%%[=*=] Meme name: [=[[=]labelnote:Explanation]]description of meme and how it's used.[[/labelnote]]

A large amount of this originates from [[WesternAnimation/StreetFighter the American cartoon series]] and [[Film/StreetFighter the first live-action film]]. A good portion of the memes relate to [[BigBad M. Bison]].

!''[[Film/StreetFighter Street Fighter: The Movie]]''
* '''The day Bison graced was the most important day of your life. "[[ButForMeItWasTuesday But for me, it was Tuesday]]."''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Bison's [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome crowning moment of awesome]], when Chun-Li called him out for [[YouKilledMyFather killing her father]]. Notable because it [[TropeCodifier codified]] and [[TropeNamers named]] [[ButForMeItWasTuesday an awesome trope]]. [[/labelnote]]
* [[MemeticMutation OF]] [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses COURSE!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Bison dramatically turns and delivers this line when Sagat shows surprise at the reveal that Guile faked his death. Popularized as a meme by WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic in reference to any villain whose plan is to, you guessed it, {{take over the world}}.[[/labelnote]]
* Quick! Change the channel![[labelnote:Explanation]][[DumbMuscle Zangief's dimwitted]] comment as a video broadcast displays an explosive heading directly for Bison's base.[[/labelnote]]
** You got... paid? (unfortunately, Balrog wasn't there to fully cash in on that scene) [[labelnote:Explanation]]Zangief makes a {{heel face turn}} after discovering that not only was Bison the villain, but his compatriots, most notably Dee Jay, only worked for Bison for the money. Balrog addendum is a reference to him saying "I GOT PAID!" during one of his winposes in the ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNKMillenniumFight2000 Capcom vs. SNK]]'' [[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium games]].[[/labelnote]]
* From Dee Jay: "Oh man, I should have stayed at Microsoft". [[labelnote:Explanation]]During the siege on Bison's base as Dee Jay attempts to escape.[[/labelnote]]
* GAAME OVER!! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Bison's triumphant exclamation as he destroys Guile's stealth boat and believes he's finished him off. For added hilarity, the controls for the river's automated defenses were co-opted from a ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' arcade cabinet.[[/labelnote]]
* You still refuse to accept my GODHOOD!? KEEP your own God! In fact, this might be a good time to PRAY TO HIM. For I beheld Satan as he FELL FROM HEAVEN! ''LIKE LIGHTNING!!'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Bison's excessively [[LargeHam hammy]] proclamation to Guile in their final fight moments before he's beaten.[[/labelnote]]

![[WesternAnimation/StreetFighter The Animated Series]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_osR36oxVU Sagat: "You like... some cornflakes?"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Sagat attempts to make a young boy named Kip his mascot, starting with a healthy breakfast. It doesn't make a whole lot more sense in context.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyhhRjhIKDE "Just get in the plane."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]After Cammy hits on Guile, Dee Jay and Blanka teases him about it. In the case of the latter, Blanka gives Guile a smirk. Tired of the teasing, Guile tells Blanka this.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECJND35o7RU "And you... YOU'RE A LOSER!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]SWEET COMEBACK delivered by Ken to Fei Long after Fei Long chews him out for allowing fame to go to his head.[[/labelnote]]
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TA8YYfeo6pU Oh Guile,]] [[CampGay that color is YOU]]!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ken's {{camp gay}} line to Guile after Guile is done with his scene in one of Fei Long's movies.[[/labelnote]]
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4a37ztYZgx4 No one has ever defeated Sagat, AND NO ONE EVER WILL!!!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Sagat is defeated at least twice before the episode in which he says this.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgkQWIV7F4g "This is delicious!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Bison is happy that his mutants has Guile and his friends on the ropes.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3ALwKeSEYs "YES! YES!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Bison exclaims this victoriously just after Guile gets tackled by one of the mutants. Goes hand in hand with the above quote. The [[SoundtrackDissonance sudden triumphant swell of the music]] doesn't help.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_5LnKVfS5M "NOOOOOOO!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Guile is unhappy to see Cammy kissing and allying with Bison, due to brainwashing. Any sense of drama is destroyed by Guile shaking his fists like a toddler and [[SoundtrackDissonance a rather upbeat musical cue]].[[/labelnote]]
* "Blanka, no, not the head bite!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Due to getting mutated a little more, Blanka has severe anger issues. After Vega tries to kill his {{satellite love interest}}, Blanka goes berserk. Cue Guile trying to stop Blanka and cue Blanka turning on Guile and attempts to bite his head.[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{Narm}} "Oh, man. I've been slimed by Arnold the PIG.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZeR5ycUF9I Alright, that's it. I'm out of here!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A hog covered in some slime slams into Ryu, covering him in the muck, pissing him off enough to consider giving up on his and Ken's search for treasure.[[/labelnote]]
* '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ez_QsafTLF0 "BIIIIISONNNNNN!!!!"]]''' (''[[IncendiaryExponent random fire sprouts up]]'') [[labelnote:Explanation]]Guile shouts Bison's name when he learns Blanka's been exposed to a deadly virus. When he does so, flames randomly sprout behind him for no reason.[[/labelnote]]
** Sonic Boom is this both in the games and the cartoon. In the games, it was [[{{Mondegreen}} misheard]] by Brazilians as "ALEX FULL!" In the cartoon, ''[[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer he uses it to solve everything]]''. ''Everything''.
* '''''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJQZ-5I5xX4 "YOU... HURT... MY... JESSICA!!!!"]]''''' and its {{Mondegreen}} '''''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis "YOU... HURT... MAH... TESTICALS!!!!!"]]''''' in Cody's part.
** "Take it easy, Cody!"
* '''Balrog:''' "Guess you won't be needing those tapes I made for you. Want me to get rid of 'em?"
** '''Bison:''' "Don't be hasty. Not until I see those Street Fighters pummeled to dust! Which should be any moment now."
* '''Balrog:''' Time for the tape?
** '''Bison:''' Time for the tape.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oH1rOL5hB9s Everything is lies! Everything is lies!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Cammy said this upon learning that Bison not only brainwashed her to serve him, but he also killed her parents.[[/labelnote]]
* "You're ''supposed'' to die!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In "So You Want to Be in Pictures", Ken acts in Fei Long's movie and his character was originally supposed to die. After gaining creative control of the movie, Ken kept re-writing the script so that his character wouldn't die among other things.[[/labelnote]]

* Wooga wooga wooga! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The cute sound Ken makes as he noogies Ryu.[[/labelnote]]
* "You're so sensitive!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A few seconds later quip by Ken to Ryu after the latter throws the former off of him.[[/labelnote]]
* "Japanese fighters stick together... [[LargeHam 'CAUSE WE'RE BROTHERS!! AHAHAHAHAHA!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]] E. Honda offering Ryu half the prize money he earned from beating Dhalsim in a fight, mainly because the latter sensed Ryu's presence, which allowed Honda to get the winning blow in. That and Dhalsim forfeited as well.[[/labelnote]]
* "I'm the welcome wagon!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Balrog near the end of the film, right before he faces off with Honda. Notable due to the line's delivery and Balrog's facial features being ridiculously OffModel to the point that he appears to be lacking in terms of mental capacities.[[/labelnote]]

!''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterI Street Fighter]]''
* '''"What strength! But don't forget there are many guys like you all over the world!"'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Every opponent (except for [[FinalBoss Sagat]]) says this to you after being defeated.[[/labelnote]]

* '''Guile's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPsbpZhOljk theme]] goes with everything!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Apparently you can do a BackgroundMusicOverride with Guile's theme, and it will always sound fitting.[[/labelnote]]
** A comment from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3qus-O2uGA Fresh Prince vs Guile Theme:]] ''Guile's Theme is a metaphor for the collective human consciousness, the timings for its beats and rhythm changes being perfectly or near perfectly set to allow it to fit in with any scene and genre with no need to cut it to fit in. In addition, the emotion of the song itself is of universal appeal, fitting in with any plot, be it tragic, heroic or action packed. Only an omniscient and omnipresent entity could have crafted such a perfect composition... thus Guile's Theme is proof there is a god.''
