- Episode 29: Natsu, Gray, Happy, and Erza are in Lucy's apartment (she isn't home at the moment) and start searching the place. Cue Natsu searching where Lucy keeps her underwear. The others are about to call pervert until they see (we don't unfortunately) a pair of Lucy's underwear that just utterly shocks all of them.
Erza: (slightly blushing) "I never knew Lucy owned such a pair of underwear."
Gray: "You call that underwear!?"
Happy: "When would you wear THIS?"
Natsu: (with extra enthusiasm) "When you're eating food?"
Erza, Gray, and Happy: (shaking their heads furiously) "Definitely not."
- Gajeel singing a ballad.
- Gajeel looking for a cat because Natsu and Wendy have one.
- Gajeel finding his cat or deciding mid-fight that Pantherlily should be his cat.
- Gajeel now has Pantherlily in Earthland, and proceeds to hug him in complete and utter happiness. Looks like he got his cat after all.
- Two people come to the guild and ask for a Gajeel action figure. When they get it they note that there's a stand for when Gajeel gets his own cat.
- Episode 41: Lucy gets really embarrassed upon discovering that the guild gift shop now carries action figures of her... with removable clothing.
- Erza. Strawberry cakes and acting are Serious Business.
- Also add her terrible singing, and her (what this troper perceives to be) stage fright!
- And at her reaction whenever lingerie is involved.
- Erza tries to pull people into Marshmallow Hell... while wearing her breastplate. Ouch.
- One moment in the anime when she's right in the middle of delivering a lecture, falls into a pit... then gets out and continues as if nothing had happened.
- Occurred in the manga to, what really made the scene was her going 'kya!', a very un-Erza like reaction.
- Happens again in the second OVA.
- Any time when she shows that she's just as wacky as the rest of the guild. When the Stoic Badass randomly breaks into Lucy's home or goes along with one of the bizarre notions Natsu comes up with, it's downright hilarious.
- And every time she does something odd, Happy just says "That's Erza for you."
- Do NOT interrupt Erza's first Picnic. She will destroy you.
- The audio commentary for the dub reveals that Ian Sinclair voices Bora. Director Tyler Walker instructed him to make it sound like "a bad 'Evil J. Michael Tatum' impression" and wonders if that will bite in him the butt sometime later. He winds up sounding like a mix of dub!James of Team Rocket and said actor!
- Episode 31 gives us the pillow fight and Lucy's Slow Motion Fall, as well as the aftermath with Natsu and Gray wrapped in bandages.
- Natsu. Every time he's not serious is just so goddamn hilarious.
- In Episode 39 when the Wizard Guild enters its Darkest Hour, Erza has suffered from a serious Curb-Stomp Battle and cannot move. Natsu finds her and tickles her while she can't fight back.
- Wendy playing a demon.
- What really sells it is the total lack of reaction until Gajeel appears behind her and grits his teeth, causing the guy to run away screaming.
- Wendy quietly apologizing afterwards.
- Heck, even
Natsu Great Demon Lord Dragneel is freaking hilarious, if only because of his hammy introduction.
- This might be more of a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment now, what with the revelation that Natsu is E.N.D. and all...
- Episode 2 of the anime: After the tango from Carmen plays, the freaking CAN-CAN starts up while the guild members get into a brawl (and Gray loses his boxers to Natsu).
- In Episode 10, Erza gets arrested by the Magic Council and is tried in court. Natsu being Natsu, decides to crash the trial while dressed up as her.
- After Natsu and Lucy meet Edolas!Lucy, Natsu suggests they do a mirror-mimicry skit, to Lucy's protests. The funny part comes a few chapters later when they meet Edolas!Natsu, and Lucy indulges in a rare moment of snark to suggest that he does the same thing.
- Lucy Tempting Fate in the Edolas arc. The King couldn't possibly have an amusement park in his castle, could he? Man Child Natsu was quite pleased.
- Lucy failing to seduce anyone.
- During the fight between Hughes and Natsu in the anime. Hughes is evil-laughing uncontrollably the whole time while Lucy struggles to free a nauseous Natsu from the roller coaster, and in the end when it crash lands into the lake, it turns out that Hughes was laughing the whole time over the hilarious "Best Shot" of a terrified Lucy and motion-sick Natsu.
- Juvia taking a comment from Gray the wrong way and assuming Lucy is her rival in love. One particular moment occurs after Juvia had to hide Gray inside her body (literally). Juvia gloats to Lucy:
- It took this troper three rereads of the series to notice it, but during Natsu's and Gajeel's climatic battle during the Phantom Lord arc, while the Dragon Slayers are destroying the place and tossing everyone else around, one of the Phantom mooks took time to appreciate Lucy's panties.
- Chapter 200: Lucy thinks that Natsu looks cute when he's sleeping, and as she's looking at him and smiling, but he suddenly hits her right in the face with Fire Dragon's Iron Fist. She goes through the roof of the guild and lands in the river outside. Again, while he's sleeping.
- It becomes more hilarious if you go back to the earlier stories and see Lucy walking on the edge of the canal, with a passing pair of sailors warning her that she's going to fall in eventually, which is exactly what happened during the above mentioned sequence (the sailors don't appear when she falls in, though, which is too bad since that would've made it even funnier.
- Chapter 204: Lucy and Cana defeat Fried and Bixlow... with the power of Fanservice! The fact that Fried faked it doesn't make it any less funnier.
- It's even funnier in the anime.
- Chapter 208: During the second phase of the S-Class Trial, Natsu questions a random monster after beating it. And it responds with Vocal Dissonance.
- When Mirajane says that Elfman and Evergreen managed to get past her by saying that they were getting married, Erza queries on whether it was really a trick. Mirajane imagines what their child would look like and collapses into tears. Erza's next words clinch it:
Erza: "Don't cry Mira."
- In Episode 52, Mirajane causes a massive Face Fault. Makarov has just finished informing Fairy Tail of the plan regarding the Oración Seis and about half a minute later:
"Welcome back, Master!" (Everybody except Makarov face faults with Natsu and Happy doing a Head Desk)
- Episode 57: Hoteye's Heel-Face Turn and Jura's reaction to it.
- Episode 59: After Angel's defeat, she announces her prayer: That she wants to disappear into the sky like an Angel. Then she falls into the water and complains.
Angel: "I said sky not water."
- Then later after Brain is informed of her defeat, he thinks she dead. Cue to her floating in the water:
- Virgo teasing Lucy about her relationship with Natsu in the anime. What really sells the scene is that she neither changes her facial expression or deadpan voice while delivering Happy's line.
- Episode 19, which has the entire cast doing a "Freaky Friday" Flip.
- Erza and Happy swapping is particularly hilarious; it's hard to beat Happy being stoic and serious, while Erza turns into a total Genki Girl with Happy in charge of her body.
- Also, Gray maintaining his stripping habit while in Lucy's body, prompting Lucy to freak out and stop him.
- Gray talking and acting extremely feminine, since it's Lucy in his body.
- The ending, where Levy trying to fix things lets everyone else swapped around. The characters also Break The Fourth Wall when the episode ends with none of this resolved.
- The best part? THE VOICE ACTORS STAYED WITH THE BODIES!! Gray's voice with Lucy's lines?! PRICELESS!!
- The dub commentary adds to it when Tia realizes just how good Colleen's range is.
- Also, Macao and Wakaba get in this little gem:
Macao: (upon seeing the changeling spell taking effect) What's going on?
Wakaba: That's just sad; those kids are so scared of the master's punishment they're actually spitting rainbows!
Macao: That's enough booze for you!
- Episode 50 where Juvia's attempt to use a Love Potion on Gray instead gives a giant Conflict Ball to every member of the guild, prompting random declarations of rivalry. Some of them, like Macao and Wakaba or Mirajane deciding to start back up her rivalry with Erza, kind of make sense. Then you have Erza deciding that a pillar she has to walk around is her rival, while Makarov declares alcohol his rival, or Gray deciding at the end of the episode that the horizon is his rival and when it wears off he ends up at Galuna Island.
Gray: (after realizing where he is) How did I get here?
- Poor Elfman can't find a rival:
Elfman: WHERE ARE ALL THE REAL MEN!?!?!?
- He enters Beast Soul and tries to fight, only to be sent flying by a demonic Mira. Poor Max and Warren were terrified!
- There's also Gray declaring Happy his equal because he can fly and Gray can't. He then goes to the top of the guild and tries to fly.
- Makarov declares alcohol itself to be his rival and refuses to let himself get drunk by it. Cana wants to be his rival, but he shouts that she's not worthy. Cue them guzzling down all the booze they can.
- The same episode also has Lucy thinking Natsu was going to confess his feelings for her and her freaking out as a result. Turns out he just needed her to summon Virgo to dig out something. Her meltdown was pretty epic. Also, in her Imagine Spot, he basically used his trademark attacks and phrases to confess:
Natsu: (beautified) "Karyuu no Tekken... Let's have 30 babies, Lucy."
Natsu: "I'm all fired up."
Lucy: (back in the real world) "Like I said, that's not it... and why are the babies Happy?"
- Even funnier in the English version
""Natsu:"": "Hey there lady! Let's have 33 babies together!"
- In an omake (Chapter 119.5), Mirajane teaches transformation magic to Natsu, Lucy, and Happy. Natsu turns into Lucy but doesn't change clothes, so all that's covering "his" upper body are a vest and scarf. Cue Lucy's freakout:
Lucy: "WAIT, LOOK AT YOUR CLOTHES!!! THE FRONT!!! COVER UP THE FRONT!!!"
Natsu: (looking down)
"Wh... whoa, these are sof-" (Natsu proceeds to play with them)
Lucy: "NO TOUCHING!!!"
