*** This can also be invoked by the player. The game allows the player to customise their trainer with clothing and haircuts. Naturally, one can proceed to put together an outfit with [[WTHCostumingDepartment absolutely clashing colours and bizarre combinations]] during story cutscenes, especially if you were crowned as champion.


Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'':
*** The characters' models are expressive... the main character, however, has a locked facial expression in a grin, which makes them look like a total psychopath or an IdiotHero who does not comprehend the seriousness of any situation that s/he is in.
*** This can also be invoked, just like in ''X and Y''. Make your trainer have the most ridiculous looking outfit, haircut, and colour combination.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/PokemonGO'' attempts to replicate the beginning of the games wherein you meet the professor. Which, given his [[http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/thumb/e/e6/GO_Professor_Willow.png/170px-GO_Professor_Willow.png somewhat goofy clothing choices]], can come off as weird.


Added DiffLines:

** Try killing civilians with the weapons. The death animations are ''so'' funny, and they retain them. Some fun examples include the hotel receptionist going "AAAAGH!" and ''faceplants'' on the desk (while ''smiling''), the blacksmith grabs his neck and crotch and ''stands there'' even when he's dead. Ben, however, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zy4t_35Wfw&t= bends backwards 90 degrees]]. To say the game has ''not'' aged well is drastically underplaying the unintentional comedy.


Added DiffLines:

** Svala Sorrowgrave sounds like she smoked for way too many years, and when you kill her in Utgarde pinnacle, her death quote sounds like she threw up at the end.
--> "I did not come this far to.... BLEEEEEEEGH!"


Added DiffLines:

** Cataclysm features some... questionable voice acting.
*** General Husham in the Lost City of the Tol'vir sounds like [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 The Heavy]] and when he dies, shouts "TURN BACK. BEFORE. IT IS TOO. LATE."
*** "AL AKIR! YOUR SERVANT CALLS FOR AID!"
*** One wonders how the voice actors for the Stonecore kept a straight face, saying such gems as "Break yourselves upon my body! Feel the strength of the earth!" and another smoker-voiced woman shouting, "Witness the power bestowed upon me by deathwing... FEEEL the FURY of ''EARTH''!"
*** BEHOLD! The power of ''PURE WATER''!

** The "game over" in Creature of Kapu Cave where you accidentally are caught trespassing by a short-tempered professor.
** Nancy's scream of pain in one game.
** ''Haunting of Castle Malloy'' does not have a "Culprit", instead the "Culprit" is... a [[spoiler: 70 year old feral woman flying around on a jet pack]]. ItMakesSenseInContext but it's pretty obvious that a lot of people would find it hard to take seriously.
** Invoked by some of the game-over scenarios. Some of them are so over-the-top (but are plausible enough in context, such as an accident that doesn't ''kill'' Nancy but gets her arrested or fired) that they come off as outright hilarious, and not just in the [[BlackComedy sick ways]]. In fact, players often try to find all the game-over scenarios, sometimes going on multiple times.



** WordOfGod states they actually ''invoked'' this - they designed some of the "Violence" to be so unrealistic and over the top that kids wouldn't ''think'' to try it in real life.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/LuminousArc2'' has one particular moment where one of the characters is having a HeroicBSOD when encountering the same black fire that killed her parents when she was very young and subsequently developed a ''huge'' fear of. But both the line and the delivery become this when, "Aaahhh! Nnnooo! Fire! I'm so afraid!" is done with the actress sounding more like she spilled a glass of milk.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/KingsQuestV'' gives us several:
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrFcWcRmjec Graham, watch out! A POOOOOOI-sonous snake!]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCQsEEtJw48 Beyond here's the crystal cave, here you will find the yeti]].


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SpaceChannel5'' itself is a WidgetSeries with many of its really silly elements (The dancing aliens, the space police, Ulala outperforming Pudding on her own show) invoked and PlayedForLaughs, but the second game makes a few situations rather narmy. Mostly in stage four wherein Fuse is zapped with a laser. Despite that Fuse is only inside a ship, the electricity somehow hits him and he makes a scream.
** Later on, Noise says "There's no power! All that's left is dance and jiggy power!". Ulala is then dancing under duress, and develops a vaguely southern sounding accent. (Given that stage throws ''twenty two step commands'' at you, some players didn't pay attention to this.)
** Fuse's english line "Man, that ain't just good, that is PERFECT!" makes him sound like someone is attempting a stereotypical CampGay voice... or like he is [[ADateWithRosiePalms doing something else inside his ship as he watches it]].
** In stage 6, the invisible wall. Everyone pounds on it in sync except for Ulala who didn't walk into it.
** Can be invoked by the player themselves via costumes. Put Ulala in a really silly costume and watch as the silliness turns UpToEleven. In fact, the player ''has'' to do this in Ulala's dance mode to unlock some things, and it can be quite hilarious seeing the human dancers mimic Ulala in the Morolian pose.
** From the first game, one optional stage featured Ulala trying to rescue a hostage... who is literally described as a "Boy toy".
--> "They've got a boy toy!"

