Chinese Beaver

The Chinese Beaver meme has taken the internet by storm. The meme features a beaver character, often accompanied by funny translations and scripts that highlight the playful and sometimes absurd nature of internet humor.


The Chinese Beaver, also known as the Chinese Gopher or the A Better Tomorrow Bear, is a viral sensation that emerged from a series of animations posted on social media. In November 2023, these 3D CGI animations, featuring a character resembling a bear, beaver, gopher, or groundhog, gained significant attention. These animations re-imagined scenes from the iconic “A Better Tomorrow” film series and the TV show “Conquer.”

Originally created by Chinese Bilibili user 乙人教动画 (B Teaches Animation) in late 2022 and 2023, these videos were reposted on TikTok and subsequently went viral on Twitter/X, where they garnered widespread reactions and quote retweets from Western, English-speaking audiences. The animations captivated viewers with their humorous and creative reinterpretations, leading to the character’s association with the “Literally Me Guys” genre.

Translation & Examples

Chinese Beaver Meme Script: One popular version of the meme features a script where the beaver is depicted giving sage advice or making a profound statement, only for the translation to reveal a humorous or nonsensical message. This subversion of expectations is a key element of the meme’s appeal. For instance, the beaver might be shown saying something that seems deeply philosophical, but the English translation might read, “Always remember to eat your vegetables!”
