The Franchise/{{Nasuverse}}, being an insanely popular VisualNovel 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, REMEMBER: Memes that don't explain where they came from will be deleted. Even if you think it's self explanatory, there are people who will not get it. There is no such thing as a universal meme.

!!Please add entries in the following format:
* The meme. [=[[=]labelnote:Explanation[=]]=]The explanation behind the meme, if necessary.[=[[/=]labelnote[=]]=] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Like this.[[/labelnote]]
** Further mutations and successor memes, if any.


[[folder:Fate series (except Fate/Grand Order)]]
* Most, but not all, of the following memes [[ are listed on the Type-Moon page]] on Website/KnowYourMeme, and several have individual pages to themselves.
* "[[CaptainObvious People die]] [[ShapedLikeItself if they are killed]]." [[labelnote:Explanation]]From [[ a fansub's]] BlindIdiotTranslation taken out of context.[[/labelnote]]
** Up until that point in the Fate route, Shirou had survived at least half a dozen near death experiences (including being disemboweled, stabbed through the heart, and cut clean through from shoulder to hip) through a magical HealingFactor. However, Shirou then gives up that power [[spoiler:so Saber can use it to stand a chance against Gilgamesh]]. Thus, Shirou is just restating he's fine giving the power up, as he's already more than grateful for surviving more near death experiences than a person would normally ever expect to. People still make fun of Shirou and the BlindIdiotTranslation though.
** [[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} Shiki Tohno:]] "Don't be ridiculous! Dead people can't be alive!"
** Nanako[[note]]from the ''Tsukihime'' quasi-sequel ''Kagetsu Tohya''[[/note]]: "Eh--Th-th-that's ridiculous! First of all, that person doesn't even die when killed!"
** [[Anime/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya Rin Tohsaka:]] "She wouldn't die even if you kill her."
** [[VideoGame/FateExtra Playable Caster:]] "All right! Now that this is all settled, we WILL survive until the end, even if it kills me!"
** [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina:]] "A real man never dies, even when he's killed!"
** [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Renji Abarai:]] "Even if we kill you, you probably wouldn't die."
** [[Manga/DeathNote L:]] "The thing you have to do, is die before getting killed."(Ironically this phase actually makes much more sense given the premises of ''Manga/DeathNote'')
** [[Manga/MahouSenseiNegima 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."
** [[Anime/{{Hamatora}} Nice:]] "I'll kill you if you die again!"
** [[Manga/DailyLivesOfHighschoolBoys Tadakuni's sister:]] "Shut up! If you don't die right now, I'll kill you! If you don't wanna get killed, then die!"
** [[Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear Hibiki Tachibana:]] "Then I'll come back alive, even if it kills me!"
** [[VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3 Maki Harukawa:]] "He's stupid enough to get himself killed, but I know he won't really die."
** [[Film/AvengersInfinityWar Eitri:]] "It will kill you!" Thor: "Only if I die." Eitri: "Yes... that's what... killing you means..."
** [[ Case in Point.]]
* "Just because you're correct doesn't mean you're right." [[labelnote:Explanation]]More oddly-translated wisdom from Shirou, this time from the official sub of the ''[[Anime/FateStayNightUnlimitedBladeWorks Unlimited Blade Works]]'' anime. In context, he meant something along the lines of "just because you've got your facts correct doesn't mean your conclusions are right".[[/labelnote]]
* "[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment The Archer class really is made up of Archers!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another "lost in translation" moment, courtesy of Rin this time. It's a peculiarity of the Japanese language that using pronouns can be very casual and/or rude whereas using a person's name even when directly speaking to them is common. She calls Archer by his "name," but what she's saying is, "You really are an Archer!"[[/labelnote]]
** This evolved into a sarcastic meme in VideoGame/FateGrandOrder regarding the Archer class which has only few actual archers. The sarcasm gets further upon the inclusion of LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai's Asagami Fujino as an Archer-class Servant, yet she doesn't have anything in her to be an Archer (as she doesn't have a bow or any ranged weapons but has her telekinetic ability as her main method of attack instead), and some believes she fits more as Caster or Avenger instead.
* [[Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya "When you have a birthday, you celebrate being born."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Even Shirou's counterpart in the Prisma Illya universe is not immune to making these statements, though he's explaining this to Miyu, who never celebrated her birthday.[[/labelnote]]
* GAY BULGE! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The first anime's dub mispronounced "Gae Bolg", the name of Lancer's Noble Phantasm. Naturally, the Internet had a field day with this.[[/labelnote]]
** [[ Here]] is a fan comic depiction, and [[ here]] is a GagSub depiction.
* "Alright, Shirou! Please put your... that! Y... Your [=pOnOs=]! To my... my... Here! .....My [=vagOOO=]!!! And J.. J... JAM IT IN!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A series of VisualNovel/FateStayNight parody comics makes it a RunningGag that Shirou frequently suffers EntendreFailure when faced with sexual innuendo, and one doujinshi in particular portrays him as ignorant of even basic understanding of the mechanics of sex, requiring this line from Saber. The ''O'''s in the words "penis" and "vagina" are supposed to be circles representing blank-space censorship.[[/labelnote]]
** " lost me." [[labelnote:Explanation]][[ A fancomic by Hiroyuki]], created as a [=parody/response=] to the above, has Shirou say this line in response to Rin and Saber trying to teach him how to perform the act.[[/labelnote]]
---> 1. Put pOnOs (A) to vagOOO (B). \\
2. JAM IT IN! \\
3. ????? \\
4. PROFIT!!!
* [[UnusualEuphemism Recharge your mana.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]][[DeusSexMachina Mana is recharged through sex]] in VisualNovel/FateStayNight.[[/labelnote]]
** [[SexyDiscretionShot LOL dragons. / LOL dolphins. / LOL sperm fish.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Remember that VisualNovel/FateStayNight origins comes from an {{eroge}} of the same name and the anime adaptions of its storylines happen to have BleachedUnderpants. This is how, during two obvious sex scenes... before anything risque shows up, you are treated to a show of a CGI dragon (in the Fate route anime), CGI dolphins (in the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' movie), or CGI fish that resemble sperm (''Unlimited Blade Works'' anime) instead of the scene.[[/labelnote]]
** [[FanNickname Mana Transfer Dragon]], the one used for Saber's scene in the anime, now has its own tag on Danbooru and similar sites.
* Is it OK to be gar for Archer? [[labelnote:Explanation]]Someone misspelled "gay for Archer" and the misspelling stuck.[[/labelnote]]
** GAR. [[labelnote:Explanation]]An adjective describing [[RatedMForManly manly]] characters who become {{Memetic Badass}}es via PerverseSexualLust.[[/labelnote]]
** [[FanNickname GARcher]].
* Mapo tofu. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A scene in ''Heaven's Feel'' when [[VillainsOutShopping Kirei is caught eating the mapo tofu dish]] as if it was his ultimate life goal and somehow [[MundaneMadeAwesome still manages to put Shirou on full guard]]. Even better with voice acting as Creator/JojiNakata goes all the way with panting and "chomp chomp" sounds. This scene is then taken UpToEleven in the first [[Anime/FateStayNightHeavensFeel Heaven's Feel]] Movie. It's also referenced in ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya Drei!!!'' as he runs an ultra expensive Mapo tofu shop.[[/labelnote]]
** [[AdamSmithHatesYourGuts Kirei's rip off store.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Anytime Kirei is selling anything, he will charge ridicious prices for it, infamously the Mapo Tofu he sees in ''Prisma Illya''[[spoiler:and the school uniform you need to get the true ending in ''Fate/EXTRA CCC''.]] [[/labelnote]]
* Unlimited ______ Works. Just fill in the blank with a noun and you can bring up wonders: [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Unlimited Häagen-Dazs Works]], [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Unlimited Musket Works, Unlimited Every Military Weapon Works]], and of course, Unlimited Blade Works. Bonus points if you created a special chant to go along with it.
