Since The Mandalorian was first announced, it’s been clear that it would take the internet by storm. But what no one was expecting was how much of a key role “the asset” would play in the viral love the show would get. First revealed at the end of episode one and now officially unveiled by the Star Wars Twitter account, that bounty is none other than a cutie who has been given the moniker of “Baby Yoda“—not because it’s actually Yoda as a baby, but because the species has never been named. Alongside Yoda and Yaddle, this is only the third type of this enigmatic alien race that we’ve ever seen. As can be expected when something cute appears, the internet lost its collective mind and it’s been nothing less than a joy to watch. We’ve collected our favorite Baby Yoda reactions and memes for your perusing pleasure.

The largest reaction has been one of undying love, devotion, and willingness to die for the very cute bb alien.

It was a universal feeling online.

Like literally everyone is willing to take a bullet for the baby.

It’s become an obsession for some.
