"I am hilarious and you will quote
everything I say."
You know this person. We all do. Ohhh yes. Even though you haven't even watched the show, even if you have no idea which video game they're from, you know them and have every one of their lines memorized. Their every word has a place in lulzy eternity.
This person — nay, this deity
of popular culture, can come in many forms, but regardless of form, He or She is known as a Fountain of Memes
Be it due to Narm Charm
, Large Ham
-ness, or simply due to their own glorious Badassery
, every line this sacred being spouts is an instant Memetic Mutation
, to be repeated by the Internet-savvy throughout the ages.
For more information regarding these characters' holy exploits, see Memetic Badass
, Memetic Sex God
, and similar pages. See also Youtube Poop
for practical applications of their blessed dictions.
When in doubt about examples, keep in mind the Rule of Three
. There's no specific cutoff point for awesomeness
, but three Memetic Mutations
is generally a good baseline. It is also recommended, though not required, that you give us a sample of the character's works, so we too may revel in their awesomeness.
The name is a pun on the Fountain of Dreams from the Kirby

Anime & Manga
- Kamina of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Nearly everything he says is a meme. And putting his epic sunglasses on anyone (or anything) makes them instantly badass. WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK HE IS?!
- Hell, he's even a Fountain of Memes in-verse. His Team Gurren symbol, his Catch Phrases, his glasses, his speeches, his very methods of speaking and posing are all adopted by the human species as the very pinnacle of manliness, to the point that they named the first city on the surface Kamina City.
- JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has Dio Brando and his infamous Finishing Move:
- From Part 1, Speedwagon's Large Ham tendencies also produced a number of memes. For example, the narration stating "Even Speedwagon is afraid!" superimposed over Speedwagon's terrified face, or Speedwagon narrating himself leaving the scene with "Speedwagon withdraws coolly." The anime has only increased his popularity, due to his voice actor hamming it up with the best of them.
- Osaka from Azumanga Daioh. So many scenes featuring her have become memetic; there are at least three YTMND memes involving her. And then there's the Macintosh ad parody from AMV Hell. And none of those are even actual lines of dialog; though she's got a fair number of those as well, she's far more well-known for her Crowning Moments of Funny, up to and including her knife-Yukari scene.
- Hellsing: Jan Valentine.
- Haruhi Suzumiya: Tsuruya, nyoro~n.... :3
- Everyone in Code Geass.
- Fullmetal Alchemist features Roy Mustang, who loves dogs and wants to make all female officers be required to wear... TINY MINISKIRTS!
- These sparkles have been in the Armstrong family for generations!
- Dragon Ball Z. Vegeta. Seriously, practically ANYTHING Dub!Vegeta says, there is a meme for it, to over 9000 levels. Indeed, one person created an entire YouTube account solely to organise all of Vegeta's meme-worthy moments, and there are well over a thousand of the things. Can't be bothered to Archive Binge? Well SAD FOR YOOOOOOUUUUUUUU!!
- Rozen Maiden: The freakin' Goddess of Memes, Suiseiseki — NO! Her name is DESU! Shame on you, desu~!
- One Piece has Roronoa Zoro's famous "Nothing Happened" scene at the end of the Thriller Bark arc. Luffy's had his own for a while, too.◊
- Anything involving Gekko Moriah is basically meme fuel. KISHISHISHISHI
- Aizen from Bleach, nearly everything he says has meme potential.
- Anything Uchiha related in Naruto, most notably any Not So Stoic facial expression done by Sasuke or Itachi.
- Death Note has Light Yagami, who will be the GOD OF THE NEW WORLD as he takes a potato chip AND EATS IT!!! He KNEW IT! Just as Planned.
- Just about anyone from Neon Genesis Evangelion, but especially Gendo. Kaworu is also popular for memes.
- Kyubey of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, due to his narrow range of facial expressions, cute and fuzzy appearance, stalkerish behavior, and downright creepiness. Memes range from posting ASCII Art of his face wherever possible to anthropomorphizing him as a nubile young girl or bishounen with cat ears to depicting him pestering Magical Girls from other canons to finding new and creative ways to kill him and depicting him molesting the protagonist. In fact, the memes seem to be engaged in a power struggle.
- Cilan from Pokémon has been spouting these like crazy: He whips his Stunfisk back and forth; he's a rapist; he eats his Pokemon; "It's Tasting Time" and "It's Lunch Time;" he's FABULOUS~; screams like a girl...
- Mamoru Miyano is a metaexample since not only does he voice the above Cilan and Yagami Light but is also a Mad Scientist who speaks English and transform into a Ginga Bishonen when IT'S A PINCH! He'd also would like to tell you that he is Gundam.
- The incomparable Enoby Draknes Dimenta Rave Way (Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way), "goff" protagonist of My Immortal.
- Ghostbusters was the original "T-shirt film", with tons of memes that appeared on T-shirts in the mid-80's.
- The Alien films spawned a lot of memes, mostly from Aliens including, "Get away from her you BITCH!!," "We're on an express elevator to Hell — going down!," "Game over, man. Game over!," and "Not bad for a human."
- Samuel L. Jackson. If he's in it, he'll not only create a few memes, but also a Memetic Badass in the process. And that certain scene in Pulp Fiction is a meme from start to finish.
- The 1980 comedy movie Caddyshack is arguably one of the best examples of this, its two most famous examples probably this rather famous reaction gif◊, and the 'So I got that goin' for me, which is nice'◊ meme. That said, basically anything Bill Murray or Rodney Dangerfield says, or even does, is great meme fodder.
- 300: Leonidas' "THIS! IS! SPARTAAAA!" and "Tonight we dine in HELL!", the former being a former Trope Namer.
- Scarface, aka Tony Montana: "Say Hello to my little friend!"
- Dr. Evil of Austin Powers could buy this trope if he had *pinky raise*... one miiiillion dollars!
- Seriously, someone throw him a frickn' bone here!
- Bruce Campbell has spawned more than a few. Notably, "This Is My Boomstick!" from Army of Darkness is a classic meme of geekdom.
- Humphrey Bogart, especially in Casablanca. Indeed, lines like "Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine." and "Here's lookin' at you kid." are so iconic most people who've heard of them have no idea of any context.
- Tropic Thunder: Kirk Lazarus, LEAD FARMER, MOTHERFUCKER! (Never go full retard.)

- Mel Brooks has made a career out of memes, with nearly all of his films containing at least a handful.
- Jim Carrey is another who has made a career full of memes.
- The Joker in The Dark Knight, as played by Heath Ledger, to the point that every line he says in that film is a meme. Heath Ledger's script in that movie was one big meme. Considering that the Nolan-verse Joker has been theorized to be a personification of lulz itself, this may not be so surprising.
- The Dark Knight Rises: And now Bane's managed to follow in his footsteps and spawn a bunch of memes.
- Batman: Jack Nicholson's Joker was even more quoted, even a Trope Namer (Where Does He Get All Those Wonderful Toys?). This town needs an enema.
- Monty Python films are filled to the brim with memes of all kinds, with Monty Python and the Holy Grail in particular quoted and repeated so frequently that it has become a meme itself to mock people who quote it.

- Dory from Finding Nemo. Just keep swimming.
- Peeta Mellark from The Hunger Games has spawned at least three different memes for whatever reason, the most popular being Advice Peeta.

- O hai, TV Tropes! Everybody remembers Johnny from The Room, huh?
- Chris-R doesn't have five fucking minutes.

- Papa Lazarou only appeared on three episodes of The League of Gentlemen, and he has reached this status. Isn't that right, DAAAAAAAAAAVE?
- The Ultimate Warrior. Just about any sentence that comes out of his mouth (provided you can understand it).
- Doctor Who has the one, the only, the Doctor, who offers people jelly babies while wearing a vegetable, will Reverse the Polarity of the neutron flow and declare it "Fantastic!" even if it's just a pile of rocks (because, "Look! Rocks!"), and while bow ties and enormous scarfs are cool, pears are absolutely rubbish. And do shut up, K9.
- The Big Bang Theory: Sheldon Cooper.
- Conan O'Brien thinks this trope LOOKS GOOOOD!
- Bill O'Reilly's statement on tides resulted in two memes back to back, with a Colbert Report bit on the matter resulting in a third meme. You can't explain that.