** The anime is ''Unlimited Budget Works''.
** '''Fill-in-the-blank Archer version:''' [[labelnote:Expand]]\\
I am the [[spoiler:bone]] of my [[spoiler:sword]].\\
[[spoiler:Steel]] is my [[spoiler:body]], and [[spoiler:fire]] is my [[spoiler:blood]].\\

Unknown to [[spoiler:Death]], nor known to [[spoiler:Life]].\\

** '''Fill-in-the-blank Shirou version:''' [[labelnote:Expand]]\\
I am the [[spoiler:bone]] of my [[spoiler:sword]].\\

My [[spoiler:whole life]] was Unlimited [[spoiler:Blade]] Works.[[/labelnote]]
** [[ Unlimited Essay Works.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]An anon claimed that he turned in a page for his final paper of a writing class he was flunking using an altered UBW chant.[[/labelnote]]
*** Did you mean "Bane"?
*** Fall[=/=]Semester Mike.
* "I ask of you: Are you my Master?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]This is mainly the first line EVERY servant states when they are summoned in ALL Fate series. Most notable during Saber's summoning in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and ''LightNovel/FateZero''.[[/labelnote]]
* "This is a war which mucks around with women and children!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the Fifth Fuyuki Holy Grail War, there are six children Masters and three female Servants; it is severely invoked by Gilgamesh.[[/labelnote]]
* Erotical Black Hole. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Popular nickname for Sakura in Heaven's Feel due to her seemingly endless sexual appetite combined with the Great Grail's resemblance to a black hole.[[/labelnote]]
* Being Lancer is suffering. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Lancer class has [[BornUnlucky "E-Rank"]] LuckStat, and this presents itself story-wise as them being horribly shafted. Borrows from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. Surprisingly enough, more than half of the Servants that appear in the Nasuverse have the same rank in Luck, with only a few exceptions like Arturia Pendragon or Alexander the Great.[[/labelnote]]
** By the end of ''LightNovel/FateZero'', it's become "Being everyone in ''Fate[=/=]zero'' is suffering." [[DownerEnding Because there's not a good end for ANYONE.]] [[TheBadGuyWins Except Gilgamesh.]] (Unsurprisingly, both ''Fate[=/=]zero'' and ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' have the same writer, Creator/GenUrobuchi).
** Being Lancer is wonderful. [[labelnote:Explanation]]As of [[LightNovel/FateApocrypha Fate/Apocrypha's]] release, this has taken a complete 180, since both of its Lancers, Vlad the Impaler and Karna, are respectively [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking the strongest member of Black Team]] and [[StoryBreakerPower one of the single most overpowered characters in the entire franchise]], theorized to be able to take on [[PhysicalGod GILGAMESH]]. Lancer of Black ends up like every other lancer, though.[[/labelnote]]
* [[ DR. GILGAMESH]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Gilgamesh's infamous "heart surgery" scene in UBW triggered a lot of "heart"-related jokes.[[/labelnote]]
* [[BadassBoast KING OF HEROES, DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH SWORDS?]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A paraphrased/liberally translated version of Shirou's line in the Unlimited Blade Works route when facing off against Gilgamesh.[[/labelnote]]
** Mongrels! Those swords are fucking patented! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A flanderization of Gilgamesh's interaction with Shirou and Archer. Brought up in the CharacterDevelopment Cliff Notes style of the Unlimited Blade Works route.[[/labelnote]]
** Ha! Know your place, ''[[CatchPhrase mongrel!]]'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Gilgamesh has a habit of referring to everyone else as "zasshu", which is usually translated as "mongrel" in English.[[/labelnote]]
* [[ Rejoice, Emiya Shirou]]/Yorokobe, shounen! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Kirei Kotomine's line towards Shirou at the start of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' has turned into a memetic CatchPhrase for the priest.[[/labelnote]]
** With the advent of VideoGame/FateGrandOrder, this meme evolved to something akin to [[VideoGame/KantaiCollection Naka-chan drops everywhere]], due to Black Keys Craft Essence dropping pretty much in every 10-roll quartz gacha.
* Kirei's jogging in ''LightNovel/FateZero's'' eighth episode has reached a memetic status among the fandom.
* [[GratuitousJapanese WAGA ARU G.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Lancer consistently refers to Kayneth with "''waga aruji''", or "milord".[[/labelnote]]
* Team [[{{Netorare}} NTR]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A FanNickname for team Kayneth, referring to how Sola-ui falls in love with Lancer. Said Lancer being Diarmuid Ua Duibhne, who's entire legend is also NTR, shouldn't have come as a surprise.[[/labelnote]]
* [[ProductPlacement KFC]] [[FunWithAcronyms a.k.a.]] [[spoiler:[[BlackComedy Kayneth's Fried Circuits]]]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Kayneth was hit by [[DepletedPhlebotinumShells a bullet of Kiritsugu's Mystic Code]], shorting his Magic Circuits and - if he uses too much magic - raising the possibility of blowing out his body with overloaded prana. Too bad he had been doing exactly that.[[/labelnote]]
** This was followed up when someone [[ photoshopped Kayneth's face onto the KFC logo]]...
*** ...which in turn was followed by [[ an actual KFC employee, with Lancer's face shopped over his own, posing with red and yellow brooms[=/=]mops in each hand representing Diarmuid's dual spears]].
** On a related note, there is the fandom's ''other'' nickname for Kayneth: [[spoiler: Fast Wheels]].
* [[ MOU IKKAI!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A cute little endlessly repeating animation featuring the song ''Sakuranbo'', with the lyrics "mou ikkai"/"one more time".[[/labelnote]]
* [[GratuitousJapanese Yuetsu!]]! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Japanese word for "pleasure", alternatively translated as "joy" or "entertainment"; one of the plotlines involves Gilgamesh making Kirei realize what exactly the source of these things is for him. It's probably a result of the frequent use and the HoYay that comes with it that made it into a memetic word among the fandom.[[/labelnote]]
* Ancient Hindu Spaceships! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Mutated form of the ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' Ancient Egyptian Laser Beams meme when referring to Gilgamesh's flying ship in ''LightNovel/FateZero''. Yes, it's at least grounded in true myth in the Literature/{{Ramayana}}.[[/labelnote]]
* Happy Mother/Father/Children's Day, Kiritsugu![[labelnote:Explanation]]Fate/Zero had episodes that aired on Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Japan's Children's Day. In said episodes, Kiritsugu is forced to kill his adoptive mother, (Grail-created versions of) his family, and his childhood friend, respectively.[[/labelnote]]
* '''UNLIMITED BUDGET WORKS''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]With Ufotable adapting the full-length UBW anime and piggybacking off of the immense financial success of Fate/Zero, the animation in UBW was set to be very, ''very'' well funded.[[/labelnote]]
** '''HEAVEN'S FUND''' or alternately, '''HEAVEN'S BUDGET'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]With Ufotable also adapting the ''Heaven's Feel'' movie trilogy and taking into account the studio's reputation for high quality animation plus the budget they've earned from the UBW anime itself, people have been dead set on calling the adaptation of the third route this. Now that the first movie's out, fans everywhere all agree that Ufotable outdid themselves with the [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome animation this time]], with them even going so far as to say that it ''[[UpToEleven managed to surpass UBW's animation in quality]]''.[[/labelnote]]
* [[SarcasmMode Historical Accuracy]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Due to the very system of the Grail calling upon copies of the heroes of all times to fight, many have some characteristics distinct to their mythical or historical depiction. Though plausible with some characters of the original VN, other entries in the franchise took it to its logical conclusion.[[/labelnote]]
* ''(Insert violent sequence here)'': [[ (IT'S) MORE FUN]] [[ IN THE PHILIPPINES!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] It's a reference to both one of the Philippines' old tourism slogans, and the revelation that Alimango Island, where Kiritsugu's StartOfDarkness took place, is an actual location from that country. Needless to say, a number of Filipinos couldn't resist.[[/labelnote]]
