* The obscure MarvelComics superhero Captain Ultra (who became a standup comedian in his secret identity) once faced 'Angrr, The Demon Without Humor'. He defeated it by telling a joke. Justified in that it was a magical being vulnerable to comedy, though Ultra claims that "telling Ultra-Funny jokes" is ones of his powers (not likely.)

** More seriously, he also nearly manages to [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotHeinous paste Vetinari in the face with a pie.]] Given the reputation damage that would have resulted, and that in Anhk Morpork's political instability it could have ended Vetinari's tenure as patrician, Moist jumping in front of it is treated as TakingTheBullet.

* BoboboboBobobo is nothing BUT ComedyAsAWeapon - in-universe, it's an actual ''fighting style'' known as Hajike (Wiggin in English) used by most of the main characters. It mostly consists of unpredictable attacks sight gags and puns used to confuse or drive their opponents (and sometimes their allies) crazy.

Sometimes humor may be used to distract the amused opponent, while at other times the humorist may literally cause his audience to die laughing.
