Funny: TV Tropes Examples

    Examples (trope pages) 
  • I couldn't help but roll in laughter and the second entry...of this, on A Boy and His X
    * Digimon, Pokémon, Monster Rancher and a slew of others make up A Boy and His Mons.
  • The Lockon/Tieria entry on the anime Ho Yay page.
    • Also, from that same page:
    First season of the anime is in the can, and I just have to say, 07-Ghost has the highest Ho Yay density of any non-porny show I have EVER SEEN. It's "Over Nine Thousaaaaand!"
  • On the All Animation Is Disney page, when one of the users comment on how the infamous Ella Enchanted movie was mistaken for a Disney film. After stating the company, he/she stated that it will also make Kill Bill a Disney movie as well.
  • This from the Real Life section of the Gone Horribly Wrong page:
    * TV Tropes! This was supposed to be a repository for medical information so doctors could cure any disease in the world, and now look at it!
    ** It was worth it.
    *** We did what we had to do.
  • Go to I Thought It Meant and look up Light Is Not Good. Go on, we'll wait...
  • Another from this very wiki: hit Paranoia Fuel and read the byplay about the 'facehuggers' from Alien.
    • It's gone now. This troper is sad.
  • The Break the Haughty entry on Jool from Farscape once had a typo that made this troper nearly collapse:
    ...having to slog through a waist high swamp of incest feces.
  • The following entry on the Hard Gay page:
    * MANnosuke from Touhou fanon.
    "Why LOOK at ARMPITS when you can LOOK at MANPITS!"
    "Who needs FANservice when you can have MANservice!"
    ** Geez, that sounds like a Powerthirst ad...
  • Found on Ax-Crazy:
    Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter, a Complete Monster whose love of Cold-Blooded Torture exceeds even Voldemort's. In fact, there are numerous occasions where Voldemort decides he has to stop Bellatrix from killing anyone (admittedly because killing them would ruin some plan of his, rather than out of any actual mercy, but even so...)
    Oh, sure. 'Cause only Voldie can hold her back, right?
  • From the Sissy Villain page:
    * Cobra Commander of G.I. Joe, often described as a "faceless effeminate screechy man." Where other villains go into rages, Cobra Commander throws hissy fits.
    ** Hell, his threat level seems to be based on how deep his voice is.
  • The film section for the Narm page has this to say about Titanic:
    ** Two words: Billy. Zane. His performance is a special kind of genius — the unintentional kind. In one scene, Cal starts shooting at Jack and Rose as the ship is sinking. As one critic put it, "Oh no! I hope he doesn't shoot them! They might drown!"
  • From the Man, I Feel Like a Woman page:
    Keiichi from Ah! My Goddess went through the transformation in an episode where he was working with Urd's potion ingredients. He checks his new... bumpers in the trope-specified way, then discovers he is still male from the waist down... and his lower half is pretty excited about the additions on the upper floors.
  • Most of the stuff on the Literature section for Narm. Especially...
    * "Sucks to your ass-mar!" from Lord of the Flies.
    ** Quite a bit of ''Lord of the Flies' is rendered Narmful because some of the descriptions sound suspiciously sexual. Freud Was Right!
    *** A bunch of boys naked on an island saying things like "sucks to your ass-mar". What do you mean, it's not homoerotic?
  • Soundtrack Dissonance page FTW:
    Asuka: Shinji, you suck.
    Shinji: Yeah? Well, let's see how you feel after I strangle you. Cue the light, happy jazz-pop!
    Toastyfrog's End of Evangelion: Thumbnail Theatre
  • A lot of the stuff on the Dub Text page. Here are a few notable instances:
    ** Sailor Moon: The dub also accidentally created the Unusual Euphemism "talented" for "breast size". The characters were trying out for the play Snow White and Makoto says she should be chosen because of her breasts. The dub version had her refer to her being the most talented instead, but didn't edit the gesture that made it abundantly clear what Lita (dub name for Makoto) meant by talented.
    *** Makoto is indeed... talented.
    *** Some food for thought: A talent is roughly 60 lbs., or 27 kg.31 (Babylonian Mesopotamian), and 33kg (Roman) to Hebrew measurements with the New Testament Jewish weight of 60kg! So you get a variance of 26-60kg or 57-133lbs! Now the real questions becomes "Is that how each one weighs individually?") Real Life example: Gigantomastia!
    *** While she is talented, she's NOT THAT (ahem) talented.
    ** Then there was the scene where the villain Mimete's bare leg is bopping up and down from off screen which pans to reveal that she's... playing twister. In the dub this scene is even saucier as Mimete's voice actress makes all sorts of sultry moans during it.
    ** Neflyte's reaction upon seeing Sailor Moon transform for the first time:
    Neflyte: "I watched while you changed. It was fascinating."
  • fixed the following example so that the link still works
  • From Yaoi Fangirl: Haruna Saotome in Mahou Sensei Negima!. At the start of chapter 183, she even drags Negi to a convention with her. Of course, he is too innocent to realize what he's picking up.
    Negi: What's this? This man is naked and...
    Haruna: It's kind of hard to get regular people to understand our hobbies. Right Chisame-san?
    Chisame: Then don't friggin' bring 'em-!!
  • This entry under Bears Are Bad News:
    * A group of armed militants in Kashmir stopped to have some pudding in a cave hideway...shared by a bear. The bear killed two and severely injured a third.
    * To clarify, the cave was shared, not the pudding.
    * Note: This may be why the bear attacked.
  • This entry concerning "Earthshock" on Take That, Scrappy!:
    ** In an extra on the DVD version of "Earthshock", Adric survives the spaceship crash, lands on prehistoric Earth... and is promptly eaten by a Tyrannosaurus. A detatched Cyberman head remarks, "Excellent".
    *** ...suuuuuuuure.
  • Found on Yaoi Fangirl:
    Internet example: If yaoi fangirls were dragonflies, this site (the Kingdom Hearts section in particular) would be a summer pond the size of Texas.
  • Found on Would Hit a Girl, the obligatory Warhammer40000 example :
    Anyone engaging in Close Combat with the Sisters of Battle in Warhammer 40,000.
    Blessed Emperor, why must that instantly inspire terrible period jokes?
  • This, from the Unstoppable Rage page:
    * Neon Genesis Evangelion. Long story short, do not get the Humongous Mecha mad at you. Ever.
    ** Because it will EAT you, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.
  • On the Dark Is Not Evil page, in the Real Life section:
    Black Pope is not a new movie starring Martin Lawernce.
  • On the Scenery Censor page, discussing the pilot for Firefly, the Pot Holes:
    * An interesting variation of this pops up in the pilot when River climbs out of the box. Though you don't see anything from the first few shots, the camera then switches to a far-off, wide-angle shot of the entire bay that shows River very clearly, in which nothing is covering her up, but the camera is so far off that you can't see anything distinct about her.
  • The beautiful nature of this Reality Subtext example cannot be denied:
    * Supposedly Rachel Green's pregnancy was written into the plot of Friends because Jennifer Aniston expressed her plan to start a family with Brad Pitt.
    ** The same Joey's broken arm in another episode.
  • This is probably the best thing on the Beam Me Up, Scotty!:
    * "The only traditions of the Royal Navy are rum, sodomy and the lash." — Sir Winston Churchill never said this; his personal secretary, Anthony Montague-Browne, said that although Churchill did not say this, he wished he had.
    ** Note that the British Navy abolished the practice of flogging in 1948, and that rum rations were discontinued in 1970. The modern navy runs on sodomy, and sodomy alone.
  • This bit from Nostalgia Ain't Like It Used to Be:
    * Almost ubiquitous in the message of political "culture warriors"; apparently, all the evils of the world came to America along with the Beatles.
    ** The Fab Four Horsemen of the Applepocalypse!
  • From Misplaced Nationalism:
    To a non-American, a Yankee is an American. To an American, a Yankee is a Northerner. To a Northerner, a Yankee is a Northeasterner. To a Northeasterner, a Yankee is a New Englander. To a New Englander, a Yankee is a Vermonter. To a Vermonter, a Yankee is someone who has pie for breakfast.
  • The title of For the Evulz, as well as some of the stuff on the page. The following probably takes the cake:
    * The Wizard of Oz: The Wicked Witch of the West, opening the door to severe Leather Petticoating.
    ** Hey, bitch stole her shoes - that shit don't fly in the merry old land of Oz.
  • This gem from No Such Thing as Space Jesus:
    * Averted in the Cthulhu Mythos. While the Great Old Ones and the Outer Gods are "merely" immensely powerful extradimensional entities, they are often referred as gods and worshipped by various cults (after all, what else do you call something like Yog-Sothoth, who is eternal, omniscient and pretty much all-powerful, not to mention completely unbound by our 4-dimensional universe?).
    ** To his face, probably something like "AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRR MY BRAIN HURTS".
  • From the Disposable Love Interest page, this "explanation" for why Batman has a different girlfriend in every movie:
    Every Batman movie has a new girl for the Batmeister who will only get mentioned if she's lucky. Catwoman probably eats them.
  • From the "Better Than It Sounds: Video Games N-Z" page: The Sims 2: The same group of people's descendants are placed into the hands of the same god, who now can bring fates worse than the plagues of egypt upon them. Death itself occasionally ignores their corpse and watches their telly''.
  • This bit of Stealth Parody from Five-Token Band:
    The Land Before Time is notable (and was quite controversial at the time) for being the first major franchise to feature a cast comprised of five different dinosaur species: Littlefoot, an Apatosaurus; Cera, a Triceratops; Ducky, a Saurolophus; Petrie, a Pteradon; and Spike, a Stegosaurus. In fact, even though the films consistently establish "Longnecks" as the most important characters, and even despite the embarrassingly stereotypical speech patterns and muteness of Petrie and Spike, respectively, credit really must be given for the portrayal of the different species existing in relative equality and harmony. Complaints continue to issue forth, however, from various "Three-Horn" advocacy groups, who insist that Triceratops are not the loud-mouthed, opinionated trouble-makers portrayed in the films, and that they do not disagree with everything everybody says.
  • The old description of Henry Kissinger on the Kavorka Man page. Mainly the last sentences.
  • From the Crotch Grab Sex Check page:
    * Metal Gear Solid 2: The president is a friendly guy. So friendly, in fact, that upon meeting bishounen hero Raiden, he decides to greet Raiden with a friendly cup check to make sure he's not a chick.
    ** An extremely elongated, gentle cup check. You know you've been playing Metal Gear too long when things like that stop seeming strange.
    ** The above picture is a fan's version of this very scene.
  • The Noodle People page's description of the Na'vi:
    They're basically 12-foot-tall, hairless, blue, bipedal lemurs.
  • This little bit from the Real Life folder of Inconvenient Itch:
    * Yeast infections: proof that God is real and a sadist.
  • This exchange on Eats Babies:
    In the Hellsing television series, it appears as though Incognito enjoys stewed babies. Possibly; it is a little hard to tell what exactly he's eating there, but it sure looks like stewed babies.
    Wait, how do you know what stewed babies look li- ohhh...
  • From the New Media Are Evil page:
    * CSI: Miami had an episode ("Cyber-lebrity") where a girl's entire life seems ruined because of a photo (not even showing nudity) of her posted on the Internet. To the point where people are trying to kill her. Then they go after Horatio, uncovering confidential information within minutes, because It's a Small Net After All. And Flashmobs show up with a speed and fanatical interest over said girl that, in real life, wouldn't happen if Britney Spears was french-kissing Lindsay Lohan buck naked on top of a circus trapeze in the middle of Times Square with dancing leprechauns doing the macarena in time to music supplied by the Rolling Stones. At noon on a weekday.
  • From the Once More with Clarity page:
    The Prestige had a montage near the end that revealed—ahem—that would be telling, and a magician never tells his secrets.
  • Following the links between I Like Swords, Welcome to Corneria and 8-Bit Theater (which named those tropes). Each page links to or ends with or incorporates the others, or puts them on the page image or in the page quote until you go in an I-like-swords-welcome-to-Corneria-loop FOREVER. It's like linkception.
  • From Apathy Killed the Cat:
    A trope is you! Do you know how your computer works? You might know it involves ones and zeros, maybe some HTML and Java, but that's it.
    Averted! The majority who use computers are curious enough to gather a lay understanding, but believe it or not, just like automotive mechanics and the physics of the combustion engine, knowing the details are not crucial to your survival! Not knowing won't kill any cats.
    Unless you get captured and interrogated by a Serial Killer who really, really likes computers and really, really hates cats.
  • This bit for Willow's glorious, marvelous, wonderful example of Flaying Alive in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
    Fan Nickname: Willow the Vampire Flayer.
    • The troper in question deserves a date with her for that one.
  • From the Misaimed Marketing page:
    A Golgo 13 kewpie. A GODDAMN GOLGO 13 KEWPIE. A GOLGO, THE DEADLIEST ASSASSIN IN THE WORLD. KEWPIE. Not that the Devilman and Sirene kewpies are any less insane, but c'mon.
  • From the Beat Still, My Heart page:
    * This, along with many other horrifically violent happenings, occurs in the first 10 minutes of the anime, Elfen Lied.
    ** Anybody else notice where it landed? Granted, it had no actual force of impact, and so it probably didn't physically hurt the unlucky target, but smart money says that guard couldn't get it up again for weeks.
  • Found on the Ambiguously Gay page under Code Geass:
    ** Not to mention Kanon himself, who is quite pretty and expresses more concern for Schneizel than an advisor should for a boss. Side materials state that he's a crossdresser who had a hard time getting a job until Schneizel hired him for his talents and didn't mind his peculiar tastes.
  • From the Monochrome Casting page:
    Dawson's Creek. No black people, even in the Boston episodes.
    Except the High School principal and his daughter, played by black actors.
    They had black people being portrayed by black actors? Will wonders never cease.
