to:

* While Optimus Prime's tendency to die in ''every'' universe is already memetic to the point that the wiki has it's own page for it, there's one that stands out; He voluntarily got killed because he accidentally hurted a virtual human, and was later ressurrected, as his brain was uploaded to a ''floppy disc''.

* SHUT UP, GRANDMA! Grandma, drink your prune juice!
* Sam's happy time. [[labelnote: Explanation]] The most infamous scene in the first movie, where Sam's '''absolutely''' [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents tactless]] mother blatantly asks if he's [[ADateWithRosiePalms pleasuring himself in the bathroom]]. It comes off as a line totally unwarranted for a franchise about giant transforming robot and shoehorned in so freakishly that [[AvoidTheDreadedGRating some claim it was just a cheap and crude tactic to make the movie look edgier from the source work.]][[/labelnote]]

to:

* SHUT UP, GRANDMA! Grandma, drink your prune juice!
GRAMMA!!/GRAMMA, DRINK YOUR PRUNE JUICE!! [[labelnote: Explanation]]From the first movie, both are lines Glen yells at his doddering grandma for annoying him.[[/labelnote]]

* DarthWiki/RuinedFOREVER[[labelnote: Explanation]]An exaggerative knee-jerk comment used by Transformers fans to describe changes to the franchise that they don't like. It warped into a whole new meme of its own which applies to other franchises at large and now has a DarthWiki article for its insidious nature of use.[[/labelnote]]

to:

* Damn you, Creator/MichaelBay! [[labelnote: Explanation]] From one of the behind-the-scenes features of the first movie's DVD, Michael Bay himself indulges in some SelfDeprecation by mentioning this was one of the things his acquired {{Hatedom}} said about him. Online forums were flaming him about heavily deviating from the standard formula and designs of ''Transformers'', with a not-so-subtle shot of his computer on the website Transformer World 2005 (implying the users there were the ones who originated this complaint), which all but tore into him for his initial design of Megatron's head (which led him to heavily modify it) and many of the radical changes he made to the franchise in general. It has come to encompass ''any'' complaint waged at Michael Bay for making a change to the franchise its fans disapprove of. [[/labelnote]]

* [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Trukk_not_munky TRUKK NOT MUNKY!!]]: This arose on {{Usenet}} during the 90s to mock people who complained about how ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' had Optimus Prime/al transform into an ape instead of a truck. It has since come to be used in reference to anybody who makes a knee-jerk complaint about a new incarnation not being a slavish copy of [[TransformersGeneration1 Generation 1]]

''{{Transformers}}'', due to its long history and multiple continuities, has spawned a host of memes. Please separate them not just by type of media, but series it was based on. Fandom and wiki memes can be separate.

* ''[[ComicBook/TransformersShatteredGlass Shattered Glass]]'' Ravage was originally created by [[WalkyVerse David Willis]] as a jokey reversal of the normal stealthy saboteur into an loud, energetic attention seeker who's addicted to social networking, and ended up catching on like crazy with his fans and spreading from there. (To the point where sometimes a person who knows almost nothing else about the continuity will still know about him.) Pictures of him waving and variations on his CatchPhrase of announcing "Can U C me totally waving at you!!!!!!" crop up regularly, and he's been given AscendedMeme status by becoming an official character and even having his own back-up strip series in the official Club Magazine.

* [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Pokeformers Pokeformers]] was a completely unironic nickname for ''[[Anime/TransformersArmada Armada]]'', by people who disliked the focus on trying to [[GottaCatchEmAll collect all the Mini-Cons]] and sought to take the series down a few pegs by comparing it to ''{{Pokemon}}''.

* [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/JaAm JaAm]] is a reference to a silly fan edit of a pack-in mini-comic written in three languages, and thus which had tiny writing and stilted dialogue. A fan edited it to be about a retarded Hot Shot being obsessed with jam, complete with bizarre capitalization. This exploded on the fandom, and imitators have popped up every so often since then.

** For a while, various helicopter Transformers were called "jam coptors." This stopped when Armada ended, came back briefly for ''Galaxy Force'''s release in the West as ''Cybertron'' due to the presence of [[KidAppealCharacter Jolt]] in the cartoon, and mercifully died out soon after.

* Thanks to the [[TransformersTheMovie animated movie]], fans tend to reference Stan Bush's "The Touch" whenever a character does something cool. "Dare" is a popular second choice.

** When Dinobot of WesternAnimation/BeastWars beat Soundwave, Grimlock, and others in the [[EnsembleDarkhorse Transformers Fan Hall of Fame poll]], this spawned the meme "SOUNDWAVE INFERIOR. DINOBOT SUPERIOR." and similar terms.

* DavidKaye adlibbed Beast Megatron adding a rather gloaty "yeeess" to the end of many sentences. This was very memorable and catchy, and fans constantly add it to the end of sentences referencing either Megatron or Kaye. It's also persistently misquoted as "Yessssss."

