New Challenger

A challenger appears is a catchphrase-turned internet meme derived from games such as Street Fighter 2. When a new character is introduced, the phrase "A Challenger Appears" shows up. Of course, there will always be serious people who whine about how that's not the exact wording and that wasn't the game in which it appeared originally, so variations of this may include "Here comes a new challenger" and "A challenger approaches".

On the internets, if a related but superior character is mentioned people will say a new challenger appears. Challenger is the key word for starting a brawl on 4chan.
