* 0.9 [[labelnote:Explanation]]Originated from the set Captain Zack vs komorikiri at supermajor Genesis 4, komorikiri realised that the set he had played was on 0.9 knockback, which was why some of his damage confirms and kill confirms were not working. Afterwards it was found that the previous set, Dabuz vs Zero was also played on 0.9. Commonly used in twitch chat to describe a move that should have killed, or a player living longer than he should be. May also be used in a match involving Sonic and Bayonetta as a reference to the set.[[/labelnote]]

** [[DullSurprise "Good!"]][[labelnote:Explanation]]One of female Corrin's victory lines where she literally just says "good" in an incredibly [[NarmCharm narmy]] and monotone way. Because of the sheer randomness (it has no reference to VideoGame/FireEmblemFates itself) of the line, it's been subjected to plenty of jokes and mocking from fans.[[/labelnote]]

** "Back Slash!" "Air Slash!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The names of both Shulk's side and up special respectively (two of his original arts from his home game). Even though it's mainly for his British accent as mentioned in the above notes, a small number of circles tend to treat the names of such moves as [[DoubleEntendre naughty]] [[FreudWasRight jokes]]… but it gets even worse with his "I'm really feeling it" quote up above, AND the fact that he has a shirtless costume…[[/labelnote]]

** '''MONADO BOY'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]In his reveal trailer, Shulk is called like that by [[MechanicalMonster Metal Face]], an antagonist from ''Xenoblade Chronicles'' who sometimes refers to Shulk as this nickname in the original game. Likely due the the rather obscure status of the series (making this trailer the first contact with the character for a large number of players) and the silliness of the nickname pronounced by the [[LargeHam hammy]] Mechon, it subsequently became a popular way to call Shulk in the ''SSB'' community.[[/labelnote]]

* After Bayonetta's reveal, and the appearance of Kirby's Copy Ability from her, a lot of tumblr fan-artists made fanart of the little pink puffball with Bayonetta's long legs. Not all of it Safe for Work. This has now expanded into Kirby donning Zero Suit Samus' legs, Palutina's legs and even Waluigi's legs.

** "If you need to learn how to talk to a lady, ask [[YourMom your mum]]."[[labelnote:Explanation]]Bayonetta says this during one of her taunts, being taken from one of her taunts in ''Bayonetta 2''. Many fans have associated this line with her taunting fighters who have {{Missing Mom}}s, ''especially'' Lucas, who's mother's death was a major source of TearJerker in [[VideoGame/{{Mother 3}} his home game]].

** Also popular, is claiming your opponent just got "[[BlackComedyRape Fisted]]" after killing them with Bayonetta's forward or up Smash. "You just got fisted!" or "Oops, guess I just fisted you!" and the like.
* $5.99 [[labelnote:explanation]]This stems from complaints about Bayonetta being overpowered, and potentially the best character in the game. Her DLC costs $5.99, so people use it to complain about the game being pay-to-win. Similar complaints have been put out for Cloud and Ryu, although the latter's DifficultButAwesome learning curve eases the pressure.[[/labelnote]]

* "[[ComplacentGamingSyndrome No items]], [[VideoGame/StarFox Fox only]], [[AbridgedArenaArray Final Destination]]."[[labelnote:Explanation]]A jab at tournament-level ''Super Smash Bros.'' (''Melee'') players, who generally turn off items to avoid random elements, keep up on character tiers ([[VideoGame/StarFox Fox and Falco]] typically being top-tier in ''Melee''), and play only a subset of available stages to avoid unfair advantages or more random elements--Final Destination is often a favorite due to being a featureless flat plane. These efforts at making the ''Super Smash Bros.'' series more [[CompetitiveBalance balanced]] for TournamentPlay are dismissed by some players as taking the fun away from the game. Note: The phrase is a snowclone of the unrelated horror movie's tagline.[[/labelnote]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcWLT8a6iqk For Glory Mac Mode.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Short after release, Little Mac being fairly simple to use and perfect for Final Destination-styled stages, became one of the most used characters on For Glory mode (and by consequence, one of the most hated).[[/labelnote]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6vqWxTku8I [=FalcoMaster3000=]]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A joke was made at a competitive Melee tournament that, based on the sheer popularity of Fox and Falco in competitive tournaments, that there is a line of "[[=FalcoMasters=]]", genetically engineered humans that are made for the specific purpose of playing Fox and Falco to perfection. This caused a player, wearing a mask and sunglasses to cover his face, not saying a single word, and only putting down his name as "[[=FalcoMaster3000=]]", to show up at a professional Canadian Smash tournament and win with Fox, Falco and Marth. He went nine hours without taking off the mask to talk or even eat, and nobody knows his identity.[[/labelnote]]

