Funny / Puyo Puyo

As expected from a generally light-hearted and wacky series, there's bound to be a bunch of these moments.

    open/close all folders 

    Puyo Puyo 
  • Arle's encounter with Schezo in the original game's CD remake, specifically the extended version when played on Hardest. Schezo says his (always misunderstood) Catch-Phrase, but Arle completely misinterprets it as wanting something...more than that, turning red and saying she's not a lady yet and her heart's not ready. The funnier part is that Schezo stares blankly, complete with a nose drip and his sword getting droopier as she rambles on.
  • In the final cutscene, leading to the match against Satan, he tries to make an epic entrance... which gets completely blown when Arle calls him Santa.

    Puyo Puyo TSU 
  • Masked Satan's appearance, combined with how Satan is trying to enforce himself as an entirely different person. In some versions, he even spells his name out loud in kana to point that out to Arle, who never buys it and keeps demanding him to take off the mask.
  • In the PlayStation version's Rally mode, if you battle Satan instead of Masked Satan, he will be dressed as Santanote . Arle goes full Color Failure when that happens, then Face Faults when Carbuncle steals Satan's gifts.
  • Similarly, in Rally mode's battle against Schezo, Arle immediately calls him a pervert. When Schezo demands to know why she said that, Arle keeps calling him that way, and the word "pervert" that appears over Schezo's head somehow lands on his head as if it were tangible. Schezo throws a fit and shoves it off, and tries to be intimidating to Arle... only to discover she was ignoring him the whole time. Schezo goes Color Failure as a result.

    Puyo Puyo SUN 
  • Really though, it's harder to find what isn't funny in SUN.
  • Draco's story:
    • VS Skeleton T Skeleton T is just enjoying some tea, until Draco breathes fire on his pot and evaporates the tea, needless to say, Skeleton T was NOT happy.
    • VS Harpy After finding Harpy on the ground, Draco give her some water, Harpy then decides to sing a song...and destroy Draco's ears.
    • VS Choppun A high tide surprises Draco, and the wave that Choppun starts to surf on carries Draco away, leaving a funny background moment.
    • Ending Once you get past the blatant fan service, Draco finally gets to sunbathe...and gets sunburnt so much she gets launched into space.
  • Arle's story:
    • VS Draco Arle finds a sunburnt Draco on the ground, upon seeing Arle, Draco challenges her, but immediately falls back down because she feels dizzy. If you went to Normal right after clearing Easy, then this scene happened almost immediately.
    • VS Incubus Incubus asks Arle on a date, and not only does he get rejected, his makeup starts running because he is sweating, warranting an "Oh shit!" from him.
    • VS Kikimora Walking along the path, Arle notices Kikimora 'spring cleaning.' After trying to walk past, Kikimora trips her up, give her a lecture, then runs around with Arle on the end of her mop. She's basically mopping the floor with her.
    • VS Nohoho Nohoho is eating some curry, when spots appear all over him, he deduces he is allergic to curry. This freaks Arle out and sends her into a frenzy of itching herself.
    • VS Kodomo Dragon Kodomo Dragon claims to have found an 'unusual insect.' Arle looks around, asking where, only for a net to go over her head and Kodomo Dragon stating he 'caught the insect.' Arle is, understandably, angry.
    • VS Witch. Lesson: Never sleep on a tree alongside other sleeping people.
    • VS Zoh Diamaoh Zoh hates the heat so much, he burns a hole through the ground. leaving Arle to panic and scream 'It's a natural disaster!'
    • VS Honeybee Arle notices Honeybee just in time to avoid the 'Assault from the sky', but Honeybee then repeats the phrase multiple times while chasing Arle around in a circle.
    • VS Lagnus Lagnus is poking at a Puyo with his sword before plunging his sword into it, gaining some EXP to 'Level Up' into his adult form...only for his pants to fall. It's worth reminding that this was Lagnus's first appearance in the series. There's also the weirdly funny irony in Arle telling him that Puyo don't like to be bullied...when they're popped en masse as spell fodder in matches.
    • VS Rulue Rulue is actually nice to Arle... until Arle requests Rulue to take her to Satan's castle. Rulue then asks Minotouros (who's keeping her cool by waving a leaf at her like a fan) to dispatch of Arle, he blows Arle away with the leaf...right into Rulue and they go flying to the ocean.
    • VS Schezo Arle immediately starts teasing a sunburnt Schezo, quickly enraging him and causing him to flail his sword wildly at her.
    • VS Satan Arle questions Satan about why he made the sun large, he misinterprets it as his plan to attract girls already working. Arle immediately launches 'Fire' and set him alight, making him jump around like crazy as Arle threatens to 'burn him until he's as dark as a grilled fish.'
    • Ending Arle switches off the sun-enlarging beam, and the sun is back to normal. Carbuncle comes in, fires his laser, and the sun is large again...way to go.
  • Schezo's story:
    • VS Witch. DUEL OF PERVERTS! At least, that's what Schezo calls it.
    • VS Zoh Diamaoh Zoh finally gets out of the hole he burned in Arle's story. Schezo, completely freaked out by this, calls him a demon, which makes Zoh mad (again) and makes him burn ANOTHER hole in the ground, taking Schezo with him and setting him on fire!
    • VS Honeybee Honeybee launches another 'Assault from the sky' and stabs Schezo in the back of the head. The stab doesn't go unnoticed, but because he doesn't realize where Honeybee is, he brushes it off as his imagination, and walks off...with Honeybee still stuck to his head.
    • VS Lagnus Lagnus tries to launch an attack on Schezo, but misses and turns back into a child. Schezo absolutely relishes in his misfortune, causing Lagnus to throw a tantrum.
    • VS Rulue Rulue, sunbathing, immediately assumes Schezo is looking at her, and calls him a pervert. Schezo manages to ignore her and walk by, prompting confrontation from Rulue, only for things to get awkward when Rulue assumes Schezo's gay.
    • VS Arle Of course, any time Schezo gets to Arle, he has to mess up his words and be called a pervert. Schezo gets mad enough to the point where he starts swinging his sword wildly.
    • VS Satan Schezo burns a bald spot onto Satan's head. Satan's reaction is priceless.
    • Ending After breaking the sun enlarging device, Satan sneaks up behind Schezo and beats the crap out of him. Schezo is having none of it, complete with a fourth-wall break.
    Schezo: We're at the end but what's with this ending!?

