    Daily Life Arc (Chapters 1-60, Episodes 1-19, 27-33, 66-73) 
  • In the third chapter after Tsuna saves Gokudera's life Gokudera becomes devoted to Tsuna and says he'll place his life in his hands. Tsuna doesn't want this but Gokudera glares at him and Tsuna is shown thinking "Too...Too afraid to refuse...What kind of situation is this..."
  • Nobody can ever forget the fifth episode where the art is so bad that it spawned a lot of memes on the fandom. And images of Gokudera (or Gowadera) is rampant everywhere.
  • Haru's reaction to when she first saw adult!Lambo.
    Haru: "Ahh! He's completely sexed-up! Stay away!"

Later, Pantera attacks Naito out of nowhere with Magusta explaining that it's an everyday occurrence to them.
  • Then there's the "Bowling" chapter, where Longchamp invites Tsuna and Gokudera to go on a three person blind date. Of course, Longchamp's idea of a "cute" girl has always been... unique. So the three girls he invited were absolutely hideous (one of them even being Reborn in an ugly drag). The whole chapter pretty much consists of Tsuna and all of his Bishōnen guardians / male friends coming by, being horrified by how ugly these women are, and then trying to run away from them as the women aggressively pursue them.

  • In the Pole-Knocking Chapter, Ryohei forcefully nominates Tsuna to be the team captain much to Tsuna's despair. Tsuna tries to get out of it with a cold, but Reborn orchestrates events that turned class B and C against him and even had Hibari be the captain. Tsuna lost, obviously, but not before being beaten up by everyone

    Tsuna: "He just noticed it right now?!"

    • The fact that the normally relaxed-to-a-fault Yamamoto goes red.

    Hibari: "Those eyebrows are against school regulations. I'll bite you to death."

    Lambo: "It looks like a shiny die."
    Chrome: "It's not."
  • Bel mocks Squalo for "forgiving" Fran for his slight not long after. Everyone proceeds to rib him for it:
    Bel: "Captain, you've got a big heart. That frog called you a 'stupid long-haired captain' and you still forgave him."

  • While the girls are having their strike, Tsuna and his guardians have to do they chores themselves. It proves to be harder than they though as they managed to screw up every single tasks.
  • Squalo giving Dino a tuna as a souvenir. Tsuna's reaction is the best "Why a tuna?"
    • The absolutely nonchalant way he hands it over ("It's a gift.") is what sells this scene. Then he goes and beats Yamamoto into unconsciousness, hauling his limp body off like a sack of potatoes for some training. The whole scene is only a few minutes long.

  • When protecting Yuni, Squalo and Hibari step up to protect her and Tsuna. Except Squalo is more in front and didn't notice Hibari. Hibari, instead of beating Squalo, pokes him with his tonfa and tells him to get out of his way. It's his vaguely polite expression and Squalo's reply to being poked that makes the scene funny:
    Squalo: "Stop poking me!"
  • The Varia's reactions when they learned that Squalo became missing in action. Gokudera is not amused.

  • Colonnello and Lal Mirch show up on the school rooftop to explain the trials, but decided to fight each other first and both kicking Tsuna to the ground as well.

  • Ryohei and Aoba being forced by Reborn to answer some questions in Tsuna's room.

  • Enma actually manages to sew his pant sleeves together, much to Tsuna's shock
  • When they first meet, Gokudera thinks Shitt. P. is really an UMA (that is, an Unidentified Mysterious Animal) and continues to think this from then on to Tsuna's surprise. Sometime later, Gokudera fights her and it's revealed after the battle she thinks he is an UMA (specifically, she thinks he's a "warm UMA"). Gokudera and Tsuna are both hilariously shocked by this.

  • In Chapter 342, Reborn and Mukuro (who is still trapped in his owl, mind you) pull themselves up. Mukuro thanks Reborn for helping him up, saying he owes him a lot. Reborn agrees, then punting Owl!Mukuro like a ball.

  • There's something hilariously cute about Mammon wearing a little sun hat when going to go pick up Fran with the rest of the Varia. Note that Mammon is wearing it and the hood of the robe. Thereby implying someone (likely Bel) stuck the hat on for some reason, and Mammon just didn't care to remove it.
  • Chapter 347 gives us the following:
    "That was the frog who said Levi was a gross-bearded nasty-nose haired molester who should just die!"
    "You don't have to say that much!"
  • Chapter 348 gave us the following from Fran, plus Mukuro's reaction to it.
    Fran: (to Mukuro) "That threw me for a loop. I'm surprised, that on this mountain there would be a pineapple fairy."
    • Two pages later, Chikusa has to restrain Mukuro from murdering Fran, and Bel is ready to kill him, too]]. Hell, the entire chapter consists of Fran driving the Varia and the Kokuyo gang up the metaphorical wall, including the normally stoic Chikusa, after Fran calls him an eraser due to his complexion.
  • In Chapter 351, I don't blame Tsuna for running. This is surely a trap:

  • Mukuro and Fran wearing fruit on their heads. Note that Verde is there, too.
  • Chapter 366: Byakuran's attempt at searching for Mukuro involves blowing up a random car. Cue person running out of it while on fire.

  • Chapter 370:
    • Technically, it is true that Reborn didn't see him.
      • Later, Reborn kicks Gokudera for calling him crazy for fighting with a dislocated shoulder and asks Tsuna a question. Tsuna doesn't pick up on the contradiction.
  • Chapter 380: Everyone's reactions to Flan sleeping. Even Mukuro gets Blank White Eyes!

  • Reborn encouraging Tsuna to give his all in defeating Jager by showing of his test with a zero score much to his embarrassment, even in his Hyper Dying Will mode. Reborn even shows it off after the battle, which makes Mukuro chuckle at it and M.M. even asks if it the same Tsuna that they see fighting.
  • Tsuna cannot tell who Adult!Reborn is. Chapter 402, and the Arcobaleno are doing their job to make sure it stays that way.

  • The last chapter has Reborn leaving Tsuna for a week, only to return and declare that he will be training Tsuna as the "Neo Vongola Primo" instead.

  • Fran's Image Song, Special Illusion, is basically a song about fucking with people for the fun of it, specifically mentioning Bel twice.
  • Speaking of image songs, Gokudera's song, "...loop" sounds like something he was goaded into singing at a karaoke bar by Ryohei and Yamamoto. If only because the pace and melodramatic way in which he sings is so out of step with Gokudera. He even expresses disbelief he sung at the end of the song.
  • The Varia singing "Tatta Latta" which is sung by the girls in the series. And if one searches the net, you can see the live version where the Varia voice actors sing and dance with it.
  • The Haru Haru Dangerous interviews has a lot of funny moments, for example Yamamoto revealing that they name their cuisines by color and Mukuro unnerved by Haru's cosplays.

Example of:
