Memberberries are a sentient fruit first used by Mr. Mackey in his office. Later, Stephen Stotch shows them to Randy Marsh. In "Member Berries", they were introduced by J.J. Abrams when the U.S. Representatives implore him to reboot the national anthem by saying, "We need your memberberries!"
Their main function is to remember pop culture icons, bringing about nostalgic feelings for the supposed good times of the past. Most commonly, they bring up memorable moments and elements from the original Star Wars trilogy.
However, they also make conservative comments, such as remembering when marriage was only between a man and a woman, when there weren't so many Mexicans, and Ronald Reagan.
In "Fort Collins" they seem to be aware of their surroundings as they were seeing a normal memberberry experimented on. They flee from the Marsh household and hold another memberberry hostage with them and throw in Caitlyn Jenner's drink.
They also seem to be indestructible as one was seen burned by a torch, acid, and electrified with little to no effects. However, they can be squished and eaten.
They appear as a cluster of light purple berries, quite similar to grapes, with a face on each individual drupe. They speak in soothing but very high-pitched voices.
One memberberry named Tubbs is much bigger than the others and speaks in a lower-pitched voice. Furthermore, there are three old-looking memberberries.
The memberberries are the physical manifestation of the idiom "sour grapes", used to refer to a negative attitude to something because they cannot have it themselves.
At first, they appear to only remember pop culture from the '80s and '90s, mostly Star Wars and the soundtrack “Africa” by Toto, but they are shown to have a different side also remembering conservative and racist ideologies from those decades.
Starting in "Fort Collins", they are shown to be more aware of Randy and Mr. Garrison's attempts on destroying their entire species, and a group consisting of 5 (later 6) memberberries escape the Marsh household, setting off to kill another memberberry by dropping it off into Caitlyn Jenner's drink. The memberberry doesn't show signs of pleading for mercy, as it says "That's okay, I 'member!" before being dropped into the drink. Judging by this, the memberberries are fine with death just as long as they'll be eaten. One reason of that might be that being eaten might be their original purpose as their conservative memory contents seems to live on in the person that eats them.
A group of elderly memberberries seem to want everyone to remember about the violent times in history like the German WW I Stormtroopers.
