[[caption-width-right:340: [[SignatureMove Falcon]] [[MegatonPunch Punch]]: It Solves Everything. [[note]]Unless you're Luigi, apparently[[/note]] ]]

''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' has a tendency to create [[MemeticMutation memes]].
----
* [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Captain Falcon]], the series' resident FountainOfMemes Hell, some consider his memetic status on par with that of real life memetic badass People/ChuckNorris:
** [[CallingYourAttacks "FALCON PUUUUUUNCH!!!"]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Captain Falcon's neutral special move in all four games so far. Arguably the most famous meme in the game.[[/labelnote]]
*** So famous the ''F-Zero'' anime [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wa5OkdP3-r8 included it]] in a [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome spectacular]] HeroicSacrifice.]]
*** Also popular are vids showing what happens when two of [[DivideByZero them]] [[EarthShatteringKaboom collide]]
*** '''[[Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily FALCON]] [[http://www.brawlinthefamily.com/comic096.html BLUFF!!]]'''
*** So famous, even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkbA8KGRoNw the game itself]] [[AscendedMeme references it]].
** "YES!!!!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]What Captain Falcon says after successfully performing his up-B attack, Falcon Dive.[[/labelnote]]
** Show me ya moves![[labelnote:Explanation]]Captain Falcon's (badass) taunt.[[/labelnote]]
** [[{{Mondegreen}} SHOW ME YOUR BOOBS!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Captain Falcon's taunts has him saying, "Show me your moves!", but either because he couldn't be heard clearly because of the accent, or because players really were [[FreudWasRight that immature]]... yeah, it was kind of inevitable. It is probably the series' best-known taunt.[[/labelnote]]
*** Show me a MOOSE!
** Captain Falcon punched Chrom so hard he fell out of the roster.[[labelnote:Explanation]]In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diS8AnL3xqs Lucina's reveal trailer]], Chrom is knocked out behind her, and Captain Falcon easily has Lucina herself on the ropes before Robin steps in.[[/labelnote]]
* Other popular {{Mondegreen}}s include "Hands off my bread!", "Too easy, pizza-cake!", "Falcon Thrust!", "Rape the targets!", and "Landbastard!"
** '''Falco:''' PERSONALLY, I PREFER [[strike:THE AIR]] [[YourMom YOUR MOM]]!
* "[[ComplacentGamingSyndrome No items]], [[VideoGame/StarFox Fox only]], [[AbridgedArenaArray Final Destination]]."[[labelnote:Explanation]]A jab at tournament-level ''Super Smash Bros.'' (''Melee'') players, who generally turn off items to avoid random elements, keep up on character tiers ([[VideoGame/StarFox Fox and Falco]] typically being top-tier in ''Melee''), and play only a subset of available stages to avoid unfair advantages or more random elements--Final Destination is often a favorite due to being a featureless flat plane. These efforts at making the ''Super Smash Bros.'' series more [[CompetitiveBalance balanced]] for TournamentPlay are dismissed by some players as taking the fun away from the game. Note: The phrase is a snowclone of the unrelated horror movie's tagline.[[/labelnote]]
** "Final items, no only, Fox Destination!"
** As of the 3DS and WiiU ''Smash'' games, No Items and Final Destination have achieved AscendedMeme status, in the online multiplayer mode For Glory. In contrast, For Fun mode enables most features, but explicitly bans Final Destination.
*** For Glory Mode, Fox only! [[labelnote:Explanation]]This varation has started to pop up as well.[[/labelnote]]
**** '''BOWSER''' of all characters has been subject to the long running meme as of the SDCC 3DS tournament where, you guessed it, quite a few competitors used the King of the Koopas due to how much more agile he is in the fourth game.
** [[http://i.imgur.com/Ve5cntc.jpg Ike fights for his friends.]]
** [[http://31.media.tumblr.com/50a74ec1b26d746d33ca269790b245c7/tumblr_n8i2vjH2gi1qeosmfo1_1280.png For Freedom.]]
* JAPAN TIEM[[labelnote:Explanation]]Referred to Sakurai's daily blog at the Smash Bros. Dojo, leading up to the release of Brawl, in which he'd detail new features of the game. Since it updated Japanese mornings, this meant checking at unusual hours for it in more Western countries.[[/labelnote]]
** [[SkywardScream SAKURAAAAAAAAAAAIIIII!!!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The reaction to the above when fans were outraged over absent characters and other frustrating features.[[/labelnote]]
** '''Sakurai:''' [[{{Troll}} -laughs-]][[labelnote:Explanation]]And the counter-reaction. Comes from many interviews with Satoru Iwata in his "Iwata Asks" column, wherein every chuckle from anyone present is meticulously recorded as shown ad nauseum. One of these columns happened to involve an interview with Sakurai, popularizing the oddity.[[/labelnote]]
*** '''[[CreatorCameo Dedede]]''': *laughs*
** "Have you ever made a game?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]At E3, an arrogant competitive fan confronts Sakurai about balancing the game. Sakurai shut him down with this response. Fans now use this as a joke response to criticism.[[/labelnote]]
** You know why he's laughing? Because '''REAL MANS USE ITEMS!!!1!1'''
** Also, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiCcOJ7gfyo HE IS ENTERTAINER!]]
* No Johns[[labelnote:Explanation]]Johns=Excuse. People take this and run away with it.[[/labelnote]]
** This one got a small revival in 2014 after Reggie included it in a speech he made for EVO, though it apparently fell into disuse in the meantime as there were some half-joking comments asking why Reggie didn't like people named John.
* Ike's "I FIGHT FOR MY FRIENDS"[[labelnote:Explanation]]What he he says during his victory pose.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlHLzdAkeGU I ALSO DO CRACK AND HEROIN.]] *[[Website/SomethingAwful awesome]]*
** As well as "RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANDOMASTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!"
** GREAT! AETHERRRR!!! (or as they say in Japan, '''[[{{Mondegreen}} I! HATE! YOU!]]''')
** [[https://38.media.tumblr.com/d51eb46c997dfc87dfe2e509394bebbc/tumblr_n8tnxerLVo1s8chaxo1_500.png I Fight For My]] Series/{{Friends}}.
* '''TVTROPES CONFIRMED FOR BRAWL''' or '''TVTROPES joins the Brawl!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Based on character introduction trailers for ''Brawl'' and the 3DS / Wii U games, particularly the latter where the character's portrait is shown along with their name and a quip about them entering battle, such as "Videogame/{{Mega Man|Classic}} Joins the Battle!" or "[[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Rosalina & Luma]] Launch into Battle!" Used as both wishing for a certain character to be included as well as a joke about the massive number of available characters.[[/labelnote]]
** Naturally, the newcomer intros are also done with various other characters. [[http://imgur.com/a/9G906 As seen here.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8hvqTSCg-g YOU CAN HAVE...]]
* ''SonicTheHedgehog'': "YOU'RE TOO SLOW! [[TooSlow YOU'RE TOO SLOW!]] [[MostAnnoyingSound YOU'RE TOO SLOW! YOU'RE TOO SLOW!...]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Sonic's side-taunt in ''Brawl''. Spammed endlessly by players that [[FragileSpeedster dash across the stage and can't be hit]].[[/labelnote]]
** "'''[[SuperMode NOW I'LL SHOW YOU!!!]]''' '''''[[{{Kiai}} HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!]]'''''"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Sonic shouts the first phrase upon activating his [[LimitBreak Final Smash]], Super Sonic. He then continuously yells the second phrase during the Final Smash.[[/labelnote]]
*** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rxAXiRcI4w#t=5m38s NO, YOU WILL NOT!]]"
*** "NOW I'LL SHOW YOU-'''''DAMN IT!!!!"'''''
** The other taunt, "COME ON! STEP IT UP!" gets this a lot too.
** Within the Sonic boards, Winning Steak (based on a misspelling of "owning streak").
** Also, Sonic was once considered the fifth-worst character in the game. Now a handful of players are calling for a move to high tier. And ''justifiably so'' (YMMV).
