Alan's route. "Were you wearing stripper clothes?"
Then there's him in the "Christmas with The Captains" spin-off...
My Forged Wedding
Not ten minutes after meeting the protagonist and asking for an unspecified favor, Takao proves that lawyers are not immune to foot in mouth disease. What sells it is the epic facepalm reactions from the other guys at Takao's total and utter lack of game.
Takao: Please become my wife! Protagonist: Huh? Yuta: Whoa! Saeki: Ha! Yamato:Seriously? Ren: ...Wow.
In Takao's first sequel, the protagonist bunks at Kunihiko's bar for a while due to Takao's fears for her safety. Kunihiko gives the couple an excuse for some alone time by suggesting Takao help the protagonist change the light bulb in her room, which is sweet. The absolutely merciless peanut gallery heckling that Takao catches from the rest of the guys afterwards for taking two hours to change a single light bulb, on the other hand...
Addendum to the above: When Kunihiko first makes his suggestion, everyone immediately catches on... except for Takao, who is only too happy to help his lady love change a light bulb, should she need it. Much sniggering ensues in the aforementioned peanut gallery.
Saeki does not fire on all cylinders first thing in the morning. This can lead to the following semi-conscious tirade after the protagonist's first night in his apartment:
Saeki: (half-asleep) Where are my socks? Protagonist: I changed all of them to toe socks. Saeki: Toe socks!? I guess they're good for cold weather. But I don't like how they look. They're far from fashionable. I will not accept them as socks! Protagonist: *cracks up*
In Saeki's second sequel, he eventually finds himself falling face-first into the role of doting father (much to the protagonist's amusement), and shows up at the school play of the child he's been looking after with a whole bunch of new cameras to capture the play for posterity. The hilarious part, however, is in the email you get from Yamato afterward. Apparently Saeki called Yamato at the crack of dawn with some half-coherent request for advice about cameras. Yamato draws his own conclusions about why Saeki would need a camera that can record video without shaking.
Seduced In The Sleepless City
In Your Arms Tonight
On Koichi's route, finding herself lost and alone in the forest, the protagonist panics at a noise nearby and chucks a rock at it - and ends up clocking Koichi square in the head. Schadenfreude at its finest.
Protagonist: I thought you were a bear!
Be My Princess
In Keith's wedding sequel, they decide to produce collectible merchandise to release as part of the wedding celebration. Keith, struck by inspiration, insists on coming up with a design for hand towels - an incredibly tacky and overdone design emblazoned with the words "4 Eva Love". Nobody else present can find a single good thing to say about it, and Keith is so obviously proud of it that all of them, except for Laura, spend several minutes desperately trying to find a way to break it to Keith gently enough to avoid sending him into a temper.
The kicker comes later, on the day of the wedding: the protagonist is stunned to learn that Keith's hand towels, which they ended up releasing along with the more tasteful coffee mug they came up with, have completely sold out. As the royal couple are paraded down the streets of Liberty Kingdom, she sees many onlookers happily waving the towels like flags.
In the GREE version, Keith spots the protagonist crying in the garden, and informs her that soppiness doesn't suit her:
Keith: You're not some meek little bunny. You ought to be fierce and unexpected. Like a raccoon. Maybe one with rabies.
Jan is an absolute master at handling Joshua, and is not above using his powers for evil. Like convincing his somewhat sheltered master that a bright red bobble hat is a traditional disguise.
Love Letter From Thief X
In Tatsuro's epilogue, the Black Foxes end up with a copycat group, and are deeply insulted that they're not even competent copycats. For one, they misspell their signature as "Block Fox".
Hiro: What are you supposed to do with a block of fox anyway? Takuto: Deep fry it?
Riki + alcohol = Hilarity Ensues. As Atsumu puts it, Riki can keep his cool until he's safely home with friends, but then the booze hits him all at once. In Takuto's stories, he gets several moments when he starts acting like a clingy little kid because Takuto (his lifelong best friend) pays more attention to his girlfriend than Riki nowadays. It's as adorable as it is hilarious.
Atsumu's phone has custom ringtones for each of the Black Foxes. Hiro has a j-pop song, Kenshi the theme to a Super Sentai knockoff, and Takuto gets Beethoven's Fifth. Riki? The Imperial March.note Well, "Dark Vader's" theme from in-universe equivalent "Moon Wars" anyway. The protagonist congratulates Atsumu on nailing the boys' personalities.
In his "What if...", Hiro's thrilled to be playing the much-pursued lead character in a romance movie ...until it dawns on him that it's a (PG-rated) Boys Love production. The comedy begins, however, when the other Black Foxes show up on set to help out with the infiltration, and instead get volunteered to play Hiro's love interests. Cue the single most awkward movie production ever, with production assistant Atsumu on the sidelines laughing his ass off and egging the director on.
My Sweet Bodyguard
In Katsuragi's epilogue, the protagonist's father and grandmother each separately give Katsuragi their tacit permission to sleep with the protagonist. Her grandmother does so by setting up their futons right next to one another, rather to the protagonist's embarrassment.
Upon first meeting Katsuragi and having the protagonist's situation explained to her, Kosugi immediately launches into a spirited rendition of "I Will Always Love You" at the top of her lungs.
Toru Kurosawa, steel-hearted defender of public order, meet roller coaster. Roller coaster, meet Toru Kurosawa.
Kurosawa: We're going to DIIIIIIEEEEE!
In his route of the Shanghai side story, Subaru (who is clearly too cool for such things himself) rolls his eyes at the protagonist's panda obsession, only to fall prey to Cuteness Overload when the baby pandas are brought out.
Protagonist: They look so fluffy. Subaru: Yeah... Protagonist: They drink so much milk. Look! They're playing together! Subaru: Yeah... Protagonist: I think pandas are the cutest creatures in the world! Subaru: Yeah... Protagonist: Subaru? (He's barely paying any attention to what I'm saying) Subaru... Did you know, pandas are an elephant's best friend. Subaru: I heard. Protagonist: Did you know they like to eat meat? Subaru: Yeah...
Subaru's route of the "Merry Christmas" side story. Breaking out the handcuffs and getting frisky with your girlfriend only to be walked in on by your boss, who is very unhappy to see you treating a valued client that way? Bad. Having to chase after your boss after he leaves to get the keys to the handcuffs because you don't have yours with you? Worse. Opening your Christmas present from your boss and discovering that it's a spare set of handcuff keys? Priceless.
In Katsuragi's route of the Valentine's Day side story, Subaru as usual feels the need to 'help' his boss pick a gift for the protagonist - this time suggesting a chocolate fountain. And then, for shits and giggles, he convinces Katsuragi that the Chocolate Fountain is some kind of amazing theme park roller coaster, sending him on a wild goose chase that lasts up until Valentine's Day itself when the protagonist finally finds out what Subaru told him and manages to set him straight. The crown on the gag, however, comes that evening when a delivery arrives at Katsuragi's apartment: a home chocolate fountain machine, accompanied by a note from Subaru reading, "I hope you have a great Valentine's Day. P.S. How many theme parks did you visit?"
Katsuragi: I really hate him sometimes.
A Knight's Devotion
Early in Gaia's route, a stray cat takes a shine to Gaia and stubbornly (and adorably) refuses to be shooed off no matter what Gaia tries. Eventually he just gives up and resigns himself to the cat coming along with them, leading to the other knights watching in fascination as their stern, stoic commander tries to drive their carriage with a cat clambering all over him. It even perches on his head, at which point not even Lute can keep from laughing.
Also in Gaia's route, the Absurdly High-Stakes Game of cards between Gaia and Marco... both of whom are well-known to their companions for their abysmal luck at games of chance.
Every time the guys of the New Business team - a collection of handsome, powerful, well-educated and sharp-dressed men, the cream of their industry - start gushing over clothes like a bunch of enthusiastic teenage girls, it's utterly priceless. Especially on Junya's route, in which their project centers around bridal gowns, and on Shingo's, where it's fashion lingerie.
In Ryoma's route of the "Summer Vacation" side story, he and the protagonist attend a summer festival in her neighborhood, only to realize that Shingo, who lives in the area, is there as well. Cool, classy Ryoma doesn't miss a beat - he grabs a mask from a nearby vendor and puts it on to hide his face. The hilarious part is that the mask is added to his sprite, causing him to spend the rest of the scene acting as though nothing is out of the ordinary with a completely ridiculous-looking bright green kappa mask hanging off the side of his head.
At the end of Goda's route, the cast attend a party to celebrate the grand opening of Infinite's New York store. Cue Shota and Koji being swarmed by women who declare them adorable, with the other guys left watching in disbelief from the sidelines. The hilarity is compounded later in the evening when a mildy shellshocked Shota and Koji pretty much come running back to their co-workers for protection from the attentions of forward Western women.
Goda's route used to open with an unintentional one. Goda is assigning tasks for the latest project in the New Business department, and the protagonist notes that he's very easygoing, to the point of nicknaming everyone in the departments (except Ryoma). The protagonist even wonders if Goda knows their names. The nicknames are amusing enough (Shingo is "math whiz", Junya is "pretty boy", and so on), but what elevates the scene to unintentional hilarity is when he turns to the protagonist. In the original release of his route, an error in the translation rendered the chosen name for the protagonist as "[USER_FIRST_NAME", confirming her fear that he doesn't know their names. This was fixed in a later update, but the error has been recorded by many for posterity◊.
At the end of Ryoma's sequel, he and the protagonist finally get a moment alone together after being apart for almost the entire route. It's a sweet, emotional moment... until the new store launch event going on downstairs erupts into cheering. Only then do the two of them realize that Ryoma's lapel microphone is still broadcasting, and Kerry Wang is gleefully making their reunion part of the event.
In the "Devil's Work" side story, Kakeru's attempt to brief Haruhito on his temporary job as a high school teacher goes off the rails almost immediately thanks to Satoru's suggestion that the protagonist pose as one of his students, which gets all of the guys fantasizing about her wearing a schoolgirl uniform. Then Kakeru explains that she'll actually be posing as a Health Education teacher... which sets everybody off again, this time imagining her as a sexy school nurse.
Protagonist: Stop giving him ideas, you guys!
In Kakeru's sequel, he and the protagonist are splashed with an angel-made poison designed to harm demons. As the resident expert on angel weapons, Haruhito is brought in to assess the situation. It's quickly determined that Kakeru will be just fine, but as for the protagonist... Haruhito starts dithering, noting the significant differences between demons and humans, while Kakeru grows more and more agitated. Eventually, Haruhito cheerfully admits that since the poison was made for demons, it won't affect humans at all.
Kakeru: Why didn't you tell us that first!? Haruhito: But you're so funny when you're desperate!
In the "Black Valentine's Day" side story, Kakeru has some trouble wrapping his brain around the custom of giving chocolates, particularly once it gets into the distinction between obligatory chocolate and the heartfelt handmade chocolate given to the one you love.
Kakeru: Wait, chocolates don't contain souls. This is confusing.
Kiss Of Revenge
In Junpei's Another Story, he tells the protagonist to pick a place she'd like to go out to on a date, but given how limited her life has been since her mother's death, she has trouble thinking of anything. So she asks Ayame for advice. Comedy ensues.
Ayame: Whatever, have fun. You're adults, you don't even have to go anywhere. Just get a hotel. Protagonist: (Nothing good is going to come of this.) Ayame: I expect a full report.
At the end of Irie's Another Story, several chapters of doubt, insecurity, and jealousy are finally resolved with the reveal that, no, Irie didn't have another woman on the side that he was trying to hide from the protagonist: it was his old mentor Dr. Kowatari and his cat. Kowatari proceeds to regale the protagonist with every embarrassing story about Irie's childhood that he can think of.
The comedy doesn't stop when Kowatari finally leaves the two of them alone together:
Protagonist: You're jealous of an old man? Irie: Interesting for someone who was jealous of a cat to say.
The morning after, the protagonist makes breakfast for Irie... an omelet. With peas in it. While there are instances in several other Voltage games of the protagonist trying to make her guy's hated vegetable into a dish that he'll like, it's clearly not so in this case - she's just doing it to troll him.
Issei demonstrates how far he's come in his Another Story epilogue:
Ayame: I'm sure you two have a lot to talk about, right? Go, make out.
Protagonist: Hey, we're not...
Issei: [puts his arm around the protagonist's shoulders] Thank you, we will.
Dreamy Days In West Tokyo
At the end of Haruki's sequel, Haruki and the protagonist stay overnight in a hotel where they decide not to have sex yet. Upon their return, their friends assume the obvious. Rihito and Ichigo both flee from the couple, shouting about how the protagonist is no longer the little girl they remember. Ryuzo, completely confused by all this, announces that he has no idea what's going on and then runs away as well.
Ryuzo: I don't know what's going on, but I don't wanna be left out!
In Ryuzo's route, dinner at the Hatta family residence gets distinctly awkward after Ryuzo finally becomes aware of the protagonist as a potential girlfriend and becomes unusually nervous around her as a result... and then Rika decides to tease him by claiming she has a love letter to deliver to the protagonist from one of her classmates. Hilarity Ensues, especially when Ryu's father Ryozaburo and his other siblings Ryunoshin and Rino get into the act:
Ryozaburo: So, what does all of this mean? Does this mean [protagonist] isn't going to marry me?
Ryuzo: [Protagonist] and I aren't even going out!
Rika: Nobody said anything about you. She could marry Ryunoshin for all you know.
This is far from the only time someone shamelessly uses Ichigo's tsundere crush on the protagonist against him. His own parents do it to him later in the route, and it's still just as funny.
On Takeshi's main route, Haruki keeps falling into a flailing panic at the mere thought of his little sister growing up and (horrors!) having a boyfriend. Ichigo and Rihito have far too much fun with this.
The end of Rihito's sequel. As always, the new couple will be spending the whole day together, and everyone else is left to imagine just what a pair of teenagers might get up to in that time. The guys are suspicius (and kind of panicked), Rihito is hilariously smug, and Ryuzo immediately goes into overprotective-but-dim-big-brother mode, bless him.
Ryuzo: W-what should I do!? What if they start holding hands on their next date!?
Taketo: I know. I could tell you've had that going on. And I know it's awkward of me to blurt this out this late in the game. But I had to get it off my chest...
Protagonist: Uh, Taketo? Were you listening to me?
The moment he gets it through his head, the entire group breaks out into applause, all of them having been shamelessly looking on throughout the entire conversation, to Taketo's great embarrassment. Kanji then leads the gang in literally marching the couple up to the hotel roof, where he takes it upon himself to organize their First Kiss.
Our Two Bedroom Story
In one route, we get this gem from Kaoru and Shusei:
Kaoru: How far did it go?
MC: The Fifth—
Kaoru: Fifth base!?
MC: The Fifth Amendment says I donít have to answer that!
And this in Kaoru's route:
Minato: What; did Kirishima finally make a move on you?
Akiyoshi: Hey! Don't spit out your coffee,Kaoru!
Minato: Sorry, I didn't think it'd fluster him that much.
Chiaki: I've never seen him like this.
MC: Um, I need to leave for my interview now!
Shusei: Ah, she ran away!
Minato: Don't worry. We'll get the truth out of Kirishima.
Kaoru: Oops, I have to leave for an interview now, too!
Kissed By The Baddest Bidder
The Tres Spades penthouse crew are unused to seeing Soryu take any kind of interest in women, so they watch the development of his relationship with the protagonist closely and with gleeful fascination. When, in his epilogue, they discover that he has yet to take her on a proper date, they all but gang up on him to insist that he rectify the lack immediately - and the day after the first date has occurred, they sit the protagonist and a mortified Soryu down to grill them both eagerly for all the details, like nothing so much as a bunch of gossipy schoolgirls.
In Soryu's sequel, the protagonist ends up at a shooting range, and while they're there Soryu offers her the opportunity to fire a gun herself. She's incredibly nervous about it, and Soryu's warnings about things like what the recoil could do to her if she doesn't keep a proper grip on the firearm don't help - and then she pulls the trigger, and a "Bang!" flag pops out. Such a cartoonishly silly gag enacted by Soryu and his crew of tough guys, of all people, comes from so far out of left field that it's an absolute killer.
Baba's first epilogue. The protagonist is worried about Baba's womanizing ways, and the guys decide to help make sure she's the only thing on his mind. Their "help" comes in the form of a sexy cop outfit.
Protagonist: There's not a chance in hell I'm wearing that! Ota: Why not? You always wear a maid's uniform. Protagonist: Because that's my job, Ota! I work here! As a maid!
Operation: Seduce Baba is a resounding success, however. Baba is thrilled with the outfit and runs off to get a pair of handcuffs to complete the ensemble.
