Muda has become an Internet meme due to the popularity of a Flash animation featuring characters from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure performing special moves from the series' two videogames, known only as Mudah.swf. The animation features the character Dio Brando using his stand "The World". When an opposing stick figure attacks with a sword, a beige figure appears in front of him (presumed to be The World) and unleashes a barrage of punches with the battle cry "MUDA MUDA MUDA MUDA!"
