Funny / Bleach

Go To
With its lovably quirky, eccentric and pleasantly over-the-top nature, Bleach always had a nice feature of making things funny in otherwise serious moments, without ever detracting from the actual situation or alienating fans from the overall mood of a scene. As a very nice bonus its characters are very easy to make fun of, which the author and producers themselves take every advantage from.

  • First, Uryu and Orihime are fighting over an old Japanese proverb. Orihime thinks it's "even cats don't eat childish fights", whereas Uryu thinks its "even cats don't eat children's fights." Sado then corrects them both. Orihime is thankful, but Uryu is just catatonic.
    Uryu: Orihime's craziness is getting to me... and to be corrected by Sado of all people...
  • Second, Orihime says that she knows Ichigo is nearby — after all, she can smell him! The other characters look at her like she's just said the stupidest, Cloudcuckoolander-iest thing she's ever said (as she's about ready to jump out the window and they're on the second or third floor, and she's supposedly flashing the quad), then "Ichigo" leaps up to the window...
  • Third, or actually the zero, since it predates those two. The whole Amazing Headband of Justice scene.
    Urahara: Oh, what do you know. I can't believe he actually said it.
    It eventually ends with...
    Ichigo: "Amazing Armor of Justice" my ass! More like armor of junk!

  • In one of the early chapters of the manga, Rukia tries to train Ichigo using a baseball pitching machine and baseballs filled with pepper, half with heads drawn on to represent Hollows, the other half with hands to represent Wholes. When he gets back, Rukia chews him out for missing the whole point of the exercise — he hit all the balls instead of just the ones with heads. Ichigo retorts that, with her drawings, it's impossible to tell the heads and the hands apart. And he's right.
  • Ichigo's reaction to finding out Rukia is now in the same school as he is.
  • Before going to Soul Society, there's a funny moment where Urahara sends out a blood message to Ichigo's house... and then...
    P.S.: If you think this is something from a horror film where people write messages with their blood... then you really have no sense of humor.
    • The Japanese version ups the funny by having Shin-ichiro Miki (Urahara's seiyuu) speak in a real deep, scary tone... until the 'no sense of humor' part where he switches back to his normal wacky Urahara voice.
    • Made funnier in both versions by the fact that this is almost word for word what Ichigo and Orihime did think.
    • Advertisement:
    • In the Manga, when Ishida shows up at Urahara's shop and Ichigo comments on his Quincy uniform:
      Ichigo: Ishida, you... Did you walk all the way here wearing that weird clothing? You're very brave.
    • The icing on the cake is Chad, who, when asked how he'd been the first to arrive, mentions that he was out for a walk when he got the message. He then points thirty feet behind them, where the message is splattered on the ground.
  • In Chapter 73, Jidanbo's 10 strike attack actually has more than 10 strikes because Jidanbo has difficulty counting to 10 and starts repeating numbers
    • and after Ichigo breaks his axes, Jidanbo starts sobbing.
  • When Ichigo meets up with Rukia for the first time in the Soul Society arc and simply states that as the rescuee she has no say whatsoever in what happens to her.
    Ichigo: I came here to save you, and that's what I'm gonna do. Oh, and from now on, I'm ignoring all your opinions. You're coming with me whether you want to or not, damn it. YOU GOT THAT?! HUH?! I'M THE RESCUER HERE! YOU JUST SHUT UP!
    Rukia: Wha...? What'd you say?! Who do you think you are, ordering me around like that?! A RESCUER ISN'T SUPPOSED TO IGNORE THE RESCUEE!
    Ichigo: YEAH?! AND WHAT KIND OF RESCUEE COMPLAINS ABOUT THE RESCUE?! Why don't you just go sit down and tremble in fear and cry out "Save me! Save me!" like you're supposed to!
    Rukia: UGH! I don't need to be saved! AND I DO NOT TREMBLE!
  • Not to mention a large amount of the fight between Charlotte Coolhorn and the obsessively Bishōnen Ayasegawa Yumichika. Within seconds of meeting, dissolve into a fight that stems from the fact they just called each other "ugly".
  • From the anime, Tessai attempting to give Urahara "cold medicine" and the hilarity that ensues.
  • Lucky Dance! It's random, it's silly, and it makes his forehead flash.
    • There's a video about the english version being sung by Vic Mignogna.
  • In the third volume, Ichigo is attacked by Grand Fisher, the hollow who killed his mother. Prefacing this is some golden comedy. Most notably when Rukia shows up as they're visiting the grave. In the original manga when she appears Ichigo screamed "What in the name of God is she doing here?" However, they can't say the G-word in Viz due to "religious sensitivity." So instead, Ichigo's line is "WHAT IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT'S MAGICAL IS SHE DOING HERE?" And then this.
    Karin: Who's that?
    Karin: She looks kind of familiar...
  • Charlotte is a walking, fighting, living Funny Moment. Hence why some fans LOVE him.
  • Karakura-Rizer... Anything about the Karakura-Rizer episodes.
    • Special note of Karakura-Riser Erotic — whose power revolves around being a horny lesbian. And this is funny without Uryu explaining that she has a number of techniques they can't show on TV. Only one is mentioned — Riser Doggy Style. Hyper Erotic Mode!
    • Special mention should go to Tatsuki's expression (Might be something in there), Kon going 'Exit stage left' awkwardly, and Keigo just looking depressed. Through it all, Ishida is obviously having fun.
    • When Kon Breaks The Fourth Wall and complains that the narrator's recap of the previous episode made no sense.
  • Similarly, Mayuri 'reviving' Nemu. Not shown, but Uryu and Renji (who were shown watching every moment of it) appeared to be extremely interested. In the anime, Uryu tries to fathom how this can be allowed on network television! Mayuri's later comment about them 'thinking naughty thoughts' was the icing on the cake.
  • How come we've gone this far without mentioning: GOOOOOOOOOOD! MOOOOOORNIIIIIIIING! IIIIIIIIICHIGOOOOOOOOOO!
    • And in episode 6, Ichigo actually Dynamic Entries Isshin back (around 01:12) when the other is wondering wtf is taking him so long upstairs. Hilarity Ensues.
    • Isshin is a good source of these, like here where he does Deadly Dad Sliding and sees his daughter's Yuzu's underwear leading Karin to do a megaton kick on him sending him down the hill like a bowling ball into some animals like they were bowling pins.
    • Somewhat related: In the game Bleach: Soul Resurreccion, there is a TROPHY for killing a boss by dashing into them emblazoned with Isshin's face called (what else?) GOOD MORNING ICHIGO!
  • Chapter 368 contains someone who appears to have the same opinion of Hitsugaya "Captain Jobber" Toushiro as some fans. And she finally got a reaction out of him.
  • When Ichigo rescued Rukia... by throwing her down to Renji like a javelin. And on top of that, even though Rukia was screaming on the way down and had tears welling up in her eyes from the rush of wind, she looked like she was smiling.
    • Ichigo's shit-eating grin and telling Renji "CATCH!" as if he was tossing a ball at him sells it even more. It's even better in the Mexican Spanish dub where it sounds like Ichigo's VA, Eduardo Garza, is desperately trying not to start corpsing right there.
  • The Beach omake. Matsumoto teaching Orihime some — err, interesting techniques to make sand castles. Yachiru sticking a crab into Ikkaku's loin cloth. Byakuya's artwork being exactly the same as Rukia's! Then, there's Ukitake's "funeral". Just read it all here.
    • The anime episode based on the omake. When Ukitake nearly passes out on the beach from heat stroke, Ichigo, Renji and Ikkaku hurry off to get some ice for him, from Hitsugaya. "Sit upon the heavens, Hyourinmaru!" So there you have it. Cue "Too big."
    • And then there's the mutant watermelons from the Department of Research and Development. What they were planning to do with mutant watermelons with shadow arms (besides smashing them on the beach), I don't think I'll ever know.
      • Well, as some of the lines from the episode mention keeping the tentacles out of bathing suits...
