TikTok’s one billion monthly active users are constantly drawn in by the platform’s hip new features. This time, though, it has shown off a bizarre new development in El Gato Cat Print, leaving many fans to wonder what the deal is. Learn all about El Gato Cat history by reading on!
Not “El Gato,” but “Arigatou”
El Gato Cat, made famous on TikTok, is based on the “Sonido Original” sound effect from the Demon Slayer video game. If you have a Japanese TikTok account, you can hear the character say “arigato,” which means “Thankyou” in Japanese, to another character.
Although it’s actually pronounced “Arigato,” everyone on TikTok thought it was “El Gato” because of the similarity in pronunciation. Recent episodes of the TV series Demon Slayer provided the audio. Let me fill in any gaps in your knowledge of Demon Slayer.
The protagonist of the Japanese manga series Demon Slayer is a young guy named Tanjiro Kamado, who dreams of a career as a demon slayer. After his sister Nezulo is transformed into a demon and his family is murdered, he does this.
You can hear the character Sumo say “arigato,” which means “thank you” in Japanese, to Tengen Uzui in this clip. Unaware users established a Tiktok fad by disseminating a cat cutout with the audio still playing in the background. The name “El Gato Cat” wasn’t coined until after that.
