Strongest Soldier vs. Sinner, also known as We're Gonna Kill You, is an object-labeling meme format based on a SpongeBob SquarePants frame of Squidward mocking a child captioned with the phrase "we're gonna kill you." In the format, Squidward and the child are labeled "Me (X's Strongest Soldier)" and "Y (Sinner)," with the format often used to mock stans beginning in early 2022.
The meme format is based on an older 2019 image caption format "You have no skills and you're a loser," which is based on a still frame and a quote from episode 64a, titled "Skill Crane," from season four of SpongeBob SquarePants. In the episode, Squidward finally manages to pull a teddy bear from a crane machine and mocks a child about losing the game right after him (scene shown below, left; examples shown below, center and right).
You didn't win the prize? You know what that means? I means you have no skills and you're a loser! Ha!
