Of course, there was Reggie's "My (puppet) body is ready." ready" and a brief scene where puppet Iwata stares at a bunch of bananas for several seconds. Iwata also acknowledged his MemeticHandGesture a few times, first when his puppet self was first revealed ("I will go ''directly'' to the stage"), and another brief scene where he does it repeatedly for no apparent reason, then somehow knocks puppet-Reggie over by directing the gesture at him.
*** A video promoting the Mii Fighters in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosForNintendo3DSWiiU'' ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS[=/=]=]UsefulNotes/WiiU'' showed Iwata using the gesture as an attack (resembling MakeMeWannaShout) during his battle with Reggie.
