Teh Meme Wiki

The scene where the meme originated.

It's over 9000! is a popular internet meme originating from the popular anime "Dragon Ball Z".


In the original Japanese version, Vegeta's line was "It's over 9000!". This was changed in the dub to match Vegeta's lip movement during this bit of dialogue. The translation was actually wrong and vegeta said it's over 8000 in the original! Over 9000 was only referenced in a badge for teh meme wiki users. The meme originally became popular in 2006. The meme originated from the episode "The Return Of Goku."
