->''"SETTLE IT IN'' SMASH''!"''
-->--'''Announcer''', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0G9-DwU2fI North]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKEsviMNOLI American]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4SalDG__nY commercials]] for ''Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS''

''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' has a tendency to create [[MemeticMutation memes]].
----
[[AC: The whole series]]
* '''"SUPAR! SMAAAAAAAAAAAASH BROTHERS![[labelnote:Explanation]]What the LargeHam announcer says after the game's opening cinematic.''[[/labelnote]]
** ''''"MAYYYYYYYLAYYYYYYYYYY!"'''
* '''Warning! Challenger Approaching!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]This screen appears when the player faces an unlockable character. People tend to Photoshop characters they would like to see in Smash Bros. and put them in these screens with the words and their silhouette shown.[[/labelnote]]
* '''TVTROPES CONFIRMED FOR BRAWL''' or '''TVTROPES joins the Brawl!'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Based on character introduction trailers for ''Brawl'' and the 3DS / Wii U games, particularly the latter where the character's portrait is shown along with their name and a quip about them entering battle, such as "Videogame/{{Mega Man|Classic}} Joins the Battle!" or "[[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Rosalina & Luma]] Launch into Battle!" Used as both wishing for a certain character to be included as well as a joke about the massive number of available characters.[[/labelnote]]
** Naturally, the newcomer intros are also done with various other characters. [[http://imgur.com/a/9G906 As seen here.]]

[[AC: Characters]]
* [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Captain Falcon]], the series' resident FountainOfMemes. Hell, some consider his memetic status on par with that of real life memetic badass People/ChuckNorris:
** [[CallingYourAttacks "FALCON PUUUUUUNCH!!!"]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Captain Falcon's neutral special move in all four games so far. Arguably the most famous meme in the game.[[/labelnote]]
*** So famous the ''F-Zero'' anime [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wa5OkdP3-r8 included it]] in a [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome spectacular]] HeroicSacrifice.]]
*** Also popular are vids showing what happens when two of [[DivideByZero them]] [[EarthShatteringKaboom collide]]
*** '''[[Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily FALCON]] [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2008/10/27/96-captainfalconplayspoker/ BLUFF!!]]'''
*** So famous, even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkbA8KGRoNw the game itself]] [[AscendedMeme references it]].
** "YES!!!!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]What Captain Falcon says after successfully performing his up-B attack, Falcon Dive.[[/labelnote]]
** Show me ya moves![[labelnote:Explanation]]Captain Falcon's (badass) taunt.[[/labelnote]]
** [[{{Mondegreen}} SHOW ME YOUR BOOBS!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]One of Captain Falcon's taunts has him saying, "Show me your moves!", but either because he couldn't be heard clearly because of the accent, or because players really were [[FreudWasRight that immature]]... yeah, it was kind of inevitable. It is probably the series' best-known taunt.[[/labelnote]]
*** Show me a MOOSE!
*** From the Japanese fandom: Shoyu Mousse!![[labelnote:Explanation]] "Shoyu" means "soy sauce".[[/labelnote]]
** Captain Falcon punched Chrom so hard he fell out of the roster.[[labelnote:Explanation]]In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diS8AnL3xqs Lucina's reveal trailer]], Chrom is knocked out behind her, and Captain Falcon easily has Lucina herself on the ropes before Robin steps in.[[/labelnote]]
* Ike's "I FIGHT FOR MY FRIENDS"[[labelnote:Explanation]]What he he says during his victory pose.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlHLzdAkeGU I ALSO DO CRACK AND HEROIN.]] *[[Website/SomethingAwful awesome]]*
** As well as "RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANDOMASTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!"
** GREAT! AETHERRRR!!! (or as they say in Japan, '''[[{{Mondegreen}} I! HATE! YOU!]]''')
** [[https://38.media.tumblr.com/d51eb46c997dfc87dfe2e509394bebbc/tumblr_n8tnxerLVo1s8chaxo1_500.png I Fight For My]] Series/{{Friends}}.
** Ike isn't immune to this in Japan either. Thanks to [[http://www.smashbros.com/wii/en_us/gamemode/etc/images/etc01/etc01_080307_011-l.jpg this snapshot]] from the official ''Brawl'' website, it is a common joke in the fandom to superimpose a doughnut on Ike's face.
** Also in Japan, one of his VoiceGrunting clips, sounding like something along the lines of "nunn!", was also very popular, and chances are any given ''Brawl'' related NicoNicoDouga video with him will have him say this (if not, at least include a [[TrademarkFavoriteFood meat]] joke) somewhere. In a similar vein but to a lesser extent, Link's Kiai screams.
* ''SonicTheHedgehog'': "YOU'RE TOO SLOW! [[TooSlow YOU'RE TOO SLOW!]] [[MostAnnoyingSound YOU'RE TOO SLOW! YOU'RE TOO SLOW!...]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Sonic's side-taunt in ''Brawl''. Spammed endlessly by players that [[FragileSpeedster dash across the stage and can't be hit]].[[/labelnote]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPXy7MTiv9I&feature=youtu.be Even Tails decided to get in on that meme]], [[WesternAnimation/SonicBoom albeit six years later.]]
** "'''[[SuperMode NOW I'LL SHOW YOU!!!]]''' '''''[[{{Kiai}} HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!]]'''''"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Sonic shouts the first phrase upon activating his [[LimitBreak Final Smash]], Super Sonic. He then continuously yells the second phrase during the Final Smash.[[/labelnote]]
*** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rxAXiRcI4w#t=5m38s NO, YOU WILL NOT!]]"
*** "NOW I'LL SHOW YOU-'''''DAMN IT!!!!"'''''
** The other taunt, "COME ON! STEP IT UP!" gets this a lot too.
** Within the Sonic boards, Winning Steak (based on a misspelling of "owning streak").
** Also, Sonic was once considered the fifth-worst character in the game. Now a handful of players are calling for a move to high tier. And ''justifiably so'' (YMMV).
*** Related: the "miracle at MLG", in which two of Sonic's best players got fifth and sixth at a major ''Smash'' tournament.
** ''Almost the entirety of Sonic being in Brawl'' is a meme in and of itself. Certain parts of the Smash {{Fandumb}} and the Sonic {{Hatedumb}} are at arms with this, and pretend to be in disbelief to Sonic's inclusion in the game, combined with the unexpected success Sonic players have achieved in certain tournaments, as well as the rising of his [[CharacterTiers tier]]. All layered with the above memes as reasoning.
** "Sonic Speed!"
* Marth[[DudeLooksLikeALady (a)]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Many people noticed Marth's incredibly {{Bishounen}} appearance, certain feminine animations, and the fact that he wears a tiara.[[/labelnote]]
** His white costume looking like a wedding dress.
** All HilariousInHindsight now that he has a DistaffCounterpart in Lucina. Leading to many jokes about her being more manly than him.
** From Robin and Lucina's reveal trailer, the "No, you'll get it today" subtitle at the end became memetic around the Japanese fanbase, often used to mock other characters who didn't become playable.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMw8B6VIaKM&feature=related Mr.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CHMuXNtOSE&feature=relmfu Game]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YR8N504iYAE&playnext=1&list=PL69949F73FD8B1152&feature=results_video &]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htvN_0vsXH0&feature=related Watch]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVHl4y28ouE&feature=related CLEARLY]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5d9GBQ5xU48&feature=related Cheats]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBFC2qO3Jac&feature=related At]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41Jb9_sO9C4 Brawl]].
