Funny: Kid Icarus: Uprising
  • From the tutorial video, Pit and Palutena trying to play Brawl.
    • Unfortunately, this was cut from the English release, instead with Palutena confusing Super Smash Bros. for "Super Bash Sisters", insisting it's the right title.
  • In one trailer, Pit finds an indoor hot spring. In the Japanese trailer, Palutena then says it's okay if Pit takes his clothes off, she won't look. Made even funnier when Pit doesn't believe her. Sadly, the English version just has Palutena question why he goes in the bath with his clothes on and Pit admits that it helps save on laundry.
    • Made up for in the second chapter of the game when Magnus asks Pit the same question. Pit gives an explanation about how angels should always be ready for action...
    • In the Japanese version, Pit refuses because he doesn't want Magnus to see his butt. Magnus angrily clarifies that he doesn't want to see THAT.
  • The tutorial:
    • The game's tutorial video starts out with Pit wondering... about the meaning of the title. Who's this Icarus guy, anyway? Palutena tells him not to worry about it, but he's not quite convinced...
      • The above may or may not have occured in "Shin Hikari Shinwa: Palutena no Kagami"note , the original Japanese version, the name of which doesn't reference the "Icarus" of Greek Mythology at all.
    • The Centurians would like to correct you. They are called "Icaros" in Japan.
  • Throughout the game:
    • Sometimes Palutena will talk about how the monster situation is getting worse through overly complex words, much to Pit's confusion. She eventually puts it in a way Pit can understand:
    Palutena: BIG MONSTERS KILL PIT GRRR!!!
    Pit: Aaaah, that makes perfect sense, thank you.
    • If you linger in an area for a while, Palutena or Viridi if you're working with her will comment on the weapon Pit is using. One example has Palutena revealing that Palms use Pit's life force, much to his horror.
  • Chapter 2:
    • Pit's Oh Crap face when Palutena asks "Do you remember how long the Power of Flight lasts?"
    • This awesome conversation:
      Palutena: I'm sensing treasure somewhere to your left.
      Pit: How do you know that?
      Palutena: From the heavens, I can see through your laurel crown to divine your surroundings!
      Pit: Really? That's amazing!
      Palutena: And that's not all I can see, Pit. I can also see what's in your heart.
      Pit: Oh... (nervous) Heh heh... That's really... something.
      Palutena: So you'd better not be thinking about anything... naughty.
      Pit: WHAT?! HOW DID YOU—
      Pit: I know... I was... also kidding.
      Palutena: (teasingly) Sure you were.
    • While on your way to Dark Lord Gaol's room, Palutena compliments Magnus for being a very strong human. Since Magnus can't exactly hear the duo talk to each other, he tells Pit to tell her that she's been sleeping on the job and that she's letting his world go to hell. Then we get this gem:
      Palutena: (completely deadpan) I take it back. This guy's a jerk.
  • Chapter 3:
    • The Three-Headed Hewdraw might look like a really dangerous monster. But once you meet them in the air segment... the three heads end up talking so much that you can barely process what any of them are trying to say.
      • Also, when Pit flies down to confront the two severed heads and it shows them attacking a town. Sure, it's treated seriously (except for the little comment about how they moved so fast), since they're destroying the town, but the two heads happily bouncing in and out of sight in the town just looks so ridiculous.
    • To lure out the second Hewdraw head, Palutena douses Pit in monster pheromone, resulting in a massive freakout. Even better is when the head starts hitting on him.
    Purple Head: I just want to cuddle you...to death.
  • Chapter 4: When talking about the Eggplant Wizards, Pit mentions how annoying they were in the first game, and says this gem:
    Pit: I was there so much they named the place after me: hosPITal. Get it? (Beat) It's funny! It's okay to laugh!
    Palutena: No, it really isn't.
  • Chapter 5:
    Pit: What's an Exo Tank doing here, anyway?
    Pandora: I wanted to get my driver's license. So I whipped up a little parking lot to practice in. But then it hit me. HOW am I supposed to steer without HANDS?!
    Pit: How'd you build a race track without hands?
  • Chapter 7:
    • Thanatos doing the Native American whooping noise out of the blue after Pit contemplates if he's "weird or just dim".
    • At one point during Thanatos's boss fight, he transforms into a Matryoshka Object. By the time you open all of them up, he's only about the size of Pit's foot, and continues to jump around like the other dolls.
  • Chapter 8:
  • Chapter 9:
    • The end of Chapter 9. To summarize, Pit and Palutena have just defeated Medusa once more and the credits begin to roll as they bask in their victory. However, a mysterious voice tells them "Now wait just a second" As the duo ponders who this newcomer is, the credits are torn away and the true master of the underworld, Hades, is revealed. He then mocks Pit, Palutena, and to a lesser extent the player as he talks about how he brought back Medusa and his plans regarding the future of the Underworld
  • Chapter 10:
  • Chapter 11:
    • Pit wondering if all gods have angels. Viridi teasingly remarks that she'd like to have one since Pit is Palutena's servant. Pit angrily states he is not just a servant and asks Palutena for the truth. We get this:
      Palutena: ...I could use some coffee.
      Pit: *Happy* Sure. Cream and two sugars, right?
  • Chapter 13:
    • Pit suddenly singing at the very beginning of the chapter.
      Pit: Again today I will go soaring through the sky!
      My enemies I'll dish 'em up in a stir-fry!
      Gracious goddess of light watches from up above
      At dinnertime I always show the cook some love!
    • Arlon's constant deadpan-voiced sarcasm. Honestly, there are too many examples to list.
  • Chapter 14:
  • Chapter 15:
    • Most of the things that come out of Pyrrhon's mouth are, in addition to being incredibly hammy, very silly:
      Pyrrhon: Pyrrhon has a delivery...and the return address is JUSTICE!
  • Chapter 16:
    • When Palutena remarks that Pit eats some questionable things off the ground:
      Pit: Floor ice cream gives you health!
    • When the way into the Aurum Hive is blocked by a nigh-impenetrable shield, Pit suggests heading back and having some pizza instead. Palutena then adds that she might have a coupon somewhere.
      Hades: When freaky aliens give you lemons, make freaky alien lemonade!
  • Chapter 17:
    • Pyrrhon has several more entertaining lines in this chapter, including:
      Pyrrhon: Do you thing, pyro-snake! Shazammitylam!!
    • And...
      Aurum Pyrrhon: I can't hear you over all this AWESOME!!!
  • Chapter 18:
  • Chapter 19:
    • Pit's Running Gag of asking Are We There Yet?
      Pit: Are we there yet? Are we there yet?
      Viridi: No, we're not. No, we're not.

