266 Unique Lordz, 1000s of Collectible NFTs
Our roster has 266 unique Meme Lordz, a wide-ranging list of controversial and meme-able characters that have both captured our attention and dominated the historical & cultural milieu.
This ever-expanding list of the most dominating thoughts (Memes) of human history, might arguably function as an ever-evolving Meme Museum – a forever land of what once made us smile like nothing else, humbled and inspired us, made us throw up in our mouths, or made us experience cringe in its purest form:
Each Meme Lord can be captured in battle through the use of Meme Shards which allow the players to bind a wild Meme Lord & bring it back to the Meme Stream to cleanse its corruption & add it to their party.
Memes, taken from the wild, trained, evolved, brought into battle, immortalized on the blockchain, to live in our collective minds forever.
Feast your eyes on this expansive list of Meme Lordz, their primary types and respective evolution trees. We plan to add new Lordz periodically by engaging our community with polls and contests. Stay tuned.
Meme Lord Stats
Each Meme Lord is comprised of 12 base stats which govern the following:
- Health Points (HP)
- Energy Points (EP)
- Attack – Used when calculating the damage of a Meme Lord using a normal attack. This stat is weighed against the defending Meme Lordz base defense.
- Defense – Used calculating the damage taken by a Meme Lord when receiving a normal attack.
- Speed – Used in the turn calculations to determine which team plays moves first. Both primary and secondary Meme Lord speed stats are factored into this calculation.
- Healing – Used when calculating the healing given by a Meme Lord using a normal healing move.
- Buffing – Used when calculating the strength of any given buff/debuff given by a Meme Lord using a normal buff/debuff.
- Special – The special stat effects all special moves regardless of the move. Used when calculating the strength of a special attack/healing/buffing.
- Special Defense – Used when calculating the damage taken by a Meme Lord when receiving a special attack.
Each Meme Lord specializes in a ‘Role’ similar to traditional RPG games; Tank, Healer, Damage Dealer & Buffer. This paves the way for incredibly unique battle dynamics between the ever-expanding possibilities for party composition and strategy!
Have a Jesus as your secondary Meme Lord healing a Kim Jong Un on the field and decimate your opponent. Cripple your enemy with a Mark Zuck as secondary casting tech typed debuffs while your Jackie Chan attacks from the field!
Gameplay: Battle System
The Meme Lordz battle system is a perfect homage to the turn-based combat systems revered in the nostalgic games of yore…with a modern & advanced twist.
The game offers a dynamic, turn-based combat system, which pits two players against each other with a total of 4 Meme Lordz each. The system allows a primary Meme Lord on the battlefield & a secondary (rotatable) Meme Lord playing from the bench. Players can select from 100s of unique moves that draw from 1 to 14 affinities. From attacks, heals, life-steals, shields, buffs & debuffs, players will always find themselves developing unique play-styles through experimentation.
The Meme Lordz battle system allows users to cast a number of varied effects on both their primary Meme Lord & enemy. These effects range from increases in base stats (attack buff, defense buff) to absorption shields, attack reflection shields & damage/heal over time effects.
The effects in Meme Lordz are divided into 2 types:
Time based effects will “tick” once per turn, after the effected Lord has played their move.
Usage based effects will only “tick” when the Meme Lord has gained usage of the effect.
For example: Your Meme Lord has an effect which increases defense. This effect will only “tick” when your Meme Lord receives an incoming attack & thus benefiting/using the effect. This solves many turn sequence related problems and adds a huge new complexity to the system.
Each Meme Lord has been assigned a Primary & Secondary Affinity which best suits that Meme Lordz history and temperament. Each Affinity comprises of a unique move pool which only Lordz of that Affinity may learn.
Each Affinity may cause varying damage multipliers when using moves in combat.
The current Meme Lordz version contained 14 unique Affinities.

The evolution trees in Meme Lordz are complex and illusive. They are the holy grail of creating real rarity and demand in our NFT ecosystem. Some Meme Lordz can be acquired through chance when the Meme Lord is evolving, others require incredibly rare items.
Each evolution path has a number of parameters which determine the chance.
Base chance: All Evolutions paths have a base chance. Each Evolution path base chance is factored into a random roll. Some base chances may be 0.
Conditional item: Evolution paths with a conditional item setup are not available unless the required item is equipped to the Meme Lord who is evolving. If a conditional item is present, the evolution system looks to the base chance & compares it with all other eligible evo paths.
Chance item: Evolution paths with a chance item setup are always factored into the Evo path random roll, regardless of whether the chance item is equipped. If the chance item IS equipped, the base chance of that evolution path will increase.
Evolution setups may be as simple as 3 paths all with a 33% base chance of success.
Other paths may have 0% base chance, but require a chance item to increase the base chance to 5%.
This demonstrates the variability of evolution trees and the complexity and depth that can be achieved in controlling the rarity of our most coveted Meme Lordz!
