[[caption-width-right:225:[[ReadingsAreOffTheScale Ask me about Kakarot's power level]]. Go ahead... just ''ask''.]]

There are over 9000 [[MemeticMutation memes]] in ''Franchise/DragonBall''. Some examples:

----
''Please add entries in the following format:''
* The meme. [=[=][labelnote: Explanation]]The explanation behind the meme.[[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Like this.[[/labelnote]]
----

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Dragon Ball ]]
* [[KamehameHadoken KAAA]]-[[PunctuatedForEmphasis MEEE]] [[CallingYourAttacks HAAA]]-[[SignatureMove MEEE]] [[LargeHam HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]If you were a kid during the 90s or 2000s (It depends on the country you lived when the series became popular), if you didn't replicate the moves and LargeHam of the series most iconic attack at the playground a few (MILLION) times, you most probably did see other kids do it.[[/labelnote]]
* "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". The original joke was likely intentional on Toriyama's part as May 9th can be read as Go (5) Ku (9).[[/labelnote]]
* "This isn't over yet. It'll continue for a bit longer." [[labelnote:Explanation]] Muten Roushi says this [[BreakingTheFourthWall to the readers]] at the end of the 23rd Tenka'ichi Budokai in the manga. Which then went to run for six more years.[[/labelnote]]
* '''''ALL OF THEM?!''''' [[labelnote:explanation]]During their battle at the tournament near the end of ''Dragon Ball'', Piccolo seemingly kills Goku with a ki blast that tears through Goku's chest...only for Goku to rise, alive and well, and mocks Piccolo for amazingly missing all of his vital organs with that shot. Piccolo responds with a loud and disbelieving "ALL OF THEM?!"[[/labelnote]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Dragon Ball Z ]]
* [[GodNeverSaidThat Toriyama planned to end it at the ________ arc.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The alleged "Intended" Ending of Dragon Ball Z has become a common perpetuated Urban Legend among Dragon Ball fans.[[/labelnote]]
* "It's [[ReadingsAreOffTheScale 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. It should be noted that the original line was "Over ''eight'' thousand" (''Hassen ijou da!''), and in fact, but it was changed to 9000 in the English dubs to better fit Vegeta's lip movements (in fact, the Latin-American Spanish dub at least kept it in 8000).[[/labelnote]]
** New life was breathed into this after Anonymous got Oprah to say "over 9000 penises" on live TV.
** This is also combined occasionally with ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'', thanks to the game actually letting you level up to 9999.
** Even ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has gotten in on the act by adding in an achievement called It's Over Nine Thousand! It's not widely known at this point since getting to 9000+ achievement points is easier said than done. However it is in there.
** ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' eventually [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrGuJT1Pj5M caught on as well.]]
** When the SH Figuarts was announced, a number of American fans suggested that it include a scouter-crushing hand accessory. The distributor, Bluefin, agreed, and the figure will indeed come with it.
** One of the most common instances of vandalism at Wiki/TheOtherWiki is to add Vegeta's line, or some variant or reference thereof, to the article for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9001 9001]].
* "I hope my body can take it." [[labelnote:Explanation]] The various dubs are absolutely ''filled to the brim'' with AccidentalInnuendo, and fans love to mock them and/or put them in WebAnimation/{{Youtube Poop}}s.[[/labelnote]]
** "The balls are inert."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnxF3McTkoo&feature=fvwrel Frieza wants to caress the balls.]]
* "This isn't even my final form!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A quote [[BeamMeUpScotty mistakenly attributed]] to Freeza prior to one of his transformations in the Namek saga. Often accompanies pictures that resemble a disturbing or otherwise bizarre transformation and/or SuperMode of some sort; sometimes used to accompany images of things that resemble Freeza.[[/labelnote]]
* Vegeta is a FountainOfMemes even by the standards of such a memetic series, "Over 9000" is only the most popular.
** "I'M A WARRIOR! Not some... VARIETY OF FLOWER!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the Creator/FUNimation dub, he makes this comment about the pink shirt he was forced to wear during the Trunks Saga.[[/labelnote]]
** "THEN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE IS GOING TO DIE!"
** "I AM THE PRINCE OF ALL SAIYANS!"
** Servant woman, bring me a drying cloth!! [[labelnote:Explanation]] While Vegeta is showering, he asks Bulma (servant woman) for a drying cloth. As Bulma is not in any way a servant, she is not pleased with this. [[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZq3An7Tf_w "SAD FOR YOOOOOOOUUUUUUU!!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Like "Over 9000", anytime Vegeta inexplicably draws out his vowels (to better match the lip flaps) is about five times more likely to become a meme.[[/labelnote]]
*** "You understaaaaaaaaaand?"
*** "YOU DO NOT HAVE TRUE PRIIIIIIIIIIDE!!"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zXRk69a7-c "I do a lot of push-ups and sit-ups. And I drink plenty of juice."]]
*** Vegeta's morning breakfast includes the aforementioned plenty of juice, punks, Cell and very flat pancakes. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In previous episodes, some of his [[BadassBoast badass boasts]] have included having punks, like [[WouldHurtAChild Gohan, whom he was threatening]], for breakfast, having Cell for breakfast (to coincide with him defeating him at the Cell Games) and liking his pancakes very flat, which is what he said to Goku during their first battle...[[BlackComedy while he was stepping on his legs after transforming into Oozaru]].[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WW2_u5GhgW8 "Being a hero is highly overrated."]]
*** "Meh."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGBQs1SlVqY Vegeta vs. Paperclips]]
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdGa-2BSFiI Holy cosmos that's one whopper of a lizard!]]''
** If Ocean Vegeta wants your opinion, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBm8ip4FR5s he'll give it to you!]]
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCfOSoVeCps Whoa! Mondo cool!]]" "Yes, that's right boys. Mondo cool." [[labelnote:Explanation]] Krillin's reaction to Goku's healing process in the Saiyan medical machines on Namek is "Whoa! Mondo cool!". The beginning of Vegeta's inner monologue after that line is to say "Yes, that's right boys. Mondo cool." While he's mocking them and it's said in a menacing tone, the ridiculousness of the line puts it in Narm territory. [[/labelnote]]
** Get away from me, Kakarot! I'd rather lose my body than have anything to do with you! [[labelnote:Explanation]] When Goku tries to convince Vegeta to fuse with him, but Vegeta refuses. The "lose my body" part is because Vegeta was dead at the time and only had his body because the gods were letting him use it to fight. [[/labelnote]]
** Vegeta: Father of the Year. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The fandom seems split as to this joke. Half say it because they honestly think Vegeta is a good parent. The other half say it because they remember how many times Vegeta almost got Bulma and Trunks killed.[[/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 suggestive this scene is.[[/labelnote]]
** "''¡Insecto!''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Calling his opponents an "''insecto''" ("insect") basically became Vegeta's CatchPhrase in the Latin American Spanish dub.[[/labelnote]]
*** "''¡Ay! No sólo me robó las células, ¡también mis diálogos!''" ("Oi! Not only did he steal my cells, but also my dialogues!").[[labelnote:Explanation]]Continuing from the above, in one episode of the Cell Saga, Cell told Vegeta, Piccolo and Future Trunks that they were no match for him no matter how much they may have increased their powers, and in the dub calls them "''[[BorrowedCatchPhrase insectos]]''", to which Vegeta answers with that line. In the original anime, that line didn't exist, but Vegeta's Latin American Spanish voice actor Creator/ReneGarcia [[ThrowItIn ad-libbed it]].[[/labelnote]]
* Piccolo went from being usually TheStoic who ''sometimes'' snarked to quite the memetic snarker in the Latin American Spanish dub of ''Z'', due to his LA voice actor Carlos Segundo's memorable [[ThrowItIn ad-libs]]:
** "''¡Mamá!''" ([[IWantMyMommy "Mommy!"]]) [[labelnote:Explanation]]He shouts this after Radditz fires an attack against him.[[/labelnote]]
** "''¿Te digo la verdad o seguimos siendo amigos?''" ("Do I tell you the truth or will we still be friends?") [[labelnote:Explanation]]A RunningGag early on during the Buu Saga was that everyone found Gohan's costume as the costumed crimefighter "The Great Saiyaman" atrocious (except Goten, and even he ended up growing tired of it in ''Super''). When Gohan asked Piccolo about it, this was his response in the dub.[[/labelnote]]
** "''No me molesten, ¡el que esté verde no significa que no esté maduro!''" ("Do not bother me. Just because I'm green does not mean that I'm not ripe!") [[labelnote:Explanation]]During the World Martial Arts Tournament held during the Buu Saga, some tournament organizers noticed him, and noting he was a very tall, green man, asked him about it, and in the dub Piccolo shooed them away with this line.[[/labelnote]]
* ...[[BreathWeapon Imma. Chargin'. Mah. Lazah]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]] A picture of Cell with terribly photoshopped blackface using a BreathWeapon added. Subject to endless copies and parodies.[[/labelnote]]
** Shoop da Whoop.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJo5bsvjE0E Imma firin' mah lazah!]]
** This has [[{{Mondegreen}} mutated further still]], into e.g. "[[http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/7382/1201681811309.png I'm in charge of Malaysia]]".
** Further mutated with WebAnimation/TheLazerCollection, which also added Doctor Octogonapus into the mix.
** The meme even got a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5y9YWjrbpzk kickass song based on it]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v55t5jnhz5s "OH SHIT!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] A lovely piece of GratuitousEnglish ''and'' ObligatorySwearing that the German dub added.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oFJ87G85-E Now with Falcon Punch!]]
* "[[ArcFatigue Are they still on Namek?]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]] The Namek/Frieza arc was dragged out even by ''DBZ'' standards. Used to mock any StoryArc that has long worn out its welcome.[[/labelnote]]
** '''[[http://1-media-cdn.foolz.us/ffuuka/board/a/image/1342/42/1342428784303.jpg YES.]]'''
** This was eventually borrowed by the Manga/{{Bleach}} fandom to refer to the series similarly dragging on Soul Society arc. The next major Bleach arc was ''even longer'', though.
* HFIL. [[labelnote:Explanation]] "Home For Infinite Losers", from the [[{{Bowdlerise}} Bowdlerization]] of the dub. Used as an UnusualEuphemism for Hell, such as "What the HFIL?".[[/labelnote]]
** "I'll send you to the next/another dimension!". [[labelnote:Explanation]] The {{Bowdlerise}}d dub was firmly in NeverSayDie territory, and its abuse of this phrase and variants similarly led to a lot of jokes at its expense.[[/labelnote]]
* "SA-TAN! SA-TAN! SA-TAN!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] From the Latin American dub, when people cheer for Mr. Satan, they say this. [[DubNameChange It's no wonder Funimation changed his name to Hercule]].[[/labelnote]]
* The "Yamcha pose". [[labelnote:Explanation]] The pose Yamcha ends in after dying to a Saibaman (note Saibamen are nothing more than weak, personality-less {{mook}}s). It was basically Yamcha's Character Defining Moment (defining how weak he was), because Krillin went to kill ''three'' of these Saibaimen right after that, in a single attack. Used to mock anyone that is considered pathetically weak. Amusingly used in ''Super'' when Beerus nearly vaporizes Goku - the exact position and framing are recreated, with the difference being Goku barely survived.[[/labelnote]]
** Yamcha's weakness in general is a meme, period. The man seems to be the Japanese equivalent of [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Charlie Brown]] or something. Krillin is given this treatment sometimes as well.
** Team Four Star's even written a song about it to the tune of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" ([[http://www.teamfourstar.com/ available for download on their website]]).
** "Yamcha's here!" (Cue explosion) "Yamcha's DEAD!"
** It eventually reached the level of an AscendedMeme.
*** Bandai released an ''[[http://haruhichan.com/wpblog/43031/yamcha-gets-a-figure-after-his-most-famous-scene/ official figure]]'' of the Yamcha pose.
*** ''VideoGame/DragonballZDokkanBattle'' includes this as a [[http://dbz-dokkanbattle.wikia.com/wiki/Wounded_Honor_Yamcha character card]] for Yamcha as an April Fools joke.
*** It even made it back into the anime during the baseball episode of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''.
* "HURRY UP GOKUUUUUU!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] The line Krillin says after Piccolo is killed by Nappa. Because that was basically he (or anyone else) was all good for at this point: [[OvershadowedByAwesome Stalling for time until Goku comes.]][[/labelnote]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njW71IXOToI "If they set that android free, it will be the end of all of us!]] [[BigNo NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]] Trunks' hilariously {{Narm}}y response to Androids 17 and 18 attempting to release 16.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlK8lftfz9M "Você não é tão bom assim. É um fracassado."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] "You're not that good. You're a loser." A random, narmy line from the Brazilian dub. Sometimes combined with the "Deal with It" gif meme for maximum effect.[[/labelnote]]
* The [[SuperSentaiStance Ginyu Force pose]]. If there's a team in a series, someone has drawn them in this pose.
** To be more specific, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a94_WSi8FRY Ginyu's pose]] has been mercilessly parodied. [[labelnote:Explanation]] The pose consists of Ginyu sticking his rear out, bent over showing his head between his legs, caused attention like from Creator/TeamFourStar.[[/labelnote]]
* Japanese women teach their sons how to masturbate! [[labelnote:Explanation]] One particular MoralGuardian's psychoanalysis of ''Dragon Ball'', combining Freud with plenty of InsaneTrollLogic. [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer Except he thought it was Tarzan.]][[/labelnote]]
* NEXT TIME, ON DRAGON BALL Z! [[labelnote:Explanation]] The [[LargeHam melodramatic]] voiceover for the OnTheNext segment in the English dub gets lampooned a lot.[[/labelnote]]
* In the Portuguese dub, when the episode is ending, there's "Não percam o próximo episódio, porque nós TAMBÉM NÃO! [[GratuitousEnglish YES!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]] It means "Don't miss the next episode, because neither will we! [[CaptainObvious YES!]]".[[/labelnote]]
** Really, the whole dub is endlessly memetic. It's not hard to find clips of a lot the fourth-wall breaking and pop-culture referencing the show does. Like [[https://youtu.be/luA0jpZxK78 this one]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Reportedly, the script the actors were given very frequently was either too short or had lines missing, leading to the actors ad-libbing a lot. Given how most of them were comedians, [[GagDub well...]][[/labelnote]]
** How many actors do you need for a good dub? [[EconomyCast Ten at the most, apparently.]][[labelnote:Explanation]] At any point in the dub's lifetime, there were never more than ten actors on board. [[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIT1wm3FH9Y "I LOVE CORNBREEEEEEAAAAAAAAD!!!!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Cell's final words before dying to Gohan's Kamehameha. He's actually shouting "I am perfect!", but it ends up sounding like he's shouting about his love of cornbread instead.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=EB5SSuOypT4#t=44s "Thank you Goku I will take this bean without hesitation."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] A line from Funimation's Perfect Cell, wherein he accepts a Senzu Bean (which heals all wounds) from Goku. Usually written without punctuation.[[/labelnote]]
* ME EAT YOU UP. ME EAT YOU UP. ME EAT YOU UP! '''ME EAT YOU UP!!!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]] What Fat Buu chants while dancing towards Dabura with intent of eating him. As silly as it sounds it's actually quite disturbing.[[/labelnote]]
* DRAGON, DRAGON! ROCK THE DRAGON! DRAGON BALL ZEEEEEE!!!![[labelnote:Explanation]]The chorus of Dragon Ball Z's first English dub theme song.[[/labelnote]]
* I'm just [[{{Pun}} saiyan]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]] This obvious pun never actually appeared on the show, but is popular enough that it shows up in a lot of fan media such as WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged. [[/labelnote]]
* Mocking the show's SpoilerTitle format, especially when the preview for the next episode is spoiled by the next episode's title. "Frieza Defeated!" is the canonical one.
* [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Principal Skinner]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]In the Latin American Spanish dub of the series, many characters, including Nappa, Ginyu Force member Butter, one of Garlic Jr.'s mooks (Vinegar), King Cold, and Android #20/Dr. Gero, among others, are voiced by José Luis Castañeda, who's best known for also being the Latin American Spanish dub actor of Principal Skinner in ''The Simpsons''. This has led to many fans to comment on Website/YouTube videos of scenes featuring the characters cited above referring to them as Skinner.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder: Dragon Ball videogames]]
* "[[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]]
* "The Big Gete Star enabled me to cheat death! [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EeZCNstTxE How could this be!?]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A possible line that Metal Cooler says when defeated in ''Dragonball Xenoverse 2''. The problem is, you often fight many Metal Coolers, so you'll hear this line over and over and over again. Popularized by Creator/TeamFourStar during their Let's Play of the game.[[/labelnote]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Dragon Ball Z movies]]
* Broly (and his movies), for the Japanese fanbase at least, is a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfEdWEMhqXw goldmine]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnrQukvCvsM of memes.]]
** '''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K80nIxqxvc \デデーン/]]''' [[labelnote:explanation]] in the Japanese version, when Broly blows up the slave aliens' planet, there's an out of place dramatic sound effect that plays. [[/labelnote]]
** "10円!!" [[labelnote:explanation]] a {{Mondegreen}} of Piccolo's shout while charging towards Broly. Translates to "10 yen". Has became a FanNickname for Piccolo in parts of the Japanease fanbase.[[/labelnote]]
** "DOOR!?" [[labelnote:explanation]] similarly, a {{Mondegreen}} of Paragus' grunt when he gets knocked away by Broly.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://knowyourmeme.com/forums/meme-research/topics/426-his-power-is-maximum His power is maximum.]] [[labelnote:explanation]]An 8-year old boy responded to the question "If you were a superhero, who would you be?" by answering with Broly. His reasoning for the choice is "His power is maximum."[[/labelnote]]
* One of the most memorable moments in any NonSerialMovie is the point where Super Android 13 hits Goku [[GroinAttack right in the dragon balls.]]
* "Frieza decided to train for the first time in his life." [[labelnote:explanation]] The official explanation Frieza gives for [[TookALevelInBadass his immense power boost]] in ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'' is because he actually decides to train, making him the first villain to unlock his power the old-fashioned way. Made all the more outstanding by the sheer amount of power he gains from it, as he goes from being weaker than a fatigued Super Saiyan to being on par with a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan.[[/labelnote]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Dragon Ball GT]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-liykjYg68 Professor Omega explains the workings of positive and negative energy.]]
* "Old Man Krillin is unbeatable." [[labelnote:Explanation]] The fact that an elderly Krillin was able to land a hit on Goku during their friendly fight at the end of ''Dragonball GT'' (Goku was obviously not fighting at full power) has prompted a meme that [[FanNickname Old Man Krillin]] is a MemeticBadass who could beat anyone with ease.[[/labelnote]]
* "''Dragonball GT'' doesn't exist." [[labelnote:Explanation]] GT, the anime-only sequel to the series, is generally agreed to be of very poor quality compared to the rest of the series, so fans like to simply pretend [[FanonDiscontinuity it never happened at all]]. [[DeathOfTheAuthor Note that Toriyama supports the series.]] [[/labelnote]]
* "GT Logic." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Phrase used to explain any of the major inconsistencies in characters' abilities and/or attributes in GT. While it's generally agreed that the first two series had their share of plot holes, GT is seen as having far more than either of them.[[/labelnote]]


[[/folder]]

[[folder: Dragon Ball Super]]
* 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]].
