''Franchise/FinalFantasy''. You know, that [[OverlyLongGag teeth-crunchingly popular]] series that everyone who actually plays video games has, at the absolute least, [[VideoGameLongRunners heard of]]? If it's that popular, with the release of each game, you ''know'' that it'll spawn memes.

When adding to this page, please write the meme, then add the explanation of the meme inside a labelnote titled "Explanation." Not everyone knows where a particular meme came from or how it's used, even if it's potholed.


[[folder:''Final Fantasy I'']]
* "I, Garland, will knock you all down!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Garland's line to the heroes early in the game before getting completely thrashed, a shining example of what happens when NeverSayDie and GoodBadTranslation love each other very much. Like other such lines in the series, this one is kept in most of the later releases/retranslations of the game.[[/labelnote]]
* "WelcomeToCorneria!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In a typical NES RPG, an NPC would say the same thing over and over, and one guy would always tell you where you were. Incidentally, this line isn't actually in the game, but comes from [=FF1=] spoof webcomic ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater''.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy II'']]
* '''"UBOAAAAAAAAAA"''' or '''"UNGAAAAAHHHH"''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Emperor's death cry, the former being the Japanese transliteration and the latter being the English translation. It's a very popular meme in Japan, to the extent that it's the name of the Emperor's fan club,a nd his death cries in ''Dissidia''.[[/labelnote]]
* I don't like being teased... [[labelnote:Explanation]]From the scene where [[spoiler:the impostor Princess Hilda]] attempts to seduce [[CantTalkToWomen Firion]], which got made into a MythologyGag in both PSP ''Dissidia'' games.[[/labelnote]]
* Guy speak beaver. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Guy, the simple GentleGiant of the hero group can speak to animals, including beavers, as he was raised in the wild. At one point, Firion and the gang come across a colony of beavers living in a cave while searching for the Goddess' Bell, and Guy says this very line when they interract with the head beaver. [[ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman This also happens to be the one point in the game where Guy is relevant.]] Fans latched onto this as a small scale meme.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy IV'']]
* "You spoony bard!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The infamous {{Woolseyism}} when Tellah chews Edward out after the latter's {{Love Interest|s}} Anna dies. Referenced in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', the PSP port of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'', and ''Dissidia Duodecim''; it's even why Noah Antwiler of WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment uses "The Spoony One" as his internet alter ego. Occasionally also seen as "You Spoony [Other Noun]." Sadly, the trope here has been Administrivia/{{renamed|Tropes}} QuirkyBard.[[/labelnote]]
* From the Japanese fandom: Iidesutomo! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Golbez's line when Fusoya urges him to "give his power to Meteor," translated in English as something like "Fine then" or "Very well." How big is this meme in Japan? In both the Japanese and English versions of ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', its possible to get Golbez to say this very line by performing the inputs in his EX Burst at very specific frames, upon which his Shadow Dragon will speak Fusoya's line and Golbez will reply in kind. Its also an unlockable secret voice once you get Golbez to level 100.[[/labelnote]]
* [[NeverSayDie What the hell is swoon?]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The original English SNES translation had "swoon" for KO, possibly a means for the game to comply to Nintendo's censorship policies.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy V'']]
* "Enough expository banter! Now, we fight like men! And ladies! [[{{Bifauxnen}} And ladies who dress like men!]] For [[CrazyAwesome Gilgamesh...]] [[Franchise/PowerRangers IT IS MORPHING TIME!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of GILGAMESH's very famous quotes.[[/labelnote]]
* '''GILGAMESH!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The fandom's view of '''GILGAMESH''' as a MemeticBadass crystallized in their need to spell out his name in '''ALL CAPS''' whenever mentioning him on forums. Sometimes doubles as an InterruptingMeme.[[/labelnote]]
* '''TURTLE!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Shouted by Exdeath when Ghido interferes with him. This didn't really become widespread until ''Dissidia'' came out, in which Exdeath says it again (in completely unrelated context), and as with everything else he said, his statement going memetic was just [[IncrediblyLamePun una-void-able]].[[/labelnote]]
* Piano FLEX! [[labelnote:Explanation]]There is a subquest involving playing all of the pianos in order to earn an extremely powerful Bardsong; every time a unique piano is played, your character's piano playing skills level up and the character poses heroically in the most MundaneMadeAwesome manner possible.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy VI'']]
* MOTHERFUCKER SUPLEXED A TRAIN! [[labelnote:Explanation]]From WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment referring to Sabin of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', who thanks to a GoodBadBug can indeed use his Suplex move on the Phantom Train, raising Sabin to MemeticBadass levels.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zExDUoaZPo Sabin suplexes himself.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]If you do the command for Suplex before he gets confused or if he randomly chooses to do so and he is the only living party member... This happens.[[/labelnote]]
* SON OF A SUBMARINER! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A {{Woolseyism}} of Kefka's reaction when Edgar orders Figaro Castle to dive into the sand.[[/labelnote]]
* This is sickening! You sound like chapters from a self-help booklet! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Kefka before the final battle, mocking the WorldOfCardboardSpeech that the cast has been doing.[[/labelnote]]
* Don't tease the octopus, kids! [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Ultros' memetically memorable lines, often used out of context to refer to naughty tentacles.[[/labelnote]]
* On a certain {{Imageboard|s}}, it became common to post a picture of Ultros (who's known for his weird lines) along with an IncrediblyLamePun where the punchline is always [[spoiler:spoiler marked]].
* HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE [[labelnote:Explanation]]Kefka pitching an epic temper tantrum when Celes stabs him.[[/labelnote]]
* I'm a general, not some opera floozy! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Locke's idea to capture Setzer at the opera is to have Celes, who looks like the opera star Maria, take her place in the show. Celes is not impressed with this plan as the quote shows.[[/labelnote]]
* Locke is not a thief, he is a '''''[[InsistentTerminology TREASURE HUNTER]]'''''! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Based on Locke's insistence on his profession. Expect to be corrected anytime you refer to him as a thief.[[/labelnote]]
* Everybody wants Gau! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Gau is the only character who has the Charm ability, which will make an enemy attack its allies until one of them dies or Gau casts Charm on somebody else. [[GameBreaker It works on all enemies.]][[/labelnote]]
* I thought it was about a clown...[[labelnote:Explanation]]A popular joke made by fans of the game to troll other fans of the game regarding Kefka's jester-like attire.[[/labelnote]]
* THERE'S SAND ON MY BOOTS! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Kefka does not enjoy being in the desert.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy VII'' and ''Compilation of Final Fantasy VII'']]
* Attack while it's tail's up! [[spoiler:It's gonna counterattack with its laser.]][[labelnote:Explanation]]From the game's first boss fight. Due to a combination of poor translation and this line having to be split into one line after another, many players went ahead and indeed attacked while the boss's tail was up, not seeing the second line warning about the counterattack. Or they see both lines and assume it'll fire the laser if they ''don't'' attack. Either way, cue laser counterattack after hitting the boss, followed by massive damage and quite possibly a GameOver.[[/labelnote]]
* [[InnocentFlowerGirl Aeris]] [[ItWasHisSled dies.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The most famous (and, at the time, spoileriffic) permanent character death in the game. Occasionally combines with the "Dumbledore dies" meme and someone else chimes in with "You son of a bitch!"[[/labelnote]]
* This guy are sick. [[labelnote:Explanation]]From a bit of the GoodBadTranslation of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' (Or ''Bad'' Bad Translation, depending on point of view). Has become a Shibboleth among ''Final Fantasy'' fans to separate the fans who played the games because of the {{Bishounen}} characters from the rest of its fandom.[[/labelnote]]
* THERE AIN'T NO GETTIN OFFA THIS TRAIN WE ON! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Barret, channeling Creator/MrT in the opening mission.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8vqyY3vSLA SEPHIROTH KILLED HARRY POTTER!!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A cosplay image of Sephiroth stabbing Harry Potter in the same way he stabbed Aerith.[[/labelnote]]
* SUPERNOVA! Might want to go make a sandwich. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A dig at the OverlyLongFightingAnimation that has since become endemic to the ''Final Fantasy'' series, in reference to one of Sephiroth's attacks. Can also apply to the Knights of the Round summon, especially if Mime is in effect.[[/labelnote]]
* Sit your ass down in that chair and drink your goddamn '''TEA'''! [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Cid's lines during the scene when the party is introduced to him.[[/labelnote]]
* French frogs, big cherries, peter pan, magic cheese, SEPHIROTH [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another Mondegreen, this time of the lyrics to the famous "One Winged Angel", the final battle theme. The actual lyrics are in Latin, but even more modern versions with better sound technology sound like a rather bizarre list in English.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrZQIayUnbA The Omega Kawaii Cloud Song.]] It's about Cloud. His bishieness is showing. [[FollowTheLeader It has spawned variations featuring characters from other fandoms.]]
* "Conflict Resolved!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A line spoken by an unexplained disembodied voice whenever Zack wins a battle in ''VideoGame/CrisisCore: Final Fantasy VII''.[[/labelnote]]
* "Is this the end?"; "I'm ''trying'', '''I'M TRYING!'''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Dialogue between Tseng and Zack in ''Crisis Core'' during one of the {{Limit Break}}s.[[/labelnote]]
* "Shall I give you 'dis pear?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A {{Mondegreen}} of Sephiroth's famous line in ''Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren'': "Shall I give you despair?" Often accompanied by a picture of him Photoshopped so it looks like he's holding the fruit in question.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy VIII'']]
* In Japan, Squall is often associated with Japan's Mister Donut mascot Pon De Lion.
* ...Whatever. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Squall says this a ''lot.''[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy IX'']]
* VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' doesn't have many m - VISIT PLAYONLINE.COM FOR MORE INFO [[labelnote:Explanation]]The official Prima strategy guide is notorious for having very little actual info on how to progress and instead constantly asks the reader to visit Playonline.com. Bear in mind, this was an era where people only had dial-up at best. Made worse by the fact that Playonline.com is now little more than a news site for Square's ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' MMO, with not a single bit of information on ''Final Fantasy IX'' anywhere to be found, making the Prima guide now nearly useless save for the item checklists and boss tips.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy X'']]
* '''HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA.''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The infamous "fake laughter" scene from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', intentional StylisticSuck that still garnered a {{Narm}} reaction out of the audience.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ihfoAxVRhw NO TIME FOR LOVE. DESKTOP THREAD!]] and "SHOW ME YOUR DESKTOP, BITCH!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A [[Website/FourChan /g/]] meme where some posters will post images of Tidus in threads where posters show off their desktops.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txgjAiw8Rew "Stay away from the summoner!!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A random female NPC in Besaid commanding Tidus to keep his distance from Yuna. Considering that the two hook up over the course of the game, her warning didn't seem to deter Tidus one bit.[[/labelnote]]
* "I was {{out of the frying pan}} and [[PopularSayingBut into the]] ''[[PopularSayingBut freezer]]''." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Tidus' narration while stranded at Baaj Temple after escaping the [[HopelessBossFight not-meant-to-be-defeated-at-that-point-in-the-game-boss]] Geosgaeno and finding himself locked in a chamber with no fire to keep himself warm.[[/labelnote]]
* "I NEED FOOD." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Tidus again. After lighting a fire, he discovers he's hungry and belts out this line before briefly dozing off.[[/labelnote]]
* [[YouNoTakeCandle Ride ze shoopuf?]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Hypello have a mangled handle on the English language, which will become very noticeable very quickly. They'll ask you this line when you want to ride a shoopuf, the Spiran equivalent of elephants.[[/labelnote]]
* I'm annoying, huh? [[labelnote:Explanation]]During the attack on Home, there's a voice shouting "Ajanouha ihtan!" ("Everyone under!" in Al Bhed) over the loud speakers over and over. Between the constant repetition and general unfamiliarity with the Al Bhed language, players often interpret the speech as--[[MostAnnoyingSound rather appropriately for some]]--"I'm annoying, huh?"[[/labelnote]]
* No _____ / N_____[[labelnote:Explanation]]Because of the wide array of customization options compared to past ''Final Fantasy'' games, ''FFX'' is a popular game for {{Self Imposed Challenge}}s, [[AcronymAndAbbreviationOverload each with their own acronym]], with an NSG ([[LowLevelRun No Sphere Grid]]) run being one of the ''easiest'' of these. Other challenges include NSGIE (No Sphere Grid, Initial Equipment) NSGNSNCNO (No Sphere Grid, No {{Summon|Magic}}, No [[SocketedEquipment Customization]], No [[LimitBreak Overdrive]]), and the SIC to end all ''FFX'' [=SICs=], [[OverlyLongGag NSGNSNCNONENNENBB]] (No Sphere Grid, No Summon, No Customization, No Overdrives, No Escape, No [[EncounterRepellant "No Encounters"]], No [[MiniGame Blitzball]]).[[/labelnote]]
* [[BeTheBall "I'm gonna be a blitzball when I grow up!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]In Kilika, following Yuna's first Sending, a boy found in one of the houses tells Tidus this when talked to, the silliness of the line added to by the fact that the NPC in question is rather hyperactive. This quote is actually faithful to the original Japanese script, but whereas the Japanese version of the HD remaster fixed this error (the line was changed to "blitzball player"), [[http://legendsoflocalization.com/qa-is-the-blitzball-kid-in-final-fantasy-x-really-this-dumb/ the line remained unchanged in English.]][[/labelnote]]
* Wakka's job class is [[UsefulNotes/KuKluxKlan Grand Wizard]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]][[{{Flanderization}} Flanderizing]] Wakka's FantasticRacism to being part of hate movements has become popular thanks to the WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay LP of the game.[[/labelnote]]
* [[LipLock "Withyunabymyside"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]For whatever reason, the English voice actors were not shown the footage while recording and so did not know exactly how much time they had to record their lines. As a result, sometimes the audio is sped up in order to fit the alotted time for the character's dialogue. By far the most notorious being a passionate speech Tidus makes about the journey... ending with this suddenly erratic string of word.[[/labelnote]]
* The Tee-dus vs. Tye-duh/dus debate.[[labelnote:Explanation]]The ever-present arguments over whether or not his name is pronounced [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI Teedus]] or [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII Tye-duh/dus]] as it was never spoken aloud in-game due to [[HelloInsertNameHere players being able to name Tidus]] and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' respecting said decision by ''also'' not referring to Tidus by name. WordOfGod and Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor (Tidus' English voice actor) say it's the former, but the official verdict has done little to quell the arguments.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy X-2'']]
* I don't like your plan. It sucks.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Uttered by Yuna near the end of the game. It's ''the'' most notable line in the game.[[/labelnote]]
* [=LeBlanc's=] orgasmic moans.[[labelnote:Explanation]]There's a minigame were Yuna has to give [=LeBlanc=] a massage. Doing well makes [=LeBlanc=] sound like she's really into it.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy XI'']]
* [[{{Nerf}} loldrg]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A derogatory reference to the Dragoon job because of its former uselessness. "lolthf" and "lolpup" are variations that refer to the Thief and Puppeteer classes.[[/labelnote]]

* "[=PS2=] Limitations." The one and only reason why everything in the game is the way it is...[[labelnote:Explanation]]Including not knowing how to code something properly or just being lazy. Carried over to ''XIV'' as well, switch "[=PS2=]" with "[=PS3=]".[[/labelnote]]
* [Incredibly Tough] [Tarutaru] [Meat] [Rod] [You can have this.] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Some of the things [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar you can get past the radar]] via the Auto-Translator. Also carried over to ''XIV''.[[/labelnote]]
** [Mithra] [fun] [hole] [Can I have it?]
* Tarutaru punting. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The diminutive race being mocked for their size.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy XII'']]
* "I'M CAPTAIN BASCH FON RONSENBURG OF DALMASCA!", "BASCH LIVES!", and "DON'T LISTEN TO ONDORE'S LIES!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]From a hilarious side mission where Vaan raises a clamor to the effect that the character Basch is still alive. He does this by going up to random people on the street and shouting one of the aforementioned lines.[[/labelnote]]
** Extra lulzy because half of what Ondore says to people are lies, and ''[[UnreliableNarrator he's the narrator of the game]]''!
* '''GILGAMESH''''s lines, again. It helps that he's voiced by Creator/JohnDiMaggio
** "[[NoIndoorVoice NOW WE FIGHT!]]"
* "I play [[TheHero the leading man]], who else?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Balthier's CatchPhrase, which fans eagerly agree with since he's the EnsembleDarkHorse.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy XIII'']]
* '''TOWNS!!!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The outcry of [[FanDumb some fans]] when it was revealed that there would be no traditional towns in the game.[[/labelnote]]
* '''[[FanDumb RENONA REWIS!!!]]''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The outcry of some fans when it was revealed that a Leona Lewis song would be used as a theme for the English release of the game.[[/labelnote]]
* Wanna know why everyone hates Jihl Nabaat? BECAUSE YOU DON'T FUCK WITH [[EnsembleDarkhorse SAZH KATZROY]], [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch BITCH!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Jihl Nabaat is disliked by many fans because of her treatment of Sazh and his son.[[/labelnote]]
* "[[ActionMom Moms]] [[MamaBear are tough.]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Hope's mother, putting on a brave face before going off to her death.[[/labelnote]]
* ''You think you die and that's it?! You think you die and everything's all sugar and rainbows?!'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Sazh's lines to Vanille, which gained popularity when it appeared in the English trailer.[[/labelnote]]
* FROCOBO SAYS YES/NO. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Occasionally said by LetsPlay/HCBailly during his LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7dOOy8kBJY STEELGUARD!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A sketch involving Creator/AliHillis (Lightning) and Creator/TroyBaker (Snow) dubbing over a playthrough of the game, where Snow does nothing in battle but repeatedly use his Steelguard skill, and then runs off into danger without even batting an eyelash (which bites the entire party in the ass). A related meme is "I/Bitches like/love Steelguard!" as a retort to Lightning's remark "Nobody loves Steelguard." when the party is wiped out by a BossInMooksClothing.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nG_Z0rd7eK0 Both]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MmG41Tllxo of]] IGN's {{Gag Dub}}s are [[FountainOfMemes meme-spewing fountains]] due to their ''heavy'' dosages of AlternateCharacterInterpretation. Nearly ''every'' line is a meme. No kidding. One line ("Oh, hey what's up broduskis?", said by Snow to the faction of rebel fighters) was popular enough to [[http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Oh-Hey-whats-up-Broduskis/127481277270602?sk=wall spawn its own Facebook group.]]
-->'''Sazh''': Whaddya say, little man...girl...I can't tell what the fuck you are, but we gotta roll.

[[folder:''Final Fantasy XIII-2'']]
* "The cat is my only family!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Serah's sillier Live Triggers.[[/labelnote]]
* TIME AND SPACE TIME AND SPACE TIME AND SPACE TIME AND SPACE [[labelnote:Explanation]]The last few lines of the Historia Crux theme (sung by Origa no less) done in a very bombastic manner.[[/labelnote]]
* [[MoodWhiplash While]] Creator/SquareEnix plays inappropriate music. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The number of times the story's mood swings and contrasts with the current music is numerous.[[/labelnote]]
* "Come Forth, [=PuPu=]!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Rechallenging [=PuPu=] at the coliseum will have the Arbiter say this in his hammy way. And yes, it's pronounced exactly how looks. Also, he's played by Creator/SteveBlum.[[/labelnote]]
* SO YOU THINK YOU CAN RIDE THIS CHOCOBO![[labelnote:Explanation]]The one lyric everyone remembers from Crazy Chocobo, an aptly named hard rock version of the Chocobo theme. ''Final Fantasy XIV'' named the Chocobo Racing quest after it.[[/labelnote]]
* Toriyama'd [[labelnote:Explanation]]It means that if you play a game where he had a hand in the creative development, expect the story to troll you and make no sense.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII'']]
* Hope's new handkerchief. [[labelnote:Explanation]]While people were initially upset that Hope was de-aged back to how he was in ''XIII'', the only change to that attire was oddly well received.[[/labelnote]]
* Blasted [[{{Mondegreen}} fuckball]]! [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Sazh's lines misinterpreted; it's supposed to be "Blasted fluffball!". Gained prominence since it was in a ''trailer''.[[/labelnote]]
* Meow meow choco-chow. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A sidequest involves Lightning speaking this phrase to several chocobo-costumed women. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny She gets more and more annoyed and embarrassed each time she says it.]][[/labelnote]]
* [[JustForFun/IThoughtThatWas Lightning]] [[IncrediblyLamePun returns]] ''Final Fantasy XIII''.[[labelnote:Explanation]]People were quick to point out that the title of the game was a hilarious pun. Meant to mock ''XIII'' and the fact that it spawned a trilogy.[[/labelnote]]
* Built for sex [[labelnote:Explanation]]A sarcastic comment used to criticize Lighting's complete lack of curves and a rear end (and Toriyama for liking it), despite certain outfits exposing a great deal of her body.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy XIV'']]
* LOLPATCH X.XX [[labelnote:Explanation]]A 1.0 meme, frequently posted on the official forums after a patch deemed useless goes live. Or when a massive patch goes live. Heck, when any patch goes live.[[/labelnote]]
* ARC ARC ARC ARC ARC CON CON GLA [[labelnote:Explanation]]Refers to the "optimal" class setup for clearing the 1.0 version of the Dzemael Darkhold, which is simply including as fewer melee classes as possible.[[/labelnote]]
* team b tho(ugh) [[labelnote:Explanation]]Refers to the phenomenon of how there always seems to be one alliance in the 24-person raid Crystal Tower that is pants-on-head-stupid and is causing everyone else to wipe. Has an uncanny likelihood of being Alliance B, for some reason.[[/labelnote]]
* Dragoons in ''FFXIV'' have become something of a meme in and of itself, since they have garnered a reputation for dying often in high level raids and trials. Square Enix has taken note of this reputation had have used a dead Dragoon as a gag in the trailer for 2.3 and the 16-Bit Titan fight video.
* Greg [[labelnote:Explanation]]The name Inspector Hildibrand mistakenly calls Gilgamesh. It promptly became a FanNickname for him.[[/labelnote]]
* "[=PS3=] limitations" [[labelnote:Explanation]]What Square Enix says at times whenever fans ask for a new feature to be added to the game since the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 simply can't match the 2010 gaming PCs in performance. The response has generated a meme within the community and people will generally say the meme whenever someone suggests a new game feature. This is also sort of the "child" of an ''FFXI'' meme as well; "[=PS2=] limitations" often came up as an excuse for why certain things didn't happen in that game. However, with the announcement of Playstation 3 support being dropped by 4.0, many people have already upgraded the meme to "[=PS4=] limitations", though most do it as a joke rather than being serious about it.[[/labelnote]]
* "Please look forward to it." [[labelnote:Explanation]]This is something of a stock phrase for Square Enix directors and executives in general, and Yoshida tended to use it too, especially during ''ARR'''s development. The fan base tends to use the phrase to mock him whenever there's a problem in the game they don't like. The developers have actually ''picked up'' on this one, though, and like to turn it around again, attaching the phrase, with emphasis, to reveals or discussion of hotly-anticipated content.[[/labelnote]]
* Cash shop. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Due to the highly controversial implementation of the cash shop, a service where players can use real life money to buy vanity items, many people that are displeased with the feature will utter "cash shop" whenever someone asks for a feature to be put in the game; most people who use the phrase do it to snark at Square Enix as a form of protest.[[/labelnote]]
* Yoshida giving the middle finger during a community event after being harassed and trolled by players had been screencapped and became a meme instantly with some people combining the pic with the "please look forward to it" meme. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The image may not be legit. Some believe the image was photoshopped while others believe Yoshida was showing off a ring on his middle finger.[[/labelnote]]
* "Sword of Oath", "Shield of Oath" and "Bio is Bio" [[labelnote:Explanation]]During the 21st live letter detailing all the class abilities in ''Heavensward'', Yoshida's translator, most likely owing to having both a long day and long session, started to do really bad at translating Yoshida's words to English, resulting in some pretty nonsensical statements. They learned from their blunder and allowed the translator to take her time in translating for Yoshida in the Live Letter showing off the new job skills for ''Stormblood''.[[/labelnote]]
* Skybear. As a result of an amusing glitch in a certain zone at the launch of ''Heavensward'' involving a glitched polar bear becoming stuck in mid-air, players began to treat it as a deity, going so far as to ask for it to be added as everything from a new mount, to ''a new primal.'' [[spoiler:This becomes more hilarious when you find out that this is exactly how primals are created in the context of the story.]] Now a HilariousInHindsight moment when it was announced that all of the tank exclusive mounts would be able to fly, which includes the Warrior's bear mount.
* "Jesus, Estinien, take a shower already." [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]] In ''Heavensward'', after the events of The Aery Estenien gouges out Nidhogg's eye and as a result his black armor turns a crimson color, being completely soaked in blood. He proceeds to wear this blood-soaked armor for the rest of the 3.0 main story quest.[[/labelnote]]
* "Sickness must be purged!"/"Filthy rats!"/"This shall be a mercy!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] The final dungeon boss for the Vault says this line every time it uses a specific attack in a rather hammy tone. Some find it amusing, others annoying.[[/labelnote]]
* "X" should be able to fly! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Some old mounts, such as Fenrir and the Magitek Armor, were highly requested to be given flight capabilities for ''Heavensward'' zones. Some of the mounts were given flight and as a result, there'll be at least someone once a week asking for another mount to be able to fly.[[/labelnote]]
* Glamour is the true endgame! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Said mostly as a joke by the community when it comes to vanity items like gear and decoration. Due to how insanely difficult it can be to find or make certain vanity items, many players treat it on par with hardcore raiding.[[/labelnote]]
* Derplander. [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]] Early versions of the game had a Hyur Midlander that had an UncannyValley look on his face in the CG cutscenes/trailers that made him look quite funny. Despite the fact that the rendering was vastly improved since then, many to this day still call him Derplander. 3.1 reveals that the Derplander is not only his own character instead of just being a stand in for the player, but he's also the Warrior of Darkness.[[/labelnote]]
* Welcome to the Bone Zone [[labelnote:Explanation]]A reference to the first boss of the Crystal Tower Labyrinth, Bone Dragon, usually in regard to the tanks' duties[[/labelnote]]
* Fucking moogles! [[labelnote:Explanation]] 3.0 had a lot of people upset and angry at the moogles in the Churning Mists due to nearly every sidequest from them involved going all over the huge map in an overly long FetchQuest with some objectives being difficult to find thanks to needing to search high and low while flying. What also did not help was the moogles being incredibly lazy and barely try to hide the fact when they ask the player to assist them.[[/labelnote]]
* Poptoes. [[labelnote:Explanation]] An evolved meme from ''Final Fantasy XI's'' Tataru punting where the shortfolk Lalafell race are mocked by comparing them to potatoes.[[/labelnote]]
* In order to be a real ninja, maybe you should work out a bit more. [[labelnote:Explanation]] A comment by Yoshida at a Fan Fest costume contest, directed at a rather overweight cosplayer dressed up as a ninja. Yoshi still awarded him 3rd place in the contest.[[/labelnote]]
* Troll doors. [[labelnote:Explanation]] The Aquapolis is a treasure filled dungeon where the only way to progress is to pick one of two doors and hope it's the right one. The game will very frequently bring the barrier down, shake a bit, and then rise up as the door opens and sometimes the barrier may come down completely and sound the alarm, only for rainbow lights to appear and the door opens anyway.[[/labelnote]]
* Filthy casuals. [[labelnote:Explanation]] While not a meme unique to the FF14 community, there's always a VocalMinority that will loudly voice their displeasure with the game's direction being catered to casual players or towards anyone that is not a hardcore raider/player. Many people wind up mocking the mindset and even proclaim themselves as a casual player just to provoke further.[[/labelnote]]
* Stop trying to make this game like [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI FF11!]]/This game should be more from [=FF11=]! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Two completely polarizing opinions on how ''Final Fantasy XIV'' should be. Whenever anyone brings up [=FF11=] or even suggests ideas based on the game, others will come in demanding that [=FF14=] shouldn't copy off of its predecessor.[[/labelnote]]
* Alphinaud and/or Minfilia should die! [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]] Two characters that had gathered a lot of hate from the more vocal players due to said characters ordering the player character around and don't fight (this is due to their characters being more of the diplomatic type rather than actual fighters), causing quite a number of players wanting to see the characters get killed just so they don't have to put up with them anymore. By 3.0, Alphinaud starts taking action and aids the player character directly while Minfilia sacrifices her life to be Hydaelyn's mouthpiece.[[/labelnote]]
* More Donuts. [[labelnote:Explanation]]FanNickname for Mor Dhona, though how it came to be is anyone's guess. Some speculate that it was a nickname for the area's map design in 1.0, which looked like a donut.[[/labelnote]]
