Button bearing the text "All your base are belong to us."


Mistranslation of Japanese 基地は、全てCATSがいただいた (literally we (CATS) have taken all of your bases). This grammatically incorrect "Engrish" phrase originated in the English subtitles of the 1991 European Sega Mega Drive version of the 1989 Japanese arcade game Zero Wing and became a catchphrase/meme on the Internet in the early 2000s.


all your base are belong to us

  1. (Internet slang, humorous) Used to tout victory over an opponent, or simply as a humorous catchphrase.
