Gendowned is a term refering to a series of videos and gifs depicting the character Gendo Ikari from the anime and manga series Neon Genesis Evangelion firing his pistol, which then cuts to a clip of someone being hit or something exploding, the clip cuts back to Gendo with the caption "GENDOWNED" written in all caps, the video is set to a clip of the song "For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)"[2] by Australian Band AC/DC.[3]


The original Gendowned clip comes from an AMV posted by Youtube user Animemusicvideo on his video titled "AMV Hell 2 son of amv hell"[4] uploaded in May 2004 (now removed), the video shows an edited clip of Gendo Akari shooting Julia from cowboy Bebop[5] in the back, the video was reuploaded by youtube user LordSatal on Jun 6, 2006 (Shown Below)
