Roblox Baller | Know Your Meme : #Roblox #Baller #Meme CelebSurgery
Roblox Baller is a boss character and playable class in the boss fighting Roblox experience “Boss Fighting Stages Rebirth” who attacks by throwing red dodgeballs at opponents. In October 2022, Baller became the subject of fan art and ironic memes and shitposts when a TikToker posted a video telling people to “Stop Posting About Baller,” parodying the Stop Posting About Among Us video.
Baller first appears in chapter four of “Boss Fighting Stages Rebirth,” a Roblox experience where you fight enemies and bosses through a number of stages as a variety of character classes, created by SuperCloud9 on November 30th, 2013. Baller appears in the game with a red shirt, black pants and a smirk on his face (shown below). He appears as both a boss and playable character class and throws dodgeballs to attack. In the game’s beta, Baller was seen as overpowered and nerfed in later builds.
