Just For Fun: Backstroke Of The West
Ratio Tile (Obi-Wan Kenobi): The front is a lemon avenue flying straightly

Star War the Third Gathers: Backstroke of the West is a Recursive Translation of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, found in China by this blogger.

The name is taken from the translation of the opening crawl (the original saying, obviously, "Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith".

Some sentences are absolutely mangled in the translation (read: most of them) while some sentences still have their original meanings intact. This particular bootleg has been subject to Memetic Mutation, perhaps the most famous example being "do not want".

A fanmade Hong Kong Dub using the same script also exists, with even lulzier results.

Note: Only tropes about this particular translation should be put here. Anything on the proper translation should go on the proper page.