** Now an AscendedMeme! The Capcom-endorsed fangame ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXMegaMan'' has a special cheat code[[note]]Pause game, hold jump, press Up, Down, Down, Down[[/note]] that [[BackgroundMusicOverride changes all the background themes in the game into Guile's theme.]] The name of the file is actually "Goes With Everything".
*** It even ascended ''further''. During a fight that broke out in an NHL game, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKUF5btBX1I all of a sudden, Guile theme plays!]]
** "He did X... '''FOR AMERICA!'''"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Poking fun at Guile's extreme HotBlooded PatrioticFervor design.[[/labelnote]]
** '''"Go home and be a family man!"'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Guile's ''Street Fighter II'' ending. It's also one of his {{victory quote}}s (but only appears in the console ports), which got a reprise (and several derivatives) in ''IV''.[[/labelnote]]
*** '''Creator/TravisWillingham is a family man!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Willingham is Guile's voice actor in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' and he married Creator/LauraBailey (Chun-Li's voice actress), thus he's now a family man like Guile. Also goes with some of his roles like [[Manga/FullMetalAlchemist Roy Mustang]] and [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Relius Clover]][[/labelnote]]
** '''"When in doubt, I Sonic Boom!"'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]One of his winquotes in ''[[CapcomSequelStagnation HD]] [[UpdatedRerelease Remix]]''.[[/labelnote]]
** '''"OOH-AWW! OOH-AWW! OOH-AWW!"'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]His death scream in ''Super SFII''.[[/labelnote]]
** "Are you man enough to fight with me?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]His original win quote. Especially funny because he could say this one (and the "family man" quote too) to ''Chun-Li'' as well.[[/labelnote]]
* '''[[http://www.fightersgeneration.com/characters/ehonda-headsmash-alpha.gif E. Honda's flying headbutt]]'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]This doesn't need much explanation, though. For instance, it would be parodied in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' with Hinako Shijou attempting to mimic the move and falling on her face every time.[[/labelnote]]
** "Dosukoi!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]An exclamation commonly used by sumo wrestlers. Honda uses it whenever he does his aforementioned flying headbutt, as well as in one of his win poses.[[/labelnote]]
** "Can't you do better than that?"
* '''HELLOOOOOO~KEN!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Each and any of these are {{Mondegreen}}s, which by the very nature of that trope... are memetic on their own. For the sake of clarity, though, the explanations will contain the attacks referenced. For example, this one is "[[EnergyBall Hadoken]]."[[/labelnote]]
** '''HOOOOOOW-ARE-YOU-KEN?'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]"{{Shoryuken}}."[[/labelnote]]
** '''SUUUUUUURE YOU CAN!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]"{{Shoryuken}}," again.[[/labelnote]]
*** This one has become [[AscendedMeme ascended]] with Ryu's inclusion as a DLC character in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for Wii U''. One of the loading screen tips talks about using the original Shoryuken input to give it extra power and finishes with "Think you can pull it off? SURE YOU CAN!"