* The [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Villager]]'s constant smile and soulless eyes have made the fandom deem him CuteAndPsycho. It doesn't help that even his reveal trailer seems to hint that there's a mean streak behind the carefree face. His [[DissonantSerenity unsettlingly happy smile]] and gleam in his eye has been interpreted in [[MemeticMolester many]] [[AxCrazy horri]][[MemeticBadass fying]] [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/creepy-animal-crossing-villager ways]].
* TALK SHIT GET FIT[[labelnote:Explanation]]The WiiFit Trainer was... not exactly everyone's first choice for Smash newcomers. With the help of her introductory trailer, though, she's becoming a bit of a MemeticBadass (with a side of {{Memetic Sex God}}/{{Rule Thirty Four}}), almost to Falcon levels. [[http://imgur.com/gallery/tHBX2 Macros]] started appearing not six hours after her reveal.[[/labelnote]]
** I'm going to make you fit... INTO A COFFIN.
** Visualise your ideal body... BAG.
** Your ideal heart rate... IS ZERO.
** Some women just want to watch the world burn... [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking calories.]]
* Numerous pics have been made joking about how Lucario and [[http://38.media.tumblr.com/a82b9b6a54fa3736877b4c6f38475d0d/tumblr_n3qjvusIQX1r90e4wo1_500.jpg Greninja were chosen over Mewtwo]] for Smash Bros. 4.
** Greninja fights with Mewtwo fans' tears.
** Most of this is now HilariousInHindsight with Mewtwo's reveal as a DLC character.
* After Ike's new, ''Radiant Dawn''-based appearance in the fourth game, plenty of jokes have been made about how he has bulked up since Brawl.
** He is usally grouped up with Mega Swampert from [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]] and Knuckles from [[WesternAnimation/SonicBoom Sonic Boom]] due to the similar buffed up appearances. In Japan, fans often like to jokingly call him "Gorilla Ike"
** Wii Fit Trainer has taught Bowser and Yoshi how to stand upright and made Ike, Knuckles and Swampert buffed up.
** [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants I WAS A WIMP BEFORE ANCHOR ARMS! NOW I'M A JERK AND EVERYBODY LOVES ME!]]
** Only exemplified by Ike's already memetic status in Brawl. [[http://i.imgur.com/b2s9Kbs.png?1 Case in point.]]
** Some time during E3, people have encountered a bug on the smash bros website where instead of the three revealed characters (Mii Fighters, Palutena and Pac-Man), the challenger approaching messages display [[http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2014/162/5/0/super_smash_bros_wii_u_3ds_web_site_glitch_3_ikes__by_gsvproductions-d7lww76.jpg 3 Ikes!]]
* I hope you enjoy my good friend Shulk :)[[labelnote:Explanation]]The Gematsu leaker, who had previously gotten the majority of his predictions correct, positively said that Shulk would be revealed for an at-the-time upcoming announcement. The reveal in question then proceeded to turn out to be Robin and Lucina, which cast the credibility of the remainder of his leak into question. The phrase was then used to mock people who wanted/thought Shulk would be in, until ''he really '''did''' get in'', at which point the phrase was used triumphantly by Shulk fans.[[/labelnote]]
* [[AscendedMeme Now it's Shulk time!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Based on the already memetic "Now it's Reyn time!" from [[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} Shulk's game of origin]], this is the first line he recites after his official confirmation in his trailer. His ridiculously British accent does not help.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiofJ0_5Sb4 "I'm really feeling it!"]][[labelnote:Explanation]]When Shulk said "I'm really feeling it!" in his reveal, people thought his line was [[{{Narm}} awkwardly hilarious]] and already made many jokes about it.[[/labelnote]]
** "I'm really verb-ing it!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Variations of the above quote were not uncommon.[[/labelnote]]
** [[SpongebobSquarepants Are you feeling it now,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIYpmf7Db6c Shulk?]]
*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKwgeK_M4CQ Patrick, that's not a ride.]]
* One of Shulk's lines in Japanese, "Odayaka desune"[[labelnote:Explanation]] roughly: "It's fine, isn't it?" [[/labelnote]], also seems to be building popularity in the Japanese fanbase.
* "This is the Monado's power!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Another taunt from Shulk, generally used by people describe a great play or fail on a Shulk player's part. Like his other taunts, made more amusing by his British accent.[[/labelnote]]
* Shulk is just a photoshopped Little Mac.[[labelnote:Explanation]]When the 4chan leaker posted a screenshot of the roster, its detractors claimed that Shulk's portrait appeared to be a shopped Little Mac, as their faces were turned at the exact same angle and their eyes were almost exactly the same. Now that Shulk has been revealed (and it turned out that the "photoshopped" portrait was real), pictures featuring Shulk are often sarcastically claimed to contain a "shopped Little Mac".[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://i2.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/820/946/7d7.gif "That's So Shulk"]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Comparing Shulk to Disney's Raven, who is also known for seeing the future, is not uncommon, especially since they have visions in a similar way to each other.[[/labelnote]]
* "Roy is in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS™/Wii U™!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]A NamesTheSame joke that implies that Roy from ''Fire Emblem'' is returning, when the Roy in [=3DS/WiiU=] is actually Roy Koopa. Alternately, the not-really-Roy presented is sometimes Marth with a PaletteSwap in Roy's colors instead of the Koopaling.[[/labelnote]]
* "You ain't no air-fighter, Mac." [[labelnote:Explanation]] Taken from one of Doc Louis's quotes in Little Mac's introductory trailer, this is used to make fun of Little Mac's ineffectiveness at attacking in the air, or sometimes to point out the irony if he does manage to beat someone with an air attack.[[/labelnote]]
* Robin, the [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Avatar. Master of All Four Elements]][[labelnote:Explanation]] In Palutena's codec about Robin, she starts out with "That's Robin-also known as the Avatar." Replace Earth with Nosferatu and give them a water bottle and (s)he's got the bases covered.[[/labelnote]]
* Where's Meta Knight's sword?[[labelnote:Explanation]] One of the nerfs Meta Knight got in the fourth game is reduced range in his attacks, to the point where some people joke that he doesn't have a sword.[[/labelnote]]
** Looks like Meta Knight borrowed Roy's sword for Smash 4. [[labelnote:Explanation]] In Melee, Roy also had animations that didn't match up with his hitboxes.[[/labelnote]]
* Little Mac jumping off the edge of Final Destination.[[labelnote:Explanation]] In 4, inexperienced players would often use Little Mac on For Glory mode. They would often accidentally use the Jolt Haymaker (Mac's side special) to leap off the edge of Final Destination, killing themselves in the process.[[/labelnote]]
* Hoo! Hah! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Born at Paragon 2015 where a member of the crowd [[ForcedMeme kept shouting it]] whenever Diddy would use a dthrow>uair combo. Well-known player Hungrybox (who plays Jiggs) got so irritated with hearing it that he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB-6oRB4ABo ragequit]], forfeiting the set.[[/labelnote]]
* Ganon[[http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/904/342/893.png dunk]]! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Ganon in Smash 4 has become notorious for his use of flame choke to perform [[http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/851/687/3fe.gif Ganoncide]] . In Brawl on last stock behavior, it was unpredictable whether he won, lost, or sudden death occurred. Cut to Smash 4 on last stock behavior and he always wins! [[/labelnote]]
** Ganondorf, King of Disrespect! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Ganon got his nickname as the "King of Disrespect" because he's slow but hits hard. This means playing him requires precision and hard reads. Also, since he is a Falcon clone, his playstyle naturally lends itself to looking flashy, much like he is disrespecting his foes. His ability to Ganondunk and gain an easy KO on an opponent who lets him do this also contributes to the disrespect.[[/labelnote]]
* FIYER! LEEEAAANNNDMAAASSSSTUUUURRRRRRRRRR! [[labelnote:Explanation]] Fox's [[VideoGame/StarFox64 "new"]] voice in ''Smash 4'', provided by Mike West, has been subject to SnarkBait, with many players thinking that he sounds too dorky and annoying for someone as {{Badass}} as Fox [=McCloud=]. [[/labelnote]]
* After Pac-Man's reveal, it became common among some Japanese Miiverse posters to have him conjure up various items; this soon led to him conjuring sprites of unconfirmed characters like Ness with the aforementioned "No, you'll get it today" subtitle (which in Japanese read more like "not really").
