->''"SETTLE IT IN'' SMASH''!"''
-->--'''Xander Mobus, Announcer''', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0G9-DwU2fI North]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKEsviMNOLI American]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4SalDG__nY commercials]] for ''Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS''

''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' has a tendency to create [[MemeticMutation memes]]. Please note, if you wish to add an example here, '''please leave a note or labelnote explaining ''why'' it's an example. ZeroContextExamples are not allowed on TV Tropes.''' Similarly, please try to keep the memes actually related to Smash in some way and make sure they're relatively well known already in the community. This page is not for [[ForcedMeme forcing anything you find funny to become a meme]].

[[folder: The whole series ]]

* '''"SUPAR! SMAAAAAAAAAAAASH BROTHERS![[labelnote:Explanation]]What the LargeHam announcer says after the game's opening cinematic.''[[/labelnote]]
* '''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]]
* '''TVTROPES CONFIRMED FOR SMASH''' or '''TVTROPES joins the Battle!'''[[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.]]


[[folder: Characters ]]

* [[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 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wa5OkdP3-r8 included it]] in a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome spectacular]] HeroicSacrifice.
*** So famous, even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkbA8KGRoNw the game itself]] [[AscendedMeme references it]].
** "HYES!!!!"[[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]]
*** "Shoyu mousse!" is a very popular Mondegreen in Japan, meaning "soy sauce mousse".
** 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]]
* ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'': Ever since the first game came out it's been a popular trend on art sites to make character hats for Kirby. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Since ''Kirby's Adventure'', and for most subsequent games in the series, when Kirby uses his neutral B, the inhale, [[PowerCopying copies his opponent's neutral B]] and gains a hat(since ''Kirby Super Star'') or some form of attire based off the character.[[/labelnote]]
** Speaking of copying, it's a popular trend to have Kirby copy Captain Falcon make remix videos of his version of Falcon Punch with Gourmet Race in the background [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0O8QGwcGlg like this one.]]
* [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Ike]]'s "I FIGHT FOR MY FRIENDS"[[labelnote:Explanation]]What he he says during his victory pose.[[/labelnote]]
** GREAT! AETHERRRR!!! (or as they say in Japan, '''[[{{Mondegreen}} I! HATE! YOU!]]''')
** Ike isn't immune to this in Japan either. Thanks to [[http://www.smashbros.com/wii/en_us/gamemode/etc/images/etc01/etc01_080307_011-l.jpg this snapshot]] from the official ''Brawl'' website, it is a common joke in the fandom to superimpose a doughnut on Ike's face and call him "Donutman".
** 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. The Japanese fandom has taken to calling this model of him "Gorilla Ike". He is usually grouped up with Mega Swampert from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]'' and Knuckles from ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' due to the similar buffed up appearances.
* ''Franchise/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]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPXy7MTiv9I&feature=youtu.be Even Tails decided to get in on that meme]], [[WesternAnimation/SonicBoom albeit six years later.]]
** "'''[[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]]
** The other taunt, "COME ON! STEP IT UP!" gets this a lot too.
** ''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.
* "HIYAYAYAYA!!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''Brawl'', Pit's Kiai scream (with length varying) when using his Side-Special, Angel Ring, became heavily associated with him due to how effective of a SpamAttack Angel Ring is as a move and how annoying it can be. In some circles it went to become the move's FanNickname. For better or worse Angel Ring was replaced with Upperdash Arm in the fourth game.[[/labelnote]]
* Marth[[DudeLooksLikeALady (a)]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Many people noticed Marth's incredibly {{Bishounen}} appearance, certain feminine animations, and the fact that he wears a tiara. The addition of [[DistaffCounterpart Lucina]] in the fourth game didn't help.[[/labelnote]]
** His white costume looking like a wedding dress.
** "Just the tip."
* From Robin and Lucina's reveal trailer, the "No, you'll get it today" subtitle at the end became memetic around the Japanese fanbase, often used to mock other characters who didn't become playable.
** Also, good luck mentioning Robin without someone mentioning tipping scales somewhere along the thread. This has sometimes been lumped together with the "Shulk time" meme mentioned below.
** To a lesser extent, Lucina's "I challenge my fate!" line has seemed to become somewhat quotable around the fanbase, as it was in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening her original game]].
** Robin, the [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Avatar. Master of All Four Elements]][[labelnote:Explanation]] In Palutena's codec about Robin, she starts out with "That's Robin-also known as the Avatar." Replace Earth with Nosferatu and give Robin a water bottle and (s)he's got the bases covered.[[/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]], [[MemeticBadass many]] [[AxCrazy horri]][[MemeticPsychopath fying]] [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/creepy-animal-crossing-villager ways]].
* 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.
