“Oof” sound effect

From its release until November 2020, Roblox’s “oof” sound effect when a character dies became an internet meme. The sound was originally produced by video game composer Tommy Tallarico for the video game Messiah, released in 2000. The use of the effect on Roblox caused a copyright dispute. The dispute ended when Roblox agreed to pull the sound from the platform and replace it with another death sound, and Tallarico agreed to allow Roblox to buy and republish the sound for $1 on the platform’s marketplace where game developers can do it at a later date.
