Terrible terrible damage is a catchphrase frequently used by Dustin Browder, the game commentator for Blizzard's StarCraft II battle reports and the lead designer of the game. At BlizzCon 2009, it was used as Browder's nickname, because he used the phrase so much. The StarCraft community members have adopted the phrase, using it to describe their reaction to anything that is mind-blowing, hilarious, shocking or downright insulting.


Dustin Browder used the term several times in the Sonkie vs Yellow match at BlizzCon 2008 and used it again during Battle Report 2 and at the BlizzCon 2009 exhibition match. The phrase is so popular that it has even been proposed as a StarCraft II cheat code. The phrase is most often used by Dustin in battle reports in association with David Kim, the lead balance developer, who has won every battle report and seems to easily beat all his opponents, even top professional players. Leading Starcraft fans to joking ask Blizzard to nerf David Kim.


Several videos can be found on youtube depicting a violent, surprising or awesome action paired with a sound bite of Duston Browder saying his catchphrase "Terrible, Terrible Damage". The phrase is mostly popular on Blizzards forumes and teamliquid.net, a starcraft community site. The phrase has even made it's way into an episode of the Jace Hall Show.

The meme will probably grow in popularity with the release of Starcraft II.