- In commentary tracks on Seinfeld, Larry Charles said he took inspiration for the stern detectives in "The Library" and "The Trip" from Jack Webb as he was pretty much the granddaddy of that kind-of police speak.
- Lady Gaga. Has she had a single that wasn't subject to rampant acapella covers / font-related parodies / math jokes?
- David Bowie. The Area, anyone? When he's not trying to take over the world, that is. Maybe it's just that sexy central London accent.

- Jessica Simpson: Most famously, "Is this chicken or fish?"
- Yo, Taylor Swift, I'm really happy for you and Imma let you finish, but Kanye West had the best memes of all time!

- Rebecca Black.
- It only took Psy one video ("Gangnam Style") to become this.
Politicans with "colorful" personalities, tendencies to use malapropisms
, and cases of foot-in-mouth syndrome
are often meme fountains.
- Joe Biden, Vice President of the United States, whose title is frequently prefaced with "gaffe-prone." Possibly the only man to call something "a bunch of malarkey" on national television in decades.
- A non-gaffe example would be his coining of the phrase "noun, verb, 9/11," during a moment of snark at Rudy Giuliani.
- George W. Bush, what with his famous "Bushisms" and his unusual friendliness toward foreign leaders ("looking into Vladimir Putin's soul" at his Texas ranch and giving Angela Merkel a shoulder massage at a NATO summit, for instance).
- Before Dubya, there was Dan Quayle. Best known for "correcting" a student's already-correct spelling of the word "potato" by suggesting he add the letter E on the end.
- Once, he said that Republicans like him, "understand the importance of bondage between a mother and child."
- Then there was, "what a waste it is to loose one's mind or not to have a mind is being very wasteful."
- Oh, and for context, he said this in 1988: "Millions of innocent people lost their lives because of the bigotry and Hitlerism that permeated Germany and other parts of the world. It was an obscene period in our nation's history... no, not our nation's... but in World War II. I mean, we, we all lived in this century—I didn't live in this century—but in this century's history... it is a point of history that this nation—our nation—understands. We did not have, matter of fact, we fought Hitlerism."
- There was also his moment in the 1988 Vice presidential debate where he compared himself to John F. Kennedy:
Dan Quayle: Three times that I've had this question — and I will try to answer it again for you, as clearly as I can, because the question you're asking is, "What kind of qualifications does Dan Quayle have to be president," "What kind of qualifications do I have," and "What would I do in this kind of a situation?" And what would I do in this situation? [...] I have far more experience than many others that sought the office of vice president of this country. I have as much experience in the Congress as Jack Kennedy did when he sought the presidency. I will be prepared to deal with the people in the Bush administration, if that unfortunate event would ever occur.
Lloyd Bentsen: Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy.
- Silvio Berlusconi, whose insensitivity, corruption, love of orgies, and persistence in the pursuit of power are the source of incessant joking in Italy and abroad.
- Hugo Chavez. Look up the Venezuela entries on our politics memes page—it's all him. Of course, the man had the habit of making long televised speeches to the nation at a whim, on top of his weekly six-hour talk show.
- In The Sixties and The Seventies, William Safire—later known as the resident language policeman at The New York Times—was a speechwriter for Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew (among others), and penned some of the most famous political memes of the era (e.g. "nattering nabobs of negativism" for Nixon's opponents).
- Unsurprisingly, Canadian Prime Minister and Bunny-Ears Lawyer-in-Chief Pierre Trudeau generated innumerable memes in his day, from "Just watch me" to pirouetting behind the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
- One of the most famous political memes (and one of the most famous memes period in the pre-Internet age) came from a debate between Democratic Presidential hopefuls Walter Mondale and Gary Hart in the early 80s (when they were vying to ultimately go against Reagan in the general elections) where Mondale accused Hart of being empty on substance by asking "where's the beef?" The phrase was co-opted from a popular Wendy's advertising campaign of the time, but Mondale's use is still widely recognized as the Trope Codifier.
- As far as bizarre quotations go, Boyle Roche was easily the 18th-century's George W. Bush. With quotes like "Half the lies our opponents tell us are not true" and "I told you to make one longer than the other, and instead you made one shorter than the other," he soon became more widely known for quotes like these than any of his political work—he was responsible for the term "Irish bull" to refer to such a quote, as he was a member of Ireland's parliament when most of his famous quotes happened.
- Former professional wrestler Batista became this in the eyes of Smart Marks following his Badass Decay. Aside from his botching, he had a tendency to stumble over words which led to this status.
- CM Punk. The sheer amount of memes this man has graced us is amazing.
- Before CM Punk, there was The Rock:
- "FINALLY The Rock has come back to [geographic location]!"
- "Know your role, and shut your mouth!"
- "I'm gonna slap that sumbitch sideways and stick it right up your candy ass!"
- If ya SA-MELLLLLLLL...!"
- The great-grandaddy of sports meme generation has to be Yogi Berra, who gave us such gems as "It ain't over until it's over", "Nobody goes there any more, it's too crowded", and "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." Also, "It ain't over until the fat lady sings." And, famously, "I never said most of the things I said."
- For those who do not understand Yogi-ese, some explanation my be required:
- Ilya Bryzgalov of the Philadelphia Flyers seems to be on his way to this after his appearances in NHL 24/7. "The solar system...it's so humongous big" and his meditations on the similarities between his Siberian Husky and a hot blonde in particular are experiencing Memetic Mutation.
- "Why you heff to be mad?"
- The World Cup can reach this even for people that don't care about The Beautiful Game. At least one meme preceded the internet (1986: Diego Maradona punches the ball into the goal and the referee accepts; Maradona's response was "I made the goal with my head and the hand of God").
- Captain Falcon says "HYESZ!" to being shown some moves. "FALCAWN PAWNCH!"
- Perhaps the enigmatic writing style that may have been attributed to the website's translator of the series' official site can also be considered a Fountain of Memes? You have no time to ponder such questions, as Link has just grabbed the meme ball!
- Solid Snake, of Metal Gear Solid fame has appeared in the series as of Brawl. Since that series is also a Fountain of Memes... "Mei-Ling! Samus took her clothes off!"
- Speaking of Metal Gear, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance introduced a certain Senator Armstrong that instantly became this in spite of only appearing at the end. Nanomachines, son!
- The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword: Demon Lord Ghirahim (aka Debbie) feels "Furious! Outraged! Sick with anger!" that mere mortals mention his name to mock it... but having been mentioned at all positively fills his heart with rainbows!
- Super Mario Bros.:
- Mario in the CD-i Hotel Mario game is well known for, among other things, proudly proclaiming that All toastas toast toast and looking about 300 pounds overweight, leading to the nickname "Fat Mario". It has more memes:
Nice of the Princess to invite us over for a picnic, Gay Luigi?
Luigi: I hope she made lotsa spaghetti!
Luigi: Did you bring a light?
Mario: Hey, you! Get offa my cloud!
- Star Fox: Peppy Hare would like you to Do a Barrel Roll! Additionally, Falco would like to inform you that he's on your side, Einstein! But Wolf can't let them do that.
- Taken Up to Eleven. Every single line is a meme, referencing any besides the well known ones can still derail a topic on a forum into a reference battle.
- Touhou is pretty much made of this and Self-Fanservice.
- Even amongst Touhou characters, Cirno surpasses them all in sheer meme density. She is, after all, the Strongest.
- Final Fantasy V brings us GILGAMESH (the caps are required), who would become the Breakout Character of the series appearing in many games, each time as a Large Ham Blood Knight who promised epic hilarity.
"This is far from the strongest of swords!"
"I'd say you've been hitting the oxyale a bit hard!"
"For Gilgamesh...it's morphing time
- Kefka of Final Fantasy VI, particularly as he's arguably the series's best argument for Woolseyisms. Even his trademark Evil Laugh is memetic.
- Vaan of Final Fantasy XII is an interesting case — Western fans hate him, but a particular sidequest where he has to spread word of the supposedly dead Basch's survival to draw attention from people, has caused every line he shouts during said quest to go memetic.
"I'm Captain Basch fon Ronsenburg of Dalmasca!"
"Don't listen to Ondore's lies!"
- Exdeath, the Big Bad of Final Fantasy V, wasn't particularly popular or memetic in his original game. Then Dissidia: Final Fantasy came out, and his Mondegreen lines, both in Japanese and English versions, combined with his hamminess and obsession with the Void, catapulted him to internet stardom. He became so popular that the prequel Dissidia 012 made him even hammier and had other characters mock his Void obsession.
"GET THE FRUIT!"
"Tasty arrow...is yummeh!"
- "Attention, all yoctograms! (It's x 2) DIE!" You aren't forgetting Sho Minamimoto, are you? So zetta slow!
- Dudley from Street Fighter III. Keeping it classy since '97. Do the words "Let's fight... like gentlemen." mean anything to you?
- Guile tells you to Go Home And Be A Family Man, because his theme goes with everything, as a proof, he does Flash Kick FADC into Shades!
- Fighting game pro IFC Yipes has a whole stable of memes associated with him. He's best known for screaming "IT'S MAHVEL, BAYBEE!" along with other memorable phrases during matches.
- This even gets lampshaded on Cross Counter Live when Yipes is commentating on his match against Fanatiq in UMvC3: "Are these descriptions going on in your head when you're playing the match?"
- Genji: Days of the Blade, though not the game itself, but its E3 presentation. "Story is based on Japanese history and battles which took... actually took place in ancient Japan." "So here's this Giant Enemy Crab..." (This shortly after saying the battles were historical!) "Attack Its Weak Point For Massive Damage!"
- The PSX era of the Mega Man (Classic) franchise sure has some infamous voice acting. After all, in Mega Man 8 Roll has a deeper voice than Mega Man, Dr. Light sounds like Elmer Fudd, and Mega Man pronounces the "w" in sword.
- We can't forget Mega Man X4 with Zero's infamous line. "No, this can't be happening! There's no reason for me to go on! W-What am I fighting foooOOOOORAGH!"
- Terry Bogard. Everything he says is subjected to this, to the point of meta-humor.
- Albert Wesker from Resident Evil. especially in RE5. DC Douglas' performance has a lot to do with it.
- Anything Flint does or says in Mother 3 is considered Badass due to looking like Chuck Norris.
- Fallout 3 - when the climax of the game has you besieging the enemy encampment with a Humongous Mecha shouting Patriotic Fervor Badass Boasts and throwing explosives and firing lasers to deliver a Curb-Stomp Battle to dozens of enemies, no wonder fans love him. Meet Liberty Prime.

