Being around for a few decades, Creator/{{Nintendo}} remains to be a very popular and long-running video game company. So of course, it only makes sense that a lot of their games create popular jokes around the internet. ''Memes/SuperMarioBros'', ''Memes/TheLegendOfZelda'', ''Memes/FireEmblem'', ''Memes/{{Pokemon}}'', ''Memes/{{Splatoon}}'' and ''Memes/SuperSmashBros'' already have their own pages, so keep memes related to those games in those pages.
%%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.

* Various someones have hacked into the ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' games to rip the sound font/instrument used for the singing voice of K.K. Slider, the guitar-playing dog. Here's [[ what that sounds like normally,]] for reference. With the sound font at their disposal, bored people with musical knowledge have gone on to create innumerable "K.K. Covers," doing everything from [[ "Poker Face"]] to [[ "Hare]] [[DancingTheme Hare]] [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Yukai"]] in the roving rover's signature voice. Oh, and since we know you'll ask: Yes, they've done [[ that,]] too.

!!!CD-i Games
* See ''Memes/TheLegendOfZelda'' and ''Memes/SuperMarioBros'' for those.

* Expand dong. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A photoshopped reaction of Donkey Kong with perverted captions attached to it, often made from the box art for ''Donkey Kong 64''. Other DoubleEntendre lines used for the captions in this vein include things like "FEATURE LENGTH".[[/labelnote]]
* HE [[labelnote:Explanation]]Posting pictures of Lanky Kong accompanied by the first word of his verse of the [[VideoGame/DonkeyKong64 DK Rap]], inspired by a series of joke posts where he was discussed and announced as a playable character for ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''.[[/labelnote]]
** HAS
** NO
** HE
** HAS
** NO
** IS A [[PrecisionFStrike FUCKING]] DISGRACE [[labelnote:Explanation]]Common ComboBreaker for threads with this song being sung.[[/labelnote]]
** THIS KONG HAS ELEPHANTITIS [[labelnote:Explanation]]A ComboBreaker in a DK Rap thread on Miiverse that became infamous for how out of the blue it was; a screencap of the thread can be seen [[ here]]. For those who are unaware, elephantitis, or rather elephantiasis, is an actual condition that causes the various regions of the body to swell up to extreme sizes.[[/labelnote]]
* Dankey Kang[[labelnote:Explanation]]A photoshopped ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' image showing a contestant giving this answer to a description of [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]]. The name went memetic and is used in a similar way to corrupted video game characters like [[Memes/SonicTheHedgehog Sanic]], [[Memes/SuperMarioBros Mayro]], Lonk and Petch (see below).[[/labelnote]]

* That [[MostAnnoyingSound dog's laugh]].
** Now that he's coming to ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', people are guessing what the dog is laughing ''at''. [[labelnote:Explanation]]From characters who didn't get in, to people who always say Nintendo is doomed, to the many characters (mostly from Brawl) who aren't returning.[[/labelnote]]

* ''VideoGame/EarthBound'': YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm of Giygas's attack! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The message brought up when Giygas attacks, adding to the MindScrew of the fight.[[/labelnote]]
** Giygas is often mentioned in the comments section of {{mind screw}}y Website/YouTube videos. Mostly the ones that add frames every second or change the audio to G-Major.
*** For a MonsterClown variant, we have [[ the McGiygas.]] You cannot grasp the true form of Ronald's attack!
*** And here's [[ the video spliced into hacked game footage]].
** "Earthbolind" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The "u" in the title screen looks a lot like "li".[[/labelnote]]
** Zoom! Boing! [[labelnote:Explanation]]{{Verbal Tic}}s of Mr. Saturn.[[/labelnote]]
** "Jeff does not exist" and "Who's Jeff?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A RunningGag which started on WebOriginal/slowbeef's livestream playthrough of EarthBound on Twitch. Both slowbeef and the chat became increasingly annoyed at Jeff being useless to the point where they jokingly point out that he doesn't exist.[[/labelnote]]
*** "So, when do you get your third party member?" and "Who's this guy following your only party members?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A running gag started by the chat on slowbeef's Twitch stream. An expansion of the "Jeff does not exist" meme. Even slowbeef got into it titling one of his streams "Only two party members?"[[/labelnote]]
*** Jimmy, James, Jack, Jeb, Jorge, Jerry, Jared, Jessica, Jigglypuff... [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another running gag from slowbeef's Twitch playthrough. The chat intentionally getting Jeff's name wrong and instead using other names that start with "J" (or even random words that start with "J").[[/labelnote]]
*** "The gang's all here! Ness, Paula, and....[[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Bulbasaur]]?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A similar running gag to the above except with replacing Jeff with another random video game character.[[/labelnote]]
*** Ness, Paula, and [[DoubleDragon Bimmy.]]
* The most notable bug during the making of the ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' FanTranslation:
-->Welcome to th
** The Flint used Swing!
** C'MON REGGIE GIVE US MOTHER 3! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Nintendo of America LampshadeHanging the NoExportForYou for the game in the E3 2014 Digital Event. Reggie responds by roasting the StrawFan with a Fire Flower from ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros''.[[/labelnote]]
** "This... can't be happening!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Characters say this to themselves after recovering from the effects of a low SanityMeter[[/labelnote]]
** "''CHARLEMAAAGNE!!''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Holy Roman page boy Anthony desperately wants to save Charlemagne from a sinister plot. Even his death doesn't prevent him from sobbing about it.[[/labelnote]]
** "'''''MAY THE RATS EAT YOUR EYES!'''''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]From one of Maximilian Roivas' magnificent insane rants.[[/labelnote]]
** Needs more Pargon. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Pargon rune is used to empower magick, but due to the game's spellcasting system an upper-tier spell can have four out of its seven component runes be Pargon, turning once-ominous incantations into {{Narm}}.[[/labelnote]]

* "Too bad! You lost your machine."[[labelnote:Explanation]]The HaveANiceDeath message in ''X'' upon falling off the course or your machine [[CriticalExistenceFailure blowing up]].[[/labelnote]]
* "YOU GOT [[NitroBoost BOOST POWER!]]"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Played in ''X'' and ''GX'' when you finish the first lap, thereby granting you NitroBoost privileges. In ''GP Legend'', this is replaced with "You've got a new booster!"[[/labelnote]]

* "Pow pow Picard!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Fans who didn't like Piers's DubNameChange used this as a CatchPhrase.[[/labelnote]]
* Making Kraden a playable character. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The feeble, powerless elderly mentor NPC proved inexplicably popular with fans.[[/labelnote]]
** Kraden isn't a playable character because [[MemeticBadass he's too powerful]].
** [[YouMeanXMas Kradenmas]], the Temple of Kraden, or anything else [[CrystalDragonJesus casting Kraden as a deity]].
* "The Wheat Sword lets out a howl! Dutch Farmer!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]An UrbanLegendOfZelda hoax about unlocking a hidden super-sword and its completely nonsensical super attack.[[/labelnote]]
* Star Magician's [[HehHehYouSaidX balls]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]One BonusBoss summons "ball" creatures to aid it in battle.[[/labelnote]]
* Golden Sun 3 [[labelnote:Explanation]]For a long time it was popular to create hoax box art for Golden Sun remakes or new installments. This ended, of course, with the announcement of VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn [[/labelnote]]
** Golden Sun 4 [[labelnote:Explanation]]Same song, second verse.[[/labelnote]]
* Isaac's sexy beard. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Dark Dawn takes place thirty years after The Lost Age, during which time Isaac developed more rugged features and grew a beard.[[/labelnote]]

!!!VideoGame/KidIcarus (primarily from ''Uprising'')
* In general, the sheer speed with which what should have been major spoilers became ItWasHisSled. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Just look at [[ these videos]] (the main character isn't even supposed to be known about at first).[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}: Uprising'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]This game is one of the hardest 3D shooters in quite some time, especially on the higher [[CallAHitPointASmeerp intensity]] levels needed to [[HardModePerks get major items]]. Not that it's anywhere near as hard as ''Touhou'' actually is, but there are other similarities like the ridiculous dialogue and the looks on characters' faces.[[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:Editor's note]]This meme inspired the wording of the meme potholed to GoodIsNotNice.[[/labelnote]]
* Offbeat lines:
** Ask Auntie Pandora Hour [[labelnote:Explanation]]In chapter 5, Pit asks the chapter boss about her lair. This bit is part of her snarky comeback.[[/labelnote]]
** Pit's singing [[labelnote:Lyrics]]Again today I will go soaring through the sky, / My enemies I'll dish 'em up in a stir fry, / Gracious goddess of light watches from up above, / At dinnertime I always show the cook some love![[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]]Chapter 13 opens with a chipper little melody, and Pit sings the above (not very well) to the tune of the first four lines, the last of which inspired an anime short. After about a minute, though, there's a major MoodWhiplash and DifficultySpike as the chapter starts heavily referencing ''Franchise/StarWars''.[[/labelnote]]
* [[MemeticBadass Magnus for Smash Bros 4]]! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Magnus is overall a genuine badass archetype, a rare thing for Nintendo who keeps things kid-friendly by limiting characters to {{Badbutt}}.[[/labelnote]]
** Palutena confirmed for Smash!
** Dark Pit confirmed for Smash!
* [[spoiler:Dark Lord Gaol]] is a girl! [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]]After defeating Dark Lord Gaol, her helmet comes off. Her voice may have given it away. Because of a meme below, she's also been compared to [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Samus Aran]].[[/labelnote]]
* [[GoodIsNotNice Palutena is a good girl.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Palutena is, at least, not always very helpful, and may be at times actively trying to kill Pit. (or so it seems)[[/labelnote]]
* The [[MostAnnoyingSound Reaper theme]] is now [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic awesome]]. [[labelnote:Explanation (long)]]''Uprising'' remixed just about every theme from the original game somehow, and even used some verbatim in the original 8-bit (such as the Reaper detection theme, game over and credits music). It also gave the [[DemonicSpiders Reapers]] their own chapter ([[FourIsDeath where else but Chapter 4?]]) and KingMook. The air battle for this stage, of course, was where the Reaper theme was remixed. And it didn't stop there, it went on to an epic orchestral section and eventually to an [[AutobotsRockOut epic guitar solo]], ending with [[OminousLatinChanting Ominous Nonsense Chanting]] for the final descent. The land battle theme isn't half bad either; it adds an even longer awesome orchestral theme and mixes in the chanting to make up for the lack of rock guitar.[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{Pun}} Hamazing!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]The CatchPhrase of Thanatos, the final Underworld commander, who has a new humanoid form this time (and for some sophisticated reason spells his name Tanatos).[[/labelnote]]
* Shazammitylam! [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]]In chapter 15, a new character comes along to help you fight off the [[AntagonistTitle mysterious invaders]]. His {{Leitmotif}} is wonderfully narmy, and this is his CatchPhrase.[[/labelnote]]
** I'm now a level infinity ultra epic supergod-plus! [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]]This same character eventually takes over said invaders.[[/labelnote]]
* "Hey look! A Kid Icarus meme!" "Hey look! Who cares?"[[labelnote:Explanation]]An exchange between Pit and [[spoiler:Hades]] in Chapter 15 when Pit spots an Exo Tank. [[spoiler:Hades]] is unimpressed, Viridi and Palutena are confused, and Pit's just happy to find a vehicle. [[/labelnote]]
* Viridi is {{Tsundere}} for Pit. [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]]She starts out actively hating you and trying to kill you, then after you team up against the Aurum and undergo the TimeSkip, she eventually becomes your new mission control, and she's arguably nicer than Palutena, especially as time goes by.[[/labelnote]]
* "What's wrong! All I said was that Komaytos look like little [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Metr]]--" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In this game, Komaytos' resemblance to Metroids is [[AscendedMeme acknowledged]] in that they latch on to Pit and are only weak to certain attacks, namely melee blows. Even the trophy gets in on the fun: "The last Komayto is not in captivity, and Skyworld is not at peace."[[/labelnote]]
* [[SayMyName "Pit!"]] [[spoiler:"Hades!"]] [[SayMyName "Pit!"]] [[spoiler:"HADES!"]] [[SayMyName "PIT!"]] It's on![[labelnote:Explanation]]During Pit's first battle with [[spoiler:Hades]], this is what they first say before the battle. It happens again in their final battle. [[/labelnote]]
* Floor ice cream gives you health! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Uttered by Pit when Viridi questions his habit of eating food off the ground. [[/labelnote]]
* Super Bash Sisters! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A quick joke by Palutena wherein she deliberately misremembered Super Smash Brothers during a conversation with Pit. This became HilariousInHindsight when Smash for WiiU and 3DS was found to have a cast with an exceptionally large number of female Smash participants.[[/labelnote]]

* Kirby likes to dance. [[ And dance.]] Man, that little pink blob likes to boogie, don't he?
** Now in textual form! <(^_^<) <(^_^)> (>^_^)>
** It has also become popular to synch Kirby music to [[Anime/KirbyOfTheStars anime]] footage and audio. The most frequently used songs are "Gourmet Race A" from ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar[=/=]Superstar Ultra'' and "Sand Canyon" from ''Dream Land 3''.
* [[ "It feels like... pants!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]From the intro to ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn'' when Kirby first arrives in Patch Land.[[/labelnote]]
* From the German parts of the internet we have [[ A vocal version of ""Gourmet Race"]], [[ now also available in English]] from the same guy (different channel). EpicFail or StealthParody? You decide!
* [[ "Anon, GET OUT!"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]From a copypasta where the alleged "anon" was actually some kid who walked in on his parents having oral while playing ''VideoGame/KirbysPinballLand''.[[/labelnote]]
* "How can I help you, King Dedede?" "I need a monstah to clobbah that there Kirbeh!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]From the English theme song from Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa. The whole Dedede section ''will'' be quoted on any video involving King Dedede music, no exceptions.[[/labelnote]]
* "What, lil' ol' me a hero? Surely you jestin'!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Dedede's StylisticSuck anime entitled ''Dedede: Comin' At Ya!'' has King Dedede portraying himself as a HumbleHero stopping Kirby who Dedede has portrayed as a giant monster. The Cappies, however, cannot draw and each drawing of Dedede is utterly hilarious.[[/labelnote]]
* "SUCK IT UP KIRBY!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Fumu/Tiff in the anime probably shouts this at least OncePerEpisode. Plus points for Meta Knight also saying "Suck up dis torch!" because it sounds funny.[[/labelnote]]
* [[ "KIRBY'S FUCKING PISSED"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]People took note how AmericanKirbyIsHardcore and this is a resulting fan art.[[/labelnote]]
* "HEH HEH HEH, I AM A SUPA STAR WARRIOR" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In an episode of the ''Kirby'' anime, King Dedede enlists the citizens of Dream Land to create his own cartoon series where he is the heroic Star Warrior and Kirby is his irritating nemesis. The line in question is spoken by Dedede as he flies through space at the beginning of the cartoon. It is frequently used as a username on YouTube bar replacing the word warrior with something else as well as having an image with a similar style and expression to Dedede's OffModel look.[[/labelnote]]
* "He may end up destroying a nearby planet or two, but such is life." [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]]The FinalBoss of ''Planet Robobot'', Star Dream, says this before summoning Galacta Knight as Meta Knight's final test. Given Star Dream's attempt at omnicide in the main game, its casual dismissal of Galacta Knight - even after Haltmann forbade Star Dream from summoning him - quickly became popular.[[/labelnote]]
* Hello Darkness, My Old Friend [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]]A lot of fans were excited to see the return of Dark Matter in ''Planet Robobot''- his swordsman form from ''Dream Land 2'', no less!-, even if it was just a clone.[[/lablnote]]

