About

I Am No Borb refers to a comic where the character Meta Knight from Kirby is addressed as such, leading to fans adopting the nickname for the character. The comic was later turned into an exploitable.

Origin

On February 4th, 2015, comic artist KC Green published a comic on the website USGamer[1] as part of the webcomic Video Game Cheats 'n Beatums, where the character King Dedede attempts to teach Kirby swear words. Meta Knight then appears to dissuade Dedede from teaching Kirby such words, but then Dedede decides to teach Kirby another bad word, this time aimed at Meta Knight, calling him "Borb." After Meta Knight denies him being called the word, the comic ends with Kirby going around pasting paper signs of Meta Knight with the word on top all over Dream Land.
