Billy Butcher makes his message clear about his dislike towards supes, and these memes perfectly capture the energy of the favorite vigilante.
Spoiler Warning: The article contains spoilers for The Boys season 3.
The latest episode of The Boys, “Herogasm, “had a lot of hype built up leading up to its airing, and the episode did not disappoint. The epic fight between Homelander, Soldier Boy and Billy Butcher was more satisfying than the tribute to the depraved annual supes sex party from the world. of the comics.
After previous seasons of build-up, Billy Butcher finally went after Homelander himself by evening the playing field. Fans can not get enough of the perfect casting of Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, who continues to deliver every time, and these memes perfectly capture the essence of the most flawed yet lovable characters on The Boys.
This meme paints a picture of a tale as old as time, with a dad learning to love a previously unwanted family dog. Butcher and his loyal English bulldog Terror are a precious duo, but seeing Butcher with a dog does give off this “dad” energy.
It’s the same energy he exudes when it comes to Ryan, who Billy became close with following Becca’s death. Of course, fans would not expect such a rough and tumble, vengeful man to have the soft side that Ryan brings out in him.
Butcher And Hughie
Butcher and Hughie’s relationship has seen wild transformations since they first bonded over their shared sadness and rage. Ultimately, Butcher remains incredibly protective of Hughie, most recently demonstrated by his frustration with Hughie taking the Temp V.
This meme by @ peacemak3r on Twitter is a hilarious representation of the dynamic between these two characters. Butcher often feels larger than life, and Hughie comes off as defenseless and innocent despite his best efforts.
In The Middle
While Billy Butcher should hardly be known as the face of Gen X, this meme illustrates the times that Butcher is the one trying to break up fights between his crew.
This points to a pretty hypocritical nature of Billy Butcher’s character. He has his vengeful spirit but is not fully able to sympathize with others who have theirs. He tends to have blinders on in his focused mission and often seems like he only wants to work with others who will accomplish his goals of vengeance.
An Epic Moment
Who could forget the incredible Laser Baby scene in “Good For The Soul.” When Butcher and MM get attacked by hospital security, it’s all Laser Baby and Butcher to the rescue.
This meme puts this hilarious, thrilling moment into one of the most popular templates. It’s a great reminder of Billy Butcher’s resourcefulness and a good foreshadowing of his own laser eyes he’s doing damage with now. It could be foreshadowing of Billy using Ryan to fight, but he’s unlikely to willingly put him in danger.
Fit For A Queen
Fans are still trying to take in that Billy Butcher and Queen Maeve hooked up in “The Last Time To Look On This World Of Lies.” The scene was unexpected and unsurprisingly intense as the two enjoyed a rather intense, passionate, drunken spiral.
Twitter user @ hoppymcfboi22 miraculously found this image with a similar energy to the scene. With the whereabouts of Maeve currently unknown, it will be interesting to see if this dynamic gets revisited or if it was a one time thing.
Karl Vs Billy
The Boys fans of the comics and the show are very vocal about the fantastic casting of Karl Urban as Billy Butcher. He plays him with such dedication, demonstrating a rich understanding of the character’s duality.
That said, the two could not be more different, which is the mark of a fantastic actor. Karl Urban is incredibly fun-loving in interviews with an incredible sense of humor. He sometimes shares how he loves to prank his cast mates. A Twitter user @leohoratio made this fantastic meme highlighting the difference between the two.
In his more, calm, subdued moments, Billy Butcher loves a nice cup of tea. Fans share images of him sipping tea widely all over the internet because it’s fun to meme and it’s another visual representation of the lovely duality of the fan favorite character.
Of course, Billy Butcher is not the only character being widely memed while drinking his tea. This amazing meme highlights the similar energy between Butcher and the ever lovable Grogu from The Mandalorian.
Whether it’s “diabolical,” his favorite c-word, “Oi!” or his “well well well,” Billy Butcher is a man who loves his catchphrases, and fans quickly grew to love them, too. They’re a great addition to Butcher’s growing list of amazing quotes.
This seasonal meme puts Butcher’s triple exclamation up against another classis character with a large presence yet radically different demeanor. Billy Butcher is essentially the person who shows up when people deserve a lump of coal, so it works out.
