* The [[http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/Consolidated_Development Consolidated Development]] page is rather ripe with these:
** "[=Core59=], LOVE AND ROMANCE, (Future): Though some of the dialog is likely to be an entertaining trainwreck, especially if coupled with a random poem generator (yes, that's a threat)"
** "[=PowerGoal=] 90, BY THE POWER OF MOTHRA, (Future): You say a prayer to [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Mothra]] in the face of your enemies and are filled with great strength. You [[BeatStillMyHeart rip the heart from the chest of your adversary]] and eat it in front of his quailing comrades."
* [[http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=80043.0 This thread]] chronicles the adventures of [=SpiralDimentia=] and forum members managing to trick him into removing the [[UnusualEuphemism cotton candy]] sword from a curious structure and experiencing [[HilarityEnsues spoilers]]. To his credit he took it with a great sense of humor and it turned into an epic thread of awesomeness.
--> '''[=SpiralDimentia=]:''' Oh god, you guys are dicks, I think I just unleashed [[spoiler:[[TheLegionsOfHell a horde of demons]]]] into my base.
--> '''[=SpiralDimentia=]:''' Okay, so the migrants have managed to [[GodzillaThreshold release the bronze colossus]]...
** To everyone's surprise and delight, SD quickly gets over his shock and turns the thread and his fort's horrible demise into a CrowningMomentOfAwesome involving [[NoodleImplements well-timed migrants]], [[GodzillaThreshold an imprisoned bronze colossus]], [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption at least two reclaim attempts]], and fanfiction.
* At one point during the thoroughly insane succession fortress BattleFailed, a [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever forest titan]] wandered onto the map. The militia prepared to defend the fortress from the monstrosity... and then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBFYTc0d0jY this happened]].
* Several of the wiki articles qualify, especially the ones "[[http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/Category:D_for_Dwarf Rated D for Dwarf]]." See [[http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2012:Batman Batman]], [[http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2012:Unfortunate_accident Unfortunate accident]], [[http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2012:Goblin_christmas Goblin Christmas]], and [[http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/Scamps Scamps]] for candidates.
** Also, the redirect [[http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/Useless_crap "Useless crap"]].
* Engravers, who tend to {{troll}} other dwarves (mostly the ones in a position of power) by covering every fifth tile they engrave with an image of the current position of power, surrounded by their most hated vermin (worms, bats, toads, insects, etc) and ''cowering''. Not only are they engraving the fort with political satire, but the mental image is hilarious.
** Quite a bit of the engraved material is worthy of a good chuckle.
* As polished as the game is, sometimes the grammar is a bit off. Case in point? "His guts is broken."
** You can also get a report that, "His guts is fractured."
** And with cave-ins, "It [double space] the (dwarf) in the body part".
** And the hilarious "Floating Guts guts".
* [[http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=99365.0 This]] thread about a Bronze Colossus that was chasing after a kitten:
-->"The Bronze Colossus punches The Stray Kitten in the head with its right hand, [[EpicFail but the attack glances away!]]"\\
'''Poster''': It tried punching it in the head at least 12 or 13 times, but every time the attack glanced off. What the hell was that cat's head made out of, slade?
* [[http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=101243.0 This thread]] has perhaps the most hilariously unexpected KillerRabbit of all time: The giant sponge.

* Due to copious amounts of {{Noodle Incident}}s and unfortunate selection of topics and titles, the procedurally generated books can be quite funny. Some examples include vitriolic rants against a random town the necro never visited, and books about books about books about themselves, give or take a few layers.
* [[http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=63417.0 A Note to Urist]] - wherein fortress Overseers express their frustration with their epically stupid dwarves.
* On the Adventure Mode page on the wiki, one of the [=FAQ's=] is, "I managed to escape but all my limbs are gone. Now what?" It then goes on to talk about what you can do, depending on what limbs you are missing. If you have all your arms and legs gone, it talks about how you could ''wrestle people to the ground and kill them using only your teeth''.

