Explanation[edit]

This strip is a reference to an oft-quoted line from the original Legend of Zelda game. When you first start the game, a nearby cave houses an old man, giving away a sword with the line "It's dangerous to go alone! Take this." In the Internet era, the line became a nostalgia-based meme. This Garfield strip fits inexplicably well with this line.

The author writes:[edit]

I don't like flogging dead horses anymore than the next person, but when I saw Nermal's introduction, I couldn't resist. And now for the dreaded Know Your Meme link.

Original strip: 1979-09-03.

Transcript[edit]

Jon: {holding Nermal out towards Garfield} It's dangerous to go alone. Take this.
