Funny / Cardfight!! Vanguard

  • Morikawa is a walking Crowning Momentof Funny. From his over-the-top outbursts about how destiny screwed him over, to his treatment of his horoscope as his bible, and the memorable Episode 15 where he loses to Emi. But the one massive source of comedy from Morikawa is probably anytime he gets called...
    Miwa/Kamui: Make-mi ("Lose-umi")!
    • Also, any time at all he sees Kourin is loaded with these.
      • Anytime he sees a ninja is loaded with these too.
  • The MC getting told to get off the stage.
    MC: And now the master of ceremonies you all know and love... me, MC Miya!
    Morikawa: I don't know you! Get off the stage you two-bit MC!
    • Miwa even joins in and mocks the MC for the way he holds the mike.
    Miwa: Get that little finger down!
  • Almost every line by Screamin' and Dancin' Announcer, Shout, especially in the English Dub version.
    Shout: 9 out of 10 doctors recommend drive triggers!
  • In episode 41, Miwa gets so annoyed at Morikawa that he asks Izaki if he can hit Morikawa. Too bad he didn't follow through on it...
  • In episode 51, the shop cat continually steps over the computer's keyboard and ruins something whenever the Manager looks away. So in episode 52, every time the cat comes anywhere near the computer, the Manager yanks the keyboard away. And the cat looks at him with annoyance!
  • In episode 52, Morikawa VS Kishida aka "Kougekiiiiiiiiii!!!", with them shuffling their decks in a dramatic fashion.
    Morikawa: No.1, ultra, special, deluxe, wonderful, beautiful, grateful, delicious, strongest of all!
    Kishida: Very eccentric, best, strong, ultimate, congratulation, natural, fantastic, strongest...of them all!
  • "Girl power is scary!"
  • Episode 57, Ren tripping over his own feet. Where else do you find a Big Bad who falls over as The Rival comes to challenge him?
  • Asaka's first meeting with Ren.
  • Episode 69 has...
    Rekka: Kyun! Kyun!
  • The shop cat's exasperated expression near the end of episode 70.
  • Episode 73. All of it. Especially Misaki's fight.
  • Episode 74. Whenever Kamui says "Emi", Reiji and Eiji will block the TV, resulting in more hilarious yelling by Morikawa.
    • At one point, the cat switched the television off just right before that, and Miwa praised it.
  • Episode 77, full stop. The entire episode is so ridiculously over-the-top that it rapidly reaches Narm levels and just keeps going...
  • Episode 78. "Card Shop Morikawa".
    • Also, Kamui's mental image of Tetsu.
  • Episode 79. Oh God, Kamui, where did you learn the term "Booby Stars"?
  • Episode 80. Every single line by Ren until he regained PSYQualia.
  • Episode 82. Ren sticking out his tongue at Koutei after losing to him.
    • Kenji is finally happy that he won against Ren. Cue to the MC saying "HOWEVER..." which leads to Yuri and Gai apologizing to him. The look on Kenji's face is priceless. And that happened right after that Testosterone Poisoning, Hot-Blooded scene of Great Daiyusha.
    • Miwa's explanation on the All Stand 3 Rear Guard rule is hilarious. Morikawa is retired in favour of the Shop Manager, WITH WINGS!!!
  • Episode 83. DAIGO and his not so Gratuitous EIGOU. As expected from a graduate from Harvarda -WISH!
  • Episode 84. Now where to start...
    • Let's start with Ren using FOODQualia in cooking
    • Kai vs. Lobster. Winner: Lobster.
    • The entire scene of the courage test, especially Misaki's and Asaka's.
    • When Kamui finds out that Ren's the one who cooked the food. Ren's response in the English version is just downright hilarious and wrong at the same time.
      Ren: *Blows a kiss* Eat up, big boy!
  • Episode 85. Kamui's DRAMATIC training.
    • Kai's appropriate timing of FINAL TURN left and right is also quite funny.
    • Izaki couldn't get any fish. It's funny not because a fish leapt up right after he said that, because if you remember Morikawa had been wrestling with a variety of fishes in the background earlier on, and he caught them barehanded.
  • Episode 89. Team Q4 and Team Battle Weeds. As the four players flip over their starting Vanguard, we're treated with an upbeat battle BGM, until...
    Misaki: Little Witch, Lulu!
    Kamui: Battleraizer!
    Team Battle Weeds: Dramatic Pause
  • Episode 91. Sharlene breaks into Jilian's monologue, which resulted in a Boke Tsukkomi routine of the two.
  • Episode 93. The return of "Kyun kyun RAIDO!!"
  • Episode 94. Leon and Kyou just completely ignoring the antics of their minions to go off and have a cardfight on their own.
  • Episode 95. Kamui was waiting for his opponent, who was running late, cue to the sound of a carriage, and Nagisa steps out from the carriage and PROPOSE to him, in front of the audiences!!! Kamui's reaction was like...WTF!?
    • The preview of Episode 96 has Kamui wearing a white tuxedo.
  • Episode 96. If the end of Episode 95 fails to make you laugh, Episode 96 brought it up to eleven with Team Handsome's randomness flying around following Nagisa's "proposal" and Kamui's reaction.
    Kamui: The Great, SINGLE me draws/rides/calls...
  • Joker X, I wonder who his identity is...
    • Morikawa's guess is Mr. Mark Whiting.
  • Episode 99. In the midst of a Wham Episode, we have this exchange.
    Kai: Ren, we're counting on your nose. Let's hurry up.
    Ren: Sure...... But I will tell you that I'm no dog!
    Asaka: Nyaa!
    Kai: Whatever, just get moving.
  • Episode 105. Naoki's Imagine Spot about who Aichi is when tailing him, which includes "Captain Tsubasa" and Aichi being a delinquent.
    Naoki: Stand Up...My(Boku}...
    Aichi: "My(Boku)..."?
    Naoki: M-My mistake! One more time! Strike, my(Ore) avatar!
    • Actually, if you look a little earlier, you realize he was mimicking Aichi, further increasing the funniness of this CMOF.
  • Episode 106. Morikawa's reaction when he founds out that Kourin is attending Aichi's school, and even worse, shares the same class. This starts off a chain reaction of funny moments.
    • Morikawa's solution #2 - Transfer into Aichi's school.
    • Morikawa's solution #3 - Live in Aichi's school but, this is quickly shot down as only students and their guardians are allowed into the school grounds.
    • Morikawa's solution #4 - Be Aichi's father. The look on Misaki's face is PRICELESS.
    • Naoki asking if he can re-ride Discharging Dragon, just so he can make it more Hot-Blooded.
    • Naoki's victory dance after he won against Kourin, and there are audiences around.
  • Episode 107.
    • Shingo saying that he wasn't there for Kourin but for Aichi.
  • Episode 108.
    • The whole thing with the Football team.
  • Episode 110 - 112.
    • Morikawa's envy towards Izaki having to battle Kourin during Miyaji vs Hitsue school battle. After it's over, Miwa tells Izaki to run as Morikawa chases after him because of it.
    • Shingo being way overconfident while fighting Miwa, just because he hasn't see him in any Vanguard magazines. Not a good idea...
  • Episode 114.
    • Naoki's ways of asking Mai to teach him how to battle after he loses to an intimidating way. Until Misaki and Aichi comes in. Hilarity ensure.
      • This becomes especially funny in the dub when you consider both Mai and Misaki have the same voice actress.
    • Shingo's match against Emi. Once again Shingo's overconfidence habit rears it head again, while at the same time he's in the dark about Aichi and Emi being siblings. He not only LOSES to her, his 'so-called' plan fails.
  • Episode 116
    • Naoki telling Suiko that she doesn't belong in a sailor uniform. The reactions of the rest of the Vanguard club says it all.
    • In the dub: Naoki: "Hey... Aren't you a little OLD to be in a school uniform?"
      • Then comes Suiko's response in saying she wants to make Naoki her pet in a creepy manner. Cue Oh, Crap! faces from the others.
  • Episode 133. Tetsu's flashback of Ren trying to get him into Cardfight!! Vanguard. This includes: Swapping his lunch for a deck, putting a deck in his shoe locker, getting his goons into Vanguard, and stalk him when he's in the toilet.
  • Episode 139. When Misaki is told about the romantic legend of the tree by the lake, in the English dub, she compares what she heard to "being in prison".
  • Episode 144. Kamui's Imagine Spot of him chasing over Emi and Mai makes the audiences Face Palm on the spot. Then he tries to do the same with Reiji and Eiji but snaps out of it because just how wrong it would be.
  • Episode 149. The Student Council President and Vice President of Miyaji Academy tries to sneak up on Naoki, Solid Snake style. IT DOESN'T WORK.
  • Episode 159, English version. In the Japanese version, when Kai is bragging about how powerful his new Overlord is, Ren sounds somewhat impressed and scared. In the dub? Ren replies "Oh my, I'm all tingly." in a completely uncaring tone of voice. You can't watch it and not burst out laughing at the sheer audacity of Ren being flippant to Kai in that situation.
  • Vanguard G Episode 1 where during Chrono's first attack, his Vanguard only shoots out a small ball, which only whacks Kamui's Vanguard rather than damaging it.
  • Vanguard G Episode 2, everything regarding Team Trinity Dragon, which fans say is an expy of Team Rocket and the Ginyu Force.
  • The end of the first season of Vanguard G, The reveal that Ibuki was the one who gave Chrono the Gear Chronicle deck and the cards at the end, by them accidentally catching him putting them into Chrono's Shoebox. And Ibuki being stoic as usual about it.
    Ibuki: Caught in the act.
    Chrono: So it was you!?
  • Episode 13 of GIRS is pretty much both Chrono AND Ibuki throwing rants at each other, including Chrono calling Ibuki a stalker and an old man.
    Ibuki: I'm only 20!
    • In the dub, Chrono calls Ibuki an "old fart." Fans have said this is even funnier.
  • Episode 14 of GIRS Crisis features the return of Morikawa, and leave it to him to introduce the G-Assist mechanic to the show. Even funnier is how serious Chrono took him and his dumbfounded look when he didn't guard his attacks.
  • Episode 39 of Vanguard G: Ibuki vs. pancake. Winner: pancake.
  • In the final scene of Episode 50 of Vanguard G Stride Gate: Chrono is taking the qualification test to become a clan leader and rolls his pencil to answer one of the questions. Ibuki and Mamoru watch him from the front of the class with smiles, then we hear Mamoru's thoughts on Chromo's chances.
    Mamoru: (thinking) He's gonna fail this.
