Funny / Engine Sentai Go-onger

Go To

  • Generally, the cast has a tendency to make ridiculously silly faces at any given opportunity. In particular, Sousuke is a reaction face goldmine.
  • Yogostein forgot to declare war on humans until GP 3, despite letting the Monsters Of The Week run amok much earlier.
  • In GP 4, Gunpei tries to make a deal with a kid who accidentally got Gunpherd's Engine Cast. Being a roughneck, he's bad with kids, so he selected the method of approaching a Mafioso as Gunpherd suggests: In the classic drug-dealer ensemble, with a case full of candies. It didn't end well.

  • Gunpei again, in his lip-reading session of fail in GP 6.
  • Hanto and Gunpei's lake search in GP 7. The highlight of the scene is their surprised faces when something suddenly jumped out of the lake.
  • GP 12 is a Crowning Episode Of Funny: Sosuke and the Monster of the Week switched minds; it was hilarious! It also helps that said monster is voiced by Nobuyuki Hiyama, who's well known for his Chewing the Scenery.
    • And most of the laughs aren't just from those two. Gunpei's towel rub in particular just seals his Fountain of Memes status.
  • Everything Hanto did in GP 14 in order to get back to wooing Rena-sannote : He broke the others from Enlightenednote  Kamanote  Banki's hot spring illusion, proceeded to curb-stomp him singlehandedly, guided the others with their poses and team attacks, and fired the Super Highway Buster at it alone. As if it's not enough, he grabbed the Engine Cast from the Ginjiro before Sosuke finished asking Bomper for them, but then he mixed up the Engine Soul and Engine Cast combinations. note 
    • Hanto using the Super Highway Buster himself is also a moment of awesome.
    • The Crowning Moment of Funny in this episode was Carrigator's deep samurai voice coming from BearRV, saying "I AM A BEAR. VEE VEE VEE."
  • Everyone trying to come up with a way to counter Oil Banki's slippery hazard in GP 16, in particular Sosuke's eel theory and Gunpei explaining his with a drawing of what he claims to be a penguin.
    • What they settle with? Giant mops.
  • Ep 20 has Miu striking out on her own and trying to defeat the Monster of the Week on her own. Then this exchange comes
    Miu: [[Borrowed Catchphrase I’ll defeat you at Mach speed!
    Sosuke: Hey Miu, that’s my line.
    Miu: Shut up and watch me!
  • All the ghost mishaps in GP 24, courtesy of the Not-Quite-Dead Urameshimedes.
  • When Saki asked Miu in GP 26 if she ever had feelings for anyone, Miu remembers the earlier battle where she summoned all her energy to save Sosuke. Then being the Tsundere she is, she starts to scratch the flashback off the screen, complete with Saki asking what she's doing.
    • Revisited in the Straw Banki episode later on. Sosuke's been brainwashed, and as our heroes approach the Straw Banki, Miu lets slip that she actually prefers the brainwashed Sosuke. Cue the awkward silence, apart from Renn dropping his weapon in shock.
  • Again in GP 26, but this time in the ending. After BearRV rejected Jetras after his one instance of "crossdressing" creeped her out, she said that there are lots of handsome guys around her that she can choose from. The boys, observing the situation from a distance, all quickly retreat the moment they heard her. Hiroto's reaction was especially funny.
  • Every last second of GP 31 counts, but the best moment is Hiroto serenading Lumbiarco with a beautiful love ballad... only for it to backfire spectacularly, causing the monster to grow and sending a depressed Hiroto into a Corner of Woe for a good chunk of the episode. Later, when Yogostein and Kitaneides dress in drag and try to sing like a woman, they fail as well and join Hiroto in the Corner of Woe.
    • Yogostein and Kitaneidas singing in drag is hilarious, if purely because their "drag" fails so bad.
  • In GP 34, "Devilish woman", Heater Banki says he's gonna cause mayhem, only when we next see him, an old man is using him to heat his food. Later we find him in a hair salon used as a hair dryer. And ends up burning Hiroto's hair no less! What really sells it is the fact that both times Heater Banki is just going along with it until he gets caught almost as if he forgets what he's supposed to be doing!

