“Dormammu I’ve come to bargain memes” feature Dr. Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) from the 2016 film Doctor Strange (spoilers ahead).

In this climactic scene, Dr. Strange announces to the villain Dormammu that he’s “come to bargain.” Instead of a traditional bargaining technique, Dr. Strange traps Dormammu in a time loop.

While some iterations of this format focus on bargaining scenarios, many more specifically reference how Dr. Strange bends time. These Dormammu memes are particularly popular on Reddit.
