** ''Anytime'' Vakama Wangst will become this eventually for any viewer. At first it's understandable as he is suddenly thrusted into becoming a hero and doubts himself but by the end of the movie, he sounds more like [[NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji]] than a Heroic Toa of Fire.His awkward voice doesn't help much. Some choice quotes

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' has a moment at the end of one episode where a robot double of Batman kills himself after thinking he killed the real Batman. As if his anguished cries ("I'VE TAKEN A LIFE! MY CITY! MY PEOPLE! [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone WHAT HAVE I DONE?!]]") weren't bad enough, the real Batman later muses, completely seriously, "What if he had a soul... a soul of silicon, maybe, but a soul no less."
** In the episode "Blind as a Bat", Bruce gets temporarily blinded by an explosion. Pretty harsh; unfortunately, this is revealed in one of the most silly, needlessly dramatic way possible - Alfred asks why doesn't his master want to go to a regular hospital, which our hero answers with "Because... I don't want anyone to find out... that I can't... SEE!!". The random use of dramatic silence by itself was quite funny, but the scene also goes alongside some pretty tragic BGM, and the animation team [[http://imgur.com/GNjX1sv didn't help it]].
*** In the same episode, the Penguin hijacks a helicopter by having his {{Mooks}} replace the crew. Two men find the real pilots BoundAndGagged behind some oil drums, and feel the need to [[ShowDontTell spell it out to the audience]].
---> '''Man #1''': Looks like the helicopter crew!
---> '''Man #2''': But if you guys are here, who's flying the chopper?!
** Any time Poison Ivy starts making hammy eco-terrorist speeches. Yes, the woman's insane, but come on now! Bruce Timm and company seem to have realized the narminess too; in "The New Batman Adventures" and comics set in its continuity, the speeches have all but vanished. The problem honestly lay in the delivery--Creator/DianePershing's insane anger sounded very forced. Ivy's insane ranting worked much better when the character was eerily calm.
** In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm'', there's a flashback to Bruce proposing to a girlfriend. She happily agrees to marry him, even though her father was planning to move them to Europe. But a few days later, Bruce gets the ring back in the mail, along with a note reading "Left with Dad. Too young. Need time. Forget about me." This could have been a sad scene, except he reads it aloud in a confused monotone.
** The Mad Hatter's StalkerWithACrush behaviour toward Alice should have been creepy, but was somewhat undercut by the fact that she was TooDumbToLive even before he resorted to mind controlling her. He takes her out on a date after she and her boyfriend break up (temporarily), and she somehow fails to notice the highly conspicuous mind-control devices that he puts on pretty much everyone they encounter.
** "Avatar," wherein Ra's Al-Ghul resurrects an ancient Egyptian queen who quickly goes OneWingedAngel on the hapless supervillain, thus prompting Batman and Talia to rescue him, is genuinely creepy until it's time for Batman to slay the hideous queen-mummy. He urges the others to run, shouting that "I'll do what I can to stop that... ''thing''!" It's supposed to be a tense moment, but the way he says "thing" makes you immediately picture the letters of the word festering and oozing slime down their sides, like some really bad horror movie poster.
** The scene where a very pissed off Robin (Dick Grayson) punches out Batman, is pretty dramatic... until it cuts to Batgirl gasping.
** In "Heart of Steel" Part 2, Commish Gordon got replaced by [[RobotMe a robot duplicate]] and his daughter Barbara started suspecting he's an impostor. The scene in which she tells Batman about it was this:
---> '''Barbara''': That man is not my father.
---> '''Batman''': (wide-eyed) What do you mean he's not your father?
---> (...)
---> '''Barbara''': He doesn't have bolts in his neck or anything that obvious. (note the unintentional pun on her part) He's so... cold to me... (as she says the word 'cold', she hunchbacks and rubs her arms like it's really cold)
*** It gets even more narmy when you consider that she might actually be meaning that in a literal sense, as in an earlier scene, we saw her touch his hand and comment on how cold it was (he's made of steel, after all). Otherwise, it was another (unintentional?) pun.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', the episode with the Royal Flush gang. The TV producer wouldn't cancel the show until Batman says it belongs to ComicBook/TheJoker. The TV producer face's turning to pure shock ''before'' Batman finishes his sentence.

*** Peter Parker's design on the show. Most character designs work well... except for Peter's. He's supposed to be in high school, but he looks about twelve years old.

** The entire scene at ''The Prancing Pony''. Between the {{rotoscoping}}, the LargeHam innkeeper and all the hammy extras playing the clients gleefully ChewingTheScenery, get ready for a few minutes of awkward unintentional humour.
** The scene in which Bilbo is tempted to take back the ring at Rivendell. His awkward movements make it look like he's having a seizure.

** The Greek dub of ''Disney/AGoofyMovie'' manages to make it ''very'' hard to take some of the emotional scenes seriously by giving Goofy a voice that, even from Greek Goofy standards, sounds very weird and clown-like.

* The Shredder's trial scene in the third season finale of the second ''WesternAnimation/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|2003}}'' has two rather Narmy things going for it: First, when the Utroms declare that they find C'hrell guilty as charged, C'hrell gasps as if he is really surprised that they didn't clear him of his charges, despite the fact that the Utroms just finished providing foolproof evidence of C'hrell committing numerous crimes. Second, when the Utrom guards are escorting the handcuffed Karai and Dr. Chaplin away, Karai yells: ''"This is not what I wanted, Leonardo! This is NOT what I wanted!"''. No shit, Karai?

** In the same episode (again, in markets other than America), Stella has a bug up her butt for some reason (she's under a curse in America). She starts lashing out at her roommates whenever they say, well, pretty much anything, but seems to have NO IDEA that what she's saying might be offensive to other people! You'd think she would figure it out after Musa storms out on her, but she has the same shocked "What?" moment EVERY SINGLE TIME!

* Good God, ''WesternAnimation/FoodFight'' has so many moments that it's hard to count all of them. One of them is the scene where Mr. Clipboard (voiced by Creator/ChristopherLloyd, who [[HamAndCheese clearly knew the movie was terrible]] and turned in the single most memorable performance in the entire film) stomps on a bag of potato chips and Leonard mourns over them as if a soldier has been gunned down. The dramatic music playing doesn't help.
