The Gendo Pose refers to a series of photoshop parody of Gendo Ikari, a character from the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise. The meme revolves around an image of Ikari in a steepling (hands clasped, fingers crossed) pose. Such a pose is not uncommon for an anatagonist such as himself, and is sometimes known as The Abassador Pose.
The main hallmark of Gendo’s steepling is his scary shiny glasses which make it extra great.
Although the pose appears in many other series, Photoshops of the Gendo Pose in which Gendo’s hands and glasses have been pasted onto a picture of a person or thing appear on many image-sharing anime forums.
This is the picture the majority if not all the arms and glasses come from:
No matter what the original photo may be, The Gendo Pose makes it mind-bogglingly sweet.
Lame → Badass
Unloveable → Cool dude!
