Funny: Detective Conan
  • Almost any time that Kogoro acts like a complete fool.
  • Any time Conan is in an "awkward" moment with Ran (a.k.a. when Shinichi sees his crush naked) and his reactions go from either being super flustered to outright nosebleeds.
  • Any Kazuha and Heiji moments. They go from heartwarming to laugh out loud funny in seconds after one starts to blush.
  • When Kazuha and Ran mistake Furinkazan as the "strategy of love" and try to go with it, ending in disastrous results with the boys wondering what the heck just happened.
  • When Heiji confronts Conan on being Shinichi. In some dubs, he even takes time to call him out on how shitty his accent is (Or how badly he imitated his voice). In the original, he speaks using Conan's bad attempt at his accent upon 'awakening' from the tranquilizer, which gives Conan a false sense of reassurance. Made even more hilarious because Heiji only woke up from being anesthetized due to Kogoro hitting him upside the head, which causes Conan a borderline Freak Out.
    • Also any time Heiji slips out Kudo when others are around and them trying to cover it up.
  • Any time Conan makes a sarcastic comment to himself.
  • Any time Sonoko tries to help Ran in her "relationship" with Shinichi and Conan starts thinking perverted thoughts.
    • Especially when Sonoko takes a photo of Ran in her new swimsuit and sends it Conan calling it her "Special Sexy Shot of Ran". Then Ayumi finds him on the phone and Conan nearly gets his cover blown. Ran asks Shinichi to delete the photo, but since he already saw it, he saved it. Then the Detective Boys found it and had Ai delete it. Conan's reaction: priceless.
  • Any time Kogoro goes into his "protective dad" mode over something trivial.
    • Like when Ran gets a call from Shinichi and Kogoro starts eavesdropping.
  • Any episode featuring Ran using karate on the culprit.
    • Double in the episode featuring Akemi Miyano posing as a highschooler, in which the suspect she chokes takes his sunglasses off... and both Conan and Kogoro laugh at him. Not so Above It All, huh?
    • Also double in the wrestler episode. While the other wrestlers were defeated by the culprit, Ran was the one to defeat him.
  • The North American dub can be so awkward that it's easy to snark the show to death, but for some reason "He's like a ten-point-oh on the HOTTIE scale!" comes across as hilarious rather than cheesy.
  • Hot Springs Episode. Ran makes Conan go take a bath with her. They return and Kogoro asks what were they doing. Hilarity Ensues.
    • Also, the scene featuring the Sickeningly Sweethearts Noriko and Yukio, cooing and saying cutesy things to each other while Kogoro is all "please stop".
  • Nobody in Tsukikage Island recognizes Kogoro Mouri and they even mistake him for an astronaut, making Mouri sulk in the anime.
    • In Episode 170, Dr. Araide (Sr.) tells Kogoro to be careful about his health because he has the same name as a famous detective. Kogoro breaks the news to him that they are in fact one and the same.
  • Another funny line in the North American dub:
    "What happened? I heard a woman scream?!"
    "Stop talking! Everywhere you or that kid go a corpse turns up! Come on man! Haven't you ever notice that?!"
  • When Conan unmasks Magic Kaito in his first DC appearance. Kaitou is dressed as Ran. Wearing her red dress. And he actually tells Conan that Ran must be all cold and naked wherever he hid her. Conan's reaction is priceless.
  • In Episode 96, when Ran is this close to discovering Shinichi's secret... Yukiko shows up. Holy Mood Whiplash, Batman, it goes from a Tear Jerker to comedy gold in less than ten seconds.
  • A very good one comes from the first season. Ayumi is stuck in the trunk of a car with the head of a murdered little girl, and the people in the car are the murderers, so Conan and the Detective Boys are following them. It's all very tense until... it turns out that the "murderers" are actors, the head is a prop, and their suspicious conversation was actually their rehearsal for their upcoming show. Made even better by the Cool and Unusual Punishment they get: one of the actors is out cold so the kids have to use a huge longcoat and a wig to replace him, and Ayumi (the one who started it all) has to act as the dead little girl.
    • Her line during the last scene in the dub is also good: "I am never playing Hide and Seek again!"
