We all know some villains like a good speech either to motivate their underlings or to install an impression of fear or other feeling onto other characters etc.

So what are your favorite villain speeches/monologues?

Here are a few of mine to get things started.

"I am alpha and omega, the beginning and the end. I am that which is, which was, and is yet to come... and you will know my name is Megatron when I lay my vengeance upon you!"

Megatron

Darkseid has some really great ones I can't think of right now.

Well, I have always enjoyed almost all of Apocalypse's speeches in the X-Men 90s TAS. They were very powerful.

I also found Bane's speech in The Dark Knight Rises to be interesting and important because the fact that he was "feeding people hope to poison their souls" is relevant to what some dictators have done throughout human history. So, I guess that was meant to be a historical critique.

This guy is just pure insanity. He doesn't care about life, or death; victory, or defeat. He just wants war.

Game designers pay heed, THIS is how you do a villain's speech.

Darkseid's got some boss ones. At the moment, I like a few from the end of Legacy

"I told you once, Superman, if you would not be my knight, you would be my pawn."
"I am many things, Kal-El. You couldn't begin to imagine half of them, but for now, I will take the role of an executioner."
"A final gift, my wayward son: a fast death. Infinitely preferable to returning to Earth. There your legacy would be one of fear and distrust, desperately chasing the favour of a world that cursed your name."
"I am many things, Kal-El, but here, I am god."

And of course, from Avengers, EMH, I give you Graviton:

No! You wanted me to create a super soldier, but I've become so much more. I'm beyond human now! I'm going to crush you, then show the world their new master's power. Destroying the city will be a good demonstration! Goodbye Fury!

That's an awesome speech as well.

I think we can all agree on this one.

Cartoonish, but epic...

@mrdecepticonleader: Isn't it funny how your avatar pay homage to that cover?