* ''Videogame/AloneInTheDark2008'' is dripping with it.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5k8KYp0aaJY I don't have your stone!]] And '''[[PrecisionFStrike fuck you anyway!]]'''"
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WB5_88L5EO0 I'm the light-bringer!]] '''I'M THE [[PrecisionFStrike FUCKING]] UNIVERSE!!!'''"

to:

* ''Videogame/AloneInTheDark2008'' ''Franchise/AloneInTheDark'': Quite a bit.
** In the first game, upon walking down to the second floor, the double doors slam, followed by the evil laughter. Said laughter came off... rather {{WesternAnimation/Goofy}} sounding.
** In the second and third game, the [[{{Mook}} Mooks]] will say something upon spotting you. The things they say? "Morning sir!" "Hi guy!" or "Hey you.", all of them sounding hilarious.
** The 2008 reboot
is dripping with it.
** *** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5k8KYp0aaJY I don't have your stone!]] And '''[[PrecisionFStrike fuck '''fuck you anyway!]]'''"

UNIVERSE!!!'''"
** During Edward's narration intro in the first game, he noticeably slurs slightly as he talks, sounding as if he's slightly drunk. Taken even further that in his image to the right, there is a bottle of alcohol on his desk.

** In all the games, while you can (except in ''Gates to Infinity'' pick your character's gender, don't expect to see it come up. Instead of just using the right pronouns depending on what you pick, the other characters will go to ''absurd'' lengths to avoid using a pronoun, usually involving saying your name instead. The result is completely ridiculous, more often than not.

** The lengths to which various characters will go to refer to the player or partner without using pronouns often gets ridiculous.

Added DiffLines:

* Being the [[ObviousBeta black]] [[ChristmasRushed sheep]] of an otherwise venerable WWII-FPS franchise, ''[[{{VideoGame/MedalOfHonor}} Medal of Honor: Rising Sun]]'' has its lion's share of narm.
** An inordinate number of Japanese soldiers' dying sounds like [[SoBadItsGood third-rate]] [[ChewingTheScenery scenery chewing]] or [[OrgasmicCombat something else entirely.]] The fourth mission, [[ThatOneLevel "Midnight Raid]] [[MarathonLevel On Guadalcanal"]], has it the worst, where the ''entire midsection'' has soldiers having only ''two'' dying sounds: a more dignified one and what the [=LPers=] of ''Too Much Free Time Productions'' call [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEenha2GSQM#t=469s "the Japanese orgasm noise."]]
** Mission 8, [[ShoutOut "Bridge On The]] [[{{Film/TheBridgeOnTheRiverKwai}} River Kwai"]] opens with a [[WeaksauceWeakness gust of wind]] pushing our heroes' plane so hard that [[TheHero Joe Griffin]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sap6chLRANs#t=67s suddenly pops out.]] The [[UncannyValley puppy-dog face]] he makes before landing in the rain forest doesn't help.
** No matter the difficulty, there are only two weapons guaranteed to make a OneHitKill no matter what: the [[SniperPistol Welrod]] and ''[[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer your bare hands!]]'' Gets sillier with the bazooka, where it looks like [[PlayerCharacter Joe Griffin]] is nonchalantly jerking its muzzle in the enemy's face.
** Though an EasterEgg, it can get pretty silly when soldiers use sake barrels, cars, mounds of dirt, '''tanks''' and '''FREAKING GIGANTIC BUDDHA STATUES''' as replacements for their helmets/hats.
** The end of mission six, "Singapore Sling", [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqSCuTchZs4 may be the crowning moment of narm.]] Upon your entering the hotel, you're greeted by a host with the [[OffModel worst case of osteoporosis ever,]] [[UnfortunateCharacterDesign who also looks like he]] [[{{Main/Squick}} may have]] [[PottyFailure soiled himself]]. On more worn-out machines or disks, a [[GoodBadBugs glitch]] occurs with [[{{Creator/Mako}} Yamashita's]] slideshow detailing his [[EvilPlan gold racket]], where its pictures are ''always'' flashing by at lightspeed. Even when you retrieve them from the projector, ''[[BeyondTheImpossible the glitchy slideshow continues.]]'' Not helping is [[TheLancer Bromley's]] entrance, where he ''[[{{Main/Telefrag}} spawns]]'' [[SpecialEffectsFailure on top of a]] [[DestinationDefenestration roof-posted soldier]] to help you gun down the place, all while the [[ThoseWackyNazis German emisarries]] have the ''same silly dying sounds'' as the Japanese.

* In the [=PC=] game version of ''[[VideoGame/HarryPotter Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban]]'', the cutscene where Malfoy is attacked by Buckbeak. Buckbeak knocks Malfoy to the ground and he shouts "I'm dying! I'm dying, look at me! It's killed me!" Hagrid matter-of-factly says "yer not dyin'" and then Malfoy gets up and walks off, obviously totally uninjured. He ''is'' supposed to be faking his injury, but that scene makes it look like he's completing dropping the façade at the drop of a hat and that's what makes it perfectly hilarious. (Obviously, the game's makers [[TheyJustDidntCare just didn't feel like]] animating Hagrid carrying Malfoy.)
