Funny: League of Legends
  • The Journal of Justice has this in spades. Along with giving extra info and backstory on the champions for the interested (quite a few) there are a number of "joke" articles which are just meant to be amusing. Special mention for Annie doing advertisements for dental hygiene. Yes, that Annie.
  • The Journal of Justice had an article, viewable on the wiki here, about Blitzcrank creating a sort of dating service. The article was amusing, but the best part was the accompanying illustration in which Blitzcrank shows photos of successful (well, he might have a different definition of it, being a robot and all) pairings from his service - one was Rammus and a cactus.
  • For Thanksgiving 2010, the Forums organized a AYAM, or All Yordles All Mid, game day. At the start of the game all players must pay their respects for Urf the Manatee by dancing in front of his grave, then fight to the death in a 5 vs 5 match with no retreating allowed. Things get a little crazy.
  • The two blooper reel videos Riot made of their own Season One CG Cinematic. The first is worth a good giggle, with Groin Attacks and Epic Fail but the second is HILARIOUS, asking Fridge Logic questions like "what if the summoner controlling a champion is a klutz?", "aren't those minions Cho'Gath eats actually animated contructs?" and "just how dog-like is Nasus?"
  • There are a number of funny fan videos, but one of the best is Rammus Taunts Everyone- a perfect blend of snark, memes, Shout Outs and burn.
    (to Golia- uh, Galio) Xanatos called. He wants his bitch back.
    (to Katarina) Was that your ult, or were you having a seizure?
    (to Karma) Uh, wait... who are you?
    (to Leblanc) Hey, try that decoy thing again, maybe I'll fall for it this time.
    (to Morgana) Your sister's hotter.
    (to Malphite) I can stop the rock.
    (to Tristana) Everyone does your job better. Everyone.
    • And now Wukong's gotten in on the taunting! Complete with references.
    • Graves too. This is turning into a trend.
    • Viktor joined in. Yes, this has become a meme now.
      • Apparently Graves didn't think his taunts were good enough, so he tried again.
      • So did Wukong.
    • Rammus goes into more taunting spree, now animated! But the kicker? In the end of the video, the one to stop Rammus was none other than Mordekaiser, and no, he's not using The Other Darrin: Adam Harrington, his real VA, came to voice Mordekaiser himself and this Ascended Meme says it all:
    I've been sent to deliver a message on behalf of the Brazillian playerbase. Taunt OP. Huehuehuehue.
    Original
    Rammus: Oh look. A fat pig. Riding a boar.
    Sejuani: WHAT DID YOU S—
    Actual Game
    Ashe, taunting Sejuani: So, which one's the pig?
  • Also from Stephanos: Tribunal chat logs as read by the champions being used by the offending players.
    Fiddlesticks: I shit in your cat's litterbox. I fucked your mother with a strap-on. I farted on your pillow.
    Teemo: Wait, how the fuck can I blind Lee Sin?
    Corki: How can I fly faster with boots?
    Cassiopeia: How can I turn Malphite to stone?
    • And this one from the second.
    Graves: STFU noob! No homos on Rift!
    Ahri: If there are no homos on Rift, why can I charm Riven?
    Riven: I just... I just have a lot of feelings, okay?
    Tryndamere: Oh my God our Swain is so fucking rad! I want to have his babbies!
    Swain: They'll be beautiful! We'll call them... Angry Birds.
    • Then
    Jax: What the fuck is our bot lane?
    Ashe: OMFG please report this noob team! FF!
    Pantheon: Ashe! Clear mind from dubious intentions, and let us embrace warmer path, welcoming future victory!
    Ashe: WTF u talk noob?
    Pantheon: Ashe, we need a warrior; not a little man with little balls.
    • Funniest of all:
    Lux: What the hell, we have Teemo going top?
    Mordekaiser: I have faith in you Teemo! Maybe he's a secret pro, give him a chance!
    Teemo: Alguno habla espaņol?
    Mordekaiser: NO!!!
  • You cannot escape Jax. Ever.
  • The tale told in this newspost. To give a quick brief, Mundo had taken a bunch of other champions to a bar, and the waitress kept asking, of all people, Rammus if the table wanted more drinks. I think you can guess the rest here.
  • Some champions' jokes.
