[[caption-width-right:270:"Contract?"]]

Despite being a cruel [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] of the MagicalGirl genre,(or possibly because of it) ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has generated a surprising amount of [[MemeticMutation memes]]. Because being meguca is suffering...

----
''Please add entries in the following format:''
* The meme. [=[[=]labelnote:Explanation[=]]=]The explanation behind the meme, if necessary.[=[[=]/labelnote[=]]=] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Like this.[[/labelnote]]
** Further mutations and successor memes, if any.
----

* [[http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/3887/1294896579218.jpg ONCE YOU POP THE FUN DON'T STOP]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Based on the resemblance of the Anthonies, the very first monsters Madoka and crew encounter, to the Pringles mascot. (In episode 8, Kyoko eats canned potato chips very similar to Pringles. AscendedMeme?)[[/labelnote]]
* Deny the obvious, uphold the inane! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Originated in a ImageBoards /a/ in response to a bout of InsaneTrollLogic.[[/labelnote]]
* [[spoiler:[[MuvLuvAlternative HEADCHOMP]]]] and variations. [[labelnote:Explanation (major spoilers!)]]The series' local CoolBigSis Mami Tomoe was decapitated and eaten alive by the witch Charlotte in [[WhamEpisode episode 3.]][[/labelnote]]
** [[spoiler: MAMI MOGU MOGU.]] [[labelnote:Explanation (major spoilers!)]] ''Mogu mogu'' is a Japanese onomatopoeia for ''eating'' or ''chewing'', thus the phrase can be translated as "Mami Chomp".[[/labelnote]]
** [[spoiler:OM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM]]
** [[spoiler:Headless]] Mami. There's more merchandise of her than you can shake a musket at.
** Even the ANN has made a crack at this scene when announcing that [[spoiler:Mami]] would adorn her own cake starting in April 2012: [[spoiler:The Mami figure is not edible.]]
*** And when a [[spoiler:Charlotte]] plush toy measuring at 4 feet was announced in October 2013: [[spoiler:Let's just say it's big enough that someone's head could fit in its mouth.]]
** Fanartists have developed a streak of BlackComedy when it comes to depicting [[spoiler:Mami]] post episode 3, in particular [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/839846/ showing her with]] [[{{Durarara}} Celty]] (Link has NSFW advertisements.).
*** And more [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6wrqbHK9m1r48mayo1_r1_1280.png recently with]] [[{{Homestuck}} Dirk Strider]].
** The victim of that scene has practically [[PersonAsVerb verbified]]; "to [[spoiler:Mami]]" can now mean to [[spoiler:OffWithHisHead]].
** [[IWantMyHatBack I WANT]] [[spoiler:MY HEAD]] [[http://askheadlessmami.tumblr.com/post/13051173620/i-want-my-head-back BACK]]
** Even the Japanese voice cast has had their fun with it; in a subtitled foreword that they gave before international showings of the [[CompilationMovie films]], [[spoiler:KaoriMizuhashi, who voiced Mami]], is given the title of [[spoiler:"[[IncrediblyLamePun Head]] of [[WhamEpisode Shocking Events]]"]]
* Kyubey stares into your soul. /人[[color:crimson:◕]]‿‿[[color:crimson:◕]]人\\ [[labelnote:Explanation (with spoilers!)]]The series has taken the staple MentorMascot of the MagicalGirl Genre and made him/it into something rather nefarious. Kyubey will grant you a wish if you make a contract with him by becoming a magical girl and hunting witches (which actually has bad consequences in the long run), and if you ''don't'' make a contract with him, he'll pester you until you do, brandishing [[http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g310/AShadow17/Kyubey.jpg one and only one cute but creepy as hell facial expression.]][[/labelnote]]
** He ''also'' wants you to [[Advertising/{{Geico}} save a bunch of money on your car insurance]], which is a whole other can of memes.
** "I don't understand this at all" - said by Kyubey quite a few times emotionlessly when he fails to understand why humans would consider certain traumatic experiences or revelations traumatic. [[spoiler: Rises to AscendedMeme status in [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion Rebellion]] when it is [[SpeakInUnison screamed as one by countless Incubators]] in a ThisCannotBe moment, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome as their plans crumble around them.]]]]