** Most of this is now HilariousInHindsight with Mewtwo's reveal as a DLC character.
** "Wait, [insert minor complaint here]!? Better {{nerf}} Greninja." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Similar to ''Memes/LeagueOfLegends'' and its "Better nerf Irelia" meme. There's a perception that Greninja has received nerfs in ''every patch since launch'' ([[DeadUnicornTrope He was only nerfed considerably in 1.04 and has actually only been buffed ever since]]) even though Greninja isn't out of line, while other characters remain stronger than him. It has since become a joke that whenever a huge bug is found, the patch that fixes it will include a nerf to Greninja thrown in for good measure.[[/labelnote]]
* I hope you enjoy my good friend Shulk :)[[labelnote:Explanation]]The Gematsu leaker, who had previously gotten the majority of his predictions correct, positively said that Shulk would be revealed for an at-the-time upcoming announcement. The reveal in question then proceeded to turn out to be Robin and Lucina, which cast the credibility of the remainder of his leak into question. The phrase was then used to mock people who wanted/thought Shulk would be in, until ''he really '''did''' get in'', at which point the phrase was used triumphantly by Shulk fans.[[/labelnote]]
** [[AscendedMeme Now it's Shulk time!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Based on the already memetic "Now it's Reyn time!" from [[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} Shulk's game of origin]], this is the first line he recites after his official confirmation in his trailer. His ridiculously British accent does not help.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiofJ0_5Sb4 "I'm really feeling it!"]][[labelnote:Explanation]]When Shulk said "I'm really feeling it!" in his reveal, people thought his line was [[{{Narm}} awkwardly hilarious]] and already made many jokes about it.[[/labelnote]]
** One of Shulk's lines in Japanese, "Odayaka janai desu ne?"[[labelnote:Translation]]"Not being gentle, huh?"[[/labelnote]], also has gone memetic in the Japanese fanbase. This quote is used in place of his "Shulk time" taunt in the Japanese versions, and in Xenoblade itself is the equivalent to "It looks like we don't have a choice!", meaning it was also his trailer title, possibly explaining its popularity. Strangely, Shulk is still memetic in Japan despite his lack of an accent in the original.
** "This is the Monado's power!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another taunt from Shulk, generally used by people to describe a great play or fail on a Shulk player's part. Like his other taunts, made more amusing by his British accent. This is also the only taunt of his that is almost identical in meaning between English and Japanese, since in Japanese he says "Monado no chikara yo!" (Oh, power of the Monado! (as in "I call upon thee!"))[[/labelnote]]
** Shulk is just a photoshopped Little Mac.[[labelnote:Explanation]]When the 4chan leaker posted a screenshot of the roster, its detractors claimed that Shulk's portrait appeared to be a shopped Little Mac, as their faces were turned at the exact same angle and their eyes were almost exactly the same. Now that Shulk has been revealed (and it turned out that the "photoshopped" portrait was real), pictures featuring Shulk are often sarcastically claimed to contain a "shopped Little Mac".[[/labelnote]]
** "Back Slash!" "Air Slash!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The names of both Shulk's side and up special respectively (two of his original arts from his home game). Even though it's mainly for his British accent as mentioned in the above notes, a small number of circles tend to treat the names of such moves as [[DoubleEntendre naughty]] [[FreudWasRight jokes]]... but it gets even worse with his "I'm really feeling it" quote up above, AND the fact that he has a shirtless costume...[[/labelnote]]
* "Roy is in Super Smash Bros. 4!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A NamesTheSame joke that implies that Roy from ''Fire Emblem'' is returning, when it's really Roy Koopa (or, less commonly, Marth with a PaletteSwap in Roy's colors). Eventually, the ''Fire Emblem'' Roy also returned via DLC, which is {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by having Roy show animosity towards the Koopaling and attacking him mid-trailer. A Classic mode clear image on the 3DS version shows them both being pals and riding Roy Koopa's clown car together.[[/labelnote]]
** Among the Japanese fanbase, Roy (FE) is associated with curry, thanks to [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CHhcXxLUcAAkDz8.jpg the winner of a photo contest]] from the ''Melee'' days. There is always at least one curry-related post that can be seen floating around in his Miiverse sub-community, and even his ''Wii U/3DS'' reveal trailer [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CHhcZsCUsAAQggs.png references the photo.]]
** Since the Young Lion's DLC release, its become common to show art of the two Roys being friends, if not rivals.
* Where's Meta Knight's sword?[[labelnote:Explanation]] One of the nerfs Meta Knight got in the fourth game is reduced range in his attacks, to the point where some people joke that he doesn't have a sword.[[/labelnote]]