* [[LoveAtFirstSight HIGH BAR]][[labelnote:Explanation]] Rin and Sakura first fall in love with Shirou by watching him try to vault over a bar from the wrong side, not giving up despite trying and failing for hours. It's thus become common to have girls fall madly in love with him in crossovers or any other form of fiction just by jumping over a bar. [[Manga/StrawberryOneHundredPercent It has been done before, though.]][[/labelnote]]
* [[Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya DON'T THINK!]] [[ IMAGINE!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Illya sums up how magical girl powers work. Often used by fans as a Hand Wave concerning any breaks in logic.[[/labelnote]]
** [[ IMASINE!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The original airing of the episode misspelled "Imagine". The [[BetterOnDVD DVD release fixed this]], but not before the Internet ran off with it.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Tohsaka's anus.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] A...[[{{Narm}} particularly memorable line]] from the H-scene in the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' route, seen [[ here, along with a selection of other narmtastic Nasu quotes]] (NSFW). This line is one of the several usually trotted out to support "Nasu can't write sex" as seen above.[[/labelnote]]
* TOHSAKA PLEASES OLD MEN FOR MONEY! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Originating from a {{Doujinshi}} where Rin does [[{{Squick}} just that]], this phrase is posted in almost every Fate thread on [[ImageBoards /a/]].[[/labelnote]]
* 2017: The Year of Fate. [[labelnote:Explanation]] With the announcement of the first Heaven's Feel movie, Part II of the ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' mobile game as well as it's US release, ''VideoGame/FateExtellaTheUmbralStar'', anime adaptations of ''Grand Order'', ''VideoGame/FateExtra'' and ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'', and an anime movie for ''Anime/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya'' all being released at different points in 2017, fans have proclaimed that 2017 is a great time to be a Fate fan.[[/labelnote]]
* Mama Shirou. [[labelnote:Explanation]]This line inevitably gets used in some form in any fanwork where Mordred ends up meeting her "father" Artoria and Shirou when the latter two are [[FanPreferredCouple together]]. It really ups in hilarity when one remembers that Shirou pretty much is the "wife" in the relationship with his skills at [[MasterChef cooking]] and housework.[[/labelnote]]
** [=MamaMIYA=]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]An extension of "Mama Shirou" to Shirou's future counterpart, Archer EMIYA. Frequently seen mothering all the Servants in ''Grand Order'' fanworks, including ones he normally hates.[[/labelnote]]
** Queen Shirou. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Taking the idea of Artoria and Shirou being together to its logical conclusion, since Artoria is the King of Britain, the other Knights of the Round Table often refer to Shirou as the new "queen".[[/labelnote]]
* "Hey, that's Hell you are walking into." [[labelnote:Explanation]]A phrase uttered by both Shirou and Archer while the former remembers that his wish to save others was his from the start in Episode 20 of ''Unlimited Blade Works''. Normally used whenever someone discusses heroics or ideals (or ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' and its gatcha and grindiness).[[/labelnote]]
* [[GratuitousEnglish COOL!!/SAIKOU NO COOL!!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Uryu likes to sprout that phrase for witnessing something horrendous, and Gilles caught on, what with his plethora of EldritchAbomination. Hence, this phrase usually accompanies any witnessing of abominations that would make Gilles/Uryu jump in joy and admiration.[[/labelnote]]
* Boys to MEN.[[labelnote:Explanation]] The franchise's habit of showing its manliest heroes as borderline adorable children/teens in their younger years (save Waver, who is an adult) has not gone unnoticed. The series artists tend to play to this rule just as often out of canon as within-- see Azusa and Murabito's April Fools jokes for example. It even extends to the dual nature of Charlemagne and Karl der Größe in ''VideoGame/FateExtellaLink'', where fans percieve the former to be the latter's "lily" variant.[[/labelnote]]
* Iskandar is "DUDE".[[labelnote:Explanation]]Well, for one thing, he's a [[BigBrotherMentor total bro]]. The meme may have originated earlier, but in any case, in a [[ scene]] in ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'', Waver's remarks to his absent friend were subbed/dubbed rather oddly as, "Heroes are those who do things driven by their ego. Like you, dude."[[/labelnote]]

[[folder: Fate/Grand Order]]
* [[MemeticBadass Sasaki Kojiro, Savior of France]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The fact that Sasaki is one of the two best cards for the French part of the game (said map is infested with Rider-class dragons, which Assassin-class Servants do extra damage against) has led to its reputation in the Fate/Grand Order fandom as the Savior of France.[[/labelnote]]
** [X] is [[BadassBoast just a bigger swallow]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Kojirou's Noble Phantasm refers to cutting down a swallow mid-flight. Replace X with anything from the aforementioned dragons to end-game bosses.[[/labelnote]]
** REGEND [[labelnote:Explanation]]Sasaki Kojiro's interlude was named this before they corrected the spelling.[[/labelnote]] After he's defeated and seemingly killed during the Moon Festival event, one of the choices for the PC to say is "LEGEND OF SAMURAI" in Japanese. Nasu was having a blast while writing this.
* [[MesACrowd The Cu Chu train]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A team in Grand Order using only Cu Chulainn in various forms, as he has four separate and very popular summonable versions.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/FateGrandOrder David is a shitty parent.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]][[spoiler:After the revelation of Solomon being in control of the Ars Goetia demons the protagonist has fought thus far, these kinds of jokes have been quick to surface about how Solomon's aim to doom the future spawns from David being a bad parent. Even TheReveal that it's not the real Solomon but the demons themselves controlling his corpse and the real one is actually very much a NiceGuy still doesn't stop the jokes from coming.]][[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/FateGrandOrder Rin and Shirou's children.]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Given that the design of the male and female protagonist was based on a genderflip of Rin Tohsaka and Shirou Emiya respectively, the fandom quickly made jokes of the protagonist being the child of the latters, or children if both the male and female protagonist are present. This was partially due to the game being released after the end of the ''[[FateStayNightUnlimitedBladeWorks Unlimited Blade Works]]'' anime -in which Shirou and Rin are romantically involved- and also due to Rin's route being the only one where Shirou could have any potential children.[[/labelnote]]
* Black Keys [[labelnote:Explanation]]The way ''Grand Order'''s gacha is set up, most of the time you will be pulling out Craft Essences instead of actual Servants, Black Keys being one of the most common and least useful.[[/labelnote]]
** Saber Gilles [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Servant equivalent to Black Keys, as he isn't considered very good or useful.[[/labelnote]]
* Unlimited Maintenance Works[[labelnote:Explanation]]''Grand Order'' had a rocky start to say the least; during the first five day after its release, the game was only online for HALF of that time.[[/labelnote]]
** 48 hours [[labelnote:Explanation]]The longest period of maintenence so far, which has become rather infamous[[/labelnote]]
** "So, what happens when the maintenance is over?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A comic featuring [[Manga/SpaceAdventureCobra Cobra]] talking about the end of server maintenance. Has since mutated with [[Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya Chloe]] and the female protagonist saying the same thing. "You don't know? That's when maintenance begins."[[/labelnote]]
* Fate/Hunger Games Simulator [[labelnote:Explanation]] One of the pass-time activities that players engage in while waiting for the game to go online again[[/labelnote]], which naturally has led to its own share of memes:
** [[ Emiya picks flowers]]
** [[ Father of the year]]
* Spook! [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the 10-pull mechanic in the gacha, one of the cards will be guaranteed a 4* and above. But they didn't specify if it is a Servant or a CE, so when rolling for featured Servants during rate-ups, getting a 4* or 5* Servant when the orbs turn gold or rainbow only to find out that it wasn't the Servant you wanted is called getting spooked in Reddit, since it usually means that you pretty much lost your chances of getting the featured 5* Servant and wasted your quartz. Bonus points if they still got the 5* Servant in a later card after the 4* Servant was obtained in the same 10-pull.[[/labelnote]]
** Don't spook me Kirei [[labelnote:Explanation]]The standard prayer/good luck chant before drawing cards from the gacha.[[/labelnote]]
* Unlimited Reroll/Waifu/Husbando/Jeanne Works [[labelnote:Explanation]]A common practice among ''Grand Order'' players is that restart (reroll) the game in order to get the Servant you want, Jeanne in particular being VERY sought after thanks to her fantastic stats.[[/labelnote]]
* EX/C/E Rank Luck. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Due to the random nature of rolling for Servants and low drop rates for valuable items, players cite the Luck stat from Servant character sheets. EX is great, C is decent, E is terrible.[[/labelnote]]
* Protect their smile [[labelnote:Explanation]]An old 4chan meme, used in this context when a Servant reaches their final ascension, due to [[WhenSheSmiles the happy expressions]] that they (usually) give upon reaching their final stages. Usually accompanied with a screenshot of said final ascension and happy expression.[[/labelnote]]
* [[ X is good civilization.]] [[ Y is bad civilization]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Attila wishes to destroy all civilization except for dango after eating some during the Mid-Autumn event, declaring it to be good civilization. Eventually, 'Good/Bad Civilization' became the fandom go-to phrase for declaring 'Desirable' or 'Undesirable' things.[[/labelnote]]
* "Fuck off Reddit." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Someone on 4chan datamined the gacha used for the guaranteed 5 star servant and pasted a slightly transparent sign saying "Fuck Off Reddit" on it because of a perception that a reddit poster was claimed the anon's datamine. [[WhatAnIdiot Said reddit poster took the bait and posted the datamine as it is]] and appropriately made fun of. Japanese posters, who are also looking info in 4chan, found it and started typing the letters out in English without understanding what they were and wondering if the gatcha was real or not. After that, every leaked pictures of new events/Servants have this label.[[/labelnote]]
* Saber Lily's crotch blasting Noble Phantasm. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Her animation for Caliburn targets the enemy's crotch.[[/labelnote]]
* [[Webcomic/OnePunchMan One Buster Man]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Due to the fact that, in early content and events, sufficiently leveled Berserkers can take out pretty much any enemy in one Brave Chain (if not one Buster attack), fanart would compare them to Saitama and his infamous OneHitKill punch. Unfortunately, this died off some time after later content started introducing enemies that wouldn't go down with one chain from a Berserker, relegating the class to a collective CrutchCharacter.[[/labelnote]]
* OMAE JA NAI!! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Roughly in translates in English as: "Not You!!" For Saber Wars, when the rate-up summon are the popular and very strong units, Saber Alter and Nero, players instead get a gold Saber card that turns into Siegfried. This then combined with Siegfried's own memetic ''sumanai''.[[/labelnote]]
* Fionn, you've changed. [[labelnote: Explanation]]Fionn's design in ''Grand Order'' is ''radically'' different to the one he had in ''LightNovel/FateZero'', which lead to a lot of jokes from confused fans who didn't get the reference to a legend that was fairly obscure outside of its native Ireland.[[/labelnote]]
* Super High School Level Heroic Spirits. [[labelnote: Explanation:]] Edmond Dantes was revealed to be drawn by ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'''s main artist Rui Komatsuzaki, sporting a design that bore an eerie resemblance to [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 Nagito Komaeda]]. Many fans ended up wondering what Komaeda was doing in a ''Fate'' series, to which Nasu himself [[ responded]]: "Were you expecting a mere [[Anime/{{Gankutsuou}} Cavern King]]? Too bad! He was a Super High School-tier Heroic Spirit instead!" When Komatsuzaki was called upon again to draw Cleopatra, fans started drawing the pair participating in a Chaldea Killing Game. [[/labelnote]]
* I've become a mom. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The reaction of many players after summoning Jack from the gacha. This is because Jack calls her master (or anyone that nice to her), no matter what gender, as "mommy".[[/labelnote]]
* ISKANDER WHEN? [[labelnote:Explanation]]A common reaction from some players every time a new batch of Servants is released and Iskander wasn't on the list. The Fate/Zero collab cashed in all the hype that people had for him. To make it worse, he's the only limited Servant of the event.[[/labelnote]]
** The meme then transformed into SEMIRAMIS WHEN? Or ACHILLES WHEN? [[labelnote:Explanation]]They're the fan-favorite Apocrypha characters currently unavailable in the game. Achilles has been expected for a long time as he makes a non-playable cameo in Alexander's interlude and his two rivals (Hector and Penthesilea) are already in the game. With Semiramis, it's become a common joke that she'll appear after an Amakusa gacha, a reference to her love for him. Or alternatively for both, when Apocrypha ends airing in Japan and receives a collab event. Semiramis' version is now a DiscreditedMeme when she became the focus for Valentine 2018. The Achilles version became discredited as well once he finally became playable during Fate/Apocrypha collab event.[[/labelnote]] Or BERSERK ATALANTE/ATALANTE ALTER WHEN?[[labelnote:Explanation]]After the airing of Episodes 21 and 22 of Apocrypha, the demand for an 'alternate' Atalante after using her other Noble Phantasm, Agrius Metamorphosis, gets a rise. This one also became discredited, as Atalanta Alter is being released along with the first Lostbelt chapter.[[/labelnote]]
* FGO chibis. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A lot of people are very fond of posting Servant chibis in the style of ''Learn With Manga!'' while posting in imageboards. The April Fools event just made the chibis even more popular, since now, there's official chibis for everyone.[[/labelnote]]
* Wait, and hope. [[labelnote:Explanation]]This quote from Edmond Dantes is always used whenever discussing rolls and future events/Servants. Dantes' VA (Nobunaga Shimazaki) posted a tweet of his NP 5 Dantes with the caption "Roll, and hope", spreading the meme further.[[/labelnote]]
* Angra Mainyu. [[labelnote:Explanation]]This loved, ultimate JokeCharacter was secretly added to the Friend Point gacha during Fate/Accel Zero Order resulting in almost all players trying to roll him and was jokingly suspected as the reason of lots and lots of server lag and a record five maintenances for the game. And to rub salt in the wound, it's possible that his roll rate is even smaller then any of the SSR Servants' roll rate. All the Evils of the World indeed.[[/labelnote]]
* Drawings of Helena. [[labelnote:Explanation]] One chapter of ''Learn More With Manga! FGO'' has the protagonist commissioning Leonardo Da Vinci for a drawing of Helena Blavatsky under ''very'' strict (and suggestive) specifications, much to Da Vinci's chagrin. Since then, this has become a minor meme, and lots of players (along with some of the game's artists, including her character designer Matsuryuu) actually drew Helena under said specifications.[[/labelnote]]
* The Lancer Curse. [[labelnote:Explanation]]There are staggeringly high amount of players without a golden-rarity Lancer due to the difficulty of acquiring them, since most of them are either limited exclusives or story-unlocked; to put this into perspective, there are currently at least six gold-rarity Sabers able to be summoned anytime. Some unfortunate players eventually started to jokingly attribute this to Lancer's generally poor luck stat, though some players used this as an excuse to use the longtime fan-favorite Cu Chulainn...''then'' jokingly [[ButtMonkey blame their luck on him.]][[/labelnote]]
* It's a bait. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Several times DW releases a "suspicious" gacha with fan-favorites or awesome Servants, making some players blow all their quartz on the gacha ... and despairing afterwards when DW announces a new gacha/event with even more awesome Servants.[[/labelnote]]
* Another crossover meme with Theatre/AStreetcarNamedDesire: Arash's Noble Phantasm [[SayMyName Stella, the Lone Meteor]].
** Music/ManWithAMission also has a song named "Stella".
* Mary's reaction in the "Chaldea Summer" CM to the ball going her way first being a smile as she tries to hit it and then surprise as it gets too close and hits her in the face became an ImageMacro for players' disappointment in the game.
* Noble Phantasms that involve RapidFireFisticuffs are often a nod to ''JojosBizarreAdventure'', starting with Beowulf's '''"ORA ORA ORA"''' (Jotaro), Xuanzang (with Saver as her Stand), and Saint Martha's '''"ROAD ROLLA DA"''' (DIO, with Tarrasque as the Road Roller). [[AscendedMeme Wouldn't you know it, one battle in the Nero Festival 2016]] [[ features the three of them together]], also a nod to ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage''.
* DW hates dudes. [[labelnote:Explanation]] With many of the 4* and 5* servants composed mostly of girls and that Medb's exhibition round punishes you for using male servants, some people have come to this conclusion.[[/labelnote]]
* The outfit that Mash wears in the "Dangerous Beast" CE is often put on other characters, both male and female, by fan artists. Most of the art, especially the ones of female characters, tend to be very NSFW.
** This has been a ongoing theme for Halloween. One of the exclusive CE's for the Halloween event will feature artwork by the doujin circle [=ReDrop=] similar to the "Dangerous Beast" outfit [[note]]which was for 2016's event[[/note]]. Prior to it, for 2015's event, there was the "Halloween Princess" [[note]]which featured [[LightNovel/FateZero Irisviel Von Einzbern]] in a [[HornyDevils succubus guise]][[/note]]. For 2017, there is "[[{{Stripperiffic}} Trick or Treatment]]" [[note]]featuring [[Characters/FateGrandOrderBerserkers Nightingale]][[/note]]. They all tend to get popular around fan artists rather quickly.
* Smile protected. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Building off the wider "don't you want to protect that smile?" meme that gained popularity with many anime fans, once Mash protects ''your'' smile with her HeroicSacrifice and your heroics in turn inspire a certain character to defy reality and save her from death, you two share a moment outside Chaldea for the first time where she gives you a beaming smile. The threat is over for now and the smile has been, in fact, protected.[[/labelnote]]
* You need a catalyst to summon X. [[labelnote:Explanation]]In Fate lore, you must provide some item that has a connection to your targeted Servant to summon them (i.e. Rin's pendant for Archer EMIYA, Avalon for Altria, etc). So players have joked that if they provide a catalyst, they will be able to summon their targeted Servant. The items used can be anything like a manga/doujin/action figure of a certain Servant, going to their place (Chateau d'If in France for summoning Dantes) or even Servants themselves to summon someone they know (i.e. Hassans in a party for King Hassan).[[/labelnote]]
** Using mayonnaise to summon Hijikata. [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of the most famous Hijikata depictions in Japan is ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'''s Hijikata Toshirou, a weirdo with an incredible fondness of mayonnaise. So when DW releases their own version of Hijikata as a limited Servant, this joke crops up a lot, especially if it's actually successful.[[/labelnote]]
** Similarly, use an Eyecon to summon Musashi[[labelnote:Explanation]]The TV series Series/KamenRiderGhost has a collectable item which contains the soul of Musashi within the series (similar to the Class cards of Series/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya) which can be bought in real life. Thus, people have joked that the vessel of the soul of Musashi would be extremely effective in summoning her.[[/labelnote]]
** Alternatively, people have used [[ this]][[labelnote:Explanation]]From the same TV Series, the main's character's soul was used to catalyse Musashi's summoning, so people have reasoned that his catchphrase (which he repeats at the beginning of every episode) would also catalyse Musashi's summoning in the game.[[/labelnote]]
** Using Touken Danshi to summon Nobunaga and Okita. [[labelnote:Explanation]]With the popularity of ''VideoGame/ToukenRanbu'' and the common practice of depicting a sword with any series' version of their masters, fans using Touken Danshi to summon their masters is a common sight. In this case, many use Heshikiri Hasebe to summon Nobunaga and Yamatonokami Yasusada to summon Okita.[[/labelnote]]
* Tristan in Extra (CCC). [[labelnote: Explanation]]He's the only bonus Servant for the event without any apparent connection with CCC. Cue confused reactions from Japanese players. Tristan even trended on twitter on the day the CCC event details were announced![[/labelnote]]
* Berserker can't be defeated -- he's the strongest man in the world! [[labelnote: Explanation]]This line comes from Illya in the UBW route ("Basaka wa dare ni mo makenai -- sekai tsuyoi ichiban da kara!") and is typically quoted whenever a player has Heracles thoroughly trash powerful bosses like Goetia by ''himself''. Demonstrated [[ here.]][[/labelnote]]
* Nasu's still got it. [[labelnote: Explanation]]This appears whenever story content written by Nasu concludes and fans are left very satisfied with the story, be it the emotional aspect, epicness, or jokes inside.[[/labelnote]]
* Altria. [[labelnote: Explanation]]This interpretation of ''F/SN'' Saber's real name was quickly laughed at when seen in promotion for the US version of the game and the game itself, due to it being what Google Translate spits out when fed the Japanese character for Saber's name. Despite it being what Type-Moon apparently wanted, most people from the West prefer using Arturia or Artoria. Just try saying "Altria Alter" with a straight face.[[/labelnote]]
* My homies / MLG Marie. [[labelnote:Explanation]]When one of Marie Antoinette's story responses was translated to [[TotallyRadical "Whassup, my homies?"]] players were quick to associate MLG memes with her.[[/labelnote]]
** Kirakira [[labelnote:Explanation]]Translates into 'Shining', this is also a phrase by Marie (when using a Skill) that is often associated with her, and also combined with the above. Example: "Kirakira, my homies!"[[/labelnote]]
* Frankie's "Daddy". [[labelnote: Explanation]]During the "Dead Heat Race" summer event, Fran manages to co-operate with Archer of Shinjuku (of all people) by calling him "papa". His response gave way to fanart of him fainting over the sight of Fran being cute.[[/labelnote]]
* Grail for Love. [[labelnote: Explanation]]Given the limited rarity of Grail RareCandy, much debate is on just who just gets grail ascended. While there are a few characters who are useful in a spreadsheet sense, the general accepted answer is that you grail the character you love to play.[[/labelnote]]
* Skip NP when? [[labelnote: Explanation]] Some fans are just not into the Noble Phantasm animation sequence. It's even acknowledged in ''[[ Learning with Manga]]''. When this issue was brought up to the developers in [[ an interview]], their response was basically HahahaNo. The closest we get to this feature is Bunyan's NP that only has 2 seconds of animation.[[/labelnote]]
* ONORE ONORE ONORE ONORE!! [[labelnote: Explanation]]Gilgamesh's grunt of pain after something seriously painful (eg: a Noble Phantasm) is oft-quoted by many to curse at something that didn't go their way.[[/labelnote]]
* Sitting EX [[labelnote: Explanation]]Yagyu Munenori's skill animation involves him kneeling, then getting up again. Because of his good skillset for burst damage, many have called his animation "Sitting EX" [[/labelnote]]
* Sumanai. [[labelnote: Explanation]]Siegfried's low TierInducedScrappy status was pretty much legendary and not only [[FanNickname the phrase is used to describe him]], it's also used as a way to 'spook' people who drew 4-5 star Sabers only to be revealed to be Siegfried. The Interlude buff, while not enough to make him a decent standalone Saber, actually made him at least servicable or showing combo potential with other Servants (some Servants like Fionn is usually considered on an even lower tier than him). But [[NeverLiveItDown people have a hard time forgetting his sucky days]] that 'Sumanai' is still going to stick.[[/labelnote]]
* [X] Santa Lily. [[labelnote: Explanation]]After the sheer adorableness that 2016's Christmas event brought with the introduction of Jeanne Alter Santa Lily, many fans took it upon themselves to make Santa Lily versions of their favorite Servants in the hopes that the next year might make one of them real.[[/labelnote]]
* Genderbent Chaldea. [[labelnote: Explanation]] The sheer amount of genderbent female Servants appearing in Chaldea had some fans wondering about an event where these Servants unexpectedly turn into their historical counterpart's gender. While some versions have the Masters try to reverse the curse, others fully embrace the change and turn this new Chaldea into a [[YaoiGenre BL]] or [[RomanceGame Otome]]-styled facility.[[/labelnote]]
* Swimsuit Nitocris. [[labelnote: Explanation]]Nitocris' Swimsuit Assassin alt has amassed a ridiculous amount of memes, thanks primarily to the Medjed disguise she puts on in her earlier levels. The meme lasted well into the Halloween season and beyond, with Nitocris still wearing it in order to use it as a makeshift ghost costume, or use it as a blanket in the winter, or just because she doesn't feel like taking it off.[[/labelnote]]
* ONE RIDER GEM [[labelnote: Explanation]]In celebration of the upcoming Winter Festival in 2017, a special log-in bonus courtesy of Ozymandias... in a form of a single Rider Gem. Needles to say, the utter randomness of it made the whole thing go viral.[[/labelnote]]
* [] CEO [[labelnote: Explanation]]Penthesilea, Queen of Amazons, being an 'Amazon CEO' isn't just her FanNickname, it also made her the target of [] spoofs, like being made to deliver Amazon products, or when said product is [[ to instantly kill you.]][[/labelnote]]
* It's definitely [[LightNovel/FateApocrypha Semiramis]].[[labelnote: Explanation]]Semiramis fans on Reddit who've been waiting for Semiramis's availability in the FGO gacha have latched on to the idea that ''all'' the characters from the upcoming ''Cosmos in the Lostbelt'' chapter are her ([[ even when they aren't Servants and/or clearly not her]]). Even after she becomes available as the featured Servant in the 2018 Valentine's Day event, the meme lives on.[[/labelnote]]
* What's [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Lusamine]] doing here?[[labelnote: Explanation]]Brynhild's similarity with Lusamine in both looks and love problems inevitably will make the uninitiated who saw Brynhild for the first time to mistake her as Lusamine's lookalike or sister, if not outright [[FanNickname nicknaming her as such]][[/labelnote]]
* Part of Medusa's reworked animations include her making her signature crouching pose during her Extra Attack. However, the positioning makes it so that when she's not at the front of the party, she'll be doing it right in front of party's leader, most cases close to their crotch. It's common to see various screenshots of this with multiple characters.
