  • please feel free to join the editing of this article, especially in the Spread and Notable Examples sections!

    About

    With Great Power also know as “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility” is a quote spoken by Spider-Man’s Uncle Ben, used in forums to indicate a post that will feature a Spider-Man meme. When not used in direct reference to Spider-man, it can express that a person has so much skill that they only need to demonstrate it in order to win an argument or competition.

    The phrase can be used in its whole form, but often the word “responsibility” is swapped out for something that rhymes or completes an alternate joke. It is especially suited for use in image-macro form because of its dual-part construction.

    Precursor

    The quote “With great power comes great responsibility” is variously attributed to the Oevres de Voltaire, Volume 48 (1829)[1], Thomas C. Hansard’s Parliamentary Debates (1827)[2], and a variety of other sources and other derivations. The first instance of the quote in Spider-Man was Amazing Fantasy #15, August 1962, otherwise known as the first Spider-Man story.

    Origin

    While the earliest use of the phrase on the internet is unknown, many memes point to either an original Spider-Man reference or a video when in the 2002 version of the film Spider Man, Peter Parker’s uncle Ben speaks the line during a heartfelt scene. This clip was posted to March 10th, 2010.



    The first known applications of the phrase to images was with Demotivational Posters. The image on the left is probably circa 2004; The image on the right was created May 16th, 2008.



    Spread

    Two years after the video clip of Uncle Ben speaking to Peter was posted to YouTube, in August 2011, users began to create image macros, sometimes called “Uncle Ben’s Words of Wisdom” using variations on the phrase over a screen capture from the film.



    The phrase and its snowclones spread to images of Spiderman around the same time, including lots of crossover with ’60s Spider-Man.

    In addition, the phrase and its variations are commonly used as bait-and-switch forum post titles. There are 129 posts across Reddit[3] with the exact phrase “With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility” and thousands of others with variations or substituted words.

    On July 24th, 2010, With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story[4] was released, using the famous phrase to tell the story of Spider-man’s creator.

  • About

    VIP Teacher (Japanese: VIP先生, Bippu Sensei), also called “Mariotropolis” (マリオトロポリス), refers to a series of parodies and remixes inspired by phonetic translations in a flash movie featuring a fan-made Super Mario RPG song. On the Japanese web, this was one of the most famous memes originated in 2channel’s /news4vip/ board, and it also had a large affect on the early days of the video remix culture in niconico Douga (niconico).

    Origin

    In around the beginning of May 2005, a Spanish blogger Javi Agenjo, also known as tamat, uploaded a flash movie titled “Mariotropolis” on his website.[1] It is consisting of a weird dancing robot acted by German actress Brigitte Helm[2] in 1927 silent Sci-Fi film Metropolis[3] and a ROBOVoice remix version for Super Mario RPG Song. The flash creator cited the audio track from a YTMND page submitted in April 2005[4], but it was originally posted to Newgrounds by DJ XBrav in June 2004.[5]



    Spread

    This cheap but addictive flash movie caught an attention among users in 2channel where phonetic translations, or Soramimi[6], had become a popular flash movie trend by the hits of “Numa Numa” and “Moskau” in those days. And the biggest reaction was drawn from the /news4vip/ board since the phonetic translation for a phrase “Peeps Insane”, “Bippu Sensei” (lit. “VIP Teacher”), win the hearts of the board users usually called VIPPER. Just after the first thread for this flash movie was submitted to /news4vip/ board early on May 8th, 2005[7], heavy traffic surged at tamat’s server. According his blog post on the evening of the same day, the number of access from Japan in that day had reached over 20,000 and he had to take down it to avoid exceeding the transfer limit for that month.[8] Many parody flash movies and pictures for VIP Teacher were quickly created by getting inspirations from silly phonetic translations given from VIPPERs, and those are archived into a portal site for VIP Teacher which was launched on the following day.[9]