    Minna de Puyo Puyo/Puyo Pop 
  • Arle, everywhere from being a Deadpan Snarker to catching up to every character's Running Gag, such as Kikimora's tutorials or Zoh Daimaoh's You Shall Not Pass. This goes Up to Eleven in the overseas version's english cutscenes (Which are different from the japanese version's)
    Incubus: Hey! I just want to get to know you! What's your sign, baby?
    Arle: Octagon. As in "stop".
  • In the final story mode location, Arle encounters the typical final enemies she's always encountered... until halfway-through, where she encounters Skeleton-T of all characters, who states he's become much more powerful... even though his AI is literally the same as before, the only difference being the drop speed. It's so unexpected it's difficult not to laugh.
  • The story mode involves Arle collecting pieces of a MacGuffin. When Satan gives her the final piece and she completes it, she realizes it's a ticket for two of a spa. Arle promptly throws it (And Satan's hopes) away, when she states she has no one to go along with.
    • There's also an alternate ending if you collect all the collectibles in the area. Satan discloses what the runes are made of: CURRY. Arle instead breaks it in pieces, releasing the suppressed scent, and deciding to head home to cook some curry. It's implied she cooked with it!
  • The credits sequence has Arle cooking up a plate of curry for Carbuncle. He wanders off as the credits scroll...only for him to trip and spill his plate on Satan (who's still in a pile of Puyo) at the end.

    Puyo Puyo Fever 
  • At the end of the WakuWaku Course, Accord congratulates Amitie on finding her flying cane, and suggests Amitie should get the reward, Amitie, trying to be humble, claims she doesn't have to, so Accord leaves without giving Amitie the reward, leaving Amitie lost for words.
  • At the end of the HaraHara Course, Raffine asks Ms. Accord for her prize, Accord asks her to turn around and close her eyes, when she does, Accord pulls out a giant hammer and whacks her on the head, then steals her catchphrase "Oh la-ti-da."

    Puyo Puyo Fever 2 
  • Amitie's WakuWaku course:
    • VS Frankensteins. When Amitie notices their challenge, she complains about how it's a '2 on 1 fight', she then goes offscreen and comes back carrying Dongurigaeru on her head, claiming to be 'long lost brother and sister' and she dubs him 'Ribbitie'. Clearly, the Frankensteins don't believe her. Dongurigaeru sighs, jumps off Amitie's head and rolls away, leaving Amitie pleading for him to come back.
    • VS Lemres. Poor guy does not realize how creepy offering candy when you are a complete stranger for her looks like. There's also the fact Lemres only bothers to ask Amitie if she's from Primp ''after'' she defeats him. Lemres asks her to bring him to Ms. Accord, which she does... by dragging him to her.
  • Sig's WakuWaku course:
    • Overall, Sig's Hair Antennae. When they twitch, they basically cause anyone to drop whatever topic they were talking about. Oniko (Onion Pixy's girlfriend) falls in love with Sig, which creeps Sig out and makes Onion Pixy mad, Rider gets curious and wants to know more about them, which Sig misinterprets as wanting a Puyo battle, and Arle gets briefly frozen by the sight.
    • VS Lemres. The latter greets him, but Sig tries to leave. Lemres stops him, and asks Sig if he's lost. When he says so, Lemres has an "I knew it" moment... because he's also lost, and asks Sig if he's from Primp. After confirming he comes from there, Lemres asks him if they could go there together... but Sig tries to leave again. Lemres stops him again and challenges him to a Puyo battle. Sig beats him, and is about to leave, when he reads the note Ms. Accord gave him at the beginning - he realizes Lemres is the person Amitie has been looking for. So what does Sig do? Patch him up and head back to Primp... leaving him behind.
    Lemres: Why, hello there.
    Sig: Bye there. (Attempts to leave)
  • The three HaraHara courses have something in common: The fact that the Big Bad, Strange Klug, is of no importance for the three main characters, especially Raffine and Sig, who literally take his items and leave him behind (At least Amitie learns from Lemres that he is in possession of Klug's body). Strange Klug practically begs them to defeat him for real, but he is ignored, and the only reason he gets trapped in his book again is because of the Contrived Coincidence that Amitie, Raffine and Sig were after the three items that powered his possession up. It goes along with the fact that no one bar Lemres (And Amitie, but only because of the former) notices Klug is Not Himself.
  • Amitie's HaraHara course:
    • VS Klug. Klug tries to explain to Amitie about Lemres, so he gives her a magazine that has an article about him. All of a sudden, Amitie blushes at the fact Klug reads "that kind of book"note . Klug gets embarassed and angered at the fact Amitie was reading "the wrong page".
    • VS Oshare Bones. Amitie points out the fact the skeleton that tries to give fashion advice wears no pants. Oshare's reaction is priceless, going stiff and falling over, getting back up in the same pose, and screaming in a high pitched voice challenging Amitie to a puyo battle. Also funny is Amitie's expression at the beginning of the scene, it's as if this happens almost every day and Amitie has gotten tired of it.
  • Sig's HaraHara course: The ending. After Ocean Prince picks the Lantern of Star and becomes a dolphin again, he goes to the beach with Sig and frees him from his servitude. Ocean Prince then goes underwater and jumps a few times across the sea... and gets eaten whole by a whale.
    Sig: Oops.

    Puyo Puyo 7 
  • This game marks the debut of Ringo and her overdramatic shocked sprite.
  • During Episode 18 and 19, Ringo is confronted by Maguro and Risukuma being controlled against their will. Should you select Satan in these cutscenes, Ringo deals with forcing Satan to do it for her. He wants none of it.
    Satan: (vs Maguro) Hey! Go fight your own battles!
    Satan: (vs Risukuma) Will you cut that out already?!

    Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary 
  • In the final battle in Lemres's story mode, after fighting sweets withdrawal symptoms, he ends up in the cave Schezo is hiding in. For the latter's disgust, Lemres discovers the cave's secret kitchen, and a wedding cake Schezo was preparing, eating it whole. Lemres's reaction to finding the cake is what sells this scene:
    Lemres: Cakey... cakey... cakey cakey cakey cakey cakey... CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYY!!!
  • Yu & Rei VS Ringo. The latter's freakout upon finding the ghost twins is huge.
  • Schezo's story is basically everyone coming across his cave to annoy him (Ranging from Klug trying to take some crystals to Sig causing a mess to find a bug), then stopping Satan by sheer coincidence.
  • Klug's story. In the first match, he finds a potion on the ground and promptly drinks it up, to the dismay of Witch. After that, Klug gets into a drunk-like state and starts annoying everyone, up to and including taking off his clothes in front of Feli (Who, for the first time, is the one that gets freaked out).
  • Feli VS Ocean Prince. The latter tells Feli he's trying to find a hiding place to avoid his pursuer, and he manages to find one... under Feli's skirt.
  • Draco's story involves her attempt to reach the beach and find "an awesome swimsuit" Arle told her about. From that onwards, Draco continuously gets lost and hurt along the way, until she reaches the beach... where she finds out that swimsuit is being worn by Suketoudara.

