The Comic:

  • As gruesome as the "Road to Hell" miniseries is, some of the brutality is so over the top it almost crosses the border into Narm and becomes darkly humorous. For instance, Ruth and Hoss beating the shit out of each other with LIVING SOLDIERS and some of the stuff Malachi and Daniel say to each other.
    Daniel: I wonder why so many of them turn to Satan the second they have some trouble?
    Malachi: Because they are FOOLS, the whole pathetic, stinking, lustful lot. It's like I always told you, Daniel... we should've stuck with the dinosaurs.

  • In a crossover between the two Ghost Riders and Deadpool, Deadpool is hired to kill the abusive owner of a Freak Circus. Said owner ends up possessed by a demon, forcing Deadpool and the Riders to team up. In the end, Deadpool manages to help them eliminate the demon without killing the owner... only for him to show how much of an asshole he is, causing Deadpool to kill him anyway. The Riders, having witnessed this, choose to see it as an "accident" and let Deadpool get away with it.


The film:

  • "YES! YES! YES!" Then Johnny drives out of the arena... "...WHERE IS HE GOING!"
  • After beating a bunch of criminals to a pulp upon turning into Ghost Rider, he turns and points at the only guy in the cell that didn't try and attack him.
    Ghost Rider: YOU. INNOCENT.
    (leaves cell. Kid faints)
    • Right before, the Ghost Rider confronts the guy who led the beat-down of him as Johnny Blaze, which tore his current jacket.
      Ghost Rider: NICE JACKET. (Puts it on) ...VERY NICE...!
  • After walking out of the prison, Ghost Rider stops when a cop hits him with his nightstick. Rider turns to him, puts his jaw back in place, and points...and wags his finger with an "Mmm-mmm-mmm...!"
  • "Morning, Bonehead."
    • During the ensuing chase he escapes the police by jumping in the river. He rises out of the water, bike and all only to to look up at the police still on the bridge so he can laugh and flip them off.
  • Roxanne in the restaurant waiting for Johnny. Among other bits, she brought a Magic 8 Ball with her.
  • The mugging victim explains that her rescuer's head was a burning skull.
    "I mean, it was an edge look, but he totally pulled it off."
    • Her flame sound effects and awkward dance also qualify.

  • Ghost Rider telling the guy in the helicopter "You're pissing me off!" and the guy profusely apologizing before booking it. Mind you, the pilot is seeing his helicopter being dragged by an angry, flaming skeleton.
  • Johnny looking at himself in the mirror and trying his best to Hulk Out, as it were. He starts by chomping while baring his teeth... and then pressing up his nose (so he more resembles a skull) and chomping... and then trying to startle himself in the mirror with a "BOOGABOOGABOOGA!!!"
    • And when he manages to summon some fire willingly... that's when Roxanne shows up. Johnny throws the fire ball away. Roxanne comes in... and asks if there's something burning.


  • Marvel had a swimsuit special from 1991 to 1995 staring hit characters ranging from Colossus of the X-Men to Captain America to The Punisher. When it came for Johnny to strike a pose in the 1993 issue he decided to do his best. The picture shown was Ghost Rider lying on his side as naked as the day he was born on the sand as the waves lap at his lower legs. Yes, they had somebody paint a naked, burning skeleton for a swimsuit magazine.

How well does it match the trope?
