Funny: Arkham Horror
- Encounter at the bank: "A little old lady stands in front of you in line counting out a bag of pennies to deposit. Lose 1 Sanity."
- Made even funnier if you think about what it would look like in-universe if you happened to hit 0 from this.
- An encounter at the University can result in you giving a guest lecture about the Mythos... only for everyone to conclude you're off your rocker and ship you to Arkham.
- One of Wendy Adams' abilities, Minor, prevents her from getting a bank loan. However, it does not stop her from becoming the Deputy of Arkham. What makes this even more hilarious is that "Skids" O'Toole has a similar ability, Criminal Record, that does stop him from getting a bank loan or becoming deputy. So we can conclude from this that a homeless little girl is more trustworthy than a former criminal.
- Another way of looking at it is how neither the Former Criminal or the Minor can take out a bank loan, while every other character can. At first, this makes a certain amount of sense — a bank understandably wouldn't trust any money with a former Bank Robber, and a little girl probably wouldn't be able to understand finance all too well. But then Fridge Logic comes in full force when Michael McGlen, the Gangster, and Finn Edwards, The Bootlegger, are BOTH able to take out Loans (with Finn already taking out a Loan to buy supplies as per his backstory). So, the FORMER Criminal can't be trusted with a loan, but the CURRENT Criminals can be trusted just fine!
- Although most of the Investigators have serious backstories and Personal Stories, a few contain some snicker-worthy moments of Black Comedy...
Charlie: "It's a nightmare."Narration: He'd seen it before, faced it, and lived to tell the tale, but he didn't have to like it. The awful slumbering of a dead god is one thing, but THIS? On top of it all?Charlie: "Please, Bonnie, say it ain't so. Didn't we just do this?"Narration: Bonnie left his coffee, and walked off with a shrug.
- Jim Culver, the Musician, whose Golden Trumpet has had weird powers, in spite of playing some pretty funky jazz. Things were going fine for a while, but he's currently been out of work since his last gig had Widow Jenkins jump up and dance at her own funeral...
- Charlie Kane, the Politician, starts at the Miskatonic Univesity's Administration Building on the pretense of calling in a friend, Professor Grant, to help out the investigation. "The fact that he now stands before Professor Grant's mutilated corpse, in Professor Grant's blood-stained office, does not fill Charlie Kane with confidence."
- His Personal Story involves needing to worry about an upcoming election...
- Hank Samson, The Farmhand, whose "Thick-Skulled" ability lets him avoid sanity checks until AFTER he makes his combat roll, since he doesn't think about encountering an Eldritch Abomination unless he isn't able to take it out in that combat roll. This lead to a moment as Awesome as it is funny in his backstory, where, upon encountering a bird-like monster that was attacking his cows, and whose appearance would've driven anybody else insane on the spot, Hank just aims his shotgun, and blows its head clean off.
- His Personal Story involves finding "Pa" Samson, who vanished after he tried to complain about losing his luggage (e.g., the crated remains of the bird-monster Hank had shot). A success involves Hank finding "Pa" Bound and Gagged, and delivers this little line:
