    Innocent Sin 
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Taking Shadow Maya aka. Nyarlathotep to play Blackjack at Mu Casino. Just look at the portrait with his smug expression when he wins and the venomous scowl when he loses: even if it is an act, it's funny seeing the Eldritch Personification of all humanity's evil get so into a game of cards.
  • In the GOLD gym, Eikichi gets an ENTIRE WEIGHT MACHINE dropped on him, complete with Looney Tunes-esque DONG noise. Even more hilarious is his understatement of a reaction when he gets back up. And yes, he DOES get back up from having AN ENTIRE WEIGHT MACHINE dropped on HIS HEAD!
    • And Tatsuya manages to save Maya by pushing her away from a falling item from the ceiling. Same dungeon, Eikichi fell into the same trap and Tatsuya didn't even bother. Naturally, Eikichi complains.
    • Later, Makimura tries to be a badass and threatens to kill off the good guys, then Ulala shows up, out for his blood. Cue him screaming and running like a bitch.
  • The entire blimp sequence in Innocent Sin.
  • When Maya and Ixquic say their Catch Phrase at the same time in battle and she calls her out on it.
  • People's reactions to seeing the inside of Maya's apartment. No one expects her to be so messy.
  • Have the Persona Hades and meet a Demeter Demon and watch them argue with each other over her daughter.
  • Lisa has gone off with the other Muses and Ginji Sasaki to perform as an idol, and the others hear that Sasaki has a bad habit of getting "frisky" with adolescent idol girls...
    Eikichi: [panicked] What!? Ginji Sasaki's a pedo!? Then Ginko's...! *beat* [totally calm] ...Probably beating the shit out of him. We should maybe go stop her before she ends up committing murder.
  • There's a lot of visual humor in Innocent Sin even though the graphics aren't the best for it. Still, some of it really stands out:
    • While Ms. Saeko is trying to get Tatsuya to open up about his plans for the future, Lisa comes along asking to borrow him. Tatsuya's panic is palpable as he gestures and shakes his head silently begging Ms. Saeko not to hand him over.
    • When Eikichi comes along to Sevens, at one point a group of students swarm him intent on stealing the emblems off his Kasugayama school uniform. They spin him around with comical whirling sound effects and he's flat on the ground with eyes bugged out afterward.
    • On first meeting Maya and Yukino, Eikichi steps forward to give some "suave," self-aggrandizing introduction - and Lisa promptly kicks him in the back of the knee, sending him sprawling.
    • Tatsuya as a kid doing what looks like slapping some kids rapidly after they tease Jun about his father being a deadbeat.
  • There's a funny part in Innocent Sin where the team has to drive a boat down a river. Maya volunteers to steer the boat, and the others have their doubts. It doesn't end well...
    [after crashing into a stone pillar] Eikichi and Lisa: CALLED IT!
  • If you try to contact members of the Masked Circle, they will cry 'Glory to the mask!' The Scorpio members say this in a really funny, sort-of pained, high-pitched voice.
  • Tadashi has been studying a poster for the band Muses, which shows two women in profile and a third member in silhouette. Tadashi deduces that the third member is Lisa, and proceeds to beg her for an autograph. Tamaki gets fed up, kicks him in the groin, and drags him out the back door. For the next few lines of dialogue the sound of Tamaki beating up on Tadashi underscores the soundtrack; Yukino finally calls the two back in by suggesting that he's probably learned his lesson.
  • At the very start, Tatsuya is told that he has to go find Ms Saeko for guidance counselling. You literally have to go through every floor of Seven Sisters asking about her, at which point you find out that she apparently went the the courtyard. But she's not there. Ask around some more, and she turns out to be by Tatsuya's bike. Which is exactly where you started. Were Tatsuya a more talkative person, his reaction would probably be priceless.

     Eternal Punishment 
  • In the GOLD gym, Maya has the option to tell Katsuya about a pervert in the Women's Locker Room. If she does tell him, you get treated a scene where Katsuya gives the pervert a well deserved beating.
  • Katsuya and Baofu have to run through a really hot tunnel, and both are VERY worried their Cool Shades will MELT. Not So Different eh?
  • Some of the Contact options can lead to this. For example:
    Ellen: Did you enjoy my hips swaying as I walked?
    Minotaur: Mmmm... You, walk weird! Go see doctor.
    • Another variant that is hilarious is the Cosmic monsters or the monsters that are The Unintelligible.
    Wraith (upon interest): You-ew came from 5 million light years away and didn't even emit light...As an insect approaches, the lion roars. Item sold by the dark skinned merchant with no nails...He's there in your-or desert of dreams...What does he sell!?
    • Your choices can be just as weird:
    Choices given: Silver Gate Key, Necronomicon, Banana
  • Some? Most of the stuff that can scare demons just talking to them deserve a mention: talking about baseball, television, mother, marriage, Santa Claus, asking for money. Hell, Baofu just blackmails the demons!
    • One of Tatsuya's contact options is to stare menacingly at the demon.
  • A throwaway line by Ulala in Satomi Tadashi in Yumezaki (after Aoba Park's second visit, but before the Factory) is this in a mix of Harsher in Hindsight or Crosses the Line Twice sorta way.
    Ulala: don't worry about these things. How do you eat so much and not get fat? Does your stomach have a hole in it?
  • Baofu meeting Ellen's stalker in the Kimon Tonkou dungeon pre-empts a very blunt question from Baofu himself.
    Baofu: Who the f##k are you?
  • At Parabellum, Baofu and Ulala are supposed to be acting to draw the media's attention away from the Guest-Star Party Member, when Ulala drinks a bit too much and actually gets serious on Baofu, striking him with her battle animation. Later, Maya's boss jumps in and strikes him down as well, getting him beaten down by two women.
    • It gets better: If you talk with Baofu right after that, he'll tell Maya that her plan worked a bit too well and proceeds to ask what "cross-dressing bitch" means. Maya laughs a bit and Baofu gets an epic Oh, Crap! moment. Poor guy.
    • Better still: Baofu is a native Japanese speaker. He knew exactly what it was Maya told him to say, but he had to play along to preserve his cover!
  • Ulala swears like a dog in the American version of Eternal Punishment. However, they just bleeped this out. And given that they don't bleep the whole word doesn't take much to guess what she's saying.
    Ulala: Don't underestimate me you *bleep*ing bastards!
    • And when she's talking to Elly's stalker...
      Stalker: "You're no different than me! I'm gonna *bleep* your *bleep* and *bleep* it!"
      Ulala: "Shut UP! You *bleep* *bleep*! I'm *bleep*ing kick your scrawny a*bleep*! You piece of sh*Bleep*!"