*** Related: the "miracle at MLG", in which two of Sonic's best players got fifth and sixth at a major ''Smash'' tournament.
** ''Almost the entirety of Sonic being in Brawl'' is a meme in and of itself. Certain parts of the Smash {{Fandumb}} and the Sonic {{Hatedumb}} are at arms with this, and pretend to be in disbelief to Sonic's inclusion in the game, combined with the unexpected success Sonic players have achieved in certain tournaments, as well as the rising of his [[CharacterTiers tier]]. All layered with the above memes as reasoning.
* ''FireEmblem'': Marth[[DudeLooksLikeALady (a)]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Many people noticed Marth's flamboyant appearance and the fact that he wears a tiara.[[/labelnote]]
** His white costume looking like a wedding dress.
** All HilariousInHindsight now that he has a DistaffCounterpart in Lucina.
* Pikachu + Ganondorf's moves = [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgzDPDxrtto Pikaman!]] (AKA Longchu and Ganonchu)[[labelnote:Explanation]]Based on a famous moveset-swapping hack for ''Brawl''. A video featuring the moveswap was featured shortly after the game came out.[[/labelnote]]
* '''"SUPAR! SMAAAAAAAAAAAASH BROTHERS![[labelnote:Explanation]]What the LargeHam announcer says after the game's opening cinematic.''[[/labelnote]]
** ''''"MAYYYYYYYLAYYYYYYYYYY!"'''
* '''Warning! Challenger Approaching!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]This screen appears when the player faces an unlockable character. People tend to Photoshop characters they would like to see in Smash Bros. and put them in these screens with the words and their silhouette shown.[[/labelnote]]
* '''[[CharacterTiers TIRES DON EXITS!!]]'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]One fan's (poorly spelled) objection to the insistence that each character can be put into a specific tier.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qR6sxFBm1P8 TIERS ARE 4 QUEERS!]]
* ROY'S OUR BOY! ROY'S OUR BOY!
** [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute WE LIKE IKE! WE LIKE IKE!]]
** Well, at least '''[=ROY HAS T3H PH1R3!=]'''
** [[TheSimpsons We like Roy! We like Roy!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7C85UPINBbM Snake, do you know who that is?]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KOlVl77SkQ Mario! Wario! Lucario!]]
* Anything from the three Brawl Taunts videos from Newgrounds... (but most people saw them on Website/YouTube.)
* At one point, there was always a new meme every day (mostly started by mentioning Wario and Dedede, or by misspelling a character's name, eg. [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} Chairzard]] and [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Snoic]]) on the GameFAQs board for Brawl.
* [[ScrappyMechanic *trips*]] '''[[SkywardScream SAKURAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!]]'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]''Brawl'' introduced a mechanic in which characters would randomly trip while running. This was the reaction.[[/labelnote]]
* You ''must'' recover![[labelnote:Explanation]]From the official website, a caption from a lesson explaining the tricks of getting back to the stage when knocked off. Many people were frustrated about the update because it didn't give any new information about the game.[[/labelnote]]
** You have no time to ponder such questions, as this troper has just grabbed a Meme Ball.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Oddly phrased caption while explaining Smash Balls. The original grabber is Link.[[/labelnote]]
* "2:04, Ganon. No strategies, just fighting as hard as I could."[[labelnote:Explanation]]After one poster asked how quickly everyone had beaten the 100 Man Brawl, one poster responded with this.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/TheLegendaryStarfy Stafy]], why did you even come here?[[labelnote:Explanation]]Possible shoot comment from the official website when introducing Stafy/Starfy as an assist trophy.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pD_imYhNoQ4 WOMBO COMBO!!!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]during a 2v2 match, SS (Fox) and Tang (Falcon) took out Lucky (Fox), and got Zhu (Fox) to his last stock. The two defeated Zhu by performing an extremely difficult and fast combo from zero percent to death in ''FIVE SECONDS''. This managed to impress the commentator HomemadeWaffles, and the combo is considered one of the best in all of pro Smash.[[/labelnote]]
** That ain't Falco!
** GET YO' ASS WHOOPED!
** MY DICK HURTS!
** Look at that Up Smash! And now Up - Uh-oh, poor Zhu!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8D2kfHzW8M Even in death. Snake can kill you.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBWiDSgvqug ENTER THE REALM OF THE FALCON.]]
