Funny: Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V

  • General:
    • In general how the characters mistake Yuya and Yuzu's dimensional counterparts for each other. Especially when they look very different. Even Yuya and Yuzu get mixed up.
    • Yuzu's reaction to everything seems to be to smack it with something... usually a paper fan/harisen. Including her own father.
    • The facial expressions, just, the facial expressions.
    • One from the first ending One Step: In one scene, Yuya, Yuzu and Gongenzaka are hitting a melon while blindfolded. In the next, they're eating the melon, and Yuya has a massive bump on his head, while Yuzu's looking quite sheepish.
    • The third ending, ARC of Smile!, shows Sawatari fleeing for his life from giant billiard balls, and later getting run over by a boulder.
      • The entire ending itself is just random and funny Bait-and-Switch Credits with a lot of Cosplays.
      • Near the end they show head shots of all the Lancers smiling. Tsukikage is smiling through his mask!
      • And at the group shot in the end, Kurosaki is predictably standing to the side and looking dead serious, away from the other Lancers.
  • Episode 2: When Yuya is defeated by Yuzu, he gets thrown into the air, slams straight into the sky, and lands upside down in a bush, with only his legs visible. Then the bush fades away, but he's still practically faceplanting the same position.
  • Episode 3: When Yuya's sleeping in class muttering the words "Pendulum Summon," you know how this is going to end.
  • Poor Entermate Whip Viper gets cartoon-style flattened twice in the same turn, and the second time, it's clearly going Oh, Crap! Yuya himself ends up faceplanting into a wall during one of these incidents.
  • Episode 4: Sawatari attempting to outrun the explosions of his own monsters' destruction, only to be tossed around like a rag doll.
  • Episode 5: The montage of Sora trying to talk with Yuya was hilarious. Highlights include Sora appearing under Yuya's desk during class. One had Sora finding Yuya on the toilet. Yuya wasn't very pleased.
  • Episode 7: Yuzu pretty much derailing all of Sawatari's dramatic speeches in the guy's second appearance.
    • And on that note, all of his dramatic speeches.
  • Episode 8:
    • No one bothers to pay attention to Shuzou's summoning lessons, the highlight being Sora interrupting it by eating two donuts, comparing it to Fusion Summoning. Shuzou is not pleased.
    • Sawatari's lackeys claim that thanks to "Yuya" (actually Yuto), Sawatari has suffered terrible injuries. Cut to Sawatari having mostly recovered and happily chowing down on melons.
    • Gongenzaka claims that he will duel alongside Yuya and Yuzu against the LDS students. Cue Sora pointing out that Gongenzaka doesn't go to their duel school and that he'll be taking Gongenzaka's place. Gongenzaka is speechless.
      • Made even funnier when combined with Episode 10, where Sora just sits by a wall eating his lollipop and lets Gongenzaka Duel Yaiba anyway, simply because he "didn't feel a good matchup from the guy".
    • Another from Sora. He calls Reiji's mother an old hag as she explains the rules for the school duels, forcing Yuzu to pat his head to calm him down. It's Sora's facial expressions that sell it.
  • Episode 9: Hokuto's stunned expression when Shuzou stupidly picks a Star-based field.
  • Even the bit of drama from Episode 10 has some light moments, two of which are given to us by Masumi, the Gem-Knight LDS student. The Ship Tease of Yuya and Yuzu is provided by her, and she also manages to put Hokuto into a corner weeping, via being a Deadpan Snarker.
    • Before the duel starts, Yuzu is embarrassed by her father when he picks Crystal Corridor for the field.
      • The fact that Shuzou picks another fitting Action Field for both opponents again. For the last one, he mutters even Yaiba's name and thinks about a fitting field, not realizing that he gives another field advantage to the LDS students.
    • And on the note of putting Hokuto into a corner, Masumi does it again in Episode 11, this time with the expression signs piercing Hokuto.
  • Episode 14: Yuya defeats Shuzou with an attack that sends him flying, Yuya holds him in his arms as the man dramatically gives last words and pretends to die. Yuya falls for it and gives a Skyward Scream... then Yuzu angrily smacks her dad with her fan.
    • "*Manly fainting noises.*" Explanation 
  • Episode 15: After Yuya finishing saying how grateful he is to Gongenzaka for always helping him, Yuzu leaves to ask Sora to teach her Fusion Summoning, though Yuya doesn't know the real reason. The three kids tell him it's because she was mad because he forgot to say he was grateful for her help too. Yuya freaks out over these and tries to backpedal, only to be informed that it was too late.
  • Several scenes from episodes 16 and 17. To wit:
    • Yuya's stomach growling at various points and the various reactions to it, i.e. Ayu taking a page from Yuzu's book and yelling at Yuya.
    • Yuya's mom completely fan-girling over Michio saying that he'll cook Yuya and his friends a meal after the duel ends.
    • Odd-Eyes happily eating a lot of spaghetti.
    • Michio realizes that he is going to lose and accepts it like a man... then he is comically smashed by a giant hammer.
  • Episode 18: Yuya's reaction to Sora putting chocolate on sardines.
  • Episode 19:
    • Yuya's next opponent is Eita Kyuando (Q&A-ta) with a quiz focus.
    • On the bus, Nico is sitting on top of the seat. When the bus stops, he flies forward. It then cuts to a sign that says 'Please Sit on Seats Correctly,' showing the stick figure sitting exactly how he was.
    • Yuya's utter failure to answer any of the quizzes. Most notably the 300 kg question.
  • Episode 21:
    • Gongenzaka asking Yaiba for assistance. Except, when he first shows up, he looks like he's going to throw Yaiba (who's half his size) through the damn wall, what with the flames and everything. Yaiba understandably looks like he's about to soil himself.
    • This was most likely not intended to be funny, but out of all the ways Shun Kurosaki could have dramatically come out to confront Masumi, he chooses to do so by running forward and ramming Yuzu out of the way with his Duel Disk arm.
    • In a similar vein as above, Yuto's solution of punching Kurosaki in the gut to knock him out after interrupting Kurosakis confrontation with Masumi, while informing him that Yuzu is not Ruri.
    • Masumi's reminiscences of Professor Marco are ridiculously shoujo and filled with roses and sparkles, making it hilarious.
  • Episode 22:
    • En (His corgi) waking Yuya up by sitting on his face. Or more like landing on his face.
    • Yuya being disturbed by all the macabre, occult stuff.
    • Sora's face when he yells at Yuzu to get to his final duel to watch it.
    • Mieru's imaginations of her fated person and her Nose Bleed reactions.
    • Yuya's terrible unluck. He oversleeps, he hits his head under his desk, he trips and falls down the stairs, is accused as an pervert, gets wrong coin side, has a dead opening hand, is glared by thirteen black cats, he trips without any reasons, he draws the Action Trap "Terrible Unluck", and his two strongest monster are switched to defense position.
      • Although by hitting his head on his desk he accidentally put the Fusion card in his deck which was what he needed to win the duel.
  • Episode 23:
    • Sora is in an action duel where to describe whatever action they do, the players sing.
    • The climax of the duel, where Mieru suddenly begins seeing Yuya in Bishie Sparkles as he teasingly calls her "Miss." And then he winks at her, and she collapses into a field of hearts as her Life Points hit zero.
    • After Yuya beats Mieru, she becomes smitten with him, calling him her fated one. Yuzu reacts as expected.
    • Even funnier when Mieru interrupts a moment between Yuya and Yuzu, the background music screeches to a halt.
    • Or after Mieru asks when will she meet his parents and how many kids he wants. Yuya screams he'll change fate.
    • This is made more hilarious when it's show all of this happens while Yuzu lands a hard smack of her harisen on Yuya's head...while Mieru is still snuggling him.
  • Episode 24:
    • Yuya mock strangling Sora after the latter wants to throw a celebration party for qualifying.
  • Episode 25:
    • When looking for everyone, Yuya for some reason, felt the need to look under tables and in the fridge.
    • As well as in the toilet. For his dogs.
  • Episode 26:
    • Yuzu and the kids freaking out when Yuya uses his Pendulum Summon for Hip Hippo of all things at a critical point in the duel. Ironically, this is what allows him to win.
    • After Yuya wins, we have a shot of Gongenzaka glomping Yuya as manly tears run down his face. Yuya is trying to get out of it.
    • After Shuzou is being too well Shuzou, Yuzu uses her trusty fan to smack some sense into him.
  • Episode 27:
    • Shuzou is so happy that all of them (i.e Yuya, Yuzu, Sora and the three kids) that he goes to Bear Hug all of them. They dodge, he goes flat on his face, and is run over by a bike.
    • Shuzou then gives them a Hot-Blooded speech about winning, while they are all calmly filing into the van, ignoring him.
    • Mieru makes an appearance calling Yuya 'darling,' Yuzu goes Burning with Anger, scaring the kids.
    • Yuya is chosen to make a speech and is unceremoniously picked up by security guards and thrown onto the stage. You could hear everybody else there laughing.
  • Episode 28:
    • Reira's completely unenthusiastic participation in the action duel opening chant.
    • Sora has Yuzu listed in his phone as "Disciple No. 1" and the contact picture is her smacking Yuya. Then as a funny throwback to episode 22, Yuzu is now the one yelling at Sora to stop wasting time and come see her duel.
    • Ayu's doting father obsessing over her cuteness is a little too much for Sora, who tells him to give it a rest at one point. (Albeit off-screen).
    • Ayu acting adorable in general is enough to give Sora and Futoshi sugar poisoning.
  • Episode 29:
    • Masumi tells Yuzu, "Your eyes have no luster.". Yuzu gets embarrassed by that.
    • Sora gets irritated when Kurosaki leaves without watching the ending of Yuzu and Masumi's duel.
    • If you look closely every time Shuzou is excitedly cheering for his daughter, Yoko is awkwardly smiling at him.
  • Episode 30:
    • Shuzou cheers on Gongenzaka to be Hot-Blooded, only for him to end his turn. Sora points out he had already attacked and couldn't do anything else.
    • Yaiba's, Masumi's and Hokuto's reactions towards Gongenzaka's Tuner monster being taken from him, especially Yaiba's who yells at Gongenzaka that he better not lose.
    • How Gongenzaka gets his black sash. Lets just say we know were he got his ham tendencies from.
  • Episode 31:
    • Sawatari's Incoming Ham moment. He calls himself Neo New Sawatari, Yuya points out they mean the same thing.
    • Sawatari tries to list the reasons for his grudge against Yuya, only for him to shoot each of them down.
    • The LDS trio's constant commentary on Sawatari's hamminess.
    • Sawatari stealing Yuya's Catch Phrase.
  • Episode 32:
    • When the duel starts to not go his way, Sawatari pouts and stamps his feet like a spoiled child...which he probably is in all honesty.
      Sawatari: "Stop messing around! You're not allowed to excite the crowd!"
      Yuya: "This is my dueling style!"
    • The LDS trio compliment Sawatari's change...and then get Dull Eyes of Unhappiness and comment, "Even if it's Sawatari."

