Persona 5's user interface is so beautiful and distinctive that the internet is now plastering it on nearly everything as a joke.

In his review of the game, editor-at-large Kirk Hamilton says, ā€œPersona 5 is one of the most stylish video games Iā€™ve ever played. It restlessly pulses toward the corners of your TV screen, as if unable to contain its overabundance of verve. This game doesnā€™t run, it bounces, helped along by a giddy and unusually cohesive audio-visual aesthetic.ā€

The battle menus in the dungeons have an especially kinetic feelā€”they pulsate and react to every button you press, giving the player a sense of forward momentum as they beat up demons. Itā€™s such a visually distinct style that plunking it on top of other media is just inherently funny.

After Twitter user Brent_Bento made a transparent version of the battle menu, thereā€™s been a nonstop stream of new memes made with it.

People put it on top of other games, of course:

But honestly, this menu works on anything. And I mean anything.
