About

Dr. Octopus Without Tentacles refers to a series of exploitable memes based on a viral photoshop in which Spider-Man character Dr. Octopus' mechanical arms were edited out, giving the impression that he simply levitates in the air. The trend originated on Twitter in early 2022 shortly after the release of the film Spider-Man: No Way Home.