** [[ParanoiaFuel AAAAAHHHHH!!!]]
** [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/pool/show/2939 Everybody Hates]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYhWYzSU7-M Kyubey]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] The rage that Kyubey has generated, and the subsequent fanart depicting it being abused, is enormous. A meme that originates from {{Pixiv}}.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.sankakucomplex.com/2011/02/24/qb-conquers-akihabara "Let's make a contract?"]] (Link has NSFW advertisements.)
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lcottCoAjk Somehow, he made a contract with Adolf Hitler]].
** It should be noted that Kyubey is a FountainOfMemes.
* In Japan (real life), you eat cake. [[spoiler:[[RussianReversal In Soviet Russia (magical world)]], cake eats YOU''!!'']] [[labelnote:Explanation (Episode 3 spoiler)]] Mami made a suggestion to wish for cake, guess where and HOW she died.[[/labelnote]]
* I r in ur magical anime, [[spoiler: KILLIN UR MAGICAL GIRLZ.]] [[labelnote:Explanation (major spoilers!)]] This pertains to the AnyoneCanDie nature of the show, and as of EP 10, only 2 of them remain (One actually, if you count the previous 4 timelines).[[/labelnote]]
* Because of the general depressing and horrific nature of the show, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PD-_oLjmCGY "MORNING RESCUE" Japanese commercial]] that a certain fansubbing group left in has been [[MoodWhiplash the only thing considered as a safe haven]]. [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/859891/ Taken to its]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xv8tqS_h9Ew logical conclusion.]] (Spoilers in both links!)
** ...And conversely, a certain {{WMG}} that Morning Rescue is actually [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion LCL]] has shattered what little refuge was previously believed to exist. '''''[[DespairEventHorizon NO ESCAPE.]]'''''
** And now [[http://www.jlist.com/product/DRK019 J-List has started carrying Morning Rescue]], ''[[TheRedStapler specifically]]'' [[TheRedStapler because of the meme]].
** Just to let you ''not escape'' Kyubey just changed Morning Rescue to Morning Res'''KYUBEY'''.
* [[spoiler: [[DarkerThanBlack NOW SHE'S LOST IT / SHE KNOWS SHE CAN KILL]]]] [[labelnote:Explanation (major spoilers!)]]This refers to Sayaka's major FreakOut at the end of EP 7.[[/labelnote]]
* You thought it was a cute girl? Too bad! It was just Sayaka-chan! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Originated in a ImageBoards as a form of bait and switch trolling on Japanese imageboard sites.[[/labelnote]]
* "being meguca is suffering..." [[labelnote:Explanation]] From joke threads on an ImageBoard that use OffModel pictures of the characters called Meduka Meguca. [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Meduka_meguca All five "episodes" are available here.]] (Major spoilers!) [[/labelnote]]
** Some lines from the Meduka Meguca "series" have become particularly memetic:
*** "mumi why" [[labelnote:Explanation]] Meduka's reaction to [[spoiler: Mumi's death.]][[/labelnote]]
*** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUZ0Hm-_pbI do not throw souls]]!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] Coobie's reaction to Meduka tossing Seyiku's [[SoulJar Sool Jim.]][[/labelnote]]
*** Referring to Walpurgis Night as "Brazilian Night" and rendering her laugh as "huehuehuehuehue huahuahuahuahua".[[labelnote:Explanation]] This refers to another meme about the bad behavior of Brazilian MMORPG players, which involves them being Hyenas much like Walpurgis Night.[[/labelnote]]
** "being _____ is suffering..." [[labelnote:Explanation]] The above led to many of these statements.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.atalude.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/widemadoka.jpg We need to go wider.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POjj67bIQiU WIIIIIIIDER.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Creator/UmeAoki, author of ''Manga/HidamariSketch'' and character designer of ''Madoka Magica'', is well-known for her SuperDeformed "widefaces". However, being a GRIMDARK anime, ''Madoka Magica'' contains ''no'' widefaces. The fans' desire for widefaces was, in an image macro, combined with the ''{{Inception}}'' meme "We need to go deeper." Eventually, an ''Inception''''Madoka Magica'' crossover video was made.[[/labelnote]]
** This became HilariousInHindsight after ''[[PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion Rebellion]]''. [[spoiler: The movie takes place in what is essentially a dream world.]]
