Have you guys seen these?  Somehow Bionicle has been dominating the world of dank memes today.

 

What's your opinion on all this?  Have you guys been posting any of these?

Yeah, they have. I don't know why, but I'm enjoying it as it is. They seem to stem from the somewhat recently formed r/bioniclememes subreddit. And, while I haven't made any so far, I feel like I might make at least one in the future.

They do seem to be popping up all over the place today, particularly me irl, who appear to be having some form of meme of the month war.
Haven't posted any myself yet, but a few of them have given me a good chuckle.

It's great seeing our little franchise getting mainstream recognition, as much as Reddit can provide, anyway. The sudden influx of memes is as inexplicable as it is amusing, and I look forward to what else lies in store before something new obscures it.

Sometimes, I look at my desk, and think, "What am I doing with my life?"

...

Then, I go back to my videogames.

I used to be known as 'Gresh's Thornax...Ouchy!!!', before I realised what a silly name it was.

Huh, first I've heard of it, surprisingly. Probably because I never go to me_irl.

Saw a bunch on Imgur. As Roki pointed out, they're mostly from r/me_irl. They were enjoyable to see, but it's only a matter of time before it fades into obscurity, just like all of those other monthly memes.

I'd seen a couple make their way to Facebook, and then my fellows in the Kanohi Force shared a few more. Glad to see Bionicle taking over the internet again. :)

The Bionicle community facebook page is having a s*** post contest of the best Bionicle memes.
This is so far my favorite.

I saw something about this on Twitter, and I think I may have seen one or two on there as well.

 

But I haven't seen anything else on this.

I think this might be one of the ones you found based on sheer dankness alone. Can't seem to find any others, though.

I've never liked a Bzpower post so much befor.

Given that G1 fans generation are the main meme creators it makes since that G2 could of given them a form of inspiration.

Now Lego will create G3 because memes.

To help the spread of the memes here are more.

Evanescence is cringier and, thus, danker. Also, there is an unsettling amount of "Bring Me to Life" music videos of Bionicle on YouTube, thus amplifying the cringe further.

What I want to know is why Bionicle of all things? How was it chosen to suddenly be a meme theme?

From what I've gathered, there was somewhat of a war going on of which meme would become the "Meme of the month" for the me_irl subreddit, someone posted a meme referencing this picture from a few months ago. This sparked a bunch of nostalgia from the posters of the subreddit who began to make all of the Bionicle crossover memes currently on their page.

That's the definition of a dank meme.  A low quality, low effort pairing of text and image, typically in parody of those who misuse the form.

 

And while Tuuli is correct that there was originally a connotation of a connection to drug culture, this isn't necessarily the case any more -- most of these memes have nothing to do with drugs.  And in any case, there aren't actually any rules against talking about drugs on BZPower.

I haven't contributed but I've been amazed seeing how far it has spread. It's been dominating multiple meme sites, threads on 4chan, Dorkly and College Humor are posting it. Imgur is blowing up and I have friends sending me them since I like Bionicle. 

 

What a time to be alive.
