Funny: The Infinite Loops
    Innortal's Loops: 
  • Harry Potter loops:
    Lina: I really don't see how me using a Dragon Slave is a bad thing.
    Harry: (urge to kill rising) Because … that would level the dragon, the stadium, Hogwarts, and a good portion of the countryside, which I'm sure they'd deduct from any winnings you might receive.
    Lina: … Are you saying they'd make a student pay for all of that?
    Harry: To be honest, I'm surprised they don't in your world. How many towns have you wrecked?
    • Harry decides to get sorted into Hufflepuff one loop. One Smash Cut later, he's taken over the world.
      • Later on its mentioned that world conquest happens every time Harry goes into Hufflepuff, even when he's not intending to.
    • Harry decides to go to Mardi Gras and accidentally takes Snape along for the ride. They return to Hogwarts one week later, completely hammered.
    Professor McGonagall: Mr. Potter, you're drunk!
    Harry Potter: Yes I am! I'm also tattooed, a member of the State Senate thanks to a bet, and I think I might be engaged to a classroom full of Veela.
    • Ron and Hermione's awakening in the loops ends up being right after a Dark Lord Potter loop. Needless to say, they're not pleased.
    • One loop has Wade Wilson and Luna Lovegood in a romantic relationship. Harry calls them "a match made in Nerima."
      • The very next loop has Deadpool as the Divination professor. 'Nuff said.
    Deadpool: I am your Divinations Teacher, Deadpool. Now for roll call. If I don't call your name, you are obviously either unimportant to the story line or you'll die somehow before graduation, so I won't waste the effort to teach you any skills.
    • And the reaction shot to Deadpool's announcement:
    Ron: ... um, Harry?
    Harry: Your own fault, Ron. See, if you had stood out more from your brothers, you wouldn't worry about this.
    • Harry faces a boggart once more, wondering what his worst fear would be after so many loops. The result speaks for itself.
    Harry: (freaked out) Riddikulus!
    Boggart!Snape: (turns female) Actually, I loved your father more than anything. I … am your mother.
    • Harry becomes part Phoenix. The teachers and Hermionie try to convince him to reverse it, leading to this exchange:
    Ron: She might have a point, mate. You sure that change isn't messing with you?
    Harry: Ron, it would be like you being made a Cannon, and people saying you should give it up.
    Ron: … See Hermione, he makes more sense. Why can't you explain things like that?
    Harry: Hey, Draco! Gift!
    Hermione: HARRY!
    Harry: What? It still had the pin in it … when he caught it. Um … run?
    • Before that, Hogwarts had exploded from the C4 he had given to the Muggle Studies Teacher who was supposed to get the grenade.
    • Harry deciding to do an "act like a pirate" loop.
    • The mere suggestion of turning Snape into a male Veela, and the reaction to it.
    Hermione: Do you really want Snape to be a sex god for even one Loop?
    Harry: … Damn you and your logic, Granger!
  • Ranma 1/2 loops:
    • Upon receiving cat!Shampoo in the mail, Ranma suggests taking her to the vet. Hilarity ensues.
    • Ranma tries to summon a bird with magic, and ends up with Godzilla instead.
    • Ranma and Nabiki encounter future John Connor and mistake him for Bruce Wayne.
    • In one loop, Ranma absorbs Lilith. In later loop, he absorbs Darkseid. A more powerful by absorbing Ranma's energy Lilith meets a weakened by a battle with Ranma Darkseid in Ranma's mindscape. She turns him into a pet.
    Lilith: Speak!
    Darkseid: Release me and I shall make your death quick.
    Lilith: Someone needs a time out! Oh! And a nice pink outfit! That blue so does not make you look cute.
    • Apparently, fate is a sentient entity within the loops.
    • A loop where Lina Inverse replaces Sasuke also replaces Itachi with Lina's sister Luna. The loop manages to incorporate why Lina is afraid of Luna with the Uchiha brother's history.
    Some say [[Luna]] killed [[the Uchiha clan]] because her little sister had displayed a video of Luna bathing to the entire clan.
  • Bleach loops:
    • A loop where Ichigo discovers that Yuzu is the Bigger Bad above Aizen.
    • Another loop has Orihime becoming Starfire. Ichigo notices that something's different about her, but the two characters are so similar, that try as he might, he doesn't know what it is.
    • Powerless for a loop, Ichigo tries to get his father to stop Byakuya from killing him.
    Isshin: Kuchiki-sama, I humbly beg that you do not kill my son.
    Byakuya: ...No.
    Isshin: Well, I tried.
  • Naruto loops:
    • The cold opening that intoduces the loops. It shows team introductions scene over and over again, each with a new spin.
    "My name's Naruto Uzumaki. I love ramen and making things explode, I hate people who rat me out because then I have to take the time to make them disappear and that takes time from my favorite things. My goal is to kill two Uchihas since its something Emo here will never accomplish."
    "My name means nothing, for I have foreseen the horrible and painful ways you will all die within four years. But since I have foreseen the events leading up to those deaths and I find you bastards deserved to get offed that way, I won't say anything more. But Sasuke man, I'll be selling videos of your death, funny shit."
    Naruto: I'm Naruto Uzumaki, and I'm a free spirit!
    Kakashi: (thinking) That would explain the total lack of clothing. (out loud) Alright Pinky, your turn.
    Sakura: I'm Sakura Haruno, and I like my men to be more... mature. (winks)
    Kakashi: Um... Okay. (turns to Sasuke) Now you.
    Sasuke: I'm Sasuke Uchiha. I intend to kill my brother. Would you like a balloon animal?
    Kakashi: Why are you wearing clown make-up?
    Sasuke: It elevates my mood.
    • The first crossover:
    Teacher: Uchiha, Sasuke.
    Sorting Hat:(without touching him) SLYTHERIN!
    Sakura and Ino: NOOO! Sasuke-kun can't be evil!
    Naruto: Still better than the loop where we were all Smurfs.
    • They keep working the fandom gag:
    Naruto: (summons several shadow clones) We are the Borg, you will be assimilated, your ramen techniques and flavors will be added to our own, resistance is futile.
