Powerful Shaggy is a viral photograph and photoshops that portray Scooby-Doo’s Shaggy Rogers as a strong superhero. As a matter of fact, in mid-January 2019, memes about Shaggy became famous. But there is a history of that phenomenon. Furthermore, this all began in October 2017, when the Ultra Instinct Shaggy video appeared on YouTube, according to Know Your Meme.
Ultra Instinct Shaggy originated in 2017 when YouTuber Midya posted a scene from the Scooby-Doo: Legend of the Phantasaur. In particular, YouTuber Midya released a remix on October 12, putting the soundtrack on the cartoon from the anime “Dragon Ball Super.” Eventually, the video was titled Ultra Instinct Shaggy.
2018 saw the rise of the meme about Shaggy. In November, for instance, the user narwhal-lord14 posted a picture on Reddit with the hero, taking photos of him with a katana. Additionally, the image was incorporated with the caption:
“Heh … Like, not bad, man. You made me use 10% of my power”.
Subsequently, the captions about Shaggy making use of a small part of his strength would become the indispensable attributes of these memes. In early January 2019, a new trend about shaggy’s meme evolved. On January 13, the Redditor Roaringdoom described Shaggy as the “Bizarre Adventure”, an anime hero. Similarly, a comic book appeared on the same day with Superman on Reddit, who is calling for help from Shaggy.
The meme gained attention around the world for the next few days. Also, Memes with clips from an interview with the stars of the 2002 movie “Scooby-Doo” became a different genre. Also, users were placing fake credits on them, and it turned out that the characters talk about Shaggy’s abilities.
