I'm going to make a grand statement but hopefully I'm in good company. Eleven is, hands down, the best character on Stranger Things . She is tough. She is tender. She is a tomboy with a heart of gold. She is fearless. She is a great friend. In summation, she's basically a queen and deserves all of our love. Luckily, the fandom for Eleven has spread quickly since Stranger Things was released on Netflix earlier this summer. After a majority of us binge-watched to the full contentment of our hearts, we made fan art, we used the Stranger Things generator to create our own logos and, best of all we created memes. Nobody loves a good meme more than me, so I've taken it upon myself to make the definitive list of the best Eleven memes that unfettered access to the Internet can get me.
Unsurprisingly, there's a lot of love for Eleven floating around out there in meme-land. How can you choose just one to retweet or quote? Worse still, what happens when you find yourself identifying with all of the Eleven memes because she is the best (thereby most relatable) character on the planet? Prepare thyself, Stranger Things fans. These Eleven memes are going to speak to you on a very real level.
