* When you fight Krystalinda, if she attacks you but you parry the blow, she will stumble and fall on her staff. You might wanna watch a gif or a video of it to really know what it looks like.

* Avarith is Avarice with a lisp.
** You know what? Avarith in general. Sure she's played for Nightmare Fuel but her design is so unoriginal and the fact that she takes stuff just because it'll cause the misery of others is, although a bit scary, kinda funny if you think about it.
*** The last part about Avarith is bit more of confusing funny but she takes barely any damage from regular attacks and takes a lot of damage from spells.
* Jade beating the shit out of Booga. Also a bit of Nightmare Fuel.
* The Mardi garb costumes. You just can't help but laugh. But you won't be laughing any longer when you find out you can't sprint while in the costume.


* One of the tasks in Rab's Switch character quest is to pick someone to participate in Octagonia's tournament. That one of the choices is a bear is funny enough, but you can actually force the ''chancellor'' to head off to the ring if you want. He even somehow ends up winning, by cowering and letting the other fighters take each other out, and ends up with an entourage of female warrior fans for it.

** The moment Hendrick pieces together who Sylvando is, he reaction is beyond priceless.

* In Sniflheim, you can receive the Puff Puff treatment. As with everywhere else in the game, it's a BaitAndSwitch - it's just the sound that accompanies the makeup treatment. ''[[GameplayAndStoryIntegration Which permanently increases the Luminary's Charm stats.]]''

* While it's during a rather tense moment of the story, there's still something intrinsically hilarious about Carnelian's [[spoiler: (Read: Mordegon's)]] [[PerformanceAnxiety unbelievably bad acting]] [[spoiler: after the Luminary goes back in time to stop his triumph]] as he [[DidntSeeThatComing frantically tries]] [[DeceasedFallGuyGambit to cover]] [[ImplausibleDeniability his ass.]]

** The "Rough 'n Tumble" Pep power - the Luminary and Erik have a high-speed fight to boost their evasion and counter rate...while Sylvando pops in and out of view blowing kisses to the camera and doing slow-mo backflips, while sparkling.

* The description for the "Adventure Awaits!" trophy/achievement reads "Awarded for receiving a warm welcome to Heliodor."... as in your player character has just been tossed into the dungeon for presenting himself to Heliodor's king, Carnelia, as the Luminary. Doubly funny if playing the [=PS4=] version, which snaps a screenshot along with the trophy showing the character in his prison cell.

** Shockingly enough, the Definitive Edition has his Master Peng drop less than subtle hints that she was no stranger to perversions in her youth (her acting as a Bunnygirl in Rab's sidestory was too good to be a mere act).
** Later in the game, the normally deadly serious Hendrick has a split second pleased reaction upon finding the same magazine. [[OutOfCharacterMoment He even names the EXACT issue]].

* Upon traveling back in time to before Jasper and Mordegon's attack on Yggdrassil; the major difference is that the Hero now has the [[UnholyHolySword Sword of Shadows]]. The party has some choice comments on the ObviouslyEvil EvilWeapon; with Erik reminding the hero that he's supposed to be a good guy; and Sylvando advising him to let him come along next time the hero goes shopping; because that sword with SpikesOfVillainy and [[EyesDoNotBelongThere an eyeball in the hilt]] is ''tacky.''
* Square-Enix seems to want to beat out Nintendo in making sure the monsters, even the bosses who try to be sinister, have [[PunnyName punny names]]. The monster whose m.o is to trap people inside paintings? "[[Literature/ThePictureOfDorianGray Dora-in-Gray]]."

** Speaking of Don Rodrigo, going back to Puerto Valor after Act II reveals a scene of him and Sylvando's entourage practicing a dance routine in the same Mardi Gras outfit, with Sylvando blinking audibly at what he sees. While he denies enjoying dancing, the entourage mentions he's doing a full routine for Sylvando and Sylvando, while ecstatic Don Rodrigo is doing it for him, also makes sure his father promise to do it as per the knight's vow.
** His "Hit Parade" Pep Power involves him summoning said parade (and his burly pink-clad helmsman, Dave...from as far as ''halfway across the world'') to stampede the enemy; the Luminary also dons his uniform for this. It makes for a fabulous moment of levity if you happen to use this to defeat, say, the FinalBoss.

* After the battle defending Last Bastion with Hendrik, if you go and talk to Gemma, she ends up having a adorable FreudianSlip no matter which option you pick when she asks how you're holding up. If you say "you're well", she cheers up and says "That's ''her'' Luminary" while, if you pick "not well", she'll offer to kiss you to make you feel better. In both cases, she ends up realizing what she said and starts stammering to explain.

** Another highlight is when you reunite with him in the second part of the game: he's been going around in a more flamboyant outfit and has been going around to try and bring smiles to anyone he meets, even acquiring a group of like-minded men to help him. He then puts you into a ridiculous getup and has you head to Phnom Nonh as the head of his little parade, the outfit even makes you ''wave cheerily'' the entire time you're wearing it. This sequence was even slightly modified in the Switch version [[DevelopersForesight to account for party members following the hero outside of battle]]. Seeing [[spoiler:Hendrik]] in a full clown costume is a very jarring sight.

* Upon reaching the Royal Library in Snifleheim, Party Talk will show Rab being engrossed in what he calls a "spellbook". After acquiring the Blue Orb, Rab goes into an rousing speech about finally reaching the WorldTree, finger pointing at the sky and everything... and drops the "grimoire" i.e., ''a porno magazine''. The party's disgusted reaction is side-splitting, with Jade noting that the old man has not given up on his "obsession" and Veronica pointing out how [[MoodWhiplash weird this is after his speech]]. While the company leaves him in his shame, Rab desperately tries to convince them the he ''[[IReadItForTheArticles only reads it for the articles]]''.

* The "Fly-By-Me Knight" Pep Power - the Luminary runs off while Hendrik and Jade jump off into the sky. She then proceeds to throw Hendrik with such force, he begins to fly off at incredible speeds... and she lands on him, making her best [[Manga/DragonBall Tao Pai Pai]] impression. Then Jade throws him ''again'' at The Luminary, who then casts a spell that turns the knight into solid steel, then they both give the Heliodor salute as Hendrik is careening into the unfortunate enemies as an impromptu missile. It's as glorious as it is ''freakin' insane''!

** Sylvando decides to mock Avarith by giving her "something warm, soft and fragrant", and greedy as Avarith is, she eagerly grabs... what turns out to be horse manure. Sylvando literally gave her shit. It even plays the "getting a plot important item" sound as it's revealed.

* ''Sylvando''. Pretty much nearly any scene where he gets to go full Camp is nothing short of hilariously fabulous. The highlight would have to be when he returns to meet his father, Don Rodrigo and convinces him to take care of his entourage, which involves dressing his stuffy, knightly father in a rather loud, Mardi Gras-style outfit.