** [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner THE PIPES ARE BROKEN!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]"[[HurricaneKick Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku]]!"[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL_x1rRg7mM I'D LIKE SOME]] [[Creator/{{Egoraptor}} POUND CAKE!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]][[HurricaneKick Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku]], again.[[/labelnote]]
** '''TIGER ROBOCOP!!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Sagat's "[[{{Shoryuken}} Tiger Uppercut]]."[[/labelnote]]
*** '''[[MostAnnoyingSound TIGER! TIGER! TIGER!]]'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Sagat's "[[EnergyBall Tiger Shot.]]" Notable especially for [[GameBreaker Old Sagat]] in ''Super Turbo''.[[/labelnote]]
** '''ALEX FULL!!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Guile's "[[RazorWind Sonic Boom.]]"[[/labelnote]]
* "The fight is all!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ryu's motivation for WalkingTheEarth and seeking out stronger opponents than he is.[[/labelnote]]
** "You must defeat Sheng Long to stand a chance." [[labelnote:Explanation]]"Sheng Long" was a mistranslation of the "Shoryu" in {{Shoryuken}}, which left many fans scratching their heads as to what Sheng Long meant. This led to an infamous [[UrbanLegendOfZelda April Fool's joke]] by ''EGM'', which in turn is believed to have influenced the creation of Akuma in ''Super Street Fighter II Turbo''. It eventually was folded back into Gouken, the basis of the Sheng Long hoax, becoming a playable character in ''IV''.[[/labelnote]]
* "Ha ha ha ha ha! Yatta!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Chun-Li's quote during one of her winposes. It has appeared in most of her subsequent appearances.[[/labelnote]]
** "I'm the strongest woman in the world!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Chun-Li's win quote.[[/labelnote]]
* In actuality, all of the win quotes from the original version (before the CapcomSequelStagnation set in) count.

* '''[[ManlyTears OYAJI!!!]]''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of [[JokeCharacter D]][[MemeticBadass a]][[ButtMonkey n]] Hibiki's CatchPhrase, referencing his father, Go Hibiki.[[/labelnote]]
** '''[[LethalJokeCharacter Dan isn't]] [[CharacterTiers God tier.]] [[BlasphemousBoast God is Dan tier.]]''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Community's acknowledgement of Dan as the series' MemeticBadass.[[/labelnote]]
** '''Dan Hibiki: [[Creator/StephenColbert Street Fighter or Streetest Fighter?]]''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]This comes from the [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/495979 Street Fighter Collab]] from Website/{{Newgrounds}}, a variation of the "[[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush George Bush]]: Great president or greatest president?" [[RunningGag bit]] from ''Series/TheColbertReport'' used to reference Dan's SmallNameBigEgo.[[/labelnote]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4z_UT_WeEU Dan's]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4z_UT_WeEU taunting]] is a meme in and of itself. Not only was he the only character able to infinitely taunt in the ''Alpha'' games as a TakeThat to ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'' (of which Dan is one great big parody), he has two entire Super Combos, the Legendary Taunt and the ''Alpha 3''-only Mythical Taunt, consisting of ''[[MundaneMadeAwesome nothing but]]'' taunting. (Which makes for some hilariously epic mindgames in titles like ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2 MvC2]]'' and ''SFIV'', wherein Dan [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBATACQC1BE#t=3m12s can cancel]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIpdgmN9WV8#t=6m39s the Legendary Taunt]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLR8hORvUB0 into Ultra/Hyper Combos.]])
*** "Doshita! Doshita!" ("What's wrong?"/"What are you waiting for?") [[labelnote:Explanation]]Dan's standing taunt.[[/labelnote]]
*** "Namen ja ne zo!" ("Don't mess with me!"/"Don't underestimate me!") [[labelnote:Explanation]]Dan's crouching taunt.[[/labelnote]]
*** "Yoyusu!" ("Piece of cake!") [[labelnote:Explanation]]Dan's thumbs up pose he makes at the end of the Legendary Taunt, a knock on [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Yuri Sakazaki]]'s "Yoyuchi!" ("Piece of cake!") win pose. [[/labelnote]]
*** "Rakushou!" ("An easy win!") [[labelnote:Explanation]]Dan's rolling taunt.[[/labelnote]]
*** "Yahoo!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Dan's jumping taunt[[/labelnote]]
** "I hate the VideoGame/{{art of fighting}}, but I want to be VideoGame/{{the king of fighters}}!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Dan's winquotes in ''Alpha 3'', which is yet another rib on SNK and its ''SFII''-[[FollowTheLeader derivative]] fighters.[[/labelnote]]
* '''[[HulkSpeak I AM]] [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname RED CYCLONE!!!]]''' [[labelnote:Explanation]][[MotherRussiaMakesYouStrong Zangief]]'s CatchPhrase.[[/labelnote]]
* '''Everything the [[LargeHam announcer]] from ''Alpha 3'' [[AnnouncerChatter says]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhBGrNpHxD8 EVERYTHING.]]'''
* 天 ("Ten") [[labelnote:Explanation]]The kanji character on Akuma's back which is prominent in both his official artwork, and one of his winposes.[[/labelnote]]
** Shoushi! ("Worthless!") [[labelnote:Explanation]]What Akuma says during one of said winposes.[[/labelnote]]
** "I am power made flesh! [[RougeAnglesOfSatin Fell]] how weak you truly are!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]What [[NintendoHard Shin Akuma]] says to you just before you fight him. In ''Alpha'' and ''Alpha 2'', "Feel" was misspelled as "Fell".[[/labelnote]]

* Dudley is [[FountainOfMemes an endless spring of 'em]], thanks in part to the vocal stylings of Francis Diakowsky (his ''3rd Strike'' voice actor, [[MyRealDaddy the one most commonly associated with him]]):
** LetsFightLikeGentlemen.
** You have no dignity...
** Gutter trash. (''[[SomethingAboutARose throws rose]]'')
** Down... for the count.
** [[CrossCounter CROSS COUNTER!!!]]
** Don't cross Dudley or you'll get [[ShoutOut DEMPSEY ROLL'D!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Dempsey Roll from ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'' is the inspiration behind Dudley's Rolling Thunder Super Art.[[/labelnote]]
** Not even his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOB3j9lmBZI theme]] from ''3rd Strike'' is safe. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16fNHQ4g1yA THIS IS A STUPID DOPE MIX,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_Ox7ifjz70 NOW GET ON THE DANCE FLOOR!]] [[note]]His ''Super Street Fighter IV'' version of "You Blow My Mind" has also led to "Let's fight like gentlemen... ON THE DANCE FLOOR!" and "Let's dance... like gentlemen."[[/note]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSzPbO9DFcg "Jazzy NYC,"]] the theme of Alex from ''III'', has started a movement [[FanNickname for slapping the name]] "Jazzy" on anything with even the slightest hint of jazz in it. As of ''Super Street Fighter IV'', we now have "Jazzy [[GloriousMotherRussia Russia]]" ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvwwfX_mKnU Zangief]]), "Jazzy [[VideoGame/FinalFight Metro]]" ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dE4B6RfA5oU Guy]]), and "Jazzy [[UsefulNotes/{{Japan}} Kyoto]]" ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzOckSK5f8U Ibuki]]).
* '''N-N-N-N-NOW! FIGHT A NEW RIVAL!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]''III''[='=]s version of "HERE COMES A NEW CHALLENGER!"[[/labelnote]]

Most of these are related to the characters' {{catch phrase}}s.

* [[http://thisistheblogthatjerkswrote.blogspot.com/2009/02/ken-and-zangief-strategies-for-sf-iv.html Jumping HK! > Did I hit him? > Yes > SHORYUKEN!!1 - The flowchart is civilization.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A flowchart from the ''SF'' competitive community. It would be later [[FandomNod referenced]] by Ken's winquote in ''Super Street Fighter IV'': "See? The best fighter always wins. As easy to understand as a flowchart."[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik1tK-GaoYk Turn The]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FB1VDHY6PIo Beat Back!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Cody's theme, which repeats this line.[[/labelnote]]
* Thanks to several of his epic and hilarious win quotes, Balrog (Boxer) has achieved this status.
