Before the Universe was, Bigley was.

—A prophet on Bigley

Bigley was one of the most well-known Miiverse Deities that parodies the Ridley controversy, and even became a 'big' idol for the Super Smash Brothers Community. Bigley was extremely popular with the Smashers, and had made countless appearances on drawings and posts.

Bigley originated in a handwritten post made by a user named Side on January 19th, 2014. Bigley is currently four years old.

The actual post in question is this.

Like the Shrek meme, unfortunately, the Bigley meme was less frequently mentioned due to the closure of the Smash series community. The meme had returned on multiple occasions and was almost impossible for users to forget about.

Bigley started to become a common meme again somewhere around July 2015 in the Wii Fit U Community, and after the Smashers and memers moved to the New Super Luigi U Community, Bigley became a semi-popular meme for a long time.

Origin of Bigley

On the 19th of January during 2014, a Miiverse user by the name Side posted a drawing of Ridley disproportionate and extremely large. He named this drawing “Bigley” as a way to mock the Ridley is Too Big Meme. According to Side, Bigley was only a repost of a comment he made on someone else's post. This post was never found.

Fan Art

Ever since Bigley was posted, users of Miiverse have been drawing fan art of him. A good amount fan art consists of Bigley being placed in a situation that a popular Nintendo character would normally be in. Some kinds of fan art have Bigley’s face placed onto of that of a character from the Super Smash Brothers series of games. The most common kind of of fan art you can find is different artistic interpretations of Bigley.

Fan Characters

Just as soon as fan art was made, fan characters were too. There are over 35 fan characters to date. Each fan character is based off Bigley's design but with an extra detail to their bodies. Side has confirmed that any fan character should not be taken as canon.

Bigley Stories

Many short stories were made to explain Bigley’s purpose on Miiverse. It was originally one long narrative but that has now been lost. What remains goes as follows.

“After an epic battle Between Bigley and Shrek the Bigley Bang occurred and created Miiverse. Now Bigley is worshiped by many users of Miiverse. Bigley is immortal, like a phoenix, so when users stop talking about him he will be brought up again. Shrek and Bigley somehow best friends after these events.”

“Bigley has a younger brother named Ridley who is well known for being too big for Super Smash Brothers. Bigley is even Bigger. Bigley is the biggest thing in the universe because he is the universe. Anything that ever exists will be smaller than him because of this."

“Many Miiverse users wanted Bigley in Super Smash Brothers for Wii U and 3DS. After so many people asked for him Bigley was sent a letter by Nintendo asking him to join. Sadly Bigley was too big to open such a tiny letter. Bigley also had no hands to open it with! He was probably too big to be a fighter anyway.”

"Bigley was too big to explore the Universe, and needed a way to explore the wonders he created, thus creating Unicron, who soon betrayed him and became evil, eating dead communities. Unicron has later died, but has gained a following in the form of The First Order who are trying to revive him."

Physical Description

Physically Bigley is a mystery because of how many different interpretations of him there are, but there are still some consistencies. He always has one head with two eyes and a long beak/proboscis. His body is only a line and so are his legs. He also has two wings on the sides of his body. Bigley’s species is unknown but he has been described as a Deity on multiple occasions.

Appearances in Video Games

On a date unknown Doki Doki Hatty was released to the public. This game was a rom hack of Super Mario Brothers 2. Doki Doki Hatty had four playable characters, and Bigley was one of them. Bigley had the same abilities as Princess Toadstool in Super Mario Brothers 2.

On a date unknown Dr. Bigley was in development. It was going to be a simple hack of Dr. Mario with Bigley's face placed on top of Mario's face. Other minor tweaking would be included. Sadly the game has since now been canceled.

On the 19th of January during 2015, in celebration of Bigley’s birthday, Bigley was added as a playable character for the Wii U game Meme Run by NinjaPigStudios. This sparked controversy because Jordan, the head of the company, never asked for permission to use the character. "A damn shame for such a great character," is what most would said. Other people, mostly people who bought the game, found him fun to play as and tended to draw him as much as they could.

On the 2nd of April 2015, Jordan of NinjaPigStudios hinted at the arrival of an upcoming game called “Attack of the Memes” which had almost no mention after that first post. People were shocked on November 7th to learn that this was going to be a first person shooting game centered around Bigley with the new name, Bigley’s Revenge. On January 7th Bigley’s Revenge was released on the Wii U eShop. This was yet another game made by NinjaPigStudios that featured Bigley as a character, but this time as an antagonist. This game sparked even more controversy, not only due to the misportrayal of Bigley’s character, but also due to the fact that Jordan still never asked for permission to use Bigley in the first place. Many accused this game this game “meme pandering” and some of Bigley’s followers were even ashamed of its existence. After a week, this game was taken down from the eShop due to a misrating by the ESRB. Despite receiving an even worse reception than Meme Run, Jordan said he would bring the game back to the eShop in due time.
