A collection of quotes of the space warlord Thanos.


The Avengers

Spoken about Thanos

"The Tesseract has awakened. It is on a little world, a Human world. They would wield its power, but our ally knows its workings as they never will. He is ready to lead, and our force, our Chitauri, will follow. The world will be his, the universe will be yours. And the humans, what can they do, but burn?"
The Other to Thanos[src]
"You will have your war, Asgardian. If you fail, if the Tesseract is kept from us, there will be no realm, no barren moon, no crevice where he can't find you. You think you know pain? He will make you long for something as sweet as pain."
The Other describing Thanos' wrath[src]
"Humans. They are not the cowering wretches we were promised. They stand. They are unruly, and therefore cannot be ruled. To challenge them is to court...Death."
The Other telling Thanos of Loki's failure[src]

Guardians of the Galaxy

Spoken about Thanos

"Master, you cannot! Thanos is the most powerful being in the universe!"
"Not anymore."
Korath and Ronan.[src]


"I only ask that you take this matter seriously."
"The only matter I do not take seriously, boy, is you. Your politics bore me. Your demeanor is that of a pouty child. And apparently, you alienated my favorite daughter, Gamora. I shall honor our agreement, Kree, if you bring me the Orb. But return to me again empty handed... And I will bathe the starways in your blood."
Ronan the Accuser and Thanos[src]
"BOY! I would reconsider your current course!"
"YOU CALL ME "BOY"?! I will unfurl one thousand years of Kree justice on Xandar AND BURN IT TO ITS CORE!! Then, Thanos, I'm coming for you!"
―Thanos and Ronan the Accuser[src]

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Spoken by Thanos

"Fine. I'll do it myself."
―Thanos retrieves the Infinity Gauntlet[src]

Avengers: Infinity War

Spoken by Thanos

"In time, you will know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right, yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives."
"Fun isn't something one considers when balancing the universe. But this... does put a smile on my face."
"When I'm done, half of humanity will still exist. Perfectly balanced, as all things should be. I hope they remember you."
"You're strong. But I could snap my fingers, and you'd all cease to exist."
"The end is near."

Spoken about Thanos

"Death follows him like a shadow."
"The entire time I knew him, he only ever had one goal: To wipe out half the universe. If he gets all the Infinity Stones... he can do it with the snap of his fingers. Just like that."
"Tell me his name again."
Gamora and Tony Stark[src]
