* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': The "Are you a boy or a girl?" meme is most commonly associated with Professor Oak. The problem is that in the first generation of Pokemon games, there were no gender options and as a result he never asks the question. He does ask the player their gender in the remakes, but even then the line is actually two separate questions ("Are you a boy? Or are you a girl?") rather than as a single question.

** The line that shows up when encountering a wild Pokemon is "A wild [species name] appeared!" (or "Wild [species name] appeared!" in the first three generations), not "A wild [species name] '''has'''' appeared!", "A wild [species name] appear'''s'''!", or any permutation thereof. Even official Pokemon media has made this mistake.

* Many parents who complained about a line Kakie the Cake Monster says in ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvania2'', as well as websites such as Screen It!, misquoted it as "And remember, diabetes is the scariest monster of all". The actual line is "Slow down, Wuzzlelumplebum! The scariest monster of all is diabetes!".

* Keiji Inafune, designer of [[VideoGame/MightyNo9]] is infamously quoted as having responded "It's better than nothing" during a stream in response to the negative reactions to the game. This isn't actually what Inafune said himself, but an added comment from the translator.

* Shigeru Miyamoto was misquoted when he was asked about his opinion over the visual style of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry''; while he did say (at the time) that people will enjoy a mediocre game if the graphics are good, he never said it for ''Donkey Kong Country'' and he had actually helped with the development of the game as well. What he actually meant by this comment was that he was annoyed that his bosses were interfering with the development of ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'' [[ExecutiveMeddling by constantly trying to force him to mimic DKC's visual style]]. Many years later, when he was asked about the incident, Miyamoto went on the record to say that he actually enjoyed the game.

* [[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?".
