Weapon Of Miaows Destruction

Dexter has been weaponised
To borrow a John-ism: oh my goodness! You’re either about to hate me forever, or laugh and offer to buy me a cupcake. Whatever the hell Nyan cat is, it’s clearly a meme of terrifying scope. The original video’s been viewed 46 million times, and now it’s been snuck into Unreal 3 as a mod for the Redeemer. Just look.


I know, you must have it, right? Who wouldn’t want to destroy a Dark Walker with a flying, rainbow cat? Here‘s where you can grab it.

    Must… resist… slow… news… *RESISTED*

    This is either the most horrible thing or entirely wonderful. I don’t know. I’m going to choose to hate you forever and buy you a cupcake.

  3. Faceless says:

    I came here to groan and bash for actually writing about this rubbish meme.

    I stayed for the surprisingly amusing video.

  4. Cinnamon says:

    When I were a young lad we all had to make do with goatse and like it. None of this fancy foreign “nyan cat” muck.

  5. Taverius says:

    Almost makes me want to play UT3 again :D

    Like someone said in the YT comments, I wish I had this mod for BF3 – for the rockets :D

      I think you’re looking for this:

      So I got the gist of the ‘meme’ in three seconds and left the rest of the video with an unearned view count. Without knowing about this meme, the Battlefield 3 clip is fucking excellent. You basically get wrapped up in 18 seconds of horribly realistic Battlefield tension and then… the perfect level of nonsense.

      I don’t know why anyone would watch the original video right through.

    Argh! Nyan song…embedded…in….brain…..

  7. LennyLeonardo says:

    Worth risking a brain tumour just for the disclaimers at the end.

  8. Shooop says:

    The quarantine has failed. Heaven help us.

  9. The Tupper says:

    Stab it. Now.

  10. msarge says:

    Posting this video on my blog slowed traffic down significantly. Beware.

  11. Maldomel says:

    Ohhh, Nyan Cat, is there somewhere you won’t show up? I love this meme, but I fear seeing it everywhere will be boring very soon.

  12. caddyB says:

    Buying UT3 so I can have this.

  13. Jams O'Donnell says:

    That is ingenious. Hats off.

  14. Beelzebud says:

    What’s sad is that this is probably the most attention UT3 ever got!

    I choose to kill you with a cupcake!

  15. Phantoon says:

    Dark Walker? John Walker’s evil twin?

    • BathroomCitizen says:

      Nah, I think that the one you’re looking for is just Nega-Walker.

  16. MaXimillion says:

    Nyan Cat is also a courier skin in HoN

    Awsome pun Craig.

  19. LuNatic says:

    And here I was hoping for a game where you run around throwing kittens at each others faces. One day…

  20. Dana says:

    I swear I saw this news already on this site.

  21. OJSlaughter says:

    This is the greatest mod ever!

  22. Sirnizz says:

    *Re-install UT3 and downloading this right nyaow !

  23. thessalian_pine says:

    And now there’s finally a reason to go out and buy UT3.

  26. Rhynri says:

    But the real question is, when you give it a case of premature detonation, does it say “De-nyied!” ?

  27. Saiko Kila says:

    I’ve never heard about that cat thing before, so now I’m glad I haven’t skipped that… news.

  28. Syra says:

    I hate to go all hipster on you (Nah I don’t) but this thing has been around for months
