%%PLEASE, REMEMBER: Memes that don't explain where they came from will be deleted. Even if you think it's self explanatory, there are people who will not get it. There is no such thing as a universal meme.
----
!!Please add entries in the following format:
* The name of the video game or company.
** The meme. [=[[=]labelnote:Explanation[=]]=]The explanation behind the meme, if necessary.[=[[=]/labelnote[=]]=] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Like this.[[/labelnote]]
** Further mutations and successor memes, if any.
----
!!Formatted examples:

* ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpires'': Wololo [[labelnote:Explanation]]The sound that a priest makes in [[VideoGame/AgeOfEmpiresI the first Age of Empires]]. Became a taunt for ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpiresII''.[[/labelnote]]
** [[SpeakingSimlish Roggan?]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of the speeches when selecting a villager.[[/labelnote]]
** The image of the king from the cover became an "advice animal" style meme, often lampshading strange logic of the games. Text accompanying him included "Attack stone castle. It catches fire" and "10 elephants fit in a boat. 11 archers don't."
* ''VideoGame/AlteredBeast'': [[ElmuhFuddSyndwome WISE FWOM YO GWAVE!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]This line in uttered in the beginning of the game and ends up sounding like it's said by Elmer Fudd due to hardware limitations.[[/labelnote]]
** POWER UP.
** NEVER GIVE UP. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said when using a continue in the Arcade version only, as the Genesis version did not have enough space to recreate the quote.[[/labelnote]]
** WELCOME TO YOUR [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom DOOM]]! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The BigBad's line before every boss fight.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLHlZcDT35U This whole video]] of ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]This reaction video has come to represent the level of fear you experience while playing.[[/labelnote]]
** What even is that thing? [[labelnote:Explanation]]Whatever it is, it is ''not'' traditional fire.[[/labelnote]]
*** The "Not a traditional fire" line actually became a FunTShirt at one point, qualifying as an AscendedMeme in the process.
** Oh GOD, I have to go into this next room. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Is pretty much the unofficial tagline for the game. Every time the player enters a new room, they have to face a brand new horror. Or sometimes, [[NothingIsScarier nothing at all]].[[/labelnote]]
** Oh shit, I have a bag of Milky Ways! :D
*** AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The video in question is taken from three friends playing simultaneously while chatting. One of them finds a bag of Milky Ways right before something scary happens to another, making it sound as though the player was in mortal terror of said candy.[[/labelnote]]
** The floor is made of terrible!
** Go to (pick any level), NOPE. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another popular gif shows a player opening a door only to be confronted with a monster emerging from the shadows. Their reaction is to simply shut the door and briskly walk back the way they came.[[/labelnote]]
** Similarly, there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-zjGzCxpuc the shortest Let's Play ever]].
* ''Videogame/BeyondTwoSouls'': "Game Overs are a failure of the game designer" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Taken from an interview with developer David Cage, and has since become something that he'll [[NeverLiveItDown never live down]].[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'': In Claptrap Web Series, we meet Steve. ''HEYOOO!!!'' '''*shot*'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Hey says that in response to Claptrap's "Hey Steve!", and shoots a fellow bandit down.[[/labelnote]]
** '''YOU WOKE THE WRONG DOG! AWW YEAH!''
** ''Nine Toes! (Also: he has three balls!)''[[labelnote:Explanation]]First actual 'Boss' you face in the game.[[/labelnote]]
** '''ROAR FOR ME PANDORA!!!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Moxxy. Need I say more?[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'': Butt Stallion [[labelnote:Explanation]]Early on in the game, Handsome Jack calls up the player to talk about a pony made of diamonds that he bought that he plans to name "Piss-for-brains" in honor of the player. He later settles upon the name "Butt Stallion". Comparisons to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rarity]] are inevitable.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Catherine}}''
** "X has appeared. It's a killer. Do not die."[[labelnote:Explanation]]The BossWarningSiren.[[/labelnote]]
** "LOVE IS OVER"[[labelnote:Explanation]]The GameOver screen.[[/labelnote]]
** "Edge. Edge. Edge. Edge."[[labelnote:Explanation]]Blocks can be held up by the edges of other blocks. When a falling block is caught in this way, the announcer calls out "Edge."[[/labelnote]]
*** "Undo. Undo. Undo. Undo."[[labelnote:Explanation]]On Easy and Normal modes, the player can undo their last action, e.g. if the player gets [[UnwinnableByDesign stuck]]. Again, the announcer calls out every instance of this action.[[/labelnote]]
* [=GameStop=] [[http://bulk.destructoid.com/ul/user/1/18908-113636-TOUCHDOOOOOWNjpg-468x.jpg turning]] ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' into ''Film/NapoleonDynamite''.
** Let's not forget the singing robot Gato!
---> "My name is Gato,
---> I have metal joints,
---> Beat me up,
---> And earn fifteen silver points!"
** HP/MP restored! ...but you're still hungry. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Healing devices found in the gloomy 2300 AD give this message.[[/labelnote]]
** GoodMorningCrono!
** [[YouCantFightFate But... the future refused to change.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Text from the bad ending triggered when you die against Lavos.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOeE06FUZL4 You have been Robo-Rolled!]][[labelnote:Explanation]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEOSLHZwKwM Robo's theme]] sounded coincidentally like Music/RickAstley's Never Gonna Give You Up to some fans.[[/labelnote]]
*** "Rocket Roll'd" is an alternate term for this. [[labelnote:Explanation]]After the name of one of his techs.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-AfvgFfSSk Burn! Bobonga!]] had been used memetically, especially in Website/{{YTMND}}, for [[MemeticMolester Brian Peppers]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}}'': Nuclear Gandhi.[[labelnote:Explanation]]The fanbase regularly enjoys giggles from Gandhi lacking his real life ActualPacifist qualities. Officially an AscendedMeme as of Civ V, which gives him a "Use of Nukes" rating of 12... out of 10.[[/labelnote]]
** Our words are backed with NUCLEAR WEAPONS![[labelnote:Explanation]]This threat was tacked onto dialogues (even friendly ones) in ''I'' and ''II'' when a civilization had the capacity to build nukes. Especially memetic and entertaining when it's Gandhi, as in the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/civ1.png page image]].[[/labelnote]]
** Spearman vs. Tank. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Sometimes obsolete units get lucky with the RNG. Sometimes they get ''really'' lucky, as in the classic example of spearmen (one of the earliest, weakest units) defeating modern-era tanks.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'':
** "[[IAmNotLeftHanded That was left-handed!]]" and "[[StuffBlowingUp Got a present for ya!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Some of the original Commando unit's one-liners.[[/labelnote]]
** "PEACE THROUGH POWER!" and "KANE LIVES IN DEATH!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Some of the Brotherhood of Nod's slogans.[[/labelnote]]
*** "[[IncomingHam KANE! LIVES!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A deliciously hammy moment from ''Tiberian Sun'', when Kane makes his big reappearance to the Brotherhood.[[/labelnote]]
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZQdaEFa_60 AK-47s for everyone!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A YouHaveResearchedBreathing quote from ''Generals'', [[http://ak47s.ytmnd.com/ officially recognized]] as a meme by {{YTMND}}[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors''
** "YOU FLAMING IDIOTS!!!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]From ''[=DW3=]'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeSMpetv34M uttered by Zhang Bao]]. [[NarmCharm Thank you, terrible English dubbing]].[[/labelnote]]
** "Don't pursue Lu Bu!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Also from ''[=DW3=]'', a warning from Yuan Shao at the Battle at Hu Lao Gate. Despite being a BonusBoss for the second story stage, Lu Bu is the most powerful character in the entire game. This has generally held up through the games' numbered iterations to the point that if you kill him in ''[=DW7=]'', you get the achievement "[[AscendedMeme Okay, you can pursue Lu Bu]]." In later games in the series, Cao Cao utters this line instead of Yuan Shao.[[/labelnote]]
** "In death, my soul will be my brethren!" [sic] [[labelnote:Explanation]]From [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34TerX7pkGs Guan Yu's death scene]] in ''3'' (again!), Guan Yu forgets a certain preposition between the words "be" and "my". Hint: it's not on, in, to, by, for, at, of, from, as...[[/labelnote]]
** "'''[[BrokenRecord BENEVOLENCE!]]'''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]As seen in ''7'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4G_DB-WhbR4 the Shu faction has an unhealthy fondness with the word "benevolence".]][[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'': KILL THE MOUSE TAKE HIS HOUSE KILL THE MOUSE TAKE HIS HOUSE [[labelnote:Explanation]]Back when the first details of the game were released, it appeared as if WesternAnimation/{{Oswald|TheLuckyRabbit}} ([[MickeyMouse Mickey's]] jealous half-brother) was going to be the villain. 4chan picked up the ball and turned Ozzie into a funky Disney mix of [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Liquid Snake]] and [[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon Alma]], with him constantly dripping ink/blood. The meme is his MadnessMantra, which appears to be derived from ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse''.[[/labelnote]]
* Among the ''VideoGame/EternalDarkness'' [[CultClassic fanbase]]:
** "This... can't be happening!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Characters say this to themselves after recovering from the effects of a low SanityMeter[[/labelnote]]
** "''CHARLEMAAAGNE!!''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Holy Roman page boy Anthony desperately wants to save Charlemagne from a sinister plot. Even his death doesn't prevent him from sobbing about it.[[/labelnote]]
** "'''''MAY THE RATS EAT YOUR EYES!'''''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]From one of Maximilian Roivas' magnificent insane rants.[[/labelnote]]
** Needs more Pargon. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Pargon rune is used to empower magick, but due to the game's spellcasting system an upper-tier spell can have four out of its seven component runes be Pargon, turning once-ominous incantations into {{Narm}}.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey'':, '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dB_PVPyn6n8 F.O.E.]]!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]{{IOSYS}} made a famous music video parodying the NintendoHard nature of the game and the "Fucking Overpowered Enemies" contained within.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'': Kratos plays the lottery and loses. (''"Rage of Sparta" begins to play in the background'') [[labelnote:Explanation]]Rage of Sparta is the music track that generally plays whenever Kratos kills one of the gods in the third game. People have started to apply it to whenever Kratos gets pissed enough to kill something.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Hitman}}'': [[http://i.imgur.com/3xCNn.jpg Allan please add detail]][[labelnote:Explanation]]An infamous detail for a crate holster in ''Hitman: Blood Money'', presumably a note to one of the programmers to add details before release. Spun off into its own meme to refer to unfinished moments in other video games.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Limbo}}'': BEAR TRAP! [[labelnote:Explanation]]From the first major section of the game, the Forest. Finding one is usually a player's first death in the entire game.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'': RAWKIT LAWNCHAIR! HEAVY MASHEEN GUN! SHAWTGUHN! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The "announcer's" GratuitousEnglish pronunciations, upon acquiring each weapon.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VisualNovel/ThePortopiaSerialMurderCase'': [[spoiler: [[BigBadFriend Yasu]]]] [[BigBadFriend is the culprit]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]] The culprit of the titular case turned out to be the player's assistant Yasuhiko. Players were so shocked that the above line became a Japanese meme which is still referenced in other games and anime (''HaruhiChan'', ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' and ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' being some examples).[[/labelnote]]
* RealTimeStrategy (more than one game): "Im in your base killing your d00ds!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Originated in on-line multiplayer RTS games such as ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'' and ''VideoGame/StarCraftI'', probably when a player retorted with the line while a newbie was scouting to the exclusion of managing his base, and asked where his opponent was. Often used for {{lolcats}} to be in your something doing something.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Scribblenauts}}'':
** '''I FUCKING TRAVELLED THROUGH TIME AND JUMPED ON A DINOSAUR AND USED IT TO KILL MOTHERFUCKING ROBOT ZOMBIES.''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Part of a [[http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=16184727 Neogaf post]] from someone who had played a demo of the game at E3, which ended up being noticed by the developers.[[/labelnote]]
** Steak can be attached to a baby to attract lions. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Line taken from a very interesting [[http://www.esrb.org/ratings/synopsis.jsp?Certificate=26980 ESRB rating]] description.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars''
** If it's evil, you can pretty much guarantee that Sanger...Sanger Zonvolt! WILL '''[[http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=h9GQNKD0-9Y&fmt=18 CLEAVE IT!!!]]'''.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Sanger's CatchPhrase (''Ware wa Sanger...Sanger Zonvolt. Aku wo tatsu tsurugi nari!''; "I am Sanger...Sanger Zonvolt. The Sword That Cleaves Evil!") and used as part of his MemeticBadass credentials.[[/labelnote]]
** Regardless of alignment, Elzam von Branstein (or [[PaperThinDisguise Ratsel Feinschmecker]]) and Trombe! can override [[http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Dwt08NqcZvU pretty much anything]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]Elzam/Ratsel's {{Leitmotif}} "Trombe!" is one of the most popular musical {{Interrupting Meme}}s, surpassed only by the RickRoll. This is a result of a GoodBadBug in his [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration debut game]] where it [[BGMOverride overrides]] other {{Leitmotif}}s, including boss themes.[[/labelnote]]
** AsYouKnow, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gpt_m66XFKQ Real Men]] [[HoYay Ride Each Other]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]Sanger and Ratsel can perform a CombinationAttack with their respective HumongousMecha, where Sanger's Dygenguard mounts Ratsel's Aussenseiter, after it [[TransformingMecha transforms into]] [[MechanicalHorse a horse]].