Tesseroki is the cargo ship between Loki and tesseract from the Marvel Cinematic Universe fandom.


The Avengers

Loki's arrives on Earth through the Tesseract, which he takes with him as he leaves the SHIELD facility. He creates a plan to use the Tesseract bring a Chitauri army to Earth. When Thor takes Loki back to Asgard at the end of the film, he and Loki both hold the Tesseract for the journey.

Thor: Ragnarok

Loki is tasked with starting the Asgardian apocalypse by placing the crown of Surtur into the Eternal Flame. While carrying the horns through the dungeon, Loki pauses as he passes the Tesseract.

Avengers: Infinity War

It's revealed that Loki took the Tesseract from the dungeons before escaping. When Thanos attacks their escape ship, Loki withholds the Tesseract until Thanos threatens Thor's life, and it appears that Thanos might actually kill him. Loki then presents the Tesseract, giving it up to save Thor.

Avengers: Endgame

Due to the time travel of the Avengers, Hulk smashes the door of the stairs, throwing (future) Tony Stark with the case containing the Tesseract, which flies directly next to Loki's feet. Using this opportunity, Loki picks up the Tesseract and teleports away with it.


Loki uses the tesseract to teleport himself to Mongolia, when the TVA apprehend him. He remains particularly interested in Tesseract, telling personnel to "be careful with that" when it's logged for evidence. Loki later slips out of the room where he's being interrogated, and tracks down the man who logged the Tesseract to get it back. Loki threatens him and gets back the Tesseract. He escapes again, back to the interrogation room with the Tesseract. Mobius later finds Loki there with the Tesseract, and asks if he's tried to use it; Loki says he has, several times, but acknowledges that the TVA is formidable since even an infinity stone doesn't work there.


Numerous fans have found Loki's little obsession with the Tesseract funny and decided to create a meme about it. He is often depicted in memes featuring choices to make and him preferring the side of the Tesseract. Sometimes memes will go the other way, with Loki looking away from the Tesseract to something or someone new, which is a measure of the level of interest in the new person or thing. The "distracted boyfriend" meme is often used for this, with Loki being the one distracted, either looking at or away from the Tesseract. Actor Tom Hiddleston even recreated the meme for a fan photo, with him holding a fan's hand and looking away from her to check out the Tesseract.[1]

In visual fanworks like fanart, Loki is often depicted holding the Tesseract.