* [[DeadpanSnarker Yeah, sure. Let's go see ]] ''[[NoRespectGuy Yamcha]].'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]In a case of {{Woolseyism}} in the Creator/{{Funimation}} dub, during Bulma's Birthday party when she is trying to coax Vegeta into socializing with everyone else, Vegeta scoffs this as a retort. The fact that he singled out [[MemeticLoser Yamcha]] for ridicule did not get missed by fans. Ended up becoming acknowledged because not only did [[https://twitter.com/FUNimation/status/828105095237734400 Funimation tweet about it during the Toonami Broadcast]], but Toonami used the line as the episode bumper and in the preview promo for the following episode. It also makes Vegeta look a bit like a CrazyJealousGuy in retrospect after his reaction to Beerus hurting her, since Yamcha is Bulma's ex.[[/labelnote]]
* "[[https://ifunny.co/fun/kFMDsyTJ2 Beerus eat a Snickers]]"[[labelnote:Explanation]]The "eat a Snickers" meme reached the Dragon Ball fandom as well, after Beerus was shown blowing up planets whenever he's not satisfied with a meal.[[/labelnote]]
* "Yamcha, no!" or "It's Yamcha's fault if the world's destroyed"[[labelnote:Explanation]]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.[[/labelnote]]
* Vegeta cooking for Beerus in ''Super'' sparks some jokes from ''Jump'' Fans by renaming it ''"[[Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma Shokugeki no Vegeta]]"''.
* "Broly Cameo!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Vegeta initially went Super Saiyan after Bulma was struck, his eyes were pure white like Broly's.[[/labelnote]]
* ''Super Saiyan Please?'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]In another case of {{Woolseyism}}, Goku used this phase when pleading Beerus to stop destroying the Earth, and give more time to Goku to find out about the Super Saiyan God. It was also Sean's delivery that sold it.[[/labelnote]]
* Whooooo-[[BadBadActing iforgotmytractor]]-ooooooaaaa [[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''another case'' of {{Woolseyism}} in the dub. Goku, who was pretending to oversell a Megaton Punch from Mr. Satan, forgot to carry his tractor as he was flying away, so he double-backed for it.[[/labelnote]]
* Goku and Vegeta with [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/j8tc7RRQYAs/maxresdefault.jpg full on beards]] was 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 comparisons to ''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 [[VocalMinority 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. Though his losses throughout the series, especially against Black, have made this die down a little.[[/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 the biggest MemeticLoser in the series since he was killed by a Saibaman.[[/labelnote]]
* "We are the evil Universe!"[[labelnote:Explanation]] 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. Died down when Freeza's counterpart turned out to be not be very heroic, setting up the invasions that he stops so he gets power and fortune, and the universes not being strictly moral mirrors of each other. This meme later came back due to the Tournament of Power, with everyone hating Universe 7 due to Goku reminding Zen'O about it.[[/labelnote]]
* Goku is faster than time! [[labelnote:Explanation]] The fandom's reaction after Goku out-speeds Hit, who froze him in time, while using his 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 [[MemeticBadass HIS POWER WAS MAXIMUM]]. It has become an inside joke within the fandom to ask or say that any new character is Broly. In other words, [[Creator/TeamFourStar "wen broli?"]][[/labelnote]]
* Vegeta chewing on a pacifier. [[labelnote:Explanation]]After Vegeta has his essence drained by the Commeson and is beginning to fade, he's giving the Commeson key to chew on to buy him some time. It coincidentally looks identical to a baby's pacifier, which Vegeta later sees Baby Pan sucking on.[[/labelnote]]
* Popo is Zen'o's dad. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Thanks to Creator/TeamFourStar making Mr. Popo a MemeticBadass and a MemeticPsychopath, people have joked that Mr. Popo is the father of Zen'o and the one person above him. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEEh5Dv4MMw This scene]] really cemented this view with the Zen'o's gaining Popo eyes.[[/labelnote]]
* Future Trunks is suffering. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Future Trunks was already the biggest {{Woobie}} in the franchise. Having him return because a new evil wrecked his world and killed his love ones had the fandom wanting to give Trunks a hug. And things do ''[[FromBadToWorse not]]'' get better for Trunks by the [[BittersweetEnding end of the saga]].[[/labelnote]]
* Future Trunks with blue hair dye! [[labelnote:Explanation]]After Future Trunks debuted with blue hair (most likely to distinguish him from the main timeline's Trunks) and was seen holding a canister of blue liquid (actually fuel for the time machine), didn't take long for fans to make the connection.[[/labelnote]]
* Turles is now canon! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Initial reactions to Goku Black being revealed included comparisons to the original Evil Goku, Turles, an inexplicable doppelganger. Some went as far to say they expected Goku Black to have a similar backstory, being a Goku from a timeline where did not hit his head in his timeline and never lost his inherent Saiyan violence.[[/labelnote]]
* Everyone referring to Goku Black as ''"that Black guy"'' has led to a lot of jokes about how Earth's mightiest heroes are racist.