[[/labelnote]]
** '''CHESUTOOOOOOOO!!!!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Despite being a common Japanese {{Kiai}}, it stuck so much on Sanger that it's associated with him.[[/labelnote]]
*** In relation to this and a certain Gundam meme: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DX_IaXs5YQ Ratsel]], he is [[Memes/{{Gundam}} an Ord]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Ratsel's Gespenst Kick quotes is "Universe!", the same CatchPhrase used by Harry Ord, resident CharClone of ''Anime/TurnAGundam''; both characters share the [[Creator/TetsuInada same voice actor]].[[/labelnote]]
** [[{{Moe}} Ibis is Love]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]Ibis Douglas won the 2006 RPG Saimoe Tournament and is generally considered [=SRW's=] {{Moe}} champion, so much so that aside from the phrase, threads revolving around Ibis are referred to as "love threads" on certain {{Imageboard}}s.[[/labelnote]]
** What the hell is [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsK Mist Rex]] doing in the new [=SRW=]!?[[labelnote:Explanation]]Mist is [[TheScrappy largely considered the most reviled protagonist]] in [=SRW=] history; whenever there's a new [=SRW=] announced, expect {{Troll}}s to photoshop some screenshots to make it look like Mist is in that game, just to agitate fans.[[/labelnote]]
** Did they blow the budget on the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Nu Gundam]]?[[labelnote:Explanation]]Developer Banpresto jokingly stated in an interview following the release of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ'' that a significant portion of the budget for the game was invested in the attack animations of the machine. Upon the release of ''Z'' sequel ''Hakai-hen'', fans indeed noticed an AnimationBump, specifically the Nu. What was once a gag by Banpresto has since escalated to fan expectations of the Nu in future appearances pulling off further impressive visuals than the last.[[/labelnote]]
** And how can we forget one of the oldest meme in [=SRW=] by [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Chang Wufei]]? '''"[[GodMars EMPEROR ZUUL]] IS JUSTICE! I WILL DEFEAT ALL THOSE EVIL WHO OPPOSES EMPEROR ZUUL!"''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars64'', Wufei (who is BrainwashedAndCrazy at that time) yells this line, obviously confusing his teammates. Since then, Wufei becomes one of the most memetic characters in [=SRW=]; [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor his habit of switching sides]] to achieve his sense of "justice" doesn't help.[[/labelnote]]
*** In similar manner, Wufei is Nataku's [[Manga/LinebarrelsOfIron Factor]]; also known as Fifth Team Leader of the [[Manga/LinebarrelsOfIron Katou Organization]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL'', Wufei joins the Katou Organization and fights for them at the beginning of the game. He fits in the group so much it's hard to tell if he's not one of them without prior knowledge. The point drives home when the player requires Wufei to convince [[Manga/LinebarrelsOfIron Soubi Nakajima]] in order to recruit him, an act that, by [=SRW=] traditions, is '''always''' done by characters from the same series (in this case, two other pilots from the Katou Organization). Can you tell how Wufei ''is not'' one of them?[[/labelnote]]
** Originating from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' [[spoiler:and returns in the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Second Super Robot Wars Original Generation]]'']] is BiggerBad [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Euzeth Gozzo]]]] and his quote "'''SORE MO WATASHI DA!'''"[[labelnote:Original Japanese text]](それも私だ)[[/labelnote]]. Translated, it means "''[[TheManBehindTheMan That was me as well]]''"[[labelnote:Explanation]]The character claims responsibility for all plots and schemes for the entirety of ''Alpha'' [[spoiler:and ''Original Generation'']]. The reveal in ''Alpha'' is so intense (or memetic) in Japan that players renamed the generic "Anonymous" username on the [[ImageBoards 2ch mecha board /m/]] after this quote. Popularity quickly followed, and as with all memes, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORzH6gqaLko international fans picked this up, too]].[[/labelnote]]
** Even though the MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover betwen the various series in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsUX'' was flawed in eyes of the Japanese fanbase, it still garnered these memes:
*** [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Shinn Asuka]], the pilot of the [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Fafner Mark Destiny]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]Post-''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' Shinn, who lost [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Stellar Louissier and Rey Za Burrel]] by canon, becomes a mentor figure to the ''Fafner'' cast in ''UX'', especially [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Kazuki Makabe]]. Since ''SEED Destiny'' and ''Fafner'' has the same character designer, along with Shinn's SEED ability (which looks awfully akin to the assimilation effect for late-''Fafner'' Kazuki) and his Destiny Gundam, this makes him a perfect Festum buster like the Fafner pilots. It doesn't help that ''all'' events involving his Destiny Gundam (damaged, receiving the repaired Destiny, and revealing his CombinationAttack with [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Lunamaria Hawke]]) in ''UX'' happened on [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Tatsumiyajima]].[[/labelnote]]
*** [[spoiler:[[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Shou(ko) (Ha)zama]], the [[Anime/TheWingsOfRean female Aura Battler]]]].[[note]]If the player fulfills the requirements to reacquire Shouko Hazama, after the sequence where she self-destructs to destroy the Festum in Scenario 13, she'll be brought to [[Anime/AuraBattlerDunbine Byston Well]] (where the cast of ''UX'' are coming back ''from'') instead, and continues to fight for the people there, even being called a "female Aura Battler" (which is a sign of whether she's rescued or not). The kicker? Her name can be broken into that of the above, in line with Shou Zama, the male lead of ''Anime/AuraBattlerDunbine''.[[/note]]
* XBoxOne:
** [=XBox180=] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The speed with which Microsoft dropped its [[{{DRM}} always-online DRM]] and, due to [[BigBrotherIsWatching privacy issues]], the requirement to have a Kinect plugged in. The requirements were met with massive InternetBackdraft and, perhaps more effectively, the {{DRM}} was the subject of a brutal TakeThat from Sony, who were promoting the PlayStation4.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/{{X}}-Universe'' memes are mostly limited to the games' forums. Nevertheless:
** Profitsss. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The word the [[ProudMerchantRace Teladi]] are obsessed with, and say using SssssnakeTalk.[[/labelnote]]
** Praying to [=GoD=]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]"[=GoD=]" is the name given to the games' economics management engine, which among other things deletes underperforming {{N|onPlayerCharacter}}PC space stations. Closely related to RandomNumberGod in effect.[[/labelnote]]
** Briefly, a picture of Bernd Lehahn, one of the developers, at his computer, posted during the announcement of ''VideoGame/XRebirth''. The image on his computer screen started getting Photoshopped into all sorts of things ("this is what Bernd is ''really'' looking at"), including [[RecursiveReality a picture of Bernd at his computer]]. This became a DiscreditedMeme after the people with Photoshop basically ran out of ideas.
** The idea that [[ArtificialStupidity the autopilot is a gerbil]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]Started as a [[http://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=121168 rant by ApricotSlice]] and took on a life of its own after some {{Deadpan Snark|er}}ing by Kitch.[[/labelnote]]

