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 NarmCharm, LargeHam-ness, or simply due to their own glorious badassery, every line this sacred being spouts is an instant MemeticMutation, to be repeated by the Internet-savvy throughout the ages.

For more information regarding these characters' holy exploits, see MemeticBadass and similar pages. See also WebAnimation/YoutubePoop for practical applications of their blessed dictions.

When in doubt about examples, keep in mind the RuleOfThree. There's no specific cutoff point for [[MomentOfAwesome awesomeness]], but three {{Memetic Mutation}}s 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 [[TropeNamer pun on the Fountain of Dreams]] from the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series.

!![[Memes/SuperSmashBros Show me ya' examples:]]


* Isaiah Mustafa, better known as Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike.
* [[Creator/TerryCrews TERRY CREWS]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLmMh4DYQC4 IS SO POWERFUL HE SELLS STUFF IN OTHER PEOPLE'S COMMERCIALS!!!!!]]
** And then the two went ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_hWeN249fs head to head]].''
* Advertising/TheMostInterestingManInTheWorld (of the Dos Equis commercials)
* Creator/VinceOffer, A.K.A. the [=ShamWow/SlapChop=] guy. "You're gonna' love my nuts!"

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Kamina of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Nearly everything he says is a meme. And putting his [[CoolShades epic sunglasses]] on anyone (or any''thing'') makes them instantly badass. '''WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK HE IS?!'''
** Hell, he's even a Fountain of Memes ''in-universe''. His Team Gurren symbol, his {{Catch Phrase}}s, his glasses, his [[InTheNameOfTheMoon speeches]], his very methods of speaking and posing are all adopted by the human species as [[RatedMForManly the very pinnacle of manliness]], to the point that they named the first city on the surface Kamina City.
* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has Dio Brando and his infamous FinishingMove:
-->[[FlechetteStorm TOKI WO TOMARE!]] [[{{Kiai}} WRYYYYYYYYYY!!]]
** Many of Dio's quotes from Creator/DavidProduction adaptation became iconic thanks to over-the-top performance of Creator/TakehitoKoyasu. Probably the most famous ones are "ROAD ROLLER DA!", as well as [[MotorMouth rapid-fire]] "MUDAMUDA" sequence, both of which can be seen [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIaqZh_gGz4 here]].
** From Part 1, Speedwagon's LargeHam 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.
** Anything and everything done by Joseph Joestar in his various appearances. While he gets plenty of memorably memetic lines in ''Battle Tendency'' ("NIGERUNDA YOOOO, SMOKEEEEY!" "Your next line will be...") he arguably becomes even more comically memetic by the time of ''Stardust Crusaders'' ("HOOOLY SHIIIT!" "SONODABEEEECH!").
* Osaka from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh''. So many scenes featuring her have become memetic; there are [[http://wiki.ytmnd.com/Osaka at least three YTMND memes]] involving her. And then there's the Macintosh ad parody from WebVideo/AMVHell. 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 [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Crowning Moments of Funny]], up to and including her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37mPoKQijj8 knife-Yukari scene]].
* ''{{Manga/Hellsing}}'': Jan [[SirSwearsALot Valentine.]]
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'': Tsuruya, nyoro~n.... :3
** Haruhi herself too.
%%* ''Everyone'' in ''Anime/CodeGeass''.
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' 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!
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. Vegeta. Seriously, practically ANYTHING Dub!Vegeta says, there is a meme for it, to [[OverNineThousand over 9000]] levels. Indeed, one person created an [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ImmaVegeta 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 ArchiveBinge? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZq3An7Tf_w Well SAD FOR YOOOOOOUUUUUUUU!!]]
** This came about specifically because of Dub!Vegeta randomly stretching out his words due to the length of the Japanese line. However, this is not to say that he does not have plenty of unrelated memes as well.
* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'':
** Zamasu, [[spoiler:all versions of him, but especially Goku Black and Fusion Zamasu.]] Even if he [[BaseBreakingCharacter remains a very divisive character]], many of the most quotable phrases and memes from the Future Trunks Saga come from him and his [[BadassBoast godly boasts]], or at his expense.
--->They don't seem to be listening to you at all.\\
I'm just being self-absorbed. It doesn't matter if no one's listening.\\
I see. How truly god-like.
** Gowasu also spawned a lot of memes, from his MemeticLoser status, to fanart, to Godtube.
* ''Manga/RozenMaiden'': Suiseiseki -- [[BigNo NO!]] Her name is [[FanNickname DESU]]! Shame on you, desu~!
* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has Roronoa Zoro's famous "Nothing Happened" scene at the end of the Thriller Bark arc. Luffy's had [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m9f0frmFXK1r87yg0o1_500.jpg his own for a while, too.]]
** Anything involving Gekko Moriah is basically meme fuel. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inprWey3SMo KISHISHISHISHI]]
* Aizen from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', nearly everything he says has meme potential.
* Anything Uchiha related in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', most notably any NotSoStoic facial expression done by Sasuke or Itachi.
* ''Manga/DeathNote'' has Light Yagami, who will be the [[AGodAmI GOD OF THE NEW WORLD]] as he [[MundaneMadeAwesome takes a potato chip AND EATS IT!!!]] He KNEW IT! JustAsPlanned.
* Just about anyone from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', but especially [[ClaspYourHandsIfYouDeceive Gendo]]. [[EnsembleDarkhorse Kaworu]] is also popular for memes.
* Kyubey of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', due to his [[FrozenFace narrow range]] of [[PerpetualSmiler facial expressions]], [[WeaselMascot cute and fuzzy appearance]], stalkerish behavior, and downright creepiness. Memes range from posting AsciiArt of [[CatSmile his face]] wherever possible to [[MoeAnthropomorphism anthropomorphizing him]] as a nubile young girl or {{bishounen}} with [[CatGirl cat ears]] to depicting him pestering {{Magical Girl}}s from [[{{Crossover}} other canons]] to finding new and creative ways to [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill kill]] [[TheScrappy him]] and depicting him [[MemeticMolester molesting the protagonist]]. In fact, the memes seem to be [[ThereCanBeOnlyOne engaged in a power struggle]].
* Cilan from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has been spouting these like crazy: He whips his Stunfisk back and forth; he's a [[MemeticMolester rapist]]; he eats his Pokemon; "It's Tasting Time" and "It's Lunch Time;" he's FABULOUS~; [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl screams like a girl]]...
** Several other characters as well....[[MemeticBadass GARY MOTHERFUCKING OAK]], Professor Oak, Ash, Brock...
** Manaphy from ''Anime/PokemonRangerAndTheTempleOfTheSea'' has a countless number of memes, questions on Quora, etc. Because it was basically a "Misty and Togepi" ripoff.
* Creator/MamoruMiyano is a metaexample since not only does he voice the above [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Cilan]] and [[Manga/DeathNote Yagami Light]] but is also a [[VisualNovel/SteinsGate Mad Scientist who speaks English]] and transform into a [[Anime/StarDriver Ginga Bishonen]] when IT'S A PINCH! He'd also would like to tell you that [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 he is Gundam.]]
* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': Levi has been made fun of by the entire fanbase, kinda going with his EnsembleDarkhorse status. See [[Memes/AttackOnTitan here for most of his parodies.]]
* While 4Kids may be despised for some of it's dubs, a good majority of that can be forgiven because of Dedede from Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa. Some many quotable lines, all done in a southern drawl.
** Dedede's facial expressions are pretty memetic too.
* [[{{ButNotTooForeign}} Ohara Mari]] from ''Anime/LoveLiveSunshine'', mainly known for her many [[{{Engrish}} Engrish]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izU-MRN3EcU scenes]] and being a MemeticMolester.
** [[{{FakeCutie}} Yazawa Nico]] with her brattiness, tsundere behavior and infamous [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PGhEgFpWi8 "Nico Nico Nii"]].
* Zero Two from ''Anime/DarlingInTheFranxx''. Thanks to her pink hair, [[LeParkour parkour]] skills, NoSenseOfPersonalSpace, and [[{{Troll}} trolling]] tendencies that give [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising Hades]] and [[Franchise/BlazBlue Terumi]] a run for their money, she has become ''extremely'' well known. She's even gained ''Western'' mainstream exposure, if Creator/KimKardashian's [[https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2018-03-05/kim-kardashian-says-darling-in-the-franxx-zero-two-inspired-her-hair/.128583 social posts are anything to go by]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* I'm the [[Memes/{{Batman}} Goddamn]] Franchise/{{Batman}} and [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace I can breathe in space]]. Oh, and [[MyParentsAreDead my parents are DEEAAAAAAD]]!!! Not to mention "I'm Batman!" though that was mainly from the first film.
** His sidekick Robin was also known for saying, "Holy [relevant pun]" but that was more due to the TV series from the '60s.
* The Doomguy from ''Comicbook/{{Doom}}''. The entirety of the comic is memetically quotable, his inner and outer monologues making up the whole text. '''Who's a man and a half!?!'''
-->"Who's the man? I'm the man! I'm a bad man! How bad? Real bad! I'm 12.0 on a 10.0 scale of badness!"
* [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} Then there's me, Deadpool]], [[FourthWallObserver naturally]]. There's just ''too'' much to list here. Also of note is my inclusion in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3''. See this section on that page's YMMV tab? Approximately ''75%'' of those phrases were uttered during the first peek at the game.
* [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Furmanism Furmanisms.]] Can they do no less?
* {{SUPERMAN}} although much of his memetic things began in other media, he originated in the comics. In any case, there's an entire lexicon of taglines and catch-phrases from and about him, as well as imitative behavior.
** Catch phrases and taglines:
*** "Look, up in the sky!"
*** "It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superman!"
*** "Up, up, and away!"
*** "This looks like a job for Superman!"
*** "You will believe a man can fly!"
*** His boss Perry White's catch phrases "Great Caesar's Ghost!" and "Don't call me Chief!" also caught on in the '50s.

