!!!Punch-Out
* [[VideoGame/PunchOut "Nigga stole my bike!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The break sections between circuits in ''Punch-Out!!'' show Little Mac training by jogging behind his black trainer Doc as he rides a bike. MemeticMutation changed the context of the image. Surprisingly, this became an AscendedMeme ([[ThinkOfTheCensors though understandably minus the racial slur]]) in the Wii game, where, between rounds, Doc will occasionally joke that he'll steal Mac's bike.[[/labelnote]]

** The very day the first preview trailer for the Switch came out, people began [[https://twitter.com/GuerrillaDawg/status/789126471944171520 comparing]] the look of the console's Joy-Cons when attached to the controller bridge to a dog's face; this has led to a lot of jokes and fanart revolving around the Switch being a cute little puppy.

The "Switch dog" is an unofficial mascot for the system.

* Hello Darkness, My Old Friend [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]]A lot of fans were excited to see the return of Dark Matter in ''Planet Robobot''- his swordsman form from ''Dream Land 2'', no less!-, even if it was just a clone.[[/lablnote]]

** Apparently, Nintendo made the Switch's carts taste nasty to discourage young children from eating them. [[SchmuckBait Approximately everyone who hears this feels an irresistible urge to test it immediately.]]

** There are a number of jokes about how [[CrackIsCheaper expensive]] the console's accessories (and some of its games, and online play) are.
*** [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI BOY, THIS IS REALLY EXPENSIVE!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]An already memetic line resurfaced with an edited screencap showcasing some of the aforementioned pricey accessories.[[/labelnote]]

** ''Click!''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Promotional material for the console open with a distinctive clicking sound effect (mirroring the sound of inserting the Switch into its dock, or attaching the Joy-Cons to the Switch).[[/labelnote]]
** Counting ice cubes.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Nintendo, for whatever reason, introduced the Joy-Cons' HD Rumble feature by showing how it could reproduce the sensation of ice cubes being dropped into a glass, right down to the number.[[/labelnote]]



** And then there's "What's wrong with you?"

** %%** And then there's "What's wrong with you?"



** This phrase is common when Nintendo fans get hyped, say, before a [[Nintendo Direct]] livestream.
* At E3 2008, a Nintendo employee named Cammie left a pretty bad taste in all the gamers' mouths due to her overenthusiastic personality about casual games. She even told a personal story on how she broke her wrist when she tried to snowboard. Literally, within seconds, her and and the word wrist became memes on several forums.

** Non-Specific Action Figure [[labelnote:Explanation]]Nintendo's pre-E3 2012 announcement video featured a demonstration of the UsefulNotes/WiiU's capabilities via a nerdy video gamer's struggle against zombies. His only friend (prior to using the WiiU) is a bizarre custom action figure that he refers to by the above name. Viewers took a shine to it immediately, to the point of demanding its appearance in the next ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''.[[/labelnote]]
** Zombified Reggie [[labelnote:Explanation]]A demonstration of the WiiU had Reggie making a zombified version of himself. Cue his terrified reaction.[[/labelnote]]

** "Please under'''Stand'''." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Some Nintendo Fans who enjoy Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure have cracked jokes about Iwata having a Stand. This has become more widespread after E3 2014's Nintendo Direct video with a short, but impressive fight scene between Iwata and Reggie meant to announce more information about the upcoming ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''.[[/labelnote]]

** Awkward translator[[labelnote:Explanation]]The Nintendo Switch presentation was translated into English live by three interpreters. Two of the interpreters were doing OK throughout the presentation. But one interpreter was doing OK at first (''1-2-Switch'' segment), then a bit flat (''VideoGame/Splatoon2'' segment), then Creator/Suda51 came up and he totally lost it. Got even worse when Nintendo released a job opening on Twitter for a translator, leading many to believe he got fired.[[/labelnote]]