    • Xerath
      • One of his meme-laden joke quotes:
      POWER LANING! POWER FARMING! POWER GANKING! POWER KILLS! SO MANY KILLS! 400 KILLS!note 
      • Even funnier when you realize that, due to his insatiable thirst for power, Xerath literally had MORE ENERGY THAN HIS BODY HAD ROOM FOR! So he got rid of it.
      • Xerath even has ENERGY LEGS.
      • He's also made of lightning. REAL LIGHTNING!
    • Ziggs
      • His joke emote is hilarious, and his quote seals the deal.
      • Or his other joke line.
    • One of Vi's jokes is not getting why her Talk to the Fist policy never gets results, but it also involves Vi going hilariously high pitched roleplaying her 'victim'.
    • Nautilus
      • While the joke itself is a rather lame pun, the animation in which he performs his joke with is him SWIMMING IN MID-AIR. It's as bizarre-looking as it sounds, especially considering Nautilus himself. One of the loading screen hints even says "He's weird like that" in reference to the animation.
    • Not to mention, the classic Shout-Out joke by Pantheon. It fits him so well, and yet it will still bring a grin to your face. The delivery fits so well that for the shout out line, Pantheon was all shouting and serious, but then goes very laid back, the Mood Whiplash is just grin-worthy.
  • The Chinese CG animated comedy series La La La Demacia. Non-stop hilarity. The Demacian men never catch a break...
  • Guardian Angel is an armor that revives you on the spot with roughly half your HP on death, playing the animation in reverse to simulate getting up. Kog'Maw's death animation involves him exploding, so it would be kind of weird on him if he should somehow equip it. Thus, Riot has the item coded to play his dance emote when its ability goes off instead.
  • Some of the champions' alternate skins are hysterical:
    • Nunu's "Grungy Nunu" skin dresses him as Oscar the Grouch and Willump as Cookie Monster.
    • Annie's "Reverse Annie" skin dresses her as Tibbers...while also dressing Tibbers as Annie.
    • Ryze's "Uncle Ryze" skin dresses him as Uncle Sam and turns his scroll into the U.S. Constitution.
    • Kog'Maw's "Monarch Kog'Maw" skin turns him into a butterfly with girlish eyelashes.
    • Morgana's "Sinful Succulence Morgana" skin puts her in a baker outfit, though the humor mainly comes from the skin's portrait where she's frustrated over burning her gingerbread men.
    • Heimerdinger's "Blast Zone Heimerdinger" skin makes him look like he was caught in an explosion, hence the name.
    • Gragas' "Gragas, Esq" skin features all the drunken uncouthness of regular Gragas in a high class suit.
    • Karthus' "Statue of Karthus" skin dresses him as the Statue of Liberty.
    • Corki's "Urfrider Corki" skin replaces his plane with a manatee.
    • Olaf's "Brolaf" skin gives him a polo shirt and jeans, turns his helmet into a beer drinking helmet, and turns his axes into ones made of recycled beer boxes.
    • Cho'Gath's "Gentleman Cho'gath" puts him in a top hat, monocle and a fancy coat. Like Brolaf above, it also comes with new voice clips.
    • Thresh's "Deep Terror Thresh" skin has a unique recall animation where he fishes up a treasure chest and rests a foot atop it proudly. He doesn't always catch it though.
    • Renekton's "Pool Party Renekton" suits him up as a lifeguard, trades his blade for a surfboard, and allows him to pull out a lifeguard bench out of nowhere during his Recall.
    • Urf The Manatee. It's not Warwick in manatee clothing, we swear.
    • Who is that large lumpy man in the poorly fitting suit? Whoever it is, it is Definitely Not Blitzcrank.
    • The Arcade Miss Fortune skin wasn't that much hysterical. However, when she recalls, she will call out a TV and plays something similar to Duck Hunt. Apparently she failed, and Gangplank pops up to taunt her like that goddamn dog. She promptly takes out her gun and shoots the TV.
    • Final Boss Veigar is a loving reference to all sorts of video game villains, but one of the simpler joys is his /dance emote, where he shoves his staff into the cuff of his right hand, enlarges it to roughly his own size, and allows his apparently-sentient staff to dance alongside him.
  • Three words: Dunk. Master. Darius.
  • The occasional Funny Back/Foreground Events in the skin portraits can be worth a chuckle or two.
  • Elise, a Ms. Fanservice champion with an extra emphasis on her legs, has the Can-Can for her dance emote. This carries over to her spider form where she actually forms an impromptu chorus line with her spiderlings. The results will make you spit your drink across the room.
    • The dances in general will cause you bust a gut laughing. Some are expected, such as Olaf's dance being based on "Techno Viking" and Corki "Doing A Barrel Roll". Some, however, are completely out of left field, like Twisted Fate channeling his inner K-Pop star by dancing to "Gangnam Style"!
      • One better. Urgot, the undead cyborg monstrosity, does the Kirby Victory Dance!
      • What is probably the best one, however, doesn't even belong to a champion. Vilemaw, the boss for the Shadow Isles version of Twisted Treeline, is a gigantic undead spider. Dancing within a certain radius of him makes him do The Carlton Dance.
      • Malzahar would like you to know that you can't touch this.
      • Kassadin does the sprinkler
      • Post-VU Garen would like you to do The Monkey with him.
  • No-one can say the Riot staff don't know how to have a good laugh. Even if it is by taking the piss out of both the whinier segments of the community and themselves.
  • Poor Ashe.
  • The trailer for the Mac version is also highly amusing. It starts with Corporate Mundo going where he pleases and ends with one of Zigg's hexplosives standing in for the Apple logo. It also includes such hilarities as a child's drawing of Mordekaiser standing next to a burning house with "I [heart] My Daddy" written on it, a banana included on a display wall together with a collection of other weapons, an emergency glass cabinet with "Press R to win" printed on it and a water cooler that dispenses health and mana potions.
  • Udyr just utterly fails to give a fuck.
  • Another hilarious fan video is a clever parody of Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise"- ladies and gentlemen, may I present "Yordle's Paradise".
  • Even professional teams can have a good sense of humor. Case in point: Season 3 World Championships, Group B, Fnatic vs. Mineski. For the record, Team Mineski had lost every match during the group stage up to this point, while Team Fnatic had a score of 6-1. Team Mineski knew that they couldn't enter the quarterfinals while Fnatic were almost guaranteed to get there. So what does Team Mineski do? Create a four man support + 1 ADC team, where each lane plays a support. note  While Mineski pushed the towers early, they lacked any form of damage, and eventually Fnatic won the match. However, the crowd cheered for Mineski and a fan following was created because despite losing, Mineski at least has some fun and had good team spirit while showing great sportsmanship playing in the world championship, a rare accomplishment from a Southeast Asian team (since most teams rarely manage to enter the world championship).
  • The Road to the Cup video trailer is trying so hard to be awesome that it's hilarious. Watching animated renditions of fairly normal-looking pro-gamers in T-shirts and pants leaping around doing martial arts kata and unleashing flashy special moves of their most-played characters is cool, but endearingly ridiculous.
  • The (now discontinued) video series CholeraNinja is Bad at LoL is one Funny Moment after another. Highlights:
    CholeraNinja: THE WARRIOR SPIRIT IS ABOUT TO FUCK ASHE IN THE FACE!!!
    • What makes this video funny is his insistence to be in-character and yelling everything Xin Zhao attacks... in all the extreme Large Ham glory
    CholeraNinja: KIAI! KIAI! KIAI!! KIAI!!
    • He also makes running away manly and epic (including the comeback):
    CholeraNinja: OHHHH BE A MAN BE A MAN BE A MAN! BE A MAN! RUN AWAY! BE A MAN! EVERYBODY SAVE ME RIGHT NOW! Oh god help me.... I CAN'T BE A MAN.... But now I can be a man. (... cue ass kicking...) I'm Xin Zhao, and I don't give A FUUUUUUUCCCCKKK!!!
  • The Korean text for 'Annie' also is the same text that begins 'Anivia' - as such, in the Korean tournament OGN Champions Winter 2013-2014, Anivia (a rare and not particularly strong pick) has been repeatedly banned instead of Annie (a fairly strong support), much to the chagrin of the teams that do it.
  • URF Mode, an April Fools' Joke, turned into one of the most popular game modes implemented. However, the Team Solomid vs. Cloud 9 Gaming exhibition was completely chaotic, awesome, and hilarious all at the same time.
  • The Rise of the Dragonslayer video has a subtle one. It was supposed to highlight the new Dragonslayer skins and slaying Dragons, be it neutral Dragons, or Shyvana. But in a blink-or-miss, Dragonslayer Pantheon still have time to lob his spear to a nearby Teemo even though he's not a Dragon!
