About

Perfectly Balanced refers to a quote from Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War which later became used in memes about the film, popularly shared in communities like /r/thanosdidnothingwrong, and is often paired with images showing a 50/50 split.

Origin

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos shows a young Gamora a knife and says of it, "Perfectly balanced, as all things should be" (clip shown below; of note, the amount of likes and dislikes on the video is even, most likely as a result of fans playing into the idea that the like/dislike ratio should be "perfectly balanced").



Spread

After the film was released, the line was popularly used in memes about the film. For example, a post in /r/prequelmemes posted April 29th, 2018 gained over 4,100 points (shown below).