- This gets even better once Happy transforms into Lucy with... interesting results. Mirajane then transforms into Lucy... for some fanservice!
- In Episode 52, when after a long, extravagant introduction of the suave Pegasus Trimens, including a sing song, spotlighted introduction, a commercial break, several posed, flowery introductions, and Hibiki's Weekly Sorcerer fame, the camera cuts to an unglamorous shot of a moaning, nauseous Natsu and a naked Gray exclaiming that he forgot his clothes. Lucy sweatdrops and says "Not a chance."
- Episode 53: When Happy sees Carla he asks Lucy to gives her a fish and Lucy uses this chance as payback for the all the times he tries to ship her.
Lucy: "You lllllllllike her!"
Happy: "You're mimicking me! And you're rolling your tongue 3 times more."
Lucy, I'll give you my fish if you tell that vision
I haven't been neutered yet! Lucy:
Keep looking up my skirt and you will
- Episode 65: When Zero tells Erza, Wendy, the other alliance members that he defeated the rest of Team Natsu... and Happy.
"I started by destroying three of your friends. A Dragon Slayer... an ice wizard... and a celestial wizard. Ha Ha Ha!
And a cat."
- Chapter 226: Lucy slams Kain Hikaru's voodoo doll into the ground while it's linked to him after he gave it to her. This becomes a Crowning Moment of Awesome for her when you remember that she did without even a hit of violence. For the curious, tthe moment in question.
- Bonus points because he's an idiot.
- This is even better in the anime as she makes him do some pinup model poses. And then the first thing he does when he gets his doll back later... is to make her do the exact same poses in revenge.
- Chapter 227: Natsu and Lucy's tag team. So Lucy's been voodoo'd and Natsu grabs the doll and plays puppet master with her when he's stuck under a pile of rocks. Their banter and the victory pose at the end are HILARIOUS!
- Happy stealing the doll from Kain and using it... to make Lucy hug Natsu's face to her chest.
- To reiterate: Natsu is using the doll to punch and kick Kain Hikaru. Then Natsu gets the great idea to put Lucy on fire—"My pyro instincts are tingling!"—and then Happy is given the doll. Now Happy is going to give her speed by throwing her into the air, and then Lucy is covered in fire and delivers a kick while Natsu and Happy call the attack Lucy Fire. What makes it hilarious is how Lucy is reacting to the whole situation. Natsu's face was hilarious as well.
- In Episode 72, Juvia confesses to Gray only for him not to be there.
- When it's not being fanservicey, much of the first Fairy Tail OVA is this.
- The scene where Natsu, Gray, and Gajeel saw Master Makarov swimming naked in the pool literally made this troper fall off her chair laughing.
- Episode 81: Gajeel meets Edolas!Gajeel. All of their interactions are hilarious.
- The second OVA is also hilarious, especially considering the Continuity Cavalcade of gags squeezed into 25 minutes.
- Erza, Wendy, and Lucy are walking down the street and Mystogan passes by. Mystogan goes around with his usual tattered cape over a school uniform with spray devices in both hands (and a whole bag of them on his back), spraying everything around while reciting Naruto's creed about getting the people of the world to truly understand one another and then randomly yelling out: "ANIMA!" It's so random it's funny.
- The absolute crowning glory of this scene is something you may have missed if you weren't watching the right subs: Mystogan is peddling mist guns.
- Both fights against Courage Academy (Phantom Lord). Especially the second one.
Gray: "Move aside or you'll get hurt!"
Juvia: "If it's by you, I don't mind. That's because Juvia...likes—" *gets sprayed by Gray's ice shaving machine*.
- In the second fight, Erza's dress gets ruined and she goes BALLISTIC against Courage Academy:
Aria: "So sad! She's totally open to attack just like that one time... I'm not sure why, but it's so sad!"
Erza: (beats him up) "I'm the one who's supposed to be feeling sad!!"
Natsu & Gray: (in unison) "She's really scary!!"
Gray: "What should we do? No one can stop her now that she's become like that!"
- Best of all was when she pulled a freaking crow bar out from between her cleavage. There was no indication that anything was there. Predictably, everyone else within the immediate vicinity proceeds to freak the hell out.
- This OVA also makes fun of the fact that there was, at one point, three Jellal's running around in Earthland. Jellal, Siegrain, and Mystogan all make appearances, and at the end of Erza's fight with Gajeel and co., they all show up at the same time and are more than a little creeped out by her.
- And then at the end, Gajeel having a job at a karaoke bar, of all places. Priceless.
- Chapter 240: Juvia is chasing Meredy, but because the former hurt her leg in their fight, she's chasing her on all fours, creeping the latter out.
Meredy: "Gaah, she looks so gross."
- Episode 84 has Lucky constantly shouting orders at Happy to enjoy his meals and to do work properly, losing his temper at the slightest backtalk or snark. It makes sense, considering that they're father and son.
- Happy talks to himself (twice, and out loud) about how short-tempered and bossy Lucky is, but states to keep his "trouthole" shut since it will only make Lucky more angry. Lucky hears him, of course, scaring the crap out of the latter.
- Though it's meant to be a heartwarming moment or a tear jerker depending on your point of view, Lucky stating that it's way too soon for his son Happy to have a girl like Carla over at the house can bring out a few snickers, especially with the Manly Tears.
- Episode 86: Natsu's reaction to the Erza vs. Erza fight:
"A battle of the giant monsters
!? Is it the end of the world!?"
- Later Natsu and Wendy not noticing that Gray came to rescue them and he gets a temporary Heroic BSOD.
- In Episode 87, Lucy throws Natsu into the changing box and proceeds to change his clothes like he did hers.
- Chapter 199: It's brief, but Lisanna's Not What It Looks Like reaction when she's being expelled from Edolas along with all the other characters with inherent magic since she's from originally Earthland is snicker worthy. Mood Whiplash turns it into a Tear Jerker a few panels later.
- Chapter 242: We get to see Pantherlily being afraid of lightning. It's so damn adorable that it HURTS.
- Chapter 244: After Wendy is rescued by Horologium, without her clothes, Gray begins to state the obvious, then Horologium replies with "KYAAAA—!! ...is what she says".
- Hades going nuts, full stop. From shouting "bang bang!" while using his fingers as guns to flailing everyone around so they would "dance with his magic", he managed to ham a moment of high tension into a hilarious scene.
- He used to be a Fairy Tail mage. Of course he's wacky.
- [[Pantherlily freaking out with Happy before Laxus makes Big Damn Heroes moment.
- Chapter 246: Why's the cat trio crawling in the pipes? Because Happy suggested it, FOR NO REASON!
- In the anime, after Pantherlily accidentally bumps into Carla's butt. Happy gets mad and challenges him to a duel.
- Chapter 247: Patherlily performs a Barehanded Blade Block on a mook and takes his sword. When he realizes it's a Morph Weapon that can get huge, the expression of glee on his face makes it very evident that yes, he is Gajeel's cat.
- Chapter 249: Juvia, upset over letting Zeref get away, asks Gray to punish her. While on all fours and waving her ass in his direction.
Gray: "I... I don't have those kinds of hobbies!"
Juvia: "BUT I DOOOOO!"
- In Episode 95 of the anime, Erza freaks out after seeing Nichiya and punches him, saying he reminded her of a certain "someone".
- Earlier Natsu defeated Toby without lifting a finger.
Natsu: "Hey, I think have something on your forehead."

Lucy: "AAH, I grabbed onto it for some reason."
- Also Natsu's reaction in the anime, to the demonic appearance to the Galuna Island villagers.
- Chapter 251: Cana finally tells Gildarts, that she is his daughter. He immediately starts summing up the countless number of women he has slept with in an attempt to find out who the mother is.
- Not to mention Natsu and Happy's reaction.
- Also, when Laxus starts checking to see if Lisanna is real.
- And in the same page, we have Natsu vs. Makarov. It's an Instant Curb-Stomp Battle with Gajeel, Gray, and Elfman (and Mirajane in the anime) all with WTF faces.
- Jet and Droy's expressions when Gajeel volunteers to be Levy's exam partner.
- Any one of Mest's random space outs — the frozen river one is particularly prominent:
"I wanna knoooooooow!"
- In Episode 99, Natsu and Happy's reactions when they find out that Gildarts is Natsu's opponent in the first phase of the S-Class Trial.
- In the same episode, Gildarts splits Natsu into about 20 different mini bodies.

Natsu: "Igneel is not a gecko!"

Lucy: "Don't touch my ass!"
- The entirety of Chapter 262, especially the ending when everyone realizes they just lost the three months they needed for training. With Erza, Natsu, and Gray doing a Face Fault.
- When Natsu is eating, Aries and Cancer tell him what the food is. It just so happens that it's lamb and crab. Natsu spits it out and shouts that he's sorry.
- At the end, Gray says that he loved the food. He is then berated by Natsu for actually eating it.
- Chapter 263 has everyone still suffering from a Heroic BSOD after the end of the previous chapter.
- In Chapter 264, we have Ultear and Meredy criticizing Jellal for telling Erza he has a fiancee.

- Everyone's reaction to Erza's statement to take on all 100 creatures in Pandemonium in Chapter 284 is quite memorable.
- The fact that while everyone else is in various stages of shock, Natsu and Gray are just laughing their asses off, is especially hilarious.
- Cana winning the Power Levels challenge with the use of Fairy Glitter, loaned to her from Mavis, and even breaking the scale. Even Nanoha wouldn't abuse her friendship-making arsenal for something as ridiculous as a game.

- The OVA adaptation took EVERYTHING all the way Up to Eleven. The Ship Teases are also ramped up even more.

- We also get this little exchange between the dragon and Natsu:

Zirconis: "YOU REALLY PISS ME OFF!!"

- Chapter 306: The smirk that Gray has on his face after he defeated Rufus and stole his hat is quite amusing.
- Chapter 309: The leader of the Hungry Wolves tells Natsu he will repent his for his sins by dying, with Natsu responding he never did anything bad. Cue to a Gilligan Cut with Makarov having a face full of dread because he suddenly remembered all of the apology letters he had to send to due to Natsu's antics. It's made even funnier when Alzack and Bisca's daughter asks about what he's talking about.
- The Fourth OVA: The girls get drunk and Hilarity Ensues.
- Erza's I'll Tell You When I've Had Enough! scene:
Erza: "Shut up Gray! You're not the one who's gonna tell me to drink or not! I WANT MORE!"
- Jet and Droy being the unlucky victims of Erza's drunken wrath.
- Natsu's reactions to all. Most especially when Lucy starts coming on to him. And then, at the end...
Lucy: (after getting a piggyback from a reluctant Natsu) Natsu's back is so warm."
- Juvia hugging Gray while slowly turning herself into water. Gray just wants to get the hell out of there.
- We also get these gems from Wendy and Carla:
Carla: "You are a llama, got it? A llama!"
- And before that...
Carla: "Faster! What kind of horse are you?"
Happy: "But, I'm a cat."
- Basically each of the girls are a different kind of drunk: Erza's an angry drunk, Levy's a happy drunk, Lucy's a flirt, Juvia's depressed, Wendy Cant Hold Her Liquor, and Carla is demanding.
- Mavis admiring/getting jealous at Juvia, Lucy, and Erza's chests only to let a grateful sigh after seeing Levy and Wendy's.
- Chapter 311: Mavis' prediction turns out to be incorrect and she burst into tears.
Makarov: "SOMEBODY COMFORT THE FIRST, QUICK!!!"
- The preview for Episode 165:
Happy: "Pop quiz! Who's going to pay a visit now?"
Natsu: "Where's this comin' from? How the hell would I know?"
Happy: "Then I'll give you a hint. What are those white crystals that fall from the sky in winter?"
Natsu: "Y-Yuki..." (Snow in English)
Happy: "What's the opposite of yes?"
Happy: "If you put'em together, you'll pretty much have the answer!"
- Anytime the scene cuts to Juvia and Chelia fighting. One is a Nigh Invulnerable Water Mage and the other's a Sky God Slayer with healing powers...and they fight by stretching each other's faces and bonking each other on the head.
- Episode 160: Orga sings a song after he beats War Cry.
- Chapter 317: Natsu's face and expressions when he finds out about the dragon's attack on the kingdom from Future!Lucy are hilarious.
- Chapter 318: Natsu decides to play a little bit of bowling with the Royal Guards.
- Chapter 322: While this chapter is dominated by Fairy Tail's awesome victory, a few laughs are sneaked in, mainly with Gray and Juvia. First they beat their opponents easily because Chelia is too distracted by their teamup, which looks romantic to her, and when she and her teammate Lyon are sent flying, the latter is in total disbelief of Chelia's ditziness. Right after, Juvia is happily holding Gray's hand, and when the latter says she can let go, she flat out refuses, much to his chagrin.
Gray: "Feel free to let go of my hand any time now..."
Juvia: "I'm never letting go..."
Gray: "THAT IS NOT FUNNY!"
- Chapter 325: We finally find out the identity of the mascot of the Grand Magic Games: The King of Fiore. The reactions are just hilarious.
- Chapter 330: Zirconis' first move is to magically strip the entire army. The reactions are priceless. Minister Darton scolds the nude soliders, only to reveal that he too was stripped. Then he targets poor Lucy, who is already cringing, knowing that she always ends up suffering Clothing Damage.
- Ichiya's armpit perfume. It's even funnier when it backfires on him and guild because while it affects them, the dragon lacks a nose to begin with.
- Gray's genuine surprise every time he's told that he's not wearing clothes. Behold.
- Chapter 331: Natsu covers Lucy's breasts with his hands saying he got no choice and gets punched by her.
Lucy: "Try covering your eyes instead!!"
- The following exchange makes this scene even funnier:
Happy: (grinning) "Youngsters nowadays are so bold~"
Natsu: "Lucy's turned into some mega pervert."
Lucy: "AS IF!!!"
- Then Virgo trolls Lucy about their "naked embrace".
- Before that, in the middle of an intense fight with Future!Rogue, a flying naked Lucy collides with Natsu sending him flying; leaving Future!Rogue with a "what the hell just happened?" look on his face.
- This one-liner:
Natsu: "So... the legends of the naked flying people were true..."
- Chapter 334: Though it's combined with Mood Whiplash, Sting comes to help Rogue fight his dragon. When the latter asks if he beat one already, he say's he brought it with him. The second dragon bursts onto the scene and argues with the first.