* Homerun-chan [[labelnote:Explanation]] FanNickname for Homura derived from the Japanese spelling of her name, which sounds like "home run" (''homuran'').[[/labelnote]]
* [[VerbalTic Homu homu]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Homura's fan-based VerbalTic, adopted in nearly ''any situations''. Because it's a shortening of her nickname and makes her look a bit cuter. If you happen to go to {{Pixiv}}, it's practically ''omnipresent''.[[/labelnote]]
* Homura, for [[RuleOfCute one reason]] [[EpilepticTrees or another]], is often drawn with [[UnusualEars cat ears]]. Sometimes this spills over into a full-blown LittleBitBeastly portrayal.
** Might be an AscendedMeme as in the Halloween event of the online game Madoka Magica Online Homura is using a [[http://mm.swiki.jp/index.php?plugin=attach&refer=%E3%82%B9%E3%82%AD%E3%83%AB%2F%E7%94%BB%E5%83%8F&openfile=%E4%BB%AE%E8%A3%85%E3%81%97%E3%81%9F%E3%81%BB%E3%82%80%E3%82%89.jpg cat costume]].
* After people clamoring over the FridgeLogic[=/=][[FridgeHorror Horror]] of [[spoiler:Sayaka's body still being in that hotel room]]: [[OfCorpseHesAlive Weekend]] [[Film/WeekendAtBernies at Sayaka's]].
** Episode 11 softens it somewhat: [[spoiler:It's shown that her body ''was'' found.]]
* "If I wished for it, would Kyubey let me fuck him/her/it?", accompanied by a cropped image of [[{{Rule 34}} Kyubey porn]]. And yes, not only does it exist, there is also a disturbing large amount of it.
* Misspelling "Walpurgis Night", ''e.g.'' Whatsburger Night, UsefulNotes/{{Walmart}} Night, Walrus Night, Creator/WaltDisney Night, [[TheHyena Brazilian]] [[OffModel Night]], [[OverlyLongGag Walgreens Night...]]
* "That won't be necessary" [[labelnote:Explanation]] Homura's CatchPhrase, used on 4komas whenever Kyubey is about to convince Madoka to make a contract in exchange for solving a trivial problem, like forgetting her homework or lunch, or running out of shampoo. Usually accompanied by Homura delivering said item and/or beating/shooting the crap out of Kyubey.[[/labelnote]]
* [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure ZA WARUDO!]] [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers!)]]In Episode 8, it is revealed that Homura has the ability to stop time, much like Dio Brando and [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Sakuya Izayoi]]. The fanbase, naturally, has run with it. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naduyJ8bMg8 Best shown in this video]][[/labelnote]]
* In Episode 4, Madoka finds Hitomi being controlled by a witch. When Madoka attempts to run away, Hitomi stops her by slamming her in the stomach. Now most fanart with her in it [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/851984/ somehow]] [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/856073 involve]] [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/857296/ tummy]] [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/879779/ punching]].
** [[spoiler:[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Taken to its]] [[http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=27968299 logical conclusion]].]].
* After the finale came out in April 2011, there's suddenly a lot of noise about [[spoiler: NAKED LESBIAN SPACE HUGS and [[FanNickname Magodka/Godoka/Madokami]].]]
** [[IntellectualPropertyReligion The Church of Madoka]][[spoiler:[=/=]Madoka died for your sins.[=/=]Do you accept Madoka as your Lord and Savior?]]
