Best Memes of 2019
This category shows off the timely memes of 2019, the digital media trends that started this year and took over a corner of the internet. On Kapwing, we see these trends as a rising number of "rememes" on a certain format or template. Here are the top 10 most re-memed formats of this year.
2019 started off right with a bunch of "decade challenge" memes. In these #10YearChallenge meme, people showed pictures of themselves taken one decade apart side-by-side. The contrast illustrates the glow up!
In January, Gillette - the razor company – aired a controversial ad about men, boys, and masculinity. Because of the controversy about gender standards portrayed in the ad, the video was immediately memed all over the internet. One popular meme showed a scene where one man holds another one back after he checks out a woman.
8) Avengers Endgame Memes
Aired in 2019, the Avengers Endgame movie spawned thousands of memes. From Thanos memes to battle scene remixes, people spun the Marvel movie in all sorts of meme-able ways. Some of the most popular formats were made from the quotes "I see this as an absolute win" by the Hulk and "You could not live with your own failures" by Thanos.
Facebook's feature to mark yourself safe from national disasters is no joke, but this meme makes the format funnier because people can mark themselves safe from anything vaguely threatening. With all of the terrors in 2019, you might need to make a custom Marked Safe meme for the sanity of your friends and family.
The meme-verse could not get enough from the naruto runner that sprinted behind the newscaster on this news clip from TV. It's already insane that the background is the desert, the abandoned "Area 51" that a mob of people threatened to invade in September of this year. But for a weirdo to dash behind the man with the microphone was too much.
The Mandalorian brought a new Star Wars hero to our lives: Baby Yoda. This photo of the little Baby Yoda staring up with big round eyes has been re-memed across the internet as a symbol of innocence.
Buzzfeed called this meme - originally a combination of two viral social media posts - the "funniest meme...ever." It shows a girl trying passionately to explain her point and her mom (or friend) listening on the couch, not getting it.
Spongebob memes are evergreen. In this precious meme, he gets out of his chair, and a clever meme maker added the caption "Ight imma head out." This format went viral in fall of 2019, helping sarcastic creators all over the world express how over boomers they are.
Long live the genius that is Reddit. A brilliant YouTuber photoshopped a graphic of Joe Swanson from the Simpsons next to a screenshot of a Twitch streamer - CallMeCarson - crying on camera. Used to represent the irony of the bullied becoming the bully.
This meme will go down in history as one of the best memes from 2019. So many gold, dank memes have been created from this side-by-side photo of a screaming woman and a displeased cat. Use it for any time when one person or thing is overreacting to a situation.
Old Memes that Were Still Popular in 2019
This simple meme is irresistible this year because it shows two spidermen pointing at each other accusingly, even though they realize that they're the same. Although the image actually originates from 2011, it is still popular at the end of the decade.
9) Ralph "(Chuckles) I'm in Danger" 
Ralph from the Simpsons chuckles, but also says "I'm in danger." Use this meme for a time when you're feeling light-hearted even when you're in danger. Replace the caption above with an image or text box.
8) Alignment Chart Meme 
Alignment chart memes aren't new, but they're still funny. This year, in 2019, meme makers continued to remix this matrix of good and evil in the world. Use this alignment chart template to map images from lawful to chaotic and show the truth about some topic, subculture, or subject.

This series of images from Team Fortress 2 was one of the most popular formats of 2019. A man in shadows says "I fear no man," but that "that thing" "scares him." You fill in the blank panel with an image, text box, or photo to represent something truly frightening in your life.

This ultimate "anti-meme" shows crabs dancing on a beach with electronic music in the background. Technically, this meme is from years past, but I'm including it here because more memes were made in this than any other in 2019. So it's a winner in our book.