* For whatever reason, {{Film/Shrek}}/[[Manga/DragonBall Goku]] in Smash.

[[AC: Competitive]]
* "[[ComplacentGamingSyndrome No items]], [[VideoGame/StarFox Fox only]], [[AbridgedArenaArray Final Destination]]."[[labelnote:Explanation]]A jab at tournament-level ''Super Smash Bros.'' (''Melee'') players, who generally turn off items to avoid random elements, keep up on character tiers ([[VideoGame/StarFox Fox and Falco]] typically being top-tier in ''Melee''), and play only a subset of available stages to avoid unfair advantages or more random elements--Final Destination is often a favorite due to being a featureless flat plane. These efforts at making the ''Super Smash Bros.'' series more [[CompetitiveBalance balanced]] for TournamentPlay are dismissed by some players as taking the fun away from the game. Note: The phrase is a snowclone of the unrelated horror movie's tagline.[[/labelnote]]
** "Final items, no only, Fox Destination!"
** As of the 3DS and WiiU ''Smash'' games, No Items and Final Destination have achieved AscendedMeme status, in the online multiplayer mode For Glory. In contrast, For Fun mode enables most features, but explicitly bans Final Destination.
*** For Glory Mode, Fox only! [[labelnote:Explanation]]This variation has started to pop up as well.[[/labelnote]]
*** '''BOWSER''' of all characters has been subject to the long running meme as of the SDCC 3DS tournament where, you guessed it, quite a few competitors used the King of the Koopas due to how much more agile he is in the fourth game.
** [[http://i.imgur.com/Ve5cntc.jpg Ike fights for his friends.]]
** [[http://31.media.tumblr.com/50a74ec1b26d746d33ca269790b245c7/tumblr_n8i2vjH2gi1qeosmfo1_1280.png For Freedom.]]

* No Johns[[labelnote:Explanation]]A term meaning "no excuses" made up by a small group of ''Melee'' players after their friend of the same name ''Melee'' player who was known for making up reasons for why he lost. As the ''Melee'' community grew and the group kept using it as an in-joke, it gained popularity.[[/labelnote]]
** This one got a small revival in 2014 after Reggie included it in a speech he made for EVO, though it apparently fell into disuse in the meantime as there were some half-joking comments asking why Reggie didn't like people named John.
** Officially an AscendedMeme as a randomly generated nickname in Smash 4.
* '''[[CharacterTiers TIRES DON EXITS!!]]'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]One fan's (poorly spelled) objection to the insistence that each character can be put into a specific tier.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qR6sxFBm1P8 TIERS ARE 4 QUEERS!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pD_imYhNoQ4 WOMBO COMBO!!!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]during a 2v2 match, SS (Fox) and Tang (Falcon) took out Lucky (Fox), and got Zhu (Fox) to his last stock. The two defeated Zhu by performing an extremely difficult and fast combo from zero percent to death in ''FIVE SECONDS''. This managed to impress the commentator [=HomemadeWaffles=], and the combo is considered one of the best in all of pro Smash.[[/labelnote]]
** That ain't Falco!
** GET YO' ASS WHOOPED!
** MY DICK HURTS!
** Look at that Up Smash! And now Up - Uh-oh, poor Zhu!
** OH! OH! OH! WHERE YOU AT?! WHERE YOU AT?!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcWLT8a6iqk For Glory Mac Mode.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Short after release, Little Mac being fairly simple to use and perfect for final destination, became one of the most used characters on For Glory mode (and by consequence, one of the most hated).[[/labelnote]]
* TOURNAMENTS![[labelnote:Explanation]]Meta Knight's broken-ness has become a meme among the Smash community, prompting people to make numerous memes about him and his unbalanced-ness, since the only characters able to beat professional Meta-Knight players are: [[CaptainObvious Meta Knight]] and ''possibly'' characters from the tier below Meta Knight, and he's also one of the very few characters in Smash history to have a tier level to himself.[[/labelnote]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6vqWxTku8I [=FalcoMaster3000=]]]. [[labelnote:Explanation]] A joke was made at a competitive Melee tournament that, based on the sheer popularity of Fox and Falco in competitive tournaments, that there is a line of "[[=FalcoMasters=]]", genetically engineered humans that are made for the specific purpose of playing Fox and Falco to perfection. This caused a player, wearing a mask and sunglasses to cover his face, not saying a single word, and only putting down his name as "[[=FalcoMaster3000=]]", to show up at a professional Canadian Smash tournament and win with Fox, Falco and Marth. He went nine hours without taking off the mask to talk or even eat, and nobody knows his identity.[[/labelnote]]
* "My B." [[labelnote:explanation]]Chillindude's response to being absolutely bodied by Leffen in a $100 money match, after months of hyping it up and claiming that he would beat Leffen, even [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhsOW-_TwfU making a rap video about it.]][[/labelnote]]
* "Press 1 if you feel *insert emotion* for Hungrybox/*insert player*" [[labelnote:explanation]]A series of videos about Hungrybox, world's best Jigglypuff, having various emotions at different times, mostly as he's getting his butt kicked. The "Press 1" part originates from tournament announcers interacting with their Twitch streams. Perhaps the most infamous of these is the aptly-named "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB-6oRB4ABo Press 1 if you feel mad for Hungrybox]]"; the origin of the term "HOO-HAH". Other videos in this series include "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khB9mhbhdr8 Press 1 If You Feel Bad For Hungrybox]]", "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAMsQSiVCYw Press 1 if you feel sad for Hungrybox]]". This meme has also spread to other players, with such titles as "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxhteXZrPes Press 1 if you feel sad for Leffen"]], "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhRtFwZ7XCg Press 1 If You Feel Bad for Barthurs]] and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDyCs6-ePZ0 Press 1 if you feel bad for Zer0"]], among [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdiTO7Aji_g many]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vp1IFtTBNk4 other]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOFu0nm5o6Q versions]] of the same phrase.[[/labelnote]]
* "L E G A L I Z E P O K É F L O A T S" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Poké Floats is generally considered to be one of the least competitively viable stages in Melee. Naturally, this causes people to support its use as a competitive stage ironically when discussing stage lists.[[/labelnote]]
* LOL M2K. [[labelnote:explanation]] Competitive player Mew2king often gets involved in bizarre controversies, including accusations of colluson and bracket manipulation, calling certain characters overpowered, or randomly calling out people on Reddit or Twitter only for it to turn out not to have been the full story, not to mention his questionable choices in sponsors. A lot of this can be attributed to him being apparently located somewhere on the autism spectrum, and thus not quite grasping certain social ques[[/labelnote]]
** "I demand 7 3DSes." [[labelnote:explanation]] A particularly noteworthy controversy was his accusations against 3DS capture card manufacturer Katsukitty, claiming to have been sold two defective capture cards in a row and not to have been refudned at all. When Katsukitty responded, he mentioned that in the process of negotiation [[DispropotionateRetribution Mew2king demanded seven 3DSes as "compensation."]][[/labelnote]]
** COG PL P4K CT EMP MVG LOL | Mew2king [[labelnote:explanation]] M2K has a long history of sponsors, most of them ranging from somewhat shady (EMP, MVG) to outright scams (P4K). He even gave up his sponsorship from ClashTournaments, one of the few legitimate sponsors he had, in favour of EMP and P4K, the former of which would often fail to pay Mew2king and has a long history of screwing over other FGC players, and the latter of which never paid him at all, not to mention somehow roping fellow top player Armada into EMP as well and losing him his own CT sponsorship. He finally seems to have gotten a legitimate sponsor in COGnitive gaming, though, and while MVG has been at the center of some contorversies itself it still seems to be supporting him and helping him contribute to the community.[[/labelnote]]

[[AC: Fan Videos]]
* Anything from the three Brawl Taunts videos from Newgrounds... (but most people saw them on Website/YouTube.)