*** [[spoiler:[[SerialExperimentsLain Serial Experiments Madoka]]/[[DevilMayCry Homura May Cry]].]] [[labelnote:Explanation (major spoilers for Lain and Madoka)]] Madoka rewriting herself out of existence like Lain for the former and the latter when Madoka's wish caused beings referred as demons rather than witches to appear. The last scene in the final episode shows Homura WalkingTheEarth hunting these things, much like Dante does in his series.[[/labelnote]]
** [[spoiler:I am Penitent Gretchen, or rather, Kriemhild Gretchen as she should have been.]] [[labelnote:Explanation (major spoilers!)]]Kriemhild Gretchen's idea of salvation is absorbing all life into her barrier, whereas Penitent Gretchen's idea of salvation is preventing witches from existing in the first place, so magical girls that are due to become witches instead go to Heaven with her. Thus, Penitent Gretchen's idea of salvation is preferable to Kriemhild Gretchen's. Also a reference to one of Gandalf's lines in TheLordOfTheRings once he comes back as Gandalf the White, or "Saruman as he should have been."[[/labelnote]]
*** The finale is often referred to as End of Madoka due to the similarities between End of Evangelion and it. [[MindScrew Somewhat]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hF0zP4ukkKg Madoka Old Spice]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Youtuber LilyPichu was amused by [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=12943821940A52797100&page=669#16719 this parody]] of the famous Old Spice commercial and made a video out of it.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Unlimited _____ Works]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Mami and her amazing barrage of rifles could be put in a format similar to Archer's Unlimited Blade Works. Same with Sayaka's cutlasses. The best example is definitely episode 11, where Homura pulls an Unlimited ''[[MoreDakka Every Military Weapon]]'' Works...[[/labelnote]]
** On that last one: [[spoiler:Unlimited Explosives Don't Work]]
* [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/pool/show/3171 The Perverted Homura]] - ({{NSFW}})[[labelnote:Explanation]] Due to the large LesYay aspects of the show, Homura's interest in Madoka is [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] UpToEleven in this picture meme turning her into a MemeticMolester. Molesting, peeping, panty stealing, stalking and more... Nothing will stop Homura in her quest of Madoka. And for some mysterious reason she has an odd VerbalTic of "homu" and/or "homu homu". In later ones, she will start wearing Madoka's panties on her head. It should be noted that this is ''also'' omnipresent on {{Pixiv}}, where this meme also orginates.[[/labelnote]]
** Then after the finale, [[spoiler: a whole slew of fanart appeared depicting goddess!Madoka turning the tables on Homura, usually by using her omniscience to peep on her.]]
** Then comes [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion the Movie Rebellion]], [[spoiler: it completely turns around on goddess!Madoka when devil!Homura captures and usurps her position as god.]]
* [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/881025 Tiro Finale (Physical)]] [[note]]This one's a reference to a little known 80s Al Pacino flick known as ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cruising_%28film%29 Cruising]]'', and in particular a scene where a guy who the Japanese have dubbed "Tengaron (Ten-Gallon) Gentleman" (a.k.a. "the guy who REALLY likes Mami-san") bitchslaps someone. The above meme is the name they've given to the bitchslap in question. Also, Tiro Finale has become the name of any form of Mami attacking physically, or brutalizing Kyubey from the 'everybody hates Kyubey' meme above.[[/note]]
* [[http://wiki.puella-magi.net/Mami%27s_mammies Mami's]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--G9SMhTOfo mammies]]. [[note]] Mami is the most well-endowed Puella Magi, and the mispronunciation of her name kind of sounds like "mammary." (The correct pronunciation sounds more like "mommy") [[/note]]
* LOVE ME DO! \( * 3`*)/ [[note]]A background line that became completely entangled with Sayaka and her {{shipping}} partner(s).[[/note]]
* [[MemeticBystander Poorfag]]/[[FanNickname Poor-chan and Failurefag]]. Poor-chan in particular has gotten fanart, comics, Puella Magi [[spoiler: and witch]] forms, shipped with [[BoobsOfSteel Mami]] or [[DarkActionGirl Kyouko]], and a series of stories on 4Chan [[RunningGag about]] [[ThePollyanna her]] PerpetualPoverty. [[note]][[http://images.puella-magi.net/a/af/Poorfagsgonnapoor.jpg A student with no laptop in an entire classroom where everybody else does]] in Madoka's classroom was adopted by fans. [[http://images.puella-magi.net/3/3f/Failurefag_gonna_fail.png A frustrated boy in the same shot]] appears to be following suit.[[/note]]
** There's a chance that the animator intended to draw a Libretto W100 folding tablet.
* Cake Planet. [[note]]There is [[http://img571.imageshack.us/img571/9444/4kidsmadoka.jpg an image]] circulating around the Internet of a hypothetical localization by 4KidsEntertainment, censoring the infamous scene from episode 3 by claiming "Mary" is actually ''an alien'' and returning to the "Cake Planet". Because [=4Kids=] dubbing such a dark, tragic, and violent anime the way they normally handle things would be ''[[SoBadItsGood hilarious]]''.[[/note]]
** And somewhat HilariousInHindsight, as it was recently revealed that ABC3 will [[https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/935907_10151453659247478_920885233_n.jpg be airing]] the anime in ''prime time''. [[TemptingFate Let's just sit and wait until episode 3 kicks in.]]
