Grab a 1-Up and chill with these hilarious Nintendo memes
Nintendo has always been a source of joy for gamers, but fandom for the company has reached a new level since the Nintendo Switch’s release in 2017, and since the initially hard-to-come-by console has trickled into the homes of fans around the world.
In 2021, Nintendo’s fluffy world of rounded edges & lush pastures is a welcome escape for gamers, and we can only agree that if given the choice, we’d often opt for Nintendo’s universe over our own (reality is overrated, anyway).
Those with a passion for the world of Nintendo need look no further than Twitter to find like-minded gamers who’ve been bitten by the Nintendo bug. Twitter’s tidal wave of Nintendo memes run the gambit of the company’s most beloved characters, and from the tiniest ShyGuy to the most threatening Kremling, no one’s spared.
We’ve gathered up some of the best Nintendo memes on Twitter for every Nintendo fan, from Kirby stans to Zelda die-hards. Letsa go!

For most people in 2021, Nintendo is on your radar because of the everlasting buzz of Nintendo’s latest & greatest invention: the Nintendo Switch console. Super innovative, portable, and equipped with a two-piece multiplayer controller, the Switch is buzzing for good reason. However, limited edition Switches continue getting harder to resist.

The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo’s most beloved franchises, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of Nintendo Switch’s most talked about games. This The Emperor’s New Groove crossover gives Breath the meme treatment.

There’s nothing better than feeling like Link IRL. Back in the day, all it took to feel that Link energy was a few magic markers.

Mario is perhaps Nintendo’s most beloved character, but that doesn’t mean all his games are hits. Move over, Dr. Mario, we have a new worst Mario game, and this meme shows how we all feel about it.