!!Memes still needing formatting:
* [[SegaGenesis Genesis Does What Nintendon't.]] [[note]]Sega's infamous Tagline for the early Sega Genesis ad campaigns[[/note]]
** Blast Processing. [[note]]a marketing buzzword for the Genesis allegedly having a faster processor than the SNES.[[/note]]
** "Bits=Power of Console" [[note]]A notorious misconception started with Sega advertising the Genesis as 16 bit over the 8 bit NES, and was promptly imitated by NEC's {{Turbografx 16}}, AtariJaguar and {{Nintendo 64}} for their marketing campaigns--[[HowVideoGameSpecsWork the idea has long been discredited]], but it still lingers today among newcomers to games and nostalgic fans, thanks to Sega's ambitious marketing of the term in their heydey.[[/note]]
* IS THIS ''[[VideoGame/{{Battletoads}} BATTLETOADS]]''??
** NO IT'S COMBAT AMPHIBIANS.
*** You sure? It looks like Conflict Frogs to me. Passible War Tadpoles. Though it could be Internecine Anurans. You know, the sequel to Pugna Bufonidae?
*** GIMMICKS ARE DUMB, I SHOULD BE BANNED[[labelnote:Explanation]]On the image board /v/, ''Battletoads'' was once so often used as a prank answer to any query that any mention of it was [[FunWithAutocensors filtered]] to that phrase, necessitating the use of the euphemisms mentioned above.[[/labelnote]]
** Also, to this day people still call up Gamestop Locations and asking for info on the upcoming Battletoads game. There is no upcoming Battletoads game. Go to youtube, and you'll find videos of manager's reactions over the phone.
** YOU SEE THOSE TOADS BUSTING OUT OF THAT WALL LIKE THEY DON'T GIVE A FUCK? IT'S LIKE THEY WERE BATTLING OR SOMETHING! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Commentary of a promotional image showing the three toads busting through a wall.[[/labelnote]]
** No, it's Doom 3.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Probably a case of "Ask a stupid question..."[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Croc}}'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GDgE9W0b1w Dantini!]]
* VideoGame/DukeNukem has ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eckoYQqdk28 balls of steel!]]''
** "Blow it out your ass!"
** "[[ChewBubblegum It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum]], [[PreAsskickingOneLiner and I'm all out of gum.]]"
** ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'': "Always bet on the Duke!"
*** '''ALWAYS!'''
*** Release date: [[DevelopmentHell When it's done.]]
*** The game ''itself'' counts as a RunningGag meme, due to the fact that it has taken all but '''[[{{Vaporware}} forever]]''' for the game to be released.
*** "Duke Nukem, Forever Delayed" [[labelnote:Explanation]]When it was announced that the game would be delayed after finally getting a solid, firm release date, the fans immediately jumped on this, resulting in the aformentioned [[{{Pun}} Incredibly Lame Pun]].[[/labelnote]]
*** Conveniently, "Duke Nukem" [[UnfortunateNames sounds like]] "do que nunca" - portuguese for "than never". From this, the "antes tarde Duke Nukem" (a pun on "better late than never") joke is created.
** "Hail to the king, baby!"
* TheGoldenAgeOfVideoGames (note however that there are many variations on these phrases, some of which still appear in new arcade games):
** PRESS START BUTTON/ONE PLAYER ONLY
*** PRESS START BUTTON/ONE OR TWO PLAYERS
** (FIRST) BONUS AT [point threshold]
*** SECOND BONUS AT [later point threshold]
*** AND FOR EVERY [point threshold thereafter]
**** [[Creator/{{Atari}} NEXT BONUS AT [ever increasing point thresholds]]]
** 1(U)P [[labelnote:Explanation]]Although it refers to extra lives today, it was originally used to identify "player 1" (or some variant). The "U" wasn't always used though, resulting in "1P").[[/labelnote]]
** 2(U)P
** HIGH SCORE
** "Miss" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In Japan, this English word refers to losing a life/ship/what have you.[[/labelnote]]
** "Extend" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Refers to getting an extra life. Again, chiefly Japanese usage.[[/labelnote]]
*** NO EXTEND [[labelnote:Explanation]]Typically the name of the "no [[EveryTenThousandPoints point-based extra lives]]" setting. Again, used mainly in Japanese-developed games.[[/labelnote]]
** CONTINUE?
** [[GameOver GAME OVER]]
*** VideoGame/{{Joust}}: THY GAME IS OVER
*** [[VideoGame/MissileCommand THE]] [[VideoGame/{{Contra}} END]]
** INSERT COIN(S)

