* On Windfall Island, you can play a Battleship-like game in a shop for a Piece of Heart, complete with sound effects being provided by the very bored man who runs the place. The "splooooosh!" sound he makes every time you strike an empty square is priceless, not to mention his face if you say you didn't understand his explanation.
** His attempt to portray the children you saved is also hilarious, but pales before his antics at the cannon minigame on another island. Win there and he plays the role of a flirtatious young woman... which happens to be Tetra.

explanation. What really sells it are the various wooden boards he uses as costumes, with a space cut out for his face to show through, as he plays each part for you.

** You can find him sleeping on that island as well. Instead of sleeping in a bed like literally anyone else would, he's still at his gaming counter, sitting upright, and...holding one of his wooden costumes, this one being of a ''full pajama set''.

** A normally unrelated bit of comedy: hitting Beetle's ship with a bomb causes gratuitous amounts of smoke to come pouring out the front. Normally, this is just random and funny. After this stunt, it can be hugely cathartic.

** That scene is closely rivaled by the cutscene after Link places all three pearls of the goddesses. After placing the last pearl, the statue [[PreExplosionGlow begins radiating beams of light]]. Link naturally yells and dives for cover moments before the statue... does nothing. Cut to Link's bewildered reaction, after which he goes back to inspect the sta-KABOOM! "[=WAAAAAAaaaaaaaa...=]" [[ATwinkleInTheSky *ding*]]

** Even funnier- as the Tower of Gods rises, dramatic music plays in the background, [[MoodWhiplash cutting off suddenly as Link impacts.]]

** Made funnier due to her ending every other sentence by addressing Link as some variation of "my child" or "young one", saving the aforementioned flirting for the very end. You know just by her position alone that despite her demure appearance, there's still a significant age gap between the two of them...but her own dialogue tells us that ''she's'' just as aware of the implications!

* The first meeting with the Deku Tree. He sees how Link is dressed and starts speaking ancient Hylian, which only he, the other spirits, Medli, and the King of Red Lions [[spoiler:actually King Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule]] can even understand nowadays. After a few lines of unintelligible dialogue, it cuts to Link, slackjawed and having no idea what he's supposed to say.

** Oh, but you can go so much further! Target it and throw your boomerang at it--its head'll spin on its socket, and it'll have to stop and knock it back into place.

** Or lure them close together so that they accidentally hit one another trying to attack you. After a couple of hits they'll lose their temper and hit their fellows in revenge!
* The NewGamePlus bonus of not wearing the traditional green outfit is introduced in the most hilarious of fashions. Link's grandmother hands him nothing and he has this miserable look on his face. She asks him what's wrong; it's apparently made of a special material that only the honest can see - which becomes a running gag as you get to see which characters in the game are honest. The ItemGet text is confused by trying to say "Link got... nothing? wait..." and Link pretends to put the clothing over his pajamas and then you realise throughout the whole game Link was wearing his pajamas underneath the green outfit!

* After conducting the Wind God's Aria with Makar the first time, the player can hear a round of applause, even though there is no visible audience onscreen. Then Link and Fado, who apparently can hear it too [[BreakingTheFourthWall bow to the player]], who may presumably be the one who's applauding.

** Also, related to the auction, you may notice that one of the Treasure Charts that gets put up on the block has a starting bid of only five Rupees. (The other chart starts off at around 40 or so.) The sunken chest this chart leads to is near Windfall Island itself. Its contents? [[spoiler: A single ''Green Rupee''.]] [[JokeItem Better collect lots of them!]]

* Ganondorf's expression after [[spoiler: Komali and Quill swoop in to snatch Link and Tetra right out from under him.]] It's like a mixture of disappointment and him asking himself, "Wait, what just happened?"

* Makar's instrument is actually a violin, but because he's so tiny he has to play it like a cello. He uses a stick over twice as tall as he is for a bow.

* The early scene in ''Wind Waker'' where the pirates reveal ''exactly'' how they plan to get Link into the Forsaken Fortress may well be one of the ''funniest'' things in the entire Zelda universe, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrcQnugPpYk bar none]]. Link needs to get inside, but the place is swarming with patrol boats. So what do they do? Stick Link in a barrel, put him on a catapult, and wish him "Bon voyage!" Seriously. The look(s) on Link's face during the countdown itself are ''priceless'' -- but the pure slapstick of him splatting into the wall on the other side once they launch him is pretty good too. (The only thing that's not funny is the [[StealthBasedMission stealth-due-to-]][[NoGearLevel lost-sword]] that follows.)

** Heck, throwing Medli or Makar into a wall is pretty funny, whether on purpose or on accident (maybe even more so if you discover you can do it by accident). [[VideogameCrueltyPotential Mean, yes]], but still pretty funny, since you can do it over and over again without actually hurting them (as they have no LifeMeter).