    Sakura: (thought balloon) Not only was he annoying, he was a Trekkie. Dear God, she was being chased by a Trekkie! They never stopped! How could this be worse?
    Sasuke: "Star Wars" was so much better.
    Sakura: (thought balloon) Noooooo! Sasuke-kun is supposed to like Harry Potter! Damn you, Ino-pig! I read those books and did all those fanfics for nothing!
    Naruto:(drunk) Is it wrong to want to beat the shit out of your younger self?
    Sasuke:(also drunk) Seems pretty common to me.
    • A mega crossover loop where Ranma is Naruto's jonin sensei, with Alucard and Chibi-Usa as teammates. The latter two end up fighting over a Double Entendre. Cue explosions.
    Outside the Academy, the whole building shook before cracking in two, as a loud yell of "DAMN IT, KENPACHI!" from Iruka was heard.
    • Just the team assignments in that loop were hilarious:
    Iruka: Team 6. Ranma Saotome, Nabiki Tendo, and Usagi Tsukino. Your sensei is - Saotome! No committing seppuku in my classroom!
    Ranma: It'll be less painful for me this way, sensei.
    Naruto: Quit bitching, Saotome. Shouldn't you at least wait to see who your teacher is?
    Iruka: Your instructor is Anko Mitarashi.
    Naruto: ... stab away.
    • And then...
    Iruka: Team 7: Naruto Uzumaki, Saruka Haruno, and Sasuke Uchiha. Your instructor is Kenpachi Zaraki with special assistant, Yachiru Kusajishi. Now - Naruto! I already said there is no seppuku in my classroom!
    • Or Shinji's increasingly desperate attempts to confess during team selection to being a spy for Hidden Sand, Hidden Sound, or anywhere else that would get him arrested for treason and thus not assigned to his team.note  Iruka ignores Shinji completely.
    • Naruto gives Sasuke some advice related to a Noodle Incident that possibly reached the Holy Shit Quotient:
    "If you ever have a metal cube call the AllSpark, never drop it on something called the Death Star".
    • Naruto using being left tied on a pole as an excuse to seceed and make his own hidden village; a perfect copy of Konohagakure, except that everyone is a Naruto clone. He calls it Ramengakure.
      • Naruto!Itachi interacting with Sasuke.
      • Team Gai meeting their Ramengakure counterparts. Summed up in one sentence:
    The world just wasn't ready to handle Gai and 'Gai'.
    • The loop where Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura decide to dress and act exactly Maito Gai just to mess with Kakashi, who runs screaming at the sight.
      • Not to mention, they got the other loopers in on the prank:
    Gaara: (deadpan) Yosh. Mother requires us to exercise our youthful spirit. This will not be an issue.
    • Team 7 recieves the infamous Tora mission again, except the goal is now to assassinate Tora.
      • In another loop, they kill Tora anyway, without prompting. Bonus for getting a standing ovation for doing so.
    Kakashi: ...You killed the Fire Lord's pet cat.
    Naruto: Well, how were we to know? You can't expect me to believe that thing was just a normal cat.
    Sasuke: I stand by my decision. I'm sure a full autopsy will reveal we were correct in the end.
    • "He called me a Tobi, that's just low..."
    • Naruto trolling Kisame and Itachi.
    Naruto: Sorry, but I ain't gonna be used as bait just because Ero-Sennin slept with your wives.
    Itachi: Excuse me?
    Naruto: You're here because the Pervy Sage slept with someone you're related to or know, right?
    Kisame: Can I just cut his legs off?
    Naruto: Listen, Flipper, I don't care who he slept with; I am not going to pay just because my godfather is a man-whore.
    Itachi: We seek what you carry within you.
    Naruto: … I knew that ramen was special! Did someone sneak some code or battle plans into it?
    Itachi: We refer to the Kyuubi no Yoko.
    Naruto: Oh, he got out weeks ago. I am not responsible if he knocked up, killed, or owes money to you or your family members.
    • Naruto switching toilet paper for explosive tags. The funniest part is that his would be victims thought it was Actually Pretty Funny, even though would've been a horrible way to die.
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion loops:
    • As it turns out, the EVA-01/Yui Ikari doesn't like being painted purple.
    • Operation Mini-Me, in which Shinji decides to dress and act exactly like his father.
    Gendo stared down at his child, his mind trying furiously to do two things.
    The first was to understand why those who watched him had failed to report such a change in the boy. This was no quiet wallflower with self-esteem issues.
    In addition, the second was to not imagine Ritsuko saying, "We created a clone of you, one-eighth your size."
    • The loop where Shinji has a threesome with Asuka and Rei and pretends not to know why Misato is upset.
    Shinji: Was it the illegal gambling I do with Pen-Pen?
    Misato: (frustrated) Noo...
    • The above exchange is followed by Pen-Pen entering the room and giving Shinji an envelope full of money.
    Shinji: Rei, how many Loops have we been through?
    Rei: Seven thousand, eight hundred, and forty seven, counting this Loop.
    Shinji: Okay … wow. You counted them all.
    Rei: I believe that is what I said.
    • Shinji stages a coup d'état, while getting everyone to believe that Pen-Pen is the leader.
    Misato: Penpen, please tell Mommy why you wanted Shinji to start a coup d'état here at NERV.
    Pen-Pen: Wark wark wark.
    Shinji: He says he isn't saying anything until he gets a lawyer.
    Pen-Pen: Wark.
    Shinji: And some beer.
    Section 2 agent: We don't give into the demands of a probable terrorist—I can't believe I just said that.
    Could be worse, I could be haunted by Ghost Nappa like Ranma is…
  • [Gendo] had simply sent the Third Child a letter with only one word: Come. Shinji's reply was just as short. However, it included a picture of the Third Child bending over, apparently slapping his bare ass, with one word as well. Kiss.
    Gendo (thought balloon): If we were not all about to die soon and all my plans coming down around me, I would feel proud.
  • The Loopers get bored and decide to liven up an Eva Fused Loop with some... additions.
    JSDF General: Ikari, if this is some joke, I'll have you castrated for it!
    Gendo just blinked. He was pretty sure Voltron was not in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

