The {{Trope Namer|s}}, "Beam me up, Scotty", was never actually uttered in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''. More often, Kirk said "Four to beam up," and he was talking to whoever happened to be at the Transporter console. Scotty was rarely at the console as he was the ''chief engineer''. One of the films got pretty close, but even then, it was phrased: "Scotty, beam me up." Contrary to popular belief, it is not even said in ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'' - though that's where they come closest: "Beam ''us'' up, Scotty". The actual phrase comes from a famous ''Star Trek'' bumper sticker - "Beam me up, Scotty, there's no intelligent life on this planet." It finally made an appearance in the franchise when Creator/WilliamShatner himself said it in the audiobook version of his 1995 novel ''The Ashes of Eden''. It was later used in the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' remake.[[labelnote:*]] Another example from Shatner is in his autobiography ''Up Till Now'', which comes in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-HGETS29Bw audiobook form.]][[/labelnote]]

]] [[/labelnote]] More often, Kirk said "Four to beam up," and he was talking to whoever happened to be at the Transporter console. Very rare was this Scotty himself, who was the ''chief engineer,'' meaning ''no'' version of the command was said to him with any regularity.

* Many people who cosplay as [[BoardGame/{{Monopoly}} Rich Uncle Pennybags]] wear a monocle for some reason, as [[Website/{{Cracked}} Cracked.com]] [[http://www.cracked.com/article_24565_hard-truth-time-monopoly-guy-never-had-monocle.html points out]]. Never before has the ''Monopoly'' mascot sported one, not even when the game was first released in 1936. They're probably confusing him with another [[http://www.planters.com/-/media/kraft-heinz/planters/images/gettoknowplanters/planters-through-years/1950_mr_p.ashx?h=510&w=290&la=en&hash=12395F7FED42766F01BAC264A02DDFB299ADFDA6 gentlemanly mascot]].

* A popular meme with ''{{VideoGame/Uncharted}}'' is Sully exclaiming "Nate, noooooo!" when Nate dies while the game's [[MostAnnoyingSound death music]] plays. Sully does exclaim "Nate!" and "Noooo!" as potential exclaimations, but never both as one line.

** Similarly to the above, the series' reputation as being full of dramatic posing comes mainly from the Capcom game. While there's plenty of posing in the manga, it isn't as common or as elaborate as one might think from references to the game. In fact, some of the most iconic "[=JoJo=] Poses," including Dio's pelvic thrust, were made up entirely for the game and don't happen in the manga.

** Dio's TimeStandStill move is never called ZA WARUDO. It is merely named Time Stop, and the Stand's name is The World. It is never implied to be spelled in broken English too (ZA WARUDO rather than The World).

** Despite what many people think, ''Anime/DragonBallZ'''s Freeza never once uttered the phrase "This isn't even my final form." The misquote likely comes from him uttering "''This'' is my final form" after, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin reaching his final form.]] That hasn't stopped the misquote from becoming a meme, though.

* The phrase "The frozen tundra of Lambeau Field" was never spoken by NFL Films narrator John Facenda; it comes from Chris Berman's imitation of him.

** "You dirty brother killer" is another line often associated with Sans on a No Mercy route. He doesn't actually say this on a No Mercy route, but he does on certain Neutral routes after his judgment, if you've killed Papyrus and answer "no" to his question.
