I Banged Your Mom

Demetrius: Villain, what hast thou done?
Aaron: That which thou canst not undo.
Chiron: Thou hast undone our mother.
Aaron: Villain, I have done thy mother.

Basically this is when one character is sleeping with another's mom, usually for comedic effect.

Often carries the implication (if it's not stated outright) that the speaker was able to sleep with the mom because she Really Gets Around, usually prompting an angry My Girl Is Not a Slut reaction. Reactions are especially volatile if the mom has only recently become divorced/widowed from the dad, and especially if she's still married to him. The characters this is said to are usually male, and they almost never get similar remarks about their dads; possibly a result of Most Writers Are Male.

People seldom say "Thank you, man, she was so lonely after the divorce" or "I hope you had fun, and I'll kick your ass if she didn't" or "Well I hope you enjoy genital warts". Any of these would destroy the insulting intention with a good shrug-off. Strangely, often the only proof is the word of the person who says the line, and few of the attacked ever seem to seriously doubt the sentence. This trope is common mainly in American media, rarely seen (if at all) in continental European or Asian media (at least for comedic effect, it is seen for tragic effects in the form of rape, but then it's not this trope).

If it's just an insult - they never actually did it - check out Your Mom. note  "I banged your wife" is a variant, and much more insulting. If it happened a long time ago and said character was conceived from said coitus, see Luke, I Am Your Father.

    Anime & Manga 
  • In Fruits Basket Shigure bangs Akito's mom. Akito is NOT AMUSED.

  • Not played for laughs in Revolutionary Girl Utena, where Akio sleeps with his fiancee Kanae's mom in a sick game of manipulation and guilt tripping.
  • In Chiho Saito's Kanon, which may or may not have inspired the aforementioned Utena example, Gen Mikami is sleeping with his fiancée Maria's mother. When Maria finds out about this affair (shortly before the wedding, no less) she goes more than a little nuts.

    Fanfiction 
  • "Harry Potter and the Sun Source" by Clell65619 has Harry do this to Narcissa Malfoy in Chapter 6. Raised by Master Chiun of Sinanju in the "Remo Williams" universe, Harry is an assassin who killed Lucius Malfoy during an attack. Going to Malfoy Manor on Boxing Day, he guesses Narcissa wants Voldemort dead so Draco won't get further infected by his evil. Her offer to "ensure a more binding agreement" leads to Draco seeing them in the bedroom and Harry zinging Draco with "Don't worry Draco, you won't have to call me 'Father' right away. We'll work into it." Needless to say, this doesn't end well for Draco..

  • In Major League, Jake comes out to the mound at one point, and Rick admits that his arm is worn out and he doesn't know if he can get the last batter out to win the game.

Said batter immediately pops up, slams his bat on the ground angrily, and can do little as Jake catches it for the last out of the game.

    Literature 
  • Touched upon but never really gone into in much detail in Wicked Lovely: Aislinn's mother was previously thought to be the summer queen, prior to her suicide and Aislinn's reveal as said queen. This means that she had a relationship with Keenan. Whom Aisliin breifly falls in lust with in Fragile Eternity. It was non-sexual in both cases, but the squick is still there.
  • "The Man in Black fled across the desert, and the Gunslinger followed." This is why. Oh, Roland may claim it's so he can continue his quest for the Tower, but really? This trope.

    Live Action TV 
  • In the Red Dwarf episode "Polymorph", the Polymorph takes on Rimmer's mother's form and claims to have slept with Lister just to elict outrage from Rimmer - so it can devour his anger. (Rimmer's mother had this sort of reputation anyway, Rimmer was just in denial.)
    "ALPHABETTY SPAGHETTI?!?!"
  • It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has an episode titled, "Mac Bangs Dennis' Mom." Guess what happens.

  • In the My Name Is Earl episode Van Hickey, Earl and his friends start a rock band. They get drunk after the show, and attempt some debauchery with some beautiful groupies. One of the band members is a Momma's Boy, and his mom comes in with cookies. Since the woman Earl was attempting to sleep with passed out from the alcohol, Earl ended up turning to his friend's mom. ("She wasn't young, but she was conscious.") Which becomes a list item later...resulting in a Shotgun Wedding. (Or, as Earl puts it, a "pistol pressed firmly to your temple" wedding.)
    • The guy actually tries to get even by attempting to sleep with Earl's mom. It doesn't work.
  • One episode of Scrapheap Challenge had the situation where the two experts were father and son.

