Thousands of TikTok users are participating in the new ‘Vegeta Cult,’ with many confused by the sudden appearance of green jackets in everyone’s profile pictures.

TikTok is the new home of the internet’s most viral trends, and whether that’s dances, songs, memes, or life hacks, everything has the potential to go hugely viral on the platform.

But one of the wildest trends the app has seen has been the ‘cult’ trend. When a TikTok cult begins, everyone who wants to participate will change their profile picture to an identifiable image representative of the group, and will sometimes even edit their display name.

They then go on to follow anyone else participating, which can in turn lead to people following them back. People have gained thousands of followers by joining in with these trends.

Many first became aware of the cult trend after the Lana Cult, where people used the same meme image of singer Lana Del Rey as their profile picture. This was quickly followed by the Hamster Cult, and plenty of others since then.

‘Cults’ have been a phenomenon on TikTok for some time now.

The latest cult to sweep TikTok is the ‘Vegeta Cult’ which, as the name suggests, is centered around Dragon Ball character Vegeta.

While previous cults have involved using the exact same image of one thing as their pictures, for this trend people are instead editing Vegeta’s green jacket onto various other characters, memes, or famous figures.

Popular TikTokers like Charli D’Amelio have even had their comment sections overtaken with the cult, with people keen to find others on the app who are participating.
