Funny: Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
  • "The maker of these handcuffs isn't exactly known for their quality craftsmanship. Perhaps you should try the Lezareno model. I'll send you a free sample." This from Regal, who had demonstrated the inferiority of the former model of handcuffs by snapping them right off his wrists.
  • Presea's warning of a border guard that opening her "good luck charm" Iron Maiden (where Marta is hiding), will result in a curse that involves many months of vomiting, diarrhea, and the Lord of Demons shoving his finger up the guard's nose. He capitulates. Turns out Marta was hidden behind a false door anyway. Presea was just screwing with the guy.
  • Just after Sheena joins the party, she makes a comment about how she'd never forget seeing a guy like Richter because he fell for the oldest trick in the book. Sheena then falls into a pitfall and Regal apologizes in a tone that fails to hide how amused he is.
  • For that matter, ten bazillion of the skits as well. They turned the funny Up to Eleven for the sequel, it seems.
    • Full voice acting on the skits (which didn't make it into the English-language release of the original) works wonders.
    • Sheena and Regal talk about how fond Zelos is of his half-sister Seles is, followed by Tenebrae twisting their words to make it sound like they're insinuating he's in love with her. Zelos is not amused.
    • Colette summarizing up Raine's Ruin Mode in one skit. Emil is appropriately creeped out.
    • Tenebrae making a pun so bad that Raine and Genis attack him for it.
    • "Mom".
  • Not to mention Decus' intro scene. Acts like Emil WANTS him and forces his hideously foul-smelling cologne on him. Cue pop-up box:
    Eau de Seduction was forced on you!
  • Even Marta and Emil's battle victory quotes are pretty funny.
    Marta: There's no victory before love!
    Emil: So you lose if you there's no love?
    Marta: Yes! So please, tell me you love me!
    Emil: ...We can lose next time.\\
    Marta: EMIIIIL!
    • This one's good too, especially as Ratotosk Mode Emil says his line completely deadpan.
    Marta: Beautiful roses have thorns!
    Emil: Beauty, Marta has a fang.
    Marta: Be a little more enthusiastic!
  • The Spot the Impostor scene. Oh dear GOD, the expression on the fake's face...
  • During their trip to Palmacosta, post-attack, our heroes come under attack, but are saved by Zelos. Who then flirts with Marta by twirling her, and says this immortal line: "My darling kitten, you're not hurt, are you?". Marta and Emil's expressions... they have to be seen to be believed, and emoticans can't accurately represent their expressions.
  • Decus' Mystic Arte's intro. He lovingly stares at a picture of Alice...which then randomly gets burned for no reason, putting him into a rage and slice you up for it with the letters L-O-V-E.
  • When the party discovers that the fires started in Izoold are caused by a light-frog, Tenebrae insists that they call it by it's proper name - Nazdrovie. They just keep calling it light-frog anyway just to spite him, and when he finally caves and starts calling it a light-frog as well, they all switch to calling it a Nazdrovie instead.
  • When the party escaping from Alice and Decus in the Ice Temple, one of the skits has the party trying to have a conversation mid-chase, only for Tenebrae to cut them off and declare a ban on speaking so they'll focus on running. Cue more skits of Tenebrae trying to speak and everyone yelling at him to be quiet.
  • In the second fight with Magnar, if you use enough lightning artes on him, his hair will turn into an afro.
  • After hearing endless flowery incantations from Album Atrum, it's kind of funny to hear him suddenly yell "YOU PIECE OF CRAP!"
  • In the PS3 port, one of the accessories you can get for Emil is this.
  • Tenebrae's nickname Tenebie is this. Colette gives it to him and sticks to using it because she's Colette. Everyone else in the original cast uses it to troll him.
