I Am One in A Krillion is a catchphrase and viral video of a scene from Happy Feet 2 in which a krill denies that he looks the same as the other krill, saying, "There's only one of me in all the world.

One of the krill, Bill, asks if another krill is named Will, to which he answers "of course, can't you tell?" Bill says they all look the same and Will refutes this, saying, "Not me, Bill. There's only one of me in all the world. I am one in a krillion," "krillion" being a portmanteau of "krill" and "million." The video gained over 1.7 million views in 12 years (shown below).
