Funny / Serious Sam

Serious Sam: The First and Second Encounter

Serious Sam II

  • The summoning of Kwongo.
    Simba Witchdoctor: I will summon Kwongo now!
    [Witchdoctor beats on a drum... and completely fails to summon Kwongo.]
    Simba Witchdoctor: Hmmm... I'll have to try something completely different.
    [Witchdoctor busts out a DJ set and starts jamming out.]
  • Not to mention what happens after the boss battle. What do you do with a gorilla corpse the size of a football field? Roast it on a spit.
  • How Sam uses the Elvian cannons in II, literally just lying on top of one of them and clinging to it for dear life. It's a mystery how he even fires it!
  • Sam winning the trust of the Elvian people in II and heroically walking off to go fight Cecil the Dragon... only to trip and fall face-first into the camera, breaking it.
  • Coast 2 Cost in II can head to several moments of hilarity, as the AI on the jet enemies aren't the best at flying in tight spaces, which can lead to them regularly smashing into walls and exploding all on their own.
  • After fighting his way through Kingsburg, Sam descends into the sewers by ragdolling his way down a manhole and hitting every pipe and piece of metal grating on the way down.

Serious Sam 3: BFE

  • This line from the BFE trailer, which may double an Awesome Moment:
    Sam: It's not over until I teabag every last one of you alien motherfuckers.
  • In BFE, the entire cutscene of Sam blowing up the Sphinx and his ensuing argument with Quinn is one big Crowning Moment of Funny.
  • This scene from BFE:
    Sam kills the Headless Kamikaze
    Sam: AAAAAAAAAAH— put a sock in it.
    Hordes of Headless Kamikazes approach
    Sam: Uh oh.
    • This is a callback to a similar scene from The First Encounter, with the only change being Sam's one-liner to the first Kamikaze. "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH yourself!"
  • Also from BFE, there's the cutscene where Sam locates Professor Stein's phone next to his severed arm. Quinn had been calling, and when Sam responds, telling her that Stein is dead, she asks if he found his phone.
    Sam: You mean the phone you just called??
    Quinn: Uh... right.
  • "Jesus Harold Faltermeyer Christ!"
  • The Final Boss fight of BFE, with Sam walking in on Ugh-Zan IV throwing down with the Sand Whale that had been chasing him.
    Sam: You guys having an ugly contest? I'll make it easy for you, you both win!
    • And shortly thereafter, in a call with Mental's daughter as Sam threatens to kill Mental:
    Mental's Daughter: Are you serious?
    Sam: Why yes, as a matter of fact I am.
    • And then they manage to turn the destruction of the Earth into a mooning joke.
  • And one line from the "Jewel of the Nile" DLC.
