->''"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 ]]

* '''"SUPER[[note]]or DAIIIIIRANTOU[[/note]]! 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.]]
* Luigi wins by doing absolutely nothing. [[labelnote:Explanation]]What started as a ''VideoGame/MarioParty'' meme bled into Smash Bros when players realized that some starting configurations can make computer players consistently self-destruct before knocking out an idle player. The most obvious setup is Jungle Japes in ''Melee'', where the combination of off-set platforms and rushing water underneath really does a number on the computer player's senses.[[/labelnote]]


[[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 series.[[/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 hitting someone with his up special, 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 special]] 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 says during his victory pose, delivered in the most [[SoBadItsGood strange]], DullSurprise way possible.[[/labelnote]]
** GREAT! AETHERRRR!!! (or as they say in Japan, '''[[{{Mondegreen}} I! HATE! YOU!]]''')
** AETHERRRR!!!! (Or '''[[{{Mondegreen}} PIZZA!]]''')
** You'll get no sympathy from me.
** 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.
* "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."[[labelnote:Explanation]]The tip of his sword does more damage and knockback.[[/labelnote]]
* 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]]. This has become an AscendedMeme with the announcement of Bayonetta as DLC, as her [[http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/053/845/8ef.jpg official art]], which depicts a battle between light and dark, has an axe-wielding Villager on the dark side.
* 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 1.0.4 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]]
** ◥θ┴θ◤ [[labelnote:Explanation]]An {{emoticon}} representing Greninja's face, used in many gameplay montages on [=YouTube=] and often spammed in message board and livestream chat whenever a skilled Greninja player is involved.[[/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. The original Japanese quote is "Dandan nottekita yo!" (Gradually getting the hang of 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]]
** '''MONADO BOY'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]In his reveal trailer, Shulk is called like that by [[MechanicalMonster Metal Face]], an antagonist from ''Xenoblade Chronicles'' who sometimes refers to Shulk as this nickname in the original game. Likely due the the rather obscure status of the series (making this trailer the first contact with the character for a large number of players) and the silliness of the nickname pronounced by the [[LargeHam hammy]] Mechon, it subsequently became a popular way to call Shulk in the ''SSB'' community.[[/labelnote]]
** Because of how similar their names are, a lot of fanarts of Shulk and ComicBook/SheHulk doing each-other's job and/or in the other's outfit appeared.
** Shulk's [[FanserviceCostumes swimsuit alternate costume]] immediately became really popular, a lot of people wishing to see all the other characters with a [[BeachEpisode "swimsuit mode"]] (in a same way people wanted to see everybody in the Zero Suit).
* "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, self-destructing 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 (Static Manny, now known as All Might) [[ForcedMeme kept shouting it]] whenever Diddy would use a down throw>up-aerial 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 from the first N64 Star Fox, 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, a special move Ryu has.[[/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 announcing Bowser Jr. - switching from his "strong" voice to a confused-sounding one.[[/labelnote]]
* The dog from Duck Hunt is a [[Anime/JojosBizarreAdventure stand user]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]Due to the dog's exaggerated pose when summoning a Wild Gunman, which wouldn't be out of place in Jojo.[[/labelnote]]
** The Wii Fit Trainer is a Ripple Master.[[labelnote:Explanation]]The game explicitly says that she uses the PowerOfTheSun and special breathing techniques to empower her attacks.[[/labelnote]]
* GENKAI WO KOERU[[labelnote:Explanation]]Translates to "Break the limit", this is what Cloud says when he triggers Limit Break via charging. The move only uses this line without any variation, and guess how frequently this comes out.[[/labelnote]]
* Big brother is now big sister![[labelnote:Explanation]]Sakura, the younger sister of Corrin if you pick Hoshido, comments with this when showcasing the gender change Corrin has like Robin, making hilarious reactions on the viewers.[[/labelnote]]
** [[GenderBender WOW, EVEN BETTER!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Elise, the younger sister of Corrin if you pick Nohr, replies with this statement of utter glee.[[/labelnote]]
** [[IncrediblyLamePun Corn]] for Smash! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Because Corrin's name looks and sounds similar to the word corn, people have begun photoshopping Corrin into [[http://41.media.tumblr.com/713e7c5a042d95c78b556b5984682079/tumblr_nzft64OqiE1s9tehdo1_1280.png corn]] [[https://40.media.tumblr.com/a0451fa938d44f2a16b924bad81fed33/tumblr_nzf9b4SYie1tsmga7o1_500.jpg related]] [[https://i.imgur.com/vZeiBxQ.png images.]] Corn is also gaining traction as a fandom nickname for them.[[/labelnote]]
** [[UnexpectedCharacter Who the hell is Corrin?!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]A relatively common reaction to Corrin's reveal trailer, due to them being a very new character whose game hasn't even been released outside of Japan yet, leading to some serious confusion for those not familiar with [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Fire Emblem Fates.]][[/labelnote]]
* After Bayonetta's reveal, and the appearance of Kirby's Copy Ability from her, a lot of tumblr fan-artists made fanart of the little pink puffball with Bayonetta's long legs. Not all of it Safe for Work. This has now expanded into Kirby donning Zero Suit Samus' legs, Palutina's legs and even Waluigi's legs.