** Sherlock Holmes's Extra Attack animations include closely examining and [[FingerFraming hand-framing]] enemies. [[ This is]] [[ also]] [[ exploitable]].
* Stheno the Useless Goddess[[labelnote:Explanation]]Usually Medusa is the Gorgon Sister that got ridiculed and bullied by being called 'useless' or sorts. Not in the player's case, since both Medusa and Gorgon range from decent to very useful, while Euryale is very useful, and Stheno... is a low-end TierInducedScrappy, so she's the one being labelled as 'useless goddess' in the player's eyes[[/labelnote]]
* Who's this Servant you speak of? I only see a Mana/Rare Prism.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Some TierInducedScrappy servants such as Siegfried ([[pre- and [[NeverLiveItDown post-buff]], Fionn and Stheno often joked as being more useful as Rare Prisms than in gameplay.[[/labelnote]]
* [[RandomNumberGod Gacha]] [[ salt]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]Even though "salty" is pretty popular slang in all sorts of groups, in FGO it almost always comes from the gacha, because it perfectly describes the emotion you feel when all your efforts to roll your waifu result in a bunch of 3-stars and Craft Essences.[[/labelnote]]
* "The king of the Vikings who wields a bloody axe. [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment This is Eric Bloodaxe, the Bloodaxe King.]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Eric "Bloodaxe" Haraldsson's profile in the NA version is mocked for its redundancy.[[/labelnote]]
** Who's that? A new Servant? [[labelnote: Explanation]]Pretending to forget who Eric Bloodaxe is, as he's a generic HornyVikings stereotype otherwise.[[/labelnote]]
* Astolfo the haunted plush [[labelnote: Explanation]](Probably) created by [[ dokodoki]], a stock photo of the Potekoro Mascot Astolfo plush serves as a template for the homosexual-themed memes while being a cursed doll in the same time.[[/labelnote]]
** This actually started by this picture proclaiming to sell [[ a haunted Artoria plush]], which started a trend to do the same to other merchandise of characters.
* Saber buff when? or Instinct upgrade when?[[labelnote: Explanation]]A common yearning of players, especially the fans of Saber Altria to fix her PowerCreep-ed status, especially for an upgrade of her Instinct skill like MHX and MHX Alter got.[[/labelnote]]
* SAVE FOR HER/HIM [[labelnote: Explanation]]Used for whenever a person declares a Servant they're saving all their Quartz for, regardless of what banner comes up beforehand.[[/labelnote]]
* 80% [[labelnote: Explanation]]A meme in which an attack fails to deal crit damage even though it receives a very high crit rate. Also refering to Hans' Lv 5 Noble Phantasm whenever it fails to buff his allies (even worse if it is highly overcharged yet fails to buff both attack and defense).[[/labelnote]]
* [[Memes/JojosBizarreAdventure Another meme bites the dust]][[labelnote:Explanation]]While the quote is from Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable and it can be used in any other places, it's especially potent in ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' due to the tendency of memes getting discredited here and there.[[/labelnote]]
* Avicebron's single finger pointing upwards was found to be hilarious [[ and]] [[ quite]] [[ exploitable.]]
* Kadoc got locked in a trunk and NTR'd. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Anastasia serves as Kadoc's MoralityPet, to the point where his allies are worried that he might prioritize her over their goals. When he's inevitably defeated, his version of Anastasia is killed, and he is captured aboard the ''Shadow Boarder''. The protagonist can then summon a fresh version of Anastasia, who falls in love with them. Fans then imagined [[ Kadoc being forced to listen from the next room as his Servant grows to love the one who destroyed the world he meant to create for her]].[[/labelnote]]
** Such is the fate of Crypters.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Following Kadoc's example, fans have been thinking that the protagonist will do the same to the other Crypters they will inevitably defeat in latter Lostbelts, that their mission is to NTR the Crypters, and unlike Kadoc who can be sympathetic, they probably won't need to feel bad about doing the same to the other Crypters; with some like [[FourEyesZeroSoul Beryl Gut]] being designated as the eventual AssholeVictim.[[/labelnote]]
* Persona [[labelnote:Explanation]]The first Lostbelt chapter introduced the Servants Avicebron, Antonio Salieri and Ivan the Terrible whose designs looks not much different from [[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona post-Persona 3 era Personas]]. Alternatively, it's also used to make fun of a similar situation with 'Altria' with Hundred-Face Hassan, whose NA name is revealed to be "Hassan of the Hundred Persona"[[/labelnote]]
* CameraFiend Anastasia [[labelnote:Explanation]]Based on how Anastasia's last moments in life were basically being the one personally taking photos of herself and her sister, Anastasia is often made to be a CameraFiend who likes to take selfies or photos of others with more modern cameras compared to the ones in her time. Often to tease Kadoc.[[/labelnote]]
** Anatasia under kotatsu [[labelnote:Explanation]]The playable Anatasia has one My Room line if the player has the resident LazyBum Osakabe-hime, asking the protagonist if she can take Osakabe-hime's kotatsu for herself. This leads some fanartists depict her under a kotatsu, sometimes turning into a LazyBum herself.[[/labelnote]]
* How does he fit into a truck? [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ivan the Terrible is one of the biggest, tallest summonable Servants whose debut is after the first Lostbelt... and by that point, Chaldea has been reduced into just one truck (Shadow Boarder). Therefore, fanarts tend to poke fun on how the massive Ivan has troubles to fit himself into the truck.[[/labelnote]]
* Furries!! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The first Lostbelt chapter is filled with Yagas (chimeric people who are fused with beasts) which most of them are wolfmen. One of them, Patxi is very liked for his character.[[/labelnote]]
** Music/ManWithAMission [[labelnote:Explanation]]The wolf men in also remind the fans of this band's wolf mask gimmick. Also, they have a song titled "Stella".[[/labelnote]]
* Welfare Sieg[[labelnote:Explanation]]A lot of players have theorized (and were correct) that Sieg will be given out as the welfare Servant of the ''Apocrypha'' event. Given his very divisive nature among fans, it has become commonplace to joke about burning him for some Rare Prisms even though welfare 4* don't yield any Rare Prisms at all. Though eventually turned around, as [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap the Inheritance of Glory actually makes Sieg acceptable and likable]], so people changed their mind about burning him.[[/labelnote]]
