Since Umineko: When They Cry is in the same franchise as Higurashi, memes were bound to happen.
When a certain team of translators began releasing their patches, even more memes were bound to happen, considering how it usually works with visual novels.
And then when about half the cast started trolling not only the other characters but the readers themselves...well, look down.
Please add entries in the following format:
The meme. [[labelnote:Explanation:The explanation behind the meme[[/labelnote]]Explanation Like this
The small bombs are responsible for EVERYTHINGExplanation A joke about the fourth arc where Battler claims that Small Bombs Did It.
"Beatrice caused Endless Eight."Explanation A reference to a series of episodes from Haruhi Suzumiya
" Endless Nine >> Endless Eight."Explanation A joke about Battler's Endless Nine status in Episode 4
"You are incompetent."Explanation Beato's red truth in Episode 2 towards Battler
"You just lost The Game."
Colored text debates!Even on this very wikiand beyond!Explanation Colored text has been given memetic usages when discussing Umineko
MAGICAL GOHDA CHEF note The entirety of Happy Maria is a giant meme-making machine, since no one seems to know what the actual lyrics are supposed to be. Either that, or it's simply the worst case of Gratuitous EnglishThey Just Didn't Care about As Long as It Sounds Foreign. Some other widely used examples are "Witch's golden dreamer", "I'm gonna piss in fire (for magical breeding power)", "Witch's golden bacon", and "You're breaking my broken undershow".
Used in a similar manner as "Meanwhile at Valve", there's "Meanwhile, at Witch Hunt..."Explanation A joke about how long translations usually take
Post the current status of the translation when there's been no movement in some time and people rage. Post a fake update and people rage. Post an actual update and people will still think you're a troll until they confirm it for themselves.
A popular fad is to photoshop Kinzo or Beatrice's Trollface onto images. Sometimes with OH DESIRE! incorporated into the caption or as a pun (such as A Streetcar Named Desire). The general consensus is that "Everything's Better With Kinzo. No exceptions."
Not to say that the rest of the cast is left out, as the sprites are fun to exploit. There's even a fake screenshot maker for even more craziness.
While putting matching up the scrolling ED "Trust Me" from Durarara!! with characters from other series is a meme in and of itself, pairing it with Umineko is one of the most popular, if Pixiv is any indication.
Jessica is as straight as a rainbow, and bats for the other team.
I WANT TO BELIEVE.Expanation This is the tagline for The X-Files which involves Agent Mulder as a firm believer of the paranormal and Agent Scully who is quick to deny such claims despite seeing evidence in front of her eyes. Sound familiar?
