Go To

  • Frieza, Cooler, and King Cold's reactions from seeing how powerful the other fighters are.
    • Especially during the U16 Vegetto VS U20 Broly fight.
  • U18 Pan beating up U10 Bardock. She's so cute when she's beating the snot out of someone.
  • The look on Jeece's face when he is told he has been picked to fight his universe's version of Frieza.
    Jeece: Er... I forfeit.
  • Toriyama (in his robot form) is being put into the fight, his reaction to fighting someone he didn't create and thus cannot control, is priceless.
  • One of the colored chapter start pages has U16 Bra and U18 Bra talking about how they go about their lives with U16 Bra basically summing up "training with my family is the best part of my life" and U18 Bra tells she's basically not much different than the DBGT canon Bra at the end both go "get a life, girl" on the other.
    • And in another bit involving these two, after U16 Pan dies, we see U16 Bra flipping out and going SSJ out of anger at U6 Bojack killing her. U18 Bra makes comments about her U16 self being so different and Vegeta flatly tells her she could be like her if she actually trained to which she both says she doesn't like her U16 self's hair style OR the idea of being like Goku and her dad "and be all muscle and no brain." which amusingly ticks off Vegeta.
      • More U16/U18 interaction hijinks: After having a chat with U12 Android 16 and Future Trunks (the Trunks that visited from the future in canon DBZ), U18 Gohan goes to Videl and has a little chat about him with Videl, but she says they just had a chat about that... cue U16 Gohan showing up with a *cough* and U18 Gohan going Oh, Crap! and apologizing once he notices he confused U16 Videl with his, and realizes he's in the wrong crowd, but U16 Gohan just takes it in stride since U16 and U18 Videl look exactly alike, and accepts his apology.

  • The special chapters revealing the history of Universe 3 (where Bardock actually listened to the guy who gave him his future sight) reveal Goku and Raditz's mom... and she's hilariously awesome. One of the best parts of her appearances is when she receives word that Bardock deposed King Vegeta. She's standing there with one hand up to her scouter, and one hand holding a bruised baby-Goku by the tail while shouting "Bardock did WHAT?"
    Hanasia: I can see my planet from here... AND MOONS!
  • The introduction of Gotenks (U16) and Gotenks (U18) in their fight. And then there's Bra's and Pan's reaction.
    U16 Bra: That's it, I'm going to eliminate both of them right now.
    Pan: Come on... Go Gotenks!
    U18 Bra: Which one?
  • Android 16's has two reasons for joining the tournament. First to use the Dragon Balls so he can become human. Second...
    Android 16: There are several Son Goku here and I'd like to kill one.
    • Even further Hilarious in Hindsight when you realize U13!Kakarot is immortal, and would give no end of fun to Android 16.
  • Cell realizing his Cell Jr. isn't strong enough to fight Gast, the Super Namek, takes his child inside telling him he's going to make him more powerful. When the Cell Jr. asks how Cell would make him stronger, Cell kills the Cell Jr. with a Finger Poke of Doom and creates a stronger one. Then, after the new Cell Jr. arrives for the match, he punches said opponent in the face without touching the ground, in such a way that is guaranteed to disqualify him or reveal that this is not the same Jr. used before, Cell... facepalms.
    • Cell's kill-and-replace move did not go unnoticed by many of the other universes' fighters, but nobody bothers to call him out on it... immediately, anyway. By the end of the second round, everybody who had been killed during the tournament is resurrected, which includes both of the Cell Jrs. Vegitto wastes no time poking fun at him, "wondering" out loud why there would be two Juniors instead of one.
      Vegitto: Try not to kill them on the way out this time!
  • The ending of Chapter 23 (the Universe 7 special). Vegeta's and Cui's Oh, Crap! face as the Super Namekian they've been eavesdropping on, who has curbstomped Frieza, finds them and blackmails them for help to drive Frieza's spaceship. Their faces sell the whole deal.
  • Zen Buu's reaction to the music being played at the beginning of the second day. He demands that the band give him the instruments, saying that he could play better. Turns out he can. Those who hear it, except guys like Idiot Hero Goku consider it Awesome Music.
    • The simple fact they are the Cantina Band crowns it off.
    • Also, Zen Buu telling one of the musicians to keep playing because he is the only good one from his group.
      • Why did Buu single out that one musician? Because he absorbed his universe's version of that guy, which is where his own musical talent comes from.
