** Also, the scene where Kaworu kills a kitty became Narmful if you know the "Kaworu kills kittens" meme. Yes, that meme. For the [[GenreBlind meme-blind among us]]: ---> [[spoiler: Every time you masturbate,]] Kaworu kills a kitten.

** Also, the The scene where Kaworu kills in which Yui straddles Shinji inside Unit 01 can be taken this way. It's supposed to be creepy, but it comes off like a kitty became Narmful if you know scene from a weird incest hentai manga. ** The alternate ending to the "Kaworu kills kittens" meme. Yes, that meme. For the [[GenreBlind meme-blind among us]]: ---> manga version is not nearly as poignant as ''EOE'' is, and it makes very little sense as well. The biggest PlotHole with it: [[spoiler: Every time you masturbate,]] Kaworu kills If Shinji remembers everything that happened to him before the world was reconstructed, why doesn't he recognize Asuka & Kensuke? Sure, ''Eva'' is a kitten.MindScrew, but there's a difference between mind screws and making ''no logical sense''.]]

* The official English translation of the TrinityBlood manga often uses some very... questionable translations for dialogue and sound effects. It kind of ruins the drama when the vampires insist on using YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe every time they speak, ''especially'' with [[TheScrappy Ion Fortuna]]. The fact that he keeps insisting on addressing himself as "we" really lessens whatever drama they were going for. The sound effects are just as bad; in the Gunmetal Hound chapters, a dude getting shot in the head apparently warrants the sound effects "Bonk" and "Splat". [[InherentlyFunnyWords BONK AND SPLAT, GUYS.]] There's also an entire panel, right in the middle of a tense, fast-paced fight scene, used to translate the large japanese sound effect as "a cold wind blows". [[FlatWhat What.]] * During a rape scene in the ''{{Zeorymer}}'' manga the attacker walks outside, breaks off an icicle from the roof, files off the pointy end with his teeth (very considerate of him), and uses it to continue raping the victim. This would be disturbing, except it happens right after a cheesy exposition monologue (also made while raping), so instead it just pushes the whole scene over the top and into funny territory, and it just gets funnier when you realize that the rape is [[GratuitousRape never mentioned again]]. * ''PandoraHearts'': See Elliot in Chapter 26 [[http://www.mangareader.net/350-24655-31/pandora-hearts/chapter-26.html here]] where [[FreudWasRight he holds a sword at crotch level]]. Oz [[http://www.mangareader.net/350-24655-35/pandora-hearts/chapter-26.html does it too.]]

* In ''BlackButler'' chapter 68 Ciel goes to a school where students have "butlers" which are called "fags". I laughed every time the word fag came up. "It's fag time!"

** Made even better/worse/whatever by how from then on, Kyuubey has BlackEyesOfEvil. It's so stupidly and ridiculously {{Anvilicious}} that it seems he's constantly tripping balls, or that the manga author thinks [[ViewersAreMorons the readers are complete idiots]] who need to be constantly told how eeeeeeevil he's supposed to be.

* The (highly controversial) manga ''Kodomo No Jikan'' is an odd example of this trope, as it's not any particualr ''scenes'' that are {{narm}}y but the greater elements in the series as a whole. The series is mostly a drama about elementary schoolgirls growing up, with a bunch of trashy {[lolicon}} {{fanservice}} mixed in. This makes the series as a whole ''very'' narmy, as the {{lolicon}} bits detract from the serious, ([[{{Melodrama}} melo]])dramatic storyline, and vise versa as well.

* ''MadBull34'' usually gets a pass because of NarmCharm, but the second chapter of the manga is... special. A junkie going through withdrawal takes a neighbor hostage in his apartment. Aside from his being fat for a long-term heroin junkie, what he does with the girl is ridiculous. Facing out the window with shotgun in hand, he forces her to grab his testicles and squeeze as if she wanted to crush them - reasoning that such intense pain will take his mind off the whole "my desire for smack is driving me mad" thing. Whatever you're imagining, it's more absurd than that. Subsequent chapters feature their fair share of bizarre and hilarious content, but this is the, ahem, high point.

* The entire fourth round of the ''LiarGame'' tournament gives the different players nicknames, usually based on their appearance. Thing is, these nicknames can sound condescending when they're spoken out loud, [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname which they are]]. So we get the eternally cheerful Nao calling people "Four-Eyes", "Baldy" and "Fatso", among other names, in the middle of otherwise serious discussions. ** LiarGame has a lot of this due to the characters' mouths opening ''way'' too wide when they're feeling particularly happy or surprised.

* In ThePrinceOfTennis, specifically New Prince of Tennis, when Atobe evolves to get his xray vision, it's really not a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

** The Norwegian translation falls into this by translating all English words, including the names of the humonculi. Andů the Norwegian equalents doesn't sound nearly as threatning. It was cancelled after the 7th volume as probably most interested people would pick up the English volumes online or in import stores for having many out already.

** The Norwegian translation falls into this by first showcasing the Japanese names of the attacks and having the translation between the panels, only to have them translated for the rest of the volume for some reason. As with the ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' does the Norwegian versions of the words not sound nearly as threatning falling into this. It was cancelled at the 22nd volume.