This continues until there's a group of 5 or fewer digits left to read, for which it reads without a break.[[/labelnote]]

* A simple complaint about a bad pick-up group experience on the ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' message board turned "Go. Hunt. Kill Skuls" into the game's official meme. The boards went wild when then-head developer Statesman used it on the message boards. Then it morphed into a badge earned by defeating 200 members of the Skulls gang. It was incorporated into the official site's backstory for the gang. Most recently when loading screen messages were added to the game, a random message of "Go. Hunt. Kill Skuls" will occasionally appear.

[[labelnote:Explanation]]The famous words spoken by the Mael-Num to the newly-genocidal [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kohr-Ah Black Ur-Quan]] just as they were embarking on their "Eternal Doctrine" (read: genocide). The words piqued their conscience just long enough for their slightly-less genocidal brothers to stop them (though actually this is ancient history by the time the player gets involved). Y'see, the green Ur-Quan weren't ''that'' much better than the black Ur-Quan. Now used as a gamer's in-joke to call out any idea for being too outrageous for consideration.[[/labelnote]]

* The [[HGame eroge]] ''Nursery Rhyme'' (which hasn't been animated) is best known for its opening theme, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neD3Ru5al1w True My Heart]]", and certainly not for any originality -- in fact, it's ''because'' the song is a generic eroge opening theme. This made it the perfect song for {{Fan Vid}}s depicting random {{anime}} that might have an ImprobablyFemaleCast or [[{{Joshikousei}} a large portion of schoolgirls]] as HaremSeries and removing their plots. The meme is commonly called "Kishimen", a {{mondegreen}} of a line in the song that's actually "[[GratuitousEnglish KISS de]]".

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfDragoon:'' SHUT UP. TALKING MAKES YOU DIE.
* The Cheetahmen, the protagonists of one of the games featured in the compilation ''Action 52'', have quite the {{Earworm}} of a theme song. Oddly, despite the fact that ''Action 52'' was an American production, this has become a bigger meme ''[[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff in Japan]]''.

