This wiki's gonna have the number one meme list for Naruto and Naruto Shippuden! Believe it!Please add entries in the following format:
The meme. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The explanation behind the meme.[[/labelnote]] Explanation Like this.
SASUKE, I'LL SAVE YOU!Explanation Naruto's continuous attempts to force Sasuke to come back to the Leaf Village, even if he clearly doesn't want to, have been interpreted by fans as overly annoying, even because it's actually what the overall plot consists on.
The series' Uchiha clan as being masters of "the Art of Run," a ninja technique that looks suspiciously like running away from your opponents. The meme originated because the ambiguous villain Itachi Uchiha of the clan has on numerous occasions begun a battle and then left the scene after exchanging only a few blows with the series's heroes.
In addition, it has been common to mark members of the villain group Akatsuki for death once they take off their cloaks (which has been accurate for seven of them so far),
"Who in the HELL is Tobi?!ToMaTo?!"Explanation Recent chapters reveal that THE ORIGINAL Madara Uchiha is revived by Edo Tensei, raising questions on WHO IS THE GUY IN THE MASK?More Explanation ToMaTo is a nickname for this guy who could possibly be one of these characters: Tobi, Madara, ObiTo. As of this reveal it is very unlikely to be Madara or Obito as he has two eyes. However...Even More Explanation Then Chapter 599 revealed that Tobi is Obito.
Tobi is (Insert random name for crack theories here)Explanation Yes, at least with Obito or Kagami you can see where they're coming from. But you can now find theories for Rin or even Pakkun. It doesn't even have to be in show anymore. You can find theories about Tobi being Aizen or Barack Obama now.
In the Japanese fandom, there's a whole trend of memes based on QUALITY faces made by characters and a lot of other random things in the series. Starring Kankurou, Sasuke, Itachi, Tobi, those dudes from Kumo, the hawk...
Some backstory: a user on YouTube named "KingNecroPope" (now going by "YOUCANTKILLTHEPOPE") was watching the episode in which Kabuto explained his Ninja Info Cards, and when the BGM matched his lines, it caused him to burst out laughing. He then created the video "MY NINJA INFO CARDS", which was a short Youtube Poop featuring Kabuto repeating the line with the BGM's beat playing in the background to make it sound like a continuous song. Once it got a little popular, "KajetoKun", the one who made "It's over 9000" such a massive hit, discovered the video and asked Pope if he could make his own version, which he allowed. The resulting remix is what most people know of, as it has accumulated over a million views.
Lately it's been something of a meme that anyone covering an eye has a Sharingan (or more rarely a Byakugan or Rinnegan) unless proven otherwise. This also comes with the revelation that "covering an eye" describes like 20% of the cast.
This also applies to persons from other anime.
After Danzo's took his arm out, it seems it doesn't even need to be an eye, it's just anyone covering any part of their body.
With optional Shouldai
SHARING IS CARING.
SASORI, MY MAN!
Itachi also wants you to know that you lack hatred.
And Sai wants Naruto to know that he lacks penis.
And that even your dog is smarter than you.
And that he likes ugly bitches like you.
And also, don't put him in the same group as that gutless little homo (Sasuke).
Sasuke's rapefaces from the latest chapters achieved memetic status fairly quickly.
Naruto's reaction◊ to being forced to swallow a seal frog in chapter 491 quickly became a meme soon after the chapter was released.
JITENSHA!JITENSHA!JITENSHA!Explanation From the 13 ending of Shippuden, which put a catchy yet repetitive song featuring a character, up to and including the episode that ended with severe Mood Whiplash and that character being beaten rather soundly.
Chapter 476: Naruto hyperventilating and fainting.
KakuzuExplanation This stems from a moment on TV Tropes' Naruto thread in the forum, in which someone asked a spoiler-sensitive question, to which multiple people answered within seconds of each other: Kakuzu
"X confirmed for Final Villain"Explanation Who exactly is going to be the final enemy of the series has been the source of heavy speculation and debate for a very long time, and thus the source of more than a few jokes.
Any time Might Guy and Rock Lee have a bonding moment, an unbreakable genjutsu involving a sunset and a crashing wave is created and the image is placed in your mind for as long as you live. This technique is FAR WORSE THAN FREAKINGTSUKUYOMI!!!
