*** From a meta point of view, it gets even funnier. The aforementioned friends in fires is the result of a bug in the coding for the spawning system every time an area is loaded. Most of the time, NPCs will simply spawn around a campfire. Sometimes, they'll spawn directly IN the fire, and take so much immediate damage from it that they die right then and there. If the developers caught it in playtesting, it was either too difficult or time-consuming to fix, or they simply felt it would be even more grim (and hilarious) to keep it in. Given that the same game engine and coding is used in the next two games, but bereft of this bug, it's likely the latter.

* Professor is a constant source of hilarious situation. But his most hilarious moment is when he's ranting at the stalker when they approach the Room... a phone near them starts ringing, professor denies the call and continues shouting at his now-totally-shocked companions. Only several seconds later he also realizes this phone ''is in the abandoned building several kilometers into the zone, with everything completely wiped out''. Followed by his CrowningMomentOfAwesome, when he decides ''to make a call''.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Plenty, [[BilingualBonus if you speak Russian]].
** Much of the conversations around campfires will consist entirely of Stalkers taking turns telling jokes to each other, many of which are hilarious.

*** On the other hand, this can be very convenient if the NPC in the fire is someone who carries a unique weapon. Oh, you want Bes's silenced AK but don't want to cap him yourself? Come back in half an hour, he'll be medium rare over the fire pit in the scrapyard. You don't have to kill him...[[BlackComedy you just have to wait for]] [[ImAHumanitarian his friends to get hungry enough.]]

* The PA announcements at the Freedom base in ''Clear Sky'' will occasionally be interrupted by arguments between the camp trader, Ashot, and the technician, Yar. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3yzVdCC5PA Listen for yourselves.]]

** To make this even funnier (in a way), [[spoiler: you can prime a grenade, and will throw it as you teleport into the bunker. And it will blow up '''right after''' he says the line. What the hell indeed.]]
* After the team you form in ''Call of Pripyat'' all makes it to Pripyat and finds out Degtyarev works for the military (which prompts Zulu to leave), all Strider has to say is "I don't give a rat's ass about who anyone works for."--in the same CreepyMonotone he says ''everything else'' in.
* When you check out the first Stingray in ''Call of Pripyat'' it [[TeleportingKeycardSquad causes a bunch of monsters to spawn and run at you.]] But since there's a minefield between you and them, most of the monsters get blown up when they run at you. This may have been deliberate, considering how much of a pain it was to get through the minefield to the chopper in the first place.
* Hawaiian is funny for being a living MoodDissonance. In the middle of the Zone he's trying to create a jovial, tropical atmosphere in his store, yelling "Aloha" and insisting "it can be fun around here!".

** He doesn't even sound all that shocked as much as he sounds annoyed that you showed up out of nowhere.
