Funny / Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V

Anime

  • 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.
    • Nico Smiley in the dub.
  • 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.
    • Yuya and Yuzu saying they weren't dating. Yuya, however, takes it too far by calling her a crude girl, and gets hit for it.
  • 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 Shuzo 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 Shuzo 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. Her line in the dub just sells it even more.
    Zuzu: Enough with the corny melodrama!
    • "*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.
    • The classic situation Yuya finds himself in, as stated above - first he's merely looking up (after falling on his face) to ask what's with the place + his luck, before his face goes blankly scared as he realizes exactly what it looks like to everyone else, Mieru included. On the sidelines, Tatsuya, Futoshi, and Ayu give their reactions as well, basically disapproving.
      Ayu: The worst.
  • 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.
    • When Shuzou starts the van and they're on their way, Yuzu notices that Yuya isn't there. Cue everyone staring at the empty seat... followed by an epic Big "WHAT?!" from Shuzou.
    • 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.
    • In the dub, Nico just lays on the snark. "I'd say this fellow needs no introduction, but then I'd be out of a job!"
  • 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."
    • After another one of his temper tantrums, Ayu and Futoshi are making honest-to-god DUCK FACES in the crowd.

    • Shun Kurosaki refuses to participate in the Action Duel opening chant.
    • Sora saying he'll show a real Fusion summon and Masumi being insulted by that.
    • There's a little girl in the crowd who cries multiple times when some of Sora's monsters leave the field.
  • Episode 34, though no less bleak for it, features a blink-and-you'll-miss-it line in the dub from Nico Smiley:
    Smiley: "The whole audience is thrilled - except for that little girl!" (as the scene pans to show a bawling kid being soothed by her parents)
  • Episode 35:
    • 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 38:
    • 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.
  • Episode 39: Kachidoki is informed Xyz monsters don't have Levels, and he goes, "Wouldn't they be Level 0!?"

    • Yoko finds herself caught between cheering for Michio and her own son.
  • Episode 42:
  • Episode 43:
    • 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.
    • Dennis' blocking Yuya every time he tried to defend himself against Takeda and Umesugi's Action cards.
    • Dennis' getting frustrated at Takeda and Umesugi for interrupting this conversation with Yuya.
  • Episode 44:
  • Episode 45:
    • Dennis trying to keep his cool while his deck is giving him very bad cards against Serena but flat out color fails when he draws a Polymerization and has no other option than to play it safe.
    • Also Gongenzaka's frustration with Teppei refusing to duel him and the audience's annoyed reaction.
  • 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.
    • Mieru stomping Gongenzaka's face with her foot while trying to reach Yuya in the middle of the whirlwind made by Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon's summon.
    • 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. ((You could argue that he may have used A Wild Monster Appears! to summon it with no effort whatsoever, but that shuffles it back into the Deck during the End Phase. Considering how many monsters the Obelisk Force had later, and how the Moth was still present, it seems more plausible that the student somehow summoned Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth the legit way.)
    • When Yuzu and Serena decide to meet Kurosaki, Yuzu suggests that Serena switch clothes so the Academia doesn't find them. She quickly is about to take off her jacket in front of Yuzu and Tsukikage. Yuzu takes them to hide so Tsukikage doesn't peek.
    • Yugo arrives and it appears his Running Gag will be people getting his name wrong or mistake him for someone else.
  • Episode 47:
    • As the crowd rages about all the dueling feeds being cut late into the night, pan down to Nico sitting in the middle of the dueling field grumbling he doesn't like it either, because he can't do his job if he can't see the duels!
    • Halil and Olga's bobsleigh crash. Unfortunately, Mood Whiplash kicks in when Yuri seals them into cards.
    • Obelisk Force running like Naruto.
    • A member of Obelisk Force getting Yugo's name wrong. Yugo responds by trying to run him over.
    • Crosses into Mood Whiplash territory but after being saved by Yugo, Yuu Sakuragi runs away in an absolutely sissy way.
