Who (Or What) Is Poor Little Meow Meow?

Who is my Poor Little Meow Meow?

Recommended Videos

Poor little meow meow is my baby boy. He’s my sad, little man. He’s my morally ambiguous anti-hero with violent, sometimes sociopathic, tendencies, and the saddest widdle eyes. He is downtrodden. He is Chaotic Neutral at best, and he is absolutely miserable. That’s why I love him. I can’t fix him, so instead, I will objectify him to within an inch of his pathetic little life.

Where did Poor Little Meow Meow come from?

Truth be told, Poor Little Meow Meow was not born from the dark recesses of Tumblr wholecloth, but rather evolved from a different beast all together: BTS fandom. The lovers of BTS initially bestowed the title of “Little Meow Meow” to Min Yoongi, known to his fans as Suga. It is said that he was christened so because the fandom often compares his looks to that of a cat.

Eventually, Tumblr fandoms began applying to term to their favorite sad, morally grey characters. A poor little meow meow is just as beloved as a “cinnamon roll,” but unlike a cinnamon roll, they are not good people. Examples of Poor Little Meow Meows include Breaking Bad’s Jesse Pinkman, Marvel’s Loki, Avatar: The Last Airbender‘s Prince Zuko, and Ice King from Adventure Time.

Now that you have this knowledge, I entreat you to seek out more Poor Little Meow Meows to add to the Poor Little Meow Meow database. That way, each P.L.M.M. can be appropriated captured, tagged, rehabilitated, and released back into the wild. It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it.
