* [[spoiler: Adachi]] from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' is often associated with the line "Bitches and Whores", though he never said it once in the game. However, the line ''does'' pretty much sum up his opinion on girls. The line actually comes from a doujinshi. [[AscendedMeme He does say it in]] TheAnimeOfTheGame though.

* People often credit ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' with the phrase "Girl Power!" when in actuality they never say this in the show. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in an episode where Professor Utonium's roommate clones them. One of them says "Girl Power!" on TV, and the Professor says, "since when do you ever say girl power?" Buttercup replies nervously with "uh, yeah we say it all the time". However, there has been a Rowdyruff Boys versus Powerpuff Girls game on the Cartoon Network website for some time, which uses the phrase "Girl Power!" whenever the girls have the upper hand.

* Although he's commonly associated with the meme, [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Fry]] never actually said "I see what yuu did there" or "Not sure if...." He was actually silent when he made the expression. Similarly, Zoidberg has never said "Why not Zoidberg?" in the series. He did, however, say it in an advert for the Futurama DVD box set ("If you're going to spend your cash on something, why not Zoidberg?"). During one convention where the script for ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' was read by the voice actors for ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', as they were discussing who should play Gollum, Creator/BillyWest suggested in Zoidberg's voice "Why not Zoidberg?".

* Due to the "MLG Montage Parody" internet phenomenon, the line "Smoke weed everyday" is heavily associated with Music/SnoopDogg. While Snoop is a well-known [[TheStoner stoner]], and he is featured on the song with that line, it was actually sung by the similarly-named rapper and singer Nate Dogg, and the line was TheStinger of the song "The Next Episode."

* Most people, if they own a small dog or cat, have held them up in the air while going [[Disney/TheLionKing "NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANTS INGONYAMA BAGITHI BABA"]], very, very dramatically. ([[CatsAreMean Reactions vary]].) In the actual song, "The Circle of Life", that's just the first line--Rafiki doesn't hold Simba aloft to the crowd until the final chorus, about three minutes in.

** ''Manga/{{DragonBall'': Oolong never wished for Bulma's panties. He wished for panties from a hot babe (or the world's most comfortable underwear in the dub), but there's no indication that they belonged to Bulma.

* The ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' character Tsuruya-san never says "nyoro~n". She says "nyoro", and not even very often. Her MemeticMutation {{webcomic}} alternate self, Churuya, says "nyoro~n" at the end of every strip. Churuya and Tsuruya even met in the Churuya comic, saying their exact {{Catch Phrase}}s, and people continue to attribute one to the other.

** Throughout the series, [[{{Kiai}} the cry]] of a vampire is usually spelled "Ureeeeeyyyy!" or "Reeeeeee!" It's almost never spelled "Wryyyyyy!", but MemeticMutation has made this the most common spelling. Additionally, that one flash video and MUGEN have made many people attribute the cry to Dio's "Road Roller" super attack from the [[VideoGame/JoJosBizarreAdventureHeritageForTheFuture Capcom fighting game]]. The sound bite is actually from Shadow Dio's "Charisma!" super. That being said, it has been officially transcribed as "WRYYYY!" in ''VideoGame/JojosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle'' in English alphabet even!

* Howard Cosell is often quoted as saying "Ladies and gentlemen, the Bronx is burning" in reaction to an aerial shot of a five alarm fire in the Bronx during Game 2 of the 1977 World Series. The supposed quote was further popularized by its use as the title of a book and subsequent {{ESPN}} miniseries. However, while Cosell did comment on the fire during ABC's telecast of the game, saying that no one was injured as a result, he never actually said "The Bronx is burning".

* The cry/chant of the Khorne worshipping Chaos Marines in Warhammer40000 is not "Kill! Maim! Burn!" Only Kharn (who, by the by, is crazy even by their standards, and will readily murder his allies) says it. The rest prefer "Blood for the Blood God!"