  • In the flashback chapter about Renji, Hinamori, and Kira, Renji falling out of nowhere from a tree in front of Kira. And Rukia popping out of the bushes. Poor Kira.
  • The time Chad and Ichigo met Keigo and Mizuiro. Best Dynamic Entry Ever!
  • How about when Nel realizes that Ichigo is a Soul Reaper?
    • In the same vein, Ichigo first finding out that "Nel is a masochist."
  • Right after Nel regains her arrancar powers, she slowly turns toward Ichigo, and there's a tense moment where she glowers at him. Then she grins broadly, runs up and gets him in a bone-cracking hug. Orihime desperately points it out, Nel realizes she's put Ichigo on the brink of death... and proceeds to hug him again, begging him not to die.
  • The first movie is fairly lackluster save for one scene. After dealing with the Hollow in the opening, Ichigo returns to Rukia who admonishes him for neglecting to use Kon while in public. When he brushes it off with "What's the big deal?", Rukia acts out a scene in which civilians have found Ichigo's soulless (and seemingly dead) body and are panicking. Ichigo replies that it would never happen, so Rukia simply points around the corner to where that exact scene is now playing out.
    • Well, Ichigo WAS right in that they did not call a hearse.
  • This. Hanatarou's expression (or lack thereof) is what makes it.
  • How about when Yoruichi went into the hot spring with Ichigo, but in cat form? ("You little pervert".) And after her explanation, Ichigo turns around to see her and...
  • Hiyori and Ichigo's argument when he starts training with the Vizards.
  • How could no body mentioned Shunsui's first appearance?
  • Pictured above: Chapter 380 of the manga. Ichigo's reaction to Byakuya and Kenpachi's arrival. Nuff said.
  • How about the filler episode that has Ikkaku Madarame volunteering to help with the local high school's kendo club? Eleventh Division Blood Knight training a bunch of freshman high school wimps? Priceless! And that is not even mentioning him ramrodding T-shirt; Hitsugaya into helping him.
    • What's even funnier is the end and his reaction to not getting to fight because the remaining kendo team member won his fight.
  • Or how about the first time we see Gin and Kenpachi in the anime? Ken-chan tries to goad Byakuya into a fight only to have Gin tie Ken-chan up in less then ten seconds and haul him away over the rooftops, apologizing to Byakuya the entire time with that stupid ass grin never leaving his face.
  • In the anime, the sudden transition from the Hueco Mundo arc to the Shuusuke Amagai arc is completely lampshaded in the post-credits Stinger and Omake, where Ichigo is suddenly standing in front of his house with his bankai out with Rukia, randomly healthy, telling Ichigo they have to go to class. Then Nel shows up and tells Ichigo that the "Corporate People" decided to cut their screentime.
    • When it suddenly transitions back to the Arrancar arc, Ichigo walks out of the senkaimon, only to find himself back in Hueco Mundo, and Orihime and Nel telling him to get back in character, pulling out a copy of the manga to show which scene they're on.
  • Shuusuke Amagai saves his people. While drunk. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Aizen basically shipping himself with Ichigo. Here
    • Ichigo's reaction at the bottom just seems to make it funnier.
    • Aizen's hand is on Ichigo's bare chest. She doesn't know how she missed that the first time around, especially given Aizen's line, but it renewed the hilarity.
      • Oh, my, the Foe Yay! Hilarious, and gives all the people who shipped Ichigo/Aizen an excuse, which makes the whole thing even funnier. I think a certain manga-ka is trying to encourage as many crack pairings as he can.
  • Chapter 398: Isshin suddenly headbutting Ichigo. Oh lord, their expressions...
    • Double funny in that page — Ichigo apparently forgets he can STAND ON AIR after receiving said head-butt.
      • So good to see after episodes of Aizen's absurd monologuing. As is the moment when Isshin and Aizen's fight is interrupted by Gin slicing up another building. Then Ichigo jumps into view, to the annoyance of Isshin who promptly ignores Aizen to argue with his son.
  • A rough summary of Chapter 399:
    Gin: "Hi. Remember me? My shikai is a really long sword!"
    Ichigo: *Headtilt*
    Gin: "And my bankai's a really really long sword!"
    Ichigo: "... My bankai fires energy blasts. Huah!"
    Gin: "Dammit."
    • "It's 13 kilometers". *raepface*
    • Gin's Bankai itself. Not compensating for anything taken Up to Eleven
    • Am I really the only person who thought this?
    • And now "fastest bankai in the Gotei 13" takes on a hell of a new meaning.
  • In one of the animated picture books, Ryuken, Uryu's dad, is working on some paperwork at the hospital when he decides to look at a picture of Uryu as a little kid. In pops Isshin, who shoves a picture of Karin and Yuzu in his face. He brags that his kids are still cute. Then Ryuken starts firing arrows at Isshin, blaming Ichigo for Uryu's rebellious stage. Isshin says that's not his fault, but Ryuken responds by saying that the father must take responsibility for his son's sins. See it here!
  • Anime ending 23. Chad punching Zommari Leroux in the face. In a boxing match.
    • Hanatarou in a maid outfit (and looking rather surprised about it since he was previously working in the newspaper office with Hisagi and co).
      • Speaking of the newspaper office, Hitsugaya, Iba, and Komamura all staring out the window incredulously at what appears to be Don Kanonji flying by like a superhero while Kira takes pictures.
      • The fact that Komamura actually Sweat Drops makes it even more hilarious. Considering he hasn't done anything like that before.
    • Barragan dressed as a mob boss with his fraccion.
      • Made even funnier by seeing Loly, Menoly, and Cirucci all over him. Barragan's such a pimp.
      • Even more amusing is the fact that Charlotte Coolhorn is there hidden like Waldo.
      • Starrk and Lilynette playing cards.
    • Ganju as a pissed off shop keeper running after Nel, Mashiro, and Hiyori for stealing his food.
    • Hachi as a chef, too.
    • And Shunsui going in a date with BOTH Nanao and Lisa. What makes it even better is seeing a drunk Ukitake behind, carried around by Sentaro and Kiyone.
    • Tousen's outfit looks an awful lot like Michael Jackson's in the video for "Smooth Criminal".
    • The thought "Aizen-sama, Ace Detective" was the immediate, hilarious thought.
  • Chapter 147: Kenpachi Zaraki imagining how Yachiru, Ikkaku, and Yumichika would advise him in his fight:
    Imaginary!Yachiru: Attack with your intuition! ^-^
    Zaraki (thinking): I'm doing that already!
    Imaginary!Ikkaku: Then just use that! Duh! The mind's eye thing!
    Zaraki (thinking): If I could use that I wouldn't be thinking about this, idiot!
    Imaginary!Yumichika (sparkling): If it was me... I would probably give up... in a beautiful way...
    Zaraki (thinking): Go to hell.
  • Chapter 401: Very tense scene where Aizen explains to Isshin what the MacGuffin really is. Cue to Ichigo and Gin interrupting the talk as they fight. Made even better by this.
  • I'm starting to look like a Nike Mark!
  • "Rukia, why do your drawings suck so bad?" Even Ichigo's English VA has stated it's one of his favorite lines.
  • Ichigo calmly and cheerfully calling an ambulance before he soundly kicks the asses of some jerks who were tormenting Chad in a flashback. "How many? Let's see..." *takes a head count of the bullies* The bewildered faces of the guys only make it better. Doubles as a hilarious CMOA for Ichigo.
  • Hitsugaya's rape face scares even Ikkaku.
  • One scene has Yumichika sparkling around Kenpachi, and Kenpachi comments that he looks a lot more lively than before causing Yumichika to blush, shake his butt, release some hearts, and squeal "Oh my, so you think I've gotten prettier?" In reply Kenpachi scoffs "I didn't say that... Quit shakin' your ass; that's freakin' nasty". Yumichika: "I'm sorry. I just got so excited".
  • The deaths of Zommari and Aaroniero are more hilarious than dramatic. Aaroniero's young-voice-head rants about his pain, repeatly shouts "NO!" and rolls. With his high-pitched voice. Zommari rises his arms and shouts "BANZAI" several times. "AIZEN-SAMA... AIZEN-SAMA... BANZAI!
  • Grimmjow imprisoning Ulquiorra in his Caja Negacion is worth a chuckle or two in part because it's one of the few times we see Ulquiorra seems genuinely pissed about something.
  • Chapter 402: Urahara uses a balloon decoy to fool Aizen. And it works.
  • In Chapter 403, Ichigo's reaction upon seeing Aizen's new form. "What... the fuck... is that..."
    • Also, the technique that Isshin and Urahara use to bind Aizen. AIZEN PINATA. Yoruichi smash!
    • Also, Aizen's new form itself. Some fans have joked that Kubo's background artist has finally been allowed to design a character.
  • Chapter 404: "There must indeed be something special for you to have survived my attack" "You mean MY LEG, right!"
    • Also Urahara and Yoruichi bickering right before that.
  • That time where Lillin gets indignant over being stuck in a doll's body only for Ichigo to suggest that they all help each other into their Gigais. If only for the scene of them running to where their gigais are.
  • Also when Lilin says that she snuck her Gigai under Ichigo's bed.
  • When the gang returns from the Soul Society and Keigo asks if Ichigo and Chad went somewhere together. And then they glance at each other and Keigo freaks out.
  • Where's the love for all the Omakes (Quincy Encyclopedia, Arrancar Encyclopedia and Shinigami Picture Book), particularly the one for 272. After Ishida has been skewered by Hollow Ichigo, Ryuken, his dad, has a great exchange with Isshin:
    Ryuken: (Holding his bow) How're you going to compensate me??!!
    Isshin: (Stuck to the wall by arrows) But I didn't do it!
    Ryuken: Unforgivable!!!
    (He fires more arrows as Isshin dodges.)
    Isshin: Fine! You can have Ichigo when this is over. Do whatever you want to him!
    Ryuken: Damn right I will!
    Isshin: Don't attack me!
    (Cut to outside of hospital as it explodes and Isshin screams.)
    • Kinda makes you wonder how canon will treat Ryuuken's reaction when he finds out about all of this. If I were Ichigo, I'd start running now. Not that it'll do him much good.
  • Every freaking time Isshin headbutts Ichigo.
  • Amagai likes Ukitake very, very much!
  • Omake of episode 275.
    • The omake of #252, when Ishida thinks he can talk to his bow (voice provided by Ichigo).
  • Chapter 407. Keigo. Tatsuki. That's all.
  • Chapter 411. Don Kanonji, of all people, pulling a Big Damn Heroes moment... with Tatsuki and Gin looking at him with "WTF?" faces.
  • Episode 263. Every. Last. Thing. About. It.
  • Chapter 414: Probably Gin's CMOA. It's just the sheer Irony of how he chose to Out Gambit Aizen- watch and wait.
  • Ichigo interrupting Aizen's speech. It has to be seen to be believed. Also counts as a Moment of Awesome.
    • Even better in motion.
    • Something similar in the chapter after that: Aizen is being his hammy self, and in true Bleach fashion is going on about how he hopelessly outclasses Ichigo and the next attack will destroy him. Ichigo (echoing the audience's feelings by this point) just gives him a long, flat look, leaving Aizen sitting there looking uncomfortable. After an awkward silence, he just starts in again, making him sound downright pathetic.
  • More goodness involving Isshin and Ryuken Ishida from Chapter 241.
    Ryuken: That form... your powers returned, then?
    Isshin: I guess... Looks good on me, doesn't it?
    Ryuken: I feel that I may vomit.
    Isshin: (...) Well, thank you very much.
  • Whole of Episode 287, which was made as an 10 year anniversary celebration for the Bleach manga. It shamelessly rips in to and makes fun of the Soul Society Arc — People's mileage varied, but most were howling in laughter every minute of it which was a welcome change for the heavy scenes going on at the time.
  • Chapter 422. Byakuya and Kenpachi come through the Garganta from Hueco Mundo. All the 11th Division members are asking Kenpachi about the battle.
    Kenpachi: Eh... It was boring as fuck.
    • It then cuts to Yammy, lying on the sand, pretty much dismembered.
  • Chapter 423. Yamamoto is lecturing Kenpachi, Byakuya, and Kyoraku for losing their captains' haori, which culminates in this exchange.
    Yamamoto: Just what do you all think your captain haori are, anyway?!
    Kenpachi: A pain in the ass.
    Byakuya: Cheap.
    Kyoraku: Stylish?
    Yamamoto: *Twitch* YOU MORONS!!!
    • Cut to the waiting hall where Ukitake, Kiyone and Sentarou are waiting. Their expressions are absolutely priceless.
  • 425. Ichigo is having a dream about the Shinigami. The Mood Whiplash kicks in and the scene switches to...
  • What about episode 39 [1], the scene with Ikkaku and Yumichika with the wig? Actually, most of the scenes with the 11th Division are funny.
    • Of course, episode 229 could be viewed as Yumichika's revenge. He convinces Ikkaku to wear a wig. Hilarity ensues.
  • 426: Ishida and Ichigo's HILARIOUS team up against a Fat Bastard bully. And the follow up is just as funny. The fact that his knocked out teeth show "426" is also hilarious.
  • 430: Orihime's Imagine Spots. That's all.
  • How come Unohana hasn't been mentioned once? The seemingly sweet, caring captain of 4th Squad, who scares the pants off of anybody without even trying, as seen here when she freaks out some rude individuals from 11th Squad, and even Ichigo. The looks on their faces say it all.
    • Once she got their captain KENPACHI to back down
    • Then there's Bleach on the Beach. Isane was freaking out over a skimpy one-piece her sister, Kiyone, wanted her to wear, which was amusing enough. Unohana decides to intervene. This staid, primly-dressed, motherly woman takes Kiyone's side. And then reveals her own swimsuit... which is even skimpier.
  • The first half of episode 303. It's already funny when Hitsugaya becomes the Only Sane Man in a dispute between the Mens and Womens Shinigami Association. But watch how the card game heats up (Hisagi's massive nosebleed from staring at Matsumoto's Buxom Cleavage and Nemu whipping out a mechanical drill for a hand are just two examples and then culminates in Sui-Feng whipping out her Bankai when anyone dares to try and take Yoruichi-sama's card. It'll make you cry, you'll be laughing so hard.
  • 433: "OMIGOD HE'S A HOTTIE"!!.
  • Episode 312 pretty much from the moment Omaeda opens his mouth without thinking and says he's the Squad 2 captain.
  • In the Bount arc, Yuzu tells Ichigo he has a nice, loving family who will always be ready to help him, whatever happens. Why is this not a Heartwarming Moment? She just saw him talking to Ririn and Kon in their plushie forms and there's no way he could explain to her what these plushies really are.
  • Again, Riruka. She has just used her Fullbring to let Ichigo train in a Year Inside Hour Outside room in the shape of a dollhouse, and now Ichigo wants out. You should've thought twice, Ichigo.
  • Yamamoto's Cleaning Rules... NO BANKAI!
  • Ukitake playing innocent and telling Starrk to work his zanpakuto's powers out for himself. Did he and Kyoraku forget what kind of anime they're in?
  • From episode 200. Bonus points for Ishida and Renji's reaction to the whole thing.
  • In episode 321 we are led to believe that all the doubles are physically identical to the person they replace then we see the Acrofatic Gonk Omaeda's double is a muscular Bishōnen, they're just as hammy as each other though.
  • In a recent manga chapter, Ichigo fighting Mister Pork (basically, a fat Yakuza in a pig suit). Not even the pig suit turning into a monster could make it look serious.
    • Then it's revealed that the normal, human form of the yakuza guy has a face that resembles his pig plushie form!
  • Anything involving Don Kanonji.
  • Have just seen the episode the page-image comes from. Forget trouble over Hollow-ness, that was the highlight of the episode, plus Ichigo's futile insistence that he needs to stay to finish the job.
