It originated from 4chan. Further explanation is unnecessary.

Please add entries in the following format:

  • The meme. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The explanation behind the meme, if necessary.[[/labelnote]] Explanation 
    • Further mutations and successor memes, if any.

  • "Get out KS devs" is usually a stock response when anyone decides to talk about it on the image board of its origin.
  • HNNNG! Explanation 
  • After a large number of commenters spammed the above in response to one too many cute pictures, several moderators said that anyone commenting with "a certain onomatopoeia" would be banned. This, of course, led to several comments of "A CERTAIN ONOMATOPOEIA!"
  • "Am I poplar yet?
  • "Gimme the chocolate, Hisao!" Explanation 
    • "Why does she need glasses if she's deaf?" Explanation 
  • Advertisement:
  • On the Shimmie site, "Lilly is too classy for X." X being anything ranging from arguments to silly acts.
  • Also, her rivalry with Shizune: "Who's there? ... No answer, must be that deaf bitch."
    • Becomes Hilarious in Hindsight when, late in Lilly's route, this essentially happens when Shizune gives Lilly the folder that she asked Misha to retrieve, and the two reconcile.
  • Rin in a tin bin. That makes me grin. Explanation 
  • Rin is hugging you.
    • Became an Ascended Meme in the full version when Rin actually does this in her route (the first pic, that is).
  • "The problem is in your pants".
  • On the on-site image gallery, all anonymous users have the name Shiina "Misha" Mikado. It has thus become common for users to call out Misha for saying something stupid/irrelevant/etc, followed by "Wait, I'm Misha." This is a reference to her Third-Person Person tendencies when translating for Shizune.

  • MANLY PICNIC! Explanation (Spoilers) 
  • And everyone lived happily ever after. Except for Rin, who dies of breast cancer.
  • Misha is fat.
  • "Anal." Explanation (Spoilers) 
    • Related: Emi's path.
    • Lemons.
      • This meme crosses over with Portal 2, what with Cave Johnson's quotable rant about lemons.
    • Gloves in the shed.
  • Lilly, in fanart, is often portrayed as a young Lady Drunk or a Hard-Drinking Party Girl. When it's revealed that she's half-Scottish, the comparisons to another visually-impaired Scottish alcoholic are inevitable.
  • In the options menu, there is an option to disable the sex scenes, in case you'd rather enjoy the "PG-13" version of the work. It's common for some people to quip "I don't get why we have to disable the sex scenes. Aren't they all disabled anyway?" Explanation 
  • Psychic Spies. Explanation 
  • It's Fukin' Lilly! Explanation 
  • The loss of sex drive often caused by this Visual Novel has been diagnosed as "Katawa Dick Syndrome," or KDS for short.
  • The word "Din" by virtue of being an uncommon word. To the point that "Din Dins" is used to refer to Hanako's H-scene, due to a scene in the film The Strange Thing About the Johnsons
  • "crapawa shitjo is not a game." Explanation 
  • Kenji's freaking out face is hilariously memetic enough to be photoshopped onto the other girls as a joke. Same with Emi's anal face.
  • Rumba Rumba Rumba Rumba Rumba Explanation 
  • This video (by Pimmy, one of the artists that worked on KS) is veritable Fountain of Memes:
  • "Oh God Mah Drills!"
  • "Healthy adolescent sex drive" Explanation 
  • The feels. Explanation 
  • "Six inches lower and you'll see she's actually masturbating" Explanation 
  • That's not what comforting means! Explanation (spoilers) 
  • Misha's disability. Explanation 
  • Hisao Nakai, Master of Romance!
  • Mutou's physical resemblance with Uncle Stu, or with the Tenth Doctor.
  • The Katawa Shoujo and Madoka Magica girls cosplaying as eachother; Shizune & Sayaka always swap, as do Hanako & Homura ( not withstanding the fact that Homura would actually fit right in with her heart problem), Mami & Lilly usually swap (though sometimes with Misha, coz of the drills), with Rin as Madoka or Kyoko, Misha as the other, and Emi with Madoka or KYUUBEY!!!
  • Bitches love the sweater-vest.
  • "Math is for gaylords. I'd rather smoke weed."
