"All Your Base Are Belong to Us" (1998 - 2001)

What it isEdit

The most popuolar engrish used in e-mail signatures, forum postings, still images, and flash animations set to music.

The quote, "All Your Base Are Belong to Us." is photoshopped in various images, mostly advertisings and posters, that later got adapted into a popular Flash animation.

As many have said, every time you think AYBABTU is dead, it crops up again--whether as a clever quote from a hipster writer, a gamer's war cry, or someone discovering it for the first time.


The phrase comes from a poor English translation in the European-English version of the Japanese video game Zero Wing.
