The Nasuverse, being an insanely popular Visual Novel franchise and having a penchant for crazy, awesome, and badass situations, also happens to be a pool of huge memes generated by its fandom.
Please add entries in the following format:
- The meme. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The explanation behind the meme, if necessary.[[/labelnote]] Explanation
- Further mutations and successor memes, if any.
- Most, but not all, of the following memes are listed on the Type-Moon page on Know Your Meme, and several have individual pages to themselves.
- "People die when they are killed." Explanation
- More to the point, it's because Shirou doesn't. The Fate route has Shirou take mortal injuries at least six times, including being disemboweled, stabbed through the heart, and cut clean through from shoulder to hip, and his Healing Factor keeps him alive. He says this as he decides to give that power up so Saber can use it to stand a chance against Gilgamesh. What he was actually saying is that people are supposed to die when they're killed, so losing the power isn't a problem. Doesn't stop people from making fun of Shirou for this though.
- Arcueid Brunestud: "Don't be ridiculous! Dead people can't be alive!"
- Nanako: "Eh—Th-th-that's ridiculous! First of all, that person doesn't even die when killed!"
- Playable Caster: "All right! Now that this is all settled, we WILL survive until the end, even if it kills me!"
- Kamina: "A real man never dies, even when he's killed!"
- Renji Abarai: "Even if we kill you, you probably wouldn't die."
- L: "The thing you have to do, is die before getting killed."(Ironically this phase actually makes much more sense given the premises of Death Note)
- Asuna Kagurazaka: "I've been always worried about when he would get injured, of if he would get killed... But now he won't die even if "he" is killed."
- Nice: "I'll kill you if you die again!"
- Case in Point.
