Zero Two, or Code:002, is the main heroine and the deuteragonist of anime series Darling in the Franx. A pink-haired, horned female FRANXX pilot, Zero Two gained significant fandom following the release of the series and spawned multiply related memes such as "Zero Tuesday" and "Say, 'Ahh'".
On July 5th, 2017, a teaser for then-upcoming anime series Darling in the Franx was released on YouTube, showing the main characters Hiro and Zero Two. On January 13th, 2018, first episode of anime series Darling in the Franxx aired in Japan, with artificial human-klaxo sapiens hybrid and elite pilot Zero Two (Code:002) introduced.
In the series, the character is nicknamed "Partner Killer" due to the fact that none of her previous co-pilots survived more than three missions. Used to be shunned by others but assertive, Zero Two is highly motivated by her goal to become fully human. Through the course of the series, Zero Two becomes a pilot partner for Hiro, the main protagonist of the series, whom she often addresses by the eponymous "darling".
Starting in January 2018, fan art, tribute videos and memes about the character were created by the anime community. For example, a post made by Reddit user Frocharocha on January 23rd, 2018, gained over 650 upvotes in six months (shown below, left).
On February 13, 2018, YouTube user Sam RG posted a You So Fuckin' Precious When You Smile edit dedicated to the heroine, which gained over 700,000 views in one year.
