“It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this!” is an image macro series that takes a famous quote from the original Legend of Zelda juxtaposed with an object in a hand.
Derivatives usually consist of text placed under the picture of either a cute animal, an object which is useless in real life, or an actual usable weapon.
The phrase was first coined in 1986 by the old man in NES action adventure game, The Legend of Zelda.
The first image macro came from a picture of a meowing kitten in a hand with the original in game text placed underneath. The jpeg file contained an embedded rar that would infect computers with a suite of trolling programs. The image and concept became known as “Dangerous Kitten”.
Dangerous Kitten’s inception and creator remains unknown but according to records, general interest search began to mount in December 2006. The availability of “Dangerous Kitten” lives on with torrents of the latest version 3.0 utilizing more viruses and spyware than the original.
Soon after its initial wave of popularity, “Dangerous Kitten” found its way to meme blogs like I Can Has Cheezburger and a t-shirt form. “Dangerous Kitten” became associated with the LOLcats movement and lead to new renditions involving other animals, weapons, and useless IRL objects. According to Macrochan, “It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this!” has spawned 54 variations.