** "I didn't know Creator/HideoKojima made it into Smash!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]After seeing Kirby's Copy Ability form with Bayonetta, many fans realized he looked ''just like'' the famed Franchise/MetalGear creator.[[/labelnote]]
** "If you need to learn how to talk to a lady, ask [[YourMom your mum]]."[[labelnote:Explanation]]Bayonetta says this during one of her taunts, being taken from one of her taunts in ''Bayonetta 2''. Many fans have associated this line with her taunting fighters who have {{Missing Mom}}s, ''especially'' Lucas, who's mother's death was a major source of TearJerker in [[VideoGame/{{Mother 3}} his home game]]. [[http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/075/882/c41.png Here's]] [[https://vine.co/v/iJHdwOtuq0q a few examples.]][[/labelnote]]
** [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants AND THEN HERE COMES]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hqgitjace_g THE GIANT FIST!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Bayonetta's forward and up smash are giant fists, so some people used that Spongebob clip to explain them.[[/labelnote]]
** Also popular, is claiming your opponent just got "[[BlackComedyRape Fisted]]" after killing them with Bayonetta's forward or up Smash. "You just got fisted!" or "Oops, guess I just fisted you!" and the like.
* $5.99 [[labelnote:explanation]]This stems from complaints about Bayonetta being overpowered, and potentially the best character in the game. Her DLC costs $5.99, so people use it to complain about the game being pay-to-win. Similar complaints have been put out for Cloud and Ryu, although the latter's DifficultButAwesome learning curve eases the pressure.[[/labelnote]]
* Option A, Option B, Refuse to pick a side, [[TakeAThirdOption Join the battle in Smash]][[labelnote:Explanation]]From Corrins announcement trailer.[[/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.[[/labelnote]]
* [[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-styled stages, 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]]
* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NMhGCf20i0 YO DID HE JUST WALK UP SLOWLY AND DOWN SMASH!?]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A quote from Bobby "Scar" Newman when Mang0 performed, what is now, one of the most infamous hard reads at Big House 4. [[/labelnote]]
* We Tech Those! / No Tech Zone![[labelnote:Explanation]]A 'tech' occurs when you are slammed against a wall or floor and quickly recover without bouncing off. In advanced play, teching can save you from bouncing off the side of the platform to your doom, or getting caught in a devastating air combo. Expect these phrases to come up a lot when competitors succeed or fail at it and are punished dearly.[[/labelnote]]
* Isai is too good. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Joel Isai Alvarado, also known as Isai is a former Super Smash Bros. Melee player and currently only plays the original Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo 64. While Isai mains Pikachu, he frequently sandbags tournaments with the entire roster and has basically created the modern metagame and is so far ahead of the other competitors. This can be seen when Isai won Apex 2014 using only Jigglypuff, which resulted in her moving up two spots in the tier list and being at the top of mid-tier. All of these factors combined are how this meme was given birth.[[/labelnote]]
* Zero-to-death combo. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In response to Bayonetta's aerial combo game being considered one of biggest [[GameBreaker game breakers]] in the entire series, with complainers citing that even an only halfway-decent Bayonetta player can juggle an enemy with ease and KO about any percent on any stage, although most infamously, being able to KO an opponent stock from zero percent in one combo.[[/labelnote]]
* HE READ THAT ROLL! [[labelnote:Explanation]] In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH8YrQJfwew&ab_channel=shitaki08&t=7m58s EVO 2013 Loser's Finals (Mango (Fox) vs. Hungrybox (Jigglypuff))]], Mango pulls off one of the most clutch and astounding hard reads ever, reading Hungrybox's roll and charging an up smash, to win the set 2-0 and advance. It quickly becomes known by some as the "Up Smash Heard 'Round The World". [[/labelnote]]