** Imitative behavior
*** To this day, kids drape capes (or bathroom towels) on their backs and run around pretending to fly.
*** Removing your glasses and/or running out of a room unbuttoning your shirt sometimes mirror his transformation from Clark to Superman.
*** Winking at an audience after pulling a fast-one on your co-workers mirrors the end of many early installments.
*** Not quite imitative behavior, but the idea of the character changing in a phone booth, which only occurred a handful of times in story, and almost never in the actual comics, caught on to the point where it was lampooned in 1978's Superman with Clark running past a payphone and looking at it funny.

* Franchise/SpiderMan is another classic example of a character with scads of catch phrases and trademarks.

** A common meme centers around taking screencaps from the 1960's Spider-Man cartoon show and recaptioning them, often with profanity and/or sexually suggestive materials.

** Catch Phrases
*** "Whollopin' Websnappers!"
*** "My spider-sense is tingling!"
*** "With great power must also always come great responsibility!"

** Trademark behavior
*** Spinning webs, often to swing on.
*** Climbing walls (which you can imitate by crawling on the floor, I guess).
*** Not to mention, he often appropriates Superman's shirt-rip, as do most superheroes.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* The incomparable Enoby Draknes Dimenta Rave Way (Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way), "goff" protagonist of ''FanFic/MyImmortal''.

* Creator/SamuelLJackson. If he's in it, he'll not only create a few memes, but also a MemeticBadass in the process. And that certain scene in ''Film/PulpFiction'' is a meme from start to finish.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMq7AQL-_Yg Said scene]] (starting from about 4:30) really deserves to be expanded upon--there are five memes[[note]]"What ain't no country I ever heard of! Do they speak English in What?!" "English, motherfucker! Do you speak it?!" "I dare you, I double-dare you, motherfucker, say "what" one more goddamn time!" "Does he look like a bitch?" and "Marcellus Wallace don't like to be fucked by anybody except Mrs. Wallace."[[/note]] in 58 seconds.
** He also [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles needs to know where his super suit is, because he needs it for the greater good!]]
** And he has had it with these [[MemeticMutation memetic]] [[Film/SnakesOnAPlane snakes]] on this [[MemeticMutation memetic]] [[Film/SnakesOnAPlane plane]].
** He recognizes the [[Film/TheAvengers2012 Council]] has made a decision. But given that it's a stupid-ass decision he's elected to ignore it.
** And he will not grant [[Franchise/StarWars Anakin]] the rank of master, even though he is on the council.
* ''Film/ThreeHundred'': Leonidas' "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis THIS! IS! SPARTAAAA!]]" and "Tonight we dine in HELL!", the former being a former TropeNamer.
* ''Film/{{Scarface|1983}}'', aka Tony Montana: "Say Hello to my little friend!"
* Dr. Evil of ''Film/AustinPowers'' could buy this trope if he had *pinky raise*... one ''miiiillion'' dollars!
** Seriously, someone throw him a frickn' bone here!
** And if you are going to argue with him, he'll 'shh' you or tell you to zip it.
* Creator/BruceCampbell has spawned more than a few. Notably, "ThisIsMyBoomstick!" from ''Film/ArmyOfDarkness'' is a classic meme of {{geek}}dom.
* Creator/HumphreyBogart, especially in ''Film/{{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.
* ''Film/TropicThunder'': Kirk Lazarus, LEAD FARMER, MOTHERFUCKER! (Never go full retard.)
** [[EnsembleDarkHorse Les Grossman]] who asks you to take a step back, and literally '''''fuck your own face''''', or he'll '''''fuck you up!'''''
** You know why? Because ''a nutless monkey'' could do your job.
* Creator/RLeeErmey has spawned many, many memes, as various characters and as himself, [[DrillSergeantNasty maggot]]!
* Creator/MelBrooks has made a ''career'' out of memes, with nearly all of his films containing at least a handful.
* Creator/JimCarrey is another who has made a career full of memes.
* The Joker in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', as played by Creator/HeathLedger, 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.
* ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'': And now Bane's managed to follow in his footsteps and spawn a bunch of memes.
** The scene with Bane and [[OneSceneWonder Aiden Gillen's CIA agent]] is notable in that ''every single line of dialogue'' is memetic.
* ''Film/{{Batman}}'': Jack Nicholson's Joker was even ''more'' quoted, even a TropeNamer (WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys). This town needs an enema.
* Mae "Is that a pistol in your pocket OrAreYouJustHappyToSeeMe" West. Both as a character and herself.
* Apparently, Creator/BettyWhite is the current meme-of-the-week for the internet. [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/more-like-betty-whyte-amiright No one's quite sure why]].
* Inigo Montoya from the ''Film/ThePrincessBride'' is so meme-worthy [[MyNameIsInigoMontoya that he]] [[YouKilledMyFather named]] [[PrepareToDie five]] [[IAmNotLeftHanded different]] [[YouKeepUsingThatWord tropes]] [[JustForFun/{{Hello}} (and a half)]].
* ALL of ''Franchise/StarWars'', especially the prequels. There's even an [[https://www.reddit.com/r/PrequelMemes/ entire subreddit]] dedicated to prequel memes. The biggest providers being [[EvilIsHammy Emperor Palpatine]], Anakin and Obi-Wan.
** "[Overwhelming autistic screeching]"
** "I have the high ground!"
*** "You understimate my power!"
** "I don't like sand. It's course, it's rough, it's irritating, and it gets everywhere."
** "Hello there"
** "General Kenobi! You are a bold one!"
** "Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the wise?"
** "[X] will make a fine addition to my collection"
** "It's treason then."
** "He was a good friend..."
** You know ''Star Wars'' has reached this status when the fact that almost every line in the prequels seems to be a meme is, in and of itself, a meme.
* ''Film/StreetFighter'': For you, the day Bison graced Wiki/TVTropes with his presence was the most important day of your life... ButForMeItWasTuesday.
* ''WesternAnimation/StreetFighter'': Did Bison keep producing memes in the cartoon that followed? [[BigYes YESSSS!! YESSSS!!]]
** [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses Of Course!]]
* [[Creator/JohnnyDepp Agent Sands]] from ''Film/OnceUponATimeInMexico''. In fact, it'd probably be quicker to list the Creator/JohnnyDepp roles that ''aren't'' one of these.
* '''[[Creator/BrianBlessed BRIAN BLESSED]]''' can create memes '''[[LargeHam FROM HIS SHEER PRESENCE!]]'''
* Creator/ChristopherWalken: uh-Christopher. uh-Walken. He's un-FUCKING-believable!
* Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDxn0Xfqkgw 160 Greatest Quotes.]]
** Music/AsILayDying vocalist Tim Lambesis even made a [[Music/AustrianDeathMachine full-blown side project dedicated to this]].
* ''Film/{{Transformers}}'': Bonecrusher hates that he wasn't on this list.
** Bonecrusher also hates that he was added to this list.
* Creator/NicolasCage has been the source of many memes in his film appearances, with ''Film/TheWickerMan2006'' remake among one of the most notorious sources.
** ''Film/TheFamilyMan'': Does he want that cake? [[Creator/HarryPartridge He wants it!]] [[StupidStatementDanceMix HE WANTS THAT CAKE!]]
* Derek Film/{{Zoolander}}, male model who's really really ridiculously good-looking.
* Dory from ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''. Just keep swimming.
* Peeta Mellark from ''Film/TheHungerGames'' has spawned at least three different memes for whatever reason, the most popular being [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/advice-peeta Advice Peeta]].
* To quote Blain from Predator: "IAintGotTimeToBleed."
* ''Film/MeanGirls'' has spawned a ton of these:
** "On Wednesdays we wear pink!"
** "Get in, loser, we're going shopping"
** "The limit does not exist!"
** "She doesn't even go here!"
* The Dude, from ''Film/TheBigLebowski'', to the point where an entire religion/philosophy (Dude-ism) has been spawned.
** Dude's friend Walter. He's not wrong; he's just a goddamn asshole.
** You said it, man. [[MemeticMolester Nobody fucks wit' da Jesus]].
* O hai, Wiki/TVTropes! Everybody remembers Johnny from ''Film/TheRoom'', huh?
** Chris-R doesn't ''have'' five ''fucking'' minutes.
* To a very subtle extent, Robert Newton's portrayal of Long John Silver in the 1950 version of ''Film/{{Treasure Island|1950}}''. [[TalkLikeAPirate Arr!]]
* ''Film/ThereWillBeBlood'': "I drink your milkshake!"
* Creator/MontyPython's films have been mined down to memetic quotes, to the point where many people who've never seen them can cite chapter and verse from films they've never even seen. Their memetic status has, in fact, reached memetic status.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' gave us [[Creator/WilliamShatner Captain]] [[TheKirk Kirk]], [[Creator/LeonardNimoy Mister]] [[TheSpock Spock]] and [[ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder "I'm a doctor, not a..."]] [[Creator/DeForestKelley Doctor]] [[TheMcCoy McCoy]].
** The Vulcan salute may be the most memetic hand gesture that originated in fiction.
** Talking like... THIS... to imitate... William Shat... ner's... acting style.
** There are a number of fictional languages, but none more widely used (to the point where there's actually a friggin' dictionary) than Klingon.
** "Beam Me Up, Scotty," may not have actually been spoken on the show, but it's commonly used anyway.
* ''Series/TheOfficeUS'': Dwight Schrute, Assistant (to the) Regional Manager. Michael is also a a big one.
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': Pretty much everyone in the main cast, especially Chandler.
* Andy Samberg and Music/TheLonelyIsland. Hell, ''SNL'' [[Memes/SaturdayNightLive in general]].
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'' has Brittany, the cheerleader [[BrainlessBeauty in desperate need of a brain transplant]] saying at least one meme-inducing one-liner per episode.
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'': [[Creator/NeilPatrickHarris Barney Stinson]] continually spouts lines that are legen... wait for it, and I hope you're not lactose intolerant because the next part is DARY!
* Papa Lazarou only appeared on three episodes of ''Series/TheLeagueOfGentlemen'', and he has reached this status. Isn't that right, DAAAAAAAAAAVE?
* The Wrestling/UltimateWarrior. Just about any sentence that comes out of his mouth ([[CloudCuckoolander provided you can understand it]]).
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has the one, the only, [[SpellMyNameWithAThe the]] Doctor, who offers people [[TrademarkFavoriteFood jelly babies]] while wearing a vegetable, will ReverseThePolarity [[BeamMeUpScotty 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.
* Horatio Caine from ''Series/CSIMiami''.
* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'': [[InsufferableGenius Sheldon Cooper]].
* Creator/ConanOBrien thinks this trope LOOKS GOOOOD!
* Bill O'Reilly's statement on tides resulted in [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/bill-oreilly-you-cant-explain-that two memes]] [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/are-you-serious-face-seriously back to back]], with a [[Series/TheColbertReport Colbert Report]] bit on the matter resulting in a [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/knowledgeable-neil third meme]]. You can't explain that.
* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', along with making the silhouetted image of its principle cast memetic in and of itself, elevated characters from many of the featured movies to this trope.
** ''Film/PodPeople''. You ''are'' magic, aren't you, Trumpy?
** ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate''. [[AccentUponTheWrongSyllable ThEre iS no tRopE liKe tHaT arOunD hEre. I aM TorGo. ThEre iS no tRopE liKe tHaT arOunD hEre.]]
** ''Film/Escape2000'''s Dablone is so delightfully hammy that he used to be the trope namer for BoisterousBruiser.
** ''Film/PumaMan'', known for his whining.
** Ambassador Phantom of the planet Krankor, from ''Film/PrinceOfSpace''. Eh heh heh heh heh heh heh.
* Hey look, it's any character played by Frank Nelson.
* ''Dragnet'' Just the opening narration: "this... is the city... Los Angeles, California. I work here. I carry a badge."
** "Just the facts."
** 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.
* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': Kuroto Dan, due to having a combination of ridiculous face punchability, exaggerated movements in every single muscle in his body, and having [[LargeHam little to no volume control as the series progresses]].