      Pit: Soooo... Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?
      Viridi: You know that saying that there are no bad questions? Well there are, and this is one of them! WE ARE NOT THERE YET! Though I do wish there was a way to speed up this process.

      Pit: Uhh...are we there yet?
      Viridi:Yes! If by "there," you mean "at a maze." But it's not that big, so you shouldn't have that much trouble.

      Pit: And that's the end of them! ...are we there yet?
      Viridi: Good job, and no, not yet.

      Viridi:Pit, I have some exciting news for the both of us. The Chariot Master is just ahead. So you can FINALLY stop asking me if we're there yet!
  • Chapter 21:
    • Pit flying through a hot spring.
    Pit: Aw yeah, it's a hot spri-blubulubulublub!
    • Pit and Dark Pit coming up with a motto on the spot to the point that Viridi wonders if they spent all night writing it, or if they have some sort of secret twin connection.
  • Chapter 22:
    • When Pandora turns into Amazon Pandora we get this gem from Palutena.
    Palutena: I liked her better when she was just an evil blob.
  • Chapter 23:
    • When you encounter Hades:
    Pit: Hades!
    Hades: Pit!
    Pit: Hades!!
    Hades: Pit!!
    Pit: HAAAAADES!!!
    Hades: PIIIIIIT!!!
    • The best thing about the above entry is that it happens twice.
    Pit: Hades!
    Hades Pit!
    Pit: Hades!
    Hades Pit!
    Pit: HADES!
    Hades Piiiiit...
    Pit: Haaadeeeees...
    Hades ACHOO!
    • Pit's descent to insanity when he's alone without Palutena inside Hades.
      • What's more, if you pay attention to the touch screen, you'll see Pit actually switches sides whenever he impersonates someone.
    • Pit's Viridi impression.
    Pit: (high-pitched voice) At least I'M doing something, Pit. You're such a slacker. Ugh!
    • The boss, which is Hades' heart. It runs around on stubby legs, and Pit calls it cute.
    • Hades engages in a little Toilet Humor:
    Hades: Cheer up, Pit. You've become privy to a side of me no one else has... my insides. And now, you'll be privy to the inside of a privy too! Tootle-LOO!
  • Chapter 25:
    • Near the end of the final battle, Medusa punches Hades's head off. That's a bit startling, but what makes it funny is that, instead of using one of the usual little pictures for Hades' reaction, you'll see they actually created a headless picture of him like that to use on the bottom, just for that one moment.
  • Turning random people into eggplants and tempura in online matches can be absolutely hilarious.
  • Many scenes with Viridi. It's as if Laharl became a goddess!
    • The entire game as a whole feels like it asked Disgaea writers for tips.
      • Maybe not, but what is true is that the entire script was penned by Sakurai himself.note  You know what else Sakurai wrote? The Dojo. Explains a lot, doesn't it?
  • Pit's pure joy whenever you find a hot spring.
    Magnus: Apparently someone likes his spa time.
    Pit: Who's got two thumbs and loves hot springs? Everyone with two thumbs!
    Pit:: Ooh-hoo-hoo! A hot spring! (platform rises) ...hey, where's it going? GET BACK HERE, HOT SPRING!
    Palutena: Don't worry, there's stairs to your right.
    Pit: I LOVE YOU, HOT SPRING!
    • The last point is especially aggravating since going straight into the hot spring prevents players from getting a power or weapon across the hot spring unless you take the stairs and...fall back down to the hot spring for some reason.
  • Letting the game stay at the "The End" screen after the end credits for a while brings in Hades to break what remains of the Fourth Wall.
  • Pyrrhon can be considered a living embodiment of this trope with some of his lines. "Do your thing, Pyro Snake! SHAZAMITYLAM!!"
    • He uses the Pyro Snake again while he's taken over by the Aurum Brain, and when he does it he says "SHAZAMITYLAM" with a Creepy Monotone that sounds so wrong it's hilarious.
  • A Brick Joke involving the benefits of gods:
    Palutena: "We may not have the best dental plan, but justice is on our side!"

Kid Icarus: Uprising - Thanatos Rising

  • Thanatos' constant referral to the Trojan horse siege engines as "ponies".
  • In part 2, it turns out that Palutena controls Pit's flight path by balancing on one foot.
    • And she uses her scepter like a Wiimote.
  • Also in part 2, Palutena tells Pit where Thanatos is going to strike. Pit asks how she figured this out.
    • She then admits that she was just messing with Pit with that answer. But not because Thanatos doesn't have a blog (that we know of), but because she's too busy to read every blog.
  • RAAAAAAGE QUIT! RAAAAAAAAGE QUIT!

Kid Icarus: Uprising - Palutena's Revolting Dinner

  • All of it, but especially Palutena fleeing from the rolling pillar behind her.
  • This exchange:
    Pit: Veggies again, Lady Palutena?
    Palutena: Oh, Pit. Keep eating hamburgers and you'll turn into one!
    Pit: W-what?! You're not serious, are you?
    • "Uh, how about doughnuts or cake, Lady Palutena?"
  • Palutena whimsically going on about preparing carrots even as they're making an escape:
    Palutena: ...but you're still on the menu so slicey-dicey and into a nice hot oil bath!
  • When the oven explodes, Palutena gets a perm.
  • Before Palutena uses the Wolf Claws to cut the vegetables, one of the still-rebellious squash chomps on her hand from behind. Cue Silence Is Golden as she turns her back to see three of them.
    • Then the claws end up exploding the palace...with her head inside a squash. Makes you wonder what Pit thought happened.
  • This little line Palutena gives at the end of Part 2:
    Palutena: Pit...we are going out for dinner.
  • While Palutena is dangling from a rope by the leg, Pit contacts her. She pretends she's still in the kitchen and sends him to pick up more vegetables to buy herself more time.
