Funny / Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

Go To

Per wiki policy, Spoilers Off applies here and all spoilers are unmarked. You Have Been Warned.

  • When you get to Castle of Dreams in Ven's story, the poor kid gets stuck in the mouse trap that captured Gus in the movie!
    Ven: Somebody tell me how I got so SMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL!!!
  • Pretty much any scene involving Zack.
    Zack: Hey, how about one date?
    Aqua: Oh! You mean?... No.
  • Also, this:
    Ven: (to Hercules) I'll come back when you're a hero.
    Zack: Don't you mean when we'll both be heroes?
    Ven: Oh, so you mean never come back?
  • Ventus's visit to the Dwarf Woodlands has him play a minigame where he has to find the seven Dwarfsnote  due to them mistaking Ventus for a diamond thief. Each react towards Ventus approaching them according to their personalities, some of which border on funny - Happy runs away when his box's hit, Grumpy attempts to ram into Ventus before running away, Sneezy constantly sneezes, causing his hiding spot to leap everywhere, Sleepy sleeps within his hiding spot and doesn't even try to run away from Ventus when he approaches, Doc always runs away when approached and Bashful rides in a minecart instead of actually trying to hide.
  • "He said I should bring... two grownups." Even funnier in the Japanese version, where Ven says he was told to bring his parents.
    • His deadpan delivery in the dub didn't hurt.
    • The expression on his face is just priceless.
  • Terra's first scene in Dwarf Woodlands has him briefly mistaking Snow White's heart with the metaphysical heart while the Queen was really referring the literal one. No, he doesn't accuse her like anyone would logically do if the Queen had the same desire like Maleficent, he flat-out politely asks her if she's also after the hearts of light. Unlike what you may think about him, Terra did quickly figure out that the Queen is evil but decide to play along with her to find Snow White.
  • Terra spotting Mickey Mouse when he visits the Mysterious Tower to get Yen Sid's advice. Mickey runs out the door of the tower, grabs the Star Shard out and it sends him off to who knows where with him screaming the whole time. Terra just watches the Unusually Uninteresting Sight with a deadpan expression and then heads into the tower.
    • Given that Mickey never uses it again, it's implied that, even after a decade at the time of Dream Drop Distance, he still doesn't know how to use the damn thing!
  • When Ventus is dropped into Mysterious Tower by the Star Shard and ushered into Yen Sid's office. The old wizard reveals that he has been in contact with Eraqus, and knows that Ventus was ordered to go home by his master. Ventus is sheepish and bashful but agrees. With a sardonic smile, Yen Sid says, "Mickey finds it difficult to follow orders as well."

  • In Deep Space, just before Aqua's fight with Gantu:
    Stitch: *indecipherable gibberish*
    Gantu: I am just big boned!
  • Another one from early on:
    Terra: Oy, sometimes you are such a girl.
    Aqua: Hey, what do you mean, "sometimes"?
  • Hades has a couple when filling out Terra's Olympus games entry form
    • His response to learning Terra's name: "Kinda earthy, but alright."
    • "What's this? "Favorite god"? Pfft, come on. "Hades.""
  • Phil messing up his numbers yet again ("I got two words for ya: Student. Teacher. Ratio."), followed by Ventus confusedly counting off the words on his fingers, just like the audience is probably doing. Doubles as a Shout-Out to the original movie.
    • Even funnier when it really is just two words in Greek: Λόγος φοιτητών (read as Lógos foititón).
  • The end of Terra's story in the Dwarf Woodlands. After refusing the Queen's order to bring her Snow White's heart and telling her off to her face, she forces him to fight the Spirit of the Magic Mirror. Terra beats it, escapes, threatens the Queen to make the Mirror answer his question ("Where is Master Xehanort?"), and when it gives him a vague and unhelpful answer, Terra leaves with one final bit of snark; "Thanks. You've been a big help."
  • The Break Time deck command. It involves you timing button pressing to heal continuously, but the Funny Moment is what the trio does for it. Breakdancing, baton-twirling, and vertical push-ups.
  • In Ven's story, there is his meeting with Lea and Isa (a.ka. Axel and Saix).
    • He drops the Wooden Keyblade and Lea picks it up and gives it back to him and immediately pulls out his frisbees and says to fight him. Ven wins.
    • Isa berating Lea after his fight with Ven. It's mainly the way he says it!
      Isa: From where I stood, the only thing you drew was a big "L" on your forehead for 'Loser', 'Lame', 'Laughable'...
    • Just later, Lea mentions that he wants everyone he meets to remember him so he can live forever in their memories.
      Isa: I know I won't forget you. Believe me, I try all the time.
      Lea: (smugly) See? I'm immortal!
    • Considering Lea's nobody is an Ensemble Dark Horse and his status as one has kept him from being killed off more than once, his strategy seems to be working on a meta level.
    • The last time we see Isa and Lea in-game, they're preparing to sneak into Ansem's castle. During the credits, they're shown being carried out by Aeleus while Lea struggles and Isa pouts before being tossed out the gates.
  • You can invoke one if you beat someone in silly ways. For example; beating That One Boss when you get them to charge into mines or putting the various bosses of each storyline to sleep in a notable aversion of Useless Useful Spells.
    • Defeating Iron Imprisoner IV with nothing but Sonic Impact would probably qualify a lot more if it wasn't the only way to defeat him.
  • Somewhere in the world, where humor lies extinct, one cat will supply moments of funny with his existence alone. That cat... is Captain Justice. "And that's 'justice' with a J."
    • Really, Pete is all around hilarious in this game. The best parts are his introductions, not just for how over the top they are, but because of the utterly blank expressions of his audience. They just have no idea.
    • Also hilarious when you consider how he became Maleficent's disciple. Minnie only placed him in that interdimensional prison cell as a time-out so he could cool his head. Maleficent found him there and assumed he MUST be a powerful and dangerous villain for being imprisoned there, not knowing he was little more than just a loudmouth troublemaker.
  • So Ventus arrives at Neverland unconscious and two of the Lost Boys and Tinker Bell find him. What does Tinker Bell try to do to wake him up? Kick him in the face.
  • Ven's look when Peter Pan says that gold and doubloons are worthless.
  • In Aqua's part of the story at Castle of Dreams. After helping Jaq get the key to Cinderella, she watches Lady Tremaine from a distance. Just as the Duke is leaving, she suddenly grows right back to normal size and falls down the stairs. She also tries to stall for time by offering to try the slipper herself, pointing out that she is a girl, when the Duke notes that she can't be the girl the Prince saw. It's pretty funny. Especially when Tremaine lampshades how awkward it is that Aqua BROKE INTO THEIR HOUSE!
    Aqua: WAHHHH!! (clunk)
    Anastasia: She's probably here to rob us!
    • A related moment that is also mildly awesome, Aqua comes acros their house after following them home when she sensed the darkness within them. She then overhears them trying to deny the fact that Cinderella lives there. Her response? She mutters "darkness lives here" or something similar and then summons her Keyblade with the full intent of charging in and bashing them over the heads with it! Had Cinderella's Fairy Godmother hadn't intervened with a more sensible solution, she likely would have, too! It should be noted that, at that point, they had done nothing that implied they were anything but normal, albeit incredibly terrible people.
    • Aqua trying on the slipper. While Aqua may or may not be an aversion to this trend, original characters in the Kingdom Hearts series seem to have really, REALLY huge feet, especially in comparison to dainty little Disney princesses.
