About

Moon Moon is a fictional wolf character that is portrayed as a mentally challenged outcast in the pack. On Tumblr, the character is often paired with silly interior monologues in a similar vein to the Doge meme.

Origin

The character was originally conceived as an alter ago name for Tumblr user Kitchiki, who was given the name “Moon Moon” by a name generator titled "What is Your Werewolf Name? (shown below).[1] On April 5th, Kitchiki noted the silliness of the result in response to the original image post, which gained more than 158,000 notes in the first two weeks.




Spread

On April 15th, Tumblr user Frukass posted a reply[10] to Kitchiki’s post, containing a comic depicting a wolf pack on a hunt with Moon Moon suddenly rushing in to “get the thing”.



Throughout April, several social media accounts and single topic blogs dedicated to Moon Moon were launched, beginning with the first Moon Moon Tumblr Ask blog], followed by The Marvelous Moon Moon[4], the Twitter account @MoonMoontheWolf[6], The Official Moon Moon Blog[2] and F**k Yeah Moon Moon.[12] On April 26th, Facebook page “Moon Moon the Wolf”[13] was created. The legend of Moon Moon has also seen some spread beyond Tumblr, most notably on Imgur,[5] Tickled[7] and Reddit.[9]

BE A WOLF
We must be swift as a coursing river
BE A WOLF
With all the force of a great typhoon
BE A WOLF
With all the strength of a raging fire
Delirious as the dark side of Moon Moon

Incidentally, my name is Fierce Temptress. Not sure how to feel about that one.
