''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 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.[[/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]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy IV'']]
* "You spoony bard!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The infamous {{Woolseyism}} when Tellah chews Edward out after his {{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 {{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 ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', there was a secret voice file accessible only when the player had a Level 100 Golbez, consisting of this line alone.[[/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'']]
* "[[GenreSavvy 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]]

[[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'']]
* [[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.[[/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]]
* Bells frogs, big cherries, peter pan, magic cheese... SEPHIROTH [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another Mondegreen, this time of the lyrics to 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]]Zack's win quote in ''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'']]
* Final Fantasy IX 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.[[/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 /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 into the ''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 something, presumably in Al Bhed, over the loud speakers over and over. What he's ''actually'' saying is "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]]

[[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]]
* "How do I kite Faust?"
* JP Button >
** Claim NM
** Get Gil
** Make HQ
** Be Stronger
** Get Drop
* A Japanese one: [[http://www.jpbutton.com/?p=718 "The fog is so thick I can't see the screen!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The words of a rather misguided Beastmaster party leader in response to his party being heavily damaged in a fight.[[/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]]

[[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]]''!
* "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]]

* "[[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 NO. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by LetsPlay/HCBailly during his LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', due to Sazh's HeadPet denying him a PantyShot from Vanille.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7dOOy8kBJY STEELGUARD!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A sketch involving Creator/AliHillis (Lightning) and 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.]]
* '''GIVE ME COFFEE!! FOR THE HORSE!! ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis FOOOOOOR!! THEEEEEEE!! HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORSE!!]]''''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]A popular {{Mondegreen}} for the opening lyrics of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qyavbSmxW4 penultimate boss theme]].[[/labelnote]]


[[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:''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 obviously can't match a PC 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.[[/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 Yoshi's words to English, resulting in some pretty nonsensical statements.[[/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.]]
* "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!" [[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]]
* 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]]

[[folder:''Final Fantasy Tactics'' and ''Final Fantasy Tactics Advance'']]
* The people of Ivalice were left with l...i...t...t...l...e... m...o...n...e...y... [[labelnote:Explanation]]From one of the very first narrations of the game (the ellipses represent unskippable pauses between each letter).[[/labelnote]]
* This was the darkened items won't appear. [[labelnote:Explanation]]An instance of the terrible translation job in the UsefulNotes/PlayStation version of the game.[[/labelnote]]
* I got a good feeling! [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of the things the generics sent on jobs can report back, which was given a ShoutOut in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII''.[[/labelnote]]
* Defeat Dycedarg's elder brother! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The (incorrect) mission objective where you have to defeat ''your/Ramza's'' elder brother, Dycedarg himself .[[/labelnote]]
* ANIMALS HAVE NO GOD! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Algus/Argath, expressing his opinion of non-nobles in one of the many, many, MANY moments that will cause the player to hate him.[[/labelnote]]
* FUCK THAT, YOU'RE GOING HOME! [[labelnote:Explanation]]From ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'', this more or less sums up a common interpretation of all the CharacterDevelopment that Marche gets through the game, causing people to consider him a DesignatedHero.[[/labelnote]]
* Marche was right. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Related to the above, used by those who defend Marche's actions.[[/labelnote]]

* Because of the intensity of the battle and the less than perfect pronunciation of the voice actors, ''Dissidia'' has become infamous for {{Mondegreen}}s, many (if not all) have risen to MemeticMutation level. Some of the most famous include "GET THE FRUIT!", "Naive Weekly!", "To asylum beyond!", "I bring you dis pear," "Supper!", "There is no butter for this plane," and "Dorks unite!" More can be heard in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOx1ghg8CMg these]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0dxSYgvwn8 videos.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PG7lvNkyPZs Might I mention that the mouse is]] '''[[LargeHam SMACK]]'''! [[DullSurprise ... dab in the middle of enemy territory.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Kefka's lines to Zidane, in reference to Bartz.[[/labelnote]]
* You've been KEFKAROLL'D! [[MonsterClown BAH!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]An (unfortunately removed) video mashing up several of Kefka's lines and mannerisms from the Japanese version of ''Dissidia'' with music, in a Rick Roll-esque fashion.[[/labelnote]]

[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWD2TktjNM8 HEAVENS!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A reference to the Emperor's similar look to Jareth (played by Music/DavidBowie) in ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'', and referencing the phrases he uses to indicate his also memetic "Starfall" attack.[[/labelnote]]
* The copious amounts of FoeYay in the game, illustrated in [[http://ra-hime.deviantart.com/art/Dissidia-Foe-Yay-153909307 this image.]] The Emperor is "'''[[AmbiguouslyGay UNGAAAAAHBULOUS!!]]'''"
** That's why ''Dissidia'' ''[[FoeYay/DissidiaFinalFantasy has its own Foe Yay page]]''.
* [[MemeticBadass Captain Jecht]]. '''[[CatchPhrase HE'S THE BEST!]]''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]A reference to Jecht from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', who is now considered the ''Final Fantasy'' equivalent of Captain Falcon due to "Triumphant Grasp" bearing a very noticeable resemblance to Falcon Punch, and the fact Jecht is a LightningBruiser using only his kick and punch combos compared to the other characters. In addition, we have "'''RE-JECHT-ED!'''" and "'''OBJECHTION!'''" for whenever Jecht does something badass and simultaneously nullifies ''anything'' that his opponent tries to throw at him. Also often sarcastically mutated to refer to his stellar parenting skills regarding Tidus.[[/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 ''Franchise/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]]