    • 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 49:
    • A more meta moment but after episodes of replaying the "egao" scene, in the episode with the word "egao" in the title, they don't play it.
    • Sawatari's "Oh Yes" after they beat the Obelisk Force.
  • Episode 52:
    • Yoko chasing her son with a motorcycle that makes funny noises.
    • The way how Yoko takes control of Yuya's monsters. Her Biker Goddess Red Queen the Legendary Boss makes a Nightmare Face and scares the hell out of Yuya's Tiger Soldier and Helprincess. When they are on Yoko's side, those two make "I'm sorry" gestures.
    • The whole Smile World scene.
    • Yoko, when she chases Yuya, yells ORAORAORAORA!!
  • Episode 53:
    • Everyone reacting negatively to the fact that Yoko dueled Yuya so she could tell how she and Yusho met.
    • Odd-Eyes and Smile World, that is all.
    • Yoko's reactions to being directly attacked, now know where Yuya gets it from.
    • Yuya meeting an bandaged up Gongenzaka the next day.
    • Sawatari being the glory hound that he is, dubs the Pendulum duelist generation as the Shingo Sawatari generation, but Gongenzaka rebuts that Yuya was the first Pendulum user, all the while Yuya looks like he just doesn't care.
  • Episode 54:
    • Yuzu wakes up to find Yugo's face a few inches away from hers, causing her to scream and knock him away. He doesn't understand what he did wrong.
    • Yugo getting pissed when Yuzu mistakenly calls him Fusion.
    • Yugo's complete embarrassment when Yuzu thought Rin was his girlfriend. But based on his reaction, he probably wouldn't mind it.
  • Episode 55:
    • Poor Yuzu's reaction to riding on Yugo's D-Wheel. She nearly started crying due to how reckless he is.
    • 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 Roget 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.
    • "I use the villainous Pendulum Summon!" Cue the 'PENDULUM' readout appearing in sinister purple flames.
    • During the street performance, some of the bills left in the hat have Jaeger's face on them.
  • Episode 58:
    • Gallager getting annoyed with Dennis and Gongenzaka and resorting to dragging them by the collar.
    • Kurosaki getting mad at Dennis for pointing out his Raid Raptors have low attack.
  • Episode 59:
    • Crow and Yuya's argument and duel was something you would expect out of Crow and Jack back in 5D's.
      • To the point that the kids call both of them children. Even Reira is giving them a "what the hell are you guys on about?" look.
      • Crow saying his dueling is Hungry Dueling to match Yuya's Entertainment Dueling.
      • Yuya and Crow saying Reira is on their side only for him to bashfully ignore them, causing the both of them to feel bad.
    • The girl fangirling over Kurosaki and Dennis, much to her boyfriend's displeasure.
  • Episode 60:
    • 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 to Yuya as his best friend and then to Sawatari as... not his best friend.
  • Episode 61:
    • When Sawatari comments on Tokumatsu's hatred of being praised, he states the entire point of dueling is to get praise, to which Gongenzaka quickly replies that's only true for him.
    • When the prisoners are cheering for Yuya to Pendulum, the scene randomly cuts to Kurosaki in solitary.
  • Episode 62:
    • Yuzu and Yugo's application papers for the Friendship Cup has the contact section filled with "Dunno" and "Nah" respectively.
    • Discover Hippo was hilarious this episode, particularly when he was expecting Yuya to send him to the ship that Sawatari's card created and give him a cool armor. Hippo was even stretching and jumping before he realized Yuya didn't send him, which makes him cry in anger and disappointment as a result!
    • After Kurosaki escapes solidarity confinement, he beats up every officer in the way, much to Gongenzaka's amazement; then, when an officer wakes up, Gongenzaka promptly knocks him out with his sandal (which is 100% metal!).
    • 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.
    • While Tokumatsu's lackies are throwing out all the rare cards he collected over the years, we get a shot of Sawatari picking some of them up. Yuya's reaction is priceless as well.
    • 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, mistaking her for Rin, before taking a hard look at her large fan and drawing back instantaneously, then telling her that he knew she was Yuzu all along.
    • Yugo and Yuzu's entry forms for the Friendship cup which look 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.
  • Episode 63:
    • When Sawatari guides Tokumatsu and Yuya through a ventilation shaft saying they could completely trust him and that he was going to lead them to freedom, he gets them on the top of the tower, which Tokumatsu lampshades.
    • After Sawatari exited the shaft, he takes some time to pose. Which is ruined when Tokumatsu pushes him out of the shaft.
    • When the Lancers are captured and brought in front of the Executive Council, Sawatari explains that Lancers stand for Lance Defense Soldiers, but Tokumatsu is skeptical, since that would make Sawatari a soldier.
    • When Kurosaki summons RR-Rise Falcon, the arrest cops try to take control of it as his monster can take control of any monster who's level is 8 or less. When Kurosaki explains that his monster has Ranks, not levels. One of them repeats Isao's words, "But wouldn't that make their level zero!?"
  • Episode 65:
    • When Yuya is calling out to Yuzu, struck in his room, he does a little dance.
  • Episode 66:
    • Crow freaks out when he sees the kids running around, to the extent that he's still freaking out during the versus splash.

    • Frank, Tanner and Amanda trying to see the Friendship cup by sitting on their shoulders and pretending to be an adult and it works, for about five seconds, before the disguise falls of, causing them to run.
    • After an entire episode of the kids being chased by the security, they notice the security was too focused on the duel and forgot all about the kids.
  • Episode 67: Two moments in a very dark and bleak episode.
    • Yuya's reaction to Tokumatsu's visit, and him failing a metaphor to the point Yuya tells him to drop it.
    • Melissa's reaction to Tsukikage taking Reira's place.
  • Episode 68: There is something funny about Tsukikage jumping out of his D-Wheel to snag an action card during his duel with Shinji. And no one bats an eye.
  • Episode 69:
    • A quick shot of the Lancers reacting to Yuzu's reappearance is spoiled by Sawatari complaining about how he didn't get to duel yet.
    • The start of the Riding Duel, when both Tokumatsu and Yuzu have no idea how to ride a D-Wheel and freak out. Once again, even the versus splash is hilarious.
    • Tokumatsu's continually apologizing when he gains the advantage, to the point Yuzu starts to get creeped out.
    • Yuzu using Futoshi's catchphrase.
    • After the duel, Tokumatsu asked if Yuzu was Yuya's sweetheart, he was hit over the head as a result.
  • Episode 70:
    • Melissa Claire wondering if Serena and Yuzu are sisters after noticing their resemblance.
    • The audience leaving and completely ignoring Melissa Claire when she tries to start a Crowd Chant of "The City is One!"
    • Sawatari getting mad about not dueling, only to get his dinner and decide to forgive whoever is facilitating the Friendship Cup.
    • Yugo pigging out on his dinner, which is immediately contrasted by Yuzu eating delicately.
  • Episode 72: Its a duel between Yugo and Sawatari, there was no way it wouldn't be funny
    • Sawatari seemed to think no matter what he wouldn't be on soon, so when he was called, he complained why would Shingo be next instead of him, Sawatari Shingo. It took him a while before he realized he had been called.
    • Sawatari accidently doing a wheelie and getting ahead of Yugo.
  • Episode 73: Yuya is moved by Reira's message and wants to thank Reira and promises he'll beat Jack... Only to be told that it's impossible. To deliver that message because Reira already went back in to the hall. Yuya's expression and the soundtrack are what carry the moment.
  • Episode 74:
    • Dennis being a Chick Magnet with admirers in the crowd. Too bad the funny goes away...
  • Episode 75:
    • Despite the rather serious and somewhat disturbing tone of this episode, it did have one, possibly unintentional funny moment to it. When Kurosaki manages to save himself with Raidraptor - Last Strix, Dennis responds by having Ancient Gear Chaos Giant attack it, since it can attack all opposing monsters each battle phase. How does it do this? By literally poking it.
  • Episode 77:
    • Melissa Claire was hilarious this episode from revealing herself to be a bit of a Yuzu fangirl. Also the unimpressed faces she makes when commentating about Sergey's 0 ATK monsters and then her disturbed face when she notices that he actually enjoys being bound.
    • Yugo's Big Eater moments. He has food stuck to his face for basically the entire episode.
    • Sergey tries to go for an action card at one point. When he tries to lean sideways to grab it, his Duel Runner's side spikes cause it to launch into the air and tumble around like a tumbleweed.
  • Episode 78:
    • Both times Silver Claw's attack was negated by Bee Force Nest, it had a rather funny expression as if saying "Damn it..."
  • Episode 79:
    • When Timesword Magician was hit by Hama's arrow due to Hama's effect, he nonchalantly removes the arrow from his arm while looking annoyed.
    • Roget's almost child-like excitement when Yuya synchro summons Enlightenment Paladin.
    • Crow is completely dumbstruck by Yuya summoning Enlightenment Paladin. His expression is priceless.
  • Episode 80:
  • Episode 81:
    • Before the duel, Melissa explains that the course gets changed so that a certain someone won't destroy the City.
    • Crow can't quite wrap his mind around Raidraptors - Rise Falcon's effect.
      Crow: There's limits to how broken a monster's effect is, you know!
    • Raid Raptor Avenge Vulture's defense of 100 being inflicted to Kurosaki is shown by it ineffectually pecking his helmet.
    • Frank calls Kurosaki out for being a Jerkass after losing everything at the hands of Academia when he's gone his whole life worse off and hasn't done anything bad. Tanner and Amanda then promptly shoot him looks as he admits that yes, he did steal food sometimes.
    • Roget is obviously lying and insincere as he talks to Yuya, but he lays it on so thick, telling Yuya his duels touched his heart, that he wants to create an ideal world, that he's from Academia, but the City changed him, that it becomes absurd.
  • Episode 83:
    • Bloom Prima dancing with Frightfur Chimera. Yep, it makes no sense—a beautiful lady dancing with an Eldritch Abomination made of four toys attached to an anvil while looking totally happy. What really sells it, though, are the completely dumbfounded expressions on the Goyo Defenders before they get destroyed by this weird combination.
    • Sora teases Yuzu that she doesn't have her elbows out enough for the Fusion hand clasping. Also Heartwarming.
  • Episode 84:
    • Nearly every interaction Serena and Yugo have is hilarious.
      • When Yugo first sees Serena, he mistakes her for Rin and he runs to hug her only for Serena to punch him back. Yugo then talks in a deeper voice and asks one thing then he gets right up in her face and asks if she's really not Rin, causing Serena to punch him again. As we zoom out we see Yugo does this 5 more times.
      • Just as both Serena and Yugo are riding to see who will get the first turn, Yugo is behind Serena but he is able to speed up like crazy and get the first turn. Why? Because Serena was impressed by Yugo's dueling in his match against Sawatari, saying she expected great things from him. Yugo then imagined Rin saying that, making him so happy that he accelerated.
      • When Serena first used Polymerization, Yugo screamed that wasn't his name only for Serena to yell back to shut up as it was her turn.
  • Episode 85: When Yugo and Serena are shaking each others' hand, Yugo has to ruin it by calling Serena Rin again. Serena responds with a fist to the face. Melissa Claire even lampshades it.
  • Episode 87:
    • The first part of Yuya's first turn was hilarious as Yuya summons Discover Hippo and four Hippo Tokens and Crow follows up by summoning three Blackfeather Tokens causing a huge amount of noise.
    • A borderline Narming example, but Yugo and Yuri going berserk in public, yelling and playing cards against nobody has this kind of effect to the viewers. Notably, you can see a few passengers when Yugo stops in the middle of the streets, which means they can actually see and hear him.