So bonus points here to Michael who invoked the trope after having actually done the deed.
  • Dr Rudi from Australian lifestyle show parody Life Support once suggested sleeping with all one's friends' spouses, just to be able to invoke this trope and win arguments.
  • Hilariously subverted in That '70s Show, when Kelso and Fez mistakenly believe that Eric has banged Donna's mother and start bowing to him... in front of him and Donna. "YOU'RE A GOD!!"
  • In Rome, Mark Antony attempted to invoke this trope after a heated argument with Octavian as he left the room:

    Antony: That's right, just the same. AND STILL FUCKING YOUR MOTHER!!
  • How I Met Your Mother:
    Barney (with a stuffy nose): You kiss your mother with that mouth?
    Ted: Like you've never said that word.
    Barney: I don't kiss your mother with my mouth... yet. (Sneezes.)
    Ted: Are you sick?

note .
  • Old bar joke: A guy walks into a bar, sits next to a younger guy, and starts drinking. After a few too many, he turns to his seatmate and starts going, "Hey, man, I did your mom!" He does this again a few minutes later. Before he can get started the third time, the younger guy says, "Damn it, Dad, leave me alone!"
  • Another old bar joke: This bald guy is at an office party, and his boss comes up to him and starts rubbing his head. "Damn, Jenkins, your head is smooth as my wife's butt!" The bald guy starts to rub his head himself, and exclaims, "Well, sir, so it is!"

    Party Games 
  • Crack The Case, a game in which participants ask yes/no questions to solve mysteries, featured a case in which a college student arranged for his roommate to fall to his death from a window. The motive was that he discovered the roommate was having sex with the murderer's mother.

    Stand Up Comedy 
  • This is an integral part of the comedian-heckler relationship. Jimmy Carr shows us how it's done:
    Jimmy: *Holding up a T-shirt* World's Greatest Dad.note 
    • Another occasion:
    Heckler: Your mum keeps calling me asking for sex.
    Jimmy: My dead mum keeps calling you?
    Heckler: Yeah, I'm up for it.
    Jimmy: Oh, he's up for it, folks! Good for you! Well that may seem like a horrible thing for him to blurt out, but the fact is that I was warned he would be here tonight. Yeah, I was. I was warned by your mum. [...] At least, I think she was talking to me; I wasn't the only one there."
  • A regular response by Andrew "Dice" Clay to any vocalization (heckle or not) from his audience "Your mother... [beat], [beat], (shrug), yeah, I f***ed 'er." At least once subverted when a numerous male audience group responded from the balcony, "yeah? Your mother WE f***ed 'er!!" - Clay completely lost his "tough" in a LOL moment.
  • Comedian Brendon Burns can't understand why this is supposed to be an offensive insult. "My mom's 65. You're 24. Looks to me like a big result for Mom, and a big loss for you."

    Theater 

    Video Games 
  • The RED Spy to the BLU Scout's mother in Team Fortress 2 (and based on the domination responses, the color opposites might fit as well). The BLU Spy, when discussing the Red Spy's exploits, gets perhaps the most interesting setup for the line by providing photographic evidence (see above) of the act.
    BLU Scout: What're you? President of his fan club?
    BLU Spy: No... That would be your mother! *scatters photographs*
    • The Demoman also gained a domination taunt over the Medic: "Dominated! And I've been shagging your wife, ha!"
  • John Marston in Red Dead Redemption is often reminded, most especially by Dutch, that his wife, Abigail, used to be their gang's whore. He isn't at all fazed by that, and neither is his wife.
  • In Fable III, the evil gnomes will sometimes say, "I think I'm gonna come around yer house for tea... and then I'll 'ave yer mum!"
  • Spoofed in I Wanna Be the Guy, as it is said- in typical trope fashion as pre-bossfight taunting- by a person who actually has the right to say this without retribution, the protagonist's father.
  • Spoofed in Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 4: The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood:
    Guybrush: [as defense attorney] Captain Threepwood, where were you on the night of August 15th? [as witness] I was on a date... with your wife! [as defense attorney, angry] Why you—! [cue the fighting]

    Jaden: I. Plowed. Your. Mother.
  • There was an old fiasco back at deviantART when the staff introduced a ridiculously flawed algorithm to sort popular deviations. Many members welcomed it, believing it will get the anime/fan art off the front page. Well the anime/fan art was instead replaced with a gif of a stick figure banging a "your mom" sign (that wasn't even made by the person who posted it).
  • Used in Hey Ash Whatcha Playing as a joke. In the past Papa Burch was tormented by a bully. He says this to her.

Later disgusted with the knowledge that he slept with his father's ex-girlfriend and that Dermott is his half-brother Hank has his memory wiped but leaves himself a message informing himself he wasn't a virgin.