* Goten is Black.[[labelnote:Explanation]] Because of Goku Black's slimmer build compared to Goku, fans thought it was possible that Black was an adult Goten, and it quickly became an extremely pervasive fan theory. Some enjoyed the theory for it being ironic that an evil Goten would torture Future Trunks, while present Goten and Trunks are best friends. Many others thought the idea was dumb because it made very little sense. Even after the reveal of Black's identity, "Goten is Black" is asserted as truth by people having a laugh, whether or not the conversation was about Black.[[/labelnote]]
* West Supreme Kai is Goku Black. [[labelnote: Explanation]] An injoke that started to gain track in 4chan, where Goku Black, instead of being [[spoiler: Zamasu]], is the Supreme Kai of the West that was killed by Majin Buu, coming back for revenge. [[WebComic/DragonBallAFToyble Based on her AF version by Toyotaro]], the meme involves photoshopping pictures to make it look like he is the deceased Supreme Kai, and probably to make the [[NoYay awkward]] interactions with Zamasu even funnier.[[/labelnote]]
* Super Saiyan Power Rangers! [[labelnote:Explanation]] With the confirmation that Black's Super Saiyan form is called Super Saiyan Rose, which made his hair pink, fans have jokingly and mockingly compared the Super Saiyan transformations to Power Rangers: with Super Saiyan being yellow, Super Saiyan God being red, Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan being blue, Broly's Legendary Super Saiyan being green, Ultimate Gohan being black, and Baby Vegeta being white.[[/labelnote]]
* ZAMASU! [[labelnote:Explanation]] A meme that starting to gain traction after Zamasu started to show more hatred towards mortals, causing Gowasu to sternly shout "ZAMASU!" Started picking up traction on 4chan's Anime and Manga board. [[/labelnote]]
* Ningen [[labelnote: Explanation]]The word "ningen", literally meaning human/person, was used heavily in the Future Trunks arc of ''Super'' to refer to anyone that wasn't a god, particularly by [[OmnicidalManiac Zamasu]]. There was some contention whether to translate the term as "human" or "mortal", seeing as aliens aren't quite "human" and gods in ''Dragon Ball'' are not immortal. As a result, many fans simply use the word "ningen" either for simplicity for because it's funnier on account of how ''[[VerbalTic often ]]'' Zamasu used it. Compilations of Zamasu and/or Black using the word "ningen" are also common.[[/labelnote]]
* [=GodTube=][[labelnote: Explanation]]After the revelation that Gowasu watches a Website/YouTube analogue called [=GodTube=], and even jokes about becoming a "[=GodTuber=]", it has become ongoing joke that the reason why Gowasu doesn't notice the evil growing in Zamasu's heart is because he's too busy posting [=GodTube=] comments. Gowasu posting [=GodTube=] videos with clickbait titles is also common. This branches into another meme that all Whis' images on his staff are actually [=GodTube=] videos, like Goku turning into a Super Saiyan against Frieza, and the entire tournament between U6 and U7 was live streamed by Vados and him. Related to that, it has become popular to post images of Gowasu watching television with photoshop pictures and gifs, like him watching ''Dragon Ball Evolution'' or [[spoiler: Zamasu being killed by Beerus]].[[/labelnote]]
* Beerus used Ctrl+Alt+Del on [[spoiler: Zamasu]]!![[labelnote:Explanation]] When Beerus uses his Hakai technique to annihilate Zamasu, the fans made jokes about Beerus using that command or variants, such as Crtl+Z, Alt-F4, etc as a DeadlyEuphemism.[[/labelnote]]
* Goku is a lip virgin. [[labelnote:Explanation]] After witnessing Future Trunks give Future Mai a senzu bean through his lips Goku implies that he never kissed Chi Chi on the lips despite being married for decades and having two children.[[/labelnote]]
* Now we know where the budget for Episode 5 went.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Whenever there is an episode with really good animation, several fans will joke that the budget for those episodes came from Episode 5, which was notoriously OffModel before being fixed on [=DVD=].[[/labelnote]]
* The Evilest Bro-hug in the Universe. [[labelnote:Explanation]] The justice hug between Black and Zamasu. In a pretty emotional episode for the heroes this flashback of Black and Zamasu hugging after meeting for the first time caught many by surprise. A lot of fans started to joke about the scene with many touching on how creepy and hilarious it is.[[/labelnote]]
* Goku Black is a time remnant![[labelnote:Explanation]]A {{transplant}} meme from ''Series/{{The Flash|2014}}'' which had a similar concept of an erased character still being alive thanks to some TimeyWimeyBall shenanigans.[[/labelnote]]
* "Vegeta sama! That's why!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] Adding onto Vegeta's "Prince of all Saiyans" meme, he stated this line when explaining why he was stronger than Goku Black, which became a hit among Vegeta fans.[[/labelnote]]
* "PRAISE AND ADORE HIM!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] The title of the debut episode of Fusion Zamasu is popular in some circles, with people using the quote with other characters such as [[StoryBreakerPower Vegito]], [[LittleMissBadass Arale]], or [[IronButtMonkey Yamcha]] (especially so after his [[Videogame/DragonBallXenoverse2 "Yamcha Is Number One" mission]] and the baseball episode where he won the game).[[/labelnote]]
* SUBARASHII! [[labelnote:Explanation]] A word Goku Black often used which translates to, magnificent.[[/labelnote]]
* '''[[SayMyName SON!]]''' '''''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis GOKU!!]]''''' [[labelnote:Explanation]] Fusion Zamasu's completely [[LargeHam over the top scream]] after Goku used the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan/Kaioken combo to break his halo. It is also considered great vocal work for Creator/ShinichiroMiki and is the measuring stick used for anyone playing Zamasu in the dub.[[/labelnote]]
* [[WhyWontYouDie YOU AGAIN TRUNKS!!?]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] For much the same reason as the "SON GOKU" meme. Fusion Zamasu losing it when Future Trunks interferes, yet again, with him killing Goku and Vegeta.[[/labelnote]]
* It's become a meme to take Zen'o and photoshop or draw fanart of him killing Goku Black or Zamasu with no trouble.
* Zamasu did nothing wrong! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A tongue-in-cheek joke about how Zamasu wasn't wrong about wanting to destroy mortals because they're terrible. This meme has gotten a lot of use during the Universal Survival Saga with fans calling Goku the villain of the arc since he reminded Zen'o of the tournament that would lead to seven universes being erased.[[/labelnote]]
* KONO HIT DA!!! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Because of Hit's ability to use Time Skip that makes it seems like he's freezing time, fans are already calling him the [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Dio]] of the series (minus LargeHam). It doesn't help that Hit tells a mob boss that his resistance is "Useless" (Muda)[[/labelnote]]
* FEMBROLY!!! [[labelnote: Explanation]]The first trailer for Universal Survival Saga showcases the originally unknown Kale, a female Universe 6 Saiyan who transforms into a ''Legendary Super Saiyan'' like form, making her appear as clear gender-flipped Broly[[/labelnote]]
* [[WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged SHE'S SO COOL]]...Hope her story doesn't suck. [[labelnote:explanation]]After Kale's first appearance, fans are hoping her backstory isn't as petty as Broly's, whose hatred for Goku is because Goku cried a lot when they were babies. Alternatively, joking that she'll be a full on DistaffCounterpart to Broly with the motivation that [[WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged she hates Cabba because he cried...a lot...for like three hours.]][[/labelnote]]
* Goku's the villain! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Goku reminded Zen'o of the multiverse tournament he promised back in the Champa Saga, and he did this despite Beerus ''and'' Whis warning him not to get involved with Zen'o anymore. This has fans both teasingly and seriously calling Goku a "villain" because the universes that lose the Tournament of Power will be erased. It's through sheer dumb luck that Zen'o was actually planning on eventually erasing the 8 universes fighting in the tournament anyway, on account of their "Mortal Levels" being very unsatisfactory. Also fueling this meme is the original [[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Sun Wukong's]] disposition and the ending of Episode 81 framing Goku as very antagonistic towards the Gods, which is making all of them see him as the villain of the story in-universe.[[/labelnote]]
* Android 17 ranging the hell out of that park. [[labelnote: Explanation]]After Akira Toriyama confirms that 17 became a park ranger after the Cell Games, Creator/TeamFourStar went with this, and the fans quote the line after seeing him in the Buu Saga. It's now full circle when 18 tells Goku and Gohan that 17 became a park ranger with a shot of him overlooking the wildlife preserve while quoting said line.[[/labelnote]]
* Android 17 reached godhood by fighting poachers. [[labelnote: Explanation]] Often used by detractors of Android 17 to mock how he was able to become strong enough to fight Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku.[[/labelnote]]
* Make Gohan Great Again! [[labelnote: Explanation]] With Gohan seemingly playing a major role in the Universal Survival Saga and getting back his Ultimate form, fans are hopeful that Gohan will finally shake off his BadassDecay.[[/labelnote]]
* Caulifla is always angry! [[labelnote: Explanation]] After Caulifla easily masters the Super Saiyan (and Super Saiyan 2) form without going through the usual rage induced trigger, some fans have started to joke that this is her real secret (in reference to the Hulk's line in ''[[Film/TheAvengers2012 the Avengers]]''). The fact that she's depicted as a hot-headed gang leader helps.[[/labelnote]]
* KALE IS SUPER SAND LESBIAN! [[labelnote: Explanation]]Due to the [[LesYay interactions]] of Kale and Caulifla in Episode 93, particularly [[AmbiguouslyGay Kale's]], plenty of people have been referring to Kale as the Super Sand Lesbian, thanks to this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pSmhZFbCy0 masterpiece]].[[/labelnote]]
* Don't get noticed by other people's senpais. [[labelnote: Explanation]] Going by the popular "notice me [[SempaiKohai senpai]]" meme, Kale transforms into her Super Saiyan Berserk mode when she see her "senpai" Caulifla interacting with Cabba. Kale then proceeds to go full Broly to try to kill Cabba.[[/labelnote]]
* Princess Cabba... [[labelnote: Explanation]]Another [[Recap/DragonBallZAbridgedM11 Broly-related]] WebVideo/TeamFourStar reference arose upon the sudden reveal of [[SuperpoweredEvilSide SSJB]] Kale's psychotic obsession in taking down Cabba.