    The MLP Loops: 
  • Loop 4.8:
    “I honestly have no idea how to solve this.” Twilight said, looking at the unconscious human lying on Fluttershy’s lawn. “I didn’t know this could happen.”
    “Ooh! Ooh! I know!” Pinkie said. “You could make a conver-mmmph!”
    Twilight’s hoof had gone into Pinkie’s mouth without her looking. “Let me make one thing clear, Pinkie. We Do Not Talk About The Bureau!
  • Loop 4.9:
    • How Twilight and Applejack solved the Seperatist problem in a Star Wars loop.
    Spike: Twilight will take your entire separatist movement apart!
    Count Dooku: Oh, I don't think so, young Jedi Knight. We are quite ready for one Jedi Master.
    (Alicorn Twilight and Applejack tear the roof off of the entire mountain, and land in front of Dooku)
    Count Dooku: (in the tones of someone hoping he had spare trousers somewhere)... oh, you meant literally. In that case, Chancellor Palpatine is Lord Sidious, please don't kill me.
  • Loop 6.4 shows the one thing that can reduce Sovereign to a quivering mass of fear.
  • Loop 10.4 and Discord's most diabolical plan yet for driving Celestia insane:
    Celestia: That Discord has returned? Yes. Yes he has. Also, he is re-organizing our tax system to more efficient form and has cleared several our laws to be more streamlined and, oh yes... he is not acting like Discord! He is... not chaotic! He's even organized the guard rotation to be clearer!
    Luna: He just looked over the workers union proposal and reformed it into the most efficient organization We have ever seen. He is currently looking over our diplomatic relations.
    Twilight: ... should we stop him?
    Celestia: That's just it! We are not sure!
  • Loop 14.3 features Twilight and Cadence having some fun with the elementsnote . Celestia puts it best while unwittingly explaining it to Discord.
    Celestia: For some reason, whenever Twilight and her friends do… something, they summon a duplicate copy of my niece who kicks the problem until it is not a problem any more. Nightmare Moon comes back – kicked in the face. Dragon causes problems in Ponyville – kicked in the chest. Rampaging hydra? Kicked in all the faces. And then there was the Ursa Minor that got kicked in the fundament.
  • Loop 17.13. The looping Mane Six plan to deal with Nightmare Moon this loop by means of the the introduction of pizza to Equestria, a spare Lance of Longinus from NeonGenesisEvangelion, and Spike's opera training, which can cause panties to spontaneously combust. However, Sombra interrupts their plans by replacing Celestia. And then, this happens.
    Spike: "Oh, no. How did Granny Smith become Old Mare Henderson again?!"
  • Loop 18.1: This shout-out. Just... this shout-out. And the in-universe reaction to it.
    When Nightmare Moon refocused, she was inside a comically large icecube and there was a thrashing monster being forced backwards by two tridents and a leash.
    Everyone jumped. “What was that?” several voices asked.
  • Loop 20.1:
    Rainbow Dash: “Wait, what just happened? Did you just disprove Trixie with science?”
    Twilight Sparkle: “Actually, it was logic. Proof by contradiction.”
    Rainbow Dash: “But we saw her! She was doing it!”
    Twilight Sparkle: “Anecdotal evidence counts for nothing.”
  • Loop 20.2: Trixie's method for dealing with Nightmare Moon... and its aftermath:
    Trixie: Cured her! Got her drunk for real and we had a heart-to-heart, she got it all out of her system, and then I explained what was actually going on.
    Twilight Sparkle: Huh. Guess sometimes all a pony really needs is a shoulder to cry on.
    Trixie: Yeah... might not be a good method to try out again, though. Nightmare Moon can be a bit of a fighty drunk. Anyway, if Celestia asks, that's why Horseshoe Bay is now just, er, Horseshoe.
  • Loop 27.9: Pinkie Loops into Hogwarts, alone. Naturally, Hilarity Ensues.
  • Loop 28.2: Nyx (from the fanfic "Past Sins", essentially a chibi version of Nightmare Moon) stands in for Nightmare Moon/Luna at all her public appearances.
    Nyx (in a childish squeaky voice): Oh, sure, it’s fine for a pony to dress up as a chicken, but you get the deity of the night coming to her own festival as a pumpkin and suddenly they’re ‘not in the spirit of the holiday’. Well, hmph.
    • 28.3 also gives us a rare triple crowner-Twilight Sparkle giving Nightmare Moon therapy. After just a few sessions, her mask completely cracks and she switches from the vengeful villain to a quivering mass of woobieness. The immediate Smash Cut from Nightmare Moon threatening all of Equestria with eternal night to her breaking down in Twilight's office is just too absurd not to laugh at.
  • Loop 29.8: Spike and Rarity have a spat. Which results in them duelling in the Frozen North, and concludes with Spike unconscious in Princess Luna's room, not to mention Luna angrily jabbing Spike with a spear in order to get her room back.
  • Loop 29.10: Rainbow Dash breaks the Loop bad enough for the Mane 6 to become their G1 counterparts, which would be fine for all of them, except for one tiny quibble on Twilight's part.
    Twilight: I look just like my mother!
  • Loop 37.3: It's the combination of minimalism and absurdity that does it.
    Rarity: ...Why are we cuttlefish?
    Twilight: I have no idea.
  • Loop 37.4: Diamond Tiara wakes up in a Babylon5 Loop, replacing Ivonova, and with Silver Spoon brainwashed beyond recognition by the Psi Corps, so she decides to take it out on someone, anyone. She gets a survey team.
