TheLegend27 is a fictional character appearing on an online ad for the mobile video game Game of War: Fire Age, where several players start talking about the legendary player and their feats. The ad's transcript inspired a copypasta, which gained traction in middle December 2016.


On October 5th, 2016, the Game of War official channel uploaded an ad named "Campfire Stories". In the ad, four players gather around a campfire in order to talk about TheLegend27, a player that keeps defeating them; at the end, one of the players is revealed as TheLegend27. In the following two months, the video gained over 43 million views.

What are you guys playing?
I'm supposed to be playing Game Of War™ but this one player keeps kicking my ass.
Is it TheLegend27?!
Yeah, TheLegend27.
Who is the legend 27?
Some say TheLegend27 is the first Game Of War™ player ever.
Born from fire.
I heard, TheLegend27 can hurl a boulder farther than a catapult.
I heard TheLegend27 once defeated an entire army with a single blow.
But the worst part is, just when you think you're safe, just when you think you might escape…
WHAM!!! Just like that!