** Looks like Meta Knight borrowed Roy's sword for Smash 4. [[labelnote:Explanation]] In Melee, Roy also had hitboxes that didn't match up with his moves' animations.[[/labelnote]]
* "You ain't no air-fighter, Mac." [[labelnote:Explanation]] Taken from one of Doc Louis's quotes in Little Mac's introductory trailer, this is used to make fun of Little Mac's ineffectiveness at attacking in the air, or sometimes to point out the irony if he does manage to beat someone with an air attack.[[/labelnote]]
** Little Mac jumping off the edge of Final Destination.[[labelnote:Explanation]] In 4, inexperienced players would often use Little Mac on For Glory mode. They would often accidentally use the Jolt Haymaker (Mac's side special) to leap off the edge of Final Destination, killing themselves in the process.[[/labelnote]]
** Dicking on Little Mac. [[labelnote:Explanation]] AlpharadTV on Youtube has had ''quite'' a good time messing with For Glory Little Macs, taking advantage of his awful recovery. Others have followed in his footsteps. [[/labelnote]]
** Following the above, "Dash Attack Does Not Work On Shield." [[labelnote:Explanation]] Typically how Little Mac dicking starts. [[/labelnote]]
* Hoo! Hah! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Born at Paragon 2015 where a member of the crowd [[ForcedMeme kept shouting it]] whenever Diddy would use a dthrow>uair combo. Well-known player Hungrybox (who plays as Jigglypuff) got so irritated with hearing it that he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB-6oRB4ABo ragequit]], forfeiting the set.[[/labelnote]]
* Ganon[[http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/904/342/893.png dunk]]! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Ganon in Smash 4 has become notorious for his use of Flame Choke to perform [[http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/851/687/3fe.gif Ganoncide]] . In Brawl on last stock behavior, it was unpredictable whether he won, lost, or sudden death occurred. Cut to Smash 4 on last stock behavior and he always wins! [[/labelnote]]
** Ganondorf, King of Disrespect! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ganon got his nickname as the "King of Disrespect" because he's slow but hits hard. This means playing him requires precision and hard reads. Also, since he is a Falcon clone, his playstyle naturally lends itself to looking flashy (especially in ''Melee'', while in ''Brawl'' he's gained a majority of his own sluggish animations), much like he is disrespecting his foes. His ability to Ganondunk and gain an easy KO on an opponent who lets him do this also contributes to the disrespect.[[/labelnote]]
* FIYER! LEEEAAANNNDMAAASSSSTUUUURRRRRRRRRR! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Fox's [[VideoGame/StarFox64 "new"]] voice in ''Smash 4'', provided by Mike West, has been subject to SnarkBait, with many players thinking that he sounds too dorky and annoying for someone as {{Badass}} as Fox [=McCloud=]. [[/labelnote]]
** In the Japanese version of ''Brawl'', in the Corneria stage EasterEgg, Falco says that the enemy attacks are "like soumen" (a type of noodle; translated as "overcooked noodles"), causing the others to lampshade how ridiculous that sounds. The fandom ran with this, and he earned the eternal nickname "soumen".
* After Pac-Man's reveal, it became common among some Japanese Miiverse posters to have him conjure up various items; this soon led to him conjuring sprites of unconfirmed characters like Ness with the aforementioned "No, you'll get it today" subtitle (which in Japanese read more like "not really").
* For whatever reason, {{Film/Shrek}}/[[Manga/DragonBall Goku]] in Smash. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Shrek and Goku are popular joke votes[=/=]suggestions poking fun at the naive who legitimately want them in Smash despite Sakurai himself stating only people who debuted in video games first before any other medium would be elligable for Smash.[[/labelnote]]
** "[[https://miiverse.nintendo.net/posts/AYQHAAABAACNUKFKX1qftA Here's your Shrek and Goku.]] You happy now?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A joking Miiverse posted parodying the Goku and Shrek joke votes for the ballot.[[/labelnote]]
* "Talk is cheap." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ryu's Side Taunt in Smash Wii U and 3DS. Can be used as a counter-taunt to...well, taunt spammers.[[/labelnote]]
** "My/Your range was one fist short."[[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Ryu's victory quotes. Used by a player whenever an attack is just out of range of hitting or getting hit by an opponent.[[/labelnote]]
** Sakurai: "Capcom, could we put Ryu in ''Smash''?" Capcom: "Sure you can!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]A word play on Shoryuken, an attack used by Ryu.[[/labelnote]]
* Because I'm a big fan of Meow Meow Mario.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Nintendo demonstrated the Smash Ballot by voting for Cat Mario with this reason attached. Seeing as it's a pretty petty reason even by Smash fans' standards, it inevitably became memetic.[[/labelnote]]
* '''BOWSER!''' ...Junior? [[labelnote:Explanation]]The announcer in Smash 3DS/Wii U has a rather...strange...reaction to the player picking Bowser Jr. - switching from his "strong" voice to a confused-sounding one.[[/labelnote]]


