* Ito's tendency to mock his own horror art by pairing it with mundane topics, especially in relation to overplaying his own behavior like one of the dersnged deranged obsessives in his stories.


* The entire concept of "Ice Cream Bus": [[spoiler:after eating ice cream and taking rides in an evil ice cream bus, children eventually turn into piles of ice cream.]] A scene of particular hilarity is after [[spoiler: the protagonist finds his son licking piles of ice cream in their apartment, his son tells him that all of his friends have turned into ice cream, and his head immediately falls off mid-lick and melts on the floor.]]
* In "The Long Dream", when one poor guy falls asleep, his dreams take him through up to ten years of doing terrifying or monotonous activities. Most of the dreams he describes are unpleasant or horrible, but then he mentions one where he spent "eight years searching for a toilet that doesn't exist. How do you think that feels?" The official translation implies that the dream is the agony of never being able to find a restroom when it's needed, but it's still funny from our end.
* In "Splatter Film", the entire concept of something squashing everyone who eat certain honey flat into pancake can borderline BlackComedy through sheer ridiculousness [[spoiler:even when not counting the dimentional-hopping tree as the culprit]], but then FridgeBrilliance kicks in if we making sense the analogy of the deaths from an off-hand remark in the manga. [[spoiler:Try to imagine that the tree is a human, the honey is its blood, and people who ate the honey are mosquitoes, and we have the exact same scenario. HumansAreCthulhu, indeed.]]
* "[[http://mangafox.me/manga/itou_junji_kyoufu_manga_collection/v16/c003/1.html A Shit To Remember]]". Blatant ToiletHumor? Yes. [[PlayingAgainstType Not usual for Ito]]? Yes. A funny little story? ''Yes.''
** For those who don't want to actually see, it's a short story about the main character (who's probably a younger Ito) talking about how he went to an Autumn festival and came across a stall selling literal shit ([[spoiler:well, rubber toys that looked so much like shit that the main character was convinced for a bit]]). The main character goes into detail about how this wasn't a cartoon depiction of shit; it wasn't coiled like a snake, but he goes into [[SarcasmMode exquisite]] about how it was two ropes overlapping one another, how its color looked fresh, about how, compositionally, it was "independent yet intertwined" and "perfectly balanced". What follows is a HurricaneOfPuns about shit [[spoiler:where, if taken out of context, just sounds like a potty-mouth wanting some nondescript thing]], how he sought his mom's advice about buying that shit (she simply tells him "So buy it."), how he tried to convince others that he was buying it as a joke, and how everyone would now know him as various insults relating to him buying that shit. Eventually, he (quite literally) loses his shit.
* In the AnimatedAdaptation, Shuuichi makes a cloth dummy of his teacher. The quote while teaching science class sells it.
--> "So basically, this goes like this, and that goes like that."
* In "The Town Without Streets", Auntie Tamae is entirely too comfortable with her lack of privacy and is gleefully topless. When she's questioned by her shocked niece about her undress, she has this hilariously inappropriate response: "Your auntie's still got it, huh?"