** Logic [[labelnote:Explanation]] Shockwave summed up in one word. Used whenever he shows up in anything.

** And now, thanks to a misspelling on [[TransformersAnimated Animated]] Straxus' [[CharacterBlog Formspring]], Straxmus was coined as a holiday by [[WordOfGod Derrick Wyatt]] in which people insult and annoy Straxus, who's played by a fan as an {{Expy}} of [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Morbo the Annhilator]].
* Fire-retardant foam is the most powerful weapon against Decepticons. (Explanation: In "The Ultimate Doom, Part One", the Decepticons invade the Ark. Nothing can take them down... except for the ship's fire-retardant foam security device, which shorts them out and freaks Megatron into retreating. Since then, fire-retardant foam has reached MemeticBadass status in the fandom.)
** Becomes an AscendedMeme in WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime, where a fire extinguisher rapidly becomes Jack's WeaponOfChoice after the episode "Scrapheap".
* Airachnid, the sadistic huntress, is characterized very differently in Japan than she is in the west, which has lead to several memes.
** '''JACK-U CHAN!''' (Airachnid in the Japanese dub isn't a sadistic killer, but a boy-crazy girly girl who wants to kidnap Jack. The Engrish pronunciation of his name only adds to the funny.)
** New Rule: We cannot complain about English dubs as long as this exists. (Explanation: A popular YouTube comment. Again, Airachnid's radically different characterization in Japan. This time it caused comparisons to stereotypically poor English dubs.)
** ALL RIGHT WHO GAVE HER CRACK? *glares at Starscream shrinking away* (Explanation: Another popular YouTube comment in regards to the Japanese dub.)
** The Koreans... Got it right... (Explanation: The Korean dub didn't make any radical changes to Airachnid's character.)
* In ''[[TransformersAnimated Glorious Transformers Animated]]'', Lugnut's glorious habit of gloriously referring to the great and glorious Megatron, (glorious leader of the glorious Decepticons) as well, glorious, has gloriously attained this glorious status, for the glory of MEGATRON!!

*** [[AscendedMeme Ascended]] in a couple ways. Besides making it the official name of the attack in an Animated tie-in comic, the P.O.K.E has turned up as an upgrade in [[TransformersWarForCybertron WFC]] and [[TransformersFallOfCybertron FoC]]. [[RuleOfFunny It's apparently still in alpha testing due to problems with the "kill everything" feature.]]

** A similar case with Shattered Glass Grimlock. The Shattered Expectations comic portrayed Grimlock as superintelligent. At the time, Sg Grimlock was just a slavering monster. They eventually upgraded him into his current GeniusBruiser status as a result of the fans liking that persona.

* Steve the Vehicon [[labelnote: Explanation]] Originally, just one Vehicon who was slapped by Starscream was nicknamed Steve after fans [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rQOEpxCSyw likening him]] to Steve from the Cheerios "Shut up, Steve" commercials. This soon spread to the point that ''every'' Vehicon is named Steve, or has some other human name, like Bill or Frank. Used in conjunction with, well, the Vehicons. Also, for some reason, he's supposedly head over heels in love with Starscream.[[/labelnote]]

* "Darn that Soundwave. EYUUUUUUAAAAAAAAAGH". [[labelnote: Explanation]]An infamous line from the SoBadItsGood Malaysian dub of ''Transformers Headmasters'', specifically the episode "The Mystery of Planet Master". The line is spoken by Galvatron after he sees Soundwave destroyed at the hands of Blast- sorry, "Billy.".[[/labelnote]] This has become so popular amongst Transfans that when a common joke among Transfans is to yell "Darn that x, EYUUUUAAAGGH" whenever any character dies.

[[labelnote:explanation]]From the episode "I Risk My Life For Earth": Scorponok sees the Headmasters having trouble against his Decepticon army on a TV screen, then sees Fortress Maximus enter the fray.

* Skywarp: Decepticon Stair-Pusher-Downer. [[labelnote: Explanation]] Skywarp is established as a prankster with teleportation powers, but since he's the DumbMuscle of his TerribleTrio all his pranks are malicious, but in a puerile way--ergo, the fandom latched onto him pushing people down stairs as his 'joke' of choice. Because come on, a surprise push down a flight of stairs is ''hilarious''. [[/labelnote]]
* Megatron is old because he is ''hard!'' [[labelnote:Explanation]] An [[AccidentalInnuendo Accidental Innuendo]] from the British childrens book ''Laserbeak's Fury'' had Megatron say to a mocking Starscream that he is old because he is hard (using the British term hard as synonym for Tough) but was joked by American fans who claimed Megatron was sexually aroused and became a popular internet tag in the late 1990's/early 2000's.

* The "Bonecrusher Hates X" meme, where X is whatever you want it to be. As befits a MerchandiseDriven fandom, it comes from a line in the profile on the back of [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Bonecrusher_%28Movie%29 Bonecrusher]]'s toy packaging that says he "hates everything". It started with buses, as he was seen smashing through one in [[Film/{{Transformers}} the movie]] trailer. This sometimes crosses over into a very similar meme involving Francis from ''VideoGame/Left4Dead''. It got so ubiquitous on the TF Wiki that the mods had to impose limits on its usage.

It should be noted that the song was ''The Touch.'' The line is somewhat ironic considering the "Shockwave's Aim" meme above.[[/labelnote]]