* ''Mario Party'' destroys friendships.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Despite being a casual party game, people get really competitive playing it, and tempers can flare when the {{RNG}} snatches victory out of the hands of a player who thought they deserved the win.[[/labelnote]]
* '''CHANCE TIME!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]The most infamous and loathed mini-game of the series, where characters randomly gift or swap coins or stars to one another, resulting in large, uncontrollable lead changes.[[/labelnote]]
* Luigi [[WinsByDoingAbsolutelyNothing wins by doing absolutely nothing]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]A series of videos making fun of the ArtificialStupidity of the Easy-level AI.[[/labelnote]]
* "DOH! I MISSED!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Wario's exclamation whenever he loses anything, made memetic by LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys.[[/labelnote]]
* Stupid Sexy Bowser.[[labelnote:Explanation]]In ''Mario Party 3'', one of Bowser's potential poses is ReadyForLovemaking (and it's not a pose restricted to when Peach steps on a Bowser space); again, made memetic by LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys.[[/labelnote]]
* Bowser is a [[DirtyCommunists filthy commie]].[[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Boswer's possible effects, "Bowser Revolution", redistributes coins as eequally as possible between all players. You can thank LetsPlay/TheRunawayGuys for that one, too.[[/labelnote]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Metroid|1}}'': The Wood Beam and Pipe Boots, supposedly items from the hidden level of Warfair. Actually just an UrbanLegendOfZelda used to {{Troll}} new players, which sounds plausible due to the ''huge'' number of hidden, optional items in ''Metroid'' games. With websites like [=GameFAQs=] around the fact that this is a hoax is pretty out in the open, but it's still an in-joke among older ''Metroid'' fans.
** [[ ENGAGE RIDLEY MOTHER FUCKER]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Famous code that removes Samus's armor, glitches the screen and makes Saums unable to leave the first screen. [[GameBreakingBug It may also crash the game itself.]][[/labelnote]]
** JUSTIN BAILEY [[labelnote:Explanation]]Famous password that removes Samus's armor. Led to much speculation as to what it meant, but it turns out it's just a coincidence.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'': "y can't metroid crawl"[[labelnote:Explanation]]After ''Super Metroid'' was released on Wii U's Virtual Console, a lot of people ended up playing the game for the first time and occasionally got stuck. This became a common spoof of the kind of help requests that were posted on Miiverse, particularly people who couldn't figure out how to use the Morph Ball, or escape the area where you obtain the Morph Ball Bombs. Also funny because of IAmNotShazam.[[/labelnote]]
** [[MemeAcknowledgment Acknowledged]] in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros U/3DS'' where the trophy for Varia Suit says that "it lets her morph into a ball instead of having to crawl!".
** NoobBridge[[labelnote:Explanation]]A lot of players get stuck at what is known as the [[TropeNamer "Noob Bridge"]], a section of Brinstar where the player has to cross a collapsing bridge while spikes in the ceiling prevent the player from simply jumping across it. The proper solution is to run--it is the first area in the game where running is mandatory to overcome an obstacle--but many players, especially those coming from newer ''Metroid'' games where there is no run button, may not notice this at first glance unless they looked at the control menu. Nonetheless, the Noob Bridge [[ can be crossed without running]] but it is very difficult.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'': "Science Team has vapor for brains" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A disgruntled pirate log disagreeing with the science team's attempts to tame Metroids.[[/labelnote]]
** "Metroid feeding is strictly prohibited." [[labelnote:Explanation]]A pirate scan wall detailing rules on the utilization of Metroids.[[/labelnote]]
** '''TUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUBES!!!!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Comes from how a number of Pirate bases seem to have an abnormally convenient amount of tubes just perfect for Samus to Morph Ball inside of but the Pirates are unable to make use of. Spawned from a comic in which a Pirate Architect questions his cohort on why they would need to keep placing tubes in their bases. His buddy replies with the meme in question, red eyes aglow. Eventually the architect also ends up brainwashed.[[/labelnote]]
** Unless Admiral Dane approves of it. [[labelnote:Explanation]]''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 3: Corruption'''s CO is more of a MemeticBadass than Adam.[[/labelnote]]
** Soon, everything will be written as a meme, including YOU! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A Phazon-corrupted Ghor proclaims the same fate for everything else in ''Corruption''.[[/labelnote]]
** Hear the words of O-Lir, last Sentinel of the Fortress Temple. May they serve you well. [[labelnote:Explanation]]There's a bug in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 2'' that lets you get to 255% item collection. It involves getting one of the Luminoth Sentienels to repeat their opening line over and over, and O-Lir is the easiest one to use for it.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'': "Remember [[ me]]?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Early line from Anthony Higgs, first heard in the E3 trailer for the game, despite the fact that no one had ever seen him before.[[/labelnote]]
** Manthony Higgs. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another nickname for Anthony Higgs, which perfectly captures his MemeticBadass status.[[/labelnote]]
** Oh, and: "any objections, lady?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]CatchPhrase of Adam Malkovich... which later becomes a SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay moment.[[/labelnote]]
** [[PreAssKickingOneLiner Mother... Time to go.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Samus's final line to Mother Brain back in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' before killing her. If ''Other M'' is to be believed.[[/labelnote]]
** Adam hasn't authorized me to edit this page yet. [[labelnote:Explanation]]''Other M'''s attempt to explain Samus's lack of use of her powerups without resorting to BagOfSpilling... was not well received.[[/labelnote]]
** ''The baby the baby the baby the baby the baby the baby the baby the baby the baby...'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]There is motherhood symbolism in ''Other M''. And Samus's internal monologue won't let us miss any of it.[[/labelnote]]
** "The word he so obviously chose... outsider... pierced my heart." [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Samus' most {{Narm}}y and overly soft and emotional lines in the game, it's also one of the most frequently mocked parts of it.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Ridley's too big.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]He's a lot bigger than Samus... and a lot of people want him to be playable in the ''Smash'' series. He only appears as a boss.[[/labelnote]]
* "[[LetsPlay IT'S A LIVIN'!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The biggest success of LetsPlay/{{Slowbeef}}'s LetsPlay of the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' trilogy (and one frequently referenced in his YouTube channel WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}}) was the AlternativeCharacterInterpretation of Ridley as a put-upon henchman with a screechy New Jersey accent. The above is his CatchPhrase. He is also known for [[IFellForHours falling for long periods of time]] and fits of claw-waving freakoutery.[[/labelnote]]
** "I'm still fallin'!" "WUUUUAAAAHHHUUUAAAAHHHH!!"

