Mind Size, also known as Brain Size, is a reaction image depicting animated character Megamind (played by Will Ferrell) grinning next to a washing machine dial (which uses the same image as the Oof Size Large meme) labeled "Mind size" that is set to “Mega.” A second version depicting YouTuber Markiplier with his forehead humorously enlarged uses the meme Yeah, This is Big Brain Time with the reaction image showing his face next to the dial labeled “Brain size” that is set to "Large." Each of these variants are typically used as reaction images to show the intellect or wittiness of the above caption or image in the top panel. Though usually genuine, they can also be used sarcastically.


The image used in the Mind Size meme comes from the cover art of the film Megamind, which hit theaters on October 30th, 2010, after its release to DVD, Blu-ray and digital platforms. The cover artwork (shown below), features the movie’s protagonist smirking while looking toward the camera and was also used during promotion.

The meme continued to spread primarily on Reddit as several versions were posted to a wide array of subreddits in February 2020. Shortly after the original, Redditor[2] Dank-meme-addict posted another example to r/memes on February 8th, 2020, depicting Megamind with a glowing eyes effect added to the reaction image.

As the format saw frequent use on meme subreddits in the following days, it then began to spread outside these subs across the platform. On February 19th, 2020, Redditor[3] gideonsnippe posted a version relating to Minecraft on the r/minecraft sub (shown below).

Brain Size / Big Brain Time Variant

After the Megamind version of the meme rapidly spread around Reddit, another version depicting YouTuber Markiplier began popping up as another variant of the reaction image with slightly different imagery. Stemming from the “Yeah, This is Big Brain Time” meme that was popularized in mid-2019, the reaction image swaps Megamind for Markiplier and the text “Mind Size” for “Brain Size.”

Used in the same context as Megamind’s Mind Size, Brain Size (shown below) was posted by Redditor[4] DaFunEMan_YT to the r/dankmemes sub on February 25th, 2020, where it received over 50,000 upvotes, Reddit awards and 100 comments.