  • Chapter 450: Orihime drooling over Riruka's donuts and Riruka finally relenting and giving some to her.
  • Only half paying attention to the mental Arabian Nights episode (episode 288), but Rukia/Rukiruki's 'execution' with the tiny Sokyouku bird was priceless.
    • Made even more hilarious when Ichigo comes to rescue her... and has to fight the Seaweed Ambassador. No, even better: he has to fight Byakuya dressed up as the Seaweed Ambassador. And by this, we mean Byakuya is wearing a green SWA outfit over his sort-of Arabian nights clothes, and has to take the first off before fighting Ichigo properly. It has to be seen to be believed.
      Ichigo: ... Those siblings need HELP!
    • Heck, the very fact that Byakuya, of all people, invented something as... strange... as the Seaweed Ambassador is hilarious in itself. Even better, he seems to love it.
      "A cake in the shape of this character... It would truly represent Sixth Company."
    • The Seaweed Ambassador makes a return in one of the Animated Picture Books. Ichigo is studying when Kon randomly leaps onto his head and covers his eyes. Then Renji pops in and shoves something in Ichigo's mouth, asking him how it tastes. Ichigo says that it tastes good, and is confused when Renji explains that the cookies their squad made haven't been selling. Then Renji shows that Byakuya had all the cookies look like the Ambassador.
    Ichigo: That'll never sell...
    • Nothing in that episode is what you would expect, and all of the surprises are hilarious. Yuroichi's the black cat, right? No, she's the magic carpet. The lamp has Kon's face on it, so he must be the genie, right? Nope, that's Rukia. They're riding Bowa Bowa, so Nel must be one of the 40 thieves, right? Well maybe she is, but she's not in this episode. This is Ichigo's dream, right? No, it's Isane's.
  • A later dream-episode has all the cast as various monsters, with Ichigo as Frankenstein's monster (well, he is part-everything), Rukia as a tiny succubus, Rangiku as a Hot Witch, Hitsugaya as a wolf-man (who has trouble resisting doggy instincts, Uryu as a vampire who drinks milk instead of blood (because blood is red, the same color as Shinigami spirit ribbons) and has anemia as a result, Renji as a mummy (who's actually a pirate who is currently a Bandage Mummy after he badly lost a sea battle), and Orihime is a pumpkin. They want to protect the Snow Crystal (which turns out to actually be Rukia) from Isshin and Ryuken as monster hunters, but Ichigo is more interested in waking up... only for it to turn out to not be his dream at all, but Komamura's.
  • In the middle of Ichigo and Ginjou's Training from Hell... this provides a sudden Mood Whiplash. The mere fact that Yukio used his Fullbring to make a sort-of sprite house for Orihime's personal use in the middle of the training space brings the LULZ.
  • During the "Turn Back The Pendulum" arc, Hiyori and Urahara go down to a prison to pay a visit to Mayuri. Hiyori acts the way she usually does and this causes Mayuri to call her a "disrespectful boy" for obvious reasons. Hiyori then gets really pissed off and offers to show him her boobs.
  • Orihime and Nel smashing the fourth wall to pieces. Also the Arrancar Encyclopedia segment where a really nervous Ichigo has to introduce the visibly annoyed Starrk, Barragan, and Harribel. The sheer nervousness of his speech and the expression of the trio makes it even better.
  • Kyouraku running for his life when Starrk goes all out, exasperated on how unfair the Cero Metraletta is.
  • Ichigo is not gonna have kids...
  • Chapter 417: "Tatsuki, Keigo, Mizuiro, Honsho, Kanonji... Imoyama-san...
    • "If you can't remember my name, at least be honest about it!!!"
  • In Chapter 459, Tsukishima undercuts Ginjo's Evil Gloating by claiming it was only necessary because Ginjo is a terrible actor. When the latter tries to deny it, Tsukishima points out that Ginjo dropped his First-Name Basis with Ichigo almost immediately after he reverted to normal. Ginjo's response? "Fuck you!" It's oddly hilarious seeing the Big Bad's own Dragon ruining his Evil Gloating.
  • Chapter 460 starts with Ichigo and Rukia sharing some reunion words, then this happens.
  • Chapter 462 has Urahara carrying an unconscious Orihime and Isshin carrying an unconscious Chad.
    Isshin: (struggling with Chad's weight) I think you got the better deal between the two of us.
    • Also the Engrish title "Why me sad".
  • The "take it off" scene between Ichigo and Renji in the anime.
  • During the Turn Back the Pendulum Arc, upon seeing Yoruichi, a young Byakuya cries "AARGH, the cat monster!"
  • Episode 326, Zaraki is getting ready to battle Fake Sui-Feng, and being Zaraki he's happy about it. Until Komamura arrives, and stands in his way. Zaraki tells him not to interfere and Komamura tells him not to worry about him. He is tough. It's made even funnier by Zaraki trying to tell him to get out of his way with a fiercer voice, but he is ignored and Komamura just continues talking to Fake Sui-Feng like Zaraki isn't there. Yachiru joins in the fun with a "Go for it, Bow-wow!!
  • Episode 298, the Film Festivial episode. Ichigo once again being confused when the fourth wall is broken. Then there's 4th and 7th devision's movie. Komamura putting Iba as the main character (he's in a dog suit btw). Ichigo responds that Iba doesn't fit the image. Komamura's response? That he didn't think the suit was designed as well as he thought it could've been. (He's got a habit of missing the point doesn't he?) Then off-screen, Komamura teaches Iba how to act as a dog better. Then Unohana scaring ZARAKI! This was only the episodes first half!
  • Chapter 464 has several:
  • In Chapter 465, Renji tells that Hisagi brought a motorcycle from the human world into Soul Society and caused a ruckus with it (and ended up being scolded by the captains). The mental image of Hisagi riding a motorcycle through the Seireitei is hilarious. Who's willing to bet that this will get made into an anime omake or a filler episode?
    • In the same chapter, Madarame sets a dislocated shoulder by flexing his muscles and making an extremely strained face. Also, his opponent's reaction.
      Madarame: FUCK YEAH!!!!
  • In the preview to episode 342, Ichigo, knowing that he won't be using his Reiatsu for quite some time, rapidly yells Bankai several times just to stack up his call-outs.
  • In Chapter 466, Hitsugaya has evidently learned the art of being a Deadpan Snarker. And trolling, considering how he defeated Yukio.
  • In Chapter 467, Moe apparently forgets that Fullbringers can fly.
    • His and Ikkaku's fight becomes a MAJOR Ham-to-Ham Combat. And it's as hilarious as it can be.
  • 463. Kenpachi's line as he OHKs Giriko.
    "Hey, Kuchiki. I wanna switch opponents. Your guy looks stronger. Mine looks boring." (cue OHK) "See? Boring."
  • (after the timeskip) We have this adorablely funny moment between Orihime and Ishida. Orihime being her oh so cute self, saying to Ishida, with such a happy-go-lucky & cheerful face, that they're both weirdoes... even better, later you can totally tell from the look on Ishida's face practically screams, "She thinks I'm weird?!" D:
    • Orihime and Ishida have quite a few generally hilarious moments. He's this serious nerd, she's this adorable Cloud Cuckoo Lander... by law is bound to ensue! You have to admit, it doesn't matter if you ship them as a couple or just see them as good friends, Orihime and Ishida's interactions are ALWAYS funny and adorable!
      • Orihime and Ishida decide to disguise themselves as Shinigamis to better slip past through the Soul Society without trouble in order to rescue Rukia. Orihime forgets that she's alone with a man, she proceeds to undress in front of him. (She only goes as far as to take her shirt off though), seeing Ishida have an epic freak out over it was the icing on the cake. And it didn't stop there. Orihime then created a separate changing room to fix the problem. She happily tells Ishida he can now use it and change in peace. Ishida naturally lampshades that normally it's usually the girl that would use the dressing room instead of the other way around.
