Funny: Diablo III
For being a grim Dark Fantasy game, even Diablo III has it's moments of humor! (For funny moments in the previous games, click here.)

  • The Butcher:
    "Vegetable bad! Meat Good!"
    "Zombie flesh good! Human flesh better!"
  • There is no cow level... But there is a pony level!
  • Almost anything Covetous Shen says or does.
    Shen: Do you think there is something to eat here? I am feeling hungry...
    Wizard: Well, there are some decaying dead bodies everywhere.
  • The Witch Doctor's journal entry for the quest where you travel through the Caverns of Araneae:
    • Even better, check the entry you get after killing the Spider Queen. The Witch-Doctor admits he feels sorry he had to kill it.
  • The following conversation between Tyrael and Lyndon (the Scoundrel) in Act IV:
    Lyndon: Tyrael, do humans and angels ever fall in love with one another?
    Tyrael: It has happened once before.
    Tyrael: Never.
  • Lyndon and Kormac's interactions are pretty funny. For instance:
    Lyndon: Wait. If the tomes of your order contain all these prophecies, why don't they know what place they ended up in?
    Kormac: What?
    Lyndon: They didn't even bother to read the damn things, did they? Otherwise, they'd likely know where to look.
    Kormac: I...never thought of that.
  • A bit of random conversation with the Templar:
    PC: Did you have many friends at the order?
    Kormac: We are brothers. It is a stronger bond than mere friendship.
  • Kormac's hopeless attraction to Eirena and Eirena's obliviousness makes for many funny moments:
    Kormac: Are there any men who follow the Prophet?
    Eirena: There are not. Do you wish to join us?
    Kormac: I am sworn to my order.
    Eirena: I am certain that my fair sisters would enjoy your company.
    Eirena: What ails you, templar?
  • On the Southern Highlands, after defeating a cultist and the khazra ghosts he summoned, the player finds his journal:
    Yes, with these heathens at my command, the kingdoms of the world shall bow to the might of... THE LORD OF GOATS!
    ...I may have to work on the title a bit more.
  • In the first act, it is possible to stumble on a "Forlorn Farm". Upon defeating the enemies there, you are invited into the cellar where a farmer and his wife hid. If you go down, you will find that the wife is long dead, nothing but a desiccated corpse in a rocking chair whose head proceeds to fall off; the farmer may or may not be oblivious to this - each line from him is part of a Hurricane of Puns, much to the dismay of the Player Character.
    Farmer: [after the corpse's head topples off onto the floor] Oh, she's nodded off.
    Farmer: My wife can't help with the planting and harvesting. She's nothing but skin and bones!
    Farmer: It can be dangerous in the wilderness. Being out this far scares my wife to death!
    Farmer: You wouldn't know it, but this basement gets right chilly at night. Cold as the grave!
    Farmer: You should have been there when I met my wife. I lost my heart and she lost her head.
    Farmer: I can't take all the credit. My wife handles the business side of things. She has a good head on her shoulders!
    PC: Hmm... Really?
  • During Act III while a demon ambush is going on, the recruits are panicking. Their commander...not so much:
    Captain Haile: Private, if you need to be reminded which end of the sword goes where, you haven't been paying attention!
    • And later:
      Captain Haile: You there! Damotrius! Stop moping about! If this was your funeral I'm bloody well certain you'd have been told!
    • And when you're battling demons with him in the Blaze of Glory event at Rakkis Crossing:
      Captain Haile: Those worms have come up from behind! Bloody adorable! They're trying to ambush us!
  • Also from Act III, when raising the last catapult from its moorings, your sole NPC aid comes from a grizzled lieutenant whose vinegar-laced "encouragement" straddles the line between hilarious and Crazy Awesome:
    Lieutenant Clyfton: I'm sorry, catapult, I'm not strong enough to lift you on my own. Would you mind convincing my friend over there to lend a bloody hand?!
