What does 五大陸制覇 means?

What does 五大陸制覇 means?
the content is:

「ボロボロ地図広げて 前人未到 大航海へ
行くぜ! ザ・五大陸制覇!」

「ぼろぼろちずひろげて ぜんじんみとう だいこうかいへ
いくぜ! ざ・ごたいりくせいは!」

In my dictionary
五大 means “the five elements” or "five great wisdom kings"
陸 means "land; shore"
制覇 means “conguest; domination; mastery”

So from that what I understand should be:
“Spread out the tattered map and discover something new
Let’s go! The five elemental land conquest”

but somehow the 五大陸制覇 feels like it has a special meaning to it, like a noun or some kind of proverb maybe?

A name maybe?
Sounds like roll credits to me.

I’ve got no clue, but 大陸 means continent if that helps.

makes more sense! thanks

Don’t think it’s a name since it’s part of a lyric of a song about being challengers

Literally I think this means “conquest of the five continents” might be a figure of speech for indicating someone or something that rules the entire world.

From what I can see by searching, 五大陸制覇 appears to be used for a person who has travelled across 5 continents. I think you’ve got the right idea now.

Thank you! I get the meaning even if I can’t find a good translation to explain it properly :smiley:
