Funny: Animal Crossing
  • Giving Blathers a cockroach in Wild World is funny as all hell, thanks to part of his reaction when he opens the conversation when you hand it over to him.
    • And the fact that if you try to step on the cockroach you gave to the Museum, a VERY sarcastic reminder will appear saying that the cockroach is a "thoughtful donation from the player" and asks the patrons to not step on it. In addition, Blathers will even ask why cockroaches are part of the Museum´s collection.
  • When Zipper T. Bunny in City Folk mutters how much he hates doing this job.
    • The revelation that he's actually Phyllis.
  • Dr. Shrunk the Psychiatrist is trying his hand at stand-up comedy in City Folk. Visiting his show earns you an emote, but the real reward it is speaking to the audience members after the show to hear them complain about how abysmally un-funny Shrunk is.
  • In one commercial for the GameCube version:
    Leslie: Nice outfit. Where'd you get that, a garbage dump?
    Kelli: Uh... yeah.
    • Makes it funnier when you realize that they're wearing the same design, just in different colors.
  • The absolutely brilliant guilty pleasure, in the original GameCube game, of hitting animals with the butterfly net. On the third time, they snap.
    • And now in the online age, hitting EACH OTHER with a butterfly net. Or a shovel. Or an an axe. Sometimes just hitting each other with tools during online sessions can be a blast, especially if you wear certain accessories.
    • And in New Leaf, you can buy a squeaky hammer to bop people with.
    • Even more fun in New Leaf: you can stumble upon your villagers taking a nap on a bench or tree stump. Hitting them with a net while they're asleep is PRICELESS.
  • Show up to work out of uniform at Tom Nook's store in the GameCube game. On occasion he'll go into a lunatic tirade about kids your age, though the look on his face and the accompanying sound and dialogue box that you see when you enter should be enough to make your sides ache.
  • Sometimes Resetti will take control of the camera and force it into extreme close-up, making himself fill the whole screen!
    • And other times, he'll pop up as usual, only to face the wrong direction.
  • In Wild World, if you're railroaded into buying Lyle's insurance, you can avoid it by deliberately not carrying enough money. He is not happy to discover this.
    Lyle: OOOHH, YOU'RE BUSTING MY CHOPS HERE!!!! -it's alright, it's alright...
  • Pitfalls. 'Nuff said.
  • A conversation with a villager, word for word:
    Lazy Villager: Hey Playername, how close do you think our hearts are? *Presents a slider scale. On the right is "Two miles!" on the left is "Two inches"*
    Player: *Sets slider scale to the far right*
    Lazy Villager: You're right Playername, we SHOULD get closer together! *Now wearing a dreamy expression* You smell like milk...
  • Mable's reaction to a male character trying on a dress or skirt that's on display.
    Mable: Well, I guess it's okay to be a little adventurous.
  • The Big "OMG!" your character says after catching a big bug or fish, such as the whale shark, in New Leaf.
    • The fact that your character can hold a shark that's about twenty feet with just ONE hand.
    Player: I caught a shark! GAH! Why am I holding it?!
    • The response to catching a tarantula is pretty funny, mostly because of how blunt it is:
    Player: I caught a tarantula! WHAAAA! Destroy it!
  • If you go to the island with one guy and one girl Kapp'n will assume that the two are married and on their honeymoon.
    • "Are you two eloping?"
  • New Leaf now includes a screen capture function and a website for posting them to Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr directly from the 3DS browser. To say many of the things people have uploaded (particularly on Tumblr) are absolute comedic gold would be a great understatement.
    PLAYER 1: That piranha wants to come out...
    PLAYER 2: Looks like he wants to
    PLAYER 2: Tap that glass.
    PLAYER 1: Bye.
  • In New Leaf, if you're a rotten jerk, Isabelle's reaction if you wish to delete your save file is both adorable and hilarious, especially thanks to her Delayed Reaction.
  • The conversation ending option for Lyle in New Leaf is "You're scaring me."
  • Lyle mentions to The Mayor that he and Tom Nook were invited over to the Able Sisters' for some bread pudding, and Tom immediately gets flustered, starts sweating and adjusting his tie, and responds "Yes, delicious bread pudding!" With the Ship Tease in City Folk that him and Sable may have once been a thing, it really makes you wonder...
  • When Shrunk teaches you the Sneezing joke and he starts sneezing repeatedly, he'll mutter under his breath "Maybe it's my human allergies coming back again."
    • His Disagreement joke. Shrunk starts by pointing out that in some cultures, shaking your head side to side means yes instead of no. After talking a bit about how confident he is in his material, he asks the crowd what they think.
    "Hey, hey, you don't need to agree all at once!"
    • Shrunk's Embarrassment joke in New Leaf is lifted word for word from his mentor Frillard in City Folk. Unfortunately, the joke relied on Frillard's old age to be funny and Shrunk realizes mid-joke that it makes no sense when he tells it. His embarrassment is palpable.
  • The Reset Surveillance Center. Particularly when a reset happens during your visit.
    Resetti: WE GOT A RESET! CODE 64! ... RANGERS, GO!
    *Resetti is deployed*
    Resetti: ARGH! (fading away) SOCK...
    • Even better in New Leaf where they have this voice recognition thing and you say Scramble! into it. Resetti frantically trying to hit the reset button sells it
      Resetti:...There ain't no reset button!
  • If you manage to pay off ALL loans for your house in New Leaf (which may take 7.5 million bells), Tom Nook will celebrate your financial successes by singing an anthem, entirely in gibberish. He claims it's an old Nook ancestor song, so it may have been lost in translation.
    • Fridge Brilliance actually, since the gibberish looks like reading Raccoon chattering, implying his ancestors may have been regular non-talking raccoons at one point.
  • Saharah's silly dialogue gets amped up in New Leaf.
    Saharah: I have many wallpapers for the papering of walls. Many carpets for the petting of cars.
  • Most of the fortunes in New Leaf are hilarious.
  • Play Hide-and-Seek with your villagers. If you see one of your villagers hiding behind a tree, chop down the tree they are hiding with an axe. Their reactions are priceless.
  • A potential conversation between a Lazy villager and a Smug villager involves the Smug villager boasting in posh-sounding terms about eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
  • In the GameCube versions, Resetti will eventually pull a prank where he pretends to reset all your data, and then after the prank is done the game goes back to normal, and then Resetti goes on to mention how he probably made the player throw their controller or kick their TV.
  • Lazy villagers tend to be either cute or funny.
    • Lazy villagers can mention while a player is visiting their house in New Leaf how they ate all of a specific food they were going to give to the player, after apologizing how they had none.
    • Also in New Leaf, when they talk about ordinances, they think an ordinance of a limit of snacks you could buy is horrible.
  • Uichi villagers will sometimes salute potatoes.
  • Kapp'n singing in New Leaf can be either a Big Lipped Alligator Moment, Heartwarming, or this.
    • Sometimes he talks about how he "toots more than just his horn".
    • Or how when he first took his wife out, he forgot shoes.
    • To females, when he drops you off at home: "Am I getting a touch o' the sea madness, or did you become even cuter on the way over? *pause* ...Nah, must be the sea madness."
    • Apparently, he once tried out for a sports team and was so focused on doing his best during tryouts, he only realized by the time he'd made the team...that it was a girls' team! Whoops.
  • Thanksgiving in pre-New Leaf games, thanks to Franklin averting Furry Confusion. There's something hilarious yet sad about the panicky little guy and the whole situation.
  • Pascal the otter's "deep truths", like this one from New Leaf:
    Pascal: The best things in life are free, but if you try to sell them, you always seem to make a killing, maaan...
  • In the first games the coelacanth is referred to by the player as a "living fossil". In New Leaf the player says its proper name, then they will ask if they are saying the name right.
  • The letter that came with the "Pile of Leaves" Downloadable Content in New Leaf:
    Dear Playername,
    When's the last time you went for a jump in a pile of freshly baked leaves? Then jump away - our treat!
    Note: Not responsible for leaf-jumping injuries.