* Music/LadyGaga. Has she had a single that ''wasn't'' subject to rampant acapella covers / font-related parodies / math jokes?
* Music/{{Beyonce}}. Anything she does is subject to tributes, covers, parodies, etc.
** The Single Ladies Dance. (All the single ladies? All the single ladies!)
** The lyrics on ''Lemonade'' take on a life of their own and are repeated constant. "Boy, bye!" and "Becky with the good hair" are the two biggest examples.
* Music/DavidBowie. [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} The Area]], anyone? [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers When he's not trying to take over the world, that is]]. Maybe it's just that sexy central London accent.
** His IconicOutfit (really makeup) on the ''Music/AladdinSane'' cover also counts; that lightning bolt is still his single most-referenced "look" in pop culture.
* Music/JessicaSimpson: Most famously, "Is this chicken or fish?"
* Yo, Music/TaylorSwift, I'm really happy for you and Imma let you finish, but Music/KanyeWest had the best memes of all time!
* Music/Freddie Mercury. From his iconic mustache to the now-famous rage meme to the many, many memetic songs he made, everything about him just screams MemeticBadass. Because after all, he didn't die of AIDS, pure epic power simply overwhelmed his body and he ascended back to the higher plane of existence from whence he came.
* Music/WeirdAlYankovic - not as memetastic as others, but it's called the WeirdAlEffect for a reason.
* "[[Music/TheAvalanches Frontier Psychiatrist]]". Basically every line in this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8BWBn26bX0 one song]] is a meme.
* Music/MichaelJackson. "Woo!", "Ah-HEE-hee-hee!", "Shimonuh!"
** The "Thriller" zombie dance.
** His choreographed crotch-grabbing.
** The documentary ''Living with Michael Jackson'' had him occasionally using the words "ignorance" and "ignorant" with regards to what other people thought of his bizarre lifestyle, resulting in "That's/You're ignorant!" effectively being his catchphrase in the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "The Jeffersons".
* Music/RebeccaBlack.
* It only took Music/{{Psy}} one video ("Gangnam Style") to become this.
* Music/{{Drake}}. He was the subject of three different memes in 2015. First when Madonna kissed him, then with the album artwork for "If You're Reading This It's Too Late," and then his single Hotline Bling. The parodies and video edits were enough to fuel tumblr and reddit for months at a time.

Politicans with "colorful" personalities, tendencies to use [[{{Malaproper}} malapropisms]], and cases of [[OpenMouthInsertFoot foot-in-mouth]] [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud syndrome]] are often meme fountains.
* UsefulNotes/JoeBiden, Vice President of the United States, whose title is frequently prefaced with "gaffe-prone." Possibly the only man to call something "a bunch of [[CurseOfTheAncients 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.
* UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush, what with his famous "[[{{Malaproper}} Bushisms]]" and his unusual friendliness toward foreign leaders ("looking into UsefulNotes/VladimirPutin's soul" at his Texas ranch and giving [[UsefulNotes/TheChancellorsOfGermany Angela Merkel]] a shoulder massage at a NATO summit, for instance).
* Before Dubya, there was UsefulNotes/DanQuayle. 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 UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy:
-->'''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, '''[[PretenderDiss 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 [[Memes/{{Politics}} 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.
* First Polish post-communist president, Lech Wałęsa, is so known for this in Poland that [[https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wałęsizm Walesisms]] have their own page on Wiki/TheOtherWiki. He's for, and even against, and he'll answer you in deceptive straightforward way. He can invite Mr Lech Kaczyński with his wife or Mr Jarosław Kaczyński with his husband. He doesn't want, but he must. He made a 360 degrees turn. There are positive and negative pluses.
* In UsefulNotes/TheSixties and UsefulNotes/TheSeventies, William Safire--later known as the resident [[GrammarNazi language policeman]] at ''The New York Times''--was a speechwriter for UsefulNotes/RichardNixon and Spiro Agnew (among others), and penned some of the most famous political memes of the era (e.g. "[[AddedAlliterativeAppeal nattering nabobs of negativism]]" for Nixon's opponents).
* Unsurprisingly, [[UsefulNotes/CanadianPolitics Canadian Prime Minister]] and BunnyEarsLawyer-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 TropeCodifier.
* As far as bizarre quotations go, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boyle_Roche 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.
* ''Anything'' said by Sarah Palin and Donald Trump.
* Vladimir Putin.
** The glorious leader of Mother Russia. He rides horses, dolphins, your mother and even ritz crackers.
** He attempted to ban memes. It backfired.
* Ed Balls.
** Ed Balls.
* UsefulNotes/RodrigoDuterte doesn't like Americans and he [[DrugsAreBad HEYTS DRUGS]] and wants to STAHP IT.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Former [[ProfessionalWrestling professional wrestler]] Wrestling/{{Batista}} became this in the eyes of {{Smart Mark}}s following his BadassDecay. Aside from his botching, he had a tendency to stumble over words which led to this status.
* Wrestling/CMPunk. The sheer amount of memes this man has graced us is ''amazing''.
* Before CM Punk, there was [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson 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...!"
* AND HIS NAME IS [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Am4oKAmc2To JOHN CENA]]
* Wrestling/ChrisJericho. After all, [[CatchPhrase he's the best in the world at what he does.]]
* Wrestling/BookerT graces fans with loads of phrases that are bound to become memetic when he's on the commentary.