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8hvqTSCg-g YOU CAN HAVE...]]

[[AC: Forums]]
* At one point, there was always a new meme every day (mostly started by mentioning Wario and Dedede, or by misspelling a character's name, eg. [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} Chairzard]], [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Snoic]], [[VideoGame/{{Earthbound}} Noss]], or especially [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Metrod]], which also adds the "[[IAmNotShazam Samus is not Metroid]]" meme to the mix) on the GameFAQs board for Brawl.
* "Why is Misty?" "She's a trophy"[[labelnote:Explanation]]The first quote was the title of a GameFAQs message board topic asking why there was a picture of Misty from ''Pokemon'' in the manual for ''Super Smash Bros. Melee''. The topic quickly reached the limit of 500 posts thanks to a multitude of replies similar to the second quote.[[/labelnote]]
* "Kirby Cheat?" "Furby Meat?" (etc.)[[labelnote:Explanation]]Another ''Melee''-related GameFAQs topic where someone asked for information on a "Kirby cheat", possibly referring to spamming Kirby's standard A attack to rack up a high combo in Training mode. After a number of replies like "Kirby cheat?" it mutated into other phrases that rhymed with it.[[/labelnote]]
* The Mario is better than Mario[[labelnote:Explanation]]This originated in a [=GameFAQs=] thread where a user was discussing who he thought were the most important characters to the franchise. However, he accidentally put a line break before and after "The Mario," which made the phrase stand out on its own. Users then talked about "The Mario" being superior to regular Mario, even being worshipped like a god.[[/labelnote]].
** Mario will never get in![[labelnote:Explanation]]Many users like to joke that Mario has next to no chance of appearing in the Super Smash Bros. games, even though as Nintendo's mascot, he is all but guaranteed to appear in every game in the series.[[/labelnote]]
* Who would you is the original Smash Bros.?[[labelnote:Explanation]]The nonsensical title of a [=GameFAQs=] thread due to the lack of the word "think" between "you" and "is", and the inability to attribute "the original Smash Bros." to a character.[[/labelnote]]
* "shoots [=SA2=] in the foot."[[labelnote:Explanation]]A [=GameFAQs=] user named [=SA2=] became annoyed with the overabundance of character lists on the board, so he threatened to shoot himself in the foot every time a character list was made. Eventually, people started "shooting him in the foot" themselves.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/633202-super-smash-bros-for-wii-u/69100467 This]] GameFAQs post referencing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3eTRB2kfsw this YouTube video]] has been making this way around some Smash communities. Multiple references have been made to King Dedede from Kirby Air Ride, Urkle's Shirt, Machoman with a fishing pole riding the sun and the suns got sunglasses, and so on.

[[AC: [=JoJo=]'s Bizarre Adventure]]
* [[http://i.imgur.com/362wAK8.png ZELDA'S BIZARRE LEGEND]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Zelda's reveal for the fourth game had a picture of Zelda striking a pose that reminded a lot of people of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. The Internet had a field day with altering that picture.[[/labelnote]]
** And before then, Rosalina is touted as a "Stand user" because of how she utilizes Luma, [[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart5 of which people compared Luma to Aerosmith]].
** The dog of Duck Hunt is also touted as a "Stand user", with the Wild Gunmen as his stand. He even poses in a manner that wouldn't be out of place in ''Jojo's Bizarre Adventure'' when summoning the gunmen. Alternatively, the duck is the dog's Stand.
** Phantom Zelda was also revealed with regular Zelda nearby, leading to it being referred to as Zelda's Stand. Becomes HilariousInHindsight because that Phantom is actually Zelda's new Down B, and it's summoned as if it was a Stand.
** And now even Little Mac has been connected to [=JoJo=], due to this [[http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/19fo91z1qdxz2jpg/ku-xlarge.jpg screenshot]] where Mac's face bears a surprising resemblance to Joeseph Joestar, the internet ran with it, and we ended up with [[http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/19fo922zxd33tpng/ku-xlarge.png this]].
** Diddy's reveal came with an image of his stretching his arms out, leading to a war of whether characters should be '[=JoJofied=]' or [[OnePiece 'One Pieced']]
** Wii Fit Trainer is a [=JoJo=] character too, apparently. S/he breathes in air to power up and uses the energy of the sun as one of the attacks. Definitely a Ripple user.
** Ike's reappearance comes with a huge muscle upgrade, putting him more in line with the exaggerated characters in Jojo.

** Luigi's been doing Jojo references since ''[[OlderThanTheyThink Brawl]]''. Exhibit A: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlHxQmd4yCI WRYYYYYYYYGEE!]]
* E3 2014 had an amusing fight sequence between Iwata and Reggie that was to promote Mii Fighters in ''Super Smash Bros. 4''. Naturally, memes have sprouted around this, including edits of Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure footage putting Iwata as Star Platinum and Reggie either as Dio or as Jotaro and using Iwata as his stand.