    • Made even funnier after you finally get the damn thing lifted, and he becomes amazingly sheepish:
      Lieutenant Clyfton: Done! I...uh...promised Captain Haile I'd watch my temper. Do me a favor and don't tell him that I shouted at you a little, all right?
  • In Act I after rescuing Cain, you can stumble upon a conversation between a villager and a tired patron in New Tristram:
    Villager: You know what would take everyone's mind off their troubles? One of Theodas's great comedies.
    Tired Patron: I've seen one of them. Two men dressed as women, screeching at each other and tearing their bodices? Oh, that'd cheer me right up.
  • During Act III in the base area:
    Little Boy: Stab those bloody demons in the arse!
    Mother: Beryn!
    Little Boy: I heard Captain Haile say that!
  • In Act II, during the quest to collect the various parts of Zoltun Kulle:
    Lyndon: People say I'm bad, but no one's ever had to imprison me and dismantle my body parts. A little context would be nice.
    • When you reach Kulle's sanctuary.
    Barbarian: Yes. My people were the guardians of the Worldstone.
    Kulle: (disappointed) Oh.
  • When the old soldier and his wife at Bastion's Keep in Act III aren't being heartwarming, they're usually being funny instead. In particular, after one event they reminisce together about the time she was kidnapped by barbarians: the soldier describes how he was beside himself until they returned her with an apology, and his wife comments that their leader still sends her a bundle of hides every year and is the nicest kidnapper she's met.
  • Kormac the Templar's truly over-the-top reactions upon encountering Elite Mooks. Made funnier when made against elites in Whimsyshire, the land of unicorns, cuddly bears, flowers and happy clouds.
    BY ALL THAT IS HOLY! Do you see that enemy over there?!
  • In the Caldeum Bazaar in Act 2, there are two kids (a boy and a girl) running around with their pet rabbit. They eventually make their way to an Iron Wolf in the center of the map, where the man kills the rabbit with his sword, splattering blood all over the ground. The boy and the girl then run in opposite directions, crying.
  • Taking Lyndon through the bulk of Act 2 or 3. His endless complaints are rather amusing...helped greatly by his voice actor's excellent work.
  • Eirena's Suspiciously Specific Denial in the Caverns of Araneae:
    Eirena: Do you ever feel like you are encased in webs and slowly suffocating in a lightless cave? Because I do not.
  • And there's this little gem of conversation in Adventure Mode between Tyrael and Lorath Nahr:
    Tyrael: My stomach feels strange.
    Lorath Nahr: Did you forget to eat again?
    Tyrael: No. In fact, I decided to get the day's eating out of the way all at once. I kept at it until I couldn't take another bite.
    Lorath Nahr: Oh, it sounds like you ate too much then.
    Tyrael: Being a mortal is very complicated.
  • Veteran Demon Hunter Greyscarr never shows up in the game proper, but the flavor text for some of the Demon Hunter's abilities imply that he has a wicked sense of humor.
    Blood Vengeance: If it bleeds you can kill it. Kill this one slowly.
    Archery: Feel the weight of the crossbow in your hand. Now... the wind, the distance, the target's speed. Good. Now try it with blood in your eyes and a demon at your throat.
    Sharpshooter: Every creature has a vulnerability. Find it, and put an arrow in it.
    Ballistics: How should I know who first invented these devices? Just make sure the correct end is pointed at the enemy and they'll do the rest.
  • In Reaper of Souls the player encourages Kormac to tell Eirena how he feels about her. Kormac does by asking her if she'd like to continue adventuring by his side after the current quest is over. Eirena excitedly tells him yes. And then she tells Kormac that she feels as close to him as she did to her sisters. Kormac is... less than thrilled when she says that.
  • An Act 1 conversation with Myriam Jahzria, the Mystic (an NPC added for Reaper of Souls) leans on the fourth wall:
    Mystic: I see a village in flames, and an old friend will pay the ultimate price so that the truth may be revealed.
    PC: (who has probably played through this part of the game several times by now) I know this already.
    Mystic: Really? How do you know?
    PC: Ah...never mind...