* Isai is too good. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Joel Isai Alvarado, also known as Isai is a former Super Smash Bros. Melee player and currently only plays the original Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo 64. While Isai mains Pikachu, he frequently sandbags tournaments with the entire roster and has basically created the modern metagame and is so far ahead of the other competitors. This can be seen when Isai won Apex 2014 using only Jigglypuff, which resulted in her moving up two spots in the tier list and being at the top of mid-tier. All of these factors combined are how this meme was given birth.[[/labelnote]]
* Zero-to-death combo. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In response to Bayonetta's aerial combo game being considered one of biggest [[GameBreaker game breakers]] in the entire series, with complainers citing that even an only halfway-decent Bayonetta player can juggle an enemy with ease and KO about any percent on any stage, although most infamously, being able to KO an opponent stock from zero percent in one combo.[[/labelnote]]
* HE READ THAT ROLL! [[labelnote:Explanation]] In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH8YrQJfwew&ab_channel=shitaki08&t=7m58s EVO 2013 Loser's Finals (Mango (Fox) vs. Hungrybox (Jigglypuff))]], Mango pulls off one of the most clutch and astounding hard reads ever, reading Hungrybox's roll and charging an up smash, to win the set 2-0 and advance. It quickly becomes known by some as the "Up Smash Heard 'Round The World". [[/labelnote]]
* Ganondorf's Up Tilt [[labelnote:Explanation]] Bizarro Flame, known as one of the best Ganondorf players in the world, has a tendency to show off extremely inefficient but extremely stylish combos to KO his opponents, including one famous one where he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gy2FHHG0TGc&t=2m54s tech chases to combo 5 down airs and the competitively useless up tilt to KO SSBMStrain]].[[/labelnote]]
* 20XX [[labelnote:Explanation]] The competetive Smash community dreams of a time known as 20XX, where everybody in Melee plays FOX at TAS levels of precision, with battles only being decided by controller port priority, leading to the evolution of the Rock Paper Scissors metagame to decide matches. Leads to the obvious chants of "20XX IS NOW!" whenever somebody pulls off a ridiculously stylish move as Fox. [[/labelnote]]
* Multishining [[labelnote:Explanation]] Fox can actually use his reflector multiple times in succession, but it is very hard to pull off. Of course, it is basically useless, but you will see every single newbie try to master the technique instead of more useful ones, like [=SHFFLing=] aerials or shine turnarounds. [[/labelnote]]
* Jigglypuff's back aerial [[labelnote:Explanation]] Jigglypuff's back aerial is famous for having a crazily disjointed hitbox that extends ridiculously long and does a fair amount of knockback, allowing for the Wall of Pain combo, where an opponent is comboed with aerials off the screen. [[/labelnote]]
* Marth's grab range [[labelnote:Explanation]] To save you a long explanation, Marth's grab range is longer than Yoshi's. Who extends his tongue out of his face to grab the opponent, compared to the little grab Marth does.[[/labelnote]]
* Crazy Peach luck [[labelnote:Explanation]] Whenever a Peach player in a match has crazy luck and pulls out multiple stitchfaces (which do a high amount of damage and knockback) or multiple bob-ombs (which are exceptionally rare), expect the commentators to be in complete shock about the favorable randomness. [[/labelnote]]
* Wobbling [[labelnote:Explanation]] The Wobble, an infinite combo named after Ice Climbers player Wobbles, who saw great use of the technique when he placed 2nd at EVO 2013 with great usage of it, occurs when one Ice Climber grabs and pummels the opponent while the other cClimber repeatedly attacks them after the pummels with a forward or down tilt. It is an inescapable combo, leading to a guaranteed stock if done correctly. It has generated extreme controversy in the community over whether it should be banned, but most major tournaments allow it because it does take some skill to pull off and all that is needed its to not fall into any of the setups. [[/labelnote]]
* EASY MONEY!!! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Famous quote from Ganondorf player Bizarro Flame when challenged to a money match. When asked what would happen in the match, Bizarro gave a beautiful re-enactment of Ganondorf's up tilt. Quickly spread due to its meme-iness. [[/labelnote]]
* [=SF5=] Smash 4 - Serge (Lucario) Vs. Darkfall (Link) [=SSB4=] Tournament - Smash Wii U HD [[labelnote:Explanation]] On July 30th 2016, almost 12 thousand videos on [=VGBootCamp's=] YouTube channel had their name changed to the same title named after a match in the Mexican national Smash Factor 5; not to get confused with the common terminology for the [=SF5=] abbreviation, Capcom's fighting game Street Fighter V. This was confirmed as a mistake by [=GimR=], as the VGBC crew were recommended an experienced uploader by many sources, however the uploader had messed up on his first video.