  • Here is one from the Dirty Cop page:
    Roger from American Dad! turns into a dirty cop when he joins the police force in one episode... about three hours after joining, no less.
    Took him that long?
  • This gem from the Walking Shirtless Scene page:
    * Apparently Aladdin couldn't afford buttons for his vest. Or a shirt.
    ** Or nipples.
    ** He can't afford anything:
    I steal only what I can't afford
    That's everything!
    ** Are you saying Aladdin stole his nipples?
  • Most of the stuff in the Wall Banger pages, just because of how some of it's worded. For example, consider the following from the films section:
    WALL•E: A sudden, huge wallbang moment that nearly got this troper kicked out of the theater. In the final bits of the movie, a spaceship generating its own artificial gravity IS SHOWN TO TIP TO THE SIDE BECAUSE EVERYONE MOVED TO THAT SIDE. Like a boat on the sea. Despite the fact that they were in a vacuum. Because that's how gravity works in deep space. Seriously. My brain tried to crawl out and cry in the bathroom.
  • From the Dull Surprise page:
    * In the Twilight film, Bella certainly has a collection of such emotions.
    ** Why don't her eyebrows move? WHY DON'T HER EYEBROWS MOVE?!
    ** Is... Is she actually acting? Or is she just really queasy all the time?
    *** From what I understand, both main actors hate the series now, but only an idiot would turn down the biggest movie role since Harry Potter. So, in short, the latter.
    *** Robert Pattinson actually preferred doing more obscure movies before Harry Potter. That was, arguably, one of his first big roles. He had no idea what he was getting himself into with Twilight.
    *** A chance to kiss Kristen Stewart and a shit load of money?
    *** Having no choice but to kiss Kristen Stewart and still not enough money to make it worth it.
  • From the Purity Sue page under Smallville:
    ** Which turned out be the case. To top it all off, she marks her departure from the show by becoming a God-Mode Sue with powers equal to Clark's. Suetiful to the last.
    *** Not just equal, but she also radiates Kryptonite. Making her the most lethal person in the entire world to Clark. Yes folks, that is right, Lana Lang is now the one person in the entire world, who if the circumstances made it so, could slaughter pre-Superman in a fight. If you'll excuse me, there's a wall that my cranium has an appointment with.
  • This enigma from Trope Names for a Band (under Dronejam):
    Is it even possible for a band to be better than they sound?
  • From Beat Still, My Heart:
    * This, along with many other horrifically violent happenings, occurs in the first 10 minutes of the anime, Elfen Lied.
    ** Anybody else notice where it landed? Granted, it had no actual force of impact, and so it probably didn't physically hurt the unlucky target, but smart money says that guard couldn't get it up again for weeks.
  • The entire Crack Pairing page is friggin' hilarious, but this bit from the Harry Potter section is absolutely fantastic:
    ** Just for the sake of curiosity, are there any Dobby/Grawp fics out there?
    *** Unfortunately, yes. (NSFW link)
    • And to make it even better, that's in the middle of the section — the search for a pairing not yet thought of in the Harry Potter fandom continues (in utter vain).
  • From Eyes Do Not Belong There:
    * Nobody mentioned Fullmetal Alchemist? Several of the Homunculi qualify for this. The manga version of Envy turns into a monster-thing with screaming faces randomly scattered across its body. Pride has a Living Shadow full of eyes. And mouths. And he's based on Father's original form, a blob of shadow with a single eye and mouth; Father eventually turns into a walking, eye- and mouth-covered man made of shadows. He doesn't even bother to form a normal face, having a single enormous eye and a too-wide mouth where his head would be. Yeesh.
    ** So he/they are living eyeshadow?
  • Some of the examples on "The Reason You Suck" Speech page are really funny.
  • The following from the Dramatic Unmask page:
    * The Phantom of the Opera, especially the silent film.
    ** Although, in the most recent film adaptation, many people found the unmasking during "The Point of No Return" more Narm than drama.
    *** IT'S TERRIBLE, HE HAS A BAD SUNBURN! Christine, run!
  • From the All There Is to Know About "The Crying Game" page:
    That's it. I can't keep it a secret any longer. Count Dracula is a vampire, an undead creature from folklore that drinks the blood of the living.
  • From the Video Games section of Heterosexual Life-Partners:
    The countries Canada and USA in eRepublik have a treaty that says they will "never give up on each other, never let each other down, and never run around or desert one another."
    ...did I just get rick rolled by a treaty?
  • From the Fridge Horror page:
    * One Pizza Hut commercial had Miss Piggy cheerfully biting into a slice of pepperoni.
    ** Or ordering the Grand Slam at Denny's, which is served with sausage or bacon.
    ** To be fair, Miss Piggy is made out of felt.
    *** To be fair, so is the food at Denny's.
    *** Oh snap.
  • I keep going back to Signature Style to read THIS, which never stops being funny:
    C-Could it be? The — the Super Smash Bros. Brawl daily site updates!! Oh! Masahiro Sakurai, the game's master of ceremonies, writes in a heartwarming, dramatic, mildly awkward style, clearly dragged from another language — rumour has it that it might be the fault of the localisers. Could that be...ambiguity? And then there's lots! Of! Strange punctuation? And! Onomatopoeia! Whaaaaaaaaaah!! (laughs)
  • Surprisingly enough, there's one on the Hell Is That Noise page:
    ** For that matter, anything Tom Waits says or sings, ever. The man could ask you to pass the salt and make it sound like a funeral dirge.
    * Ever boil a lobster live before? They shriek. Loudly. As they die. In front of you. On your stove.
    ** You're boiling things alive and your main concern is that they won't die quietly?
  • This glorious little example from the Is It Something You Eat? page:
    Humanity runs on this. How many foods are created by letting something spoil under specific conditions? Pickles, cheese, salami, beer, butter, etc. Basically, the invention of new food goes something like this:
    Step 1: Store something.
    Step 2: X in my Y! It's more likely than you think.
    Step 3: This stuff doesn't smell that bad. It's still good. Om nom nom nom.
    Step 4: This is delicious... I'm a genius!
    Step 5: ???
    Step 6: Profit!
  • From Orgasmic Combat:
    * Tsukuyomi. Seriously, you could take the dialogue from the fight scene with Setsuna and replace it with porn and no one would know the difference.
  • The Bowdlerise page has this little gem in the form of the responses from two tropers to the entry mentioning that Terry Pratchett cancelled plans for a movie of the Discworld story Mort when the producers gave him a real Wall Banger of a request:
    ** That makes me die a little inside.
    *** Right this way, then.
  • From False Reassurance:
    Hang on, hang on. Lancelot came in to rescue her, had sex with her and then left without rescuing her? What a dick!
  • This gem from the Tropers Do It Without Notability page:
  • Head to TV Tropes Wiki Drinking Game and Ctrl+ F "egregious".
    We apologize that "egregious" now no longer looks like a word.