  • Kazuha's introduction. Even more so when Heiji shows up, finds Kazuha harassing Ran about "this Kudo" girl and clears everything up, and then poor Kazuha looks like she wants the Earth to swallow her.
  • In Chapter 400, Haibara gives Ayumi permission to use her first name, which Ayumi has spent the whole case trying to do. The funny comes in when the boys ask if they can use Haibara's first name too, and she shoots them down before they can even finish the question.
  • Don't forget Episode 16, where the killer starts to attack the sleeping Kogoro who suddenly stops midway through his deduction. Conan's face is so funny.
    • Even more when Kogoro wakes up and starts running around like crazy, asking for help, after seeing some blood from the wound the sword marked on his head.
  • In Episode 625, Ran goes to a school festival and decides to go into the haunted house. The entire time she's so terrified that she carries Conan and squeezes him whenever someone jumps out.
    Conan: "How can I get lost when she's been clutching me to her chest the entire time?"
  • Episode 32: Conan realizes too late the Fridge Logic in Ran's excuse for going out: A date with Shinichi.
    • Plus this:
      Conan: "This is so stupid. Who cares who Ran dates?"
    • Finally, Conan learns that the Hello, Attorney! he's been working with in the episode's murder was Eri Kisaki, Ran's mother, whom he didn't recognize until then because it had been ten years since he last saw her. He then lets out an epic Skyward Scream of pure, unadulterated horror.
  • The only scene from the Dub I've ever seen:
    Conan: Note to self: Stay away from the psycho with the dead mommy laptop.
  • During the Furinkazan Case, Conan manages to steal the spotlight by defeating Tatsue with a ball was pretty funny. Given her crimes (five continuous murders and gambling), it was a pretty satisfying end indeed.
  • The entire last page of the Eye for an Eye case. Kazuha makes a failed attempt to confess to Heiji, who ran off in the middle of her confession to confront Conan after finding out that he confessed to Ran. Heiji's face is absolutely priceless. Kazuha's thoughts are even more hilarious though:
  • Chapter 830: Kaito KID disguises himself as Sera in his latest appearance. Conan explains how he figured out who he was, and Kaito expresses shock that Sera's a girl. Conan then says he'll look over the incident for today since KID helped him out before. "I will, at least..." Cue this page.
  • Movie #12, Full Score of Fear, has this golden nugget. As Sonoko and Ran talk about an argument Shinichi and Ran had in the past, well... just see it, the entire conversation is priceless.
  • Conan's antics right before the start of the TWO-MIX concert, after the rescue of Minami Takayama and Shiina Nagano. It has to be seen to be believed.
    • And cue the reactions of the audience and the Death Glare from the security guards and production crew.
    • Let's not forget the face Conan makes before he begins with his "antics"... which is pretty much a Troll face.
  • A subtle one comes in Chapter 808, when Satou takes a massive jump from a helicopter to rescue Takagi from a Death Trap.
    Takagi: "Somehow it seems as if just now Satou-san has come from the sky... her underwear in full display..."
  • In Chapter 873, while inspecting a body in a bath, Conan accidentally sees Ran half-naked and the resulting nosebleed is featured in one panel as a Gory Discretion Shot. Conan ends up being unable to talk properly for the rest of the chapter because he needs cotton balls to stop the bleeding. He claims that the nosebleed was caused by surprise over seeing the dead body, but Sonoko has her doubts.
  • Heiji gets really irritated when other guys hang around Kazuha. Now if only he could figure out why...
  • Some of the OVAs are hilarious! The first one is a Kaitou Kid/Detective Conan/Yaiba crossover featuring some very bizarre transformations and is of course All Just a Dream, while another has a criminal sounding just like Hattori Heiji without the accent which leads to Conan training Hattori to lose his accent so they could record him for a criminal identification program before they both remember that Conan has a voice changing bow-tie, and yet another episode has Sonoko trying to write a detective play and the Detective Boys giving her various suggestions for the solution with the story teller as the main hero.
  • Chapter 710 had Yokomizo inspecting Eri whom he suspects as a culprit in the Mystery of the Week when Kogoro informs him that he strip-searched her to Yokomizo's shock since he had no idea whey were married until Kogoro told him. What follows is an investigation laced with heavy doses of Lik An Old Married Couple routine.