    From the leafy bunch
  • Gulliver says some amusing things while you're trying to wake him up.
    ...but Lizzy! You were my lobster...
    Cinnamon buns are not currency...Not yet, anyway...
    Oh, no! That's the port side! Starboard is on the right... It's because all starfish are right-handed...
    *with his eyes open* Zzz... I can't believe how seriously unconscious I am right now.
    (On being woken up by a female) Oh...Are you my princess? Kiss me and wake me from my endless slumber!
  • Leif refers to products in his store as "a happy X". Even if it's an axe.
  • A lot of descriptions of the creatures in the sea life exhibit mention things like how to cook them and what they taste like, even things that most Westerners wouldn't touch. Thanks Japan.
  • Some conversations with villagers at the Roost are hilarious. One conversation with an Uchi villager goes like this.
    Uchi: Hey, Brewster, what's the name of that (seasonal) blend you were working on?
    Brewster: (Season) Storm.
    Uchi: Brewster, are you OK? Is it safe to drink? OhmygoshIwantsomerightnow!
  • The Peppy villagers will sometimes talk about their horribly failed attempts at makeup. They include looking like a clown, and drawing on their own eyelids.
  • In New Leaf, if the player talks to Isabelle from behind her desk, she says this gem.
    Isabelle: Umm... Hi. Did you need something? I know it's silly, but if you want to talk about (town name), you'll need to talk to me over the counter. Or if you want to flex your mayoral muscle, you can sit in the mayor's chair.
  • If the player tries to wake up Cyrus...
    Reese: SSSTOPPPPPPP!
  • New Leaf replaces Sable's Plot Parallel with an unlockable sewing machine. Nonetheless, there's some pretty funny dialouge.
    Sable: So Playername, what kind of clothes do you really like?
    Mabel: Hmm... It has to be... green-and-white, gingham plaid of course.explanation 
    Sable: Ugh! Not every one wants the Mabel special, no matter how much you keep trying!
  • During the second week after starting the game in New Leaf, the player can find Isabelle sleeping at her desk. Of course, she gives a lame exuse if the player wakes her up. She's so hard on herself!
    Isabelle: Zzzzzz... AHHHH! Mayor Playername! It's Not What It Looks Like! OK, it's exactly what it looks like... But I was dreaming about work! I promise!
  • Isabelle has a Twitter account. And it's not a fake account either (well, you can say its a parody of one, but still)!
  • If the player fills the flower bed in the gardening tour, Tortimer will call the player "Speedy McGreen Thumb".
  • On April Fool's Day in New Leaf, the faceless cat Blanca impersonates your villagers and forces you to identify the real one. With uchi villagers, this leads to lengthy back-and-forth arguments about which one is a wafflehanger. They can't say "doppelganger".
  • In New Leaf, sometimes when you find someone while playing hide and seek, they'll say this gem:
    Villager: Aw pancakes! You found me!
  • The back-and-forth between Blanca and snooty villagers in New Leaf's April Fool's Day event:
    Snooty 1: <Catchphrase>, what's going on? Why are there...two of me? Who is this imposter?
    Snooty 2: Imposter? How dare you. I'm the one and only <Name>.
    Snooty 1: Wait. What am...I..doing here? I mean, I'm me, but who is THAT? I'm kind of flattered in a weird way, but on the other hand, this really dilutes my brand. What is going on?
    Snooty 2: Dilutes YOUR brand? Well, I'm the CEO, president, dictator, and logo of the <Name> brand. In other words, I'm the real <Name>!
    (after the player successfully identifies Blanca)
    Real villager: How dare you dress up like me without express written consent!
  • Fortune #28
    Cannons are much like toasters, though bread is bad for cannons.
  • The cat meows in the song in the GameCube game that plays outdoors at 1 PM during sunny weather is quite amusing, especially if a nearby pet reacts to it when the game is being played.
  • When returning a cranky villager's package to a snooty villager in New Leaf: "<Name> returned it AND wrapped it? That's surprising. He's usually such a bull in a china shop. Nothing against bulls, of course. They're just usually so furious when wrapping presents."