* What's an airport, again? [[labelnote:Explanation]]Andy, despite being an accomplished CO in the first ''Advance Wars'' game, has to re-learn the basics all over again in ''Black Hole Rising''.[[/labelnote]]
* Really? Continents? [[labelnote:Explanation]]Also from ''[=AW2=]''; when Sami tells Andy there are other continents outside of Orange Star.[[/labelnote]]
* Flakalakalakalakalaaaaaaaaaaaaaak!
* [[ Battleship. In. A. Lake.]]

* "Nigga stole my bike!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The break sections between circuits in ''Punch-Out!!'' show Little Mac training by jogging behind his black trainer Doc as he rides a bike. MemeticMutation changed the context of the image. Surprisingly, this became an AscendedMeme ([[ThinkOfTheCensors though understandably minus the racial slur]]) in the Wii game, where, between rounds, Doc will occasionally joke that he'll steal Mac's bike.[[/labelnote]]
** Nigga ''earn'' your bike!
* [[ RELEASE THE BOGUS!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]MemeticMutation based on Super Macho Man's "RELEASE THE BEAST!" technique being dodged, interrupting the voice clip with another of his SurferDude lines.[[/labelnote]]
** [[ This video]] seems to have permanently associated Super Macho Man with buses, of all things.
** "Give zem '''ZE UPPERCUT!'''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]This phrase is usually associated with Von Kaiser.[[/labelnote]]

* "Tekitekiteki desu ka?" [[ "Eh!"]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The Ringside minigame in ''Rhythm Heaven Fever'' is particularly well-known, and also led to [[ some]] [[ crossover]] [[ spinoffs]][[/labelnote]]
** "Wubadubaduba s'at true?" "Yeah!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The English version of Ringside.[[/labelnote]]

* "GET BONUS!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Spoken in-game whenever picking up certain kinds of bonuses.[[/labelnote]]
* ''VideoGame/SinAndPunishmentStarSuccessor'': "My blood... [[NarmCharm is on]] '''''[[ChewingTheScenery FIIRRRRREEEEEEE!!!]]'''''" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Spoken by the endboss of Stage 4, Ariana, in the [[ English dub]] of ''Star Successor''.[[/labelnote]]

* ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' brings us Peppy Hare's [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper various over-eager "hints"]]: "[[SpinToDeflectStuff Do a barrel roll!]]", "Use the brake!", "Try a somersault!"
** Do a [[ Google]] Roll!
** ''VideoGame/StarFoxZero'' shows that Peppy's memes are [[ the gift that keeps on giving]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]]One optional mission has you play as Peppy due to Fox being in the Gravmaster in space. Let your imagination fill in the rest if the link doesn't fancy you.[[/labelnote]]
** You forgot Falco's "Hey Einstein, I'm on your side!"
** Wolf O'Donnell's [[PreAssKickingOneLiner "Can't let you do that, Star Fox!"]] has expanded so that Wolf can't let ''anybody'' do ''anything''.
*** "Can't let you brew that, Starbucks!"
*** "Can't let you chew that, Starburst!"
*** "Can't let you view that, Firefox!"
*** [[ THIS!!!]]
** [[MostAnnoyingSound "Fox, get this guy off me!"]] Shut UP, Slippy!
** "This baby can take temperatures up to 9000 degrees!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Slippy in ''Star Fox 64's'' Solar level, made HilariousInHindsight by the [[Anime/DragonBallZ "IT'S OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAND!"]] meme.[[/labelnote]]
** Or any of a number of other lines from that game. ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' is a quote goldmine.
* Mostly for [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom furries only]] and does not appear in any game, but [[ Krystal can't enjoy her sandwich.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Created by a user in [=FurAffinity=] named Cbee, the artist uploaded a beautiful landscape picture... and added Krystal eating a sandwich as an afterthought to Furaffinity's since-removed rule that pictures must contain furry content. It became quickly popular at the website.[[/labelnote]]
* Five Nights at Slippy's[[labelnote:Explanation]]When the March 2016 Nintendo Direct announced a spinoff game called ''Star Fox Guard'', which involves using security cameras to defend a base, many viewers immediately thought of [[Franchise/FiveNightsAtFreddys another camera-monitoring game]].[[/labelnote]]

