A mondegreen is the mishearing or misinterpretation of a phrase as a result of near homophony, in a way that gives it a new meaning. A closely related category is the soramimi, which are songs that produce different meanings from those originally intended when interpreted in another language. The unintentional use of similar-sounding words or phrase in speech is a malapropism.

Because not everybody knows German, many German and some Russian expressions from Downfall have been interpreted by people who speak little or none of either language in many humorous ways, and some have even become famous expressions. They are usually pointed out in "X says Y for Z minutes" video series.

The following is a [non-exhaustive] list of mondegreens, listed by character surname, and sorted chronologically:
