* The added chapter for ''Further Hildebrand Adventures'' has Gigi being kidnapped by three very aged adventurers. As the trio make a VERY slow retreat with the captive Gigi, Hildebrand considers pursuit hopeless and vows to rescue the captured Mammet. All of this causes Cyr's face to twitch uncontrollably in response before pointing out that they're escaping at an Adamantoise's pace.
** When the player must steal the armor from the elderly dragoon. After having him fall asleep and taking the armor, the game is very quick to ask WhatTheHellHero for leaving an old man asleep in the bitter cold in an area infested with Sun Bears and Morbols.

* The dungeon Great Gubal Library (Hard Mode), like its normal predecessor, features a number of readable books scattered through the level. These include a book of romantic poetry by a Lominsan Roegadyn [[spoiler:addressed to ''Brayflox'']], and a transcript of a meeting of Amdapori White Mages. The topic of discussion being how the naming scheme for cure spells is ridiculous and a numbering system would be much easier.[[note]]This also doubles as a meta joke where spells had their traditional -ara, -aga, and =aja suffixes in the early versions of the game and then the dev team decided to just give each spell a number to make it easier on players to remember.

* Patch 3.4: Soul Surrender continues the wonderful fount of comedy that is anecdotes of Alphinaud's youth. Upon being furnished with a fancy new outfit courtesy of Tataru, Alisaie and Alphinaud reminisce about how their previously identical outfits were a long-standing habit of their parents. Alisaie continues on, recalling an occasion once at school where a girlfriend of Alphinaud's came up behind her and whispered ''something'' to her...her brother is quick to cut her off with his usual embarrassed flourish.

* The 2016 Rising event takes to poke even more fun at Alphinaud and he doesn't even appear during it. The devs continue to shine a spotlight on the fact that, after seeing Y'shtola come out of the lifestream naked, he has what seems to be perpetual foot-in-mouth syndrome around her. It also pokes at how he'd draw girls back in his younger days to impress them. It's pretty clear that the poor boy has the hots for her something fierce. All of this packed into the description of the Dress-Up Y'shtola minion earned from the end of the event.
--> ''"This clockwork automaton has been crafted at the behest of the Adventurers' Guild in celebration of the Rising, Eorzea's annual celebration of rebirth. Alphinaud Leveilleur was apparently more than happy to submit a rough sketch for the design, despite never being asked."''

*** This is referenced again in the 2016 Rising event which rewards the player with the Dress-up Y'shtola minion. The description for the minion states that Alphinaud provided his sketch of Y'shtola to aid in the design for the minion's base. The description also makes it clear that he provided this despite no one asking him for it.

** Another possible ending has Louisox whisking the Warrior of Light away to safety while he deals with Bahamut himself. What makes this doubly funny is, despite the goofy music in the background implying that it's not the true ending, this ending is actually canonical in the game's main story!

* The 2016 Rising event retells the story of the Calamity in the form of a puppet/minion show with the player character as the lead actor. Just like the play in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', you can choose to screw up your direction and the results are hilarious:
** If you don't say what came out of Dalamud, a fat cat pops out instead of Bahamut.
-->'''Narrator''': They fought on until flagging and weary. The moon of Dalamud waxed ever fuller, at last bursting open to reveal the terrifying truth of what slumbered inside.It was...an enormous cat!? As round as the red moon and nigh as large, it fell to the ground, the impact of its landing knocked soldiers on both sides to the ground! And then, uh... Their hearts having been melted by the sight of such a cuddly creature, Garleans and Eorzeans alike lost the will to fight! They cast down their weapons, and embraced each other as brother and sister, returning home without further bloodshed! The gargantuan feline, moved by this display of camaraderie, purred with joy! Why, it's purring right now! Can you hear that? It's the sound of...the sound of peace.
** When asked whose voice the Warrior of Light heard when Bahamut breaks free, choosing the minstrel option has the Wandering Minstrel appear on stage and, in character, gives the Warrior of Light the hope to fight on and give him enough strength to defeat the primal by himself! Doubles as a heartwarming moment since the Wandering Minstrel thanks you for remembering him and giving him a chance to play on stage.
** If you act like you don't know whose voice you heard when Bahamut is freed, the troupe's carpenter wanders on stage and completely kills the immersion by trying to make sure Bahamut's fireworks effect has the right oomph.
--> '''Narrator''': But just as the sun was to set on Eorzea's fate, a voice called out, saving our brave champions from certain doom!
--> '''Crystal Caravan Leader''': The voice which called out for our hero was...our carpenter!? What in the seven hells are you doing!?
--> '''Crystal Caravan Carpenter''': Apologies, Chief, but the fireworks ain't...uh, firin' the way they should. I take pride in my craft, ye see. I just can't let such a thing stand without at least an honest attempt at fixin' it.
--> '''Crystal Caravan Leader''': And this is your idea of fixing things!? Barging onto the stage like a goobbue run amok!?
--> '''Crystal Caravan Carpenter''': *the fireworks go off in his face, knocking him to the floor* By the gods!
--> '''Crystal Caravan Leader''': Would you look at that, everyone? Impeccable craftsmanship! So impeccable that the realm was saved! And with that, today's show shall come to a close. Thank you, thank you one and all!
** When Louisox appears and fails to defeat Bahamut, saying that Bahamut was defeated in one fell swoop, the narrator states that the Warrior of Light thought [[AntiClimaxBoss the primal went down too easily]] until this happens:
--> '''Narrator''': Hearkening to his plea, They imbued the Warrior of Light with Their divine strength. Once more, our hero rose, and stood unflinching against Bahamut! Louisoix's incantation revitalized the Warrior of Light, and with a newfound tenacity he fixed his smoldering gaze upon the dragon...And in a flash Bahamut was defeated! The Warrior of Light was...surprised his foe was felled so easily...
--> Bahamut reappears.
--> '''Bestial Male Voice''': You shall rue the day you stood against me, foolish mortals! Tremble before me─Bahamut Omega! Tremble, and despair, for I am not the only dragon you must contend with! With my savage roar, I summon Bahamut Alpha, and Bahamut Beta, and Bahamut─
--> '''Crystal Caravan Leader''': No, no, no! We don't have all the puppets for─I mean... And so he spoke, on and on, until Bahamut named all of his kin. In fact, some say he is still talking to this day...

* The 2016 Moonfire Faire featured the Go Go Posing Rangers, which is totally [[MightyMorphinPowerRangers not a ripoff some some particular series]]. You had to work with and train 3 rangers to stop the King Bomb from ruining the event. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yR6UkK6KIU expression on the player's face]] when the ranger's appear is one to behold.

* In the second half of the level 15 Archer quest, the player's tasked with sneaking around a set of Ixal, picking them off as they proceed. It's suggested at the start that the PC not waste too much time on the minions, and indeed most can be avoided. Then, as the player approaches the boss of the area, an NPC named Miraudont the Madder [[LeeroyJenkins just dives in out of nowhere]], aggro'ing half the battlefield and turning what would have been an easy pull into a gigantic mess.