    Puyo Puyo Tetris 
  • Ringo's constant forshadowing, such as in the prologue, where Ringo says she wouldn't mind if something unexpected happened, such as her friendsnote  bursting out of the sky. Right on cue, Arle and Amitie arrive, even Ringo says "This feels like...Blatant forshadowing!" in the Japanese script.
  • Obviously, everything has to happen just after Tee reports no ripples in the Constellation Zone. Just when he says everything is peaceful, the girls come crashing into the Tetra.
  • When Tee and Ringo both declare their desire to use their respective forms of battle, they both stop for a moment and, stunned, realise at the last moment neither of them even understand their system.
  • Jay & Elle listing all the pranks they've done to Ai. It's a lot of pranks.
  • How Ringo and Amitie suggest trying to find Arle... To listen for Carbuncle's signature phrase. It's exactly how they manage to find her.
  • After ending up in the S.S. Tetra, Arle is cornered by Zed. When she's saved by Ringo, Arle tells her Zed was trying to teach her how to be a proper girl. She isn't THAT kind of girl.
  • Tee's rather professional report after his starship crashes.
    Tee: Ship status; very broken. Crew status; very missing.
  • Tee finding Jay & Elle before they can do any mischief.
  • A mind-controlled Raffina demands that Amitie must get out of her way or else she'll "kick her, really, super hard." Yeah, uh, nice choice of words there, Raffina.
  • Ess calls Raffina an arrogant, spoiled, stuck-up, self-entitled girl...when Ess herself isn't so different from her. It certainly doesn't go unnoticed by Tee.
  • After Lemres reveals that two individuals note  were seen while Primp Town was being flooded with tetriminos, Arle and Ringo complain about "that rotten pair" being at it again. Elle and Jay arrive believing they were that "rotten pair". And then they complain when Tee tells them he's not talking about them.
  • Tee gets his first taste of sweets and Lemres just gives him more and more.
  • Arle blames Satan for causing all the events to happen, and his response is to call her a "big stupid meanie" and bawl like a little kid. In the English version, he calls her and her friends "a bunch of meanie-pants."
  • Shortly after arriving to Primp Town, Klug appears, running away from Feli, who is mind-controlled...and he is quick to deny he is running from her out of fear, but instead walked up to the group of his own volition. No one's buying that, Klug.
    • After breaking Feli out of her mind control, no one could tell if the battle did anything due to her being creepy by default. It takes Lemres' presence to prove that she's back to normal.
    • Klug gets into an argument with Feli. Ruining the moment between Lemres and her.
    • The many ways Ringo refers to Feli:
    (Japanese, 2-9) Ringo: It's the manipulating, punishing, darkness-radiating girl...!!
    (English, 2-9) Ringo: Hey, wait, it's you! The super-duper, hairy-scary, evil-weevil, weirdy-wacky, gothy-girl!
    (Japanese, 4-3) Ringo: You there, person who's 5 times scarier than usual!
    (English, 4-3) Ringo: YOU! Little Miss Spookyface! I'm talkin' to you!
  • Sig during his confrontation with Raffine, especially after Amitie arrives.
  • Arle loses track of Satan and proposes to find Schezo for help. Instead of looking for him, she makes him come to her by calling him a creeper/pervert at the top of her lungs, knowing all too well he doesn't like that. It actually works. And in the English version, Schezo utters the following quote that practically solidifies what to expect from him.
    Schezo: The time has come for me to clear my reputation... by assaulting this young girl!
  • Satan is angry at Tee, as he thinks Tee caused Arle to think he caused all the trouble, but the moment Arle shows up, he immediately calms down.
    Arle: I want to apologize for earlier. I was really horrible to you.
    Satan: (Happily) What, THAT!? Psh! Don't sweat it!
  • Draco's moments while lost in the Constellation Zone in Chapter 5? Oh boy.
    • ...and then O shows up. Her reaction?
    • The premise behind 5-8. Lidelle shows up, also lost, and thinks she hallucinated Draco. Out of frustration, she does a Tetris trial to prove she's real.
      Draco Centauros: I am NOT a figment of your imagination!
      Lidelle: Aww, that's cute. My hallucination is trying to argue back.
  • To strengthen herself to be able to travel through space time, Arle is required to pick an opponent. The problem is...Schezo, Rulue, and Satan begin to argue on who gets to play against her. How do they settle it? ROCK PAPER SCISSORS. The result? Schezo wins and is Arle's opponent, and we get a jealous Satan.
    Arle: Why can't you all get along...!?
    Satan: Alright...prepare yourselves...Rock-Paper-Scissors GO!
  • As a Call-Back to 20th Anniversary, while Ringo is trying to imagine an opponent, she accidentally thinks of Yu and Rei. Her freakout is even bigger this time. Later, and thanks to being in a chamber where imaginations take physical forms, she asks Risukuma if she can dissect him.
  • After Satan and Ecolo save the day, Arle tells Satan how 'he's really made her happy.' Satan's reaction is amazing.
    (Japanese) Satan: An honest smile from Arle... (Ominously) Priceless...!
    (English) Satan: Now that I've seen her smile, I'll never wash these eyeballs ever again...!
  • Satan tells Ecolo not to be so needy when he wanted a bit more than just a smile from Ringo. Ecolo's response?
    Ecolo: (flatly) Um...really? Advice from you?
  • Chapter 8 is about Ringo throwing a talent show to help out her local shopping district. This leads to some very hilarious acts such as Suketoudara dancing with O (who has no known legs), Ess trying to figure out the mystery behind Risukuma, and a comedy act between Maguro and Tee.
    Maguro: Say, Tee, why'd the Tetrimino cross the road?
    Maguro: *buzz* 'Cause the sidewalk was...BLOCKED! *laugh*
    • Maguro wanting to do improv with Tee.
    • Witch and Draco put on an act together, apparently organized entirely by Witch. It's titled "The Beauty 'N the Beast!" The whole time, despite what Witch is saying, Draco is unaware that she is the titular beast.
    Witch: This savage beast actually breathes FIRE when you bonk it on the head!
    • And then when they all get Ringo to perform...
  • Chapter 9 is an entire chapter of funny thanks to it having Schezo as the protagonist. It involves him trying to ask for Sig's hand to discover its secrets. And with Schezo being Schezo, misunderstandings obviously happen:
    • Before the first match against Sig, Schezo insists him to show his hand:
      Sig: This guy's rubbing me the wrong way.
      Sig: What? Please... just don't.
    • After the match with Klug, Schezo demands to know why he doesn't want to tell where Sig went:
      Klug: Well, it's just... he was trying to get away from YOU. Are you bothering him?
      Schezo: Absolutely NOT! I just want to examine him all over.
      Klug: Ah, okay. (beat) Wait, WHAT!?
    • Before the match with Amitie, she tries to stall Schezo for time to Sig to flee:
      Amitie: You're a bad man!
      Schezo: Ha! Is that what you think? I just want to ask Sig for his hand.
      Amitie: Uhm... what? This guy's weird.
    • In the end, Schezo finally discovers the secret behind Sig's left hand. Said secret being that Sig uses his red hand to house a family of bugs. Schezo immediately calls his hunt off.
  • The third battle in Chapter 10 involves Ex accidentally eavesdropping on Satan's dreaming aloud a honeymoon with Arle on the Spaceship Tetra. As for Ex, his reaction uses a unique sprite, appropriate for the moment.
    Ex: *speechless* *speechless, continued*
  • Many Unsound Effects, including:
    • *Slightly-louder-than-average screaming*
    • *Screaming loud enough to be heard in the vast vacuum of space*
    • *Crowd-gone-wild cheer*
    • *Sobby-whine* and *whiny-sob*
    • *Speechless*
    • *Speechless, continued*
    • *Princely sigh*
    • *Princely cry*
    • *Robo-sigh*
    • *Thinking Sounds*
  • Some of the alternate voices are great. We get voices like Amitie acting ladylike (a la when she was hanging out with Ess, complete with the R-rolling!), Schezo sounding cutesy and happy, Satan sounding Campy with a voice akin to James of Team Rocket, Ecolo becoming a Motor Mouth (as if he needed it!), Ai sounding like Scooby-Doo, Sig sounding more enthusiastic than normal (in a cute, dorky kind of funny), Jay & Elle sounding like Creepy Twins, Ringo and Tee sounding about ten years younger, and O and Ex sounding downright PISSED.
    • As for Japan's alternate voices, some include Sig going full-on Pokémon Speak, Schezo sounding like a little kid, Ai being uncharacteristically robotic, and Zed sounds hilariously melodramatic.
  • Ringo's first reaction to Tetriminos.
    Ringo: Look! Some of them fell into a solid line. It's so pleasing on the eyes... OH MY GOSH, DID YOU SEE THAT!? THE SOLID LINE JUST DISAPPEARED!