  • Also, at the Moral Event Horizon page, it's typed that one of Grand Moff Tarkin's Moral Event Horizons was giving the males of a whole race to the Stormtroopers for live target practice. It used to be written under that:
  • From Eating the Eye Candy:
    Take a sip for every mention Bella from Twilight makes of Edward's Supernatural Gold Eyes, marble skin that sparkles in the sunlight, or his overall beauty being comparable to an angel's. You'll be under the table in no time. Twilight: Causing liver failure worldwide!
  • This exchange from the Deus ex Machina page:
    "From Chamber of Secrets", we have the magical car that saves Harry and Ron from the spiders just in time. True, it was in the Forbidden Forest, but that was months ago. The chances of it coming just in time is blatantly impossible, and there's the fact that it would have run out of gas and oil a long time ago."
    "You're worrying about oil pressure in the MAGIC, FLYING CAR?!"
  • Best Known for the Fanservice gives us this:
    * What are the two things everyone remembers about Power Girl?
    ** Her cynical sense of humor and tragic backstory about trying to find her true past?
    *** -Ahem- What are the two big, round, firm, bouncy things everyone remembers about Power Girl?
    *** Dude! Her breasts! Tits! Jugs! The other Wonder Twins! THE GIGANORMOUS GOZANGAS! AAAAAAGH!!!
    *** To be fair, her firm but well-rounded "tragic backstory" isn't too bad either.
  • This gem is found in WTH, Casting Agency? under the Western Animation section. It Makes Sensein Context
    "Luke Skywalker, Destroyer of Worlds."
  • Too Dumb to Fool has either improved or ruined Star Wars forever.
    * The Jedi mind trick doesn't work on two groups of sentient beings: exceptionally smart ones and exceptionally dumb ones.
    ** Also certain species, if the plot demands.
    *** Three, three groups of sentient beings.
    *** Also skilled Force-users.
    *** Four, then, four groups...
    *** I thought it was "strong willed" beings, not smart ones.
  • This interpretation of the episode "Members Only" from The Powerpuff Girls section of Getting Crap Past the Radar.
    "The giant robot monster emerges and begins to GROW in size, threatening the MANHOOD of all the male superheroes. He challenges the other members to DISPLAY their MANHOOD and COMPARE it against his to see whose is LARGER. The battle only serves to EXCITE the beast. It FEEDS off the EXPULSIONS of their MANLINESS and makes him HARDER. The PPGs intervene by forming a giant flaming PUSSY cat and attack the villain. The PUSSY cat RUBS UP AGAINST the robot's HARD exterior making it HOTTER and HOTTER. Eventually the HEAT from the RUBBING reaches a critical point causing him to SCREAM OUT and SHRINK into a SMALLER version of himself. The male superheroes are so grateful for the PPGs' PERFORMANCE that they wish to SUBMIT to the girls' superiority. The girls PUNISH them for their behavior by making them wear dresses. Not too surprising considering how well their PUSSY WHIPPED that monster."
  • From the Satellite Love Interest page:
    * Mikaela from the live-action version of Transformers . She herself asks Sam, "Do you think I'm shallow?" in the first film. To which he replies, "No, there's more to you than meets the eye." Except that no, there isn't.
  • This rather meta discussion from Better Than a Bare Bulb:
    * Every "Movie" movie by Seltzer and Friedberg (such as Epic Movie, Meet The Spartans, and Disaster Movie) is all about hanging lampshades when it's not shoehorning pop culture references. But then they explain what the lampshade is hanging over. Hence, it ends up more horrible than Troperiffic.
    ** Often the lampshades aren't over anything at all, they just ARE.
    *** Which is funny because, you see, most lampshades hang over things, and a lampshade without something to hang over is absurd! Ha! Ha!
    *** Is this a case of "Don't Explain the Lack of Joke"?
    *** HAHAHAHA... wait. Did... did you just make Seltzer and Friedberg FUNNY?
  • Also from Crack Is Cheaper we have this gem:
    * And if your Internet access is horrendously expensive, spending all day at TV Tropes could well become this, too.
    * And you tell us at the BOTTOM of the page?!!
  • From Have a Gay Old Time:
    * Even better, there is a type of bird known as "booby", plural "boobies".
    ** Of course, this derives from the Spanish "Bobo", which means "idiot". That may sound rude, but consider that the booby's word for human is "asshole", which derives from the English "asshole".
  • From Badass Furry, we have this gem:
    "I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the vandal who blanks Wikipedia's 'Crime' article! I am Darkwing Duck!"
    • Also very funny if you try acting it out in Darkwing's style.
  • Idiot Programming provides this:
    Two more examples courtesy of Sony: (Are Microsoft and Sony having a "anything you can screw up, we can screw up worse" competition or something?)
  • While most of the Yu-Gi-Oh! section of New Rules as the Plot Demands definitely counts, two examples that deserve mention are the ones concerning the Castle of Dark Illusions and Yugi's duel with Mako, respectively.
  • Some of the examples on After Show end up being wonderfully redundant due to the template used on that page.
    Sanford is an attempt to do Sanford and Son without the Son.
  • From the Impaled Palm Image Links, there's this Visual Pun (itself a possible CMOF based on how absurd it looks).
  • On the Unscrupulous Hero page:
  • From the Brave Scot page:
    * In the Ramada in York, the fire advisory signs say "Do not take unnecessary risks, but if possible, attack the fire with the instruments provided." In Edinburgh? "Attack the fire with the instruments provided." Wot's dat ye say? "Oonnecessary reesk"? We don't be knoowin' any o' dat arooun' here!"
    ** You would say, if you happen to be an Afrikaner tourist in Edinburgh.
  • From Too Incompetent to Operate a Blanket:
    * Although the infomercial for the Ronco Miracle Blade III set features shots of actors doing exactly what you'd expect knives to do, like cutting a turkey, but the first shot shows an actress stabbing a tomato with an inappropriate knife and apparently hitting the artery.
    • A great deal of that page is laugh-worthy, actually.
    • "The eggs look like Manuel Noriega's skin."
  • The case against the Ancients of Stargate SG-1 on the Neglectful Precursors page. So massive it has its own folder, and halfway down the entry, the tropers up the verdict to teraguilty.
  • Found on Extreme Omnisexual:
    ** Dolphins and whales. People have been injured while swimming with dolphins because they got a little too excited.
    *** So, they're like a water-land version of Boldly Coming?
  • From Berserker Tears:
    * Oh come on guys — Ichi from Ichi the Killer is this in spades. Albeit, he's assassinating people while he cries — not to mention jacking off as well.
    ** Yeah really why isn't he the page pic?
    *** Because then we'd have to hand out barf bags.
  • From So Beautiful, It's a Curse:
    * Uchiha Sasuke's good looks coupled with the fact that All Girls Want Bad Boys have gotten him hordes of admirers, all who blush and Squee at the sight of him, which he finds incredibly annoying and has no patience for it. The worst of them is Karin, who kept one of his sweat-drenched shirts for herself, and planned on "ravaging him after everyone went to bed".
  • The description of X23 becoming a Canon Immigrant on the Canon Foreigner page is beautiful.
    "This X-23 character is pretty popular among kids ... we should bring her into comics."
    "Let's make her a child prostitute!"

    *A Song of Ice and Fire: Good luck guessing who is ultimately behind any given act of villainy.
  • From the Nightmare Retardant page, under Other.
    "Pretty much happens to anything scary if you choose to face your fears directly. Except for guns. Please do not face guns directly."
  • Pretty much the whole Real Life section on Drives Like Crazy is a goldmine in terms of creative insults, as every troper who added an entry finds a way to riff on their nation's driving skills. Personal favorites include the Macho Train, the various relationships each nationality has with their car horn, the various videos submitted as proof, and the fact that, somehow, public buses being attempted murder on wheels remains an universal constant.
  • From the Mind Screw page:
    * The music video for "Disturbia" by Rihanna. It looks like if Nightmare Fuel manifested itself in music video form, and didn't care about whether it made any sense or not.
  • From the Film folder of Political Correctness Gone Mad:
    * The film Elf, a film unabashedly related to the Christmas holiday starring, y'know, one of Santa's elves, had the tagline of "This Holiday, Discover Your Inner-Elf". Presumably in the film, the cast learns the true meaning of Holiday.
  • From the Real Life folder of Seen It All:
    * Science fiction convention committees (and fans who have been in the scene long enough) aren't even going to bat an eyelash when it comes to wacky hijinks, people of all points on the race/age/gender/sexuality spectrum, and strange ideas. They'll merely sigh and put another rule in the convention guidelines about not using peanut butter in a cosplay or transforming the mattress and hotel staircase into an impromptu sled competition next year.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners has some speculation regarding SpongeBob's sexuality:
    * SpongeBob and Patrick of SpongeBob SquarePants.
    ** Technically, SpongeBob is Asexual, but Heteroromantic.
    *** They may have meant biologically.
    *** In which case he's hermaphroditic.
    *** There's a difference between No Biological Sex and both genders.
    *** Do you understand what you're debating?
    *** Yes, a fictional sponge's sex life. Welcome to TV Tropes.

