Combines with Crowning Moment of Awesome. Even this series has one, in the finale after Kazuki and the Mark Sein had been absorbed into the Festum world and it looks like he might get out of it, the Mark Nicht with Idun appears in the real world proclaiming "I'm still here!". Only to be covered in crystals and assimilated by the Sein and Kazuki. Those who hated Idun this comes off as both awesome and funny.
When the show manages to slip in a funny moment, it stands out all the more. An example? Well, the episode where Hiroto barricades himself into a classroom, and Kiyome recalls a similar occasion... where Maya's sister Yumiko climbed up the lighthouse and announced to the whole island that she would become an idol singer!
When Kazuki is asked about his reason, his reply is that he has no special reason, which earned a facepalm from his father.
Mizoguchi even joins in and say he accidentally altered the data when he was looking for Maya's measurements, which earned him a "Shut Up" from the committee (And a continued facepalm from Fumihiko). And the fact that he was asked to testify from the audience seat because it was too troublesome for him to come around to the defendant's stand.
When Tsubaki takes the stand, everyone's reaction was "This is like bringing God to the court!"
Maya finds out that she has a half-brother who is a member of the Human Army, and confides to Canon about it. Due to not supplying the context, Canon misunderstands and thinks Chizuru and Fumihiko got busy.
When explaining each characteristics of the three new pilots, at the end of each pilot's description, Sakura gives a note in Layman terms, by comparing them to Kazuki, except Sui, which was compared to Soushi.
When Canon tries to explain the characteristics of the Fafners (Which is repeated once in the original series, OVA and movie), Sui keeps cutting her and completing her sentence. He is ultimately stopped by the combine elbowing of Leo and Mimika.
