The Internet Graveyard is a dimensional realm where dead memes (memes that are irrelevant and outdated with mainstream audiences), irrelevant YouTubers, and obsolescent trends go after quickly losing popularity. It was introduced in the episode SMG4: The Internet Graveyard and was one of the main locations in the YouTube Arc.
Role in SMG4: Mario Gets【Ｗｏｋｅ】 and SMG4: The Internet Graveyard
Mario sent Axol there by summoning the YouTube Content ID Bot during the events of SMG4: Mario Gets【Ｗｏｋｅ】. Axol's Inkweaver was broken upon arrival and he spent five years there (even though only three weeks passed in the real world, suggesting that time works differently in the Internet Graveyard), making him insane because of all of the dead memes that lived in the realm. After Mario and Luigi themselves were sent there by SMG3, an insane Axol started attacking the brothers, forgetting who they were.
After Mario started Naruto running, Axol regained his memories and tells the Mario Bros. how he got trapped in the Internet Graveyard. Mario asked about a way to get back home with Axol mentioning only one way out which was to make a dead meme relevant again. However, it was impossible to do.
Luckily, Mario knows SMG4, who is an expert on memes. However, they cannot call him since there is no phone reception in the Internet Graveyard. The only place with Wi-Fi is Starbucks near the realm's temple. After some time, they arrived at the temple, where they were quickly denied by the lords of the temple (which consists of 5 dead internet memes) for access to Starbucks. Their toilet started acting up however showing Mario what he must do. He fixes it, pleasing the dead memes and granting Mario and his friends access to Starbucks.
Mario, Luigi and Axol get into Starbucks, and thanks to the Wi-Fi signal, Mario was able to call SMG4 on his iPhone for help, thus informing him to revive a dead meme. SMG4, with his meme creating skills and some help from Meggy Spletzer and Bob Bobowski, managed to create a meme involving Harambe, posted it on Twitter, and gained millions of likes allowing the three to escape the Internet Graveyard.
Role in SMG4: Deleted
After obtaining the YouTube Remote, SMG3 came up with a plan to erase SMG4 and his gang (minus Mario) and send them to the Internet Graveyard, demonstrating how to erase an SMG4 cast member by erasing Frankie. He ended up succeeding, partially because Fishy Boopkins and Saiko accidentally altered their debut videos and ended up being sent to the Internet Graveyard.
After the events of SMG4: Deleted, the SMG4 cast and Susan Wojcicki were sent into the realm, where Mario rescued them. With SMG3's cell phone that Mario pickpocketed, SMG4 would use his phone to escape the graveyard.
Presumably, Frankie was sent to the Internet Graveyard as well.
SMG3 was banished to the Internet Graveyard by Susan and the YouTube Remote, after his defeat by his former teammates and SMG4's gang. In the Internet Graveyard, SMG3 starts a new podcast with Ugandan Knuckles as his guest, only to be attacked by the dead meme.
