As a Moments subpage, all spoilers are unmarked as per policy. You Have Been Warned.

  • The entire monkey matchmaking mission is hilarious. Special mention goes to what is said after you pair them up.
    "Luna is going ape."
    "Skye is in seventh monkey heaven."
    • Was anyone else reminded of that sketch on The State?
    "The monkeys do not-a do it! They-a make-a love!"
  • While the reward isn't as great, pinning the Prophet as the culprit in the Mi'ihen Mystery mission gets you the funniest sequence by far.
  • Gippal and Yuna's first meeting, where he totally invades her space.
    Gippal: Never been this close to a celebrity before...
    Yuna: That's nice.
    Gippal: I could get used to this.
    Yuna: Let's not.
  • Possibly simultaneous with a Moment of Awesome, depending on your point of view, Yuna has her famous "I don't like your plan. It sucks."
    • Not helped by the fact that the camera dramatically cuts to everyone else present gasping at her statement.
  • Occasionally, a battle will start with this exchange:
    Paine: Stop that.
  • Another battle quote:
    Yuna: Give me a Y!
    Rikku: Give me a R!
    Paine: Give me a break.
  • And another:
    Rikku: I'm gonna kick you in the spleen!
    Paine: Spleen?
  • And another:
    Yuna: Duck soup!
    Paine: Duck what?
  • More...
    Paine: Come get some!
  • And more...
    Rikku: Dr. P is in the house!!
    Paine: Stop that!
  • Before the fight with the Zanarkand Ruins boss in Chapter 1:
    Rikku: Think we need a password?
    Paine: How about "kick its ass"?
  • Nearly any scene involving Brother.
  • The Hypello are pretty comical, such as one of the hot spring scenes in Chapter 4 with Barkeep giving Buddy a massage.
    • In another moment during Chapter 3, one of the Hypello in Mi'ihen is under attack by a rogue machina. While most victims you rescue run for their lives, the Hypello simply walks away calmly.
  • The various comical ways Shinra's CommSpheres go down in Chapter 5, from being eaten by a dog to being pecked by a chocobo to being punched out by Barthello.
    • In the previous chapter, if you watch the Besaid CommSphere enough times, you get to see the Aurochs practicing blitzball. One of them attempts a sphere shot several times, without success, before kicking the ball into the CommSphere.
      Shinra: They really suck.
    • Also within Chapter 4, we find out that Shinra has an invention called the "Chocoporter." Examining the Thunder Plains CommSphere allows you to capture a couple of chocobos this way... then the Chocoporter shorts out afterwards. And yes, the chocobos can be found on the airship, and serve basically no purpose.
    • Dona and her former Guardian-turned-boyfriend split up due to their differing philosophies; she supported the Youth League, he supported New Yevon. Check the Kilika sphere enough times and Dona will attach it to a balloon, which she pushes towards him. On seeing it, he breaks the sphere by yelling.
    Shinra: Such wanton and vocal destruction.
  • Advertisement:
  • The scene where Beclem kicks a blitzball at Keepa. When hit by the blitzball, Keepa flies backwards into a nearby wall. Also overlaps with awesome.
  • When Yuna sees a recording of "Tidus" trying so save someone named "Lenne." To say she does not take it well is an understatement. And it is hilarious.
  • Two, both related to Yuna's heroic tendencies. First there's the part where Yuna just can't say no to helping out, and Shinra's response is: "Hero. Summoner. Doormat." Then there's the part where Tobli is about to get Yuna to agree to sell tickets for him, and Paine figures out before she does that she's about to be roped into something she'll regret.
    Paine: Yuna. Run.
  • The massaging of Leblanc. It's right up there with Mimete's infamous Twister scene from Sailor Moon. Especially if you get the right area. Imagine this line from Yuna, taken out of context
    "She fell asleep! I'm that good?"
    • One of Leblanc's "bad spot" lines is a classic:
      "Where are you groping?!"
    • What's really funny is that immediately after that, Logos and Ormi come into the room and say that one massage and Leblanc is out like a light. "The boss fell asleep again?!" What a come-down for Yuna!
  • Prior to this scene, the party is attempting to sneak into Chateau Leblanc, when suddenly...
    Brother: (loudly, over intercom) This is Brother! How's it going?
    Rikku: Be quiet! This is a covert operation. Over and out.
    Brother: Rikku! How dare you speak to your leader like that!
    Rikku: Ooh! Shut up, already!
  • Yuna's reaction to Baralai implying the two of them were supposed to be married.
  • This Gag Echo when Leblanc steals the half sphere from Zanarkand.
    Yuna: Oh, poopie. note 
    Rikku: Yunie, don't talk like that.
    Yuna: I'm just copying you!
  • The entirety of the hot spring scene. Rikku approaches Yuna, has a peek and says "I know who's got it going on." She then tries to check Paine out as well, only for the two of them to gang up on her. Brother interrupts them by asking what's going on. When Yuna responds that they're "just taking a little dip", Brother sounds awed, announces a "code pink" and says he'll be right there. We then hear a bonk sound and Buddy's voice says "Don't worry, I knocked him out."
    • Just before the scene, the girls are wondering whether or not to use the spring. Rikku says it's "on sacred ground." Paine's response? "No one's looking."
  • One of the Bonus Bosses is called King VERMIN!.
    • The scan description for normal one states "Its fire attacks are a dead giveaway that it's in charge, foo'."
  • The amusing sound Shinra's suit makes when he's walking around, notably when he's planting CommSpheres around Spira.
  • In Gippal's Sphere, Auron has a cameo and makes the comment, "Even a jackass can save the world."
  • Wakka shouting Get a Room! when Yuna and Tidus are reunited.
  • If you recruit him after defeating him, Almighty Shinra has a few quips to him. It still acts as smug as Shinra does, and even hums the "Gullwings Go" theme upon a victory.
  • Rikku's special attacks in the Festivalist Dressphere. She makes the little goldfish in her baggy grow HUGE and fly at the enemy. One of her battle quotes is even "Fly, my pretties!"
  • Many of the fiend tales are downright hilarious:
    • The story for Nashorn talks about how he waited in line for hours to touch "it" and when got to "it", he was sucked in by a bright light and found himself in another location. At the end of his tale, his fiend children want him to play with them, but he can't be bothered. Later, the kids find a teleport sphere (save point) and are in awe at how shiny it is. Nashorn quickly realizes that "it" was the same thing that took him away and he dives after it to prevent his kids suffering from the same fate, only to teleport yet again. The kids then wonder where their father had teleported to this time.
    • The Bolt Drake's tale involves him kidnapping a bunch of kids, only to keep getting pricked by them over and over again until he decides to return them to their parents and vows to go after a calmer kid next time. It turns out that the "kids" were Lulu's dolls, which are known for their Scratch Damage in Final Fantasy X when Lulu used them in battle.
    • Boris is known for Crying Wolf. At the end of his tale, he cries for help, only for Shinra to ignore him. Turns out Boris really was in trouble since he was attacked by a Behemoth. Shinra comes back and defeats it.
    • The Tonberry's tale tells how his kind live very short lifespans. The end of the tale reveals why that is; the Tonberries have a nasty habit of stabbing each other, which are a One-Hit Kill. Eventually, all the Tonberries wind up killing each other while the much larger Tonberry tells them to knock it off.
    • The one with the Couerl involves it trying to figure out where to find the Gullwings' treasure, and suddenly changes to thinking where YRP change, and imagine the three of them in their lingerie. Seeing YRP surrounding him, Coeurl wonders if they overheard him, they couldn't possibly have read his thoughts. Shinra pipes up explaining at Coeurl that his invention can translate the fiend's thoughts, and it did. Couerl panics, knowing the inevitable outcome.
    • Fly Eye uses his new Fiend form to spy on people bathing in the Gagazet hotsprings. Someone spots him and swims towards Fly Eye, and, much to his horror, reveals herself to be an old lady (as are the rest of her friends in the hotsprings). Last we see of Fly Eye, he's sinking into the pool after getting upercutted.
    • Hrimthurs is on the hunt for "superpants." When he "finds" it, Hrimthurs learns an apparent Aesop, and decides to Go Commando. Shinra immediately butts in the video feed, saying that what's happening is "NSFW".
  • When fighting with the creature creation Brother, he attacks with his butt most of the time.
  • Buddy's Crosses the Line Twice story about how the Gullwings got their name: Frozen and starving, he and Brother were about to die when a lone gull led them to find the Celsius. Afterwards, they ate the gull.
  • In Chapter 5, after the Youth League members are allowed back into Kilika Temple, Bartello asks the party where Dona is since she wasn't with the group. Yuna and the others can only shrug and assume Dona truly wants nothing to do with him. The Game Over music piece is played as Bartello laments that he'll never see Dona again. When he sees a balloon rise up into the sky, Bartello screams Dona's name and jumps off the staircase, crashing into the jungle below.
  • Some of the Episode Concluded sequences can be pretty funny, albeit often in a Black Comedy kind of way. Episode Concluded is a "bad" status that the player can qualify for in certain sections if they failed to meet the requirements for Episode Complete. For example, if you talk to Rikku and Paine after Yuna sees the moogle in Luca, they will suggest that she's snapped and suggest returning to the airship. Doing so triggers Episode Concluded. Also, in the Episode Complete version of the Moonflow sequence, the girls are given the option to perform on-stage, but if you've skipped both the "Save the Hypello" and "Ticket Shelling" missions, then Tobli will end up going on-stage.
  • Meta example, and mileages may vary, but George Newbern's role as Mevyn Nooj is what landed him the role of Sephiroth, despite him using the voice he gave Superman instead. At least one editor has laughed at this.
  • Whereas X has Trauma Inns but they're redundant due to Save Points healing all HP, MP, and negative statuses, X-2 outright removes the inns-as-recovery mechanic. If you go to Guadosalam's inn and tell the innkeeper that you want to rest, she'll simply tell you there's a chair behind you.
  • Looking at Bevelle on the world map before the plot tells you to go there.
    Can we go somewhere else? Please?
  • In Kilika when everyone is making a fuss over the "awesome sphere", Yuna and Rikku are both giddy with excitement until Paine brings them back down to earth. Then after they claim the sphere, YRP go on their way with Paine's line of "Tough luck". Afterwards, Rikku says the people in Kilika "totally wet their pants".
  • The revelation that comes from the following exchange:
    Rikku: Awww... Where's the fun in being plain old regular sphere hunters?
    Brother: Yeah! What she said!
    Paine: Oh, no...
    Yuna: What?
    Shinra: Whenever Rikku and Brother agree... bad stuff happens.
    Yuna: That... can't be good.
  • When Yuna copies Rikku's expressions "Disasterrific" and "Oh, poopie!" Rikku gets told off by Brother for the former but lets Yuna get away with saying it. However, Rikku tells off Yuna for the latter expression and Yuna tries to justify it.
    • Also later in Djose Temple, after beating the Experiment for the first time, Paine tells Yuna to say something to the Al Bhed in the room with them. After which Rikku again reprimands Yuna for her use of foul language as Paine is seen laughing to herself in the background.
    Yuna: We really trashed it.
    Paine: Tell him this: (whispers to Yuna)
    Yuna: Dyga ouin deh lyh yht cruja ed! (Take your tin can and shove it!)
    Al Bhed: E mega ouin yddedita. Kiacc E ryja du piemt y cdnuhkan machina. (I like your attitude. Guess I have to build a stronger machina.)
    Yuna: Hey, he understood me!
    Rikku: Fydlr ouin myhkiyka! (Watch your language!)
  • After YRP beat the Experiment at its max level, Paine reveals Gippal got her interested in learning to speak Al Bhed. To which Rikku says Gippal has always been a player. Then Paine says even though Yuna and Rikku made her more open with them, she was annoyed with Yuna at first for never shutting up and really want to "lay down some serious hurt". Yuna is shocked by this and turns away from Paine. Rikku joins her but then they smile and hightail it out of there, as Paine accuses the cousins of being overdramatic and runs after them.
  • Episode Complete in Bevelle ends with Maroda calling out Isaaru on his Chronic Hero Syndrome. Rikku and Paine agree to finding a certain someone similar, but Yuna doesn't get the message. Then Rikku and Paine quickly leave Yuna behind.
  • Just before they get the Floral Fallal dressphere, Paine implies that Rikku is a bad influence on Yuna and Rikku is totally oblivious.
    Paine: Someone's turning Yuna into a bad girl.
    Rikku: Who?!
  • Outside Djose Temple, Yuna snaps at Rikku and Paine when they say she's probably getting old.
  • These lines spoken in Al Bhed:
    Rikku to Paine: Oui pimmo! (You bully!)
    Paine to Brother: Yht fru ycgat oui, yenrayt? (And who asked you, airhead?)
  • After obtaining Crimson Sphere 7 from Nooj outside the Den of Woe, Rikku nags Paine about knowing Nooj. Paine makes Yuna back off by claiming the latter will lose friends if she asks too many questions but Rikku keeps nagging. Paine deducts four respects points from Rikku, leaving 47 points left. When Rikku says she's still curious about Paine's past with Nooj, Paine takes another point from Rikku.
  • In Last Mission:
    • The awkward moment on the Celsius as YRP begin their newest mission.
    • Rikku's exhausting rundown of everything she's been up to.
    • YRP talking about their mission of crashing the imposter Yuna's concert while the real Yuna ran around in a giant moogle suit in disguise.

How well does it match the trope?