* ''Radio/LoZooDi105'': The whole show, among its fandom, whether it may have come from a RunningGag, an OverlyLongGag, an OverusedRunningGag or just a ForcedMeme. The fandom gleefully embraces the catchy lines, and therefore MemeticMutation is always running rampant.

* 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 [[BrawnHilda 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:
*** "It ain't over until it's over" is a quote from a season when the Mets were 9 games behind with 10 games left to play.
*** "Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded," is about a restaurant in his native St. Louis, which had previously been relatively unknown but was now packed with people.
*** "When you come to a fork in the road, take it" [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext comes from him giving driving directions to catcher Joe Garagiola for how to get to Berra's house]] in UsefulNotes/NewJersey.
*** "I never said most of the things I said" was Yogi's way of disavowing [[BeamMeUpScotty the (many) quotes that are wrongly attributed to him]].
* Ilya Bryzgalov, formerly of the [[UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague Philadelphia Flyers]] seems to be on his way to this after his appearances in [[Series/NHL247 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 MemeticMutation.
** "Is only a game. Why you heff to be mad?"
* In the 2014/15 NFL season, Marshawn Lynch answered reporters' questions with the same thing over and over.
** "Yeah."
** "Thanks for askin'."
** "I'm just here so I won't get fined."[[note]][[{{Irony}} He did end up getting fined for this one.]][[/note]]
* UsefulNotes/TheWorldCup can reach this even for people that don't care about UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball. At least one meme preceded the internet (1986: Diego Maradona punches the ball into the goal [[NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught and the referee accepts]]; Maradona's response was "I made the goal with my head and the hand of God").
** The 2010 World Cup gave us moments such as Rob Green fumbling balls into the goal, Gervinho's hairstyle, and the ever-classic [[InterruptingMeme vuvuzela]].
** 2014 gave us things Tim Howard could save, Luis Suarez biting people (again), and Germany 7-1 Brazil.

