Funny: Bastion
  • Any time the narrator snarks.
    "And then the Kid fell to his death."
    (Kid immediately falls back onto the play area)
    "Naw, I'm just foolin'."
    • If you click on the bull statue 4 times to turn it in a full circle:
    "Turn him round and round all you like; Pyth is still gonna be ugly."
    • "Kid just rages for a while..."
      • Basically any time he hangs a lampshade on most players' tendency to break EVERYTHING.
    • "Know how many times The Kid nearly fell off that barge?... not even once."
    • "He cuts down every Stabweed like there's going to be a prize for it."
    • Upon equipping both the Mortar and the Calamity Cannon:
    "Now that's just overkill. I mean really — come on."
    • If you upgrade the Calamity Cannon:
    "Take my word for it: don't ever drop one of those things."
    • Upon falling off of the Bastion:
    "I've been meaning to put some guard rails there."
    • There are some unused audio files in the game that are actually pretty funny. Link
    This microphone smells funny.
    You find that old boat? Plant it.
    You find a rusty, old pocket watch? Plant it.
    Find a copy of Terminator2 on laserdisk? Plant it.
    You find a pair of socks? Plant it.
    You find a Milli Vanilli casette tape? Plant it.
    • Upon equipping the Fire Bellows and the War Machete:
    "We could have ourselves a mighty fine cookout with those items. Too bad that's not what we're doing."
    • Or the Pike and Bellows:
    "Cook em and Stick em... or the other way around. Makes no difference."
    • Hammer repeatedly and desperately on the door to the outhouse:
    "Zia's cooking must have gotten to him."
  • Anytime that a particularly hard boss is defeated by... falling off the playfield. This tends to happen a lot with Scumbags and Lunkheads.
    • Become a hair-pulling situation as the final enemy of Shield Test forces you to do this.
    • Killing a boss with the explosion-on-death effect from Hearty Punch is pretty funny, too, especially if you weren't expecting it/forgot you had it on. Queen Anne the Anklegator is particularly vulnerable to this.
  • The Kid lands at any given area... flat on his face.
    • If are about to leave the Bastion and opt to return to the Bastion instead of going anywhere, the Kid has already taken a leap up to the sky... so he just falls down and lands flat on his face.
    • Especially at the begining of the Sundown Path. The camera focuses on a bale of hay for a good few seconds then zooms out and the kid faceplants into the level a little to the left.
      • In contrast to the various, far from ideal, objects he DOES crash into like weapon turrets and crates.
  • Showing the gel canister (a special item on the Steam version that summons a mini-turret from Portal) to Zulf gets you this reaction.
    " 'You show me whoever made this,' Zulf says, 'and I'll show you a scientific genius.'"
  • Ruck's announcer cameo in Dota2 has plenty of these.
    "Ready for some more of this 'Doter' thing?"
  • The Kid finds the Distillery right next to the Armory. Tough part of town.
    • A bit dulled by the fact that Caelondia only permits productive drinks.
