A common taunt made by the villain to the hero.
"We're not so different, you and I..."
A staple of the villainous monologue; often in a climactic showdown between the hero and villain, the villain will take a moment to point out the similarities between her/himself and the hero. This is often used as a kind of mental sparring, meant to tear down the hero's faith in their own causes. It can also be seen as a way for the villain to justify their own actions to themselves and others, by claiming that they are no different from anyone else; they just act on their base impulses rather than suppressing them.
Frequently accompanied by the villain asking the hero to join them.
This can also be an observation made by the hero, or between two people irregardless of good/evil roles.