* [[VideoGame/FZero Captain Falcon]] [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros 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 VideoGame/MetalGearSolid fame has appeared in the series as of ''Brawl''. Since that series is also a FountainOfMemes... "Mei-Ling! [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Samus]] took her clothes off!"
** Also from ''Brawl'', [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Ike]] has gotten this treatment in the English-speaking and Japanese fandom alike; it at times reached ''Captain Falcon'' levels. This was only amplified with the reveal of his bulked-up muscular ''Radiant Dawn'' design in the fourth game.
** The fourth game has [[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} Shulk]], memetic ever since first uttering the already-memetic "I'm really feeling it!" in his reveal trailer, who is pretty much to Smash 4 as Capt. Falcon is to the first game and Ike is to ''Brawl''. Good luck going on any Shulk-related topic without hearing or seeing "I'm really feeling it!" or "It's Shulk time!" at least once.
* For a game which is about memes, is it any surprise that ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'' NEEDS SCISSORS. 61!
** Speaking of Metal Gear, ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' introduced a certain [[spoiler:Senator Armstrong]] that instantly became this in spite of only appearing at the end. '''Nanomachines, son!'''
** [[QuirkyMinibossSquad The Winds of Destruction]] in general have each gained memetic status, due to being so quotable and their designs. Monsoon would be pleased.
** [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome RULES OF NATURE]]
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'': Demon Lord Ghirahim (aka [[FanNickname Deb]][[GenderBlenderName bie]]) feels "Furious! Outraged! Sick with anger!" that mere mortals mention his name to mock it... but having been mentioned at all positively [[AmbiguouslyGay fills his heart with rainbows!]]
* Franchise/SuperMarioBros:
** Mario in the [=CD-i=] ''VideoGame/HotelMario'' game is well known for, among other things, proudly proclaiming that '''[[CaptainObvious All toastas toast toast]]''' and looking about 300 pounds overweight, leading to the nickname "Fat Mario". It has more memes:
-->'''Mario:''' Nice of the Princess to invite us over for a picnic, [[{{Mondegreen}} Gay Luigi?]]
-->'''Luigi:''' I hope she made lotsa spaghetti!
-->'''Luigi:''' Did you bring a light?
-->'''Mario:''' '''''[[BigNo NO]].'''''
-->'''Mario:''' Hey, you! Get offa my cloud!
** Luigi. He is well known for his ''VideoGame/MarioKart 8'' DeathGlare, [[WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld being Yoshi's mama]], his alter-ego [[VideoGame/MarioIsMissing We]][[YouDontLookLikeYou eg]][[LadyMondegreen ee]], [[VideoGame/MarioParty winning by doing absolutely nothing]], [[VideoGame/SuperPaperMario giving his name away]] [[HypocriticalHumor immediately after saying he wouldn't]], [[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor going to a]] SugarBowl kingdom where everybody hates him, and being GentlemanThief [[VideoGame/SuperPaperMario Mr. L]], among other things.
** ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi'': Fawful would like to remind you, "''I HAVE FURY!''" and "''[[IntentionalEngrishForFunny I am the mustard of your doom!]]''"
* ''VideoGame/StarFox64'': Peppy Hare would like you to DoABarrelRoll! Additionally, Falco would like to inform you that he's on your side, Einstein! But Wolf can't let them do that.
** Taken UpToEleven. 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.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' is pretty much [[Memes/{{Touhou}} made of this]] and SelfFanservice.
** Even amongst ''Touhou'' characters, [[AnIcePerson Cir]][[TheDitz no]] surpasses them all in sheer meme density. She is, after all, [[SmallNameBigEgo the Strongest]].
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' brings us GILGAMESH (the caps are required), who would become ''the'' BreakoutCharacter of the series appearing in many games, each time as a LargeHam BloodKnight 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...[[PowerRangers it's morphing time]]!"
* Kefka of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', particularly as he's arguably the series's best argument for {{Woolseyism}}s. Even his [[SignatureLaugh trademark]] EvilLaugh is memetic.
-->"Son of a submariner!" \\
"Run run, or you'll be well done!" \\
"I hate hate hate hate HATE YOU!" \\
"'Wait' he says. Do I look like a waiter?" \\
"'''AHEM!''' There's '''SAND''' on my boots!" \\
"This is sickening! [[PatrickStewartSpeech You sound like chapters from a self-help booklet]]!"
* Vaan of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' is an interesting case -- [[AmericansHateTingle 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!" \\
"Basch lives!"
* Exdeath, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'', wasn't particularly popular or memetic in his original game. Then ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' came out, and his {{Mondegreen}} lines, both in Japanese and English versions, combined with his [[LargeHam hamminess]] and obsession with the [[VoidBetweenTheWorlds Void]], catapulted him to [[EnsembleDarkhorse 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!" \\
"Naive weekly!" \\
"VOID!" \\
"TURTLE!" \\
"Tasty arrow...''is yummeh''!"
** As someone on Youtube pointed out, he's a TREE! [[SidetrackedByTheAnalogy Surely he should be able to grow his own fruit!]]
* Owain from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is definitely this, and quite possibly the hammiest character in the game. A vast majority of the things that come out of his mouth have become memes, specifically anything relating to his "sword hand."
--> "My sword hand twitches!"
--> "Down, sword hand!"
--> "CAN'T... CONTROL!"
** Odin from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' is just as big this as Owain is. [[spoiler:Makes sense since they're the same person.]]
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' also brought us Takumi, whom we have to alternatively blame and praise for everything that happened in the game. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxdZdKu_yQo&list=PLN1i7NpIp-Is45aBoaQLXGEmJwD12sxOw He also does Stand Up Comedy on You Tube]]. You don't find him funny? [[MemeticMutation "Nohrian scum!"]] "You abandoned your family... and Hoshido... Now '''pay''', for your '''betrayal'''!"
* Gray from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia]]'' is probably one of the most-quoted characters from that game. Having a hugely-expanded, [[StraightManAndWiseGuy witty]] and [[DeadpanSnarker sarcastic]] personality compared to the original ''Gaiden'', coupled with [[Creator/MaxMittelman his English VA's]] excellent delivery, quickly turned him into a fan-favorite. Especially almost anything he says to [[ThoseTwoGuys Tobin]], a good example being the infamous [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xwci17ANKBA "Shut up, Tobin"]] line.
* "Attention, all yoctograms! (It's x 2) DIE!" You aren't forgetting [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Sho Minamimoto]], are you? So zetta slow!
* Dudley from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII''. [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Keeping it classy]] since '97. Do the words [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen "Let's fight... like gentlemen."]] [[TropeNamers 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 [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2 "IT'S MAHVEL, BAYBEE!"]] along with other memorable phrases during matches.
** This even gets [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYiRlbtN3Iw on Cross Counter Live]] when Yipes is commentating on his match against Fanatiq in ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 UMvC3]]'': "Are these descriptions going on in your head when you're playing the match?"
* The PSX era of the ''VideoGame/MegaManClassic'' franchise sure has some infamous voice acting. After all, in ''VideoGame/MegaMan8'' 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 ''VideoGame/MegaManX4'' 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!"
* [[VideoGame/FatalFury Terry]] [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Bogard]]. [[GratuitousEnglish Everything]] [[{{Mondegreen}} he says]] is subjected to this, to the point of meta-humor.
** His {{archenemy}}, series' BigBad Geese Howard, isn't too far behind, especially taking his GratuitousEnglish lines from the ''[[VideoGame/SNKVsCapcom Capcom vs. SNK]]'' games into account. "PREDICTABO!"
* Albert Wesker from ''Franchise/ResidentEvil''. especially in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil5 RE5]]''. Creator/DCDouglas' [[ChewingTheScenery performance]] has a lot to do with it.
** Barry Burton in the original ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'', thanks to his [[SoBadItsGood crappy but hilarious dialogues and voice acting.]]
** Everything said by the Merchant in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' is a meme. We mean everything.
--> "WELCUHM."
* Anything [[PapaWolf Flint]] does or says in ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' is considered [[MemeticBadass Badass]] due to looking like Creator/ChuckNorris.
* ''{{VideoGame/Fallout 3}}'' - when the climax of the game has you besieging the enemy encampment with a HumongousMecha shouting PatrioticFervor {{Badass Boast}}s and throwing explosives and firing lasers to deliver a CurbStompBattle to dozens of enemies, no wonder fans love him. Meet Liberty Prime.
* [[MemeticBadass Saurfang]] has Cleaved this page for failing to recognise the meme power of ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''.
** [[MemeticBadass Crowley]] has Cleaved this page again for failing to recognize the rest of ''VideoGame/WarCraft''
*** That's a 50 DKP Minus!
*** [[IncrediblyLamePun Ragnar-Os Two scoops! Executus! By fiber be purged!]]
*** Deathwing promised me a pony!
*** Nerf it? TO THE GROUND, BABY!
* Morrigan disapproves of ''Franchise/DragonAge'' memes.
** More obviously Alistair, who's here to remind you that swooping is ''bad''.
** Goddamnit, Anders!
* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'': Solaire of Astora really stands out in the ''Dark Souls'' series, being an optimistic, happy-go-lucky CloudCuckooLander searching for "his very own sun"... quite a contrast against the cynical and grim atmosphere that pervades the game world. As a result, he became a fan favorite and most of his lines have become memes in the ''Dark Souls'' fandom, most famously "Praise the Sun!" and telling people to "engage in Jolly Cooperation!"
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': The Dragonborn would have been here earlier on his [[GoodBadBugs physics defying horse]], but had to yell "[[BlownAcrossTheRoom FUS RO DAH!]]" at most people he passed, before taking an arrow to the knee.
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': The Heavy talks to Sandvich, spends $400,000 to fire [[ICallHerVera Sasha]] for twelve seconds, calls everyone credit to team and thinks entire trope is BABIES!
** [[{{Mondegreen}} POOTIS.]]
* The G-Men from ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'':
--> "I am on the road crew. This is my stop sign."
--> "What is the purpose of the goggles?"
--> "[[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness Although I often smell of excrement, I should not be discriminated against, as I provide a valuable service.]]"
* Pretty much almost ''every'' single line in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames'' is a meme, but especially King Harkinian's. Here are some meme lines:
--> '''King Harkinian''': "[[{{Mondegreen}} Mah boi]], this peace is what all true warriors strive for!"
--> '''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!"
--> '''Merchant''': "Sorry, Link, I can't give credit! Come back when you're a little... ''MMMMMMMM...'' richer!
--> '''Ganon:''': "Join me, Link, and I will make your face the GR-RREATEST in Koridai! Or else ''you will DIE''!"
--> '''Ganon:''': "You DARE bring light to my lair?! YOU MUST DIE!"
--> '''Link:''': "Gee... it sure is booooooooring around here..."
* ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'':
** Aperture's insane founder, Cave Johnson, tends to say insane things that tend to be absolutely hilarious.
--> '''Cave''': All right, I've been thinking: when life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! GET MAD! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these?! 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.
** SelfDemonstrating/GLaDOS also qualifies. Her cake is a lie. ''Because she's a POTATO.''
* Reggie [[FanNickname "The Regginator"]] Fils-Aime, president of ''Creator/{{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!
--> [[DoubleEntendre "My body is ready."]] This was later [[MemeAcknowledgment referenced again]] at E3 2012, 5 years later. (And referenced yet again several times during the Wii U release at Nintendo World Store, where he seemed to have made it into a CatchPhrase of sorts.)
--> "What's wrong with you?"
--> "I feel like a purple Pikmin."
--> Zombie Reggie, from E3 2012 when he tested a feature from VideoGame/ZombiU which made your picture into a zombie. Phrases said during this include "I'm hungry now." and "I like French food."
--> FILSAMECH, his robotic alter-ego from a Mega 64 video advertising the Super Smash Bros. Invitational. Watch out, he WouldHitAGirl with his lasers if you don't do what he says!
* ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' memes, you say? GO FOR THE EYES, BOO! GO FOR THE EYES!
** While Minsc is pretty much a one-man meme factory[[note]]"Butt-kicking for Goodness!", "You point, I punch", "Squeaky wheel gets da kick!", "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, watch it! I'm HUGE!", "Ah, nighttime. Good for sneaking up on evil", "Jump on my sword while you can, evil, I won't be as gentle"[[/note]] there's also Xan ("Our quest is vain") who has several of his own.
* ''[[VideoGame/DawnOfWar Dawn Of War: Soulstorm]]'' created the single biggest meme in the 40K fanbase, [[FanNickname Indrick Baldreale of the Bald Ravens.]]
--> [[SpaceMarine "Spess Mahreens"]]
--> "Steel Rehn"
--> "Emprah"
--> "Bald and Fewlish"
--> [[BigNo "No!"]]
--> "Multiple simultaneous and [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal devastating defensive deep]] strikes."
** It also features Firaeveous Carron's hatred of ''[[{{Narm}} MEHTAL BAWKSES!!]]'' and [[FanNickname Cornholio the Cultist]].
* ''[[VideoGame/{{STALKER}} S.T.A.L.K.E.R.]]'' has the Bandits, who love to CHEEKI BREEKI I V DAMKE. Pretty much every single line from them is a minor meme. Hell, their in-game ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBhh23-paLU theme song]]'' is a meme.
* While ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' usually has their memes few and far between, ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' gives us the Black Market dealers, who have become extremely quotable due to their annoyed tones.
--> "Oh...a Hunter."
--> "You had to come now, didn't you?"
--> "This is real, right?"
--> "You still got business here?"
--> "Make sure you bring more Macca next time!"
* ''VideoGame/Persona4'': Adachi. He has a lot of [[OffModel odd expressions]] and memorable lines [[spoiler: especially once he's revealed as the killer]] that fandom have latched onto.
* ''VideoGame/Persona5'':
** Pretty much everything about Akechi has given way to some form of meme within the fanbase.
** Morgana for his Memetic Troll status and the fact that many fans have taken to quoting his overworld and battle lines
* ''VisualNovel/ZeroEscape'' managed to break into the meme scene thanks to the [[BigBad Zero]] from the third entry, ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', whose speeches about snails and life being unfair are ''endlessly'' quoteable.
* Many of the monsters in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' are extremely colorful and therefore extremely memorable. Flowey, Sans, Papyrus, Undyne, and Mettaton are loaded to the gills with lines that are endlessly repeated. Some also have very memorable gestures, such as Papyrus' peculiar battle pose, and ''anything'' Mettaton does on-screen.
* ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'' has characters such as [[spoiler: Nagito]] (who has a....[[{{Understatement}} very interesting personality]]), Ouma (thanks to him being a LaughablyEvil {{Troll}}), and [[spoiler: Korekiyo]] (due to the reveals that ended up happening during the chapter where [[spoiler: he committed murder]].
* While Shulk may be the resident fountain of memes in [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Smash 4]], ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles'' gets the bulk of its memes from Shulk's boisterous friend, Reyn.
--> "Now it's Reyn Time!" / "Reyn time, baby!" / "Yeah! Reyn time!"
--> "Man, what a bunch o' jokahs!"
--> "Let's not lose our 'eads, though!"
--> "You can't have a rainbow without Reyn, baby."[[note]]"Dunban, I think you need to have a talk with Reyn." "[[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain No let's pretend it didn't happen.]]"[[/note]]
** "Now it's Reyn time" [[MemeAcknowledgment became one of Shulk's taunts in Super Smash Bros 4]], and in Shulk's [[EasterEgg Palutena's Guidance conversation]] Pit even references "Man, what a bunch of jokers" and "Let's not lose our heads, though", imitating Reyn's distinct accent.
* And from ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'', the Ardainian Soldiers. Also known as [[TheComputerShallTauntYou THINK YOU CAN TAKE ME? THINK YOU CAN TAKE ME? DON'T FORGET ME! YER DUN! THINK YOU CAN TAKE ME? YER DUN! DON'T FORGET ME!]]


