  • "Chu-Chu dies for your sins!"
  • "Master, Sir, did you just see my MAD SKILLZ?!"
  • Interpretations of what the random English voice clip is saying during boss music. Sometimes it's "Total sentence imposed ten years" (which is what the clip is actually saying) but sometimes they come off as "Total sets in the gas chamber", "Having sex in the trash chamber", or "Sex in front of trash can"
  • To a lesser extent, "This video has violated YouTube guidelines".Explanation 
  • Memetic Molester: While Miang's experiments as Karen are stated in the story to be for the purpose of finding the Contact, one can't help but wonder whether some of the probing she did to Fei as a child was really necessary... On top of that, she comments on how "handsome" Fei is when he participates in the martial arts tournament, knowing that he's that same child who grew up. And don't think the girls are safe from her, either. Miang saves Elly from Dominia's wrath, only to get alone in a room with the Gebler-officer-turned-traitor and... admire Elly's eyes before hypnotizing her. We know about Miang's "arrangement's" to sabotage the Yggdrasil's engines using Elly, but were those the only ones?

  • You will not be able to hang around Xenosaga forums or watch Xenosaga videos for very long without hearing "SHION. MY APPEARANCE IS DOWN 5%. I NEED TO BE CLEANED." You just won't. She keeps the line as a joke in all of her crossover appearances.
    • Namco Bandai even hopped on the bandwagon with Tales of the Abyss. There is a doll that Anise can get (the Artificial Life Form) that gives Tokunaga KOS-MOS's visor, the X-BUSTER arte/attack, and the end battle quote of "Enemy appearance down 5%. They are nothing."
  • Helmer's "UUUUUUUUUUUU-DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" line from Episode I has gotten a lot of this, particularly in LPs.
  • A good chunk of Albedo's dialog, with Ma Belle Peche being to most notable.
  • Memetic Molester: Albedo is a little too fond with MOMO.

  • Shulk's "I'm really feeling it!" has become this as of Super Smash Bros., where he's saying it in his introduction trailer and as one of his taunts.

    • Someone attempted to follow that one up with "Do you know if Shulk is biologically related to paper?", but it didn't catch on quite as well.
  • Using the names Zanza, Bionis, and Meyneth in the manner of Oh My Gods! tends to be frequent as well.
  • "BESTEST", the description given to Riki by a nopon child shortly after returning from the battle with the Telethia, has also recently been approaching memetic levels as well, particularly among the YTP community. Other oft-quoted lines from Xenoblade YT Ps include:

  • "Justice for Melia!" and "Melia's out for revenge!" caught on once the "Future Connected" epilogue for the Definitive Edition was announced and Melia was all over the material for it, including the key art (which appears to show her with a Monado staff). The joke became that this was revenge for her getting the somewhat short stick of the story in the original game. Even the developers have mentioned in an interview that that's why she was included.

  • The Spirits image for Mythra in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has a fair bit of Adaptational Modesty, covering up her cleavage and giving her black leggings. Though some fans have complained about the censorship, other fans turned out to like the redesign overall, and others have noted it looks a lot like Ely's outfit. It was later added into both the main game and the expansion as an Aux Core for Mythra in an update a week before Smash's release.

  • Due to how Free Reports are shown in-game (displaying the ones with the most "yeahs" on Miiverse) the following have become memes due to the reports flashing on players' screens almost endlessly since the game launched, occasionally causing discussions of the game to devolve into just quoting the constantly recurring Free Reports.