* Ganondorf's Up Tilt [[labelnote:Explanation]] Bizarro Flame, known as one of the best Ganondorf players in the world, has a tendency to show off extremely inefficient but extremely stylish combos to KO his opponents, including one famous one where he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gy2FHHG0TGc&t=2m54s tech chases to combo 5 down airs and the competitively useless up tilt to KO SSBMStrain]].[[/labelnote]]
* 20XX [[labelnote:Explanation]] The competetive Smash community dreams of a time known as 20XX, where everybody in Melee plays FOX at TAS levels of precision, with battles only being decided by controller port priority, leading to the evolution of the Rock Paper Scissors metagame to decide matches. Leads to the obvious chants of "20XX IS NOW!" whenever somebody pulls off a ridiculously stylish move as Fox. [[/labelnote]]
* Multishining [[labelnote:Explanation]] Fox can actually use his reflector multiple times in succession, but it is very hard to pull off. Of course, it is basically useless, but you will see every single newbie try to master the technique instead of more useful ones, like [=SHFFLing=] aerials or shine turnarounds. [[/labelnote]]
* Jigglypuff's back aerial [[labelnote:Explanation]] Jigglypuff's back aerial is famous for having a crazily disjointed hitbox that extends ridiculously long and does a fair amount of knockback, allowing for the Wall of Pain combo, where an opponent is comboed with aerials off the screen. [[/labelnote]]
* Marth's grab range [[labelnote:Explanation]] To save you a long explanation, Marth's grab range is longer than Yoshi's. Who extends his tongue out of his face to grab the opponent, compared to the little grab Marth does.[[/labelnote]]
* Crazy Peach luck [[labelnote:Explanation]] Whenever a Peach player in a match has crazy luck and pulls out multiple stitchfaces (which do a high amount of damage and knockback) or multiple bob-ombs (which are exceptionally rare), expect the commentators to be in complete shock about the favorable randomness. [[/labelnote]]
* Wobbling [[labelnote:Explanation]] The Wobble, an infinite combo named after Ice Climbers player Wobbles, who saw great use of the technique when he placed 2nd at EVO 2013 with great usage of it, occurs when one Ice Climber grabs and pummels the opponent while the other cClimber repeatedly attacks them after the pummels with a forward or down tilt. It is an inescapable combo, leading to a guaranteed stock if done correctly. It has generated extreme controversy in the community over whether it should be banned, but most major tournaments allow it because it does take some skill to pull off and all that is needed its to not fall into any of the setups. [[/labelnote]]
* EASY MONEY!!! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Famous quote from Ganondorf player Bizarro Flame when challenged to a money match. When asked what would happen in the match, Bizarro gave a beautiful re-enactment of Ganondorf's up tilt. Quickly spread due to its meme-iness. [[/labelnote]]
* [=SF5=] Smash 4 - Serge (Lucario) Vs. Darkfall (Link) [=SSB4=] Tournament - Smash Wii U HD [[labelnote:Explanation]] On July 30th 2016, almost 12 thousand videos on [=VGBootCamp's=] YouTube channel had their name changed to the same title named after a match in the Mexican national Smash Factor 5; not to get confused with the common terminology for the [=SF5=] abbreviation, Capcom's fighting game Street Fighter V. This was confirmed as a mistake by [=GimR=], as the VGBC crew were recommended an experienced uploader by many sources, however the uploader had messed up on his first video. The videos have now been fixed to their correct names. [[/labelnote]]
* [=#ESAMOpinions=] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Competitive [=Smash 4=]/[=Melee=] player Eric "ESAM" Lew is known for his very questionable opinions. His mostly known example would be his insistence on Pikachu being one of the best characters in [=Smash 4=]. It is commonly used to refer to a stance that is not widely shared in the [=Smash=] community. [[/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]].