[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In-universe example: Dave Strider of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', whose magnum opus, ''Webcomic/SweetBroAndHellaJeff'', is regularly referenced by other characters.
** And has become this outside the comic as well.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Creator/BenCroshaw of ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' has inspired quite a few himself, largely due to his idiosyncratic style of humor. Notables include "pants-on-head retarded", mumorpuger, PressXToNotDie, triple-cunted hooker, the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race.
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic has spawned several in his short time of internet fandom; "A-Creator/ChuckNorris!" and "[[Film/SuburbanCommando I was]] [[Creator/ChristopherLloyd FROZEN today!]]" are among his more popular. CreatorBacklash 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". He even tried to force the trope name "[[CrazyAwesome Frying the Coke]]". [[ForcedMeme It didn't work.]]
** WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick has quite a few of her own. She was overjoyed when BigLippedAlligatorMoment became a trope.
* ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'': LINKARA! He is a man! *PUNCH*
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'': Strong Bad has unleashed many memes upon the world, including TropeNamers on This Very Wiki such as YourHeadASplode, YouGottaHaveBlueHair, and YouCantGetYeFlask. However, no one has yet discovered how he manages to type with boxing gloves on.
** Homsar was raised by a cup of coffee. [=AaAaAaAaA!=]
* Creator/{{Egoraptor}} and WebVideo/JonTron were both memetic fountains on their own, so when WebVideo/GameGrumps combined them it wasn't a surprise that they had over a dozen memes literally just two weeks into the show.
* ''Radio/TrueCapitalist'': Ghost wants everyone to know he's a melting pot of friendship (HE'S A NICE GUY!) before ''cans.wav''ing.
* The page quote comes from Nappa in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', lampshading this concept and how most of the funny and memorable moments in the first season come from him. In the second season, he has to share with Super Kami Guru and the Ginyu Force.
* ''WebVideo/JonTron'': The man has inspired more .gif images than nearly any other person on Earth. Just have a look-see at his Website/KnowYourMeme [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/people/jontron-jon-jafari/photos gallery.]]
* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'': The series' interpretation of Rogal Dorn; every damn line of his becomes memetic thanks to his perfect deadpan delivery and extreme matter-of-factness about everything.
* As of 2016, [[https://www.youtube.com/user/iDubbbzTV iDubbbz]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/user/TVFilthyFrank Filthy Frank]] have seen a drastic increase in the usage of their videos in an online trend called "dank memes". Oddly enough, the [[https://www.youtube.com/user/maxmoefoe third member]] of their PowerTrio doesn't see nearly as much recognition.
* WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}}, especially Vinny and Joel's streams, the latter of which had a meme which led to the creation of Music/SiIvaGunner.
* Thanks to Creator/GavinFree's status as Creator/RoosterTeeth's resident {{Cloudcuckoolander}} DitzyGenius, anything he has said or done has been turned into a meme within their fanbase or has become part of TheMerch. His infamous Tower of Pimps in ''Videogame/{{Minecraft}}'' even became an EasterEgg in the game itself, and his frequent hypothetical (and often bizarre) questions has become an actual card game and recurring show on their site.

* ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld'': Luigi's lines in the Mario cartoons are [[LargeHam hilariously over-the-top]], particularly in the "Mama Luigi" episode. '''"That's Mama Luigi to you, Mario!"''' *wheeze*
* Dr. Ivo Robotnik in ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' is this. He really hates that PINGAS!
** Robotnik from [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM that other]] ''Sonic'' cartoon is also like this, mostly because he's voiced by Creator/JimCummings.
** [[IdiotHero DiC's Sonic]] is this in [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog all three]] [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM American]] [[WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground cartoons]] to the point that fans love quoting his catchphrases and expressions ad nauseam to this day [[BeamMeUpScotty despite them never being used in the games.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' in general tends to generate memes, but Eric Cartman is a particularly active meme fountain. "[[ScrewThisImOuttaHere Screw you guys, I'm going home]]" and "Respect mah AUTHORITAH!" are two good examples, as well as his cover of Music/LadyGaga's "Poker Face."
* Cheese of ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends''
* Ed from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. Pretty much ''anything'' that has come out of his mouth has become prime ''WebAnimation/YouTubePoop'' material at some point.
* Patrick Star from ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants''.
--> "Who're you callin' pinhead?"
--> "Is mayonnaise an instrument?"
--> "It's called the ugly barnacle..."
--> "Firmly grasp it in your hand."
--> "May I take your hat, sir?"
--> "Where's the leak, ma'am?"
--> "'''FINLAND!'''"
--> "'''NO! THIS IS PATRICK!'''"
--> "MY NAME'S... '''NOT... RIIIIIIIIIICK!'''"
--> "WUMBO!"
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Almost anything Rainbow Dash does or says will become a meme ''in ten seconds flat.''
** Pinkie Pie. Oh so very much.
-->"And I said 'Oatmeal? Are you CRAZ..?' ...Oh."
** The image of Fluttershy holding [[spoiler:a phoenix]]'s ashes from "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E22ABirdInTheHoof A Bird in the Hoof]]" has become very popular meme fodder.
*** Fluttershy would also like to be a tree.
** And [[EnsembleDarkhorse Princess Luna]]. Her fans, her [[FloweryElizabethanEnglish outdated speech]], and her '''[[LargeHam ROYAL]] [[NoIndoorVoice CANTERLOT]] [[VoiceOfTheLegion VOICE]]''' may have something to do with this.
** Really, most major characters (and a few minor ones) have become this. [[Memes/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic The show spawns a ton of memes.]]
* [[EnsembleDarkhorse No]][[DeadpanSnarker ah]] from ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama''.
* A good amount [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory of]] [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents cartoon]] [[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius dads]] can be considered this by some.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' is full of memes, most of which are perpetrated by Homer. There's also the "Skinner and the Superintendent" skit from the episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS7E2122ShortFilmsAboutSpringfield 22 Short Films About Springfield]]", where literally ''every line'' is a meme unto itself, especially Seymour calling "his" hamburgers "Steamed Hams" and Chalmers questioning Seymour's claim that there's an ''aurora borealis'' "at this time of year, at this time of day, in this part of the country, ''localized entirely within [his] kitchen''".
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', much like the Simpsons, is full of memes. Fry and Zoidberg are usually the main source for them, such as "Not Sure if X or Y", "X is bad and you should feel bad!", "Shut up and take my money!", "Why not Zoidberg?" and more.
* Nigel Thornberry from ''WesternAnimation/TheWildThornberrys'' has a simply ''[[CatchPhrase smashing]]'' amount of memes revolving around him! His CloudCuckoolander nature, LargeHam tendencies, distinctive schnoz, and Creator/TimCurry's hilarious performance (coupled with the fact that it's one of his more [[PlayingAgainstType different]] roles) probably have something to do with it.
* GIR from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''. Dear Lord.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'': The members of Dethklok, [[GutturalGrowler Nathan Explosion]] in particular, have a number of notable quotes, including "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKss2uYpih8 NOOOOO]][[BigNo OOOOO!!!]]", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdftcvkgvJQ WE CAN'T DO ANYTHING RIGHT!]]", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzyHc1B3h4g I'd rather die than go to Heaven.]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwaD9tb1P50 RELEASE...]] [[MundaneMadeAwesome THE KITTIES!]]" The fact that they're each quite [[LargeHam hammy]] probably helps.
* Mabel from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''. Especially regarding her [[GRatedDrug Smile Dip]] scene.
-->"The future... is in the past! Onwards, Aoshima!"
* In the same vein as Cheese above is Fred Fredburger from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy''.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' brings us Peridot, who causes new memes to spring forth with every appearance she makes. It's to the point that the [[Memes/StevenUniverse Steven Universe meme page]] has its own section dedicated solely to her.
* No mention of the Earl of Lemongrab from WesternAnimation/AdventureTime? UNACCEPTIBUUUUUUULL!!!!! ONE MILLION YEEEEEARS DUNGEON!
* WesternAnimation/WeBareBears: Ice Bear has his own department full of memes.
* '' WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': FOOLISH tropers! Once again, your edits are in vain! You have forgotten to mention the EXTRA THICC supply of GREEEEAT FLAAAAMING MEEEEEMES that is Aku, the master of masters, the deliverer of darkness, the shogun of sorrow!
** And you simply ''can't'' forget me, babe: Scaramouche the Merciless, yeah! People have been referencing ''me'' and my fabulously fantastic MemeticMutation ever since I showed up in Season 5. EnsembleDarkhorse-dom, here I come!
* Darwin Watterson from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' has a "fake smile" in "The Meddler" episode that eventually became a universal meme.