- Chapter 338: The King decides to host a formal party for the mage guilds in celebration for dealing with the dragons and destroying the gate. Several things stick out:
- Kagura getting drunk.
- Millianna being cheered up when Erza gives her the guild cats one at a time to hug (She appears to pull Happy right out of her cleavage). Carla is not amused. Then she borderline strangled them due to Cuteness Overload.
- Episode 199 (the corresponding episode): She pulls them all out of her cleavage. She actually roots around in there for a few moments each time. (How the heck did all three fit with that dress?)
- Lisanna hanging a lampshade on the fact that Yukino is an Identical Stranger when everyone wants Yukino in the guild.
Lisanna: "But we're basically the same character..."
- The inevitable Bar Brawl that breaks out when all the guilds are willing to recruit Yukino (also a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming).
- Speaking of the Bar Brawl, it looks like Max got something up his butt again.
- Mavis angsting she cannot eat anything due to being a ghost.
- Chelia being somewhat aware Mavis is there despite not being a member. And freaking out about it.
- Natsu stealing Touma's crown and dressing like a king. Touma is telling him to give it back, while Arcadios is trying to get the Hungry Wolves to retrieve it. They don't want to.
Natsu: "What's up bitches?! Let's crank this up a notch! KAKAKAKAKAKAKAKAKA!!!"
Touma: "Give that back pumpkin!!"
Natsu: "I'm the King!!!! I've become the King... HELL YEAH!!!"
Arcadios: (pissed off) "Hungry Wolf Knights...go."
Scythe: "You-you're asking... the impossible."
Natsu: "Take the stick out of your asses... Since we won, I'll be King and you can all be my subordinates!!!!"
- In response, Makarov's hair falls out from shock.
- Chapter 340: Fairy Tail arrives back in Magnolia and Natsu digs around in a sack and proudly displays a special souvenir...
- And then he puts it away again like it's no big deal, because he meant to show off the tournament trophy instead!
- Chapter 341: Flare pops up in the Fairy Tail bath. Juvia mentions the similarities between them but Flare doesn't want to join.
- Chapter 342: Walrot Seeken, the fourth strongest Wizard Saint, keeps screwing with Natsu and the gang.
- Chapter 343: Upon finding out that the inhabitants of Sun Village are giants, Natsu starts freaking out screaming "HUGE!" at the various frozen giants, then there's a close up of Lucy's breasts, which he calls "HUGE!" Wendy pops up, "small." "HUGE!"
- Chapter 344: There is something amusing about the fact that one of the treasure hunters is named Drake.
- Chapter 345: Erza having an Imagine Spot on how things are going to be now that she has reversed to childhood age. Wendy being in glee at being a bigger sister, Natsu and Gray smiling at how they beat her in a fight, and Jellal leaving her because he isn't into kids with Doranbolt showing interest in the background.
- Chapter 345.5: Makarov brings up the bet between the two teams that participated in the Grand Magic Games (whichever team did worse would suffer under the better team), and since the bet was dropped when the A and B Teams merged into one team, he decides to settle it with Rock-Paper-Scissors. The look on Erza's face when she ends up with scissors to Laxus's rock is priceless. The B Team members proceed to do as they please with the A Team. Laxus turns Natsu and Elfman into his servants; Juvia spoonfeeds Gray (and when he starts choking, offers water produced from her body, much to Gray's disgust); Mirajane forces Erza into a maid outfit, and when she doesn't mind it, throws in some S&M; Gajeel forces Lucy and Levy (despite her not competing in the Games) into Playboy Bunny suits as he sings. When Levy runs off in tears at the sight of Lucy's cleavage, Gajeel loses interest in singing and passes Lucy off to Mirajane. Happy and Carla (considered part of the A Team because they're Natsu and Wendy's cats) had to fly carrying Lily in his full-size form. Finally, Cana forces Wendy into several outfits, only saying that she'll be presented to a man who will be interested in her, leaving the description so vague Wendy feared she'd be meeting a Lolicon. The man is a priest at a church with orphans Wendy's age who admire her for her participation in the games. Cana had lived at the church before joining Fairy Tail and simply wanted to set up Wendy for a playdate; the dress montage was out of concern that the priest would require formal clothing. After this sweet moment, Cana casually informs Wendy that at her age, she still had bigger breasts. Once the day ends, the A Team members get ready to take revenge on the B Team for their humiliation.
- Chapter 349: Gray, despite being regressed into a child with less magic power, is still able to toy with Doriate, pissing off the later enough to disrupt the Law of Regression. This leads to some Mood Whiplash when Erza regains her normal body just in time to stop Minerva from killing her, and finds that the dress she was wearing as a child only extends to her waist, leaving her lower body completely bare. When Minerva mocks her for her Wardrobe Malfunction, Erza says she should look at herself first. Minverva looks down to find her panties exposed, and looks back up to find a smirking Erza holding her skirt. Particularly it's Minerva's flustered reaction that sells it.
