It is a reference to the anime about girls who vaguely represent historical ships. Poi is the catchphrase for one of the destroyer characters.

Poi is a verbal tic that a character by the name of Yuudachi has at the end of her lines she speaks in the game and anime called Kantai Collection

Who was a Shiratsuyu class dd, hence the Shiratsuyu is a Poi Boat

Poi in Japanese means apparently, seems like, or supposedly. 

The Yuudachi in her final battle in real life charged through the middle of the American fleet launching torpedoes according to the Japanese reports. The American reports have her launching 1 torpedo and going down quickly by gunfire. The battle was a night action and there was tons of confusion.

In the anime Yuudachi says Poi a lot as a play on words over the confusion of her demise.

And because of that, the lead ship of Yuudachi's class, Shiratsuyu, is known as the "Poibote" in this game.

What is Poi? Poi is love...

And with that thought in mind...  @Snargfargle not sure if you have parodied it yet... but "what is Poi?" As a parody cover to "What is Love? - Haddaway"

So that's why she kept saying "this Poi," "that Poi," and "Poi Poi" all the dang time... LOL.

I actually felt like I wanted to slap her in the face at one point of watching the show, because it seemed like it was about to get too excessive... then the plot moveth and she disappeared for a while. Hooray. But then she came back with her upgradez and started going "Poi" again. LULZ.

Poi.

Hawaiian food? Point of Interest (GW2)? Person of Interest

Maybe it's like in another game where everyone yells "BACON!!!" at the beginning of each match, cause the game mode is called beacon. 

I have no idea. I guess Im too old to keep up with all these memes nowadays.   

Same here pard.

BTW folks, what the blazes is KEK? :cap_wander:
