- When you talk to the house leaders at the beginning of the game, you are given the option to learn more about the students in their respective houses. Whereas Edelgard and Dimitri say mostly good things about their classmates, Claude usually accompanies his descriptions with some choice remarks:
- Hilda:Claude: If you look up 'lazy' in the dictionary... her picture won't be there because she never got around to submitting it.
- Lorenz:Claude: He's really devoted and honest... Though I wouldn't mind never hearing him talk about his noble obligations ever again.
- Not that everyone else is immune to snark; when overviewing Hubert, Edelgard says he can come off as cold and rude at first glance... because he is. She also bluntly admits that Ferdinand's competitiveness toward her is rather irritating and makes an offhand remark about his family being too proud of their status.
- Dimitri's no exception, either. He's outwardly the nicest and most polite of the three Lords, but even he gets a bit embarrassed as he talks about Sylvain being a "skirt-chaser," and mentions how Annette caused an explosion in the kitchen.
- Manuela introduces herself with this gem:Manuela: I'm a physician, a songstress, and available.
- Even funnier is that, when given the prompt to respond, Byleth will only be interested in Manuela's career as a physician or songstress. And if you're male and go to her room later, she will teasingly suggest it was for a tryst.Manuela: I do love a man who knows what he wants. Lock the door.
- Talking to Manuela in the monastery throughout the First Part results in her discussing multiple disastrous dates.
- Even funnier is that, when given the prompt to respond, Byleth will only be interested in Manuela's career as a physician or songstress. And if you're male and go to her room later, she will teasingly suggest it was for a tryst.
- You can look up the ages of your party members. While some are deliberately vague, Manuela's simply says "Secret".
- The way the in-game tutorials are set up leads to the amusing image of Byleth's students teaching them how to lecture them.
- Returning lost items can be quite funny and revealing of personality. Sylvain managed to lose a tube of lipstick (a gift for the next girl to catch his eye), Caspar misplaced his tattered overcoat (which he never wears anyway), Manuela left her hangover remedy in her office, Bernadetta freaked out over leaving her needlework directly outside her door, several students misplace an object 20 feet away from them. The real kicker is during the fishing tourney, Raphael somehow not only misplaces a burlap sack filled to the brim with rocks; it's also in the dining hall, where Raph spends most of his time.
- One of the early game missing items is strongly implied to be Dorothea's underwear, which Caspar is unknowingly using as a sweat rag. Byleth can only stare uncomfortably at the realization and decide it's best to not tell either of them what happened.
- Most notably, one of Seteth's lost items is a quill pen... which is found literally in the same room, right there in front of him.
- Claude can leave his poison bottle on the desk of Lorenz. While returning it doesn't get a funny reaction from Byleth, the fact that Claude misplaced the item and the fact that the intended target was Lorenz...
- A student can request different focuses, and sometimes, the reasoning can be rather funny. Take, for instance, Sylvain requesting to study Faith magic because he heard that girls like it. In fact, the majority of Sylvain's requests for different focuses is about impressing girls (well, until the time skip hits where he tones it down a lot).
- Even after the timeskip, if Sylvain requests to study magic, his comment is rather amusing.Sylvain: I want to study reason and faith. What, surprised? Hey, I may be rough around the edges, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a little magic!
- Petra states that she is proficient with swords and bows while being an expert at moving stealthily, but she is worried that people would brand her a Thief (a class that specializes in those things). Even more amusing is that Thief is her default class option.
- Students will often suggest goals to you based upon what they are excelling in or will suggest a "class" for them to want to excel in. Humorously, they may sometimes come up and suggest to you the exact same goals you have already laid out for them!
- Even after the timeskip, if Sylvain requests to study magic, his comment is rather amusing.
- Rhea is a potential instructor for Byleth in free time segments. Among the skills she can teach sound like what an Archbishop would teach (Swords, Reason, and Faith). The last one? Brawling. Basically, a graceful and dainty-looking woman can teach Byleth how to effectively punch someone.note
- The cross-house battles have some rather funny moments.
- Before the battle, on the Black Eagles route, Edelgard has a rather amusing insult toward Dimitri and Claude, when Claude asks if he can join their strategy meeting.Edelgard: Simply tell me your weaknesses, and you're welcome to stay. But is there enough time to cover them all?
- During the very first fight, Claude will attempt to distract Dimitri by accusing him of having a crush on Edelgard. It doesn't work.
- If fighting against the Golden Deer in the Battle of the Eagle and the Lion, Lorenz will boast about his skills and charge ahead towards your side. Claude sounds annoyed at this and can only comment about how it isn't exactly the smartest plan.
- Fighting with the Golden Deers, this person becomes Caspar (or Ferdinand) of the Black Eagles, and Edelgard is both resigned and exasperated that things aren't going off well.
- If Edelgard and Claude get into a fight, Claude tells Edelgard a rat is by her feet, causing Edelgard to scream in shock and back off. Claude is surprised by this, and admits that he didn't think she'd actually fall for it and that she'd be scared. (This becomes a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment when you learn just why Edelgard hates rats, though.)
- Before the battle, on the Black Eagles route, Edelgard has a rather amusing insult toward Dimitri and Claude, when Claude asks if he can join their strategy meeting.
- While most students are understandably horrified the first time they kill, you then have Felix chastising the bandit for not putting up a better fight, Hilda expressing joy despite claiming to have wanted to sit back, and perhaps most surprising, Annette overjoyed at her own power.Annette: I did it! See? I'm a great fighter!
- One of Ferdinand's generic quotes when selecting him on the map during battle is a plain "I am Ferdinand von Aegir" in English. In Japanese, however, it is a very hammy "WAGA NA WA... FERDINAND... VON... AEEEEEGIR!"note
- The fact that anyone can use any weapon can create some funny moments. Shrinking Violet Bernadetta can use gauntlets and Squishy Wizard Marianne can use axes.
- The White Heron Cup: a big dance competition between the houses occurring just before Not-Christmas. Over half of your students will beg you not to pick them, leading to some hilarious panicked lines. You can still pick anyone to represent your house, and there is nothing stopping you from picking someone probably not too well-suited for dancing, like Dedue, Raphael, or Hubert. Bonus points if you actually managed to get their Charm level high enough to actually win the contest, to which they react appropriately.Hubert: The judges must not be in their right mind.
Raphael: Me? Uh...really?
Caspar: I won? I won! How did I win?!
Dedue: Is this a joke?
- The reward for winning the White Heron Cup is the ability for your representative to become a Dancer. That means you could have any of your students be your Dancer. Including the aforementioned Dedue, Raphael, and Hubert.
- Dimitri in particular begs for Byleth not to choose him for the representative. Then, when actually chosen....
- Claude, when approached about the competition, comments about the poor schmuck chosen to be the house representative. Again, nothing is stopping you from making him your representative....Claude: Me? Don't be unreasonable, Teach! Ugh I mean, if I have to make a miracle happen, I guess I'll figure it out...
- The mechanics can also make the competition a riot. If you manage to empty out the other houses, only the non-recruitables are left to enter the competition. Since the mechanics allow for one judge to frequently vote for someone else no matter how superior your entrant's Charm is, you can have hilarious results such as Dedue being voted more charming than Edelgard.
- Bernadetta will freak out at the possibility of being chosen, and be relieved if you don't chose her. When you pick her, she will ask if you deliberately chose her to humiliate her. In the Japanese version, she says more lines than what's being said on the text box.
- Marianne's is her going "Wait, what?" if you choose her.
- The kicker is that you can still get support points when you choose them, even when they practically beg you not to!
- On the flip side, some students are very enthusiastic about participating, even when you wouldn't expect it of them. Particularly memorable is Caspar, who claims to be an excellent dancer but due to his poor charm growthnote , it's perfectly possible for him to be one of, if not the only student you have who couldn't possibly win even with the free +5 boost to charm representatives get if you tutor them in dancing.
- Another hilarious example is Lorenz, whom is quite eager to show his stuff at the White Heron Cup. Thing is, Lorenz starts out with the lowest base charm stat with an average-at-best charm growth. This means that like with Caspar, it's entirely possible for Lorenz' charm to not be high to win the competition even with the charm boost if you got particularly unlucky with the Random Number God.
- When you fight a Miklan-transformed Black Beast, you get a tutorial by Sothis on how to deal with one. One option asks "How'd You Learn This Anyway?" Picking it leads to Sothis yelling at Byleth to stop talking and fight the monster already.
- Some of the combinations when you assign students chores can produce absolutely hilarious results.
- Assigning Edelgard and Ferdinand has Edelgard question why you would do so, causing Ferdinand to question if Edelgard thinks lowly of him. She bluntly states she does.
- Assigning Dedue and Dimitri to weed gardens:Dimitri: By the way, sometimes you find edible plants among the weeds.
Dedue: Please do not eat the weeds.
Dimitri: I am just saying...
- Assigning Felix and Ashe to weed the gardens give you this:Felix: Just a few weeds. I don't see a big deal.
Ashe: Don't underestimate weeds. They can swallow a whole building before you know it.
Felix: That's unbelievable. That's literally unbelievable.
- Assigning Hanneman and Lysithea together results in Hanneman going into full Parental Substitute mode and tries to have her let him do it. Lysithea can only get annoyed at this, with Hanneman coming across as a My Beloved Smother.
- Lorenz and Ferdinand has Lorenz proudly proclaiming he will take care of it, to which Ferdinand agrees to allow him to do so he can demonstrate "ideal nobility". If the pair don't do well, Lorenz apologizes while Ferdinand chastises him for his performance.
- If you have Hanneman and Manuela working on a Group Task together after they reach Support Rank A, they'll agree to try and bury the hatchet together to finish the job. But if they end up with a "Good" performance, the lowest rank...Manuela: Hey, Hanneman! I thought we were supposed to bury the hatchet.
Hanneman: You're the one who buried the hatchet, woman. In my back! I did my level best to keep things going.
- Normally, recruiting students from other houses requires some stats and proficiency to be raised, but if you play as Female Byleth and attempt to recruit Sylvain, he asks to join your house immediately, regardless of stats. No, seriously.
- In the Crimson Flower route where Manuela is recruited, she talks about how she learned the Death Knight was a general in the Adrestian Empire. Still angry about how he stabbed her five years ago, she marched up to him and told him who she was and what he did and then he apologized, sincerely and heartfeltly. She admits the settlement of the grudge was a bit of a letdown after all this time.
- Shortly after defeating the Alliance on the Crimson Flower route, there is a scene where Byleth is walking by the dorms and hears a shriek. Said shriek is coming from Edelgard after seeing a rat in her room. Byleth has a few dialogue options that let you troll her by talking about how cute it is, with Edelgard getting more wound up each time they call her cute. The scene only gets funnier when Byleth notices a portrait (of them) sitting on her table, and Edelgard starts to panic. She makes up a poor excuse for them to leave, only to give up when they note how they already saw the picture and starts using her Imperial authority to demand that they forget what they saw.
- Later in the Crimson Flower storyline, Edelgard will hole up in one of the second-floor dormitories... because she painted the aforementioned portrait of Byleth during the five years they were missing and now that they're back she's super embarrassed about it, though she tries to claim it's because the portrait just isn't very good. She flat-out orders Byleth not to come in.
- What it is even funnier is that the option to do Advanced Drills with her is still available, meaning you can imagine Edelgard practicing with/tutoring you in axes while still holed up inside her room.
- A paralogue after the timeskip for Edelgard has Hilda's older brother Holst requesting help after a force of Almyran soldiers attacked a mountain path called Fódlan's Locket. After the battle, it turns out Holst couldn't defend the pass because he got food poisoning from eating bad mushrooms and was too sickly to issue commands. Edelgard has a Stunned Silence reaction at how utterly mundane of an issue it was before stating she should go visit him. Which is followed up with her trying to will herself to go visit him before giving up due to a fear of getting sick after thinking over how disgusting it would look. But if Byleth expresses a desire to go take a look themselves, she insists that they do so that she can get to know what it looked like out of morbid curiosity.
- Once you know the Flame Emperor's true identity, watching their Not So Above It All moments out of costume takes on a double dose of hilarity (for example, seeing Fódlan's most dangerous terrorist get tricked into freaking out over a rat or complain about being paired on an assignment with a classmate she doesn't like).
- Duke Aegir, Ferdinand's father. He has an appearance similar to Oliver, another corrupt noble from the Tellius duology.
- When visiting Bernadetta at her room in Chapter 5, her greeting is to scream "I'm not secretly eating cake!". You can literally hear her swallow the cake right beforehand.
- Lorenz has the most hilarious choir practice line which really must be heard in its full glory.
- There's something rather amusing about what happens to "those who slither in the dark" on the Azure Moon route: They lose their infiltrators to Garreg Mach, the members they had occupying Faerghus and helping Edelgard, Edelgard herself, and their leader Thales. All of their plans in Fódlan they've been working on for years are completely derailed. But that's not the funny part. The funny part is that, unlike every other route, Dimitri and company are never really aware of them as an enemy faction. Given that they serve as the Climax Boss on several other routes, it's decidedly amusing to realize that they ended up as the Unknown Rival to Dimitri.
- Similarly, Acheron's demise on the Azure Moon route. He teleports in with a bunch of reinforcements after the player advances further into the map, but given that he's a Squishy Wizard who likely just teleported right into the middle of your army, it's very likely that he'll die minutes after spawning. His battle quote almost feels self-aware, too:Acheron: As they say, if you can't beat them, join them. I'm not in for a beating, am I?
- It is entirely possible to end Lorenz's paralogue in one turn if you have Lysithea or Linhardt Warp your strongest unit and watch them utterly wreck his shit in one hit.
- Claude's interactions with Acheron are quite amusing. If you have Claude fight Acheron in Lorenz' paralogue, Claude will remark about how a "good-for-nothing" inherited the territory, infuriating Acheron and prompting him to call Claude the "good-for-nothing", apparently unaware that he's talking to the future leader of the Alliance. In Chapter 16 of Verdant Wind, as Acheron contemptuously talks about the "declining Alliance," Claude points out that Acheron's own castle is burning, just to the north of the bridge, courtesy of said Alliance.
- Gameplay and Story Segregation can be Played for Laughs thanks to the player's actions and the fact units can be customized skill-wise to their liking:
- Claude, during his support arc with Marianne, will tell her "Just because your ancestors were thieves, does that mean you're a thief too, even if you've never stolen anything?" It's possible for the player to decide to up Marianne's sword skills and class her into a thief... meaning Claude is talking to a thief.
- Hilda mentions she wants to be a support class... but her base stats and growths favour a fighter, with a budding talent in heavy armour. So she will spend several supports asking not to be on the front lines when she's an ideal front-line fighter.
- Mercedes and Dimitri's C support is about how Mercedes is... not very good with swords. At all. However, you can make Mercedes into a sword-fighting class who is probably better with swords than Dimitri is, and they will act like she's clumsy.
- Bernadetta's base class favours archer befitting of her personality. But you can decide to reclass her into a front-line fighter.
- You can have Marianne go from being a support Squishy Wizard to a full-on massive tank if you turn her into an Armor Knight, and then a Fortress Knight if you choose to sacrifice her magic skills for a more physical one.
- Linhardt's growths favor him as a magic user, especially as a healer, to keep off the front lines. But again, nothing is stopping you from making him, say, a Brawler and then a Grappler. You can even make him an Assassin, and thus have a person who dislikes violence capable of doing One Hit Kills for more irony.
- Failing an exam will usually get the student in question to make disappointed remarks about trying. Lysithea, however, thinks otherwise.Lysithea: Failed? It's due to your poor judgement!
- In the Azure Moon route, during the ball when you meet Dimitri outside, you have the option of asking him "[isn't he] going to dance with Edelgarde or Claude?". If you pick Claude, he finds it Actually Pretty Funny.
- On the Verdant Wind route, after taking the Great Bridge of Myrddin, Byleth meets Claude and Judith's retainer, "Nardel". He jovially greets Claude with, "Is that you, kiddo?" After Claude clears his throat, he backpedals and issues an unconvincing apology by explaining he mistook Claude for one of the local children.
- Some of the Critical quotes qualify for this.Petra: You will be slapped down!
Hilda: You're making me work!
- Just the fact that Hilda is apparently the only character to note that Hero's Relics like hers pulsate as if they are alive and that she finds them gross. This becomes unintentional Black Comedy with knowledge of what the relics actually are.
- Hacking the game allows you to carry out monastery activities with units that aren't meant to be player-controlled, including having teatime with the Death Knight. This becomes Hilarious in Hindsight after the Wave 3 DLC, where the Death Knight, or more appropriately, Jeritza/Emile, does enjoy teatime and sweets.
- If you choose to share a meal with Dimitri and Dedue, this exchange happens:Dedue: Mmm.
Dimitri: Remember this, Professor. That look on Dedue's face means he thinks the food is good.
- The paralogues against the Wind Caller and The Immovable basically have Flayn, who is their niece, basically tell them to shut up as they tried to causally talk to her when she faces them in battle in fear of them revealing her true identity as Cethlean. Which is funny for the Wind Caller as he basically told the other characters, including his own brother Seteth, to leave him alone or die, but he reverts to a doting uncle when he meets Flayn.
- In Dorothea and Ingrid's paralogue: Dorothea proposes they investigate another one of Ingrid's would-be suitors to gauge his character, cue the start of the paralogue where your party is suddenly in a land surrounded by melting lava!
- In The Immovable's paralogue, Linhardt, after telling about the special weapon in Lake Teutates, falls asleep before Leonie and Byleth can set off. Because they can't wake him up, Leonie ends up proposing Byleth carry Linhardt to the lake. Byleth expresses they do not want to lug him for the entire trip, so Leonie suggests that everyone take turns carrying Linhardt instead. The best part is that Linhardt slept through the entire trip to the lake, since he only wakes up once the Paralogue actually begins, implying the army really did have to take turns carrying him.
- After completing the Wind Caller's paralogue, Claude wonders about how they couldn't find any evidence of Macuil in Sreng and laughs off the possibility the Wind Caller was a transformed Macuil. Which is hilarious because said Wind Caller had the Crest Stone of Macuil that Claude actually noticed and commented on and yet still failed to consider the idea the Wind Caller is Macuil.
- And speaking of the Wind Caller, once you defeat him, he falls asleep. Claude feels its kind of anti-climatic, but goes to look for any treasure he can find.
- Before the assault on Fort Merceus, if you have Bernadetta on the team and agree with her that it's going to be annoying, she gets overjoyed, tries to hug Byleth, and promptly slams into her own closed door.
- On the finale of the Crimson Flower route, if you kill Annette while Gilbert is alive, he will charge through patches of fire as fast as his class allows. It's... oddly funny, though also sad when you consider what you just did...
- The sheer Mood Whiplash of the end of Blue Lions Chapter 11. Dimitri has just found out the Flame Emperor's identity and had a massive Freak Out!, and then the game goes, "You protected the Crest Stones! You got a bunch of stuff! Dimitri is the MVP!"
- Every recruitable character has their own way of asking to join Byleth or responding to them asking. Some can be quite amusing, especially with excitable or bombastic characters. Catherine, for instance, says the following. Doubly funny since in her first support with them, she states Byleth isn't that good looking.Catherine: Hey, professor. You're good-looking, you know that? At the same time you look like someone who was born to fight. I bet we'd get along. I'm also good-looking and born to fight, heh! Need any help with your class?
- Annette enjoys cleaning. Her Relic grants her the unique Combat Art Dust.
- In the monastery during the Black Eagles version of Chapter 5, Hubert gets in a hilarious snide remark at the Knights of Seiros' expense.Hubert: For House Gautier to invite us on to their land, they must be desperate. But at least we'll have the stalwart knights ready to stand around and watch us do all the work.
- In chapter 18 of Verdant Wind, while talking about disguise plans with Hilda at monastery exploration, the two choices that you can choose to say involves dressing Hilda as Edelgard, or dress Claude as a woman. The fact that Byleth even suggested these choices to start with makes them come off as Not So Above It All underneath their stoic front during this moment.
- Not to mention, Claude is actually in the same room as Hilda was right at this very chapter. He might not say anything about the choice Byleth would pick but one has to wonder what is running through his head when he hears Byleth's suggestions...
- Talking to Dorothea during the exploration stage of an early Verdant Wind/Silver Snow chapter has her trying to imitate the Gatekeeper's catchphrase in a cheeky manner.
- If you manage to complete Mercedes and Caspar's paralogue in the right way, and have Caspar finish off the Death Knight, you will earn his scythe... which you could then use against him.
- Some of the seminars you can get have rather amusing descriptions.
- Ferdinand: "Begin a seminar on a fighting style using sword and lance skills that all nobles should be adept in."
- Caspar: "Begin a seminar on how to win arguments and gain the upper hand in one-on-one combat, or how to give it your all on the battlefield."
- Sylvain: "Begin a seminar on fighting style that incorporates flashy techniques and evocative poses and always draws attention."
- Raphael: "Begin a seminar on a fighting style that focuses on dominating the enemy with pure, strong, well-fed muscle."
- Jeritza: "Begin a seminar on sword and lance techniques that are considered the best throughout the Empire. No talking permitted."
- Anna: "Begin a seminar on sword and bow skills learned through unavoidable confrontations in the life of a business entrepreneur."
- In the Crimson Flower route, after the fall of Derdriu, Dorothea fantasizes about what an opera about Edelgard and Byleth would involve.Dorothea: I'm sure you'll be played by the most handsome actor of the time. Hearts will pound as he takes the stage.note A diva will play Edie! [chuckles] You'll fall madly in love, even if it isn't historically accurate.