    Puyo Puyo Chronicle 
  • Recruiting Schezo in this game is a particularly humorous chain of events. You find him in a treasure chest. Again. Just like Puyo BOX.

  • Meta example, the guy who wrote the details on the English Puyo Tetris website left a couple of tongue-in-cheek jokes:
    • In the Challenge page, the Sprint mode description says you "Gotta go fast to get a better time!".
    • On the Online page, the Replay section screenshot shows one replay, published by someone under the name of "Dr_Mean_Bean" .
  • In Puyo Box, Arle finds Schezo sleeping on a bridge with no easy way to get him off (serving as the roadblock until you clear the first boss). What does she do to clear the way? Scald him with hot tea. Schezo frantically hops around and throws himself into the river, never to be seen again... But in actuality, he's one of the penultimate bosses. And you fight him when he's only in his underwear because his clothes are hung to dry!
  • In the Light Novel Satan's Space Amusement Park, Arle, Amitie and Ringo are roped into a Beauty Contest with Draco and Witch for a stamp for their rally card. Everyone gets dressed up, but... are in outfits you wouldn't expect from a typical contest.
    • Amitie: Cosmetic Catastrophe.
    • Ringo: Maiko. In an attempt to highlight Japanese elegance.
    • Draco: Animal costume. And this is coming from someone that does this constantly.
    • Witch: Punk rock style. Complete with Chained by Fashion.
    • Arle: Nothing. She didn't dress up. She wins.
  • Madou Monogatari Saturn has Green Puyo as one of the first Random Encounters. One of its "attacks" involves summoning three more Green Puyo that drop on top of it in a stack. It promptly dies, because we all know what happens when four Puyo of similar color touch each other.