* Wiping City/Wiping City of Salt. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Nickname for The Weeping City of Mhach raid due to its higher difficulty compared to Void Ark that has lead to many uncoordinated alliances to wipe against certain bosses over and over, followed by people getting upset at their alliance's incompetence.[[/labelnote]]
* Drama tanks. [[labelnote:Explanation]] A fan term that describes tank players in a not so positive manner due to some very vocal tanks getting upset, angry, and/or passive aggressive when other players in the party don't play the way they want them to or had made simple mistakes. Healers sometimes fall into this as well.[[/labelnote]]
* Balmung/Gilgamesh. [[labelnote:Explanation]] A usually insulting term (usually in the form of "Of course they're from Balmung/Gilgamesh) towards players from the Balmung or Gilgamesh server due to those two servers being the most populated for North American players, thus there's a higher chance of something absurd happening there from the VocalMinority. This later became a common refrain on lower-population servers such as Coeurl with the release of Stormblood, alongside which the developers provided enormous incentives for the aforementioned players to transfer their characters... from Balmung and Gilgamesh.[[/labelnote]]
* ERP in the Quicksand. [[labelnote:Explanation]] A term used to mock Balmung players for the absurd amount of erotic role playing found in the Quicksand, which is a tavern in Ul'dah and is highly populated by role players (both regular and erotic role playing). Most people, both jokingly and seriously, avoid going to the Quicksand because of very open ERP that goes on.[[/labelnote]]
* Active Time Maneuver.... READY! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The third fight in the final wing of Alexander (aka A11) Cruise Chaser has a very unique phase transition involving a quick time event. Usually paired with a reference to its theme song, which has quickly become a fan favorite[[/labelnote]]
* Square only listens to Japanese players. [[labelnote:Explanation]]An evolved meme from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' where English speaking players accuse the developers only paying attention to feedback from the Japanese players due to said developers responding on the Japanese forums much more often.[[/labelnote]]
** Square only listens to Balmung. [[labelnote:Explanation]] A similar meme to the previous one where people accused and passive aggressively joked that the developers were only listening to players from Balmung due to Yoshida in a live letter taking a lot of questions from Balmung players and addressing questions regarding role playing.[[/labelnote]]
* Return to the Waking Sands. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Waking Sands is the Scions base of operations at the beginning of the story. The main scenario quest makes you go there *a lot*, which is annoying since there's no convenient teleport there; Your options are to teleport to the closest place, Horizon, and walk all the way over, or go to Limsa Lominsa and take a ferry directly there. It's especially annoying after the Scions move their base to Mor Dhona, but the [=MSQ=] and various sidequests still make you go there.[[/labelnote]]
* AIDS/Eorzea AIDS. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Fan term to describe the Pox status effect in the Palace of the Dead, which are inflicted by Mimics. It's called AIDS by the players due to the effect lasting 10 minutes if you don't have the Podmander of Purity to cure it immediately. If you get Pox, you're gonna be stuck with it for a while and suffer from constant damage, weaker attacks, and natural HP regeneration being disabled.[[/labelnote]]
* "Has anyone seen Nault?" "[[{{Pun}} Nault]] today!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] A very groan worthy pun whenever someone asks where the B hunt mark, Nault, was last seen.[[/labelnote]]
* ''Sloppy!'' [[labelnote:Explanation(slight spoilers)]] The last boss of Baelsar's Wall in patch 3.5 will say this line in a very condescending manner whenever he casts a powerful attack, which is to say, most of the fight. It doesn't help that [[https://i.redd.it/suqbu25m0kay.png the man saying it is very much despised by players already]].[[/labelnote]]
* Man cats/cat boys. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Fan term describing the male Miqo'te.[[/labelnote]]
* Skipping Soar. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Containment Bay Z1T9 (Extreme) has an attack early on named Soar, which involves precise positioning and coordination. If the party can output enough damage before Zurvan uses Soar, however, Soar won't happen and the fight will move onto the next (much simpler) phase. For whatever reason, [[StopHavingFunGuys many Party Finder groups for Zurvan EX decided that skipping Soar was paramount in succeeding]], and began labelling their parties with such things as [[DisproportionateRetribution "must skip soar, low dps = kick/blacklist"]] and [[SeriousBusiness "skip soar or disband"]]. It quickly became common to mock these melodramatic groups by adding completely absurd requirements to Zurvan parties, like "must have minimum of 3 PhDs" or "fight lasts longer than 20 seconds = reporting all dps".[[/labelnote]]
* You don't pay for my sub! [[labelnote:Explanation]] This is usually said by players who get criticized over their playstyle and retort with that they can play however they want because they pay for their own subscription. People making fun of such players will use the phrase to mock them.[[/labelnote]]
* Delete Monk. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Throughout the ''Heavensward'' content cycle, the Monk job has been pushed out of the [[ComplacentGamingSyndrome "preferred" raid composition]] due to [[TierInducedScrappy its lack of raid utility compared to other DPS jobs]]. The news that the Samurai job being introduced in ''Stormblood'' would use the same armor as Monk led some to preemptively declare that Monk was being made entirely redundant altogether, with some people saying the above phrase either in sincerity or to mock those that were. Largely a DiscreditedMeme with the trailers showing off the upcoming changes to Monk, though.[[/labelnote]]
** Delete Summoner. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Similar reasons to Monk where Summoners are being pushed out of the raiding scene due to their perceived low DPS compared to other jobs, and the rebalances for the job in ''Stormblood'' only made the players angrier. Patch 4.1 finally brought drastic changes to how Summoner worked in a way that made players satisfied.[[/labelnote]]
* Rescue me! [[labelnote:Explanation]] The reveal of the Rescue skill for cross role healer jobs in ''Stormblood'' prompted many people to joke or assume that DPS players would stand in an AOE on purpose to maximize their DPS output while assuming a healer would yank them out of it.[[/labelnote]]
* Edge/Edgy Knight [[labelnote:Explanation]] FanNickname for the Dark Knight, which lightheartedly jokes about the job quest mentors telling you to harness the power of the abyss.[[/labelnote]]
* Healers should only heal! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A never ending BrokenBase over whether or not healers should just heal or throw in some DPS. People mocking healers tend to post images (such as [[http://i.imgur.com/SG9Kl9k.jpg this one]]) of the girl from the Conjurer quest that only wanted to heal.[[/labelnote]]
* Healers adjust! [[labelnote:Explanation]] The phrase is assosiated with Black Mage players who refuse to move when targeted by AOE so that they can maximise their damage output, instead demanding that healers adjust and be ready to heal them.[[/labelnote]]
* [[Manga/OnePunchMan One Punch Manticore]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] One of the consumable items you can get in the Palace of the Dead is a Pomander of Rage, which temporarily turns you into a manticore that can kill anything in one hit.[[/labelnote]]
* Raubahn and blocking progress. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Stormblood's launch suffered from a number of technical issues, though the most notable one was the very first combat instance involving Raubahn leading an ambush on a Garlean patrol. Due to the sheer amount of people trying to get in, the instance was in a constant state of overload, preventing all progress into the expansion. Cue numerous jokes about Raubahn keeping the entire NA playerbase at bay.[[/labelnote]]