  • Most likely due to the insane (and that's putting it mildly) lengths that the game takes Refuge in Audacity, most Warhammer 40,000 entries on this wiki are utter hilarity, but the absolute best are its entries in Always Chaotic Evil, Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot and This Is Your Premise on Drugs. Hell, the entire Warhammer 40,000 page itself is guaranteed to make you laugh. The fact that the setting runs off a mix of Refuge in Audacity, Troperrific, Rule of Cool, Darker and Edgier, and Serial Escalation guarantees interesting results when applied to the fact that it is also Trope Overdosed.
    • Special mention goes to the following on Magikarp Power, leading one to believe da Orks have learned to trope:
    Da Orks are a 'n-ooniverse example! 'Ur av'rage Grot is puny and no match for 'nyone 'cept maybe one o' dem puny 'umie Guardsmen, but give 'im a few years an' he'll be a full-fledged Boy 'oo can crump a panzee 'umie easy and be a good enuff threat to a Space Marine!

    Meanwhile, in Amsterdam, a pair of teenagers are menaced by a humanoid chicken with a label-gun. ...stop laughing!
    • From the page itself:
      * Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Marvel as Peter Davison struggles to pronounce "Jeugdhotel Centraal".
      • Plus the second-to-last section of the recap proper, posted in its entirety for prosperity:
        Omega then leads the Doctor on a merry chase throughout Amsterdam, though he does take time out of his busy schedule to watch a Dutch street organ and test out his Villainous Creepy Smile on a little kid. The Doctor and Nyssa try to track him down, Peter Davison tries to speak Dutch and gets three out of three words wrong, and they freak out a lot of people around the Amsterdam grachten. Alas, Omega's antimatter body is dissolving, shown to truly gross effect by its face and hands dissolving into paste and green Rice Krispies. Eventually, Omega degrades to the point that he's a completely different actor, and the Doctor calmly (if reluctantly) takes out that label-gun and shoots Omega. Omega then fades to dust, and everything is back to normal.
  • Justice League's section for Celibate Hero. Pasted here since it was deleted:
    * Celibate Hero: Batman pretty much gives Wonder Woman an entire laundry list of reasons why they won't be dating. The best is probably, "You're a princess from a race of immortal warriors while I'm a rich kid with issues. Lots of issues."
    ** It doesn't help that Bruce's other loves are (a) a woman who turned into a murderous vigilante, (b) a criminal, (c) the daughter of a man who wants to Kill All Humans, and (d) Superman's girlfriend, and [according to Batman Beyond] (e) his best friend's daughter who started dressing like him as a teenager who was also in a long relationship with his adopted son. Someone relatively normal doesn't really work for him.
    ** You're forgetting (f) the magician (and fellow hero) he dated in his teens (she insists they're "just good friends" however, and not in that way...) and (g) the artificially-created plant woman who tried to kill him for his money.
    ** He presumably also added (h) the daughter of a mob strongman to his checklist.
    ** Don't forget (i) the half-cheetah scientist who just wanted someone to talk to.
    ** Wait, what trope were we discussing again?

  • Granted, the second half is informative, but the Arc Words section of The Party Never Ended counts:
    * Arc Words: Yo dawg, we heard you like arc words, so we gave your arc words their own arc words so that they can... arc while... they... word? Whatever. The arc words are "I love you, Pinkie! Please wake up!", but those words are not revealed to the reader until near the end. Every time Pinkie hears them, the reader is greeted with "It said seven simple words to her..."
  • Using Slices, Dices, and Makes Julienne Fries as an Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking in the following entry in Chaos Legion:
    Implausible Fencing Powers: The Guilt Legion (swordsmen) are like this. When repeatedly ordered to attack, they are relentless, merciless, and make julienne fries!
  • On the Nightmare Retardant section on "IT"
    Perhaps more Fridge Logic-y, but one running theme is that Pennywise takes the shape of the things that scared its victims - often movie monsters. We see It become the Gillman, Frankenstein's monster, Bruce, The Mummy, and even the Teenage Werewolf. Then one boy is frightened by Rodan, causing Pennywise to take the form of... a lawyer-friendly, generic giant bird. It seems Toho's vicious copyright policies frighten even Eldritch Abominations.

  • The following from the Xxx HO Li C page.
    * Even the Guys Want Him: Kimihiro Watanuki. Remember the Love Triangle he thought he was in? Well... he is interested in Himawari Kunogi and she kinda likes him back, but it turns out his "love rival" Shizuka Doumeki isn't interested in Himawari like he believed, but in Watanuki himself. Oh, and you know Zashiki Warashi, that cute girl that's completely shy and has a huge crush on Watanuki? In all likelihood, "she" is a "he," according to a CLAMP interview where they say that her being female is not necessarily the case. Coupled with the fact that Zashiki Warashi spirits are normally described as being young boys and rarely being girls, along with how Ame-warashi usually says "this child" when referring to Zashiki Warashi instead of actually using a gender... yeah. Watanuki apparently has more luck with the male gender...
  • From the Changeling: The Lost page:
    Touched by Vorlons — "Bad touched by Vorlons" is more like it, though...

    Fake Nationality: While Mulan, Shang and Chi-Fu = Chinese-Americans, Mushu = African-American Shan Yu = Irish-Puerto Rican, Chien-Po, Ling, the head Ancestor, and the Emperor = Japanese-Americans, Yao = Jewish-American, Mulan's singing voice = Filipina, Shang's singing voice = Osmond-American, Fa Zhou = Korean-American
  • The Paranoia Fuel entry for F.E.A.R.:

  • This bit from The Last Unicorn page:
    * Narm: Whenever somebody mentioned the Red Bull, I kept picturing the energy drink.

  • On the page for Jersey Shore, Snooki is described with the trope Our Goblins Are Different In fact, most of the stuff on that page qualifies. This, for instance:

  • From the Fallout: New Vegas page:
    Legion money, on the other hand, is actually valued higher than caps because it's made of precious metals. It can also be combined with shotgun shells to form coin shot, which is a currency accepted EVERYWHERE.
  • The Fan-Preferred Couple entry on the Corpse Bride page:
    * Fan-Preferred Couple: Victor/Emily as opposed to Victor/Victoria
    ** It's not uncommon to find fans who ship Emily with Bonejangles.
    *** *cough* VICTORand Jack *cough*
  • From the Full Metal Panic! page under Ho Yay:
    * Gauron towards Sousuke. Also overlaps with Foe Yay.
    ** It is now completely canon. Watch the TSR comedy radio show where Gauron acts as the school's "sensei." Gato is doing this on purpose. Gauron orders Sousuke to write on the chalk board "Kashim loves Gauron Sensei. Heart. ♥" as well as "Gauron Sensei's extreme attack makes Kashim's heart pound. I want to have children with him." Followed by what appears to be an attempt to rape Sousuke in front of the class. Yay for subtlety.

  • From the Questionable Content page:
    Expy: Jeph mentioned in a recent forum post that he designed Marigold to be essentially "an Anglicized version of Konata from Lucky Star."
    * So of course unlike Konata she's overweight, antisocial, and a complete slob. ... Did we mention the Eagleland thing above already? Okay good.
  • On the That Wacky Redhead page under the For Want of a Nail folder, there's a section describing two certain changes in regards to microwave power and Three Mile Island, respectively... In the Style of... The Man Your Man Could Smell Like.
    * Hello, readers. How much do you know about microwave power? Google it. Look at the results, now to me, now to the results, now back to me. Look again. The concept has become discredited.
    ** Now, Google "Three Mile Island accident". Look down. Now up. That too is no more. I'm doing a parody. (insert Old Spice theme here)
  • This series of tropes from the recap page for the "Monster a Go Go" episode of MST3K:
    * Blatant Lies: At one point Joel denies having brought a soda into the theater, despite the fact that we heard him open the can and saw him drink from it.
    ** Fridge Brilliance: There was no soda. The soda was found, unopened and cold in the refrigerator.
    *** Fridge Logic: By saying that, you suggest this episode had a plot having anything to do with the movie. That suggests the very thing the writers say isn't true: that it had a plot.
  • From the "Hush" recap page:
    * Riddle for the Ages: Why do the Gentlemen need those hearts?
  • A person asked this hilarious question on the Franz Ferdinand page.
    * Surreal Music Video: What the hell happened again in "Take Me Out"?
  • On the RWBY page, the troper nightelf37 accidentally wrote the words 'tracker jackers' instead of 'rapier wasps'. The next editor's response?
    Mangodog: I too have had Hunger Games on the brain.
  • Even if you haven't seen the movie, you know that Old Yeller ends with the dog dying. However, a little lampshading isn't unwelcome:

  • From the Kenan & Kel page:
    * Serious Business: After Bulls guard Ron Harper slips on some spilled orange soda, injuring himself, all of Chicago is out to get Kenan & Kel. And Chris.
    ** If it was MJ himself, they would've been dead within the hour.
  • The Character page for Kingdom Hearts has a hilarious one in regards to how some characters died in Birth By Sleep. Considering that Lady Tremaine and the Wicked Stepsisters had recently crossed the Moral Event Horizon someone also linked to Burn the Bitches in each of their character entries.
  • From the Narm entry on the Bible Black page:
    So much of it. One of, and to some the only claim to fame the series has.
    ** "You're rude, you asshole! You didn't have to hit me!"
    ** "It's because you're so persistent. I said that I would show it to you, but not lend it."
    ** "Please rape me, right now."
    ** "I want to hold your dick."
    ** A background character exclaims "Just jerkin off.."
    ** "HERE, HERE." Doesn't help when Imari's voice actress sounds like your grandmother. ಠ_ಠ
    ** The game's dialogue has it's moments, as well. Just not as many as the anime.
    ** Between the porn, the gore, and the ridiculous attempts at portraying Kabbalistic demonology (they speak archaic Hebrew when they chant, but while their WORDS are Hebrew, the sentences don't make a bit of sense!) every last bit of drama is completely and utterly lost.
  • From the Season 8 trope page for How I Met Your Mother:
  • Deom the CMOA page for The Blues Brothers:
    * The soundtracks to both movies are musical CMoA in my opinion - If you can't tap your feet during the musical numbers there must be something wrong with you!
    ** Consider the sheer number of musical genres represented.
    ** The awesomeness of all the awesomely awesome musicians they managed to get to perform should have caused some kind of world-imploding awesomeness singularity event.
    *** So... it was good?
  • Of all page quotes one could choose for the Sonic '06 page, what was placed?:
  • The page for The Three Caballeros has this entry for Deranged Animation.
    * Some parts of this film skip being bizarre and practically start off in the freakin' Twilight Zone.
    ** "Submitted for your approval, a journey into the mind of a duck as he searches for his Latin American soulmate." *beat* looks confusedly and worriedly at his cigarette "What the hell is in this thing?"
  • From The Expendables page:
    Somewhere, Michael Bay is watching this movie, dabbing a tissue at the single Manly Tear at the corner of his eye, and whispering, "it's beautiful". Then he throws away the tissue. And it explodes.

  • This (Samuel L. Jackson page; most of it has since been deleted):
    * Ray Arnold in Jurassic Park came before Jackson's popularity really took off, and was easily his least Badass role: He was a grouchy computer nerd with a bad nicotine addiction who got killed off-screen by velociraptors (he wants you to hold onto your butts).
    ** Not true, his least badass role was in Coming to America, an Eddie Murphy vehicle. He played a one shot thug who tried to rob the fast food place and got his ass kicked by Eddie Murphy with a mop. It was sad.
    ** Although this troper maintains that Samuel L. Jackson only lost the one arm to the pack of raptors (which were much more numerous in the book), and was able to kill near all of them before getting away. He then ran into the T-rex and went (mind you at this point, he only has one arm) on to best the Rex in single combat. The Rex was impressed and vowed to avenge Jackson, thus supplying the Deus ex Machina scene at the end of the movie where the T-rex saves the day and saves Jackson's rep.
    *** ...And that is now officially part of this troper's personal canon.
    *** Well, now we now know what Jurassic Park 4 will be about.
    *** ...Agreed.
    *** Obviously.
    *** I would normally say how stupid that sounds, but it's Samuel L. Mutha Fuckin' Jackson. I now submit it to a vote as to whether nerds everywhere take this as canon.
    *** All of them. Ever.
    *** And then Samuel L. Jackson and the T-Rex both travel to the mainland at the end, Samuel gets a bionic arm, and they go into business together as private investigators.
    *** This troper just had an orgasm reading that.
    *** Or alternately, he ripped off his own arm to beat the raptors to death with it and escape the island. He's awesome like that.
    *** Pffft, no. He got his arm torn off, beat the raptor that attacked him to death with it, and, having slain the pack's leader, took over the pack. The raptors hunting the rest of the cast were rebels who dared to defy Jackson's authority, so he sent the T-Rex to "discipline" them. As a reward, the T-Rex is allowed to chill with Jackson's raptors and serves as His Awesomeness' personal mount. When the Costa Rican military shows up to check out the island, Jackson hitches a ride with them back to the mainland because would you say no to the guy riding the T-Rex with a squad of raptors marching in formation behind him? Then he gets his bionic arm. It probably has a lightsaber built into it. Purple, of course.
    *** While he was on fire.
    *** You're all loony.
    *** We're the sane ones, you're loony for thinkin Samuel "BMF" Jackson wouldn't manage it. While having a refreshing beverage.
    *** Now that we have said it, IT MUST BE CANON. Which scenario you ask? Both. He's just that awesome.
    *** I'm weeping tears of joy just reading all of this. I reckon he then went back and taught the Raptors and the T-Rex how to be Jedi and gave them all bionic arms. That's why the island is so fucked up by the time of the third film. They conquered the island in brutal cyborg dinosaur Jedi combat, then left to teach the rest of the world how to be badass.
    *** I don't even LIKE Star Wars and I still think this is awesome.
    *** Oh, and you know that thing with the Force lightning in ROTS? That just gave him the power to control ice and blasted him into a parallel universe.

