Of course, this is referring to her flat chest, though why a cutting board is a mystery. This has so much related fanon that some think it is canon is that she binds it or has A-Cup Angst.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE

  • From its announcement in January 2013 to the April 2015 Nintendo Direct, the game had no footage of it shown at all, with the only information about it being vague comments from interviews and assurances that it's still being made. Fans, either jokingly or seriously, believed the game was in Development Hell or Vaporware, and called it Nintendo's Half-Life 3 or The Last Guardian.

Project X Zone 2

  • Okay, Chrom, we managed to fit you into a game.Explanation 


    • While we're on the subject: Don't use Jagen!
  • "Are Marth and Roy in this game!?"Explanation 
    • This meme became less relevant with the remake of Shadow Dragon (aka THE ONE WITH MARTH) debuting in the West, and Ike, who had his games released in the west, replaced Roy in Brawl.
    • Fire Emblem Awakening almost almost made it seem like it was playing with this meme to hell and back — both Marth and Roy (along with every other Fire Emblem protagonist) are available and playable as SpotPass or DLC units.
      • In fact, it directly plays with it in one of the DLC chapters, where the player faces off against a large army of protagonists and important allies from the previous games. Marth and Roy are right next to each other.
      • They were definitely playing with it in the Smash Brethren DLC maps, where the first two maps have the heroes siding with either Ike or Roy's army to fight off the other character's group, a not-so-subtle nod to the Fandom Rivalry between fans of each title, and, by extension, the question of who should rep Fire Emblem alongside Marth in Smash Bros. (Ironically, Smash Brethren 3 has the player taking on the combined forces of both armies.)

  • We last left off where Seth decided to go to Valor on his black dragon Erath. And when he got there...And if anyone forgot the story, Kyan found his long lost friend Seth on Valor, and his black dragon Erath. Kyan is a mamkute that can still use swords as well as dragon stone attack. Explanation 
  • "Chrom is FINALLY getting his chance!" Explanation 
  • I'M A GREEN UNIT! Explanation 
  • After being disappointed about the March 8th Nintendo Direct not having any news about the next Fire Emblem game on the Switch, the Fire Emblem sub-reddit changed itself into a Kirby sub-reddit for a day.
  • Whenever a discussion about dismounting takes place, expect a joke about the Skewed Priorities of mounted units when fighting indoors (i.e. "We gotta keep the carpets clean while fighting to the death!").
