{{Nickelodeon}} GameShow that had two teams of two kids identifying pictures on a large 16-panel screen. Each round featured a main picture, parts of which were slowly revealed as teams answered questions correctly.

The first round was called "Connect the Dots". A series of dots were shown on the screen. For every question a team answered, they received $20 and chose one of the sixteen panels, and the dots in that box would be connected to form part of the outline of the object in the picture. Guessing the picture correctly awarded $50, guessing incorrectly cost a team $20, and not guessing at all did not affect a team's score.

* DoubleTheDollars: Partially; questions were raised from $20 in the first round to $40 in the second. The pictures, however, were more like one-and-a-half times the dollars ($50 in round 1, $75 in round 2), with wrong guesses always costing $20 (except in a sudden death situation; see below).

* FollowTheLeader: The "ID something from behind a wall of gradually-revealed squares" aspect smacks a bit of ''Series/CatchPhrase'', though they use plain pictures, not pictorial [[VisualPun Visual Puns]].
* NintendoHard: Mega Memory's time limit in Season 2 was ''brutal.'' 35 seconds to remember 9 pictures? That's asking a ''lot.'' On at least one occasion, a team got all nine answers in a row and still managed to finish with only one or two seconds left on the clock.

* BonusSpace: The "Power Surges," which offered the team that found it a chance at a (usually) [[TimedMission timed mini-game]] for one question's worth of money. Failure at the mini-game handed the money ''and'' the opportunity to guess the picture to the other team.

Failure at the mini-game handed the money ''and'' the opportunity to guess the picture to the other team. Especially helpful in the first round, as a Power Surge showed an actual piece of the image, and not just a dotted outline.

* NoBudget: They slashed the budget big-time for Season 2. The game was played for points instead of dollars, the first six Mega Memory pictures were cut in half to $100 apiece - not to mention the drastic cut to the time limit as mentioned above.
** This was because, with the exception of [[DoubleDare1986 Family Double Dare]], this was the biggest "big money" game show Nick produced, as the total haul in Season 1 could exceed $5,000-$6,000. Season 2's haul was about $3,000-$4,000; granted, most of that was prizes, as the only cash that could be earned was $600, compared to the $1,200+ in Season 1.