*** [[spoiler:[[{{Anticlimax}} They kept it in]].]]
* I was... such a fool/I was... such an idiot: [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers!)]]Sayaka's last words before she turns into a witch, said with [[http://kurogane.animeblogger.net/image/winter2011/madoka_08_02.jpg this face]] which is usually [[http://earsucker.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/katy-perry-fool-lifeandstyle.jpg joked about]]. Common jokes include comics of her experiencing encounters that are not particularly serious, and yet still saying this line with the same face.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://en.dic.pixiv.net/a/Madoka+Titus Mado]][[{{Gundam AGE}} Titus]][[note]]After [[http://sonohara.donmai.us/data/0e182d9d1e22b84e77ad4b0676690e9f.jpg this]] image appeared on [[http://nov.2chan.net/y/res/2371266.htm a Japanese]] ImageBoard, fanart of the creation [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post?tags=gundam_age-1_titus+kaname_madoka soon followed]] ({{Danbooru}} link).[[/note]]
** Homura Spallow
** HilariousInHindsight when [[MobileSuitGundamAGE Gundam AGE]] actually gave us a magical girl-esque mobile suit, the [[http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/age/xvb-fnc.htm Fawn Farsia]].
* [[RunningGag Yeah, it's that kind of show.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] A meta RunningGag on this very wiki that aimed to show that it is a DarkerAndEdgier {{Deconstruction}} series.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/all_comments?v=laTRlKXrCXk You're mine Madoka, mine, mine, mine]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]] The dub version of what Sayaka said to Madoka in the 1st episode.[[/labelnote]]
* Mami is forever alone/lonely Mami is lonely. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Unlike Madoka/Homura and Kyoko/Sayaka, Mami isn't part of any obvious pairing in the anime. A fair amount of official art shows the rest of them being couply and Mami just...being there. This can end up HarsherInHindsight in the PSP game because [[spoiler:this meme is the thing that turned Mami into a witch]]. More or less has died out since Nagisa's introduction into the series, giving Mami a partner.[[/labelnote]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bI9hgp32-f0 Girls can't love girls!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The dub's take on Hitomi's "That's forbidden love". ...the crying and repeating of the phrase makes it sound like she's having a breakdown.[[/labelnote]]
* It's become quite common for fanart to depict Madoka as a white harp seal, or "Gomadoka/Sealdoka" (a pun off "goma", the Japanese word for spotted seal).
** Less known are Homuotter, Dolphin Sayaka, Penguin Kyoko, and Jellyfish Mami.
* "homura [[spoiler: [[https://www.google.com/search?q=homura+resets+the+timeline&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a resets the timeline"]]]] [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers!)]] An (arguably forced) meme common on Tumblr, depicting Homura [[SaveScumming creating an alternate timeline]] in response to such [[ComicalOverreacting trivial things]] as Madoka making a bad joke or Mami becoming a fan of {{Twilight}}. [[/labelnote]]
* Luminous[[labelnote:Explanation]] The scene of Madoka and Homura [[LesYay rubbing their cheeks together]] from the movie opening. It has gained it's name from the theme song of the same movie[[/labelnote]]
* ''Madoka'' is the ''Evangelion'' of anime. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A parody of the phrase "X is the ''Evangelion'' of [it's medium].[[/labelnote]]
* Thanks to SFDebris, "Bunnycat is a ''dick''" is gaining traction.
* [[PuellaMagiOrikoMagica ORIKO WAS RIGHT]] [[labelnote:Explanation]][[WellIntentionedExtremist Oriko's]] plan is to [[spoiler:kill Madoka, preventing Gretchen]]. The phrase became a rallying cry for people who thought Homura's attempts to save her were selfish. Only became more popular after the movie.[[/labelnote]]
** If Oriko was right, why did she wear a bucket on her head? [[labelnote:Explanation]]A reference to Oriko's NiceHat, which looks uncannily like a bucket. It's probably [[WistfulAmnesia brainwashing-resistant]] tinfoil hat.[[/labelnote]]
* What do I look like, a fucking miracle worker? [[labelnote:Explanation]]A quote originating from [[http://angeban.tumblr.com/post/66399292122/even-kyubey-has-his-limits this comic]]. It's oft used as a joke whenever somebody wants to wish for a simple thing like happiness.[[/labelnote]]
* PEDO MAMI [[labelnote:Explanation]]In response to Pairing [[http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/akumade_homuhomu_homuhomu_only#23 Mami]] with [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/1602540?tags=momoe_nagisa+tomoe_mami Nagisa]] [[spoiler: AKA Charlotte]] [[/labelnote]]
