Funny / Paranatural

Being a comedy, Paranatural is naturally full of humour on almost every page. This is a list of some of the webcomic's best.


  • All of P.J.
  • All of Isaac's Shonen protagonist moments. All of them.
  • Max's dad, in all his irresponsible, silly glory. Some examples:

Chapter 1

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Chapter 4

Chapter 5
  • When Max first wakes up after the whole Ghost Train debacle, it takes him a minute to remember his filter.
    Max's Dad: Oh ho! The son rises! How'd you sleep, li'l guy?
    Max: Mmn. Briefly. I feel like I got hit on by a train. Hit by a train.
  • While trying to uncover the mysteries of his new belongings, Spender gets a brilliant idea.
  • Johnny and the gang's advanced bullying tactics.
    Johnny: WHAT'S MAX'S DEAL?
    Ollie: What's your favorite flavor of movie?
    Ollie: Did you know that everything's going to be alright?
  • Lizardmen!
  • The sheer blatantness of the Vice Principal's Paper-Thin Disguise, which consists of a T-shirt, fake arms, baseball cap, and jeans settled on her Gag Nose.
  • Jeff flings a ball that almost hits Max and leaves a crater in the bleachers. Cue a page of everyone reacting to this with shock and horror... except for one person.
    Cody: Wow, Jeff! Nice throw!
    Everyone else: Read the mood!
  • roughest, Toughest, BUFFEST!
  • Isaac spots Isabel and Ed sprinting through the hall and starts to reprimand them, but Isabel grabs him as they pass, prompting an interesting combination of words.
    Isaac: Uhh, you guys know running in the halls is frowned upon by— JESUS
  • The gym/Jim confusion between Ed and Isaac.
  • Max remembers Hijack's invitation and finds it weird that a spirit would have a house or like video games.
  • When the Doctopi on Max gleefully senses Mr. Spender's chest injury, Spender...panics.
  • Some of Mr. Starchman's hobbies include: Ice skating on wet floors, sitting on the vending machine and throwing change to kids like they were birds, and getting along with animals better than Cinderella.
  • Dr. Zarei's failed attempt to be intimidating, which provokes the opposite reaction.
    Dr. Zarei: STOP!! Saying that internet word out loud!!
  • This entire page is golden but "I know you are gay, but try to keep your composure." is a line out of legend.
  • The reveal of Agent Day's spirit, Venus Guytrap, not just for the incredibly great name, but because he uses Flowery Elizabethan English, and that's just wonderful.
  • Johnny's attempt to interrogate Ed. First there's Ed's reaction to the vague demand of "tell me everything", then he psychologically destroys Johnny, then there's his martial arts fantasies, then he accidentally yanks off Johnny's shirt trying to judo throw him so he just hits him in the gut instead, and finally Muse pops in to congratulate him and advise that they beat up even more children.
    • After deconstructing Johnny's bully behavior, Ed resignedly tells him to go ahead and punch him. Johnny looks very uncomfortable, and we get this gem of a Rant:
      if you turn the other cheek fast enough you can really get some force behind it and use it for offensive striking purposes
  • The introduction of Flipflop, Isabel's new spirit. When Isabel raises her hand at him, he immediately ducks for cover and pleads for her not to blast him. After he tells her his power of flipping things, he ducks for cover again and tells her to blast him.
  • The end result of Johnny v Ed: Ed wearing Johnny's shirt like a bandana and RJ wielding a locker door as a shield.
    • Johnny then has a mental breakdown, followed by Ed having the Ed-equivalent of the same.
      Johnny: If I should be more, or less Johnny... and if the Johnny I've been really is who Johnny is or the only Johnny I can be. Johnny.
      Ed: Hmmm.
      * Beat*
      Ed (thinking): Oh man, he's totally expecting me to say something helpful or inspiring... but I'm no good at that! W-what should I do??
      Ed's mental image of Muse: Squats. Ten billion squats.
      Ed's mental image of Isabel's Grandpa: The dishes. Also squats.
      Ed's mental image of Isabel: Never talk to me again. Unfriended.
      Ed (thinking): No good, I have to dig deeper! What would my fictional mentors say in a situation like this??
    • He eventually just decides to recycle some stock inspirational quotes, which blow Johnny's mind anyway.
  • Johnny explains RJ's backstory after casually mentioning that RJ is nonbinary. RJ then ruins the moment.
    Johnny: From that day forward, RJ swore a vow of song an' silence... t'only use their voice for that which is truly metal.
    RJ: That's right. *Beat* Irony is extremely metal.
  • After befriending Johnny and RJ, Ed sees a golden opportunity for more man power. Their reaction says it all.
  • Lucifer's reaction to Hijack revealing his connection to Dr. Zarei is that she's his mom. He's 600 years old and way too old for this shit.

  • All of the Supernormal gag strips but especially this one
  • Jeff's shirt on the cast page.
  • Zack's first attempt at naming Isabel's grandpa.
    Zack: WELP.
  • Various Twitter sketches
  • Ice cream flavors
  • This banner ad.
  • From the store:
    • Walker's tuxedo speedo on the Dream Vacation print, complete with dangling tie.
    • The Insolent Children shirt description:
      fill yourself with the spirit of the Insolent Child, who defies the authority of grown-ups, even when you're mid-mid-life crisis and the adult you're standing up to is a 22 year old barista. The whole world is your dad, and you HATE THAT GUY.
    • RJ's hood being pulled shut on the Friendship Fusion print.
    • The entire product description of the Friendship Fusion print.
      Commemorated in this poster print, the Johnny gang’s ultimate technique multiplies their brainpower and powerpower fourfold by fusing them into one being. Asked for comment, local tween Maxwell Puckett, who has survived an encounter with a partial Friendship Fusion, remarked “get away from me, Suzy” and “anything times zero is still zero,” like some kind of math nerd. In conclusion, the Friendship Fusion is a combination of contrasts.
      • The last sentence reads as if Suzy is BS-ing an essay.
