Funny / Don't Starve

  • The trailer has one of Wilson's experiments blow up in his face, causing his hair to stick out at all angles...for a few seconds, at which point it pops back into his trademark hairstyle, complete with a comical "boing" sound.
  • In the ending of Adventure Mode, the player finds Maxwell trapped in a demonic throne, with a phonograph playing ragtime nearby. Turning it off makes him thank you, because he's been listening to that one song for an eternity. And turning it back on...
    Maxwell: I suppose I deserved that.
  • Generally, the baying of the Hounds, which appear every few days, tends to invoke trepidation in the characters. When Wolfgang hears them, however...
    Wolfgang: I hear puppies!
  • Willow's reaction to a Deerclops is basically what any rational person would say if they met such a monstrous creature.
    Willow: Holy crap!
  • One of the possible traps is a simple chest. If you open it, the season immediately changes to the unforgiving Winter or Summer. The only thing a character can say when they fall for the trap is "Whoops".
  • Wickerbottom is normally a no-nonsense woman. In the presence of a baby beefalo, she momentarily gushes over its cuteness before catching herself.
    Wickerbottom: Look at its widdle face! *Ahem*.
    • This is made funnier by the fact that baby Beefalo are kind of Ugly Cute.
  • Wilson's comment on the pitchfork is pure hilaritynote :
    Wilson: Maxwell might be looking for this.
  • WX-78 refers to the statue of a Glommer as "stone insect". Literal, but logical. But when he meets the real Glommer:
  • Several concept art pieces for Don't Starve Together alternate character costumes have been released. Most of them are wearing the trademark frown, but Willow's "Burnt" skin has a tiny smile, as if she's thinking, "totally worth it".
    • The Shadow skin sets all give the characters suitably threatening and cool Evil Makeovers, especially in the official artwork for the sets... with the exception of Maxwell, who instead gets the ridiculously dorky-looking Unshadowed set, complete with Nerd Glasses. William Carter really has has come a long way since 1901.
  • Krampus is a Hawaiian-Shirted Tourist in Shipwrecked.
  • Wolfgang's quote for the Evil Flower. It's completely random and out of the blue:
    Wolfgang: Is not potato.
  • The Beefalo song. It is something quite special.
  • Wendy's quote for the Moon Stone once the Star Caller's Staff has been placed:
    Wendy: Perhaps it thirsts for a sacrifice. Where's Webber...
  • In the Valentines Day comic, Woodie is desperately trying to convince Lucy that this mysterious admirer means nothing to him, while WX-78 appears to be short circuiting. Apparently, Love does not compute.
  • While she does deeply care about her younger sibling, Winona has some less than pleasant memories of Charlie:
  • In the Hallowed Nights event, there's Maxwell's comment for the Broken Stake trinket:
    Maxwell: I told you people, I am not a vampire!
    • Apparently, someone tried (and failed) to stake him.
  • Also, the circumstances surrounding his choice of a Krampus as his costume:
    Maxwell deeply regrets asking the others to choose his costume for him.
  • Being from an era before cars became commonplace, the normally very knowledgeable and information-concealing Maxwell for once knows less than the player:
    Examining a License Plate: Letters and numbers... some sort of secret code?
  • In the Winter's Feast event, there's a food item called the Eternal Fruitcake. However, none of the PC's will actually eat it, including WX-78, who usually doesn't mind what it eats and is unaffected by food spoilage.
  • As mentioned above, WX-78 isn't a very picky eater. However, it hates Sweet Potatoes for some reason.
  • Winona doesn't like Maxwell very much:
    Examining a (poisonous and health draining) Red Cap: Let Max try it first.
  • Willow's reaction to being presented with a can of "Ballphin Free" Tunanote :
    Willow: Aw, but I like mine with Ballphin!
  • Winona encountering a time paradoxnote :
    Examining Webber's Skull: I swear the kid'd lose his head if it weren't... wait.
  • The Sealnado boss in Shipwrecked. It's a giant tornado monster that attacks with wind and, like any other boss, is pretty hard to kill if you're unprepared. Once you defeat it, the wind dissipates, revealing... a ridiculously cute baby seal with puppy-dog eyes. Some of the character reaction lines are quite funny, especially WX-78's:
  • In the Winter's Feast 2017 event, the Carol Emote was added. Besides triggering a singing animation when used, the character also "sings" a version of the Starver's Carol. This is fine with most characters, but WX-78 and Wes are absolutely terrible at it. The former has no sense of pitch and just beeps the rhythm, while the latter mimes singing without making any noise.
    • A forum commenter once called the game event "Don't Carol Together", after how terrible a chorus of different characters sounds when they play the emote together.
  • If Wolfgang examines the Codex Umbra, he reveals that he cannot read.
  • Winona's reaction to examining a Maxwell Statue (which is made to resemble to her, the mysterious man that her little sister had been spending lots of time with), complete with a heavy dose of awkwardness:
    Winona: So THIS is "Maxy".
  • In Together, the chess piece sculptures one can find around the map sometimes include a King, which is incredibly thin, sharply-dressed, and lacks arms and a head. Almost everybody comments negatively on how weak and unimpressive the Kingly Figure seems, except Maxwell, who likes its fashion sense, and WX-78:
  • Maxwell hates getting wet:
    Maxwell (examining a Water Balloon): Do you have any idea how much this suit cost?
  • Character reactions to certain Hallowed Nights items:
  • Don't Starve Together - a multiplayer version of the game - can be funny simply from the players messing with each other, as animated here.
  • The fact that in the Forge event, Maxwell and Wickerbottom's main offensive with the Tome of Petrification during its cooldown period involves entering melee range and smacking enemies with the book.
  • In the Forge, Maxwell always finishes a resurrection with a rather cold "No need to thank me.", promptly followed 3 seconds later by the restored ally jumping up and saying their programmed getting-up line... several of which involve them cheerfully thanking their reviver.
  • The Forge has a semi-boss mob, the Boarilla, which is the second-hardest mob to kill, has a lot of health and damage output, and has huge muscles. It also has little black bird feet.
  • The examination quotes for Trinkets in DST are noted for having some of the most colorful characterization in the game.
    • Willow having fun with a Ball and Cup:
      "Spinning the stick in the hole could start a fire. Thanks Girl Scouts!"
    • Maxwell is touchy about his age...
      Maxwell (Examining Second-hand Dentures): Is that a crack about my age?
      • And getting teased about it:
      Willow: Hey Maxwell, I think you dropped these!
    • WX-78 being rude:
    • Wolfgang takes a metaphor too literally:
      Examining Frayed Yarn: Will take to fragile man. He always talk about "pulling strings".
    • Woodie REALLY doesn't like those "feathered hosers":
      WX-78 (Examining Frayed Yarn): WHO KEEPS TYING TOGETHER ALL THOSE BIRDS?
    • Wolfgang having an overreaction concerning Wendy:
      Examining Gnomette: Ah! Is creepy little girl! ...No, wait, is just toy.
    • Maxwell is concerned as ever with his dapperness:
      Examining Mismatched Buttons: My suits donít deserve to be defaced with these tacky atrocities.
    • Maxwell can be a bit of a prankster:
      Examining Frazzled Wires: I might hide those in WX-78ís bedroll if I get bored.
  • In Don't Starve Together, characters will react to other characters starting fires. These reactions range from cautious, to terrified, to annoyed, to even angry. When Willow starts fires, however...well, nobody's surprised.
    Wilson: "Again?"
    Wolfgang: "Is not big surprise."
    Wickerbottom: "What have I said about lighting fires, dear?"
    Woodie: "Business as usual, I see."
