Funny: Dark Chao Adventures
There's a reason DJay32 was known for his comedy for a while.
- Let's start with the one that started it all. Episode one, "Chao In Space" has a couple of average lines, but then it has this:
- Actually, the early episodes count as So Bad, It's Good. Episode two, "The 2nd Shade" gives us this:
- Episode Four, "Teacher's Pet," has a surprisingly not-terrible gag:
Tails: The question is..... What is the square root of 28,566,744,309?
Every chao: ......
random chao: Um.... grape?
Another random chao: Amy's momma!
- "The Top 10 Ways to Get Rid of Dark," Episode Five, shows us for the first time how Dark's lack of intelligence can be used well.
Dark: Whatever! I'm not letting a stuffed "inlaminutyd"[inatimate] object send me over to Timbuktu in a box of deep fried cockroaches! Just stop this "no sense"[nonsense] stuff, Shade! I can "hand rail"->[handle] this!
Shade: You can't even handle big words.
- Episode Six has one of the most memorable lines to come from an early episode:
Tails: Okay, class, today, we're learning about the Real World!
Dark: You mean, this world isn't real!?
- Episode Ten gives us another one of the most memorable early-episode lines:
MP: ... I am Mephiles. And, I have a proposition to make to you.
Dark: Um... mister Phyllis, sir? How can you make a preposition? I mean... making under or over just sounds ridicu—
MP: A proposition, fool!
- The dogfight at the climax of Episode Thirteen, "Flight of the Thursday Players," was probably the funniest the series had gotten by that point.
- Episode Fourteen introduces the "dark" recurring gag.
Dark: Wow... it's ME!
Shade: No, it's not dark, it's shaded. Heavily shaded.
- Episode Seventeen, being the Rashomon episode, is filled with funny moments. Like this classic, during Dark's retelling:
MP: Fools, I am fool Mephiles fool so fool you'd fool better fool start running! Fool.
- The episode to introduce recurring baddies the Beta Avengers, Episode Nineteen, gives us Metal Speedy's badassery slipping up quite humorously.
Metal Speedy: Air boards go vroom!
- As well as an off-screen antic delivered well:
Tails: Uh... sorry, gotta go. Tail! Fire doesn't go in your mouth!
- Short Episode Twenty has an unusual euphemism:
Chao: TAIL! KNUCKLE! What is the meaning of all this!?
They got restless and went all Giygas
on me, it was weird!
Speedy: ... Yeah, let's go with that.
- Plus callback in the final chapter!
Metal Sonic: So... any last words before I go all Giygas on you?
- The end of the Mysterious Stardust three-parter, Episode Twenty-Three, "Return of the Daleks," contains many attempts for a twelve-year old to deconstruct the oddness of Daleks.
Dark: HANG ON A SECOND. How can Daleks CRAWL?
Jast: I WOULD RATHER NOT TELL YOU.
- Episode Twenty-Four, "The Chao World," the first attempt at a "long" script, wasn't that funny. But there was at least one just.. ridiculous bit that still sparks laughter:
LGS: Whoa, what's with everyone meeting up here?
Shade: Heh... I sent a flare.
- Episode Thirty has the protagonists enter a dark factory. Emphasis on dark.
Dark: Wow, it's—
Shade: You know, Dark, that joke got old the first time you used it.
Dark: —dark... yeah, I know.
- Eppy 30 also explains why there are so few funny parts for this era of episodes; Shade explains it rather eloquently.
Shade: ...DJ really has
let the quality of this script drop, hasn't he?
- Episode Thirty-Three, "Shade versus Chao part three: Petty Rivalry," has Shade in his best mood yet.
Shade: Good morning, Mister Prower!
Tails: Shade, you're in a good mood today!
Shade: Never been better! What are we learning today?
TODO: FINISH THIS, you're so close! ...kinda!
