    Все на меня

    Can "Все на меня" mean "everyone is against me?" Would that be what the phrase alone would imply, or would it imply "everyone against me" without the "is," or am I totally off and it couldn't mean either one?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    I think 'everyone against me' would be все против меня.

    Does not this mean?
    "Все на меня" = "Everything on me"
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    I know the word "protiv," but in that famous famous film Battleship Potjomkin, a caption is "Все на одного... Один на всех," so I thought maybe "на" could also be used to mean "against" in other contexts, as in one thing to or on another in English, man to man, one on one, etc. Does it maybe only work in that context?

    Maybe it is like the three musketeers: "All for one! One for all!"

    I think it is something like All (are doing something) on/to/at me. The meaning depends on context.

    But written "все" could mean either "все" or "всё"

    Yes, in fighting, military etc. contexts "на" can mean "against".
    For example:

    All against one, that's unfair.
    Все на одного - так не честно (or maybe нечестно, I'm not sure if it should be together or separately)

    Let's fight one on one, man to man, only you and me.
    Давай драться один на один, как мужчина с мужчиной, только ты и я.
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.