  • Frieza recieves an epic trolling at the hands of U13's Nappa, where he berates Frieza repeatedly and then forfeits so Frieza can't lay a hand on him without being disqualified. That's funny enough, but the real CMOF comes when Frieza lands back in his own sector, when Burter asks if he's okay. Frieza responds by backhanding Burter hard enough to make his head explode.
  • Buu has a few funny moments immediately after trying to absorb the entire stadium, particularly doing an impression of South Kai (well enough to make East Kai let out a "nervous" laugh) and showing Fat Buu the right way to shut up Babidi.
    • As well as two people in the audience calmly commenting on how interactive the show is while wrapped up by Buu-goo tentacles.
  • Eleim uses his dimensional cutter to attack Bra, only for her to dodge it... and it hits Uub, who loses his arm again. The kicker? Instead of screaming in terror, the following dialogue takes place:
    Uub: Oh no, come on!!
    Zen Buu: Comiiing...
  • How does the huge, multi-page buildup to U3 Ghost Warrior Broly end? Why, by having him being casually killed in one hit by U13 Vegeta before he can transform to his invincible legendary form, of course! As one person pointed out in the comments, you can almost hear his Leitmotif be interrupted by a Record Needle Scratch.
  • At one point, we cut to King Kai commentating on the Gast vs King Piccolo fight when all of the sudden...
    The Tenth Doctor: Say, I'm trying to enjoy the tournament, could you stop commentating all the bloody time?
    King Kai: Uh, excuse me.
    • And there's a Krogan sitting behind them.
  • Gast making the most diabolical face as he tells King Piccolo... to let himself be overwhelmed by benevolence. Yep. Gast The Stoic trolling King Piccolo.
  • Babidi sends a group of mind-controlled spectators into Universe 18's lodgings to take Videl hostage. The others hear the commotion, Pan runs in to save Videl... only to find Videl's already beaten them all!
  • Goku not recognizing his own father. Made even funnier as Goku and Bardock are the example picture for Strong Family Resemblance.
    Goku: If that Bardock guy wants to win, he's got to hold out until Cold gets tired...
    Vegeta: "That Bardock guy" is your father, may I remind you.
    Goku: For real, that's him?
    Goku (oblivious to Vegeta's look of disbelief): Now that you mention it... He does share a striking resemblance to Raditz...
    • Actually veers into Fridge Brilliance since even canon Goku has been conflicted about acknowledging his Saiyan heritage and his family ties.
  • Frieza and Cooler's reaction to U3 Frieza's fifth from.
    Frieza: (pleasantly surprised) Ooh! I can do it too?
    Cooler: (annoyed) Don't be ridiculous! It's just an illusion!
  • Chapter 46 has U18!Vegeta vs. U13!Kakarotto. Though the end result seems obvious, U13!Goku one ups by turning into an Giant Ape, then turning Super Saiyan. Of course, someone in the background points out a resemblance...
    Bystander: But this is from DBG-
    Salagir: *Proceeds to beat up bystander* No!
    Asura: *Also beating up bystander* We thought of it independently!
  • During the Gast vs Raichi fight, there's some thing humorous about Gast putting all of his power into a punch against Broly and breaking his arm.
  • Zen Buu uses his stolen Hyper Armor's dimensional cutter to attack Gotenks. Gotenks dodged, but the camera cuts to reveal that Buu had actually used the attack to... carve a VERY flattering statue of his own body into one of the arena's pillars instead.
  • Most of the mini-comics are this. Some highlights include:
    Reader: Well, DBM has really gone down the drain...
  • This page, with the nice cameo to 3×3 Eyes and Videl's deadpan answer to Yakumo hiding his Distinguishing Mark, probably thinking she is completely done with weirdos and marks on their foreheads.
    Yakumo: I'm not with the bad guys!
    Videl: Oh yeah? What's with the headband then?
    Yakumo: It's a long story. Want to hear it?
    Videl: No.
  • In Bojack's origin story, one of the scientists who gave Bojack his power asks if it's okay to use prisoners as subjects. Another scientist says they can control them no problem and to just sit tight until the demonstration. The very next panel shows the Bojack gang killing everyone during the demonstration in a fit of Black Comedy mixed with a Gilligan Cut.
  • U1!North Kaioshin vs U3!Piccolo Daimao duking it out, and the poor Kaioshin failing to whistle while his opponent first wonders what the hell he is doing, before realizing and laughing at him.
  • In page 1437, when U18!Vegeta and U13!Vegeta are arguing and the discussion is about to devolve in a "Oh yeah? Then let's see who's stronger!" pissing match, they both notice U18!Goku, U16!Vegetto and U4!Buu sitting on a bench with popcorn waiting for the fun to begin, with Buu quipping "I can create a ring for you."