** '''"MAH FIGHT MONEYYYYY!!!"''' when he loses in ''IV''. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Most of these don't need any explanation, but for the sake of formatting, we're going to name when this happens.[[/labelnote]]
** "Time to get paid!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Victory in the first round.[[/labelnote]]
** As of his long-awaited match [[TheRival with Dudley]] in ''Super Street Fighter IV'', the words "FUCK YO DIGNITY!" are used not only as a FanNickname for his Music/DaftPunk-sounding [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9MlKtr4dpY theme,]] but as a TakeThat to Dudley's [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen honorable ways]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Already explained.[[/labelnote]]
* Dudley's "Keep it classy!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Dudley during his EX Machine Gun Blow. This one actually comes from Stuart [=McLean=], Dudley's voice actor in ''Super Street Fighter IV''. [[MemeAcknowledgement Acknowledged]] and {{ascended|Meme}} by Capcom in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'', where Dudley once again says the line during the move despite all of the game's audio being newly-recorded and not 100% to ''SFIV'' for the ''Street Fighter'' side.[[/labelnote]]
* "The answer lies... in the heart of battle." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ryu's intro.[[/labelnote]]
** Lampshaded by Evil Ryu's winquote against Sagat:
-->''There is no answer in the heart of battle!''
* '''PROFOUND SADNESS!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Guy, when defeated.[[/labelnote]]
** '''MUNEN!''' ([[{{Mondegreen}} or as the fans hear it]], '''MUNANG!''') [[labelnote:Explanation]]Japanese equivalent of the above.[[/labelnote]]
** ''Real'' ninjas wear nikes.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Guy wears [[LawyerFriendlyCameo Nikes]] as part of his combat attire. This is a TakeThat to ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', which is made even funnier by the fact that Guy's alternate outfit in ''SSFIV'' [[HighlyVisibleNinja is almost as implausible for a ninja as Naruto's getup]].
*** It's also a crossover meme with ''Franchise/MortalKombat'', more specifically Reptile in [[Film/MortalKombat the movie]]: [[FreezeFrameBonus if you slow down the footage]] of the Liu Kang vs. Reptile fight, you can see the Nike swoosh in the soles of his shoes.
** Aside from the nikes things, there has been a surge of Website/YouTube comments turning Guy and the story of ''Final Fight'' into a parody of {{Blaxploitation}} films due to the funky style of his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dE4B6RfA5oU theme]] in ''IV''. Its name? ''Bushinryu Jones''.
* "[[PreAssKickingOneLiner Looks like it's]] [[VictoryQuote time to oil up!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Hakan's CatchPhrase.[[/labelnote]]
** Usually paired with with TV chef Ainsley Harriot's rape face.
* As of ''Super Street Fighter IV'': Flash Kick, Focus Attack Dash Cancel into Shades! [[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''SSFIV'', one of Guile's additions to his moveset is a special whereupn [[MundaneMadeAwesome he simply dons his]] CoolShades. Certain fans ran wild with finding various ways to "utilize" it in matches.[[/labelnote]]
* Dee Jay's ''SSFIV'' valentine's card message: ''[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Let's get horizontal!]]''
* There was a short-lived trend on Website/YouTube videos with each character's (''Super'') ''Street Fighter IV'' theme to declare "X FOR PRESIDENT!"
* Due to the [[InternetBackdraft bemused and downright irked]] reactions to Akuma's Demon Armageddon [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKxcHrEk7IQ#t=0m28s Ultra,]] there have been comparisons to ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpHGBKi9lw4 here,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeIvWO830_o here,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmTz9_J8B00 here,]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBXNYUGgYjc here]]), which have led to the ''other'' {{fan nickname}}s of Shin Goku Beyblade and the Akumanian Devil.
