Funny: Dust: An Elysian Tail
  • Fidget is often playing as the game's comic relief, ranging her moments of Medium Awareness, Leaning on the Fourth Wall, and also from time-to-time being a bit of Little Miss Snarker.
    • This exchange from the trio's first monster encounter for example:
    Fidget: "AHHH!! Monsters!"
    Ahrah: "Calm yourself, Fidget. Dust, focus! Remember what you've learned thus far."
    Fidget: "No, no! Mash the buttons! DO SOMETHING!!"
  • Dust's attempts at getting Matti to talk. It starts off badly and gets progressively more wrong. And you earn an Achievement for it!
  • On one of Reed's dialogue after completing all of his side-quests, he wants Dust to destroy all the toothbrushes before they conspire to destroy the village after getting advice from the sun.
  • The side-quest where player can lace Gianni's laundry with poison ivy. Choosing to actually do it yields for hilarious results.
    • It's also even funnier when you consider how much of a jerk Gianni is to the heroes and how he abandons Corbin, the young boy who he first sent to do his laundry, out alone in the Ivydale Glen. Basically, our heroes are guiding karma to teach Gianni a lesson.
  • Glop, the senile old man in Mudpot, has his moments of funny dialogue when asking the heroes to get his "hittin' stick", find some trolk fingers and some rock-hound teeth.
  • Going to the room where Tim is hidden yields a pretty funny and playful Take That at Braid and all it's endless symbolism and hidden meanings:
    Fidget: "Well, that made absolutely no sense."
    Dust: "Every moment has a purpose, Fidget. You just have to dig deeper!"
  • At one point in the game, Dust proposes that the only way to proceed is to cause massive avalanches on a mountain, which Fidget wholeheartedly agrees upon. This causes Ahrah to actually break his normal mystic wise tone to deliver his own shocked line.
    Ahrah: "Really? I have to be the voice of reason here?!"
  • The "Friends" you can free when you unlock their cages can cause some WTF?-caused laughs. With the first cage you might stumble upon, you'd probably expect some sort of cel-shaded anthro like the rest of the characters in the game. Who do you get instead? Meat Boy As in, the 2D skinless archenemy of Dr. Fetus. That Meat Boy.
