What Are The 'Oi Homelander' And 'Starlight Mogging' Memes?

Billy Butcher and Starlight are two of the main characters from the TV series The Boys. Butcher, played by Karl Urban, speaks in a heavy English accent and often greets people by saying "Oi." Erin Moriarty, who plays Starlight, became the subject of memes in January 2024 after she purportedly got plastic surgery.

The "oi Homelander" meme is based around Butcher's use of "Oi," with the memes featuring Butcher saying the line in a given context and also often saying something like, "Homelander killed me wife and stole me son," two references to Butcher's character. While these memes exist on their own, they've now combined with memes about the appearance of Starlight's face in The Boys season four, in which Starlight is shown mogging Butcher after he says the line.

Essentially, the memes poke fun at Butcher's way of speaking and the angular features of Starlight's, aka Moriarty's, face. They've become very popular on sites like TikTok and X. Some of the most viral examples feature the characters drawn in notebooks, cosplayers acting like the characters and memes using angular-faced characters like The Weeknd plastic surgery face meme to portray Starlight.