A few of those revolve around Goggalor attacking the orphanage...and are uttered with much Narm. Luckily, it turns out to be the puppy orphanage in the end.[[/labelnote]]

To stop the infection, the regions in the world close their ports upon signs of a pandemic. However, the island nation of Madagascar is very close-happy with their ''one'' seaport, making infecting that island nigh impossible. This led to jokes about Madagascar closing everything at the slightest sign of a new infection.

* Microsoft's E3 2010: Skittles and the dancing guy.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A meme generated from a hilariously bad and cheesy presentation by Microsoft when revealing the Kinect. When the company demoed a Kinect game that lets the player interact with cute baby animals, they had a little girl play the game by interacting with a baby tiger and acted like as if she really was touching and being touched by the animal that she called Skittles.

* ''VideoGame/{{Transformice}}'':

** This bridge looks legit. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Many levels require shamans to create bridges to the cheese. Between weak architectural design, an imperfect physics engine and good old-fashioned trolling, they can't always be expected to work. The meme can be used both straight and sarcastically.[[/labelnote]]
** FUCKING WALLJUMPERS [[labelnote:Explanation]]A glitch in the game allows mice to jump repeatedly from most walls to gain height with enough skill and timing. The developers decided to leave it in.

[[labelnote:Explanation]]A video about the complete history of the Soviet Union sung to the melody of Tetris quickly spread across the internet. The line would constantly reappear throughout the song, and now you can usually expect to find it several times in the comments for any video related to Tetris or Korobeiniki.[[/labelnote]]
* LegoIsland: GREEN RED BRICK, YOU STAY! [[labelnote:Explanation]]On newer computers, the sequence where the Infomaniac asks if you really want to quit the game glitches a lot.

** Thomas the Sheep. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Someone wrote a story about them building a machine designed to suck mobs into an underwater basin and drown them. He caught a Sheep, and it looked at him as if he was saying "How could you?" right before being sucked in. He made a memorial and named it Thomas; he quickly became a prophet to the community. Shortly after, Notch added Cows which are both annoying and had a case of pushing someone into a lava pit. Someone called their god "Mooch", and it quickly became a religious war with Sheep vs. Cows.[[/labelnote]]
** From the game over screen: '''GameOver!''' Score: &e0 [[labelnote:Explanation]]The &e0 part was a botched coding in displaying your score upon death where the &e is supposed to be the code to make the text yellow. This was remedied by the full release of the game, which now has an actual score system.[[/labelnote]]
** [[{{Creepypasta}} Herobrine]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A popular creepypasta claiming that Notch's dead little brother haunts the game as a blank-eyed Steve? clone named Herobrine.[[/labelnote]]

[[labelnote:Explanation]]Buri Hamachi videos are set to a looped segment of a song from the game called "EXEC_HYMME_BATTLESPHERE/.#Saki extracting". A part of the song sounds like the singer is saying "buri hamachi", ''buri'' and ''hamachi'' both being words for the Japanese amberjack. Thus, Buri Hamachi videos involve a dancing character holding a fish. The stripping at the end comes from the "Purging" game mechanic, in which female characters strip to their underwear to power up their magic.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon'': "Bimmy and Jimmy" [[labelnote:Explanation]]"Bimmy" is a typo that appears in the NES version of ''Double Dragon III'' in the opening prologue of the 2-Player mode.

** "Sidetalking" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The original model N-Gage phones had their speakers on the edge of the phone, supposedly to prevent people from smearing the game screen by holding it against their face.

** "[[DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck You did it, Avatar! When you restored the final shrine, I was given my life back!]]"
* ''VideoGame/MadWorld'': "Awesome [[GagBoobs rack on her though!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]This is Howard "Buckshot" Holms' reaction to the Elise before the faceoff between her and Jack. In fact it's the ''only'' comment he has on her.[[/labelnote]]
** [[PhraseCatcher "Aw, true that."]]

[[labelnote:Explanation]]One of the many more-or-less nonsensical speeches delivered by the mysterious, shouting man seen in cutscenes between levels.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaV'': Are you even -trying- to enjoy the game?[[labelnote:Explanation]]The quote comes from IF Prez. Whenever the player finishes a chapter, there will be a grading score similar to how reviewers grade video games. This is what he says whenever you fail to complete a lot of [[SideQuest Quests]] in the game. Oh and trust us, [[NintendoHard they're hard.]][[/labelnote]]

