Funny / DeviantArt

  • Generally, anyone and everyone who makes a big enough fool of his or herself that he or she winds up as an entry on Encyclopedia Dramatica. Some of the most well known examples were the antics of users DivineAngel, TomPreston and Snapesnogger.
  • Any piece of artwork can contain these, intentionally or not.
  • The Llamas.
  • User ZaniLoki has been posting gifs of Harry Potter characters showing their butts and spanking them with wands. It tends to show up in mass when it comes to unpopular users.
  • On April 1, 2015, DA ran an April Fools joke called Stylus IRL, the joke being that it was a glorified ink pen with the ability to change the color of the ink. Despite the fact that most people quickly figured out it was a joke, they still thought it was a cool idea regardless, and would have actually liked to have had a real version of it.
    • Their April fools jokes manage to be rather hilarious, though they've been gradually toning them down since the year where they ended up taking it way too far in most of the sites opinion. What did they do that resulted in a massive collective Dude, Not Funny! from the site at large? ... Well, one year, the staff forcefully replaced everyone's avatars with either Team Jacob or Team Edward avatars, with some Lady Gaga avatars thrown in, for the entire day, with no way to change them. The resulting huge Internet Backdraft due to Twilight's immense Hatedom on the site had to have been seen to be believed. As a result, the admins have never done anything like that on any future April Fools days since.
      • Before that, they've replaced everyone's avatars in 2008 with one based on Mudkip (based on the infamous meme), and people could not change it back during that time. (If anyone went to the settings page that allowed deviants to change their avatars, they would notice that the button was removed with a message in bold, blue Comic Sans saying "u dont liek mudkipz?") It too had an Internet Backdraft; the hatred was so big that the site prematurely ended the joke well before the day was over. It was this incident that helped the meme to eventually become discredited.
  • The Complaints Forum, which over the years has earned a reputation as the Wretched Hive of the website's forums; with a high population of obvious trolls and regulars who take nothing (including their own threads) seriously, Complaints is now (in)famous for a culture of Deadpan Snakerkers, to the point that the website now has an official post warning newcomers to "lurk" before attempting to participate in the Complaints Forum.
  • The Politics Forum has become notorious for racists, homophobes, and other bigots; but the responses some of the more sane members offer these loons is often priceless, and tend to double as Crowning Moments of Awesome.