- Chapter 355: The girls relax in the hot spring only to find that Natsu, Gray, and Happy are already there (it's a unisex pool). Lucy and Wendy freak out, but Natsu and Gray nonchalantly comment that they've seen the girls naked so many times that the novelty has worn off! For her part, Erza's unfazed (they used to bathe together all the time!) and says they should wash each other like when they were kids... this leads to Natsu accidentally beating up Erza.
- Chapter 356: Juvia makes "Gray-bread" which has Gray's face on it. Gray says he doesn't want it so she produces "Juvia-bread" as an alternative. Gray hesitates again and Elfman eats some of it, causing Juvia to bemoan the fact that she was "eaten out" by another man! Gray feels bad and grabs some of the bread to eat, but accidentally gets some of the Gray-bread...
- Chapter 359: Loke reveals that he knows the addresses of some of the former Magic Council members. Lucy deduces that he got the information through a few of his many girlfriends as Loki whispers the "details" to an EXTREMELY red-faced Wendy. Later, Natsu and company visit one of the ex-Council members in question...the old man's granddaughter walks into the room and Wendy gets adorably red-faced again: "This is Loke-san's..."
- Chapter 364: Apparently Ichiya is starting to rub off on Erza because when visiting the former Chairman of the Magic Council and trying out a drink he provides, Erza almost says it has a wonderful parfum before catching herself and saying fragrance instead. Its a funny scene in an otherwise nightmare fueled arc...
- Chapter 372: Erza's rape face after she gets Kyouka shackled up in the same manner she herself had been stuck in for the last 7 chapters.
- Pick a time when Happy ships somebody with someone (and their reaction to it). Just pick one.
Lucy: "Stuff it, cat!"
- Made even more funny in the dub where "like" was changed to the more blatant "love".
- In the English manga, it is translated as "You're so doing it!" Virgo saying it this way is especially hilarious.
- Even Filler characters aren't immune to it; he does it to Gray and Daphne after the former's fake Face-Heel Turn.
- Chapter 374.5/Fairy Tail Special 1: Natsu's idea of pool horseplay = GERMAN SUPLEXING LUCY!
Natsu: "BRAIN BUSTER!!"
- The entire sidestory is a combination Crowning Moment of Funny and Crowning Moment of Heartwarming involving the Sabertooth characters, proving the change of heart was real. It was made even better in the anime.
- The scene where Frosch parts ways with Gray shows Gray stripped at some point of the talk. Juvia is holding Gray's clothes like it's the most natural thing in the world.
- In the anime, Kagura and Millianna (the former likes frogs apparently) end up fighting because they both want Frosch.
- Rogue shadow teleports onto a carriage to save Frosch, and gets gets motion sickness as a result.
- We see Ichiya shopping for a thong swimsuit. He tests it by wearing it on his head.
- At the very end, Frosh has finally made...to Fairy Tail's guild-house.
- Chapter 378.5/Side Story 2: Asuka is with Natsu, Lucy and Happy for the day, while Bisca and Alzack are out on a job. She wins a bet with Natsu that means she can order him to do anything she wants him to do. A little later in the chapter, Asuka asks Natsu if he and Lucy kiss like her parents do and they say no. She then instantly orders the two of them to kiss. Natsu actually seems ok with the order, while Lucy... not so much. Lucy manages to trick Natsu into kissing Happy to get out of it. Happy doesn't react well to it at all.
Happy: "My precious lips have been ruined..."
- In Chapter 379, Natsu defeats Franmalth with a hilariously simple yet effective method: Bashing him to death repeatedly with a really big slab of rubble! Play Yakety Sax in the background for full effect.
- Episode 180: Mirajane and Lucy put on a swimsuit show to try to drag out the guards while they are in Hell Prison. It doesn't work.
- Episode 181: When Makarov remembers all the apology letters he's had to write over the years due to the guild's hijinks, Mavis remembers the ones she had to write when she was guildmaster. Their expressions are identical.
- Asuka doesn't believe that Mavis is an adult. You're really a child aren't you?
- Chapter 387: Happy ended up with a striped mushroom on his head. He complains to Pantherlily that Carla would hate him because of it...only for Pantherlily to try yanking the mushroom out of Happy's head. Not so funny when we realize that mushroom is a demon that landed on Happy's head during the explosion of Hell's Core.
- Chapter 389: Questioning Sting and Rogue arrival, Erza soon recalls the letter about Minerva joining a Dark Guild that she sent to Sabertooth a while ago, but her surprise is then changed to embarrassment as the two Exceed, as well as the Twin Dragons state that the letter was so badly written that it took them this long to arrive.
- Chapter 390: Minerva rips Franmalth off of Happy's head. It was all business for Minerva, as Franmalth knows the way to the control room, but that seriousness and Happy's reaction really sells it.
- Chapter 393: In a nice bit of mood-lightening in a chapter that was primarly a Tear Jerker, Juvia goes all googly-eyed when Silver telepathically asks if she is "Gray's...woman?"