  • Episode 88:
    • Sora being pushed around like a rag-doll by the ominous wind when Yuya summons Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon is pretty funny in a otherwise dramatic moment.
    • Melissa, understandably, freaks out upon seeing Sora holding onto the wheel.
  • Episode 89:
    • After snapping out of the Berserk State, Yuri is genuinely confused as to where he is and what he's doing.
    • Yuri's shocked face.Priceless.
      • Not to mention the fact that even he can't resist making a Yugo/Fusion pun. Yugo's reaction is exactly what you'd expect.
      • When Yugo starts ranting about Yuzu, Yuri decides he's had enough and leaves.
    • There's something almost cute about one of the Obelisk Force duelists scratching the underside of Ancient Gear Hound Dog's metallic chin and the giant killer robot dog moving its head like it enjoys having its chin scratched.
      • One of the Triple Bite Hound Dogs bugs out when it gets attacked.
    • Sora's shit-eating grin when he's about to sic the Obelisk Force mooks' own Hound Dogs on them. Followed by a very appropriate Mass "Oh, Crap!" from said mooks.
    • There's an extremely brief Blink-And-You'll-Miss-It moment: when the final Hound Dog is destroyed by Chimera, it makes this face.
  • Episode 90:
    • Sawatari and Gongenzaka are carrying a large metal object before hearing from Crow that Serena and Reira are in danger of being captured by Academia. Gongenzaka drops his side of the metal and lets Sawatari crash to the ground. Given how big Gongenzaka is, he probably could have carried it by himself; Kurosaki was even shown carrying huge debris himself. Sawatari is just that weak.
    • As Kurosaki is punching and kicking anyone who stands in his way to freedom, Sawatari is seen behind him barking out orders and pretending as though he's helping. Kurosaki finally has enough after a while of this and notes aloud that he's doing all the work.
    • Kurosaki and Sawatari get cornered by a group of facility guards and raise their Duel Disks to face them. When we cut back to them later, Kurosaki finishes them off and this exchange ensues:
      Sawatari: (getting up from the ground) What a bunch of pushovers!
    • Gallager's Epic Fail when he tries to capture Kurosaki, Sawatari and Tsukikage and ends up crashing into an electrified set of bars. Later when he tries dueling them, he's overrun by Duel Chaser 227 and his army of Security mooks.
    • Also Awesome, but when Sora is running through the rooftops, he thinks that Yuya won't be able to hold off the Obelisk Force on his own. Cut to Yuya using Odd-Eyes, Dark Rebellion, and Enlightenment Paladin to utterly wreck three of the Obelisk Force.
  • Episode 92: In an otherwise dark episode, Yuya plays a spell card that can destroy one of Sergey's cards, while he has a trap that can negate it. He assumes that Yuya will use it on one of his Earthbound monsters. Yuya using it on his field spell causes Sergey to error out for a few seconds and miss the timing on his trap.
  • Episode 93: When Sawatari protests against Yuya relegating the job of Reira's babysitter to him, Tokumatsu tells him that the one who takes care of the Lancers' leader's little brother will surely have the biggest chance of becoming leader himself. He buys it for real.
  • Episode 94: The reactions of Sergey and Roget as the duel between Jack and Sergey comes to its conclusion: Sergey, as always, starts screaming how "beautiful" Jack's style of dueling is and turns up his hamminess Up to Eleven. On the other hand, Roget starts flipping his s%#t when he can no longer control his top pawn and Sergey ends up losing. While normally a very satisfying Villainous Breakdown, it becomes hilarious due to Roget's voice reaching a high pitch, making him sound more foolish than threatening.
    • Some of Sergey's facial expressions this episode bear an uncanny resemblance to Chronos de Medici. Not exactly the most threatening thing in the world.
  • Episode 95
    • Sawatari constantly having to stop Tokumatsu from trying to stop the riot with his Enjoyment duel. Naturally the one time he gets away from Sawatari, he gets taken out by a stray blast.
    • Sawatari stealing Melissa's microphone to give it to Yuya.
  • Episode 96: Sawatari Leaning on the Fourth Wall and commenting when Yuya makes a good play; "I'd have done that too." When Yuya appears to have screwed up he comments, "I'd never have done that!" But when it's revealed that Yuya is all good, he chimes in, "I knew he'd do that."
  • Episode 97:
    • Melissa comments that Jack won't even let Roget interfere in the duel and comments that you can feel Jack's passionate will in how he plays. Cut to Roget screaming, "SHUT UP!"
    • Roget when he is told there are intruders in Security HQ and the Mind Control is disabled.
  • Episode 98:
    • During Yuya's turn, Melissa notices the traffic full of D-Wheels and Security. She then notices the air traffic, full of planes and helicopters in the sky. What's even funnier is as Yuya merges, the traffic behind merges with him.
    • When Yuya makes his final move, Sawatari declares that he will name the move after Yuya - only for Gongenzaka to cut in with the moniker "Straight Pendulum". Sawatari's reaction really must be seen.
    • After the duel is over, Yuya calls Jack King, only for him to scream he's not the king anymore with the tried and true JACK ATLAS brand of ham, freaking out Yuya! Especially since he immediately moves on to a normal indoor voice.
    • There's just something inherently funny about Roget screaming "THE FUN IS JUST GETTING STARTED!" in full Sanity Slippage mode in the preview of the next episode.
    • Jaeger makes a cameo. Drinking Champagne and eating ramen.
    • Gongenzaka's Manly Tears for Yuya's victory begin to soak Sawatari and the random security guy.
  • Episode 100:
    • Sawatari hallucinating about water and making a fool of himself in the middle of the streets. Later when Yuya and company hide out at a family's house, Sawatari and Gongenzaka argue about whether or not to feast on the emergency rations.
  • Episode 101:
    • Yuya tells Kaito that it's wrong to card people. Sawatari agrees. Gongenzaka points out that Sawatari was about to try and do the same thing.
    • When Sawatari challenges Kaito, he insists on reciting the Action Duel motto from back in the beginning of the series. Yuya and Gongenzaka join in, both with expressions that scream "I can't believe we're doing this." Made even better by Kaito's (lack of) reaction: even in the versus splash, he doesn't announce "DUEL!" alongside Sawatari (contrary to the rest of the series), instead looking like he's wondering just what the hell is wrong with these people.note 
  • Episode 103:
    • After Allen greets them, Sawatari comments that Allen is talking to him (calling himself ore-sama) so informally already. Gongenzaka tells him to cut it out and chokes him out in a Funny Background Event.
    • Sawatari still has no idea who Yuto is.
  • Episode 104:
    • A mixture of both funny, sad and heartwarming at the same time but the scene where Yuya is wandering around the old remains of Yuto's duel school and finds a locker with Yuto, Ruri, and Shun all squeezed together in a picture. Ruri looks extremely happy between her two most precious people, with the pragmatic Yuto making an expression screaming "Why am I here?" and the stoic Shun looking flustered.
  • Episode 106
    • Yuri proves to be The Comically Serious when he duels against the You Show Duelists. One summons Ojama King, causing him to burst out laughing. Then, Ojama King brings forth Ojama's Yellow, Green, and Black to block Yuri's Card Zones. Yuri is literally pissed off and disgusted at the same time.
      • Though it is sorta Mood Whiplash, whereas Yuri held Sadistic Glee in attacking the other monsters, when he attacks Ojama King, he just looks disgusted that he is actually having to attack it. Not to mention Ojama King visibly runs away from Starve Venom's tail. Becomes Mood Whiplash immediately after.