[[folder: Competitive ]]

* "[[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 variation 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.
* No Johns[[labelnote:Explanation]]A term meaning "no excuses" made up by a small group of ''Melee'' players after their friend of the same name ''Melee'' player who was known for making up reasons for why he lost. As the ''Melee'' community grew and the group kept using it as an in-joke, it gained popularity.[[/labelnote]]
** This one got a small revival in 2014 after Reggie Fils-Aimé 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.
** Officially an AscendedMeme as a randomly generated nickname in Smash 4.
* '''[[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!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pD_imYhNoQ4 WOMBO COMBO!!!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]during a 2v2 match, [=SilentSpectre=] (Captain Falcon) and Tang (Fox) 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! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A famous line from the Wombo Combo video.[[/lablenote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcWLT8a6iqk For Glory Mac Mode.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Short after release, Little Mac being fairly simple to use and perfect for final destination, became one of the most used characters on For Glory mode (and by consequence, one of the most hated). [[/labelnote]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6vqWxTku8I [=FalcoMaster3000=]]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]] A joke was made at a competitive Melee tournament that, based on the sheer popularity of Fox and Falco in competitive tournaments, that there is a line of "[[=FalcoMasters=]]", genetically engineered humans that are made for the specific purpose of playing Fox and Falco to perfection. This caused a player, wearing a mask and sunglasses to cover his face, not saying a single word, and only putting down his name as "[[=FalcoMaster3000=]]", to show up at a professional Canadian Smash tournament and win with Fox, Falco and Marth. He went nine hours without taking off the mask to talk or even eat, and nobody knows his identity.[[/labelnote]]
* "Press 1 if you feel *insert emotion* for Hungrybox/*insert player*" [[labelnote:explanation]]A series of videos about Hungrybox, world's best Jigglypuff, having various emotions at different times, mostly as he's getting his butt kicked. The "Press 1" part originates from tournament announcers interacting with their Twitch streams. Perhaps the most infamous of these is the aptly-named "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB-6oRB4ABo Press 1 if you feel mad for Hungrybox]]"; the origin of the term "HOO-HAH". Other videos in this series include "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khB9mhbhdr8 Press 1 If You Feel Bad For Hungrybox]]", "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAMsQSiVCYw Press 1 if you feel sad for Hungrybox]]". This meme has also spread to other players, with such titles as "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxhteXZrPes Press 1 if you feel sad for Leffen"]], "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhRtFwZ7XCg Press 1 If You Feel Bad for Barthurs]] and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDyCs6-ePZ0 Press 1 if you feel bad for Zer0"]], among [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdiTO7Aji_g many]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vp1IFtTBNk4 other]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOFu0nm5o6Q versions]] of the same phrase.[[/labelnote]]
* We Esports now. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said in regards to Melee's rapidly expanding competitive community, after EVO 2013 and multiple big-name tournaments in 2014 like EVO and MLG Anaheim, as well as an invitational tournament at E3 held by Nintendo themselves.[[/labelnote]]


[[folder: Fan Videos ]]

* Anything from the three Brawl Taunts videos from Newgrounds... (but most people saw them on Website/YouTube.)
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8hvqTSCg-g YOU CAN HAVE... MY BIG GAY DANCE!]]
* Mixing normal moves with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaTb9FWXHp0 X-Rays]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpVQwVTYsto fr]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svnayYpOko4 om]] the most recent Franchise/MortalKombat games. [[NightmareFuel Suddenly, certain moves just became quite disturbing]].


[[folder: Forums (usually Website/Game FA Qs) ]]

* 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]], [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Snoic]], [[VideoGame/{{Earthbound}} Noss]], or especially [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Metrod]], which also adds the "[[IAmNotShazam Samus is not Metroid]]" meme to the mix) on the [=GameFAQs=] board for Brawl.
* "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 ''Anime/{{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]]
* 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]]
* "20xxbot, define tvtropes." "I'm sorry, I wasn't able to find that term in my database, most likely due to a misspelling, the desired term not coming right after "define", or the term not being in my database. The correct way to ask me for a definition is "20xxbot define [term]". If you'd like for the term you asked for to be added to my database, please message kirby_freak and he'll look into it!A list of terms that 20xxbot recognizes is listed here." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Redditor kriby_freak created a bot on the Super Smash Bros subreddit called 20xxbot, which would define advanced terminology when prompted. While its list of terminology is 21 pages long, it became apparent that it wasn't long enough, and whenever somebody wanted to define not listed, it would reply with the above message. This quickly became a copypasta on r/smashbros.[[/labelnote]]
* [[Memes/TheSimpsons "Old Man Yells at Cloud"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Upon the announcement of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud Strife]] as a newcomer, several fans were confused or outraged at the reveal. Naturally, this meme circulated, sometimes with edits to include the actual Cloud or other popular newcomer choices like King K. Rool or Snake.[[/labelnote]]


[[folder: Masahiro Sakurai ]]

* JAPAN TIME[[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 on Japanese mornings, this meant checking at unusual hours for it in more Western countries.[[/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]]
* [[ScrappyMechanic *trips*]] '''[[SkywardScream SAKURAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!]]'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]''Brawl'' introduced a mechanic in which characters would randomly trip while running. This was the reaction.[[/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.]]
* Mashpotato Samurai.[[labelnote:Explanation]]This comes from a Miiverse post that [[RougeAnglesOfSatin misspelled]] series creator Masahiro Sakurai's name as such.[[/labelnote]]
** Anything that sounds vaguely like Masahiro Sakurai (e.g. Massive Hero Sack of Fries) also works
* Sakurai hates Chrom.[[labelnote:Explanation]] Every time Chrom appears, it's to make fun of him. This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yCNTnfxhkU&list=UUfAPTv1LgeEWevG8X_6PUOQ video]] really hammers it in, with the Kid Icarus characters joking that Chrom's taking a nap, having Chrom himself say that Robin was a better choice than him, Viridi stating that he'd be a clone of Ike without the unique moves and a crestfallen Chrom realizing he's useless until the Final Smash.[[/labelnote]]
* Sakurai Bias.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A complaint towards Sakurai's alleged favoritism or dislike of certain franchises determining the characters on the roster. Often cited as the reason Kid Icarus has three playable characters (as Sakurai directed ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising''), more than some long-established franchises that [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff have more popularity outside of Japan]] (eg. Metroid), but is often used to complain about any character choice or exclusion without any particular reasoning.[[/labelnote]]


