Masbro (Eng. "dude") is a nickname for capybaras that grew popular in memes in early 2023. Most of the "Masbro" memes are image macros and are used as reaction images. It is employed similarly to "bruh."

The post received more than 5,900 likes in seven months (shown below, left). Prior to January 19th, 2023, an unknown user uploaded a poor-resolution version of @cjzuero's screenshot and added text reading "aduh masbro" (Eng. "ouch, dude"). On January 19th, 2023, Facebook[2] user Dio Cinta Marinette II reposted the image to "Dokumen Asli Upgrade 8TB: Not for Sale" group (shown below, right).
