About

If We're Gonna Date You May Have to Defeat My Seven Evil Exes or If You Want to Be My Boyfriend, You Have to Defeat My Seven Evil Exes refers to a series of exploitable memes, including image macros, based on a line of dialogue from the 2010 movie Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World using the phrasal template "If you want to X you have to Y." Memes using the phrasing have appeared online as early as November 2021 and were further popularized on X (Twitter) in November 2023 following the release of the anime series Scott Pilgrim Takes Off.

Origin

In the 2010 film Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, Ramona Flowers tells Scott Pilgrim that if he wants to date her, he may need to defeat her seven evil exes (shown below).



While the first known use of the meme is unconfirmed, the earliest known viral example of the meme was posted on November 23rd, 2021 by X[1] user @ItsChloeNow, sharing an image of Ramona Flowers talking to Scott Pilgrim, captioned, “if we’re gonna date, you may need to defeat my 70,000 twitter followers," garnering over 26,600 likes in two years (shown below).