* DF Talk #19: Rainseeker, Capntastic and Toady One discuss ways [[AntiGrinding to discourage nonsensical training methods]] like having the credit your adventurer gets for slaying a troll diminish as villagers come to see him as the dumbass who throws rocks and wrestlers badgers all day.
* When [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9ZwVuGB_PI being interviewed by Penn State's Society of Physics Students]], one of them asks a question about future development with the density of magma, as at current LavaIsBoilingKoolAid.
-->'''Student''': Well realistically if you drop a cow down a volcano it should just sit on top of the lava and burn to death instead of falling down into the magma sea and [[TheAllSeeingAI revealing all minerals on the map.]]
* The [[QuicksandBox titanic complexity]] of Adventurer Mode allows for a large number of [[HilariousInHindsight unintentionally amusing]] [[ShoutOut Shout Outs.]] For example, in a single playthrough you can quite happily [[TheBeatles go around murdering people with a silver hammer]], [[NorseMythology kill a giant with an antler,]] [[EvilDead fight off your own severed hand,]] [[MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian raise cash by selling otter's noses, jaguar's ears and badger's spleens,]] [[MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail bite someone's legs off after losing all four of your own limbs,]] [[Franchise/TheHitchHikersGuideToTheGalaxy and find the exact value of a pair of dingo's kidneys.]]
* Greatly entertaining is the ability for legendary warrior dwarves to dismember enemies so explosively that the combat logs read "...and the severed part goes flying off in an arc!"

** Note that there are no "missing" letters. The letters used are the ones represented in [[FridgeBrilliance the dwarven alphabet]].
*** Add in the extra letter in the form of Th. The author decided that dwarves probably would have an unique letter for that sound.

* Vampire dwarfs [[IDoNotDrinkWine do not drink wine]]... but they ''still get alcohol withdrawal''.
* Among the many unhappy thoughts that can be triggered by way of ghost attack...
-->''He has been attacked by a dead and still annoying acquaintance lately''
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', a fantastic freeware civilization/roguelike game that advertises losing as being fun, has much of this at random. Particularly, you can allow a dwarf to tantrum and assault something or someone, causing another dwarf to tantrum and do the exact same thing to other dwarves, thereby setting up a DisasterDominoes that eventually kills everybody and completely ruins your entire fortress--even if the cause was simply a dwarf not being able to eat at a table. Or, you can set a dwarf on fire and he will simply not notice enough to allow himself to grab a drink from the local stores of alcohol... which bursts into flames and causes everything in the vicinity to catch fire, including other dwarves, who ''still'' won't notice and will wander about the fortress causing every non-fire-safe material they touch to catch fire, eventually causing your entire fortress to burn down to the ground.
** This game has a lot of VideoGameCrueltyPotential. If you are able to harness a source of unlimited running liquid (be it water or magma), you can redirect them to create deathtraps that involves locking in the victims and slowly filling up the death chamber with liquid, the end result being that they either drown to death or they melt horribly in molten rock.
** The best way to handle those annoying nobles? Set up suicide booths just for them -- a standard suicide booth involves a switch and a trap that will result in a guaranteed death for anyone unfortunate enough to be in the same room as the switch.
*** Fun traps include: floors that give out when the victims are standing on them, causing them to drop to their deaths; drawbridges that squash them flat when they are in range; deliberate cave-ins intended to crush the one who triggered it; locked chambers of ballista doom...
*** See the hilariously-titled wiki page [[http://dwarf.lendemaindeveille.com/index.php/Unfortunate_accident Unfortunate Accident.]]
** [[EverythingTryingToKillYou And, of course, there's the dwarf-eating carp. And the elephants. And the unicorn.]]
*** "I think I made the fish too hardcore."
** See [[http://lparchive.org/LetsPlay/Boatmurdered/ Boatmurdered]] for the right way to use magma, and the wrong way to do most of everything else.
** There are also a few hilarious DF videos, such as [[http://mkv25.net/dfma/movie-567-goblindumper this one]].

* [[http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=140712.0 A user]] had issues with dwarves climbing trees and getting injured when they inevitably fell out. Another user suggested building a meeting area so that the dwarves would stop wandering off.