    • Yuya, Yuzu, and Gongenzaka summing up the Mind Screw of the previous 34 episodes to try and figure out what's going on, and Gongenzaka freaks out because he doesn't understand it.
    • Des-Toy Scissor/Frightfur Bear makes hilariously narmy sounds this episode.
    • When Sora demands that Yuto take him to Kurosaki to settle the score. Yuto's response?
      Yuto: "That's already been settled: You lost."
    • Sora's tantrum in general.
  • Episode 36: Yugo's debut which involves him smashing into a street light camera with his D-Wheel and then complaining about it. He then does a double take when he notices Yuto a few feet away.
  • Episode 37: Any moment where Yugo gets offended by being called a Pawn of Fusion.

    • Mieru suddenly coming out of nowhere, crying and calling out for her ailing darling and then taking over Yuzu and Yoko in nursing him.
      • Following with Yuzu and Yoko teaming up to get Mieru out of the room.
    • When Yuya comes too and goes to the MCS, he effortlessly dodges Mieru's attempt to glomp him, giving her a Color Failure. He also ignores Hokuto's gloating when he's asking the LDS trio if he can talk with Kurosaki. Yuya is totally serious during the whole scene.

    • Dennis' Big Damn Heroes moment loses some of its epicness when a penalty results in Dennis losing 2000 life points and he falls flat on his face. Takeda, Umesugi AND Yuya all Sweat Dropped at that.
    • Dennis' dramatic draw, with slow-mo and sparkles, being completely ignored because Takeda and Umesugi are more focused in destroying Yuya.

  • Episode 46 has a surprising number of funny moments.
    • The audience is irritated the only duel being shown is Michio's duel versus Halil and Olga. Except for Michio's fangirls. It then appears that Yuya's mother is upset they aren't showing her son. Only to reveal that she wanted to see more of Dennis.

    • When Mieru, Gongenzaka, Michio and Teppei hold down Berserker Yuya, Yuya bites Teppei's hand and gives him an uppercut.
    • Teppei trying to be his conniving self and Yuya and the rest flat out ignore him.
    • A more meta example: While the LDS students are fighting the Obelisk Force, you can see that one of the students somehow summoned Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth. Let that sink in for a moment.

