Funny / Resident Evil 4

  • When you first rescue Luis in Chapter 1:
    Luis: ...Okay. I have one, very important question... do you got a smoke?
    Leon: (shrugs) ...I got gum...
  • The second special costume mode gives Ashley a full plate armor, whose helmet noisily closes as you aim at her. Have fun watching the enemies as they try to grab the girl and fall hopelessly to the ground due to her heavy armor. Or Leon himself whenever he has to catch her.
    • Developers' Foresight is in play, since she is literally invulnerable to everything the game can throw at her, and they took that into account with how she reacts to it all. Cue leaving Ashley at the mercy of powerful enemies as they whale on her over and over to no effect other than lots of amusing animations and pained squeals from her. Then pull out your special weapons and try those out on her; it takes a long, long time before any of this stops being funny.
  • The trophy for rescuing Ashley the first time?
    "Secure the Ballistics"
  • Checking the hanging meat in the kitchen during the Island Arc will prompt Leon to say he "could really use a big juicy steak right about now".
  • This:
    Salazar: I've sent my right hand to dispose of you.
    Leon: Your right hand comes off?
    • Made even better when you realize that, given all the weirdness Leon has seen, that IS a perfectly valid question.
    • The whole scene involving that is a sequence of funny moments.
      Salazar: (after dropping Leon into a death trap pit, listening into an earphone) Hmm...where is the satisfying sound of one's impalement?
      Leon: (hanging from his grappling wire) I won't fall for this old trick... (aims his pistol at the other end of the earphone)
    • The best part of it all, though, is that Salazar, a Smug Snake of the highest order this whole time, flat-out flips his lid after that.
  • Leon casually throwing his knife at Salazar, pinning his hand to a nearby column.
  • Another good one comes when Leon meets Luis, and he shows the Spaniard a picture of Ashley.
    Luis: Okay, let me guess. She's the President's daughter?
    Leon: That's too good for a guess. Wanna start explaining?
    Luis: *ominous voice* Psychic Powers.
    Leon: *looks like he might actually be considering it*
    Luis: Naah, I'm just kidding.
  • Using the PRL-412 on the Final Boss without charging it has amusing results.
  • Sometimes when Leon kills an enemy while escorting Ashley, she'll do a cute little fist pump in victory.
  • Jump off a ladder (without catching Ashley) and aim up at her, and she'll call you a pervert and cover up her skirt.
    • Probably unintentional on the designers' part, but if Leon gets knocked on his back by an enemy near Ashley and happens to be positioned right, she'll similarly react as if he's trying to look up her skirt. It's hysterical to hear Ashley chastising Leon for being a pervert while he's getting his brains bashed in!
  • In the original Gamecube version, there is a bug that allows Ashley to Suplex certain enemies if you quickly press A after stunning them by opening a door in their face. It's pretty hilarious AND can make that part of the game easier.
  • A moment of unintended hilarity can happen with Luis if you're wearing Leon's first alternate costume:
    Luis: You a cop?
    (looks at Leon wearing his Raccoon Police Department outfit)
    Luis: Nah, you don't look the type.
  • In the island military base, there's an oven containing a Ganado. Most first-time players won't know what to do (and take double-damage if the fan-nicknamed "Oven Man" grabs them), but those expecting should step back immediately as soon as Oven Man bursts through. He dies of his own burns shortly. Even Leon himself wonders what the hell was up with that.
  • Every time a Ganado blows himself up with his own dynamite like he's friggin' Wily E. Coyote.
  • Always fun to watch a Ganado climb up a ladder, only to kick it down the moment he gets to the top. And then watching them setting the ladder back up and trying again.
  • In a amusing easter egg, if you shoot at fish in the lake just before the fight with the lake monster, it bursts out of the water and eats you.
  • Ada barely manages to avoid being a ritual sacrifice by the Ganados, and only gets a cut on her thigh. However, this is enough for her to shoot a Death Glare at the Ganado who did it, who (despite being Brainwashed and Crazy) is visibly taken aback by it.
  • The fact that one of the Ganados steals Leon's jacket. Even Ada is bewildered when she examines the Ganado wearing it. That was a nice jacket.
  • The Laser-Guided Karma punishment for shooting Luis multiple times. On the last bullet, the game stops, and plays a cutscene where Luis yells "Adios, Leon!" and nails him with two bullets from his own gun.
  • Playing as Leon you get a few humorous comments if you look at items. Playing as Ada? It's dialed up to Aya Brea levels.
    On finding the officer in the village: "Is this what passes for police work these days?"
  • Ada: "The bulldozer is broken. Must be Leon's handiwork."
  • Ashley's reaction after Leon matter-of-factly says they have to leave before the island blows up:
    It's gonna WHAT?!
  • Even the credits gets one. After the Capcom logo shows up, it shows a message that the copyright of the game is help by the Raccoon Police Department and that anyone violating it would be prosecuted by S.T.A.R.S members. And then some.
  • Upon reaching Saddler's throne room a interaction "?" appears. Use it and Leon will actually use the chair and lounge around doing a Slouch of Villainy.
  • After knocking Ashley back Leon tries hitting on Hunnigan, who reminds him that he's still on duty. She smirks as he says this gem.
  • Leon's habit of screwing physics up the ass shows on the island prison where he and Ashley try to escape down a garbage chute.
    Ashley: Ugh, it stinks...
    Leon: Sure does. *smiles innocently*
    Ashley: No way Leon.
    Leon: Way. *grabs a screaming Ashley and jumps off*
    Ashley: Are you out of your mind?
    Leon: I knew you'd be fine if you landed on your butt.
  • Luis's commentary during the siege (it's even his bottlecap quote!):
    Did you send those invitations? I told you, no more than fifty people!
  • In a VERY dark example, when Leon starts coughing in the mines and Ada comes out of nowhere to ask if he's ok, he regains his composure, fixes his eyes on Ada and starts approaching slowly. Ada thus far has something resembling a faint smile on her face and looks excited, and as Leon is about to reach her, she raises her left hand as if to touch him. For all intents and purposes, it seems Ada thinks Leon's going to kiss her. Cue Ada's VERY surprised reaction at Leon suddenly trying to strangle her, sporting red eyes typical of las plagas and a Creepy smile. Ada escapes the situation and Leon regains his mind, but one has to wonder why Ada thought he would kiss her when seconds before he was writhing in pain from the Plaga's infection.
    • For all her suave demeanor, Ada holds Leon in very high steem. May be the only person in the franchise she would lower her defenses for. It is still hilarious to notice she was expecting some sugar.
