Kaneki Profile Picture Meme

About

Kaneki Profile Picture refers to a manga panel of Tokyo Ghoul:re main protagonist Ken Kaneki throwing back his head, with his hair obscuring his eyes. Online, setting the panel as the profile picture became associated with attempting to convey the feelings of pain, self-pity and resignation in the face of being unwanted or rejected, with memes about "kaneki avis" and "kaneki pfps" gaining popularity starting in late 2019. The meme is closely associated with UNRAVEL / Donny's Theme.

Origin

On May 28th, 2015, chapter 30 of Tokyo Ghoul:re manga series, created by Sui Ishida, was published in Weekly Young Jump. The chapter ends with Hinami Fueguchi resolving to not give up on her older brother Ken Kaneki, with the last panel showing Kaneki throwing his head back as if in resignation (panel shown below).

While the panel has been used as a profile picture before, its association with feelings of pain and self-pity did not gain widespread recognition until late August 2019, with the budding meme popularity of Tokyo Ghoul anime theme song UNRAVEL, also known as "Donny's Theme", being a major contributing factor.

On August 30th, 2019, Twitter user @AnimeWifeLover tweeted the image, writing: "just found out my healslut gf played support for another guy." The tweet received over 60 retweets and 220 likes in nine months (shown below, left). On September 6th, 2020, Twitter user @BitchAssBowie joked about Twitter accounts using the panel as their profile picture, with the tweet gaining over 40 retweets and 250 likes in nine months (shown below, right).

The meme reached more recognition when on October 13th, 2019, Twitter user @BitchAssBowie posted a mockup tweet which imagined the official Fortnite Twitter account setting the image as the profile picture. The post received over 1,100 retweets and 5,000 likes in eight months (shown below, left).

Between December 1st and 2nd, Twitter user @chopstick made a series of joke tweets, writing "I jus shot my shot," "Maybe she just fell asleep aha," "Maybe shes just busy," with the last tweet being the Kaneki manga panel accompanied by #NewProfilePic hashtag. On December 2nd, 2019, Twitter user @HolUpKnight posted screenshots of the tweets, gaining over 1,700 retweets and 7,200 likes in six months (shown below, right).

On January 10th, 2020, Redditor harambeazn posted an inquiry about the meme in /r/TokyoGhoul subreddit, gaining over 620 upvotes in four months.

Starting in February 2020, the manga panel became a popular subject of parodies. For example, on February 3rd, 2020, Twitter artist @TyroneStash posted a Guy Fieri parody of the image, gaining over 10,400 retweets and 38,400 likes in three months (shown below, left). On May 28th, 2020, Twitter user @BobaFettNotDead posted a JoJo's Bizarre Adventure parody that received over 410 retweets and 2,700 likes in one day (shown below, right).

Tokyo Ghoul: Just How Many Kanekis Are There?

It's hard to keep track of the many Ken Kanekis in Tokyo Ghoul. Just how many personalities does the tragic hero have?

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Tokyo Ghoul and Tokyo Ghoul :re.

Compared to the beginning of Tokyo Ghoul, Ken Kaneki has changed dramatically. Most recall his first big shift when, after being tortured, Kaneki's hair turned white and his personality changed drastically. However, that transformation is far from his only one. With every major event in the tragic hero's life, Kaneki's outlook and actual look morph to fit his new normal.

While it's possible to slice him up further, fans generally agree that the long-suffering Kaneki possesses six distinct personalities. From quiet and sweet to sadistic and deranged, it wouldn't be a stretch to consider these Kens completely different characters - in fact, one of them is. Here's a guide to where each Kaneki came from, what they're like and how they fit into the series.

Kaneki 1 Is Shy & Bookish, With Black Hair

The first Kaneki is a shy, bookish college student who becomes a Half-Ghoul after a date goes horribly wrong. Luckily, he finds a place in the Ghoul-friendly coffee shop Anteiku, where he works as a server and learns about the Ghoul community. As an idealist, this Kaneki is deeply troubled by an unjust world, and struggles to make sense of why Ghouls exist at all. Much later in the series, we learn that this Kaneki was withholding some pre-Ghoul trauma - after losing his father, he was frequently abused by his mother, leading to severely low self-esteem. As a survival tactic, Black Hair Kaneki adopted the mindset of it being better to be hurt himself than to risk hurting others, though this lead to a weakness that he himself could hardly stand.