* Ridley is too big[[labelnote:Explanation]]Ridley is a character who gets requested often from the ''Metroid'' fanbase, but his gargantuan size many consider to be an obstacle to his inclusion.[[/labelnote]]
** "X for Brawl!" "He's too big."[[labelnote:Explanation]]After the "Ridley's too big" meme took root, it started being used on any suggested character. Mostly on GameFAQs.[[/labelnote]]
** Bigley. [[labelnote:Explanation]]One user jokingly made a stick figure Ridley reading 'Bigley', and now around half the posts you see on the Super Smash Bros. Miiverse community are just Bigley pictures.[[/labelnote]]
** Related: [[VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG Geno]]. Likely won't ever get in because of copyright issues with Square, but still a very common request.
* X da bess[[labelnote:Explanation]]Originally used with Meta Knight, in a video about him being [[GameBreaker overpowered.]][[/labelnote]]
* "Heroes always arrive late."[[labelnote:Explanation]]This cryptic sentence ended the music update post for "Go K.K. Rider!" To this day, nobody is sure what it means.[[/labelnote]]
* "Big Gay Thunder!" "Big Gay Fire!" "Peanut Butter!" "Big Gay Dance!" "PK Tenor!" "PK Flush!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Mondegreens of both Lucas's and Ness's names for their attacks. This, naturally, has led the fandom to give Dedede's final smash move a similar name to go with the gag.[[/labelnote]]
* "Why is Misty?" "She's a trophy"[[labelnote:Explanation]]The first quote was the title of a GameFAQs message board topic asking why there was a picture of Misty from ''Pokemon'' in the manual for ''Super Smash Bros. Melee''. The topic quickly reached the limit of 500 posts thanks to a multitude of replies similar to the second quote.[[/labelnote]]
* "Kirby Cheat?" "Furby Meat?" (etc.)[[labelnote:Explanation]]Another ''Melee''-related GameFAQs topic where someone asked for information on a "Kirby cheat", possibly referring to spamming Kirby's standard A attack to rack up a high combo in Training mode. After a number of replies like "Kirby cheat?" it mutated into other phrases that rhymed with it.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMw8B6VIaKM&feature=related Mr.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CHMuXNtOSE&feature=relmfu Game]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YR8N504iYAE&playnext=1&list=PL69949F73FD8B1152&feature=results_video &]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htvN_0vsXH0&feature=related Watch]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVHl4y28ouE&feature=related CLEARLY]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5d9GBQ5xU48&feature=related Cheats]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBFC2qO3Jac&feature=related At]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41Jb9_sO9C4 Brawl]].
* "Mei Ling, Samus took her clothes off!"
** "That's Wario, Snake." This conversation was popular around the time a few of Snake's codec conversations were revealed.
** "Are you kidding me?!" Snake's reaction to learning that Wario can fly by farting.
* [[{{Mondegreen}} I'll be the Marth]], [[GagSub e.g. noob]]... [[note]]Misheard lyrics of Brawl's main theme as featured in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFjaoYZ7jlA a comedic combo video]].[[/note]]
* There was going to be another meme here, but we cut it in favor of Environmental Noises.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Environmental Noises is a "music" track that is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Some people see it as a completely useless music track and complain about other cool songs that could have been in the game instead.[[/labelnote]]
* TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT![[labelnote:Explanation]]Fans eagerly awaited Captain Falcon's ''Brawl'' reveal. The hype for Captain Falcon on [=GameFAQs=] helped bring rise to the "Falcon Punch!" meme.[[/labelnote]]
* LANDMASTER![[labelnote:Explanation]]This meme originated shortly after ''Brawl'' came out in Japan; it was revealed that three characters (the ''Star Fox'' representatives) used the Landmaster as a Final Smash; more than any other Final Smash in the game. Fans now joke that any unknown Final Smash is going to be the Landmaster.[[/labelnote]]
* The Mario is better than Mario[[labelnote:Explanation]]This originated in a [=GameFAQs=] thread where a user was discussing who he thought were the most important characters to the franchise. However, he accidentally put a line break before and after "The Mario," which made the phrase stand out on its own. Users then talked about "The Mario" being superior to regular Mario, even being worshipped like a god.[[/labelnote]].
