* "Therefore, every May 9th will be celebrated as [[http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Piccolo_Day Piccolo Day]]." [[labelnote:Explanation]]After briefly taking over the world in the original ''Dragon Ball'', King Piccolo declares that May 9th will be celebrated as a holiday dedicated to himself which will end with him destroying a city decided in a lottery. (the dub changed the date to 13th) Sites like Tumblr leapt upon this meme with repostings every, you guessed it, May 9th. Ironically, in real life, Japan declared May 9th "Goku Day."[[/labelnote]]

* This [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CMAjoe0UAAIPiF7.jpg still of Goku]] has been making the rounds lately. It's not actually OffModel, being an in-between frame designed to make the animation look more fluid, a common technique in WesternAnimation does. [[https://31.media.tumblr.com/1931f026cfecebad4ee5f703e2582705/tumblr_nsy32blr6M1rvkwl5o1_400.gif Here it is in gif form]].
* "Yamcha, no!" or "It's Yamcha's fault if the world's destroyed" in response to the preview clip in ''Super'' where Yamcha gives Beerus a good-natured slap on the back and seems to accidentally set him off. [[NeverTrustATrailer Turns out the preview showed the events out of order; just as it was in the movie, Buu pissed off Beerus by not sharing pudding.]] HilariousInHindsight as Yamcha actually sets off Beerus in a later episode for blurting out the secret about Monaka in front of Goku.
* Vegeta cooking for Beerus in ''Super'' sparks some jokes from ''Jump'' Fans by renaming it ''"[[Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma Shokugeki no Vegeta]]"''.
* "Broly Cameo!" because when Vegeta initially went Super Saiyan after Bulma was struck, his eyes were pure white like Broly's.
* Goku and Vegeta with full on beards in ''Super'' have become quite popular among the fandom to the point that some wished Goku kept it.
* "This makes ''Dragon Ball GT'' look amazing!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Some fans have used ''GT'', considered to be the weakest series of the franchise, to shame ''Super''. However, polls have shown that most fans prefer ''Super'' over ''GT'' by far, making these complaints just a very vocal minority.[[/labelnote]]
* The Goku & Vegeta Show [[labelnote:Explanation]]A tongue-in-cheek nickname for ''Super's'' overt focus on the two characters in question[[/labelnote]]
* Goku is Wrestling/JohnCena. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Some fans think Goku gets too much focus, CharacterShilling, and the show goes out of its way to make sure he's number #1.[[/labelnote]]
* Vegeta is the {{Jobber}}. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The tongue-in-cheek idea that Vegeta exists only to lose and make Goku look good.[[/labelnote]]
* Gohan is the [[MemeticLoser Saiyan Yamcha]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The fandom's bitterness over Gohan's BadassDecay and the way he was treated in the Resurrection 'F' Saga. The comparison to Yamcha is because Yamcha himself is seen as the biggest MemeticLoser in the series ever since he was killed by a Saibamen.[[/labelnote]]
* Goku is faster than time! [[labelnote:Explanation]] The fandom's reaction after Goku out-speeds Hit, who froze him in time, while using Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan/Kaio-Ken combo.[[/labelnote]]
* Is Broly back? [[labelnote:Explanation]] Early in ''Super's'' run, Broly was a very requested character for the western fandom to be brought into ''Super'' since he's seen as a [[MemeticBadass powerful and vicious villain]], something fans claim that ''Super'' have been missing. It has become an inside joke within the fandom to ask or say that any new character is Broly.[[/labelnote]]

* "We are the Evil Universe!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''Dragonball Super'', when Universe 6 was shown to be a "twin" of Universe 7 (the "home" universe for the heroes), this combined with the fact that both the Saiyans and Freeza's counterpart in Universe 6 are benevolent, heroic characters, the joke came to be that obviously THIS universe is the EvilCounterpart of the two.[[/labelnote]]

* "[[ThatCameOutWrong You're going to give me some pleasure right?]]" [[labelnote:explanation]]Perfect Cell's pre-match taunt in the English dub of the 1997 video game ''Dragon Ball (GT): Final Bout''.[[/labelnote]]

* "Frieza decided to train for the first time in his life." [[labelnote:explanation]] The official explanation Frieza get to [[TookALevelInBadass take a level in badass]] in the new film is because he actually decides to train, making him the first villain to unlock his power the old-fashioned way. Made all the more ridiculous by the sheer amount of power he gains from it, as he goes from being weaker than a basic Super Saiyan to being more powerful than a Godly Super Saiyan.[[/labelnote]]

* "It's [[OverNineThousand OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAAND]]!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] One of Vegeta's lines from [[Creator/TheOceanGroup the first dub]] of ''Dragon Ball Z'', refering to Goku's PowerLevel after his first [[BackFromTheDead return from the dead]]. Popular for its {{Narm}}, and used to describe any situation in which something is unexpectedly large, though it wavers between popularity and DiscreditedMeme every few years.[[/labelnote]]

It should be noted that the original line was "Over ''eight'' thousand" (''Hassen ijou da!''), but it was changed to 9000 in dubs to better fit Vegeta's lip movements.[[/labelnote]]

* "That one was free." [[labelnote:explanation]]After Imperfect Cell gets a quick shot in at Vegeta, the latter utters this line...as we are treated to a close-up on his smirking lips with a trickle of blood running down from them, which he then wipes off. Many fans have commented on how [[FreudWasRight suggestive this scene is.]][[/labelnote]]