[[AC: Masahiro Sakurai]]
* JAPAN TIEM[[labelnote:Explanation]]Referred to Sakurai's daily blog at the Smash Bros. Dojo, leading up to the release of Brawl, in which he'd detail new features of the game. Since it updated on Japanese mornings, this meant checking at unusual hours for it in more Western countries.[[/labelnote]]
** [[SkywardScream SAKURAAAAAAAAAAAIIIII!!!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The reaction to the above when fans were outraged over absent characters and other frustrating features.[[/labelnote]]
** '''Sakurai:''' [[{{Troll}} -laughs-]][[labelnote:Explanation]]And the counter-reaction. Comes from many interviews with Satoru Iwata in his "Iwata Asks" column, wherein every chuckle from anyone present is meticulously recorded as shown ad nauseum. One of these columns happened to involve an interview with Sakurai, popularizing the oddity.[[/labelnote]]
*** '''[[CreatorCameo Dedede]]''': *laughs*
** "[[ArmorPiercingQuestion Have you ever made a game?]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]At E3, a competitive fan by the name of "juice.Doom" jokingly confronts Sakurai about balancing the game. Sakurai shut him down with this response. Fans now use this as a joke response to criticism.[[/labelnote]]
** You know why he's laughing? Because '''REAL MANS USE ITEMS!!!1!1'''
** Also, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hayhkV1zGVA HE IS ENTERTAINER!]]
* [[ScrappyMechanic *trips*]] '''[[SkywardScream SAKURAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!]]'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]''Brawl'' introduced a mechanic in which characters would randomly trip while running. This was the reaction.[[/labelnote]]
* Sakurai's hand movements in the Smash Direct attracted much attention, leading to videos like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&persist_app=1&v=6rxg4zWutWU this.]]
* Mashpotato Samurai.[[labelnote:Explanation]]This comes from a Miiverse post that [[RougeAnglesOfSatin misspelled]] series creator Masahiro Sakurai's name as such.[[/labelnote]]
** Anything that sounds vaguely like Masahiro Sakurai (e.g. Massive Hero Sack of Fries) also works
* Sakurai hates Chrom.[[labelnote:Explanation]] Every time Chrom appears, it's to make fun of him. This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yCNTnfxhkU&list=UUfAPTv1LgeEWevG8X_6PUOQ video]] really hammers it in, with the Kid Icarus characters joking that Chrom's taking a nap, having Chrom himself say that Robin was a better choice than him, Viridi stating that he'd be a clone of Ike without the unique moves and a crestfallen Chrom realizing he's useless until the Final Smash.[[/labelnote]]
* Please understand...[[labelnote:Explanation]]This meme refers to a somewhat awkward phrase often used by Nintendo's president Satoru Iwata whenever disappointing news, such as a game being delayed, is announced during a Nintendo Direct presentation or otherwise. It's generally associated with Nintendo as a whole, though it has occasionally found usage when referring to Sakurai [[BeamMeUpScotty despite him never actually saying it.]][[/labelnote]]
* Sakurai Bias.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A complaint towards Sakurai's alleged favoritism or dislike of certain franchises determining the characters on the roster. Often cited as the reason Kid Icarus has three playable characters (as Sakurai directed ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising''), more than some long-established franchises that [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff have more popularity outside of Japan]] (eg. Metroid), but is often used to complain about any character choice or exclusion without any particular reasoning.[[/labelnote]]

[[AC: Mods]]
* Pikachu + Ganondorf's moves = [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgzDPDxrtto Pikaman!]] (AKA Longchu and Ganonchu)[[labelnote:Explanation]]Based on a famous moveset-swapping hack for ''Brawl''. A video featuring the moveswap was featured shortly after the game came out.[[/labelnote]]

[[AC: Mondegreens]]
* Some popular {{Mondegreen}}s include "Hands off my bread!", "Too easy, pizza-cake!", "Falcon Thrust!", "Rape the targets!", and "Landbastard!"
** '''Falco:''' PERSONALLY, I PREFER [[strike:THE AIR]] [[YourMom YOUR MOM]]!
* "Big Gay Thunder!" "Big Gay Fire!" "Peanut Butter!" "Big Gay Dance!" "PK Tenor!" "PK Flush!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Mondegreens of both Lucas's and Ness's names for their attacks. This, naturally, has led the fandom to give Dedede's final smash move a similar name to go with the gag.[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{Mondegreen}} I'll be the Marth]], [[GagSub e.g. noob]]... [[note]]Misheard lyrics of Brawl's main theme as featured in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFjaoYZ7jlA a comedic combo video]].[[/note]]

* You ''must'' recover![[labelnote:Explanation]]From the official website, a caption from a lesson explaining the tricks of getting back to the stage when knocked off. Many people were frustrated about the update because it didn't give any new information about the game.[[/labelnote]]
** You have no time to ponder such questions, as this troper has just grabbed a Meme Ball.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Oddly phrased caption while explaining Smash Balls. The original grabber is Link.[[/labelnote]]
* "2:04, Ganon. No strategies, just fighting as hard as I could."[[labelnote:Explanation]]After one poster asked how quickly everyone had beaten the 100 Man Brawl, one poster responded with this.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/TheLegendaryStarfy Stafy]], why did you even come here?[[labelnote:Explanation]]Possible shoot comment from the official website when introducing Stafy/Starfy as an assist trophy.[[/labelnote]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBWiDSgvqug ENTER THE REALM OF THE FALCON.]]
* Ridley is too big[[labelnote:Explanation]]Ridley is a character who gets requested often from the ''Metroid'' fanbase, but his gargantuan size many consider to be an obstacle to his inclusion.[[/labelnote]]
** "X for Brawl!" "He's too big."[[labelnote:Explanation]]After the "Ridley's too big" meme took root, it started being used on any suggested character. Mostly on GameFAQs.[[/labelnote]]
** Bigley. [[labelnote:Explanation]]One user jokingly made a stick figure Ridley reading 'Bigley', and now around half the posts you see on the Super Smash Bros. Miiverse community are just Bigley pictures.[[/labelnote]]
** As it turns out, [[http://ca.ign.com/articles/2014/11/19/why-ridley-isnt-playable-in-smash-bros Sakurai has admitted]] that [[AccidentallyAccurate size really is a factor in why he's never been playable]] - various changes would need to be made to him to make him a balanced fighter, including shrinking him down, and the end result [[NotAsYouKnowThem just wouldn't feel like Ridley]].
** Even funnier when you consider Charizard in Smash 4 has a purple skin that makes him resemble Ridley.
** Related: [[VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG Geno]]. Likely won't ever get in because of copyright issues with Square, but still a very common request.
*** Actually, [[https://cp.nintendo.co.jp/us/ it may actually become possible soon.]]
* X da bess[[labelnote:Explanation]]Originally used with Meta Knight, in a video about him being [[GameBreaker overpowered.]][[/labelnote]]
* "Heroes always arrive late."[[labelnote:Explanation]]This cryptic sentence ended the music update post for "Go K.K. Rider!" To this day, nobody is sure what it means.[[/labelnote]]
* "Mei Ling, Samus took her clothes off!"
** "That's Wario, Snake." This conversation was popular around the time a few of Snake's codec conversations were revealed.