    • Yuzu once again confuses one of Yuya's doppelgängers (Yugo this time) for him. While holding his face.
      • A bit Hilarious in Hindsight; earlier in the same episode, she mistook Yuri for Yuya and believes that he's Yugo before she actually met Yugo.
    • Mieru sees Yuzu with Yugo and she goes Burning with Anger, assuming that Yuzu is cheating on Yuya. When she tries to leave and tell Yuya, she slips and ends up with her head stuck in the ice.
  • Episode 48:
    • Yuya's mom acting serious for a second, then annoying everyone again by thinking Yuya and his friends are sharing a meal with Michio.
    • We have Sawatari's glorious return. He does the same thing as Dennis, saving Tsukikage's life at the price of 2000 life points.
      • Let's not forget that Reiji, apparently filled him in about everything, except that particular detail about the life points penalty.

  • Episode 54:

    • Yuya and Serena, Sawatari and Reira arrive at the Synchro Dimension surrounded by Security where they try to catch them due to Yugo and Yuzu's Riding Duel. Yuya is attempting to reason what's going on when Sawatari being Sawatari picks a fight that Serena joins, leaving Yuya speechless.
  • Episode 56:
    • EVERYONE's reaction to Yuya's Entertainment Dueling. They all look so weirded out by Yuya riding his Discover Hippo.
      • Special mention goes to the fact that because the video footage was gone for a while, after the connections were restaured, the very first thing Roger saw was a close up to the Discover Hippo face, he doesn't react much but it's still hilarious
    • Sawatari being the Small Name, Big Ego that he is says the he "let himself suffer an OTK" to teach Yuya how to beat them. Or that he says when Security surrounds them, he says how lucky that he already lost already, or he would beat them all.
  • Episode 57:
    • Sawatari introduces himself to Crow as an an undefeated duelist and Yuya as his disciple. Yuya isn't amused.
    • Nearly every moment of Gongenzaka and Dennis's interaction from Gongenzaka's completely deadpan "Ladies and Gentlemen" compared to Dennis being his usual hyperactive self. Or Dennis initially playing up Gongenzaka as the villain during the duel. Gong isn't amused.
    • Yugo trying to warp dimensions with his Clear Wing only for him to stand there awkwardly as the card doesn't do anything. Yuzu isn't amused.

    • The blonde security guard is playing Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Wheelie Breakers on a handheld system.
    • Kurosaki got himself thrown in solitary almost immediately upon getting to the prison due to getting into a fight with 10 guys. What's funny is of course just how amazingly typical this is for him.
    • Sawatari produces some of the episode's funniest moments, suggesting to Gongenzaka's lackies that if they want him to sit down they'd better bring him a sofa, and delivering an epic speech to the dinner disher filled with rude and arrogant pronouns, which doesn't work in the slightest.
    • When said lackies figure out that they're trying to bully Gongenzaka's acquaintances, they're mortified and promptly start bowing and apologizing.
      • In addition to this, when introducing Yuya and Sawatari to his lackies, Gongenzaka refers Yuya as his best friend and then Sawatari as...not his best friend.
  • Episode 61:
    • When Sawatari comments on Chojiro's hatred of being praised. He states the entire point of dueling is to get praise, which Gongenzaka quickly replies that its only true for him.

  • Episode 62:
    • Yuzu and Yugo's application papers for the Friendship Cup has the contact section filled with "Nah" and "Dunno".
    • Discover Hippo was hilarious this episode from his expectation of Yuya sending him to the ship that Sawatari's card created and giving him cool armor. Hippo was even stretching and jumped before he realized Yuya didn't send him to Sawatari's ship and was crying as a result!
    • After Kurosaki escaped solidarity confinement, he beat up every officer in the way to Gongenzaka's amazement, when one officer wakes up, Gongenzaka without missing a beat knocks him out.
    • We cut to Serena actually pouting in her room before Dennis arrived.
    • Sawatari actually helping out Crow and Shinji by throwing a cooking pan in the face of a rather muscular security's face. Only for the Security to show that he wasn't knocked out but is instead very pissed.
    • When Chojiro's lackies are throwing all the rare cards that he collected we have a shot of Sawatari collecting some of them.
    • Yugo makes the mistake of saying that Yuzu should be able to wear Rin's clothes as they should be the same size (While clearly looking at her chest). It results him in Yuzu hitting like crazy with her fan.
    • When Yuzu walks in with Rin's clothes on, Yugo runs to hug her. Thinking it's Rin, before seeing the large fan and quickly lies that he knew it was Yuzu.
    • Yugo and Yuzu's entry forms for the Friendship cup which look like absolutely ridiculous due to Yugo's horrible hand writing. And on Yuzu's form, he started writing Rin's name first before crossing it out and on home address, he wrote Standard before crossing that out and wrote classified.
