About

Wega, also known as Wega Bros or Wega Storm, refers to a hue-shifted image of Luigi from the video game franchise Super Mario. The image shows Luigi with a shocked expression and purple skin, and originates from the cover of the 2001 Nintendo game Luigi's Mansion. The image is often accompanied by a distorted scream sound and is used for bait-and-switch videos, or to spam quote tweets and replies on Twitter.

Origin

On September 14th, 2001, Nintendo released the second Super Mario game, this one featuring Luigi as the main character, known as Luigi's Mansion.[1] The cover art for the video game featured Luigi sporting a shocked expression (seen below).

In the Fall of 2022, people began to spam an edited version of the aforementioned cover in which Luigi is hue-shifted to appear purple. This image, which was often accompanied by the sound of a distorted scream, was dubbed "Wega." The earliest known posts using the word "Wega" were tweeted by @telemac0 in Mar 2022.[2] On May 27th @telemac0 posted a screenshot of someone with a hue-shifted pink Luigi display picture, gathering seven likes in six months (seen below). [3] Subsequent early posts used similarly various hues to color Luigi.[4] [5]

BTW that's the HL2 beta stalker scream (well not "the", there was 3 of them originally with this one just being a louder version of another), which I think is unused in retail HL2 though it is featured in the files.
It's pretty well known for being an overused screamer sound effect in GMOD horror maps, since it's basically the only "screamer" sound that the game has by default.