** "Are you kidding me?!" Snake's reaction to learning that Wario can fly by farting.
* There was going to be another meme here, but we cut it in favor of Environmental Noises.[[labelnote:Explanation]]Environmental Noises is a "music" track that is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Some people see it as a completely useless music track and complain about other cool songs that could have been in the game instead.[[/labelnote]]
* TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT![[labelnote:Explanation]]Fans eagerly awaited Captain Falcon's ''Brawl'' reveal. The hype for Captain Falcon on [=GameFAQs=] helped bring rise to the "Falcon Punch!" meme.[[/labelnote]]
* LANDMASTER![[labelnote:Explanation]]This meme originated shortly after ''Brawl'' came out in Japan; it was revealed that three characters (the ''Star Fox'' representatives) used the Landmaster as a Final Smash; more than any other Final Smash in the game. Fans now joke that any unknown Final Smash is going to be the Landmaster.[[/labelnote]]
* Gordondarf.[[labelnote:Explanation]]One user made a topic discussing which version of Ganondorf should be in Brawl, but accidentally wrote his name as "Gordondarf." This meme became so big it had its own day dedicated to it. Jokes about Gordon Freeman from VideoGame/HalfLife have been constantly made.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.smashbros.com/images/character/donkey_kong/screen-7.jpg This]] DrosteImage of DK seems to be making it around.
* Bowser's increased speed & slimmer appearance in the 4th game has fans believe that he tried out ''VideoGame/WiiFit'' to lose some weight, especially with the Wii Fit Trainer being around.
** The same joke is then applied to Yoshi, whose posture also is changed in the fourth Smash game.
* When TV Tropes joins the battle, Alfonzo is in charge of the tropes. Alfonzo: "Leave it to me!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]One pic of the day revealed that in the 3DS version of the game, [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks Alfonzo drives the Spirit Train]] instead of Toon Link when the the latter is being controlled. It got started as a meme the next week, when a pic of the day featured a Palutena statue and someone [[http://i2.minus.com/jMVj9GF9TM3Gv.png photoshopped Alfonzo in]] as a reference to a (later-proven-accurate) rumor making the rounds that Palutena was playable. Before long, Alfonzo was being [[https://31.media.tumblr.com/3fa87d6ed5416f0b875a094cc0d594d9/tumblr_n067ejyPf51toqguko2_500.png edited]] [[https://31.media.tumblr.com/013a6884ebb863c0272ccc3b59b1c29d/tumblr_n067ejyPf51toqguko3_500.jpg into]] pictures to replace [[http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/733/532/cd9.jpg other characters]], and it [[https://24.media.tumblr.com/830caaa2252b7fe6a9cd810283fcc890/tumblr_n067ejyPf51toqguko4_500.jpg eventually]] [[http://i.imgur.com/qvlnQSt.png mutated]] further.[[/labelnote]]
* Luigi's Nose confirmed [[labelnote:Explanation]]The infamous 100th pic of the day has led to Luigi's nose becoming practically synonymous with disappointing {{filler}} updates (like "you must recover" was for Brawl), although characters lying down is rapidly catching up.[[/labelnote]]
* SALUTE THE SUN! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Wii Fit Trainer's neutral Special move is Sun Salutation, a yoga pose that summons a small sun in front of her that grows. The pose and the similarity of the name sure made certain ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' fans noted.[[/labelnote]]
* ''[[Music/BackstreetBoys BACKSTREET'S BACK]], '''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNx1HiFIoRk ALRIGHT]]!'''''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Mega Man's Final Smash has a TeamShot remarkably similar to a ''Backstreet Boys'' cover.[[/labelnote]]
** Now with an updated [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygzpiekIzAo version]] courtesy of the Smash Bros. Invitational.
* ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vz96eSYdFvc BANNED!]]''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Smash Bros. commentator D1 reacted to the sizzle reel of stages in the Smash Direct by proclaiming that most of the stages would get banned. And that Jungle Japes is banned already.[[/labelnote]]
* [[http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/f2/87/b5/f287b5c92b50ba9e4948cbfa59384cf7.jpg Photorealistic Substitute Doll]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} Substitue]] doll for Greninja is ''incredibly detailed'', despite only being seen for a few seconds at a time.[[/labelnote]]
* ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghEhI4CJjAM Reggie Fils A Mech]]''[[labelnote:Explanation]]A {{Mega64}} video announcing the game appearing at Best Buy over the summer is done by having the Mega64 guys infiltrate Nintendo's headquarters using a Reggie Android. ''With laser eyes.'' Yeah... [[/labelnote]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wnnv5zySAk "SUPER FIGHTING ROBOT! MEGA MAN! FIGHTING TO SAVE THE WORLD!"]][[labelnote:Explanation]]The commentators for E3 2014's invitational tournament screamed the lyrics to the Mega Man cartoon when Mega Man was able to show off his Final Smash.[[/labelnote]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkvvowZEJkM Naturally, this was edited into the actual intro.]]
** Another famous moment was the celebrity match where Greninja was able to use his Final Smash on Kirby and Link... but Bowser, having sent flying off the stage earlier, is still floating on his recovery platform as the Final Smash continues.
** It became a running gag during the invitational to hold up Pikachu cards during the fan favorite votes, long after Pikachu's player, [=MilkTea=], had been eliminated.
** The zap thing! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The lightning bolt item was described by one of the commentators as "[[BuffySpeak the Mario Kart zap thing]]".[[/labelnote]]
*** In a similar vein, the "[[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Maximum Potato.]]" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Maxim Tomato.[[/labelnote]]
* ''[[Disney/WreckItRalph They invited Pac-Man?!]]'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]With Pac-Man's inclusion in Smash Bros, this particular line from ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' (where Pac-Man was invited to the 30th anniversary of the ''Fix-It Felix Jr.'' game instead of Ralph) becomes fairly appropriate. There's even gifs where Ralph is photoshopped with Captain Falcon's helmet or Ness' head.[[/labelnote]]
* With multiple accounts of Chunky Kong being an assist trophy yet still no footage of it, images like [[http://i.imgur.com/oCrdPdO.png this]] are starting to crop up.
* The year is 20XX. Everyone plays Fox. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A hypothetical post-apocalyptic year where the knowledge and skill of players have reached a point where they play with absolute perfection, and can no longer improve; Fox, being the most efficient character in the roster, is the only viable character left; and as a result of every player playing perfectly, the matches are determined by a rock-paper-scissors match for port priority.[[/labelnote]]
* Press 1 if you feel bad for Hungrybox. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Repeated whenever Hungrybox does badly at tournaments, particularly at the Smash 4 invitational where fans felt he was "cheated" out of his victory against [=ZeRo=].[[/labelnote]]
* Mario's stars-and-stripes ''NES Open Tournament Golf'' costume has already earned nicknames like [[PatrioticFervor "Uncle Mario" and "'Murica Mario"]]. Many jokes like [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BsLH1LFCIAEBU45.png:large this one]] are popping up.
