  • This still of Goku has been making the rounds lately. It's not actually Off Model, being an in-between frame designed to make the animation look more fluid, a common technique in Western Animation does. Here it is in gif form.
  • "Yamcha, no!" or "It's Yamcha's fault if the world's destroyed" in response to the preview clip in Super where Yamcha gives Beerus a good-natured slap on the back and seems to accidentally set him off. Turns out the preview showed the events out of order; just as it was in the movie, Buu pissed off Beerus by not sharing pudding. Hilarious in Hindsight as Yamcha actually sets off Beerus in a later episode for blurting out the secret about Monaka in front of Goku.
  • Vegeta cooking for Beerus in Super sparks some jokes from Jump Fans by renaming it "Shokugeki no Vegeta".

  • After the revelation that Gowasu watches Godtube and jokes about becoming a Godtuber, it has become ongoing joke that the reason why Gawasu doesn't notice the evil growing in Zamasu's heart is because he's too busy posting Godtube comments. Gowasu posting Godtube videos with clickbait titles is also common. This branches into another meme that all Whis' images on his staff are actually Gobtube videos, like Goku turning into a Super Saiyan against Frieza, and the entire tournament between U6 and U7 was live streamed by Vados and him.
