Funny: Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V

  • 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: 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.
  • 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 in 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.
    • 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 placed near the microphone. 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.
    • 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 slash. Lets just say we know were he got his ham tendencies from.

    • 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."

  • Episode 35: YMMV on these, but:
    • 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.
