Memes / Nasuverse

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.


Fate series (except Fate/Grand Order)
  • 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 if they are killed." Explanation 
    • 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 Healing Factor. However, Shirou then gives up that power 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 "Blind Idiot" Translation though.
    • Shiki Tohno: "Don't be ridiculous! Dead people can't be alive!"
    • Nanakonote : "Eh—Th-th-that's ridiculous! First of all, that person doesn't even die when killed!"
    • Rin Tohsaka: "She wouldn't die even if you kill her."
    • 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!"
    • 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!"
    • Hibiki Tachibana: "Then I'll come back alive, even if it kills me!"
    • Maki Harukawa: "He's stupid enough to get himself killed, but I know he won't really die
    • Case in Point.
  • "Just because you're correct doesn't mean you're right." Explanation 
  • "The Archer class really is made up of Archers!" Explanation 
    • This evolved into a sarcastic meme in Fate/Grand Order regarding the Archer class which has only few actual archers. The sarcasm gets further upon the inclusion of Kara no Kyoukai'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.