  • In GP 39, the Matsuri Banki curses Gunpei and Hanto with ugly masks that can't come off, when the core trio pull a Big Damn Heroes and extract them — but upon seeing two guys gibbering in ugly masks, the first thing Saki does is scream in fear and punch them in the face. Which actually gets the masks off.
  • Given that Toripter's gender was a source of much confusion until GP 38, watching HIM "laying" an egg in GP 41 is somewhat amusing. (The egg had become lodged in his hull, so he was sitting over it in full-size form)
  • GP 44: Hiroto and Saki end up in what appears to be a graveyard, where they are attacked by ghosts. After Saki convinces him to face his fears, she and Hiroto attack and defeat the ghosts...only to find out that they were actually in a theme parks' haunted house attraction, and just beat up a couple of actors.

10 Years Grand Prix

  • The little kid, Souji who ended up at Sutou Detective Agency used Bomper as a table to put his drink. Bomper's surprises the boy by reminding him he is not a table, which caught Souji by surprise.
  • Then, we have Miu nagging the boys minus Hiroto for changing and losing their previous personalities and catchphrases as Go-Onger, with Gunpei being lame while Ren and Hanto did not say their respective catchphrase, Just Correct and It'll work out. However, for Sousuke despite having his personality intact like he always do back then, Miu was mad at him for not changing at all and demands the said red to change his personality.
  • After the Go-Ongers got dragged into Junk World, they encounter a mysterious silhouette who explained the situation that happened to them. The boys were frightened while Miu doesn't because the silhouette was in fact Hiroto because his voice sounds familiar. Of course Sousuke thought the said person was a ghost but Ren clarify that was not the case. When Hiroto tried to hug Miu, she slapped him that he rolled on the ground.
    Miu: Idiot brother, if you're alive, you should have contacted me!
    Hiroto: You've grown stronger... *immediately faints*
  • While Hiroto was trying to warn the Prime Minister about the danger, Bear RV just came down falling, creating an explosion and just dragged Hiroto along. Then the other guys laughed their asses off at Hiroto for being dumb enough to be unlucky for it. Hiroto's response?
Hiroto: Go ahead and laugh
  • In the first place, why Bear RV was there? She got into a fight with her husband, Speedor.
  • Gureizukii followed the heroes to the Junk World and had them cornered but accidentally stepped on a switch that activates a landmine beneath him. It is actually a prank and guess who does that? It was the three Gaiark Ministers, Kegareshia, Yogostein and Kitaneidas. Then, they came up and give a little beating to the said Zontark.
  • The leader of Zontark, Noizun himself. First things first, he has smartphone as his eyes along with old communication technology. Second, he uses a smartphone of all things to create an earthquake. Third, his sword like weapon was in fact a stick to hold phone camera that people used for selfie or welfie. It's absurd enough as it is.
  • We also have Kegarashia turned into Go-On Yellow, which she named herself Kega Yellow. While she did transformed, her pipe handle was still present on her head.
    • Don't forget that Yogostein and Kitaneidas were left behind on Junk World and they dejectedly wondered why she was in human world.
    • Of course, she did fine in the beginning but it all becomes Epic Fail when she lets her guard down.
    • When Saki was freed, she just rammed Kegarashia out from the suit, which the latter sulk that she wants to be it a little longer.
  • Then, we have Go-Ongers overkill Noizun with their mechas even though he does not turned giant.
  • At the end, we have Gunpei pestering Saki into wearing the Go-On Yellow jacket but she refuses. Gunpei even dragged Hanto in front of him then tells the latter to move it, which he was confused why Gunpei pulled him in the first place. Afterwards, Hanto got hit by the door when Miu came in with a bucket and a cleaning cloth. Then, Miu shoved the cloth to Hiroto's face because he was training instead of helping with the cleaning duty. She even put the bucket on his head, causing Hiroto had trouble walking around. Oh, and Hanto got hit again by the door, this time from Ren, who came in to bring omelettes.
  • Sousuke replaces the detective signboard with Go-Onger's signboard and put it at an angle instead of straight, causing Ren and the rest to ask him why he did so.

How well does it match the trope?
