There is a range of OK memes, from those captioned "okay" or "ok" to spinoffs featuring Spiderman and other characters. One such meme, Saitama OK, originated from a Japanese webcomic called One-Punch Man in which the lead character is often indifferent to the action around him. Sometimes it's someone holding up the OK hand signal. 

What Do OK Memes Mean?

The word OK is either used to be dismissive or to genuinely communicate one's okayness. OK memes are almost always low-key.

How Are OK Memes Used?

Many OK memes feature Saitama from One-Punch Man with a variety of captions indicating how little the character cares about a particular situation. Other times the memes are used as a sarcastic response to a question.

Examples of OK Memes