** "Looks like Mango has found his new main." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Competitive player Mang0, one of the top five Melee players, is often considered the most "patriotic" of the top five, and crowds will often chant "USA" when he does well.[[/labelnote]]
* "I suppose I'll get my chance... another day..." [[labelnote:Explanation]] Chrom's statement in the reveal trailer for Lucina and Robin, who were both confirmed while he was simultaneously deconfirmed. The statement's been used to refer to other characters that are looking less likely to appear, such as [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Ridley]] and [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Mewtwo]].[[/labelnote]]
** Friend Zoned By Smash Bros. [[labelnote:Explanation]] Someone on Miiverse uploaded a screenshot of custom named weapons in Fire Emblem Awakening, each weapon saying one of the above letters, as a way to explain Chrom's lack of inclusion. Hilarously, Chrom was the one holding the weapons.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreed Yes, you can play as a female Robin. No, it didn't double our work load to make that character]] @Creator/{{Ubisoft}}. [[labelnote:Explanation]][[https://twitter.com/Reggie_NOA/status/488694239057149953 A parody Twitter account]] threw shade at Ubisoft for not including female characters in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreed Unity'' because they were too hard and time consuming, compared to Smash having both male and female models for the same character.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising "I told you, Pit. It's Super Bash Sisters."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]What Palutena misremembered ''Super Smash Bros.'' as in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'', it's gained use due to the high number of female characters in Smash 3DS/Wii U - including Palutena herself.[[/labelnote]]
* The HotterAndSexier design of Samus's [[SensualSpandex Zero Suit]] has resulted in everyone getting drawn in her Zero Suit, and we do mean ''[[WholesomeCrossdresser everyone]]''.
* With Samus having [[CombatStilettos jet heels]] and VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}} having Samus's Power Suit as a costume in the WiiU version of ''Bayonetta'', a lot of fans joke that Samus [[http://kitsune23star.tumblr.com/post/88787445074/even-the-most-hardcore-of-women-cant-resist traded her Power Suit for Bayonetta's gun heels]].
* FEET CONFIRMED FOR SMASH! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Tying in with the meme of none of the 3D character models in ''Awakening'' having feet, fans were delighted and tickled when they saw that Lucina, Robin and Chrom's Smash models did. [[/labelnote]]
* We Esports now. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said in regards to Melee's rapidly expanding competitive community, after EVO 2013 and multiple big-name tournaments in 2014 like EVO and MLG Anaheim, as well as an invitational tournament at E3 held by Nintendo themselves.[[/labelnote]]
** MY ESPORTS IS SO HARD RIGHT NOW
*** If your esports lasts for more than four hours, please contact your doctor.
* [[NiceHat Super Hat Bros]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A lot of screens have the Mii Fighters wearing a myriad of hats, whether a standard hat or one based off a fellow Fighter. Comparisons to [[TeamFortress2 TF2]] followed shortly.[[/labelnote]]
* "Did you hear that Smash Run will be a playable mode on the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS™?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]With the official site's Picture of the Day focusing mostly on the 3DS version in the couple of months leading up to its release, fans have started responding with sarcastic wide-eyed enthusiasm every time Sakurai mentions Smash Run in an update (especially those that add little new information). Fans take it upon themselves to make sure the public is well-informed that Smash Run will be exclusively for the 3DS version.[[/labelnote]]
* FUCKING MENUS[[labelnote:Explanation]]A common reaction to Pics of the Day come near the Japanese release date. Most where just pictures of various in-game menus with a description explaining them. There was even a whole week full of menus.[[/labelnote]]
** [[http://media.tumblr.com/071d711f61d70b22d02847b77f78c6b7/tumblr_inline_nbo4wf43lZ1rjw2mu.jpg Allow me to show you our menus, sir.]]
* 9/11 never forget.[[labelnote:Explanation]]The full roster of the fourth game was discovered on September 11th, 2014, the day before the Japanese release, frustrating many who had assumed there were at least 4 more characters who were expected to be either highly requested newcomers or veterans. The date was not unnoticed.[[/labelnote]]
* "I have a rather... Embarrassing problem with Peach."[[labelnote:Explanation]]From [[http://www.reddit.com/r/smashbros/comments/2dcjtj/i_have_a_rather_embarrassing_problem_with_peach/ this reddit thread]] (probably NSFW), where the OP admits to being sexually attracted to Peach, which is throwing off his game whenever he plays against someone using her, and asks for tips to mitigate it.[[/labelnote]]
** /u/[Character Name]Problem[[labelnote:Explanation]]Whenever someone expresses sexual attraction to a Smash character, people declare that they're waiting for a post from a similarly-named account.[[/labelnote]]
* R.I.P. Trophy [[labelnote:Explanation]]Upon the reveal of the final roster, people were hoping that characters like King K. Rool, Ridley, Chorus Kids, and Ice Climbers would hopefully be revealed as DLC. When they got a lot of characters that they were hoping for as DLC as trophies, they said "Rest in peace" or "Good game". Some people argue that if there was DLC, there could still be hope for such characters. Indeed with the reveal that Mewtwo, who was one of the R.I.P. trophy victims, will be the first DLC character, this hope now holds merit.[[/labelnote]]
* "Settle it in ''Smash''!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]The [[NoIndoorVoice empathically-declared]] {{slogan}} used in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0G9-DwU2fI English]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKEsviMNOLI commercials]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4SalDG__nY for]] ''Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS'', being Nintendo's primary method suggested regarding the resolution of disagreements.[[/labelnote]]
** [[Music/TheTurtles So happy]] [[SoundtrackDissonance together...]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]''Everything'' from the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K783SDTBKmg original English commerical]] for the Nintendo 64 game has become memetic in some way or another. From the sheer ridiculousness of the concept to the dissonant yet somehow fitting choice of music to ''Creator/DonLaFontaine'' as the narrator, it's widely considered to be one of the best -- and funniest -- commercials that Nintendo has ever produced.[[/labelnote]]
* [[{{Mondegreen}} Da]] [[{{CountryMatters}} Cunt]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A {{Mondegreen}} and FanNickname for VideoGame/DuckHunt.[[/labelnote]]
* [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} I am a shadow, the]] ''[[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} true]]'' [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} self.]] [[labelnote:Explanation (spoilers)]]Master Core's penultimate form is a shadow copy of the player character. Naturally, fans were quick to make the connection.[[/labelnote]]
* [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles I FOUND MY SUPER SUIT!]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of the pieces of equipment in Smash Bros. 4 happens to be named Super Suit. Fans were quick to make the connection between it and Frozone's famous scene in The Incredibles.[[/labelnote]]
* Editing screenshots of funny moments from the first three seasons of Spongebob Squarepants to be about Super Smash Bros.
* LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}} wrote these descriptions.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A few of the new trophy descriptions are rife with puns, including those for Eggplant Pit and Fly Guy. Some fans of the games linked them to Chuggaaconroy's tendency to spout awful puns himself.[[/labelnote]]
* Since Mewtwo returning as a playable character in the fourth game was revealed in the same Nintendo Direct where Ridley was confirmed to appear as a boss, some fans joke that Mewtwo trolled Ridley.