  • This lovely piece of Deadpan Snarker-y from the Doctor Who Narm page:
    * In the final Tenth Doctor story, the Master is revived by a secret cult. But there is absolutely no indication that these people were aware that he was an evil Time Lord; he is technically being resurrected by a cult devoted to a dead Prime Minister. This is hilarious when you think about it.
    ** To understand the absurdity of the situation, it's like if members of the Labour Party were meeting in the dungeons of Transport House to bring Harold Wilson back to life.
    *** ... If Harold Wilson had been telepathically manipulating a large percentage of the population for over a year before being elected.

  • This bit in its hilarity on the Pokémon Getting Crap Past the Radar page.
    * There's also Harley. Basically every thing about him is Ambiguously Gay. He even calls May "girlfriend" a few times. It's so blatant you'd have no idea how it didn't get any angry letters from soccer moms.
    ** He could be in love with May for all we know.
    *** Bah, he ships her with Drew.
    *** He wants his beloved to be happy and knows he's too old for her?
    ** Ambiguously Gay? What about this line?
    Harley: (throws off his cloak to reveal that he's dressed like May) Peekaboo! It's your favorite naughty Coordinator — me!
    ** Yeah, try Camp Gay. There's nothing ambiguous about Harley.
    ** Also, of course, Silver's stripping scene. Silver, hating Team Rocket is not a good excuse for stripping people. Not that the fandom has any problem with it.

  • The "conversation" had by the Executive and Developer in the Ring Raiders entry on the Getting Crap Past the Radar page.
    Executive: So, um, we need a new toy line or something.
    Developer: How about a series of disembodied pair of legs that have a parrot perched on the pelvis and an eyepatch on the left arse cheek? We could call them Butt Pirates.
    Executive: Maybe. Any other ideas?
    Developer: How about Anal Invaders? I can't think of what they'd be, but the name's pretty good, right?
    Executive: (nods approvingly)
    Developer: OH! How about a set of plastic rings with fighter jets on them? We could call them Ring Raiders.
    Executive: Perfect! And we can make it into a cartoon series somehow!
    Developer: For fuck's sake, Gary, stop agreeing with me. I'm trying to lose my job before Mattel buys us out.
    Executive: So am I.

  • From the Getting Crap Past the Radar page for KaBlam!:
    * The name of this segment is an example of Getting Crap Past the Radar. "Sniz" is slang for the female genitals, and yes it was in use before the show was made.
    ** -waves bye to childhood-
  • This excerpt from WhamEpisode.Western Animation. Probably the best reaction to that particular infamous scene.
    "The Magical Mystery Cure in which Twilight rewrites an ancient spell, thereby becoming an alicorn & a princess. Sweet Celestia, where do we go from here?"
  • From WallBangers.Film:
    *** Errr, how did you expect him to use a syringe on Jean when she was disintegrating everything around her? She was destroying whole buildings and humans and mutants in seconds; there's no way that the syringes would remain whole through her onslaught. It's not like they're made from the same material as Wolverine's pants.
    *** Hide it in his pants. Problem solved. If Hugh Jackman was walking up to you and started reaching into his pants to pull something out, you'd pause your destruction out of curiosity too.
    *** ...Dammit, I would.

  • The following lines from the Funny Moments page for The Day After:
    Go ahead, find something funny about this film. WE DARE YOU.
    Does the fact that there's a Crowning Moment of Funny section for a non-humorous film count?
  • From the Mahou Sensei Negima! Funny Moments page, this extract:
    At the beginning of the seventh volume of Mahou Sensei Negima!!, Asuna starts acting as though she has suddenly fallen in love with Negi, which was done dramatically (more or less) until it was revealed that she had partaken of a Love Potion by mistake. She starts to act relieved...and then this happens.
    The fact that the victim of The Glomp has a major Bodyguard Crush on the girl who's latched onto her makes it even funnier.
    Neh, where I come from, "glomps" don't start with your arms around someone's waist and your face snuggled up against their hips... ;-)
    It all depends on the reaction time. Setsuna's was better, but not by enough. ^_^
    I don't think that's Setsuna's waist she has her arms around...
  • From the YMMV Hearths Warming Eve page (also doubles as a CMOA somewhat):
    * Aesop Amnesia: At first before the pageant with Rainbow Dash and the lesson of "The Mysterious Mare Do Well".
  • This line from the Dragon Ball Abridged Funny Moments page.
    * In episode 18: Vegeta discovers the Dragonball he hid away is missing. This irritates him.
  • This line from The Star Wars Holiday Special Tear Jerker page:
    * OK, whoever just said "the fact that this was made", go sit in the corner.
  • The Crowning Moment of Funny page for Menagea3'' is pretty funny, but its the following that takes the cake:
    * Does this mean I had a three-way?
    ** The following reply from the forum:
    No, Gary. You were just getting a little head.
  • Any entry becomes funnier with emoticons. From Spoony's funnies page:
    Wakka: You're no amateur. Who you play for?
    Tidus/Meg Ryan: The Zanarkand Abes! :D
  • Nestled in the middle of an example on the Breaking Bad CMOA page contains this gem:
    * Before the finale, Badfinger was an obscure band that had faded from common memory. The use of their song, 'Baby Blue' in the finale increased interest in the song by over NINE THOUSAN- you know what, let's just say by a large perecentage, and it might actually have brought them out of obscurity.
  • From the Seinfeld CMOA:
    * The making of the episode "The Outing." NBC execs were worried that it would offend the homosexual community, so the line "Not that there's anything wrong with that" was added after every problematic line. Not only did it solve the problem, but also became one of the show's most popular lines, and also nicely mocked the people who made the objections by pointing out how ridiculous it would be to have some kind of standardized disclaimer after anything potentially offensive.
    ** The LGBT community also completely loved and embraced it. It even won a GLAAD award. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