* From Balrog:
** "I am the champ!"
** "C'mon, punching bag!"
** "[[OnlyInItForTheMoney I'm getting paid for this right? I don't do nothing for free.]]"
* "Fei Long needs/wants WATEEEEEEEEEEERRRR!" or "What does Fei Long love to drink? 'WA-TAAA!!'" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Yet another {{Mondegreen}}, now of Fei Long's {{Kiai}} screams.[[/labelnote]]
* Oni is banned. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Oni isn't really banned, but people love to joke about it because he's a rare character and his overall design just screams "broken." Amusingly, in the past, Oni was considered a poor character, and characters in other games that were low tier were "banned" as well.[[/labelnote]]
* '''[[PatrioticFervor "FOR MOTHER RUSSIA!"]]''' [[note]]Zangief's quote upon activating his Ultimate Atomic Buster Ultra. Also doubles as a FanNickname for the Ultra itself.[[/note]]
** '''"I AM THE PROTECTOR OF RUSSIA'S SKIES!"''' [[note]]Same as above, but with Gief's Siberian Blizzard Ultra instead. Cue jokes pertaining to the Red Cyclone being the last line in Russia's missile defense system.[[/note]]
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpKwB0ikNkI "SKY PROTECTED!"]] [[note]]Commentary from Chris Hu during a match between Dragon God (Akuma) and Aquasilk (Zangief), where Zangief catches Akuma with his Siberian Blizzard. Branches off of the above "I am the protector of Russia's skies!" quote. Since Aquasilk primarily uses this Ultra, this meme is also heavily associated with him, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8YYt6lH0yY which can lead to even funnier moments of role reversal.]][[/note]]
*** "[[PrecisionFStrike FUCK]] OUTTA [[AsianSpeekeeEngrish HEA]] STANDING STRONG!" [[note]]Again, Chris Hu. Done in response to Aquasilk's Zangief using his standing MP to stuff Dragon God's advance with his Akuma twice. Let's just say Chris Hu is a [[FountainOfMemes growing mini-factory of memes]] himself and call it a day.[[/note]]
* The day after ''Ultra Street Fighter IV'' was released onto Xbox Live and the [=PlayStation=] Network, we get [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XqJtYc5ZS4&list=PLCMtkS5im7SJDOH4WeDE7zu0Ug21XuNxc Maximilian Dood having the misfortune of an AI Hugo powering through a Metsu Hadoken with an EX Monster Lariat and winning.]] Max's scream of shock and disbelief certainly helps.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL_x1rRg7mM Would anybody like some poundcake?]] '''I'D LIKE SOME POUNDCAKE!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Again, another {{Mondegreen}} for the above. Comes from one of [[AwesomeSeries Egoraptor's]] sketches from the [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/495979 Street Fighter Collab.]]][[/labelnote]]
** And going off of this we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClJEnLPdag8 SURE YOU CAN!]]
* The memes [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gokomxkRsIY Pastor Ryu]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeP6l3JDBrw Pastor Pilão]] (Piledriver Pastor) are memes that became famous in Brazil, as remixes of footage of Pentecostal preachers and ''Street Fighter'' music.

!Tournament scene
* [[FanNickname The Beast]]... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KS7hkwbKmBM is UNLEASHED!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]"Evo 2004 Moment #37", a climactic, showstopping finish to the EVO 2004 match in ''Street Fighter III 3rd Strike'' between Daigo "The Beast" Umehara and Justin Wong. In the final round, Umehara's Ken is whittled down to his last tick of health: [[CherryTapping any damage, even chip damage, would have ended the match in Wong's favor]]. When Wong activates Chun-Li's Hoyoku Sen Super Art, Umehara proceeds to ''parry every single hit of the super'' and counters with his own combo, turning the tables against Wong and winning the match. More background detail on the tournament match, and what was involved in anticipating and executing the parry, can be found in articles from [[http://penny-arcade.com/report/article/the-beast-is-unleashed-capcoms-seth-killian-explains-the-most-famous-minute Penny Arcade]] and [[http://www.edge-online.com/features/time-extend-street-fighter-iii-third-strike/ Edge]].[[/labelnote]]
** [[TemptingFate Let's go]], [[HopeSpot Justin!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]From the memorable EVO 2004 Umehara vs. Wong match, as noted above. Any match with an American player in Nico Video is bound to have this line in the scrolling comments.