    Diamond Tiara: And one other thing to contemplate on your way back here; the Babylon 5 mantra. Lt. Tiara is always right. I will listen to Tiara. Tiara is Next to Celestia. And, if this ever happens again, TIARA WILL PERSONALLY RIP YOUR LUNGS OUT!" (Beat) "Have a nice day."
  • Loop 38.5 and the first visit of Lemon Rushnote  to Equestria, a Looper whose in-Loop identity is as a very young Earth pony in Fluttershy's care. When an unAwake Gilda roars in Fluttershy's face just as she did in the original 'Griffon the Brush-Off', Lemon Rush — who is currently a young colt not even one-fifth Gilda's size — proceeds to effortlessly dropkick Gilda so hard that she does backflips down the road, then jump up and down on her prone and twitching body.
    Fluttershy: When did you learn to fight like that?
    Lemon Rush (grinning): I'm a Primarch. We were made good at fighting.
    • Arguably this is also a CMOA, but its here because of the mental image of Gilda getting knocked on her plot by a squeaky-voiced colt about the size of Rumble or Button Mash.
  • Loop 39.1 continues on from Loop 27.9, and has Pinkie recounting how she accidentally managed to deal with Quirrel, Lockhart, Snape and Umbridge. During all this she also managed to make a massive supply of polyjuice potion, which Hedgwig gets into, and results in her and Gummy having kids. And then Pinkie decides to experiment on the Hogwarts lake squid in an attempt to create a cool pet for Ron.
    • And according to Pinkie, Voldemort lost any pretence of subtlety and threw an enchanted rock at Harry instead of booby-trapping the Tri-Wizard Cup. It still worked.
  • Loop 41.8. Starting from the second paragraph, which incidentally is when Applejack's Loop Memories hit, like so;
    Applejack: This all doesn't seem too bad, I reckon. The memories should be retur... OH, HAY NO!
    • Because they've looped into a 'verse where the Seaponies are replacing the Colonial Marines. And Twilight and Applejack are replacing Ripley. The Seaponies react to the Xenomorphs in their own particular way.
    Captain Sealight: You all heard the little filly. Nothing down on that planet but horrible non-befriend-y monsters. The poor things must be tired of always crawling around in the dark and gloom. Lets give them some sunshine to play with!"
    Captain Sealight: (after glassing the planet) Hello again, happy campers. Captain Sealight here once again. Our resident tactical pony, Sea Star, has expressed some concerns that some of the space monsters may be hiding deep inside the planet, and had not seen any of our shiny gifts. To remedy this, we have sent them a few planet crackers, delightfully wrapped and complete with greeting cards. If you look out your window, you can all see how a new asteroid belt is made. This is Captain Sealight wishing you a super-fun day! Shoo bee doo!
    • And finally...
    Captain Sealight: Shoo be doo, all you happy campers. As you all know, we have spent the last week in this system playing the super fun "lets drag the largest parts of the former planet and toss them into the sun" game. But as all good times tend to do, this one has come to an end for now. So with that, I'd like to announce that we will leave this place and finally head back home.
    Applejack: Finally!
    Captain Sealight: So without further ado, the Sealaco will be exiting the system and going into hyperspace. Right after we blow up the sun. It's the only way to be sure. This is Captain Sealight saying "shoo be doo", everypony.
  • Loop 42.6, part of one of the longer stories, has Twilight (on the XCOM version of Earth) explaining to a dumbfounded UK police officer that she is the sole stockholder of a corporation in her own name, that she is legally a working animal employed by her own company, and that she is also her own animal handler. The combination is required to allow her to operate normally (as she's not human and would be viewed as an animal legally, despite sentience), but how matter-of-fact she is about the whole thing makes it hilarious.
    • This is compounded by how she's tried to accommodate the officers in other ways as well:
    As if that was a cue, the exterior door opened and Twilight stepped out into the metal stairs, still wearing her overalls and hard hat, but also wearing over her wings a pair of giant foam rubber hands with a Nightlight Industries logo and '#1' on them. She pouted. "And here I was ready to come out with my hands up. I've watched your visual media, isn't that what police are supposed to say?"
  • Loop 46.2: Pinkiel, Angel of Parties. And then another Loop where Pinkie somehow managed to take over the Evangelion world.
    Pinkie Pie: I am. Or Am I? I forget. And I'm not sure which bits are supposed to be said in Big Important Capital Letters. Is there a guide for this somewhere? Anyway... oh, right all the ominous threats and "grr, I'm awesome, fear me" stuff. And something about "the Base Earth", but really, that just seems kind of racist. Unless it's there in the sense of there being an Acid Earth somewhere. What? What do you mean I'm out of time? Who's in charge of this recording studio anyway? Fiiine. I Am the Pony of Celebration. The Joy of Faust. I Am Pinkiel. I have come. To party.
  • Loop 46.8: Just... the entire thing, from Nightmare Moon to Discord, Poor Discord.
  • Loop 48.8: Luna, as Nightmare Moon, decides to upstage Celestia by getting rid of the real terror of the town.
    Luna: "I have banished the rabbit known as Angel, to the Moon, forever."
  • Loop 50.7, and Applejack's potato cider. Best of all is Twilight's reaction.
    Twilight: (after a massive coughing fit) Has it gone dark all of a sudden?
    Applejack: Er... nope.
    Twilight: Ah. Then I would appear to have gone blind.
    • Twilight has to ascend to shake off the effects. Spike starts shooting flames. Peewee bursts into flames. Discord bursts into flames. Meanwhile Berry Punch tries it, and it doesn't do a thing.
  • Loop 50.11, and Twilight's reaction to a variant Loop that has Equestria as 1984-esque total gray dystopia:
    • The result? "Friend Pinkie Is Watching You. But Only When It's Not Creepy."
  • Loop 50.13: Twilight managing to impress some dragons by stating that Spike can (emphasis present in the original text) clean up after himself.
  • Rarity and Spike ask for only simple gifts at their weddings, like a toaster. They receive a number of items that can create toast... and general havoc, but there is a toast setting!
    Rarity: ... Sweetie, that's an adjustable-output pony-portable plasma anti-tank cannon.
    Sweetie Belle: It has a 'toast' setting! It's in between 'sunburn' and 'political protest'.
  • Loop 53.6: Princess Luna derails the Loop before it even began.
    Book: "None of thy night-loving ponies enjoyest my night? Well, then thou knows what, forget thy ponies!" Nightmare Moon declared, "Verily, I shall make mine own ponies! With blackjack, and... and nightclubs!"
    And so the Queen of the Night departed to her celestial orb, and it vanished into the dark amongst the stars. But on the longest day of the thousandth year, it is said that she will return to show off her new subjects, demanding that all acknowledge 'whose ponies are better now?!!'
  • Loop 54.3: Rainbow Tryygvasen, AVIATRIX ADVENTURER! Complete with musical number.
  • Loop 60.14: The last few parts in this particular series, (Twilight is stuck in the Girl Genius universe as Agatha and is basically tired of the railroading and cruelty torwards the people of the world) ends at a particulary great moment. All the Equestrian loopers that are in the world are together; including Pinkie as Mechanicsburg Castle, the orignal Crusaders as the Jaeger trio, and Rainbow Dash as Othar Trygvassen: Gentleman Adventurer!, the castle is under Twilight's control, the Baron transfered control of the empire to Fluttershy (as Gil), and it ends with Twilight being struck by lightning before putting into effect her MAJOR reforms.
  • Loop 63.9: A Fused Loop with the Transformers has an attempted peace negotiation between Optimus and Megatron interrupted by the sudden and unexpected betrayal of- OK, its just Starscream again. But then the usual scenario goes off the rails.
    Megatron: And here I thought today was going to be boring. Or would you rather do the honors?
    Optimus Prime: By all means, feel free to enjoy-
    Rainbow Dash (flies out of the nearby crowd): AW YEAH! Looks like SOMEPONY just asked for a REMATCH.note 
    Megatron: Is that a rainbow mane?
    Optimus Prime: Yes.
    Megatron: Is she the one that-?
    Optimus Prime: Yes.
    Megatron: Is she Awake?
    Optimus Prime: (with extreme satisfaction) Yes.
    Megatron: Well. On second thought, there are indeed satisfactions to be had outside of battle. By all means, carry on my lord Screaming Star!
    Starscream (backing away): Er, actually, I was wondering if it was too late to apply for a position as-
    At that point Rainbow Dash tackled the would-be changeling lord in midair, and for several minutes to follow Screaming Star lived up to his pony name.
  • Loop 63.14
    Twilight: "Rarity?"
    Rarity: "Yes, Twilight?"
    Twilight: "Why are we sitting in this box watching a third-rate variety show?"
    Waldorf And Statler: "That's what we've been wondering for forty years!"
  • Loop 64.2, and Discord's attending an Equestrian party in the form of a male alicorn... and being positively swarmed by star-struck mares.
    Discord: HELP! I NEED AN ADULT!
  • Loop 77.5 has Twilight telling all the Loopers in Equestria about the prior loop, which can only be described as the most ridiculous Soap Opera ever. There were dozens of fake pregnancies (most of them between the lesbian couples), melodramatic plot twists, evil twins and 435 marriages between Loopers alone. Also, every single Looper apparently got married to Prince Blueblood at some point in time during that single Loop. And Twilight has pictures of all of it.
    Twilight: I do, now and forever, dominate the Blackmail-Material contest.
  • Loop 86.3 is the Equestrian Loopers (and some guests) playing "Never Have I Ever". Words don't do it justice.
    • While there's far too much to repeat here, one sample to whet peoples' appetites:
    Discord: Never have I ever caused someone to drink in 'Never Have I Ever'.
    Applejack: So, if'n we drink... that mean he's lyin', an' we don't drink?
    Twilight Sparkle: New rule. Paradoxical statements are not valid turns.
    • Here are three more samples:
    Sleipnir (Administrator of the MLP Loops): I've never been to Eiken! Drink up, bitches! (before going into a drunken slumber)
    Twilight Sparkle: We do kinda deserve this one. What with all that 307 Ale we kept spiking his drinks with.
    Trixie: After all those deity specific rounds, Trixie is amazed he was still sober enough to think of that one.

