** In a more minor example, when Sara is turned into a CatGirl, she says having claws is inconvenient and asks if Tedd can't alter the transformation to make them retractable. Tedd says he could, but it would make her hands into paws, and she'd lose most of the versatility of her fingers. Claws and human hands just don't mix very well.

* One strip of ''[[http://extrafabulouscomics.com/ Extra Fabulous Comics]]'' plays this for BlackComedy, when a firefighter tries to [[http://extrafabulouscomics.com/comic/167/ fight fire with fire]]. [[TooDumbToLive It doesn't work.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Another PlayedForLaughs moment is during the YetAnotherChristmasCarol arc, Kirby shows Scrooge!Mario the present. Mario comments on how ugly the people around them are, at which point Kirby reminds him that they're walking around in the present, not ghosting around, which means people can still hear him.
** The previous page of that arc is less funny. Bowser's plan to take over the Mushroom Kingdom was to stay in hiding for years, until Junior was large and tough enough to essentially pretend to be him. After they took over, Mario and Luigi tried to stop them as usual, only to find that age had caught up with them. Being so old and out of practice, they didn't even get past World 1-3. And so the Koopa Kingdom took over.

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' starts off with the usual WeirdnessCensor that is prevalent in works where TheMasquerade is in place. Unfortunately, as the comic progresses, it becomes obvious that, despite what the protagonists thought, random civilians who've witnessed supernatural occurrences don't suddenly forget they happened, they just try not to acknowledge that they did. From every time a MonsterOfTheWeek appears, to when the protagonists casually show off their superpowers, TheMasquerade has been breaking down, and the existence of magic is no longer a secret. Which leads to another RealityEnsues moment-- in TheUnmasquedWorld, where anyone can learn to use magic, what stops an amoral sociopath from getting superpowers? And because PersonalityPowers is in effect, what kind of powers do you think that sociopath will get?

* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2013/03/19/473-gourmet-rematch/ Played for laughs]] in ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'' when Kirby and King Dedede attempt to reenact the [[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Gourmet Race]]. Both of them are utterly sick at the end due to the combo of cramming as much food as they can down their mouths while running at top speed. And, as Kirby notes, some of those food combinations do not go well with each other.

** Jonesy asks the Commander if he intends to fight [[TheBerserker Tank]] after he flips, but the Commander points out that even for him, getting into a fistfight with eighthundred pounds of juiced-up SuperSoldier with an "alpha male"-complex and a grudge is an idiot thing to do, and spends most of his time trying to stay just inside speech-range and talk Tank down.

*** During their altercation, Commander Badass gets away from Tank by walking into the sea, well aware that Tank can't swim because large parts of his body have been replaced with metal, and he just sinks when he tries.

*** And even despite Nale's status as the Order's enemy, Elan does ''not'' react well to seeing his father kill his twin in front of him, nor does he accept any of Tarquin's attempts to justify it- and Tarquin constantly talking about how they're in a story and how things have to go to make the story better doesn't endear him to Elan either, since he keeps talking about Nale like he was just a plot device and not a person. Elan ends up refusing to go along with Tarquin's plans, instead letting him fall off the airship as he knows the fall won't kill him.

** Commander Badass, when [[spoiler:falsely]] told by his superior all of his siblings are dead, he breaks down crying and asks for a therapist. When his superior tells him off for not bottling up his emotions and becoming a dark and brooding avenger, the offended Commander demands to see a lawyer.
** Commander Badass thinks a fight to the death with Gackt will [[NoOntologicalInertia cure his Nomura Syndrome]]. It doesn't.
** In a sense, the entire comic is about what happens when RealityEnsues to Manly Men with TestosteronePoisoning who are perfectly geared to survive environments where EverythingIsTryingToKillYou, but don't have the emotional tools to handle the ups and downs of mundane life.

doesn't. Canadian Guy more sensibly goes to the doctor for treatment.
** In a sense, the entire comic is about what happens when RealityEnsues to Manly Men with TestosteronePoisoning who are perfectly geared to survive environments where EverythingIsTryingToKillYou, but don't have the emotional tools to handle the ups and downs of mundane life. The comic takes place at a ''temp agency'' because many of them can't find work due to their backgrounds.



** Ex-military robot Bubbles has implied combat-related PTSD as well as severe misanthropy and depression due to the way veterans are regarded by society, combined with real-world concerns about how advancing technology is making warfare more impersonal and accessible (it's debatable whether robots in QC are considered people or machines). For comparison, the depressive, abrasive, maybe-recovering-alcoholic Faye is treated as an uplifting and outgoing social influence to Bubbles.
** Hannelore changing medications for her neuroses and consequently suffering weird side-effects has been played for laughs a few times.



** Since her parents refuse to pay her tuition, Aylia's only way to successfully enrol at the magical school is to get a scholarship as a teaching assistant. At the auditions, she goes in believing that her magical abilities and her unique and diverse life experience will surely get her a position... only to see the positions go to people who were more experienced as [=TAs=], or who knew the teachers, or who had more knowledge of the fields in question, leaving her stuck between a rock and a hard place until a rather whimsical teacher decides to take her on.