* Pre-order Cancelled, Wii U/3DS Smashed. [[labelnote:Explanation]]An exaggerated RuinedForever reaction that's usually in response to some small aesthetic thing isn't in the game. It's been a reaction to things such as Peach's upskirt still being a void in the Wii U version and Punch-Out's Jumbotron not calling Mega Man the [[WesternAnimation/MegaMan Super Fighting Robot]].[[/labelnote]]
* The "50 Facts" Direct for the Wii U version has become a FountainOfMemes in itself thanks to its LargeHamAnnouncer:
** ''' ''BUTTONS!!!'' ''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]Xander Mobus as the Announcer [[LargeHam goes to town with the ham]], noticeably making even mundane things such as the return of button configuration [[MundaneMadeAwesome sound exciting]].[[/labelnote]]
** ''' ''A MICROPHONE!'' ''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Announcer states this triumphantly when describing the game's voice chat features, pointing out the Wii U Gamepad's built-in microphone.[[/labelnote]]
** ''' ''IT'S NOT EVEN COMPARABLE!'' '''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Stated by the announcer when comparing the amount of songs in the Wii U version to the amount of songs in the 3DS version.[[/labelnote]]
** '''''BOY, IS IT SWEET TO LINE 'EM UP LIKE THIS!'''''[[labelnote:Explanation]] Stated after talking aboout the amiibo functionality, making very little sense in context. Expect this to be said whenever any set of things are lined up.[[/labelnote]]
* '''''Ridley: Looks like we're working together.'''''[[labelnote:Explanation]] In a vein based on the [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Grey Fox Assist Trophy / Solid Snake combo]], people have used Samus to cause Ridley to fight [[EnemyMine alongside the woman he tormented and got killed by.]] [[/labelnote]]
* "DK's in, dis gonna be bananas." [[labelnote:Explanation]] An appropriately corny video explaining Amiibo had several phrases that became minor memes, but this one has taken off more than the others.[[/labelnote]]
* Please secure your wrist strap to safely contain hype. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Common in any hype-worthy situation, mostly in the Project M community.[[/labelnote]]
* You know what? Corndog Shulk is really feeling it! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A few users on GameFAQs started to complain about how Amiibos were keeping the poses on their promotional artwork, since that meant a lot of them needed bits of plastic supporting the character, including Shulk having a pole shoved up his butt. It didn't take long for other users to make the comparison stated...[[/labelnote]]
** Link, held aloft by a stick of butter. [[labelnote:Explanation]]While most characters have decent looking stands, regular Link has a clear yellow block holding him up. Lots of people have compared the block to a stick of butter, or frozen urine.[[/labelnote]]
* Naming characters in Smash Bros. [[labelnote:Explanation]]There are a few videos and images of people getting other people (usually those who are [[PopCultureIsolation not gamers or are unfamiliar with Nintendo games]]) to name various characters that appear in the Smash Bros. games. A few like Mario and Pikachu are recognizable enough to get named correctly, but others are less lucky and get more [[AccidentalMisnaming amusing monikers]] Eg. Rosalina is "[[Disney/{{Frozen}} Elsa]]", Kirby is "Ghost Peach", Fox [=McCloud=] is "[[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Rocket Raccoon]]" etc.[[/labelnote]]
* Nintendo Factory Sealed Defect Amiibo. [[labelnote:Explanation]]There was a defective Samus Amiibo that had two arm cannons by mistake. [[http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-Factory-Sealed-Defect-Samus-Amiibo-Dual-Cannons-RARE-/171555687750?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27f1840d46 This Amiibo was actually put up for auction on eBay]] and $2500 was the winning bid. Parodies of this have appeared like [[http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/876/605/068.jpg *Defective Invisible Amiibo Link*]] and [[http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/876/855/528.png *Nintendo Factory Sealed Defect Donkey Kong Amiibo Invisible Box + No Tie RARE*]][[/labelnote]]
* HE HAS NO STYLE, HE HAS NO GRACE. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The Smash remix of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtXHRSRQZvU the DK Rap]] has always been a fan favorite, but during the leadup to the 3DS game's release, Lanky Kong's verse saw a bizarre transformation into memehood. Not only has this made Lanky Kong himself more popular, but [[http://pbs.twimg.com/media/B3pfR2aIEAAkL9h.png parodies and snowclones]] of the verse have begun to pop up. Coincidentally, Lanky's verse was actually cut from the DK Rap in the Wii U version to shorten the song's length.[[/labelnote]]
* Who I mained, What I expected, What I got. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Many fans have been posting charts labelled like this. The first panel shows the character they played as; the second panel shows their expectations for the character (usually wimpy or childish); and the third panel shows their reaction after playing, generally being rejoiceful or satirical. [[http://41.media.tumblr.com/b18c3d79b508b9e83149350d1495d98f/tumblr_nio5sinRjy1rruwv7o1_500.png Here's an example.]] Many of these can be found on Website/KnowYourMeme and Website/{{Tumblr}}.[[/labelnote]]
* "I found a [[GameBreaker game-breaking]] bug! Better {{nerf}} Greninja." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Similar to ''Memes/LeagueOfLegends'' and its "Better nerf Irelia" meme. There's a perception that Greninja has received nerfs in ''every patch since launch'' ([[DeadUnicornTrope he hasn't]]) even though Greninja isn't out of line, while other characters remain far stronger than him. It has since become a joke that whenever a huge bug is found, the patch that fixes it will include a nerf to Greninja thrown in for good measure.[[/labelnote]]
* I can't believe MS Paint is a stage in ''Super Smash Bros. for Wii U''! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Pac-Man's stage in ''SSBU'' is based on the obscure arcade game ''Pac-Land''. The stage has been met with mixed reception, and fans often joke about its poor arcade-quality graphics.[[/labelnote]]
* Too much {{Anime}}! [[labelnote:Explanation]]A rather prolific VocalMinority of fans not satisfied with the fourth game's roster tend to blame it on the handful of playable characters that have an anime-like design to them and demand them to be removed for "pandering to [[OccidentalOtaku weeaboos]]". This is usually aimed at [[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} Shulk]] and the entire playable rosters of Franchise/FireEmblem and VideoGame/KidIcarus (which, for the latter, is already stacked on top of that series' claimed [[SpotlightStealingSquad "Sakurai Bias"]] for this game). Other fans tend to make fun of these detractors by stating there's no anime characters in the game, list ones that actually fit the criteria (such as [[Franchise/DragonBall Goku]] and Franchise/{{Naruto}}), or pretend to list the other "anime" characters in the game that should be removed, too. These lists are just for the characters that have their own AnimeOfTheGame, rather than being created for the medium, such as Captain Falcon, [[Anime/KirbyOfTheStars Kirby]], [[Anime/SonicTheHedgehogTheMovie Sonic]] ([[Anime/SonicX twice!]]), [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} all of the playable Pokemon]], and even [[Anime/TheGreatMissionToSavePrincessPeach Mario, himself.]][[/labelnote]]
** Little Mac: Destroyer of Anime [[labelnote:Explanation]]Related to the above, but not as prominent, are fans using Little Mac as an antithesis towards any of the above anime-like characters, due to his and his [[VideoGame/PunchOut series']] [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff stronger popularity in America compared to Japan]] contrasting with [[Franchise/FireEmblem the]] [[VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising above]] [[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} series']] appeal and aesthetics still largely in favor for the Japanese (and, alongside [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]], being a more highly-requested character for Smash in America, as well), as well as being a boxer from [[BigApplesauce New York]], making him the most [[PatrioticFervor American]] character in the game.[[/labelnote]]
* Vote X For Smash![[labelnote:Explanation]]Nintendo announced a Smash Bros ballot to decide on the next DLC character, with ''any'' video game character (as in, they don't have to be owned by Nintendo) able to be suggested. This has led to fans suggesting characters as though they were running for President, with political posters and all. Much more common however are joke votes, with a character being suggested and their only reasoning being one of their catch phrases. Such as suggesting Groose, because he needs to be let loose, or Lanky Kong, with his reason for being included featuring his verses from the DK Rap. Not even fan characters (who have no chance of being chosen) are exempt from this, such as Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}.[[/labelnote]].
