EVERY MEME IS HERE!
Advertisement:

Being the Massive Multiplayer Crossover it is, Super Smash Bros. is notorious for spawning many memes.

Please note, if you wish to add an example here, please leave a note or labelnote explaining why it's an example. Zero-Context Examples are not allowed on TV Tropes. Similarly, please try to keep the memes actually related to Smash in some way and make sure they're relatively well known already in the community. This page is not for forcing anything you find funny to become a meme.

    Characters 
  • Captain Falcon, the series' resident Fountain of Memes. Hell, some consider his memetic status on par with that of real life memetic badass Chuck Norris:
    • "FALCON PUUUUUUNCH!!!"Explanation 
    • "HYES!!!!"Explanation 
    • Show me ya moves!Explanation 
      • "Shoyu mousse!" Explanation 
    • Captain Falcon punched Chrom so hard he fell out of the roster.Explanation 
    • Captain Falcon's iconic hot pink alternate costumenote , affectionately dubbed "Captain Fabulous" by the community. Many claim he's the only character who can pull off wearing it and be even manlier.
  • Kirby:
    • Ever since the first game came out, it's been a popular trend on art sites to make character hats for Kirby. Explanation 
    • Speaking of copying, it's a popular trend to have Kirby copy Captain Falcon and make remix videos of his version of Falcon Punch with Gourmet Race in the background, like this one.
    • The Smash Bros version of Gourmet Race in general has been a very popular choice for remix videos.
    • Kirby is the most powerful Nintendo character/the Chosen One/Jesus.Explanation 
    • Kirby turning back and forth Explanation 
  • Ike:
    • "I FIGHT FOR MY FRIENDS."Explanation 
    • GREAT! AETHERRRR!!! (or as they say in Japan, I! HATE! YOU!)Explanation 
    • AETHERRRR!!!! (Or PIZZA!) Explanation 
    • You'll get no sympathy from me.Explanation 
    • Ike is a Fountain of Memes in Japan as well. Thanks to this snapshot from the official Brawl website, it was a common joke in the fandom to superimpose a doughnut on Ike's face and call him "Doughnutman"; probably due to the cape and belt making him resemble some kind of super hero in the vein of Anpanman.
    • 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. The Japanese fandom has taken to calling this model of him "Gorilla Ike", probably from the Fan Nickname of "Gorrilaguz" from the main Fire Emblem fandom. He is usually grouped up with Mega Swampert from Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and Knuckles from Sonic Boom due to the similar buffed-up appearances. It's also the subject of a lot of Anchor Arms jokes.
    • "Prepare yourself." "Prepare yourself."Explanation 
  • Sonic the Hedgehog:
  • Peach's side taunt "La la la la la la" and one of her victory screens "Did I win?" are both infamous for being absolutely infuriating to those who lose to the character.
  • Marth:
    • Any variation of calling Marth a girl. Explanation 
    • His white costume looking like a wedding dress.
    • "Just the tip."Explanation 
    • One Marth
      Two Marth
      Red Marth
      Blue Marth
      Explanation 
    • _____ Marth Explanation 
  • From Robin and Lucina's reveal trailer, the "No, you'll get it today" (or more directly translated, "Not necessarily not") subtitle at the end became memetic around the Japanese fanbase, often used to mock other characters who didn't become playable.
    • Also, good luck mentioning Robin without someone mentioning tipping scales somewhere along the thread. This has sometimes been lumped together with the "Shulk time" meme mentioned below.
    • To a lesser extent, Lucina's "I challenge my fate!" line had become somewhat quotable around the fanbase, as it was in her original game.
    • Robin, the Avatar. Master of All Four Elements.Explanation 
    • Robin summoning Chrom to beat up Chrom. Explanation 
  • Villager:
    • Psycho Villager/Killager Explanation 
    • Dorpsbewoner Explanation 
  • Greninja:
    • Numerous pics have been made joking about how Lucario and Greninja were chosen over Mewtwo for Smash Bros. 4.
    • Greninja fights with Mewtwo fans' tears.
    • "Wait, [insert minor complaint here]!? Better nerf Greninja." Explanation