** Raubahn and Pipin Savage/EX. [[labelnote:Explanation]]An extension of the previous joke where players Raubahn and Pipin on the same level as an extreme primal or savage raid due to the sheer amount of players that can't get past them.[[/labelnote]]
** Alpha and Alphinaud Savage/EX. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A copy of the previous Raubahn and Pipin meme where patch 4.2 brought back the exact same issues.[[/labelnote]]
** "A system error occurred during event movement." [[labelnote:Explanation]] The infamous error message that popped up whenever the server had problems transferring the player to instanced content during 4.0 and 4.2.[[/labelnote]]
** Raubahn was just trying to protect us! [[labelnote:Explanation]]An even ''worse'' GameBreakingBug (it temporarily ''bricked your account'' before SE patched it) in a trial shortly after Raubahn's instance has led to the playerbase joking that he was stopping you on purpose to prevent you from falling victim to it.[[/labelnote]]
* It's like all my namedays have come at once! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Grynewaht comes out with this line during the cutscene preceding the instanced portion of "Best Served With Cold Steel". Thanks to the infamous technical issues plaguing the battle during Stormblood's launch, players heard it a lot. Became an AscendedMeme in [[http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/pr/blog/002099.html this blog post.]] [[/labelnote]]
* She can stomp on me anytime! [[labelnote:Explanation]] The more perverted reactions to the reveal of Yotsuyu, who was shown stomping on Gosetsu's head with her heel.[[/labelnote]]
* Y'all need to chill out a little bit. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Yoshida's response to angry White Mage players that were upset to the changes made to their class when it was revealed.[[/labelnote]]
* [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy "Life has many doors, Ed boys!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] A carry-over from the same meme from the cartoon Ed Edd N Eddy due to Exdeath performing the exact same action and pose that Rolf did when he gave the line as he transforms into Neo Exdeath.[[/labelnote]]
* Yoshida / Square-Enix hates Summoner. [[labelnote:Explanation]]''Lots'' of Summoner players were not happy with the changes made to the job in ''Stormblood'' and later quick fix patches that adjusted the potency for some skills only made the players even angrier. With the complaints of the job being too clunky to play effectively and nothing being done to address it (even though the devs said that it would take time to make major changes to the job and it wouldn't be ready till patch 4.1), many Summoner players are outright abandoning the job and refuse to play it ever again. Many of these players feel the devs have no idea on what to do with Summoner and think they should just get rid of the job entirely.[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{Mondegreen}} Fuck you]] to the tumultuous heavens! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Susano [[CallingYourAttacks calls out]] his lightning marker attacks with a shout of "Hark you to the tumultuous heavens!" - but players heard the voice line a little differently. "Helped" by the fact that in bad pickup groups, said line tends to herald mass death, if not an outright wipe.[[/labelnote]]
* Ver-[unrelated skill] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Red Mage's skills consist of existing spells from the Black Mage and White Mage, with a "Ver-" prefix added to it. This has led to jokes at how to create new skills for the Red Mage, simply by adding "Ver-" to the beginning of the skill name, with examples like "Verhuton", "Verdreadwyrm Trance", or "Verfell Cleave"...[[/labelnote]]
* [={Hellfrog Medium}=] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Before Stormblood, typing H-E-L-L-Tab into chat would bring up the auto-translate for [={Hello!}=]. After Stormblood dropped, this sequence now brings up the newly-added skill "Hellfrog Medium", resulting in a lot of players saying it seemingly out of nowhere at the beginning of dungeons. DamnYouMuscleMemory[[/labelnote]]
* ARF til you [=bARF=]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The '''A'''etherochemical '''R'''esearch '''F'''acility has the distinction of being the only dungeon to grant 150 Tomestones of Poetics on clear, making it by far the fastest way to farm them for your {{Infinity Minus One|Sword}} Gear.[[/labelnote]]
* Shirogane (Savage), Shirogane Massacre, Shirogane Bloodbath, etc.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Some of the ''many'' nicknames given to the day Patch 4.1 dropped and people went insane trying to get houses within Shirogane.[[/labelnote]]
* Lakshmi's bosom.[[labelnote:Explanation]]When using her SignatureAttack, "Alluring Embrace", Lakshmi creates a giant projection of herself and declares, "Ressst your weary sssouls in my bosom. Partake of my life and my love..." A lot of players seem alright with [[MarshmallowHell "resting in her bosom."]][[/labelnote]]
* Glamour Toilets.[[labelnote:Explanation]]During the Letter from the Producer XL Part 1 livestream, players were introduced to the revamping of the Glamour system. One of those things was a special place to hold saved Glamours called a "Glamour Commode". ''Immediately'', people began making fun of the name as, in other areas of the world, a "commode" is commonly referred to as a "toilet". It was for exactly this reason that it was then renamed the Glamour '''''Dresser''''', but by that time it was too late to stop the memes.[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{Transgender}} HRT]] available from Mog Station [[labelnote:Explanation]]The "Fantasia" potion that allows players to fully redo character creation is invariably advertised with the same stock image of a male Midlander Hyur becoming a female Seeker of the Sun Miqo'te. Given the existence of preexisting memes comparing trans women to {{catgirl}}s, the game's LGBTFanbase naturally took notice.[[/labelnote]]
* MOTHERFUCKIN' HYPE ([[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI DOOM]]) TRAIN![[labelnote:Explanation]]In the lead up to Letter from the Producer XLI, there was a small video showing off Yoshi-P and a few others dressed up like a train. The trailer for Patch 4.2 later revealed that the Phantom Train would be a boss in the game.[[/labelnote]]
* Chocobo Satchel? I think you mean X[[labelnote:Explanation]]With the introduction of the Chocobo Satchel, players have decided to use this for a vast number of other things, most notably a tacklebox for their Fishing.[[/labelnote]]
* Talk shit, get hit. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A form of LaserGuidedKarma. If you poke fun at a fellow player or mock the ease of a raid tier battle, you're likely to be immediately damaged if not killed outright seconds later by some mechanic.[[/labelnote]]
* We waited (17) months for this!? [[labelnote:Explanation]]The launch of Eureka was not given a warm reception by the players due to massively grind happy the content was for relics and dyeable artifact armor. The reception was even worse when one remembers that Eureka was delayed twice and the devs touted that the content would be "something never seen before". Needless to say, people were not too happy with the results.[[/labelnote]]
* Has Pazuzu spawned yet? [[labelnote:Explanation]]Once players got to a high enough level in Eureka for the final Notorious Monster, Pazuzu, to drop an item needed for the final Stormblood relic weapon upgrade, it became not uncommon to see this ringing throughout the instances of Eureka (or some other variation of the phrase). Sometimes done by the same players multiple times, due to Eureka being the only instanced multiplayer content to not impose a penalty for leaving an instance, allowing players to surf across Eureka instances for Pazuzu.

* "Noctis orgy. Noctis orgy! NOCTIS ORGY!!!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]A {{Mondegreen}} of one character shouting "Noctis-''ouji''" ("Prince Noctis" in Japanese) in a trailer for ''Versus XIII''.[[/labelnote]]
* Comparisons between Noctis and Sasuke Uchiha from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', and his powers to the ''Hiraishin''.
