"Oh? You're Approaching Me?" is a memorable quote and scene from the manga and anime series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. A panel in which the characters Dio Brando and Jotaro Kujo approach each other is particularly well-known for producing a large number of edits. Later, an additional panel featuring Dio with folded hands also gained popularity, spawning Dio Walk / Gamer Dio versions of the meme.
The original scene occurs in Chapter 143, "DIO's World (10)", of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders manga, during protagonist Jotaro Kujo's confrontation with main villain Dio Brando. As Jotaro angrily approaches Dio, the latter asks, "Oh? You're approaching me? Instead of running away, you're coming right to me?" to which Jotaro responds, "I can't beat the shit out of you without getting closer." The issue was published on February 24th, 1992.
The scene appeared in episode 46 "DIO's World, Part 2" of the 2014-2015 Stardust Crusaders anime, first aired on June 5th, 2015.
Edits began appearing in mid-2015. One of the earliest was posted to Tumblr on June 13th, 2015 by user scarymonstersasc as an object labeling meme about the upcoming E3, gaining over 3,800 notes (shown below, left). On April 9th, 2016, Imgur user BPPegha made an edit with the character Koichi (shown below, right).
Other users have made object labeling edits using the anime version of the scene. For example, user JesusSan made a Darling in the Franxx post in /r/animemes that gained over 8,000 points (shown below, left) and another /r/animemes post from two weeks prior gained over 4,400 points (shown below, right).
Starting in April 2019, memes featuring an additional panel, taken from "DIO's World Part 5" chapter of the manga, first published on January 20th, 1992, gained popularity (shown below, left). On December 14th, 2018, Reddit user A4E3 posted the earliest known edit of the panel of the manga showing Dio with folded hands to /r/ShitPostCrusaders subreddit. On March 10th, 2019, Redditor justiono uploaded the earliest known combined version of the meme to /r/ShitpostCrusaders subreddit, referencing Alright Bro I'm Boutta Head Out meme (shown below, right). The post gained over 240 upvotes in one month.
The Dio-centered version of the format gained significant spread in April 2019, with multiple notable posts appearing in /r/ShitpostCrusaders subreddit. A version of the meme in which Dio and other JoJo's Bizarre Adventures characters wear gaming headsets gained popularity following a popular post made by Twitter user @PTSDGuts on April 8th, 2019 (shown below).
