About

General Grievous is a villainous character from 2004's Star Wars: Clone Wars who later had a more well known role in the 2005 movie Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. He has been inserted into various reaction images, image macros, and various meme templates amidst a surge in Star Wars Episode III memes posted to various meme-themed subreddits in early 2017.

Origin

General Grievous first appears on the Cartoon Network animated series Star Wars: Clone Wars in Chapter 20, which aired on April 8th, 2004 (shown below, left).[1] He gains notoriety in the series as he is able to kill over several jedi before the series concludes leading into the next movie. He then later appears in the opening battle sequence of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.[1] There, he fights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker while holding Chancellor Palpatine prisoner (shown below, right).



Spread

In the years following the film's release, Grievous gained some popularity outside of the Star Wars fandom. He was briefly mentioned in Mr. Plinkett's review of Revenge of the Sith. Plinkett noted that Grievous was one of many flaws with the opening sequence's tone and also that he was bafflingly incompetent (seen at about 20 minutes in the video below).



Meme Generator Creation

On February 2nd, 2014, a memegenerator template was created using Grievous' image,[2] but the tone of the meme was never established and did not find widespread use.

Grieve-Tan

Grieve-tan is an alternate interpretation of General Grievous from the Star as a Japanese schoolgirl that rose in popularity on 4chan’s /co/ (Comics and Cartoons) board.



This Will Make a Fine Addition to My Collection

In early 2017, an image macro of General Grievous saying "This will make a fine addition to my collection" began growing popular on the /r/dankmemes subreddit. In the original context, Grievous says the line to Obi-wan about his lightsaber before foolishly showing him exactly where he's keeping it. In the image macros, the line is paired with various captions that alter the context.
