The Top Ten

1 Its fanbase that treats jokes literally on the caliber of "pickle Rick" and "fart planet" as the type of humor that only the absolute highest class of intellectuals can properly grasp the true meanings and implications behind - Rick & Morty
2 Luigi Memes, The Year Of Luigi, and "that one TopTens user we shall never mention the name of again" claiming him to be stronger than Goku, smarter than Solid Snake and more powerful than Samus Aran - Luigi from Super Mario Bros

You completely forgot about "Game Theory: Why Mario is Mental", which is what also makes Luigi extremely overrated. - TheYoshiPyro64

3 Has a fanbase that STILL considers it to be the greatest rhythm game to ever exist, all while comparatively treating both of its vastly superior sequels as mediocre wannabes - Parappa The Rapper
4 Basically becoming the blindly nostalgia-defended, horribly-dated Ocarina Of Time of indie games - Cave Story
5 Has at least roughly four MILLION views per video on his main Youtube channel and has well over a hundred parody channels made in his likeness - I Hate Everything
6 Lammy has SEVEN solid pages and counting of Rule 34 made about her on Paheal.net, not to mention a 20,000-word-long giantess fanfic in which Parappa erotically slithers his way up her ear canal and literally fornicates with her brain - Um Jammer Lammy
7 There is seriously an entire cult of people out there that unironically finds the film good and praises it as "one of mankind's greatest works of comedic art" - Freddy Got Fingered
8 The Great Mighty Poo is almost literally the only more-than-mildly-funny-for-non-Beavis-and-Butthead-watchers thing in the entire "funniest" game "ever" - Conker's Bad Fur Day
9 Is also treated as yet another one of the game's infamous memetic sex goddesses, was once erotically shipped with the Amalgamates, and even became one of fanfiction's very first brain-fetish victims in Alphys VS Undyne - Alphys from Undertale
10 Vinny and Joel are literally the ONLY reasons that the community is even still in business, and even then, the two of them are both considerably better at creating memes than they are at creating actual Let's Play streams - Vinesauce
