  • Apparently, Celty is afraid of aliens.
    Celty: "What if it was a space alien?!"
    Shinra: " this where I'm supposed to laugh?"
    • It's safe to say anytime that Shingen is onscreen, there is bound to be hilarity. Other moments include Shinra accidentally (he thought it was Celty) walking on him in the shower. As well as the whole argument where Shinra and Celty are trying to get Shingen's blessing.

    Light Novel 

  • Masaomi's recap of the first time he saw Anri.
    Masaomi: "Cute smile... bitchin' boobs... ! Okay, so maybe she wasn't smiling..."
  • Izaya jumping up and down on the back of a thug, then following Mikado home with Celty making motorcycle noises all the way.
  • When Mikado mistakenly assumes Anri was a stalker, his Internal Puppet Show plays out the possible scenarios, including a Yandere Anri coming after him with a knife—"I love you!", lighting up his home—"Fire!", and kidnapping his parents.
  • Episode 3: "Sooo... let's go pick up chicks!" Already one of Masaomi's funniest non-sequiturs, immediately followed by a Match Cut to him attempting to pick up girls. Adult women. From their point of view.
    • Also in this episode, Shizuo's punch sends a gang member flying through the air, and his clothes fly off!
  • In Episode 3, out of nowhere, a trash can flies from off-screen to hit Izaya in the face, sending him sprawling on the ground. Kida cringes but Mikado just stares.
    "Why? Why? Why did a trash can... ?"
  • Shinra walked into a shower. He was expecting Celty. His face was of utter glee. Then he sees his father in the shower.
    Celty: "What happened?:
    Shinra: "I have seen the face of hell..."
  • Shinra's Ha Ha Ha No moment after Izaya trolls him by handing his cellphone number to the police.
    Izaya: "How was it? Gave you quite the adrenaline shot, didn't it? Did you and Celty just grow to love each other even more due to the misattribution of arousal?"
    Shinra: "Ah hah hah. Go die chest-first in a clay ice shaver, Izaya."
  • Izaya laughing as he's stomping on a cell phone.
  • "Actually, I'm trying to seduce you."
    • And she looks so hot doing it!
  • Whenever Erika has a Yaoi Fangirl moment. She has shown a particular liking for a Shizuo/Izaya pairing as shown when Shizuo says he's going to Izaya's place (to murder him...) and she sparkles with blush stickers saying that he must love him. Everyone (Celty and Kadota's group) cuts her off with a Big "NO!".
    Shizuo: "I'm off to Shinjuku to murder Izaya."
    Erika: "Hey, hey! Shizu-chan's definitely in love with Izaya. Two guys... Like BL!"
    Celty, Togusa, Dotachin and Walker: "No!"
  • Simon trying to get his Russia Sushi signs in front of the TV cameras.
  • Masaomi comparing things to polygamy and voicing his approval. It's ridiculous enough by itself, but then Mikado just says, Ployga-what?
  • "Call me 'daddy!'" (Holds up sign).
  • Really, all of Episode 6 is a CMOF, from the kidnappers spilling chloroform on themselves to Togusa's face at the concert to Kadota forgetting to keep his internal monologue internal from Erika and Walker to "Sparkling naked~!" to Shizuo throwing a plastic elephant at Izaya...and also, the dog.
  • From Episode 7: "Shizuo is acting like he's going through puberty?" Oh Simon...
  • In Episode 7, Shizuo gets fired from one of his jobs by beating up the Power Rangers. Made all the more hilarious when you realize that Izaya's voice actor was a former Power Ranger.
  • Episode 7: Shizuo's remark about how much Shinra's changed after Raira.
    Shizuo: "This idiot — well he's the same."
  • In Episode 10, Mikado's brain goes into overdrive when he starts thinking Anri is a Stalker with a Crush. On the flip side, if she's cute then maybe it's okay to be stalked. But then, Mikado starts to imagine puppet show scenarios where Anri goes Yandere. Scene 1, stabbing him with a knife. Scene 2, burning his house down. Scene 3, kidnapping his parents.
    • What follows after that is Mikado and Anri meeting the ringleader of Ganguros and her second boyfriend, looking to get payback for her cellphone getting stomped by Izaya in episode 3. Mikado's face upon remembering what happened sells it.
    • Celty's attempt at lying to Mikado about Mika being her lost relative. Mikado sees right through it, and again, his face sells it.
    Celty: I'm looking for a girl. She's a relative of mine, who's gone missing. I found her yesterday, but then she ran away for some reason.
    Mikado: It's a terrible liar.
  • In Episode 11, Isaac and Miria are apparently members of the Dollars. This being Isaac and Miria, even a minor cameo manages to be amusing.
  • In the epilogue of Episode 12, Mikado works up the courage to ask Anri out, finds Kida trying to flirt with her, and, finally fed up with it, lays him out on the ground with a kick. Here's how it goes down, as narrated by Celty:
    Celty: "In 30 seconds, the boy will find the girl. In 35 seconds, the boy will discover his best friend hitting on the girl. In 45 seconds, the boy will kick the crap outta him. In 74 seconds, the girl will reject the boy's offer to get coffee. And in 78 seconds, that girl will ask the boy to have lunch with her on the roof."
  • Episode 12.5, Izaya tells some guys that Shizuo stole something from them... This goes about as well for them as you'd expect, and as they're flying out the window in plain view of everyone, Izaya remarks:
    • There's also Saburo and Kadota having an Oh, Crap! moment with armed syndicate men.
      Saburo: What's with the guns?!
