Funny: Rune Factory 4

  • The dub team of Rune Factory 4 were clearly having far too much fun with the license quizzes. The answers are easy enough when you're familiar with the games (and fairly self-explanatory even if you're not), but choosing the right answer becomes much more difficult when the wrong answers are so much funnier...
    • From the EZ Cooking exam:
    If your cooking skill is lower than the difficulty level of the dish...
    (a) You need more RP.
    (b) You can't make it.
    If you succeed in making difficult dishes, your Cooking Skill will gain...
    (a) More Exp.
    (b) No Exp.
  • Similar to the above, Leon will ask if you're a decent cook. You can say that you once killed a man.
  • Doug's plan for world peace: Clone Amber. Many times. It conjures up funny and heartwarming images:
    "...if there were a billion Ambers, war would never happen. All the Ambers would just chill and drink juice."
  • A wide number of Dylas's shy lines, particularly the ones where he doesn't catch himself in time.
    Dylas: I've been waiting for you... wait-no I haven't!
  • The guys are chatting about ideas for festivals. Dylas' contribution..?
    "I'd happily take part in a Beat Doug Senseless festival."
  • The revelation that pretty much everyone in the town was hiding in Porcoline's restaurant to eavesdrop on Dylas proposing to Frey. Doug charges in out of nowhere and tackle hugs him before Dylas even has a chance to put the ring on her.
  • Dylas is pretty much The Comically Serious. While he doesn't actively tell many jokes, he ends up in funny situations regardless.
    • Arthur tries to put glasses on him at least once. While you are (sadly) not given a visual, the thought of it is quite funny.
    • On days where the weather is Runeys, he'll wonder if they're edible. Apparently Porco is rubbing off on him.
    • Wearing a swimsuit is apparently a big deal, but it has nothing to do with splashing in the water:
      Frey: Aren't you going swimming, Dylas?
      Dylas: Hmph. I'm no kid. Why should I romp around like one?
      Dylas: N-not for that dumb a reason! See, I, uh... I'm wearing a swimsuit!
    • Likewise, him challenging Doug to a swimming contest if Frey asks who's faster. Especially notable in that he will yell at Doug no matter where he is on the map - Doug could be across town working in the shop, eating at Porco's, or taking a nap upstairs, and Dylas still wants a duel right this minute.
    • Most anything to do with him dating Frey:
      • He tries to tell Frey he loves her and does a Last-Second Word Swap to shout about how great the weather is today; Frey thinks he's lost it. He manages to tell her the next day, and starts crying with joy if she says she loves him, too.
      • Frey asks if he loves her or fishing more, and he just sits there thinking about how he needs to answer quickly but it's already too late for that.
    • In a scene where you talk to Doug, he produces a carrot. Dylas is confused, so Doug just offers it to the PC. You have the option to swing it around, and if you swing it Dylas appears on screen. Another option to swing it around, up or down, Dylas' character image follows it.
  • Any time Leon gets to messing with people, or commenting on the daily habits of everyone around him. Doug is apparently quite noisy and funny, and if you tell him that, he gets even noisier and funnier.
  • Porcoline generates a good number of funnies. One town event had him and the protagonist on a 'date' to Yokmir Forest. There, he shows a bit of his Hidden Depths while talking about his family (Margaret, Arthur, and Dylas). It was a bit heartwarming, at least until the Mood Whiplash kicks in and he proposed to the protagonist again. All response options provided are all about shooting his proposal down.
  • Upon asking Margaret what a Serenade is. .
    Margaret: E..err..Oh! Look Behind You! A Wooly doing a Leekspin!
    Lest: Huh?! Where??
  • After unlocking the Furniture Store, answer "Many" to the clerk's question of whether you have a lover or not.
  • The dialogue with Porcoline if you tell him you love him. He'll tell you that you're off to your wondrous wedding, and the screen will fade to white, as though it's about to go to a cutscene; it lasts just long enough for the unwary player to think, "Wait, what?" before fading back in, with Porcoline saying he was just joking, and he thinks he gave you the wrong idea.
  • Every baby-talk scene is pure gold, but Vishnal's reaction when Frey catches him is just perfect:
    Vishnal: (with Fireball Eyeballs) I love you!
    Frey: (shocked) Nice save!
  • A random conversation with Bado.
    Bado: Can you think of a fast way for me to make money?
    (a) Work.
    (b) Work!
    (c) WORK, DAMMIT!
  • Upon booting up the game, a random character will read out the title. Dolce's version is a bit special:
    "Rune Factory... but which one? I'm not telling."
  • When following Pico to Obsidian Mansion the protagonist comes across a large gorge. Volkanon proceeds to fix this problem by practically flying across the gorge and building a bridge out of thin air. The possible responses are:
    (a) Wow, that's amazing!
    (b) ...
    (c) What are you?!
    Volkanon: I am but a simple butler. No more, no less.
  • Some of the conversations and mini-events are not gender exclusive, which, due to the romantic nature of some of them, can lead to hilarious exchanges, one in particular where Dylas saves you from a playboy who's hitting on you, a boy, and when you thank him reacts in typical tsundere fashion and then runs off.
    • One non-gender-exclusive event has the player lead Dylas around town so he can practice smiling at people. Several of the townsfolk will assume you're dating, no matter your gender.
  • Doug's proposal event has Frey walk in on him practicing his proposal with Dylas. As if that weren't enough, Dylas actually seems to be imitating Frey for it.
    • Later on Frey has this exchange with Margaret:
      Margaret: Funnily enough, when I mentioned Doug's name [to Dylas], he blushed beet red.
      Frey: R-really? Do you think they're actually... um...
      Margaret: Oh my...
  • If you're on a date with Leon and you choose to pet his head, the results are...quite hilarious. It's like getting revenge for all the times he ruffled your hair, complete with Leon begging you to stop because petting his head seems to imply that you're probably petting him the way one would pet any furry animal: behind their (fluffy and cute) ears.