Kaneki 2 Is the Iconic Version, With White Hair

It's after being tortured that Kaneki undergoes his most iconic shift, accepting himself as a Ghoul as his hair turns white. There are a few theories as to why his hair suddenly changed color. A popular one is that it's due to Marie-Antoinette Syndrome, a real-life condition connecting white hair and trauma. Another involves his awakening as a Ghoul boosting his count of the fictional "RC cells." Regardless, the change was a symbolic for Kaneki's change as a person. White Hair Kaneki rejects his past self, deciding strength is everything and all suffering is caused by one's lack of ability. Now cold, harsh and very powerful, Kaneki still wants to protect those close to him, but he pushes them away in doing so. As it turns out, this philosophy is his ultimate downfall. Anteiku is destroyed and Kaneki is cut down by Kishou Arima.

Kaneki 3 Is the Traumatized Centipede

Centipede Kaneki emerges in Kaneki's Half-Kakuja form, a powerful Ghoul transformation enabled by cannibalization. Centipede Kaneki completely loses his grip in this form, mumbling incomprehensibly, deliriously running up walls and impaling foes with centipede tentacles. It is a manifestation of Kaneki's torture, referencing the centipedes Jason would insert into his ear canal. When Kaneki's personalities gather in Tokyo Ghoul: re Chapter 141, this Kaneki was not present, indicating it may be more of an extension of White Kaneki than its own person. Prisoner #240 (who was present) is more or less the same -- a mumbling, psychotic identity formed from Kaneki's traumatic experiences.

Kaneki 4 Is Actually Haise Sasaki

Haise Sasaki isn't really Kaneki at all. After "dying" at Arima's hand, he is degraded to the nameless Prisoner #240 and revived as an amnesiac. Tortured and ashamed, he wants to forget everything that's happened to him. Captaining the Quinx Squad of the CCG, Sasaki is able to do just this, and he lives happily for a brief period as the kind, caring and somewhat awkward "den mother" of the Quinx. Of course, Kaneki's history comes knocking in the form of a hallucinated child Kaneki, who begs Sasaki not to erase the past. When Kaneki's memories return properly, he says, in one of the series' most memorable quotes, "Goodnight, Haise. I've had enough of dreaming."

Kaneki 5 Is the Darkest Personality, Known as the Black Reaper

The Black Reaper is the darkest Kaneki in the series. Similar to White Kaneki, he is cruel, cold and merciless, recalling everything that has happened to him and refusing to accept Sasaki's momentary happiness. He remembers it all - the torture, the failure and even his childhood abuse. Similar to how White Kaneki deserts Anteiku, the Black Reaper deserts the Quinx squad. He even scolds Urie for not preventing Shirazu's death. He's definitely a lot bleaker than White Hair Kaneki, as he is explicitly suicidal. When he once again confronts the "White Reaper" Arima, he is fully prepared to die.

Kaneki 6 Is the Complex One-Eyed King

The One-Eyed King is perhaps Kaneki's most complex personality. Following his fight with Arima, Kaneki regains the will to live and becomes the One-Eyed King. His previous personalities converge into a reformed, complete Kaneki who knows what's important and is ready to carry on Arima's will. His hair once again turns white, marking what seems to be a positive shift for his character. It's certainly an improvement, but the old shortcomings still hinder the tragic hero. He shoulders too much responsibility, spiraling out of control as the stress causes him to age. He ultimately fails once more, cut down by Juuzou Suzuya and transforming into the "Dragon" Kagune monster. In a more subtle change, Kaneki's visions inside Dragon help him make sense of his himself and come to terms with the world. He learns to rely on others and understands that the world is not wrong - it just is. It is this content, existentialist Kaneki that ends the series.
