Behold the Funny Moments page. Unfortunately, this is not a Holy Grail Tablet.

  • If you're not bawling over the Hell Temple reward, which is a skimpy swimsuit followed by a portrait of Lemeza wearing it, you're most likely laughing your ass off.
    • In the remake, Lemeza actually gets to wear it outside of the scene where he obtains it, complete with incredibly silly alternate animations and special reactions from Xelpud and Mulbruk.
  • The tablets in the Gate of Time are rather amusing, most of them complaining about having to write the same information again. One simply reads something like "I'm sick of writing."
  • The remake's Hell Temple: Getting punched into a Land of Hell by a giant fist out of nowhere.

  • In the Steam version, there are four achievements for getting killed by instant-kill traps or getting punched by the aforementioned stone fist, all sharing the name "This is La-Mulana".
  • The computer saleswoman on the surface, if you don't complete transactions. "You're not buying? AW HELL NO IMMA TEAR YOU APART!"
    • The joke returns in the sequel. Since everyone has a portrait this time around, you get to see in full detail her NightmareFace.
  • The very end of the game, when Shorn STEALS THE TREASURE OF LA-MULANA FROM HIS SON.
  • One tablet in the Endless Corridor calls you a fool four times in a row.
  • The remake features two references to "bat curry", i.e. curry with a whole bat as an ingredient. It's cathartic for players who have played the original and want to render the bat population extinct for knocking them all over the goddamned place.

  • There's admittingly something chuckle-worthy at seeing Lemeza's toppled over sprite everytime he falls from a great enough height.
  • In the original Twin Labyrinths, there's a puzzle that's impossible to solve; you get around this by simply double-jumping up to the door. In the remake, you now have to actually solve the puzzle or you get struck by a Bolt of Divine Retribution. A tablet in the room explains, "Those that created this contraption are fools. They mistakenly created a puzzle that could not be solved. But after all this time, it has been rewritten. Those who fail to solve this puzzle shall be punished." The tablet could be referring not to any sort of in-universe entity, but the actual developers who designed the puzzle. In other words, the developers are trash-talking themselves for creating an impossible puzzle.


How well does it match the trope?
