have an important engagement at... Buckingham Palace. (Dawson raises his eyebrow.) Now, you will remember to smile for the camera, won't you? Say "cheese." (Dr. David Q. Dawson: You fiend!) Sorry, chubby. You should have chosen your friends more carefully. (Ratigan walks over to the record player and turns it on. The song plays with Ratigan's voice singing) ♫Goodbye so soon\ And isn't this a crime? \ We know by now that time knows how to fly \ So here's goodbye so soon\ You'll find your separate way\ With time so short I'll say so long\ And go\ So soon\ Goodbye♫ (Ratigan takes off on his blimp) Adieu, auf wiedersehen, arrivederci, farewell! (chuckles) Bye, bye, Basil!
~ Ratigan gloating about how he led Basil right into his trap, sending him into a depression. Then he explains his complex overkill death trap to Basil and Dawson before leaving them to die as he goes out carry on with his evil plan.
(Randall pushes Sulley to the doors edge, leaving Sulley hanging for dear life!) Look at everybody's favorite scarer now, you stupid, pathetic waste! (Randall stomps on Sulley's fingers, leaving him only dangling by one hand. Boo cowers in fear) You've been #1 for too long, Sullivan! Now your time is up! And don't worry, I'll take good care of the kid!
~ Randall Boggs gloating at Sulley as he dangles from the edge of the door preparing to send him falling, before Boo stops him.
In this classroom, in this school, I AM GOD!'

~ Percival McLeach sadistically gloating as he finally captures Marahute.
(Justin: It was you! You did it! You killed Nicodemus! That was no accident!) Yes, I killed him! He wanted to destroy everything! I've learned this much: Take what you can, when you can! (Justin: Then you've learned NOTHING!)
~ Justin correctly deducing that Jenner purposely killed Nicodemus, which Jenner does not even attempt to deny.
(Thrax attacks Ozzy on Shane's false eyelash) Can you feel the heat, Jones? (cackles evilly) Too bad you won't be here to see me break my record when I take down Frank's pretty little girl! (Ozzy: She ain't goin' down!) Huh? (Thrax notices Ozzy sucked in his torso, leaving the virus' claw stuck on the false eyelash.) (Ozzy: YOU are!) What? (Thrax tries pulling his claw out of the falsie, to no avail. Ozzy separates himself to escape, leaving Thrax still stuck in the falsie.) NO!!! (As Thrax still vainly tries to free himself, Ozzy grabs onto one of Shane's real lashes, just as the falsie comes loose and falls, taking Thrax with it. It lands a bottle of rubbing alcohol which dissolves Thrax, destroying him once and for all.)
~ Thrax attacking Ozzy on Shane's falsie, threatening to kill her next, only to realize too late that his claw is stuck on the falsie which falls out of Shane's eye and sends Thrax into a bottle of rubbing alcohol, where he dissolves into nothingness.
This isn't the end of it! I will get your son eventually! I will get your son! (he laughs maniacally, but then he sees Bob's car hurling towards him) Oh, no.
~ Syndrome's Evil Gloat seconds before his demise.
Well, this is a pity. What will you do now, bowman? You are forsaken! No help will come! Is that your child? You cannot save him from the fire! He will BURN!
~ Smaug taunting Bard and Bain as he burns Laketown.
Hiding, are we?! Good! (Jane: Clayton, you rat!) (Clayton savagely knocks Jane aside with the butt of his rifle, then turns his attention back to Tarzan) I could use a challenge, because after I get rid of you, rounding up your little ape family WILL BE ALL TOO EASY!!''
~ Clayton gloating as he follows Tarzan up the trees to kill him.
"Can't move, can you? My venom acts faster than an electric shock!"