** Xbox, go home you're drunk.[[labelnote:Explanation]]The Xbox One can be controlled by vocal commands, which includes features like turning the console off, going to the home menu with "Xbox, go home", etc. Thanks to the bad display of the Xbox One, many people quickly made fun of the vocal command feature. Yes, people tell nonhumans to go home for being "drunk".[[/labelnote]]
** The Xbone.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A fan nickname given by combining "Xbox" and "One", but it can also mean how boned the console is due to the bad PR by Microsoft. Recently ascended with [[http://www.joystiq.com/2013/09/12/microsoft-buys-xbone-com/ a domain name purchase]].[[/labelnote]]
** Xbox Done. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A fan nickname that surfaced after their dreadful presentation at E3 2013, since the general consensus is that the Xbox One doesn't seems to have a leg to stand on with the high price and draconian DRM policies.[[/labelnote]]
** Xbox 180. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The inevitable nickname given to the Xbox One after Microsoft completely rescinded the DRM policies that were giving the console its awful reputation.[[/labelnote]]
** "Why's it called the Xbox One? Because Microsoft took [[{{Xbox360}} 359 steps back]]."
** Also, there are various jokes about the console looking like a VCR, such as showing mock pictures of upcoming games in a VHS format.
** Various gifs pasting "Sony" (and sometimes "Nintendo" as well) over someone beating up or destroying someone or something with "Microsoft" pasted over it. Often described as as a "Summary of E3 [2013]" [[labelnote:Explanation]] Sony's E3 presentation went over extremely well, in contrast with Microsoft's less than stellar one.[[/labelnote]]
** [=#dealwithit=] [[labelnote:Explanation]][[StarDerailingRole Former]] Microsoft creative director Adam Orth's response to rumours of the next Xbox demanding a constant internet connection.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' is [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 The Medic]]'s favorite game. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In "Meet the Medic", he's shown to keep pigeons which are just as enthusiastic about gore as he is.[[/labelnote]]
** ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' is Nikola Tesla's favorite game. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Tesla wrote love letters for a pigeon that roosted near his flat.[[/labelnote]]
** For a while, due to a translation error accidentally saying Dr. Shuu had hands, there was a minor meme in which Shuu would be drawn or photomanipulated as a bird with human arms and hands sticking out of his body.
** Still a better [[{{Pun}} dove]] story than ''Twilight''.
* ''SWAT 4''
** [[MostAnnoyingSound You're in my way, sir. Need you to move, sir. Excuse me, sir...]]
** [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment You Fool!]]
* ''VideoGame/CaptainAmericaAndTheAvengers'': "You can't escape!" "YOU will be the one escaping!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A pre-fight conversation between the Avengers and Whirlwind.[[/labelnote]]
* Creator/ZapDramatic[='=]s games:
** Angie catching a pencil in episode 5 of ''Ambition'', accompanied by a drum roll.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhiElwYQ9sg Helen's scream]] from the same episode, as well as the face she makes while doing said scream.
** Yale's smile, too. Ever since WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}} gave it a ColbertBump, Website/YouTube avatars depicting Yale smiling have become increasingly common, especially among the Retsupurae fanbase.
** The pastries in episode 9, due to the unusual focus on them during the marriage counseling session.
-->'''Helen''': Have a pastry.\\
'''Yale''': Mmmm. Helen makes the most [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness sumptuous]] pastries.
** [[EasilyForgiven Hey, Helen, I got you a diamond necklace...]]
** Duke's declaration in Episode 10 that he is a [[spoiler: terrorist]] has caused people to comment on how interesting Duke's life must be. It's become a meme that Duke is a detective by day, a marriage counselor by evening, and a [[spoiler: terrorist]] by night.
*** Additionally, "because [I'm/he's/she's/it's] a [[spoiler:terrorist]]" seems to be becoming the Retsupurae fanbase's answer to AWizardDidIt. This one is arguably the biggest meme the games have produced so far, to the point that some people have already begun to see it as an OverusedRunningGag.
** Ted's rendition of "Amazing Grace."
** Ever since Retsupurae riffed on "Sir Basil Pike Public School," it's common to make jokes about Ted's actions in ''Ambition'' based on his role as a math teacher in that game. Examples include:
-->"I hear Mr. Hartrup's class really blows."
-->"Really? I've heard it's a blast!"
-->"He does have a rather short fuse."
-->"All his lesson plans tend to go out the window."
** "[insert command here], or I'll blow us all to Hell!"
** "Well, I hope you're jamming with whole-wheat bread."
** A minor one is "I know that _______________________, because my bike has a unique bell."
* ''VideoGame/{{HELLSINKER}}'':
** AN AWESOME PRAYER IS CONFLICT WITH US -- KEEP YOUR DIGNITY[[labelnote:explanation]]The BossWarningSiren.[[/labelnote]]
** YOU GOT INSANITY[[labelnote:explanation]]An excerpt from the NonstandardGameOver resulting from timing out the Segment 7 boss with only one life left. The full text reads: "SPIRIT OVERLOAD. YOU GOT INSANITY. YOU MUST RESHAPE ONESELF FOR ONCOMING ASPIRANTS." The boss's final attack involves transferring its memories to the player character, [[MindRape driving them insane]] (with the heavy implication that the player is transofrmed into a Prayer themselves).[[/labelnote]]
** The game's [[MindScrew barely-comprehensible plot]] and [[CallAHitPointASmeerp extensive use of proprietary terminology]] have become memes in and of themselves.
* The [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/pumkin Hungry Pumkin]] [sic] -- from an edutainment MinigameGame teaching basic English, this specific minigame involves a Pumpkin character ordering various foods and eating them whole -- including entire glasses and the tubs that fries come in. Maybe it's the phrases he says ("I'M VERY HUNGRY!"), the rude behavior ("NO! I DON'T WANT THAT!" in addition to leaving the restaurant ''[[FridgeLogic without paying]]''), [[UncannyValley the appearance of the Pum(p)kin]], or all of the above, but this has gotten a small following on the web. Particularly on WebAnimation/YouTubePoop[=s=].
* Wiki/TVTropes: The Review.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Comes from Polygon's [[http://www.polygon.com/a/ps4-review review]] of the PlayStation4, which had several flashy graphical representations of the unit for no real reason. Other news sites started mutating it [[http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/11/13/pc-the-review/ pretty quickly]] after it was published.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/JudgementSilversword'' and its spinoff ''Cardinal Sins'':
** [[BossWarningSiren WARNING - HERE COMES THE JUDGE!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Notably, "HERE COMES THE JUDGE" is lifted straight out of ''Series/RowanAndMartinsLaughIn''.[[/labelnote]]
** [[WhatTheHellPlayer NO!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]In the Mercury stage of ''Cardinal Sins'', the player must collect OneUp items. If these extra lives are shot too many times, they explode and a "NO!" message pops up.[[/labelnote]]
* "Where did ''you'' learn to fly?"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Used repeatedly by the floating head AI Skylar from ''Cybermorph'' when your spaceship bumps into a mountain. Popularized by WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/StarFox'': [[DoABarrelRoll Do a barrel roll!]]
* ''VideoGame/CaptainNovolin'', a diabetes-themed video game:
** The creepy doctors.[[labelnote:Explanation]]In between levels, Captain Novolin thinks of his doctors, who inform him of various guidelines he must follow. Their UncannyValley appearances pushed them straight into meme territory.[[/labelnote]]
** "Hello, [name]! I have diabetes. Is there anything I need to know before [verb]ing this [noun]?"[[labelnote:Explanation]]In the sixth level, the Captain encounters a ranger, and ''immediately'' tells him he has diabetes - a particularly {{narm}}y exchange.[[/labelnote]]
** "Check you feet".[[labelnote:Explanation]]Right after the above exchange, the game promptly tells you to [[WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma check you feet]] for blisters and sores.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'':
** "BOOKER, CATCH!"
** "X, will X, have X-ed."
** "The bird?" "Or the cage?"
** WAIT A MINUTE, THAT CARD!
** On a non-verbal example, Booker eating food he finds in trash cans.
* ''[[VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors Zero]] [[VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward Escape]]'':
** "This is a doomed timeline." (Or variations of that sentence.)[[labelnote:Explanation]]The series' plot involves travelling to many alternate universes in order to create an 'optimal' timeline where the protagonists are able to accomplish their goals. (Usually, these other universes are [[DownerEnding ill-fated]].) When the third game was put on hiatus, many fans declared that this meant ours was a useless timeline, and expressed their desire to leave for a better one.[[/labelnote]]
* ShinMegamiTenseiNocturne: "Featuring Dante from the DevilMayCry Series." [[labelnote:Explanation]]While the Japanese and American versions of the game were close-ups on the [[PlayerCharacter Demi-Fiend]], the European cover zooms out from the character to show [[TheCameo Dante]] on the background and to put this very message on the cover, in one quite blatant example of WolverinePublicity. The message became an exploitable and was plastered on almost every fake videogame cover under the sun.[[/labelnote]]
* ''Stay Tooned'' has ShowWithinAShow "Whinefeld," a parody of ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' that consists of animated versions of Jerry, George, and Kramer saying "meh," "uuh," "uh huh," and such. It has gone on to become a huge thing on Youtube, appearing in a few Youtube Poops and the original clip having several remixes (most of them, however, appear to have been deleted for copyright reasons).
* ''VideoGame/LANoire''. For a game with so much dialogue, it's no surprise that ''something'' would mutate sooner or later.
** "Yeah, let's change the subject, '''YOU [[YiddishAsASecondLanguage GOY]] [[PrecisionFStrike MOTHERFUCKER!]]''' How about baseball?!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]This is uttered by the main suspect in your very first interrogation, a tutorial. So prepare to hear this a lot.[[/labelnote]]
** "You disappoint me, Phelps. *{{Beat}}* '''[[MoodWhiplash GET BACK IN THERE AND RAISE SOME LUMPS BOY! I need a confession!]]'''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]DaChief contributing to the ButThouMust-factor of the aforementioned tutorial.[[/labelnote]]
** "OVER THE MOON BOYS!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]DaChief is very pleased with your work.[[/labelnote]]
** "Circumstantial." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Whenever Phelps gets to inspect a highly suspicious piece of junk on a crime scene. [[WelcomeToCorneria Which is often.]][[/labelnote]]
** "You stomped her! You stomped her because she was a drunken whore and she treated you like '''shit!'''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]That one time when Phelps interrogates the husband of a murdered woman, get the option to call him on a possible lie, and Phelps simply loses his shit out of the blue. And he'd be wrong, in any case.[[/labelnote]]
*** "Looks like I was mistaken."/"Sorry. Sometimes you have to shake the tree to see what falls out." [[labelnote:Explanation]]When you have Phelps pussy out of his decision.[[/labelnote]]
* Posting a female video character "in honor of E3 and extraordinary female video game characters" [[labelnote:Explanation]]After Ubisoft declared that Assassin's Creed: Unity won't have female characters in multiplayer because "Girls are tough to create", fans have posted pictures of female video characters in retaliation[[/labelnote]].
* [[VideoGame/ZombiesAteMyNeighbors THEY CAME TO EARTH FOR ONE THING]] [[MarsNeedsWomen LEVEL 12- MARS NEEDS CHEERLEADERS.]][[labelnote:Explanation]] Zombies Ate My Neighbors seems to have a thing for cheerleaders in general..[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/{{Destiny}} That wizard came from the moon.]][[labelnote:Explanation]] A line from Destiny spoken by Creator/PeterDinklage completely phoning it in. Bungie even put it on a T-shirt.[[/labelnote]]