- One of the new quests that are available following the Wave 3 DLC involves Byleth joining in a tournament to fight against a group of students... why? Because these students believed that Byleth is getting way too cozy and friendly with the students and think that a friendship between a teacher and a student is unacceptable. The participants for the tournament? They're students that have not been recruited by Byleth themselves and they all share the same gender as the Byleth you play as. This comes across as funny to most players as the way the quest started out and the quest dialog makes it seem like the group of students sanctioning this tournament are being petty at how Byleth earned the respect of the students and also gain popularity in such a short time. If you already recruited most of the students to your house by the time this quest is available, then the participating students are instead, nameless NPC's, which makes this quest doubly funny.
- The funny part comes from the fact that it's possible for one of your opponents to be Manuela, of all people, if you play as Female Byleth. You know, the teacher who flirts with anybody? A humorous Irony at it's finest.
- If you play as Male Byleth, Sylvain, and even funnier, Lorenz, can potentially show up as an opponent instead if they haven't been recruited.
- In Sylvain's C Support with Ingrid, she reminds him of the time he hit on her grandmother when he was eight, loudly enough for other students to overhear.Ingrid: When you were eight, you came on to my sweet, sweet granny! My GRANNY!
- Sylvain's response to the above does not help the situation when he admits that Ingrid's grandmother was gorgeous.
- Ingrid also mentions a time where he "Made eyes at that scarecrow", to which Sylvain claims it to be a "Sad and tragic accident."
- This exchange between Linhardt and Dorothea:Linhardt: And how necessary is charm? It just gets in the way of living your life.
Dorothea: If you lack charm, nobody will give you a second glance.
Linhardt: Right, which means more time for napping.
- Bernadetta is just a walking funny moment in all her supports, thanks to her shyness and nervousness.
- In her C Support with Ferdinand, she starts having a panic attack while Ferdinand, in his own way, wants to help her get more social. This culminates in her shoving him to the ground and him potentially spraining his wrist. While he doesn't blame her in the slightest, she now worries that she's marked herself as his "eternal rival."
- In her C Support with Edelgard, she decides to start taking notes on how to be more confident by following the future emperor's example. She decides the best way to do this is to follow her throughout the day. This leaves the usually unflappable Edelgard exasperated.
- After an otherwise heartwarming C support with Byleth, she descends into panicked denial when Byleth asks if she was singing in the greenhouse the other day. She runs off in embarrassment.Bernadetta: Useless! Worthless! Unmarriageable! Augh!
- In her C Support with Sylvain, he starts praising the book she had written and left behind in the library, but she's so shocked that she left it out in the open she goes catatonic and misses most of his praise. When she finally comes to and runs away, she starts musing she'll have to burn the book and briefly entertains burning him too to get rid of all the evidence before she snaps out of it.
- In her C Support with Hubert, he tells Bernadetta that there had been a figure walking around in the middle of the night with a needle. When Bernadetta says that she'd been embroidering, Hubert states he suspected as much, and she leaves him no choice. Bernadetta immediately flees, as Hubert slowly gives chase like he's a horror movie villain. When Hubert catches up, he fulfills his duty... to tell her that she shouldn't be running around with that needle or she would poke herself or someone else. Bernadetta is so shocked/terrified that she passes out while standing up.
- In her C Support with Ingrid, Ingrid tries to get her out of her room in order to attend training. When Bernadetta refuses, Ingrid simply kicks the door down, terrifying Bernadetta into compliance, since if Ingrid is willing to kick a door down just to get at a classmate, what would she do to someone she truly doesn't like?Ingrid: Don't ask questions you don't want answers to.
- In her C Support with Felix, she's so terrified of him that when she sees his sword, she panics and disarms Felix before running away. Felix's response? To watch in awe because he's never seen that technique before. Her even approaches her in B support to ask her to teach him what she did. Better yet, it apparently involves "waving her arms around like a madman" for a few seconds.
- Bernadetta and Raphael's C support starts with Bernadetta trying to play an instrument in the privacy of the greenhouse. She jokingly asks the flowers what they thought of her performance, and is predictably freaked out when she gets a response.Bernadetta: Isn't that right, little flower? You're the only one who heard, aren't you? What did you think?
Raphael: That was amazing!
Bernadetta: (shrieks) Why's your voice so deep?!
- Bernadetta and Petra's B rank support. Starting with Bernie lamenting that she is on hunting duty, Until Petra appears and begins to guide her on how to hunt. One such way involves comparing hunting to collecting vegetables, in her own words: "You take the blade in your hand and take the lives of the vegetables". Which results in Bernadetta to panic about being a "Vegetable Murderer". It all seems to look up with Petra's knowledge until the hunting itself. In which Bernie is chased by a RABBIT she is hunting!Bernadetta: [in panic] No! stay back! I'm sorry mister rabbit! I didn't mean it! [sobbing] Why are you the one chasing me!? Ow!
- Bernadetta and Alois' C-support opens with Alois wondering how to approach Bernadetta... only for Bernadetta to talk casually and friendly with him and Alois was so distracted that he didn't realize that Bernadetta had just talked to him.
- Bernadetta makes a Hurricane of Puns involving her name in her support with Seteth.Bernadeta: Bernie's all "Berned" out now. I guess if they're no good, we'll just have to "Bern" 'em all, eh? Heh-heh.
Seteth: Let's... leave the topic of burning aside for now, shall we?
- Ferdinand's and Dorothea's C support starts off with this exchange:Ferdinand: Ah, Dorothea! The dining hall seems so much brighter with you here.
Dorothea: Ferdie! I must say, you are quite adept with flattery. Please, give me some more.
- And later in the same conversation, it's her bluntness in tone that really sells it:Dorothea: You got it right on the first try. I hate you.
- And later in the same conversation, it's her bluntness in tone that really sells it:
- In Mercedes' C support with Byleth, she reveals that she was once in such a hurry to get to the training grounds that she forgot to get dressed.
- Sylvain's C Support with Mercedes has the philanderer actually attempting to make a friend. It's... awkward.Sylvain: How do I say this without digging myself any deeper?
- Their entire support chain is generally emotional, but another hilarious moment comes at the end of their B-support. After confiding in each other how their Crests have ruined their lives, they proceed to joke about the silly fixation their culture has on Crests.Mercedes: Oh Sylvain, please save me from the burdens of having a Crest!
Sylvain: Oh, yes! I think I love you, Mercedes! Let's get married and have Crest babies!
- For more humor with a touch of irony, if you get their paired ending, they do get married, but their oldest child doesn't actually have a Crest.
- Their entire support chain is generally emotional, but another hilarious moment comes at the end of their B-support. After confiding in each other how their Crests have ruined their lives, they proceed to joke about the silly fixation their culture has on Crests.
- Annette, being a Genki Girl hard worker, loves singing silly songs to herself while she's working, which leads to all sorts of hilarity.
- In their supports, Claude overhears Annette singing about flowers and proceeds to give her a full literary analysis and critique of the song, somehow warping it into a bleak observation of death and mortality. He is genuinely intrigued when she exclaims that her song was only about flowers growing out of the earth.