** Mario will never get in![[labelnote:Explanation]]Many users like to joke that Mario has next to no chance of appearing in the Super Smash Bros. games, even though as Nintendo's mascot, he is all but guaranteed to appear in every game in the series.[[/labelnote]]
* Gordondarf.[[labelnote:Explanation]]One user made a topic discussing which version of Ganondorf should be in Brawl, but accidentally wrote his name as "Gordondarf." This meme became so big it had its own day dedicated to it. Jokes about Gordon Freeman from VideoGame/HalfLife have been constantly made.[[/labelnote]]
* Who would you is the original Smash Bros.?[[labelnote:Explanation]]The nonsensical title of a [=GameFAQs=] thread due to the lack of the word "think" between "you" and "is", and the inability to attribute "the original Smash Bros." to a character.[[/labelnote]]
* "shoots [=SA2=] in the foot."[[labelnote:Explanation]]A [=GameFAQs=] user named [=SA2=] became annoyed with the overabundance of character lists on the board, so he threatened to shoot himself in the foot every time a character list was made. Eventually, people started "shooting him in the foot" themselves.[[/labelnote]]
* TOURNAMENTS![[labelnote:Explanation]]Meta Knight's broken-ness has become a meme among the Smash community, prompting people to make numerous memes about him and his unbalanced-ness, since the only characters able to beat professional Meta-Knight players are: [[CaptainObvious Meta Knight]] and ''possibly'' characters from the tier below Meta Knight, and he's also one of the very few characters in Smash history to have a tier level to himself.[[/labelnote]]
* The [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Villager]]'s constant smile and soulless eyes have made the fandom deem him CuteAndPsycho. It doesn't help that even his reveal trailer seems to hint that there's a mean streak behind the carefree face. His [[DissonantSerenity unsettlingly happy smile]] and gleam in his eye has been interpreted in [[MemeticMolester many]] [[AxCrazy horri]][[MemeticBadass fying]] [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/creepy-animal-crossing-villager ways]].
* TALK SHIT GET FIT[[labelnote:Explanation]]The WiiFit Trainer was... not exactly everyone's first choice for Smash newcomers. With the help of her introductory trailer, though, she's becoming a bit of a MemeticBadass (with a side of {{Memetic Sex God}}/{{Rule Thirty Four}}), almost to Falcon levels. [[http://imgur.com/gallery/tHBX2 Macros]] started appearing not six hours after her reveal.[[/labelnote]]
** I'm going to make you fit... INTO A COFFIN.
** Visualise your ideal body... BAG.
** Your ideal heart rate... IS ZERO.
** Some women just want to watch the world burn... [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking calories.]]
* [[http://www.smashbros.com/images/character/donkey_kong/screen-7.jpg This]] DrosteImage of DK seems to be making it around.
* Bowser's increased speed & slimmer appearance in the 4th game has fans believe that he tried out ''VideoGame/WiiFit'' to lose some weight, especially with the Wii Fit Trainer being around.
** The same joke is then applied to Yoshi, whose posture also is changed in the fourth Smash game.
* [[http://i.imgur.com/362wAK8.png ZELDA'S BIZARRE LEGEND]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Zelda's reveal for the fourth game had a picture of Zelda striking a pose that reminded a lot of people of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. The Internet had a field day with altering that picture.[[/labelnote]]
** And before then, Rosalina is touted as a "Stand user" because of how she utilizes Luma.
** Phantom Zelda was also revealed with regular Zelda nearby, leading to it being referred to as Zelda's Stand. Becomes HilariousInHindsight because that Phantom is actually Zelda's new Down B, and it's summoned as if it was a Stand.