    Zecora: Not in any sort of where or when, ever have I a mother been.
    (Most of the room drank at that one, and explanations were demanded of several.)
    Rainbow Dash: Hey, I've adopted Scoots plenty of times to qualify.
    Rarity: Weird variants where Sweetie Belle is my love child from a young teen affair. My parents kept up the charade of her being my sister to protect my reputation.
    Applejack: Same with me and 'Bloom
    Pinkie: Don't you wanna hear mine?
    Applejack: Not really, sugarcube. I don't wanna hear about how you raised Cthulhu or somethin'.
    Pinkie: Silly! I raised Discord! Remember that Loop where we were all raising those normally older than us?
    Applejack: Oh, yeah. Forgot about that one...
    Vinyl Scratch: Apparently Rares was the result of a drunken fling. Dropped her off with some friends cause we both knew I'd be a bad mom, then a couple of years down the line I Awoke. She didn't.
    Rarity: (sighed) Yes, that happens sometimes, although you usually portray yourself as 'auntie Vinyl.
    Vinyl Scratch: I managed to convince you to tour with me for a bit, though!
    Sweetie Belle: (breaks out laughing) This I've gotta see!

    Cheerilee: I've never been married.
    (A good portion of the room ducked for cover while trying to drink. Cadance rockets into Cheerilee's face)
    Cadance (Wedding-obsessed Alicorn of Love mode: ACTIVATE!): WE MUST FIX THIS!

    • Heck, just Discord's attempt to explain why he didn't want to take a turn in the first place, before he resorted to blocking with a paradox:
    Discord: Oh come now. You know that if I could think of anything I haven't done, I'd do it.

  • Loop 87.4, where de-aged Luna/Nightmare Moon, Chrysalis, Discord, Sombra, and an unAwake Trixie ended up in the roles of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Diamond Tiara, and Silver Spoon (the latter two unAwake)... and the "CMC" decide to run with the gag as far as they can.
    (as the parade float starts careening wildly out of control during 'One Bad Apple', everypony looks at Discord for getting their sabotage instructions wrong)
    Discord: Hey, you asked me to follow a plan and the laws of physics. We're lucky its right side up.

    (as the float is about to head over the cliff)
    Chrysalis: Shouldn't we do something?
    Discord: Oh, very well. (mugging outrageously for the camera) Look at how fast its going! We'll definitely get our race-car building cutie marks for this!
    (the float immediately comes to a halt. Luna trots over to find out what the buck happened)
    Luna: It would appear the wood we used was too fresh-cut. The axle is all gunked up with resin.
    Discord: Murphy and I go way back. He owes me a few favors.
  • Loop 89.15, which pokes fun at the show's habit of having Sealed Evil in a Can just laying around willy-nillynote :
    Twilight: Rarity? You know that book in the Princess's old library? The one behind the secret door, locked iron door, with the staircase that crumbles after you remove the book?
    Rarity: Which one, Twilight? There are quite a few, you know.
    Twilight: The one covered in spikes, containing a spell which grants the caster dark magical abilities but which eventually drive them mad with power.
    Rarity: You're going to need to be a bit more specific.
  • Loop 90.18, where all the loopers play a prank on all the high society ponies at the Gala by pretending it's the end of the world due to Pinkie Pie's mis-baking a dessert - which then starts to emit waves of plaid. All the princesses and other loopers scream, "Everypony out of the universe!" and then stuff themselves into their subspace pocket in such a way that looks like each of the ponies ate themselves completely starting with their tail.
    Prince Blueblood: (running in circles while trying to eat his own tail) How do you get out of the universe? HOW DO YOU GET OUT OF THE UNIVERSE?"
  • Loop 94.2, and Twilight's explanation of why Pinkie Pie is the only mare for a certain job.
    Twilight Sparkle: We mean the real Pinkie Pie. OUR Pinkie Pie. Chaos Goddess of Parties Pinkie. Fun Lord of the Sith Pinkie. The Pinkie Pie that makes shoggoths run gibbering in terror.
  • Loop 98.1, where Celestia demonstrates that after enough Looping even your archvillains just stop being taken seriously.
    Tirek: And do you really think you can win this, little pony?
    Celestia: Oh, I think I can win this *dramatic pause* with a pineapple stuck on my horn! (sticks a pineapple on her horn) Feel free to try and taste my magic! All you'll get now is a delicious pina colada.
    Tirek: ... are you drunk?
    Celestia: (giggles) Not telling! And now, boot to the head!
    (Celestia dropkicks Tirek through a mountain. Cadance, Twilight, and Luna hold up cards reading "7.7", "8.4", and "4.2" respectively.)
    Celestia: Sheesh, family members are the harshest critics.
    • Other scenes from this fight include Celestia reacting to Tirek's Wave Motion Gun by getting out her plasma-proof surfboard and riding the shockwave.
    Celestia: Look at me! I'm gleaming the beam!
    • And the big finish:
    Tirek: (utterly exhausted) I... I cannot best you, Celestia.
    Discord: There are darker, more terrible things in the Multiverse than I, Big Macintosh, and in my last Loop, I witnessed one. Tendrils of wrinkled flesh and writhing dough stretching from city to city, laying waste to all in their path. They don't know of the Loops, and for that we can be grateful, but from what I can tell, their home universe always falls victim to them. Every. Single. Time. The Grandmapocalypse is a terrible thing to witness. Knowing that I was instrumental in bringing it about... there is no joy in that chaos. No new possibilities. Only death. Only cookies.
  • Loop 102.1: Twilight thinks that due to being lodged with the Cakes instead of in the library, and later getting her own house, means that there'll be no reason for Tirek to destroy her library like always happens in the baseline. So what happens? Well, a rogue blast from Tirek blows up Sugarcube Corner, with some of the larger debris hitting Twilight's home and causing it to collapse on the library. Cue Twilight going Super Saiyan on Tirek.
    Not long after, Princess Luna caused a small plaque to be raised on the moon. It read:

    Nightmare Moon
    Sent to the Moon by the magic of the Elements of Harmony
    Got here the hard way

  • Loop 108.7. For some reason, all the Mane Six's pets loop in as dragons. This includes an Awake Angel Bunny, who takes advantage of his ability to speak to tell everyone exactly what he thinks of them... which crashes the Loop.
  • Loop 110.4. As part of a challenge to see who has the wilder imagination, Berry gets high, and sees if Discord is able to keep up with replicating what she's hallucinating. He can't.
  • Loop 110.9. Another drinking game — who's done the oddest thing with the mirror portal from Equestria Girls?. Highlight include:
    • Cadence getting everyone legally married to their counterparts.
    • Pinkie apparently regularly switches places with her counterpart.
    • Chrysalis once used a few trinkets from various loops and her changelings to convince the human Mane Six that they were Magical Girl heroes. And she posed as both the Big Bad and the Team Pet.
      • Another time, during a Stealth Anchor loop, she used the Mirror Pool to create an endless changeling army, dressed them up as Imperial Stormtroopers, and conquered the human world.
    • Berry Punch put her still halfway through the mirror so that the liquor being brewed would dimensionally warp on itself, and so turned 307 Ale into 460.5 Ale.
    • Trixie dropped the mirror into the Mirror Pool to see what would happen...
    Trixie: Standard Trixie outcome number four. Loop crash, then Eiken.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Loops:

  • Jaden redoing episode 1, as the Supreme King in a really bad Kingly accent.
  • Crow's idea of a prank causing a massive free for all battle between Duel Monsters in Neo Domino City. It ends with Yusei getting quite pissed.
  • Joey using a Fire Retardant Coat to defeat Marik. It works.
  • A drunk Yuma dueling the Barian Emperors with 'Rank Random Magic-Booze Force'
  • Jack Atlas's attempt to get a duel spirit, and how it backfired on him.

