Memes / Final Fantasy

Final Fantasy. You know, that teeth-crunchingly popular series that everyone who actually plays video games has, at the absolute least, heard of? If it's that popular, with the release of each game, you know that it'll spawn memes.

When adding to this page, please write the meme, then add the explanation of the meme inside a labelnote titled "Explanation." Not everyone knows where a particular meme came from or how it's used, even if it's potholed.
