6) You Cannot Grasp the True Form of Giygas’ Attack from Earthbound

In Earthbound, when you face the final boss Giygas, you are taken on a mind screw of a trip. First off, you’re basically just souls inside robots, since fighting Giygas in your human form would be impossible. But even as the robots, you’re still at a disadvantage. Giygas is the embodiment of evil and darkness. How can one grasp its true form? That’s at least the explanation of the meme’s origin. As for the meme itself, it’s used to describe anything that lacks explanation, usually disturbing in nature.

What makes this meme work is the disturbing nature and the abstract form that we are given of the evil: a weird bloody smudged face thing. And some of the most disturbing sounds one could ask for. You can’t help but feel uncomfortable or freaked out when you watch this and try to grasp its true form. It’s damn near impossible.