  • Everything about Primetime Draven. Just check out what happens when a self-absorbed narcissist becomes a shoutcaster for his own match. Really (click on the Primetime link on this).
  • Karthus apparently Can't Hold His Liquor, according to this news flash. And he complains when his bandmates point that out.
  • Casters vs. Doom Bots of Doom. 38 minutes of unbridled hilarity, including casters taking the piss out of a few of the pro teams in the scene and having Poro plushies stand in as live audience (and doom Bot players, complete with audience cheering!) in the studio.
  • The lore entry for Gnar (a prehistoric, 4-year-old Yordle champion) is written from the perspective of Rengar. Gnar starts to annoy him, so he throws the poor tyke's boomerang into a tree... cue Gnar pulling a Hulk Out behind Rengar's back and throwing the tree at him.
  • Angry Legends, a series of Fan videos by Dante Axe (same guy who made the second 'Rammus Taunts Everyone' video) which is basically League of Legends meets Angry Birds.
    • Mundo identifying any poor victims he'll come across with "Birdy!"
    • Kayle's muffled protests when she was about to be vaulted, all done with extremely quickened voice recording, making her sound like a chipmunk protesting. All ends with being vaulted while saying "I HATE YOOOUUU...."
    • This exchange between Garen and Darius, playing the pigs:
    Garen: Goddammit, Darius! It's Triple Oink and Double Oink-Oink! Is that so hard!?
    Darius: Don't teach me how to oink!
    • How to catch Swain for the game: Tryndamere pulls out a cardboard with Garen's hair above and shoulder pads on the side, written "Demacia #1", and then yell "Ooga booga booga!". Swain goes Raven mode and then vaulted.
    • "Hey, Jaaarvaaaannnn... I don't hear you oinkiiiiing..."
    • Kayle suckering Morgana into 'flying lessons', just so that she gets to be the next person vaulted, and Morgana completely fell for it. Of course, karma bit Kayle back in the ass so she gets to fly again, same way with the 2nd bullet point.
    • Quinn trying to evade being vaulted by summoning Valor... but Valor shitted right on her arm in response, and she gets vaulted anyway.
    Quinn: VALOR, YOU F*CKING GOOD-FOR-NOTHING PIECE OF SH*T BIRD!!
    • Followed by Aatrox barging in:
    Aatrox: It's my turn now!
    Zac: Uh, b-but you need to...
    Aatrox: Shut up, noobz! I don't need anything! Watch and learn... *flies on his own* BOOYAH!
  • Can't Killean The Zilean Epic taunting with Zilean's Chronoshift and catchy dancing (to the point that it gave a Colbert Bump to the song "Oh My Little Baby Boy", the song used to Zilean's dance)... Oh wait, here comes Darius with his Noxian Guillotine!! Zilean is doomed... NOPE, Shen already used Stand United to protect Zilean. Cue Darius' disappointed face and Shen joining Zilean's silly dance. MAP AWARENESS.
    • From the same guy, Braum's Pleasant Bot-Lane Escapade, in which Braum and Lucian started out like gentlemen drinking tea until Braum suggest taking bot-lane turret. What follows is Braum and Lucian, in the tune of an instrumental jazzy version of Crazy In Love, doing a very swag walk in bot lane, with Braum blocking every projectile that comes across (including a thrown Teemo). It ends with them encountering Ezreal, in which Braum defeats him singlehandedly by lifting him on the collar and channeling Angus the Puncher, slapping Ezreal thrice he grew beard on his face, bigger with each slaps!
  • The A New Dawn CGI video has its share of moments. Everything from Katarina bolting around to kill Graves, only to meet Graves' shotgun pointed at her face where Graves gives her an eyebrow wiggle worthy of Groucho Marx, to Draven coming in to try to kill Ahri and just shrug at her as if to say "Hey, just following orders."
  • Azir's Champion Spotlight has this one gem, in regards of his soldiers:
    Sand soldiers are afraid of enemy turrets. They refuse to attack them and disappear much faster when one's around. Bunch of wimps.
  • In the Warriors - 2014 World Championship (Imagine Dragons) music video, around 0:18 seconds in there is a Kappa face on the door. 0:23 seconds in? Twitch chat is utterly filled with them.
  • When the Howling Abyss was released, it was possible to Kill Poros by chasing them into the spawn turret. However, this changed in patch 3.8. To quote the patch notes:
    "Poros have gone through an 80s action movie training montage and now have some resistance to lasers."