* From the sheer amount of Trailer Reveal Reaction Videos, when Bayonetta is revealed as the final character, its shocking just how many reactions say the exact same thing ...
-->''(Pit appears) "Kid Icarus?" (cut to panning shot) "Hades?" (cut to feminine voice) "Medusa?" (finally the reveal) "BAYONETTA?!"''
** Also, from Sakurai explaining her inclusion and starting with the fact she was the #1 voted choice in Europe, we get the phrase "Thank you, Europe!", sometimes with or without SarcasmMode.


[[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]]
* "______ for Smash!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Became the rallying cry during the voting for the Smash Ballot. The most infamous candidates being John Cena, Goku, Shrek, and Cory in the House.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/gfaqssb/images/1/1b/CorndogShulk.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20141110214421 Corndog Shulk]] [[labelnote: Explanation]] Was on [=GameFAQs=] after someone claimed to have wanted to get a Shulk since Shulk would appear to have an awkward pose. Later someone mentioned how it reminded them of a corndog.[[/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]]
* Sakurai Magic.[[labelnote: Explanation]] When [=TheJWittz=] was shown Cloud Strife's character trailer, this was the explanation he was given as for how Cloud got into Smash (despite his subseries being generally Sony exclusive, and, despite being an iconic UsefulNotes/PlayStation mascot, he wasn't put in [[VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale Sony's own Mascot fighter]])[[/labelnote]]
* "Never ask me for anything ever again."[[labelnote:Explanation]]Comes from [[http://static02.mediaite.com/themarysue/uploads/2015/12/15-1.jpg this comic]], which depicts Sakurai [[TakeThatAudience insulting Smash fans]] for their ridiculous Smash Ballot votes and disregarding them all, ending with this phrase. It popped up again during the December direct, after some rather controversial choices.[[/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]]
* Brawl- Warlock Punch [[labelnote:Explanation]] Brawl Minus is aimed to balance Brawl by making every single character completely overpowered. Ganondorf's neutral special, the Warlock Punch, was edited to do 666% damage and essentially be a one-hit-KO, as it cannot be teched out of, cannot be usefully redirected with SDI or DI, is very hard to roll out of, has too long of a hitbox to be spotdodged, cannot be perfect shielded, cannot be countered, reflected, or interrupted in any way, as Ganondorf has super armor during the punch. The only way to dodge it is to use super armor, which is only really viable as Bowser, or if you can exploit a frame-perfect double jump as Yoshi. It has been regarded as so egregiously bad, that talking about it on the Brawl Minus forums will immediately start a flame war and will get you a Warning.[[/labelnote]]
* Brawl- "lol Spring" combo [[labelnote:Explanation]] Recent discussion as to what changes should be made in the upcoming version 4.0 has landed the forum in a discussion about Sonic. Sonic can essentially get a guaranteed KO on almost every single character from extremely low percentages, most characters being able to be zero-to-death-ed with two moves. The combo consists of a down air off of a ledge immediately canceled by sending a spring out. It is impossible to dodge, as the player is still in hitstun and the move cannot be SDI'd toward the walls to be wallteched or tech walljumped,, and even if the down air is meteor-cancelled, the spring will immediately spike the character downward instead, and the Sonic can recover with the spring. This has been regarded as an extremely cheap combo, with many calling for Sonic's nerfing.[[/labelnote]]


[[folder: Mondegreens ]]

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

* CORN[[labelnote:Explanation]]Due to the way Corrin's name is spelled and pronounced, many have started calling them this.[[/labelnote]]


[[folder: Others ]]

* [[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 an homage to intros from tokusatsu shows such as ''Series/KamenRider''. Its obscurity led to quite a bit of confusion.[[/labelnote]]
* "Mei Ling, Samus took her clothes off!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Snake does a special taunt with Zero Suit Samus as a focus, he seems shocked that Samus ditches her armor.[[/labelnote]]
* 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]]
* 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 latter participates in a match. 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]]