  • The animated version of the already described Chapter 425, now episode 343. Orihime sees Ichigo and Tatsuki in the school grounds from a second floor window. She starts by calling out to them, then she jumps out the window and slides down a drainpipe to get to them freaking out both her friends and apparently flashing them in the process.
    Ichigo: You idiot! That's dangerous! You'll fall!
    Tatsuki: We can see your panties! *punches Orihime on the top of the head when she gets to the ground*
  • Kon (in Ichigo's body) pulls the whole "gentleman" act on Orihime in an early episode and kisses her hand, which prompts everybody in the classroom to flip out. He makes things worse by kissing Tatsuki on the cheek, which causes her to start throwing heavy objects at him.
  • Rangiku's scene, when she attempts to bribe Ichigo into letting her stay in his room by subtly emphasizing her assets. He tries to resist... but can't.
  • The entirety of the Color Bleach+ Official Bootleg is full of these moments.
  • When Ichigo is rescued and revived after his first confrontation with Byakuya, he wakes to find Urahara's burly assistant Tessai lying on top of him. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Kon looking up Rukia's skirt with an arrow, saying "Nice angle" with a thumbs up and Rukia stomping on him.
    • There's another Kon/Rukia moment in episode 115/116 where Kon tries to glomp Rukia and Rukia simply puts her foot up making Kon slam into it, and slams her foot to the ground.
    • Also And just what are the large boulders?! *stomps Kon repeatedly*
    • The official Viz translation has him making some remark about "scaling the cliff", which is funnier and a nice contrast to his "valley of the gods" line.
  • Rangiku simply punching Keigo away without looking when he tries to glomp her.
  • Chapter 470: Rukia tries to use Kido while a plushie, and fails spectacularly. Ichigo annoys Ishida by being a Leeroy Jenkins once again.
  • [2] Chapter 248: Nel doesn't doesn't want to be left behind and... well... hilarity ensues.
  • Chapter 473. The following:
    Ikkaku: Captain you're early!
    Kenpachi: No shit. You're just late.
    • Hitsugaya referring to the missing Kuchiki and Kuchiki, unwilling to use first name even for the sake of distinction. While Yukio complains-not that anyone's listening-because he's frozen and is going numb.
  • Naked!Rangiku ticking Orihime when trying to cheer her up.
  • Kon making Ichigo sit on a Boo Boo cushion and Ichigo sending him flying in retaliation.
  • Pesche keeps his sword in his loincloth. When he goes to pull it out, he severely Squicks Uryuu, Renji, and even Szayel.
  • Komamura's reaction to Tousen-fly telling him he is far uglier than he had imagined. Tousen previously being blind and Komamura having severe self image issues.
  • The animated rendition of Shishigawara and Orihime's first meeting
    • And the omake in the same episode. Tsukishima wearing an apron and hairclips, anyone?
  • Even though it was followed by Chapter 392, "Blazing Glaciers" had the little gem of Aizen getting to be a Smug Snake with Lisa... and with Sui-Feng... and with Hitsu — cue Shinji's Cheshire Cat Grin. That just made my day. And then a week later it turns out Hitsugaya ran Hinamori though. Some people found that funny, too.
  • In an omake during the Dangai training, the Inner Hollow berates Ichigo for flooding his Inner World... and then is shown wearing swim trunks and a swim ring. And all the while Tensa Zangetsu is swimming laps with a school of fishes.
  • Chapter 475: Renji asking Rukia is she's okay and practically screaming into her ear.
  • Keigo, the lovable idiot, comments in one scene about Chad and Ichigo: "What the heck? The two of you didn't go somewhere together, did you?" Chad and Ichigo share a confused look prompting Keigo to scream "Why're you looking at each other?! Don't tell me something happened between the two of you over summer vacation..."
  • Rangiku's almost boob spill. "I was in danger of them spilling out!" "What would?" "My breasts?" "Good thing they didn't!"
    • The dub translates Toshiro's last line as "I doubt that would upset you."
  • What about Chapter 196, with the arrival of the scouting squad composed of Rukia, Renji, Madarame, Rangiku, Yumichika, and Hitsugaya? The look on Madarame's face when he is taunted in the classroom made me laugh out loud.
    All right... those two who said "bald", stand up and face me...
  • Mayuri having Nemu hold down a struggling Ishida and Ichigo with Marshmallow Hell while he tried to administer "medicine". "If he dies, he dies happy." Indeed.
  • In Chapter 480, while Yuki is getting chased by Hollows, his expression and words make it rather funny. Then, cue the next page...
  • In 481, Yuki sees his own gigai. And then, Shino gives him lariat. While Ichigo and Ishida casually ignore the beating he's getting.
    Ichigo: "Oh, well. Let's eat."
    Ishida: "I think he might like the roasted mackerel bread. Let's leave it for him. SHE DROPPED THE COLA.
  • 482: The absolute deadpan reactions from Orihime, Karin, Yuzu, Chad, and Ishida to Ichigo and Ivan's interactions. While Shino and Yuki hug on the corner.
  • In one scene, Rukia, not above using force to get her way, decides to kick Tessai in the backside to get his attention, only to find out the hard way just how made of iron he really is. Not only does he not feel it, he only notices her when he turns to see her cradling her injured foot.
    • The same happens in the flashback arc when Sarugaki Hiyori decides to kick Urahara in the nuts � and learns that Urahara is always prepared for everything. Painful lesson, indeed.
  • Chizuru's Psycho Lesbian antics are always good for a laugh. I think my favorite moment is when she's looking at Orihime's huge boobs compared to Rukia's small ones and saying that she likes Rukia's just fine as they are "peaceful and adorable". Rukia's response is to laugh nervously and say "I do not know what you are talking about but I will take it as a compliment" while Ichigo just stands there with a WTF expression on his face.
  • Tobiume and Haineko's interactions. This one is pretty good.
  • In the Bount Arc at one point Rukia flies into a rage after Kon compares her chest to a vertical wall.
  • Hiyori, got really, really ticked off when Mayuri called her a boy.
    • In the English dub she explicitly says (yells at him) that she will show him her boobs to prove she is a girl during that scene.
  • Chapter 485: The return of Nel. All drooling and with snot coming out of her nose as she pulls a Dynamic Entry on Ichigo. And then it's followed by Mood Whiplash as she bawls on him and begs him to help her since Hueco Mundo has been taken over.
  • That scene where the guys are blackmailed by Rangiku into doing her evil bidding and have to crossdress.
  • Chapter 486: Okay, so Nel's return had some elements of funny. The hilarity is fully unleashed when Pesche drops by as well.
    • "You can't tell who I am by looking at my crotch!"
    • "I don't wanna look at your ass."
    • Nel calling Chad a "giant".
  • 487: "That's not my mouth, that's a protuberance!"
  • Even the last episode of the anime manages to sneak some of these. From the epilogue alone, we have:
    • Nanao being super Tsundere towards Shunsui.
    • Sentaro and Kiyone tripping each other while they run towards Ukitake
    • Ikkaku dropping his tough guy facade as he gets healed by Unohana
    • Kira getting drunk and pissy because he doesn't want Rose as his captain, much to the exasperation of Yumichika and Iba.
    • Sui-Feng's new practice targets... that have Shinji and Urahara's faces drawn on them, much to Oomaeda's horror.
    • Toshiro meeting up with Momo... and then getting Marshmallow Hell from behind thanks to Rangiku. Which launches him straight into Momo.
    • Mayuri and Nemu being... well, themselves.
    • Shinji and Hiyori screaming at each other over the phone.
      • And Hiyori hitting Shinji with the fourth wall.
  • Rukia doodling a mustache on Ichigo's face.
  • In their first encounter, Ichigo kicks Rukia and flips a table after hearing Rukia's explanation of Soul Reapers.
    • The table even has a note on the top saying "Warning: Only for the use of jokes like this".
  • At the beginning of Chapter 488 we have two of Tier Harribel's Fraccion butting heads and arguing.
    • Nel covering Ichigo's eyes.
  • Findorr Carias retreating backwards away from Shuhei Hisagi... and accidentally flying through a building because he wasn't watching where he was going.
  • 498. Akon from the Mission Control team of Soul Society tries to contact Ichigo to tell him about the massive invasion. Since Ichigo is fighting Kirge, Urahara replies to the call instead. Hilarity Ensues. (And then Mood Whiplash to the core.)
  • In the Shinigami Academy flashbacks, Renji tries to use kido. Hilarity Ensues.
  • In one of the commercials for the Hell Chapter movie, Ichigo is so outraged by Rukia's lousy drawings that he Hollowfies and tears them apart, while Rukia stands next to him with a big grin on her face.
  • 503 Has one that doubles as a CMOA to lighten the mood where [[BloodKnight Kenpachi mentions how one Stern Ritter wouldn't shut up about her powers. So, because he was deaf from fighting an enemy with Make Me Wanna Shout powers, he just tore her throat out mid-sentence before she could actually use her powers.]]
    • Kenpachi: "The 2nd one went on about having something against me and explained her powers forever. I could hardly hear her cos of the other guy's roaring. She was annoying so I just tore off her throat."
      • "Get out of my way, beanpole. I ain't interested in you."
  • "Get off my bed." Ichigo has no respect for dramatic entrances.
  • Ichigo hears someone playing the guitar badly. Then we learn WHO is playing. Meeeeep.
  • 516 features the return of none other than KON. It has to be seen to be believed.
  • In 517, Shinji and Ichigo's reaction to Squad 0 is virtually the same as the readers who expected a group of serious, tough-as-nails badasses... and got a bunch of badass but very quirky Bunny Ears Lawyers.
  • "FEEL PAIN!"
  • 518 should be renamed as Bleach: Funny Background Event, the Chapter. Specially with Mayuri commanding the Twelfth Division to keep Kon restrained and Chad and Orihime trying to keep the identity of their "mysterious savior" hidden from Ichigo so he won't worry for them.
    • Add to it the return of Kuukaku. And she's as feisty and hilarious as ever.
  • 519, the hot springs scene, with Dr. Jerk Tenjirou treating the severely wounded Byakuya and Renji like rag dolls from one to another Healing Spring and teasing Ichigo about a literally butt naked Rukia.
    Ichigo: "What the...!? You're holding Renji like a beetroot!"
    • A couple of panels later:
      Tenjirou: (Looking at Rukia's butt) "Kinda puts you in the mood for peaches don't it?"
    • Also, when when Tenjirou mocks Ichigo for not understanding him, Hikifune gives Tenjirou a Dope Slap and orders him to explain properly.
  • 520: Ichigo now is more or less fine, so is Renji, and they get ready to continue exploring the surroundings and then meet the King of Souls. How will this be done? Why, Tenjirou and his assistants will launch them in person, of course!
  • 521. Where do we start? The chapter opens with Ichigo and Renji yelling at each other mid-air, followed by Kon becoming their "cushion"?; then we have a super over the top greeting by Hikifune, who almost throws them off the gate by accident. Third, there's Renji and Ichigo's impromptu eating duel over Hikifune's food, including a quite the rant about it from Renji. And after a somewhat more serious moment, Hikifune returns in her slim form, causing them to go all SpitTake.
  • 522. Just 522.
    Ichigo: "Renji. Tag in... this guy is not my speed."
    • And this line:
      Ichigo: (Regarding the women of Galaxy Phoenix Club) "Don't let your guard down. There's gotta be a catch. I'm sure they'll turn out to be dudes or something like that."
  • 528 has Ikumi epically headbutting Ichigo.
  • 529:
    • Isshin Shiba, the former captain of Squad 10. Pretty much everything about him, but the prize goes to the scene when he lifts Hitsugaya in the air, saying "takai, takai!" (which roughly translates into "big boy"). Doubles as a CMOH, considering how many Soul Reapers still treat Hitsugaya as a kid.
    • What, no Matsumoto hilariously and awesomely beating Isshin for perving on her and her Gag Boobs?
  • 533: Masaki's friend Shiho is asking her what it's like living with "Ishida-senpai" because... dayum. Masaki protests that they're cousins and it's just not like that between them! Shiho replies that if Ryuuken was her cousin, she'd STILL glady ride his joystick.
  • 535: Urahara and Ryuken get shocked to speechlessness by Isshin's reckless heroism. It looks like this. His face makes it.
  • 536: Isshin's narration describes how much Masaki meant to him, connecting it to a line in a movie Masaki liked about her being his sun. The very next panel is a Visual Pun of this.
    • Earlier in the same chapter, right after Urahara is done linking Isshin and Masaki's souls together, Isshin suspects Masaki is fantasizing dirty things about what could have happened, had they stayed in her inner world for a little while longer.
    • Isshin yelling at Masaki for being so casual about being naked in front of him.
  • 538: Ichigo looks ready to charge into action... until Isshin asks him if he even knows where he's supposed to go and how to get there.
  • 540 shows how good Ichigo is at pulling fastidiated faces. Followed by the colorful arrival of Nimaiya's all-girl assistant group.
  • 544: As much needed "rest" after many Vandereich-related revelations, we get to see the return of Orihime... and one of the middle pannels is really damn funny.
  • Chapter 545 has several moments.
    • The fully recovered Rukia and Renji have a staring contest... as part of their training. Both fail hilariously.
    • Renji recalls their visit to Shutara. Both he and Rukia had to undress so Shutara could take measurements for their new shihakusho. When Renji protests against standing naked in front of her, Shutara casually suggests she cut off his dick.
      • Rukia then worries about how Byakuya will be forced to go through this indignity next, and Renji gets annoyed about how she wasn't really bothered by him going through it.
    • Shinji and Hiyori are fighting over the phone. Hinamori just pretends she isn't there.
    • Hiyori's epic pose.
    • Kyoraku meets with Ichigo's friends. Mizuiro proves to be the most talkative, and Kyoraku expresses his disappointment that Mizuiro isn't a girl.
  • Chapter 547: After the Vandenreich attacked for the first time, Akon revealed that he had video camera's in Kurotsuchi's room. We see Akon looking at a monitor and saying "Captain... What is that?!?!" With the expression of someone watching vivisection being performed without anesthetic. It turns out to be... Mayuri's new, very interesting new choice of wardrobe (and the fuzzy magician-like outfit he apparently made Nemu wear).
  • Rangiku's face in 548.
  • Askin's "NO" face in Chapter 550 is hilarious.
  • Chapter 551: Nanao reveals she was chosen as lieutenant because of her skill in kido. Kyoraku protests that isn't why he picked her, and she tells him to shut up.
  • Chapter 552: Mayuri gets annoyed by Urahara and hangs up on him, only for Urahara to reveal he was in the room the whole time.
  • Chapter 554: Bambietta does a monologue, then turns around and finds that her teammates left while her back was turned. She loses her temper.
  • Chapter 559: Mask de Masculine gets A Day in the Limelight. Hilarity Ensues.
    • The reveal of Mask's epithet in the next chapter. Fandom speculated it to be "the Shadow", "the Stealth", "the Sneaky" - anything that would indicate that Mask specializes in sneak attacks, making them more powerful when he is unnoticed. And it turned out to be the exact opposite of that: "the Superstar".
  • The seven strange cases of Karakura Town omakes: Ichigo investigates rumors about ghostly apparitions, only for them to turn out to be the Shinigami doing weird things in the human world. The best of them has Ichigo investigating a rumor about "a floating figure in white" — which turns out to be Ishida patrolling in his Quincy uniform, using a disk of spiritual particles to get by.
  • Chapter 566: Renji falls asleep in the middle of the battlefield. NaNaNa finds and observes him, thinking he was trying to trick him. Renji wakes up and leaves, and NaNaNa gets irritated that he really was just sleeping.
  • Chapter 567: Combined with Narm, As Nodt bend sideways in confusion at his powers failing to work. And he keeps doing it...
    • As well as his derp eyes when he explains what exactly makes fear unblockable, and his "wtf?" expression when Rukia explains her own powers.