-->'''Kale''': Princess Cabba...
-->'''Cabba''': Please, no...
-->'''Kale''': You lied to me/You took Caulifla away from me...
-->'''Cabba''': I did no such thing!
-->'''Kale''': You dirty boy.
-->''{{Beat}}''
-->'''Cabba''' ''(panicking)'': Caulifla, get me off this planet right now, I'm serious! ''Instant Transmission!''[[/labelnote]]
* Teleports behind you / Get Lost[[labelnote: Explanation]]When Goku tried to introduce himself to Jiren, he quickly teleported behind him and told him to get lost. Due to the popularity of both the "Teleporting Behind You Meme" and "Nothing Personel Kid", this immediately got memed when people saw this line.[[/labelnote]]
* Zamasu didn't die for this[[labelnote: Explanation]]When Universe 10's team was revealed to focus more on strength, a lot of fans made comments like this, stating that Zamasu would be appalled to see his home universe with such macho fighters.[[/labelnote]]
* If X achieves Y, I'm done with Z![[labelnote: Explanation]] After some episode previews suggested that Caulifla wanted to learn Super Saiyan Blue from Goku, some fans immediately called foul and complained that this would cause UniquenessDecay for the form, stating that "If Caulifla achieves Super Saiyan Blue, I'm quitting Super". Needless to say, this overblown reaction quickly got mocked endlessly, with people claiming that if a certain character (X) achieved a certain form (Y), they would quit watching a series (Z). Bear in mind that X, Y and Z do not have to be related to each other or Dragon Ball, resulting in such quotes as "If Spider-Man reaches his perfect form, I'm quitting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", etc.[[/labelnote]]
* I am having Broly flashbacks[[labelnote:Explanation]]When Kale first transforms, her speech and mannerisms made her 100% Broly when she tried to kill Cabba. In episode 100, she goes absolutely medieval on nearly every participant, especially Goku specifically during the tournament.[[/labelnote]]
* [[Film/TheAvengers2012 "Puny God!"]] [[labelnote: Explanation]] When Kale is beating up on Goku in Episode 100, she grabs him and smashes him to the ground very similarly to how the Hulk defeated Loki to the ground by [[https://twitter.com/Scourgey/status/888933538103533569 smashing him to the ground]] in the 2012 Avengers movie. Bonus points for the fact that A) Goku has access to God Ki, so he's technically a God of sorts, and B) Goku's Latin American Spanish voice actor, Creator/MarioCastaneda, actually voices Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner in the MCU.[[/labelnote]]
* Mentor/Mentee Christmas Saving Wave of Love! [[labelnote: Explanation]]After Caulifla and Kale pull off a Combined Energy Wave to overpower [[Characters/DragonBallUniverse11 General Kahseral's squadron of teammates]], some fans have pointed out how visually similar Caulifla's red Full Power Energy Wave wrapping around Kale's large, green version is to a candy cane. As a result, it leads to another WebVideo/DragonBallAbridged reference involving Goku [[DragonBallZAbridgedM3 fighting against Lord Slug]], empowered by the belief that he's saving Christmas.[[/labelnote]]
* This is the true power of the No Fap! [[labelnote:Explanation]] In 4chan and other imageboards, the "No [[ADateWithRosiePalms Fap]]" is an event where the users avoid masturbating. A lot of people in 4chan started to joke that Roshi "tranining with Puar" to avoid his "carnals feelings" during the Tournament of Power was this.[[/labelnote]]
* "''¡Vuela, pega y esquiva!''" ("Fly, Hit and Dodge!") [[labelnote:Explanation]]The refrain of the opening song in the Latin American Spanish dub. It's as narmy as it sounds, and when the opening was revealed by Cartoon Network L.A., many [=YouTubers=] wasted no time in making fun of it.[[/labelnote]]
* "''Borra este video o cancelarán X.''" ("Take this video down or they'll cancel X.") [[labelnote:Explanation]]It started out as a [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil reaction]] of people fearing the Latin American dub would be cancelled because people upload clips of it on Website/YouTube, but people quickly began to make fun of this by replacing ''Super'' with another series in the comment.[[/labelnote]]
* "Adrian Barba sang it better." [[labelnote:Explanation]]A reaction of Latin American fans who were displeased with the official dubs of the opening and ending themes of ''Super'', and prefer the fandub by Adrian Barba, who sang the second opening and ending of ''Z''.[[/labelnote]]
* Tien is the new Yamcha. [[labelnote: Explanation]]Following his elimination in the Universal Tournament this opinion has been rapidly growing, especially due to the lack of fanfare compared to Krillin's sudden ring out. Further exemplified by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42HNvl0e26I this video]]. [[/labelnote]]
