An animation meme is a trend in the animation community where an animator makes an animation of a character, usually an OC (original character), set to a clip from a song. The original animation is made for the purposes of being mimicked and spread, as a regular meme would. One takes part in the meme by creating their own animation using their OC, or character of choice, using the same song clip as the original, and giving the animation a similar theme.
Hey Ben, did you see that animation meme I sent you?

Yeah! Pretty cool. Maybe I should try making my own.

An animation meme is an animation that often loops and moves to the beat of a song. The original meme is always the template of that meme and other animator can add their own twist and characters to the meme.
- Animation memes are usually very short and simple
- always the same setup as the original meme.

Animation memes are not by default cring, but do tend to spawn a large amount of edgy and cringy content. One takes part in the meme by creating their own animation using their OC, or character of choice, using the same song clip as the original, and giving the animation a similar theme.

even tho it's called a meme, it's not a meme. the reason it's not a meme is because there's only one context that work with that template and can't be more developed than that.
animation meme is not a meme, I dare you to change my mind

A so-called "meme" that is basically an animation loop of a 16 to 18-year-old's OC (original character) doing some random shit. The OC usually is some sort of animal-human hybrid, a furry, or someone who isn't straight. I do not know what else to put.
Guy 1: Hey! Did you see the meme I sent you?
Guy 2: Yeah.
Guy 1: What do you think?
Guy 2: ... I don't get it.
Guy 1: What?
Guy 2: I don't get the meme!
Guy 1: What do you mean?
Guy 2: It's just some animation of an emo furry dancing!
Guy 1: And?
Guy 2: Where is the comedy? Where is the caption saying something funny?
Guy 1: There is no caption.
Guy 2: Then why is this a meme?
Guy 1: I honestly don't know. I think it's called an "animation meme".

It's an animation, but not a meme
Animation memes do not live up to their name
Guy 1: Hey, have you heard of animation memes?
Guy 2: Yeah, I've watched one of those videos but it turned out to be an edgy animation instead of a meme
