* Chapter 9 also features Cao Cao's recruitment portrayed in a...very modern sense. Complete with job fairs and a discussion of gaps in a resume vs "volunteer work".
* Chapter 11: the cliffhanger is once again resolved in an anticlimactic fashion, this time with Mi Zhu's introduction. Even the characters are unimpressed.
--> '''Tao Qian''': No offense, but the hurricane would have been a much better cliffhanger.
* On a meta level, the extremely similar names can sometimes be kind of entertaining. Particularly funny is when Lu Bu's [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor former bosses]] are listed off and two characters named Yuan Shao and Yuan Shu come one after the other.
* Chapter 12 features a minor character named '''[[Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse He Man]]'''. Come on, tell me you didn't chuckle at that one.
* Chen Gongs first evacuation of Lu Bus wives and daughter? Heroic. The fact that hes described as packing up said wives and daughter again later that chapter? Hilarious.
* Zhang Chaos overdramatic suicide, prefaced by the fact that he points out he's against some pretty dramatic deaths. Definitely black comedy; definitely hilarious.
* Its first revealed in Chapter 13 that the story has death scene judges. Zhu Juns death scene only scores a 3.2.
* Emperor Xian's reaction to his first taste of porridge.
--> '''[[PickyEater EmperorXian]]''': I know Im fleeing for my life and lost all my attendants, but Im still the Emperor! I cant eat regular people food!
** It's times like this when you remember that Emperor Xian only ''is'' a child or perhaps a preteen at this point.
* Liu Bei is very nonplussed by Ji Ling's weapon.
--> '''Liu Bei''': Wait, why is your sword a triangle? How does that even work?
* Chapter 15: Sun Ce taunts Taishi Ci's troops with a "nyah, nyah!" He gets a "neener, neener!" in response.
* The ''brutal'' deconstruction of the effectiveness of single combat, also from chapter fifteen.
* Another one from chapter 15 when Yuan Shao doesn't even bother justifying holding the Emperor's Seal anymore.
--> '''Sun Ce''' (reading a note from Yuan Shao): What does he mean, insert generic excuses here?

* The increasingly terrible omens dealt to Dong Zhuo in Chapter 9 are dismissed quite humorously.

* Chapter 4. Yuan Shao writes to Wang Yun to attempt to get rid of Dong Zhuo. What does he say to convince him? "We should totally just STAB DONG ZHUO!"

As a very snarky satire of ''Romance of the Three Kingdoms'', this work basically runs of RuleOfFunny.

* Chapter 7. Clearly Lu Gong forgot his plot armor.
--> '''Lu Gong''': But Im a named character! I just got introduced!

* Also from chapter 4. Wang Yun wants to do something, so invites his friends to a birthday party to talk to them. He ends up bursting into tears over Dong Zhuo's evilness, which his friends think is because he's sad about getting older. The kicker?
--> '''Wang Yun''': It's not even my birthday!