  • The fourth Universe 13 special has more than a few:
  • U13!Vegeta killing Ghost Nappa.
  • To make sure young Son Bra won't be a danger as a Super Saiyan, Vegetto had her spar with the most annoying person ever and see if she could stay calm. She succeeded.
  • During Babidi's attack, Salza and Jeeth barge in Universe 9's apartment... To their utter embarrassment. That's only the start of an embarrassing Humiliation Conga.
  • The reveal of the likely saviour of the tournament from Babidi.
  • U3!Broly replying to U3!Vegeta's challenge for the throne.
  • The most adorable Cell Jr. ever.
  • Why U9!Videl didn't allow the old Kaioshin to awaken her potential.
    U13!Raditz: What was the condition? Who did she have to kill?
    U9!Yamcha *making breast squeeze moves*: Her dignity, I believe.
  • Beerus' brief cameo asking spectators if they know of the Super Saiyan God is funny enough, but what places it here is that the first person he asks is a time traveler that went to the past to change it.
  • Moments from the second U4 special, "Make a Wish", where Zen Buu acts as a wish-granting god:
  • How does Cell deal with Majin Son Bra? That's how.
  • "Which group strategies do you know?"
    • Gohan and Piccolos' dorky answer, and the poor Helior warrior's reaction sell it all.
    • Cell's pouting aside glance, with his Deadpan Snarker answer is also comedy gold, with a hefty dose of well-deserved salt for his final comment about there only being one warrior capable "on par" at a time... or one that BECOMES capable to fight on the required level at the last moment.
  • Babidi being in completely over his head, at the mercy of his Hyper-Competent Sidekick, who is THANKFULLY loyal to him, but not any less reckless or unhinged : she takes what SHE thinks are the best measures, and not what HE thinks would be the best (read: the safest). Poor dude will have a heart attack before this whole thing is over.
    • Culminating with Bra doing the rational thing and isolating him from the whole group of opponents... Except he's now stranded in outer space up the proverbial creek without a paddle, with barely 10 minutes of oxygen, and only Bra knows where he is. His panicked reaction "Don't leave me!" as she teleports back to the battle is hilarious.
  • Universe 13 special "Public Enemies No. 1" is the sequel of "Dumb and Dumber"... And from the start it's just as hilarious:
    • After Kakarotto and Raditz destroyed Helior, Frieza is obviously furious at losing its technological secrets and Raditz retrieving Kakarotto against his wishes. Kakarotto suggests they gang up on him and kill him, and when Vegeta brings him to meet him he plans to murder the tyrant on that occasion... Then he senses his power level, and realizes just why the other three didn't want to piss him off.
    • Vegeta then removes his head and promises to kill Raditz and Nappa as well. He meets up with them an hour later... along with Kakarotto, casually leaning against a wall with his arms crossed and his head reattached with bandages giving Vegeta an unamused look.
      U13!Kakarotto: You're a real ass, Vegeta...
    • "We need to remain quiet until we get to the spaceships."
  • Vegetto meets the Great Saiyamen.
  • Last time we had left U4!Buu, he was trolling Babidi and stating menacingly he would not die of lack of air. We get to see what Buu has been up to. And it's hilarious : Buu's torture amounts to Poke the Poodle, but he knows he doesn't need to do more to freak Babidi out even more than he is.
    • Also:
      U4!Buu: Spoiler alert: you lost.
  • After U4!Buu uses his powers to repair the damage done to the stadium and revive everyone who was killed, one spectator in the stands comments that was the third time he has died, and how "rad" it was. Another says his Loyalty Card is almost filled up, and so the next time he dies he gets to go to the "VIP Paradise".
  • When the Universe 11 team is returned to their own universe, Dabura, free from Babadi's control, instantly turns him to stone with Buu refusing Babidi's demands to help him. Given Buu has otherwise nowhere to go, Dabura makes him the offer to come to the Demon World with him to help him reclaim his throne, and Buu asks if he can have a dog in return. Dabura actually has the perfect one in mind... Cerberus!
  • Uub vs Goku : Uub pretending to cast a spell that would turn Goku into candy, making him briefly freak out and take his distances; before sheepishly admitting he doesn't know how to do that.
  • After Vegeta goes and kills Cell, Piccolo notices him with some disbelief that Vegeta was carrying Senzu beans, and even pretended offering one to Cell to lower his guard. The hilarious part? They're just common beans!

How well does it match the trope?