* ''[[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}} Substitute]] 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]]
** [[http://tdstrvn.deviantart.com/art/The-Year-is-20xx-590921279 This picture perfectly sums up the meme]]
* Mario's stars-and-stripes ''NES Open Tournament Golf'' costume has already earned nicknames like [[PatrioticFervor "Uncle Mario" and "America 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, Donkey Kong, Pikachu and Pac-Man 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]]", Pit is [[ViewerGenderConfusion Princess Angel]], 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 "[[VideoGame/MOTHER3 Lucas]]".[[/labelnote]]
* Who I mained, What I expected, What I got. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Many fans have been posting charts labelled like this. The first panel shows the character they played as; the second panel shows their expectations for the character (usually wimpy or childish); and the third panel shows their reaction after playing, generally being rejoiceful or satirical. [[http://41.media.tumblr.com/b18c3d79b508b9e83149350d1495d98f/tumblr_nio5sinRjy1rruwv7o1_500.png Here's an example.]] Many of these can be found on Website/KnowYourMeme and Website/{{Tumblr}}.[[/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 his 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]]
* Super Fire Emblem Bros. [[labelnote:Explanation]]With the announcement of Corrin bringing the number of playable Fire Emblem characters to 6, people have joked that Super Smash Bros. is now becoming a Fire Emblem fighting game (sometimes including some ''Mario'' characters, simultaneously lampooning that series' prevalence in the roster as well).[[/labelnote]]
** Somewhat [[Main/AscendedMeme an Ascended Meme]] as ''[[Website/SmashBoards SmashBoards]]'' changed its website name on April Fool's Day for 2016 to ''Emblem Boards''. This also resulted in every user having their profile pictures and character mains changed to characters relating to the [[Franchise/FireEmblem Fire Emblem]] franchise. Tier lists on that day would focus on waifus and husbandos from said franchise.
* Super Slash Relatively Realistically Proportioned Humans (or alternatively, just Super Slash Bros). [[labelnote:Explanation]]As of Corrin, there are no less than ''12'' sword fighters in [=Sm4sh=] (out of 58), and only 3 look rather cartoony. This has become a point of ridicule.[[/labelnote]]
** Super Anime Swordsman Brothers [[labelnote:Explanation]]"Anime Swordsman" is the typical term used when complaining about said characters, especially the Fire Emblem characters, Cloud and Shulk.[[/labelnote]]
* Such detail.[[labelnote:Explanation]]In the final broadcast, during the part showing off Cloud's alternate costume (the Advent Children) having a variation where the sleeve is gone, the English dub had an odd pause at that part and mentions that statement with such focus.[[/labelnote]]
* Roll Glory. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A common nickname given to For Glory due to many of the less experienced players spamming dodges.[[/labelnote]]
* "Oh would you look at the time!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]An off-shoot of "Shulk Time" (see above) has characters with a clock with the numbers replaced with whatever the catchphrase involving time is: For Robin it's "Tip the scales", for Lucina it's "change fate" and for Bayonetta it's "Witch" (as in Witch Time).[[/labelnote]]
* "Pac-Man's grab feels faster" [[labelnote:Explanation]]When each patch releases, PlaceboEffect runs rampant with many players misreporting false changes that they "feel" happened. The change most notoriously subjected to placebo is Pac-Man's grab, which is infamous for being a very slow and laggy grab [[HitboxDissonance full of deadzones]] that players have begged to get buffed since day 1. Every patch had people claiming the grab was made faster, and sometimes serious debate occurred over what, if any changes happened, only for the hard data to come in showing the grab completely unchanged every time. So now when a new patch drops, or there is news of a patch coming, some of the first and most upvoted posts will be people claiming Pac-Man's grab "feels faster" to mock placebo-stricken players.[[/labelnote]]
* Taunt to get bodied: True Combo [[labelnote:Explanation]]TemptingFate at its finest, many people (often in For Glory) will taunt when they are sure of their victory, only to get destroyed in short order. [[/labelnote]]
