* Vash's EstablishingCharacterMoment in the very first episode -- He reacts to gunmen destroying the bar he's drinking in by [[BadAss leveling his gun at them]]. Cool, right? Well, a few minutes later we see what really happened… He pulls the trigger several times getting nothing but clicks, opens the cylinder to see he forgot to load it, screams like a little girl, and runs away as the bandits fire at him.

!!Both Versions
* In "Hard Puncher" (Chapter 1/Episode 5), Vash is seemingly taken down, complete with blood on the floor. The looks on the mercenaries' faces when he calmly plugs the gun of one with his finger before appearing behind the rest with a jovial smile is absolutely hilarious.
** And immediately topped by him nailing each of them ''twice'' with a child's dart-gun when he's threatened... before saying "It's okay, shoot if you want - try your luck!" Then he reveals that the thugs used up their ammunition in the initial BlastOut. How did he know?
--->'''Vash''': "I counted."
* When Meryl tries to talk down the citizens of Inepril City with her megaphone (Ch.2/Ep.5). She's insanely loud but everyone just ignores her, and she has no idea until she gets shot at.
** Honestly, any time Meryl is onscreen during the Inepril episodes/chapters is comedy gold.
* Whenever Milly gets drunk, like at the beginning of Chapter 4 (Episode 6):
-->'''Milly:''' ''[-(7/8 unconscious)-]'' "I DISAGREE!! I can handle it! I am unique! I have a separate special stomach just for cake and ice cream!"
* When Milly thinks she's outwitted Vash by slipping a tracker into his food (Ch.4/Ep.20):
-->''[-(they follow the signal to under the table where Kuroneko-sama is eating the sandwich)-]''\\
'''Kuroneko-sama:''' Nyao~!\\
'''Milly:''' "Oh my god! He transformed into a cat!"
* At the end of "Little Arcadia" (Ch.10-12/Ep.14) Vash secretly saves everyone by pulling off a trick shot Meryl couldn't make – he had a good angle, she didn't… then [[BreakingTheFourthWall complains that it's the only screentime he's gotten all episode]].
* This bit of insanity from "Diablo" (Ch.13/Ep.12):
-->'''Vash''': THE DEADLY DODGEBALL HEAD! A simple technique to hold the ball in place with INTENSE SUCTION! [[DontTryThisAtHome Try this at home, kids]]!
** Pity a nasty case of MoodWhiplash happens literally the very next page (30 seconds later).
* Chapter 16/Episode 13, where Meryl and Milly walk in on Vash after he gets out of the shower, isn't funny by itself – it's actually rather disturbing – but Vash's "Kyaaa!!!" reaction destroys the drama.
* The battle with E.G. Mine in both versions (Chapter & Episode 16) is so pathetic it's funny. At least in the anime he got to actually fire his spikes; the manga didn't even give him that little dignity.
* Episode 19 / ''[=TriMax=]'' Chapter 1 -- The famous "Genocide Song":
-->'''Vash''': ''[-(singing)-]'' "Total slaughter... total slaughter... I won't leave a single man alive... la dee da dee daa... genocide... la dee da dee daa... an ocean of blood... let's begin the killing time."\\
'''Thug 1''': "He's... singing?"\\
'''Thug 2''': "What horrible lyrics!"\\
'''BigBad''': "Stay right where you are. He's just trying to scare you."\\
'''Vash''': ''(sighs)'' "I knew it wouldn't work."



* In the manga, Wolfwood looked like he was dying, and Vash was all like "DOOOOOOON'T DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" and Wolfwood was stating that he was only going to sleep.
** [[spoiler: [[HarsherInHindsight Uh...Your Mileage May Vary...]]]]
* The BigLippedAlligatorMoment with the black guy giving them the coin and asking whether they prefer fish or clams.
* Manga Wolfwood talking about how delicious the noodles he's eating are, then pulling a long-suffering face when he hears onlookers yelling about Vash fighting.
* [[http://mangafox.me/manga/trigun_maximum/vXX/c102/23.html The manga-only revelation that Meryl and Millie now work for a broadcasting agency]].

to:

* Nightow's {{omake}}s are hilarious. So are his gag covers (thankfully preserved in the 2003 Dark Horse release); Wolfwood is invariably paired with a blow-up doll.
* In the manga, one chapter, Wolfwood looked like he was dying, and Vash was all like "DOOOOOOON'T DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" DIIIIIIIEEEEEEE!" and Wolfwood was stating that he was only going to sleep.
** [[spoiler: [[HarsherInHindsight Uh...Your Mileage May Vary...]]]]
Kinda HarsherInHindsight when you consider what happens to Wolfwood later.
* The BigLippedAlligatorMoment with the black guy giving them the coin and asking whether they prefer fish or clams.
* Manga
Wolfwood talking about how delicious the noodles he's eating are, then pulling a long-suffering face when he hears onlookers yelling about Vash fighting.
* The way Gray The Nine-Lives is finally taken out in the manga: [[spoiler:He's crushed by a chunk of ceiling Meryl and Milly are sitting on top of.]]
* The BigLippedAlligatorMoment with the ScaryBlackMan giving Vash the final coin and asking whether they prefer fish or clams.

* Vash's EstablishingCharacterMoment: he reacts to gunmen destroying the bar he's drinking in by [[BadAss leveling his gun at them,]] pulls the trigger several times only for it to click, checks, then screams when he realizes he's out of bullets.
* Vash's full name in the anime.
-->'''Vash''': I am known as [[OverlyLongName Valentinez Alkalinella Xifax Sicidabohertz Gumbigobilla Blue Stradivari Talentrent Pierre Andrei Charton-Haymoss Ivanovicci Baldeus George Doitzel Kaiser III!]] Don't hesitate to call.

** At the end of that episode, [[MonsterOfTheWeek Descartes]] tosses his big-ass boomerang. Vash leaps over the weapon and sabotages the retraction mechanism so that it will wrap around Descartes and squeeze him into submission.
