Funny: Devin Townsend
  • Ziltoid The Omniscient is made out of these:
    • "I am so omniscient, If there was to be two omnisciences, I would be both!"
    • "By the way, the name's Herman! And I hate musicals!" At which point the music begins to fade out.
      • The fact that the Planet Smasher's hatred of musicals comes back in "Through The Wormhole" in Z2, where a tender moment of Ziltoid singing "Memory" is interrupted as a result.
    • "PHOOEY! and double PHOOEY!"
    • "FETID!"
  • Despite the overuse of bodily functions in Deconstruction, there are some absolutely brilliant bits:
    • "We all rip off Meshuggah!"

    • "Oh, you don't even know. I'm reeeeeeeal good at dat savin'-the-world thing dere, oh ya! Oh yeah, I know, I'm ready to get my special savin'-the-world boots on..."
    • "What's the point of this? Where's the ha-PENIS"

It's at this moment that you realize that Dark Matters is going to be a very different album to Sky Blue.
  • This video of Devin recording the vocal part to "Fallout" on Z2, visibly exerting himself to the point of amusing facial experssions.
    • The description, as well:
    Ouch. Just wanna play bass.
  • Cryptic Coroner introducing themselves in Harsh Vocals while the audience laughs in the opening track of Cooked on Phonics.
    • The fact that the same singer temporarily stops the Harsh Vocals when he breaks a string, then backpedals back into them with an, "I mean..."
