The “OOF” meme came from the sound played upon the death of a Roblox avatar, was started back in 2006 when ROBLOX launched. The way of saying “OOF” this way was first started by a user while playing “The Streets”; a fairly popular player versus player game on ROBLOX. The user states he had randomly started mocking the Roblox death noise towards players as a means of trolling them once they were defeated. He states he “randomly just started using the term one day and all of a sudden he sees a lot of other players committing the same act a short while after”. “I feel like it spread like wildfire”, he said and “I didn’t know it would drag so much attention from the online community”.