- Something similar happens in her supports with Felix, who overhears her singing about food. In their B support he questions her about the song and the dance steps she was doing while singing - because of his naturally sarcastic demeanor, Annette assumes he's mocking her and storms away in a temper, baffling Felix who was genuinely interested.Annette: YOU'RE EVIL, FELIX!
- Flayn and Sylvain's C support has the former accusing the latter of hitting on horses and chickens. She also demands that Sylvain stand ten feet away from her because Seteth told her to stay away from him. She then storms off before he can even deliver the news that Byleth wanted them to meet up, and then desperately tries to get her to come along.
- The gift of fully voiced supports has blessed us with these hilarious gems from Edelgard (Ferdinand C, Byleth A) and Claude (Marianne B).
- Dimitri of all people can't stop cracking up at Alois' terrible dad jokes. It's even funnier when it's post-time skip Dimitri.
- Everything about Sothis' S support is hilarious. Sothis suddenly popping back up, her surprisingly passionate and hammy Love Confession, Byleth's confusion on where to put the ring, and finally ending the support with Sothis picking up their previous conversation: scolding Byleth for walking into Solon's trap over five years ago.
- After spending his C Support with Sylvain trying to convince Dimitri to lighten up, his B support discovers that Dimitri tried that and tried to flirt with girls as Sylvain does...only to have to hide in Sylvain's room while Sylvain bails him out.
- The entire B-support is side-splittingly hilarious, just because they both treat the matter like life and death. They seriously talk as if Sylvain bailing Dimitri out is akin to him going to war.Sylvain: Relax, Your Highness. Relax. I'll sort this whole thing out, real easy. All we have to do is figure out how to make this girl lose interest in you. And making girls lose interest is what I'm best at! You just wait right there, and I'll fix everything.
Dimitri: It was my naiveté that brought this about. I cannot place this immense burden on your shoulders...
Sylvain: This is no job for an amateur. You need a professional's help. Trying to do everything yourself has never served you so well, so just leave this to the master. Even the dagger incident could have been avoided if you had just talked with me beforehand.
Sylvain: A knight of Faerghus never goes back on his word...isn't that right?
Dimitri: You're a good man, Sylvain. I'm sorry to do this to you.
Sylvain: Please, Your Highness. I've spent years honing my skills for just this situation. Watch and learn.
- Even funnier, if this support is opened right after the 5 year time skip, it turns from a serious question of whether or not Dimitri angered some Imperial soldiers to Dimitri awkwardly revealing that it's not. Mood Whiplash at its finest.
- "The dagger incident" is likely referring to Dimitri attempting to woo Edelgard when they were kids by giving her a knife as a farewell gift. Take your pick over what's funnier—that Dimitri is still mortified over it, or that Sylvain was apparently a casanova even back then.
- The entire B-support is side-splittingly hilarious, just because they both treat the matter like life and death. They seriously talk as if Sylvain bailing Dimitri out is akin to him going to war.
- Edelgard's supports with Lysithea deal with pretty somber subjects, but one point of hilarity is that Edelgard keeps saying "Good Girl" to Lysithea (presumably knowing that she gets irritated when people treat her like a child) only to offer up sweets that quickly quell the younger girl's ire. This leads Lysithea to complain about how she can't get bought over by sweets, and then taking them anyways.
- Lorenz and Sylvain's supports revolve around failing to outflirt each other with women and roasting the other's attempts.Sylvain: When I saw you, I just had to come over and say hello because finding you here...feels like fate. Maybe we could go get some tea. Get to know each other better?
Woman: I think you must have mistaken me for someone else. Someone who cares. Please excuse me.
Lorenz: Exquisite. Simply masterful. When is the wedding?
- The ending of Flayn and Seteth's C support. When Seteth inquires who is bothering Flayn, she responds that it's actually Seteth and walks away. Seteth is so shocked that he ends up repressing the memory of their conversation.
- Flayn and Raphael's supports involve the former seeking guidance as to how to become strong. Raphael suggests Flayn work on her battle cries, which leads to several scenes of Flayn trying to imitate Raphael's deep, full-bodied shouts with her adorable voice.
- Flayn and Linhardt's A-support has Linhardt suddenly proposing marriage to Flayn for the sake of Crest research (in this situation, to see what would happen if two people of the same Crest had children). Flayn is naturally shocked and exasperated at the offer. The kicker? Their paired ending reveals she did end up agreeing to it.
- Marianne reveals in her B support with Claude that the person she talks to most isn't a person, but Dorte the horse. It's both the blunt way she says it and Claude's slightly puzzled but amused acceptance of this.Claude: Ah, of course! Good ol' Dorte.
- Claude's B Support with Ignatz has them discussing what to do if the Goddess showed up, Claude suggests that if she did, he needs to be there for Ignatz's sake. To "smooth things over, have a nice chat, invite her to tea. Everything a goddess deserves." This gets extra-funny if you picture how Sothis would react if Claude invited her to tea.
- Linhardt spends almost the entirety of his C Support with Ferdinand deep in Sarcasm Mode, while Ferdinand is totally oblivious:Linhardt: As capable as you are striking. Next to you I am a mere infant.
Ferdinand: Oh, you are far too kind... Although I do work hard each day to achieve all of which you speak.
Linhardt: You've mastered all the important noble skills. You drink tea, talk about how great you are, ride horses...
Ferdinand: Indeed! I went for a ride earlier today.
Linhardt: Is that so? You'll have to tell me about it sometime, when I'm not walking away...
(Linhardt walks away.)
- Over the course of Raphael and Marianne's C support, Raphael goes from believing Marianne can speak "birdese" to believing some birds "speak human," which leads to Marianne finding him holding a one-sided conversation with a bird in their B support. Towards the end of their A support, Raphael tries making bird sounds to make it easier for Marianne to talk with him, which is both adorable and hilarious.
- Raphael's B Support with Lysithea has him imitating his sister Maya (who has a similar personality to Lysithea).Raphael: I'm so tough! I'm gonna stand my ground! I don't need help from anyone! And when things don't go my way, I'm gonna act all sad and moody!
- In Raphael's B Support with Dimitri, he ends up with some pretty bad muscle pain after trying Dimitri's insane training regimen. Until Dimitri points out what it actually is, Raphael thinks he's dying, and even then he's horrified.Raphael: I can't believe I was so mean to my muscles! I need to make it up to them! I gotta go eat some food so my muscles can get the nutrition they need! And I can't waste any more time talking about it!Dimitri: Hold on! What happened to your muscle pain? And if you eat too much, you'll give yourself a stomachache! Uh oh... He's headed straight for the stairs. I thought he could hardly walk with his muscles in that state...Raphael: *offscreen* Aaghh! My muscles!
- Manuela's C support with Byleth has her waking up after a bad date, loudly struggling to find and put her clothes back on, and walking out to receive a message that Byleth has for her... that there's not going to be a second date. Even funnier that at one point you can inform her you can HEAR everything going on.
- Catherine and Shamir's C support, during which Catherine recalls their first meeting, where Catherine introduced herself and struck up friendly conversation, and Shamir replied, "Hi. I'm Shamir."
- Byleth's supports with Lorenz are pretty amusing. It starts with Byleth confronting Lorenz because several girls have complained that Lorenz has been harassing them to go out with him. He denies it at first, but then admits that after the first time they said no, he waited only a day before asking them again, "like a gentleman would." Byleth's blatantly more exasperated dialogue options are extremely funny, but what clenches it is when Lorenz claims that all these complaints are just a conspiracy to ruin his position as a noble. Byleth's facial expression at the end of Lorenz's C support with them is priceless.
- Byleth's A support with Edelgard starts with a gut-buster when Edelgard grumbles about Hubert keeping her busy and does a mocking imitation of his speaking patterns.Edelgard: Your Majesty, you must know your supreme talents are needed at present. Why not gaze at these documents instead of the sky?
- Caspar and Linhardt's C support basically evokes the classic "my dad can beat up your dad" argument. It ends with Caspar running off to disprove Linhardt's point about height advantages in a fight...only to be soundly beaten. Linhardt's closing remark sells it.Linhardt: So it's as I said, then, isn't it? The tallest fighter has the advantage...and my father could beat yours in a fight.
- Even more amusing after the timeskip, where despite Caspar undergoing a growth spurt while Linhardt remains the same height, the latter is STILL taller. Caspar will comment on his increase of height if you get the support post-timeskip, but still ends up losing badly.
- In Dimitri and Annette's C support, Annette reveals that her father told her a lot of stories about Dimitri. When Dimitri asks what sort of stories he told her, she starts to talk about a story from his childhood. Dimitri instantly changes his mind and tells her never mind.
- Ingrid and Claude, throughout their supports, never stop criticizing each other's behavior. Their paired ending says that despite being king and queen of Almyra, they argued frequently, and "the queen chasing the fleeing king through the palace was a common occurrence".
- During Claude and Lysithea's B Support, you get treated to this rather amusingly fitting voice goof.Claude: See, there's a graveyard over here. Might run into some of those ghoooosts you hate so mu-he-he-ch...!
- Even better, during a Reddit AMA, Joe admitted the chuckle was unscripted. They clearly liked it, because they left it in!
- Leonie and Sylvain's C support shows that Leonie is such a tomboy, Sylvain doesn't even bother hitting on her, much to her anger.Leonie: Now, hold on! How come it's not rude for you to just pass ''me'' by?! Look at me! I'm a girl, you know!
Sylvain: Uh... Oh, I see. A girl. You're... a girl. Huh.
- Ashe's C support with Byleth is mostly just an interesting conversation with Ashe about a story he looked up to. Then the book is stolen from Anna, who indeed still carries the legacy of the Fire Emblem merchant sisters, prompting her to yell out:Anna: Cut him in half like my prices!
- Shamir and Catherine's A+ support, while also tragic and heartwarming, have Shamir catching the dreaded Thunderstrike Catherine completely off guard and gasping for fresh air by (jokingly) proposing marriage to her, warning that if she accepts Shamir "may tire" of her.
- In Manuela and Seteth's C Support, when he has come to lecture her about having gotten drunk and needing to be carried to her room by students, she tries to excuse herself by claiming she has something to do, only for Seteth to counter that he already checked and knows she didn't.
- In their A support, Manuela walks in on Seteth praying to Saint Cethleann, and comes to the conclusion that he's in love with her. While she attempts to console him on how hard it must be to have feelings for someone who died hundreds of years ago, Seteth just stands there looking like he wants to die. Knowing that Seteth and Flayn are actually Cichol and Cethleann makes it even funnier.
- One support with Cyril has him mention he forgot to eat. One option is to give him some meat... and of course Cyril asks "...how come you're carrying THAT around?"
- After Dorothea realizing that she thinks of Caspar like a little brother, who considers it to be embarrassing, she tries to get him to call her big sis. He initially refuses but relents, and when she calls him adorable he runs off embarrassed.Dorothea: Well done, Caspar! You're such a cute little boy! I'm proud to have you as a sibling!
Caspar: I'm not cute, and I'm NOT little. How would you feel if I made YOU call me "big bro"?
Dorothea: Oh? Well, I wouldn't mind that at all, big bro.
Dorothea: Something wrong, big bro?
Caspar: Ughhh, this is the WORST. (runs off as Dorothea laughs)
- Manuela finds some of Lorenz's written poetry and enjoys it, but when she brings it up to him Lorenz completely drops his usual collected air and hurriedly takes it back while asking her to forget she ever saw it. Later, Lorenz hears Manuela singing and muses at the beauty of her voice...until he realizes that she's singing his poetry, prompting him to launch a Rapid-Fire "No!" and beg her to not reveal who wrote it if she must insist on singing it.
- For the B-Support in particular, Lorenz before he realizes Manuela put his poetry to lyrics makes a comment on how Manuela would be able to fit into high society...had it not been for drinking and lack of manners.
- Byleth and Dedue's C-Support is particularly great. It turns out Dedue has a soft spot for flowers and was tending to the Greenhouse as a chore, while Byleth came in simply to admire. Dedue is able to detect Byleth's presence without even turning around, and both exchange "..."s several times. It's like something out of a Dark Brotherhood dialogue exchange. Through the conversation, Byleth admits Dedue's difficult to hold a conversation with.
- In Ignatz and Petra's B support, Petra is curious about trying on his glasses (as nobody in Brigid has bad eyesight, or at least nobody who survives does). Not only do we get cute art of Ignatz without glasses and Petra with them, but Petra proceeds to get nauseous, falls over with Ignatz and with complete sincerity decides they are like Heroes Relics that only certain people can use.
- Dedue and Flayn's A-Support ends with Flayn deciding to try out a series of cutesy pet names for Dedue.
- Hilda and Seteths C-support is everything youd expect from a conversation between the two of them. Seteth approaches Hilda and questions every instance of her avoiding various things, and her corresponding excuses. Near the end we get this gem.Seteth: I seem to recall, also, that you declined to participate in a mock battle. That was due to a headache, yes?
Hilda: I have a very fragile body, you see. [obviously fake and exaggerated coughing] Its so kind of everyone to be accommodating.
- The conclusion of Seteth and Hanneman's B support becomes doubly funny when one considers that when Seteth laments being made a fool of "by a man of your age" he is likely calling Hanneman young rather than old because Seteth is far, far older than Hanneman.
- Flayn's S support has her getting distracted by the technicalities of the male Byleth having the female Sothis' spirit inside of him, and asks at one point if this makes Byleth a male goddess.
- Manuela and Cyril's B support has Cyril come across Manuela while she's hungover. Cyril, assuming she's too inebriated to know he's there, tries to pretend he did't see anything, only for her stop him with an audible slur in her voice (she also has slightly messed up hair in her character portraits while hungover). After getting some water and medicine, she seems sober again, only to go on a spiel about she'll be there for Cyril when he goes through the same heartbreak experience she usually goes through. Cyril, who is 22 years younger than her, is perturbed by this to say the least and tries to decline her offer and go about his business. Veronica Taylor's delivery in the English dub makes the support even funnier.
- In Dimitri's S support when he proposes to female Byleth she's stunned, widening her already big doe eyes. Dimitri takes her shock as a rejection and pleads that if she is going to reject him, say it now and he'll accept her decision. Female Byleth's response...is to propose to him right back leaving him in stunned silence. The camera lingers on his widened, blue eye before he suggests that they should exchange rings to make it official. Now you know why Uno Reverse/No u memes are so popular with the Blue Lions route.