* Mash A to Protect Earth [[labelnote:Explanation (SPOILERS)]]The game's final Quicktime Event is labeled as such to stop Jergingha's ultimate weapon.[[/labelnote]]

* Diplomacy has failed! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Wonder Red tries to negotiate with the GEATHJERK and Guyzoch whenever possible. It never works, resulting in physical confrontation.[[/labelnote]]

* No ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' examples? Man, what a bunch of jokers! [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of [[TheBigGuy Reyn's]] after-battle quips. Reyn's dialogue in general caught on with the internet quite nicely.[[/labelnote]]

** [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros "Now it's]] [[AscendedMeme Shulk Time!"]]

* [[ Now i'll show you the power of the Banado!]]
* Dunban has a few good ones, as well, like his haiku recital when using [[LimitBreak Blossom Dance]].
--> "Born in a world of strife! / Against the odds, / We choose to fight!"
* Shulk's infinite sandwich.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Due to an animation error, in an early cutscene, Shulk eats the sandwich Fiora made for him ''without leaving any bite marks or affecting the sandwich in any way''. This was ''not'' left unnoticed, and it became so infamous that it was [[AscendedGlitch left]] [[AscendedMeme in]] for the New 3DS version.[[/labelnote]]
* Start looking for a geyser, everyone.[[labelnote:Explanation]]It's impossible for [[BiteTheWaxTadpole American fans]] to take this line seriously when "geyser" is pronounced the way Americans would pronounce "geezer" (i.e. old man).