  • Chapter 569: As Nodt comments that the last time they met, he tore out Byakuya's stomach. He then asks Byakuya if he's lost weight.
  • Chapter 570: Yachiru has no concept of stealth. She continues to be her usual loud self even though they are supposed to be hiding.
  • Chapter 572: Yachiru's dance.
  • Chapter 574: Kenpachi reveals he doesn't know what cookies are.
  • Chapter 581: A building in the distance breaks apart. The female Sternritters wonder what that was, then Ichigo Flash Steps near them and explains that he briefly lost control of his speed, causing him to crash into the building. Made even funnier by the unamused faces of Candice and Liltotto as the building breaks apart.
  • Chapter 582:
  • Who said there is no place for humor during a fight? Chapter 583 proves otherwise.
  • Chapter 584: Candice has an arm cut off by her own thunderbolts and tells Giselle to fix it. It's all tense until Giselle pretty much starts salivating at the possibility of using blood for it... And when Candice tells her that nope, she doesn't want her to use blood, she goes all droopy.
  • Chapter 585:
    • Ichigo's expression when the gunslinger quincy appears right beside him, he seems more annoyed that the quincy caught up with him than worried about having a gun to his head.
    • When Renji saves Ichigo from Bazz-B, Ichigo complains about almost getting hit by Renji's attack.
  • Chapter 586: Ikkaku taunts the Sternritters with, "If you want us to go away, just die right now!" Annoyed, Yumichika says that doesn't make any sense.
    "Good thing, I'm already used to your crazy!"
  • Chapter 587: The glorious Ham-to-Ham Combat between Renji and Bazz-B. Bazz-B gets upset when Renji makes fun of his mohawk, then angrily retorts by complimenting Renji on his eyebrows. Flabbergasted and actually blushing, Renji actually admits Bazz-B is "such a nice guy!"
  • Chapter 588: Giselle's reaction when Yumichika accuses her of actually being a man, saying s/he reeks of semen. There's so many possible explanations here, and they're all hilarious.
  • Chapter 589: Chad, uncharacteristically puts Ichigo on the spot and asks him what he thinks of Orihime's outfit? The real kicker is Yoruichi thinking Ichigo has hurt Orihime's feelings and bitch slapping Ichigo for it.
    • Not to mention, Orihime being all embarrassed as she mistakenly thinks Ichigo believes her to be a pervert. And Urahara being a Dirty Old Man all around.
      • Yumichika still mocking Giselle despite being injured and about to be turned into a zombie. And Kurotsuchi's costume reflecting light to the point that Giselle can only see his outline.
  • 590: Giselle's behavior towards Zombie!Bambietta is so over the top and so close to a Boke and Tsukkomi Routine, that, instead of creepy, it comes off as this.
  • 591: The return of Dordoni, Luppi, Cirucci, and Charlotte. The latter especially fills the chapter with absolute hilarity. To make a review...
    • Charlotte spends his first pages being an incredible and snarky Large Ham, which pisses the HELL out of Yumichika as almost all his jabs are directed at him.
      Charlotte: Hmmmm~? Who is that hot mess of a fashion nightmare over there~? Could it be~? Yuuuu~? Miii~? Chiii~?... Ah, I forgot! Oh no, oh no, no no nooooo~!!! I cannot believe I went and forgot that ugly, Little Miss Droopy over there's name~!!!
      Yumichika: (Seething with rage) Don't worry! After I chop and fillet you again, I'm sure it'll all come rushing back to you!
    • Dordoni and Cirucci join the porkitude shamelessly while announcing their motives to be there (Dordoni wants to see what's Ichigo doing, Cirucci wants to have revenge against Ishida), while Luppi is completely deadpan. Mayuri 's reaction to this? "Stop the small chat." And then he electric shocks the group up. Luppi included''. (He even screams that he wasn't talking!) As for Charlotte, he seems to be immune at first... then'' an electric shock hits him. And nothing happens.
    • Later Charlotte gets ready to directly fight Giselle. Bad thing, he first tries to bond with her over "their problems".
      Giselle:... Are you my opponent? Not that luminous body over there?
      Charlotte: (Smiling) Yes... My instincts are telling me to fight you... because you resemble me so very much.
      Giselle: (Incredulous) In what way?!
    • Which naturally upsets her so she sends out Zombie!Bambietta... and Charlotte tosses Zombietta ''[[GrievousHarmWithABody right at Mayuri''.]] The last one is even funnier thanks to Charlotte's reply to Mayuri's complains.
  • 596: Pepe attempts to control Mayuri's zombies of Kensei and Rose. The Oh, Crap! face he makes when Mayuri explains that it doesn't work is priceless.
  • In 599, the reaction when Shutara summons a Giant Mook.
    Gerard Valkyrie: "Wow. So she's a size queen."
  • In 605, Yhwach fires an arrow at himself to launch himself back into the battlefield. As one commenter put it: "Quincy finally uses a bow again. Immediately shoots himself."
  • Bazz-B is typically a No-Nonsense Nemesis, but make fun of his mohawk and he'll shout your ear off.
  • In 611, Team Ichigo finally arrives in the Royal Realm. Orihime uses her shield to protect everyone from the impact... except for Ganjuu. She apologizes, saying she couldn't make it big enough for it to fit him.
  • In 612, when the remaining Soul Reapers regroup, as usual, they don't care about Omaeda and barely pay attention to him. Even Shinji doesn't care about him when Omaeda tries to praise his efforts at keeping everyone alive. When Omaeda LOUDLY orders everyone to be quiet so they don't wake up his little sister Mareyo, Sui-Feng kicks him in the nuts and points out he's the only one being loud.
  • 613: Ukitake shows up too, and he is so eerily happy about being able to fight again that it's really, really funny. He just can't stop smiling at everything.
  • 614: Hiyori and Shinji meet once again, resulting in their classic volleying of insults. Though funny on its own, what really adds humor to the scene is Shinji's attempt to get Sui-Feng on his side by claiming that by mocking his haircut, Hiyori is mocking Sui-Feng's as well; Sui-Feng responds by threatening to kill him if he ever claims their hairstyles are similar.
  • 617: In the context of his memetic status, Aizen gets a crowning moment by already trolling Shunsui the very moment he makes his return to the manga.
  • 621:
    • Omaeda saves Sui-Feng from some of the shadow babies, and she immediately backhands him.
    • Aizen is very amused while watching the SS Struggle against Yhwach's shadow babies:
      Aizen: "This is hilarious. Why are you lot waving your swords like that?"
  • 622: Aizen's almost bemused reaction to the fact his Cool Chair wasn't at all affected by the usage of his signature Hado #90: Black Coffin, without incantation, on the army of Yhwach's shadow babies.
    Aizen: "This is one good chair."
  • 624 is fairly serious... until Yoruichi shows up and kicks an unconscious Ichigo in the back to wake him up. It goes downhill from there.
  • 625:
    • The tension between Ichigo and Grimmjow is growing, it looks like there's gonna be a fight... until Nel glomps Ichigo from nowhere, completely taking the wind out of Grimmjow's sails. What's more, Nel glomps Ichigo in ways that makes Orihime and Chad feel very uncomfortable.
    • Ichigo having a Grade-A Freak Out when he realizes he's been Locked Out of the Loop yet again (in that the Arrancar and Fullbringers have been backing them up). Yoruichi claims there was No Time to Explain, but Ichigo points out anybody could have told him during the journey to the Royal Realm.
    • Though the subject they're discussing is fairly serious, the badass, Schutzstaffel lying around on couches and eating fruit is hilarious to look at.
  • 628:
    • Ichigo's reaction towards finding out that Yoruichi has a little brother.
      Ichigo: Yo... you had a little brother!? Why am I only hearing about this now!?
      Yoruichi: Why am I obligated to specifically explain the existence of a little brother to you? You planning on putting a ring on my finger anytime soon?
    • The group imagining what Yoruichi's brother looks like. First a gruff Armstong-esque guy, which Yoruichi points out that he's closer to her physical appearance, to a humanoid cat.