The Mega Man Loops:

  • Omega's insult to one of the Stardroids:
    Omega: Your designated feminine predecessor was a sub-standard model, and ran Windows Vista!

The Ace Attorney Loops:

The Jojo Loops:

  • Jonathan deciding to screw with Dio during events that Dio would have tried to use to humiliate Jonathan in canon. This includes 'accidentally' tripping him, 'unfortunately' hitting him in the eye, and slipping laxatives into Dio's dessert.
  • Josuke still having his Berserk Button pushed when someone insults his hair, as Asuka soon found out.
  • In Loop 1.7, the Superior Spider-Man has a major beat-down at the hands of Giorno Giovanna. Take That does not even begin to describe the humiliation Giorno put Ock through with very little effort on his part.
  • Mista STILL has an unnatural fear of anything that has to do with the number four. Bruno points out that he should have gotten over this considering how many loops they have been in, but Mista states that on his fourth loop he was killed immediately. Thus solidifying his paranoia.
  • Jo2uke accidentally traumatizing Yuzu by unintentionally flashing her his four balls, causing her brain to short-circuit.

The Fire Emblem Awakening Loops:

  • Upon waking up in the MLP verse for the first time, Lucina meets Twilight Sparkle and soon realizes that she is talking to a pega-pony-princess.
    • The same loop switches Robin and Lucina with Spike and Rarity. The (nonlooping) future kids end up walking in on Grima!Spike feeding grapes to Princess Rarity of Ylisse, and end up confused as hell.
  • In Robin's firstnote  loop as a female, she gets explained to her that because of what the higher-ups did to her and the universe's codes in chapter 2, her gender is now considered one of the universe's variables, meaning that it's up to fate whether Robin is male or female in any given loop. Robin is naturally disgruntled by this, but Chrom shows his support by stating that regardless of Robin's gender, he won't object to anything Robin and Lucina do as a married couple. Robin, while grateful, retorts by informing him that she was Lucina's mother the last time she was a she. Chrom's reaction is hilarious.
    Chrom: "If Lucina was your daughter...then...oh, gods, what?"
  • All of Loop 1.1 is a Crowning Moment of Funny. The best bit is when Validar attacks Ylisstol as normal, only to be stopped by Robin whom politely introduces Lucina and Morgan to him. Validar is visibly confused, and is forced to stop his attack when the Shepards surround him and his troops by surprise.
  • Loop 1.7. Robin may be a good tactician at home, but he's horrible at playing the game he comes from.
  • Pony!Chrom finds Morgan in Equestria. After saying that his special talent is apparently finding amnesiacs, a cutie mark of a book with question marks appear on his flanks. Finding amnesiacs apparently really is his special talent!

The Log Horizon Loops:

  • Naogtsu spots a hot girl and fantasizes about how she'd look in a school uniform, then he realizes that it's a Gender-Bent Shiroe and reaches for Brain Bleach.
  • One-Piece Fused Loop
    • Shiroe replaces Captain Kuro. That's right, he truly became a "Villain in Glasses".
    • After joining Luffy's crew, Shiroe realizes that Luffy shares many traits in common with the former leader of Depauchery Tea Party, and wonders if he has a weakness for this sort of person.

Spyro the Dragon loops

  • Ember's revenge on Classic for keeping her in the dark about the loops for so long. As doubles as Crowning Moment Of Awesome for her considering how Classic also messed with her unawake self early on. Besides managing to beat Classic in a day spent at the arcade, she ends up buying a giant pink stuff panda with the tickets she won. Classic remarks how stereotypical that was... only for Ember too reveal she intends on forcing Classic to carry it home for her, citing his early loop treatment of her as a reason he can't say no. Needless to say, he's horrified by this, but reluctantly complies... only to find out there was more to Ember's revenge than she originally let on...
    A blush blatantly blared on Classic's face, as he carried the stuffed animal on his shoulders. He didn't realize it before, but he now knew the full extent of what Ember had planned for him.
    A kindly old dragoness squealed in delight at the sight before her, and pinched the purple dragon's cheeks as she said:
    "Why, you and your girlfriend are the cutest couple I've ever seen!"
    Struggling to respond due to the old, wrinkly claws on his face, he could barely say, "But I'm not her boyfriend! Ember, tell her!"
    Instead, the pink dragoness shrugged, put on a reserved smile, and kept silent. Ah, revenge was most certainly a dish best served cold.

Miscellaneous Loops

  • The tiny legalese on the Admin's e-mail to the Watchers
    E-Mail: (This is an automatically generated message. Please do not reply to this address, as all responses are apt to be fed to Nidhogg and lost forever to all time and space)
  • Uatu the Watcher's e-mail address: Uatu fingerscrossedoath
    • Heck, the entire E-mail battle between Admin!Thor and Uatu, who on behalf of his entire species doesn't seem to get the whole "free will" thing.
  • Skuld's e-mail response to Admin!Thor claiming the admins have everything under control.
    Skuld: Well, that's lie of the month done. Hope you don't mind waiting three weeks before we engrave your name on the plaque.
