Sometimes certain additional criteria are included with the hilarity to help classify it, i.e. "hilarity ensues, but not in the romcom sense, but rather in the sense of Film/TheStoryOfRicky".

* ''VideoGame/{{Runbow}}'' is this when there's a good amount of players present, especially the maximum of ''NINE'' players at once. Even more hectic on the stages with tricky platforming, and if you want more hilarity, set the items to "Chaos" before starting a local game or private online room.

* Thomas Wilde and Dan Birlew's [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/gamecube/file/535836/2204 Resident Evil Plot Analysis]] frequently uses the phrases "hilarity ensues" when giving the preliminary outline to the plot of a game. Since the games involve zombies, mutants, {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s, and vast amounts of death, it's safe to say this is ''slightly'' ironic...

* There are an enormous amount of hilarious accidents that happen to people but which people come out of alright. The Internet would be made out of these videos and photos if it weren't for cats (half the cat videos are these situations anyway). These could have resulted in debilitating injuries but everything worked out and a good laugh was had and remembered down the years.

* A key part of the concept on ''Anime/{{Himawari}}'' Himawari has decided to attend a school for ninja, despite knowing little about ninja other than what she's learned from a television show and the fact her life was once saved by a ninja when she was very young. Meanwhile, her classmates are all already far more advanced. Naturally, hilarity ensues.

** Similarly, people confused the family film ''Film/JackFrost1998'' with ''Film/JackFrost1997''.

Variants include "...with hilarious consequences" (more common in the UK), "wackiness ensues", and "hijinks ensue." In extreme cases "wacky hijinks ensue." Both hijinks ''and'' hilarity are often "aplenty." Compare SillinessSwitch, when the hilarity is a choice in an otherwise serious medium.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'', Gumball, Darwin, and Anais are trying to sneak out of a theater without getting caught. When Gumball gets stuck to "fossilized soda" on the floor, Darwin suggests that Gumball might have to [[NakedPeopleAreFunny take off his clothes]] and try to escape leading to all sorts of wacky shenanigans. [[WrongGenreSavvy That doesn't happen]].



* A lot of times, little kids manage to pull this off. When a three-year-old calls Uncle Bob fat or says that Grandpa sure has a lot of gray in his hair, it tends to be kind of funny. When ''you'' do it, expect to get a lot of {{death glare}}s aimed your way. They even [[Series/KidsSayTheDarndestThings built a whole series on this]].

* ''TabletopGames/{{Fiasco}}'' also has this written into the rules. In set-up, people create characters by defining their relationships to each other, motivations and attached places and objects, meaning that everyone is automatically placed at cross-purposes to each other, usually with elements written with such a tone as to encourage the creation of UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist-type characters. There are only two outcomes in ''Fiasco'' - Good and Bad - and these are either determined by the other players on the table by consensus for your character, or determined by you at a penalty of allowing the other players on the table to determine whatever ridiculous thing your character is actually doing to succeed or fail at. The result is that everything soon goes spectacularly wrong, and after half of the game is played, an event called "The Tilt" happens which adds a bunch of extra, awful events on top of everything that inevitably is already going wrong. The mechanics make it very difficult for characters to have a happy ending, with getting out of the situation back where you started but with a bunch of fresh physical and emotional scars being about as best as a player can hope for unless they get really lucky. That said, most players like to [[BlackComedy play to lose]].

* People have reported (complained) about getting/downloading what they thought was Disney's ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' for their kids when it ended up being [[SimilarlyNamedWorks the OTHER]] ''Film/{{Frozen}}'' with a group of tasty friends stuck in the snow on a ski lift and hungry hungry wolves.