      Kadota: We're still in Japan, right?!
      • Walker getting Wrong Genre Savvy when he thinks his idea for a technothriller novel are coming to life.
        Walker: What is going on? Is the good lord ripping off my own novel? Do they have mind-reading devices too? Everything I wrote is being played out right before me.
      • Even Walker gets Wrong Genre Savvy on a bag that contains nothing but clothes and Onigiri.
        Walker: [The bag] probably contains an ultimate built to destroy the entire human race. (Kadota opens bag) No! Don't open it! It's going to blow up!
        Kadota: (Surprised that he found the contents to be harmless.)
        Walker: Or maybe not.
        Kadota: Guess that alien was going on vacation.
    • All of the English spoken in this episode. It's just all so terrible.
  • In Episode 14, Shingen is trying to cheapskate his way out of paying Celty for transporting him. Celty uses her darkness... stuff to wrap Shingen's neck in thorny vines.
    Shingen: "I was just testing you, Celty-kun. If you release me now—Ow ow ow they're poking me! Those pointy shadow things pricked me a little! Shinra! I am in grave danger here!" (Struggling) "If you are my son, you should know what you need to do!"
    Shinra: "Of course I do" (Pickpockets Shingen's wallet and throws it to Celty.)
    • And right after it, as Shinra declares that he would be happy if Celty stole his soul, she blows a heart-shape from her head smoke.
  • Somewhere in the series, Shinra, calls Celty "Enchantress". Take note, Celty's English voice actress Kari Wahlgren played Amora the Enchantress of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes!.
  • The Chase Scene in Episode 24 combines this with Crowning Moment of Awesome, mostly because Horada and his lackeys are completely out of their league against Shizuo and Celty, and their faces when they realize it...! Celty "seducing" Shinra later on is also pretty dang hilarious.
  • Episode 25 is pretty much 30 minutes of Crowning Moment of Hilarious Awesome. From Yuhei's TV segments, Shinra being Shinra, and Simon's sushi hocking to the parkour fight, Erika being Erika and the twins being the twins, it's just, to quote Izaya, "fun." It's funny when the fighting starts to spread throughout Ikebukuro just 'cause of Izaya and Shizuo trying to fight with each other.
    • The final episode has Izaya getting a shiner from Simon.
  • Season 2 Episode 4: Erika and Walker get into an argument over whether Celty counts as a Tsundere.
  • Shizuo's expression after Varona stabs him in the last episode is like he's just wondering if she is an idiot. Heck just Shizuo in that episode is just so hilarious that I ended up rewatching it several times.
  • If you're into Black Comedy, Yodogiri tells Izaya on the phone that he needs to take a break. Said break consists of him being stabbed with a knife on the streets of Ikebukuro.
  • When Vorona asks Shizuo on what kind of martial art allows you to flick someone without exerting a lot of efforts, Shizuo tells her that it's from the same martial arts that teaches you to smack people.
  • In Season 2 Episode 25, "Even A Chance Acquaintance is Decreed by Fate", continuous hilarity occurs when Celty comes back to her and Shinra's apartment to find everybody crammed in there.
    • Mika and Namie both fawning over Seiji while slinging insults at each other.
    • When Celty criticizes Namie for her amorality, Namie reminds Celty that Shinra had a part in hiding her head, to which Celty says Shinra has been on the receiving end of her fury. "Please, I'm sure you just smacked him once, then messed around in the most disgusting way. Just like a beast." Celty shoots a cloud of shadow out of her neck like a volcano and immediately types, "HOW DID YOU KNOW!?" Shinra, with Blush Stickers, says "That's so rude, calling her a beast! At night, Celty's actually like a little bunny—" at which point Celty shuts him up by gagging him with shadows, ready to die with embarrassment that their sex life is being discussed in front of everyone they know. And Shingen, still being held in mid air by her coils, says "Just what did you and my son do at night? Please elaborate!"
    • Celty worries about what "That pervert" Izaya is doing with her head, to which Shinra assures her that Izaya is only interested in humans. "I'm sure he's treating your head like a mere ball, or, at most an expensive vase or something". Celty says he isn't helping her at all!
  • When the twins meet up with Shizuo.
  • In S2E29, Shooter appears before Shizuo while following Celty through the city in her primal form, stopping to get his help. Beckoning him to get on, Shizuo replies that he's never ridden a horse before. The horse proceeds to turn into bike-form... only for Shizuo to say that he doesn't have a motorcycle license. Cue Shooter absorbing the bicycle that Shizuo got from a bunch of Bratty Half-Pints trying to be tough on him earlier, with any sounds of whinnies replaced with a bicycle bell. Did we mention that Shooter still rockets around at the same speed as he usually does?
  • Walker learns about Saika and immediately starts fangasming over the potential of becoming superhuman, but the moment he learns that the cost of it would be having to love humans (in other words, 3D people). He turns it down, loving 2D too much.

  • In Chapter 10 of the manga, there's a comedic page featuring Harima and her six phases of stalking. Let's just say it goes from Harima's victim showing natural human kindness to Harima following the poor guy on a family vacation.[1]