[[folder: Mods ]]

* 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]]

* Some popular {{Mondegreen}}s include "Hands off my bread!", "Too easy, pizza-cake!", "Falcon Thrust!", "Rape the targets!", and "Landbastard!"
* [[{{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]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7C85UPINBbM Snake, do you know who that is?]]
* [[VideoGame/TheLegendaryStarfy Stafy]], why did you even come here?[[labelnote:Explanation]]Possible shoot comment from the official website when introducing Sta(r)fy as an assist trophy.[[/labelnote]]
* 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]]
* "Heroes always arrive late."[[labelnote:Explanation]]This cryptic sentence ended the music update post for "Go K.K. Rider!" It's a paraphrase of a semi-common quote used in sentai series. The song is a remix of the original ''KamenRider'' intro. Its obscurity led to quite a bit of confusion.[[/labelnote]]
* "Mei Ling, Samus took her clothes off!"
* 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]]
* 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]]
* ''[[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]]
* ''[[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]]
* The year is 20XX. Everyone plays Fox. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A hypothetical post-apocalyptic year where the knowledge and skill of players have reached a point where they play with absolute perfection, and can no longer improve; Fox, being the most efficient character in the roster, is the only viable character left; and as a result of every player playing perfectly, the matches are determined by a rock-paper-scissors match for port priority.[[/labelnote]]
* Mario's stars-and-stripes ''NES Open Tournament Golf'' costume has already earned nicknames like [[PatrioticFervor "Uncle Mario" and "'Murica Mario"]]. Many jokes like [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BsLH1LFCIAEBU45.png:large this one]] are popping up.
* "I suppose I'll get my chance... another day..." [[labelnote:Explanation]] Chrom's statement in the reveal trailer for Lucina and Robin, who were both confirmed while he was simultaneously deconfirmed. The statement's been used to refer to other characters that are looking less likely to appear, such as [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Ridley]] and [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Mewtwo]].[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreed Yes, you can play as a female Robin. No, it didn't double our work load to make that character]] @Creator/{{Ubisoft}}. [[labelnote:Explanation]][[https://twitter.com/Reggie_NOA/status/488694239057149953 A parody Twitter account]] threw shade at Ubisoft for not including female characters in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreed Unity'' because they were too hard and time consuming, compared to Smash having both male and female models for the same character.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising "I told you, Pit. It's Super Bash Sisters."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]What Palutena misremembered ''Super Smash Bros.'' as in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'', it's gained use due to the high number of female characters in Smash 3DS/Wii U - including Palutena herself.[[/labelnote]]
* The HotterAndSexier design of Samus's [[SensualSpandex Zero Suit]] has resulted in everyone getting drawn in her Zero Suit, and we do mean ''[[WholesomeCrossdresser everyone]]''.
* FEET CONFIRMED FOR SMASH! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Tying in with the meme of none of the 3D character models in ''Awakening'' having feet, fans were delighted and tickled when they saw that Lucina, Robin and Chrom's Smash models did. [[/labelnote]]
* "Settle it in ''Smash''!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]The [[NoIndoorVoice empathically-declared]] {{slogan}} used in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0G9-DwU2fI English]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKEsviMNOLI commercials]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4SalDG__nY for]] ''Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS'', being Nintendo's primary method suggested regarding the resolution of disagreements.[[/labelnote]]