* Comparison between the main cast and 90's [[Music/BackstreetBoys boy]] [[Music/NSync bands]].
* "''Final Fantasy Versus XIII'': [[DevelopmentHell Developed in 13 years.]]"

* "Lest the cook be sent away", and the dinner scene in general seems to be turning into this on Website/{{GameFAQs}}.
* After E3 2013, "please be excited" became a common line on gaming forums regarding ''XV'''s development and future announcements.
* After the release of the TGS 2014 gameplay trailer, some have affectionately nicknamed the game ''Final Fantasy: Road Trip''.
* Bald Tiny Wrestler Guy[[labelnote:Explanation]]The way one of the characters' hands is positioned on the steering wheel of the car and the person in in the other seat are positioned, it looks as though there's a bald man.[[/labelnote]]

* "Awoo~"[[labelnote:Explanation]]During one close-up dialogue scene, Cindy's mouth movements makes it look like she's saying "awoo~" and then smiling cutely.[[/labelnote]]
* "[[Music/GreenDay Wake me up when September Ends]]"--the reaction to ''XV'''s release date.[[note]]The initial one, that is; [[HarsherInHindsight now that it has been delayed to November...]][[/note]]
* ''Numerous'' jokes about the Wall (Lucis' magical barrier) being maintained by immigrants have sprouted in the wake of Creator/DonaldTrump's infamous "[[http://www.cnbc.com/2015/10/28/donald-trump-mexico-going-to-pay-for-wall.html Wall Speech]]".
* [[https://twitter.com/FFXVEN/status/766704251800215552 Pghjhogzzozfzgzuzhzh]][[labelnote:Explanation]]A random nonsensical tweet sent out by someone in control of the FFXVEN Twitter account. Instead of deleting it, they ignored that it had even happened and left it up, to the amusement of fans. [[https://twitter.com/FFXVJP/status/766708701730398208 Even the FFXVJP Twitter account was confused by the tweet.]][[/labelnote]]
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0HCq91j3XI&t=4m28s Erryday]]"[[labelnote:Explanation]]A line from Noct's English voice actor, Ray Chase, describing how Noct would respond to Prompto asking if he fishes every day. [[NotMakingThisUPDisclaimer And apparently he's not making this up]]; that line in the script is spelled exactly the same way. And then in the final game, it shows up in the monster coliseum when Prompt calls Noctis 'sharp' (via good betting choices), and Noct responds with "Sharp erryday" (subtitle spelling and all).[[/labelnote]]
* "HAH?!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Noct's shocked reaction to the news of Insomnia's destruction in the Japanese dub; in English, he simply gasps out "What?!"[[/labelnote]]
* Nomura's Vision[[labelnote:Explanation]]A manifestation of the game's BrokenBase. This is the phrase used to mock fans who can't (or won't) get over the fact that Nomura is no longer on the project, and are upset that ideas from ''Versus XIII'' like Stella, Mafia-Regis and Prompto's original background/look are no longer a part of the game.[[/labelnote]]
* Upon the discovery of the level 75 Tonberry Knights, numerous ''Franchise/StarWars'' jokes spawned due to their knives turning into lightsabers when attacking.
* Who the fuck is [[spoiler: Jared??!]][[labelnote:explanation]]The player meets [[spoiler:Jared]] for a few minor cutscenes early on in the game. Two chapters later he dies, and the game treats his death like a tragedy, if only because he was an old friend. Most players don't even remember who he was due to his being a minor character, leading to the aforementioned question. A few {{Flashback Cut}}s added in an update were likely made to address this.[[/labelnote]]
* "That's it! I've come up with a new recipeh!" [[labelnote:explanation]]What Ignis says whenever he concocts a new recipe. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. People tend to mock the way Ignis pronounces the word "recipe" during his recipe-discovering moments or the fact that he announces his coming up with new recipes at inappropriate moments.[[/labelnote]]
** [[AscendedMeme Ascended]] in the Moogle Chocobo Carnival and Assassin's Festival. If you order anything from the festivals' restaurants and acquire their recipes, Noctis will say the line, accent and all. (Curiously, though, Ignis is still credited for coming up with the recipe...)
*** And then the Episode Ignis [=DLC=] dropped and introduced an ability called "Quick Recipeh"...
* Noodles [[labelnote:explanation]]The unashamed advertisement of Nissin noodles both in and out of game and Gladio's bizarre enthusiasm for them stands out, to say the least.[[/labelnote]]
* IMPERIALS ABOVE US! [[labelnote:explanation]]The warning that the party members give whenever an Imperial army drops is about to drop soldiers from their ships comes up a lot, particularly since it often interrupts conversations.[[/labelnote]]
* ブスティス/ブサティス / Bustis/Busatis [[labelnote:explanation]]Japanese FanNickname (literally "Ugly-tis" from ブス/ブサイク) for how ridiculously [[{{Gonk}} unphotogenic]] Noctis is in a lot of photos when taken by Prompto, particularly in [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C4jzZsWVMAEQxpQ.jpg shots]] [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C5NAbMTUMAA0Apd.jpg of]] [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C5feBKDVMAExrGg.jpg him]] [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C3abGJeUcAA0A0J.jpg smirking]] [[http://i.imgur.com/JMLll8g.jpg face]][[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C516aCiUsAAxkwW.jpg -on]]. They've become a sort of [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C2rqjUTUcAA8XSC.jpg meme]] [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C2X7DeoVIAEQlZC.jpg face]] in Japanese fandom.[[/labelnote]]
* Spidey Prom! [[labelnote:explanation]]About one year after the release of the game, Creator/{{Marvel}} came out with [[WesternAnimation/MarvelsSpiderMan a new Spider-Man cartoon]], with Prompto's English voice actor playing Peter Parker. This caused quite a few western fans to start drawing Prompto in Spider-Man's costumes and creating comics depicting him defending the city of Insomnia from villains that are a mix of the villains from the game and Spidey's rogues gallery.[[/labelnote]]
* [[Film/Titanic1997 Paint me like one of your French girls]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Due to a [[https://i.redd.it/5q3sjm78t61y.jpg pose]] the Cactuar will sometimes strike in battle.[[/labelnote]]
* Giving characters beards to age them up.[[labelnote:explanation]]Three out of the four main cast end up with facial hair after the TimeSkip, and when Ravus shows up in the alternate ending of ''Episode Ignis'', the only thing he has to for it is a goofy looking white beard, and everything else about him is unchanged. So people started joking about and Photoshopping beards onto Iris and Aranea for their World of Ruin designs. Of course, when Cor's appearance was revealed in the UpdatedRerelease, he also gets a beard.[[/labelnote]]
* [[Anime/DragonBallSuper Ultra Instinct]] Ignis. [[labelnote:explanation]]After Ignis uses the Ring of the Lucii to face off against Ardyn, he begins glowing faintly blue with particles floating upwards off of him. Comparisons between him and Goku's newest transformation started pouring in. It becomes especially appropriate with Ignis' combat mechanics, which allow him to counter, take no damage and respond to any attack - comparable to the Ultra Instinct form.[[/labelnote]]
* [[https://i.redd.it/0re5pzxvy7n01.jpg A close-up]] of the royal monuments in the Insomnia Ruins reveals the name of the 108th King of Lucis to be ''Optimus'' Lucis Caelum. Cue ''{{Franchise/Transformers}}'' jokes.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wxRovS_1hc LEG CRAMP!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Laguna's unfortunate habit of getting a leg cramp when he tries to talk to women, carried over to ''Dissidia 012'' from his original appearance in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', hilariously displayed in a scene with Cloud of Darkness.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i212/Kerrah_photos/SoYeah.jpg By now,]] [[MemeticMolester Kuja should be having his way with Zidane and Bartz]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A famous bit of AccidentalInnuendo (or maybe not so accidental), in which Ultimecia taunts Squall about the teammates he ditched.[[/labelnote]]