** And now even Little Mac has been connected to [=JoJo=], due to this [[http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/19fo91z1qdxz2jpg/ku-xlarge.jpg screenshot]] where Mac's face bears a surprising resemblance to Joeseph Joestar, the internet ran with it, and we ended up with [[http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/19fo922zxd33tpng/ku-xlarge.png this]].
** Diddy's reveal came with an image of his stretching his arms out, leading to a war of whether characters should be '[=JoJofied=]' or [[OnePiece 'One Pieced']]
** Wii Fit Trainer is a [=JoJo=] character too, apparently. S/he breathes in air to power up and uses the energy of the sun as one of the attacks. Definitely a Ripple user.
** Ike's reappearance comes with a huge muscle upgrade, putting him more in line with the exaggerated characters in Jojo.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgkZ91DwwK8 This speaks for itself.]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8hqmIwSwcQ and THIS speaks in another level for itself.]]
** [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/778999-super-smash-brothers DK's newly revealed Storm Punch has drawn connections with Wham]].
** [[https://38.media.tumblr.com/22912d78f71522c3d83967988379a8fc/tumblr_n8socwNyVL1sntotwo1_500.png Robin has some fun with his/her spellcasting.]]
* When TV Tropes joins the battle, Alfonzo is in charge of the tropes. Alfonzo: "Leave it to me!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]One pic of the day revealed that in the 3DS version of the game, [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks Alfonzo drives the Spirit Train]] instead of Toon Link when the the latter is being controlled. It got started as a meme the next week, when a pic of the day featured a Palutena statue and someone [[http://i2.minus.com/jMVj9GF9TM3Gv.png photoshopped Alfonzo in]] as a reference to a (later-proven-accurate) rumor making the rounds that Palutena was playable. Before long, Alfonzo was being [[https://31.media.tumblr.com/3fa87d6ed5416f0b875a094cc0d594d9/tumblr_n067ejyPf51toqguko2_500.png edited]] [[https://31.media.tumblr.com/013a6884ebb863c0272ccc3b59b1c29d/tumblr_n067ejyPf51toqguko3_500.jpg into]] pictures to replace [[http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/733/532/cd9.jpg other characters]], and it [[https://24.media.tumblr.com/830caaa2252b7fe6a9cd810283fcc890/tumblr_n067ejyPf51toqguko4_500.jpg eventually]] [[http://i.imgur.com/qvlnQSt.png mutated]] further.[[/labelnote]]
* Luigi's Nose confirmed [[labelnote:Explanation]]The infamous 100th pic of the day has led to Luigi's nose becoming practically synonymous with disappointing {{filler}} updates, although characters lying down is rapidly catching up.[[/labelnote]]
* Numerous pics have been made joking about how Lucario and [[http://38.media.tumblr.com/a82b9b6a54fa3736877b4c6f38475d0d/tumblr_n3qjvusIQX1r90e4wo1_500.jpg Greninja were chosen over Mewtwo]] for Smash Bros. 4.
** Greninja fights with Mewtwo fans' tears.
* SALUTE THE SUN! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Wii Fit Trainer's neutral Special move is Sun Salutation, a yoga pose that summons a small sun in front of her that grows. The pose and the similarity of the name sure made certain DarkSouls fans noted.[[/labelnote]]
* Sakurai's hand movements in the Smash Direct attracted much attention, leading to videos like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&persist_app=1&v=6rxg4zWutWU this.]]
* ''[[Music/BackstreetBoys BACKSTREET'S BACK]], '''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNx1HiFIoRk ALRIGHT]]!'''''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Mega Man's Final Smash has a TeamShot remarkably similar to a ''Backstreet Boys'' cover.[[/labelnote]]
** Now with an updated [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygzpiekIzAo version]] courtesy of the Smash Bros. Invitational.
* ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vz96eSYdFvc BANNED!]]''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Smash Bros. commentator D1 reacted to the sizzle reel of stages in the Smash Direct by proclaiming that most of the stages would get banned. And that Jungle Japes is banned already.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/f2/87/b5/f287b5c92b50ba9e4948cbfa59384cf7.jpg Photorealistic Substitute Doll]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} Substitue]] doll for Greninja is ''incredibly detailed'', despite only being seen for a few seconds at a time.[[/labelnote]]
* ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghEhI4CJjAM Reggie Fils A Mech]]''[[labelnote:Explanation]]A {{Mega64}} video announcing the game appearing at Best Buy over the summer is done by having the Mega64 guys infiltrate Nintendo's headquarters using a Reggie Android. ''With laser eyes.'' Yeah... [[/labelnote]]
* After Ike's new, ''Radiant Dawn''-based appearance in the fourth game, plenty of jokes have been made about how he has bulked up since Brawl.
** He is usally grouped up with Mega Swampert from [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]] and Knuckles from [[WesternAnimation/SonicBoom Sonic Boom]] due to the similar buffed up appearances.
** Wii Fit Trainer has taught Bowser and Yoshi how to stand upright and made Ike, Knuckles and Swampert buffed up.
** [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants I WAS A WIMP BEFORE ANCHOR ARMS! NOW I'M A JERK AND EVERYBODY LOVES ME!]]
** Only exemplified by Ike's already memetic status in Brawl. [[http://i.imgur.com/b2s9Kbs.png?1 Case in point.]]
** Some time during E3, people have encountered a bug on the smash bros website where instead of the three revealed characters (Mii Fighters, Palutena and Pac-Man), the challenger approaching messages display [[http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2014/162/5/0/super_smash_bros_wii_u_3ds_web_site_glitch_3_ikes__by_gsvproductions-d7lww76.jpg 3 Ikes!]]
* [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/633202-super-smash-bros-for-wii-u/69100467 This]] Gamefaqs post has been making this way around some Smash communities. Multiple references have been made to King Dedede from Kirby Air Ride, Urkle's Shirt, Machoman with a fishing pole riding the sun and the suns got sunglasses, and so on.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wnnv5zySAk "SUPER FIGHTING ROBOT! MEGA MAN! FIGHTING TO SAVE THE WORLD!"]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The commentators for E3 2014's invitational tournament screamed the lyrics to the Mega Man cartoon when Mega Man was able to show off his Final Smash.[[/labelnote]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkvvowZEJkM Naturally, this was edited into the actual intro.]]
** Another famous moment was the celebrity match where Greninja was able to use his Final Smash on Kirby and Link...but Bowser, having sent flying off the stage earlier, is still floating on his recovery platform as the Final Smash continues.
** It became a running gag during the invitational to hold up Pikachu cards during the fan favorite votes, long after Pikachu's player, MilkTea, had been eliminated.
** The zap thing! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The lightning bolt item was described by one of the commentators as "[[BuffySpeak the Mario Kart zap thing]]".[[/labelnote]]
*** In a similar vein, the "[[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Maximum Potato.]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Maxim Tomato.[[/labelnote]]
* ''[[Disney/WreckItRalph They invited Pac-Man?!]]'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]With Pac-Man's inclusion in Smash Bros, this particular line from ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' (where Pac-Man was invited to the 30th anniversary of the ''Fix-It Felix Jr.'' game instead of Ralph) becomes fairly appropriate. There's even gifs where Ralph is photoshopped with Captain Falcon's helmet or Ness' head.[[/labelnote]]
* E3 2014 had an amusing fight sequence between Iwata and Reggie that was to promote Mii Fighters in ''Super Smash Bros. 4''. Naturally, memes have sprouted around this, including edits of Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure footage putting Iwata as Star Platinum and Reggie either as Dio or as Jotaro and using Iwata as his stand.