    • Yugo's arrival. He charges in when he sees Yuri, causing Yuzu's bracelet to make Yuri disappear. When he notices Yuzu, he starts blubbering, then tries to hug her as he starts crying and his nose starts dripping. Yuzu and Asuka are understandably grossed out. The best part though, is Yuzu whipping out her Paper Fan of Doom on Yugo, with Asuka struggling to hold back her laughter.
    • Grace calling Noro "Noroma-chan" (blockhead) in front of the Professor without any rebuke is worth a chuckle for the implication that the Professor either doesn't care or agrees with her. For that matter, Leo slouching on his throne.
  • Episode 107
    • Though just annoying and hateable in his debut, Noroma-chan is hilarious this episode. The expression he pulls when he sees the Tyler sisters dueling the Lancers is hilariously over-the-top, and his covering-up from Aster (who's probably too preoccupied to care) is rather amusing.
    • Gloria's insults (which generally get left to Grace) due to tapping her head while calling Allen stupid.
  • Episode 108:
    • Despite it's dark and serious appearance, Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon shows it's Not So Above It All either when joins in on the egao.
      • Yuya's entire final turn is hilarious in its absurdity: We have Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon and Raidraptor - Rise Falcon being crammed into rockets that should not reasonably be able to fit them being launched at Amazoness Liger, which gets a target around its neck just because, and ending off with the three monsters taking a bow. Made better by the contrast between Gloria's bemusement and Grace's borderline Squee!.
    • Despite being Smug Super Arrogant Kung-Fu Girls, the Tyler Sisters end up being bewildered by Yuya's Entertainment Dueling after losing to him and Kurosaki. Made even funnier when Grace is screaming "No way~!" in the giddiest manner.
  • Episode 109:
    • Grace's general giddiness and excitement after having seen the egao and being interested in Yuya's duel.
    • When the Obelisk Force show up and Noroma-chan explains that the Professor sent them just in case, Gloria is pretty damn insulted. Grace just points out that they did lose.
  • Episode 110:
    • Grace is now officially Yuya's fangirl. She doesn't care about Lancers going away or her and her sister losing,and ignores Gloria's attempts to distract her from Yuya's duel. She even cheers for Yuya!
    • Noro chants for Edo to lose for him to keep his reputation in front of Professor. Except that he is saying it out loud and Gloria(already a bit annoyed because of Grace's antics) totally calls him 'the lowest'.
      • An on that note, all of his hilarious faces. You just can't look at this guy without thinking how stupid he is!
    • It's quite hard not to let a laugh or two during Ed's meltdown.

Openings and Endings

  • 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.
  • From the third ending, "ARC of Smile!": it 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.
  • In the fourth opening "Kirifuda", there is a scene of Yugo trying to get a better look at some cheerleaders before Yuzu comes flying out of nowhere and hits him over the head with her trademark fan before rapidly disappearing. The look on Yugo's face afterwards as he looks around for the source will have you rolling on the ground with laughter; it's like his face is saying "What the hell was that?!"
    • Even funnier is how Yugo is the only silly person during the first part of the opening. Yuya, Yuzu, Serena, Kurosaki and Crow all look confident and serious as they gear up and prepare to ride their D-Wheel. Yugo prefers to ogle cheerleaders while relaxing. It's almost as if Yuzu smacking him with her fan is saying "Don't ruin the moment!"
  • In the fourth ending "SPEAKING", Sawatari wakes up to a sleeping Serena next to him and he tries to kiss her, only for Serena, who's still sleeping, to nonchalantly hit him in the face.

Manga

  • In chapter 7 when Yuto and Yuzu are infiltrating the Leo Corporation, they both wear suits to the building. Yuzu is going on about how she's always wanted to wear a suit while Yuto is having second thoughts about the plan. Yuya then proceeds to tell him that he looks good in a suit, and he admits to himself that stoking Yuto's ego is a good way to pacify him.
  • Chapter 9, Yuzu is very disappointed that Yuri's Predator Plant Chimeraffesia was not a hottie, and later Yuri asking Yuya if she'd be okay if he left, considering she likes hotties.
