I'm Wing Gaster, the Royal Scientist is a quote from the 2016 Undertale fan game Undertale: Battle Mode spoken by W.D. Gaster, referred to as "Wing Gaster" in the game, before the player battles him, with the player pushing Gaster down a hole after the battle. The game was released in November 2016 and became notably popular over the following years despite criticisms towards its quality, with the "royal scientist" scene and quote becoming the subject of memes.

On June 28th, 2019, YouTuber[2] Merg posted a playthrough of the game where, at the 12:21 mark, they encounter the fight with W.D. Gaster. Gaster introduces himself, saying, "I'm Wing Gaster!