I am king! I will have order! I will have perfection! I will have--
~ Lord Farquaad gloating as he declares himself king, seconds before he is devoured by Dragon.
And therefore, as such, in light of that revelation, I'll say that one is enough, and since that one is of course myself, I want you all to shut up. You're boring. Swallow those words and take them to the afterlife yourself if you want them delivered there so damn much.
~ Ladd Russo about typical evil gloating.
(The Queen/Hag is preparing the Poisoned Apple.) Dip the apple in the brew. Let the seeping death seep through! (Picks the apple out of the brew and it drips with green slime forming a skull) Look! On the skin! The symbol of what lies within! Now, turn red to tempt Snow White to make her hunger for a bite! (The apple turns bright red. The Witch cackles then turns to her pet raven) Here, have a bite? (The raven flaps wildly trying to escape; the Witch cackles) Hahaha! It's not for you, it's for Snow White! When she breaks the tender peel, to taste the apple in my hand, her breath will still, her blood congeal. Then I'LL be fairest in the land! (cackles, then suddenly pauses) But wait!....There MAY be an antidote. Nothing must be overlooked! (Looks through her books) Oh, here it is! (reads from the book) "The Victim of the Sleeping Death can be revived only by Love's First Kiss." "Love's First Kiss..." (slams book shut) BAH! No fear of that. The Dwarfs will think she's dead! She'll be BURIED ALIVE! (cackles; then prepares to leave with the red poisoned apple in a basket of other apples; the raven watches her leave) BURIED ALIVE! (cackles and leaves the laboratory through a trap door on the floor)
~ The Queen/Witch preparing the poisoned apple. She gloats about her inevitable victory, when she suddenly realizes that there may be an antidote. She finds the antidote, but too overconfident to accept it, she dismisses it, and assumes the Dwarfs will bury Snow White alive. She then leaves to put her plan into place.
(Kuzco: Okay, I admit it, maybe I wasn't as nice as I should've been. But, Yzma, do you really wanna KILL me?!) Just think of it as... you're being let go. That your life's going in a different direction. That your body is part of a permanent outplacement! (Kronk: Hey, that's kinda like what he said to you when you got fired.) I know. It's called a "cruel irony"--like my dependence on you.
~ Yzma gloating her true motives to Kuzco.
(Ruber repeatedly swings Excalibur--fused to his hand--at Arthur) I'm going to have more fun of getting rid of you than when I got rid of Sir Lionel! (Kayley soon heard this, clenching her fists in anger and climbs up the scaffolding) (King Arthur: [groaning] I may not survive...) (Garrett: Kayley, no!) (King Arthur: ...but you'll never destroy the ideals of Camelot!) Well, I've got to start somewhere. (he swings Excalibur at him again, but Arthur dodges out of the way) Say hello to your new king! (He grabs Arthur by the collar) (King Arthur: [grits his teeth] You're no king!) You're right. Perhaps I'm...more of A GOD! (Ruber lifts Arthur in the air and hurls him across the table.) (Kayley: Hey, Ruber!) (Ruber turns around) You! (Kayley: I will not serve a false king!)

(Patch and Thunderbolt break into the warehouse, where Horace and Jasper are staring at their painting.) (Jasper: Sorta looks like ya, except you don't have that much hair.) (Thunderbolt barks loudly.) (Lucky: It's Patch! And he brought Thunderbolt!) (Penny: He'll save us!) (Horace: Hey, now, where'd you come from?) (Jasper: Get outta here, ya stupid mutt!) (Jasper tosses a paintbrush at Thunderbolt, who ducks and it splatters the canvas behind him.) (Patch: Maybe they didn't hear you.) (Thunderbolt: Don't worry, kid. This'll be take two!) (Thunderbolt barks louder and more fiercely and Jasper and Horace shriek in alarm.) (Thunderbolt: Ah, that's more like it!) (The Baduns actually screamed because Cruella De Vil is standing right behind Thunderbolt, holding a paint can. She whacks Thunderbolt on the head with the paint can, and the German Shepherd falls to the floor unconscious. Patch runs up to Thunderbolt's aid, only to be caught by Cruella.) Ah, what have we here? Oh, it's you! (chuckles) I owe you a debt of gratitude, my photogenic little friend. (Cruella slides the newspaper with her foot towards Patch--showing him at the Thunderbolt audition.) If it wasn't for you...(she lifts him off the floor to show him the 98 caged dalmatian puppies.)...I'd have never found all brothers and sisters! And now, I have you all! (cackles evilly)
~ Cruella De Vil sadistically thanking Patch, as reading the new address on his collar from the headline photo on today's newspaper allowed her to know where the Ratcliffes moved to and steal the puppies once again.
(The Junior Deputy wakes up handcuffed to a bed in Dutch's bunker.) (Radio: Attention. Attention. This is the Emergency Broadcast System. Take shelter immediately. Take shelter immediately. This is not a drill. Repeat. This is not a drill.) (The Deputy sees Joseph Seed with his back to them, and Dutch's dead body on the floor.) You know what this means? It means the politicians have been silenced. It means the corporations have been erased. It means the world has been cleansed by God's righteous fire... But most of all... It means I was right. The Collapse has come. The world as we know it... is over. I waited so long... I waited so long for the prophecy that God whispered in my ear to be fulfilled. I prepared my family for this moment. And you took them from me. I should kill you for what you've done... But you're all I have left now. You're my family. And when the world is ready to be born anew, we will step into the light. I am your Father, and you are my child. And together, we will march to Eden's Gate...
~ Joseph Seed revels in his vindication after the Collapse begins in the "Resist" ending.