Meta-example, the 'Naruto is a gateway anime' copypasta. It's to the point that it became one of the banners in a certain imageboard.
When Itachi finally dies, his face smacks into the wall as he falls to the ground. This has pretty much become a meme of "Itachi Style: Facewall" when something is completely ridiculous.
One joke for the huge amount of Ho Yay between Sasuke and Naruto is that Sasuke is SasuGAY for Naruto.
Chapter 599 brings us these golds:
GETS FRIENDZONED, -insert whatever Tobi did here-Explanation A meme born because of an assumption that the entire reason Obito had his Face-Heel Turn and became Tobi was because he loved Rin, who was already in love with Kakashi. In other words, Rin only thought Obito as her best friend, hence friendzoned..
like the "Tobi is (Insert random name for crack theories here)" meme mentioned above, replacing Obito's face with someone else's on the panels where Obito's face is shown quickly becomes a meme on its own (especially on Tumblr). Be it the real Madara, Naruto, Goku, Aizen, and the list goes on...
"YOU HAD ONE JOB KAKASHI!" or variations of this quote. Explanation Due to the fact that Kakashi failed to protect Rin (which was pretty much the only job Obito entrusted to him), Obito became Tobi, and now the entire world is in the a war fighting for their free will because of it.
Answering every question with "Because you let Rin die."Explanation Rin's death was apparently what caused Obito to become Tobi. People see this as a weak excuse, or at least until the manga reveals the exact manner of how she dies, if anything to make sure it isn't as weak as it seems to be.
Silence! Explanation An again resurrected Tobirama orders to the legendary Hashirama.
Uchihas are biologically emos. Explanation Tobirama'sexplanation of why they tend to become Ax-Crazy .
Everything is Tobirama's fault! Explanation Tobirama mortally wounded Izuna Uchiha, whose death was said to be Madara's start of darkness. Some readers see "his open bigotry towards the Uchihas behind Konoha's political circles prevented Madara from becoming Hokage and drove him to absolute paranoia. Couple that with his later policies that ultimately led to the Uchiha clan massacre and the origins of all Uchiha antagonists can be traced back to this guy". However, other readers note that no one other than Hashirama and Madara wanted Madara for Hokage, as both Madara and Tobirama explained to Hashirama. Tobirama even stated it in the privacy of his own home, though Madara was eavesdropping outside. Tobirama also gave the Uchiha the run of the police force, and a plot of land like every other known clan in the village. Tobirama being blamed for everything regardless of logic is thus the joke.
And also, let's not forget that he was the one who invented edo tensei
Senju DNA is the answer to everything!◊ Explanation A phrase coined by a popular reviewer of manga on youtube. As the story progresses, the extremely potent and viable DNA of Hashirama Senju (the 1st hokage and legendary wielder of the Wood Release) starts to play an increasingly bigger role, to the point where anyone who means business is keen on obtaining some of it, for it is shown to enable characters to achieve unimaginable feats. The phenomenon spawned memes mainly around places such as the Naruto Forums, where members among others wondered whether it could cure AIDS.
After Chapter 644 it has become quite a common joke in some forums to take a picture of something amazing, astonishing and the like and edit a picture of Tobirama under it with him saying "I created it!".
Chapter 663: All hail the mysterious foot!Explanation (spoilers) [[A misterious foot apeared besides a dying Sasuke in the end of the chapter and after two more chapters without revealing who it is the fandom went crazy with Wild Mass Guessing.
Tenten will be the hero of the story.Explanation Considering she's the most minor character and probably the weakest among the Konoha 12 (especially in the manga), many fans joke that she will be the true hero, giving her Memetic Badass status
Similarly, Teuchi, the Ichiraku Ramen guy, is regarded as one, too.
Either that or he's actually the mastermind who has been manipulating all the other characters behind the scenes.
SPOILERS! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!Explanation Kakashi's over-the-top reaction to Naruto dropping spoilers about his favorite book series. Commonly used as a reaction face when someone carelessly drops spoilers in a discussion or post and it only became more and more applicable to Naruto as time went on
Instant awesome just add lotr!Explanation Kishimoto made the color page of chapter 679 with Team 7 as an RPG team and people began fanwanking the ever living crap out of Lord of the Rings crossovers.
