The Evil Gloating

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 has 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 for unknowingly helping/aiding them.



  • Ladd Russo: He goes on a brief monologue about how stupid it is when people indulge typical Evil Gloating, which he is both thoroughly aware of and rather amused by.

Animated Film

  • 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. 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.
    • After successfully disposing Snow White with the poisoned apple, the Queen cackles madly and gloats over finally becoming fairest in the land.
  • Syndrome: gets pretty wise about gloating when Mr. Incredible nearly tricks him into gloating and tries to throw a log at him. However, this later leads to his downfall, as he vows to get Mr. Incredible's baby son Jack-Jack someday, only for Mr. Incredible to throw his car at him, causing Syndrome to get his cape caught in the turbines, killing him in a huge explosion.
  • Ratigan: gloating about how he led Basil right into his trap, sending him into a depression and then describing his overly complex Death Trap which includes a recording of Ratigan gloating through song.
  • Jenner: cannot resist spilling the beans when Justin correctly deduces that he purposefully killed Nicodemus, which Jenner doesn't even attempt to deny.
  • Thrax: After infecting Frank with a deadly fever, Thrax attacks 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, dissolving him once and for all.
  • Scar: When Simba, still blaming himself for his father's death, is dangling from the edge of a cliff, Scar can't resist indulging in this and freely admits to Simba that HE killed Mufasa. At this revelation, Simba leaps at Scar and literally chokes his wicked uncle to get him to admit the truth to everyone else.
  • Ruber: Whilst trying to kill an injured Arthur with Excalibur - that is fused to his arm - and openly gloats the death of Sir Lionel which Kayley overheard and angrily stops Ruber by knocking him through the window with a large wooden beam.
  • Gaston: He fights the Beast on the castle roof, attempting to kill him and gloating to have Belle for himself, only for the Beast to overpower him at the last minute and when he sees fear in his eyes, he spares his life and orders him to leave.
  • Douche: After shoving himself up Darren's butt and strangling Frank, Douche takes a bite out of the sausage's torso and declares himself a God.

Live Action Film

  • Agatha Trunchbull: boasting how superior she feels as headmistress of the school--considers herself a God in fact.

Western Animation

  • Dr. Drakken just can't quit gloating in Kim Possible's face, no matter how many times his Genre Savvy assistant Shego warns him about it. Of course, the otherwise Dangerously Genre Savvy Shego lost when she was Evil Overlord because she gloated herself, by pressing Ron Stoppable's Berserk Button.


I, Flintheart Glomgold, will be the filthiest, richest duck in the world!
~ Flintheart Glomgold gloating about becoming the richest duck.
(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...(After hearing this, 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) 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 show many 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 wickedly.) 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, where we see that 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 fifteen minutes late. And I do have an important engagement at...Buckingham Palace. (Dawson raises his eyebrow, not understanding Ratigan's plan) 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 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! 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!'

I GOT HER! I GOT HER! DID YOU SEE THAT?! Perfect SHOT! PER-FECT SHOT!! She's mine! ALL MINE!!! (cackles evilly)
~ 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 falsie) 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 his claw is stuck on the false eyelash) (Ozzy: YOU are!) What? NO!!!! (Thrax tries pulling his claw out of the falsie, but it's no good. Ozzy escapes just as the falsie falls out of Shane's eye and into 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.
This isn't the end of it! I will get your son eventually! I will get your son!
~ 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 [charging]: 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!"
~ one of F.A.N.G's gloats over his poison powers during the battle.
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 is swinging Excalibur at Arthur, but misses) 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: (whispers) 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, but Arthur dodges out of the way) Say hello to your new king! (He grabs hold of Arthur without mercy) (King Arthur: (gritting 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: (from the scaffolding) Hey, Ruber!) (Ruber turns around) You! (Kayley: I will not serve a false king!) (Ruber growls in fury, and Kayley swings down from the scaffolding with a wooden beam and strikes Ruber with it, sending him out through the window.)
~ Ruber gloating his murder of Sir Lionel to Arthur, only for Kayley to stop him.
(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--showing Patch at the Thunderbolt audition--in front of the terrified puppy, then lifts him off the floor to show him the 98 caged dalmatian puppies.) If it wasn't for you, 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 Ratcliffe's new address on his collar from the headline photo on today's newspaper allowed her to know where Anita and Roger moved to and steal the puppies once again.