* Sakurai Bias.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A complaint towards Sakurai's alleged favoritism or dislike of certain franchises determining the characters on the roster. Often cited as the reason ''Kid Icarus'' has three playable characters (as Sakurai directed ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising''), more than some long-established franchises that [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff have more popularity outside of Japan]] (eg. ''Metroid''), but is often used to complain about any character choice or exclusion without any particular reasoning.[[/labelnote]]
* Sakurai Magic.[[labelnote: Explanation]] When [=TheJWittz=] was shown Cloud Strife's character trailer, this was the explanation he was given as for how Cloud got into Smash (despite his subseries being generally Sony exclusive, and, despite being an iconic UsefulNotes/PlayStation mascot, he wasn't put in [[VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale Sony's own Mascot fighter]])[[/labelnote]]

* Brawl- Warlock Punch [[labelnote:Explanation]] Brawl Minus is aimed to balance Brawl by making every single character completely overpowered. Ganondorf's neutral special, the Warlock Punch, was edited to do 666% damage and essentially be a one-hit-KO, as it cannot be teched out of, cannot be usefully redirected with SDI or DI, is very hard to roll out of, has too long of a hitbox to be spotdodged, cannot be perfect shielded, cannot be countered, reflected, or interrupted in any way, as Ganondorf has super armor during the punch. The only way to dodge it is to use super armor, which is only really viable as Bowser, or if you can exploit a frame-perfect double jump as Yoshi. It has been regarded as so egregiously bad, that talking about it on the Brawl Minus forums will immediately start a flame war and will get you a Warning.[[/labelnote]]
* Brawl- "lol Spring" combo [[labelnote:Explanation]] Recent discussion as to what changes should be made in the upcoming version 4.0 has landed the forum in a discussion about Sonic. Sonic can essentially get a guaranteed KO on almost every single character from extremely low percentages, most characters being able to be zero-to-death-ed with two moves. The combo consists of a down air off of a ledge immediately canceled by sending a spring out. It is impossible to dodge, as the player is still in hitstun and the move cannot be SDI'd toward the walls to be wallteched or tech walljumped,, and even if the down air is meteor-cancelled, the spring will immediately spike the character downward instead, and the Sonic can recover with the spring. This has been regarded as an extremely cheap combo, with many calling for Sonic's nerfing.[[/labelnote]]

* ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'': Ever since the first game came out it's been a popular trend on art sites to make character hats for Kirby. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Since ''Kirby's Adventure'', and for most subsequent games in the series, when Kirby uses his neutral B, the inhale, [[PowerCopying copies his opponent's neutral special]] and gains a hat(since ''Kirby Super Star'') or some form of attire based off the character.[[/labelnote]]

** After Ike's new, ''Radiant Dawn''-based appearance in the fourth game, plenty of jokes have been made about how he has bulked up since Brawl. The Japanese fandom has taken to calling this model of him "Gorilla Ike". He is usually grouped up with Mega Swampert from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'' and Knuckles from ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' due to the similar buffed up appearances.

** The other taunt, "COME ON! STEP IT UP!" gets this a lot too.
* "HIYAYAYAYA!!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''Brawl'', Pit's Kiai scream (with length varying) when using his side special, Angel Ring, became heavily associated with him due to how effective of a SpamAttack Angel Ring is as a move and how annoying it can be. In some circles it went to become the move's FanNickname. For better or worse Angel Ring was replaced with Upperdash Arm in the fourth game.[[/labelnote]]

** "Wait, [insert minor complaint here]!? Better {{nerf}} Greninja." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Similar to ''Memes/LeagueOfLegends'' and its "Better nerf Irelia" meme. There's a perception that Greninja has received nerfs in ''every patch since launch'' ([[DeadUnicornTrope He was only nerfed considerably in 1.0.4 and has actually only been buffed ever since]]) even though Greninja isn't out of line, while other characters remain stronger than him. It has since become a joke that whenever a huge bug is found, the patch that fixes it will include a nerf to Greninja thrown in for good measure.[[/labelnote]]