- In Mercedes' C-support with Jeritza, she tries to wipe crumbs off Jeritza's face. The horrifying, bloodthirsty Death Knight is promptly reduced to an embarrassed child in the face of his older sister.
- Several of the Twitter announcements for the English voice actors are rather hilarious.
- Joe Zieja as Claude: Before making the statement, he climbs up on something and delivers the announcement upside-down. In fact, Joe Zieja has fully embraced the 'Upside-Down Claude' meme, and even did it in a picture, behind held up by fellow voice actors Tara Platt (Edelgard) and Chris Hackney (Dimitri).
- Patrick Seitz (who was a high school English teacher for two years) as Jeritza: "In addition to directing duties, I also voice this fellowas that is the exact face *I* used to make when I caught my students plagiarizing entire essays off of the internet."
- Ben Diskin as Lorenz takes the cake. "I play Lorenz! (AKA That guy who shows up to your birthday party, says, 'My presence is my present,' hits on your girlfriend, eats your food, drinks your booze, tells you his parties are better, and doesn't understand why everyone hates him.)"
- Diskin's post for Caspar is hilarious as well. "AKA That guy who buys platform shoes because he thinks it'll make him look tall but just winds up looking like a short guy with weird taste in footwear and runs around flexing on anyone who calls him out for it."
- Erica Lindbeck (Celica) has a thirst for men in eyepatches and wrote this hilarious fanfiction of her and Dimitri. She later clarified that "things between Alm and Celica are just fine" as Kyle McCarley (Alm) looks very disgruntled in the background.
- Mark Whitten (Seteth) reads Seteth memes in character as Seteth, commenting on such things as Edelgard griefing in Minecraft and being trapped in a McDonald's PlayPlace with Flayn. And then fanart of the latter gag surfaced (up to and including a brief animation), with Whitten positively enjoying it.
- And now there's a Minecraft edit!
- Polygon published an article reporting that the Black Eagles were the most popular house, which promptly started a meme war.
- Joe Zieja's hilarious call to arms.
- Chris Hackney (Dimitri) calmly and coolly responds to Zieja.
- Allegra Clark shows off why she was cast as Dorothea (and Shamir) with her impressive vocal chops.
- Zieja actually provides a full accompaniment to her vocals for the complete version of Carmen: Hoes Mad Edition.
- Erica Mendez (Bernadetta) joins the fray.Mendez: If you say the Black Eagles arent the best House... then Im sorry Deer, but youre just Lion to yourself.
- Faye Mata (Petra) also gives her add to it, with Petra-style talk.Mata: I have apologies... I apologize for not having the understanding that hoes are feeling the mad. Please explain.
- Khoi Dao (Wolt) posted a hilarious video taunting Chris Hackney and the Blue Lions. Hackney was not amused.Dao: Hey, Chris... [posts a sticky note reading "BLUE LIONS SUCK"] Read it and weep, loser! BLACK EAGLES RULE!!!
Hackney: I WILL NOT SUFFER THIS FALSE PROPAGANDA, KHOI! Your reign of terror will soon be at an end...
- Erica Mendez nails her Bernadetta cosplay.
- Flayn's notorious appetite for fish has been the subject of many a meme. One such crossover image has Byleth and Joker take a picture while holding up a large fish they've caught, only for Morgana and Flayn to dash towards it in the follow-up picture. Even her voice actress (Deva Marie Gregory) acknowledged it.
- Joe Zieja does it again with a parody of Dimitri's typical problem solving methods. Becomes even funnier considering Zieja auditioned for the role of Dimitri before being cast as Claude.
- This Twitter thread showcasing the cast if they had Twitter accounts will leave you reeling. Highlights include:
- Claude and Dimitri make puns on their house names, only for Edelgard to simply respond with "Eagle".
- Hilda posts a picture of a bald Lorenz. Lorenz's response is... not very noble.
- Ignatz posts a tweet in a rather prose manner, only for Raphael (who has Big Chungus as his icon) to casually ask him if he wants to go to "Waffle House". He gets over 65,500 replies.
- Byleth somehow tweets from a Teutates Pike, a.k.a. a fish.Byleth: test
Claude: Teach is this tomorrow's lesson plan or do you just need some help
Petra: Am I reading this wrong? Is the website saying that you have made this post with using a fish?
Flayn: HOW DID YOU DO THIS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PROFESSOR!!!!!
- Petra changes her username from "petrasthoughts" to "petrasthots" by Sylvain's suggestion, and Petra is utterly oblivious to the attention she's getting.
- Hilda and Dorothea plan to skip class, only for Byleth to reply, causing Hilda to block them in a panic, and leads Sylvain to want to DM them.
- Flayn complains about how Seteth apparently broke the wrist of a boy she was having tea with, leading Annette to ask if she needs help, much to Linhardt's annoyance, as he was the one with the broken wrist!
- Where's Felix? He got banned for sending death threats to Dimitri and Ashe. Twice.
- Byleth tweets about being hungry and asks their students to bring them a bagel, bribing them with extra credit. They end up with 24 bagels. And they're still tweeting from the Teutates Pike!
- Ashe adopts a dog and names it "Beaglegard", prompting a furious Hubert to demand that he change the name right this instant or else become an enemy of the Empire. Once Ashe asks for suggestions, practically everyone, including Byleth, tells him to name the dog "Hubert". Hubert is annoyed at how even Byleth has no issue messing with him like that.
- Annette and Mercedes show their affection for one another in an adorable manner, only for Sylvain to casually ask if they're up for a threesome. He gets blocked.
- Seteth is named "Staff Member of the Year", and the tweet asks everyone what is admirable about him. Manuela starts talking about how... intimately she knows Seteth, leading Byleth to freak out at her for tweeting something so... scandalous, which leads Flayn to ask what everyone's freaking out about, much to Cyril and Marianne's horror! Poor Flayn's response at the end is simply ":(".
- Claude makes a flirty tweet about Hilda, and then tries to flirt with Dimitri, but unfortunately, Dimitri assumes Claude is simply trying to mess with him, leading to Claude somehow tweeting from Failnaught, a.k.a. his BOW!
- Cyril notes how he wanted to use a picture of Rhea, but people told him it looked weird, so he ends up using a picture of Pit, because of how similar Palutena is to Rhea, instead. Cue Sylvain, yet again, making a hilariously inappropriate comment connecting Palutena and Rhea together, which leads Cyril to immediately ask Lysithea how to block him. In the end, Sylvain is left wondering why he can't catch a break lately... leading Felix (who's on his fourth account) and Ingrid to coldly insult him, with only Ashe actually trying to comfort him.
- Sylvain makes a vaguely bragging tweet. Petra clarifies in a DM to Dorothea that Sylvain scored with her, but broke down crying during sex and went on a half-hour tangent about how crests ruined his life before they could continue. And somehow, this wasn't even the low point of the night. Dorothea is left keysmashing in confusion.
- Marianne is feeling down in the dumps after a breakup. Claude's response, while heartfelt, also has him asking Marianne if seeing him do a backflip off his roof would make her feel better.
- The entirety of the Garreg Mach Edu Twitter account, done in the parody of an actual school account for Garreg Mach.
- Cherami Leigh (Rhea) does her take on the Seteth Says meme.
- This game's soundtrack has been hit with constant copyright claims on Youtube. People are circumventing those with titles clarifying that their video is definitely not a Three Houses soundtrack of any kind and meme thumbnails. It's hilariously in-character for Golden Deer to have uploads of its final boss theme beat the system through the power of memes.
