The Brief: This anime fan art meme depicts a girl hiding under a desk from a gun-wielding Terminator to represent someone cowering in the face of their competitor or nemesis.


Anime girl hiding under a desk memes originated from a piece of fan art from The Idolmaster (THE iDOLM@STER) video game posted by Twitter user @tonmoh. The image depicts the character Nono Morikubo hiding under a desk while she’s pursued by a skeleton holding a gun, a character known as a T-800 Terminator.

According to Know Your Meme, this format first started appearing online on Spanish-speaking social media pages before it was posted to Reddit in February 2020.

These memes typically label the Terminator as an aggressor and the girl as a victim, highlighting her fear and vulnerability in the face of this assassin.