    Besides, tamat revealed in another blog post in the following year that his “Mariotropolis” also caught some attention in France as well.[10]

    niconico

    VIP Teacher brought back into the spotlight in the first half of 2007 by the launch of niconico. The “Mariotropolis” flash was reprinted to niconico from the very beginning of the service[11], and VIP Teacher has become one of the classics in niconico’s video remix culture as shown by the song being included into “Kumikyoku Nico Nico Douga”, the second track in the original Nico Nico Medley series released in June 2007.[12] On November 30th 2013, it made a headline on the Japanese web that a niconico user shota made the HD Remastered Version for VIP Teacher (shown below) from the blu-ray edition for Metropolis released in 2010.[13]


    Niconico 【HDデジタルリマスター】VIP先生【高画質高音質】

    VIP Teacher also brought a large online popularity to the original song “Beware the Forest’s Mushrooms” (森のキノコにご用心) composed by Yoko Shimomura.[14] Since after the hit of a Lucky StarMAD video in the summer of 2008 (shown below)[15], this song has been sometimes utilized in MADs.[16]

  • WWE Bitter Over Young Bucks Turning Them Down.

    - In a post on the Wrestling Observer message board, Dave Meltzer wrote that the line from Mark Henry to Roman Reigns on Smackdown about the “young bucks” never being anywhere was a direct shot by WWE officials on the Young Bucks tag team.

    The remark is a result of WWE officials still being apparently bitter because the Young Bucks turned down a tryout for the company last year. In addition, the recent “Superkick Party” edition of WWE Fury from last month on YouTube was also meant to be a subtle shot at the Bucks, as it is a term associated with the tag team.

    http://411mania.com/wrestling/wwe-bitter-over-young-bucks-turning-them-down/


    Backstage Latest On WWE Taking A Shot At The Young Bucks, “Superkick Party” Talk

    It appears WWE is really still bitter over The Young Bucks turning down a tryout in 2014. We’ve noted how WWE has applied to trademark the “too sweet” hand gesture, which is used by The Young Bucks and New Japan Pro Wrestling’s popular Bullet Club stable.

    We also noted how Mark Henry apparently took a shot at the brothers during his SmackDown segment with Roman Reigns last week as he said you “young bucks” haven’t been anywhere, talking down to Reigns. Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted on his message board that people within WWE report the line by Henry was indeed done to take a shot at The Bucks. Back in February, WWE posted a “Fury” video on YouTube that was the “Superkick Party” edition. There was some chatter that this was also done to take a shot at the brothers and apparently that is the case. The term “Superkick Party” has been used by The Bucks for some time now. We heard a few months back that the superkick move and the word “superkick” was being used on WWE TV a lot more. WWE has had restrictions on the move because it was once considered to be the sacred move of Shawn Michaels. There was talk within WWE that when The Bucks turned WWE down last year, WWE decided to up the use of superkicks in matches.

  • WORK IN PROGRESS. FEELFREE TO REQUESTEDITORSHIP

    About

    Catgirls, also known as Neko or Nekomimi, is the name given to any female character with cat traits, normally defined by having cat ears, tails, and sometimes even cat paws. A Catgirl differs from a cat furry. This is because while a cat furry has the physical characteristics of a cat a Catgirl simply looks like a human with cat parts added on. Catgirls have become a popular trope on anime.

    History

    The earliest instance of the female-cat hybrid is Bastet, the Egyptian goddess of cats, protection, joy, dance, music, and love.[1] The first modern story which introduced a ear’d character is The 4th of Narcissus Month (水仙月の四日) by Japanese author Kenji Miyazawa on 1924.[2]

    About

    Mecha (メカ) is a science fiction[1] genre based around the use of giant robots as machines to be piloted by humans, usually to stop an evil force from harming the Earth, or individual nations within it. The robots themselves are known as mechs by fans of the genre.

    Origin

    While the earliest depictions of piloted machines stretch back to H.G. Wells’[2]The War of the Worlds[3], the modern mecha genre did not enter into its current state until the manga series Tetsujin 28-go[4] which depicted a giant robot being remotely controlled, and Mazinger Z[5] where the mechs are being controlled via a pilot in a cockpit.

    History

    Since the popularization of mecha in the 1960s, the genre has spawned a number of successful anime and manga franchises such as Gundam, Space Runaway Ideon[6], Evangelion, and Gurren Lagann. Along with these several video game franchises focused on mecha have also spawned, such as MechWarrior[7], Shogo[8], and Zone of the Enders[9].