- Chapter 395: After the rather tragic Silver vs. Gray fight, this chapter added some much needed levity. Highlights include Panther Lily imagining Minerva as a cheerful housewife after Frosh told him she's a good cook (with Erza angrily telling them to shut up and keep moving) and the epic fight between Natsu + Gajeel vs. Tempester + Torafazar ending with Natsu and Gajeel cross-countering each other. Torafazar even wonders how the hell that happened.
- Episode 194: After Lucy's clothes are destroyed by Zirconis, the princess covers Arcadios's eyes, clearly jealous. Before this he calls the princess a man in order to protect her. Which Zirconis questions why he called her a princess.
- Chapter 396: There is something incredibly funny about a necromancer named Keith.
- Chapter 397: Levy's EPIC Luminescent Blush when she realizes she could have used her Solid Script magic to create air instead of giving Gajeel an Underwater Kiss.
- Episode 199: At the end of the ball for the wizards, the King has to decide the punishment for Hisui's actions. His solution? To make her wear the Pumpkin hat (the one he used for the Grand Magic Games) for a week and use the Verbal Tic, "Kapo".
- Episode 201: The entire mole hunt. All of it.
- Episode 204: To thank their spirits for closing the Eclipse Gate, Lucy and Yukino summon the spirits one at a time to listen to their wishes. Happy gets abused by the spirits and Natsu thoroughly enjoys watching it.
- Chapter 405: Sting & Rogue pull the same trick on Natsu that Gajeel did by telling him that they'll compete to see who can win the fight first (since Natsu wouldn't let them join in the fight otherwise). And it works again.
- Episode 211: Gray and Eclipse!Cancer's dance battle.
- Chapter 413: Natsu wonders when Igneel got inside of his body because Natsu doesn't remember eating him.
- Chapter 416: Doranbalt's reaction when he finds out he was a member of Fairy Tail all along.
- "Natsu vs. Mavis" Omake: Mavis reveals that she doesn't get the full experience of a hot bath (being a ghost and all), so Erza calls in Natsu to heat up the pool. He nonchalantly walks over to the women's bath while naked and Hilarity Ensues all around. It's all capped off by Lucy yelling at Natsu to Please Put Some Clothes On while totally forgetting that she's naked as well.
- Episode 219: The expansion of the Asuka special. She wants a cake so Erza decides to help. Lily comments that she just wants to eat cake, he then gets dragged off with her to look for the Maximum Special Strawberries.
- Erza's strawberry armor period.
- Chapter 419: Natsu signals the beginning of Fairy Tail's return. How? By setting the royal castle on fire, with big flaming letters spelling "Fairy Tail" before escaping town with Lucy and Happy just ahead of the royal guard! Truly, Refuge in Audacity at it's finest!
- Chapter 421: Natsu, Happy and Lucy are in a Heroic BSOD because Wendy decided to stay with Lamia Scale instead of going with them. Natsu then manages to break Lucy out of hers by tickling her feet with Happy's tail, all while still in his own BSOD. She quickly fixes that with a punch to both of their heads.
- Natsu prepares to ride into battle with Happy alongside Wendy and Carla, raising his arms up in preparation...and then Chelia takes his place, kicking off his face to get to Happy.
- Episode 222: Erza spends the day in a Catwoman-esque outfit as "Fairy Woman", acting like a textbook comic book Superhero. By the end of the episode, after having defeated Mr. Purple ( Macao) and The Smoke ( Wakaba), her face had turned "realistic" (aka, exactly like that of a comic book character), complete with a "What?" in Gratuitous English. Her face stayed that way for several days.
- Chapter 422: Natsu's accidental rescue of Wendy and Chelia from Bluenote, via charging straight through an army of monsters and walking straight into a powerful attack and not even realising that there was an attack happening, just to get to Chelia for stealing Happy.
- Chapter 423:
- After Natsu defeats Bluenote with a massive fire attack, he returns to berating Chelia but she's more concerned that Natsu's attack burned her clothes.
- Happy tries to get Natsu to focus on the remaining enemies but after seeing Natsu's attack, they all decide it is in their best interest to surrender on the spot. It's their expressions that sell it. The little white flags are just icing on the cake.
- Chapter 424
- Juvia tells the others about her living alone with Gray, cue her shit eating grin towards Lucy, who promptly lampshades it.
- After that she claims to have slept with Gray, which causes Wendy to blush and Lucy to hell out that the detail was unnecessary. Turns out she only tried to, Gray kicked her out.
- Lucy is truly holding a grudge towards Natsu for leaving everyone behind for a year. Natsu can only look uncomfortably at her as he tries to search for a response. Cue Juvia's Get a Room!
- Chapter 427:
- When Lucy summons Virgo, Virgo is in bondage. Apparently she had free time and decided to "punish" herself.
- Natsu's method of trying to find Gray is to yell out loud for all the enemies to hear. Old habits die hard.
