the likes of (someone or something)
Anything comparable to someone or something. Typically used in a negative construction to indicate that something is unique or rare. Meteorologists think that blizzard was the storm of the century, so we shouldn't be seeing the likes of it again anytime soon. That acrobat show was incredible. I've never seen the likes of it.

someone or something similar to that person or thing; the equal or equals of someone or something. I never want to see the likes of you again! We admired the splendid old ships, the likes of which will never be built again.