- Joe Zieja and Allegra Clark come full-circle and review fan memes.
- Anime Impulse's video of bowling with the cast definitely qualifies. Several moments include:
- Billy Kametz (Ferdinand von Aegir) consistently failing to knock down his remaining pins
- Deva Marie (Flayn) dropping an F-Bomb when Joe Zieja gets a strike.Deva: WHAT THE FUCK!?
Joe: [does a small but extravagant bow in response]
- Mark Whitten (Seteth) going through his game plan to get a strike in-character.Mark: My game plan is to... have a concentrated approach. Right down the center. Slightly off to the right, just at the end. I will knock all of the pins down. And everyone will rejoice. *turns around to look at everyone* No one's paying attention.
- As he bowls you can hear someone shouting "YAS SETETH!" and he actually gets the strike!
- Billy sliding around in his bowling shoes and Mark tying Deva's own bowling shoes in a typical Seteth-and-Flayn interaction.
- The cameraman amusingly pointing out Joe's current score.Cameraman: Sixty-Nine!
Joe: [shrugs] What can I say?
- Everyone entering their character names into the scoreboard instead of using their actual names.
- Just how many strikes Joe got throughout the video is funny/awesome in itself.Everyone the next time Joe rolls: GO! GO! GO! GO!
- Joe, Allegra, and Mark at the end of the video:Joe: [puts his hands behind his head so they resemble antlers] FEAR THE DEER!
Allegra: [jumps in front of him] NO, NO, NO! Stop that! Stop that bullshit!
Mark: [mimicking an eagle flying behind her] Actually, wait... [does prayer hands] Actually, Fear the Church! Fear the Church!
- If you look at the scoreboard carefully at the end of the video you'll see that Joe got 107 while Mark's has 116, Fear the Church indeed...
- Joe Zieja (again) and Mark Whitten did a YouTube bit where they imitated each other's characters. Zieja first read a couple of Seteth Says memes (including one delightfully meta one where Seteth asks Byleth to investigate the increasing number of Seteth Says memes), and then they moved onto a support conversation; however, since Claude and Seteth don't have any support conversations together, they instead did a Claude/Hilda support, with Zieja playing the role of Hilda. Zieja's Seteth and Whitten's Claude impressions were both extremely good, demonstrating their talent as voice actors. Zieja's Hilda was... less impressive, ultimately sounding like some unholy mix of Julia Child, Mickey Mouse, and Kermit the Frog.
- Anime Impulse uploaded a parody of Red Velvet's sneaky eating challenge. The roster is comprised of Joe Zieja (Claude), Chris Hackney (Dimitri), and Christian La Monte (Ignatz) acting as the Holy Alliance, Billy Kametz (Ferdinand von Aegir), Allegra Clark (Dorothea), and Faye Mata (Petra) representing the Black Eagles and Mark Whitten (Seteth) and Deva Marie (Flayn) representing the Church of Seiros. They're even dressed as their characters in varying degrees, between wearing t-shirts the color of their house, Allegra wearing Dorothea's signature hat, Faye wearing Petra's braided ponytail, and Chris donning Dimitri's eye patch at one point. One of Impulse's crew members, Chell, is overseeing the challenge as female Byleth (she's even wearing a blue wig to match!) The result of all this combined is nothing short of chaotic hilarity.
- Chell conveniently has to turn her back on the class so she could right stuff on the board. The students are more than happy to let her and quickly start devouring their snacks before she can catch any of them
- Even the first question:Chell: What is Dimitri's favorite kind of cheese?Chris: Whatever's in his mouth at that moment.Chell: That's dirty. (everyone starts laughing)Chris: How dare you! ... But not wrong.Chell: Wrong. It's 'Brievenge'. (everyone laughs more)Mark: A dish best served cheese.Chris: Brie every last one of them!
- A question for Allegra:Chell: When Shamir is watching people from a distance, does that make her Shafar? [Joey and Billy put their heads down while Fay starts laughing]Allegra: Only if she Sha-ever you are
- It only gets better (and more hilarious!): Anime Impulse uploaded another version of this challenge. The only difference is that they changed the mode from Casual to MADDENING! While Chell allowed them to get off easy in Casual, in Maddening Mode, they're automatically disqualified for any "super suspicious activity"!
- Chell immediately gets the ball rolling by dropping a couple of swears.Chell: [pointing to the class with her baton like a weapon] I better not see any of you fuckers eating!
Everyone: [assorted laughs and scandalized gasps]
Christian: I think we're legally allowed to leave...!
Mark: Um, she is the teacher, she can say whatever she wants...
Chell: [twirling baton while smiling] Damn fucking right!
- When Chell asks Chris what's the name of Dimitri's canonical spouse:
- Joe and Chris attempt to give Allegra the deuce cap. First Chris accusing her of hiding snacks in her bra and her actually looking down and declaring "There's nothing in there but tiddy!"
- The second one involves Joe possibly putting a Cheez-it snack on her desk to frame her. Afterwards, Faye tries to distract Chell by pointing out how great she looks in Ignatz's glasses. It doesn't work and it looks like the Black Eagles are going to lose another member but Faye's distraction gives Allegra enough time to pull out a hidden trump card: because she voices two characters in the game, she promptly switches from Dorothea's voice to Shamir's to evade getting the cap. Chell is appropriately caught off-guard.Chris: Are you actually talking back to Teacher?
Allegra: I'm Shamir, I can do whatever I want. I'm not one of your students.
- Right after she says that the screen pauses on her smug expression, turns black and white, with text at the bottom, "she GOT us with a loop hole...Shamir doesn't take orders from anyone. Allegra gets a pass." Followed by them animating sunglasses on Allegra with the words FEAR SHAMIR. And if you look slightly to the left you can see Chris slack-jawed and wide-eyed at Allegra's evasion and Joe still putting the cap on her with absolute serious intent.
- Chris' clapbacks to most of the other VA's in the MADDENING version qualify. This first one goes to Billy:Billy: [lying to cover up the fact he was eating] Yeah, I got into a fight...cuz I'm a really tough guy. [Press X to Doubt text appears]
Faye: Chris got into a fight too before! Look at his eye!
Chris: BUT I DON'T BITCH ABOUT IT! TOUGHEN UP!
- Not even a full minute after:Chris: I KEEP MY TRAUMA ON THE INSIDE THANK YOU. [followed by a clip of Dimitri shouting "KILL EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM!"]
- When Allerga starts snarking at him:Chris: Why don't you go sing a song someone cares about? Back off!
Christian: Mark's got a collection of songs...
Chris: Is one of the 'Bitch Get Back'? Cause one of them should be.
- And right after Allegra sings another rendition of her 'hoes mad' song:Chris: Don't make me switch this [points to eyepatch] to the other eye! I'll get serious!
- Chell immediately gets the ball rolling by dropping a couple of swears.
- The fact the update that included adding Jeritza as a playable character launched on...November 7th, aka Linhardt's birthday. note
- One youtuber discovered that in game, there is an actual, no joke, modifier for the female party members breasts after the timeskip, which is because the character models are alerted for the timeskip. According to the results, Bernadetta developed the most of any character for the timeskip, and Manuela has the largest followed by Hilda.