* [[Music/TheTurtles So happy]] [[SoundtrackDissonance together...]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]''Everything'' from the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K783SDTBKmg original English commerical]] for the Nintendo 64 game has become memetic in some way or another. From the sheer ridiculousness of the concept to the dissonant yet somehow fitting choice of music to ''Creator/DonLaFontaine'' as the narrator, it's widely considered to be one of the best -- and funniest -- commercials that Nintendo has ever produced.[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{Mondegreen}} Da]] [[CountryMatters Cunt]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A {{Mondegreen}} and FanNickname for VideoGame/DuckHunt. Is somewhat lost on the european version where they're instead named "Duck Hunt Duo."[[/labelnote]]
* LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}} wrote these descriptions.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A few of the new trophy descriptions are rife with puns, including those for Eggplant Pit and Fly Guy. Some fans of the games linked them to Chuggaaconroy's tendency to spout awful puns himself.[[/labelnote]]
* The "50 Facts" Direct for the Wii U version has become a FountainOfMemes in itself thanks to the amazingly theatrical ([[YoungerThanTheyLook and surprisingly young]]) Xander Mobus, its LargeHamAnnouncer:
** ''' ''BUTTONS!!!'' ''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Xander Mobus as the Announcer [[LargeHam goes to town with the ham]], noticeably making even mundane things such as the return of button configuration [[MundaneMadeAwesome sound exciting]].[[/labelnote]]
** ''' ''A MICROPHONE!'' ''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Announcer states this triumphantly when describing the game's voice chat features, pointing out the Wii U Gamepad's built-in microphone.[[/labelnote]]
** ''' ''IT'S NOT EVEN COMPARABLE!'' '''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Stated by the announcer when comparing the amount of songs in the Wii U version to the amount of songs in the 3DS version.[[/labelnote]]
** '''''BOY, IS IT SWEET TO LINE 'EM UP LIKE THIS!'''''[[labelnote:Explanation]] Stated after talking about the amiibo functionality, making very little sense in context. Expect this to be said whenever any set of things are lined up.[[/labelnote]]
* Please secure your wrist strap to safely contain hype. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Common in any hype-worthy situation, mostly in the ''VideoGame/ProjectM'' community.[[/labelnote]]
* Naming characters in Smash Bros. [[labelnote:Explanation]]There are a few videos and images of people getting other people (usually those who are [[PopCultureIsolation not gamers or are unfamiliar with Nintendo games]]) to name various characters that appear in the Smash Bros. games. A few like Mario and Pikachu are recognizable enough to get named correctly, but others are less lucky and get more [[AccidentalMisnaming amusing monikers]]. A short list of examples: Mega Man is "[[Anime/AstroBoy Astro Boy]]", Rosalina is "[[Disney/{{Frozen}} Elsa]]", Kirby is "Ghost Peach", Fox [=McCloud=] is "[[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Rocket Raccoon]]", etc.. A particularly amusing example is in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lewNCk7OjxU StephenVlog's video.]] When Ness rolls around, the parents somehow call him both "[[VideoGame/EarthBoundBeginnings Ninten]]" and "Lucas".[[/labelnote]]
** Of the "serious" character nominations, the fanbase that appear to be the [[SeriousBusiness most desperate]] for wanting their character to win would have to be Princess Daisy fans. Like Ridley, people have joked about Daisy's exclusion from Smash.
* Bowser broke the stream.[[labelnote:Explanation]]In the Super Smash Bros. Brawl Grand Finals of Super Smash Con 2015, Esam was down 2-0 against Mew2King's [[GameBreaker Meta Knight]]. Since is Pikachu and Samus got him nowhere, he decided to roll the dice and go in with Bowser. At first Esam was actually giving Mew2King a run for his money, but then he tried to grab the ledge with the Bowser Bomb similar to Yoshi and SD'd. At the same time, VGBootCamp's stream went down, spawning a joke about how Bowser broke the stream by crashing into the bottom.[[/labelnote]]
