Funny / Survival of the Fittest

Think it's hard to laugh at terrorists forcing teenagers to kill each other? Think again.
  • Gabrielle Minase's death post being a simple "And then Gabrielle died of AIDS." This however was retconned by him being accidentally shot by Daisuke. This was also parodied in future versions.
  • The terrorists Kaige, McLocke, and Rice read a Fan Fic of contestants Jacob Starr and Uriel out loud. While the mic to the island was turned on.




  • The death of Tessa Blackridge, who challenges the Grim Reaper to a game of Go Fish. Said Grim Reaper bears more than a passing resemblance to the one from Discworld.
  • From V5 endgame: Amaranta Montalvo is the last surviving student. When terrorists Sonia Nguyen and Cecily Lacoste come to pick her up, Cecily insults Mara. How does Mara respond? By planting a big kiss on Cecily's face.

  • In a very Black Humor sort of way, Astrid Tate attempting to shoot Penelope Fitzgerald after the latter gives her a "The Reason You Suck" Speech for planning to kill. Penelope demands that Astrid kill her if she's so determined to play, and Astrid attempts to do so, complete with a one-liner about how We Used to Be Friends... only for the both of them to discover that the gun is fake when Astrid pulls the trigger. Penelope is understandably not pleased.
  • The death of Jerry Fury, who initiates a confrontation with one of his allies and then unceremoniously gets run over by another student driving a salvaged Jeep, in an almost literal Shocking Swerve.
  • Noah Whitley's entire story both before the game and during the game could be said to be one of these, with a constant drip feed of good humor even during more serious moments. Even his death manages to get one last good joke in, with his drag queen persona mentioning being "out of a job". The aftermath of his story, however, is definitely not one of these.
  • The pregame thread My Friends Are Assholes, just on premise alone. It starts with Darius Van Dyke gathering a group of students to find out who stole his Nintendo 3DS at a party. Said group includes Fiyori Senay, Jeremy Frasier, Bradley Floyd, and Caedyn Miller. With Darius' own mentality, this goes about as well as you'd expect. The entire thing is so absurd and humorous. In case you're wondering, Fiyori took it. It's even referenced later when she finds Darius' corpse.

  • From "Big Mike" Gibraltar's death in Virtua. One of his last actions is attacking Brian Larke with a cake. His last thought before expiring?
    When I get to Heaven, I am so telling Anton that I threw a cake at Brian.
  • The first version of SOTF-TV brings us Jonas Jeffries' first thread. Immediately upon stumbling upon a group of people, he starts waving around his assigned gun and screaming "I'm from Detroit, I know how to use this!" It should be mentioned that Jonas did not know how to use said gun and was about as far from intimidating as possible.
  • A good portion of the mentors in SOTF-TV can provide these, mostly of the disturbingly hilarious Mood Whiplash variety. Examples include Wilson Howard asking his team to advertise Verizon, Susan Crawford being an ill-spoken anti-SOTF protester (with everything that implies), and an comedian who uses Alter-Ego Acting (similar to Stephen Colbert) who spends it entirely in-character. Another good example:
    Shannon Gant : (upon seeing that Taylor DeVasher is knocking down postcard racks) "Wait-wait-wait, did that kid just- Holy shit he actually did! STOP TRASHING MY RESORT YOU FUCK. KICK HIS ASS VINCENT!"
    • Caeser Knight in TV2 is one of the less helpful mentors but he certainly makes an impression. In his one and only message to each of his team members, he offers nothing useful and no moral support besides telling each individual that they're his favorite, including two teammates who are currently in the same room and telling them not to tell each other, and not checking in with one guy until just after he's died.
  • The original death post of Jerry Aarons in Program V1, a Call-Back to the moment mentioned in the V1 section of the page: "And then Jerry died of blades." It has since been edited into a full, more serious post, but the original is fondly remembered.