  • Shulk:

    • "This is the Monado's power!" Explanation 
    • Shulk is just a photoshopped Little Mac.Explanation 
    • "Back Slash!" "Air Slash!" Explanation 
    • MONADO BOYExplanation 
    • Because of how similar their names are, a lot of fanarts of Shulk and She-Hulk doing each other's job and/or in the other's outfit appeared.
    • Shulk's swimsuit alternate costume immediately became really popular, a lot of people wishing to see all the other characters with a "swimsuit mode" (in the same way people wanted to see everybody in the Zero Suit).
  • Roy:
    • "Roy is in Super Smash Bros. 4!" Explanation 
      • Since the Young Lion's DLC release, it's become common to show art of the two Roys being friends, if not rivals.
    • Among the Japanese fanbase, Roy (FE) is associated with curry, thanks to the winner of a photo contest from the Melee days. There is always at least one curry-related post that can be seen floating around in his Miiverse sub-community, and even his Wii U/3DS reveal trailer references the photo.
    • Roy's our boy! Explanation

    • Following the above, "Dash Attack Does Not Work On Shield." Explanation 
      • For Glory Mode in general, primarily 1 on 1. There are not enough fingers and/or toes to count how many memetic montages of the mode there are on YouTube with many players who are of too many varying skill levels pit against each other out of complete disrespect and contempt towards one another due to the horrible matchmaking system. As a result, you have players who have trained non-stop to be able to crap on others who spam bad habits and/or plateau from such a bad learning environment.

    • Ridley is Captain America.Explanation 
  • Daisy:
    • Daisy Ridley confirmed for the new Super Smash Bros.! Explanation 
      • Come Isabelle's reveal, the meme becomes even funnier since Daisy's middle name is Isobel.
      • Because 3/4 of Daisy Ridley's full namenote  are playable in Smash Bros., fans jokingly speculate that a character named Jazz (Jazz Jackrabbit or Jazz from Transformers) or a jazz-related character will be playable. Barry B. Benson is also a popular suggestion (because "ya like jazz?")

    • Sheik Side BExplanation 
  • King K. Rool:
    • K. Rool's bizarre official character pose has been compared to him being sassy with the Kongs, going grocery shopping, or doing other casual things like using a light switch or operating a vending machine.
    • Due to K. Rool finally becoming a playable character in Ultimate, K. Rool's Finest Hour made the rounds. It was even used before he was formally announced, as something of a (joking) rallying cry for him to make it in.

    • Incineroar punching or performing a lariat on Lucas has developed its own collection of fanart due to how Lucas was used as a punching bag to demonstrate Incineroar's side special move. Some even depicted them as some weird alternate versions of Calvin and Hobbes.
    • Because Incineroar is a feline-esque character, Incineroar-in-a-box is a common piece of fanart done to it, particularly using Snake's cardboard box.
      If I fits, I sits!
    • If you're angry, he did his job right. Explanation 
    • "But wrestling's Fighting." Explanation 
    • Incineroar's recovery Explanation 
    • Alolan Whip puts Incineroar up close to the enemy, more than the usual grabbing space. A plethora of screenshots having Incineroar doing the move mid-way is quite popular. And then there's his back throw suplex animation, which has a part where he actually embraces the enemy, putting him as a Memetic Molester doing this kinky grab with multiple characters. There is an abundance of him doing this to Wolf for some odd reason.

Sakurai: Hello everyone, it is I, Masahiro Sakurai. I am here today to tell you we have ended the meme poll early and tallied up the votes. The results were...disappointing. But not unexpected. You've all wasted your memes. We have disregarded all your meme examples and only have one more Smash meme planned. We look forward to bringing you Red Link sometime in Winter. Never ask me for anything ever again.

Alternative Title(s): Super Smash Bros Ultimate