      Yoruichi: Not in that form!!
    • Yuushirou's Adorkable antics are hilarious as heck, specially when he tries to go meet his beloved big sister... and almost ends up falling off a platform for his trouble.
  • 629:
    • Ichigo also ran off a platform and almost fell. Yoruichi gets annoyed and says he's just like her brother, and has to inform Ichigo that that wasn't a compliment.
    • Mayuri and Nemu arrive in a different area than the rest of the Gotei 13. Mayuri gloats and gives a big monologue about how he doesn't care about the struggle against Yhwach and now he's free to pursue his own goals, only to find Kenpachi is right behind him, which actually startles him.
    • Almost any panel that features the return of Hanatarou is this. His trying to find someone else in this group that isn't either a mad scientist or a barbarian also doesn't turn out very well.
      Hanatarou: What do you think of all this?
      Nemu: I don't think.
    • Askin laments his luck when his superiors order him to intercept Ichigo's group all by himself.
  • In 630, Askin suvives a massive attack from Grimmjow. When his attacker is distracted by complaining to Ichigo about how he's not his boss, Askin tries to make a run for it while making one of his funniest faces ever. Hilarity Ensues.
  • 635:
    • While she's currently bleeding out from a hole in her stomach and thus ruins some of the humor of the moment, Liltotto does get points for noting that, for all Bazz-B's talk of wanting a "one-on-one fight" with Haschwalth, he still got taken down almost pathetically easily, while also noting the Irony of that statement since her and Giselle's fight with Yhwach went much the same way.
    • Gerard getting completely lost while trying to find the enemy.
    • Askin whipping out a thermos for a nice coffee after he thinks he got away from Grimmjow. Keyword is thinks.
  • 640:
    • There's something rather amusing about the fact that, for all of Mayuri's Crazy Preparedness, he completely failed to take into account the Quincy's basic Energy Bow. His strategy is completely undone when his opponent simply manifests the bow and blows up his Bankai from the inside. It's also pretty hilarious that one of the only members of the Vandenreich Quincies to actually use the Quincy Energy Bow is a giant disembodied arm.
    • Pernida mimics Mayuri's Evil Laugh, then pauses to ask him if it was done right.
  • 644: Shunsui is apparently shot by Lille, but it turns out he wasn't. That's pretty awesome, but not funny. The hilarity takes place when Shunsui reveals how he outgambitted Lille - by literally appearing right behind him with a really funny face.
  • 645: Nanao threatens to shave Kyouroku's chest hair off if he dies before she returns.
    • "But that's one of my defining characteristics..."
  • The Lille Flamingos, specifically the first one we see going hilariously crazy over the loss of his Holy Halo. His head spins around as he shouts "NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!" and blasts his surroundings. Then we see a swarm of crazy Lille Flamingos everywhere and it only gets more hilarious with the noise they were making according to Kira, basically standard bird noises in Japanese.
  • 662: In a serious moment, where Yoruichi is on her hands and knees just to stay conscious, Askin get interrupted monologuing by Kisuke suddenly appearing behind her apparently looking at her ass and says "It looks like you got your ass stuffed full of a lethal dose from where I'm sitting!" She promptly kicks him in the jaw. They quickly bicker over said situation. Then he touches her behind which suddenly has her rocket upwards, surprising Askin. When she and Kisuke are running off she asks what he injected into her ass, the first thing we see is the words "God of Thunder 3" with a great degree of focus on it.
    • After Urahara suggests Yoruichi use her Super Mode. She refuses as she doesn't like it. So he makes her transform by peeling a sign which reads it will do exactly that.
  • Chapter 663 and Yoruichi has now gone a full 180, from a cat that behaves like a human to a human that behaves like a cat, including washing herself, playing with a bulrush provided by Urahara and scratching a huge slash in Askin's shoulder.
    Askin: Aw, hell no!
  • Chapter 666 has some Mood Whiplash after Urahara and Askin's fight. First Byakuya arrives to help Hitsugaya, saying that Gerard as an opponent is a summit he can't hope to reach one-one and he'll need his help. After which Hitsugaya makes a height joke, which Byakuya doesn't react till he points it out in which he gives a fake laugh to it. Finally Gerard tries to launch an attack only to have his hand sliced off by Kenpachi, which gets this exchange
    Kenpachi: The fuck's goin' on here? Captains holdin' hands and singing Kumbaya. I just threw up a little in my mouth!!
    Byakuya and Hitsugaya: Terrific... just when I thought things couldn't get any worse...
    • What really sells it is Byakuya's deadpan expressions when he's talking with Hitsugaya.
  • Chapter 670 after Zaraki's arm splits apart from his new bankai, he does an instant face plant and gets promptly squished.
  • Chapter 673 has some more humor with Hitsugaya's new appearence. After Renji and Rukia arrive to the battlefield and see Gerard, Hitsugaya expresses amazement that they survived. Renji, however, is more confused over who "that guy" is. Rukia tells him not to be an idiot, saying he should recognize him by voice alone...
    Rukia: Clearly it is Commander Hitsugaya's older brother!!
    Renji: Oohhh, quick thinking! Pleased to meet you!
    Hitsuguya: Y... Yes, It's an honor to finally meet the both of you!
    Byakuya (Thinking): Not even gonna try, are you...
  • In 674, as Byakuya tucks Renji and Rukia under each arm in his Diving Save... while he carries the small and light Rukia rather gently, on his other side he drags the much heavier Renji as if he were a sack of potatoes, causing poor Renji to smack his shoulder and arm against a wall.
    Renji: "YEOWCH!!!"
  • Chapter 678 has dark humor in that Ichigo prepares to deliver a Shut Up, Hannibal! to Yhwach, by unleasehing his brand new bankai. We get a two-page spread of him unveiling his new sword, expecting Ichigo to deliver a beatdown... only to get the exact image again, this time with the sword broken in half within a millisecond as Yhwach uses The Almighty and completely NoSell it, leading to the biggest OhCrap look on Ichigo's face, scene previously when Aizen also did it to Ichigo way back in the Soul Society.
  • Chapter 681: Tsukishima announcing his arrival by... backstabbing Ichigo and pissing off Ginjo by declaring that they're joining Ichigo's side.
  • Chapter 685: Hisagi mentions that he's mastered bankai, only for Matsumoto and Hitsugaya to both point out that they've never seen it and think he's making it up. Even Hisagi's own captain agrees with them, despite having seen said bankai.
  • Chapter 686: Several funny moments in the final chapter:
    • The last color spread has Ichigo, Orihime, Rukia, Renji, Chad, Ishida, Yuzu, Karin and Mizuiro chilling and lounging around... while Keigo tries to jump into the group and Tatsuki is getting ready to punch him.
    • Hiyori chasing Kazui out of her home.
    • Rukia and Renji visiting Ichigo and noting how "busy" his clinic is. Ichigo tells them to shut up, as the emergency clinic being empty is supposed to be considered a good thing.
    • Keigo greeting Rukia in his own familiar manner. Tatsuki then puts him in his place with a well-timed punch.
    • Karin teasing Yuzu for showing Kazui the same type of affection she shows for Ichigo.
    • Renji and Rukia about to introduce their daughter, Ichika, to Ichigo but realize that she abandoned them. They try to play it off as no big deal but Ichigo is not having any of it. He even calls them out for letting their daughter regularly beat on helpless humans.
    • The nonchalant way that Yhwach's reiatsu is wiped out forever. Kazui simply touches it.
    • The first meeting between Kazui and Ichika. Ichika sneaks into Kazui's room, determined to impress by showing off her sword. Kazui simply transforms nonchalantly into his Shinigami form, causing Ichika to scream out in surprise.
    • Chad is now a world-famous boxer. Ichigo pretty openly lampshades how Out of Focus he'd been for the entire series and notes how weird it is that Chad of all people would turn out to be the most famous out of all of them.
  • Come on, man, no one mentioned that Isshin sent Aizen flying by flipping him the bird?



How well does it match the trope?
