SUPER MEME BROTHERS!!
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.

Ultimate alone has so much it has its own page.

    • Some people will also point out that Bandai Namco, who developed Ultimate, also have Akuma, Geese Howard, Noctis, and Negan in Tekken 7, which they also developed (and published), which gives them the rare honor of having developed two "official" M.U.G.E.N games.

  • Fanrules Explanation

    Characters 
  • Mario confirmed Explanation 
  • Samus/Zero Suit Samus:
    • The Hotter and Sexier design of Samus's Zero Suit has resulted in everyone getting drawn in her Zero Suit, and we do mean everyone.
    • Zero Suit Samus' physique in Ultimate gained a ton of attention upon release for the more toned and buff appearance, leading to a massive amount of fanart and appreciation shortly afterwards.
      • Nerfed boobs, but overall buff. Explanation 
  • Yoshi's out-of-shield animationExplanation 
  • 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.

    • "Okay" Explanation 
    • PK FIRE Explanation 
    • Smash 4 Back Throw Explanation 
  • 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:
  • 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.
  • Emo Pichu. Explanation 
  • Falco: "Soumen" Explanation

    • Any variation of calling Marth a girl. Explanation 
    • His white costume looking like a wedding dress.

  • Ganondorf:
    • Ganondunk! Explanation 
    • Ganondorf, King of Disrespect! Explanation 
  • MEWTWO!! MEWTWOOOO!! OH MY GOD!!Explanation 
  • 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.
      • Another common joke is to show all the Fire Emblem characters, but replacing Roy with Roy.
    • 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 
    • t3h ph1r3 Explanation 
  • Meta Knight:
    • Brawl Meta KnightExplanation

    • 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 superhero in the vein of Anpanman.
    • Buff Ike Explanation 
  • Diddy Kong: Hoo! Hah! Explanation 
  • Lucas:
    • Winning won't bring Claus backExplanation (SPOILERS) 
  • Sonic the Hedgehog:
    • "YOU'RE TOO SLOW!" Explanation 
    • "NOW I'LL SHOW YOU!!! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!"Explanation 
    • The other taunt, "COME ON! STEP IT UP!", gets this a lot too. Like the side taunt, this was changed in Smash 4 as well, specifically shortened to just "Come on!"
    • "You're going to Minecraft!" Explanation 
  • King Dedede:
    • Dedede is already perfect.Explanation 
    • Gordo Explanation

    • Dicking on (Little) Mac. 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.
  • 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 
    • ◥θ┴θ◤ Explanation 
  • Mii Fighters:
    • Reggie Vs. IwataExplanation 
    • Making a Mii Fighter of anyoneExplanation 
    • Mii impostorsExplanation 
  • Pac-Man:
    • After his 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 a very casual "not really").
    • Smash 4 Pac-Man's grabExplanation 
      • "Pac-Man's grab feels faster" Explanation 
    • Pac-Man mains have the highest IQ. 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 
  • Shulk:
    • I hope you enjoy my good friend Shulk :)Explanation 
    • Now it's Shulk time!Explanation 
    • "I'm really feeling it!"Explanation 
    • "Odayaka janai desu ne?" Translation  Explanation 
    • "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).
  • The dog from Duck Hunt is a Stand user.Explanation 
    • The Wii Fit Trainer is a Hamon Master.Explanation 
  • Ryu:
    • "Talk is cheap." Explanation

    • The year is 20XX. Everyone plays Fox. Explanation 
      • 20XX IS NOW!Explanation 
      • 20GXExplanation 
    • As of the 3DS and Wii U Smash games, No Items and Final Destination have achieved Ascended Meme 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! Explanation 
      • 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.
    • The opening cinematic of Ultimate has Fox standing on Final Destination with no Items in sight, another reference to the meme.
  • No JohnsExplanation 
    • This one got a small revival in 2014 after Reggie Fils-Aimé 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.

    Fan Videos 

    Forums (usually GameFAQs) 
  • 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. Chairzard, Snoic, Noss, or especially Metrod, which also adds the "Samus is not Metroid" meme to the mix) on the GameFAQs board for Brawl.

    Masahiro Sakurai 
  • JAPAN TIMEExplanation 
    • Sakurai: -laughs-Explanation  King Dedede is also associated with this meme, since he laughs and is voiced by Sakurai. Probably Ascended Meme status in Ultimate's reveal trailer for K. Rool, where King Dedede fakes being the much requested character. Dedede then starts laughing madly until the real K. Rool shows up.