* "I just don't like you for some reason. That's all."[[labelnote:Explanation]]This line is said by Iskandar during the Fate/Zero Accel Order event in response to El-Melloi II demanding to know why he's siding with Kariya and Lancelot over Chaldea, to which El-Melloi can only stare blankly in shock. It quickly became the idea for what Servants who refuse to be summoned by players would say, even if said players spend all their SQ for them and get nothing.[[/labelnote]]
* 10 Saint Quartz [[labelnote:Explanation]]To celebrate the 1,000 day anniversary milestone, [=DelightWorks=] reward players with only 10 Saint Quartz, which the Japanese fanbase responded with anger and mockery noting that previous day anniversary milestones had better rewards such Golden Apples, EXP cards, and even ''rate ups of certain limited 5* servants.''[[/labelnote]]
* [[AffectionateGestureToTheHead Headpatting]] Ushiwakamaru [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ushiwakamaru is... [[BadassAdorable adorable]]. And just in her interlude, she asked the protagonist to pat her head in congratulations of her deeds. Hence, every players seemed to have an urge to pat Ushiwakamaru's head all the time whenever she does something nice or cute.[[/labelnote]]
* Nursery Rhyme saying "Fuck"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Thanks to this [[ comic]] where Nursery Rhyme said 'Fuck' in a complete contrast with her innocence, her particular face there has become a reaction face for saying OhCrap[[/labelnote]]
** Also known as "[[{{Pun}} Cursery Rhyme]]"
* Bullying [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another term for raid bossing. Raid bosses are constantly beaten for their normally-hard-to-get drops and those who died remarkably fast are referred to being "bullied", like Barbatos, Ibaraki-douji (both died in around 3 hours in their events) and lately, Avicebron (died in 2 hours and 40 minutes) and eventually other Apocrypha Servants in the event.[[/labelnote]]
* GenderBender Guda[[labelnote:Explanation]]Because the player can change the main character's gender and portrait at will and at any time in My Room, they're often given this ability in fanworks.[[/labelnote]]
* Darius, 3 years old/Age 3[[labelnote:Explanation]]Darius III was referred as a 3 years old during the first Christmas event (Little Darius, Age 3). Add up with how he's rendered as a ScreamingWarrior, fans started to portray him as more or less a 3 years old mentality-wise behind all those screamings.[[/labelnote]]
* Pantless Chiron[[labelnote:Explanation]]Chiron goes full centaur in his final Ascensions, making him technically pantless. Fans wondered and poked fun of this thinking if Chiron is fine having his private parts exposed to everyone when he is in this form.[[/labelnote]]
* The Promised Day[[labelnote:Explanation]]Achilles' debut was met with fanart of him encountering Penthesilea, who hates him to no end.[[/labelnote]]
* Shinjuku Salter when?[[labelnote:Explanation]]Saber Alter and Jeanne Alter showed up in ''Epic of Remnant'' in new outfits that were met with an overwhelmingly positive critical response from players. Jeanne Alter eventually got hers as an alternate costume for the ''Da Vinci and The 7 Counterfeit Heroic Spirits'' 2018 rerun. Saber Alter, on the other hand, has yet to get hers (many believe that she should've gotten hers during the ''Saber Wars'' rerun just two months after). While not as popular as her Avenger rival, Saber Alter is still very much a BreakoutVillain, so the aforementioned phrase has become an obligatory comment of sorts whenever fanart of her in her Shinjuku outfit is posted.[[/labelnote]]
* Incoming Police Siren[[labelnote:Explanation]]Some Servants may be extremely risque thanks to being designed like TokenMiniMoe characters with {{Stripperiffic}} outfits (most notoriously Jack the Ripper and Shuten Douji) that their mention might be accompanied with police sirens trying to arrest whoever desires them due to child pornography accusation. This is also another reason why Jeanne Alter Santa is nicknamed 'Jailter': It's a loli Jeanne Alter that will get you thrown to jail.[[/labelnote]]
* Chacha Out of Nowhere[[labelnote:Explanation]]The ''GUDAGUDA Meiji Ishin'' event where Chacha is the banner and reward Servant had a surprise re-run and comes unannounced a few days after the conclusion of ''Murder at the Kogetsukan'' mystery event. This unexpected event caught many players off-guard.[[/labelnote]]
* Useless, just like Shinji[[labelnote:Explanation]]Craft Essences featuring Shinji tend to either have increased debuff resistance or increased debuff success rate, which are less than useful attributes to buff.[[/labelnote]]
* Sabers fire beams![[labelnote:Explanation]]Similar to the "Archers don't actually use bows" meme, the Saber class is often joked about being made of Servants who just [[SwordBeam shoot beams with their swords]] instead of fighting in melee with them. The joke got new material when Okita Souji's Alter form (whose NP has a Sword Beam unlike her vanilla self) was implemented in the game as an Alter Ego servant, leading players to treat the class change as a MindScrew; [[InsaneTrollLogic how could a Saber who fires beams not be a Saber?]][[/labelnote]]
* TWO YEARS[[labelnote:Explanation]]The North American version launched two years after the original Japanese version and as it quickly became apparent that the NA version was in no rush to catch up, this quickly became a mantra for people who wanted fan-favorites like Semiramis or Miyamoto Musashi as they had to wait that amount of time for anything new and exciting released in Japan.[[/labelnote]]
* Swimsuit X when? [[labelnote:Explanation]]A common yearning of certain fans to have a summer version of each of their favorite Servants which are yet to get theirs. Even recently released Servants like Semiramis, Anastasia and Okita Alter are not safe from this.[[/labelnote]]
** Male Swimsuit when? [[labelnote:Explanation]]Similar to above demanding summer version of a male Servant like EMIYA and Gilgamesh.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:Tsukihime and Melty Blood]]

This chair. This chair. This chair!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Originated from a scene in the visual novel where Shiki suddenly [[SuperpoweredEvilSide inverts and attacks a chair for irritating him]].[[/labelnote]]
* "Isn't it sad, [[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} Sacchin~]] ;_;" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Originated from Satsuki Yumizuka and her role as the UnluckyChildhoodFriend, misfortune, and lack of a route in the games. Used in general to describe anyone who has been DemotedToExtra.[[/labelnote]]
* [[ "A cat is fine, too."]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Appears in a lot of discussions relating to [[HalfHumanHybrids Half-Human Hybrids]] and the like, as well as variations that replace "cat". The line comes from a doujin by [[Manga/DoujinWork Hiroyuki]] in which a pedophile Shiki insists on trying to have sex with his familiar, who switches to her alternate cat form under pressure. [[BestialityIsDepraved This doesn't stop Shiki.]][[/labelnote]]
** "[[TastesLikeDiabetes SO]] {{MOE}}! [[ I'M GONNA DIE!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Same author, different doujin.[[/labelnote]]
** This exchange:
-->Shit, right?
-->It's shit. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Infamous reaction image from Hiroyuki (again). Specifically, from Shiki looking at an image Ciel is holding that says "Curry + Ass" (referring to her anal scene), but he interprets it as the end result of the digestive system. [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike Nrvnsqr does, too, for whatever reason]].[[/labelnote]]
* [[FanonDiscontinuity "There is no]] [[ Tsukihime anime."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The anime is widely considered to be an example of AdaptationDecay, and complaints are often to the point of wishing it had never been made. While reviewing the anime, [[Website/DesuDesBrigade Arkada]] also said, "This anime doesn't exist. In the same way that some movie sequels and prequels don't exist, this show doesn't exist."[[/labelnote]]
** "Isn't it sad that Anime/CarnivalPhantasm is the ONLY VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} anime?"
* "[[BlackComedyRape Rape the maids.]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]][[Administrivia/DefaultAnswer Standard response]] to the question, "You wake up as Shiki. What do you do?" Mainly stems from a specific choice in the Ciel route where the game interprets "send Kohaku away with your dinner because you don't feel well" into "rape her".[[/labelnote]]
** "[[Manga/FateKaleidLinerPRISMAILLYA You can't sexually harass maids.]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Illya discovers that Miyu works as Luvia's {{Meido}}, Illya suffers CutenessOverload and demands that Miyu come over immediately and in uniform. HilarityEnsues, and [[MagicWand Ruby]] says this line after Illya and Miyu end up in a compromising position.[[/labelnote]]
* "[[InternetBackdraft Shiki can kill Servants. Discuss.]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Shiki (both of them) has the power to kill anything in existence. This power has been in question in the fandom as to whether it will allow Shiki to kill Servants. Arguments over these can get rather heated. Has evolved into "Shiki can kill X", or "X can kill Servants". [[WordOfGod (In case you were wondering, Shiki's eyes don't work on Servants, since his brain doesn't comprehend their existence, whereas "Akasha" Ryougi is directly linked to the Akashic Records, allowing hers to easily work on anything of "Earthly" origins. She's also among the top three strongest characters in the Nasuverse ...]] [[FlipFlopOfGod on a list that doesn't include Servants. And even though she's supposed to be nigh-omnipotent, Nasu said she could only put up a defensive fight against an average Servant. But of course, she could still kill them if she could land a hit on them, which she can't, except she can because]] [[VideoGame/FateEXTRA she became]] [[FateGrandOrder a Servant]] [[BrokenBase ... Yeah]].)[[/labelnote]]
* Brainwashing Detective Hisui-chan. [[labelnote:Explanation]]One typo from a BadEnding (Anata wo hannin desu - You become the criminal. The original line is Anata wa hannin desu - You are the criminal.) lead to the creation of this FanNickname.[[/labelnote]]
** [[AscendedMeme Brainwashing-Detective appears in]] [[AllThereInTheManual at least one artbook]]. The meme is also the basis for Hisui's [[CounterAttack Last]] [[LimitBreak Arc]] in ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood''. She even got her own segments in ''Anime/CarnivalPhantasm''.
* The [[ChickMagnet Tohno]] Gland. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Shiki has a penchant for attracting women for no reason. This is somewhat alluded to in the game; his bloodline repels normal humans but attracts those connected to the supernatural, Arihiko included.[[/labelnote]]
* Suppress Roa in my ass! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A line from a ridiculous sex scene with Ciel.[[/labelnote]]
** [[IkeaErotica BEST LEMON EVER]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]It is undeniable that Kinoko Nasu's works are awesome, but [[FetishRetardant the same cannot be said for his H-Scenes]], which at BEST are full of {{Narm}}. This later was MisBlamed, but by then it was too late, as criticizing his {{Lemon}}s is already memetic.[[/labelnote]]
* YO DIS B ARCADE BUMSTEAD FROM TSUKIHIMAY I'D HIT IT. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A Goofus and Gallant thread on Website/FourChan churned out the phrase, and it stuck.[[/labelnote]]
** Alternatively, Atari Dumbledore from Porkslope Turkeyhandle.
* [[FanNickname Roastbeef Stroganoff[=/=]Strudelberg[=/=]Stringburger]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Riesbyfe Stridberg's name is hard to remember.[[/labelnote]]
* {{PORN WITH PLOT}}. [[labelnote:Explanation]]An old derogatory exclamation that has evolved to refer to eroge and visual novels in general.[[/labelnote]]
* "SUGOI SUGOI!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Fanon states this as Aoko's catch phrase. It comes from ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood'' where one of her attacks has her shouting this. The attack is very spammable, resulting in her shouting "Sugoi Sugoi" over and over.[[/labelnote]]
* Shiki Tohno: Lord of Bedroom Jackassery. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Shiki is a more or less kind dude and relatively well-adjusted despite his sucky life... but he is NOT the gentlest lover in bed. Arcueid? He's far too rough. Ciel? He pressures her into anal though she's not that willing. Akiha? He's a {{jerkass}} to her. Hisui? He behaves better but still teases her too much. Kohaku? He wises up but ''only'' after their first sex scene.[[/labelnote]]
* Tsukihime remake [[DevelopmentHell when?]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Since the day it was announced in 2008, people had been excitedly anticipating the release date of the reboot of the original Tsukihime visual novel and the redesigns and additional info on it Type-Moon posted back then only served to fuel the fire further. However, as of this writing in 2017, absolutely nothing about it has been heard of since, leading to fans continuously spamming this question over and over again whenever it's brought up.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder: Carnival Phantasm]]
* ''[[{{Earworm}} Kimi to isshou ga ichiban~!]]''[[labelnote:Explanation]]the opening line of ''Super ☆ Affection'', Carnival Phantasm's ridiculously catchy OP.[[/labelnote]]
** The song aside, the animation for the OP itself has numerous parodies using characters from other anime.
** Don't forget the ED -- the animation for the ED ALSO has a lot of parodies using characters from other Nasuverse works.
* "Lancer ga shinda!" "Kono hito de nashi!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]"Lancer Died!" "You aren't human!" In practically every episode poor Cú Chulainn is a CosmicPlaything that dies every episode. The lines itself is also based upon the Japanese Dub of {{WesternAnimation/South Park}}, to be more specific [[TheyKilledKennyAgain the gag involving Kenny's deaths]] further reinforcing his status. This can easily be snowcloned in comics whenever a Servant of other class dies hilariously, and then they replace Lancer in that phrase. Example: "Archer ga shinda!" or "Jeanne ga shinda!"[[/labelnote]]
** How to make Cú Chulainn survive: have him not be a Lancer.[[labelnote:Explanation]]The first version of Cú Chulainn that appears in ''Fate/Grand Order'' is him as a Caster, and he proceeds to not only defeat every Servant he goes up against, but even survives to the end of the story arc as the "winner" of that Holy Grail War. Compare this to every other appearance Cú Chulainn has made across the franchise, in which he is a Lancer, but always ends up dying.[[/labelnote]]
* [[ GRAIL/SEIHAI-KUN!!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]It tends to be easy to snowclone scenarios of Grail-kun with varying scenarios of complaining, and Grail-kun dropping a knife as a solution. Especially when there's a Grail-kun cameo.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:Kara no Kyoukai]]
* [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Touko]] is a dirty red [[JustForFun/CandleJack bi-]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Calling Touko "[[BerserkButton dirty red]]" (reminding her that [[SiblingRivalry her sister Aoko]] [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter got the title "Blue" that Touko wanted]]) results in the poster being KilledMidSentence.[[/labelnote]]

* "SUGOI!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another catch phrase for the resident GenkiGirl.[[/labelnote]]

[[folder:Type Moon/Nasu in General]]
* [[IkeaErotica Mollusks]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] [[AuthorCatchphrase Type-MOON works tend to have a strange fixation on mollusks during the sex scenes.]][[/labelnote]]
* Why is there no route for X? [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of the most common discussions amongst fans is calling out the lack of routes for some characters, usually Satsuki and Ilya.[[/labelnote]]
* Mushroom/Mushroom Eggplant/Mushroom Eggplant Wizard [[labelnote:Explanation]]Kinoko Nasu is identical to the pronunciation of "Mushroom Eggplant," hence the nickname Mushroom Eggplant Wizard. This matches Nasu's avatar, a yellow and green mushroom, and mushrooms are often found the spinoff content, such as the Illya's Castle minigame.[[/labelnote]]