    • The Unversed attack after the slipper scene provides a moment of likely unintentional comedy when the Tremaines are hit with one of the bombs. Their lengthy screams, coupled with the fact that the watching Cinderella and Aqua appear to be looking up, give the impression that the Tremaines were blasted off, Team Rocket style. Aqua's dead serious, poetic description of the event only adds to the humor.
  • Terra's story. Neverland.
    Terra: Tell me more about this boy. What's his name?
    Hook: Peter Pan!
  • Goofy can't get Ventus's name right, calling him Venquist, Ventilate, Veggie before Donald yells at him to just call him Ven.
  • The credits has a couple of funny scenes. One has Mickey pull out the star shard, only for Master Yen Sid to give an exasperated shrug. Especially makes sense when you realize the trouble using the star shard caused Yen Sid during the game, and also the fact that The Sorcerer's Apprentice is canon as of Dream Drop Distance, so it's far from the first time Yen Sid had to deal with Mickey's shenanigans.
    • Which probably explains why Yen Sid is so bloody calm at Mickey vanishing - he usually comes back in the end...
  • That horrible, hilarious moment when you get yo' ass whooped on Command Board... by Winnie-the-Pooh... who also has a move known as Mine Square.
  • One of the more powerful Keyblades obtained, the Sweetstack, is funny. It has a high attack and decent magic of 6 and 4 respectively, as well as a 100% Critical rate. It is only beaten by Void Gear in terms of strength and critical damage, No Name in magic and Ultima Weapon in both strength, magic and critical damage. The best part is that It looks like a stack of ice cream. Repeat, one of the most powerful Keyblades you can get in the game without having to beat some sort of super hard Bonus Boss is a stack of ice cream.
  • Olympus Coliseum. Zack asks Aqua out on a date, there's some awkward flames lighting up on her face, and Zack takes off before Hercules shows up. After a couple words about true heroes...
    Herc: I look at you and Zack, and I can tell there's something more.
  • Tinker Bell acting jealous around Aqua.
  • If you return to Never Land as Terra and talk to Peter Pan, he comments "Grownups can be real good at telling fibs. I'd be careful if I were you. You look like an easy guy to trick."
  • Though unintentional, there's something horribly funny about Ventus' reply to Vanitas regarding the former's attachment to his friends:
    Vanitas: It's always about your friends, isn't it?
    Ven: At least I have some!
    • Wow, Ven, wow. Spit takes were impossible to avoid the first time that came up. And then the fandom just ran with it.
  • When Braig is beaten by Terra and has his face all messed up, does he run away? No, he hops away like he's some kind of deranged kangaroo.
  • While he's not the only one to encounter all three members of the main trio in rapid succession, Merlin has a funny moment when, after Aqua shows up, he hastily explains that the book needed to awaken her powers is on the table and goes back inside. If you talk to him as Terra, he'll remark how "popular" he is to get three visitors on the same day.
  • Smee's entry in the Journals for this game becomes a moment of funny if you think about it. "Blunderer and blockhead he may be, but Smee never abandons his captain." Yeah, game? The movie's climax would like to have a word with you...
  • In every time he's fought except at the end of Ventus' storyline, Vanitas - one of the most threatening enemies in the game - is vulnerable to Magnet. A near Reality Warper made entirely out of darkness can be picked up in the air and made to circle helplessly around a black hole. He's also vulnerable to Aero spells, and Sleep. Quite a lot of bosses are vulnerable to Sleep, which at least makes thematic sense.
  • When Ven fights Captain Hook, much like in The first game, he can proceed to make Hook's day a living hell. Ventus can:
    • Hit Hook with nearly every single status effect in the book since he lacks any form of Contractual Boss Immunity
    • Repeatedly hit him with fire, which goes right for his rear. For extra fun you can also cast Ignite on him.
    • Even knock him off the platform at the crocodile... which will cause the crocodile to bite him.
  • The X-Blade explodes. This isn't just an explosion - this is a cover all the floor in streams of light and keyholes explosion, almost as if the X-Blade is saying "If I'm going out, I'm doing it in style!"
  • The Unversed are evil, world destroying monsters. So what do they do in Disney Town during Terra's trip? Kill people? Murder? Try to eat the heart of the world like the Heartless do in the future? Nope - all they do is race. Apparently the Unversed enjoy racing.
    • Apparently, they're healthy too, as they challenge Aqua to a game of flinging fruit into goals.
    • It says something when even the evil, world destroying monsters keep away from the game of Ice Cream Beat...
  • Scrooge says that "adventure is the mother of industry" implying that, while he came to Radiant Garden to make loads of money, he's also come just to have another adventure. It's implied that he's become bored... again.


How well does it match the trope?
