"I Herd U Liek Mudkips" is a catchphrase that became popular through its frequent usage on 4chan in the mid-2000s. Variations on the spelling and the addition of β€œso” to the beginning of the phrase can also be found. Although its meanings are obscure, the phrase is commonly used as an identifier amongst 4chan users outside of the imageboard community, similar to the usage of "The Narwhal Bacons at Midnight" on Reddit.


Mudkip[24] is a blue and orange water-type Pokemon character who first appeared in the Ruby and Sapphire games, released in the US in March 2003.[25] The phrase "so i herd you like mudkips" originated in early 2005 with the deviantArt group MudKipClub.[1] The account was founded on October 5th, 2004 as a place for users to share Pokemon fanart. The club was not limited to Mudkips, however, as the first artwork[3] depicted the character's final evolution, Swampert. The owner of the community began posting the phrase "so i herd you like mudkips" on other users' comment walls as early as February 7th, 2005.[2] While the motive behind the comments are unclear, the wall messages served as an invitation to join the MudKipClub community.

Throughout 2005 and 2006, a copypasta story about a boy dressed as Ash Ketchum humping a plush mudkip toy began circulating 4chan.[11] The copypasta story was reposted in 2007 on 4chan[4], deviantArt Forums[12] Playstation Universe Forums[5] and My Confined Space.[6] In 2008, it was spotted on the Naruto Forums[7], eBaum’s World Forum[8], and NeoGAF Forums.[9] The story was eventually added to the Copypasta Archive in February 2010.[10]

File 1130798121 ipg-(22 KB, 128x150, mud jpg) β–‘SOON TO BE A XENON MOTION PICTURE Anonymous 10/31/05(Mon) 17:35 No. 3212044 Today being Halloween, I decided to f--- with the major retard at school when I came out of science for break. He was dressed as Ash. Knowing this was going to happen, I brought a Mudkips doll. Thus I started the conversation, making sure no one saw me "So I heard you like Mudkips…” β€œMUDKIPS? 1 LUε…€ε…€ε…€ε…€ε…€ε…€ε…€ε…€ε…€ε…€ε…€JVE MUDKIPS." β€œO RLY? So, would you ever f--- a Mudkips, that is." (he cuts me offbefore I could said β€˜ifyou were a mud aps) "OF COURSE" "Well I just happen to have a Mudkips here, and. .” Before I finished the sentence, which would have resulted in me hitting him across the face with the dol, he grabbed it. In one swift motion his pants were down and he was violently humping it. Not to get between a man and his Mudkips I started to walk away, because there is no way I' d be caught wresting a half-naked crazy guy humping a Mudkips Needless to say, within 5 to 10 seconds, some girls saw him and started screaming. I cooly walked into a restroom, pretending nothing had ever happened, not that I had intended that outcome, but now that it was in play I didn't want to be involved. Anonymous 1031/05Mon)1735 No.3212045 I came back out two minutes later, and like any wanton act on school grounds there was now a huge crowd around him He was still f------ it and baying this real f----- up EEEEEEEEEEINNNNF probably did somethng stupid. sound Suddenly a scuffle broke out in the middle, meaning he I asked someone what had happened. A girlfriend of one of the football players tried to get him to stop, but he bit her for trying to take it away Someone called in a few football players (all dressed up like Road Warrior) who proceeded to pummel the s--- out of the guy Meanwhile the school police were freaking out and having trouble getting in to the situation. A few minutes later the intruder alarm went off and we were all shuffled into classrooms. Over the intercom the principal announced that someone had thrown a flaming plush toy into the library. Uh what the hell So we were kept there and about 30 minutes later the principal came on agan. This time he was saying that whoever was behind the beating should turn themselves in. All of a sudden this woman began yelling, "I WILL SUE YOU FOR DAMAGES YOU LITTLE PUNKS, TM GONNA SUE." and it was cut off I asked an office later what had happened Apparently his mother had come to pick him up and threatened to sue for the beating and whatever else happened. The school threatened to counter-sue because of lewd conduct, nciting a riot, and starting a fight So I ask you: do you like Mudkips?


By the end of 2005, a variation of the phrase was used as a nonsequitur comment on Fark.[17]Several YTMNDs[26] with the phrase were also created throughout 2006, with the first[27] appearing on January 21st, 2006. β€œMudkip” was first added to Urban Dictionary[14] on January 11th, 2007. Variations on the word included β€œMudkip”[15]and β€œMudkipz”[16] were also added that year. As the phrase continued to spread across different sites, other creative misspellings of the phrase emerged with β€œlike” misspelled as "liek" and β€œmudkips” spelled with a z. In 2008, during the Project Chanology protests, many Anonymous protestors used mudkips on their signage[22] or asked other people if they liked mudkips[23] as a way of identifying each other.

Mudkips have many Facebook fan pages, but the two largest[18][19] have over 34,000 likes combined. It is also listed in Shii's Internet Quotations dictionary[20] and there are over 10,000 results for "mudkips"[21] on deviantArt.

Search for variations upon the phrase peaked in April 2008, do to a deviantArt April Fool's Day prank[13] where all user avatars were changed into Mudkips. "Mudkipz" with a Z overtook the traditional pluralized spelling in February 2009.