"I am on the road crew. This is my stop sign."
"What is the purpose of the goggles?"
- Pretty much almost every single line in The Legend of Zelda CDi Games is a meme, but especially King Harkinian's. Here are some meme lines:

King Harkinian: "Enough! My ship sails in the morning! I wonder what's for dinner!
Gwoman: "Squadallah! We are off!"
Merchant: "Lamp oil? Rope? Bombs? You want it? It's yours, my friend! As long as you have enough rupees!"

Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am?! I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I'm going to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!
- "Burning people! He says what we're all thinking!"
- The Space Core wants you to know it's in space.

- Reggie "The Regginator" Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, is well-known amongst Nintendo fans for his many meme-worthy phrases.
"My name is Reggie. I'm about kicking ass, I'm about taking names, and we're about making games!
"What's wrong with you?"
"I feel like a purple Pikmin."
Zombie Reggie, from E3 2012 when he tested a feature from ZombiU
which made your picture into a zombie. Phrases said during this include "I'm hungry now." and "I like French food."

- And has become this outside the comic as well.

- The Nostalgia Critic has spawned several in his short time of internet fandom; "A-Chuck Norris!" and "I was FROZEN today!" are among his more popular. Creator Backlash strikes though, and Doug really doesn't like this reputation, calling the "bat credit card" the worst part of his job, and once asking for actual questions at a Q & A instead of meme requests getting shouted at him.
- This doesn't stop him from trying to create more memes since his revival, such as Platypus Bunny or Colm Wilkinson's Home.
- The Nostalgia Chick has quite a few of her own. She was overjoyed when Big Lipped Alligator Moment became a trope.
- Atop the Fourth Wall: LINKARA! He is a man! *PUNCH*
- Homestar Runner: Strong Bad has unleashed many memes upon the world, including Trope Namers on This Very Wiki such as Your Head A Splode, You Gotta Have Blue Hair, and You Can't Get Ye Flask. However, no one has yet discovered how he manages to type with boxing gloves on.
- Homsar was raised by a cup of coffee. AaAaAaAaA!
