    “Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.” – Sun Tzu. A quote meaningless to an essay analyzing Scott Pilgrim VS. The World (Edgar Wright, 2010). This attempt at humor is like the humor within Scott Pilgrim VS. The World, and despite being used frequently never truly dulls throughout the film’s progression.
