Ghandi don’t take no shit.

Accurate.

So, this may just be an urban legend, but I’m told that, yes, Ghandi is really agressive in the Civ series… But it’s a nod to a programming error in the first Civilization.
Somewhere in the code of the first Civ game, each AI leader had an “aggressiveness” score. Good old peaceful Ghandi’s aggression score was set to 1.
When any nation discovered diplomacy, everyone nation’s leader had their aggressiveness dropped by 2, to reflect that in the real world, leaders that are elected actually had to listen to the people or they’d be thrown out of power.
So, Ghandi’s score is dropped to -1. However, in computers, if a variable is stored as a ‘signed’ variable, they can’e be negative, and a value of -1 is instead treated as the maximum value for that variable. So, in Ghandi’s case, his aggressiveness was now set to 255. Meaning he is now the biggest warmonger in the history of everything.
And he would eff you up.
So, because of the sheer comedy of a warmongering Ghandi, any Ghandi since has been programmed to be SUPER aggressive in war. If you’re in a peaceful agreement with him, fine, but the moment you declare war, he will devour you. God help you if he has nukes, because his probability for dropping them is 140%. Yes, over 100% because some events in the game will lower the chance of using nukes.
So, to quote the movie this gif was taken from: “No more Mr. Passive Resistance… This is one bad mother, you don’t want to mess with.”