** [[TonkaTough Made of]] [[MemeticBadass Nintendium]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Nintendo's hardware has traditionally been known for being extremely rugged compared to the competition. Both exaggerated tales and true stories abound about Nintendo hardware surviving abuse that would have totaled rival hardware.[[/labelnote]]
* UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem:
** SET SIDE B [[labelnote:Explanation]]Aside from the internet, this one is otherwise only known in Japan since the Famicom (the original Japanese name for the NES) Disk System was never released in North America or Europe. Many games made for it would more often than not have the players turn the disk over in order to actually play it, although Side A needed to be put in first ("Set" refers to the action of inserting a disk).[[/labelnote]]
*** "B men o setto shite kudasai" [[labelnote:Explanation]]"Please insert [lit., "set"] side B"; the Japanese rendition of the above.[[/labelnote]]
** W A I T [[labelnote:Explanation]]There was in fact loading on a Nintendo console long before the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube (let alone the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}) came along. This happened on Famicom Disk System games.[[/labelnote]]
*** "Omachi kudasai".[[labelnote:Explanation]]"Please wait".[[/labelnote]]
** Now you're playing with power! [[labelnote:Explanation]]This marketing slogan for the NES continued into the first two years of the [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super NES]] era. It was even incorporated into ''Magazine/NintendoPower'' magazine on occasion. It was replaced with "The Best Play Here" around the ''VideoGame/SuperMarioAllStars'' release and then "Play It Loud" alongside ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'', which continued into the early UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}} era.[[/labelnote]]
*** [[UsefulNotes/GameBoy Portable Power!]]
*** [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super Power!]]
*** Get N or get out! [[labelnote:Explanation]]An early slogan for the UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}} that was even incorporated into renewal notices for ''Magazine/NintendoPower'' subscribers.[[/labelnote]]
** Blowing on the cartridge[[labelnote:Explanation]]The NES is ''notorious'' for its sheer unreliability, sometimes requiring removing the cartridge and putting it back in praying that the game will finally start instead of just giving a "blinking screen of death" or worse, garbled graphics or the game freezing about two seconds later. A common piece of advice is to blow on the cartridge's contacts thinking it will clean off whatever's in the way of them, but this can actually make the problem ''worse'' due to the moisture of one's breath making the contacts more suspicable to attracting even more grime.[[/labelnote]]
* UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem: "WARNING! [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil It is a serious crime to copy video games according to copyright law.]] [[AllThereInTheManual Please refer to your Nintendo game instruction booklet for more information.]][[labelnote:Explanation]]This anti-piracy message (along other variants) appeared in Super NES games whenever anyone tried to use cheat devices (e.g.: Game Genie), or tried to copy the game's files to a PC. Some honest gamers have reported being scared by the message when they first saw it (especially if their game didn't have a booklet).[[/labelnote]]
* UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}}:
** ''It's a'' '''''Nintendo SIXTYFOOOUUUR!''''' [[labelnote:Explanation]] [[ A viral video]] of two kids getting [[{{Understatement}} excited]] for getting a Nintendo 64 for Christmas.[[/labelnote]]
* The UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube startup intro [[labelnote:Explanation]]It's become rather memetic to make remixes and parodies of the startup.[[/labelnote]]
* What Creator/{{Nintendo}} fanboys have said about the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS: "[[CashCowFranchise It prints money!]]"
** Someone else made a hilarious picture of this meme in a different light for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3: "[[CrackIsCheaper IT EATS MONEY!]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]This was reinforced by the actual fact that Sony initially sold the [=PlayStation=] 3 at a loss, banking on software sales to break even. The meme gradually fell out of fashion as Sony introduced the slimmer and streamlined second- and third-gen [=PS3s=] that had vastly reduced production costs.[[/labelnote]]
** On the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}: "It still prints money!"
** On the UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS: "It prints money! IN 3D!"
** On the UsefulNotes/WiiU: "It prints money! In HD!"
*** Subverted during the first few years of the Wii U's life due to poor sales (It took them more than 2 and a half years to sell 10 millions units, Sony sold 10 million [=PS4s=] in nine months.) [[ Images]] started to appear depicting the Wii U eating money. This ended once Wii U sales began to pick up after games like ''[[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Sm4sh]]'' were released.
*** When the Wii U's name was announced at E3 2011, references to Ling's VerbalTic in ''Film/KungPowEnterTheFist'' immediately followed.
*** Wii-U! Wii-U! Wii-U! Wii-U! Wii-U! Wii-U! Wii-U! Wii-U! Wii-U! Wii-U! Wii-U! Wii-U!...[[labelnote:Explanation]]When the official name for the system was first announced at E3 2011, some people thought it sounded like a police/fire engine siren.[[/labelnote]]
*** ... will save the Wii U [[labelnote:Explanation]][[ Chalkboard]] listing off each possible action Nintendo could take to turn a corner with the Wii U, striking out each one that doesn't.[[/labelnote]]
* The UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch:
** ______ is cool and all, but I want to hear more about the NX.[[labelnote:Explanation]]In the months leading up to the Nintendo Switch's reveal, Nintendo was infamously quiet about nearly everything about the Switch other than its codename (NX) and a few games. Naturally, fans complained, which reached memetic status when a Twitter bot was created to spam Nintendo of America's account asking for news regarding the Switch.[[/labelnote]]
** The very day the first preview trailer for the Switch came out, people began [[ comparing]] the look of the console's Joy-Cons when attached to the controller bridge to a dog's face; this has led to a lot of jokes and fanart revolving around the Switch being a cute little puppy. The "Switch dog" is an unofficial mascot for the system.
** Awkward translator[[labelnote:Explanation]]The Nintendo Switch presentation was translated into English live by three interpreters. Two of the interpreters were doing OK throughout the presentation. But one interpreter was doing OK at first (''VideoGame/OneTwoSwitch'' segment), then a bit flat (''VideoGame/Splatoon2'' segment), then Creator/Suda51 came up and he totally lost it. Got even worse when Nintendo released a job opening on Twitter for a translator, leading many to believe he got fired.[[/labelnote]]
** The Nintendo Switch Parental Controls trailer, which shows Bowser [[CoverInnocentEyesAndEars monitoring his son's video games]], has also been making rounds.
** ''Click!''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Promotional material for the console open with a distinctive clicking sound effect (mirroring the sound of inserting the Switch into its dock, or attaching the Joy-Cons to the Switch).[[/labelnote]]
** Counting ice cubes.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Nintendo, for whatever reason, introduced the Joy-Cons' HD Rumble feature by showing how it could reproduce the sensation of ice cubes being dropped into a glass, right down to the number.[[/labelnote]]
** There are a number of jokes about how [[CrackIsCheaper expensive]] the console's accessories (and some of its games, and online play) are.
*** [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI BOY, THIS IS REALLY EXPENSIVE!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]An already memetic line resurfaced with an edited screencap showcasing some of the aforementioned pricey accessories.[[/labelnote]]
** Nintendo added the bittering agent [[ denatonium benzoate]] to Switch carts to discourage young children from eating them. [[SchmuckBait Approximately everyone who hears this feels an irresistible urge to perform an immediate taste test.]]
* Nintendo of America's Reggie uttered "My body is ready" during an early showing of ''VideoGame/WiiFit''. It didn't resurface until three years later, when it would become a huge fad.