(Goro kicks him back onto the ground) Goro: I would have killed your people ages ago, (Goro grabs Kotal by his neck) but Shao Kahn stayed my hand. He believed you might prove useful in kombat. How wrong he was! (Kotal struggles from Goro's hands.) Go on, struggle. Die with dignity, just like your father!
~ Goro mocks Kotal, telling him to struggle and die with dignity like his father did.

(Wolf chases Jason to a rooftop. He lunges and tackles Jason, causing Mr. Funnybones to go flying into the air. The plush chimp doll lands right between them. In slow motion, they both leap for it and simultaneously grab the stuffed monkey by the opposite arms. Wolf snarls) Let go of the monkey. (Jason Shepherd: Call my dad.) Never. (Jason Shepherd: Yes!) NO!!! (swipes Mr. Funnybones from Jason) That's it, kid! It's over! You lose, and I win! (Jason Shepherd: I don't think so, Wolf.) Oh, you don't think so? C'mon, Jason, you're smarter than that. You write a story, I steal it, and now, I'm about to start shooting the greatest movie of my career! (Jason Shepherd: So you admit you stole my story?!) Look, we've been over this. It's ancient history. Yeah, I stole your story! Whoop-de-doodle-doo! Ya happy now? I STOLE JASON SHEPHERD'S PAPER AND TURNED IT INTO BIG FAT LIAR!!! You know who's listening, pal? No one. And they never will. So, for the last time, give it up, because I will never ever ever--like never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever--infinity--tell the truth! (blows raspberry) (Jason Shepherd: Because the truth's overrated, right?!) That's right!! (Suddenly director yells out:) (Dusty Wong: AND CUT!) (Wolf turns and sees multiple cameras who have recorded his confession. Dusty the director rises from the chair.) (Dusty Wong: I told you, Wolf. The only way to shoot this scene is from 12 different camera angles, with birds flying around. By the by, Confucius say, "Kastang! You're busted!" Rock and Roll, baby!) (Wolf runs to the edge of the building to see the whole film crew and press below him) (Jocelyn Davis: It's just like you wanted, Wolf. The press is all here!) (Wolf looks at his former assistant Monty Kirkham, ex-chauffer Frank Jackson, Kaylee, and Jason's parents Harry and Carol, along with his boss and CEO Marcus Duncan, who is outraged by his plagiarism and Wolf nervously bites his lip) (Marcus Duncan: You stole the idea for this movie from a 13-year-old boy?) He's uh...he's 14. (Marcus Duncan: This is the end of the line, Wolf! It's over!)(Wolf growls and turns back to Jason) (Jason Shepherd: Wolf, I wanna say thanks. You taught me a valuable lesson. The truth...it's not overrated.) (Wolf laughs sarcastically, then becomes enraged.) I am gonna GET YOU, SHEPHERD!!! (Wolf chases Jason, who jumps off the building. He lands safely on a stunt cushion, where his parents embrace him.) (Harry Shepherd: You did all of this just to prove you weren't lying?) (Jason Shepherd: I wanted to earn your trust back, Dad.) (Harry Shepherd: Hey, you earned it, buddy. You earned it.) (Jason and Harry hug together while Wolf still stands on the top of the building) Hey! We got a movie to shoot. Huh? C'mon! Let's make some magic! The human hit factory is ready to roll! (Harry Shepherd: Let's go home.) (The crowd begins to leave.) Hey, where do you think you're goin'? YOU CANNOT TURN YOUR BACKS ON ME! I'M MARTY WOLF! All right, fine! Fine! YOU'RE ALL FIRED! (Guy from Crowd: You suck, Marty!)
~ Marty Wolf gloating to Jason Shepherd on how he'll never confess the truth of Jason's story--the same speech that exposed Wolf's true colors to the public, and sending his career right down the drain.