* Gimme a bite of SPICY HOT TACOS! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Prishe's secret voice clips replace her HP attack calls, EX Mode and EX Burst dialogue with comments about her being hungry and wanting various types of food. Thus there's some five or six of these, but this is the one that really caught on.[[/labelnote]]
* [[MostAnnoyingSound Well now! Well now! Well now!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Kuja's line while dodging, which quickly becomes annoying when heard over and over again.[[/labelnote]]
* [[MostAnnoyingSound Seriously!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Shantotto's line while performing Bind, which is just as annoying as Kuja's dodge quote.[[/labelnote]]
* [[ComicBook/CivilWar You're]] ''[[ComicBook/CivilWar all]]'' [[ComicBook/CivilWar fucked when]] [[MemeticBadass Gilgamesh]] gets back. Gilgamesh's Army [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome will have their vengeance]]!!! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A faction of fans proclaiming that everyone will play dearly for excluding fan-favorite Gilgamesh in the original ''Dissidia''. This is based on the "You're all fucked when the Hulk gets back" meme popular during the Marvel ''ComicBook/CivilWar''. And now that Gilgamesh in is ''Duodecim'', this has been occasionally mutated further into "So... are we fucked yet?"[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozAjuxRKo1k Too...]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWSy7gHccqI many...]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1uB964Ggg0 innue]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4rxJ9mfk_M dos...]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Let's just say that aside from {{Mondegreen}}s and FoeYay, ''Dissidia'' is also infamous for {{Accidental Innuendo}}es.[[/labelnote]]
* [[TookALevelInBadass GARland]] and "Creator/ChristopherSabat (or Creator/KenjiUtsumi) ''[[MemeticBadass will]]'' [[WhosLaughingNow knock you all down.]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Garland going from the first and ''easiest'' boss in ''FF'' history to a hickory-smoked machine of death and destruction.[[/labelnote]]
* From the ''Duodecim'' trailers, DEM FEET. [[labelnote:Explanation]]From the trailer, where we're given a brief shot of Yuna walking on water. Only her lower body is visible, with her bare feet being prominent.[[/labelnote]]
* Also from ''Duodecim'', [[BareYourMidriff DEM ABS]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Vaan's notable lack of a shirt, carried over from his original appearance.[[/labelnote]]
* The WordSaladTitle that is ''Dissidia 012: Duodecim Final Fantasy'' has been subject to several parody titles.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3-vsYN6flM "THUNNDAGAAAAAAA!!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]This is one of Lightning's quotes in ''Dissidia 012'', apparently when she uses Thundaga.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2K4GjdtkEk BWAH-HAH-HAH-HAH!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A particularly {{Narm}}ful example of Exdeath's hamminess.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Golbez]] keeps his pimp hand strong. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A few of Golbez's attack annimations includes a wide swinging backhand or "pimp slap."[[/labelnote]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUqwvQKap3I "Tough Love" Machinima,]] a Valentine's Day-centered short featuring ''Dissidia'' characters, gives us these:
** "Feel the wrath of '''[[TheUnintelligible RAGIWHAMIDOODOODA!!!!]]'''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Cloud's rage at Squall believing his relationship with Zack to be that of HoYay, leading Cloud to go into a long warcry/{{summon|Magic}} chant... that does nothing. At least to him.[[/labelnote]]
** "NO! I DON'T WANT YOUR GODFORSAKEN TEST-TUBE EXPERIMENTAL BABIES!!!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Kefka's response to Squall saying "Tell me you want my babies!"[[/labelnote]]
** "Hey, Jerry!" "Yeaaaah, Jerry?" "Did you hear about who's at Squall's place?" "No, I didn't. Because if I did I probably would have answered with 'who was at Squall's place?!'" "Well, I heard it was '''JENOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVAAAAAAAAAAAA­AAA!!!!!'''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Cloud's fake conversation out-of-sight to dick with Sephiroth for wooing Terra, which leads to the first instance of the line below.[[/labelnote]]
** "Jenova? '''JENOVA?!''' '''''JENOOOOOOOOOOVAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!''''' '''[[MadnessMantra JENOVAJENOVAJENOVAJENOVAJENOVA]]'''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A RunningGag poking fun at Sephiroth's "mommy issues" by having Sephiroth break down into an incoherent, nearly epileptic fit at the mention of the words "Jenova" or "mother."[[/labelnote]]
** "'''I USED TO BE A WHALE!'''" "'''YOU WANTED TO BE A WHALE?!'''" "'''OF COURSE I WANTED TO BE A WHALE!!!'''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Jecht's PunctuatedPounding of his son Tidus after he thwarts Jecht's attempt to have Sephiroth give him a blowjob. Makes fun of Sin (the monster Jecht was unintentionally transformed into), as it resembles a giant space whale.[[/labelnote]]
** Probably mentionable that all of the above quotes where written by the same Machinimator, whose Website/YouTube account is [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Dexterboy124 here.]]
*** He was also responsible for the equally memetic [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHEj3XZqEmE "Real Men"]] Machinima.
** Speaking about Real Men Machinima, "Only Real Men Do X" is usually played whenever a thread about this video is posted.
** And the RAGIWHAMIDOODOODA!!! was originated from Real Men Machinima. The effect's also worked accurately in this video, where the summon caused Squall and [[spoiler:[[HoistByHisOwnPetard Cloud]]]] to freezing in the midair for several seconds.
* Shantrollto. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Shantotto ALWAYS makes fun of her opponents, even if they look like her, with rhymes. ''"Jack of all weapons, master of none."''[[/labelnote]]

* [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Hooray, I win! FTW!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The iconic ''Final Fantasy'' Victory Fanfare, used in the successful completion of any task. It was given a ShoutOut in ''[[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]]'' as Loz's ring tone, and many people have tried to add their own lyrics to the tune.[[/labelnote]]
* Kimi ga Yo (2008-) [[labelnote:Explanation]]A Website/NicoNicoDouga meme, which involves setting the lyrics of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimigayo Japanese national anthem]] to a medley of the ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' and ''Final Fantasy'' main themes. If you've already heard about it, it's probably because of the infamous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrWgcSi5ACo Kumikyoku Nico Nico Douga.]][[/labelnote]]
* "Please be excited" [[labelnote:Explanation]]At the UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 unveiling in February 2013, Shinji Hashimoto said this after showing a tech demo from the previous year and promising something new at E3.[[/labelnote]]
* "Weather" reports.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Given how many ''Final Fantasy'' protagonists are named for weather formations, expect a weather report featuring name puns (example: A Cloud-y day is ahead. Beware of Squalls, with high chances of Lightning and Snow).[[/labelnote]]
