Spot the Main Charater is a image macro meme using screen captures of films, television shows, or comics (usually anime). In the captures, the main characters of the work are meant to be anonymous within a large crowd of other characters, but due to their more detailed features or uniqueness, their obvious presence is ironic. Users create humorous captions pretending that the main character is difficult to find in the photo.
The earliest known instance of this joke can be found in FunnyJunk, uploaded by user ctrlfreak on April 23, 2013. The screen captioned anime is Yu-Gi-Oh, a frequent target of the meme.
This image has spawned multiple deviations all of which sarcastically miss Yugi, Yu-Gi-Oh's main character.
Tumblr user bakuras-face posted the above screen-capture of Yugi in the crowd on May 4th, 2013, and received over 69,000 likes as of March 2015.
After the popularity of that image, screen captures spread through tumblr and sites like Rebloggy and Funnyjunk. The meme has also been sighted in 9gag.