%%** And then there's "What's wrong with you?"
** At E3 2012, [[MemeAcknowledgment he mentioned it.]] He was talking about the opportunity for fitness with the Wii U, and said that "People laughed, my body was ready" to a chorus of cheers.
** As of recently, he seems to have turned it into his own CatchPhrase of sorts. He mentioned it under the Wii U release at ''VideoGame/NintendoLand'', and later during an ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' video showing a tour of his in-game home in ''Animal Crossing: New Leaf''.
** And again during an interview aired on ''Late Night With Jimmy Fallon''. After being asked on Twitter whether or not he would be a playable character in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' for the 3DS and Wii U, Reggie explained that the decision was not his to make, before coyly adding "But, if he [Sakurai] wants... my body is ready."
** In fact, this meme is even referenced in several Nintendo games, including ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' and [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Bros. for 3DS]].
** This phrase is common when Nintendo fans get hyped before, say, a WebVideo/NintendoDirect livestream.
* At E3 2008, a Nintendo employee named Cammie left a pretty bad taste in all the gamers' mouths due to her overenthusiastic personality about casual games. She even told a personal story on how she broke her wrist when she tried to snowboard. Literally, within seconds, her and and the word "wrist" became memes on several forums.
* A lot of the Nintendo E3 2012 stuff and related events:
** Non-Specific Action Figure [[labelnote:Explanation]]Nintendo's pre-E3 2012 announcement video featured a demonstration of the UsefulNotes/WiiU's capabilities via a nerdy video gamer's struggle against zombies. His only friend (prior to using the UsefulNotes/WiiU) is a bizarre custom action figure that he refers to by the above name. Viewers took a shine to it immediately, to the point of demanding its appearance in the next ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''.[[/labelnote]]
** Zombified Reggie [[labelnote:Explanation]]A demonstration of the Wii U had Reggie making a zombified version of himself. Cue his terrified reaction.[[/labelnote]]
** Iwata holding bananas [[labelnote:Explanation]]A press conference about the Wii U included a clip of Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata holding and staring at a bunch of bananas for a few seconds. This quickly caught notice from the Internet.[[/labelnote]]
*** The fruit/food-holding itself seems to have been made into Nintendo's own joke as of recently: it was later that year referenced by a WebVideo/NintendoDirect, where Bill Trinen would stare at a tangerine, and in yet another Nintendo Direct, a Lego version of Iwata was holding a carrot. And now it has happened again in the recent 3DS Nintendo Direct for Europe, whilst there is no holding, Satoru Shibata does promote the new ''Pokemon Mystery Dungeon'' game by scanning an apple.
** "I feel just like a purple Pikmin." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Quote from Reggie during the Pikmin 3 presentation.[[/labelnote]]
* "Please understand." [[labelnote:Explanation]]A line Satoru Iwata has a tendency to say during Nintendo Directs when something happens that the audience won't like, primarily a ScheduleSlip. It's been mutated into his CatchPhrase. Became especially widespread after the 2013 [[Franchise/Pokemon Pokemon Bank]]fiasco. [[/labelnote]]
** "Please under'''Stand'''." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Some Nintendo fans who enjoy ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' have cracked jokes about Iwata having a Stand. This has become more widespread after E3 2014's Nintendo Direct video with a short, but impressive fight scene between Iwata and Reggie meant to announce more information about the upcoming ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''.[[/labelnote]]
* All hail the UsefulNotes/VirtualBoy. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A short clip from the Nintendo Direct preview for ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'' shows various Miis of Nintendo employees circling and worshipping a giant Virtual Boy.[[/labelnote]]
** What?! [[labelnote:Explanation]]From another clip in the direct, during a dream where a shocked Mii's face says this as it flies off his head, into outer space, and back again. ItMakesSenseInContext.[[/labelnote]]
** [[YMMV/TomodachiLife There's more where that came from.]]
* "My uncle works at Nintendo". The go-to explanation/response for how someone would get insider info on a game, especially if it's obviously fake.
* Don Yamauchi[[labelnote:Explanation]]In YouTube videos of archival Japanese interviews with Hiroshi Yamauchi, the way he dresses, have caused some comments to compare him to a mafia don.[[/labelnote]]
* "Lonk from Pennsylvania"[[labelnote:Explanation]]A streetpass VideoGame/{{Mii}} that looks like a [[{{Gonk}} bizzaro]] version of [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]]. Also joining him is "[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Petch from Texas]]" and "[[Franchise/DonkeyKong Dankey Kang from New York]]" (named after the Dankey Kang meme above). The Lonk and Petch Miis are popular in games that utilize Miis, such as ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'', ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'' and ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''.[[/labelnote]]
* "Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience." [[labelnote:Explanation]] This is at the end of the notes for every system update to the Wii U or [=3DS=]. Jokes relating to horse stables, or an abundance of stability, often ensue. The hacking community also makes fun of the phrasing because they know it really means "we're patching hack exploits. It started to surface again for the Nintendo Switch with the first patch after launch (not counting the day 1 patch) doing nothing but "enhancing the user's experience with improved stability"."[[/labelnote]]
* NintendoHard[[labelnote:Explanation]]Many players who grew up in the late 80's and early 90's fondly remember NES and SNES games being particularly punishing, to the point where Nintendo is the TropeNamer for the NintendoHard trope.[[/labelnote]]
* "WE ARE NINTENDO. WE CHALLENGE ALL PLAYERS. YOU CANNOT BEAT US."[[labelnote:Explanation]]From [[ a particularly bizarre Australian commercial]] for the UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem, featuring a sort of HiveMind of Nintendo villains (including the ''VideoGame/DuckHunt'' dog) proclaiming this.[[/labelnote]]
